“Once I became consistent with doing video, I just started to be known.”

“It takes a while for people to know, like and trust you when you are using a video.”

“I didn’t start doing a video to get a transaction, I did it to build a brand.”

“I wanted to attract business to me instead of having to keep asking people to work with me.”

Key Takeaways:

You have to look at giving up commission to hire help as an investment and not a loss. 

You have to be willing to put in the time for any marketing strategy to work. 

Creating a brand is the single most important step you can take to become known in your market. 

Having a team allows you to buy back your time so you can be happier with your life.
