A team is only as good as its weakest link.  As leader of a team you need to make sure that there are no weak links.  The Westchester County Businesses that I coach do not work on strengthening those weak links.  No, they work on leveraging each individual's strengths.  They insist on having the ...

Most of the information  I read talks about how to deal with the Millennials as workers and as customers. That might work for your marketing if your target market is only Millennials but might not solve issues in your work team.  We have three generations and understanding all three generations i...

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert inspired me with her post Can You Handle the Truth. No one wants to intentionally tell a lie.  On the other hand everyone wants to be liked and this fact can prevent people from saying what needs to be said.  I am not saying that you should offer a truthfu...

If you have been having great business success you know that it is not by accident.  You created a business plan and stayed focused on the execution of that plan.  Show me an unfocused business and I will show you one that has no direction and is in a state of disarray.  Of course, you do need to...

Let me ask a question.  Is there any other reason to create a team other than to grow your business?  If you want to grow your business by growing your team you must empower your team to act independently.  That sounds so simple and it is.  In fact, those brokers and owners who have been giving t...

I also like to go to Starbucks.  In fact I sometimes call it my second office.  But there is a warm and comfortable coffee shop right in the center on Armonk. The Tazza Café has been located on Main Street in Armonk for years.  Just last year it moved to a much larger location at 400 Main Street....

I recently asked a Linked in Group if they thought lack or knowledge or bad habits created failure.  The overwhelming majority responded that it is bad habits that create failure.  When I started my business I asked another coach why most businesses fail.  He answered with the statement, "They sp...

Yesterday, most of the Northeast from Washington DC to Maine was hunkering down for what was supposed to be the biggest storm ever.  Here in Westchester County New York we were all cleaning out the supermaket shelves and the snow shovels at Home Depot and the hardware stores.

If you have ever used a compass you know that it always points to true North.  In the same manner your values are your personal compass keeping you on the right track as you achieve your goals.  It is important to achieve your goals but you should never violate your core values.  In a previous po...

A good manager broker has proper controls in place.  But if you have too much control it could be counter productive. With regard to your own clients and your individual business you need to be in control to see that nothing gets derailed. I have found that some owners here in Westchester County ...

Have you noticed that everyone mentions goals at some point in their blogs.  All successful business plans have goals and timetables.  But there are still some people that say, "I don't believe in goals or I have my goals in my head."  My answer to those comments: First, if you don't know where y...

About 30 years ago I read a book by Robert Schuller called The Peak to Peek Principle.  It talks about reaching new peaks in your career and life.  And then when you reach that peak you can peek to the new plateau.  In other words, success is a journey and not a destination.   Well yesterday I re...

It has taken me some time to think about my Pay It Forward.  In my opinion Pay it Forward is helping people from whom you could never expect anything.  Although that is really not tue because the satisfaction you get from a warm smile of gratitude is all that is needed. I have have volunteered at...

When I teach people goal setting and goal achievement I use New Years resolutions as examples of goals that don't have a strong why.  Many times people make resolutions as they are celebrating on New Years Eve.   My favorite example the the New Years resolution to go to the gym.  I go to the gym ...

Why did you become a Real Estate agent?  Or, for that matter, why did you choose your business or profession?  Why does it really matter anyway? Maybe you heeded the Nike slogan “Just do it!”  In my previous blog READY, SET, GO...WAIT I talked about procrastination.  If nothing is working maybe t...

It has been a busy December for me and now on Christmas Eve I am finally ready with the house.  Every year I start the decorating the day before Thanksgiving.  I put up the outside lights before it gets too cold although I don't turn them on until much closer to Christmas.   I grew up in Pennsylv...

The three words Ready, Set, Go are familiar in many competitive sports such as track or swimming.  A swimmer needs to make the right dive at the start time or the momentum will be lost.  He must be prepared to leave the block at the very second of GO.  Proper preparation does prevent poor perform...

I was going through old Christmas cookie recepies with my sister and found some of my grandmother's old recepies.  At this time of year many of us think back our childhood.  I remember having these Christmas cookies.  I told my wife I would make some cookies for the holidays this year.  This rece...
