I have read it all twice and some parts more than that. In my opinion there's some thing there for any realtor. For me, the part I actually use the most is the mindset part. Very good for helping one create the level of business they wish to have. And the rest of the book provides practical common sense models and systems to get there. If someone wants a tried and proven road map with a track record or success - it's right there for any agent with any office.

Long ago now. Gosh it goes back to the early 2000s. I do things so different than most everybody else. I learned quickly that I work best solo, I don't need motivation from anyone except myself, and I know how to get what I want for me and those I assist.
Lots of people have benefited from it and that is fine.

I have and it has not affected my business in the least. I had to figure out how to make it a successful business long before this book came out so had come to many of these conclusions on my own. What has affected my business is my commitment to it, my willingness to change with the times, and my consistency.

I was invited to join a training session a few weeks ago where this book was discusssed quite a bit. I was curious so bought it and am partway through it. So the answer is no I haven't read it (in its entirety) and it hasn't affected my business yet.

I read it years ago. I thought it was a good book and I am sure some of the things I have implemented now are from it, but I honestly couldn't say exactly what since it was so long ago. I read a lot of books early on (10-15 years ago) including MREA & MREI (investor) and Dirk Zeller's Champion Real Estate Agent books. I gleaned what I needed from them. I think they are worth reading. -Kasey

Bob Crane, what is MREA?  Has anyone else been noticing there are initials being used for everything from advertising, online, conversations and everywhere it seems in particular this past year? 

One of the ladies here in the office asked me what is a bogo?  One of my daughters had just told me a few days prior because I had asked her the same question.  I answered  "buy one get one" like I knew it for a long time  

Are people too lazy to say or type out the actual words anymore or is using  an intial  meaning  more hip?  When I was a young girl my mom used to say so & so was a KIA.  I asked her what that meant and she said "Know It All."  There's a new abbreviation to add to the ever growing list!
