My next guest on The Richard Robbins Show represented Canada at the 1984 Olympics and now leads his own real estate team inside the country’s capital in Ottawa, Ontario.
Bill Meyer, a 35-year veteran in the Ottawa real estate market, is the Team Lead of The Tulip Team, one of RE/MAX’s top-performing teams in Canada.
After the 84’ Olympics, Bill knew he had to provide for his wife and young child. He jokes that it was the barrier of entry to real estate that really helped push him into the industry. “Go to Algonquin College for 6 weeks, get your real estate license and we’ll hire you.”
Today, and nearly 40 years later, he helps his team of 12 agents and 5 support staff service the Ottawa, Ontario area with real estate buying and selling. Bill tells me that his number one priority is helping others achieve success. “What can I do to help you be successful in real estate? Most people, when they get into this business, don’t know how to build a solid foundation for their business and my job is to do exactly that.”
As a former Olympic athlete, Bill brings with him the discipline, dedication and desire of an Olympian to his real estate business, and is able to apply that experience to the training and mentoring that he provides to his team.
In this episode of The Richard Robbins Show, Bill shares his secrets for going for gold in every aspect of your life. He shares stories of training for the Olympics and how you can bring that same energy into your business and personal life. He explains how to eliminate attrition from your business, how to build commodore among your peers and how he plans to live until he is the ripe old age of 111.
