Trust The Process
It’s almost Christmas, and I’m spending the weekend with Gary and the boys taking in the sights downtown Seattle. I love these last 2 weeks of the year. Everything turns inward as the focus shifts from work to family, rest and relaxation.
Just like anyone else who runs their own business though, taking time off comes with a bit of angst. That little voice in the back of my head who says I should be “doing something” work related. I have to keep the train rolling.
Taking time off means that we have to trust the process, and that new clients will continue to show up.
This came up in our last mentorship session, and is the perfect mantra for the next few weeks.
At the time we were talking about making calls and wondering if they were doing any good. In that moment, you have 2 choices. You can focus on the doubt, which will spin you into a cul-de-sac of indecision and inaction. Or you can relax into it and trust the process.
*As we went around the table for a check in, those that trusted the process and made their calls had amazing success stories. Stories of new listings, million dollar buyers, and more. All from reaching out and connecting with their clients.
If you trust the process, and do core activities, the results will come. Guaranteed.
It’s consistency that makes them work, though. And that consistency will create momentum that allows you to take time off.
The tricky part with any system is that just like planting a garden, there is a time between when you plant the seed and it comes up through the ground where you wonder if it’s working.
This is where most agents give up.
Now is the time to trust the process. Stop trying to make it harder. Take a deep breath and know that you can do this.

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
This is one of the biggest things most agents are missing in their business. But if you’ve ever been a part of a great mastermind and have a solid tribe you know that it’s one of THE best things not only for your business, but for your soul. We aren’t meant to do this alone.…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
As we head into the last 2 weeks of the year Grace and Light are the 2 words that keep coming up. Whether this is your favorite time of the year, or one that you would be just as happy to skip – it’s a lot. It can be an intense time of celebration, reflection,…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. We list our goals, envision our future and formulate action plans. All necessary parts of the process. But what…Read More
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
