Say Yes Until You Can Say No

Derek Shivers, founder of CD Baby, has an interesting perspective about saying no. Early in his career he said yes to every gig as he wanted to be a professional musician. He played at a pig farm, he played an art opening, played at a circus. He took a $60 bus fare out to the gig that paid them $75 and then went back home. He took this circus gig and he wound up being in that show for 10 years…from age 18 to 28. He went from $75 a show to $300 a show and it became his full-time job. He eventually bought his first house on the money he made playing at the circus. He said yes to the circus gig so he could “earn the right” to say no and to say yes to the things that would fuel his passion and mission.

Serena can go out there and practice the same game every day for 10,000 hours. But in business that just doesn’t work. The game is constantly changing. The rules are constantly changing.

Eight Prerequisites for Influence

On this Friday’s Xperience Partner Call, Director of Expansion Katie Benson shared some powerful insights from a recent coaching session with her coach, Kate Patulski. We, as real estate agents, are in sales. In sales, it is necessary for us to influence others. It is important that we practice being neither inferior or superior to any other human beings whether it is our assistant, a client or our significant other. When we decide we are superior or inferior, growth is prevented, and influence ceases to exist. As human beings, when we decide there has been an injustice, we tend to think, act and communicate like we are superior. We become indignant about injustice. These eight prerequisites for influence will help you better communicate with your clients, coworkers and friends. Refer back to this list when you feel like your failing to influence others.
