During this episode of the Lab Coat Agents Podcast, host Jeff Pfitzer talks to Jason Martin – a real-estate leader in the DMV market. Jason has recently released a book titled “This is your captain speaking.” Today’s episode is special because Jeff and Jason are not going to talk about business; instead, they are going to talk about life lessons.
After completing college, Jason was a sports anchor for a few years and then he got into real estate in 2003. He runs a team in Washington D.C. It’s always fine to talk about the numbers but there is more to the story that you can’t forget. On a daily basis, Jason focuses on being the best version of himself, as a father, husband, and business leader. Those close to him reap the benefit of his best behavior. In your professional world, when do you think you are operating at a peak performance? Jeff shares that he is in his prime when he gets the opportunity to talk about his passions, usually it involves coaching or helping someone. Passion is what excites you and links you to success in business. Jason looks at businesses as an opportunity to continuously learn something new, apply new skills, build relations, etc. How can someone find their niche? What about your business excites you? Jeff and Jason discuss how you can draw energy from the work that you do. Jeff discusses his career journey as well, the challenges he has faced, and what he learned from his mistakes. Documenting your thoughts can give you a clear picture of your life and business. Seek deeply to understand the “squeeze” of what a new opportunity is going to cost you and what it is worth to you. Jason stresses the importance of self-awareness. He asks listeners, “How can you be a better version of yourself?”. Mental and physical exercise brings balance to life and business. What practical strategies can you use? In his book, Jason talks about legacy and what one leaves behind. He also talks about work ethics that one should follow and how to open up to real conversations. Adversity is an opportunity. Jason inspires listeners to challenge themselves and be passionate about life and success. 3 Key Points:
