Here’s a Phenomenal Book for People With Type II Diabetes or High Blood Sugar

on Mar 18, 2019

If you know someone with Type II diabetes or high blood glucose levels, I strongly recommend the book titled, “The Diabetes Code” by Dr. Jason Fung. I got a top broker in our industry to read it and then they were able to quickly stop taking their four daily injections of insulin, and now the broker tells me that their blood glucose levels are lower than they were when the broker was taking their daily insulin injections!

In the book Dr. Fung explodes the myth around how diabetes is treated, showing us that insulin and drugs merely move the glucose out of the blood and into the vital organs, where it then does substantial damage. But his recommendations on diet and what to do along with the diet, is showing many people how to get off of insulin and drugs, and lower their blood glucose levels to safe levels naturally…

on Mar 4, 2019

We’re now getting into March, and if you haven’t been getting your ideal amount of prospecting done so far this year in January and February, you’re now risking not having the kind of year you really want to be having in your brokerage business.

Here’s a Phenomenal Book on How to Negotiate Powerfully

on Feb 25, 2019

There’s a book I’ve recently read that is a phenomenal book on learning how to negotiate more effectively. The book is titled, “Never Split the Difference”, and it’s written by Chris Voss, who was the FBI’s #1 negotiator for Americans who had been taken hostage by terrorists.

In the book Chris does a great job of of showing how his hostage-negotiating philosophies can be applied effectively in business, too, and I must say that with all of my training in psychology and Neurolinguistic Programming, he’s taken things to an entirely new level when it comes to persuasion.

One well-known Ivy League school invited him to negotiate along with their top experts, and he completely ate them for lunch, as he has a way of structuring questions when negotiating to get the other side to let go of their own position, and give in to what you want them to do. And it’s all done in a very friendly, easygoing manner, too.

So if you’d like to take your negotiating skills up to the next level, I highly recommend that you read this book!

Al Rose: The Passing of a Great Commercial Real Estate Broker

on Feb 18, 2019

Al Rose, who’s been a very prominent figure in commercial real estate brokerage in Los Angeles since the 1950s, passed away on Thursday, February 14th, and for those of us who knew him well, we know that we will never again meet someone quite like him within our industry.

He combined wisdom, success, knowledge, expertise, even-mindedness, complete honesty, a great devotion to ethics, and a wonderful sense of humor, all in one man.

I had the great pleasure of working for Al and along with him for many years, and I’ve never met anyone else quite like him within our industry. In an industry where we’re constantly dealing with massive egos, both in the clients that we’re representing and with the brokers themselves, Al always had his way of projecting calmness, professionalism, and certainty towards people within his transactions, and this would then usually have people align with his opinion on how they should then be moving forward….

How to Get Your Commercial Real Estate Listings Extended

on Jan 29, 2019

The Importance of You Prospecting Continually in Your Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Business
