How do you find your highest leverage when it comes to time? Why is it so necessary to commit to some kind of schedule? On this episode, Jan Pitman shares her expertise and goes into detail about going from agent to entrepreneur.

Jan also shared what her days look like, how she keeps her database engaged and how she was able to find the most valuable skill she can leverage. We also discussed the importance of ramping up your outbound lead generation, and towards the end of the show we talked about making sure the freedom of business doesn’t affect your productivity.
We also spoke about:
-Developing multiple income streams

People get into business because they want freedom and flexibility, to be their own bosses, and to get unlimited income. Ironically, those are the same things that actually ruin their businesses. After you get your license, freedom is earned by the activities you actually engage in. For that to happen, you have to focus on some kind of process. Do an activity that generates income, allows you to leverage yourself and also educates your team at the same time.
