Would you like to work yourself out of a job? Listen as Brad with his guest Jennifer Stoops shares how her boss, John Bradford owner of Park Avenue Properties, did just that. John set the stage for Jennifer to take over as his replacement so she could take the reins while he pursued other ventures and promoted her from a property manager to Executive Vice President.

Brad and Jennifer discuss what she will speak about at the Property Management Mastermind Conference in March, and the challenges she faced getting her boss to trust her enough to let her take the reins of the company. They also chat about having a contingency set up in your business so that if something happens to you and you are incapacitated, someone else can step in.

Jennifer shares how important it is to make sure to have your accounting team secure when you have someone to step in to run your company. They also discuss education, getting the necessary designations, and the need to keep up with your KPI’s, so you know what is going on in your company.

Do you feel like your name has become a noun? Listen in as Jennifer shares why she feels that way about her name, why having someone assist you is necessary, and how not asking for help when you are overwhelmed can be a detriment to your job. 

These are all subjects that Jennifer will touch on at her seminar during the Property Management Mastermind Conference next month in Las Vegas. If you are planning on going, great, you just got a good overview of her presentation, if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, don’t hesitate they are getting scarce. You don’t want to miss the information that will blow your mind at the conference.
