I Believe Trusted Advisors Are Critical to Their Clients’ Success

Left to their own devices, the average consumer will do exactly the wrong thing financially. They’ll bail out of the markets only to cement the turbulent charts on paper into real losses. They’ll inadequately insure themselves against risks. They’ll complete their own taxes. They’ll “forget” to finally get their wills done. *sigh*

What you do, matters. But to be in the ring with your clients, you have to succeed, too. 

Joel’s Story

Some years ago, a friend of Joel’s declared him to be a “late bloomer.” He was commenting particularly on the fact that Joel had begun a new career in the financial services industry, after a prior career. Because he was in the financial services industry himself, this friend was commenting on what he perceived to be great “success” in Joel’s new career. He knew how hard it was to launch a successful business of any kind, especially in that industry. He knew Joel had exceeded his firm’s first-year top benchmark (rare), and that Joel had been immediately promoted into a leadership role, as a result.

In the years that followed, Joel has worked with hundreds of advisors and clients, as an advisor, then as a District Manager (Top 1%), followed by service as a Managing Principal.

Before launching Accelerator Launchpad (AL), Joel garnered multiple awards from his company, recognition in his community, as well as multiple International Manager Awards from GAMA International.

After striking out on his own, Joel has earned three coaching certifications to further empower his ability to serve trusted advisors, delivering best-in-class programs & resources.


Joel’s Values

There Is Only One Right Order

When clients win, then their trusted advisors win.

And when advisors win, then their mothership wins, whether that is a multinational fund complex or a small RIA or something in between.

There need to be 3 winners and they need to be in that order. Only this is a virtuous circle.

You Must Delegate, Just Like You Expect Your Clients To

Your clients rely on your expertise.

They already have a life and its complicated enough that they need to access professionals like you to make smart choices that support and accelerate their dreams being fulfilled.

If that’s true for your clients, why wouldn’t it be the same for you?

The Accelerator Launchpad Framework

What you do, matters. It is also difficult, demanding and time-consuming. At least, if you level up as your clients expect you to. And you would not have it any other way.

Still, the chances are you didn’t launch your career as a trusted advisor with an MBA in your back pocket. Frankly, even if you did the odds are not in your favor that your MBA has helped you grow your practice, accelerate your revenues or optimize your team.

In short, there’s only so much one person can do. As long as you believe in the wisdom of your clients’ delegating crucial aspects of their world to a trusted advisor—you—it is also wise for you to delegate crucial aspects of your career growth to trusted experts.

That’s why we created the Launchpad Success Path:
