3 Key Points:

  1. Starting out your real estate business should be focused on what you want to build. Without a vision, you cannot construct a roadmap.
  2. When you are maxed out in your capacity, you should consider hiring an assistant, if not before that.
  3. It is important to be strategic when planning the goals of your business. If you are not strategic, you will be aimlessly doing tactical tasks that don’t achieve your end goal.
