What comes next will be a surprise for some. I expect though that those who really know me, while surprised, actually will have seen it coming.
Friday will be my last day as Regional Vice President for the Coldwell Banker Schmidt Family of Companies.
On Monday, I will be in Madison, New Jersey at Realogy headquarters, where I will open a new chapter in my life as Director of Leadership Development for . Over the next six months, Tammy, the boys and I will wrap things up here in Northwest Michigan and prepare to move. It’s a big move, but one that I firmly believe is a positive one for my family which will result in many, many opportunities to broaden their horizons and richen their lives as well.
Personally, I can’t wait to get started in my new position. In the book "The Compound Effect" defined his complete formula for getting lucky:
Preparation (Personal Growth)
+ Attitude (Belief/Mindset)
+ Opportunity (a good thing coming your way
+ Action (Doing something about it!)
That formula certainly came in to play in opening the door to this new position, which allows me to leverage my talent, experience and passion to impact this brand that I love. I'll be helping Coldwell Banker managers and brokers grow in leadership and achieve the success of which they are capable and deserving, empowering them in turn to have a greater positive impact on the lives of their family, agents, family and their community.
I’m extremely proud to be Coldwell Banker Blue, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to make the brand even better.
