RISMedia's REAL ESTATE January 2019 57 Plan It Out To start 2019 on the right foot, it's a good idea to visualize how you'd like to see your year take off. If this is your first year in the business, bud - geting is crucial, especially in the first half of the year. Your budget should include digital and print mar - keting materials, business collateral and a business website. During this time, you should also plan on build - ing out your database with prospects by farming neighborhoods, and net - working with peers and their spheres of influence, as well as family and friends. If you're a more seasoned real estate professional, the same rules still apply; however, if the op - portunity presents itself, consider paying it forward by mentoring a new agent until they get their sea legs. Goal-Keeping If your 2018 was full of milestones and achievements, congratulations! Focus on bringing that energy into 2019. If you didn't meet all your goals last year, try not to beat your - self up over it. Instead, do a hard reset and strategize on what you can do to meet this year's goals. On the same note, you'll want to have specific goals to work toward. For example, if your goal is to close four transactions in the first three months of the year, take the steps needed to turn that goal into reality. In due time, you'll meet those mile - stones and will continue to keep that momentum rolling. Take It a Step Further Any real estate professional will tell you that you have the power to take your career to the next level. At Re - alty ONE Group, all of our real estate professionals have access to a bevy of tech tools, coaching materials and continuing education courses, train - ing and broker support. If your bro- kerage offers additional training on how to close the sale or sponsors networking events, strongly consider attending them. Industry conferenc - es and seminars also serve as great resources where you can network and receive valuable knowledge that will advance your career. 2019 can and will be a very satis - fying year for your real estate career, but only if you put in the time, effort and energy. Remember that there's always room for improvement no matter where you are in your career, and that success isn't defined by dollar signs, but by what you can ac - complish. Think big, accept the chal- lenge, and face it head-on.

It all begins with a plan, an outline of your goals and a commitment to taking on any additional tools and training that will launch your real estate career to new heights.
