On Saturday morning I received a wonderful text from a long time friend.

We haven't talked for a while but as soon as I saw his number, I dialed.

He started off by saying...

You have been on my mind a lot lately and I hope you are doing well!

I think of you on Sunday mornings  and wondering if you are still doing the radio show. He asked how my business was and if I still had a waiting list and if I was still getting my full commission.

You see his beautiful wife, Lauren, is  managing a brokerage in Pa. and the office requires a minimum commission.  One of the agents  is struggling to get that amount.

That's when she mentiond me .

I have been protecting my commission since my very first listing. There is a Floyd Wickman audio tape "Protecting Your Commission" that I was part of way back in 1996. My position has not changed

                                                     

 

 

Gary suggested her agent give me a call.

We had a good laugh.

We caught up on Mike and Mary and Floyd and life and business and family and more importantly friendship. 

 

Who is this longtime friend that I have known for over 25 years?


Gary Sisson,  the best trainer in the Floyd Wickman program. 

We met while I was taking , what used to be called, Sweat Hogs.

Friendship multiplies the good in life!

 

Margaret Rome

Oh Margarett, what a wonderful call, and yes we are not supposed to talk about commissions,...but it really is not that hard to get full commission... if you do everything right, building rapport, etc... on a side note I remember the "sweat hogs" program... I had them on cassettes....:))Endre

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland,

A name I fondly remember as well as his classes. I learned so much and still practice many business practices I learned. I even gave one of my pins "You get by giving" to an agent in my office who has made remarkable progress by really giving it her all!

Endre Barath, Jr. Remember those cassettes and that's what I used to listen to in the car. They were wonderful and filled with information. You just took the ideas and put them in your own words. I made one of those cassettes with Floyd about "Protecting your commission"

Hi Margaret,
Your graphic reminded me of the quote I have on the wall in my hallway.  "Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief."    So true!

I've heard so much about Floyd Wickman's trying and the Sweat Hogs.  And the people talking about it are great agents like you.

I remember Sweat Hogs. When I first entered the business a wonderful agent took me under her wing and she had been through the program.
