Basketball, Karaoke, Radio, and Napoleon Hill

This book is more about Shelley than real estate. This is more about virtue signalling than real estate. This is more about new age philosophy than real estate. Shelley styles herself as a modern-age Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore Show). She won a singing contest. She volunteered at a food kitchen -- those grueling three hours. She was an accomplished student athlete. She was the youngest radio something or another. She eats granola. She renovates houses. She willed herself to overcome orthopedic difficulties. She builds houses. She even went to cooking school in Tuscany. She even styles losing out on Rookie of the Year as an achievement. Shelley's preternatural self-confidence appears pathological. The best advice she gives is to be on time. All this being said, if you enjoy inspirational speeches and personal testimonials without any real substance, then you'll probably enjoy this book. The book reader was excellent. I would have preferred some practical advice.

A good read for new agents

Great book that helps new agents set up realistic expectations for their first year; it included tips for success while promoting a dream big mentality. The author did a great job of noting worries new agents may have and common rookie mistakes. The book was witty and informative.

Great audio book

This is a perfect back to basics book for anyone with a passion for real estate or just starting a business. It’s well written (love the narration) and highly entertaining! It was perfect to listen to on my long road trip. Her story gives me motivation to be the best I can be and I can see this book being beneficial for new and seasoned agents alike. Thanks! I will definitely recommend 365 to my friends and colleagues!

honest, no-nonsense advice

I was hooked the moment this book started. I've been a real estate agent for 10 years but listening to this book brought my first year back to life. The author learned more in her first year than many agents do during their entire career. Love that she showed her failures and the lessons she learned from them. Mindset, systems and a support network are the greatest assets in real estate.

A refreshing and realistic perspective

it helped you get a picture of what you'd be realistically doing when you're first licensed and what you should be doing.

Just so so

Book was basically a bunch of personal stories and experiences of the author. As a new agent struggling to get established in this unique COVID environment I found little useful information in this book. The most useful information about mindset can be achieved more efficiently by reading NAPOLEAN Hills Think and Grow Rich, which I highly recommend over this book.
