When I was rebuilding my business after the crash, I felt like a newbie all over again. There was a bit of hesitation with every lead and fear in every contract. But, just like a budding entrepreneur I did my due diligence and paired it up with the daily grind. It’s all about the grind when you’re starting and more if you’re restarting. What happens once you’re established? How do you view yourself and your business when the grind stops?

Today, my guest Douglas Schultz shares his backstory and his business practices and then proceed to ask me about how a leader’s mental state changes once the grind is over. I share my ideas about the podcast and what I have in store for my audience in the near future. I explain the importance of building relationships in real estate and why no business will grow on its own. I also provide some top-level tips for trimming your mailing list.
