Surviving your Serengeti - Hearing Stefan Swanepoel speak a few days ago!

Surviving your serengetiSurviving Your Serengeti

By: Stefan Swanepoel

I had the pleasure of attending Keller Williams Realty's Family Reunion(KW National Convention) this week...  And the keynote speaker was Stefan Swanepoel! 

He was speaking on this very subject! 

He spent several hours at his booth selling this book, taking pictures and signing autographs.

In listening to him speak, I started to think about what type of an animal I was... 

We breaked for lunch, and I finally noticed people wearing pins with alligators, and giraffes, and other animals...  I had no idea what they were for at first.  As I was sitting at the table, someone asked me what type of animal I was...  And if I took the test. 

I thought at first that the test was loooooong, but when I pulled it up on my iPhone, it took me about 5 minutes to answer the questions...

As I answered the final question, it was revealed that I was aa alligator...

As the rest of us started completing the test, we all came back the same...  All of us were alligators...

Then I remember Stefan speaking, and he said that a lot of Real Estate agents are in fact alligators... Soo, what were you?  This intrigued me to read the first two chapters...  I immediately went to amazon and purchased several for myself and my staff...  I can't wait to read the rest of the story.
