70% of US Workers report that personal finances are their #1 stress in life. They worry about money more than they do their physical health. How sad, how unnecessary, how about we do something about it! People don’t need expensive financial advisors, CPA's or attorneys speaking down to them while using industry jargon. They need a trusted advocate, a coach, a safe place to ask questions without being charged a fee or sold a financial product.

How can we, as HR Professionals, make a lasting difference in the lives of our employees? What can we do that will reap big rewards without costing a bundle? These are challenges HR Professionals like you face daily. Join us as we take a close look at financial wellness—the consequences when it’s lacking and the opportunity for positively impacting organizations at every level.
The impact of financial stress is great and oftentimes seeps into one’s physical, emotional, relational, and professional well-being. Financial distress is real, it’s chronic and business leaders are feeling the direct impact of their employees under-performing due to financial stress and distraction. 70% of US Workers report that money is the top source of their stress.

Servant Selling: A Proven System for Top Performing Professionals Very early in his career as a young man, Brent was putting up head-turning sales numbers in the financial services industry and in turn was being invited to speak to organizations and their high performing teams, normally full of professionals much older than him, with decades more experience. Brent’s ability to challenge self-limiting beliefs, redirect default behaviors, and create huge results is something very un-common in itself!
So many of the negative connotations associated with the title of Salesperson are generations old and unfortunately, well-deserved. No respectable, business professional wants to be known as “Salesy” or as “Pushy, Slimy or Greasy”. So, where do these scripts come from and more importantly, are these potentially self-limiting beliefs to our success as business professionals, who are responsible for business development?
These principles have become a cornerstone in Brent’s life and something that he has passionately committed his life to sharing and coaching with others:
Principle #1: Role VS Soul Principle #2: How are you Being? Principle #3: Persuasion through Serving Principle #4: The Emotional Brain Principle #5: Communicating with Purpose
With his first-hand experience in business and multi-million-dollar sales teams, Brent offers a peer’s perspective when partnering with entrepreneurs, executives and sales team leaders. And as his clients will tell you, he is a natural listener, is genuinely invested in his clients, and offers actionable and effective solutions that you can feel proud about.
