Are You Still Trying to Please People Who Can’t Be Pleased?

Written on April 26, 2013 at 8:31 am

Do you call yourself a “people pleaser?” Is there always that little voice inside your head saying, “I wonder what other people will think of this idea?” Are you consistently disappointed in the reactions of certain others in your life who never seem to recognize your contributions?

Well, if this is true, quoting Bob Newhart, I say, “STOP IT!”

As long as you continue to do what you do to please others, you are destined to a life of failure, disappointment, heartache and hurt. Period.

How do I know? I have been there and lived in that world too.

To-Do List or Success List – It’s Your Choice

Written on April 17, 2013 at 8:51 am

A past client and business Facebook friend recently called me out on a Facebook status posting for saying that I have a “to-do” list. He preferred I say I have a “success list” or some other derivative of the same. Surprised that he would be somewhat argumentative about my system there on my newsfeed, I inquired a bit more.

It became clear to me that his response was correlated with some trainings I had given while working at my former company. He was merely feeding back to me what I had dished out multiple times in multiple venues to thousands …

Hiring Help – Expense or Investment?

Written on April 8, 2013 at 7:10 am

 

People frequently call for real estate coaching or are involved in coaching groups I belong to or lead and when the topic turns to investing money or time into their “business” - especially money - they get audibly or visibly uncomfortable and edgy. I often hear comments like, “but that would cut into my commissions/income,” or “it’s too expensive to hire someone to _____.”

First, let’s define a business. Basically, it is where a person creates a system to exchange goods and/or services for money. Clearly there is a big difference between having just any old "business" and having …

Simple System for Getting Meaningful Testimonials

Written on March 16, 2013 at 1:42 pm

 

 

 

It is so much better for people to hear from a third party how great you are instead of you trying to toot your own horn!

To get meaningful testimonials from your clients, stop asking for testimonials and start asking for feedback! Here’s exactly what you need to do, step by step.

 

Step 1. Ask clients for feedback.

  • After closing, verbally ask your client and any other parties to the transaction if they’d be willing to give you feedback on working with you.
  • Get a photo of the client at closing or during the sales process.

Spreading SoulFire

Written on March 4, 2013 at 9:52 am

Just a short and sweet note of appreciation today. It's been so amazing to watch the SoulFire Series spread across the nation. Last month we were in Pensacola, FL and San Antonio, TX and this month in St Louis, MO - sharing SoulFire. People are calling me regularly asking about SoulFire coaching and training events.

What I am beginning to realize is that people need it. We all need it. We need to know that life is full of all the things we want and are searching for - fun, love, adventure, security, abundance, health, and freedom. It's right there …

Loving Your Listings

Written on February 14, 2013 at 10:16 am

I was asked to give a talk this week for one of the top real estate brokerages in Pensacola, Florida. Chris and I have known Audie Street, the manager at Mainstreet Properties for several years. He is one of those people you just can’t help but like. Audie is upbeat, energetic, positive, and thrives on helping his agents succeed. When he asked me to speak to his group on Valentines Day and said they wanted to title the talk, Loving Your Listings, of course I said, “Perfect.”

As I worked on the outline for my talk, I realized that …

My Facebook Dilemma – 5 Things I Have Learned

Written on January 16, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Having nearly 5000 friends on Facebook is crazy.

And to think that all 4853 people were actually “friends” is delusional at best. 

Back when Facebook first came on the scene, it was so cool to have someone request to be my “friend.” Maybe it is my high “I” behavior style that loved the idea of someone wanting to connect with me. Then my high “D” behavioral characteristic and my competitive nature kicked into overdrive in an attempt to have more friends faster.

Being on the road teaching to large audiences across the country for a couple of years certainly helped …

SoulFire Goal Setting with NikkiandChris.com

We wanted to give you a concise overview of what we spoke about on our free teleconference call on Friday, January 4th called “Goal Setting with a SoulFire Spark.” This call was the first in a series of calls committed to helping you live a SoulFire life!

Let's face it!

This time of the year, everyone is all rah-rah, but it doesn't seem to take long for that same enthusiasm to dampen a bit. Is it possible to retain that spark by adding some SoulFire? Yes, we say, yes it is!

That's because SoulFire is about so …
