Johnathan Fanning – Leadership Expert, author of three books and leadership coach over 15 years. Who are you becoming?
“The biggest challenge for a leader is when they can value both results and relationships the same.” Matt Teter
People, are asking three questions about you:
1. Can I trust you?
2. Does this person care?
3. Can this person help me?
Leadership is built on trust.
Lessons from Jonathan’s life:
Ever been hit in the head with a frying pan? More than once? Perhaps found yourself hanging off of a 106 foot bridge? Had 4 cars totaled by others while you were inside?
Stood in Assisi, Italy, and decided that the best thing you could possibly do next in life is quit the job that your whole family thinks defines you? Heard your grandparents’ entire lives summed up by a single sentence at their funerals and thought, Will my life turn into a single sentence, too?”
Wondered what this 1 life is really all about?
Been totally inspired by a legend from history and thought, “I should do something like that” or “I should BECOME more like that person”?
Built a career, only to have a constant feeling of “There’s got to be more to my life than this” and “Perhaps I’ve been climbing a ladder that’s leaning on the wrong wall”?
Evaluated climbing down from that same ladder, moving it to a different wall, and starting the climb all over again? Started a business, built that business, become that business, and realize that it was the wrong business for you?

Author of over 19 Books including Mastering the Art of Selling Real Estate.
"Your income is in direct proportion to what you are saying" Tom
About Tom Hopkins:
Tom Hopkins wasn’t born to wealth and privilege. He was a mediocre student and began his work life in construction carrying steel. At the age of 19, he was married with a child on the way and trying to find a better way to support his young family.
Since he wasn’t afraid of meeting new people and was known to be somewhat talkative someone suggested he try selling. After looking around at the people who were dressed well and driving new cars, he decided on the field of real estate.
At the time, real estate was considered an old man’s profession. There weren’t many women in the field and certainly no teenagers. It took Tom several tries to pass his licensing exam, but he eventually succeeded.
The next hurdle was to find someone to hire him. Visiting real estate offices around town on his way home from his construction job, Tom quickly learned the negative impact of the first impressions he was making.

About Deric Lipski:
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a South Easton real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
