“Make sure your actions align with your intentions.” – Mark Willis
We all want to be bigger and better versions of ourselves. The problem is sometimes life just happens and we get sidetracked. There are bills to take care of, family to support, and the list goes on. Despite the seemingly endless list of to do’s there’s this tiny little voice that remains and keeps on whispering “Hey, you are meant for something more. You are meant for greater things.”
And this is exactly what we’ll be discussing in this episode.
Our guest for today, Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty, Inc., the largest real estate franchise by agent count in North America, discusses how we as human beings or specifically as entrepreneurs, find and achieve our highest self.
Mark explains how clarity makes a huge difference in forging the life you want to live.
“A lot of people fail to have a clarity about what they want in life and with clarity, we have REAL power.” – Mark Willis

They say no man is an island, and this holds true to what Mark has shared in this episode today. Mark reiterates how helping others reach their highest self-has helped him reach his. He reminds us to give first to others before we expect them to give to us and that we always have to show a willingness to give unconditionally, one that doesn’t expect anything in return.
“Life is about serving other people and in order to get what you want; you need to serve other people before you serve yourself.” – Mark Willis
We’ll also learn how crucial it is as leaders, to talk in a manner as if we’ve already reached our goals as this drives the same vision into the hearts and minds of the people that we serve (our employees) and that we do it in a way where they feel the importance of the contribution that they are making.
We’ll also discover his secrets on how he ensures all his employees perform at the standard he expects and at the same time maintain good relationship with them.

Willis began his career with Keller Williams Realty in 1991 as the team leader of the Austin Southwest market center, where he quadrupled the office’s production over a five-year period.
