    Steve Sims - "The Art of Making Things Happen"

    Steve Sims - "The Art of Making Things Happen"

    Do you know anyone who's worked with Sir Elton John or Elon Musk, sent people down to see the wreck of the Titanic on the sea bed, or closed museums in Florence for a private dinner party and then had Andrea Bocelli serenade them while they eat their pasta? You do now!
     
    Dubbed “The Real Life Wizard of Oz" by Forbes Magazine, Steve Sims is the author of Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen. He is a sought-after coach and speaker at many events including those hosted by the Pentagon and Harvard, and has been featured in more than 30 TV shows and over 60 major publications. 
     
    Sims is a concierge for the rich. You think of a concierge as somebody you approach at a hotel when you need something. Sims reinvented the term to cater to the wealthy who want something unconventional, bordering on the ridiculous (his words), in real life. 
     
    As a concierge for billionaires, Sims goes beyond giving the clients what they need.
     
    “I learned very early on, never give a client what they asked for; give them what they want, lust, and desire,” said Sims, noting that many times, the clients cannot fully intimate what they truly want. 
     
    Nowadays, Sims does more than just cater to people who have fat checkbooks. He’s done that in the last few decades. 
     
    He wants to help a lot of people become successful entrepreneurs before his death.
     
    “I will be happy when I’m on my deathbed and I know I’ve helped enough entrepreneurs do and think differently. If a bricklayer from London can do this, you’re all out of excuses,” said Sims.
     
    The entrepreneur’s first job was as a bricklayer in London. He then tried his luck as a stockbroker but that didn’t pan out. He moved to Hong Kong to do the same job but was fired after just five days. 
     
    He stayed in Hong Kong and found a job as a doorman at a nightclub. That’s when things changed as he realized that with his gift of gab, he could make things happen. 
     
    Sims then managed to make connections, inviting affluent people to the nightclub. He also started organizing parties and doing important events like those hosted by Elton John and the Kentucky Derby, among others. 
     
    Sims’ company, Bluefish, has been the official concierge for the L.A. and New York Fashion Weeks for years. 
     
    The former doorman puts a lot of emphasis on providing solutions rather than selling a product or service. 
     
    “Stop selling and start solving,” he said. 
     
    Sims took some time off his busy schedule to educate us about ‘making things happen’ on our podcast.
     
     
    Here are some of the other topics we covered:
     
    How Sims became the “make a wish foundation” for billionaires   
    Being angry led Sims to go from being a doorman to a concierge for the rich  Never ask a question where the answer can be “no”  “I never market to poor people because I know how it was to be poor”  Memorable experiences include a couple who was married by the pope  Working with Elon Musk  Working with Richard Branson  “Stop selling and start solving”  Being happy and passionate about what you do  When you focus on the bank account, you ignore the relationship  The world has become transactional  Growing and experiencing different things  Opening oneself to opportunities  Who would Steve Sims invite to dinner?   
     
     
    Sims also shares his knowledge about business and providing solutions through his podcast, The Art of Making Things Happen, which is very apt as he does make things happen.

    James Harris - "Positively Chaotic"

    James Harris - "Positively Chaotic"

    The COVID-19 pandemic affected everybody and every industry. But there is always something to learn when the going gets tough.
     
    Even successful real estate broker James Harris wasn’t immune to the effects of the pandemic. He, too, experienced fear and was in a state of anxiety for two weeks. 
     
    But faith is the opposite of fear. He woke up one morning and decided to get back on his feet and not to be crippled with fear.
     
    “I immediately took to social media… I started to get creative. I started to think of outside-the-box ways to market my business,” Harris told us in our latest podcast. 
     
    He had to transform everything from print media to digital. 
     
    One thing that every business should take from the pandemic is that one has to change with the times. COVID-19 certainly provided the learning curve.
     
    Harris is one of the most successful real estate brokers in the U.S. If you think he looks familiar, that’s because he’s one of the stars of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, which is set to return for season 13 this summer. 
     
    His career in real estate started in his teens. Born and raised in London, Harris has always had that entrepreneurial spirit. He made a name for himself as a residential investment agent in the U.K.
     
    Harris then brought his British sophistication to the United States. He is the principal of The Agency Real Estate, and the founder of The PLS, a property listing service. He is also the co-founder of Bond Street Partners, which specializes in high-end real estate. 
     
    The British broker making waves in U.S. real estate may be successful, but he actually doesn’t advise other agents, especially struggling agents, to do what he does. 
     
    Instead, these agents should find themselves and think outside the box in terms of selling themselves. 
     
    “I think, struggling agents may look at successful agents and think, ‘what the hell am I doing differently and how can I be more like that person?’” Harris said. 
     
    Instead, the agent should look at themself and ask: What is my unique selling point?
     
    Everything starts with the person, and it starts with motivation. 
     
    “Work on yourself so you can motivate and help others,” Harris also said.
     
