San Francisco, CA – December 17, 2012 – Zephyr Real Estate recently hosted a business-building workshop, “Elevate Your Business,” featuring guest speaker, Heidi Sloss. Sloss, author of the best-selling book, Fortune Is in the Follow-up®, is an acclaimed sales expert who teaches business owners, consultants and independent sales agents how to grow a thriving business in any economy.
The class demonstrated how to assess current business status, identify strengths, get the best return on investment, and, more importantly, how to grow a sphere of influence through networking, maximize social media to the best advantage, expand marketing efforts into new areas, and a review of the basics. The session included real tools, assessments and worksheets to provide a working business plan by the end of the day.
Sloss lived up to her reputation and delivered her motivational message to an engaged audience. Feedback has been very positive as those strategies have been put to the test by the 75+ agents in attendance at the workshop. “Creating a business plan was an excellent benefit of this event,” commented Shine Wu, a Realtor at Zephyr’s West Portal office. “However, my personal favorite was hearing five of the company’s top producers share their success stories - very educational and inspiring.”
The “Elevate Your Business” workshop is one of many offered by Zephyr to its agents, and future educational opportunities are on the books for 2013. “It is gratifying to see our agents respond so enthusiastically,” said Steve De La Peña, Vice President - Strategic Services for Zephyr. “Our work is made easier with the right tools, and Zephyr is committed to providing those tools.”
