Powerful, practical lessons from our encounter with crime …

Life Goes on Roadmap No Comments

About a six weeks ago, I wrote to tell you about our home burglary.

Three burglars broke windows and locks and “went shopping” for valuables in our home — including an entire jewelry drawer full of treasures — before driving away with both of our cars.

One of the thugs is in jail, and the two others are still at large.

One car was recovered and now repaired. The other was found abandoned and trashed in a bad part of town after the insurance company had already paid the claim for its loss.

We are over the worst of it now, and that’s a good thing.

In the moment, while I was feeling the violation and despair of that incident, I kept telling myself that there would be a blessing that would come out if it.

That was a coping mechanism to fight back my tears. It’s just awful to step into a crime scene in your own home and find the strength and resilience to deal with a situation like this.

Mindset matters so much when dealing with the crazy, random things that life serves up.

That’s why today I want to share some lessons from our brush with crime so they can inspire you to take some action.

  • We are so glad we completed the Valuables Inventory for jewelry when we completed our Life Goes on Roadmap™ system for personal financial organization. We did that about a year ago.
  • Getting organized in this way was what I wanted for Christmas last year.
  • We had jewelry appraisals and receipts for most items. We even had photos of me wearing many of the pieces. For those items for which appraisals and receipts were missing, we visited the stores from which we made the purchases.The owners were happy to write letters to vouch for prior purchases we made and offer a suggested replacement value.
  • When it came time to making a claim with our insurance company, we had proof of what we owned. Had we not, we could have suffered a second loss with the insurance company potentially electing to disallow our claim.
  • An insurance settlement doesn’t make the violation of the burglary go away, but it sure helps.
  • Don’t store your car keys and jewelry in obvious places.
  • Don’t post to Facebook about your fun adventures while out of town until you have returned home.
  • Take care when using a car service to the airport. Ask family members to take you if that’s possible. Who knows if the car service driver has thieves for friends?
  • Purchase and install a home security system and put dowels in all of your windows. Signs on the windows about the security system and in the front yard alert future burglars to keep their distance.

Questions and Suggested Actions for You:

• Is your wedding and engagement ring insured in addition to that beautiful wrist watch you wear every day?
• How about your other valuables?
• If not, decide today to have these items appraised, and add a jewelry rider to your home owner policy.
• When you add new jewelry items to your collection or receive them as gifts, take pictures and save receipts so you have a record that will come in handy if ever you suffer a burglary or your items get lost or damaged in some other way.

A valuables inventory is just one of 16 ‘road stops’ we ask you to make when you complete your Life Goes on Roadmap™ system for personal financial information management with our unwavering support.

You’re invited to purchase Life Goes on Roadmap™ for yourself and your friends and extended family.

This is a very practical gift for the people in your life who have everything so they can drive life forward, no matter what happens next. For those who want to get organized in the New Year, it’s a perfect gift.

We’ll hold your collective feet to the fire to get this done and even make it fun.

A New Real Estate Closing Gift Debuts to Delight New Homeowners While Showing Care After the Sale

Life Goes on Roadmap, Personal Branding, Real Estate Closing Gifts No Comments

While real estate professionals sift through their options to thank their buyers for doing business with them and fight overwhelm and confusion, the founders of Life Goes on Roadmap™ offer a refreshing new solution with lasting benefits.

Unlike bottles of wine, gift baskets, and other consumable gifts, Life  Goes on Roadmap is a tool homeowners are likely to keep for a lifetime. This system helps them organize their most crucial financial documents, personal contacts, household operations, and other household matters in one place before life serves up a bump in the road.

“Life Goes on Roadmap™ is a great gift to send to new homeowners three months after they move into their new homes.  It’s a great way to demonstrate care for the client after the sale,” says Nancy Juetten, co-creator of this powerful tool.

After completing a real estate purchase, buyers are excited about the dreams to come true in their new homes. They are already planning where they are going to place the furnishings, where they are going to store their valuables, and how they are going to learn to master the systems in their home (power, water, gas, HVAC, etc) so they can live comfortably and safely. They are also keenly aware of their finances and the resources that were required to make the purchase in the first place.

