I received an overwhelmingly positive response from every advisor regarding Adri’s presentation. The advisors were presented with a new way of looking at their business yet it seemed so familiar to them all along. Adri has such a wonderful personality and the ability to push people to rediscover why they do what they do.

I cannot tell you how much I got out of your presentation, and how empowered I felt after hearing you speak. In the 19 or so years I have been with Lincoln, I have listened many excellent presentations, however, yours is the only one with which I felt an immediate connection, from which I had that electrifying "ah-ha!" moment.

If You Hate Asking for Referrals, You'll Love This Way to Get New Clients

3 Key Components To Inspire Referrals Naturally Without Asking

Your clients love you, so why aren’t they sending you more referrals? You’ve tried asking in meetings, suggesting in letters, but it all feels pushy and wrong, generating dismal results. But as a woman, when you embrace three key components, you will naturally inspire ongoing referrals without EVER asking. Strangers will remember what you do and share you with others.  Clients will easily share your value in a more meaningful way and well friends and family. Using this approach, they will finally understand what you do and become your greatest source of referrals. 

During this presentation advisors will learn:

  • Why asking for referrals is NOT the answer and why you must do things differently.

  • How women advisors turn their purpose into a powerful referral generator.

  • Why the future of your business will be ALL about referrals. 

Managing Energy
not Time

How Women Advisors Accomplish More On Their Terms

Time, there never seems to be enough of it. Growing and managing a business, balancing the challenges of families and friends, not to mention your health and well-being, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. You start your day determined to stay focused, only to leave exhausted, realizing you never got to do what you are good at, bringing in new business. For most women, time is not the issue but simply a symptom of a bigger problem.

During this presentation advisors will learn:

  • The brain; what makes women unique and embracing the differences.

  • Why time blocking and more hours is not the answer.

  • How to integrate a new system that serves your life as a woman.

Classy, Feminine & Effective

A fresh new authentic approach to getting new business faster

Most women advisors have spent years adapting to a business model designed by men to help men attract male clients. Prospecting, selling, and closing while successful in their day were not intended to capitalize on women’s strengths. Today’s female advisor is embracing a fresh new approach to building a successful business that is more classy, feminine, and effective. Building relationships, inspiring and motivating creates an authentic foundation to a more successful approach to growing your business that feels effortless.

Participants will learn:

  • Why leveraging who you are as a woman is your source of accelerated growth.

  • A new authentic business model that feels effortless.

  • Why your unique message and model will keep you focused, highly productive, and constantly energized.

Women Advisors go from Ordinary to Extraordinary

Why Embracing your Brilliance Makes Success Feel Effortless

For too long, women squeezed their feminine nature into a framework filled with testosterone using processes that men designed for men to prospect men. For women to succeed, it’s not about working harder, faster, or better, and it’s certainly not about putting in more hours and working long days, oh hell no.  Women must shed the “old rules” for building a business and start focusing on their Unique Brilliance, the true source of their success, leveraging their unique brilliance to accelerate growth.Let’s be clear about one thing: the masculine model just doesn’t suit the woman’s way of doing business. It’s too impersonal, too structured. Women can’t connect through profiling questionnaires; we start with a warm smile and take it from there.

Participants will learn:

  • What does extraordinary look like, and do you have the courage to be extraordinary.

  • Why your unique brilliance is the source of extraordinary business and personal growth.

  • How to integrate your brilliance into your business with ease.
