My Goals & Challenges for August

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate in IL & NV | Owner of Real Estate Web Tech | Daily Vlogger 177506

Another month is upon us, we are done with more than half the year.

Hard to believe isn't it?

Yesterday, I found myself thinking about what I would challenge myself to do in the beautiful month of August. I came up with a few things and ultimately decided on TWO main goals to take me down the road of success further.

1) To write a blog everyday for the month (Darn today is August 2nd, guess it's two blogs today to catch up.

2) To post a YouTube video everyday.

These goals brought on an entire new set of questions, what they heck would I make videos about?

The answer came to me quite quickly. Since I am dropping off my Real Estate application at the Division in yet another state tomorrow morning, why not show the world my marketing skills by showing how a new agent, with limited money & marketing, no local friends or relatives, can make it as a Real Estate Agent.

Trying to show that you can succeed with out a lot of money or connections just seems like a fun added challenge. Most of us started with limited resources, I think this will help accuratly show what it's like starting in this business.

After Ohio and Illinois, Las Vegas seemed like a great place to expand to next. Real Estate is an awesome career, but I love the business side of placing 

teams in different states and cities just as much. 

I have been working on creating my own course also, that has taught me even more about marketing, website building and more. The education side is another exciting part of expanding for me.  

Lot's of things happening in August, I am up for the challenge and hopefully complete it. 

I hope everyone else is on track to their own goals this month & year. 

Stay tuned for posts about my YouTube channel to follow the journey of starting with no database in Real Estate as an experienced agent.

Wow those are lofty goals.  I have done a blog post for every day for a month several times, but never video. Good for you.  Let us know the results.

Thanks everyone.

Debbie Gartner & Tammy Lankford that is a lot of videos, but I have a few pretty simple quick once I'm thinking about. Hopefully it's doable...most likely it will be 10 on the 31st!

 Good Monday morning Stephan. Those are lofty goals. The blogs are easy, the videos can be time-consuming. However, I believe that you can do it once usage of mind to doing it.