The Life Goes on Roadmap™ system for personal financial information organization is an empowering toolkit to support homeowners in getting their essential information organized and household contacts and operations mastered so they can be in control, no matter what life serves up next.

Home burglaries, natural disasters (fire, hurricane, flood) and the 4 D’s — disability, disease, divorce, or death — are ‘real life’ situations that can cause homeowners drama, trauma and chaos when they least expect it. The Life Goes on Roadmap system guides homeowners to get ahead of these situations before they hit close to home. The system includes accountability and proven tools and support to get the mission accomplished.

The creators have turned getting organized into a game to win instead of a chore to put off until later. They also share support and community so gift recipients can benefit from expert support, without requiring a moment of the real estate professional’s valuable time.

Juetten says, “Life Goes on Roadmap is a personal, practical, and profound gift that homeowners keep forever and consider an invaluable asset that serves them when life serves up a bump in the road. It helps them get the crucial financial documents and information organized, while also igniting important conversations that need to happen between family members.

Giving this gift can add fuel to referrals to the real estate professional who provided the gift in the first place. That offers the promise for more deals to get done.”

It’s available for purchase from this website.

Real estate professionals can also license and customize the system as their own.

Business Professionals and Leaders Optimize Productivity and Morale with One-Time Your Business™ Course

Business Success, Recommended Resources No Comments

With a New Year soon to debut, team leaders and business professionals are thinking about how they can inspire and support their teams to be more productive in 2019 so they can have more time to do what they love. That’s why gifts that relate to better organization are so timely right now.

“Managers and leaders looking for gifts to support their teams in achieving big, bold goals for the New Year will find One-Time Your Business to be a gift that keeps on giving in terms of improved team productivity, improved morale, and less team turnover,” Top 1% Mortgage Professional and Course Creator Mitchell says.

After all, the average American spends 2.5 days each year looking for lost items, collectively costing U.S. households $2.7 billion annually in replacement costs so suggests a recent report from Pixie Technology Inc. The report also states that multitasking is the most cited cause for misplacing items with almost half of Americans saying trying to juggle more than one task leads to them forgetting where they placed a valuable.

The OTYB™ course covers hot topics week by week to guide students to optimize their productivity so they can have more time to do what they love.

 

 

 

Week 1: Get Organized, Time Blocking, Online Calendar, Voicemail & One-timing
Week 2: Task Management, One-tasking, Checklists & Web Forms
Week 3: Inbox Efficiency, Email Tips, Email Templates & Landing Pages
Week 4: Eliminating Objections & Avoiding Mistakes
Week 5: Scripts, Video & Reviews
Week 6: Presentation, Embracing Your Strengths & Team Building
Week 7: Touch Points, Lead Generation & Database Management (CRM)
Week 8: Next Steps, Time Wasters, Conclusion & Graduation

The lost time experienced on the job searching for items that can’t easily be located also has costly consequences. That is one of the reasons Tina Mitchell created the One-Time Your Business 8 Week Burn. This is an 8-week course business professionals can take from wherever they live, work way too hard or play. It’s designed for those who are tired of being busy, not getting anything done, and still not making the money they want to.

To date, hundreds of business professionals have graduated from the eight week online course to eliminate time and money wasters, organize their electronic inbox to save hours of time, make the most of time-saving apps, and gain mastery over change and mistakes.

Graduates define clear goals, stay focused, stop draining creative and physical energy, and deploy powerful strategies to follow through with confidence, while easily identifying and ditching distractions and dead ends.
Mitchell says the course focuses on small successes, taking the hard road, and embracing failures as participants create new, lasting habits that make a profound difference in the quality of life each and every student enjoys – on the job and off.

About Tina Mitchell

Top 1% Mortgage Professional, Radio Show Host, Author, and OTYB™ Course Creator Tina Mitchell created the One-Time Your Business course to support business professionals who complain all too often about not having enough time to get their most crucial business tasks completed so they can have more time to do what they love. Mitchell is also the founder and creator of Mortgage Triangle Software that is used by mortgage professionals nationwide.

