Ep #4: Rejection Breeds Resiliency (A Superior Skill Set that can Change Your Life) with Tracy Best

When I first started in real estate, I was handed a phone book and was told, “go”. We called it ‘dialing for dollars’ and I quickly learned that cold calling was an art form. My next guest is a true master in that field and has taken her skills to the top of one of the Big Five Banks in Canada.

Today, I share my studio with CIBC’s Senior Vice President of Mobile Advice, Tracy Best, to discuss her journey from being laid off to being responsible for over 1500 mobile mortgage advisors and investment consultants. Tracy’s journey spans across different countries, a variety of jobs, and shows us that diligence can take you anywhere you want to go. Her career path was asymmetrical and Tracy believes that you need to “look for opportunities to build a skillset, don’t look for opportunities to build your title or career.”

I’m excited to share Tracy’s advice as well as her story on this episode of The Richard Robbins Show.
