Takeaways + Tactics

Our ability to recover quickly from failure is connected to not letting the bad things that happen stick to us.

If you have a mindset of gratitude, hustling, servant leadership and quick recovery when you get knocked down, you can make it.

The problems people face in real estate are because of lack of communication, setting the wrong expectations or having too many leads.

Have you written down the standards for when you will or won’t work with a client? -Hank Avink

To blaze your own trail, you have to have the confidence to turn up the volume on who you are to draw the right people in. If you set higher standards and expectations, and fine tune your communication, your business will be streamlined to avoid common problems in real estate. Connect with people by aiming to elevate every conversation you have. Invest in coaching so that you pay the price and learn from the experiences of other people, without having to pay the cost.
