Kids aren’t the only ones going back to school. If you want to improve your skills, it’s important commit to learning, whether it’s reading a book or taking a class or workshop. However, if you’re like many agents and brokers, you may say, “I’d love to learn more, but I just don’t have the time.” When you’re busy closing deals, generating leads and trying to build a business it can be difficult to carve out time to take classes and learn.

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.
