Stop using 'I'm busy' as an excuse

We get it -- you're important
  • I hate getting the "I'm busy" excuse. We are all busy.
  • If you are always so busy, maybe you haven't figured out your niche yet.
  • My time is valuable, so I am careful how I spend it.

Spring is the busy time of year, especially in real estate and everyone is busy — or, at least, that is what people say. Being busy doesn’t necessarily mean making money, but if I were to tell someone that I’m busy, they would congratulate me.
