In real estate, the courses that get us qualified don’t teach us everything we need to know - in fact, they barely scratch the surface. This is an industry with so much depth, and we have to learn as much as we can to have staying power. 


Right now, there are more real estate agents in the industry than ever before, but most won’t last long. They don’t commit to learning beyond their initial training. 


What does it take to stay in the business for years, and even decades? How do we set a vision and follow through? 


In this episode, I’m joined by broker and Chicago Agent's Rookie of the Year nominee Tiffany Willis-Johnson. She shares how she sold 30 homes in her first year, and we talk about how to set yourself up for success from day 1 in real estate. 

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 


- The power of starting with the end in mind

How do we unlock big opportunities by strategically affiliating ourselves with the right people? 


- Why I set up 13 streams of income

How do you build a business you can take everywhere you go?  


- How to stabilize our income 

What steps can we take to cushion the blow if a deal falls apart?
