When Are Two Heads Better Than One?
How To Keep Yours While Others Are Losing Theirs !
In this case for sure, two heads are better than one! ( A special thanks to the zebras for posing and inspiring this post)
In the real estate business and finance, I also think it is true. So where do find that second head? One of the best lessons I have learned from Michael Russser ( Mr. Internet, A World Acclaimed Public Speaker, Renowned Real Estate Trainer and Author) was that if you really want to be successful, having collaborators and assistants is essential in this day where providing excellent service and state of the art information in your business can make the difference between success and just getting by. Michael's "OnLine Dominance " training is state of the art and once you are one of his students, you remain so for life.
Michael Russer developed systems to utilize virtual assistants and a training program for real estate professionals to change the way they think in order to change the way they perform and accomplish the tasks required for business. Michael not only shows what to do but he also shows you how to utilize the resources of these virtual employees instead of wasting time just hiring and training employees. When questioned about it, he explains it this way.
In order for you to fully achieve your perfect dream in life, that being, having enough business to have what you want and also the time to enjoy it, you need to fully understand the dynamics of your perfect dream. Will an employee ever fully embrace your dream and help you achieve it? Only up to a point, if at all ! The missing element in that equation is that if they are helping you achieve your dream, who is going to help them achieve theirs? They will help up until the time that they realize that they are not able to live their own perfect dream and then you will start over, find and train another employee.
The larger answer to this is out there and it is the value added resource of utilizing a Virtual Assistant. They will most often cost you much less than an on-site employee, you will have no employee records or withholdings to deal with and each of you are then able to achieve your own perfect dream. I found it quite an enlightening and mind expanding training. Most Virtual assistants are already specifically trained and ready to execute the tasks that you want and need done in the way you want them done. Micahel's Book, "The Obsolete Employee" is a compendium of ideas and concepts that once embraced will change the way you do business. Not only will your business model change, so will your productivity.
Two heads, independent of each other but working together are definitely better than one!
