Is There Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Written on January 31, 2012 at 9:54 am

Have you found yourself walking down the path of building a new business, reinventing an old one, or entering a new career field altogether?

Does it feel like you re walking down a hallway or tunnel and there are doors everywhere...  you just aren’t sure which ones to walk through and which ones to leave closed?

Or are there any doors at all?

Do you wonder if the hall will lead where you think it will, or if it is just a perpetual tunnel full of obstacles and distractions with one day being full of anticipation and excitement and next …


Using the 1-3-5 to Clarify Your Goals

Written on January 11, 2012 at 9:53 am

Do you over-complicate the goal setting and business planning process?

As coaches, we see two extremes when it comes to creating a plan for goal achievement.

1. No plan at all

2. A plan that is way too cumbersome and complex

Often those who do not create a plan or put anything in writing state that they just feel overwhelmed with the process. For the people who over-complicate it with multiple spreadsheets, charts, graphs, and hours of time on endless checklists and systems, it can become a distraction we refer to as "getting ready to get ready."

Either extreme can …


Life Isn’t Practice

My current favorite book is “Aspire” by Kevin Hall. It was a gift from a dear friend and came with a beautiful note inside from his as well as being personally autographed by the author.

The book was an easy read and had a profound impact on me right away. I found myself engrossed in Kevin Hall’s passion for certain words in our vocabulary that we often just take for granted and use without having a true sense of the real meaning behind them. I especially appreciated the lessons on Genshai and Namaste.

In the second chapter of the book …


Comfortable Being Uncomfortable?

Written on December 6, 2011 at 10:08 am

I received an email today from someone that caught my attention. It was in response to a marketing email I sent for an exclusive program we developed for building a niche within your real estate business.

The email response from this person read, “Seems a bit overwhelming from what you have written we have to do, and do my business at the same time....”

My first instinct was, “Isn’t building your business A PART OF doing your business?”

There is no doubt being an entrepreneur or a self-employed business owner can at times feel overwhelming. I feel that way most …


Real Estate Is My Business. Not my life.

Friends vs Job

Because the NAR (National Association of Realtors) ad campaign telling people “We are Realtors. Real estate is our life” bugs the crap out of me,  I decided to do a little journaling in my online journal in hopes that it will make me feel a little better.

It did in fact help (as my journaling usually does) and then I wondered if maybe my thoughts could somehow contribute to others and decided to share it in my blog. It’s probably rough around the edges as a result, so ignore the grammar and read for content please.

Are You Creating Your Own Stress?

Sales race at

For all the high-achievers out there who aren’t giving themselves enough credit for their accomplishments. For those who are isolating themselves in the name of a goal. And for those who are trying to become a version of themselves that someone else has designed.

A little over a year ago, I realized a trend in some of the top agents I was coaching. These were highly driven, success oriented, obedient, and talented people, being compelled to fully engage in a training course whereby they were challenged to compete and “win” by following a set of pre-determined rules over a period …


When will you quit?

Written on September 29, 2011 at 1:00 pm

A High Achiever, Success Oriented, Goal Setting, Entrepreneur or Top Tiered Manager never quits.

Quit while you’re ahead? No Way. There’s still more success to be had.


As a High Achiever, I feel proud of that fact, do you? A more difficult question, though, does your family feel proud that you never quit? Not your mom or dad per se, but your partner or spouse? What about your children?


They may feel proud of you and see your value as a High Achiever, but in your refusal to quit, do they feel loved, appreciated, and cared for?

I …


Are you satisfied?

Written on September 28, 2011 at 1:39 pm


If you are a Type A personality, or in other words, a High Achiever, we understand that having big dreams, plans, and goals comes naturally to you.  You know how to work hard and multi-task, and how to attract new opportunities.

You see more, want more, and can do more for your family and in your business.


People like you achieve many things through their natural temperament and talents alone.


If your goal is to succeed in business while raising a family, your natural temperament will take you most of the way.  Satisfaction, however, may be more …
