Vancouver speaker, businessman and author Cameron Herold has a new book out called “Double Double, How to Double Your Revenue and Profit in 3 Years or Less“. I have had the honor of speaking at a few events with Cameron across North America over the past few years and always pick up something new. I sent Cameron a quick email asking if he would answer a few questions. Check them out below as well as an opportunity to WIN a copy of his book “Double Double“.
Tell us about yourself?
I’m likely best known in the business arena for being the Chief Operating Officer & driving force behind 1-800-GOT-JUNK?’s spectacular growth from $2 Million to $105 Million in revenue in just six years (2000-2007). Now, As the founder of BackPocket COO, I mentor a select class of promising CEOs, entrepreneurs and their teams, helping them make their dreams happen. With my book Double Double & my speaking events I’ve reached an even broader audience of entrepreneurs on five continents.
I also love golfing, skiing, tennis, cooking, red wine and spending time with my kids.
You new book “Double Double” just came out, how does it apply to Realtors?
It’s all about focus. Entrepreneurs, which Realtors are, need the systems & tools to grow their companies. There is so much noise in the business book area, and too many books that are just theory. My book Double Double was written for entrepreneurs, and written in the same way entrepreneurs tend to learn. It is loaded with easy to use systems to grow any company.
What advice do you have for todays Realtors, many of whom are working in struggling real estate markets?
It’s all about focus. Focus strategy, focused marketing, focused networking, focused efforts day-to-day, etc. Too many Realtors are trying to find the silver bullet – and their isn’t one. One of the top realtors I know has focused for the last 15 years on the same 16×16 block area, he drives every street in his area every day. He owns it. He’s focused. And I guarantee he isn’t wasteing time on social media, or marketing outside of his focus area. We can’t get more time, but we can get more focused.
How do you choose your Realtor?
I recently chose one in Whistler to purchase our chalet there in December. I went out to a few friends who owned there already and I asked them who was focused & hardest working. I found someone who has lived there for 20 years. Being a Realtor isn’t just a flash in the pan idea. Jeff Hume was focused. He showed us 18 places in one day, beating his previous showing by 10 😉 He listened to us. He didn’t over sell on anything. He worked really hard to help us buy.
