2014 Is Going To Be A Great Year

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

I got a notice that there was going to be a very important meeting at one of our offices this morning, we have two in our town. They are brother and sister offices with the same managing broker. The email said it was a 2014 kick off and that important information will be given. I have to admit that I do not go to the meetings because I have so much responsibility. I read the summery.

I work about 60 hours a week, do Active Rain Blogs and are the care taker for my parents, mostly my almost 91 year old dad who requires early morning and afternoon driving to and from downtown Chicago and it is enough to keep me out of trouble cause I have zero time.

Anyway the meeting was to read off all these stats and they were just great. We are the number one brokerage, our numbers are up staggering and we are rocking.

Now I am not saying this to brag, please do not take it that way. I am only saying something positive in writing to make me feel good and maybe to motivate you.

In our office which is the Downtown Evanston office I came in 3rd place as top producer. Second place is a team of two guys so of course two heads are better than one and first place was a super star who has been in the business for a 100 years and knows everyone in the world. 

I am patting myself on the back right now because I made goals and they worked. Yes I was a top producer last year but I had a personal assistant and not so much extra duties as 2013.

All I am saying is this. Set your goals, stick to them, keep a smile on your face even if you feel like crying if you are in front of the public and find good outlets like Active Rain to promote yourself.


That's what I did. Life is not all wine and roses. I have had some unpleasant issues but that is not what we are talking about now.

Hi Noah -- a job well done deserves some praise -- look yourself in the mirror and remember this famous Stuart Smalley quote:


You're Good Enough, You're Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like You

Hi Noah,  Somehow that does not surprise me that you are a top Agent (3rd is tops in my book) I have to commend you for all that you accomplish for what you have to do on the side.  Good for you.  I bet it will be a good year!

Easy to get discouraged and become overwhelmed. But not if you pull in the sights and think today, do the best, go above and beyond just today. Instead of getting blown away at the thought of everything ahead when you have a lot of obligations, personal and business food on your plate. Sounds like you are a good manager of your time and count your blessings, keep a positive attitude.
