3 ways for brokers to get informed and inspired

Lightbulbs-320x298.jpgLet’s face it, it’s easy to get burnt out sometimes. Amid the day-to-day hustle of meeting prospective clients and trying to close deals, we don’t always carve out time to recharge properly or seek new inspiration or advice.

And yet, hearing some out-of-the-box perspectives and learning something new is a great way to get a boost and stay sharp.

Fortunately, it’s easy to fit that inspiration into your schedule. There are plenty of videos, webinars and podcasts that can keep you up to date on the latest commercial real estate, investing and economic trends, not to mention sales strategies and general motivation.

We all have mobile devices, headphones and time during or between tasks where we could be absorbing extra information. Whether you’re exercising, commuting or unwinding for the day, these quick-hit sessions can keep you on your toes without forcing you to commit too much precious time to them.
