Make the Appropriate Shifts....
I had the opportunity this week to listen to motivational speaker, Walter Bond. If you ever have the opportunity to see him I would highly recommend that you go.
One of the statements that he made while talking about mastering the fundamentals was, "Make the Appropriate Shifts". When he made this statement he also said that we need to be "flexible" in our business.
Well, you might say, this is nothing more than a fundamental in business. Ok then, if that is the case, am I flexible when it comes to my business? Am I looking for other sources of business? If I am a listing agent do I need more listings or should I be looking for more buyers? Am I learning more about short sales and what it takes to become an expert in this area? What am I doing to prevent me from becoming just another statistic? Or on the other hand am I just coasting, waiting for a turn around to happen overnight?
We need to begin making the appropriate shifts in our business in an effort to be ready for the turn around. It may take on getting more education in different areas so we can be the expert and are able to talk to our clients in a more professional manner. This way we become known as the source to go to when they have a question. Now is the time to become really, really good as well as be ready for the changes before they happen.
As the purging in the business continues will you be one of its victim? Or is your attitude one that says, "If there is a purging in the industry it won't be me"?
See you in the new market!
