I mean, really.
Reading blogs, signing up for newsletters, following social media accounts, and so on.
What are you gaining from all of this information?
None of it will help you if you are not willing to act, so why bother?
Am I asking you to spend money to improve your business?
Think about it this way: paying for services from a mentor might MAKE your business more money. Or it may not. There is most definitely risk involved. It really depends on the merits of the mentor offering the advice and plan of action.
However, not buying anything most definitely will COST you money.
The cold hard truth is that you are stuck. Whether you are new to the financial advisor game or a seasoned veteran, you are reading this post because you have struggled or plateaued or worse. And you want more.
More leads. More traffic. More clients. More revenue.
And frankly, if you are not willing to take the leap and part with some cash to take your practice to the next level, you are wasting your time.

While it might feel good (in a “cross-it-off-the-checklist-of-business-imperatives” sort of way) to read someone’s free blog or follow their social media posts, you are missing out.
You need to hire a mentor in the financial advisory space that is willing to provide a workable, scalable, and reproducible game plan to take your business to the next level.
Think about this for a second: what message are you sending by not investing in your growth as a financial advisor?
That you are not worth investing in.
This untruth will not only affect your mindset, but it will infiltrate your company’s morale and makeup. More importantly, that negative vibe will certainly be noticeable to potential clients even if only at a subconscious level.
You might as well unsubscribe from the pundits’ newsletters, blogs, and other offers and unfollow their social media sites.
Information is nice, but it is nothing without action.
Until you stop stalling and invest in yourself, others simply won’t buy what you’re selling. It’s a tried and true staple of business.
During my strategy calls for Castor Abbott, I have encountered two types of people:
The first is only interested in acquiring information. Indecisive and often lazy. Looking for that magic bullet that will solve all their problems with little effort. Short-sighted and unwilling to see that investing in yourself is the greatest investment of all. More concerned with saving a few bucks and getting a “good deal” rather than seeing the worth of the offering. These folks do not believe in Castor Abbott because they don’t even believe in themselves. Not a good fit. And that strategy call usually ends with me directly telling them so. With me making up their mind for them.
The second knows that all good decisions are hard decisions. That to make progress there must be some pain. To improve your life, you must be willing to sacrifice, look honestly at your weaknesses, and take a step (or two or three) back before moving forward. These folks never worry about price because they know the investment will produce dividends beyond the initial cost. Forward-thinking. Decisive. Unsatisfied with the status quo. Ready to act.
So which are you?
If you are in the first camp, you are satisfied with mediocrity. I don’t mean to be harsh, but it’s the truth.
