potential sellers, that can help you get to the root of their commitment and then use smart stories, meta - phors and analogies to illustrate your value, tools and solutions to help them realize that next level— that's where the magic lies. Stay focused on building that list - ing inventory and generating now business by prospecting FSBOs and expireds at least three days per week, for at least an hour each day. Commit to the activity, let go of the results and "get in the batting cage and swing" three days per week. I love when agents break through old fears and habits and embrace this strategy. At a recent event, I shared the powerful combination of ques - tions, mindset and skill it takes to list two out of every four of these prospects. During the lunch break, one agent who had been dead-set against calling FSBOs in the past went out to her car and made the calls. She came back in with two ap - pointments. Another agent recently emailed me following a workshop to say that she jumped in and made the calls and got four appointments. The difference is having the right words—and the right perspective. If you're calling people because you know, based on industry history, ex - perience, statistics and your gut, that you can honestly help FSBOs get a higher return on their investment, those calls get easier. Scheduling the listing appointment is then just a natural progression of the knowl - edge and resources you're able to of- fer. You're serving, not selling. You're coaching, not closing.
