I like the quote used in our last blog post https://richsandsseminars.com/2016/01/2016-a-peak-performance-year/ from Neotherapy that went like this: ““Peak performance is the maximum enhancement of all mental, emotional, physical and situational elements that let us reach optimal level.” Again, It’s not just physical, not just the act of “doing” something at your best effort. It’s a combination of elements that cause us to deliver a peak performance. Greg Wells, PhD, said this: “Peak… Read More »What is Peak Performance?
In the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of attending a few classes taught by several instructors.

The Campaign for Learning in the U.K. recently compiled research on an age-old topic: learning. Basically, the article was focused on sharing some statistics in order to get people to see the UP-side of learning. Some of the information they shared was: 95% of people think that learning about new things boosts your confidence.

2013 has been an outstanding year for my little project, Rich Sands Seminars. I taught 93 days this year, which was just short of my goal of 100 (work on that next time).

As far as topics, courses, subjects go, fifteen CRS two day courses were at… Read More »Thanks!

I have been very excited for the release of this course since I completed the instructor training in May. Originally named Working With Military Buyers, the new name Military Relocation Professional Certification is an awesome upgrade (as well as an accurate description of the course). Any agent wanting to create a service oriented (pun intended) business would be well advised to look seriously at this certification option. Skills learned can be applied to… Read More »Military Relocation Professional Certification
July is my down month this year. I do not have a single course scheduled for the entire month.

As markets change across this land of ours, many agents have expressed the desire for classes that are centered to the knowledge and skills needed to compete.… Read More »Catch the Wave!
