Go School is open for business! I'm taking my first class there tomorrow and I can't wait! I know, I've always been a school geek. I take classes just because I like to, but that's what makes this so great! These are not your everyday real estate classes. OK, some of them are, but not in a traditional setting or style. You really need to visit this school to truly get the vibe. This picture of our fearless leader, Jim Garman sharing his latest vision, does not do the room justice. The walls are painted, the artwork is up, the granite top, glass backsplash and whiteboard are in and the fridge is cooling the drinks now. Yes, the breakdancers have left the building too.
So why don't you join me tomorrow for "Off the Rails" class? Learn all about the process of helping your clients purchase new construction. Or pick another day and get your CE credits with "Broker's Gone Wild", a tutorial on how to NOT end up in the back section of the commission quarterly report. If you're not a Broker yet, why not become one? Yep, those classes are here too and the instructor Chris Barnette will not only keep it riveting, but sometimes he even uses Twitter polls so you can participate with your favorite hand held that you smuggled in anyway. Come on, you know you want to be one of first! Just click here Go School
For anyone who has gotten to know me and my business a bit over the last year or so, knows that I am a student of Networking. I've recently started gathering some facts, figures and personal experience into a little presentation for my #WomensPowerNetworking #CoffeeandContacts Chapter. As I continue to grow that presentation and refine it, I zero in on some very interesting articles and blogs. Today I came across this one: http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/10/the_serendipitous_entrepreneur.html
Networking has done wonders for my career and will continue to do so because I am a very social person and this is a great venue for me. If you actually take time to read this attached blog, you will realize that there are parts that don't or can't work for everyone. If I actually went to 8 networking events or meet ups per week, I would probably have some angry, neglected clients. Networking is all about doing what works for you and your schedule. I wholeheartedly agree with the author's sentiment that you never know what event will bring a good connection. I've actually cut down a bit on the regular networking for networking's sake events and am trying out other events or activities that simply interest me. It's proving to be a great idea and I'd love to meet with you to talk more about it!
