I heard Mr Dunwoody speak on the Dorsey Wright podcast the other day and was very impressed.  Has anyone ever heard him speak or purchased his workbook / cd set.  Was wondering if the $289 was worth it?

Dunwoody is worth every dime. He was a near washout failure as a broker trainee. He took stock of himself and decided to interview his firm's top producers to find out what they were doing that he wasn't. He incorporated what he learned and rose to become a million dollar producer. This guy bootstrapped himself up from zero to the top of our profession. He has a unique way of looking at things and some call his delivery an aquired taste. He is definately coming to at a much higher level than most motivational speakers. You need to be conscious through out his presentation or you won't get it.

how do you order the dunwoody material?

Absolutely. About 4 years ago, I called him and we talked for about an hour and a half. He told me to read his book and call him back, so we could talk about it. I called him back and he spent another two hours on the phone with me, expecting nothing in return.


YOu won't be disappointed.

I agree on all counts.  Bob rocks!

I have the CD/workbook set.  Worth every penny.  But, as said by others, you must APPLY it or you get nothing!

I've got the whole package, book, workbook, and a five cd set. Good stuff, one and all. What sets Dunwoody apart is his experience. He's not some guru talking theory. He knows our hopes and fears because he's lived them himself. He is, in my opinion, the best coach/motivator in our business today.

How would you compare him to a Nick Murray?  Same kind of stuff?

No better.  The only thing Nick Murray has ever sold are his tapes and books....

We had a mandatory seminar with Murray many years ago.  Our bank brokerage actually debited our paychecks to pay his fee.  The two things I got out of it were:


1. The only investment people should have when setting up a sytematic withdrawal is growth stocks (this was in 1999).  He ridiculed all the other asset classes.


2.  He kept saying, "We are doing God's work."  I'm not kidding, he really said that.


I guess what made it worse is that I had to pay to sit there all day.

Here is my concern about Dunwoody.  From what I can tell he was in production 20-30 years ago.  I have been in the business over the past 6 years and have seen how much the business has changed in just that time.  There is so much focus now on "fee-based" relationships over comission based transactional relationships.  Does Dunwoody address this?  Does he understand the new advisor approach?.

He addresses issues like priorities, focus, and 'the mental game', not the mechanics of the business.  Human nature hasn't changed since Bob was in production.  Too, his work isn't really based upon his time in production, but rather his ongoing study of successful advisors he's come to know.

Dunwoody is as current as it gets. His business model/ideas/motivation/get off your ass and get to work advice is as valid today as it was 5 years ago, ten years ago, or 20 years ago. This is so because while there has been a shift in the way we're paid the biggest part of the job, finding the money and getting it on the books hasn't changed. Bob is worth the money at 10 times the cost.
