The #1 way to start getting referrals? STOP ASKING In all his years of helping financial professionals build and grow their businesses, Stephen Wershing has learned that the number one way to make sure you don't get a referral is by asking for it. Why? Because studies prove that clients refer you not to benefit you but to benefit themselves. So you have to approach the challenge from a completely new angle. Stop Asking for Referrals helps you do exactly that. Inside, Wershing provides the tools you need to get more referrals than ever by designing your practice in a way that gets clients to mention you to friends when the opportunity arises. He calls it "the new referral conversation," and it works. Define your target market with accuracy and precision Communicate your value clearly and effectively Create your company's unique "brand" Harness the natural, normal social interactions of your clients to serve your marketing efforts You'll also learn how to use client feedback to benefit your business, create your service package, and bring in new business. "The way you have been told to attract referrals is based on an assumption that's wrong," Wershing writes. "And it is undermining your business and your relationships." You will come away with a deep understanding of why and where referrals actually come from, how to tailor your own practice to get people talking about you, and ways to develop a communication plan to project your reputation. So stop asking for referrals--and start attracting more new clients than you ever thought possible.

Leverage the financial services evolution to maximize your firm's value The Essential Advisor presents an insightful handbook for advisors looking to navigate the changing face of financial services. The industry is evolving, consumers are evolving, and many advisors are being left behind as old methods become less and less relevant. This book shows you how to turn this shift into a positive, by positioning your firm to maximize these new opportunities, and deliver the results and experience increasingly expected of financial advisors. You'll learn how to provide the transparency, hands-on interaction, and around-the-clock access today's clients demand, and how to consistently deliver service that robo-advisors cannot duplicate.

Advisors are increasingly confused about what clients are seeking, and clients are equally confused about what advisory firms offer that alternatives cannot. This book helps clear the air on both sides by examining the client's perspective of financial services, and helping advisors better communicate their strengths. Articulate the value of your services Leverage new technology to complement your practice Capitalize on opportunities and maximize your firm's value Position your firm to benefit from the changing consumer population Financial advisors can only grow their businesses if clients know what they do, know how to hire them, and can access them affordably. The Essential Advisor shows you to bring your firm into the future successfully.

Canada’s most engaging banker shares his strategies for operating in a radically different way in our ever-changing business world. Nothing is average or normal at Tangerine (formerly ING Direct)—not the name, not the style of banking, not the leadership. And Peter Aceto is not your average executive. The president and CEO of Tangerine runs his business in an unorthodox and intuitively human way. The bank has no tellers, no lineups, no bricks-and-mortar branches for its customers to visit. But people are at the core of the operation: loyal, happy and engaged employees who help thousands of customers save their money, buy homes and enjoy a healthy financial life. Weology provides an in-depth look into the “people-first” leadership strategies that have made Tangerine Canada’s leading direct bank, with more than 1.9 million clients and close to $40 billion in total assets. As the company’s guiding hand for more than six years, Aceto thrives in his role by relying strongly on transparency, trust and accessibility. He doesn’t have a luxurious corner office (instead, he sits among the other employees), and he often responds to calls and emails from customers directly. Aceto’s relentless focus is on driving a type of radical thinking that delivers superior and unparalleled results for Tangerine and the financial well-being of Canadians, and that demonstrates largely how business will be led in the future. In Weology, Aceto shares many stories that show how his philosophy and strategies have made him and his business so successful.

The follow-up to the international bestsellers Don’t Gobble the Marshmallow…Ever! and Don’t Eat the Marshmallow…Yet! After facing many hardships and challenges, former chauffeur Arthur has come out on top, happily married and at the pinnacle of his career. But Arthur has always had a dream of starting his own business. In the face of a difficult economy and his own fears of success, Arthur begins to flounder in his new endeavor and forgets all of the principles his former boss, billionaire Jonathan Patient, taught him. Instead of delaying gratification, Arthur begins to eat his marshmallows again. Based on the landmark Stanford University study, the marshmallow theory details the results of an experiment where children were left alone with a marshmallow and told that if they didn’t eat it they would receive an additional marshmallow in fifteen minutes. Years later, researchers discovered that the children who had chosen to wait grew up to become more successful adults than the children who had eaten their marshmallows immediately. In Don’t Eat the Marshmallow…Yet! and Don’t Gobble the Marshmallow…Ever!, Joachim de Posada revealed to readers that the secret to success is not merely superior intelligence or hard work, but rather the ability to delay gratification. Now, in Keep Your Eye on the Marshmallow, Posada uses the parable of Arthur’s struggles after reaching the top to teach us that adhering to the marshmallow principle is especially important in uncertain economic times. True success is more than just financial gain or recognition; it’s the ability to balance every aspect of life outside of work—including hobbies, family, and love—in order to enjoy your success, maintain long-term goals, and savor the marshmallows of life.
