I wish I could adequately describe what it feels like to walk onstage in front of 6,000 dedicated real estate professionals who are…
…filled with energy.
…super attentive and engaged.
…incredibly supportive – of me AND of each other!
…obviously committed to improving themselves and the industry as a whole.
It’s like pure inspiration for me!
That’s what I felt every time I stepped on stage at last week’s Summit in Anaheim.
For those who were there, thank you so much for your amazing enthusiasm and your desire to improve yourself. You rock!
That feeling will stay with me for a long time, and was definitely one of my personal highlights from the week.
In this blog, I’m sharing nine more highlights from throughout the week that immediately come to mind. Let’s go!

An Inspiring Transformation from Jason Farris

Seeing my buddy Jason Farris share his story of losing 135 pounds from Summit 2017 to Summit 2018 was an amazing way to kick-off TOMX on Monday! When he took off the suit he was wearing one year previously to reveal his “new” self, the crowd instinctively jumped to their feet to give him a well-deserved standing ovation. Chills! So awesome! Congrats Jason!

Nuggets from Nick

Getting legendary tennis coach Nick Bollettieri to close out TOMX on Monday afternoon by sharing a small fraction of his tremendous wisdom was so special to me. He revealed what it takes to make a champion, why it’s okay to be nervous and why you should never say “I can’t do it.” But personally, the biggest nugget from Nick’s speech was this:
“Don’t measure yourself by the grade you get. Measure yourself by the effort you put in.”

Introducing Tech Enabled Coaching: The HUB…

Do you know what it’s like to work on something for two years and not be able to tell anyone about it? I’ll just say it felt really good to be able to unveil the new and improved version of The HUB on Tuesday afternoon. We’re now entering the era of what we call “Tech Enabled Coaching”. Our coaching members now benefit from these productivity-minded new opportunities I introduced:

  • The Smartest Referral Network
  • Video Role Plays

Tips from Tiffani

Wednesday’s keynote speaker Tiffani Bova from Salesforce proved why she’s a world-renowned master sales trainer. She shared the secrets of exactly what customers are looking for in a salesperson, and how delivering an extraordinary “customer experience” makes all the difference in today’s world.
