Empowering Professionals: March 2011

What got you to 50 deals, may hinder you on your path to 100!

ModelsModelsHave you ever thought about what got you to where you are today?  And what it will take you to get to where you want to go someday? 

You created tools, and systems to help you streamline the processes that you use on a daily basis to achieve the successes that you have obtained.  Those tools that are helping you right now, but they may not be what you need to reach the next level in your success...

Looking at it another way...  Some of us can "wing it" when it comes to business, and even make it look like there is structure...  When business begins to get crazy, those crazy things you did to get to where you are, can actually break you...

As you get busier, your lead generation tactics may need tweaking, as you no longer have time to door knock...  As you sign more listings, your time to show buyers property diminishes...  As your phone starts to ring off the hook, you no longer have the time to answer all of the calls that you used to generate new business from...

Models are systems based on the successes of others before you...  So think if the "imitation" as the ultimate form of flattery...  Follow the path of people that have had success, in helping set up the business heights that you are trying to achieve this year. 

So continue to evaluate and re-evaluate your business structure, to be sure you are prepared for the next level in your career.  And know that change is the only thing constant in life.

Has there ever been a time that your "same-old" systems actually caused your business to suffer as you got busier?  Please share!
