What if you could construct the life of your dreams in real estate? What if you could transition smoothly into small business ownership, taking bold steps out of your 9-to-5 job? Join me as I explore these possibilities with Chandler Reed, a seasoned entrepreneur who did just that. Chandler’s journey from finance to real estate professional to CEO of his own business is an electrifying testament to the power of networking, taking risks, and seizing unexpected opportunities. His story is a real-life embodiment of what it truly means to build a satisfying life beyond just financial success.
Navigating the world of entrepreneurship is no small feat. Chandler shares the intricacies of managing and growing a business, including the emotional toll of letting team members go, and the challenges of running a project-based business. He also reveals his future plans, which include purchasing another business and building an online community for aspiring entrepreneurs. But Chandler's entrepreneurial journey is not just about the trials; it's also about the triumphs. He has hosted bootcamps for those eager to learn about business searching and buying - a clear demonstration of his commitment to helping others make a similar shift from corporate life, and a testament to his passion for business. Sales and people management are crucial components of entrepreneurship.
Chandler and I explore these in-depth, discussing misconceptions about sales, the importance of authenticity, and how to provide real value to customers. We also dive into the art of managing employees – drawing from our experiences in leading sports teams and divisions. Learn why clear communication, understanding employee needs, and leading by example are vital in creating a thriving and engaged team. Join Chandler Reed and me for this exploration of real estate entrepreneurship, business growth, and the pursuit of a fulfilling life. Ready to carve out your own path in the business world?
