Today I presented to a bunch of folks here in Victoria, B.C. and what a fantastic location - right on the water with the fresh sea air to get us fired up and ready for work. We'll be up here in British Columbia for the next few days visiting Vancouver, Surrey and Kelowna and if you haven't been, this is a part of the world well worth a visit. Beautiful scenery, friendly people, great wines!
Another thing Western Canada has going for it right now is optimism. Canadians are upbeat about the future...according to a recent RBC poll, 90% are confident about real estate as an investment and 85% believe they are doing a good or excellent job paying their mortgage.
Nothing new here...you've heard me say it before but more focus on the positive and less on the negative is the way to stay motivated and inspired about the job you do. The good stories are out there - you just have to look and listen. 4,183 of our Members just completed the Blitz. You won't see it on TV tonight but in just 12 weeks they generated 16 referrals each, closed over 14,000 transactions, and earned $126 million in commissions - or $30,127 per Member. We find what we're looking for!
It's a good life!