Today hundreds of graduates are celebrating the results the course promises to enjoy productive, happy lives of achievement and contribution while opening up valuable time to enjoy family, friends, and hobbies.

Progress from a Lean Start Up Called Life Goes on Roadmap™

Business Success, Courage, Life Goes on Roadmap, Measuring Results No Comments

What if you left behind what you used to do and went ALL IN to create the product, service, or offering that felt like your most important work to do?

What if you applied your 100% focus to that new endeavor and let the cards fall where they may?

What then?

These are the questions I have considered most of 2018 as I did exactly that.

After spending years creating a platform as the Bye Bye Boring Bio expert and Get Known Get Paid Mentor, I set it aside to put my focus almost exclusively on Life Goes on Roadmap™ in January of this year.

Life Goes on Roadmap™ is a system for personal financial information organization that I felt called to co-create with my husband Steve to meet a very important need. I wanted power, access and control over our most important financial information and documents in case something should happen to him.  I also wanted to have the peace of mind that I could drive my life forward with confidence if it should come to that.

Once we got my own needs met in this regard, it occurred to us that families everywhere could benefit from what we created. We decided to go ALL IN and offer our ‘experience product’ for sale online.

Decisions We Made Early On

  • Operate as a lean start up and fund every initiative from cash flow.
  • Measure success by lessons learned and progress made, in addition to sales.
  • Earn social proof of the product and media credibility through the power of publicity and outstanding virtual training delivery.
  • Make it easy for potential clients and licensees to find us in a Google search, even as a new offering.
  • Forgo a fancy website in favor of a simple opt in page and a sales letter for consumer sales that promises powerful benefits.
  • Focus on three niches:  consumers – Prime Timers in particular, financial advisors, and real estate professionals.
  • Have a presence at two of the most relevant industry conferences that serve fee only financial advisors and seek out connection opportunities with real estate professionals, starting with people we already know.
  • Create special web pages to serve financial advisors and real estate/mortgage professionals to answer their questions and showcase the benefits of licensing our system as their own.

January:

  • We got a bright idea that inspired us to create a new ‘experience product’ quickly.
  • We had zero ezine subscribers.
  • We had zero endorsements from people of influence.
  • We had zero sales.

April, June and October

  • We hosted three Life Goes on Roadmap™ Virtual Road Trips for clients after promoting them by webinar, BeLive.TV broadcast, social media, and ezine. Our aim was to earn proof of concept and feedback to make our product and delivery even better, while testing various price points to determine which resonated most with buyers based on their purchase decisions.

July

  • We decided to offer our product to financial advisors to license and brand as their own as a means to touching more lives and making a bigger impact.

November

  • Life Goes on Roadmap™ has sold and served 140 families around the world to rave reviews.
  • We’ve earned 3152 opt in subscribers — thanks to creating a Facebook ad that has converted consistently. The list grows every day, and the Facebook ad has been shared 161+ times and invited 65+ comments so far.
  • Our product has earned endorsements from influential industry experts and groups, including Sheryl Garrett, NAPFA, and video bloggers to prime timers in Canada and Australia so far.
  • Our product has been approved for use by the compliance departments for LPL, GIA, and others, opening the door for thousands more to easily sign on.
  • We are proud that 11 licensees from across the USA  with one in Canada have branded our system as their own to support their clients in getting their acts together.
  • Families have become “I’m Ready for Anything Road Trippers” who are ready for whatever life serves up next, and they sing the product’s praises on social media, to their friends and family, and even produce YouTube videos to share the value.
  • We’ve refined our message as we’ve talked to thousands of people by webinar, teleclass, private and public Facebook messages, BeLive.TV video and more.
  • We’ve refined our fulfillment systems to be simpler and more efficient.
  • We’ve welcomed five figures in sales so far, and new licensees and consumers come on board every week.
  • We’ve funded our progress 100% from cash flow.

