It’s a wonderful thing to help someone grow in their real estate career. Because let’s face it—it’s rough out there for new agents. They’re still getting used to the nontraditional working hours and uncertain income. They’re struggling to get enough leads. And they’re having a tough time winning clients because they don’t have the years of experience to back them up.
If you’re like most people in America, you’re buying too many clothes. You’re eating too many empty calories. You’re spending time with toxic people, when that time could be spent with the people you love.
I’m not trying to make you feel bad. Believe me, I’m definitely at fault. But I would like to propose a challenge—that we all try to be a little more minimalistic.
What is minimalism?
Minimalism is nothing new. It’s basically the idea of “less is more.” It’s about removing excess from your life and focusing only on what’s essential and what brings you long-term joy.
Excess can come in many forms—it might be clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn in a year, daily caramel macchiatos from Starbucks, or too many client meetings booked per week.
Three hundred and sixty five days stretch ahead of you. How will you spend them? What will you do differently to make this year better than the last?
The hiring process is no picnic—not for the job candidates or for the employer—but it’s a necessary step in building a great real estate team. As you navigate through the process of writing a job description, posting to job boards, reviewing resumes, and interviewing candidates, you might find yourself getting overwhelmed. To help you narrow down your choices and find the very best person for your team, here are some things to consider.
“Life sucks, and then you die.”
“Every challenge is a new opportunity.”
Which school of thought do you subscribe to? How do you handle life’s hardships? Do you gripe and moan and accept your situation...or do you find a way to get back on top?
Life is better as an optimist. When you look on the bright side, you’re not just happier, but also healthier and more successful.
Flexible schedules. It’s why so many choose a career in real estate. It gives you the freedom to volunteer at your child’s elementary school, take a mid-week vacation, and keep up with doctor appointments.
