• You have to do the things you don't feel like doing -- and you have to do them at the highest level.
  • Stop waiting for Willy Wonka's golden ticket. Building wealth takes time.
  • Universal lead follow-up rule: Always pick up the phone rather than email.

Experience matters, which is why more experienced agents earn more. It doesn’t necessarily have to be your own experience, though.

If you’re open and receptive to the life experiences that other agents share with you, you can avoid some of the more difficult lessons and keep your career on the fast-track to success.

Let’s face it: we all have stories to share about lessons we learned the hard way. As coaches, we’ve heard countless stories from thousands of agents, and we’re going to share those with you today.

Isaac Newton once famously said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

You do not have to go through all these challenging situations yourself. Tune in to today’s show (especially if you missed parts one and two) and make better choices by learning from agents who have gone before you.
