Tammy Mazzocco is a successful real estate agent in Central Ohio, and she loves her work. She started out as a secretary to a nine-person commercial real estate group, and today she is one of the leading realtors in Ohio. It didn’t happen overnight either. Lasting success seldom does, but with Tammy, it was always a steady growth which brought her to where she is today.
She works in Franklin, Deleware, Licking, and Fairfield Counties in Ohio, selling residential properties. Tammy likes to say that her motto is not to take herself too seriously but to live without fear of failure, and don’t settle. In other words, if you have fears of failure, you will never get started.
Early in her career, Tammy Mazzocco was by her admission somewhat shy. So she took action and made it a point to start conversations and each time she tried it she got better at it. Conversations then took a more natural course, and things worked out fine.
In another instance. She says that she initially had some difficulty in asking prospective clients about their financial situation. So she borrowed some scripts from some of the more experienced agents and read them aloud to herself in private until she became comfortable with them.
This shows that when we run up against something personal that we feel we cannot handle, we can seek an answer to the problem and push through it. This answers so many things in life that we all run into, yet there is usually an easy answer if we look for it.
Tammy was asked if she had one habit as an entrepreneur that makes her productive. She answered that it is important to set meaningful goals and then break them down into actionable steps. The steps make it possible to proceed. Otherwise, most of us would never get started.
Tammy Mazzocco is a great example of putting action to her dreams, and that is how she went from being a secretary to a very successful businesswoman.
