Now What? Where Do We Go From Here?
Wow! Talk about stepping into a bigger version of yourself! Last week was definitely that for me. I had the honor of being the emcee and a speaker at Windermere’s e3 event. Not only did I get to step into a bigger version of me, I was able to see others do the same as they bravely raised their hand to speak and share with their peers.
Moments like that are amazing. To experience it with 250 other people was magical.
And then I came home – and did laundry.
Such is the ebb and flow of life.
It got me thinking about the moments in our business that are like that. You win the listing, go under contract, close a transaction. All big moments. Maybe it’s the most expensive property you’ve ever sold or you’ve now made more than you ever have before. You’re stepping into a bigger version of yourself. It feels awesome! And then there is the real world moment that follows it that reminds you that it’s just another Friday.
For me, I was lucky enough to have the experience of stepping up and sharing it with others. For most of us, though, it’s a moment in time experienced alone. Which makes it equal parts amazing and anti climactic. It can leave us wondering if it ever really happened. Better yet, can we reproduce it?
I’ve been hosting a mastermind for a group of agents for the last 7 months and we had our last meeting this week. After 7 months we’ve gotten to know each other pretty well, and this week we went deep. Yes, we talked business, but more than that everyone share – REALLY shared where they are at with life. And as a group we were able to witness each other in our moments. To hold the space, let them know they aren’t alone. It was powerful.
Both moments illustrated the power of coming together. Not only the power of it, but how essential it is.
And so that is my wish and my encouragement to you. Find your tribe. Those that encourage you to step into a bigger version of yourself and to be there to celebrate, support and encourage you.
To your success!

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
I’m over at my Dad’s in Sandpoint, Idaho this weekend. For a variety of reasons I headed over early yesterday, like 5:45am early. I love the drive East, the beauty of the mountains, the way my shoulders relax when I hit the wide open spaces of Eastern Washington, all of it. Yesterday I drove into…Read More

When I was younger, I was laser focused on my goals. You couldn’t knock me off track if you tried. And then something changed. Looking back, I could ‘blame’ it on getting married and starting a family, saying they pulled my focus. But I KNOW that isn’t entirely true. I love Gary and my boys…Read More
