It's time for a progress report. How am I doing?

Well, Februray is coming to a close, and I'm still learning. I've attended my KW classes, started with CAMP 4-4-3 and started Productivity Coaching. I have newbie Board training coming soon (takes all day!!). UGH!

My big question, where am I? I'm in limbo! I want to start, but there's so many places to go. I've gotten appointments with 13 Asset management companies for BPO's. I've got my letter to expired listings ready to roll, I'm doing lunch every other week (don't want to burn my wallet). But I feel empty.

Why? What is it that makes me do this? What is my BIG WHY?

Then I look at my wife and my daugther, the say...AH HA. That's why I do it.

I read somewhere that people sometimes think prayers don't work when something happens to them, and that when we pray for strength, and something difficult comes along, it's construed the wrong way or meaning.

If something difficult comes along, it's your chance to learn and be strengthened and gain the wisdom you need to move on.

I say, bring it on! BPO's, expired calls, meeting with people...BRING IT ON!

Hello, Johnny!

I'm not familiar with KW training, but a friend told me it's extensive.  Once you're done with it, (and it never ends) you'd be totally equipped to handle the challenges of the business.  With your education and attitude, you'd be a fine agent.  Good luck and best wishes!

I hear your cry.....I just started with KW now going on 3 weeks......and what they have to offer to insure your success takes time to get a grasp on.

My choice was to review all they have on my own.....going to the Reunion was a big help, and I want to be able to ask the questions that will get me going after I have had a chance to review.  I hope to take space at the market center in mid-March or early April to plunge into it body and soul (the last 7 years of my RE life have been working out of my home office).

I wish you much success and happiness in the Family.... I too have the same BIG Why?
