Knowledge is valuable

Here is a list of ‘lessons’ I thought about to share with folks. In no particular order (except the way they popped into my head) is a list of things I wish someone had taught me when I was ready to learn.

What are you ready to learn? Comment below and we’ll get started with the lessons. Since you’re here, I have to say all of these lessons will be from a referral mindset. It matters how you want to work and if we are not in sync you’ll say it won’t work or you won’t like what I have to say but if you do then this is the place for you.

  1. Contracts Class – The Why, not just the How.
  2. Handling inspections and amendments to address concerns

  7. Choosing a CRM – free or paid, company or 3rd party
  8. Starting a web presence – get your name as a domain

There is more to learn and if you want something I didn’t list then comment below and we’ll add it. I plan to teach these things via video and blog posts or both, depending on the best way to get the info across.

Thanks for listening,
