Thanks a lot for this challenge, Jim Cheney.
Have you asked this question to yourself?
WHO AM I?
What was the answer?
What did you find out?
A Loving Father or A Mother?
A Kind Sister Or A Brother?
A Professional who works to feed the family?
All of these answers may be true.
However, we all have another face.
The person behind the mask of Father or Brother.
Thanks to Jim for bringing out that face.
Since I left my career in IT and started in Real Estate,
I always had a wish to do everything right.
So I started to educate the First Time Home Buyers.
A few seminars in first few years were a huge success.
And it was NOT to be #1 in my market.
It was not important for me that these buyers use my services to buy their first home.
It was a satisfaction that I could guide them in taking the right decision - one of the biggest financial commitment for many.
(Well, it was a passion even at the earlier stage in my life.
I was in college and used to teach Math to high-school students.
Complimentary. Just gather some students around and prepare them for the board exam!)
And as the time passed, my passion for teaching grew.
Now I was 'guiding' the new agents at my office.
It was March 2014, Richmond VA
Success Tour event from Buffini & Company.
At raffle, I won the prize!
I could have perhaps opted for personal benefit.
However, I opted for a Mentor Training.
A mentor who can facilitate PEAK PRODUCERS training.
One of the best - or perhaps the best training in our industry.
I started with just one student in my first batch.
And three in next.
Followed by six.
The last batch in January 2017 had 16 students!
My broker then recognized this and awarded me as
Co-Educator of the year!
Yep, it is complimentary - no charges to facilitate the classes.
However, the students need to invest in material and training.
I do have a passion.
Passion for teaching what I learned from Brian Buffini.
Thanks Jim for allowing me to share the human side!
