Virtual Academy Takeaways

What can you expect to take away from the Virtual Academy? The short answer is: access to ideas and concepts that will substantially increase your client deliverables and practice income, techniques that are proven to open and close, and strategies that will have you working less and earning more.

That doesn’t tell the whole story, though. Here are some concrete examples of what you can expect to learn at our Virtual Academy!

  1. How to talk about reducing taxes in order to attract new clients.

  2. Hardwired tax reduction plans prepared by experts.

  3. Three ways to take over existing retirement plans that produce assets under management and insurance sales.

  4. Plans to stay away from.

  5. Whether term or permanent life insurance is a better option.

  6. A retirement plan that provides more retirement income than a defined benefit plan—and it’s tax-free.

  7. SCI education and presentations.

  8. Expert resources to help educate you on sophisticated strategies you can use to orchestrate engagements and close business.

  9. A lead system that tells you who has retirement plans, also how much is in them, what the current yield is, how much they’re paying in fees, whether or not the yield and fees are in line with their industry and geographic area.

  1. Exit strategies from qualified plans that reduce income and estate taxes.

  2. A Defined Benefit Plan that creates guaranteed income.

  3. Five ways to convert IRAs, Profit Sharing 401(k), and Defined Benefit Plans to Roth IRAs.

  4. How to get doctor, dentist, and CPA clients.

  5. Strategic partnerships with CPA firms and Property and Casualty Agencies.

  6. A retirement plan that provides health benefits that are tax-deductible and tax-free.

  7. Digital content marketing done for you, already pre-populated with the relevant information.

  8. Marketing with customized short video vignettes.

  9. A computer system that tells you which assets to access in what amount and at what time in order to maximize your income, your legacy for your children, and/or your charitable contributions.
