• Experienced agents are typically more successful than green ones -- because they make decisions based on countless life and career lessons they've already learned.
  • In real estate, these lessons are plentiful if you seek out that knowledge, and you don't have to go through the pain of learning them all yourself.
  • Here are 10 big lessons that can truly improve or derail your career, depending on the choices you make in your business.

Experienced agents are typically more successful than green ones — because they make decisions based on countless life and career lessons they’ve already learned. In real estate, these lessons are plentiful if you seek out that knowledge, and you don’t have to go through the pain of learning them all yourself, but a lot of agents still insist on learning the hard way.

Today, we’re discussing 10 things that most agents seem to insist on learning the hard way. For the open-minded folks in our audience, for the agents who are not complacent and who are willing to learn from the experience of countless agents that we’ve helped in coaching, then these are lessons that you don’t learn first-hand.

While these career-changing lessons are all around us, we’re going to look at 10 big ones that can truly improve or derail your career, depending on the choices you make in your business.

Remember, “A smart man learns from his own mistakes — a wise one learns from the mistakes of others,” or as Big Tom Callahan would say, “I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull’s ass, but I’d rather take a butcher’s word for it.”

Don’t go through the pain of making your own mistakes — tune in to today’s episode and learn from the experience of others! Think of it like this: They went through it so you don’t have to.
