The Power of Intention

From changing her business to changing her life, Tami Pardee knows firsthand that the key to realizing our potential lies in the power of intention setting.

Throughout our awesome conversation on this week’s episode of the Pursuing Freedom podcast, Tami offers up several examples of how the power of intention has shaped her own life — from changing how she works, leads her team, and influences her industry to the ways she is helping to change the lives of people all over the world through Life Change Warriors.

Changing Our Work

Tami has been in the real estate world her entire life. After growing up with parents who were builders and designers, she intentionally made the decision to avoid real estate work —and the entire industry, really — in her early career. That pivot led her to LA, and to an exciting career in entertainment and production. But, as fate would have it, even while working in an industry so vastly different from the one she’d grown up in, Tami couldn’t help but find herself being drawn back to real estate. When she ultimately decided to return to her roots, she was determined to do so in a way that not only changed the way she worked but changed the entire landscape of the industry.

Tami felt that the traditional real estate model was “broken.” And, since her experience was in production, she used it to shake up the industry in order to do things differently on purpose. Spoiler alert: it worked. Spectacularly. The “Production Model” that Tami implemented for her team not only proved highly successful for her business and her clients, but it allowed her to cultivate a genuine team dynamic long before real estate teams were ever a thing. Now, that team has become a family, and that production model has reshaped the entire real estate climate in the greater LA market.

Changing Our Lives

As if her success with her business wasn’t enough to reinforce Tami’s belief in the power of intention (not to mention ours!) she also shared several ways that intention setting has impacted her own life. From discovering, defining, and defending her personal boundaries, to helping her build the life she always dreamed of living, for Tami, the common denominator has always been her faithfulness in setting intentions for her life, her leadership style, and her vision for her future.

By following through on those intentions, Tami has not only created a life she loves, but through her incredible work with Life Change Warriors, she has also created opportunities for people all over the world to change their lives as well. Her advice to anyone looking to embrace change in their own life? Just start. It is never too late to put your dreams into action, and it is NEVER too early to start building a life you don’t need a vacation from.
