Wasn't Sure What To Name This One

I am always thinking and brainstorming things I can share with you on here that will actually make a difference in your business by using my own experience in the business and from the agents that I currently coach.

Which One Are You Wearing?

We all have so many different ones that we have to wear even in a single day. We are moms, dads, significant others, Realtors, sisters, brothers, children, coaches, cleaners, and the list could go on.

Which hat are you wearing at any given time? Might seem like a silly question but if we can learn to truly focus on the hat we're wearing at any given moment instead of all the other hats we have to wear our lives, our business, and the lives of those around us would be…

Court or Bleachers?

I had a coaching call the other day with a group of 25 Realtors and as we were talking about their business, mindset, and life I asked them a question.  The question was, are you on the court in life or on the bleachers?
