Winter Olympics, Mindset and Preparation- An ActiveRain Challenge

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

This has been a cold winter with snow, ice and single digit temperatures sweeping the country. The flu bug has bitten but even that is not enough to take down true Real Estate Olympians.


The Winter Olympics is the showcase of the best athletes in the world. They have been practicing, working long hours, honing their skills and pushing their limits. The coaches have been guiding, directing and expecting great results. The results will soon be known.

In the real estate market, Spring is said to be the best time of the year for sales. In some ways that is the yearly Real Estate Olympics. It is just a few weeks away and how you fair depends on the preparations you are doing now. Are your systems working at top capacity? Are all team members united and pulling together? Are you getting in shape and formulating new strategies to capture the business? 

Like Olympians, mindset and preparations start long before the actual competition. Share what you have been doing to get ready for your busiest time of the year. Tell about how you stay focused and the extra effort you put into making sure you'll reap great benefits. Describe when your busy time starts and how you will be mentally prepared, physically ready and skillfully poised to take on the business. Is there a new strategy you will be using this year? Without giving away any top secrets give us some of the details. 

Those that accept this challenge and write a post of at least 300 words on the subject will be rewarded an extra 1500 bonus points. To qualify post a link to your entry post in the comment section below before midnight, Pacific time, February 28.
