If you’re serious about becoming an Elite Advisor, this is THE training course you cannot afford to miss. Previously available only as a self-paced training course with 24 videos and exercises, NOW we’re offering the training as a 12-week program featuring LIVE group coaching sessions with Don Connelly as well. Program starts Sep 19, 2023 with 4 additional sessions on 10/5, 10/24, 11/16 and 12/7 (dates may slightly change – each session starting at 4:05 pm ET). All sessions will be recorded and available for replay.
Many advisors enter the industry mistakenly believing that hard skills and product knowledge are all they need to succeed. But let’s face it – we are all taught the same things in training, and as a result, in the eyes of prospective clients we all tend to look the same, sound the same and sell the same products.
Then, how do you make sure prospects choose you over the competition? Here’s a hint: Soft skills.
Remember: Your degree and qualifications are worth nothing without the accompanying soft skills. Your training and knowledge are solid foundations for your career, but your success will come down to two things: whether people like you and trust you. Unless you learn how to forge emotional connections, people will remain unconvinced you can do anything to help them.
So many advisors leave the trade in their first few years because they weren’t able to cut through the noise and attract enough clients. Other Advisors suffer from stagnated growth over the years. Don’t let either of those things happen to you!
Enroll in this training course now. Whether you gain access to the self-paced program today, or take advantage of the next 12-week coaching program (starting September 19!), this course will walk you through the process of developing the verbal competence, attitude and soft skills needed to attract and maintain clients. Developing and honing these powerful skills and techniques will help you to educate, inspire and influence people into making smart decisions.

This training course is available in two formats – as a self-paced program (always open!) or as a 12-week group coaching program (next starting date is September 19, 2023 – limited to 25 Advisors). Here’s a quick comparison of the two:
You can proceed as slowly or quickly as you desire through the lessons, if you have enrolled in the self-paced course. Or if you select the course with the LIVE group coaching sessions, you have the added benefit of accountability and the opportunity to interact with one of the best minds in the business as well as interacting with your peers. This coaching format is open only a couple of times a year and is limited to 25 Advisors at a time so that all participants can get the attention and answers they need during the LIVE group coaching sessions.
Regardless of which training format you choose, self-paced or with group coaching, there is no other video training of its kind available. It will save you a ton of wasted time in trial and error, and ensure you stay in business and achieve great success.
24 lessons. 24 exercises. And even LIVE group coaching. A survivor’s manual. And an enormous head-start on your competition.
If you start the course but it turns out it isn’t a good fit for you after watching a couple of video lessons and doing a couple of exercises, just drop us a note sharing your experience and we’ll refund your payment.
Don Connelly’s career on Wall Street spans nearly 50 years and today he is one of the most successful speakers in the Financial Advisory industry. Don Connelly educates, entertains and motivates audiences; more importantly – he inspires financial Advisors to achieve great accomplishments through mastering the conversational tools and soft skills that allow financial professionals to communicate with their clients in a totally confident, straightforward and understandable way.
Don’s mission for financial professionals is profound, yet simple:
The more successful we become the further we get away from the basics that made us successful in the first place. Learn to do something right and then do it right every single time.
Don is an absolute master at cutting through the constant ‘noise’ that surrounds all of us, always with great humor and clarity, to focus on what is ultimately important for our long term success as advisors – the basics. No matter how much our business appears to change, his message and principles remain timeless.

Thanks so much for what you’ve given me to get back on track — $2.5 million in new assets and possibly another $5 million in the pipeline. Back to the basics-I listen to three podcasts of yours every morning before getting ready for work. Thanks for your wisdom and common sense.

Don, thank you for all your support over the years. You have had a major impact on the way I approach my meetings and presentations. In short…”Game Changer.
Christopher Downey / Wholesaler. Franklin Templeton Investments
In an industry that is constantly trying to reinvent itself its nice to hear someone, indeed a legend like yourself, preaching the virtues of being nice to people, earning their respect and trust, and learning as a student of the game anything and everything to help mom and dad at the kitchen table. I hope we are not the last two screaming this from the mountain top!
Hope to see you again on the road. We are lucky to have you representing all of us in financial services.
