In today’s conversation, I get to sit down with James Clear. James's career arc has had a few twists and turns along the way as he got his start as a travel photographer and has worked in over 30 countries. Today he focuses much of his time on writing and speaking having launched one of the most followed blogs on the internet at jamesclear.com - he also shares much of this wisdom out on Twitter and as of this recording has 110,000+ followers. In this conversation, we cover a number of topics, including diving into his just released book, Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones, which covers mindset and the concepts behind the mental models that help to predict human behavior.
James’s work is very relevant for financial advisors - especially when it comes to talking about complex concepts, the many different emotions that influence decision making, and how to build trust with prospective clients in a world where we all struggle with information overload. I especially love James's philosophy of, "believing that you do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.” When I survey the landscape of the top performing advisors we work with who’ve made the leap from salesperson to CEO, I don’t know if there’s a statement that could ring more true than that one, as they all rely on systems… So, if you’re looking to grow your business or simply transform your daily routine for the better - today’s episode is a must-listen.

I’m thrilled to speak with Hilary Hendershott, founder of Hilary Hendershott Wealth Management. She’s also the host of the Profit Boss Podcast, which has become her primary source for acquiring new clients. In fact, it’s worked so well, that she’s generated over $37M of new assets in the last 10 months!
She receives an average of 1 lead via her website per day, and is currently seeing 1 high net-worth lead - which she defines as $500,000 or more of investable assets - come in every 6-7 days, almost all of which reach out to her via her website after listening in to her weekly podcast.
So, if you want to know how podcasting can create authority, help develop trust, and connect you with people who would NEVER show up to a seminar - this episode is a must-listen.

Today's guest is New York Times bestselling author Greg McKeown. He’s the author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. This book quickly became one of my top reads of all-time as it truly spoke to me with something I've struggled with and I'm sure many of you have as well, balancing everything we want to do in business with the things that truly matter in life. I highlighted passage after passage, then I realized something… As financial advisors, if there’s one thing we need, it’s a book on what NOT to do and a framework to focus on the things that truly matter - and Greg has written just that book.
Greg has also spoken on NBC, NPR, and at countless companies across a variety of industries including Apple, Google, NFP Securities, and Goldman Sachs. He definitely knows a thing or two about helping financial advisors, as well as high net worth individuals - and his advice extends to almost anyone who has ever caught themselves struggling to make time for both their work and their personal life.
Today, we discuss why we trade off incredibly important things for less important ones. We explore why our world prioritizes working constantly and our obsession with the idea that you need to always be ON in order to be successful - and how you can have a fuller, happier life by focusing on what truly matters.

Greg Salciccioli is the CEO of CoachWell - an executive coaching service that specializes in Professional, Team, and Organizational development. Greg is also the author of The Enemies of Excellence, which explores why high achievers so frequently struggle with broken relationships, self-indulgence, disorientation, disarray, and a lack of professionalism.
During our conversation, Greg and I dive deep into the biggest problems he’s seen in his 18+ years of coaching financial advisors and what to do about them. If you’re looking to reach high net worth individuals, provide better service to your clients, and do right by your coworkers, your family, and yourself, this is a must-listen.
In today’s conversation, I’m speaking with The Retirement Answer Man himself, Roger Whitney. Besides being a CFP and having just about every other designation a financial advisor can have after his name, Roger is one of the few financial advisors in the US who has cracked the podcasting code and is actually using his weekly show to drive substantial assets to his firm from all over the country. Not only is Roger landing clients nationwide, but he recently even signed a US citizen living in Burma, so I guess he’s officially gone international! This conversation is a must-listen episode if you are looking to expand your marketing to what I find for most advisors is an unknown digital frontier… podcasting.
I also bought a big stack of Roger’s books and I’m giving them away for FREE - Listen to this episode to find out how you can get a copy delivered directly to your doorstep!
