Derek has been featured on numerous podcasts like the Financial Advisor Success Podcast with Michael Kitces, was named to InBusiness Magazine’s 40 under 40 class of 2019 where his business experience and world travels were compared to that of “The World’s Most Interesting Man” (Dos Equis’ ad campaign). He was also featured for the “Know Your Madisonian” Wisconsin State Journal 2017 edition.  Derek has presented to thousands of advisors and personally helped hundreds go virtual.

Derek is also the creator of tribeofluxury.com a financial education blogging site built specifically to market to his ideal clients.

A Note From Our Founder

I transitioned my brick & mortar business, Intrepid Wealth Partners, to a virtual practice in 2013 when the industry barely recognized the  concept. Little did I know that it would be a game changer for me, my family, and my clients. I have had the privilege of working with clients from coast to coast and doing so even while on trips to South Africa, Japan (even on the Bullet Train!), Ireland, Mexico, and so on.

I started blogging in 2016 as one of my primary marketing strategies. Since then my blog, Tribe of Luxury, has materially contributed to acquiring new clients, all over the country, while I spend time with my family, travel, and even while I am sleeping.

Derek was leading the 'virtual advisor' wave before COVID forced everyone to learn it.

Virtual advisor system

"I have known and watched Derek since his earliest days as a financial professional. In my 30 years in the industry I have never seen anyone do what Derek has done... NEVER! Derek has started, changed and grown his operation to a high-level producer, from "scratch", three times! Three!

I am excited to have discussed this system with Derek and to have provided some input along the way as he has developed Conneqtor. I think we all know virtual sales is where financial services need to go as we move further into the 21st Century. Derek provides both the road map towards that destination, as well as "proof-positive" that it works.“

Virtual advisor system

Mike Ruff, CFP, CPA

Virtual advisor system

Derek’s obvious life of exceptional success in financial planning makes the Virtual Advisor System loaded with actionable information. As seen through the filter of 43 years as a CPA and 30 years as a CFP this system is excellent for virtual advisors as well as brick and mortar advisors.

Matt Kaplan, Partner at Standpoint Funds

Virtual advisor system

“At first I was a bit sceptical of the concept of a virtual financial advisor. I figured that it would be a real challenge to get individuals to accept financial advice without meeting with an advisor. After speaking with Derek, and learning more about Conneqtor, I realized I kept getting stuck in the “how things are” vs. “how they should be”. The consumer is already comfortable doing everything from their dating to their banking online, so it is only natural that they are ready to work with advisors in a virtual manner. The beautiful thing about virtual advice is that you will be partnering up with individuals that want to be helped virtually. By simply matching your advice to the needs and desires of your clients, you can create a win/win scenario. The virtual model empowers advisors to be where and what their clients want”

Virtual advisor system

Kristin Stutz, Financial Services Professional

Virtual advisor system

“The strategies you provided go deeper into truly becoming a credible source in the virtual world versus simply having a social presence. While Conneqtor does take diligence and will certainly force many out of their comfort zones (myself included) it has the ability to be a true differentiator for any agent utilizing the system and will set them apart from both the brick and mortar and kitchen table agents. There is no question this is a form of communication clients are hungry for and the impact the Conneqtor has can change the lives of the clients who embrace it as well as the lives of the agents.”

Virtual advisor system

Jessica Durand, M.A. Financial Services Professional

Virtual advisor system

"In my time as a financial professional, I have never encountered a teacher like Derek Notman. Our industry can be so impersonal, so numbers driven. I believe that many of our counterparts leave the business because their work is not life driven. That disconnect can be maddening. One major thing that Derek understands and teaches, is that in order to be a good advisor there is an amount of internal work that needs to happen first. With Connector, I now have specific tools, and specific strategies that align with how I’ve always wanted to do my work - from my heart."

Greg Thomas, Financial Advisor

“I’ve learned a great deal in a short time and believe fully that this approach has the potential to be a “game-changer” in this industry. Not just a game-changer but the absolute future of what we know now to be financial services.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is The Virtual Advisor System™ for?

