An Affirmation a Day 
The May issue of R.E. Real Estate Magazine Atlanta features the article Scientific Self-Motivation: Learn How to Use Positive Thinking to Improve Your Performance - "An Affirmation a Day Can Keep the Doctor Away (and Take You to the Bank!)" by Sandy Lawrence, Author, Coach and Professional Speaker with REALinTouch Coaching.

R.E. Real Estate Magazine is a monthly full-color magazine published in major cities across the country that focuses on motivational, inspirational and educational information.  The magazine is distributed to over 6,000 professionals in Metro Atlanta. www.remagazines.com.  

Lawrence offers sales, diversity and professional development programs, some which are approved for Continuing Education credits for real estate professionals.  Lawrence also serves as the Education Chair for the Women's Council of REALTORS Atlanta and Cobb Chapters.

"An Affirmation a Day Can Keep the Doctor Away (and Take You to the Bank!)" is from a new book in the works based on Coach Lawrence's revelations from consulting hundreds of entrepreneurs, as well as her research of scientific studies.  "When I began equipping clients with specific disciplines, an 'inside out' approach to success, I asked clients to accept these principles on faith alone- as I had.  Yet, after seeing somuch achievement in such a short amount of time, I was curious about the mind-body success connection," explains Lawrence, "So, I hit the books (and on-line articles and journals) again. My hope is that these findings will help encourage and empower even the most skeptical." 

Applying neuroscience, positive psychology and immunology data from well-known institutions like Emory,  Lawrence's  work on the mind-body -success connection helps explain how counting blessings, using affirmations and applying visualization techniques can actually promote motivation and follow-through to positive outcomes.

"There is an overwhelming amount of empirical and scientific data that supports the Judeo-Christian principles of wisdom and success- the kind of inspiration and motivational approaches I share with clients and groups to help them achieve worthwhile goals," says Lawrence.

REALinTouch and the Georgia Institute of Real Estate (GIRE) announce a ground-breaking educational course geared to busy Real Estate professionals, small business owners and students pursuing a Real Estate license.
 
GREAT EXPECTATIONS:  Creating and Refining Business Systems will be a dynamic 'Power Lunch' series offered 11:45 AM to 1 PM on every other Thursday from March 2nd through June 8th, 2006.  Anyone seeking to develop a focused blueprint or further refine their systems can register and attend the 4-part series.
 
Usually such courses are offered only in half-day or all-day formats which can be inconvenient to an agent's schedule and intrusive to business.  "Just about anyone can get away from the office at lunch," points out Sandy Lawrence, Coach and Principal for REALinTouch Coaching who wrote the program.
 
In addition to the easy to digest length, each of the four sessions will be offered twice from March 2 through June 8, 2006, so the course may be completed in any order:  
I.  Your Success Blueprint - Define a Unique 'Brand' and Market Niche; 
II.  It's Your Choice to Succeed - 'REAL SMART' Goals & Lead Generation Essentials; 
III.  Slim down Stacks, Firm-up Mentally, Increase Folder-Finding Flexibility, Strengthen Planning - An Organizing Make-Over; 
IV.  Spend Your Half A Million Well (525,600 minutes a year) - Time Management. 
 
In response to a need in the real estate community to increase professionalism and decrease the 'revolving door' mentality that plagues the industry, Rebecca Fletcher, Director with GIRE, submitted the course for 3 hours of continuing education approval. GIRE has been a leader in real estate education for over 50 years.
 
Lawrence wrote the course based on her work with hundreds of Real Estate professionals.  Lawrence's coaching program has been credited with helping agents boost their productivity by up to 200%, both in units closed and in increased sales volume, while maintaining work-life balance.  
 
In 2005, Georgia Real Estate Commission reported over 60,000 active licensees in the state.  Local professional boards reflect approximately 20,000 competing to make a living in the Metro Atlanta area alone.  "Yes, it's hard work, but great income and work-life balance can be achieved - if you have the right foundation:  a clearly defined vision as well as systems to leverage your unique strengths and to market yourself well," says Lawrence.  
 
"Whether a veteran or a rookie, everyone needs a compelling mission-vision and a solid plan to manage the multiple priorities of nurturing a business, maintaining balance, and servicing clients.  This session was designed to inspire entrepreneurs with renewed focus, to help them clarify a unique brand, and equip them to better meet strategic and meaningful objectives - both personal and professional - through their personal success blueprint," says Sandy Lawrence.
