What happened to Mike Ferry?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty West
I came to this group to see an open discussion on Mike Ferry systems.  I see absolutely no mention of Mike Ferry anywhere.  Help me out here.  I'm sort of new to Active Rain.  Do we setup groups and then never discuss what the group says it is about?  Color me Clueless ...

I think the group is for those who follow the Mike Ferry system and not necessarily for discussing Mike Ferry although I'm not sure.  Either way, I would like to see more content directly related to the group name...  I find this to be true in MANY of the groups that I am a part of.

I just joined this group & ActiveRain.  I too thought this could/would be a place we could brainstorm & share ideas.  I rejoined Mike's coaching program last Oct. 

My issue right now is mindset, I think.  I just can't seem to get back in the mood to prospect.  Anyone ever have this issue?  How do you overcome it?

I'm like you Lesa.  Oh, what I wouldn't give for a magic elixar that i could take in the morning and 30 minutes later be so full of motivation to pick up that phone and begin prospecting.  Anyone have any idea where I can find that magic?

You have to dig deep.  One of my favorite things that Mike says is "How badly do you want it & what price are you willing to pay to get it"?

We all know that successful people are successful because they are willing to do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.

Happy prospecting!

Everyone! I have to apologize, I started this group many months ago, but then I couldn't find anyone interested in Mike ferry ideas. Now I am happy to see that we have so many people here, I promise to keep it up!

I love Mike Ferry - His first book really launched my business.  I might go back to basics and read it again...

Most of us who really follow Mike and what he says, and actually do it, don't have much time for this kind of thing.  Check out my bloggs, especially the schedule I followed after joing MFO 16 years ago.  My schedule had me up at 5:00 AM, and on the phone by 8:00 AM prospecting for 3 straight hours, then I did the rest of my job.  I was happy to see there was a MFO group on active rain, I use it because it helps my web site placment.  I've been in one on one coaching for 16 years, and am now working only 5-6 months a year.  I have averaged selling 195 homes for 11 straight years, with my highest year of 250 homes.  I'm in Katy Texas, which is the west side of the greater Houston area.  Let me know if you have any specific questions?  I'm always willing to help.  Best of luck, and keep prospecting.  Liz Carter, www.lizcarter.com

Oh, by the way, Mike is alive and well, he is on fire since he has been with Sabrina and his kids left to start their own coaching business.  Last year he NETED $11 MILLION, bought a 7 million boat he named the Superstare.  You need to go to the one on one in San Deigo in Jan. and see for yourself.  Liz Carter

Liz, thanks for your post.  I agree with you, most MFO agents don't have time to spend a lot of time on the computer.

Your blog about the Top 10 things you've learned through coaching with Mike Ferry was very helpful to me.  I can see, by the length of time you've been involved, you're very committed to the MFO system.  I'm a 1-on-1 client as well & this is the time of year where I tend to question if I should continue in 1-on-1, luckily, I signed a new contract in Oct. so I wouldn't give myself an out.

Your post helped confirm why I continue, so THANK YOU.  I look foward to hopefully meeting you @ the 1-on-1 Retreat in Jan. 2008.