This system is for financial advisors, registered representatives, and life insurance agents that range from independent RIA’s to IAR’s & B/D affiliations and captive agents who are looking to exponentially increase their income while drastically reducing their overhead by embracing the virtual or semi-virtual model to dominate in the digital world we live in while living the life of their dreams.

Who this system is NOT for?

If you think that clients will never work with and buy from you virtually, even though they buy almost everything else online, then this is not for you. If you expect it will be “easy” to build or transition your business into a virtual powerhouse without putting in real effort, then this is not for you. If you are looking for a band aid as a quick-fix to an already failing business then this is not for you.

Will the System work for my situation?

The System is Agnostic.  It is already being used by everyone from captive life insurance agents at large mutual life insurance companies to fully independent advisors and everyone in between.  You get to learn everything you need and then customize it all based upon your particular situation.  Virtually anyone can embrace the system!

Do I need to go entirely virtual?

No, not at all! This system is customizable and scalable to fit your comfort level and current business model. You can scale it up or down based upon your needs and always make changes in the future as you get more comfortable. If you are unsure, the easy way to transition is to start servicing your existing clients virtually, it is a great way to learn all the nuances of working virtually.

Is this system only for new financial professionals?

Certainly not. I ran a traditional brick & mortar business for 8 years before making the transition to a virtual business.

Do I need to travel to work as a virtual advisor?

No. Although I travel extensively each year for fun, and work while doing it, it does not mean that you must. You can just as easily work from your home, a small office, co-working space, or even a local coffee shop. The real value of this system is that it gives you great flexibility and more time to work with more people. You can get more done in less time. I choose to use my extra time to travel and spend time with my family, all while knowing I can grow and manage my business from anywhere. What you choose to do with your extra time is up to you!

Is it expensive to set up a virtual business?

Although you still need to spend money to set up and run a virtual business it is drastically less than what you currently are or would spend on the traditional model. I have been able to reduce my overhead by over 50% in adopting the virtual business model.

Why is The Virtual Advisor System™ less expensive than other systems and coaching programs?

By embracing a “virtual” mindset, Conneqtor was built using entirely virtual resources, thus the initial and ongoing operating expenses for Conneqtor – The Virtual Advisor System™ are less expensive which we pass on to you through a more competitive price.

Am I being shipped a physical product?

The entire system and course materials are offered as a digital product so you will not receive anything in the mail. Once you enroll you will be given direct, 24/7 access and instructions on how to get started right away.

How quickly can I expect results?

If you work hard, follow the system, and get out of your own way you can see results in as little as 30-60 days.

Is this a coaching program, will I have access to Derek?

I have designed the system to be virtually 100% DIY.  There is a ton of “coaching” in the system but Derek will not be conducting ongoing coaching of advisors.  Derek has put everything you will need to build and run a successful virtual business into this system and will continue to update it with new content and strategies after having tested and prove they work.  Derek will be available via email and involved in the private LinkedIn group to go over anything that comes up as you build your virtual practice.

I am not located in the USA, can I still use your system?

Yes! Although there may be some small tweaks depending on your country, tech, compliance, etc. the system was designed in a way where it can be used in virtually any environment.


HA – Steamboat Springs, CO

“As soon as our first meeting began, I felt at ease and the small list of questions I had were quickly discussed and crossed off. When the meeting was over, I had a better understanding of my financial situation than I ever had before. At the conclusion of our second meeting I knew I wanted you to manage my money. I’ve tried to come up with some constructive criticism, but I can’t think of anything. You always respond to my emails quickly, understand what I’m looking to do with my life and there was a positive connection from my perspective immediately. I felt like I’d known you for years. The process of working with you has been so seamless and smooth.”

MW – San Jose, CA

“We have had a great experience working with Derek virtually. Being able to meet with him virtually has allowed us to keep a
personal feel to our relationship and allowed for us to get to know each other and build a trusting relationship.”

CK – Nashville, TN

“My experience working with you in a virtual manner has been excellent. You use the minimal amount of communication and don’t bombard me with unnecessary stuff to make the process simpler.  I obtain the correct info promptly and in a timely manner to make easy decisions. I appreciate the precise and straightforward communication.”

