YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PRACTICE REAL ESTATE TODAY AND BEYOND
Many of us can remember the musical group called the "Beastie Boys." One of their most popular songs were "YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY." It came out in 1987. This song has taking on a new meaning for myself. The song had a nice beat and we could relate to the lyrics at that time. However, the message to the song was that young people have to fight for the right to party regardless of responsibilities in life. Again, this is my opinion.
Now, let's change the message to the following new title "YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PRACTICE REAL ESTATE TODAY AND BEYOND." Nobody ever gave me a free hand out when I entered the real estate business in 2002 after being let go from Corporate America during 9/11 incident. I had FIGHT FOR MY RIGHT TO PRACTICE REAL ESTATE THEN, NOW AND BEYOND. Let freedom ring among us. We are guaranteed the right to pursuit happiness but it is not guaranteed. Many real estate agents get into this business with an entitlement mind set. Come on! We have witnessed these agents throughout our life time. Many of them refuse to do even the real estate basics to obtain new business. They want everything handed to them.
I sought out a mentor for the first 18 months of my real estate career. I knew that I would have to learn from somebody who has been in the real estate business and that person needed to close deals. I wanted to learn how to do the following from a mentor
- Develop business
- Maintain business
- Close deal$
I brought many skills to the table when I entered real estate such as
- 12 years of management
- Graduate degree in information technology
- Sales-fellow NYer I talk to everyone
- Humble spirit I do not know everything and being a good student
I have learned that REAL ESTATE IS TRULY A TEAM SPORT over the last ten years of my real estate career. I have developed and continue to create an outstanding team. Furthermore, we all have networks as individuals. However, the power comes when we combine all of our networks into ONE. This is when we refer business to one another and do not break the circle. I have gained much success in being true and loyal to my real estate network. The boxer "ALI" was the world champion. This we know is true because he tells us daily. The real truth is that he had many people that helped him to get to that point in his life. He had to fight for his right to be the "CHAMPION IN THE WORLD." Today, he is still fighting for his life. The fighting spirit never dies from within as we can witness in Ali. Do you have the same spirit when it comes to real estate?
YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PRACTICE REAL ESTATE TODAY AND BEYOND KICK IT!
