We’ve all heard about the very tough economic times in Michigan-high unemployment, loss of businesses and a high foreclosure rate of homes-a perfect opportunity for a motivational speaker!!


Well, I was brought in by RE/MAX of Michigan to lift spirits and discuss strategies that could be used immediately by the RE/MAX Realtors. Let’s face it they have a tough job and frankly as a motivational speaker; I’ve got my work cut out as well. Here are some of the key points we discussed:

  • We are afraid of feeling completely out of control. As adults we have a tendency to focus on all of the things we can’t control; bad economy, will clients like me, am I interesting enough? I love to remind my audiences to focus on the things they can control-remember as children we found ways to solve problems and not focus on the things we couldn’t do!
  • We will have failures, they may be embarassing-get over it! As children, we got right back on the bike and found ways to overcome obstacles.
  • Find a Purpose bigger than you. Focus on your family, helping your friends, how about a contribution to the Ronald McDonald House. Focus on your passion!!

We had a great meeting and I want to thank Re-max of Michigan for allowing me to speak to your group. If you would like more information about me and my programs please view my motivational speaker profile at LinkedIn.
