Working in the sales industry, our lives revolve around numbers. There are goals to hit, numbers to meet and metrics to exceed from the prior year. When you decide work in a field based on input and output, your world seems to naturally become checks and balances. However, when your day to day is outlined down to the minute of goals to hit and numbers to crush, it can become impersonal. This is a hazard of the job. Ironically enough, we are not selling post-its or any other inanimate objects that have no emotional or personal ties to the consumer. We are helping people buy and sell homes. Between the 8 of us on our real estate team, we come in contact with dozens of people on a weekly basis that are downsizing because they are now empty-nesters, newlyweds buying their first home, and even new parents unexpectedly having their third child and are in need of more yard space for their growing family. We also deal with couples divorcing and needing to sell the home they have built together ...

Brace yourself!!! This is a long one…
There are days we all have that it can be difficult to find something to happy about. Something I focus on every day is finding something to be thankful for, regardless of how small that “thing” might be. I have since implemented gratitudes into my businesses by having a meeting every morning at 8:45 where we all share gratitude. This ensures that everyone that I work with can find that “1 thing” to be thankful for and do our best to start the day off right. We call this our Gratitude Huddle.
Another thing I am grateful for our The Peeps that work with me. I truly have an amazing team and feel blessed that I have the privilege to work beside them every single day.
Part of my Vision statement says “Have this business being family oriented so that every team member is valued and all members have potential to grow to the level they desire” and we definitely are living this o ...

What You Focus On Expands
Seems silly…..why does anything need to expand in my life?
How would your world change if all your energy went into 1 action that drastically changed your quality of life in more than one way?
Gary Keller wrote the book titled The 1 Thing which explains that we need 1 action item to focus on so that by doing it will make everything else easier or unnecessary. He teaches us to do this in 7 different aspects of our life: Spiritual, Physical Health, Key Relationships, Personal, Job, Business, and Finances.
My 1 Thing for business is: “Through Culture Increase Growth, Production, and Profitability”. The reason I chose this statement is to put my focus on running The Howard Group like a business and not just selling real estate. My drive to work is not to help people buy and sell real estate (although I do enjoy the process) rather it is to help people develop a career that they love. ...
