With the writing of this article, I've now published 500 posts to this blog, which amounts to about one article a week over the last 10 years. My first article was nothing to write home about, and I've published a lot of suspect articles since then. And no doubt there are plenty of unremarkable articles in my future. 

What I've learned, though, is that writing as a daily habit has been beneficial to me in many unanticipated ways. Writing as a daily practice has forced me to ask questions, to think, to research, to struggle, and most important, to publish. Stepping into this process day after day and week after week and month after month has helped me to clarify my philosophies and beliefs, and challenged me to keep learning.

At Mad City Dream Homes, we have the opportunity to help a lot of people. But it's about more than helping people buy and sell real estate. It's about helping people as a way of life. Helping people as a daily practice is such a nice space to be in. When we consistently show up with contribution to others, we contribute to our own lives, too, by giving ourselves daily purpose.

Times are tough for a lot of people right now, but with so many employers struggling to hire good employees, we can’t help but think that this is also a time of tremendous opportunity.

Taking the Courageous Leap of Faith

To us, this seems like the ideal time for someone with good character and a solid work ethic to latch onto a company that aligns with their values and learn that business from the ground up. Someone who is willing to put in the work, learn and apply new skills each day, and be patient and persistent. If they keep at it, then who knows, maybe someday they’ll be running the company?

We do believe most of us are capable of creating better lives for ourselves. But somehow, we need to be able to take that leap of faith, to allow ourselves to know our true potential,

Working in the world of real estate is full of surprises. With each new client we serve, we're always encountering new situations and new learning opportunities.

The biggest surprise of all

But for a new realtor on our team, their biggest surprise has nothing to do with clients, the market, technology, or competition. Their "big aha" is how much generosity and support they receive from the rest of the team.

As small business owners we have the freedom to choose our values, and then we have the responsibility to live by them. And one of the responsibilities that we are choosing to live by is our belief that we are here to create good jobs for great people.

So, what is a good job? 

Ask ten different people and you'll probably get ten different answers, but for us a good job really comes down to 4 key traits. 

#1: A good job is one where we are encouraged to grow throughout our whole career.

When we choose to lean into our unique talents, and when we commit to daily and lifelong learning, we experience a level of accomplishment that we never imagined possible. We experience amazing, life-changing benefits when we set high standards for ourselves

Technology makes it so easy to connect with friends and family. But there’s something really special about receiving a handwritten note.
