Every successful real estate agent, new or old, has a solid business foundation upon which they’ve built their business. This foundation may have been carefully planned and executed when the agent first got into the business, or it may have been carefully curated over time, slowly growing over the course of their career.
By establishing solid “Pillars of your Business”, any agent will find the path to success in real estate. It doesn’t matter if you’re fresh to the business, or if you’ve been in the business for 40 years, it always pays to take an introspective look into your business plan on a regular basis, and patch it up as needed.
What we’re starting on today’s show is the first part of a multi show segment on establishing the pillars of your business. We’re going to be covering many pillars over the course of many weeks.
