It’s Time to Ditch the Pitch ….
When I got into real estate, I was bombarded with old-school ideas about SELL SELL SELL! This included awkward “scripts” and lessons on how to “close people.” The prescription for success also included handing out business cards at events, dialling for dollars, and jumping out of my skin every time the phone rang.
I decided that I was going do things differently as a real estate agent, no matter what the gurus were saying. And if I couldn’t make a living by doing it my way, then I would quit and do something else.
I’m still here. And I want to share how it is that I’ve been successful… by doing the OPPOSITE of what’s being preached to not only real estate agents but ALL business professionals trying to get ahead in this noisy, competitive, quick-fix world we live in.
How to Achieve Untouchable ‘Reputation Capital’
You CAN build a rewarding business career by ditching the pitch and focusing 100% on delivering lasting value. But it takes courage. You must be willing to set a new professional standard for yourself …and for your clients. And when you find your groove, the payoff is beyond your wildest dreams.
