Coronavirus Talk #9: On Mental and Physical Resilience
Coronavirus is Testing Mental Resilience The Coronavirus third wave is putting a strain on the mental resilience of sales professionals and impacting performance. From New Possibilities to Managing Mental Resilience   The last time I came to you with the coronavirus talk was back in July. Back then we were talking about new possibilities— about how going through a crucible of adversity helps you lift the chains of limitations off of yourself so that you can see that anything is possible if you make the choice to persevere.  I come to you now in January, during the third wave of the coronavirus, because I’m noticing a big problem. Salespeople are beginning to wear out. In some cases, it's depression and loneliness. In other cases, it's waiting and hoping for this to all be over and constantly having your hopes dashed.  All of this stress and anxiety combine to put you in a situation where you just don't feel very good about life. In sales, if you don't feel good about life, it's going to be really, really hard to feel good about selling.  Mental and Physical Drain The net result is that many people just feel mentally and physically drained. In sales, you need a great deal of mental resilience because you often face so much rejection. The job is hard. And now, you have to work twice as hard to accomplish your sales goals.  In this environment, you need a great deal of intellectual acuity in order to outwit your competitors. Mental acuity requires a great deal of physical stamina. Likewise, mental resilience is directly impacted by physical resilience.  If you're allowing those days when you just feel depressed to take you down with them, then it's going to be a lot harder to to to gain the physical stamina that you need.  A Challenge to Focus on You So my challenge to you on this Coronavirus Talk is to go look in the mirror: Are you taking care of yourself? Drinking too much? Eating too much or the wrong things? Getting enough exercise? Are you doing things to your body that make it harder for you to recover mentally?  If the answer is yes, resolve to make changes. Reach deep down inside of yourself and find the discipline. Before I made these changes, I didn't feel good, didn't really look good, and I wasn't performing at my very best. Flip forward a couple of months, with a real focus and discipline on taking care of my physical health, and I'm in a much better place. I've got so much more energy and feel much more equipped to handle the disappointments, stress, and anxiety that come along with this horrible pandemic.  Take Action So take action now. Start eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising. Do this and I promise you that you will not only get through this, but you'll also put yourself in a position to win on the other side.  I want to hear from you. What are you doing to keep yourself mentally and physically fit during this pandemic? Send me a text message at 1-706-397-4599 or just CLICK HERE TO TEXT.

#306: Real Estate Through the Years, Investing During Recessions, and Much More! -with Larry Lieberman
Larry Lieberman is the president and founder of the Barrington Group. For more than 40 years, The Barrington Group's company philosophy has been to provide excellent quality maintenance service, good clean, well-manicured grounds, well-prepared apartments, friendly courteous professional staff members, and a genuine real concern for the health, safety, and well-being of their residents. The Barrington Group believes in long-term ownership. They do not “build and sell” or “flip” their properties; in fact, they still own and manage most of their original portfolio. An excerpt from their website, which I think will provide some additional context to the type of company Barrington is - “We know our residents, they know us…. we strive to have the same staff at a property year after year. Our residents are not subject to “new management” with changing rules and fewer quality standards. Because we are long-term owners, we must pay attention to keeping our properties in excellent physical condition…. to prevent them from aging… we spend considerable resources on keeping our properties beautiful. Quotes: “There were companies out buying everything in sight, but we couldn’t compete because we wanted cash flow absent of the tax benefits. We weren’t players. We weren’t out building and developing and buying because we couldn’t compete with the tax credit mentality.” “The basic components that we adhered to, to turn properties around in the ’60s, was I believe in giving a good, well maintained and clean apartment for a reasonable price. And for which, I expect my rent, and I expect it on time. We adhere to that, and we’ll do our part first so that you’ll do your part second.” Highlights: 5:22- Larry tells us about his background and how he found his way into real estate 13:39- Larry shares how prior to 1987 he kept from falling into the trap of bad deals due to inflation 18:53- Larry tells us about changes in his property management style that helped him manage his business more efficiently in the 60s after acquiring 2000 assets 21:23- Larry shares the struggles he has faced in his career and how he has overcome them 27:04- Larry tells us how he makes determinations in large rehab projects as to not over renovate 30:40- Larry talks about the best-valued lifestyle commodities in communities 32:27- Larry tells us about shifts and changes he’s made due to COVID Guest Website: Learn About Investment and Partnership Opportunities with Kevin and His Team

How To Take Your Brand Business To The Next Level Amid Pandemic | Travis Huff | Replay
In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an incredible guest, Travis Huff who shares knowledge and insights on how to stay ahead in business all through this crisis, how to win financial challenge and get rich, what are the good things during this COVID-19 pandemic, and gives out some tips on how to take your social & influence marketing to the next level! Travis “2Tallin” Huff is a father, music producer, podcaster, investor, social media management/marketing expert, and CEO at Real-time Outsource, a full-service optimization & management firm specializing in all things in social media. Since June 2009, it helps optimize over 1,120+ campaigns, manage whole content, conversation, and the whole community for businesses, Ad agencies, PR firms, Digital agencies, non-profits, and associations that have delivered millions of engagements, exposure, leads, sales and viral love. Aside from that, Travis also worked in broadcast television for 15 years including ABC television. His goal in life is to help businesses increase revenue using effective traceable marketing/advertising. Right now, Travis and his team are dealing with COVID-19 and constantly on the real customer service side of things. As they’re certain that giving services is key today. Relative to this, Travis believes that everything happens when you just listen to people. Just what he did a year ago, he pays attention to his customer who wanted to build a reputation. Now, he came up with a reputation software for clients. Hence, according to him, this isn’t the time to get stuck on the corner, and wait for everything to return to normal. Rather this is the best time to start a business. The best time to lean in and get advantage of the opportunities. Moreover, people adopted the new norms of working from home during these quarantine times. People have more time connecting to families, and more time on themselves. So, grab this time to discover new things, and learning that technologies can do more than we realized. Now is the best time to engage with people, increase the engagement, likability, sales, and get more positive reviews on your brand/business. How? Simply, it is just by using your platform, social media, email list to talk to your customers, and advertise because these times are cheaper than ever!
