10 Books Advisors Should Read This Summer

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Summer reading. Is that the right terminology? Summer reading is usually light reading, the type you take to the beach or enjoy on a hammock in the shade. When an advisor reads, there’s often a yellow highlighter nearby or a pad with a “to-do” list. These are 10 books that should inspire you with ideas to add more clients and get more business.

Obviously I can’t promote my own book as a “Top 10,” but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention it. I wrote “Captivating the Wealthy Investor” (2004). It looks at how to identify, meet, cultivate and convert prospects within the wealthiest 2% to 5% of your market. It makes the case for social prospecting. Enough said.
