Sometimes You Need ALL of The Minutes
Wow! How about those Seahawks? Football fan or not, Monday’s game against the 49’ers was one for the record books.
Talk about excitement – to win in the last second of overtime is amazing.
There were some great takeaways from that game. The biggest one of which is – sometimes you need ALL of the minutes allowed.
Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away. It’s easy to write off the last few weeks of the year as we get distracted with our own personal lives and our clients start to do the same.
But there is still time left to make things happen. Don’t give up or make assumptions about what will or won’t happen.
Here are some great ways to maximize the rest of the year:
- Mark the time you want to take off in your calendar. We all need time off, just be clear about when you are and aren’t working.
- Next decide what days you are going to work. It’s not always about working more days, it’s about making the days you work count.
- Find ways to connect – it’s all about FLOW and this time of year it gets a lot easier because there are so many things going on.
- Look at your systems and presentation materials. This is a great time of year to update them if you aren’t super busy.
- Spend some time getting clear on your ideal client and ways to connect with them.
If you check out now assuming you will get back to it in January you are going to be in for a rough 2020. I can pretty much guarantee (from experience unfortunately) that it takes longer to ramp back up than we think it does. Which means it will be March before you feel like you have any traction.
So have some fun and use your minutes.
To your success!

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
