It’s Friday, let’s sweep! |a third mind


On creating a “third mind”…

Welcome to Friday, let’s take our sweep! This week I spent an incredible two days in Fort Collins, CO with 12 master coaches within our field. Over the next few weeks I’ll be weaving this content + conversations + coaching into Fridays with Laura.

“No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

…to that end, my goal in blog content over the next few weeks will be to take the content I will be sharing with you, dive deeper and create a “third mind” – a mastermind in collaboration – via these blog posts. It will take your participation to be successful – hope you’ll come along! All in, with you.


This week, I have two questions for you. Please consider posting a comment and engage in this conversation with me – creating a mastermind! [Comment section located in the upper lefthand corner of this blog post]

Question #1 | Finish this sentence…

*You see a successful broker and you think to yourself, what are they doing to be successful? It’s probably because…

This week, I answered this question like this…“because they are focused.”

How would you answer this question? Share it, leave a comment, let’s talk about it!

Question #2 | What does your whiteboard look like?

*Sharing with you what a successful whiteboard looks like. My challenge to you > keep these “vital signs” and “pipeline” updated weekly. This set up will show you exactly where you are with respect to your goals + keep you on pace to grow your skills.

**Imagine what is possible if you are able to keep up this weekly habit?

***oh, you don’t have a whiteboard? Ah great, opportunity in starting out on the right track from the beginning…


****And if you can not read my chicken scratch for handwriting, these are the “buckets” to fill up each week…

Vital Signs [goal in sides / side closed to date + GCI goal / goal achieved to date]

Pending w/ Close Dates

Listings w/ Expiration Dates

Referrals [both incoming + outgoing]

Skill to learn “this week.” [example / real estate review]

“Hot list” [include name and whether they are a buyer/seller or both]

“Warm list” [include a name and whether they are a buyer/seller of both]

There you have it. A couple digestible bites from a solid two days with 12 of the best master coaches within our industry. More to come, each Friday! Please fill up the “comment” box with your answer to: “It’s probably because…”

…and big hello to Friday night, Easter weekend, Earth Day upcoming and the official start to spring break with my family – welcome, all of it!


All in, for you.

    Question #1: It’s probably because they are engaged and exudes confidence.

    Question #2: My white board is being RE-vamped and RE- engaged on Monday. I took M. Fannings New Broker Business Planning class Friday.
