Helping Folks Create A Rich
By Beau Henderson, RFC
It typically only happens when tragedy strikes -
you get sick, someone you love passes away, you lose your job.
Those moments force us to stop our busy lives and consider where
we are, how we got there... and where, if we truly have the
lives we wanted, we would go. We all have those moments. But how
often do such moments truly transform us? How often do they
actually lead to a better life? Rarely! And the reason is that
creating the life you want is not just a philosophical question.
It’s a question for your financial advisor.
What is a Rich Life?
Most clients expect their financial advisors to
help them accomplish one very important objective: to make sure
they will have enough money to last the rest of their lives. But
truly, your financial advisor is capable of doing so much more.
Readers of the Insurance Pro Shop® newsletter can help
their clients go beyond a wealthy life -- one that is simply
financially comfortable -- and help them live a rich life.
It’s easy to imagine, especially in the midst of
financial troubles, that if only you could amass a comfortable
amount of wealth, everything else in life would fall into place.
Most people live their entire lives in pursuit of that aim. They
forgo vacations. They miss recitals. They lose touch with their
closest friends and go years without seeing their relatives. And
when it’s time to retire, when they are able to sit back and
take stock of all the money they have, are they happy? Of course
I learned the secret to creating a rich life from
my clients. These people are all of varying ages, backgrounds
and interests, yet they all tell me the same thing: having their
finances in order was important, but the things that gave their
lives meaning were the experiences they sought out and the
relationships they built.
Living with Intention!
Rich living is about having the financial
security that allows you time and resources to build the
relationships and the memories that will enrich every day that
you live. This requires you to put your dreams and wishes not
just onto paper, but also into action, and there’s no one better
equipped to help a client make that happen than a qualified
insurance agent or financial planner.
I begin my work with clients by asking them to
answer this question: what is important to you? Maybe it’s
seeing your grandkids more? Maybe it’s seeing the world?
Whatever your goals are, chances are money is one of the primary
things that have stopped you from pursuing those dreams. We can
overcome that obstacle together.
There’s nothing wrong with conventional financial
planning. When done well, this helps ensure clients’ security,
peace of mind and quality of life. That’s all very positive.
But, we can do so much more!
Help your clients to not only improve their
relationship with money, but to live their unique definition of
a fulfilled life with purpose.
Beau was studying at the
University of Georgia to be a psychologist when his father passed
away at 49 years of age from lung cancer. He felt helpless as he
watched his mother, who had been married to his father since she was
18, struggle with financial decisions. He left college to return
home and help her piece her life together.
Through his family’s
heartbreaking experience, he found a silver lining when he realized
that he could make a profound difference in someone’s life by
helping them navigate important financial decisions. His interest in
psychology, coupled with his fascination with financial matters, led
him to a career he loves. Now over 15 years later, he has never
stopped learning and growing through his work.

As 'Beau' reminds us all there is much
more to life than making and accumulating money. You have a great opportunity to
really help your prospects to weather this ongoing financial storm and
help them to enjoy a rich life now and in the future. People need and want your help to achieve the financial security
they’ve been dreaming about and deserve. Aren’t life insurance
annuities a way for us to give families the
safety, guarantees and growth they are looking for? When
are you going to get back to the basics and start actually helping
people, instead of just trying to make a sale?
