I first began helping Market Leaders / Real Estate Professionals create successful internet businesses  in 1997. Since that time, I've had the privlege of working with some of the most successful Real Estate Agents, Brokers and Market Leaders in North America. Many are still clients today and refer friends and colleagues regularly. The one attribute many of them share is LEADERSHIP.

What is a leader? Simple to answer right? A leader is somebody who leads others. I don't think it's that simple. As the father of 4 twenty something children and a long time football and hockey coach, I wonder what makes somebody follow you and what makes a team successful? So what really  makes a leader? What do some people understand about leadership that gives them an advantage in their business and lives? What can you do to be a leader? This the opening post in a series of posts that will address leadership in your Real Etate business. The series will share leadership facts and opinions you should know to help you in your life and real estate business.

In my experience, after observing clients who lead their Real Estate markets and lead successful teams and businesses; I say, A leader has a vision, the commitment and drive to achieve thier vision, and the talents/skills to accomplish their vision. Over the next couple weeks, my blog will discuss Leadership and what Focused Leadership can mean for your Real Estate Business, Income and Life.

Tomorrow, we'll begin discussing "The Major Attributes of Leadership"; beginning with the "Major Attributes of Leadership" as defined by Napolean Hill, author of "Think and Grow Rich."
