offrs Review: Dare to be average

Go on, you can do it... be average. Wait... what? That's right. Dare to be average. Not everything has to be at a break-neck pace. If you're looking for a friendly reminder to keep things in balance, here ya go. Let's review...


There’s a fantastic adage that permeates the halls of survivors... “dare to be average.” Let that sink in. It’s safe to assume here that most reading this aren’t really prepared to take this concept head-on. Afterall, everything in our industry seems permanently dialed in at 11 (dawning my best WWF voice here... bare with me) “be the best!” or “knock the competition into yesterdayyyy!!!” But where does that leave the majority of folks that got into this business specifically because of the life-to-work ratio? Not everyone wants fleeting, break-neck results, damn the costs to friends and family life!!!

Okay, so… while Tesla’s Model X might not be slated for your driveway anytime soon, you’ll never-the-less remain the neighborhood’s trusted voice on all things real estate (and maybe for a good, long while). Why? Because you had the audacity to imagine your business as a scalable, manageable component of your life. Explore whether or not a more scaled-down, manageable business could be a strategy to outlast competitors in your farm. In short... pace yo’self... it might just save your business.

But hey, if you're hot to trot for lead generation (real estate), then kudos to you ma'am/sir! You're going to want to check out all that we have to offer on that front. Don't let our editors stop ya! =)
