Begin with the End in Mind Five Stages of Growth in the Five Key Areas of Life w/Coach Ron Anderson

Many people in business focus all their energy on financial success, and as a result, the other parts of their lives start to suffer. How do we make sure every aspect of our lives is dialed in? How can we work on improving the weaker areas, and how do we use our strong points to help others? On this new episode, Club Wealth’s Coach Ron Anderson explains the five stages we’ll experience while building a successful real estate empire, and how to determine where to focus your time, effort and energy.

You’re going to be more efficient in all areas of your life if you’re balanced in family, business, finances, health and spirituality. -Ron Anderson  


Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Focus energy and effort on the weaker life areas
    We need to measure where we are in all 5 stages. If we’re successful in all but one, our effort should go to the one area where we are the weakest and work on improving that. As we bring the weakest parts up, the other areas where we’re already strong will get even stronger. 

  • Set goals and habits around the life areas you want to improve
    We need to identify the areas in our life that we want to work on, and then set smart goals to accomplish them. The one strategy we must master is developing habits around each of the goals we’ve set to cause us to move from one stage to the next. 

  • Don’t skip stages
    The 5 stages that show where we are in the different areas of our lives are struggle, survival, success, significance and legacy. Don’t try to jump from struggle to legacy; we have to work on getting to the next stage instead of trying to shoot up to the highest level.

START YOUR YEAR RIGHT S.M.A.R.T. Goals EVERY Real Estate Agent Must Set

In a new year, it’s important for us to really examine the goals we set to make sure they are S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time Frame). How do we set goals that are actually attainable instead of focusing on numbers that make us sound cool? How do we make sure the goals we set are in integrity for us? What resources can we use to set goals and achieve them? On this episode, the 100th episode of Club Wealth TV, coaches Misti Bruton, Leisel Taylor, and Donnie Morrow talk about lessons they’ve learned about setting goals. 


Time is the biggest motivator in your business and your life. Without a deadline, you won’t have the willpower or sense of direction. -Leisel Taylor 


Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Look back to learn how to move ahead
    Reflect backwards with honesty. Before setting goals for the year ahead, we first need to evaluate the results we got up to this point. We don’t do this negativity but for learning. This information helps us know where we’re starting from in setting goals going forward.

  • Compete with your former self, not other people
    Don’t buy into the idea of competing with others, it’s a painful path that doesn’t lead to happiness. When we set goals, it’s important for us to remember that the only person we’re competing against is ourselves. We need to be better than we were before, and not other people.

  • Artificial timelines drive willpower
    When we set up open ended goals, we take away the tension that we need to drive forward. We need to create timelines, deadlines and schedules that get us to where we want to go, even if the deadlines are artificial and self-imposed.

How an Agent with a DISC Profile of an Admin led to $1.2 Million in GCI w/Matt Hermes

When we go through a hard time in our lives and businesses, we can let those things define us, or we can choose to let them inspire us to improve. What does it take for us to keep going when it feels like the odds are against us? Why is giving such a powerful part of coming out of a bad place? How did an agent with a High S-C DISC profile build a highly successful team? On this episode, broker/owner Matt Hermes shares on why our DISC profile doesn’t define us, his inspiring perseverance, and how he came out of being $250k in debt, in a bad place mentally and in a bad economy.  

Don’t do stuff that you hate because you will hate the business you’re in. -Matt Hermes 


Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Matt’s incredible story of survival, perseverance and change 
    Matt has built himself up after going through a difficult time. Two of his kids faced health challenges during the market crash. He ended up deep in debt, battling alcoholism and on the verge of suicide. The loss of material things forced him to look inside himself and build himself back up the right way. 
  • Introversion doesn’t have to hold us back in business
    You don’t have to be a complete extrovert to effectively interact with people. All we need to do is step outside of our shells for a short amount of time, and then step back in when we aren’t in networking or speaking mode. 

  • Coaching is one of the best investments we can make in ourselves
    If we’re not getting desired results, we have to do something different. Coaching is a great place to start to change the results we’re getting. We’re limited in what we know, and we don’t know what we don’t know, so it’s better to invest in the knowledge of people who have been to where we are.
