Organized Shelvs

At the beginning of the year I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Entreleadership and was inspired by an interview with David Allen.

In this video, I explain a bit more about the "how" and "why" of working through my version of this process.

3 Reasons Your Real Estate Offer Was RejectedBuying real estate can be extremely emotional. After looking at several homes, you finally put an offer in on one. Truthfully, you probably have already "moved yourself in" to the home in your mind. Then you receive the news that your offer was not accepted.

Wouldn't it be better to go into the process with an understanding of why offers to purchase real estate are often rejected?

How does an agent's mindset impact their success or failure? What is an agent's relationship to their own words, and how does this self-awareness (or lack thereof) affect others?  In this video, Keelan explores mindset challenges for entrepreneurs; in particular, discussing 10 mindset pitfalls that agents must avoid.

When my friend Gavin Higashi asked if he could interview me because I am a positive person, I was flattered and excited to share what I have learned. I think that a lot of people that see those of us that display a positive demeanor sometimes think we are simple, ignorant, lucky, etc. I know that for most people that look on the bright side of life, it is a combination of daily choices and actions...and I would like to share some ideas and links to great resources with you!
