You’ve heard it said: “perception is reality.” On today’s episode you’ll hear from top agent Erik Brown who’s leveraging his self-published book to elevate himself in a competitive market, taking control of how he’s perceived as unique and different from other agents.
Erik uses his book as a highly valuable business card. People toss away business cards. They don’t toss away books. People take books with them, they share them and they stay top of mind on the desk or coffee table.
