Stop Running in the Hamster Wheel

Stop Running on the Hamster Wheel!


I have spent the last 3 years in Real Estate and have wasted much of that time allFocus when starting your real estate career over the place and not focusing on one aspect of my business. I do a little here and a little there and in the end, “running on the ha
mster wheel” doesn’t get you anywhere but burnt out and tired! So my current focus is Active Rain blogging and getting my website up (I am listening to all the statistics with the majority of homes sales starting on the Internet) I have hired a Web Designer to keep by focus on learning to blog and get my name out there. I read the featured blogs this morning and today and......



It has been a great morning for me in The Rain. There are days when the featured blogs don’t hit home with me but not today. I think all the bloggers knew just Reading Active Rain Blog postswhatI needed this morning (or I was ready to receive what was out there). I am struggling with the focus aspect of my business and Mike Cooper’s blog this morning Success Leaves Clues hit a home run to the benefits of focus and determination. I feel like the “shiny keys” are my greatest enemy right now. I continue to get all these marketing ideas and need to remind myself of my current path. So here is to focusing on business building and the goals ahead of me! Thank you, Mike for the reminder and positive reinforcement!

Heather, unfortunately it sounds like you've had a fairly frustrating three years.  As you readjust your focus, consider marketing to your sphere of influence.  These are people you like and hopefully like you.  Ask them to refer business to you.  Also, don't forget to talk to someone everyday who might buy or sell real estate. Just by doing these simple things I believe you will see an increase in your business.  All the best!

I too have run this wheel many times. I have been doing what my gut tells me too. I plan my day and follow through. Some days I blog others I may go through my contacts and make calls. What ever I do I make sure it is productive.
