Inna Ivchenko - I appreciate your thoughts and perspective - the principle of sowing and reaping teaches that if we hoard the seed, it will never take root...we must be willing to relinquish the seed and scatter it freely.  An abundant harvest is best enjoyed, when shared!

Some ideas/steps to add to your goal to create more business:

  •  Build networks and find people willing to help you.
  • Reciprocate leads (find leads for other professionals, so that they will find leads for you).
  • Add value to your services.
  • Create new markets or new opportunities.

Hi Inna:  Was just talking about the same thing today. It is important for us to check in constantly with that "drunk monkey" (our negative self talk)  to see what we are thinking so we can shift it from scarcity to abundance.

I have a niche and it is rare for me to have to go searching for business. Most comes to me in the form of referrals from those i took good crae of in the past. Many new clients find me right here on my Active Rain blog and the balance call me from my listings, want to buy or want to list with me because i sold  home in their area. I dont worry about what other companies are doing. Most of the big ones lack of service droves more people my way anyway

I'm a realist.  The glass isn't half full, half empty, twice as big as it needs to be or ready for more beer.  There are a finite number of properties in existence with a certain percentage on the market at any one time and X amount of agents.  Mathmatically speaking, there is enough for all to have a decent slice of the pie.  Realistically, the more effort you put out the bigger your slice of pie.

 

Now excuse me while I go get a slice of pecan pie.  All this talk of pies made me hungry!
