“It’s about finding the unique strengths of the individual that’s in front of you and drawing out the best potential in them.” — Dave McGhee

Coaching is one of the fastest growing industries. Everyone from new small business owners to successful CEOs seeks a coach to help them achieve their goals and drive their businesses forward. In addition to providing accountability, a coach can help you see the big picture and stick with a system. In this Take-Over Tuesday episode, Dermot Buffini interviews Buffini & Company Vice President of Coaching, Dave McGhee. A long-time coach at Buffini & Company, Dave shares how he got into real estate and coaching and delves into why everyone needs a coach. You’ll learn the three primary things a coach can offer, the biggest mistake people make when they’re trying to handle feelings of overwhelm in their businesses, and how a coach can help you at all levels of business, whether you’re just starting out or you want to take your business to the level of lasting significance.

“This is content that shaped and challenged my thinking and spurred me on to greater and greater success.” — Brian Buffini

Although Og Mandino went on to become an inspirational writer and founder of what became Success Magazine, he wasn’t always successful. An insurance salesman by profession, his alcoholism caused his relationship with his wife and child to suffer. When he hit rock bottom, he was inspired to live after hearing a choir sing “Amazing Grace” at a cathedral and dedicated himself to writing. This daily habit eventually became “The Greatest Salesman in the World.” In this episode, Brian Buffini outlines ten of the scrolls included in Og’s seminal work, which helped Brian shape his own thinking and encouraged him to succeed. By reading over these 10 affirmations each day for 30 days, you’ll begin to reshape your thinking; if you review them every day for 10 months, you’ll reshape your life.

“If you talk to a man in a language that he understands, it goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, it goes to his heart.” — Nelson Mandela

Technology makes communicating with family, friends and clients easier than ever before; however, it’s also made it more difficult to connect with one another. As a result, we encounter misunderstandings with those around us because we’re not connecting with them on their terms. In this episode, Brian Buffini interviews Kevin Buffini, head of the Heritage Profile team at Buffini & Company to discuss the common sales and communication styles we share. Kevin not only outlines how to identify which styles we belong to, he also offers tips to help us communicate better with those of the opposite style. You’ll learn the advantages and disadvantages of each style, how our style and the way we perceive things impacts how we react, and the one phrase to use to clear up any miscommunication. Learn to communicate better with family and clients alike so you can deepen your relationships with them.

“I never want to let my priorities become casualties.” — J’aime Nowak

Top producing real estate agent, superstar recruiter, successful broker, dynamic speaker, wife, mother: J’aime Nowak has achieved a lot in life, but what people might not know is she’s dealt with a lot of pain and challenges as well, from leaving her Rhode Island hometown with her family to build a new life in Arizona to the untimely passing of her husband when she was only 31.

“If you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you are and with what you are.” — Russell Conwell

Although it was published in 1890, the book “Acres of Diamonds,” by Russell Conwell, outlines timeless principles that help people see and appreciate the opportunities below their own feet. In this episode, Brian Buffini shares excerpts from this work that have had a profound influence on his life, as well as his most important takeaways.

What do the stories of a farmer in the Middle East, a rancher in California, a man in Pennsylvania, and a college professor in Massachusetts have in common? They all sold their homes in search of riches elsewhere, only to find the riches they sought were right there all along. If you learn to see and seize the opportunities in front of you and adopt these enduring lessons, you’ll be well on your way to finding your acres of diamonds.
