Proof You Don’t Value Your Time (And How To Fix It To Make More Money In 2022)


Here's an interesting question for you coming into the new year:

How many clients did you fire in 2021?

If the answer is zero, then that tells me as a coach that you don't take your time as seriously as you should.

You see, we all have a value of our time. And we can all figure it out quickly. We can take the 2000 hours an average agent works for a year and divide it by our gross income for last year. And you'll know exactly how much you're making per hour.

So if you made $100k, for instance, divide it by 2000, and you made about $50 per hour. If you made $200k, then you made about $100 an hour and so on.

Let's say that you're at the top, you know, you're doing $200k-$300k a year. Meaning, your time is worth $100-$150 an hour, which is very true for many of my coaching students (and even far more than that), but they're not saying "no" enough.

Here's what I mean:

If you have somebody that's wasting an hour of your time and your...

5 Time Management Tips to Maximize Your Productivity


You’re on the right track, or so it seems, you have defined your career purpose, set up goals in line with your purpose and you have even established a daily priority plan. Now effective time management should just take care of itself, right? 

Wrong! Because as you become more productive you may find that inevitably you will be forced to make choices. Choices that when made properly will lead you to even greater heights, or when made poorly will lead you to a career crash. 

Jane for instance is a good example. Jane is a composite character made up of thousands of real estate agents from around the country. Let’s look at Jane’s career: 

Jane has recently made some huge changes in her career, these changes have supercharged her prospecting skills and her presentation skills - so now several things are happening to her that have never happened before. First she has too many clients, so she feels pulled into many directions at once. Second she can feel...

Are You Over Scheduled and Underpaid?

Are you over scheduled and underpaid? 

During a recent podcast on Inspired Forward my friend with host Dan Trinidad we discussed some of the biggest mistakes we’re committing that makes it hard for us to have fulfilling personal lives and the best business we can have? As well as how we can build wealth so that we don’t have to stay in production longer than necessary? 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • We won’t always find alphas to hire, but we can train and coach
    Alphas are quite rare. Most people aren’t, so when we hire them, we have to help them, coach them, educate them to reach their full potential.

  • Build your business around your life
    This is business planning season, and as we think about how 2020 is going to look, we have to start with our lives, families and personal goals. After that, we can add our business goals into the picture, and create a system that allows for more balance in our lives.

Three Reasons Why You Should Never Say You Are "Soooo Busy"


We have all said the words "I am soooo busy!"  

But is this the best response when someone asks you how you are doing or how is it going? No, in fact there are three key reasons why you may want to avoid using this language when talking with your sphere of influence, your clients, or even a family member. 

1) Bragging - If you are busy and the person you are talking with isn't they may feel inadequate or even embarrassed about their level of success. This can cause disconnection or even professional jealousy. 

2) Bothered - Because you are "soooo busy" some clients may decide not to burden you with more referrals or even direct real estate business. Many real estate veterans have had clients tell them "I just didn't want to bother you." Don't let this happen to you!

3) Disorganized - Often people who are overwhelmed, chaotic, or say that they are "soooo busy" can come across disorganized and out of balance.  This can be a turn off for clients who want an...
