WelcomeGreetings, and welcome to Bradley K. Warren and Associates, Inc.  My name is Brad Warren, and I am a real estate business coach and seminar leader.  Since 1978, I have taught seminars in 18 foreign countries, in 27 of the United States, in front of over 40,000 people, and have done one-on-one coaching with hundreds of professionals and business owners.  Since 2003, I have been focusing my practice on the real estate profession, and have launched this website with the goal of bringing the best tips, tools, and techniques to real estate agents to help them grow their businesses with less effort and struggle and more results.

To start you off, I am offering a FREE 20-page e-book on Time Management (it’s actually a chapter I wrote from a larger book entitled Blueprint for Success: 12 Powerhouse Professionals, which includes chapters from Ken Blanchard and Stephen Covey as well).  My chapter focuses on what I believe is the #1 impediment to running a successful real estate practice, and that is the effective and efficient use of time.  I talk about goals, how to keep a time log to track where your precious time really goes, how to prioritize, how to effectively use To-Do lists and planners, how to plan a week at a time, dealing with drop-in visitors and telephone interruptions, the 7 steps to masterful delegation, 10 tips for overcoming procrastination, ideas for running more effective meetings, and a few suggestions for improving your communication skills.  I believe that this chapter alone, if you read it thoroughly and implement the ideas I’ve presented, will make a huge difference in how you schedule and plan your weekly activities, and will result in more productive use of your time and greater accomplishment of your goals.  A wonderful side benefit is a dramatic decrease in stress!  So go now to the top right hand side of this page, type in your name and email address, click the ‘Subscribe’ button, and the chapter will be on its way to you immediately

Goals plus a plan equals results

“Those who do not have goals are doomed forever to work for those who do.” -Brian Tracy

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” -Alexander Graham Bell

“Plans are useless, but planning is essential.” -Dwight D. Eisenhower

Need I go on? I think you will agree with me when I say that without a clear set of goals, without direction towards an end result, and without the planning and preparation it takes to reach those goals, you don’t stand much chance of achieving them. Yes, I know, you also need action, you need to implement the plan, or all is for naught. But that’s a topic for another day.

Why am I writing about this today? It’s to invite you to join me on Tuesday, April 1st (and no, this is not a joke, I chose that day on purpose) from 9-10am Pacific time as I lead a FREE teleclass on my famous “5 Step Planning Process for Goal Accomplishment.” Why April 1st? Because it’s the beginning of the second quarter of 2014, and a perfect time to check in with yourself to make sure you’re doing all that you can to accomplish your goals for 2014. While the bulk of the class will be focused on a very simple, easy to implement 5 step process that you can do every week to increase your productivity and results (and hopefully make a lot more money if that’s of interest to you) I’ll also be covering goals and their importance to this entire process. So email brad@bradwarren.com with “Free teleclass” in the subject line and I’ll email you back the call in number and PIN. Plus those of you who take action and attend the class will receive a free gift at the end…but you must stay for the entire hour! I will also be recording this class if you can’t make it to the live call. OK, that’s it, stop reading and send me an email!

What’s the problem that you’re the solution to?

I just returned from a 3-day seminar in LA conducted by Joel Roberts called The Language of Impact. It was all about how to speak more powerfully about what I do in the world. So when I was working with Joel, I started out saying things like “I help people deal with the overwhelmingly large […]

The Aggregation of Marginal Gains (or better said, small changes over time lead to big differences)

The Aggregation of Marginal Gains (to read the entire article, go to http://jamesclear.com/marginal-gains) It’s so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making better decisions on a daily basis. Almost every habit that you have — good or bad — is the result of many small decisions over […]

Happy Genes

It’s well known that “making a difference” makes us happier and healthier: people who volunteer live longer. Now a new study finds that your body might know this on a molecular level. The specific type of happiness you derive from pursuing a greater purpose positively influences the genes in your immune system. “People whose happiness […]

If you always do what you’ve always done…

…you’ll always get what you always got! How true that is, especially as we enter into a new year. If you look closely, you’ll see that 80-90% of our lives are automatic, habits, things that we do without much thinking. What are you doing differently this year than you did last year? Or are you […]
