Attitude Is Everything

Attitudes are your most important tool to sell more, especially now, while everything is going on.

There are people selling 40, 50, 60 and 80 units per month, and earning $100,000, $200,000, $300,000 and $500,000+ per year.

No Manual When I Needed It!

I hadn’t used my drone lately and needed it for a video of my property. It’s off grid with no internet connection, so I couldn’t get to the manual on how to link to the controller. I wish I’d downloaded it sooner, so I’d had it when I needed it. I did that today! Download …

Experience vs. Skills & Attitude

About experience in sales… 1. If all it took was experience to get better at selling and closing, and if I look back at my time in sales, other than the COVID bonanza on income the last few years, if I haven’t been continually improving my skills, it’s on me…not our inventory, market, etc. ❑ …
