Recap the progress made on my contact list as mentioned in Episode 1
I’m using a Virtual Assistant to organize my paperwork and data base. I hired her through Odesk and she has been working with me for almost a year now.
Im am struggling with getting the database whittled down to a manageable size of high quality relationships. I may have to start from scratch and just list out my best peeps and go from there.
Mickey describes her background and how she ended up being the Managing Broker and why she places such a priority on training.
She reveals the mistakes she made in the beginning of her career and what she would do if she had to start over in todays digital world.
