What's the first thing you do every business morning?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

My guess is you check your email, check your voicemail etc. etc.  I write my blog, after that I turn to what I call my POWERHOUR!  it is a hour that I use for prospecting, whether it is developing a postcard for buyers or sellers. 

Since I am back on my own, I know everything sits on my shoulders to get business.  Yes, this has been a great year so far and I know my POWERHOUR has lots to do with the postive activity I have this year. 

Everyone of us has varies way of prospecting but the key is you need to have a goal and have a heavy sense of doing something.  YOu need to be a GO-GETTER!!!!

Do you have a POWERHOUR daily?  Are you a GO-GETTER?  What do you do daily to reach out and touch someone?

Will, how you start the day sets the tone for the day. 

I check emails, news, and blog, that is 6:30-7:30am.

Breakfast, prayer and read the Bible.

Now I'm set for a power filled day.

Good morning Will,

I came over from Kathy's post this morning from her "Ah-ha" moments and glad I did. I time block which is my saving grace in this business. Having systems in place to facilitate a number of touches monthly to past clients and sphere has really made a difference in my business and market share. Glad to hear you have a system it makes all the difference in the world.

The first thing I do every morning is sit down for 30 minutes and read a business book.  It sets the path for the rest of the day.

The very first thing I do every day is to send a card to my past clients or people within my SOI.  This is a great way to build your business and stay in touch in a unique way.  Building Referrals One Card at a Time

Will -  I am glad Kathy highlighted you because  you have given a powerful message.  I love the power hour.  I think that getting the most important things done first thing is crucial.  I consider the most important things those that have the greatest impact on my business.  For me they would be similar to your list.

Make the coffee and then boot the laptop to see emails, the morning news and then try to get a glimpse of AR

Will: you are correct. We all seem to have a morning routine. Often the key to fine tuning for success is to have an unbiased party review our activity to see if greater efficiency and return can be gleaned. I am just as guilty, but fortunately, my partner, Sandy keeps me in line.

Agree that setting goals/making checklists and sticking to them is critical. Personally, I first need my coffee in the morning and some kind of work-out - tennis, weights, stretching or yoga, to get the day started.

Will, the first thing I do is check my traps. Basically  checking my email to see how many new sign ups I have or see if someone has any questions.

Get out of bed, cup of coffee while I feed the dogs, two mile walk with said dogs listening to affirmations, workout 45 minutes or so, shower/dress/breakfast, drive to work while listening to books on tape or more affirmations. Look at the list of 10 to do's I wrote last night and begin to kick A$$ lead generating!

Great post, and an excellent routine Will.  A POWERHOUR could make a huge difference in my business, I needed a good reminder to get me back on track.

Good morning, Will!  Think it depends on the day, but I try to start the day with catching up on emails and making sure I begin to tackle the "to do" list.
