ORDINARY WILL NOT MAKE A
BETTER MARKET CENTER!
ORDINARY WILL NOT MAKE A BETTER YOU!
I NEED YOUR HELP: I now have an electronic signature program but I desperately need your help. When you scan your documents into the Paperless system I need you make absolute certain that all the forms are upright (vertical) and not saved lying on their side or even upside down. The electronic software does not enable me to rotate them and as such the electronic signature WILL NOT WORK. About 1/3 of the documents are submitted incorrectly in this regard.
QUOTE: “Ordinary will not make a better Market Center”, adapted quote of Kevin Carroll from the 2010 Keller Williams Realty Family Reunion Keynote Presentation. Nor will “ordinary” or “average” make a better you; think about it.
FIRST THINGS FIRST: If you are not following me on www.twitter.com/gymbeaux143, shame on you. Get on the band wagon, even Jeffrey Gitomer, John Maxwell and Mo Anderson are following me. If you don’t have a Twitter page, shame on you for that as well; this is where your business will be if not already there. You either start getting involved in social media or you fall way behind. Get on the BUS! Go to www.twitter.com and start one today!

ELECTRONIC BROKER’S SIGNATURE: I now have the ability to insert an electronic signature on documents via the Internet. This means I can review and sign documents from anywhere there is Internet Access. To make this process run smoothly, you need to group your documents uploaded to the Paperless system by grouping together only those documents requiring the Broker’s signature such the Listing Agreement and Listing Agreement Addendum. Few if any of the other listing documents require the broker’s signature so they should be uploaded separately. Non-paperless documents should be sent via email and I will return them with the electronic signature affixed via email.

EXCERPT FROM TOMMY NEWBERRY’S BOOK, SUCCESS IS NOT AN ACCIDENT: This pretty much says it all about your future. The book should be in everyone’s personal library and definitely given to everyone’s children. It is a blueprint to help you achieve whatever it is you want to achieve in life. www.SuccessIsNotAnAccident.com
Remember, you can and do – either intentionally or haphazardly - determine what you believe. What you choose to believe about yourself is completely up to you. The important question is this: What should you believe? In light of who you intend to become during your lifetime, what must you believe today in order to achieve the right results tomorrow? We know that beliefs come first and results come second. So what should you believe? An accurate answer to this question requires that you first develop complete clarity about your future. The clearer your vision for the future is, the easier it will be to determine what you must first believe in order to get there.
