Whether you are a real estate investing veteran with over 1,000 deals under your belt or you are fresh off of your first real estate education course the following 4 steps will make sure that 2012 is an awesome year for you in terms of both income and personal freedom.
1. Your Business Planning Retreat
If you haven’t ironed out all of your business and marketing plans for the New Year yet don’t keep putting it off. Unless you block out time for it now it will never get polished and your real estate investing business will struggle all year. You may already be booked up with holiday plans for the next 2 weeks. That’s OK. Just set aside a solid 2-4 days for a retreat to put the final touches to your plans before the 15th of January.
2. Learn To Be A Leader Not A Manager
If you have only ever wanted to be a manager and that is all you desire for the future then find another real estate investing business to go work for. However, if you want to run your own show and enjoy all of the benefits that come it then know the difference and commit to being a true leader in 2012.
3. Schedule Your Vacation Time Now
Again, if you don’t book the time off in advance now it will likely never happen. Regardless of how enjoyable and rewarding real estate investing is, everyone needs a day out, even if only to come back more inspired and motivated. So whether it is a few weekends, two weeks straight or an entire month, block out the time now.
4. Empower Your Employees For Speed & Freedom
You don’t need to just be fast to survive and win in business anymore, you and your organization must be able to adapt and take action on the spot, especially when it comes to real estate investing. This can only be done by truly empowering those running your front-lines, which will simultaneously give you the additional freedom that you seek.
