If you're a member of a networking organization, chances are that there is a wonderful opportunity for you to significantly raise your visibility in the group, and to become known, liked and trusted. And chances are that you haven't yet taken advantage of this opportunity. That opportunity is the "Hi, My Name Is..." speech - the five or 10 minutes that each of us are granted upon enrollment in most organizations we join to address the group, introduce ourselves and explain our business in detail. Although most groups offer these opportunities to their members, too many of us don't take advantage of them, (4 comments)

I Hate Potential - 04/19/08 04:36 PM
Potential by very definition is ability that is untapped and unused. How sad is that? We have God-given ability and talent that is wasted each and every day. I, for one, am all about seeing myself and those around me realize and live up to everything that God has intended for them to be. I don't want an inch more and nor a millimeter less.We are constantly limiting ourselves to what we think can be done. Ask anyone who has served our county in the Special Forces, or someone who just finished their first marathon, or the rookie salesperson who just (4 comments)
Be fearless - ask for the order - 04/18/08 09:10 AM
Do you struggle with generating enough leads? How about key listing or showing appointments? Conversion rates? Closing on contracts? As the public has accepted the reality that market has grown increasingly negative, the sales skills of the pros have become more and more in demand. Strong negotiating and closing skills are ever important in today's market climate. No longer can we simply make our clients feel "warm and fuzzy" about the experience. Character must be saddled with competence. As the DNA agent dies (those who did deals solely with those related to them), the pros gain market share. The foundations of fortunes (8 comments)

It is with this in mind that I offer you 25 of the best kept secrets of the industry's elite. 1. To win in real estate you must actively decide (9 comments)
I had one of those "teaching moments" with my middle son last night. Cody is a very bright 10 year old who, through a series of unfortunate circumstances developed autism when he was younger. Through dedication, hard work, and no short measure of God's providence he has recovered to about 90%. His only remaining quirk is his compulsiveness which is rooted in his emotional swings. He was ranting about it being his turn to do the dinner dishes and I used the opportunity to Carpe diem (seize the day). I shared with him one of the greatest lessons in life - (4 comments)
