Welcome to the Onion Juice Podcast! Today we’re going to talk with Nick Raithel, creator of The 7-Hour book, about how writing a book can be your best “calling card.” We’ll also talk about “finding your 25th hour” and other time management tips you can use, and I will fill you in on the details about my Roundbox coaching program. This is a fast-paced episode with lots of good information. So, fasten your seatbelts and get listening!

Check out My Roundbox Coaching Program

Roundbox Coaching has been launched after a year of beta-testing and is now available for everyone. In this episode, I’ll tell you all about it. You can overcome Shiny Object Syndrome and design and clear and consistent plan that fits who you are. I’ll tell you where to get all the information, and even tell you how to get my 15-option business plan page for free. If you’re wanting to design a business plan that fits your personality, strengths, and gifts, my coaching program is for you!

I’m a Realtor. Why should I write a book?

Writing a book is another great media outlet for you as a Realtor. Remember that we are media companies that just happen to sell Real Estate. In this episode, Nick Raithel talks about how becoming an author raises your level of authority and gives you a way to communicate the things you want your client to know, and how your book is a boomerang. Boomerang? You’ll have to listen to find out.

How you can write a book in 7 hours of your time

Most of us don’t feel like we have time for writing a book. Or we have a fear of writing one, because, while we have some really good ideas, we don’t actually know how to write a book. This is where Nick Raithel comes in, with his 7-Hour Book service. In this episode, Nick explains how you can work with him to write your book, in only seven hours of your time, with the confidence that it will be done well by people who understand marketing. Listen in and discover what a great resource this is to get your book to publication.

Finding your 25th hour, and other time management tips from Nick Raithel

Have you found your 25th hour yet? No, I haven’t either. But Nick Raithel has some simple and usable ideas for how you can make the best of the 24 that you have. He will share those with us in this episode, and also will tell us what we can learn from a toddler about time management! Listen in to learn about managing your time, avoiding distractions, and yes, approaching your day like a toddler.

This week I had a conversation with one of my listeners about how tough it is to get listings and become a listing agent in the tight market that we have right now. Is the struggle worth it? Does it even make financial sense? In this episode, I’m going to give you a pep talk about becoming a listing agent and help you build your confidence and believe that you are a listing agent. Listen in and then join me on the Facebook group to continue the conversation!

It’s not a listing appointment, it’s a listening appointment!

Many Realtors experience some level of anxiety around creating and delivering a listing presentation. You can take the stress out of that appointment by listening instead of presenting. In this episode, I’ll explain how that works and how you can get a free copy of the questions that I use to create meaningful conversation during a listing appointment. If you want to build your confidence, find out how to get listings, and enjoy your listing appointments, you want to listen to this podcast!

Do I have to be an extrovert to succeed as a listing agent?

Personality definitely plays a part in how you run your Real Estate business. But you do not have to be an extrovert like me in order to succeed. In this episode, I’ll talk about how working as a listing agent might look different for introverts and extroverts, but how they can both be successful. If you’re concerned that your personality might get in the way of being a great listing agent, listen to this episode and be encouraged.

Determine Real Estate activities by looking at your time, your money, and your personality

Are there things you think you “should” be doing, but they don’t appeal to you? Activities that help you get listings are not “one size fits all.” In this episode, I’ll explain how to look at the mix of your available time and money as well as your personality, and determine which activities will be the most effective for your business. Listen to this podcast to find out how to get listings in a way that works best for you.

Practical ideas for how to get listings now

A lot of what we talk about on the Onion Juice podcast is attracting business instead of chasing it, and that is important and will help you get listings in the long run. But many of you need to get listings now, and I want to help you do that. Listen to this episode to find out what you can do right now to get listings. And be sure to get my free listing presentation to help you stay calm, feel good about what you are doing, and get more listings.

Are you ready to call it quits? Feeling discouraged or stuck in your Real Estate business? Shifting your mindset can make a big difference and help you revitalize your business. Today’s podcast is in response to a listener’s question. Four years in, he’s not doing well and wonders whether it’s time to cut his losses and move on to something else. I’ll respond to his question with my top recommendations for a person who is stuck. And then we’ll talk with my co-worker, Joe Marks, who was ready to quit two years ago and has experienced a complete turnaround. Join us. You’ll be glad you did.

Here’s how to raise your confidence level in your Real Estate business

How confident are you as you approach your Real Estate business? If you’re discouraged and thinking about calling it quits, chances are you have lost your confidence. In this episode, I’ll give you some ideas about how you can shift your mindset and build up your confidence again. Listen in and give yourself a chance to regain your confidence before you decide that it’s time to move on to something else.

Joe Marks’ story: From ready to quit to doubling his business in a year

Five years into his Real Estate career, Joe Marks was ready to call it quits. Now, two years later, he is enjoying his business and his production doubled from 2015 to 2016. Want to know how that happened? Listen to my conversation with Joe to find out the things that are working for him, what motivates him to stay in business, and how he shifted his mindset. You’re sure to hear some insights that will work for you, too!

Is your coach helping you or hindering you?

Having a coach is essential when you are building your Real Estate business. But is your coach doing what is best for you? In this episode, I’ll talk about the kind of coach that will really help you and the kind that may actually be holding you back. If you are unsure whether or not you should continue with your business, listen to this episode first and decide if what you really need might be a different kind of coach and a shift in your mindset.

Shifting from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset breathes life into your business

A big part of what changed Joe Marks’ mind about calling it quits was his shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. In this episode, Joe and I talk about that shift and how it affected everything about his business. Listen to find out how Joe rediscovered his passion, how he created a vision for the future, and how this new mindset helps him handle a tough week differently than he did before. His story can be your story. Be sure to listen if you’re thinking about packing it in!

Outline of this great episode

  • [3:26] My recommendations, the OJ way, for a person who is stuck.
  • [9:14] Intro of today’s guest, Joe Marks, who was ready to quit after 5 years in the business.
  • [11:46] Is your coach helping you do what feels right for you, not just what worked for your coach?
  • [15:07] How Joe’s mindset change resulted in doubling his production in one year.
  • [19:33] How focusing on his passion is helping Joe Marks stay in business.
  • [22:16] Joe Mark’s vision for the future and how he expects to get there.
