The mega brand Nike is known worldwide for its catchy slogan “Just Do It!” I think this is partly because so many of us want to feel like we relate to this phrase and it in some way speaks to us, but my experience as a speaker and trainer tells me different.
I recently attended a REIA meeting (Real Estate Investors Association), which take place all over the country and is a great place to find quality investors (a portion of the market that is way underutilized by the REALTOR® community in my opinion).
What struck me about this meeting were the similarities I found in the attendees now compared to last meeting I attended almost three years ago. At one point, the host asked the crowd a very important question, “How many of you have purchased at least one property in the last year?”
It sounds like a pretty simple question for a group of investors but I was amazed to see that, just like the crowd I witnessed three years ago, only about 10 percent of the crowd raised their hands. I started thinking about this and my experiences with literally tens of thousands of REALTORS® and sales people over the past years and I came to three conclusions.
First, people love to learn new things. We love to expand our knowledge wherever possible.
Second, people love to plan.
