"If You're Not Having Fun Selling Real Estate..."

Education & Training with Sell with Soul


You should have seen me on Saturday afternoon. I (being the master webgoddess that I've become) spent much of the afternoon creating the web page where my BRAND NEW BOOK would be featured. When I clicked "Publish" on my handy-dandy Adobe Contribute screen and saw my newest pride & joy go live for all the world to see... well, it was a fine moment indeed.

The name of the BRAND NEW BOOK is "If You're Not Having Fun Selling Real Estate, You're Not Doing it Right!" Kind of an optimistic title in today's real estate environment, eh? But you know what? Even in a recession, you gotta have fun if you're going to succeed in a tough business. Or, shoot, especially in a recession, you better enjoy what you're doing if you're going to succeed!

So, what's all this "fun" I think you should be having? And how do I propose you have it?

Well, my email signature line (borrowed from Pearl S. Buck) says it best: "The Secret of Joy in Work is one word - Excellence. To do something well is to enjoy it." That's what the book is about. Becoming an exceptional real estate agent who enjoys the heck out of her (or his) career because she knows she's the best thing that could ever happen to her clients

That's fun.

The "real" book won't go to press until later this year, but the downloadable ebook is available now on the above-mentioned web page I spent all Saturday creating. If you wanna buy it, here's the link: www.sellwithsoul.com/sws-sequel.html. It's $11.95.

If you love the book and want to tell me all about it, you might just find your comments included in the "reviews" section of the final print version. Wouldn't that be cool?

Thanks for all your support... and go have some FUN today!

If you are not a ferocious, passionate Realtor, and look forward to getting to work each day, time to retool, re-educate for a new endeavor or profession. Good post!

Hi Jennifer!  as I type I am reading your magnet "the more fun you have selling real estate, the more real estate you will sell"

So true!  Best wishes for the new book, I am sure it is as wonderful and down to earth as your previous one!

It's a catchey title. It caught my eye anyway. And I would be interested in what the book says but think I will check out the blogs first. Hope your sales skyrocket.

I believe that if your work is drudgery, you are not being blessed by God... better get some JOY into it!!!

It is pitiful to see someone who does NOT enjoy thier work...they just trudge on day by day... no smile...nothing...and it is so sad....

You mentioned using Adobe Contribute to upload your blog. I have been desperately looking for the "access point" used by Adobe Contribute to upload my blogs to ActiveRain. Am I missing something?

I stopped using Contribute about 8 months ago, but I never used it with my blog... just with my website. Sorry I can't help you there!
