The Art of Scaling a Business

After 6 months on the road with my family, I am finally back at my office in Winter Park, CO. I am bursting with energy because when I first got into the real estate business, a trip like that would have been a complete fantasy! Scaling a business enables us to leverage time, resources, and even people to create more space in our lives for personal and professional growth. This process results in more energy, creativity, clarity, focus, productivity and so much more! Growth and scale are the keys to achieving the time and financial freedom you were seeking when you started.

Stop Surviving Success

Whether you are a brand new real estate agent or a seasoned veteran, chances are you’re reading this because you’re serious about success. Wherever you are on your journey, it’s important to prepare for your success, in order to avoid letting it rob you of your time, energy and sometimes happiness. Don’t get me wrong; success requires sacrifice. There’s a saying about entrepreneurs, something about working like most people won’t in order to someday live like most people can’t. On the other hand, the growth of your business should not prevent you from enjoying the very success you’ve been seeking once achieved! When you do it right, you’ll find yourself energized, organized, and creating predictable growth, leveraging your natural gifts as well as the gifts of others. You’ll create opportunities for everyone around you, while giving yourself permission to enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Delegate and Automate

The real estate industry is a roller coaster at the bottom, and it is a roller coaster at the top. If you are not enjoying the ride, it is time to take a step back and figure out what you can change! It doesn’t matter if you are able to pay the bills if your life is suffering as a result, and scaling a business can help you mitigate that lack of balance so you can focus on the revenue-generating activities that only YOU can do! When you figure out exactly what to delegate and offload from your plate, you will start to see results almost immediately. Learn how to get it done in this episode of Pursuing Freedom.
