Discipline in Business

Discipline and focus are powerful tools you can use to grow your business. With a million things tugging at your attention, learning to cut through the noise and focus on what matters most isn’t just good for your business. Developing discipline in business is practically a survival skill!

This week’s guest on the Pursuing Freedom podcast is Jonna Weber, a Boise, Idaho based real estate agent and business owner and experienced real estate investor. Real estate is Jonna’s third career, and she didn’t get her license until age 39! Yet Jonna has created real success for herself and her team, and she now coaches real estate agents nationally.

During our conversation, Jonna shares how she left her career as a teacher and got started in real estate, and she shares how she has grown a thriving business well beyond the modest expectations she had set for herself early on. She talks about some of the ups and downs and challenges she faced as her business grew, and she explains how discipline in business has been a key skill she has put to use.

Why Discipline In Business Matters

When Jonna first dipped her toe into real estate sales, she set the bar low. She hoped to make as much money as she had made as a teacher. And, though it took five months to sell her first property, once the ball began rolling Jonna’s new career took off!

Jonna focused on developing her skills. She looked at what other successful agents were doing and extracted important lessons from them. And she worked with various coaches and mentors to help her develop the discipline and focus she knew she needed to succeed… and to keep up with her growing business! She learned to set aside time each day to work on her business and not just in it.

By aligning herself with the right people and finding the right coaches that could push her to achieve more than she thought possible, Jonna was able to truly hit the ground running and very quickly exceed her own hopes and expectations for her career.

Hiring the Right People at the Right Time

The first employee Jonna hired was a full-time assistant. As she explained it during the podcast episode:

“In my case, I believe that not only did I hire the wrong person but I hired too early, because I didn’t have my foundation set up as an agent as much. And I spent so much time and money training this assistant because I wanted her to be like a ‘little me’. It did not fit, it did not work.”

Hiring someone with the wrong skill set for Jonna’s business needs became a costly headache. Instead of accelerating the scaling of her business like she had hoped, it became a drain on her energy and resources.

However, this taught Jonna an important lesson. So, when her business scaled organically and it became time to add new team members, this time Jonna focused on finding the right people for the right roles and ensuring that they fit with her vision for her company. And this time, those hires did help Jonna scale her business!
