MY BROKER SUCKS! - PART 1 OF 3
My broker sucks, and I can give you several reasons why.
First, she's not like me at all! She doesn't understand that just because it works for her, that doesn't mean that it will work for me! Who does she think she is? Just because she's been in the business for over 20 years doesn't mean that she knows what's best for me. Humph. The NERVE!
And some of the stuff she wants me to do from our coaching sessions! Good grief. I don't even have time to sleep for goodness sake! She is telling me that 20% of what I do will bring me 80% of my business. In this market that just doesn't sound correct. And on top of that, there are client phone calls, calls to other agents to follow-up on showings or listings, emails and community notices for the neighborhood to my A-List, and BLOGGING for goodness sake! When am I going to find time to all of this, and take care of my clients and listings?
And, Women's Council and Chamber of Commerce meetings and events don't count in my 60-80 hour per week time commitment? Who is she kidding? Hey, I'm just an ordinary guy, not SUPERMAN!
To be perfectly honest, I was in a bit of a slump over the past few months. And, yes, everything was NOT MY FAULT! I was really, really good at rationalizing everything that I was doing, and justifying everything that I wasn't doing. So guess what, my broker decided that what I needed was some 1 on 1 coaching!
Well, I could say that I dug my heels in and said NO WAY! However, my broker suggested initially that I start doing some daily reading and journaling. Yeah, like that's going to help. Well, the short version is that she suggested a good book for me to read. Reading this book challenged me to reflect on some things, especially my ATTITUDE, and that got me moving in a different direction.
