From the Author
As I left the funeral of a friend of mine who died from kidney cancer I had a vision of a barrel of monkeys. Remember the little plastic monkeys that you hang from each other , arm to arm?
My friend was a public high school football coach. The church was full of young men he had mentored. One by one they stood up and gave eulogies of what Coach Ken had taught them. Coach Ken was immortal. Hundreds of mentees would spread his beliefs and values to their younger brothers, their own children and to all the employees they ever manage in their long lifetimes. I realized that although I could count over 65 mentors in my 25 years of Real Estate sales , I had very little mentees. I saw myself as a plastic monkey from the barrel who had many monkeys pulling him up but none below that he was lifting up himself.
Writing a book for me was the fastest and most efficient way for me to build more plastic monkeys below me than existed above me. It was a way to build mentees. It was a way to share with the younger generation of today's real estate agents what 65 other real estate mentors shared with me and then mix it up with all of my real life stories of what went right and what went wrong in my long and prosperous career on the front lines of the residential real estate game.
I've always been fascinated by agents who set goals and then think that miraculously they will come true. Of course most never do come true. My hope is this book is used as a road map to get you from the point of setting a goal all the way to the point of achieving that goal. I believe it is a clear description of the roads and the trails that take you from here to there and when followed equal ultimate success.
