They have gone through job changes, life changes and delved in and out of many hobbies and somehow the weather still weaves in and out of their lives.

Conversational Breakthroughs

  • Publisher: Joe Stumpf of By Referral Only
  • Total Episodes: 14

I have a deep belief that all lasting change begins on the inside and works its way out. I believe that lasting success is a combination of doing the deep personal work and having a business philosophy that is in alignment with your core values. I believe that, ultimately, the business that will give you the most joy and profitability is the one that is based on referrals and repeat business. I believe that becoming a referable person may be one of the most rewarding and challenging quests that you’ll ever embrace. I believe that when you focus on developing yourself while creating the systems and structure in your business that make it easy and fun for others to introduce you to the people they care about, your work will become your play. I believe that the old model of cold calling and buying leads on the internet is a way of avoiding connection. I believe what Gary Vaynerchuk says, “You are first a media company and the backend of your business is selling real estate and helping people get loans.” I believe that dialogue skills are essential to mastery. I believe that the future of real estate is brighter than ever. I believe that the agents and lenders who will prosper the most are the ones that embrace the role of being a provider of all Home Services. I believe in community and being part of a group of like-minded people is the secret to sustainability. I believe that life is for learning and when we learn something, we integrate it, then teach it. I believe that every real estate agent and lender is the leader of a tribe. I believe that a tribe of 150 people has the capacity of referring over 50 transactions a year to you. I believe that “gardening” is a 10x more profitable than “farming.” I also believe that beliefs are changeable, you do what you do when you believe what you believe, and when you believe differently, you do differently. I believe that I have an important message that must be shared. I believe you will get what you need when you need it from my message.
