Pre-Closing!Open to all networkers!Workshop presented by Tom "Big Al" Schreiter Pre-closing can be described as a few phrases or sentences that we use early in the conversation, before we start our official presentation. These words prepare our prospects to think, “At the end of the presentation, I will make a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decision." With pre-closing, our presentation feels normal. No need for high-pressure. No begging. No forcing prospects for decisions. No loss of face. No embarrassment. Pre-closing our prospects turns our presentations into conversations, not sales pitches. What if our prospects wanted to buy or join ... before we started? That would make our careers fun and easy. And we can make this happen by learning the skills of pre-closing. Think about the following conversation: Distributor: “Find it hard to cover everything with just one paycheck?”Prospect: “Yes, of course.”Distributor: “Would it be okay if we had lunch with a friend of mine, and see how you can get an extra paycheck also?”Prospect: “Sure.”Distributor: “Okay. Let’s sit down and sort out a time now.” What happened? Why was this so easy? Because we used the skills of pre-closing, the conversation moved quickly in the right direction. Now the prospect is looking forward to taking action to get that extra paycheck. Pre-closing takes advantage of how the human mind wants to make decisions. Instead of using dated sales presentations and closing methods, we remove the stress of decision-making from our prospects. Prospects love it, we love it. Ready to take your business to a higher, stress-free level? Want your prospects to eagerly want what you have to offer? Get your tickets now to learn the pre-closing skills to move your business forward ... faster! Some things you should know: 1. You can always contact us [email protected] any questions. 2. Each ticket has a unique scan code, so you’ll need to bring your ticket to the training. 3. Since this is a live event, we refund tickets only if the event has to be cancelled. If you've purchased a ticket and find you can't attend, we encourage you to have a business associate use your ticket. Tickets are available up until one hour before the event begins, or until the event sells out. Only $30 for a ticket to attend this workshop. Because seating is limited, please purchase your tickets now. Hope to see you there! Tom "Big Al" Schreiter

During the recession, the market held strong with almost no decline in values and it hasn’t stopped growing since. This year, San Antonio ranked in the Top 20 list of Forbes "Where To Invest In Housing In 2017”. Last year home prices rose 7% even with a 7% undervalued home price giving an average median price $210K, well below the national average. San Antonio’s economy is focused primarily within the military, healthcare, government services, financial services, oil and gas, and tourism services which has helped to drive the city’s dynamic and diverse economy. It is home to 4 massive military bases between the Army and Air force as well as 5 fortune 500 companies. The roots of San Antonio’s dramatic business growth and economic vibrancy can be traced to a superb infrastructure, pro-business local government and a culture that embraces entrepreneurial sprit. All of this points to why San Antonio is ideal for real estate investors. Our experienced and knowledgeable Regional Rep from San Antonio will be discussing hand-picked single-family and multi-family properties in strong rental areas with high returns! Here are some topics and stats we will discuss in more detail: -New construction homes and multi-units that cash flow! -Why the rental market is on fire here -2nd fasting growing city in the United States -Lower than average cost of living index (93.2) -3.7% unemployment rate! -Which suburbs and neighborhoods are the best to buy in Click here to register for this event or to learn more.
Be a part of National Hike with a Geek Day (#HikeWithAGeekDay)! Hike with a Geek Day was created to bring awareness to the need for information and science workers, along with other geeks to step away from their computers and labs for a break, and soak up some exercise and nature. Official Hiking with Geeks events are happening all over the country (join a local event here). Here's how to participate (from the National Day Calendar) "Geeks beware! You’ll be cajoled, coaxed and perhaps prodded by friends and loved ones. But, this is your day. Go, take the lead. When asked, surprise them by whipping out your hiking boots, map and compass. Friends and family, don’t be surprised if your geeks have been waiting for just this moment all along. Visit hikingwithgeeks.com for inspiration or motivation. Use #HikeWithAGeekDay to share your adventure on social media." Don't see your city? Think there SHOULD be a group in your area? Let us know! Why National Hike with a Geek Day? Doesn’t everyone love a geek? We expect them to make our rocket ships and find cures for diseases, but we don’t often give them what they possibly need most… an excuse to get out from behind the computer or the lab, and into mother nature. A chance to connect with something other than bits or bites. June 20th is the summer solstice, and the perfect date to think of how miserably little oxygen there is indoors fueling the creativity of geeks around the world. Today, June 20th, we take our geeky friends outdoors for national Hike with a Geek Day, and give them some fresh air to fuel their rocket-ship-building curiosity and creativity. What is a geek?
