A Message for Real Estate Agents - Stop Overpaying for Coaching

Real estate agents need to stop overpaying for coaching. I see it everyday, and I at one time was a "cog in the wheel". The two areas I see the greatest violations is in group and one-on-one coaching.

Group coaching is typically offered in brokerages as a don't pay me now, you can pay me later type of scenario. Agents sign contracts that can range 6 - 12 months in length paying out 5% - 10% of their commissions back to the coach. Overtime this can add up to $1,000s. Brokerages behind the curtains make a very small investment into their coaches banking on the coach generating a salary through commissions collected. A self-sustaining model, that allows the broker owners to be more profitable. In other words, the cost of having a coach provided in an office is passed to the agents.

In the one-on-one coaching scenario, programs for weekly coaching can start at a $1,000 a month for a 12 month commitment. What most coaching...

Don't Let Time Slip By Unaccounted for in Your Business

Today is January 16th. Nothing special about this day other than the fact it is National Nothing Day. What today does represent is that there are only 350 days left this year? (This is a leap year so there are 366 days.)

How are you tracking on your goal? If you're not checking in on a regular basis, before you know it, time passes. Time moves a lot faster than we think. It is the only thing that happens consistently, and you can't get back. In fact, as you read this time is passing.

Don't let time slip by unaccounted for in your business. If you're not tracking on goal, get into action. At this time of year, it is easier to catch up with your goal because there is still time. The longer you wait to get on track, the more difficult it will be to make up lost ground.

Making a decision today to get into action will make the next 350 days fruitful. Choose not to get into action, rot like an apple. It is really that...

Coach Jeremy's Pet Peeves

I was asked yesterday, "Jeremy what is your biggest pet peeve as a coach?" I've never been asked that question in my now 10 years of coaching up real estate agents, I had to pause for a moment.
 
The first thing that came to mind was having a coaching appointment, or a prospective business strategy call scheduled, and someone not showing up. While that can get under my skin, as I thought about it more, this would be my #2. My #1 is knowing that people need my help, and having several conversations with people that need help, and because of one of the following (pride, ego, or not understanding the power of coaching), they choose to keep doing the same thing over and over netting the same results. BTW - this is the definition of insanity.
 
I am inviting you to connect with me if you're in that place where you feel like you haven't had the breakthrough, or you have that feeling like you're...

Somebody Had to be Great, Why Not Me? | Deshaun Watson Houston Texans

In light of the Houston Texans win against the Buffalo Bills, and the big game today against Kansas City Chiefs, this quote jumped out to me last week in his post game interview.

"Somebody has to be great, why not me?" - Deshaun Watson (The Houston Houdini)

Over the years, I've seen so many point to others when they don't perform to their capabilities. You've probably too heard the following (hopefully not living this...):

"It's their fault for me not living out my potential."

"It's a bad market, and everyone else is not doing so hot."

"This would have been successful on my account, and this person screwed it up."

I could list out more, and I know you get the idea. Lord knows, I've had periods in my life where that was my attitude. Here in lies what is so refreshing about Deshaun's comment. He chose to take it upon himself, as the leader of the team, despite the circumstances, to lead his team to victory. He chose to be great...
