Here are a few tricks (and treats) for getting ahead of next year’s lead generation plan this October.

While most people think of goblins and ghouls as October approaches, I advise agents to prepare for the new year.

You’re probably wondering, “Why so early?”

Because it’s not realistic to think that the time we normally spend with family and friends over the holiday season can just magically be redirected to an all-out, no-holds-barred focus on business.

O.G. agents know neglecting family and friends, as well as downtime, can lead to burnout, breakdowns, blow-ups and flaring resentments.

That’s just drama waiting to happen, I’m sure you’d rather avoid it.

So, that means October (September, if you can really get ahead of the curve!) is the time to get ready for a productive new year.

To get ahead of the holidays and start trick-or-treating #adultstyle, listen in to my 2020 prospect planning video above. You can complete the whole thing in 10 minutes, if you download the worksheet below.
