How to Think Like a Start-Up

May 3, 2018

Being a Realtor means balancing your budget, marketing, maintaining relationships, building clientele, attending networking events, often working on weekends and more. Sounds a little overwhelming, right?

Startups often are in the same position; new, scared, yet hardworking.  Some of the most innovative breakthroughs come from startups with almost no money, experience, or resources.

In contrast, organizational giants with more cash than small countries are hesitant to try new things to stay ahead of the curve. Here’s how to think like a startup as a Realtor:

Curiosity

People at startups are inherently curious. They have a deep craving to gain new insight, and discover a better way. As a Realtor, are you curious? Are you constantly thinking of new ways to network, make a social media marketing plan, or meet your goals?

Community

To survive, startups have to have the support of their community. They build a positive community image, network, and work towards the betterment of their surroundings.  

Dream Big

Entrepreneurs believe in what could be, rather than focusing on what is.  They imagine and explore fresh possibilities rather than protecting the past. They dream big yet set realistic goals.

Be Fearless  

We all have fears but entrepreneurs focus on what could go right instead of what could go wrong.

Efficiency

Today, in the rapidly changing world of business and technology there has been one common theme—efficiency. People want what they want when they want it. Startups use speed to their advantage and are overflowing with urgency.

Social Media

Dont shy away from social media- Last year, 80 percent of Instagrammers followed a business, and 500,000,000+ Instagram accounts worldwide are active every day.

The entrepreneurial mindset will help you win in today’s competitive environment.  You have a ridiculous amount of competition and your fate as a real estate agent hinges on your ability to adapt, grow, and outperform others who are working to get the same business you are.
