WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? We write our own scripts, live in what we ourselves create and we're ultimately responsible for everything that happens to us!
Your attitude towards life defines not only who you are, but the quality of that life. Life is not a dress rehearsal, your create your life. What are you thinking. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking...Steve Jobs.
Have the courage to follow YOUR HEART AND INTUITION!
Are you living a 'regret-free' life...etc.
We can't escape fate, but...etc.
What you choose to create and focus on...etc.
You can't change the past, but you can...etc.
What you think of me is...etc.

The effort you give to converting leads must match the effort you give to generating them!
"Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find they've got a second. ~ William James
Today I will cover the 3 steps to Lead Conversion (this is critical!):
1) Capture contact information
2) Connect with the lead
3) Close for an appointment
In order to connect with the lead, you need to follow scripts, ask great questions, listen with good intentions, mimic, mirror and match, and practice this daily to master it!
The 6 connecting questions (master these):
1) Who are they?
2) What do they want or need to do?
3) Where do they want or need to do it?
4) Why do they want or need to do it?
5) When do they want or need to do it?
6) How do they plan to do it?
NOW it is time to CLOSE! The lead wants and needs you to!
There are many different ways to close, pick the ones that work for you!
Lastly, for those leads you can't convert today, you need to have a system in place to CULTIVATE THEM! Build that pipeline!
Lead conversion is one of the most skill-based aspects of your real estate sale business. You must master this!

Tonight's Special Guests - The very Talented Film Director Shanice Williams
Shanice says in her Bio
She has been telling stories since elementary school, when she wrote her first play about a little girl who faces some harsh adversity. She continued to write throughout her school days, wowing her English teachers with her creativity and natural storytelling ability, which she attribute to many hours spent watching television as a youngster. Martin and Law & Order SVU are two of her all-time favorite television shows, and Malcolm X and What Dreams May Come are two of her favorite films of all time.
But she says her love of story was born by reading novels. She enjoyed reading different authors, including Terry McMillan and John Steinbeck, and she thoroughly enjoyed novels by V.C. Andrews and Stephen King. Taking in all these aspects of storytelling, She was bound to create her own alternate universe at some point. Her dream was realized in 2014 with the production of Waiting Room, her first short film, which won Best Film at the TPN Film Festival, December 2015, in Atlanta. She is currently in pre-production on a project in which She co-wrote the screenplay, Family Stranger, and she is developing two scripts for the web and cable television as well.

Carina Monteiro Silva, mother of two children a boy aged 10 and a girl aged 13.
I was abandoned with 3 months of life but I had a lot of love from my grandparents who created me.
However my grandmother died and the rest of the family who never accepted me turned me away.
Determined I swore to myself that I would be able to succeed in life and always fought with dignity, justice and always head held high but with all humility and respect that was passed me by my grandparents.
I consider myself very creative, i love writing scripts for films since i was 7 but never dared to show them to anyone.
In fact, with only 11 years old I wrote a book but a teacher published it as his own and i never trusted anyone again.
I not covet wealth or fortune, but like any mother (except mine) I intend to give my children a better life and that's what gives me motivation when life preaches me a trick and have to get up with no hand to help.
In 2014 decided to create a brand linked fashion where i could use all my creativity and in 2015 after much research, many hours of study i registered the mark and became the CEO of Guilty Project, my third child.
I have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/guiltyprojectfacestore/?ref=hl and soon will launch the official website of the brand and the launch of the new collection.

GUESTS: World Music composer / performer Farzam Salami, and the podcast troupe "We Found Microphones" on Aziz Ansari's MASTER OF NONE. THE MOVIE SNEAK is honored to welcome New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster. The most critically acclaimed creator of "novelizations" (the "reverse" art of adapting films and their scripts into books instead of the other way around), Foster's works include ALIEN, OUTLAND, THE THING, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, ALIEN NATION, THE BLACK HOLE, CLASH OF THE TITANS, STARMAN, PALE RIDER and both J.J. Abrams STAR TREK reboots. He's creator of the original script ("In Thy Image") which became STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE. His non-novelization books include SLIPT, TO THE VANISHING POINT and the popular SPELLSINGER and PIP AND FLINX series. And his near career-long association with the STAR WARS universe includes the novelization of the original 1977 film (ghost-written as "George Lucas"), the first original "expanded universe" entry - the wildly popular SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE, along with STAR WARS: THE APPROACHING STORM and the recent STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Lovers of both film and literature will get as much of a kick out of this one as we did!
Born in Philadelphia, PA to Janet Taylor, who was a model and Robert Bullock, an artist, who also served in the Navy, Jillian was only two years old when her mother and father divorced. It was actually her mother and stepfather, Jake Stein, a member of the Philadelphia Italian Mafia, who raised Jillian.
Adding two more children to her life, Jillian continued with her studies by transferring to La Salle University. She was promoted to a full-time reporter at the newspaper while she was still in college. Although it took Jillian 11 years to graduate college she earned her degree in 1991 with a BA in Communications, with a heavy concentration on journalism and film production. After graduation, Jillian moved from journalism to film in order to fulfill Jake’s dream of her becoming a filmmaker. Jillian was fortunate to get an internship on the set of Spike Lee’s movie Malcolm X.
Jillian loved the process of filmmaking so much that she worked on her own movies, (Spirit and A Filmmaker’s Personal Journey), and other filmmakers’ movies as a screenwriter, director, producer, actress, or fight choreographer. She was able to secure that last position due to her extensive background in martial arts, (she holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and one in Wing Chun), and boxing. As a former competitive martial artist, she is also certified as a personal trainer and currently trains in boxing and Muay Thai.
She has sold two scripts in her career so far; The Champion Inside, a drama that involved boxing and cancer and Scar Across My Heart, a drama that included mixed martial arts and rehabilitation after prison. Due to her expertise as a screenwriter and a filmmaker, in 2006, Jillian was asked to be a screenwriting judge for the Set in Philadelphia Screenwriting contest, which is sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. She has been a judge each year since that time.
