Investing in Land

When you’re confident with whatever it is, you expect the result. You’re not hoping for it – you expect it. So you can say “hey, here’s what we’re going to do and you can just lead.” I think when you’re starting out, your confidence is more like you’re not sure what to do, and I think that is picked up on.

One of the most effective ways to gauge the happiness of your customers and how good or bad you’re doing with the “Net Promoter Score”. It’s basically a question that asks how likely you are to recommend Carrot to a friend or colleague.

Two Carrot Team Retreats + Growing Our Team…

Carrot Year-End Review 2017 Carrot Summer Retreat

CarrotCamp 2017!

CarrotCamp was unlike most events. It wasn’t a workshop or seminar, nor was it a retreat. It was an immersive experience where we did a deep dive into the campers world. We unplugged and got out of the office and into nature, and worked with our team to get massive things done to uplevel marketing… all the while building relationships with other high-level real estate entrepreneurs that will hopefully last a lifetime.

Campers Edward Beck, Jeff Milligan, Tang Nguyen, Tim Oppelt, and Kyle Doney discuss what they enjoyed, struggled with, and how Camp benefited them both personally and in their businesses.

Thank you again 2017 CarrotCampers!

Be on the lookout for CarrotCamp 2018 Editions …
