I'm Patrick Lilly, the founder of Real Estate Success Rocks, an organization devoted towards assisting you in fulfilling your dreams in business and in life. We've partnered with REV, a select group of top producing agents, to bring you the best content in our industry specifying what works in today's market place and what does not, how you can grow your business on your terms, and be inspired to do more with your life.

So what does success mean to you? And how do you create a meaningful life and business? For some it may be becoming the #1 agent in your market, for others it might be spending less time at work without comprising service or profit, or possibly it involves your personal or professional legacy. Through our podcasts we will explore relevant topics that inform, clarify and inspire while providing concrete tools and actions to achieve your unique goals. Our aim is to align your personal and professional lives to be in harmony, promoting true success and ultimately, true happiness. We are launching the podcast with three episodes: first, an interview with a legend in our industry, Jean Shine. A second episode combining Lead Generation and Time Management with Ashton Gustafson and finally a segment we call: "What Works", which is a compilation of five hot topics from our 2014 conference. New episodes will post every Tuesday and run for approximately 35 minutes. Me, I've been selling residential real estate in Manhattan and Brooklyn for 31 years now and my team is consistently ranked in the top 250 teams in the nation by the Wall Street Journal. I am also a transformational life and business coach. One of the biggest lessons that I've learned in life is that: as I become a better human being, I also become a better real estate broker; and that holds true conversely: as I become a better agent, I also become a better person. If you find our podcasts interesting, you might want to attend our conference this September in Seattle, Washington. It is being hailed as one of the best conferences in our industry.  Go to www.RealEstateSuccess.rocks for more information. We would love your feedback, comments or questions.  You can contact us at team@realestatesuccess.rocks. You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook. Thank you for joining me on this journey towards personal and professional fulfillment.
