From Top Agent to Top Coach

Michael Hellickson started his real estate career back in 1991. After building an incredibly successful business and team, he retired for a couple of years. During that time, Michael started developing an amazing real estate coaching program to help other real estate professionals achieve time and financial freedom too! He came out of retirement to become the founder and President of Club Wealth® Coaching and Consulting. Club Wealth® is the top coaching and consulting firm in the real estate industry, boasting a double your income, money-back guarantee! In this episode of the Pursuing Freedom podcast, Michael joins us to share his real estate story, and explain the skills and mindset that got him where he is today.

You Can’t Just Do One Thing

It didn’t take Michael long to realize there are tons of resources that can help you shortcut the learning curve. Real estate coaching enabled him to cut his journey from where he was to where he wanted to be by about five to ten years! But he eventually hit a plateau. There are only so many hours in a day, and there are only so many calls he could make—burnout was approaching quickly. So he hired another coach…and another…and another! He took pieces from each experience, delegated as much as he could, and eliminated as much waste as possible, then repeated the cycle! He started doing a substantial amount of transactions each month, and when the recession of 2008 hit, he shifted his focus to short sales. Everything he learned had come full circle and he managed to do well because he was able to adapt! New resources and skills will make you more versatile when curveballs are thrown your way!

Balance is Key

Even with great real estate coaching and mentorship, you can’t just be a one-trick pony. Balanced systems are critical to your success. You need to have balanced lead generation; diverse lead generation sources; and expertise in lead gen, lead follow-up, and lead conversion. If you automate, delegate, and eliminate unnecessary processes while you do the above, you will start to see a pretty healthy business! You will start to live the lifestyle you always dreamed of. You will be able to focus on how to make a difference instead of how to make a living. Michael was put on this earth to help other people live their best life, and there is a lot to learn from his story.
