A lot of agents focus too too heavily on how much they are earning, rather than the number of transactions they are doing. Why is this a big mistake? How do you do outbound prospecting in high volumes? How can you undermine your competition to become the top agent in your market in 5 years? On this episode we talk to the Beast Mode prospector himself, James Festini.

It is possible to triple your income through strong branding and intense prospecting. Such action is going to cause a massive breakthrough in spite of yourself, because of the sheer volume of contacts. You’re not going to overcome your prospecting fears sitting in your office thinking about them. You actually have to get into action and realize your fears weren’t real in the first place. To really succeed, your goals should be oriented towards number of transactions rather than how much you earn.
