Anyone who knows Don Hobbs well will tell you he doesn't do anything halfway. He's is an "all or nothing" kind of guy. But once Don shows interest in something, it quickly becomes a passion. Don's passionate approach to life is evident from afar. That passion is also what's made him one of the most highly respected figures in North America on the topic of real estate success and life training.
Don's career path began straight out of high school as a salesperson for personal growth giant, Jim Rohn. This is where his public speaking skills propelled him through the ranks, earning the title of Executive Vice President with Jim Rohn Productions within four years. In this role, Don was responsible for seminar operations, training and overseeing an entire sales force, as well as speaking on personal development and leadership to real estate agents on a regional basis.
After eight productive years with Jim Rohn, Don joined forces with Greg Herder to create Hobbs/Herder Advertising, an industry interrupter. This dynamic partnership transformed an industry, forming the "personal marketing" revolution in real estate. They taught agents how to market themselves to establish personal brand identity, catapulting income for many of their clients well into seven figures. Through this movement, Don became one of the great influencers in real estate. During the past 30 years, Don Hobbs has spoken for and had a very powerful and positive impact on almost 1 million real estate professionals, striving to help each one reach their true full potential. He has appeared in countless articles in a variety of publications, including The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times and his articles have appeared in Broker Agent News, Texas Realtor® and New Jersey Realtor®.
I wonder how many of my real estate friends and clients who earn high six, even seven figures incomes are really looking for love and true fulfillment in life, thinking that working harder is going to help. Don, having created great outer "Success" with the mansion, extravegant cars, and all the signs of success, found himself going through a separation and near life-devastating divorce. It was through this low point in his own life that Don realized how often what we see on the outside with people is not what is going on inside of these peoples' lives. Don says, "At my seminars, agents would stand in long lines to tell me I had changed their life. More accurately, I had helped them with their business, to create systems or to make more money. But life is so much more than that." Today, as passionate as ever about his mission to support people to live life at the highest levels, Don now helps transform limiting beliefs into fulfillment and success. Don shows agents how to unblock success and happiness, by discovering the issues which keep people from having the life they envision. Through his work with the S.O.U.L. Institute (http://soulinstitute.com/), Don and his mentor and Master Teacher, Esperanza Universal help people get to the heart of the limiting beliefs and self-destructive patterns which keep agents from peace, joy, love and abundance in business and all other areas of life!
Don's favorite hobby is fly-fishing, where he can be in the tranquility of nature. His journeys to fulfill this passion have taken him from the great white north of Canada all the way to the opposite hemisphere in So America, as well as Russia, England and other distant and beautiful destinations. He lives in Orange County, California with his wife, Barbara, and enjoys time with family.
