Many of you truly want to succeed and make a big difference in the world; and you sold yourself the idea that you will do it alone, somewhere in a cave that you alone can access, and that one day you will emerge triumphant with all the wealth and wisdom of Success… Who sold you that Plan? What is Hollywood Movies that are full of Super-Heroes toiling in loneliness and Sadness and that romanticized your mind? Or was it the romance of extraordinary Scientists who work alone in their labs ...

Who within you is running your Real Estate Business

Posted by Key Yessaad on June 20, 2013 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Michael Gerber shares in his book, The E-Myth Revisited, that each Business person who goes on to open a Business is made up of three (3) personas: The Entrepreneur, The Manager, and The Technician.


Most of you already understand the Entrepreneur and the Manager; The Technician is the trade that you have; for example you are a Baker who decides to open a Bakery – the technician in you knows everything abo...

The Skills of your Trade are not the same as the Skills of Running a Business

Posted by Key Yessaad on June 19, 2013 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

The skills of a particular trade help you develop the technician within; if you spend 3 years at a technical school learning the trade of becoming an Electrician, then you hope to get a job working for a business that offers those skills – that schooling does not prepare you to run a business that offers electric repairs and installation.


Entrepreneurs start facing challenges when they confuse their Technical Skill with...

Today we jump into session 5 of our Real Estate Training Program and this quote from Anthony Greenbank sets the tone: “To live through an impossible situation, you don’t need the reflexes of a Grand Prix driver, the muscles of a Hercules, or the mind of an Einstein.

As you unpeel the layers of successful entrepreneurs you will find many qualities, but there is one that lurks deep in the spirit of those who go the distance: Persistence.

Optimism is nourished in our brains by the Visuals we Surround ourselves with

Posted by Key Yessaad on December 26, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Our Brains play a big role in our emotional and energy balance in business, and are affected by external stimuli. Our Optimistic or Pessimistic thoughts are nourished in our brain and are affected by our environment, and are enhanced by the visuals and sounds in our homes and offices. If you desire to jolt in your optimism surround your workspace with optimistic happy pictures; photos of your family; photos from your vacations; beautiful scenery pictures or art that you ...

Laughter and Joy Disarm Challenges and make them Solvable

Posted by Key Yessaad on December 25, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (1)

Charlie Chaplin shared that ‘A Day without Laughter is a Day Wasted’ and I could not agree more; many of us have enough challenges and important tasks in our lives that at times we forget laughter and joy, but they are as important as bread and water. It is how we react to the world that makes us who we are, and we are not always at our best; we can’t help but be human – but adding laughter in a genuine authentic way breaks barriers, makes ...

Know your Commitments and Fail Faster to get to the Door of Success

Posted by Key Yessaad on December 22, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (1)

Not only is failure an option, perfection is a pure illusion and, many times, a delusion of grandeur. Nothing important is ever accomplished if you do not allow yourself to experiment, and my definition of experimentation is ‘Failure many times followed by Success.’ Michael J. Fox, who is fighting to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease and has been diagnosed with it, says: ‘Fail Faster!’ I love this! I interpret him this way: W...

Build your Real Estate Business on Vision Not Ego

Posted by Key Yessaad on December 15, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Who you are and your vision must never be reduced to one agent or one participant in your corporation. Real Estate is a wonderful industry, and it is driven by big pay rewards at times, and this fact, on it own, creates ‘Huge Egos’ and entitlement from the few agents you think  are succeeding for you. This blog post is for Brokers/Managers; I have a few simple questions to ask of you: If some unfortunate life terminating act happens to one of your supers...

Include your Family in your Business Vision

Posted by Key Yessaad on December 13, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Real Estate is a tough Business, and few ever truly thrive and excel at it, and this is why your family must be involved in your vision. Many share the complaints and frustrations of their daily battles in Real Estate, but few ever share their vision, goals, aspirations, and future rewards with their spouses. When you walk into a Real Estate Career you have agreed, for many of your beginning years, to work longer hours than those who have so-called regular jobs; 60 to 80...

The most powerful ingredients in Business Success are first and foremost Personality and Attitude followed by your Skills and Proficiency. When you learn a Sales Dialogue you are acquiring the skills of Selling but it is your Personality and Attitude that will either lead to a Sale or Not. You can give the same words, the same emails, the same sales scripts to two agents and one will close Sales while the other struggles to get a call back. The connections you try...

Being Nice can be good for your Business

Posted by Key Yessaad on November 17, 2012 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Being Nice is not only a choice it is a habit; it is also an infectious habit that spreads with intention. Disagreement is wired into the day to day management of any business, but choosing to remain nice as one goes about resolving conflicts is a mark of a long view, and grounded being-ness. I would add that being ‘Nice’ is also a great remedy against Stress, and there is plenty of it around – William James wrote: ‘The greatest weapon agai...

Reflect and Review like a Ninja and push your business towards Success

All of us have circumstances and we must navigate them to the best of our abilities; the cleanest definition of circumstance is: ‘An event or fact that causes or helps to cause something to happen, typically something undesirable.’ We are all subject to undesirable events, but we are not our condition; Benjamin Disraeli puts it this way: ‘People are not the creature of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of People.’ So how does one stop...
