In this episode of the Ninja Selling podcast, Matt and Garrett extend a warm welcome to all listeners, both seasoned and new, as they dive into the ever-evolving realm of the real estate industry, exploring how professionals navigate career demands while striving for balance. While they recognize the importance of strategies, the episode focuses on broader themes of acceptance and empowerment within real estate.
Noting that real estate operates in a constant 24/7 environment, posing challenges for agents to set boundaries and manage their time effectively, our hosts fully acknowledge that balancing work and personal life can be daunting, especially for newcomers or those undergoing significant life changes. Today, they confront these complexities head on, stressing the need for clear communication and boundaries to foster understanding with clients and loved ones. As they dissect the industry further, Matt and Garrett illuminate innovative models and opportunities for professionals to thrive, urging agents to embrace the challenges and opportunities of the industry, while empowering them to find fulfillment and success.

“Real estate is always on. Always on. That doesn’t mean you have to always be on.”
“It’s when you are just kind of taking things in and reacting to things and then blaming it on everything else that creates a problem.”
“The more value you bring, the more freedom you have to set the standards of how you operate.”
“Discipline equals freedom.”
“You can go and you can run this all on your own… or you can work underneath somebody and just handle a specific part of the business.”
“There’s so much behind the scenes going on that allows somebody to be successful.”
“If you’re finding yourself in that spot, go talk to somebody…have somebody that understands be able to break that down with you and look at it from a ton of different angles.”
