If you’re like most agents, you want to be more productive, and to do so you may churn out longer hours at the office, working without breaks or time off.

Soon, we realize despite all of our busyness, we’re not seeing the results we want and are too frustrated, tired and burned out to keep going.

Never stop learning. This is something that we often hear, especially at Buffini & Company seminars. In this clip from the real estate event, the MasterMind Summit, Brian Buffini explains the importance of lifelong learning and finding great mentors.
A commitment to personal development is important to achieving success in business and life. Head knowledge is what helps to drive your business.
3 Tips for Optimizing Your Head Knowledge
1. Be a lifelong learner.
2. Learn from your mistakes.
3. Find mentors.
Brian learned a lot from his first mentors, his parents. From his father, George Buffini, he learned how to provide service that went beyond expectations. His father would always ask, “Can you put your name to that?” meaning would you be proud of the work you did. From his mother, Therese, he learned belief. She would always encourage him and say, “You can do it, Briny.” Hearing encouraging words often enough can help you begin to believe them.
Want to commit to lifelong learning? Take a class or find a seminar to attend (might we suggest one of the fine events we offer at Buffini & Company). Once you register for an event, be sure to mark it in your calendar in Referral Maker® real estate CRM.
