Let me preface this post by saying that not only am I going to put on my“bulletproof vest” but I’ll be wearing a “bulletproof helmet” with a face shield. When I finish this post, I’ll take refuge in a “safehouse” until the dust settles!!!
We are in an industry that is dominated by females. (Wait, I’m fastening that vest now!) Many of those females are rarely engaged in any confrontational situations that they cannot handle on their own, but there are those who have drama about commission issues, especially.
Real estate is a business, and when business decisions need to be made, females need to think like a man. O.K., I said it, and I honestly believe it. Females who can and do think like a man are a notch above everyone.
Think about all of the CEO’s in large corporations. Do you think for a moment that they make decisions that are full of emotion? Do you think they are unsure about their thoughts and hesitate about vocalizing because of what others will think? Business is business...
Much of the nonsense that occurs between agents is a result of emotional females attempting to think like a man but doing it very poorly. I love doing business with males and females who think as men think. Transactions are never jeopardized because of them. Everyone has his/her role and the job gets done because they think properly without any emotion.
When a decision needs to be made, it’s made and done, and on to the next step. No one hesitates; or dwells on it; or questions their decision; or changes their mind about an issue. It’s done! Onward and upward! Females in business need to think like a man, especially females in a management position.
I’ve never worked for a female broker/owner. I interviewed with one once, and that female actually told me she would not hire me!! It made me smile, and I asked why not. Her answer was that she was afraid no one in her office would listen to her if she hired me. I thought that was the greatest compliment.
She wouldn’t hire me because I think like a man is what she was saying. Think about the last "problem deal" you had. Maybe it was with a man who thinks as a woman thinks! That happens, too!
Those are my thoughts for the moment….my ride to the “safehouse” is here….see ya later!!!
