She shares her journey into real estate coaching and explains her approach to goal setting in life and business so you can truly change into who you want to become!

Surviving Success

Cari describes the dilemma of surviving success with more accuracy and clarity than I’ve ever heard before. In the time it took Cari to become a top producing agent and a stellar team leader, she found herself struggling to cope with the new demands of her job. Before organizing her business to support her dream life, she spent months and years blaming the job for her unhappiness instead of looking inward. When the business starts to consume all of our energy, it creates resentment that forces us to either play it small or sacrifice everything for success. The problem is not within the job, it is within ourselves.

Organizing Your Business in Alignment with Your Lifestyle

It’s important for real estate professionals to understand that you can enjoy success and a fulfilling life simultaneously; it doesn’t have to be a tradeoff. The problem is that we get caught up in our careers and lose focus on everything else. This is okay when you’re starting out, but it will quickly turn into a vicious cycle if you’re not consciously setting goals for your life and your job at the same time. The visioning and goalsetting processes we use are about organizing your business in alignment with your lifestyle goals, not independent of them! The truth is…you can have both!
