Becoming a Life and Real Estate Alchemist

Written on September 2, 2014 at 8:12 am

real estate business building

by Nikki Buckelew

I've been on a bit of a literary binge recently as it concerns the topics of my blog posts here.

I've taken some thoughts from authors like Eckhart Tolle and Kahlil Gibran and expanded on them in ways that I think may be helpful to you in life and your real estate business.

So why stop now? Let's ruminate on the work of another author, specifically Paulo Coelho and his masterpiece "The Alchemist."

Paulo Coelho

As Wikipedia says, "The Alchemist is an allegorical novel, following a young Andalusian shepherd named Santiago in his journey to Egypt, after

Kahlil Gibran, Chris Brogan, Nikki Buckelew and You: Rebels with a Cause

The Beauty of a Soulful, Real Estate Rebellion

Do you have a little rebel in ya? What about a Rebel Yell aching to scream forth?

It's funny how similar thoughts and philosophies can jump out at you in surprising succession. Last night, I read a portion of Kahlil Gibran's book “Spirits Rebellious” in which a character beseeches a village of peasants to rebel against the tyrants who have forced them into serfdom.

Then – only about 12 hours later – I received a weekly email newsletter from business relationship and Internet marketing guru Chris Brogan with the title “How Do …

St Louis’ Rob Shanks: The Face of a SoulFire Real Estate Agent

Written on January 31, 2014 at 11:37 am

by Nikki Buckelew

Back in September of 2013 I wrote a blog post called "Don't Let Illusion Defeat You: Think SoulFire."

It spoke of how each of our lives is loaded with illusion and explained that when I write about SoulFire, when I discuss SoulFire agents, when I coach on how to live a SoulFire life, what I’m talking about is the ability to cut through the illusion and lies - namely the falsehoods that each of us believe about ourselves.

Rob Shanks is a NikkiandChris.com coaching client who has latched onto the SoulFire approach to life and a real …

The SoulFire of Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela had it.

He had SoulFire.

It's hard to imagine any global figure who better embodied the quality we know as "SoulFire."

You know that I talk and write about SoulFire agents and encourage you to grow this part of yourself that can zoom a real estate business to greater heights and your personal life to unimagined peace.

But the death of the man they call "Mandiba" in South Africa caused me to pause and revel in the SoulFire that he took to an entirely different level.

Think about this and really put yourself in his shoes.

Don’t Let Illusion Defeat You: Think SoulFire

Written on September 11, 2013 at 5:09 pm

The picture posted below is what inspired me to write on the topic of illusion.

I mean, look at that! It's an illusion of the highest order. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines illusion as “the state or fact of being intellectually deceived or misled.”

When I write about SoulFire, when I discuss SoulFire agents, when I coach on how to live a SoulFire life, what I'm talking about is the ability to cut through the illusion.

Your life is loaded with illusion and, in fact, much of what we perceive daily is just that. Each of us goes through …

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 …

by Coach Art and Anna Kleimer

Are You a Leader or Manager?

If you are a leader you will prosper.  If you are a manager, learn to become a leader or start sending out your resume to old world thinking companies.

What distinguishes Leaders from Managers?

Leaders coach, motivate, and inspire others to grow to take over the leaders functions so the leader can go to the next level.

10 Leader To Do’s

1. Be a life long learner.  Great leaders are always learning usually using coaches to enhance learning. There are two sides to every box, the inside and …

Too Many Hats? Time to Add a Team Member

Written on April 9, 2012 at 2:33 pm

How many hats can you wear in your real estate business until they are balanced so precariously on your head that they begin to topple uncontrollably toward the ground?

Not even a master real estate productivity coach can answer that question for you.

We will tell you from experience, however, that not only does every PERSON have a limit; so, too, the growth potential of every BUSINESS in any industry has a limit as well.

And that is truer than ever for real estate agents across the country who are trying to take their business and productivity to new levels.…
