According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 288,000 jobs added in the US in June, 2014. This is an improvement over the 224,000 jobs that were added in May. Overall, employment has greatly improved through the first half of 2014 with a total of 1.4 million more jobs in the U.S. from January to June. The unemployment rate is now only 6.1% due to more jobs added and more people entering the workforce.
President Obama is pleased with the job increase, but says that there is still room for improvement. He would like decrease long-term unemployment and raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Minimum wage is currently only $7.25, which means that full time employees could make less than $15,000 a year (information from money.cnn.com).

As you may have heard, 2013 was a BIG year for the Alliance. In the past year, we’ve grown stronger and more successful than ever before and we’re going to make 2014 even more EPIC. But in order to gain success as a team, we have to grow stronger as individuals. Below we’ve listed some steps you can take to achieve new heights in 2014.
Reward yourself for your achievements.
You’ve made some strides that are worth celebrating, so make a list of all of the goals and achievements you reached in 2013. Celebrate your wins and take note of what you learned from your mistakes and what actions helped you become more successful. If you had a rough year, figure out what isn’t working and dedicate yourself to making changes for the better this year. If you had a great year, figure out what actions and resources helped you to become successful and use those as tools to become even more successful next year. Enter the New Year with confidence that you can do anything if you set your mind to it!
Now that you’ve got your list of achievements from the past year, make a new list of goals you want to achieve this year. Try to think of bigger and better goals for yourself in 2014. It’s hard to get anywhere if you don’t know your destination, so “hammer down” and set solid goals that you know you want bad enough to work to achieve them. Keep these goals with you all the time and make sure that you’re always working to achieve them. If goal setting is something that you struggle with, consider signing up for The Albright Challenge; it’s a great tool to help you stay on track and achieve your goals.
Keep track of your progress.
Make the commitment to look back at your goal list once a day or once a week to evaluate how far you’ve come and how much further you have to go. If you think that you could work harder, do it. If you think your goals aren’t challenging enough, set the bar a little higher. If you think your initial goals are a little too ambitious, take note of it and work to get as far as you can. The key is to stay committed to your goals and stay positive, even when things get tough.
Here at National Agents Alliance, we want to help all of our agents and staff members reach their full potential. That’s why we offer so many resources to help you out! If you ever feel like you need a little more training, or a little more encouragement, check out our list of resources available to you and make sure to take advantage of all of them (many are free!). Get fired up for 2014 because the Alliance is going to make this year’s goals BIGGER and better!

If you want to follow Andy Albright and the top agents’ lead, you have to do what they’re doing – and that includes reading the books that they’re reading. Andy doesn’t pick books for the month just for fun; he picks books that helped him succeed and can help you succeed as well. If you want to take the first step to success, you have to read!
Andy recognizes that not everyone loves to read. It can be difficult for some people to pick up a book; that’s why he recommends ripping out a page and reading it until you feel that you’ve understood it. Then you can move on to the next page, and continue until you’ve read the whole book. If you’re pressed for time, just take 10 to 15 minutes out of each day to read. The more you read, the more you’ll learn and you’ll be able to grow.
What book do you start with? The book of the month! Andy has made it easy for you to keep track of what the top agents are reading. He chooses one or two books every month for his book club, and members get these books sent directly to them at the beginning of each month at a discounted price! This is the easiest way to follow Andy’s lead. By joining the book club, you’ll save yourself time and money by having the books automatically sent to you with the price already discounted. Because Andy has already picked these books for you, you know you’ll have the keys to success in your hands every month. You can join Andy’s book club at https://www.shopatnaa.com/andysbookclub
If you aren’t a member yet, but want to know what the top agents are reading now, the books of the month for September 2013 are The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey and The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino. These are great books to start reading if you’re waiting on your membership to begin.
Andy also recently started an author page on www.goodreads.com. On this website you can rate Andy’s books, The 8 Steps to Success and Millionaire Maker Manual, rate the books of the month once you’ve read them, become a fan or friend of Andy, and see what others are saying about your favorite books.
BURLINGTON, N.C. – The final touches are being put in place at National Agents Alliance headquarters as staff members prepare to host agents from across the United Sates for the “Get Your Ship Together” Leadership Conference July 12-14.
For months, NAA has diligently worked to give its headquarters a makeover that has included numerous renovations to accommodate The Alliance’s best and brightest from around the country.
“We are ready for members of The Alliance to come hang out for the weekend at our headquarters where we have created a home-court advantage for our team,” National Agents Alliance President and CEO Andy Albright said Thursday. “We’ve made major upgrades, opened up more floor space and have spared no expense to make this event the biggest we’ve ever hosted in Burlington. I think our agents are going to be blown away by the upgrades to our facility.”
Pre-event activities include a Lead Certification class hosted by NAA’s Lead Performance Team and a free annuity training seminar with annuity specialist Matthew Rettick. The event officially kicks off on Friday at 1 p.m. and concludes Sunday around 1 p.m. Vendor booths and the NAA store will be open throughout the weekend.
The three-day event will feature The Alliance’s top agents, delivering training and inspirational stories from stage. The weekend will also offer a lecture from Alamance Community College’s Jeff Bright, musical entertainment from The Goads and a keynote address from Andy Albright.
“The weekend promises to be informative, educational, uplifting and fun,” Albright said. “People are going to leave this event with a new focus and we think this event will serve as a springboard to bigger things for our team for the rest of 2013.”
National Agents Alliance, founded in 2002, recently hit two major milestones by surpassing 1 million submitted applications and 100 billion in submitted coverage via its multiple trusted partners like Mutual of Omaha, Foresters, Columbian Financial Group, Monumental Life, Fidelity & Guaranty, Baltimore Life, Kemper Senior Solutions, ING, etc.
