If you believe in not siding with any party in an attempt to remain neutral, please stop reading. This post is a post that has been on my mind which is about being yourself and doing what makes you happy. I was 22 when I bought my first home. My parents told me not to buy that home, 5 years later it was the best thing I ever bought when I sold it. I was told you CAN’T say your a Christian believer that Jesus Christ is your savor on your real estate website; I’ve sold houses to Christians and made really good friends in and around the industry because of it. I was told flat out, find a job that more steady that real estate, something safer; however I love living on the edge. I even doubted myself when I thought my family couldn’t afford to tithe; my wife thought otherwise and we do. I was told not a buy a used Cadillac as they don’t hold up; I still drive it to this day.
I love being myself. It’s not about always pleasing other people including the customers in your business. I had a prospect call me a year ago. He asked me questions up and down that was raising red flags left and right, my gut feeling told me to hang up on him; I did. I was told I was too young to be in the real estate business, I’m still young and still in it today. Russell Shaw stated himself, if his team goes on a 1,000 listing appointments, he’ll take 500 of them. Wow. I believe in myself and I believe in my decisions, and that’s exactly what I want you who is reading this right now to believe. Greg Swann is an Author and Eric Blackwell is an seo guru, relationship builder. We all make mistakes, (liking hanging up on a call in), but the point is this, believe in yourself and BE YOURSELF.6 comments
