Cold weather is soon on its way out and hopefully, spring is coming soon. For many of us, spring means all things new, a revitalization of the way we’ve been doing business, and a chance to make changes. Year-end is always a great time to assess goals, but when spring is coming, it seems to be the time to reassess those goals.
I don’t know about you, but I always feel more energetic in the spring, having come out of the dreary doldrums of winter. When my body senses spring is coming, an excitement follows and I’m like a kid anticipating a road trip. I wonder, “are we there yet?” I have little patience for anything and I’m counting down the days until spring is here.
TEAM Hughes Real Estate School is happy spring is coming. Spring represents changes in how we present some of our classes, and spring always represents the chance of presenting a Broker’s class. I’m not sure why we always present the Broker’s class in the spring, but it sure seems like an opportune time for agents to take the class. A Broker’s class, to me, is the beginning of a validation process for real estate agents. It’s a time to show the public their higher education and knowledge about their chosen profession. Even if a real estate agent has no desire to ever own a real estate firm, I cannot imagine why one would not want the added credentials of superior education and experience.
Spring is coming soon and no matter where you live, make it a time to reevaluate the path you are on. Make some changes to that path if it’s not going where you want it to go. A few tweaks here and there could make a huge difference in your real estate career. Don’t be so busy working that you aren’t investing in yourself and your career.
None of us should ever stop growing. As in the plant world, if we stop growing, we tend to die – maybe not physically, but our energy levels, our retention of knowledge, our goals and 0ur ambitions all tend to shrivel up and pass away. The fact that spring is coming can be the catalyst to a renewed growth path, so take advantage of it with excitement and do something to further your real estate career. If it’s not a Broker’s class that attracts you, take another class for growth and expertise.
