Highlights from the interview
“You have to be investing in something. You have to make your money work for you or else you’re going to be grinding away for the rest of your life, stocking away everything you can and then hope that you don’t outlive your money.”
Being a good listener makes you a good salesperson.
“If you can listen and then occasionally ask the right questions to guide a conversation, people tell you exactly how to sell. They’ll tell you everything they need, everything they’re concerned about, every reason why they would be in business with you and every reason why they wouldn’t, and you can use all that to craft a great presentation.”
“The best salespeople love ‘no’.”
“Too much real estate knowledge might impede sales.”
