In response to “Advisor alert: New Year’s resolutions are rubbish
New Year’s resolutions are rubbish–I agree wholeheartedly about this subject matter. I’ve been in the life insurance business for 34 years and I’ve seen too many agents set goals that are not reachable.

In response to “Referral strategy: Find alternative centers of influence
I teach business golf principles. Networking on the golf course and creating fusion marketing partners with COIs will take your business to the next level when it comes to getting referrals. For example–
I teamed up with a spa, fitness facility and hair stylist by offering my clients a percentage off their services for referring me, which makes me a resource to my current clients. You can do this in any industry. It just takes a little time brainstorming who your COIs are. Great article!

In response to “Would you consider getting a reverse mortgage?”
Yes, they are expensive as costs include counseling and run as much as $6,000. It was higher a few years ago. Yes, it can be rolled into the loan, however, for $350,000, one may only receive about $190,000. There is also a minimum age requirement and it must be your primary residence.
