Most people who want to have a transaction coordinator business tell me that sales and marketing isn’t their thing. Well, folks, unless you have a sales force doing it for you, you’ll need to do make friends with it to create the business you want. What if we’re making the sales and marketing pro...

If there is anything I have learned in being an entrepreneur, it’s that there really is no one right way. There is no magic formula, no secret method you can buy, and no matter how much you learn, there will always be more. Over the years, as the owner of a transaction coordinator business I did ...

There have been more than a few days over the years that I have wanted to give up this crazy rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurialism running a transaction coordinator company. There was the time my website was under attack here at the Transaction Coordinator Academy – really, it was.

As an entrepreneur, business coach, and friend to many other entrepreneurs, one of the most common statements I hear is, “I don’t know what to do.” It’s not the technical part that holds us back; there are plenty of part-time virtual geeks to help with something techie. It’s not that we’re not pa...

Recently I was on a discovery call with a potential coaching client who has her own transaction coordinator company. During our call, I asked her what she wanted her company to look like in a year. She listed a few things such as a certain number of closings each month, another member on her tea...

I bet I’ve been asked that question about 500 times (or more) over the years by Realtors. They ask this concerning my team’s availability and the boundaries we have in place around or work. Each time I ask them to tell me more, to give me an example of an emergency. Generally, they are a bit stum...
