DRIVE: The One Essential Quality Needed When Hiring
Well, there’s nothing I love better than to be proved wrong when it means unfathomable success for someone I know. It’s even sweeter when it’s someone I care about.
Fast forward 18 months. This KID is jet setting and selling something he is amazingly passionate about. He now has his own practice, just signed up 120 new agents, has a status car, a penthouse apartment in Miami, and several others in other major metros across the nation to house his people and get them started.
What sets Daniel apart from the rest? It all boils down to one word…DRIVE. Well, that and a praying mother and not in that order. Daniel is relentless, a bulldog. He doesn’t stop. I swear he eats glass for breakfast and roars like the Hulk (not really, he’s actually pretty sweet). In fact, Daniel risked and worked tirelessly (while social distancing) all through the height of Covid-19. What drove him was his unrelenting need to make sure vulnerable people that needed protection for their families had coverage.
In conclusion, this kind of drive (and passion about what it is that drives you) is the one quality I look for above all else when hiring. Full stop. A candidate can have all the desire in the world, but if they don’t desire to do the absolute best work they are capable of, no matter what that work may be, then wait until you find someone that’s a Daniel.
