The 3 Biggest Misconceptions About Horizontal Leadership in Real Estate

What is Not Leadership Often leaders learn from books, podcasts, and blogs written by leaders who sell leadership trainings, books, or courses and it can kind of get boring. It can be hard to sift through the information on leadership and find things you didn't already know.  This is where inspiration is hard to come by. So to help you we have created a post of what leadership is not. There are three words often associated with leadership that actually are misconceptions of Horizontal Leadership and those three words are authority, followers, and servant.  The Big Misconception #1: Leaders have to have authority to lead.

Attracting Successes

Are you attracting successes to you?   Science has an explanation for understanding the harmonizing of desires that some call luck, coincidence, or manifestation of desires.  Atoms are made up of neutrons, protons, and electrons. Those units of matter are made up of quarks. Quarks have different important properties. These properties consist of electric charges, mass(weight), color charge (energy with different combinations), and spin (vibration). These units of matter are held together through electromagnetism.  "All matter at its basic units are energy, frequency, and vibration." Nikola Tesla.  Why is this important?  In relation to becoming the best version of yourself, thoughts are electrical waves in the form of frequency. Frequency carries information.

How to Eliminate Entitlement

A “How To Plan” For Parents of Spoiled Real Estate Children:  When I was younger, my neighbor had a crazy dog. Every day this dog would wait by the side of the road for vehicles to drive by. When a vehicle drove by, this crazy mutt would run down the road, barking and chasing everyone’s vehicle that drove by.  On one rainy day, I asked my neighbor “Do you think the dog is ever going to chase down one of  those vehicles?” My neighbor replied, “That’s not what worries me.

And What to Do About it.    A family was having a good time on the lake. It was a beautiful summer day.  The warm sun from the sunny summer sky beat down on my exposed arms covered in sunscreen.  “Summer is not my favorite season, but at moments like this take the trophy,” expressed Mr. Relaxed.  Resting on his boat he observed the kinetic chaos of boats that had turned the summer’s peacefulness into a commercial expression of fun!   The cloudless day was perfect to enjoy with the family. The light blue sky seemed to smile at the brilliant blue-green waves.  “It feels so picture-perfect,” said the little one.  After an exhilarating boat ride, the family parked the boat in a cove and enjoyed swimming, and eating their lunch.  A father, mother, and daughter sat down to enjoy lunch, their sweet little girl was holding two pieces of cantaloupe in her hands. The mother leaned over and asked with a smile, “Beautiful little girl, could you give your mommy one of your pieces of cantaloupe?” Th

The 4 Steps to A Cost Renovation

Grant Cardone sales trainer, radio host, real estate investor, and business coach is known for his statement, “Price is a myth!” He would be right. Price is a myth but costs are real and a fact.
