HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR BUSINESS

...and get back to enjoying being an adviser

As an adviser, accountant, broker, financial coach, investment specialist or financial expert you're probably great at helping clients see the big picture...

...but what about you?

WHAT'S YOUR NEXT LEVEL?

What's that "If I can just get there..." place for you?

Maybe it's the place that where you'd feel able to to focus on doing what you do best.

For the clients I've worked with over the past two decades, it often comes down to 3 things:

HELPING CLIENTS

BUILD BETTER LIVES

FEEL SUCCESSFUL

We don't really need to list all the reasons the business of advice has become harder.

You already know it. You're living it.

It wasn't long ago you could rely on your your Licensee for support to get your business runninghumming and growing. Now where once there were PDMs, resources are spent on compliance and monitoring.

There was a time when a website was enough to announce your digital presence. Now you need an integrated online marketing and social media strategy just to stay in the game.

There was a time when software was something that would help. Now it's a minefield of choices, training and huge costs, with the landscape seemingly changing from minute to minute.

There was a time when advice was easier, but...

Times have changed.

Maybe like many you're aching for more space, time, resources and support to solve the business issues holding you back from getting the business right where you want it. If you're here perhaps you're looking for ways to make it simpler, to get back to doing what you enjoy most.

The reality for most has been challenging times.  

I did say this wasn't going to be about all reasons advice has got harder, so here's some good news.

The demand for advice isn't reducing, it's growing.  

These next years provide a golden opportunity for those wanting to herald in a golden new age of advisory services.

A wave is building, and the wave is change.

IT'S A WAVE OF OPPORTUNITY

If you can get ahead of that wave, you're positioned to ride a once-in-a-lifetime competitive advantage.
SOW NOW, AND OWN THE FUTURE.

------ 

It's happening right now, s0 the key question is...

HOW CAN YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU?

aka, how this all started

My name is Stewart

I've spent the last two decades asking that question on behalf of my clients and finding answers.

Since 2002, I've been working with advice firms, in the field we call practice management.

Since 2010, I've been working as an independent coach, operating outside the "sinner circle".

Since 2014, I made it my sole purpose to unpack the science of building an advisory business model that scales.

I have devoted the last seven years as an independent consultant looking beyond just our industry, into the secrets of technology businesses and exploring places 99% of coaches never think to look.

I have tried and tested just about every method out there through practical application, coaching hundreds of firms and working with numerous institutions. 

I've tested this on every conceivable type of advisory firm large and small, new and mature, specialist and generalist. Advisers and planners, financial coaches, investment specialists and brokers, themselves working with clients all the way from ultra high net worth to Mums and Dads.

..and I have cracked challenges most firms struggle with applying solution most know nothing about.

I know what works, and I know what doesn’t.  

It's been a hell of a journey, yet it's a journey that is only beginning, both for me and for you.

Thankfully along the way, I kept every learning, every practical insight, every template, tool, or framework than got results.

The output of working with all those firms; studying, applying and tweaking the science of scaling advice businesses full time.

Two decades doing it exclusively with advice professionals, all the time amassing insight into the intersections between the business of advice and client experience and how to use tech (and more) to achieve scale better than most anyway.

Then, it came to me what I'd done. What I'd built that no-one else seemed to have.

The only complete business system for next generation advice firms.

A complete turnkey solution for rapidly transforming financial services firm.

IMPLEMENTATION

I've created it for and with advisers who told me they wanted a brighter, bolder future. 

I designed it for those who told me they wanted less admin, and more of the role they love.

I packaged it up for advisers who told me they didn't want to build it all from scratch. 

Those who wanted to get into it make progress fast and transform the way they advised.

The end result is a something that is pretty much unmatched in breadth and depth. No other program covers as much. No other program provides as much.

Do YOU need it?

It's entirely possible you could achieve it all without my help, but the value of choosing not to is simple.

 

    ✔ You'll shortcut the process of research and implementation.

    ✔ You won't have to go down dead ends I already have...

    ✔You can get ahead of the wave of change whilst you still

    ✔ You won't waste time at the very disruption point where time is the most valuable of resources.

    ✔ You'll fast track having a business that gives you, your clients and your staff the capability to do great work..

Why choose a harder route if there's no benefit?

Still, here are some of the reasons I sometimes hear (that never make sense to me).

How many times have you been on the receiving end of this from prospects and groaned? Later often never comes. 

Theres one secret I've learnt for getting results, and it's so simple it's amazing. It's the reason why some are able to fast track success and others stay stuck.

Ask someone who has done it first, implement second. It's a game changer.

Assuming you want the outcome, eventually you'll decide to research, build and test it yourself scratch and solve problems others have already found solutions to.

Or put it off until you no longer can.

The truth is time is made, not found, and finding time for building a great business is often out Step 1.

Conversely, if you don't have time for finding shortcuts, what exactly is the solution?

I've worked with Licensee teams and in all honesty, most rarely have the time of single focus to provide the breadth o support I do (which is why I work WITH them so well). 

