The financial services industry is being disrupted by regulations, people living longer, and the largest change to the workforce the US has ever seen. Financial planners are frustrated and working harder than ever to succeed, and this disruption is the wall between them and their business growth. Thankfully, this wall can be knocked down. “Free Throws for Financial Professionals” helps financial planners conquer this frustration, grow their businesses, and reap the success they truly want. The book is available on Amazon in both print and Kindle formats.

In response to the book hitting multiple best seller categories, McGlothlin shared, “The success of the book on launch day clearly demonstrates the hunger and passion financial professionals have around not only building a successful business but helping as many Americans as possible reach their financial goals. The insights outlined in the book come from my own personal experience of building a highly successful business and career in financial services. I am grateful for the opportunity to share and help thousands of financial professionals do the same.”
