249: Business Update December 2022


Real Estate Business News

It’s the final business update for 2022 and it’s been a crazy year—a good year. I shared in October that things were picking up and I had some clients coming down the pipeline and that’s exactly how November played out. I had a couple of clients under contract and four more deals going at the same time. As rates drop, more people are interested in seeing houses and I have a couple of other deals that may close before the end of the year. I’m closer to my goal for the year and am super excited about that. I have about 20 clients that if the rates would drop another 1% or so, they would be rushing to look at homes, so I’m still investing the time with them and when those rates drop it will be wild. I continue to be thankful for clients that trust me to help them buy or sell a home.

Community for Realtors

The podcast is still going incredibly well. I’ve been on a ton of podcasts lately and I think I shared with you that I’ve hired someone to book me on podcasts. I was probably on about 20 podcasts in November. I also started using PodMatch in November. I met this amazing guy named Alex at some of the podcast conferences and he started PodMatch which is the equivalent of speed dating for podcasting. You meet potential podcast guests, hosts who would love to have you on their show—it’s been a great fit and my show has grown a ton. The show continues to grow listeners every month and I’m loving every minute of it. The membership community is growing and in November I actually built out the membership community mastermind community. I’ve realized that some people want to get on a call every week for a quick hour where we talk about topics and have guest speakers on Mondays, but others want a little more. So, we’ve built up another tier that works a lot like the Total Life Freedom Mastermind where they will have access to the community calls, but also have access to the private Facebook page and a weekly call where we’ll deep dive into their business every week. In November I also had someone reach out from the membership and want to hire me for six months of personal coaching and another who wants social media coaching, so that’s been exciting.

On the Home Front

I have to start out by saying happy birthday to my beautiful wife, Valerie. I was so honored that she came on the podcast last week to share a little about our journey to becoming debt free. We were excited to get to do our debt-free scream with Ramsey Solutions. Our family also enjoyed their week away—it was an incredible time. Anyway, I just want to wish my wife a happy birthday—she’s the glue that holds our family together and I could not survive without you.
