But Seriously, What More Do You Want to Know About Me?
A big part of who I am is all about authenticity. I'm not out to make myself look or sound or be something more than what you'd get if you met me in person at an open house or popped in my office with a quick question.
I am passionate about ideas and the execution of ideas to productive ends. I love helping people find simple ways to fine-tune their activities to maximize results. So much of real estate sales and brokerage can be a humongous time suck - but if you've got a good coach or a mentor looking out for your best interests and your bottom line - this can be one of the most lucrative and flexible careers on the planet.
I've done an extensive amount of public speaking in my roles as a trainer, coach, managing broker, MLS Board Member, Toastmaster, and all-around trends and technology evangelist. I've spoken to groups of 10 to 200-plus and am amazed at how energized and fully alive I feel following each presentation - kind of weird when you think that most folks fear public speaking more than death...
In my time away from the office, I love to fly-fish and enjoy living year round in our little log home up the Poudre Canyon. Pat and I travel often and if we could travel more, we would. I am an avid reader (mostly non-fiction) but don't hesitate to sink my teeth into a good Michael Connelly novel, and work out my love of carpentry by doing remodeling and furniture building.
As mentioned above, I enjoy teaching, coaching, and sharing information. I have an eclectic business background which informs my management style. Here are a few of the classes and talks I've done for agents, brokers, and affiliates in the past:
Using Outlook to Organize EVERYTHING
Quantum Leap! What Would You Do If You Knew You Would Succeed?
Business Planning and Planning for Business
Harness Your Energy!
Integrity Selling and Behavior Styles
Overcoming Your Belief Boundaries
I've attended hundreds of hours of conferences and read thousands of pages of business, leadership and performance writing.
