    410 - A Sustainable Social Media Strategy for Agents (with Katie Day)

    In speaking with Katie Day, today’s Stay Paid guest, we were struck by her matter-of-fact approach to running her real estate business. Hers is an understated success story. Essentially, it is a tale of an entrepreneur who has built a business by adhering to fundamentally sound principles on a consistent basis. During her interview, she talks about two of these essentials: posting a variety of content to social media at a sustainable cadence, and maintaining consistently applied standards.

    409 - 5 Real Estate Tech Tools for Realtors (Must-Haves for 2023)

    409 - 5 Real Estate Tech Tools for Realtors (Must-Haves for 2023)

    In this week’s Silver Dollar edition of Stay Paid, we suggest five types of technology that real estate agents and, with some modification, all service professionals should add to their toolbox. These technologies will increase your efficiency and, if not already in place, likely point to some areas of your business where you could be more effective. Listen to hear about which of the five types of technology you need to give first priority to installing, discover a key feature you should look for in any system you buy, and find out the feature missing from your content that, if added, would make it 50% more likely to appear on page one of Google.

    408 - No Plan B: From Poverty to Millionaire Entrepreneur (with Letisha Jackson)

    408 - No Plan B: From Poverty to Millionaire Entrepreneur (with Letisha Jackson)

    This week’s guest on Stay Paid is Letisha Jackson, the CEO of Jackson Insurance Group in Tupelo, Mississippi. Letisha’s a 7-figure producer now, but when she started out, she couldn’t meet her bills. She had so little that when her husband bought a $1 McDonald’s cheeseburger with some found change, they had a huge argument. How she pulled herself up might sound like a hero’s story, but Letisha credits her eventual success to her adoption of an “I’ve got to make this work” mentality. As you listen to her interview, you’ll hear example after example of how taking action leads to progress—proving (once again) that the fundamentals are fundamental for a reason.
