Meet Angela Kristen Taylor Angela has over 20 years of experience in the real estate industry, more than half of which have been at the national and international levels. Angela is a real estate centric productivity and life coach, trainer, author, and public speaker, honing in on the true secret behind an agent's success: living a happy and healthy life. "I’m an anthropologist of the Real Estate industry and the people who live in it. Real Estate as an industry, as I’m sure you will agree, is a culture unto itself. Like any good and decent anthropologist, I have spent my career profoundly studying my culture of choice. I have lived within it, become friendly with the natives, worked with their tools, and have come to understand the psychology and behaviors behind their customs within the many different tribes. As with any anthropologist, I document my findings, speak about them in public and private forums, and teach those interested about the patterns of the Real Estate people. At times, those wishing to connect with the people, or even the people themselves, will come to me for guidance in the ways of Real Estate and I am always happy to share my findings and advise them. In doing so, I provide an enlightened view of the culture as a whole, lacking the bias of tribe affiliation, and offer understanding of the Real Estate archetype and impulse." Why Life Coaching? If you've been in real estate for any length of time, you already know, it's not just business coaching we need, it's help managing this crazy chaotic life full of responsibilities. It's figuring out how to juggle the house, the spouse, the kids, the buyers that want to see every house for sale in three different areas of town (all at night or on the weekends), making dinner every night ("McDonald's again?!"), grocery shopping, that one annoying seller who calls every single day, laundry, and OMG... have you LOOKED at your bedroom closet lately?? It's no wonder your brain can't stop thinking and ladies, when was the last time you had a decent pedicure?! No, balancing on one leg in the bathroom, painting over the chipped paint from 3 weeks ago doesn't count. Interested in stopping all the madness and finally getting your life back? Sounds like you're ready to Master Agent Life. What is Master Agent Life? Master Agent Life is designed to address, very specifically, the issues you face in living a Real Estate life. We are both coaching and leverage service providers. Master Agent Life coaching deals with the areas YOU struggle with. If you feel disorganized, messy, stressed-out, depressed, passionless, or mojo-deficient and like your life and business are getting out of control, you're in the right place. We not only can teach you to deal with the chaos of real estate life from a mental/emotional standpoint, we show you how those aspects can affect your productivity, then coach you into reaching your goals, and *bonus* we can also take all that work off of your shoulders! How Do I Know Angela is the Right Coach for Me? 2014 is Angela's 21st year in real estate. She has five kids, four dogs, a clean 5 bedroom house with an organized home office, home-schools all the children, practices yoga, meditates, eats a healthy diet, and yet still finds time to coach agents, manage a business, teach classes, write industry articles, have an amazing relationship with her husband and family, and do plenty of reading. Nothing clunks her on the head when she opens her closet door and her cars are clean too. "I do not have a housekeeper or a personal chef. I do have a system that works for those of us living in the real estate world."
