“By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may eventually get to be a boss and work twelve hours a day.” - Robert Frost You don’t have to wait for a new year to make resolutions. In fact, if you continue to struggle with work/life balance, today is the best time of all to set the biggest kind of goals there are – the kind that have to do with the quality of your life. Any of the other goals you set such as implementing a certain program or reaching a certain sales number are really o....

“The surest cure for vanity is loneliness.” — Thomas Wolfe In a world where cyber social networking has, for many, overtaken actual face-to-face contact, and a person’s worth is measured by the photo-shopped pictures of themselves that they upload, and the number of friends and “followers” they have, it’s really easy to delude ourselves into believing that our value can be determined by how many people “see” us. I glanced at an article the other day about a recent book writ....

“Your paradigm is so intrinsic to your mental process that you are hardly aware of its existence, until you try to communicate with someone with a different paradigm.” – Donella Meadows I read an article a while back that revealed that widespread use of electric cars would reduce U.S. oil demand (and the demand for imported oil) to a greater extent than use of renewable power sources such as solar and wind. The numbers were pretty staggering ... something like a 2.5 million barrel a day....

“Nothing is more powerful than NOT starting … because it ends everything before anything is begun. The next most powerful force is starting. With any goal, the most important thing to do is start. Somehow. Any way you can. Ready or not. Start.” – Dan Kennedy Truthfully, the most powerful advice I can give you is to DO something to change your future. As a member of my system, you have multiple tools at your disposal. You’ve already invested something in your association with me – ....

In renowned business writer Michael Gerber’s book The E-Myth Revisited, he makes the point that many business owners are so busy working IN their businesses that they don’t have time to work ON their business. The entrepreneur who starts the business (i.e. the “E” in the E Myth) now finds him or herself trapped by all the small details required to keep that business running. Real Estate agents are notorious for this. Most of you chose real estate as a vocation because you wanted to be yo....

You run an ad on Craigslist or in your local paper and you don’t get the response you were looking for. You only got a couple of leads and they weren’t even any good. Was your headline wrong? The placement? Your call to action? Did the ad not have enough meaningful consumer benefits? Perhaps it was your follow up that was the problem. Maybe the leads actually were good but you just didn’t say the right things to convert them. What should you do differently next time? The average agent w....

You may have heard it before -- our real estate business being described as a business of peaks and valleys.  It’s the continuous natural cycle of either having too much business coming in all at once, or nothing at all, feeling worried about when and where your next paycheck will be coming. I call it a natural cycle, because it’s the cycle that we all fall into when we don’t have a business system in place.  You start with no prospects, and you begin to do the things that will get yo....

Just wanted to share a note from realtor Mike Burge from Naples, FL. What Mike shared with me is all the more amazing given that he's so new to the business ...he hasn't even had his real estate license for a year. Think about that ... while so many of you were toiling through the last few years trying to navigate the rocky waters, Mike just dropped into our arena about seven months ago. He made his very first sale just before our Anaheim SuperConference last November, but he's already made a s....
