When you can grow a business by 400% in three short years, you know a thing or two about starting a new business. EXIT Southeast Regional Owner Kenny Lynn has years of business experience and shares his best business advice as he helps put EXIT on the map in Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee for the game-changing real estate company.
“I’ve been starting and growing businesses for years. When working with my EXIT Regional Co-owner Stacy Strobl in the mortgage industry, we immediately recognized in EXIT a unique opportunity for incredible long-term growth with the company’s revolutionary three dimensional concept of taking listings, making sales and sponsoring agents,” Lynn explains. “As with any industry, it is about retaining that growth through support, training and mentoring to help everyone succeed.”
Lynn shares some of his best business advice and some of the keys to EXIT Southeast’s growth and success in this Q&A:
What is your best advice for new business owners?
Work on your business, not in it. You can’t let fear dictate your progress. It will slow you down. How are you going to grow your business if you are doing the day-to-day minutia? I always suggest to business people to find good administrative support. It is key. In the real estate industry, this person helps agents by taking away the paperwork which bogs down their ability to sell. Find support with someone who excels with detail so you can get out and grow your business!
How Do You Support And Retain Growth?
For over two decades, EXIT Realty has been in the business of retaining what we are building by supporting and mentoring. This has been an important element for EXIT Southeast for the past three years.
I like to tell franchise owners, I’ll be your wingman and you never leave your wingman. We work individually with each person providing business advice, mentoring and training. My goal is to help people succeed and never let you fail.
How Important Is Training For A Business Owner?
Mentoring and training are a top priority and something we do custom to the person and the level at which they are operating. It grows exponentially with any company when the top leaders are well-trained and equipped. In turn, the owners then train the agents and the result is a strong organization.
In addition, we have broker/owner training, are bringing in EXIT’s top technology expert for fall sessions and support our international convention, which takes place this October. I strongly encourage business owners to seek additional training and education. We have seen a huge result for folks attending our annual convention and have seen production increase afterwards at 20%. You can’t stand still in this busy real estate market. And, right now, due to market demands, we need smart, producing agents throughout our entire region.
