Why I Started The Living Houston Goals Workshop
A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ~Antoine De Saint-Exupery. This quote is simple, but I love it because it’s true. I learned the hard way in my life and my business that a goal without an action plan is nothing more than a wish. And I wasn’t willing to settle for wishing; I wanted f*cking results. This realization led me on a journey that culminated in joining a program where I was fortunate enough to have mentors and training that taught me everything I needed to learn to bring a goal from an idea to fruition.
From Knowledge To Passion
This knowledge became so influential in my own life that sharing it with others soon became a passion. Helping people learn what it takes to achieve their goals is something I take very seriously. So much so that a few years ago, I started holding a Living Houston Goals Workshop in November for my staff, agents, and team members to collaborate, brainstorm, and get up-close-and-personal with our goals and how we can best achieve them. In the workshop, I would guide them through deciphering their core values, SWOT analysis with peer reviews, writing and revising their mission statements, and hand-selecting goals for the upcoming year. Before long, I began receiving so much positive feedback from attendees that it was overwhelming. My staff shared what they learned with friends and family, and soon, I had people outside of my brokerage asking to attend.
I Love A Party
More people was a good problem for me; I LOVE a party, and I always say the more, the merrier, so in November 2020, I held my largest Goals Workshop to date. This workshop stretched me in new ways, pushed me out of my comfort zone, and gave me a glimpse of what I’m truly capable of as a mentor to others–exactly how I would like the attendees to feel. My goals course is real estate-centric, but the material and coursework can be applied to almost anyone’s life or interests—whether you’re building a career, a stay-at-home mom, or you’re only working on yourself.
I developed the goals course and companion workbook over time. It was a labor of love that allows others to grow. Here’s an overview of what my goals workshop looks like:
Day one of the workshop:
-Narrow down your core values
-Develop your personal mission & vision statement
-Call yourself out on bad habits
-Take a good look at your strengths & weaknesses to help you take advantage of your skills & talents that come most natural to you (this is what really sets you up for success)
-Itemize your short & long-term goals
Day two of the workshop:
-Calculate your personal & business overhead so you know what you need to survive AND thrive
-Reverse engineer EXACTLY what this will require
-Build a clear goal, vision, and “to-do list” of exactly what to do every single day when you wake up to achieve it
-Learn specific funnels you can begin working on to attract business
-Know how to write an action plan to take intentional steps towards a goal
-Learn what to do on days when you don’t feel like working towards any goals at all
In the final session of day two, I have a One-on-One with each participant, and we strategically write an action plan for their top 3 most-prioritized goals. Not to mention, you’ll meet like-minded individuals who will become trusted confidants that know your goals. These people can help hold you accountable throughout the year when life inevitably veers off track–if that is what you desire.
Let’s Make Sh*t Happen
As a mom, wife, friend, aunt, business owner, Broker, and Realtor®—I’ve learned first-hand what you need to knock-out goals. Having a plan to act as your North Star is one of the single, most important things you can do for yourself, and my workshop can set you on the path to success.
I’m more excited than ever for my 2021 Goals Workshop; it may be 11 months away, but the goals that I set in place for my next workshop started before the last one even came to an end. Anyone ready to stop making excuses and allow positive sh*t to flow into their lives is welcome.
