Don’t Fall Into Holiday Mode — There are Opportunities Galore at this Time of Year! - 11/29/10 02:44 PM
DON'T FALL INTO "HOLIDAY MODE" — THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES GALORE AT THIS TIME OF YEAR! Every year in mid-November I hear the same complaint from agents. They come to me and say: “Denise, everything is slowing down. I feel like there’s no point to doing anything right now. So I think I’ll just ramp things down and plan next year.” Wrong! While it’s a good idea to plan next year, it is a very BAD idea to slow your business down to a crawl just because we’ve entered the holiday season. If you’ve been enticed to put in less effort just because (4 comments)

Agents who get the business do come prepared with knowledge of the market, a proper introduction of who they are, and an awareness of what the client wants and needs and how they can meet those needs. Don’t wait for the client (0 comments)
Out of the Jungle and Into the Light! - 11/19/10 12:21 PM
OUT OF THE JUNGLE AND INTO THE LIGHT! There’s no doubt that the past 2 years have taken a toll on agents. Some of you are worn and torn, and really tired. Some of you are exhausted. It’s been really tough. It’s been harder than it’s ever, ever been. For some of you, you probably feel like you’ve been totally lost in a deep, deep jungle. Some of you have lost your confidence. Some of you may have a depleted bank account. More of you have lost your morale. You know what, though? You may have felt completely lost, but you’re actually still here. (0 comments)

CLUB ZEBRA: AN ALL-INCLUSIVE SOLUTION After many years of helping our clients to brand themselves, I can safely say that I’ve pretty much seen it all.
