PRESS RELEASE | Good Life CEO named 2018 Forty Under 40 Winner



Wyomissing, PA – April 13, 2018: Conor Delaney, CEO and Co-Founder of The Good Life Companies, was named one of the winners of the 2018 Forty Under 40 Awards by the Lehigh Valley Business Journal. The award ceremony was held at a special reception on April 10, 2018 at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. The prestigious Forty Under 40 awards program celebrates 40 of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s most accomplished young businessmen and women who have been making headlines in their field. The 2018 winners were assessed and selected for their commitment to business growth, professional excellence and the community.

“It is an honor to be selected as a member of the 2018 class of Lehigh Valley Business’ Forty Under 40. When we started The Good Life Companies, my intention was to create a business that could serve middle America, anywhere across the country. Like many other businesses in the country, our executive team prides ourselves on bringing a blue-collar, Philadelphia-style work ethic to our business every day. Being selected for this award is a culmination of that culture we have strived to create and the difference we have attempted to make in communities regionally as well as across the US,” said Delaney.

Delaney founded The Good Life Companies in 2012 after seeing a gap in the marketplace for successful advisors wanting a turn-key solution to support their independent financial advisory practice. Delaney, along with his partner Courtnie Nein, began developing procedures, products and support which became Good Life’s foundation. Today, the Good Life Companies is comprised of five total entities. There is a fixed insurance agency, Good Life Insurance Associates, Good Life Financial Advisors, financial
planning for families and individuals around the country, Good Life Advisor Systems, a service organization catered toward transitioning and supporting independent financial advisors, Good Life Advisors, a Registered Investment Advisor, and Good Life Fitness Institute which takes an educational approach to fitness, nutrition and overall health and wellness.

The Good Life Companies’ mission is to give their national network of advisors and their clients access to independent financial advice. They specialize in Registered Investment Advisory services and full service support for independent advisors across the country. Their goal is to build a long-term relationship as their trusted and knowledgeable partner.

TODD ESH JOINS GOOD LIFE ADVISORS

WYOMISSING, PA — March 22, 2018 — Good Life announces a new partnership with Todd Esh as the Vice President and Managing Director of Good Life Companies, Midwest Region.

“I have known Todd and worked side by side with him during my time in management at our last broker-dealer,” said Conor Delaney, Founder and CEO at Good Life. “I have always found Todd’s knowledge, passion, and desire to bring independent advice to the market place to be inspiring. Fortunately, Todd came to the same conclusion we did which is that Good Life’s structure lends itself best to help advisors achieve the goal of going independent. Todd will be a tremendous resource for us in the Midwest but he will also be an integral part of the growth of our national footprint. I am excited to work side by side with Todd again and cannot wait to see how his success translates to our company’s growth.”

Mr. Esh has over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. He has spent time as a financial advisor, a field leader and a home office employee on leadership teams specializing in recruiting and business development. To reach Todd Esh, please call (434) 258-2494 or email Todd.Esh@GoodLifeFA.com.

“I am excited to be joining Good Life Companies and focusing on growing the footprint not only here in the Midwest but nationwide. Good Life Companies are much more than just an OSJ. That model doesn’t work in the long-term. Independent advisors want more than just compliance supervision. They want service and support. They want practice development. They want the tools, resources and back office to help them run their practice as efficiently and economically as possible. Good Life Companies accomplishes all of that and more. Our goal at Good Life Companies is to make sure we educate those advisors that feel stuck at wirehouses and employee firms, and even other independent firms, to let them know that there is a better alternative,” said Mr. Esh.

About Good Life Companies

To stand out in an industry that has been largely commoditized, Good Life needs to be different to be great. Sometimes being different is not just about being focused on the financial services offered to clients or advisors, but it is about building an ecosystem and community that improves lives. The Good Life culture is centered around a vibrant, upbeat work environment where employees are encouraged to think freely, dress for their day, all while having a strong focus on overall financial health and physical wellness.

The Good Life Companies Share the Effects of Trump Tax Cuts

Wyomissing, Pennsylvania – February 5, 2018 – Recent changes in the U.S. tax law are not only benefiting employees of large companies, smaller companies such as The Good Life Companies are sharing the tax cut windfall with employees with bonuses up to $1,000.

Because of President Trump’s tax cuts, The Good Life Companies headquartered in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania are both yielding savings as well as seeing optimism in forecasts for the growth of the organization. This will enable the company to pass rewards to more than 30 full time employees.

Additionally, The Good Life Companies also plans to increase budgetary commitments towards community projects and charitable donations. They are looking to create dozens of new jobs to enhance their offering, support their robust technology projects, and increase client service.

“I got into this business at a time when our regulations were increasing which was driving prices higher. Moreover, we were seeing more of our dollars that were needed to be redeployed back into business development and to increase employee morale, being unnecessarily spent on taxes. We are proud of our employees, proud to give back more to them, and proud to continue to expand in our local marketplace and throughout the United States,” said Conor Delaney, CEO, The Good Life Companies.

The Good Life Companies have also sparked their local economy by purchasing and renovating a 24,000-square foot commercial property in Cumru Township, Pennsylvania. The renovation has provided over $2,500,000 in revenue to local companies and employment for 100 people. The result will give Good Life and its local partners more than 100 white-collar jobs in the greater Berks County region.

The Good Life Companies is a multi-faceted organization and is comprised of four total entities. The Good Life Companies include a service company catered toward transitioning and servicing financial advisors to an independent channel, a full-serviced fixed general insurance agency, a Registered Investment Advisor and a retail financial planning practicing servicing the needs of retail clients around the country. The Good Life Companies is part of a fast-growing network of financial professionals who have made the decisions to work as independent financial advisors.

Good Life Financial Advisors, the first Good Life Companies entity, was founded in 2012 by Conor Delaney and Courtnie Nein after seeing gaps in the marketplace for successful advisors that wanted a turn-key solution to support their independent financial advisory practice.
