Finding Balance in the Real Estate Business

I recently had the opportunity to join Jim Remley on his podcast called “e-Real Estate Coach.” It was such a great conversation that I wanted to share it on Pursuing Freedom in the hopes that it will bring you value! Jim is a nationally recognized expert in the real estate business, and he leads one of the largest real estate firms in the state of Oregon, closing 2500 transactions a year. He is an accredited author, coach, and speaker. And in this episode, Jim and I discuss many different topics related to lifestyle and business design in the real estate space!

The Caregiver Mindset

Most of us got into the real estate business to achieve some level of time or financial freedom. However, surviving success can often be more painful than the journey it takes to achieve it in the first place! Whatever flexibility means to you, you won’t be able to enjoy it if your fears prevent you from achieving the success you seek. On the other side of that equation, you also won’t be able to enjoy the freedom of being your own boss if your business is growing so rapidly that you work to burnout! Balance in this industry comes from enjoying the process and loving what you do every step of the way. You want to be a connector, a servant, and someone who helps their clients in all aspects of their life. That is key to success!

Structure is NOT Suffocating

Now, on a tactical level, serving others alone will not get you to the level of success you want to achieve. Especially if you are approaching it in a way that allows other people to cut into your personal time with no boundaries in place. However, the caregiver mindset is a fundamental philosophy that WILL help you stay on track! You still need to have a concrete gameplan in place, with clarity around what your vision of success looks like. Contrary to popular belief among free-spirited entrepreneurs, structure is not suffocating. Scheduling, time blocking, and single-tasking will help you make sure that—even on your worst week of the year—you are still moving the needle and inching toward your goals!
