What’s your plan for staying motivated with your real estate business this year? Whether lofty or grounded, it’s always a good idea to pencil in some “you” time.
Time for personal growth pursuits, time to dig deeper into various aspects of your business, time to get pumped up after those long, weary days that tend to wear us down.
We’ve rounded up 6 podcasts to help you out. Not all are real estate-related but we think they’re worthy of a listen.
You can’t go wrong getting happiness advice from the author of “The Happiness Project” and four other bestsellers and a woman that the New York Times calls “the queen of the self-help memoir.”
Her sister, Elizabeth Craft, joins her in her award-winning podcast to discuss good habits, happiness and more.
We recommend Podcast 303, where the sisters discuss finding a ritual that will help you “Exorcise 2020 … Tips for Sticking to a Schedule When Working from Home,” and more.
This podcast does include ads and lots of chatter in the beginning. If you want to get to the meat of the episode, fast-forward to 7:25.
Tony Robbins says that to become the best at what you do, you need to study and learn from the best.
The author of the wildly popular book, “The 4-Hour Workweek,” Tim Ferriss helps you out with interviews of guests from a variety of industries, breaking down “… the habits and routines that contributed to that person’s success.”
Have you ever felt “stuck?” Yeah, most of us have. If so, you’ll love Ferriss’ interview with actor and author Matthew McConaughey, a man who grew up in a home where kids could cuss, but they were forbidden from saying the word “can’t.”
The official title of this episode is “The Power of ‘No, Thank You,’ Key Life Lessons, 30+ Years of Diary Notes, and The Art of Catching Greenlights”
McConaughey steps in at 6:30, in case you want to skip the intro stuff.
If you listened to the interview with McConaughey, mentioned above, you know that he credits Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman in the World” for his success. Ever read it?
Have it read to you by host Dean Bokhari at flashnotes.com. This ingenious podcast is custom-made for the busy business person with no time to read.
If you haven’t read Magdino’s book, catch this episode because Bokhari reads it in full (it’s a short book).
Phoenix agent Joshua Smith has garnered a spot on Wall Street Journal’s Top Realtor in America list as well as NAR’s “30 under 30.”
The voice and wisdom behind GSD, (short for Get Sh!t Done) Smith imparts his own experience and wisdom as well as provides interviews with other top performing agents and team leaders from across the country.
Although they are all worth a listen, we recommend two podcast episodes in particular:
“How to Handle any Objection,” from buyers, sellers, leads, etc.
It’s astounding. The majority of real estate agents in this country are female yet few are hosting podcasts. It’s especially troubling when one considers that the top five agents in the country (sales volume), according to the RealTrends list, are women.
Thankfully, the industry isn’t completely bereft of female voices. Check out “Women Rocking Real Estate” with Canada’s Jennifer Percival.
Percival is also a coach, helping “women in real estate build a thriving, predictable business without using old school tactics.”
We recommend Episode #34, Reboot your Business in 9 Key Areas. Fast-forward to 6:40 (Percival is a bit chatty).
The Take a Listing Today podcast is a show focused on providing marketing strategies with easy, actionable steps that help agents taking new listings and grow their real estate business.
They also have a Youtube channel, where they show step-by-step walkthroughs of many of their new marketing ideas. Making it super easy to know exactly how to launch the ideas for your business.
The show is hosted by Jim Studebaker and Todd Robertson, two experts in the field of real estate marketing.
Whomever you choose to follow online and off, we hope you meet with great success in 2021.
