Professional development is as much a part of your job as listing properties and finding buyers.
Invest in yourself, improve your skills and get yourself ready for a huge end to the year.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best free resources that you can listen to, read or watch. No matter how much time you have between appointments, in the car or the local café, there’s something here for you.
Have Breakfast with Tony Robbins, Gary Vee or Tom Panos
Your smart phone is the gateway to some of the world’s best minds.
You can listen to Real Estate gurus like Tom Panos, through podcast, Facebook Live or YouTube. Be inspired and learn the tips and ideas to kick start your day. A short video while you have your first caffeine hit of the day might be just the thing you need to win that new client.
Tony Robbins’ Breakthrough app is a great one to have on your phone. The messages are bite sized so you can listen (or watch and listen) to Tony in action while you’re on the go. There’s even training programs such as ‘mastering influence’ that you can dip in and out of as you have the time to listen to modules. And it’s free.
Gary Vaynerchuk (Gary Vee to his online audience), has an edgy way to motivate people to action. This serial entrepreneur will have you chasing your dreams faster than you can say Gary Vaynerchuk. He has resources, blogs, podcasts and more on his website.
There really is no question that Google or YouTube can’t answer. Some of the best sales minds share resources for free on the internet and they are just a few key strokes away.
So if you have a burning question – type it in and find your answer. A general Google search will give you video answers as well as articles or websites, while a YouTube search will give you the top video results to watch or listen to, depending whether you’re in the car or not.
Top Sales Podcasts
Turn your drive time into learning time with these:
Ask your colleagues what they are listening to, or google “best real estate podcasts”.
A great way to make the most of your podcast listening time is to grab one to three ideas to takeaway, make a note of them (notes on your phone, a voice memo or in your diary – whatever works), and then follow up within a week.
If you like the old-school feel of a book, why not see if there are resources in the office, or ask your business buddies for their recommendations for the best self-development books.
According to success.com, there are 25 books for success that you must read, including:
- How to Win Friends or Influence People, Dale Carnegie
- The Richest Man In Babylon, George S Clason
- Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill
- The 9 Steps To Financial Freedom, Suze Orman
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey
BONUS TIP: Don’t forget you can get plenty of these as audio books. Try an app like Audible. You can download the books on your phone and listen at your leisure.
