Question for all who read this: to succeed at any business venture, you merely need to have huge resources, dedicated personnel, and a quality product or service, right? From there, it’s just collecting money and living a good life. This presumption is more common than you realize, and could not be more wrong and misguided. In a world where exponential change and digital disruptions abound, you simply cannot rest on your laurels and merely rely on what you’ve already built. Because of the rapidly accelerating rate of change, your business is only ever as strong as its next innovation. The goal should be longevity and significance over success, not merely one big payout and coasting down a hill, using reactionary mindsets and agility as needed to dodge obstacles while you coast. So if this aforementioned mindset is not the key to a successful and, more important, significant business, what is? An Anticipatory mindset is the…

Will the different generations of home buyers get what they want during the changing real estate market trends?  Homebuyers are welcoming in a positive shift because more houses are becoming available for sale with even more coming before the end of 2021.  The extra supply of homes for sale is slowing the still-rising prices of homes across the country. The median home price in June 2021 was up 12.7% --down from 15.2% in May 2021.  The measure of median home prices over the last year have been skewed because most of the homes sold were in prices above $500,000 to over 1,000,000 dollars.  Aspiring home buyers had to work harder to find homes in the lower price ranges.  That trend is making a turnaround.  More newly listed properties are smaller and less expensive compared to last year.  Younger homebuyers have a better chance of snapping these homes up.

Here we are at the end of August, two thirds of the way through 2021 and we have about 90 days left to generate opportunities that will pay us in 2021. The most important things to focus on are where you are now, and what you need to do to complete the year strong and move into 2022 with momentum.  With an increase in both purchase and refinance applications last week, 3% on purchase and 1% on refinance, we get the news that home inventories are up better than 5%. All opportunities to make yourself focus on what you can do to get in front of business. Now is a great time to review every pre-approval you have issued this year but didn’t close. Are they still looking, are they taking a break, or did they close with someone else? The first two present an opportunity to help move them…

In 1927, Dr. Frank Crane wrote a wonderful book entitled Everyday Wisdom, which made quite a hit. Crane was a speaker, columnist, and preacher who had an impressive following. I acquired his books years ago and have admired him as a common-sense writer who influenced many. I love his quote, “You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough.” Here are excerpts from Everyday Wisdom…. Today the business ideal is the “go-getter” who smashes his way through obstacles as if they were papier-mache scenery. The great difference between men, between the feeble and the powerful, the great and the insignificant, is an invincible determination, a purpose once fixed, then Death or Victory. That quality can do anything that can be done in this world. The man who never gives up what he begins until it is completed is the one…

How can you be sure your messages are really getting heard? Noted business consultant, Michael Hammer, once said, “The number one problem in communications today is the illusion that it has taken place!” You may find that no matter what you do or how you do it, just sending messaging in any format does not guarantee you will actually get through to actually connect. In a “normal” world, people are constantly barraged with multiple interruptions on every level, whether it is their being notified on their phone, an instant message, and even their watch! It’s these constant notifications that fracture not only their time, but steal their attention away from your attempts to communicate.  The challenge is: What else can you do to be heard? In this unprecedented time of physical “distancing” there is remarkable creativity that is born from being restricted.  It is proving that what we really want,…
