Want to kick ass in real estate? Forget goals...create habits instead.

Posted by Dave Crumby on Sep 1, 2017 8:03:00 AM

Each of these requires a clear vision of the goal, but more importantly, the willingness to create healthy habits toward progress. We are a goal-focused culture...and this may be working against us.

Building Your Real Estate Business…for Life

Posted by Dave Crumby on Aug 24, 2017 11:57:32 AM

This week, I spoke at the industry event Best Conference Ever. It was organized by Lee Adkins, David Lightburn, and Maura Neill.

Building something like this didn't happen overnight—they put in a lot of work. It wasn't just the logistics of pulling all of the pieces together to put on a show, but also the years of relationship-building it took to gather this group of speakers, sponsors, and attendees.

I took this photo this morning and it got me thinking about life...

Every morning I wake up at 4:30 am and drive over to this trailhead for a quick hike. It's roughly a 3.5 mile loop and takes about an hour. Perfect way to wake up and get some quiet time/meditation before the day starts.  

Out of my 3.5 mile hike, the 'beautiful moment' in this pic only lasts a few minutes... then it's gone.
