Legacy planning is much more than transferring money from one generation to the next.
 
It’s also about transferring values. If you simply “give” the money to your children, they might lack the wisdom, grit, and satisfaction of accomplishment that only struggle and adversity can bring.

We all know how the dynamics of supply and demand work. The scarcer something is, the higher the value people place in acquiring it. The question is how you can put this immutable law to work in your business. I would ask you to start with your lexicon, because the words you use continually, matter.

Duncan’s favorite book of from the late P. J. O’Rourke (a legend in his mind) was called “Eat the Rich”. He loves that book for many reasons, but primarily because of P.J.’s open and forthright explanation around his evolution from being a liberal to a conservative and not so much from a political perspective, at least that’s not what really got him, it was P.J.’s economic mindset because he really started to understand and support the concepts of merit and productivity.

What’s your record time for converting a client into a referral generating advocate?

You are at a high level of referability early in a relationship because their appreciation for your value is so fresh.

I don’t know about you, but this time of year, I spent a fair amount of time contemplating what I’m grateful for. My terrific wife and fantastic kids instantly come to mind, of course, but when it comes to my own personal and professional development, the best thing to ever happen to me was that success was hard.

This is video four of the Seventh Pillar series, titled: Becoming a Life Coach. There is a cumulative effect that comes from adopting a panoramic goals-based planning approach and developing a Value Added Support Team or V.A.S.T. Referral Network.

In addition to amplifying your fee worthiness you also become indispensable to a client because your trusted advisor status gets even stronger.

The world has become noisier, surreal, and in some cases downright bizarre. While I’m very optimistic about the light at the end of the tunnel, in the meantime, I’d like you to consider just re-imagining your relevance to a client’s life.
