3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Don’t underestimate the importance of good leadership (08:18-09:07)
If you are a visionary, it’s likely that at some point you’ve expected more from your team than is actually possible. Make sure you’re articulating exactly what you expect them. It’s easy to get caught up in what you think should happen, but unless you communicate that, you’re not going to see the results you want.
Focus on building relationships (11:35- 12:32)
No matter how much the real estate industry seems to be changing, one constant factor is the necessity to build relationships. Be sure to stay top of mind for clients past and present. You can do this by sending them video content. Unlike emails, which are usually impersonal, sending videos helps people get to know, like and trust you— and ultimately build profitable relationships with you as a result.
Safeguard yourself from burnout (21:51- 23:27)
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking you need to do all the work in your business. Wherever you can, trade your money for time. Leveraging in this way will protect you from burnout. While it’s important to put work into your business, putting in that work should never be a barrier to your personal freedoms.
There are a lot of challenges that business owners have to face, and it’s inevitable that you’ll run into a problem somewhere along your journey to business freedom. However, learning from others’ mistakes can help you navigate those problems more easily. Focus on being a good leader and treating your company like the business it is. However, remember to prioritize the things that matter to you. Success requires a balance.
