  • Luvuyo Yelani /

    Wow you just boosted my confidence towards my clients cause sometimes it kills ones confidence when your clients gives you all the reasons not to go with what you’re proposing to them

    • Hi Luvuyo,

      Thanks for your comment. I’m glad that you found the post motivating. I totally agree with you! Failure to overcome client objections can be really demotivating. As people are afraid of making mistakes, objections in business are inevitable. Often clients are unable to visualize the value being offered. The best way out is to practice how to anticipate, overcome and avoid objections because the sooner we learn to deal with them, the faster we will open the account.

      Here’s a post by Don Connelly that you might want to read. It’s about 3 objections a Financial Advisor will ever get and how to overcome them: https://donconnelly.com/three-objections-overcoming-objections/ – a webinar replay on the topic available, too.

      Hope you’ll find it helpful and we would love to hear from you again. 🙂
