I am a HUGE fan of implementing a system into your business, I have spoken about this before in my blogs.

JEREMY TOROBIN OTTAWA— Globe and Mail Update Published Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2012 9:02AM EDT Last updated Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2012 10:02AM EDT The Bank of Canada left its main interest rate untouched at 1 per cent Tuesday, while painting a brighter economic outlook and hinting for the first time since last summer that it is beginning to look for an opportunity to raise borrowing costs. The decision to stand pat for a 13th consecutive meeting was expected. But after weeks of sunnier rhetoric from Governor Mark Carney amid a strengthening domestic recovery, Bay Street analysts had been debating how far he would go in trying to reshape expectations that he may be on hold until late next year. The statement on Tuesday’s decision was vague about timing, saying only that it may become necessary to ...

Photo Courtesy of http://ft2.ca/photography.html I wanted to share with you today some great tips on how to capture the best images for your listing photography. I know some agents hire out this service and have a professional take their listing pictures. This is fantastic and truly does make a difference. But, if you’re a new agent, or just a Sales Representative that enjoys complete the tasks independently, these tips below were written with you in mind! I find it interesting the amount of marketing material I see out there that is horribly designed or the pictures on feature sheets aren’t suffice to show the true value in a home. 6 Photography tidbits for listing photography 1. Take pictures of your new listing when the sun is shining on the front of the house. 2. Know the direction...

I was reading an article today over at Reuters.com called Q&A: Women Entrepreneurs Fear Failure More Than Men: Study. Babson College and theGlobal Entrepreneurship Monitor have recently released their 2010 Study about women’s entrepreneurship around the world. Women Fear Failure More Than Men Their study found in 2010, 104 million women representing more than half the world’s population and 84 percent of world gross domestic product started and managed new business ventures. While these numbers seem to be high to me, the study concluded women in general have lower perceptions than men about their capabilities for starting a business. The United States ranks highest among wealthy economies in terms of women’s capabilities perceptions-their belief that they have the capabilities to start ...

I thought it would be interesting to start a 2cent Wednesday series.  Each Wednesday moving forward, we’ll discuss some not-so-pleasant experiences and share our thoughts on how we would handle them so we are better equipped for the future. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Real Estate Sales Representatives share their experiences with me.  Some stories moved and inspired me. While others…not so much.  I believe, sharing is a great way to learn and grow together. Experiences Define Us I have given a high-five to a REALTOR® during their biggest triumph and have hugged it out when a REALTOR® sadly lost a deal or even worse, a client. Through it all, each Sales Representative’s experience and lessons learned are different. How one person handles a particular situation will differ from ...

Chris Brogan popular blogger shares Social Media tips There is no question. Social Media is where it is at now-a-days. Especially for small business owners striving to get into their target market. "If you were at a cocktail party, you wouldn't come up and shake someone's hand and say, 'You should see what I sell. I'm amazing!' You would ask about the other person," says Brogan, president of Human Business Works, a small-business education and growth company. "The same holds true [on social networks]. You really need to build a relationship before you go for the sale." And if you think you can skip social media and it won't affect your business, Brogan says think again. Check out this video with Chris Brogan who discusses some tips on Social Media and how you can easily join it into you...