Resources that have Supported Our Progress

  • Chris Flett – Ghost CEO – business coaching on the licensing piece in particular
  • An amazing virtual assistant – Jacki Opferman
  • A talented graphic designer – Victoria Vinton
  • Facebook Faucet Training –  Tammy Lane
  • 123rf – royalty free images for Facebook Advertising
  • Copy coaching with Nancy  Tierney of Firecracker Communications
  • Web page design – Tina Walker of Delegation Divas
  • Our fulfillment house – Vervante
  • 1 Shopping Cart – online sales processing
  • LeadPages —  easy to create opt in pages that convert
  • Every online course, coaching engagement, webinar, or event I’ve attended since 2010 has played a role to acquire the know how and confidence to execute on every initiative.

Lessons Learned So Far

  • Focus matters. It’s possible to make bold progress on an inspired initiative when you declare it to be your top priority and let everything else be a distraction.
  • Think bigger from the start.  Aim high right out of the gate. We’ve been focusing on earning credibility and compliance approval among credible associations and organizations that serve hundreds or thousands of financial advisors. While it has been a slow and steady effort, we’ve gained meaningful traction in the early going with several influential organizations. This should set us up well to accelerate our results and impact in the New Year.
  • The message matters.  Listen carefully every day to what people say and respond with refinements that make a good effort even better.
  • Connect with potential clients in person — either by Zoom video conference, across the conference or dining room table, by sponsorship/exhibit table at the right ventures, or BeLive.TV. It’s a lot more effective than pounding potential clients by email.
  • Measure what you treasure and make smart decisions and take wise actions based on the numbers.  
  • Make a habit of reflecting on progress, honoring mis-steps and  mistakes to get the lessons, and celebrating wins, big or small.  It’s a long distance race, and it growth happens step by step and sometimes in a leaps and bounds kind of way.
  • Keep a positive attitude to help navigate the rough spots.
  • Make new friends along the journey.  Every conversation with a new person of influence in this new marketplace offers the opportunity to create a new relationship, be of contribution, and to receive ideas and support to fuel whatever may be coming next.  Be arms wide open to welcome the abundance with trust that it’s all good.

2019 is still to be written, and we intend to continue this journey and see what additional magic we can make.

Stay tuned for future updates from this lean start up known as Life Goes on Roadmap™.

Your biggest risk …

Business Success, Courage, Life Goes on Roadmap No Comments

Risk

[risk]
noun
  1. exposure to the chance of injury or loss; a hazard or dangerous chance: It’s not worth the risk.
  2. Insurance .
    1. the hazard or chance of loss.
    2. the degree of probability of such loss.
    3. the amount that the insurance company may lose.
    4. a person or thing with reference to the hazard involved in insuring him, her, or it.
    5. the type of loss, as life, fire, marine disaster, or earthquake, against which an insurance policy is drawn.

While attending a mix and mingle party last week, the guests gathered in small groups to answer deep questions and get beyond typical small talk.

There were little cards to review — each with a provocative question on each.  Our task was to answer the question.

My question was “What is the biggest risk you’ve taken?”

I thought about it and said that it’s been a big risk to walk away from the work upon which I have built my professional reputation since 2001 to focus on a new initiative that feels like it’s my most important work to do to date.

Folks said, “It hasn’t looked like a big risk to us. It has looked seamless and natural.”

That got me thinking.

My hubby Steve and I had quite a conversation about it.

He turned to a sports analogy.

Steve said that those divers who jump from the high tower to do all those flips, twists, and turns invest years and years of practice to make their dives look seamless and natural.  All that practice pays off in the clutch moments when gold medals are at stake.

When  Sully landed that plane with 155 passengers on board on the Hudson River, it was his 40+ years at a pilot he drew upon to make an epic decision in a dire situation to save every soul on that flight.

Since 2006, I’ve been creating information products, leading group courses, speaking live and virtually, list building, and copy writing in connection with my other business. It’s taken years to hone and practice those skills to create impact for clients and in my own balance sheet.

When I switched my focus to Life Goes on Roadmap™ this year, I applied what I had learned from all those prior years of study, practice, and action to the new initiative with extreme focus. What has been different this time is how many times I have said NO to other things that could have distracted me from my primary goal.

