You'll Have The First Shot If Your Head Is Always In The Business

We prepare every day for the future conditions in the real estate business that we are forced to face. Facing them head on is certainly easier said than done.

The way we address this challenge will either make us stronger and wiser or result in our demise in the real estate business. After 41 years in the business, I continue to experience fear of the future.

A relaxed attitude is not my style! Although, my efforts are never chaotic. They are well planned and executed. Don’t be fooled. The fear always exists subconsciously and surfaces when I begin to relax and/or slack off.

Keeping your head in the business is an exercise that needs to be utilized every day.  The frequency of the implementation of that task will eventually make it a function that’s “second nature.” That was always my ultimate goal, and it IS second nature now, no matter where I am.

Is that excessive? Not in my opinion. If I miss the business, someone else will be the recipient.  Not on my watch!!

Just a thought for the moment…..

BarbaraT- When you want to succeed in what you do, you eat, drink and sleep the business. That doesn't mean that you are on 24/7 for work, but your head and actions are always thinking of the business.

Kathy Streib when your business is in place and running smoothly, one needs to spend fewer hours actually working, when you're a listing agent.... branding takes over and the potential client is easier to close.... they have confidence in you....
