business review: Jump Start for Fall! - 08/28/17 03:36 PM

Jump Start for Fall!
Can you believe that we are almost at the end of August and September is right around the corner? What a great time to reflect back on your year and to celebrate your wins and examine your struggles.
With kids going to school and our focus turning away from summer activities, this is a great time to examine your business and determine if you are on track - or if you need to make some adjustments as you head towards the end of the year.

Are You on Track Financially?

business review: Choosing Your "Theme Word" for 2017 - 12/08/16 03:10 PM

Choosing Your "Theme Word" for 2017
As we edge closer to the New Year it is important to reflect on the year you just had. Were you happy with your production and the client care you were able to give your clients or were you spinning your wheels only to find yourself coming up short in the income generation category?
Often real estate agents feel like a whole year has just passed by so quickly with hardly a moment to stop and assess what is affecting their business.

What was the last thing you bought online? A book? Toner? Shoes?
Chances are if you bought something online that you had not purchased before, you made the decision to purchase based at least partially on the product reviews. When I purchase anything online that I have not purchased before, I certainly check those reviews.

business review: The Quarterly Business Assessment - 04/08/16 02:28 AM

The Quarterly Business Assessment
When was the last time you took a look at the health of your business? As a real estate agent you are a business owner. You owe it to yourself to take a moment every few months to review your business barometer. Now that the first quarter of 2016 is complete, it's time to review how your business is changing – good or bad – and what you are going to do about it.
When I talk to agents about this, they intuitively understand the need for a business review. However, one of two things … (1 comments)
