How to Build Social Good into Your Business w/Scott Morris

How to Build Social Good into Your Business w/Scott Morris

Watch the On-Demand

We tend to think of our businesses as a way to make money, and something we should keep separate from our personal lives. Is it possible to embrace our personal beliefs and passions, while also benefiting our businesses? How can we use our businesses to increase awareness for the charities we believe in? On this episode, host of the Dreaming of Cooperstown podcast and social entrepreneur Scott Morris shares how we can build social good into our businesses. 

Making a difference in other people’s lives will bring the riches and success you’re chasing. -Greg McDaniel

Takeaways + Tactics

  • Our businesses and passions don’t need to be separate. We can merge the two by donating a portion of what we receive from clients to a charity we or the client are passionate about.
  • Don’t worry about being vulnerable. Sharing our stories with clients only endears us to them.
  • Create a network of business owners with shared passions and interests. This boosts our profiles while spreading awareness for the causes closest to our hearts.

As business owners, we have the power to bring awareness to the issues we feel strongly about. We no longer need to hide our advocacy or be afraid to share why we support certain causes. Use the positions we occupy for good- there’s no reason why our businesses shouldn’t benefit from our social good. In fact, we can do good while benefiting our businesses.

How to Specialize in the Downsizing Market w/Kim Stanley

Watch the On-Demand

There are some common fears that agents have when they scope out a speciality, and they center around having enough business and feeling like they’re limiting themselves. How can we overcome these fears? What should we be looking at when deciding on niche markets? How can we add value to the clients we serve in the downsizing market? In this episode, Kim Stanley explains what we need to do to specialize in the downsizing market, as well as how her downsizing specialist course can help us build our business.

There are six subsets of downsizers and you should choose the sub-niche that fits best for you and for your market. -Kim Stanley

Takeaways + Tactics

  • The most difficult thing clients face when downsizing is letting go of their belongings. We need to be able to guide and advise them through the process of getting rid of things that aren’t worth anything, and that aren’t of any further use.
  • When looking to specialize, we need to research the statistics on a national and local level to make an informed decision. The numbers and money point to the downsizing market, and it’s a market that’s on the increase. 
  • There are different subsets and types of people who downsize – seniors, divorcees, empty nesters – and we should be focusing on the subset that is the best fit for us and our market.

Nationally, 10,000 people turn 65 every day and together they’ve got $2,5 trillion to invest in real estate. The people who fall into the downsizing market are the most financed niche in the United States. One of the toughest decisions agents have to make is choosing what to specialize in, and there is a lot of fear around making this choice. By looking at demographic and market statistics in our area we can put those uncertainties to bed and cater to the needs and wants of the sub-niche market that aligns with us and our local market.

For newer agents, the biggest challenge is getting those first leads going in order to get your first deal. How can we create opportunities to get in front of potential clients? How can we do open houses well? How can you build pieces into your business to increase your chances of getting a deal? On this episode, Colemere Realty leader, Bryan Colemere shares on how to work your way towards your first deal. 

Don’t let the fear of not knowing stop you from making the call or holding the open house. -Bryan Colemere 

Takeaways + Tactics

  • If you’re struggling and need to get the business going, hold an open house. 
  • Other agents are not your competition, they are your salesforce. Look at them as a gateway to more clients. 
  • Don’t think you have to be fastened to your desk to get business. Take part in your hobbies and social events and make sure people know that you’re in real estate.

Even as a new agent, you have access to many people who can help lead you to your very first deal. The first thing you need to do is really zone into your sphere of influence and start letting them know what you do. Don’t be afraid to make calls, hold open houses and making sure your community knows that you’re in real estate. It might seem challenging to get that first result, but if you leverage your time wisely and employ different tools, you can get results.

How to Maximize Your Freedom and Personal Growth w/Justin Zimmerman

How to Maximize Your Freedom and Personal Growth w/Justin Zimmerman

Watch the On-Demand

The path to happiness and success is full of mental traps that our minds put us in. We create all these reasons why we can’t do something based on uncertainty or ease, especially when we are starting out. How does facing adversity help us minimize excuses? What mindset should we have when making commitments to ourselves? How can we train ourselves to consistently spend time working on our personal goals? In this episode, Justin Zimmerman talks about personal growth and development, and how building rituals and routines into our lives can help us grow in the way we want to be growing.

Everything starts with how strong and serious your internal commitment to yourself and to your goals is. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

  • When we face enough adversity and overcome it, the voices in our heads that tell us we can’t do something become insignificant and the excuses we used to make for ourselves become irrelevant.
  • We often don’t honor the commitments we make to ourselves in the same way we honor those with others. Once we make a commitment to ourselves, we need to honor it and get over our excuses.
  • When we have a dedicated time every day for doing what we need to do to reach our personal goals, we are training ourselves to do it automatically. Our excuses for not spending time working towards our goals fall away because it’s pre-negotiated.

The commitments we make to ourselves are just as important as the ones we make to others, yet we seem honor them less. These commitments, and the fulfillment of them, play a big role in our sense of self and our confidence. We need to get past the excuses and negotiations we have with ourselves about taking the steps to reach our personal goals by making sure that we have a dedicated time blocked off every day to work on these goals. Once we have built this into our schedule, the excuses we used to make fall away because taking that action becomes automatic and something that we have pre-negotiated.

How to Be Your Own Bank and Make Your Money Work for You w/Chris Naugle

How to Be Your Own Bank and Make Your Money Work for You w/Chris Naugle

Watch the On-Demand

Most agents feel like they can’t buy investment property because they don’t have the money to. Instead of focusing on our money that comes in and goes out, we should be looking at what assets are available to us. How does the banking system keep us poor? How can we break free from that? How can we use money and assets in a way that helps us build a life of freedom? In this episode, Chris Naugle discusses how the banking system really works, and how we can adopt its systems to be more successful.

You can double your money and you don’t have to work any longer or any harder or change anything in your life – you just have to use the money that’s sitting there doing nothing. -Chris Naugle

Takeaways + Tactics

  • We need to start working on our business instead of in our business, and our business will explode.
  • We don’t need to have money to be successful – we have to be resourceful and learn how money works, and we can figure out how money works by looking at what banks are doing and duplicating it.
  • To be successful people we need to do two things really well: invest our time and invest our money.


The banking system is set up to make banks more money and to keep us reliant on them in a cycle of debt. By using money from 401(k)s, home equities and other assets that are just sitting there doing nothing, we can invest in ourselves and our business and become our own bank. If we don’t have assets like these, we need to approach those who do with the opportunity to use and make money from their assets that are otherwise sitting stagnant. We need to learn how to make money work for us so that we don’t have to work harder for less.
