TAP 209. A brilliant hack for changing your state-of-mind. An interview with Nicole Davidson.
I want you to try this because it works!
Our thinking controls our lives. It determines how we love, live, earn, play, create and work.
In fact, our state of mind is obviously central to all decisions made and, at the end of the day, our quality of life.
So what if you could 'hack' your thinking to rapidly get yourself back on track if you're having a crappy day or just stewing over something that's getting in the way of your success?
When I recently connected with Nicole Davidson, I felt like she had given me a special gift: The power to change my thinking and my state of mind whenever I wanted. Is that not a priceless possession?
Nicole Davidson is the founder of Growth to Success, a coach, a lover of conversations that matter, and an in-demand speaker.
The author of ‘How To Put the Balance in Your Business – An Owner’s Guide to Having it All’, Nicole helps real estate agents connect to the gold they have inside of them so they can show up more powerfully. Nicole is committed to helping real estate agents become the best version of themselves in order to successfully grow their business and navigate their careers on their own terms, while balancing the often-competing energies of work and life.
Nicole supports leaders and businesses to effectively harness the energy of their people to create workplaces in which everyone can bring the best of who they are.

TAP 207. The best ideas for great results in a changing real estate market. An interview with Right At Home co-founder Howard Drukarsh
A few weeks back, my friend Danny Wood tapped me on the shoulder while I was watching a speaker at Toronto's REALiTY+ Conference and told me I had to meet someone.
I followed Danny out into the foyer and was delighted to meet Howard Drukarsh, a fellow podcaster, career real estate legend and co-founder at Right At Home Realty, Canada's largest independent real estate brokerage with almost 6000 members.
We only chatted for a few minutes but right there I knew I had to somehow get Howard on the show.
In this interview, Howard and I share our thoughts on what agents need to be doing in this current market to not only survive but grow their business and their brand while many of their competitors are wondering what on earth to do.
Many thanks to Howard for joining me on this call and sharing his very best ideas and strategies.
Howard's podcast guest list reads like a who's-who of Canadian real estate excellence. Can I suggest you check it out here: RealEstateWithHowardDrukarsh.com

About Howard Drukarsh
Howard was born and raised in the working-class neighbourhood of Downsview in Toronto Canada. He spent his formative years working in the family variety store and snack bar before deciding to pursue post-secondary education, he was the first member of his family to do so. Howard attended York University and after graduating with a degree in Political Science he took a position at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Audience Relations. While at the CBC he recognized that for him to move forward in his career he would need an education in business, to that end he enrolled in the University of Windsor and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Seeking new challenges Howard began to work in Advertising, he had several positions with boutique agencies but soon felt that his true calling lay elsewhere. He wanted to explore his entrepreneurial side and decided that Real Estate would provide the best opportunity for him to do so.
Howard worked with several brokerages before settling at Johnston & Daniel A Division of Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage, it was here that he met the late Arthur Bartram and the two decided to start their own brokerage. Arthur had seen a new business model attracting hundreds of Realtors in the US and thought that with some tweaking it could be successful in the Canadian market. This new venture required funding and after a few setbacks in that regard, they were introduced to Ron Peddicord who possessed the business and financial expertise needed to scale up the operation as well as attract investment. Ron soon joined Arthur and Howard as the 3rd co-founder of Right at Home Realty. In May of 2004 Right at Home Realty opened its doors, 16 years later it has grown to become Canada’s largest independent brokerage with close to 6000 members.
A consummate Realtor with a vast and insightful knowledge of Canadian real estate, Howard is often asked to provide comment on issues affecting the real estate industry. Over his career, he has had the pleasure to serve on the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) Board of Directors, the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB), and continues to serve on the Board of Right at Home Realty.
TAP: 206. What's going to happen to the real estate market in 2023? An interview with John Michailidis
What started out as an everyday interview between an author and a podcaster, ended in a very frank and revealing discussion about the current property market, some interesting economic warning signs and perhaps, most importantly, one experienced investor's informed view as to what might happen in the year ahead and what real estate agents should be doing to build their war chest of investment opportunities going forward.
What's John's message?We don't get too far into our call when John reveals his true opinion about the banks (He calls the Banksters) and the faceless Wall Street investment giants that are pre-occupied with lining their own pockets with your money.
Instead, John advises to take the time to be aware of what's happing in the world. MAKE the time to read the Wall Street Journal or your local financial daily and study and follow the better and more reputable financial advisors who don't have a secret agenda to sway your thinking.
John finishes our call with a powerful message to his real estate brothers and sisters. He says that we work so hard to build wealth for our clients and often ignore or neglect the investment opportunities that will determine our ultimate wealth position.
John Michailidis, MSIRE, JD, is an attorney and entrepreneur with degrees in economics, international real estate, and law. As a young man he served with the U.S. Army as an 82nd Airborne paratrooper. With a career spanning 30+ years as a broker, property manager, author, educator, mentor, group investment sponsor, and coach he actively works with those interested in fortifying their futures, preserving their assets, and leaving a legacy that lasts.

TAP 205. Is farming the future of real estate success? An interview with Launch Your Farm founder, Ryan Smith
I'm a BIG fan of setting up your farm to win more listings and make more sales. But where do you start? How big should it be and what are you doing to reach out and connect with the folks that live there? To get the answers to these questions and more, I went to Ryan Smith from Launch My Farm.
Ryan believes farming is the future for real estate success
He’s on a mission to share his new project “Launch Your Farm” with the real estate world and to ignite the same excitement in other agents.
Ryan became passionate about geographic farming after relocating a number of times over his 14 years in real estate forcing him to rebuild his business multiple times.
Having tried almost every strategy in the book, he quickly realized that combining your strategies and tactics in a hyper-local fashion was the best way to build momentum and success in real estate. That was when he became a real farming fanatic.
After coaching, training and interviewing some of the top agents across North America, Ryan realized his true passion was in showing other agents how to reach their full potential by helping them develop systems and tools to build the best geographic farming foundations for their local markets.
To learn more about geographic farming and how to grow your business, head over to LaunchYourFarm.com to get access to Ryan's podcast, marketing ideas, resources and more.
