Monday Mantra - Your Financial Enema For 2019
What on earth do I mean by this? In short, it’s the ability to look back on what we have done this year, what we have spent money on, what has worked and what hasn’t worked. This is essentially tracking your finances.
It’s an ever-evolving market that continues to change, and as business professionals, as CEO’s of a small company, this is basic stuff that will hopefully help you grow your business.
What I would suggest is to take out a pen and paper, go back through all of your credit card receipts and make a note on everything you are spending on your business and what you have allotted funds for.
Then, go back through your client list and all of the deals you’ve made. See how you made them; were they referrals, did you get them through your social media, networking, etc. See where you have done the most business.
Where I’m going with this is the numbers never lie, but they always change and evolve. This is where you win though because you can see what not to do that isn’t working, so you won’t keep wasting time.
Here is the crucial tip though- Take some of the money you allot for things that are working and put it into something that you think WILL work. This is a way to predict trends and get ahead.
We have to call ourselves out on our shit and be honest about what the numbers say and the work we are putting in. When we evolve, we win, and when we don’t, we die.
As of right now, the reset button has been hit, and the real estate industry has completely changed forever. Like I have said for a long time now, it’s all about you and your narrative.
Think of it this way- All of your clients are on social media. They are already there and a captive audience, so use the forums. Through written word, audio or visual showcase your voice. If you aren’t quite there with your confidence or unsure of what direction to go, you can get help with your voice if you are struggling. There are endless amounts of people out there who you can hire hourly to help you establish your digital identity.
I’ll end with this- Most people don’t like change. I happen to be one of those weirdos that love it, but what I want you to do at least is embrace it.
To recap- Go through your numbers, lay it all out, see where the deals came from. And most importantly, take some of the money out of what has worked and deploy it into strategies that you think will work. Commit to something that makes you uneasy and go for it. It’s all about evolving.
Let’s face the New Year and start it based upon faith in yourself and your digital identity. There is nothing to fear, as we are incredibly fortunate to live where we do and have the endless opportunities that we do.
Thanks for watching and being part of the rebellion
