Many advisors tell me that their clients say that they ‘don’t talk about money with their friends and family members.’ What they are actually saying is that they aren’t clear about the advisor’s process or how endorsing the advisor to someone else will ultimately reflect on them. Or, they are concerned that you will try to sell their acquaintance on buying an investment product and becoming a client. If that ever happens, use the misconception as an opportunity to re-frame their perception and start the process of helping them understand your commitment to stewardship rather than salesmanship. To accomplish that, say something like this:

Undoubtedly you have an agenda and on that agenda is probably a bullet that says "What's important to you?" Well, this is where you ask a prospective client where they see themselves, what are their goals, and what are they trying to accomplish?

It's a great interaction, but of course it's what every financial advisor does. But why swim in that pool of sameness? Instead, have it read "what's important to you - your FORM goals.” F.O.R.M is an acronym for family, occupation, recreation, and money. When you say to a prospective client that part of our process is to understand what really matters to our clients, and then you write out the acronym FORM and ask them specifically for the goals around family investment legacy, continuity and succession you begin to make it real and personal.

That's why financial independence matters. Financial independence – money - is a means to those ends. Clients can internalize that and lock it down and it makes you unique. By differentiating, you elevate yourself. Does this post resonate with you?

https://www.paretosystems.comI called a client of mine in Florida and got his voicemail. He had a very professional, pleasant greeting, but - right out of our Playbook at the end of the voicemail - he said “I return messages between 3 and 4 pm every day. If your matter is urgent, please contact so and so”. He is projecting to his clients and anybody else that he values and guards his time. The lesson is that, until you do, nobody else will.

Business growth is Darwinian, and I’m not talking about survival of the fittest. It’s who can adapt. The advisors who are adapting and capitalizing are taking a scalable growth model. They are saying “Why would I bring on 50 more clients when I can just bring on one advisor who has 50 to 100 clients?” They are going out and buying businesses, and there is a vein of gold there. They are also attracting advisors who are tired of the friction, so they are going to draft in behind the advisor’s process. These advisors turned their book into a business, driven by best practices, and they’re shifting from organic to scalable growth. It’s incredibly powerful.

Are you ready to adapt? Learn more about our Scalable Growth Process:
