Innovate or Bust?
By: Gloria Schmitt
 
Today my youngest asked me to proof read her paper on how the Renaissance influenced today’s society and it got me thinking about my own company and how quickly our industry is changing.  What influences or influencers are forcing us to make changes to ensure we don’t become obsolete?  Is your business protected from the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
With each innovation brings an opportunity for change and advancement; if we don’t advance, we inevitably cease to exist.   Companies like Blockbuster, Toys R Us, Borders and Sears have certainly demonstrated that fact. 
 
Is your business model supporting today’s consumer?  More … (1 comments)

Lessons Learned from Willy Loman
By Gloria Schmitt
Last evening as I was reviewing, and yes already amending, my 2018 annual, monthly and weekly goals, my youngest child came into my office and asked if I would mind proofreading the essay she had just completed for her winter college session in honor’s English.   Without hesitation, I said with pleasure.    Looking down at her paper and seeing only the title itself, made me smile.   She seemed annoyed and asked; why are you smiling? It is a sad story and you haven’t even read it yet.    I explained to her that I myself had read … (4 comments)

Today I Lost a Friend
By Gloria Schmitt
 
Today I learned that a good friend had passed away yesterday.   I had just spoken to his family days ago to find out how he was feeling as he was diagnosed with stage four cancer six months earlier.   His son (my oldest son’s best friend) said they had prepared him for at home hospice and that the doctors had given him 6-8 weeks but that he was resting comfortably.   Three days later he was gone.    As you could expect, my family and I did not take the news well.   John was a kind, caring, generous … (1 comments)

Does Always Being Busy, Make you Better?
By: Dylan Bugallo
 
My fellow executive team members and I are currently reading a very uplifting and inspirational book. The book is called “You are a Badass” written by Jen Sincero. Not only does the book motivate you to be the most “Badass” version of yourself, it also ignites a sense of confidence within yourself that you may not have felt before.
Throughout the book there were many quotes from the author that caught my attention; however there was one that especially stood out in particular. “Stop talking about how busy you are. Focus on … (1 comments)

What Kind of Impression Have You Left After the Deal Has Closed; Did You Build a Lasting Relationship?
By Gloria Schmitt
 
Recently I taught a class to both newly licensed, as well as, experienced associates in my market center entitled going from Chaos to Productivity.   While interacting and listening to the associates during the class, it struck me that as salespeople we are very passionate about exceeding our client’s expectations by continually putting the customer first and coming from a place of contribution; always operating with honesty and integrity, demonstrating effective communication and coordination throughout the entire process.    With that being said, we … (0 comments)

Each morning I begin my day at 5AM; I get out of bed, say a quick affirmation and get myself ready for at least an hour long commute to the office.   Recently, colleagues, friends and family have all questioned why I choose to spend generally two and half hours every day in my car commuting when I can just as easily find a job locally.  My answer is quite simple – I love the company and the people I work alongside but most importantly, I love the incredible … (2 comments)

Do You Wake Up Each Day With Your End Goal in Mind?

Last week I attended a workshop at Keller Williams Realty Landmark hosted by a top national speaker, Naeem Mahmood, on behalf of the Tony Robbins Peak Performance Workshop.   The intent of the workshop was to help us establish routines, develop a positive “unstoppable” mindset and to prepare us physically, mentally and emotionally in order to maximize our outcome and to attain our goals.   If I’m going to be completely honest, my original thought was here we go again, another motivation speaker who’s going to tell … (0 comments)
