Let's Just Keep It Real!

By
Education & Training with REALTOR & CEO The 3B Method Seminars

 

OK - so your year is not the best ever...Or maybe, you are having a record breaking year!

Let's be honest and let's let out that wee little secret that a few of you already know.

 

The next seminar I do I am going to put a $1.00 Bill under every seat. I will tell everyone to get up, look under the seat and see what they have. Of course, they will all have a $1.00 bill and maybe someone will have a $10.00 bill and just maybe someone a $100.00 BILL!!!

As the audience is excited in everyone finding money and getting to put a dollar in thier pocket I will then

proceed to tell them that the fact of the matter is this:

You have to get off your A** to earn a dollar!

Let's Just Keep it Real!

 

I recently saw this in a very stupid movie but this one scene was a point I laughed my butt off at!

Isn't that the most difficult part in our business? It really is.

As for your next seminar, you will have a lot of fun with the dollar bills under the table.

Yes, this market is no 'Field of Dreams.'  We can't wait for the business to come, we have to go find it.

LIz - I recall back in the real estate recession of the early 1990s, we had a lot of agents who became beaten down by the market, so to speak!  The ones who ended up lasting in the business, were the ones who created action plans, or goals for working their way out of it!  And yes, they had the gift of getting off their A**es!

I was fortunate enough to have the desk space next to one of the most motivated agents; and would always peek at her current 10 goals which she posted on her wall.  I do remember thinking at times her goals were a little unrealistic or lofty.  Especially, on one such list, where her #1 goal was listed as, "Get The Richest Man in Baghdad". . .But then she explained it was a book, not the man!

Liz, this one really did make me laugh out loud :)  I wonder if my manager could use this at our next sales meeting when agents are complaining about the market.

Myrl:I love it! You shared great words of wisdom in your entire response! I really wish more agents would write goals and really take that next step to look at them daily! Thanks for stopping by and you just gave me another idea for my next blog! THANKS!

Lisa: Of course you can pass this to your manager to share...I have one request with that though...Please have them share my name for visibility and have them contact me to speak on the Monday after the Carolina Panthers will be playing the Saints! I spoke in downtown New Orleans last year after the game and it was one of the best times I have ever had! The Panthers won and I think there was less than a 25 Panther fans there! BUT I WAS ONE and we WON!

WOW - I love some New Orleans people! oh and by the way - glad you got a laugh!
