    EP 88: How To Turn Your Clients Into Superfans with Brittany Hodak

    EP 88: How To Turn Your Clients Into Superfans with Brittany Hodak

    I picked up the book Creating Superfans: How To Turn Your Customers Into Lifelong Advocates, the day it was released (quite by accident!) and was hooked immediately.  From the fantastic colors of the cover, to the easability of reading it.  Author Brittany Hodak paints such an easy to understand picture of what happens when your customers turn into lifelong advocates for your biz. 

    Join our conversation to hear how Brittany breaks down having an experience that people can't help but talk about, the secret is getting people to care about you, what apathy is and why it kills your biz, and more.  

    In your podcast player, please give an extra click to rate the show (or even take a minute to leave a review) — it’s very helpful!  And as Brittany says "Always Ask For What You Need!"

    Want to grab a copy of her book?  Text the word "superfan" to me at 678-736-8055 and I'll send you an easy link to order it.

    Women Leaders In Real Estate Featuring Haley Cutter of Compass

    Women Leaders In Real Estate Featuring Haley Cutter of Compass

    Asa part of my series about women leaders of the Real Estate industry, I had the pleasure of interviewing Haley Cutter, Founder of Cutter Luxe Living by Compass!

    After growing up in the Boston area and graduating from Emerson College, Haley Cutter began her career working for a top NYC advertising agency, but returned to Boston to get her MBA at Northeastern University. Once she graduated, she shifted gears to the real estate industry. In 2014 she co-founded Live In Luxury Real Estate at Douglas Elliman, and in 2021 launched Cutter Luxe Living at Compass as sole Founder and Managing Broker, which is now one of Boston’s top Luxury Real Estate groups. In December of 2021 Cutter Luxe Living had a record-breaking month with $20M+ in closings. Cutter Luxe Living serves Boston’s most exclusive downtown neighborhoods and surrounding communities, all led by Haley’s driving force for a better client experience. The brokerage is currently expanding into New Hampshire. In addition to running her Real Estate Brokerage, Haley has founded a non-profit organization that works with families who have suffered the tragedy of home fires.

    In this episode we discuss:
    Her foundation, The Cut Fire Fund
    How she places each member of her team in the role that fits them best
    How her marketing background has been a huge part of her success as a Realtor

    Check out the Cut Fire Fund at https://www.thecutfirefund.com/

    EP 85: 3 Easy Steps To Overcoming Perfection Paralysis

    EP 85: 3 Easy Steps To Overcoming Perfection Paralysis

    I'm coming in hot today with a shortie episode on 3 easy ways to overcome perfection paralysis.  It's a syndrome that affects us ALL but the good news is there's no need to stay stuck in the loop!

    Stop starting at the cursor on your screen and get into action on whatever it is that has you stuck.  From email sequences, to social media and everything in between there's really no reason to spend more than 45 minutes EVER feeling like a failure and not just doing the dang thing. 

    In this episode I go over:
    1.  Recognizing that Perfection Paralysis is really just procrastination at it's finest
    2.  Chunking down a project into smaller bites to make it manageable
    3.  Letting go of comparing yourself to your competitors.

    Did you find this shortie episode helpful?  If so I'd love for you to take a few quick seconds and leave a review.  It's how the podcast goddesses recommend me to other women just like YOU and we gotta band together and help each other out.  Can I get an amen sista?

    EP 84: The Year Of The Sphere Starts With Customer Experience

    If you want the majority of your business to run by referral or sphere, then the overall customer experience had better become your number 1 priority.

    Every entrepreneur thinks their experience is great.  None of us set out to do business with the intentionality of "let it suck".  The question is this:
    Do you really understand how to create an experience that results in Super Fans who rave about it?

    In today's episode I'm diving into the mindset behind customer experience, why it's critical and giving you some insights to consider.