It’s been a huge risk to take nevertheless.

  • Walking away from being known in a certain way to blaze a whole new trail is a big deal.
  • Being resourceful to apply all the skills acquired over the years to start up and grow without taking on debt or betting the farm is a big deal.
  • Creating buzz and credibility for a new offering takes confidence, persistence, and moxie.
  • Creating something from nothing in collaboration with my husband less than a year ago to make an impact for clients and make money is a big deal, too.

If it looks seamless and natural, make no mistake.

There is a lot of paddling going on below the surface to make the dream work.

We are working it.

Every single day.

  • What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?
  • What have you learned?
  • What are you doing to work the dream and live the risk every day?

Comment below. Go ahead. Inspire me!

[For Financial Advisors] Broken glass, four guns, drug stuff, and a pawn shop receipt …

Life Goes on Roadmap No Comments

There we were, meeting and greeting NAPFA members at the Philadelphia Fall Conference, having a wonderful time … when we got a scary email from a neighbor from our hometown of Bellevue, Washington.

Our garage door was open, and there was broken glass near the front door.

While we were sharing how the Life Goes on Roadmap™ system for personal financial information organization could be a value add for fee-only financial advisors to serve their clients more deeply and bring more Good & Plenty for all, burglars broke windows and locks at our home and stole many valuables that they conveniently carted away with both of our cars.

Just imagine our shock and fear to receive the dreaded “We regret to inform you…” telephone calls from police officers and neighbors while we were 3000 miles from home, alerting us to our misfortune.

Here’s the thing.

Crazy, random, unthinkable things happen every day.

  • Sometimes they happen to you.
  • Sometimes they happen to your family members.
  • Sometimes they happen to your clients.

Situations like our home burglary and its dramatic and riveting aftermath — including finding four guns, drug needles, and a pawn shop ticket for thousands of dollars of stolen goods in one of our cars — strengthen our resolve that we must wave the flag so others get ahead of these kinds of things.

We want families everywhere to avoid some of the hardships that accompany dealing with an unexpected crisis or one of the three D’s — disease, disability or death.

Guiding clients to get ahead of “What If” and “God Forbid” moments before they become hardships is the underlying benefit of bringing Life Goes on Roadmap™ to a fee only financial planning practice.

Every compliance department who has reviewed it so far has approved it.

  • Visit this link to check out how affordable it can be to bring Life Goes on Roadmap™ to your clients to serve them in this value added way.
  • Discover how simple and easy it can be to engage your clients … just by bringing a Life Goes on Roadmap 3-ring binder to every get acquainted or client service appointment. The system truly sells itself!
  • Schedule a chat with me to get your questions answered and explore additional ways you can incorporate this system into your practice to serve your clients and be proud to do so.

Life really does turn on a dime. Getting ahead of these kinds of situations before they become hardships is a gift you can give to every one of your clients to guide them to get ahead of life before drama, trauma or chaos hit close to home.

Yours in service,

Nancy Juetten, Your Get It Done Accountability Guide

Steve Juetten, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional

What did he do?

He used a service called 99  Designs, and within a few days, he had 175 designs to choose from created by graphic designers all around the world for $299.

Steve first created a brief to describe what he was looking for. Then designers from a global community responded with their awesome ideas. We were astounded by the speed, variety, and creativity. We were delighted by our choices.

We were able to create polls for our team to help narrow down the abundant choices to the favorite options.

Then, Steve was able to connect with the designers who made the final cut to make suggestions to refine them to be absolutely what he wanted.

Steve said the designers were incredibly responsive, courteous, and of service.

So within a few days from start to finish, Steve solved an important problem.   He wanted a rock star cover for his latest book project, and he got one.

Curious about the winner?

Here it is!

Now he’ll engage that designer to create the interior of the book so the interior matches the awesome cover.

By the way, Steve’s book will be available for purchase starting in late October. I’ll be sure to keep you updated about that.  This is definitely a great gift item for the young professionals on your holiday shopping list!
