Season 2 is getting closer and closer and I'm excited to let my listeners know that this coming season will be totally different from the first.  You might have noticed that Season 1 was a little more educational and discussed some of the basics of First-Time Buyers or Sellers.  In Season 2, I found some great guests to tell you what they did well, mistakes they made, and how you can make the buying or selling process much easier. 

If you think you have a great story or something that you would love to pass along to our listeners, contact me here.  

Upcoming Segments!

Hey NewTimers! I want you to know that every week I plan unique segment ideas that are catered to you! We will continue to post 3 times a week for new buyers, sellers, and Realtors.  On top of this, we're continuing the NewThoughts Segment with new reads, and ideas to sharpen your goals.  

I know that creating a successful business is only part of the equation.  Like Clay Winder mentioned in Episode 10, we have to focus on the people who make our transactions happen in the first place.  Life is about growing and using that growth and success to benefit others.  So twice a month, we will post a segment called, "Soul Estate," where I sit down with the top organizations who are using Real Estate in some way to give back to the community and those who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity. 

The first Soul Estate segment posts this Sunday, April 22! Be sure to listen! 

And Don't forget to leave a 5-star rating and review the show on iTunes or your favorite, "pod-catcher."

"You Can't Always Get What You Want." A Tip From Taylor, on how to Negotiate, taken from the Rolling Stones.

Hey NewTimers! 

This week, we had some amazing new episodes posted to the podcast.  The second part of my interview with Taylor was even better than the first! 

Taylor's biggest key's to success in Negotiating were looking for a Win-Win for each party, and following the PLATINUM rule, not the golden.  We all know the golden rule, " Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," but the Platinum, is " Treat others how they want to be treated."  Surprisingly, to most new negotiators, you actually don't need to be a jerk! Be professional and be yourself, and you will always find a Win-Win for your clients.
