I know you get hit up as much as any other agent with offers for the latest, new-fangled thing that will ultimately “change your life” and “make you tons of money”!

Promises, promises

We, as real estate brokers, hear about what’s new all the time. As in, “you can buy this new thing for only $99 a month (or $400 a month or $1 a month) and then, with little to no effort on your part, this widget/service/app/product will change your business and you will be rich!”

Maybe it is more subtle (maybe not), but surely the message is familiar to you.

Isn’t it?

You know the answer already…

My question to you is… When is this ever true in life?

When do you we get to do little to nothing… and have it pay us back 10 fold?

Let me help you out if you’re stumped: NEVER!

Seriously, never.

So why get caught up in this stuff?

Why pay even 5o cents for something that will not yield a return for you?

Get it vetted and get to what works

I will challenge you to consider carefully ever spending money in your business that you haven’t vetted for proven results.

Also, and much more importantly, I would have you focus on the non-shiny things that do have proven results. You know, the work. The stuff no one else is doing… and watch as your business explodes.

What else works?

Continual, engaging, helpful, relevant education. The investment you want and need (and are required to get for your real estate license too).

That’s right… clock hours!
