Your Million Dollar Year Day 32 Thought Leaders group is not a new idea and it has value. Getting together a group of professionals discussing the profession, its rules and regulations, tips and techniques and more will always be a worthwhile spending of time. Most agencies call this MasterMinding. One franchise demands you attend a group of your financial peers rather than having an opportunity to hear from a tier above you or above that. The goal is for those who are good at what they do have a chance to share that knowledge and to discuss it with those in the room. A mind is a mind, a group of minds becomes the Master Mind. You will always learn more in a group of like minded, open people. I am putting together such a group of people in my area right now. Here are some topics I was thinking about and I look for your thoughts and ideas.
- Zillow, Redfin and other technology companies offering services at a reduced commission for reduced services.
- eXp and Compass with VC money buying market share and changing the Agent/Agency model by lowering caps and reducing fees.
- Technology innovations that have flooded the market and are confusing the consumer
- Historical Moments we can learn from; For instance there was a Broker Group that met in Brookline and Newton in the 1980’s. Top agents from all the companies were represented in round table discussions about the industry.
Here is a script I wrote up to attract people I don’t know personally yet, to this group.
I am calling you because (name something complimentary about the person that demonstrates your feelings and knowledge of them individually) and I respect your opinions. We are starting this monthly get together of people who are productive and are thought leaders concerned about the industry and the profession. I know you are one of these people.
Whether you can come tomorrow at (name the place) or not, I would like to put you in this list. We are going to share this on a google doc so we have access to the discussion I am grateful you will join us. Thank you. Your Million Dollar Year Day 32 Thought Leaders
