Van believes that the next decade will be “The Greatest Time Ever” for Insurance and Financial Service Professionals!!!
This is the “Greatest Time Ever” to be an insurance and financial professional. You are the most valuable people on the planet at this time. I will show you how to showcase this “value.” You will learn how it will be possible to have people literally beg you to share your information with their family and friends.
My talk will have three parts. First, I will share at least five “elevator talks” that will help you double, triple, even quadruple your appointments. These elevator talks are easy to learn and can be incorporated into your practice in as little time as a week. I have been able to make thirty to fifty appointments per week for years using these talks. You will increase your appointments immediately.
Second, I will share a presentation that is so powerful that the first response from your prospect or client will not be “I want to buy.” Although the result will be that they will buy. Rather, their first response will be “will you share this information with my mother and father? Will you share this with my brother and sister? Is there any way you come to where I work and give this presentation?”
Finally, I will share at least five sales ideas that you clients will find beneficial and you will be able to implement the day you arrive home form this meeting.
Your production will increase in days or weeks rather than months or years!
We have the opportunity of a lifetime to not only be successful, but significant. Our time is now! I cannot wait to be with all of you!

NAIFA-OC Breakfast Meeting: Congressman McCarthy
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Congressman Kevin McCarthy represents the 23rd District of California, which spans Kern, Tulare, and Los Angeles counties. First elected in 2006, Kevin is a native of Bakersfield and a fourth-generation Kern County resident. He is committed to policies that give small businesses and entrepreneurs the confidence they need to hire, expand, invest and innovate. After the 2010 midterm elections, Kevin was elected by his colleagues to serve as Majority Whip of the United States House of Representatives.
Kevin started his own small business before the age of 21. He built Kevin O's Deli from the ground up, even enlisting his father's help in building the deli's counter in their garage. He worked hard, hired employees and enjoyed success in his community. That's also where he first encountered government overregulation. The countless frivolous and redundant rules, as well as the taxes small businesses like his were burdened with, spurred Kevin's interest in public service. When Kevin sold his business, he used the profits to put himself through college and graduate school. He received both his undergraduate degree and his Masters in Business Administration from California State University, Bakersfield.
During college, Kevin accepted an internship with then-Congressman Bill Thomas, and soon became a member of Congressman Thomas's staff. Kevin won his first election in 2000 as Trustee to the Kern Community College District. In 2002, McCarthy was elected to represent the 32nd Assembly District in the California State Assembly. As a freshman legislator, he was selected unanimously by his Republican colleagues to serve as the Assembly Republican Leader, becoming the first freshman legislator and the first legislator from Kern County to assume the top Republican post in the California State Assembly. Kevin worked with his colleagues in the Assembly and Senate and with the Governor to reduce California's budget deficit, overhaul the state worker's compensation system and enhance California's business climate to create more opportunities for California workers and businesses until he ran for Congress in 2006.
Kevin brings his personal experience as a small business owner and as an effective leader in the statehouse to Washington D.C. In his role as Majority Whip, Kevin leads the effort in Congress to advance common sense policies that will put America back on the path to prosperity. Since gaining control of the House in November 2010, Kevin and his Republican colleagues have blocked the largest tax increase in American history, cut out-of-control government spending by historic levels and passed numerous pieces of legislation that will help create jobs in America. These bills reduce the burden on small businesses, increase our nation's energy security by promoting domestic energy production, knock down barriers for small business owners to access capital and help increase certainty for the private sector.
Kevin will continue to fight to get Washington's fiscal house in order while promoting policies that empower the private sector to invest and create jobs.
When Kevin is not in Washington fighting for the constituents of California's 23rd District and for the future of America, he is home in Bakersfield with his wife Judy and two children Connor and Meghan.
