Breaking up is never easy

Let’s get personal, baby:

I have a confession to make.

I never liked ending relationships.

Usually she would break up with me or just not call back, so I didn’t have to do the ugly part.

Didn’t have to deal with a messy disentanglement.

Didn’t have to deal with the angry tears or the final farewell on some doorstep in the rain.

Yes, sometimes I would try to leave gracefully, but anytime I made the move to distance myself they always wound up chasing me harder.

I didn’t get it at first.

(But boy, if I knew then what I know now…)


When you pull back or leave, the other side will usually chase you harder to try and keep you.

We all want what we can’t have.

It’s just human nature.

But in your real estate business there isn’t any room for bad relationships.

A bad relationship can cost you mucho time and mucho dinero.

So you have to make a clean break as soon as possible when you know that a relationship isn’t working out.

This might be with a property owner who is wasting your time and doesn’t really intend to do the deal with you.

It might be with a team member who no longer gives you the support you and your real estate business need.

Or it might mean ditching a real estate training program that isn’t working for you, even if you are sticking around trying to “get your money’s worth” (News flash: If it ain’t giving you want you need now, sticking around ain’t gonna make it magically happen).

It’s time to cut the cord.


It’s not you, it’s me.

So man up and do the right thing.

You’ll be glad that you just moved on.
