New Chapters In Life, Why I’m Starting Over And How We’re Going To Disrupt Our Industry

So recently I’ve been exploring a new philosophy on life called essentialism, thanks to a book I recently read called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.

What really intrigued me about the book was that it walks you through how to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. 12108770_10153629892148375_7960767888450849694_n

So I started to do some personal inspection in my life to try and figure out what brought me the most happiness and fulfillment in my life both in my business and personal.

And what occurred to me was that family was and has always been a big part of my life, and since I have a new niece that was just born and another one along the way, I wanted see them.

I also made a promise to my sweetheart that I would show her the world and so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I booked two one-way tickets to Bali, Indonesia this summer…

And I literally sold everything in my downtown ATL apartment, packed our remaining possessions, said our goodbyes to our amazing friends and hit the road towards Phoenix, AZ 1,900 miles away.

Our first stop was in New Orleans where we enjoyed eating

Jambalaya and gumbo while listening to some killer jazz music!

Our next stop was in Austin, Texas eating awesome burgers at JackRabbits.

As I was making the 20+ hour drive, thoughts began to race in my head:

“Am I fricken crazy?”

“Why did I leave all my friends and home behind?”

“What about all my stuff?”

At that exact moment, I was also listening to the audiobook  “When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead” by Jerry Weintraub who was an incredibly successful film producer for Oceans 11, 12 & 13 the Karate Kid films and a promoter for Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Frank Sinatra, John Denver and many others.

And this quote literally hit me between the eyes…

“As soon as you feel comfortable, that’s when it’s time to start over.” Jerry Weintraub

So that’s exactly what I’m doing…starting all over.

It’s time for a new chapter and a new start in my life…and to focus on that which matters most to me: relationships, health and fitness (back to my lean and healthy self by July), traveling and focusing my efforts for maximum contribution in our financial services industry.

Before I left Atlanta, I was with a group of friends where I asked everyone in the room to share in one single word, their number #1 and intention for 2016…

They came up with some incredibly insightful responses:

DOMINATION…

CONNECTION…

TRANSFORMATION…

Thanks to recent interview with Nic West of, Ninja Quoter, I can sum up my focus and intention for 2016 in one word…

“DISRUPTION”

Why disruption?

Industries all around us are being disrupted…

Airbnb is disrupting the hotel industry…
Uber is disrupting the private transportation industry…
NetFlix and Amazon prime are disrupting the film distribution industry…
Amazon is disrupting the brick-and-mortar retail and department store industry…

 

Here at Advisor Internet Marketing, we will be leading the charge to disrupt our industry…

And what does this mean?

Well it means that we will be shouting from the rooftops that the “old-school” business-as-usual methods and ideas no longer are necessary to build a thriving practice.

We will be sharing stories of successful advisors that don’t have the fancy offices to meet clients or run around like a madman (or madwoman ;)) hosting live events to drum up new business.

We’ll walk you through proven ways for you to build a business that spans borders that you previously thought were impossible…so you can serve more clients that were previously out of reach.

Folks, this is where the future is headed, it’s a much more efficient model and in my opinion much more rewarding, and we will be leading the charge.

Will you join us?

Will you join the ranks of forward-thinking advisors who are seizing the “digital land grab” and embracing the new found freedoms afforded by the Internet Age, or will you be left behind?

Pardon me for being dramatic, but I truly want you to succeed. The Internet and recent technology has “lowered the bar” to entry for any advisor to be successful online.

So that leads me to a handful of updates that we’re focusing on to lead the charge on disrupting our industry and empowering independent advisors to generate leads and create authority online…

Update #1- Private Consulting: We’re also embracing the philosophy of Essentialism, we’ve made the decision to only work with private clients that have a list size of at least 5,000 subscribers…which by the way if that’s you, click here to apply to work with us.

Update #2 – Premium On-Going Training: If you don’t have a list of 5,000 subscribers yet, no problem. We have an on-going monthly membership program to help you get there, it’s called the Authority Advisor Network. Enrollment is currently closed, but we’ll keep you posted when we reopen. We also have a tried and tested “annuity conversion funnel” that can help you start generating leads fast…read below.

Update #3 – Done-For-You Funnels: Advisors have been raving about our latest “done-for-you” funnel called Advisor Funnel Blueprint which we intend to reopen to the public once again, and we’ll let you know when it’s available for you to access.

Update #4 – Podcasts: So far the feedback from advisors has been incredibly positive regarding our  If you have a suggestion for someone that you would like us to interview, just comment below this blog post and tell us who you that person is, and why they should be featured on our podcast.

Update #5 – Live Event: Based on the feedback from our last live event in Scottsdale, AZ with 20 advisors, we’re exploring the possibility of hosting a “mega-event” to connect advisors with ideas and “expert implementers” together for our industry’s very first marketing summit for advisors, with a focus on the Internet and technology. If this type of a live in-person event piques your interest, then leave us a comment below.

We look forward to hearing your success story…Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey.

Cheers,  Jovan Will

    Congrats on the move to the unknown! We all have to do that in our own way. As my firm is scaling… (On track for $18,555 this month…) I too have been putting some time behind what makes me, me. One of the take away’s that I have come up with is that driving what we build in this city is very important to my block of business and a unique attribute that can be a market maker.

    Just as product mix has been so important and a differentiator. I am the only Life, Wealth and Realty professional in Ontario. It has taken me five years to find all the pieces and put them together into a package that is killer for my clients. Now that the product mix is done the next message is: My firm.

    The first weekend in April launches the combined product mix and there will be no looking back from there.

    IF I can put together more $20K months this year I will reach my scale faster than what my business plan… planned.