The digital revolution of the last 20 years has drastically changed so many aspects of our lives. The financial services industry is a bit late to this party but is making up lost time by leaps & bounds. Consumers are demanding a new way of doing business, are you prepared for the future?
Module 1
We aren’t taught to pursue our hopes, dreams, and goals. We are taught to get an education, get a job, save money, and then someday do the things we want to do. Doesn’t this seem backwards? By defining your hopes, dreams, and goals for the future you are creating a real motivator to build a business that can help you achieve anything you desire. If done correctly, defining your hopes, dreams, and goals will help you with everything from your defining your brand and who your ideal client is to your processes and digital marketing messages. DO NOT SKIP OR GO THROUGH THIS MODULE TOO QUICKLY.
Module 2
Although you will be transitioning to a partial or all virtual business model there is still a physical infrastructure needed to maximize your potential as a virtual advisor. You will learn all you need to get the physical aspects of your virtual business in place in this module.
Module 3
Compliance is a very important aspect of the work we do. We must always protect our clients and their data and make sure the work we do satisfies the laws and polices we operate under. Learn what tools, processes, and best practices you can adopt to make sure your virtual business is always in compliance.
Module 4
In order to dominate in a digital world not only do we need to know who our “ideal client” is but where they are so we can market to them. The marketing systems of old no longer work in a digital world, thus it is crucial to learn the digital tactics and strategies needed to market yourself and your services to where people are.
Module 5
Who you work with used to be dependent on your physical location. Not anymore, you now can market to anyone, anywhere, as long as you first define who it is you want to market to. The importance of defining your “ideal client” cannot be overstated. No longer do you need to take a shotgun approach, but now you can take a laser focused one to work with people you truly want to help and enjoy getting along with. With big data at our fingertips we have the power to choose and vet the exact type of people we want to work with.
Module 6
Everything from creating content to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is vitally important in order for you to capture the online audience you are looking to work with. In a world where virtually everything is available online it is important that your digital marketing strategy is not only defined but working in concert with everything else you are doing.
Module 7
In this module we continue to build upon the digital marketing infrastructure you have already put in place. As you will see you will now be able to further leverage the work, engagement, and following you have created to provide more value and opportunities to not only continue to grow your audience but give them the opportunity to flow through your digital marketing funnel to ultimately become clients.
Module 8
Regardless of what we, as consumers, buy we are most comfortable making purchases when we feel the source is trustworthy and that they have been transparent in the sales process. The same holds true for us as virtual advisors. Thus, it is crucial that your digital presence embraces this Model as a way of doing business; everything from marketing to servicing clients.
Module 9
The sales process, if done correctly, is really not all that different whether we are doing it in person or virtually. The virtual sales process is built upon some fundamental sales strategies that have worked for a very long time. By conducting meetings virtually, you have simply changed the medium from a kitchen table to a laptop. Learn my proven 4 meeting process that can be used with virtually any client to sell them virtually any product or service you offer. As a bonus, this module also includes a Mock Client Experience using the Virtual Sales Process so you can see me in action taking a prospect through the entire virtual process.
Module 10
When working virtually it is vitally important that we ensure a great client experience. We should not assume that their perspective will be the same as ours during our meetings and conducting business. The best way to get a prospect or client comfortable working with you in a virtual manner is to make sure you are comfortable.
Module 11
One of the great benefits of running a virtual business is that you no longer have the same needs and responsibilities of a traditional brick & mortar business. Building a virtual support team ensures you can run an efficient and profitable business while reducing your overhead drastically from the old model.
Module 12
Great service is one of the keys to running a successful business. By building a virtual support team and leveraging technology not only can you provide great service but you can excel at it without it becoming a drain on your business.
Module 13
You’ve done it! You have put in the time and effort to create the virtual business of your dreams, congratulations! Review everything you have learned on your virtual journey and see how to set up your “ideal schedule”, one that is mutually beneficial for you and your clients. Done correctly, running a virtual business improves the way of life for all involved.
