I am an avid believer that to be great I must stand on the shoulders of giants – learn from the mistakes of others – and have role models in my life. I am also an avid believer that good is the enemy of great.
So, here is my dilemma…
Derek and I are in the process of building our real estate team again (long story …) and although we are on the right track, staying busy and doing very well, I believe in having mentors and role models for everything
we do if we want to succeed in anything. So, we have been searching for a local role model … But …
Most agents in my market are either heavy hitters with old school business models or just “good” agents.
While neither type of agent is inherently bad, neither agent is a type of agent that I would choose as a role model.
I am a great real estate agent and I will be a great real estate agent. I have uber-lofty goals and expectations of my business. I have super high standards and strict ethical stances.
So, I refuse to old-school myself to goodness. I would rather new-school myself to greatness.
So, how do I find a role model that shares my business-belief system yet is further advanced in their business (through new school methods) and can offer me a model that I can shape my growing business after?
I hate to pose a question without potential answers. But, I ALSO know that there are some super successful … GREAT agents out in the blogosphere that may be able to help me (and others facing this dilemma).
