Hi, I’m Derrick Kinney.

I’m on a mission to help financial advisors achieve lasting personal and financial success. I’ve been where you are and will guide you to where you want to be.

❌ I’m not: the “rah rah” 20-something Instagram influencer in skinny jeans who’s flat broke with not an ounce of common sense or business experience!

✅ I am: a bestselling author and top-rated podcast host with a few gray hairs and lots of real-life money and business success. 

✅ CNBC, FOX News, CNN, FOX Business, PBS and the Wall Street Journal have called on me for easy-to-understand money and business advice. 

✅ Started a financial planning business from scratch, grew it, acquired others, and recently exited for a record deal.

✅ Former financial advisor who has helped thousands of clients achieve their financial goals. Forbes named me one of the top financial advisors in the country.

✅ Trusted voice on business & money.

Now, I’ve created a keynote to help your financial advisors reach their dreams and achieve success in a fraction of the time.


"Always great stuff Derrick. Appreciate it my friend."

My totally unlikely story to success

After reaching the point of total frustration and feeling trapped in a dead-end job, I decided to take a risk, bet on myself, and launch my own business. There I was, a 26-year-old kid offering to manage people’s money for them. 

For years, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking, who would invest money with a young guy like me? I was just another financial advisor. There was nothing that set me apart. 

Until one day, an amazing thing happened.

My phone began to ring. My calendar booked up. My business began booming

People began to say to me, “Derrick, we want to work with you, because of the work you do in the community.”  

Pause for a sec. It was not the car I drove, the house I lived in, or the people I knew that made clients want to work with me. It was the impact my business was having on the local community

Today, I call it your “Generosity Purpose.”  

It grew my financial planning business into one of the top in the nation. And today, the Generosity Purpose is helping countless financial advisors across the country crush their sales goals and build a base of loyal, buying customers. 

And it will grow your advisory business too.


Here’s my Generosity Purpose👇

I’m passionate about investing in the lives of young people and helping them reach their full potential. Plus I’m a big fan of supporting local education and recognizing outstanding teachers and students. Among our favorite causes to support, I enjoy sponsoring the Student of the Month and Teacher of the Month program at local high schools to give them the recognition they deserve.

My wife and I also love hosting a weekly “Family Dinner” for young adults in our area (with free food of course!) Investing in young people and supporting local education pays the highest dividends.

The “Generosity Purpose” that we will custom-tailor for you will be the doorway to begin experiencing more meaning in your life (and a lot more money too!)
