Dreams, Visions, Goals, Planning Challenge

We are now entering into 2018 and many are wondering where did 2017 go? Before we get deep into the new year let's take a look at where we are going.

7 Key Steps to Greatness 
With just a few weeks until we cross into 2018, it's time right now to lay the plan so you will start the year on your path to success. A successful career doesn't happen on its own.  It takes planning and following that plan to reach your goal.  You alone are responsible for your future and how you travel your path.  
It's almost impossible to reach a goal without having a clear and concise plan of action. Putting it in writing makes it real and easier to follow. Internalize it, visualize it.
Systems are important and in this day and time, if … (28 comments)

Why Get Your Brokers License?
In many states, there are lower license statuses than having a full broker's license. For instance, in Tennessee, you must have an affiliate brokers license for at least 3 years, take the Broker's Office Management Course and have dozens of additional educational hours to qualify to take the broker's exam. With all that extra work, why should an agent aspire to get a Brokers License? 
It is good to set goals. If you plan to stay in the real estate business this is a natural step to attain and certainly will not hurt you. The education is good … (79 comments)

Can We Will 2016 to Be a Great Year?

I say yes we can.
We can choose the direction and choices we make. We can control how we respond to bad situations, poor results and when we fall short. We can put a smile on our faces and greet people with a friendly greeting.  We can choose to make lemonade out of lemons and even add a pretty straw or fruit umbrella. We can keep our eyes on our goal knowing that bumps in the road may come. We can press on and not be defeated and never say never. We can lift … (28 comments)

It's Not About How Much You Can Earn, It's About Balance

Generally speaking most people will tell you to set your goals high and stretch yourself. If you made X this year surely next year you can make X++.  I say it is not all about the money or even the numbers. I think it is about quality and personal satisfaction and having balance to life.  Making money is fun but is not the answer to a satisfying life.

Money is not always a motivator either. The longer you have been in business world, chances are you are less affected by the almighty … (33 comments)

Readjustment of Work Time and Goals

The March Challenge issued by Grant Schneider gave me cause to stop and think just what I did I last year that I am not be doing this year. I don't consider myself a quitter so when I leave a practice or activity behind it is because it no longer works with my strategy of business.

I am finding it is taking more and more time to channel my business in the direction I want it to go. There are activities I do not enjoy and do not want to do any longer. There are enough challenges in … (45 comments)

Enjoy the Little Rewards Along the Way

A post written by Grant Schneider made me think of a practice I put into play long ago when I got into real estate. Grant's post titled, Persistence with Goals Will Turn Your Dreams Into Reality talks about how you have to stick the plan when working toward your goals. Goals worth having are oftentimes long term goals and take persistence and hard work.
I agree with Grant and he is a terrific business coach. What I learned in my early days of real estate is that you have to track your progress and have small … (26 comments)

My "Me Agreement" for My Business in 2014
There are several areas in my business that need some commitment and resolution for 2014. Systems are working pretty well but there is some fine tuning that is in order to make them run more seamlessly.
All files, photos, important documents are to be stored in the Cloud for easy accessibility. Engage more with social media but look for ways to streamline and to not invest more time. Take some additional NAR classes to add a couple more designations. One in particular I have my eye on is the military relocation course. … (30 comments)

The blog that Kathy Streib wrote makes a very good point about tackling any type of job or task. You need the right equipment/plan, the knowledge to know what to do and then the time and focus to get the job done. Without the Focus you may never see the end result.

I Must Be Crazy, It’s Not About The Money. I sell real estate because I love it and frankly after 32 years I really know what I’m doing. My primary goal is not the amount of money I make but giving great service to my clients. I do not do it solely for the money because my satisfaction comes from knowing that I have done my job well and represented my clients in the very best way possible.
