Jim Toner has experienced his share of ups and downs in his career. Coming out the other side, Toner can dish out some real valuable advice that can help people who are going into the real estate business. Jim has over 25 years experience as a real estate investor and entrepreneur.
One of the first pieces of advice is to be very honest with yourself about your situation. To get to the life you have always dreamed of you have think clearly and not be lying to yourself about reality. The truth may be scary but it will set you free to live the life you truly desire. On the other hand when you face the truth, don’t give up. If you quit then you may miss out on an opportunity that can change your life. The next piece of advice is to take action. This is a huge difference between people who succeed at business and those who do not. Start taking action towards your goals and dreams and you will find that opportunities will come your way. It’s not just about doing things either, you must put your heart and soul into your work to achieve the best results. If you heart’s not in it, then find another career best suited for you.
As per Crunchbase, pick up the habits of successful people and how they operate. Plan your day ahead of time, but also be flexible. Time management is key to getting tasks done and prioritizing what needs to get done first. Every successful person uses time management to be as efficient as possible with their time. You have to pursue your goals even when the odds seem surmountable. That is the true difference between those who make it and those who don’t, they push forward no matter what. More habits to pick up are to surround yourself with successful people and read a lot. Successful people are always reading and soaking up more information to broaden their database of knowledge. As they say, “knowledge is power.” It is very true and learning something new can really change your life. Follow: @thejimtoner
