Welcome

 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

The Big Kahuna

The Big Kahuna

I just read an article from one of my mentors, T. Harv Eker, where he talked about The Big Kahuna, or the one big thing. He was talking about work-life balance, and on the work side, he said if you want to be rich, you’ve got to focus on the one big thing that will move your business forward the most. He also suggested spending 50% of your business hours on that one big thing.

Now I’ll admit I don’t spend 50% of my business time on my one big thing (which is lead generation and lead follow up) but I do spend at least 1 hour every day, Monday to Friday, working on that one item. And it’s the 2nd thing on my To-Do list every day as well (after 30 minutes of meditating, which always comes first). 30 minutes making outgoing calls to line up complimentary coaching sessions, and at least 30 minutes following up with leads already in the pipeline. And just that one big thing has made a huge difference in my coaching business (which is averaging twice the revenue per month this year that I averaged all of last year! Woo, Hoo!).

What’s your one big thing? Writing a book, putting up an awesome website, lead generation, social media marketing? What’s that One Big Thing that if you do it, and do it consistently, will make a huge difference in your business? Let me know.

Did I do my best to…

Did I do my best to: Set clear goals? Make progress toward goal achievement? […]

“Nothing is either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Shakespeare “In dance, no movement or direction is better or worse than another. This, too, is a way to view all of life. See all the ‘good and bad’ things that happen to you simply as movements in the dance of life.” Zen wisdom […]

Love and business

Given that I’ve recently blogged about risk, and the fact that Valentine’s Day is this Saturday, I Googled “Love and Business” and found this interesting article about the combination of the two (excerpt below, full article at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/corey-blake/business-gains-are-double_b_6636928.html): “Loving and leading this way is a risk, no doubt about it. It’s a risk for your […]

Do you control your technology or does it control you?

I recently was attempting to book a training engagement with a local real estate office and the broker had this to say: “Brad, you have so many good things to say, but it gets lost with your not adopting new technologies. Has that changed?” Which started a back-and-forth conversation about technology, how did that have […]
