Takeaways + Tactics
Figure out the part of real estate that you really enjoy – and look for ways to outsource everything else.
Know your hourly worth, and look for ways to hire out anything that falls below that value.
The missing component for most people is the willingness to build an actionable plan and then executing on it.
Do What You Enjoy Within Your Business
In this episode we began with Gene Volpe giving us a great tip on how to invite people to like your Facebook Business Page who you are not friends with. Jeff Cohn then discussed his history as a realtor and how he reached the point where he decided that he didn’t have the business life he wanted, and how he went about creating his business. Jeff went on to give us a list of book recommendations that you can read to help you make this business life shift. Later in the episode Jeff discussed with us why he still goes to listing presentations and how important it is to still do the things you enjoy if it makes financial sense. We finished up by discussing the importance of not being afraid to put yourself out there and ask people for help.
We also shared insights on;
- Flat-Rate Expansion
- What a business model is
- The importance of being comfortable in your own skin
- How you can learn some of the most important lessons through failure
You CAN Have It All
Working less and living a happier life is a possibility. You don’t need to let go of everything, just limit yourself to things you enjoy. When you go about making this change in your life you have to be willing to take one step back to take three steps forward though, whether that be paying for leads, adding an agent to your team or adding an admin assistant. All of these things can be scary, but you have to take risks if you really want to grow both as a business and as a person. Don’t be afraid to ask people for help, most people who have been successful will be happy to help you start living your dream life today. Life is too short to live it doing the things you don’t love, so get out there today and start taking control of your destiny.
