Do you know what it’s like to be told that your big idea is impossible?
Are you seeking opportunities to create more freedom and flexibility in both your life and your career? Have you maybe considered even building a business or team on your own? If your answer is a “Yes!” to any or all of these questions, then episode #33 of the Offer Accepted podcast is totally meant for you.
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the TC giants, Michelle Spalding. Yet we didn’t talk about transaction coordination; instead, we dove into what success really looks like for an entrepreneur. If you want to create a new path for yourself and to follow your dreams, you will appreciate Michelle’s positive outlook, ability to surmount obstacles, and insightful perspective.
Michelle’s unique take on defining success for yourself will be valuable to anyone who is thinking about building a business, or who already owns one. Listen in as we talk about how to release limiting beliefs, how to set boundaries with your clients, and most essentially, how to enjoy the journey.
Before building a business of her own, Transaction Management Consultants (TMC), in 2005, Michelle worked as a closing agent at a law firm in Central Florida. She knew that the REALTORS© she had been working with needed help, yet most could not afford a full-time assistant, nor did they want the responsibility of being an employer. So she created TMC as a way to offer them support with their transactions at a reasonable rate. Michelle’s passion for helping others find success has grown alongside the size of her team over the past 15 years.
Michelle published her first book, The Road from Contract to Close: How to Successfully (and Easily) Manage the Details without Losing Your Mind – Or Your Clients!, in 2015 and she now provides private consulting and coaching services in addition to supporting her team at TMC. She is a frequent guest speaker for in-person and virtual training events, conferences, seminars, and webinars in the real estate industry. In 2017, she created an online training program for transaction coordinators called the Transaction Coordinator Academy in order to train and support TCs across the US.
