5 Tactics to Keep Your Business in Great Shape

Even in these challenging times, you can still control your own environment, be proactive and come out a winner. The Buffini and Company 5 Circle Fit Challenge was launched in 2020 to help people focus their energies and operate in a peak state by following a series of recommended tasks and activities in the 5 circles of life – spiritual, family, business, financial and personal. Getting 5 Circle fit can help you stay motivated and energized no matter what life throws your way. As a real estate professional, it’s helpful to hone your focus on the business circle. Here’s how:

Stick to a Schedule

Working for yourself gives great freedom – you get to set your own hours and be in charge of your own calendar. However, with great freedom comes great responsibility! As a business owner, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer multitude of the tasks you have to complete every day. This is why a schedule to keep you on track is vital. Start and end your day at set hours. Also, designate special periods for dealing with administration, checking email and running errands so you don’t get distracted by non-lead generating activities that waste time. 

Invest in Relationships

Strong relationships are at the heart of every good business, so you have to make building them your business! Calls, notes and Pop-Bys are powerful ways to consistently reach out and connect with your clients and others in your sphere of influence. When you go above and beyond to serve your customers and prove your trustworthiness, they will become megaphones for you in the marketplace, eager to refer you to others. This way, the stream of referrals will never dry up!  

Stay Motivated

In difficult and demanding times, it can be hard to stay upbeat and motivated. To remain positive, be careful what you watch, read and listen to. Tune into educational and informative podcasts like “The Brian Buffini Show.” Avoid people that drain you and seek out resources that provide facts-based knowledge and encourage growth and personal development! 

Track Finances

When you’re running your own business, finances are a serious matter. To know exactly where your money is going, you need to create a spending plan for your business and yourself. Separate your business and your personal accounts, pay yourself a salary based on your budget and remember to factor in rainy-day reserves and a retirement fund. By conducting a financial overhaul and getting your business on the right track, you’ll outlast your competition and be able to live the good life.

Get a Real Estate Coach
