Andy Albright hosted the last episode of The Wednesday Call podcast for 2017 live from AMP Studios in Burlington, N.C.
The show opened with Andy reminding people about The Alliance’s National Convention in Raleigh, N.C. on Jan. 19-22. The keynote speaker will be John C. Maxwell. Before that event takes place, Albright will be hosting several boot camps in January. He will be in Providence, R.I. on Jan. 2, Dallas, Texas on Jan. 5, Florida (Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville) on Jan. 9 and he will hit Mobile, Ala., New Orleans, La. and Jackson, Miss. on Jan. 10.

One of the show’s topics focused on asking this: what you want to do and what you love doing? Most people are successful because they don’t want to go back to a time that was tough on them. Maybe they were broke or disgusted, so they worked hard to change things for the better.
What do you want and how does it look next year? You need to take time to figure that out now, so you can start taking steps to make it happen. It starts now, not later. What people will you surround yourself around that will help you make it happen? Everything you do matters. The decisions you make will determine where you go from here. Please take a few minutes to map out what you want and how you can make it happen.
Andy recognized people who have qualified for Seal Team 20 and agents who have won Good Samaritan Bonus checks in December.
For The Alliance to grow in a big way, Andy is trying to assemble a group who can achieve 33-10-6-5 to help us grow. The Alliance needs 33 people who can hire 10 quality people who can find six more agents who can make five sales per week. That equation will take The Alliance to 10,000 applications per week. That is the goal that Andy has set for The Alliance moving forward. This all starts with “Doing the Do.” That means selling, recruiting and building.
People let “circumstances” limit their performance. You can’t let “stuff” prevent you from doing what you should be doing. Everybody is dealing with problems, issues and circumstances. The people who are successful still find ways to keep plugging away at the task at hand.
There’s an old story about a donkey in a well. A man was messing with the donkey by throwing shovels of dirt. Instead of sitting there and letting the dirt trap it, the donkey shook the dirt off. When the dirt started covering his feet, he stepped up. Finally, the donkey climbed out of the well. That’s what it takes to be successful. Don’t let “dirt” pile up on you when you can move to make it go away.
Work hard to avoid confusion in what you do, minimize your mistakes and avoid consuming negative information.
