joeann fossland: Surprising Habits To Boost Productivity! - 07/09/14 10:42 AM
In 2004, Arianna Huffington woke up on her office floor in a pool of blood. She'd been working 16 hours days and nodded off, fracturing her cheek and injuring eye on the corner of her desk as she fell. It was her wake up call!
Thankfully, our society has been shifting away from idolizing the workaholics to realizing there is more to success than power and money. However, many of us are still trying to be the Superwoman or Superman doing it all!
The fact is busy doesn't automatically equate to productive! Even high levels of production without self-care leaves us tottering on … (14 comments)

joeann fossland: Time To Start Spring Cleaning??? Start With Yourself!!! - 03/10/14 10:54 AM
Want to be a Magnet and Attract Money and Clients?
 
 
Clean up your act!
I mean this literally and figuratively. When we are operating with many incomplete tasks, projects and goals, in clutter and chaos, we don’t have the focus, good execution or results. As a coach, I know that often, it isn’t about doing more, but doing things more effectively. In many cases, you can actually do less and be more successful because you have clarity and energy, but key to this is getting the things that don’t support you out of the way so you can be the best … (3 comments)

joeann fossland: Outside My Comfort Zone...On The Road - 09/20/13 04:10 AM
In the last month, I have spent 3 weeks on the road and travelled to 5 countries and Florida!
I was privileged to be invited to speak at the Florida REALTORS State Convention this year, and I was so impressed with their commitment to their agents and the tools they have made available. There were 1200 REALTORS in attendance, soaking up the education and expo! It was nice to hear about the market strength there after these past tough years. It is a testimony to the fact that there are opportunities in all markets and flexibility and creativity are hallmarks of the basic tools … (1 comments)

joeann fossland: Personal Effectiveness Tip for being grounded! - 09/18/13 02:33 AM
 
 
I often use this exercise before I speak at an engagement or teach a class. It works well, anytime you need your right and left brain to work together (which, I guess, is really most of the time!) A great grounding exercise to use when you feel really stressed… breathing can do wonders for us! 12 Great Reasons To Do Alternate Nostril Breathing Today!

joeann fossland: Burned Out??? - 06/27/13 10:16 AM
As the real estate markets have heated up, most people I am talking to are busy, busy, busy. Lots of folks I talk to are tired. One of the foundations for being wildly productive is having the physical wherewithal to focus and be your best. Taking the time to take care of you can't be left to chance or something that happens after you've taken care of everyone else. Your own wellbeing has to be a priority.
  After all, you car won't take you far if you don't have gas in the gas tank!   My question today is what are … (4 comments)

joeann fossland: Do They Like You? Tell the World! - 06/11/13 03:54 AM
Build your business and your credibility with good testimonials! 
 
Testimonials from clients are one of the best ways for you to communicate your value. A third party endorsement always carries more weight and just is nicer than you bragging about your accomplishments (even if they are noteworthy!). A recent study showed only 14% of consumers trusted advertising, while 86% trusted   recommendations from friends. Social media has expanded this greatly. The Gen X and Gen Y clients are influenced by friends enormously.  Testimonials from people they know give you the instant credibility and trust! According to the 2012 Home Buyer and Seller Profile from NAR, over … (2 comments)

joeann fossland: Are You Going Through Change? - 06/08/13 02:33 AM
Seems like we ALWAYS are, doesn't it? And, yet, I find most people have some fear and trepidation around change.
I found this quote many years ago and have shared it often, because I find people can relate and resonate when thinking of it from this perspective.
What I like best is that you have already let go of lots of trapezes and flown to the next...and it was always there for you!!!
Happy Change!
Fear of Transformation

joeann fossland: Will Today be the Best Day of your Life? - 06/06/13 04:34 AM
Did you know it could be, even if you don't have amazing plans for it right now?
If you knew it was going to be...how would you be feeling?
Would you have awakened today, excited with plans and expectations? Would you be looking for the evidence of today's perfection?
Or, are you already thinking...no, it can't be today! Rather, it is some mythical day.... in the past or future?
Maybe you are even thinking of reasons why today won't be that day? Thinking about the things lacking that would have today come up short!  Discounting the possibility that this day could hold!

