Motivational Monday...Are You Adding This Important Ingredient?
When we first moved back to Delray Beach from Northern VA, the market was down everywhere. Agents in Palm Beach County were having to learn about short sales, bank owned properties and, for many targeting a lower price point property.
While I was beginning my staging business in Palm Beach County, I met many agents...some who had coasted during the previous years, now floundered.
At one of my Women’s Council of Realtors, I had the good fortune to meet a seasoned agent who’d been through it all. When I asked her what her secret to success she said very matter of factly…
I’ve been around long enough to know that while it would be easy for me to just work my referrals, I know that I have to keep at it. I go to as many seminars and courses that I can, especially to keep up with the new technology. And I keep at it!!
That agent worked steadily during 2008 and after that. She knew that the recovery would not come that year or even the next. I learned so much from her just chatting with her at these breakfasts.
Just like so many of you here in the ActiveRain Community, you kept after it, doing whatever it took during the down years. You tried blogging but didn’t stop after a few months. You learned about Facebook marketing and making videos as well.
This isn’t just about being an agent, stager or lender. For any of us who are seeking a goal, it’s not enough to know how to do something or even to be ready and willing to go after it. We have to have a never-give-up mindset.
The hustle brings the dollar.
The experience brings the knowledge.
The persistence brings success. Ross Simmonds
