In today’s virtual, work-from-home environment, agents are seeking training and coaching in entirely new ways. In August, we’re laser-focused on what defines good coaching today and how to get the most out of it.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

We’ve all experienced that moment — when something clicks into place, when a light bulb turns on, when motivation kicks into high gear. And it’s all because of something someone said. Whether you sought it out or not, throughout your career, you’ve likely been given a nugget of wisdom that you still remember now.

Maybe it was from a real estate veteran friend, who’s had his or her fair share of experience dealing with bad luck and failure. Maybe it was from your team leader, who knows a thing or two about getting started as a newly minted agent. Or perhaps it was from your coach, who guided you through a major career decision.

This week, we want to know what’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever heard, how it helped you, and how it still holds true today. Also, share who gave it to you. Was it your friend, leader, coach or mentor?

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
