Reaching your goals, understanding your purpose as a financial advisor and amping up referral rates are covered in the most-viewed videos of 2023 on MDRT’s YouTube channel.
These ideas came from MDRT Annual Meetings that spanned decades — from 1986 to 2022 — and from MDRT members worldwide. But no matter the decade, what remains the same is the spirit of generosity in which top financial advisors share some of their best ideas with their peers. No one becomes successful alone. It was through both the sharing of ideas and the willingness to be open to those ideas that sparked success. It’s the formula that stands the test of time. Take a look at a few of these videos:
