We truly had your husband, Jay Papasan, as considered one of our very first company on the present a pair years in the past. So, speaking to him, he’s talked about you numerous and talked concerning the household quite a bit. So, that is very thrilling that I lastly get a chance to nearly meet you. So, Wendy, are you able to inform our listeners somewhat bit about you and what you do?

Wendy:
Positive. Properly, the sensation’s mutual. I’m so glad to be right here and, like everyone else, I’m a giant fan. I like what you guys are doing. Yeah, I’m out of the Austin, Texas metro space. I run an actual property group known as the Papasan Properties Group. We even have a couple of areas in Houston and Minneapolis, Minnesota. I’ve a house restore and handyman transforming firm that I run. And, then after all, my husband’s additionally a serial enterprise proprietor and an govt at Keller Williams. He runs a pair firms. I’m in control of our actual property empire. I began that after I was a keep at house mother and that was my first foray into actual property. I used to be truly an investor earlier than I received my actual property license. And, that’s type of, my ardour.
And, like all these different women, I’m the mother of two great youngsters. They’re 14 and 16. I’m fairly excited as a result of we simply received our sizzling water turned on after 18 days of being off. And, if you happen to dwell with two youngsters and no sizzling water, you possibly can think about, it simply magnified the impact of getting no sizzling water. So, I’m tremendous excited. I’m right here, I’m clear, I’m contemporary, I’m able to go.

Carol:
Anyone watching this on video noticed that my jaw, actually, the ground. And, it took me a couple of minute and a half to tug it again up as a result of I can’t even wrap my head round 18 days-

Wendy:
It’s been fairly smelly round right here.

Carol:
Oh, my goodness, you’re a marvel lady. That’s unbelievable. Properly, thanks a lot for sharing all of that data. I’ve received to let you know, my thoughts is somewhat bit blown proper now, the 4 of you, once more, individually, and collectively are not any joke. You may have so many issues happening and so a lot of our group members face these identical challenges. And, we attempt to determine, how will we realistically make this all occur, proper? I don’t learn about every of you, however, I feel, apparently, the dynamics are much more difficult while you add extra folks into your group, proper? So, you generally get your personal circulate happening and you then add one or two extra folks. However, you very cohesively constructed this amazingly superbly functioning group collectively, along with all your personal ventures that you’ve got happening.
So, I don’t imply to sound cliche, however I might love some suggestions for our group members on how do you do all of it. And, I might love so that you can take a look at it by means of two lenses. How do you handle it in your personal private lives and your lives at house and constructing your companies, with your loved ones and so forth, fighting being a mother or father, in addition to how would you collectively handle all of it along with these companions, with these group members, that you just depend on and rely on collectively?

Vija:
I like that query, Carol. That is Vija, by the best way, you’ll get used to our voices, I promise. And, the explanation I find it irresistible, might be the primary query, I feel all of us get is, how do you do it? Proper, women. Everybody, how do you do all of it? And, we don’t? The factor is, we don’t do all of it. What we do is, we continually function with a set of priorities. It’s like triage, fixed triage. You filter it by means of your priorities, it’s a must to be very targeted, and it’s a must to very clearly perceive what your high 20% actions are in each circle of your life. So, that’s like your loved ones life, your well being, your religious life and, by the best way, your corporation and a number of companies. Everyone knows that some companies take extra instances than others at completely different junctures in numerous seasons. And, there’s simply priorities. Wendy at all times says this nice proverb. Let’s see if I get it proper, Wendy. “For those who chase two rabbits, you’ll not catch both one.”

Wendy:
I feel that’s truly from The ONE Factor, however thanks for attributing it to me.

Vija:
I’m simply going to go forward and say you probably did it. The Wendy proverb.

Sarah:
We all know you’re the brains, Wendy.

Vija:
[crosstalk 00:12:57] the Wendy proverb.

Wendy:
Yeah, nicely, I like that Vija, that’s 100% so vital, is to have a really clear sense of imaginative and prescient and precedence to your life. And, for me, that begins with understanding what your private mission is. I consider that everyone is right here on Earth. God put each considered one of us right here for a purpose. And, so taking the time to actually perceive your mission in life… So, for me, my mission is to empower and encourage large pondering leaders to create lives of abundance. And, so what that permits me to do is, it permits me to say no to the issues that don’t align with my mission, and to actually let every little thing else go. I feel, for lots of us entrepreneurs, that’s a giant battle, we’re sure folks. We like doing plenty of issues, we like juggling loads of balls. And, having that clear sense of imaginative and prescient that begins with a private mission is simply paramount.

J:
I like that.

Seychelle:
I feel that’s so good, Wendy. And, each time I hear that, it’s nonetheless such a great reminder. Each time I hear it, I can’t hear it sufficient. I feel, too, while you’re an entrepreneur, oftentimes it’s a must to get good at loads of issues actually shortly. And, that may be each a superpower and in addition considered one of our biggest weaknesses. So, as we’re rising our companies, oftentimes we get so targeted on progress and rising our enterprise and constructing this empire that you just actually overlook to cease and switch round and ask, what do I actually need? Proper? Whose life am I dwelling? What actually brings me pleasure?
And, I feel that may typically be among the scariest questions, is actually digging deep and internally asking and creating that imaginative and prescient like Wendy was speaking about, as a result of I feel actually digging into our deepest needs and constructing a enterprise that funds and helps that, could be truthfully among the hardest half. The enterprise elements simple, it’s the precise internal digging that we’ve got to do to get there, I feel, that may be generally the toughest.

Wendy:
That’s true.

Sarah:
Yeah, that’s so good, Sey. I feel, that, that’s what has been so exceptional about our tribe of entrepreneurs and empire builders, proper. It’s like, all of us have quite a bit happening, we simply shared all that we’ve got happening, and so many instances we give attention to so many yeses and our world will get loopy, proper? Individuals come as much as us, how do you do all of it, proper, as a result of they see all of those yeses. However in the meantime, we all know that the actually key to success is definitely saying not more than you say, sure.
And, I keep in mind, a few years in the past, about three to 4 years in the past, after I first got here into our tribe of entrepreneurs and females that assist one another with this, Wendy requested, stated, “What are you guys saying no to proper now?” There was 11 of us within the room and I keep in mind sitting there, and I used to be, “Properly, I’m going to go final.” As a result of, I’ve been nailing it at this no factor, I’ve stated no to so many issues. I’ve been hiring folks. I’m going to attend until Wendy will get to me final, proper? And, I feel she did one individual after which she’s, “Okay, Sarah, you want an entire sheet. There’s so many issues that we all know you’re saying sure to too many issues.” I stated, “No, I’m saying no to loads of issues.” I employed all these completely different folks to assist me. Then, she began saying, “So what time are you getting house,” and issues like that. And, I began reflecting, “Properly, Monday by means of Friday, I get house each night time at 10 PM. I lacking each bedtime, however two instances an evening.”
I sat there and it actually hit me that I’m lacking, principally, a key time of my daughter’s life. She was six on the time. A key time of my daughter’s life the place I’m lacking extra bedtimes than I’m there for. I made the dedication that day to be there extra for my daughter. And, truthfully, that second modified my life. As a result of, I noticed that each single sure, we’re saying no to one thing else. And, what we don’t need, is we don’t need the no to be to that greater life. We don’t need the no to be to that greater life, which is our household, which is our key relationships. And, so each time you say sure, simply look, who am I saying no to within the course of? And, then encompass your self by folks that can encourage you to maintain saying no. You need to be saying not more than saying sure.

Wendy:
Properly, and what I like about that story, Sarah, is, since then, are you able to simply share with the listeners what your corporation has completed when it comes to income?

Sarah:
Yeah, so, on the time, we have been doing about 5.7 million in gross fee earnings. So, we have been within the high groups of Keller Williams on the time, however we actually have tripled our earnings. So, final yr, we did 15.7 million. We now have 130 completely different group members. We’re primary in a number of markets. And, it’s all as a result of I allowed for different folks. So, each time we are saying no to one thing, it’s giving another person a chance to say sure, proper. And, so after I stated okay, guys, I’m going to begin leaving the workplace daily at 5:30, it gave my group an opportunity to say, I’m going to join the chance there to take among the issues off Sarah’s plate. And, so then it allowed for us to truly develop at a quicker charge. So, generally we’re slowing our personal self down, our enterprise progress down, as a result of we preserve saying sure to too many issues.

Vija:
Can I simply give somewhat context there, guys?

Carol:
Sure, please, Vija, what you go?

Vija:
2% of girls owned companies have income over one million {dollars}. And, I simply wish to pause and amplify Sarah Reynolds, 15 million in income final yr. It simply can’t slide by as a result of it’s so large. When she launched herself, she was so humble. I feel she’s most likely high three or high 5 women-owned actual property groups within the nation. And, I wouldn’t even say groups, I might name that an organization, cross state. And, she is among the greatest leaders and enterprise operators I’ve ever had the pleasure of realizing. So, I simply wished to pause a second as a result of I used to be listening to your story and I’m like, God, you’re good. You might be simply [crosstalk 00:18:46]-

Sarah:
Thanks, Vija.

Wendy:
And, in the previous couple of years, you took six months off for the beginning of your third youngster.

Sarah:
Yeah.

Carol:
Nice. And, that’s precisely the way it needs to be, you’ve completely realized how one can not solely handle your time, however to, such as you stated, be completely selective on the issues to which you say sure, and the issues to which you dedicate your time, which is big. J, did you wish to observe up on that somewhat bit extra? As a result of, I do know that so many group members really want some actionable recommendations on this complete state of affairs.

J:
Yeah, completely. I do know I want some recommendations on this case as a result of I acknowledge the worth of claiming no. I acknowledge the worth of, as Wendy’s husband, Jay would put it, selecting that one factor that you just actually wish to give attention to. However, I’m not good at it, as a result of saying no to me seems like I’m letting folks down. It makes me really feel like I’m disappointing folks. I don’t need folks to consider me as egocentric. I don’t need folks to consider me as not offering worth and giving. I don’t keep in mind who stated it, however I wrote down a quote that considered one of you simply stated a couple of minutes in the past, “each time you say sure, ask your self who you’re saying no to.” As a result of, while you’re saying sure to some random person who has, hey, come on my podcast, or hey, let me take you to lunch or hey, let’s do espresso, you’re saying no to any individual that’s probably rather more vital, like a enterprise companion, like a partner, like your youngsters. So, I completely love and it resonates with me that concept of, each time you say sure, ask your self who you’re saying no to.
And, that makes it quite a bit simpler. However, I might like to get some actually tactical actionable recommendations on when you could have folks coming to you asking you for favors, asking you to assist them or to return on their podcast, or do one thing that you just actually really feel like you might want to say no to. How greatest do you say no in order that’s a win-win state of affairs for either side?

Sarah:
I feel after I went by means of by means of that, and it was such a life altering second, I keep in mind I sat down with my govt assistant, and I stated, “Okay, nothing extra could be on my calendar after 5:30 each night time.” And, on the time, I used to be doing, what I name, conversion calls. So, I used to be calling sellers that didn’t say sure to my agent, and I used to be changing them over the telephone. And, I used to be bringing in loads of earnings to our enterprise as a result of I used to be in a position to convert the sellers. She checked out me and she or he stated, “Properly, who’s going to do the conversion calls? And, isn’t the enterprise going to go down?” I stated, “Sure, the enterprise most likely will go down. And, I’m okay with that.” As a result of, one of many questions I realized to ask myself is, after I say sure to this chance, who’re the folks in my world that matter quite a bit to me, that, to them, it’s going to really feel like a no to them.
After I requested myself that, and I noticed, nicely, that’s my daughter, my daughter’s the one which I’m saying no to after I say sure to these conversion calls, and is any sort of enterprise price that, proper? Now, the loopy factor about my story is the enterprise went up, which is simply insane. However, I feel that’s what can occur is, we have to step out generally and be sure that the folks that matter most to us… I like the in The ONE Factor guide the place it talks about our household’s the glass ball. Which means, all the opposite balls in our life, they bounce again, however our household is a glass ball, which implies at instances you possibly can drop in and it’ll break. And, that’s not a ball we wish to drop, proper.
I feel, so many people, at instances, put our enterprise above our household, which is that cup ball. And, for me, I did that for years. And, fortunately, due to the superb tribe of females round me, they stated, “Sarah, we see it and you might want to cease. It’s worthwhile to look since you’re saying no to your daughter, and you might want to say sure to your daughter.” So, at instances, it takes braveness to say no, as a result of meaning you’re okay with some issues lacking out on some alternatives. However the actuality is, that you just then can create alternatives for different folks. And, that’s what I’ve gotten good at and impressed by, let me create a chance for another person, as a result of I’m going to say no to that.

Carol:
I like that.

J:
I like that, Sarah.

Seychelle:
And, what’s so lovely that you just’re listening to in that, proper, is, each readability round what’s vital to you. And, additionally you don’t hear that there was an ego concerned on this. Sarah was prepared to be weak and to hearken to the folks round her and to have folks in your life which are trustworthy sufficient with you to let you know what they’re seeing and what they’re observing that will help you get your priorities again in line. And, I feel that took an enormous quantity of bravery on Sarah’s half as a result of she might have simply dismissed us a few years in the past. And, she selected to not. As a substitute, she selected to say these persons are saying this to me as a result of they care about me they usually care about my future.
And, so one factor that I do know for me, personally, is, after I get drained, I truly don’t say no extra, I say sure extra. As a result of, I’m a pleaser. I wish to assist folks. It’s most likely my greatest and worst trait and that I’m a connector. My superpower is, I wish to see folks succeed, and I wish to assist them. And, so when my vitality will get actually low, I truly say sure. So, I’ve needed to put a bodily barrier between myself and my calendar. And, that’s a human. And, earlier than I add one thing on the calendar, I’ve a human that bodily is, Seychelle, don’t. Is that basically vital? Is that one thing you might want to do? As a result of, I take pleasure in folks. That’s one thing that I like.
So, having, whether or not it’s a framework for questions, you might want to ask round your priorities, whether or not it’s a bodily physique guard in entrance of your calendar, no matter it must be to assist be sure that your priorities are in line, I feel, is a extremely highly effective factor to have the ability to do. And, then giving your self the permission to know, like Sarah stated, proper, generally it means you would possibly hand over some income otherwise you would possibly lose some offers otherwise you could be giving up one thing, however what are you saying sure to? And, is that a lot extra vital, as a result of that point, particularly with children, and particularly with spouses, proper, you don’t get that again.

Carol:
Completely. I couldn’t agree extra. So, I speak quite a bit, about while you actually make that mindset shift, that affluence isn’t nearly financial wealth. It’s actually about time affluence, proper. It’s about having the time to do the issues that you just wish to do, whether or not that’s hanging out together with your children extra and ensuring you possibly can educate them how one can bake chocolate chip cookies, whether or not that’s committing to have espresso, even nearly, with a pal as soon as every week, whether or not it’s actually having a date night time together with your partner or vital different, when you begin prioritizing in order that the time is rather more vital than the cash, then, amazingly, the cash follows. It’s this improbable idea, as soon as you set every little thing inside that framework.
However, actually, to have the ability to try this, proper, it’s a must to work out what that mission is, what that one factor is, that’s actually vital to you. And, every of you has completed a improbable job of defining who you’re, of defining what your mission is. So, I do know, loads of our group members, we battle determining what that factor is, what our mission is, the course we wish to go into. And, frankly, it’s scary to decide to only one factor, proper, and actually main your self down that path to pave the best way for saying no to these different issues and staying targeted on that one factor.

Wendy:
Carol, I simply wish to leap in there. And, I might simply say, for these of you which are feeling scared about committing to a mission, it’s okay up to now your mission. I give everybody permission up to now their mission. As a result of, for anyone on the market who’s completed any type of courting, generally the very best dates are the dates the place you permit that date and also you understand, oh, that’s what I don’t need my marriage, proper?

Carol:
Wendy, speak with us extra about that? Discuss with us extra about this complete idea of courting your mission? Has this been one thing you’ve skilled, or that a few of your associates have skilled, and it led them in the precise course, in the end?

Wendy:
Properly, I’m concerned with a corporation known as Keller Williams Children Can. It’s considered one of Gary Keller’s 501(c)(3)’s. I’m the chairman of the board. I’ve been doing that for fairly a couple of years now. And, we educate a category known as Quantum Leap, which helps younger adults, between the ages of 18 and 28, work out their mission, after which additionally work out methods to fund their mission by means of passive earnings. So, it principally aligns with each ardour that I’ve. And, one of many workouts that we undergo is, a work out your mission train. I’m not going to undergo it right here, we truly speak about it on our podcast, if anybody desires to hear.
Life is a journey, proper, so taking the time, even when your mission is primary, as I wish to assist folks by means of x, that’s okay. Put that up in your imaginative and prescient board, or put that up in your wall, put it in your rest room mirror, and take a look at it daily. As you take a look at it daily, you’ll turn into more and more clear concerning the issues that matter most and why you’re right here on the planet. And, it’s going to vary, proper? It’s not one thing that it’s, while you’re 18, you give you it, and you then dwell out that mission in each side of your life till you die at 98. That doesn’t even make sense.

Vija:
Yeah. And, can I simply add to that, I coach leaders, I coach brokers, I mentor, I’ve loads of places of work that I lead, it is a large subject, and other people put a lot stress on themselves, Carol, for his or her large why. They go see a Simon Sinek speak and their burdened by months, “I’ve received to determine my purpose that I’m on this earth.” They get actually deep about it. And, you already know what it truly is? Typically, all it’s, is that one factor that drives you to get by means of the arduous stuff that week.
I keep in mind, I had an agent that was on my group that I coached and she or he was, ” Vija, can I simply be trustworthy, you already know what my large why is?” She was, “My sister is getting married on the finish of the yr. Truthfully, all I care about”… she was Indian. And, Indian weddings are five-day affairs and you’ve got outfits daily, proper? And, she goes, “I actually wish to purchase an outfit daily. I wish to be the very best dressed there. That’s actually what’s driving me truthfully, this yr.” I used to be, “All proper, is that going to get you thru the arduous stuff?” She stated, “Yeah.” I’m like, “Dude, that’s your why. That’s what we’re going to make use of. That’s what we’re going to educate to. That’s what we’re going to connect to.” I don’t imply to make it sound like shopping for a bunch of garments is your mission assertion, however I do assume that individuals generally overthink this idea. It’s like, what’s going to encourage you to do the each day grind, to do the stuff you don’t wish to do. As a result of, all of our jobs, you guys, it’s known as work for a purpose. That’s a Jay Papason quote. It’s known as work for a purpose. We’re not going to like 60 to 80% of it, it’s simply a part of the deal. It’s that 20 to 40% that we’re there for.

Carol:
Like it.

J:
I completely love that. Okay, so I wish to dig in somewhat bit extra, as a result of I perceive and I simply wish to spotlight once more, that every of you ladies haven’t simply began companies… loads of us begin companies and loads of us do okay. We make sufficient cash to help our households and to have a while freedom. However, you’ve all taken it to the subsequent stage. You discovered how one can take these efforts, these companies, your lives, and make them large companies and massive lives and massive efforts. And, we talked somewhat bit about how to try this. Prioritization, saying no, actually realizing what your mission is. However, for these of us that could be, let’s name it, caught. We’ve taken our enterprise, we’ve grown it somewhat bit, and now we’ve hit a plateau, the place we really feel like we’ve discovered our mission in life and we’ve completed somewhat bit with it, however we haven’t been in a position to take it large. Do you could have any recommendation for us and for our group, on actually how one can take issues to the subsequent stage, how one can flip an bizarre enterprise into a giant enterprise and bizarre life into a giant life? What’s some recommendation you could have for us on how to try this?

Sarah:
I feel that the largest factor, J, and that is Sarah, is that you just’ve received to study the ability of hiring. You’ve received to study the ability of hiring the precise folks, hiring the precise method. We use the time period leverage in our group, which implies having somebody are available to do issues for you that then permit so that you can have your time freed as much as give attention to what’s most vital. And, one of many issues that we like to speak about quite a bit is, all of us are feminine empire builders. And, what meaning is that we’ve got, clearly, quite a bit on us with our enterprise, we even have quite a bit on us at our houses, proper? Females nonetheless paved the way within the house empire, proper. And, due to that, one of many first issues that we like to speak about quite a bit is, studying leverage at house.
All of our listeners proper now, when you’ve got quite a bit in your plate at house, we wish to provide you with permission in the present day to you already know, get that cleaner, get somebody that will help you with cooking dinner. Discover assist in your corporation, in your house life, as a result of that’s going that will help you with your corporation, proper. We prefer to say, your children don’t care who cooked the meal, however they do care that you just eat it with them, proper. So, you don’t must do all of the issues at house. You don’t must be the one doing all of the issues, however studying leverage. We wish to give each listener permission to study leverage in hiring first at house, as a result of that can free you as much as actually give attention to your corporation as nicely.

Wendy:
I might simply add, it’s not simple. I come from a small city in Northern Minnesota, the place now my nice grandmother her personal stroll till she was about 98 years previous. So, the considered hiring a housekeeper or getting somebody to mow your garden, or particularly getting assist at work, is one thing that was so overseas to me. It was extraordinarily arduous. And, so if you happen to’re listening on the market, and also you battle with that, I completely relate to that and so does everyone right here on this podcast. But, if you wish to transfer ahead with your corporation, you completely can’t do all of it, you’ve received to get assist.
So, what I inform folks is, particularly while you’re beginning out, put a chunk of paper in your desk, tape it to your desk, take a sharpie, and write, my to not do checklist. Each time you’re at house or at work, and also you’re doing one thing that seems like a waste of your time… or, truthfully, you already know you’re not good at it, you set it off one time, you set it off two instances, you set it off thrice, write that down in your checklist, and you then’ve received your job description to your first assistant. And, you rent somebody who wakes up daily and likes to do these issues that you just hate to do. As a result of, I feel, generally as entrepreneurs, we will’t think about anybody desirous to enter names in a database or create checklists, or, all these issues that we as entrepreneurs we’re simply horrible at and we hate to do. However, there are many individuals who get up daily they usually’re, yeah, I get to replace a database in the present day.
So, it’s like Sarah stated, you’re giving that chance to another person and you then proceed to run in the direction of what you’re good at. And, you try this at house, you do it at work, and your job description will get smaller and smaller and smaller, and also you fireplace your self from each job that you just’re not good at and also you rent somebody who’s higher at that job. And, then, swiftly, you search for, you’re like, wow, I’ve received an empire right here.

Carol:
Love that. Alexa, create my to not do checklist. Alexa, add, take the automobile in for an oil change, to my, to not do checklist. Proper? Didn’t the final 12 months simply deliver this complete idea entrance and middle, proper? It’s like, I feel, for thus a few years, you simply do what you do. You simply preserve going and you retain going. You’re like, I can do it. I can do it. I can do it. It’s simpler to do it myself than to have to search out somebody to do it, and so forth. However then, COVID. I don’t assume we have to belabor that time, however I feel it’s simply added so many extra sides of all these items that you just’re already doing and switch them as much as the billionth diploma, proper? It was loopy.
So, Vija or Sey, do both of you could have any recommendations on how we bodily go about… as soon as we’ve got this Alexa created checklist of 72 trillion issues which are on our to not do lists, how we go about discovering that individual or these folks that we’re going to make use of that leverage, in order that we will give attention to our different issues that we’re engaged on.

Vija:
Yeah, I’d love to leap in, Sey, if that’s okay. As a result of, I like J’s query. I feel so many instances entrepreneurs hit ceilings, J, and Carol, they usually hit the ceiling, they’re, I wish to go greater. I’ve stalemated you already know, regardless of the time period is, proper? I feel, the best way to consider it, and that is what Ben Kinney taught me, who’s my chief, and mentor, he stated ” Vija, don’t take into consideration how one can make one million, take into consideration how one can make 10 folks, their million, and also you get 10% of it. And, that’s the way you’re going to make your million.”
So, in different phrases, you’re specializing in different folks hitting their targets, and also you win collectively, proper? That’s success by means of others. So, that’s, I feel, the foundational key to this idea of leverage. To Wendy’s level, how can I actually make somebody win? Somebody’s going to get up daily and love to do that stuff I hate they usually’re going to hit their targets by means of me. And, and truly, if I’m gifted, and pushed sufficient, and I’m the individual that could make it occur, am I truly egocentric for not making my world greater? Am I truly not giving somebody a chance to have that function and to make their life greater, as a result of I wish to play small? I wish to play it small. I don’t wish to scale up, proper?
As a result of, you consider, how will you bless folks probably the most, on this realm, Greater Pockets Enterprise? Properly, you may give them superb careers and wealth constructing, and mentorship and earnings, proper. So, I simply wished to say from a foundational factor, Seychelle can go into the techniques of it, however that mindset, that’s what you do, J. The minute you hit that ceiling, the minute you hit that stalemate, you might want to assume, how can I make 10 folks, millionaires, and win with them, after which I’m going to hit my targets, they usually’re going to hit their targets.

Carol:
Like it.

Seychelle:
I feel that’s improbable, Vija. I feel one thing that every one 4 of us have in widespread, is that constructing our companies and constructing large companies just isn’t about us, it’s truly, we’ve grown it greater, as a result of our want to assist extra folks has pressured us to rent extra folks to then fulfill our mission, whether or not it’s serving to our shoppers, whether or not it’s serving to our group members. So, assume that’s one thing that introduced the 4 of us collectively, was that servant coronary heart of desirous to see folks win, and that usually contains leverage at house, that features leverage at work.
I feel, the opposite factor that I might say, too, is, this final yr has actually taught me some very humbling classes of seasonality. And, to grasp that we’re going to be in instances, some instances, after we’re feeling like we’re nailing it in a sure space of our life, after which COVID hits, or the market crashes, or one thing occurs and the pendulum swings to the acute on the opposite facet. And, I feel perspective is actually vital to grasp that, simply while you assume you’re nailing it, generally the world can change. In my case, I’ve a dad with actually superior Parkinson’s. And, so I had leverage down, we had date nights each week, our group was rocking. And, then it was like, all of the sudden, we had an enormous turnover in our group in January, after which COVID hit after which all of my private leverage that I had, needed to go away. And, it was like this large seasonality pendulum like, whoa, man, it was, inside a month, complete slap within the face.
I feel it was a extremely good reminder that we’ve got to get again to fundamentals, we’ve got to take a step again, we’ve got to grasp perspective. And, we’ve got to then say no to much more issues, construct our to not do checklist and begin the leverage sport over. I wish to encourage you guys, if possibly a few of you could have gone by means of this and, possibly the final yr has modified for you that you just would possibly want to show it again round. And, that’s okay.

Carol:
Tremendous, completely find it irresistible. So, who has one thing for me, that’s actually tactical, round gaining leverage, that we will begin doing proper now? An motion merchandise we will put into place in the present day to make this occur in our lives.

Sarah:
Yeah, Carol, I feel that the massive factor right here is, loads of us are speaking about the place we’re at proper now with loads of completely different leverage or loads of completely different folks. However, it didn’t simply occur. We didn’t simply get up someday and we had all these folks, proper, which are coming alongside us and we’re impacting their life they usually’re impacting our life. What actually occurs is it begins with one key rent, proper? It begins with that first key rent, and while you rent expertise, they are going to then deliver additionally different expertise. And, then what finally ends up occurring is, you could have this snowball impact, proper? So, that one first key rent is so vital.
So, ensuring that you just’re hiring that person who’s specializing in that to not do checklist, after which, swiftly, it’s going to snowball to the subsequent individual, after which the subsequent individual, then the subsequent individual. And, earlier than you already know it, you do get up someday, and also you’re, wow, I’ve impacted their life, they’ve impacted mine for the higher. And, we’re making an affect on our world all collectively. However, all of it begins with making that first key rent after which snowballing from there.

J:
Yeah. The factor I feel lots of people don’t understand is, it’s terrifying to rent that first individual. You’re pondering, okay, I’ve to determine the entire tax factor, I’ve to determine the entire legal responsibility factor, I’ve to determine all of the paperwork to maintain issues authorized. However, your first rent, even your second or your tenth, your fiftieth rent, doesn’t should be a full-time worker. It might be any individual that’s coming in part-time, it might be a digital assistant, it might be extra of a companion or any individual that’s coming in and getting possession within the enterprise, if what they’re doing is worthy of fairness.
However, it doesn’t must be a full-time individual that you just’re now chargeable for their monetary life. And, so you can begin slowly, and also you get that first 10 hours every week, or 20 hours every week, otherwise you rent any individual on Fiverr or Upwork. Or, you rent a digital assistant out of any variety of locations. And, then while you get snug with that, you ramp it up. Okay, now, I’m going to do a digital assistant 40 hours every week, and now I’m going to do a 20-hour individual. So, there’s a technique to tiptoe into it, and begin small and develop from that, proper.

Wendy:
Yeah, I like that, J. I simply would add that after I employed my first assistant, I put sufficient cash within the financial institution to pay that individual for 3 months. As a result of, I knew that if I employed the precise individual, we have been doing the precise issues, they need to be paying for themselves after about 90 days. So, don’t consider it as a $40,000 funding in an assistant who’s going to be working full-time with you for a yr, it may be, I come up with the money for within the financial institution to pay this individual. And, that simply allowed me to sleep at night time since you don’t wish to rent somebody after which not be capable to pay them.

Sarah:
I used to be going to say very one thing very comparable, Wendy. Nice minds there. We provide you with permission that it may possibly begin at house. Don’t overlook what we stated at first, that first rent could be somebody at house that can free you as much as do the enterprise issues, proper. So, you could have our full permission in specializing in your private home life as nicely.

J:
I completely love this. Just a few completely superb suggestions for how one can develop your corporation, how one can take one thing that’s, let’s name it, common, and make it large. And, it’s all about leverage. It’s all about hiring key folks. It’s all about determining how one can affect sufficient different folks’s lives. I might love so as to add one factor as a result of I actually favored this. I really feel like that is one thing I talked about, once more, and I hate to maintain bringing this again to Wendy’s husband, Jay, however I’m a little bit of a fanboy of Jay Papasan, however, I feel, one thing we talked about on his present and that I typically inform folks is that, all these folks say I wish to make $100 an hour, I wish to make $200 an hour, I wish to make $1,000 an hour. And, they wish to know the way to try this.
The best method to try this, is give attention to the duties that generate you $100 an hour or $200 out an hour or 500 or $1,000 an hour. So many individuals, they are saying they wish to make $100 an hour… Carol and I are in the true property enterprise additionally and the investing enterprise, I hear all these folks that say, I received into investing to make $500 an hour after which they’re portray their very own home, once they might rent any individual to try this for $20 an hour. And, if you happen to’re doing a job you can rent any individual to do for $20 an hour, you’re principally buying and selling your time for $20 an hour. Any ideas there? Vija?

Vija:
Are you able to see me elevating and waving my hand?

J:
I do.

Wendy:
Name me, name me.

Vija:
We’re all leaping up and down. We find it irresistible. Oh, my gosh, J, you’re on fireplace. Okay, listed below are the dominoes. And, J, you stated it so nicely, the primary domino to grasp, is hustling, deal-making, promoting houses, bringing in earnings. Grasp the artwork of bringing an earnings, that’s your first domino. So many individuals wish to skip that step they usually wish to have all of the rewards with none of the grit and grind and hustle. So, for our Greater Pockets group, loads of that’s simply deal-making. Grasp it, do the arduous stuff, supply it. Discuss to the owners, proper. For actual property brokers, it’s go promote a bunch of houses, do the chilly calling, do the no matter.
The second domino is reserves. Have enterprise reserves. Your confidence stage to do the entire issues we’re speaking about, are going to be helped a lot when you could have cash within the financial institution. So, the dominoes are deal-making, income-producing, reserves, quantity two. Then, quantity three, study every little thing you possibly can about hiring and leverage and recruiting and protecting expertise, proper? It begins with recruiting. To me, it strikes into studying about management and studying how one can be a great chief that nobody would wish to depart. So, these are the 4 constructing blocks that, I feel, our enterprise house owners can map of their minds for the method.

Wendy:
The arduous half is, you bought to run your corporation at this identical time you’re doing that on the facet. And, the truth is, most individuals simply don’t wish to try this. They wish to proceed to do their one job. And, they don’t wish to grasp management, they don’t wish to grasp hiring as a result of it’s an entire different job, proper? Whenever you’ve received to rent that first assistant, you’re most likely drowning. And, to take again and step again and take the time to actually supply and rent a great candidate. As a result of, what most individuals do is, they’re drowning. They appear round, they level at somebody they usually say, hey, come work with me. It’s most likely a pal and it doesn’t work out. And, then they are saying, you already know what, I’m no good at hiring, I’m simply going to proceed to do what I do. And, so the sample self-perpetuates. For those who can take a step again, with a view to take two steps ahead, that’s actually what enterprise constructing success appears like.

J:
Yeah, and we needs to be fascinated about this in all points of our lives. Once more, I don’t keep in mind which considered one of you stated it, I apologize. However, there was a tremendous quote earlier of, your children don’t care who cooked the meal, however they do care that you just eat it with them. It’s a great reminder that we could be doing the identical factor in our private lives. So, we have to get the dry cleansing completed, however we don’t must do the dry cleansing. We have to prepare dinner the meals, however we don’t should be those truly doing the cooking. We have to buy groceries and herald meals, however that doesn’t must be Carol myself truly going out and doing the buying.
So, yeah, possibly you’re not doing that on day one. Perhaps you’re constructing, that’s the second domino, or the third domino, as Vija stated, however, in some unspecified time in the future, begin fascinated about how we could be outsourcing all elements of our lives, to give attention to the vital stuff, not simply the stuff in our enterprise lives.

Sarah:
Yeah, I feel, J, that’s so good. I do know that we wish to transfer on right here, however what I feel the massive distinction right here is, loads of us are pure deal-makers, what Vija stated, and what’s good about that’s, we will make issues occur and we see the fruits of our labor shortly, proper? After I was making these conversion calls, I felt like driving house, I did my job. I did what I used to be alleged to do, proper? However, then it’s like, nicely, now, I’ve received to go elevate children. And, that takes 18 years to see the fruits of your labor. Or, now, it’s like, I’ve received to develop leaders. It’s like, oh, my goodness, that takes years and years to develop my management to develop them. Loads of instances when folks run in the direction of what provides them the popularity quick, or the satisfaction quick, however the true pleasure comes of the issues that take a very long time, that we put our effort and time in and turning into masters of.
And, that’s while you see true satisfaction, not in simply that one deal-making, however if you happen to can study to grasp hiring, if you happen to can study to grasp making an enduring affect on somebody’s life, sure, that takes a very long time. However, the enjoyment from that, that actually can change your life. Proper, that pleasure from that versus the one deal. So, I feel, generally you bought to lean into the center and the longer issues, as a result of that’s the place true lasting satisfaction comes from.

Wendy:
Yeah, it’s delayed gratification. Properly, it’s the identical method.

Sarah:
Sure.

Carol:
It truly is. Such as you stated, it’s the consistency. It’s having the ability to be nimble, it’s having the ability to rent, it’s mastering all of those completely different abilities. Wrapped into that, round it and all through it, I might suspect to take our enterprise, to take our private life, to take every little thing and simply actually amplify it, make it large. It’s not simply mastering all of those mushy abilities. You additionally tactically must know what your numbers are, out and in, in all areas of your life, proper?
J and I speak quite a bit about, we run our house, in loads of methods, like a enterprise, as a result of it’s essential to preserve every little thing flowing. You may have these mushy abilities, and, after all, you care for your infants and also you care for one another with these mushy abilities. However, in all areas of our world, realizing your numbers, realizing your processes, realizing your programs, inside and outside, is simply essential. So, can any of you speak to that, and the way that works in what you’re constructing?

Vija:
Yeah, I feel the important thing phrase right here, Carol, is predictability. After I take a look at my very own companies, and I coach loads of entrepreneurs, they’re not feeling safe in that subsequent fee or that subsequent paycheck. And, that every one comes from realizing your numbers. All of that predictability comes from realizing what your main indicators are and what your numbers are to get you to your outcomes. So, your lead era levers. By the best way, that may change. Seychelle so correctly talked about seasonality in life, in enterprise, earlier. Each market is somewhat completely different. So, if you already know you’re main indicators and also you’re continually monitoring them, you possibly can flip that spigot up and down relying in the marketplace that you just’re in.
So, understanding financials, understanding return on funding, the idea of getting to do an ROI. Sarah, I’d love you to inform your story truly, on having to do an ROI on each funds merchandise. I’m fascinated by that. I’m going to begin teaching folks, on copying your coach. Educating the idea of pondering when it comes to ROI on every little thing.

Sarah:
Yeah, V and I have been having a dialog on Saturday. I’ve a number of coaches, that’s how large of a large number I’m. However, considered one of my coaches, yearly, has me undergo my P&L, and, each line, I’ve to place what the return is. Vija was, “What do you imply? Simply your lead gen? Or, simply your advertising and marketing, proper?” I used to be, “No, each line.” And, she’s, “However, how do you try this with house?” Or, “how do you try this with…” I stated, “Precisely.” Then, it’s a must to wrap your head around-

Vija:
I used to be, like, “Lease? How do you ROI on hire? What?” What if she purchased the constructing?

Sarah:
No, nevertheless it makes you take a look at issues and say, okay, nicely, how can I flip hire right into a return? Proper? How can I flip that right into a return proper? For us, in the true property enterprise, it’s like your dealer price, proper? All of us pay a dealer price. Loads of instances, we don’t maintain that price accountable. Properly, now, I do maintain it accountable. I take a look at it and I say, okay, what’s the return on that? For us, loads of it’s agent to agent referrals, proper, come from that platform, which is a giant return for many people. So, however are you holding every quantity accountable to getting you a return, not simply the lead gen numbers. I feel that, that was a giant second with V and I on Saturday, which was enjoyable.

Vija:
So, my thoughts was blown. I at all times considered ROI as lead era and enterprise growth. It didn’t even happen to me to go line by means of line. That’s an enormous idea to me.

J:
You already know what the loopy factor is, this all performs again into the dialogue we’ve been having all through this dialogue, which is, our lives are basically a P&L. We’ve income. Our income are the great issues that occur, the love we get from our household, and, clearly, the cash, is a part of the income. However, all the great issues that come into our lives is that income in our lives. And, then we’ve got the bills. We’ve the issues we’ve got to do. We might not like doing them, however they value us. They value us our time. They value us our vitality. They value us, probably, {our relationships}.
And, what Sarah simply stated, actually could be utilized to our lives as nicely. Go take a look at all these bills in your life. Go take a look at all these issues that you just’re expending time and vitality and social capital doing. And, then ask your self, what’s the return I’m getting? And, if the return isn’t justified, or if the expense isn’t justified by the return you’re getting, nicely, that’s an expense you need to be kicking out of your life. So, it’s humorous, it actually all comes full circle.

Seychelle:
That’s good. Yeah. Yeah, that’s actually good.

Wendy:
I learn a great guide this yr. I feel everyone’s learn it. However, it’s known as The Psychology of Cash by Morgan Housel. Incredible guide. Actually made me take into consideration funds completely different. And, it actually talks about precisely what you’re saying, J, is, after we take into consideration a few of these private issues, we take into consideration finance, we give it some thought as being, actually, numbers-driven, however we’ve got to equate it someway to our happiness stage, proper. I beloved the guide for that. And, on the identical time, we’ve got to know our numbers in our private life. I take into consideration, my husband and I’ve dedicated to a weekly date night time for most likely 13, 14 years. We’ve gone on over 400, dates, 500 dates, in our lifetime, proper. And, as enterprise house owners, loads of instances, we all know our numbers in our enterprise, however we don’t know our numbers in our private life.
So, simply to circle again round to the priorities and hyperlink it to that, what are the issues that you just’re doing each day that’s going to steer you to the factor that you just wish to have occur in your households? Are you having dinner collectively as a household? Are you having breakfast collectively as a household? Are you happening a date night time? Have you ever time blocked your holidays, proper? These are all numbers that flip into what you’re speaking about, J, which is, these have that actual return versus shopping for a ship or… Nothing fallacious with a ship, however that may result in a distinct outcome.

Carol:
Love that. As we’re getting close to the top of the present, I might like to study somewhat bit extra about… you talked about so many nice issues. Wendy simply talked a couple of improbable guide. I’d like to get one final… earlier than we speak about your upcoming occasions and earlier than we speak about the place folks can hearken to your superior present. I’d like to get one superb tip from every of you. So, only one factor from every of you. What’s one factor, as entrepreneurs, that we will do in our life beginning in the present day that will probably be life altering for us, okay? We are able to go round no matter order. And, let’s wrap with that, after which study extra about how we will put this all into motion at your occasion you could have arising later this yr.

Seychelle:
It is a Seychelle right here. I feel, the largest factor for me is, is that you just’re by no means going to have arrived by the point you assume you’re going to be there, proper? The percentages are your targets have modified, and one thing else is now a precedence for you. So, wherever you’re in your life, if there’s one thing large that’s in your coronary heart, or that you just wish to change or that you just wish to go after, I might encourage you to begin now. And, don’t look forward to it to be the precise time, the precise season, the right situation, as a result of the chances are, by the point that occurs, you’re going to have completely different priorities in any case. So, if you happen to’re hoping to construct wealth, otherwise you’re hoping to search out leverage, otherwise you’re hoping to create your imaginative and prescient, and fulfill it, now’s the time to try this. And, to actually put that point in your calendar and defend it and go after your goals and know that you’ve got permission to do it. We provide you with permission in the present day, go for it.

J:
I like that.

Sarah:
I like that, Sey. I feel, the one factor I might encourage all of our listeners to do is, one thing that, truthfully, after I first heard, to be very trustworthy, I rolled my eyes. Not visibly, however in my head. As a result of, I used to be, I’m an achiever, why are we doing this? However, it was a query that Wendy requested, and also you’re seeing a commonality with my tales proper now, it’s simply the affect that she’s had on my life. And, it was, what brings you pleasure? Sey talked about it earlier, and we rushed over it, however, truthfully, if there’s one factor that I might say to everyone seems to be, take time, flip every little thing off, and make an inventory of what brings you pleasure, after which run in the direction of that, proper? Create your life, create your job, create your empire, round what brings you pleasure.
Whenever you try this, you’re passionate, you’re having enjoyable, you’re loving it, you’re loving your world, you’re loving your life, you’re loving your job, folks then turn into interested in that, proper, as a result of they need that for themselves. And, then, it finally ends up, you’re impacting different folks. And, then a giant a part of what was on my pleasure checklist was, after all, my household, proper? These particular instances with my household or touring. Regardless of the issues that deliver you pleasure, take a second, shut every little thing off. I feel loads of us are identical to achievers, let’s get this completed and let’s go do that and let’s get that. We take a look at our checklist and, take a look at all I achieved in the present day. Proper? And, in the meantime we’re depressing. Proper? We’re not doing what brings us pleasure.
So, take time, write down what brings you pleasure, create your life and your world round that. And, you’ll simply be happier. You’ll have that large enterprise, you even have that large life due to it as nicely. So, run in the direction of pleasure.

However, I do assume, for me, it’s come up somewhat bit in the present day. And, we speak about my wealth constructing journey. I feel we’re going to listen to that episode quickly. However, I’m fairly open with my wealth constructing journey. I’ve been very undisciplined with cash, I’ve been a spender. I’ve made some huge cash and I’ve spent some huge cash. And, I’m simply now, I began this funding property and actually constructing belongings at age 50. So, it’s not too late, by the best way, women and gents, it’s not too late. You are able to do quite a bit in a decade. It’s superb how a lot you are able to do to your internet price in a decade.
So, right here’s my large factor that, I assume, I need everybody to know, delayed gratification. Get used to delayed gratification in well being and cash. Sarah stated it very well, in elevating your children. Embrace delayed gratification. The best way to try this is to give attention to the method and never the outcomes. Actually just be sure you are all-in on the each day actions, on the weekly actions and also you’re not getting forward in steps and the outcomes will come. The outcomes will come. For those who’re actually targeted on the precise actions which were derived from a way of very clear priorities, proper, that you just’ve actually thought by means of and that you just actually assume are the precise actions, that’s what you do. You get snug with delayed gratification and also you give attention to the method, and also you get up someday and also you go, wow, large outcomes.

Properly, I’ll simply echo what all these different tremendous clever leaders have stated, and that’s that life is a selection. You completely get to decide on what your life appears like. And, the one factor that all of us have in widespread on this planet is, all of us have a finite period of time and the way we spend our day, the habits that we create, is actually how our life appears on the finish of our life. Proper. So, the alternatives we make, the habits we put into place, daily. So, get good at selecting, proper? Select the habits which are going to serve you. As soon as you determine the life that you really want, work out these habits that you might want to put into place with a view to search for sometime and have all of the belongings you need.

And, it’s not at all times snug to be sitting on a play date and switch to the mother subsequent to you and say, oh, what’s your internet price? Have you ever checked out your P&L recently? It’s type of, awkward. So, about 5 years in the past, I made a decision that I wanted to community to actually help that feeling of loneliness that you just get as a frontrunner. So, we created our Amplify tribe. And, that’s grown. We’ve a tribe of 11. However, a pair years in the past, we created a tremendous occasion, it truthfully was the very best day of most likely the previous two years for me. Unbelievable vitality. And, we had a pair 100 ladies collectively for a three-day occasion. We name it Amplify Occasion. You may go to amplifyevent.com.

For those who’re an worker, if you happen to’re an entrepreneur, it’s designed so that you can not know one individual. I say that as a result of I do know that it may be intimidating. You hear this on a podcast and also you’re like, what, I’m not simply going to point out up. You simply present up. We truly would separate you if you happen to knew somebody. It’s actually designed for everyone to return in and get a brand new tribe of girls. 85% signed up proper there on the spot. It was that particular. We couldn’t do it final yr due to COVID. So, this September, I’m so excited. I can’t even let you know.

I might say, among the tribes that have been shaped on the occasion have been crucial in supporting which leaders, which arguably was considered one of my hardest management years final yr throughout COVID. And, these tribes have been essential for help.