joeann fossland: The Power of Visualization - 05/31/13 05:48 AM
Knowing what you want... really having a clear picture of what you want is the first and most important step to getting what you want. We often think it is all the planning and actions and hard work, but I am learning to trust myself and the universe and let things unfold, instead of trying to force it. This is, of course, fairly difficult for a woman who has been a very successful control freak most of her life....
However, the more I learn and evolve, and the less I am attracted to hard work... I am learning the lessons of how to … (2 comments)

joeann fossland: Would you rather be Right or Happy? - 05/30/13 06:07 AM
 
   When I ask people this question they usually say ,"Well, BOTH, of course!!!!"   I still vividly remember 30+ years ago when I was in a self improvement seminar and the presenter was talking with a man about some issues that he had with his mother. He and his mother had stopped speaking to each other. The trainer asked the man if he would rather be right or have a mother. BANGO!!!!! I immediately thought about my relationship with my previous two husbands…For me, it had been all about being right and I lost both relationships. I was ready … (26 comments)

joeann fossland: Maybe You Should Procrastinate More Often! - 05/24/13 08:53 AM
Procrastination? Or More, Harder, Faster?
Which option do you think you should choose?
The conventional wisdom purveyors tell us being in action is best the answer to creating results. They say procrastination is a BAD thing! Under many circumstances, that is true -- however, there are times when procrastination is the better tactic. I know too many tired people who are trying to increase their business doing more, by working harder and trying to outwit the time they have by multitasking! They don't work at peak proficiency or with focus… they are just doing everything that gets tossed at them trying … (5 comments)

joeann fossland: What's Culture got to do with it? - 06/09/12 05:49 AM
The Culture of Your Business
One of the foundational parts of the business planning process is the creation of the core values you will honor in running your business. At a recent coach's conference, Robbe Richman, of Zappos Insights, heightened my awareness by offering a free book called 2011 Culture Book.

There are wonderful examples with employees sharing around the 10 Family Core Values of Zappos:
#1 Deliver WOW Services#2 Embrace and Drive Change#3 Create Fun & a Little Weirdness# 4 Be Adventerous & Open-Minded#5 Pursue Growth & Learning#6 Build Opoen, Honest Relationships with Communication#7 Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit#8 … (0 comments)

joeann fossland: 2011 December Blogging Challenge:Make This December The BEST Month of Your Life!!! - 12/03/11 08:02 AM
I have started December by PLANNING What I want in 2012!
I've shared with you often that I believe visualization is the first step to getting what you want. The most successful people indicate they spend a little time (and 5 or 10 minutes IS enough!) each day visualizing their perfect outcomes. When you do this, you are programming your subconscious mind to look for the synchronicities and opportunities to take you closer to your vision. For me, it's worked in many little ways...just visualizing before a speech or class that people were happy and got value or visualizing my day as wonderful … (4 comments)

joeann fossland: How To Get The Most Out of The NAR Convention 2011 - 11/08/11 12:20 PM
The Fun and Excitement are about to begin in Anaheim as 20,000 real estate professionals converge for the annual convention!
This will be a week for me to see friends, old and new! It'll be time to network, learn, laugh and look at all the new tech stuff at the meetings and the EXPO. I have attended every Convention since 1988 and it is one of the highlights of my year. I find it helps me understanding the BIG picture and get a chance to hear from people what IS working.
Here are a some tips that have helped me and … (4 comments)

joeann fossland: I Need A Volunteer! - 11/01/11 03:55 PM
When did we stop volunteering?
I saw an extraordinary interlude last week when I visited St Paul’s School for Girls for high school reunion. One of the wonderful activities they planned for our Class of ‘66 was to pair each of us with someone from the 5th grade. The 5th graders wrote us a letter a couple of weeks before the Alumnae Weekend and then we met with them briefly on our school visit. What fun to compare notes! Each 5th grader has their own email address through the school and I am continuing to correspond with my buddy, Emmy Shields, … (5 comments)

joeann fossland: Time Traveling! - 10/19/11 12:04 PM
Going Back in Time!
Last week, I went to my 45th High School Reunion at St. Paul’s School for Girls in Baltimore. I realize now that I was clearly privileged to get the opportunity to attend this school where their mission is: St. Paul's School for Girls educates the minds and hearts of girls in a supportive and intellectually challenging community that encourages respect, integrity, creativity, and spiritual growth, preparing them as independent and confident young women to embrace the extraordinary opportunities of our complex world.
What a cool example of a great Mission Statement (HINT, HINT for those of you working on your … (2 comments)

joeann fossland: Embracing Change!!!!! - 04/27/11 02:49 AM
 “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” ~ Mary Oliver
 
We are moving this week from a house where we have lived for 28 years! My husband, Bub, is not a happy camper! Change is not a word that makes him smile. EVER! But he is coming around (after 2 months of discussions) because the outcome is really pretty wonderful.
Here’s our new view that backs 500 acres of State Park and State Land! Bub and I had a dream for retirement. We own 40 acres, that we have paid off … (6 comments)

joeann fossland: Taking Care of Each Other! - 10/10/10 10:28 AM
“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead
Think about this....
"Coma…a medically induced coma…  Pat was in a coma… Put yourself in Pat’s Place… You are Pat.
You fall.  You are paralyzed, lying on the floor all night  until being found by your neighbor’s son who has come to walk your Labrador Retriever.
At the hospital, a coma is medically induced.  The coma continues for over a month.  It is impossible for  you to do anything…  make decisions, conduct business, pay bills and … (19 comments)
