And just like that we’ve rolled into a brand-new financial year. I like to view this time of year as the perfect time for a pit stop on your way to your yearly goals. It’s time to review the goals you’ve set for yourself this year, check in, see how you are tracking and then make any adjustments needed to either get back on track or stretch those goals further! So where do you start? If you have purchased one of my #BuildYourBestLife Success Manuals or are a member of MILLION
Building your best life isn’t something that just happens to you. It’s about recognizing opportunities when they are presented to you, taking full advantage of them and treasuring those that come your way. Often the opportunities that are hugely impactful and life changing are those that feel the smallest. In the first session of my ‘MASTERMIND with Sherrie’ program, we started out the series by setting ourselves up to build our best lives and were incredibly lucky to hear fr
The last 18 months have turned the real estate industry upside down and forced us to innovate the ways that we have operated in the past. For those that have experienced multiple lockdowns, there have been even more challenges. As we are move towards opening back up, now is the perfect opportunity to prep your business, plot your pathway and set yourself up to take advantage of the bounce back of the market. There will be an opportunity for business recovery if you set yourse
Social Media is an important tool for a real estate agent today. What better way to find your clients than to be on the platforms that they frequent the most? It’s a modern prospecting tool that can bring in leads, nurture prospective clients and keep in touch with past clients. You can communicate with your whole audience through a single post, so it’s crucial that you are allocating the right amount of time, energy, and resources to developing and creating content. In real
It always feels like it sneaks up on you, doesn’t it! EOFY is here. In amongst the rush of wrapping up your financials, EOFY is a great time to stop and take time out to reassess where your business is sitting and where you want to be in 3, 6, 12 months’ time. So, where do you start? Step one is the most important. Schedule in a block of time that gives you space, with no interruptions, to focus on you and your business. Book out a room, visit a café, it doesn’t matter where
How do you build the plane whilst you are flying? Last weekend, AREC represented another first for my business and another project where we needed to implement an idea that we didn’t know anything about how to do it, let alone have systems and processes in place for it! COVID pushed all of us into a period where we are rapidly innovating and pivoting our businesses but with this can come stress and chaos. But I’m here to tell you that there is a way to make things run smoothe
70 days. That’s right, there are only 70 days left until we finish this financial year out. While the first half of this year had move FAST, rounding up the end of FY2021 means that it’s time to check-in and see how well you and your business are travelling towards the goals you set for this year! Reviewing your yearly plan not only keeps you accountable, but it also keeps you focussed on the end goal and provides you with the opportunity to pivot or change if need be. So, wh
Dream big. Set goals. Take action. I’ve always been a big believer in these three elements. Following this process has led me down the path to achieving things I never thought possible AND has allowed me to build my best life. A lot of people are resistant to goal setting. BUT done the right way they give you aim, direction, a pathway to follow and a plan. Having clear goals and a plan creates meaning in your life. They can help you navigate tough times and work towards somet
Finish this sentence, one day I will… Whenever I ask this question of people, I receive all kinds of responses. One day I will:
List more properties.
Gain more market share.
Take more time off.
Break more records.
Travel the world (well, hopefully, we can soon!) We all have the BIG audacious dream, that we plan to ‘one day’ achieve. But when exactly is ‘one day’? What is stopping you from building the life of your dreams, starting tomorrow? If you’re out there procrastin
Like you, I’m attached to my phone. It’s a lifeline in almost every situation – business and life! I use my calendar and notes often when I’m out and about BUT… when it comes to planning, digital often isn’t my friend. Even if you don’t want to believe it, it may not be yours either. One of the best organisational tools that you can use is not on your computer or phone. Hear me out… You can maximise your organisation in 2021, by using a paper planner. I don’t just LOVE using
Before we move ahead and close the book on 2020, it’s time to turn back time, break down the year and conduct an analysis. With the year that we have, I can understand any reluctance that you may have on revisiting a year that was turbulent and challenging. BUT… Looking back isn’t only a way to see where you can improve, up-level and implement new system and structures, it’s a time where you can look at what you achieved in the last 12 months and celebrate it as well! Look at
With less than 3 weeks till the end of the year, how are you rounding out your 2020? With focus and forward planning? Or are you ending the year in chaos and planning a refresh come January 1? If you are the former, then a big congratulations to you! Closing off 2020 and pre-planning for 2021 will allow you to truly switch off on any holidays that you have coming for you and give you a head start in the new year, so you hit the ground running. If you are the latter, consider
It’s officially December. We’ve made it (well almost!). After what 2020 has tried and tested us with, the pivoting (there’s that word!), the isolating, allll the learning and re-skilling, the implementing of new ways of doing business and the strength we have found to get through it all. We are all tired. Exhausted even. BUT… before you start thinking of shutting down for the end of the year before you start planning your Christmas Day, your New Year’s Eve, any time off or ho

As a consumer, if we are looking for any kind of product or service, we google it. Typically, at the top of the organic search results, it’s the social media profiles - Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn that appear not only on the first page but at the very top. These channels spend a lot of money to ensure that they are on page one of any search result, so it’s important that we embrace our social media channels and leverage off their investment! Smart agents have embraced so
2019 was a HUGE year. A quick scroll through my photos of the last year highlighted all the adventures that I got to experience. I highly recommend doing this yourself! Flick back through the camera roll on your phone and go down memory lane on all the things that you did over the year. I’d even forgotten a few!!! Here were some of my favourite moments: January: I started the year with it a trip to New York to attend Inman Connect with PropertyTV interviewing the best of the
So, you’re the only one in the office. The phones are quiet, and no one is walking in the office front door. It’s easy to get caught up endlessly surfing the net and spending $$$ on those extended boxing day sales, but I have a better idea for you. If you’re working during this period of the year, there are things you can do now, that can put you well ahead of the competition in your marketplace. First and foremost, you need to conduct a 2019 analysis – Your year in review. L
The Christmas and New Year’s break is finally here! 2019 has been a big one and now after a full-on year, you finally have a gap in your schedule to take time off to recharge. This festive season is a great time to not only spend time with family and friends - There’s nothing better than coming together, laughing, creating memories and enjoying good conversation. But it’s also time to tap out and take a day (or more) off to recharge. Taking time out is self-care. It’s also a
Traditionally, prospecting has been all about door knocking, phone calls and letter box drops. But in 2020 there are so many other ways to prospect. Now I’m not saying these options don’t have their uses and they should still be a staple of your prospecting plan. But 2020 offers you a chance to think a little outside the prospecting square. There are ways to prospect that are more comfortable to you, that suit your personality and the way that you operate your business better
There is a lot going on in our world today. The real estate industry can be a reactive industry and very quickly we can find ourselves operating in a state of chaos. For the most part, there will always be a lot going on in our lives. But it doesn’t mean that we need to remain operating in chaos. How do we get out of chaos? By setting goals and breaking them down into small daily steps. I constantly see people in our industry with huge achievable goals but with no plan or str
