Secret — timesaving technique
Wake up early (4:00 to 4:30 a.m.) because by the time 8:00 a.m. hits — the day is no longer your own. It belongs to your clients, employees, meetings, etc. During those early hours — focus on several key priorities that are necessary for you to “win the day”.
Daily habit that contributes to success
Never focus on the immediate results.
Could have ruined your business — but now — an invaluable learning experience
In 2005 – 2006 the real estate market changed. Stacey went from having it all — to having to sell it all in order to keep her business afloat. She sold her house, sold her cars, and moved into one of her investment properties. She then dug in, used the right affirmations, and has since battled back to success! “The stories in our head become the stories of our life.”
Most critical skill you think business owners need to master to be successful

Most influential lesson learned a mentor
When you are being mentored by someone — it is a compliment to them — if you someday fly the coup and do your own thing.
Final Round — “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”
What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?
“Wished I would have applied the strategy of interviewing people 10 years ago. I cannot imagine the size of the network I would have by now had I started sooner.”
What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?
Build your own personal board of advisors by studying the books from all of the top people you want to learn from — and share those resources with your employees to facilitate continuous learning. Then take immediate action on what was learned.
How to exceed expectations and add the most value?
Hire people who are master networkers and excellent at strategically selecting people they want to spend time with, interview them, and expand their sphere of influence in the process.
What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?
- Never take “no” for an answer. You need to eat rejection for lunch.
- Believe in “you” even when no one else does. Ignore the naysayers.
- Break through the fear and pursue your big dreams.
