There should be no “work-life balance”. Most of your energy should go towards launching your brokerage business with the remaining time spent with family and on health and fitness. Bonus tip: work an extra six hours every weekend. Most new salespeople are working long hours during the week. That’s a good start, but there are diminishing returns to working long days. Those last few hours are usually not that productive. I recom- mend an agent work a full workweek and then add on an additional six hours over the weekend. Those six hours over the course of a year will result in an extra month and a half of productivity. continued from page 2A

Here is the math: 6 hours X 50 work weeks in a year = 300 hours 300 hours / 50 hours in a week = 6 additional work weeks By adhering to this sched- ule, a new salesperson can boost their productivity by 13 percent while avoiding burn- out. An added benefit of this schedule is that the salesper- son will save money on din- ning out and entertainment. Most salespeople underesti- mate the time and effort it will take to launch their brokerage career. By sticking to a strict schedule and high activity levels the sky is the limit! Brian Hosey is first vice president/ division manager of Marcus & Millichap’s Mid- Atlantic Division. MAREJ