This is me FULL TIME. Every week I'm finding new ways to build advice firms. Whatever time you've spend working on your business, I'll 10x it.

It's not about experience, but time and absolute focus.

..and scientists are rarely what they study.  chose not to be an adviser (despite being qualified). This is what I love (and excel at). 

I've worked with 100s of businesses across 100s of business models, and that's experience that can only be had doing what I do.

To every experienced adviser who feels that only advisers can do what I do,  ask yourself, "Would you rather 20 years experience, or 1 year times 20?"

Bill Gates has a saying.

"If you add people to an already inefficient process, it makes it worse"

Let's assume Bill knows his stuff. To add people at scale, you need a clear vision, proposition, systems, profit model, tech and all the stuff that NEEDS to be in place first.

Craft the vision and platform for success, then add superstars who'll build the rest.

...but what if it does?

What if all it need is a fresh injection of ideasnew ways to solve old problems and the rest is a story worth telling.

It's hard to see the solution when you're inside the problem. 

You're here, so I assume you've decided you want change.

I have fuel, you bring fire

CURRICULUM

How about I share with you a little of what's inside?

If we're on the same page - that there is value in shortcutting your journey - then the question is...

Does it have what YOU need?

I could share with you the program catalog, but it'd be like drinking from a fire hydrant. If you like drinking that way, it's all here, but it might not make this an easier decision. Sometimes you need clarity to progress.

I don't think you need to know the names of the courses.

You need to know the problems the program solves.

...and that's just for starters.
Inside each module lives the fuel to progress five times faster than if you started from scratch

✔  Video training

✔  Ready made templates

✔  Examples & use cases

✔  Supplementary resources

✔  Great ideas (proven)

✔  Practical frameworks

✔  Step-by-step methodology

✔  Continually refreshed content

✔  Action plans

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

You could...

 

...choose to work with a "traditional" consultant totally one-on-one

...but it would take years of work together to cover this much content and possibly tens of thousands of dollars. You'd spend hours in meetings listening to them explaining the concepts*, instead of diving into the WHY, WHAT & HOW so you can focus down on how to make it work for you, and miss out on having access to a high calibre peer group as well.
* I know this isn't the best way because I used to work like this. You don't need me, you need the practical know how and someone to show you how to make this work for you.


...employ a Practice Manager on a 6-figure salary to build from scratch

...but although are some great Practice Managers out there, no doubt, you're betting on a) this person is bringing the know-how with them, and b) this person has the experience you need, and c) this person's efforts will generate a return that is at least three times the investment in their salary. 


...spend hours of your time (at $300 per hour) to do it yourself.

...all the time missing out on the opportunity to bring on the right new clients at the right fee levels today. 


...invest well over $100k of your own money (as I have)..

...learning from some of the best in and outside our industry.


...devote the next 7 years (full time) testing, refining & optimising (as I also have)

..testing, refining and optimising everything in my business and my clients. 

 

Or you can short cut the whole process, saving time, money and opportunity cost by leveraging what's already been done.

I'm not talking about projects that take months to implement.

I'm talking things that will work this week, next week and the week after.

THE COST

Below you'll find what your skin in the game for this. First, I want to address cost.

To me these two things are very different and it's a concept I'd love to help you master with your clients too.

The programs on offer are not cheap, by design and for good reason.

The reason is that I want you to apply this knowing it has value. That you've paid for it and you NEED to put it to work to make it pay.

How many times have you hoarded free downloads or PD Day notes that you took and done nothing with it? The simple reason comes courtesy of 18th century economist Adam Smith. It's called the Paradox of Value.

"That obtained with little toil or struggle has no value"

If you'd like prospects and clients to value what YOU do, you're going to learn how true this is.

This is not about information or templates or tools or yet more nice ideas.

THIS MUST BE ABOUT RESULTS.

The price point has to be enough so you are motivated to not waste what you've committed to.

If you put this to work and got your focus right, what would you need to achieve to fund it?

How many extra new clients would it require?
One? Two? Three? 

What's 2 free days in your week worth over a year at $300 an hour?
$200k? $300k? More?

What could you achieve with that extra time? 
See more new clients?
Finally get on the front foot with your marketing?
Set up new partnerships to create new quality leadflow?
Work more deeply with existing clients?
Find and train your replacement? 

If you could spend two extra weeks a year with your family and still grow..
What's would you pay someone for that? 

 

Just like your advice, this shouldn't be about price.

It's about what it takes to make things different. It's about the personal and financial cost of not addressing the issues that have brought you here.

I'm not trying to hard sell you.

This is what coaching is all about. It's about helping people who have intention to change this to take the action required to make it happen, and it's a conversation you should master about so you can move your clients to take action too...

DOING NOTHING IS NOT A PLAN

&

WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME IS THE PATH OF MOST RESISTANCE.

From the moment you enter the program, you're going to realise the breadth of the opportunities you've never thought to look at.

