    For years, Mike White, one of GAMA International’s past presidents, told his new associates during orientation that “most advisors fail not because of what they don’t know, but because of what they don’t do.” Yet for most people, measuring objective data on a timely and consistent basis is unrealistic without some sort of collaboration, activity management, and, most importantly, accountability.
    The program is built upon three principles that also form the foundation for building a successful financial services practice: collaboration, activity management, and accountability. Business Builder Plus ™ ensures that more advisors have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers to garner success, to do what is needed, and to live the life they dreamed of for themselves. The program is a method of setting goals around sales activity and then meeting with a peer group to review these goals, share best practices, and motivate one another to achieve more. The system of mutual accountability in a collaborative peer group that measures objective data on a timely and consistent basis is designed to provide feedback on ways to help you build your business and achieve your goals.
