by Nikki Buckelew

I've pretty much decided that the fate of humankind rests solely on the timely dissemination of wisdom and quotes via the memes and images we all see daily on Facebook, Instagram, and across the Internet.

While that statement is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, there are many worthy concepts that are so easily summed up in just a few words and therefore the perfect length for just such an image.

So, you say you'd like to improve things in your life, either personally, professionally, or both?

What would happen if you simply focused on developing a plan (and following it)

Becoming a Life and Real Estate Alchemist

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 …

Do You Feel Like a Square Peg Trying to Fit Into a Round Hole?

Written on May 29, 2013 at 12:37 pm

by Nikki Buckelew

This weekend I was sitting with my one year-old granddaughter as she played with her toys. We have one in particular that she finds quite frustrating - it’s the one that requires you to match the correct shape with the corresponding hole in the box in order to push it through.

I love the toy myself because I know after she has tried the star block in every hole she eventually finds the star shaped hole and pushes it through. Of course we do this over and over again before she finally realizes that the square blocks …

Building a Professional Platform in Your Real Estate Sales Practice

Written on November 9, 2012 at 3:19 pm

One of the most powerful and valuable assets overlooked by REALTORS® is that of the business to business relationship (B to B).

Not only are B to B relationships key in fulfilling the client service role, but it is also critical in developing reciprocal opportunities for longterm marketing, lead generation, and sales.

In our real estate coaching programs, we often find that agents have focused largely on their Personal Platform, but have left out the Professional Platform component. And when they have begun building a B to B network, they have centered their efforts around professionals closely tied to the …

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.…

Airplanes Suck Your Brain

Written on February 14, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Several years ago at an event (and because it was several years ago I cannot remember which exact event) we had the privilege of hearing Mo Anderson, the Vice-Chair of the Board of Keller Williams Realty International, speak.

At the end of a long and content-rich conference, Momma Mo was insightful enough to know that we (REALTORS) often take both mental and written notes and then get back to our places of business and go right back to our old ways and habits. I am guessing this is true for people in other professions too, but I can’t speak for …