    ✔ Tech tools to make it easier

    ✔ Tools to communicate your value

    ✔ Systems that make it faster

FAQ

We've taken around 70 modules from the full program curriculum of 100, focusing on the ones we think are most relevant.

Online Unlimited gives you access to all 70, as they appear on the full Leveraged catalog. Basically, use what you want when you want it, plus the new 1-2 we add each month.

With Sprint, we're still drawing from the same 70, but we've "bundled" them down into around 34 bundles which make them perfectly aligned to a 90 Day implementation cycle.

​The course content is designed for financial advice businesses, progressive accounting firms, and future focused mortgage brokers who are interested in finding ways to generate leads more effectively (particularly using online methodology), convert them more easily, onboard clients, overhaul pricing and service offers, improve their client experience, work better with insourced and outsourced teams, systematise and use technology better, and get more personally productive.

 

Essentially, if you're looking for ground-breaking tools to help you reinvent your advice model and overhaul your existing business, it's designed for you.

​The online program contains the very same tools, templates, and training as offered on the main course.

The only real difference is within the main course, members get access to personal coaching, as well as full community access including our live events.

Essentially, we've taken the content part of Leveraged and made it available to a wide audience.

​Like anything, the amount of time you put in will dictate how quickly you can implement. 

When working with people on the full program, we usually recommend two to four hours a week is a good investment of time, whereas six to eight hours will see you fast track your progress.

However, if you feel like time might be an issue in your business, this is not something we haven't come across before. We have a number of modules in there, often which we start work with businesses on, designed to help them free up the five to 10 hours a week they might need to try to make change.

Leveraged Online gives you full access to all modules within the program. So in essence, at any point in time, you can work on multiple modules, and combine concurrent themes in order to make faster progress.

 Sprint however is designed for businesses who prefer to take it one module at a time, so you get to choose the number of modules that you work on in every 90-day period.

Membership is for a 12-month period.

Let's be clear. The upfront payment provides you with the membership and the monthly payment is an instalment on that, not a month to month fee.

There's two reasons for that. First thing, we want people to go in there and work through the content at the right pace, not try and consume it all in one go. It simply doesn’t work.

 Secondly, we’ve found through years of experience that coaching works best when people make a commitment. We want you to undertake this as a project to transform your business and we know that when courses are offered within open-ended date, such as with Udemy or other courses, the likelihood of people not undertaking the action increases. 

If you like to read more about this, check out Parkinson's Law on Google to see the impact of not having an end date on the amount of effort put in.

Essentially, we make it available for a period because it's a coaching course and we want you to get results, not just collect information.

If you’re not sure about making a commitment, then that’s why we also offer Sprint.

As mentioned, we see this as a coaching course taking a lot of the lessons we've learned through our full Leveraged Advice Firm Programme, and offering it in a different format. 

Due to Parkinson's Law and a bunch of psychological factors, courses which are offered with an open-ended date, tend to be collected and there's no urgency to work on them. 

We want there to be urgency, and we want you to apply this to get a result and therefore we set a duration for program membership.

That's not to say that you won't have availability of some of the content afterwards as many of the tools and templates you can download for future reference.

The curriculum is based on the same three-pillar nine-strategy scope as the main program.

 That is we work with businesses on how they attract clients from getting leads, improving their conversion rates, and then mastering the onboarding of clients. It also works on strategies to improve your service offer across scaling the offer, improving pricing and profitability and client experience, and the final area is around resourcing the business up to support it, including getting your team to work more effectively together, embracing outsourcing, systematising using technology well, and personal productivity. In addition, the pr

Pogramme also covers project methodology so that not only do you have the content, but you have a clear framework and structure, the same one we use in a full programme for getting results.

The number of modules you consume at any one time will depend on a few factors including how much time you commit, the resources available in your business, how motivated you are to getting things done, and how good you are at implementing.

 For most businesses, they should aim to work on between three to five modules, although often different people in the business may focus on different things.

 However, a general rule of thumb the bigger the change you're trying to embed, the fewer the modules you might want to work on.

 Nonetheless, why Online is often a better solution is you might start working on one thing, but realise halfway through, there are elements of another aspects you might need to draw upon, and having access to online means you can dip into this additional content as when you need it.

Absolutely not, and in fact one of the main motivators for Leveraged Online was to be able to offer much of what we've done in our main course to a wider audience including advisers from the US, the UK, South Africa, Canada, and a number of other areas where advice is growing. 

Essentially, the core elements of the programme from lead generation to client engagement, servicing, and a host more, are very much portable across the other industries, although some of the terminology and regulatory aspects may mean you need to tweak certain elements to suit your business.

 Regardless of whether we're talking about country to country, state to state, or business to business, variations occur even when businesses working in the same town.

Yes it is - please keep your receipt from Stripe as proof of payment. The total fee you paid include 10% GST.

You will have the opportunity to upgrade to the full course if you'd like to, and in doing so will only pay the difference between the full course price and the price you've already paid. 

If you choose to pay by instalments, your new instalment payment will simply increase at the next month and your membership period if greater than six months will not reset.
