CarrotCast Podcast - Real Estate Marketing for Investors & Agents

We're bringing you a miro-episode of the CarrotCast just in time for the new year. I've talked a lot over the past few years about the power of visualizing your future and changing your habits to have more impact and become the person you want to be. This is something that I'm really passionate about and I'm convicted that if you want to make those changes in your life, it needs to happen today, not tomorrow, or on New Year's Day. I wanted to get personal in this episode and share with you a couple stories so that you can understand how this mindset has completely changed not only my life, but my wife's, my kid's, and even some of our members. Listen to this quick episode and then hit me up on Instagram. I want to hear how it impacts you. Also, don't forget to join me Dec 29th at 9:00 for my free annual EPIC planning call at I'm grateful to get to serve you and I'm super pumped about crushing 2019 with ya'll! See ya soon!

It’s been a really interesting year. This is the year that I've probably had to grow the most personally. As the team grows, you really start to look at yourself and go, "Man. The main bottleneck of growth in the company is you as the CEO." If you're not growing faster than the pace of the company, then you're gonna hold the company back. So, for me, there were spots where the company was growing fast and it could grow faster but the problem was I really needed to up-level the way that I lead. So in this episode, I'm going to recap my year for 2018 and some of the lessons, the key lessons, that I learned.

One thing I've learned through years of building our incredible team at Carrot is the goals we set have the ability to motivate, inspire, and push people towards their best efforts. But, they can also do just the opposite. Huge goals can wreck our happiness, contentment, and even our employees. The question isn't whether we can achieve those goals. But, it's about winning big and winning as a team. Hear how we set goals at Carrot, so you can have the freedom, flexibility, finances, and impact in your life.
