New year, new goals! 2015 has begun and everyone is making their new year’s resolutions, setting goals and plans for 2015, and looking back on what they have (or maybe have not) accomplished in 2014. Roger Fazendin REALTORS® has a great tradition every year called our “Kick-Off.” Sometime in the first week of the new year, we take over a conference room at the Lexus dealership right down the road (they’re always such great hosts!) and listen to a guest speaker who gives us ideas on how to make the next year our best.
This year, for the second year in a row, it was a privilege to have Rick DeLuca come speak to our group. Multi-million dollar salesman, manager, real estate instructor, motivational speaker and all-around genuine guy are just a few ways to describe Rick and we enjoyed having him back! He mentioned that one of the reasons he was excited to come back was because of the progress and results he saw from our company as a result of his talk last year. RFR agents and staff had a fun time trying out new marketing ideas and client connection events in 2014 that Rick inspired.
This year, Rick got a little more hands-on and encouraged us to write down our strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities for 2015. Then he challenged us to set a “Big, Hairy Audacious Goal” – a goal that might not even be attainable, but helps us push ourselves a little farther than we normally would. We took a look at the goals we did or did not accomplish in 2014, and then Rick shared with us new ideas to continue to grow.
A fun quote Rick shared at the end of his talk, “If you woke up without a goal, go back to sleep.” It’s 2015 and it’s time to make a plan to meet your goals! Don’t forget to have fun while you’re doing it.
As always, we want to thank our past and present clients for another great year and all the opportunities. Happy New Year!
