Out of focus.
Sometimes in life, you need to step back from what you’re doing and look at the big picture. With all that’s been going on in my life, I’ve been doing plenty of self-evaluation, some personal and some business related. In the business related category, I’ve been going through my goals and seeing what I can do to make them happen. In my personal self-evaluation – well you can guess where most of that is focused at the moment. Of course, AgentGenius is part of my business side. Not only does it allow me to interact with agents all across the country, but it also gives me time to test theories in my head and argue the case for what I believe. It makes me think more about real estate and the ideas behind it, so that not only can I write a new post for The Stigliano Chronicles, but also for my own learning and growth.
In going through the focus of my posts at AgentGenius, I realize at times I can get off track a bit. My goal is to talk about “new agent” topics and bring my experiences to the table. Although I’m not displeased with any of the off topic posts, I want to refocus my goals and try to move back to thinking of life as a new agent and discussing the ups, downs, and all arounds with you. Although AgentGenius has readers of all experience levels, my job is to speak to the newer agents and give my thoughts, lessons, and ideas. Of course, the more experienced agents have more than once learned a thing or two from something I wrote, and they often chime in to lend their experience to the conversations that take place in the comments.
What’s on your mind?
So as I try to refocus, one thing kept popping into my head: Who’s out there and what do they want to talk about? I know you’re here, I know you’re reading, so why not help be a part of The Stigliano Chronicles and tell me what your issues are? What do you wonder late at night? What successes or failures have you seen or learned from? What makes you frustrated because you can’t seem to wrap your head around it? What do you want to know?
By focusing back on you, the reader, I think I can redefine my role as an AgentGenius contributor. Feel like you’re not new because you’ve been in the business a year or more? Doesn’t matter. You can always be a new agent – it’s not a dirty word around here. One thing I learned early on here at AgentGenius, where I read the words of much more experienced writers and agents, was that even the people I put on real estate pedestals are learning too. Some of the people I respect most in the business come here to learn and discuss things they may not have thought about before.
You should know by now that I’m always eager to write and experience new things. With that in mind, help me push The Stigliano Chronicles in the directions that you need and want it to go.
