Sometimes the climb to the top is fraught with peril, and it may require helping hands to play it safe.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

The ladder to success by Richard WeisserWe all want to ascend in the ranks of our respective professions. It is, after all, the reason that we continue to read and to study about new ways of conducting business in a technological age.

But that's not to say that there will not be any bumps in the road ahead. Nor does it suggest that risks should not be undertaken.

There is rarely a golden staircase that will take you to the pinnacle of achievement, More often than not, it is metaphorically closer to a rickety ladder propped precariously against a wall.

And while one can go it alone, how much better would it be to have the ladder stabilized with the helpful hands of others that are willing to participate in our endeavor to climb to the top?

I'm just saying.

I agree. No one every gets to the top alone. Most people have dozens of others that have helped them achieve greatness.

Richard, Being a fulltime realtor is kind of like a roller coaster ride, up and down, all around and FAST! I agree with what you're just saying, but how to get help is another story! Your local competitors (and even coworkers) aren't really rooting for your success, but their own.... very competitive!

I will hold your ladder if you hold mine!  Kidding aside, I think you are right.  Having support makes it easier.

One needs to build a team of real estate professionals to help get to the top. Safety is in numbers and one is only one phone call away from getting the answers.

I'm already not a big fan of ladders, so for me, the helping hands to steady it sounds very nice.

Richard:  No Top Producer does it all themselves.  It takes dedication and hard work of a team, informal or not, to get you there.
