10 Tips To Double Your Business In 2010: Tip 5
Today’s tip is to meet new people
Being a successful business person requires that you meet new people and grow your sphere on a regular basis. This can be intimidating, especially if you are introvert, but there are lots of ways to do it and not hyperventilate in the process.
Here are a couple of ideas:
~ Chances are there are people in your life that you are already connected to that you have not brought into your Real Estate circle. Friends, neighbors, people from various groups that you are in, etc. I’m not saying that you should go out and basically ‘spam’ everyone that you know with real estate stuff, but you can build those relationships and include them in your circle over time. My general rule of thumb is that each time I have a meaningful business conversation with someone then I add them to the list for my mailings, etc.
~ Join groups that pertain to your hobbies. Do what makes you happy ~ join a running group, take yoga classes, cooking classes, book club, etc. Not only will you be doing something that makes you happy, but you will also be connecting with people that have similar interests which will just help to increase the bond between you.
~ Get involved with the community. Volunteer on committees that interest you. The Boys and Girls Club, arts organizations, etc are great ways to be involved.
~ When you are at a function with a group of people, make it a point to have a conversation with someone new rather than the same group that you talk to over and over again.
The great part about selling real estate is that EVERYONE is interested in it so it will always work itself into the conversation. Your job is to be present in the conversation and truly connect to the person you are talking to. The old adage is still true, that in order to be interesting you need to be interested in others. Find out what makes them tick and you will be well on your way to expanding your database with great new clients

I posted a reel on instagram this week that got a surprising amount of feedback. Surprising in how grateful people were to finally have someone admit the truth. You don’t have to be part of the 5am club to be successful. Did your shoulders relax just a little when you read that? I hope so.…Read More
You know those agents – the lucky ones whose clients magically show up, and they always seem to be having fun while posting sales and having a life. The type of agent you wish you could be – someday. What if YOU could be that person right now?? On the outside, luck can look like…Read More
This is your reminder to keep going and trust that things will work. It’s easy to be impatient and want to know how the story ends. Because if we know that, then we can get there faster and avoid making mistakes along the way. But that’s not how it works. And sometimes the mistakes are…Read More

I was chatting with someone this week who mentioned that they were spending this week journaling, planning and deciding what they want to create in 2024. Sounds awesome! But their last comment got me – I know I should have done this sooner, but… Sooner says who? It got me thinking about all of the…Read More
Ideally it’s both. But somewhere between the joy of dreaming into new goals, and attaching metrics (ie the how) things can go from creative to confining. In the ‘what if’ space – it’s easy to be creative. At this point the possibilities are endless. There is no right or wrong, pass or fail. Actions and…Read More

Seems like a simple question. Of course the reflex answer is yes. I can absolutely have anything I want. But deep down do you believe it? I just came back from a few days of business planning with 3 amazing agents. When we get together we go deep. It’s WAY beyond what we want our…Read More
Today is December 1st. Which means 2024 is right around the corner. No sooner do we finish celebrating the accomplishments from this year – we reset the counters to zero and look to create something new.

I’m over here at my Dad’s still this week. I’ll be here for a total of 11 days. I love the time with him, but his internet is the WORST. I’m actually using my phone as a hot spot to write this post because the internet is so unstable. I’m all for taking time to…Read More
