TIP OF THE WEEK

James

One of my all-time favorite books is “Give and Take” by Adam Grant. He’s a top-rated professor at Wharton and has a great podcast. His book is a mindset, an abundance mentality. He did a study of people who are givers. Those people are more successful and happier.

Also, get out and pound the pavement. Real Estate is such a touch and feel business. Talk to people. Make connections.
