Inspired, Emerging Advisors Need Apply

The Emerging Advisor Growth Accelerator program is designed to help advisors master the business development and interpersonal skills crucial to growing and finding success in the industry.

New advisors like you are joining the industry or new firms with more financial planning knowledge than ever before – but lack the business development and client relationship training necessary to find sustainable success. Let’s fix that. New cohorts start in September 2024!

Learn Today to Grow Tomorrow

The Emerging Growth Accelerator is an intensive ten-week program led by two of Carson’s Executive Business Coaches designed to quickly improve advisors’ skill in key areas for growth:


Determine the path that will help you get to where you want to be in one year, 5 years, 10 years, and beyond.


Learn how to efficiently and effectively accomplish tasks crucial to growth.

Business development

Create a business development plan and focus on blueprinting, your personal brand and your value story to attract the right clients.

Prospecting conversations

Learn how to create introductions from existing clients, cultivate your COIs and convert prospects to clients.

What Advisors Are Saying About the Program

I knew to grow I needed to be pushed out of my comfort zone, this program did that for me. I received a lot of good information and I'm implementing it to help my growth.
I love the program! Very insightful and everyone gives feedback for growth and confidence to succeed.
This program is an ideal for advisors who are looking to learn how to better organize your practice and convey your value as an advisor. The EAGA coaches do a great job of pushing us along and helping us take significant strides in a short period of time!
Own your business, do not let it own you. Great program to organize yourself and expedite you on a plan of where you want to go.
If you need an experience that allows you to re-focus, re-assess and improve your plan to grow and develop a financial planning practice, this is the course for you.
You may be doing all the right things, but if you aren’t sure of yourself along the way, you’ll hold yourself back and short-serve clients because you’ll be focused on your own confidence-building. EAGA is the solution for all this – jump in and build confidence in your process.
Joining this group has helped me to realize my potential is limitless.
