What an unforgettable experience. The conference reminded me to find more ways to come out of my bubble and see through other perspectives and taught me lots of lessons that I will carry forward to guide me in my journey. I’m privileged to be able to share them with you today!! I went to a few different panels but these were the top 3 who stood out to me the most— Devon Brooks, Selina Gray and Danielle La Porte. Here are some takeaways straight from my iPhone Notes app! :)
You pursue me in the mountains, in coffeeshops, in the late night drive under the stars. You are everywhere and even when I feel like wanting to hide, there’s no running away. And I found that there’s no need to.
I just spent the perfect weekend in Banff and fell in love with it all over again! Not only is this little town perfect for hiking to chase frozen waterfalls, seeing wildlife, checking out different lakes and LOTS of mountain picture opportunities.. Banff avenue is also filled with local stores, restaurants, boutiques and of course picturesque coffee shops! Actually, scratch that because everything in Banff is Instagram worthy.
It was the easiest thing I’ve ever done and quite frankly, the best few minutes of my life. Dont know how long I was standing on that stage but you know what? It felt home. Like, I was meant to be there. I wanted to be there. I thought maybe this is what I was made for and I believed it. Having “speaker” under my name on that tag meant the whole world.
“10 months into my first year, I got nominated Edmonton-wide for Rookie of the Year. 7 months in, I had sold 27 homes. I don’t know how!! I honestly still don’t know how!! The average agent does 6-8 transactions in a year and I did 27 in my first 7 months! In my 2001 low-riding Toyota Celica and my Lululemons. I pre-drove all of my routes because I didn’t have a GPS and I didn’t know Edmonton. I worked harder than I had ever worked in my entire life! It was incredible. Super hard and super amazing at the same time.”
Here are some of the books I have read so far, I’m currently reading and the ones I am excited to read!! The Power of Positive Thinking, The Four Agreements, 365 Days of Happiness, The Power of Now, Start with Why and This Is Marketing..
“It’s a people business at the end of the day so if you’re good with people, you’re good with stress, if you’re okay with just sort of going with the flow, you’re gonna be alright. If you’re someone who’s forever panicking, forever cranky when things don’t go your way, then don’t do it. Because it’s gonna toss you over.”
