This is a table that you want to be around. It’s a table that brings opportunities to your practice. This is where all the movers and shakers get together. This is where you want to get rubbing shoulders with guys that really have it figured out. They have made a big difference in my career.
MDRT is unique for the amount of emphasis they put on truly understanding your business and your clients. Most other organizations are very product focused. MDRT doesn’t talk about any products — they rely more on understanding the base emotion of why you do what you do.
MDRT taught me how to think big. I see other people who are my age with my experience doing really amazing things, and that is what I was missing from other organizations.
MDRT is an organization whose sole purpose is to help their members grow.
At MDRT I am surrounded by the best of the best. Not only that, the best of the best who are willing to share what has made them successful.
I’m part of a lot of associations and organizations in our industry and am very involved with many companies, but the one thing that is lacking in all of those other places is the fact that they all focus on products and services and not the Whole Person.
