Your Million Dollar Year Day 45 Half Way to Somewhere. The goal is to start out my new year at a new agency doing all the things that should be done to make me successful. In these first 45 days I have done considerable and this success has only made me realize there is so much more to do, that can be done. I have aligned myself with top agents who have shown me their daily routines; they have shared their mindset and this has helped a great deal. Surround yourself with the best agents you can and listen, learn and apply.
At one of my former agencies I had many friends who I went out of my way to assist. I always answered their calls and emails. I shared tips and techniques, I taught classes and wrote marketing materials to help them. I left that office because they hired third toxic manager who had never closed any significant deal of any sort 13 closed sides in 9 years is not really a good agent. This “new team leader” came in to make her mark and her mark was the dissemination of the culture. I left and many others followed. She was fired and now they are on their fourth manager.
In an effort to help these people I have reached out to several of them to find my name and reputation was trashed after I left by this weak manager. When I found this out recently I shook my head. You can not stop people from talking. You can not defend the lies that are told in your absence. The best course of action is to move forward. There are always new people to talk to, always new agents to help. When I think of this I realize that there are so many more people I have helped and cared for and still do. It is these people I cherish so I feel I am halfway to success in every aspect of the business except the trash talking of people behind their backs. That is on them and it is easier to move on than to allow in the negative actions of those who are not positive and professional. Your Million Dollar Year Day 45 Half Way to Somewhere