    In the podcast, Harris also talked about how the real estate industry remained strong in the middle of the pandemic--it was a combination of the change in lifestyle and low-interest rates. 
     
    We also discussed the following topics:
    Real estate industry amidst the pandemic How I stayed focus during the pandemic Advice for struggling agents Creativity & thinking outside the box Boutique brokerages Motivation What agents should focus on in 2021 Achieving goals  
    No matter how big the company gets, Harris said there is always room for growth. His goals include continuing to rise and continuing to grow. 
     
    Part of his goal is to bring in “hungry agents” while also helping others invest in real estate. 
     
    Harris also has his own podcast where he talks about keeping a positive outlook despite a chaotic life, hence, the title Positively Chaotic with James Harris.

    Ricky Blair - "How to Unlock Your Potential in Real Estate"

    Ricky Blair - "How to Unlock Your Potential in Real Estate"

    Academic education is not the be-all and end-all of success. Sometimes, a sheer determination can take a person a long way, which is exactly what Ricky Blair experienced.
     
    Blair left school at 16 and immediately started working. He then started a real estate company in London, which won awards and became a subject of a bidding war among big-box real estate companies. 
     
    “I had this burning desire to prove the school system wrong and demonstrate that you could succeed even if you failed an education system,” Blair told us in our latest podcast. 
     
    Blair also founded Platform Seven, a business coaching consultancy that aims to help young individuals unlock their potential in business and in life. The goal is to teach people ideas and principles that they don’t learn in school. 
     
    It’s also his way of giving back considering how important mentoring was for him when he started out in the real estate business. 
     
    “It was huge for me,” Blair said about mentorship. “It saves time. It prevents you from making mistakes.”
     
    Blair has a term for his mentorship program: success therapy. This didn’t just work in real estate, but for businesses across the board. 
     
    Here are some of the topics we covered during our conversation:
    The importance of doing things differently  Less pressure, better performance  Doing the fundamentals right  Real estate is a process  Mentorship  Selling the company  Platform Seven  Education system doesn’t prepare you for the journey ahead (24: 11) Burning desire to succeed  Pausing can make you see clearer  Reminder apps   
     
    Blair also touched on what he wants to see in the future. He hopes that Platform Seven is going to have an impact among Americans just like it did in England. 
     
    Blair has brought Platform Seven to Los Angeles after a successful stint in England. 
     
    On that note, Greater Property Group is also pleased to announce that it has partnered with Platform Seven in providing exclusive mentorship and real estate training to new agents. 
     
    The partnership aims to help new agents kick-start their careers, as well as help established agents take their real estate business to the next level. 
     
    The program will cover the following topics within 90 days:
    Goal Setting What Makes a Great Agent Limiting Beliefs Manifesting / Achieving Goals Patience / The Process Self-Doubt / Fear Work Ethic Discipline & Sacrifice Challenging Times & Making Mistakes Reputation in Business Organization / Efficiency Excellence & Standards Setting You Apart from the Competition How to Be the Best  
    Greater Property Group and Platform Seven are both invested in helping real estate agents unlock their potential by obtaining knowledge and learning new skills.

    Amberly Lago - "True Grit & Grace: Turning Tragedy Into Triumph"

    Amberly Lago - "True Grit & Grace: Turning Tragedy Into Triumph"

    She’s a hope dealer and an inspiration. Amberly Lago almost lost her leg and life after a harrowing road accident, but she turned tragedy into triumph through her resilience and grit. 
     
    Now, she’s teaching people how they, too, can turn any kind of pain or trauma into an opportunity to accomplish something great.
     
    In 2010, Lago was in a motorcycle accident. A 911 call recorded a woman saying: “She needs paramedics, her leg is twisted up and there is blood coming out of her helmet…”
     
    The easiest way out was to have her leg amputated. But Lago, a fitness trainer and dancer, wouldn’t have it. She wouldn’t be who she is if she didn’t have her legs. So, she endured 34 surgeries. Then she learned that her injury also resulted in complex regional pain syndrome, a condition also referred to as suicide disease, wherein a person experiences episodes of intense pain. 
     
    It would have been easier to give up, but Lago had hope and resilience. She details her recovery process in her inspiring book, True Grit and Grace: Turning Tragedy into Triumph. 
     
    In our latest podcast, Lago shares her life before, during, and after the accident that changed her life. Here are some of the topics we covered:
     
    The Hope Dealer Everything Changed in the Blink of an Eye Coming Out of a Coma Taking Power Back What It Means to Be Resilient Listening to Your Inner Self Pain Has Been My Biggest Teacher Getting Over Imposter Syndrome  
    Lago continues to share her story of resilience through her podcast, TED talks, and workshops. She is also a wellness coach and she has graced various television shows like NBC’s Today, The Doctors and Good Morning Lala Land, among others. She has also contributed to magazines like Fit Pregnancy, Health, Shape, and Disability. 
     
    Here’s a fun trivia: she is a fan of our podcast! She said she loves our podcast and that she could sit and binge our episodes.
