Taking Pride In My Profession

by Patrick Liew on August 17, 2011

For a while on a bi-monthly basis, I attended a networking lunch meeting with CEOs and usually, a Minister from the Cabinet. Other than the sharing by the Minister about recent trends, follow by a question-and-answer session, the program is generally free and easy.

When I attended these sessions or any other gatherings, it was very clear in my mind, I wanted to cultivate more mentors, mastermind group members, and friends. I believe my net worth is shaped by my network of friends and what I do with them.

I would also make use of every opportunity to let everybody know I am a real estate agent. I want them to know I am proud and passionate to be an agent. (I am not a ‘secret’ agent or ashamed to be an agent).

I believed it was my Creator’s calling for me to serve people for their real estate needs. I want to make sure I can do the best job.

Please let me share with you what I did in one of the networking meetings. I went around the room and distributed my business cards.

I tried to raise good issues and questions about real estate to both the Minister and the people around me to generate interest towards not myself but My HSR Family.

Inevitably, I would slip in a few chosen words about My HSR, our agents and our listings.

I was also prepared for the usual questions, eg. “How’s the market?” etc… I made sure I gave intelligent answers and offered possible investment actions so as to source qualified prospects.

At the end of that meeting, I found a prospective buyer who would eventually become a prospective seller. There were at least two high powered executives who were interested in My HSR’s projects.

I do not have a fixed or scheduled prospecting time. I prospect for real estate clients and potential agents to join My HSR family (amongst even total strangers) anywhere, anytime and in any way possible to achieve the best results.

If I am proud and passionate about being an agent, why should I not tell others about it.

Prospecting is therefore an integral part of me and my lifestyle. And I enjoy every single minute of it.

Are you proud and passionate about your career? Will you excel in your calling?

How will you share about your profession with anybody, anywhere and at anytime?


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
