    Dustin Brohm Returns: How to Win the Social Media Game in 2022 & Why He Deleted His Instagram Account

    Dustin Brohm Returns: How to Win the Social Media Game in 2022 & Why He Deleted His Instagram Account

    In today’s episode, Dustin Brohm returns for a special catch-up episode. When it comes to marketing, Dustin really knows his stuff, and in this conversation he provides in-depth tactics and insights about content creation, and gives us an update about his own podcast. So much has changed about social media in the last couple of years, and if we’re planning to use it for business growth, we have to know what audiences expect today. Dustin will also share why he decided to delete his entire Instagram and start from scratch with 14,000 followers. 
     
    When you’re doing all the right things, but your Instagram account hits a ceiling in engagement, it could be the algorithm holding a past transgression against you. Buying followers is something a lot of people do in the social media game, but that can come back to bite us in the future as Dustin discovered. 
     
    Starting over with a clean slate, not weighed down by past sins, could be the best move, and in Dustin’s case, the decision paid off quickly. His engagement went through the roof, and he discovered that you can achieve more with less followers when you’re doing social media right. The real magic happens when the people who follow you and engage with your content do so by choice not because you paid for it.

    The Real Estate Mamba Mentality II: Jay White On Shift Scripts & The Compound Effect of Practice

    The Real Estate Mamba Mentality II: Jay White On Shift Scripts & The Compound Effect of Practice

    In today’s episode, recent guest Jay White returns for another show because after the first conversation, we HAD to do a follow-up. At the tail-end of our last conversation, Jay talked about his “real estate Mamba mentality” and the fact that his team does script practices multiple times a day. I knew I had to have him back on the show to dig deeper on this. We also recently went to Ben Kinney’s BuiltHOW event where Michael Phelps was a speaker, and he also talked about the power of practice. It’s crazy because in the few weeks since Jay’s first episode, the market has changed even more, so his insights on practicing and sharpening our skills are extremely relevant. 
     
    Jay White is the Operator/Partner at the Jay White Group with PLACE Inc. Their expertise is understanding how to help people get “the most money for their property OR the most property for their money. 
     
    One of the most impressive things about Kobe Bryant was his mentality on perfecting his craft. He understood and personified the compound effect of practicing twice, thrice even four times more than everyone else because ultimately that’s what creates a gap so big no one can ever catch you. 
     
    Real estate’s no different. Imagine how much better you’d be than other agents (heck, your old self) if you practiced scripts on a daily basis? In a market where survival will be ensured by skill set, multiplying your practice time is non-negotiable. If you’re doing what you need to do everyday, the compounding effect is exponential - you’ll look up in future and realize that much like Kobe, you’re in a league of your own.

    Legacy is Mostly BS: Making Crockpot Money, Fulfillment & Unapologetic Badassery w/Templeton Walker

    Legacy is Mostly BS: Making Crockpot Money, Fulfillment & Unapologetic Badassery w/Templeton Walker

    In today’s episode, I get to sit down with one of my good friends and host of Heart Melter, Templeton Walker. Templeton and I have a really in-depth conversation about our journeys in real estate, getting clear on what you really want, and we even share a couple of cringey but hilarious stories you’ve probably never heard from either of us before. Our conversation isn’t just about real estate, we reflect on a ton of stuff, talk about the ideas and insights that have been really impactful in our lives, and what we’re looking forward to going forward. If you follow Temp on Instagram you’ll know that he leads his life with authenticity and vulnerability, and he brings spades of this to discussion.

     

    Templeton Walker is an investor, entrepreneur, Realtor and host of Heart Melter. Starting as just a single agent, to then a top team leader, to business owner, Templeton now runs 5 vertically integrated, stabilized companies.

     

    Real estate is an industry where the path to getting rich is so simple, it doesn’t require a genius. It just needs a patient and consistent individual who can make a couple of great decisions. This, and the ability to have a business that fits with who we are means we can design exactly what we want for ourselves.

     

    What’s sad, however, is that not enough agents take advantage of this privilege and really dig deep to find what fulfills them, and we end up living our lives based on what looks cool on social media and what gets celebrated from the stage. The result is us taking a path, and getting halfway up the mountain only to realize that we’re not on the right mountain for us.

     

    At best, we just end up with a really inauthentic life that we don’t actually enjoy and at the very worst, we end up with an emotional and financial house of cards that can topple at any moment.

    Pain is Your Friend: Crystal Hughes On Turning Perceived Failures into Game Changers

    Pain is Your Friend: Crystal Hughes On Turning Perceived Failures into Game Changers

    In today’s episode, I’m joined by agent, author, coach and friend Crystal Hughes. Crystal has such amazing energy, a huge willingness to share, a love for giving back to the real estate industry, and a really amazing and inspiring story. Crystal’s approach of care and humor is one of the superpowers that makes her such a great coach and agent, and there’s so much we can learn from her own journey. She shares what she learned from her sister’s childhood illness, how she got started in real estate, and how a moment of perceived failure actually set her up for massive success. 
     
    Crystal Hughes is a Licensed Realtor since 2013, Certified Success Magazine Coach, Previous Sales Manager for Top 1% Team in eXp in WA, and the author of Winning in Real Estate. She was voted Realtor of the Year & Realtor Achievement Award in 2021, and she’s a previous Team Leader of a Keller Williams Realty Franchise. Crystal’s passion and expertise is helping people accelerate their goals with clarity and execution. 
     
    Between market shifts, missteps and things that don’t work out how we’d hoped, we’ve all had moments that really felt like failures in the moment, but turned out to be the best things. Seemingly detrimental in the short-term, these failures actually help us identify what’s missing in our businesses, skills, or lives and then figure out how to improve. Pain can be our friend if we’re able to find the gift in it and see what we can gain from it. 
     
    It’s the worst things we’ve ever gone through, and things we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies that become the foundation of our successes, our biggest personal lessons and things we teach others.

    Jay White On The Real Estate Mamba Mentality & Why He Chose PLACE Inc.

    Jay White On The Real Estate Mamba Mentality & Why He Chose PLACE Inc.

    In today’s episode, I’m joined by one of my good friends and the owner/operator of Jay White Group at PLACE Inc. Over the years, it has been great watching Jay grow his business, grow as a leader and continue to win. Jay joined PLACE Inc, and the level of growth he has seen in a down market is incredible. Jay sits down with us to talk about his journey, his perspective on leadership, what led him to PLACE and how that has impacted his business. In a year where the market’s down, Jay has achieved a hell of a jump with a team of agents who are in their first 6-12 months of production. I’m excited to pick Jay’s brain and hear about his real estate Mamba Mentality and he’s preparing to thrive and stay relevant going forward. Not every real estate organization has a heart for the future of the agent. In fact, many operators want to keep us dumb and in the dark, which is especially disconcerting considering what’s happening in and around the real estate industry. With the market shifting, tech disruption, and the threat of commission compression, it’s hard not to feel anxious, exposed and vulnerable right now. Now more than ever being partnered up with the right organization builds a moat around our businesses, and it is the thing that will help us not just survive the future, but thrive and continue to be relevant.

Their expertise is understanding how to help people get “the most money for their property OR the most property for their money. CTA ​​Please leave us a review at https://ratethispodcast.com/nla
