They say stepping out of your "comfort zone" and showing a willingness to do new things is good. That lesson is valid whether you're talking about buying a first home or doing your first webinar. I did the latter just this morning ...
With the assistance of small business and real estate consultant, facilitator, and wonderful friend Carra Riley, I tackled my first online webinar today. A webinar that addresses the other "first" I speak of above ... Buying a First Home.
There were a few minor hiccups with sound (at first), but all in all this first video webinar went well. Many of the fears I had previously have now disappeared. Truth is, the unknown was far more scarey than the actuality.
Much the same can be said about Buying your First Home in Chicagoland. Education and preparation are key, as is who you choose to work with during your transaction. I learned during the making of my first video that sometimes it's best to learn as much as you can, make your preparations, and then dive into the waters.
I had great professionals at my side ... and that made all the difference to my mindset and to the outcome. Do the same during your First-Time Home Buying transaction and you'll end-up successful too.
My new webinar featured two of my Chicagoland referral partners ...
Anne McMillin of Starting Point Realty ...
Richard Stringham of Stringham Insurance Agency in Mokena ...
We hoped that the info and assistance provided within the video would aid Chicagoland First-Time Home Buyers. Each of us was hoping to take the "fear factor" out of first-time home buying transactions for our viewers. I hoped we accomplished that and more.
Here's my video/link:
I know I learned a lot today. And again, I must say thank you to Carra Riley for that. Making this video certainly reinforced a lesson about the "comfort zone" thing too. Because of Carra's generosity and efforts I know I'll definitely be much more relaxed and educated about the ins-and-outs of video, webinars, and Google+ Hang-Outs in the future.
I'm looking forward to adding even more informational Mortgage financing videos and webinars in the future. Be watching for them as I hope to share more on the topics of Mortgage financing, Credit/Credit Scores, Mortgage Pre-Qualification, preparing to Buy a Home, Mortgage Application, Chicagoland Construction financing, and more soon.
