Quotations from Ken

“I said, John, look at this, look at where you were. I know you’re feeling like you’re not far along. Zoom out. Look at the trend line. Look where you were a year ago, look at where your life was, what your podcast was, look at where your family was.”

“So Realtors out there, I highly encourage you to keep a journal. I mean, John has his in podcast format, as do I keep a journal. Write some notes. What’s going on in your life right now?
