The quickest way for a financial advisor to become an elite advisor is to model the Best Practices of Elite Advisors. This book is designed to serve that purpose; a road map for replicating the actions of the industry's elite. In a way, this book will serve as your surrogate role model. Why is this necessary, you might ask? Because top producers of yesteryear are not necessarily role models for acquiring and developing loyal affluent clients today. This is a new world. In today's environment, relationship management and relationship marketing are inextricably linked. Elite advisors have discovered that by expanding relationships with their affluent clients, getting more personal with husband and wife, they are able to strengthen these relationships while simultaneously penetrating spheres-of-influence. It's a beautiful process. This type of personal approach is built upon solid business practices. Elite advisors have highly efficient practice management systems, a well-defined wealth management process, and a system for high level personal service. It's hard work, but very rewarding for everyone involved. From our 35 years of coaching and training, we know that elite advisor status is possible for every financial professional, regardless of background, personality type, or natural sales ability. With the right focus and dedication, big results are possible. Your journey begins today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Moran.

This practical guide is for anyone contemplating coaching as a career: coaches in training, coaches already trained and hoping to build a thriving business. This totally revised second edition offers step by step guidance on what to do: 'Jenny Rogers has the rare ability to offer the lessons of decades of experience in ways which are practical to implement and easy to absorb. This book is comprehensive - offering both high level concept and lots of important details on the kinds of things that differentiate the successful coaching professional from the crowd. Perhaps most importantly she offers proven, thorough answers to critical questions that many people would not even think to ask in setting up or developing their business.' Phil Hayes, Chairman, Management Futures, UK 'Another great book from Jenny Rogers. I remember using the first edition of her book very early on in my career and remain hugely grateful for the informed insights and sensible suggestions. As always with Jenny's books, a new edition does not simply mean a few typos corrected and a couple of new references. In addition to the really helpful sections I remember from the first edition (e.g. on how to manage networking and selling whilst remaining authentic), Jenny has drawn on her experience and the courage to address some of the other really difficult issues that concern new coaches. How much should I charge? How will I find my clients? What training should I do? Even Where should I coach and What should I wear? I train new coaches every year and these are the questions they ask. I will certainly be recommending Jenny's book - and drawing on it myself to help the coaches on my courses have the best possible start to their careers.' Jane Cook, Managing Director, Linden Learning, UK 'In a marketplace crowded with quick fixes and unrealistic promises, this book is a breath of fresh air! Drawing on the author's extensive experience, this book lays out a sober, practical approach, while also offering encouragement and inspiration. In her warm, compelling style, Jenny Rogers explores the essential steps towards building a sustainable coaching business-from improving your own coaching skills, to developing your brand, to marketing your services with integrity.' Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC, Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace, Fielding Graduate University, USA 'This book is a must read for anyone who wants to earn a living through coaching. Jenny combines natural enthusiasm and positivity with a good dose of realism by applying a pragmatic and sometimes humorous lens to the business of coaching. No matter how experienced you are in running a coaching business, there is something in this book for everyone - from pragmatic hints and tips at start up stage through to some insightful checks and balances to ensure a consistently high service from established businesses. Jenny demonstrates a real depth of understanding about the questions that will/should be at the forefront of the minds of many new coaches about to set up in business. She has generated in depth answers, pragmatic lists of best practice and sound advice. Her sound advice will help pave the way to your success as a coach.' Susan Binnersley, MD h2h resources limited, UK 'I must admit when I picked up this book I wondered how Jenny could improve on her original book Developing a Coaching Business, however Building a Coaching Business is the essential guide for starting, growing and sustaining a business. Tailored to coaching, it provides a step-by-step guide full of tested methods, insight, ideas and practical information, and written in Jenny's engaging style. Her facilitative approach to selling is a gift. Having come from the public sector selling was one of my biggest challenges but when I use the facilitative model I feel confident and professional. This is a book that challenges and inspires, and you will find yourself recommending it to other people, who may not even be coaches.' Margaret Kelly, Executive Coach, Margaret Kelly Consulting, UK & Ireland Knowing all this can shorten the route to success, at the same making the expectations more realistic. 'I strongly recommend this book. Jenny Roger addresses what one needs to know and be aware of for building and developing
