January 21, 2013 Hi Larry, I just wanted to send you a follow-up email to our conversation that we had last week. I wanted to let you know how everything has been going since I started. I remember being in your class, and you asked us to write down what our goal was for annual income. I wrote down that I wanted to be making 115,000 per year. At the time, that sounded like a big accomplishment, but as time passed, I found my goal rising and rising. 

Using the strategies that I learned in your class, I’ve raised the bar! It’s only been four years and I’m already over 300k! Not to mention the trips and awards along the way! Never thought that would be possible. Thanks for all your help up front in making me successful. Wishing you the best, Sincerely, Justin D. Mundt Sent from my iPhone

Cindy – February 16, 2011 TESTIMONIAL REGARDING LARRY JOSEPHS:

Larry and I have worked together over the past 6 years and I have learned a great deal from him, personally and professionally. Even though I have been in the financial services industry over 31 years, Larry has a fresh approach to training, coaching and mentoring while tapping into an individual’s core spirit for excellence and success. He is effective with seasoned sales professionals as well as brand new associates……no small feat! Larry is highly motivational, entertaining, fun and inspiring. He teaches and lives integrity, impeccable values and discipline.

Larry’s “real life” scenarios and stories effectively translate to results “on the street.” In addition, Larry customizes his seminars, workshops and break-out sessions to the particular needs and wants of the customer…..cool! Not a “one size fits all approach.” I look forward to working with Larry in the years to come! God Bless! Thanks again.

• Matt – February 2, 2011 I’ve worked with Larry on and off the last 10 years and there are few who I respect more and have learned more from than Larry Josephs. I love his seminars and continue to pick up new ideas and strategies every time I hear him speak. I am convinced; there is NOTHING this man can’t do. He is highly connected, resourceful, and knowledgeable. He doesn’t just talk in philosophy or concepts; rather you will leave with specific techniques that are proven to work. Let’s just say, there is no one I’d rather be in the foxhole with than Larry Josephs. Believe me when I tell you, “I CAN’T”, is not in his vocabulary! It will cost you more to not hire Larry, then to invest in yourself and your organization and bring in one of the best LEADERS in the business. When you hire Larry, you get more than coach, trainer, or leader…you get a great friend. It doesn’t get much better than LJ. Best wishes and much success!
