Counting My Blessings - 06.05.16

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    I know that it has been some time since I have darkened the hallowed halls of ActiveRain and I have my reasons. Since going through and graduating from BOLD, a Keller Williams training session for real estate agents, I realized that I was not where I needed to be in my real estate career. Sure, I was busy doing what earned my livelihood, I was not where I needed to be. I had to make a decision.
    I an grateful for this experience and I learned much. For one, “What I focus on expands. I have a choice to focus on what supports the livelihood of the Complete Home Inspections Team (TeamCHI) or I an focus on unproductive activities. Because my team is near and dear to my heart, I choose to focus on their livelihood. That’s whats important.
    Since I have focused on the livelihood of the team, we had a wonderful month last month and are off to a great start for the month of June. I am grateful that the team, especially the marketing staff, is getting the office presentations and we are forming great relationships with our referral partners. As we all know, real estate is a relationship business - it does not matter what side of the transaction one is on.
    I am grateful that I am now attracting better transactions into my life and the life of the business. We have done several high-end properties and they are a joy to inspect. It is a pleasure to see how those who earn high incomes live including their furnishings, artwork and opulent homes. Perhaps, the ‘Law of Attraction’ is telling me something . . .
    Good night . . .

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this evening.

Michael, that is just wonderful! I am so happy for you! And I cannot disagree with anything you said. I have been focusing on me, and that has taken me away from here. Perhaps I am back now, with a new outlook, positive thinking and a new direction for my writing.

Smart decision indeed. Focus on the most important and productive items.

Oh, and I can relate to going many higher end homes. I've had a bunch fact one that is a $7 million dollar home last week.

BTW, I find that working with some of the top producing real estate agents and ones in the higher end homes helps a lot.  And, several of them have introduced me/recommended me to others in their office who also have higher end properties.

I have also dropped off the social media map, just because it's not the most productive thing I do. I've learned that during the summer, it's best to harvest the crops I plant in the winter.
