Are you running your real estate career...

By
Real Estate Agent with keller Williams Realty Preferred Realty

As a business or just running as fast as you can hoping that it is working?  I hope that your answer isn't the latter! As a trainer and coach for agents, too many times I discover that they know it is a business , try to set it up to run like one, but never quite get it.  You can't build a beautiful well built home without a blueprint so what makes you think that you can build a successful real estate career without one?

My advice for 2010, get a business plan in place now and then write the action plan to work it successfully.  Be realistic and don't set your goals so high you can't attain them, but do aim high enough to reach them.  Start with how much money you want to make, how much did you make this year..Now if you want to make the same amount of income or more income, then figure out what you need to do.  Are your expenses going to be the same or have they changed. Do you need to run mean and lean or are you able to spend more next year...  All important questions to ask your self.

If you have never done a business plan, find out where you can go to learn how to do one.  I know Keller Williams offices around the country are holding one day courses, anyone can attend, check in your area.
