3 Upcoming Events You Won't Want to Miss

Fall is here, and we here at the Jack Barry Group have some exciting events coming just around the corner.

First of all, if you have worked with us in the past we’d love for you to join us for our Client Dinner. This is coming up in about two weeks and is an event we host every other month.

We invite between 10 to 18 clients who have already purchased or sold with us so that everyone can get together and share ideas on investing and homeownership. 

Next, we have our Run for Your Life event on October 26th. At this event, teams run through a cemetery at night as part of a fundraiser. Costumes are optional, but it’s always a lot of fun.

This event is put on by MANNA (Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance), which is an organization that services sick and shut-in people. They deliver meals to approximately 65,000 people a month.

This is our second year sponsoring MANNA and we are absolutely honored to do so. Last year we had 19 people show up for our team and we hope to have similar, if not more, success this year. Also, once everything is finished, I’ll be taking everyone out for dinner.  If you’d like to learn more, you can find more information here

We’ve got some exciting events coming just around the corner.

Lastly, I’d like to talk about our Vision Board Party. Vision boards help you set goals. It is essentially an accountability tool in the form of a collage. On our team we tend to build our vision boards around where we’d like to be three years from now. We find this is a fun and effective way to work towards our aspirations. For further information, visit this page. 

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Alternative Lead Generation - on Real Estate Success Rocks

I was recently a guest on Real Estate Success Rocks with Patricky Lilly. In addition to talking about alternative lead generation and lead generation for life, we discussed a wide range of topics from entrepreneurship to masterminding to the philosophy of lead generation. 

Coffee meetings have been one of my more successful lead generation techniques. The opportunity to create a real connection as opposed to a fake, contrived one is too good to pass up. I detailed my strategy for Patrick and you can listen it to the podcast in its entirety above.

Why Is Lead Generation So Important in Life and Business?

If you want to have more relationships with friends, colleagues, business associates, etc., you need to lead generate.

I recently did an interview on the Real Estate Success Rocks podcast and talked about how to approach lead generation in both your life and business, and I want to elaborate on some of the important points of this topic for you.

 To listen to the full podcast episode, click here.

I’ve been in real estate for 10 years, and I have yet to find a business that doesn’t need lead generation. As Gary Keller says, “Until I have too many leads, that is my No. 1 problem in business.” Lead generation is a fact of business.

We have mastermind groups who work with business owners to get out of production and into strategizing, or how to start working on their business instead of in it. In order to do that, we need to have enough leads so that I can have more resources (e.g. money and time) to hire more people so I can grow my business bigger or grow another business in another industry.

What’s happened to me is the more people I help, the bigger and more successful my life gets. I’m not just talking about money, either. Lead generation is also a life skill. If you want to have more relationships with friends, colleagues, business associates, etc., you need to lead generate.

Lead generation is both a fact of business and a life skill.

You have to take massive action if you want massive results. I’m in anywhere from three to seven coffee shops a day meeting with people. Sometimes it’s 15 minutes, sometimes it’s an hour. It’s about attraction—not promotion. That’s how we get business, earn friends, and help people get to the next level in their lives.

For example, each member of our team does what’s called a “vision board” that we have to update every quarter. The vision board is essentially a poster board that you attach goal-related images to and hang at home somewhere that you can see every day. That way you know if you’re getting closer or farther away from your goal. My vision board is coming up next week, and if I don’t have a goal and I don’t know where I’m going, I’ll end up somewhere else.

If you have any questions about lead generation in your life or business, send me an email so we can help you get to the next level. I look forward to hearing from you.
