Response Participates in Building a Home with Habitat for Humanity

 

Come rain or shine, on July 31, 2019, the Habitat for Humanity service project was a fantastic experience! Response volunteers were met by a Habitat for Humanity project coordinator, who shared how the charity works and who also shared the story of the family that will be moving into the home when it is completed. Licensed contractors provided hands-on instruction of the skills to be used on the project, and despite the rain, everyone diligently worked to fulfill their tasks. At the end of the day, many of the volunteers remained passed their time commitments to put away tools and clean up the site.

Your Key to the Future – Becoming Part of the Response Team

Your Key to the Future – Becoming Part of the Response Team

You may have been told from an early age that your future is up to you, and yes, that is true.  But the future can be an even brighter place when you learn the importance of teamwork and how Response provides keys for success.  Let’s start by focusing on two entities.  The first entity is you.  You are the captain of your own destiny.  The other entity is your backup team, and that is where Response can play such an important role.

To understand the importance of the relationship between yourself and Response, consider the account of Charles Plumb, a United States fighter pilot in Vietnam.  He had completed 75 combat missions by the time he was shot down.  Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy hands, where he spent six years in a Vietnamese prison.  After being released years later, a man come up to him and said, “You’re Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk.  You were shot down!”

Plumb was confused and asked how the man knew about that and the man replied, “I packed your parachute.”  Then he continued, “I guess it worked.”  Plumb assured him it had and said, “If your chute hadn’t worked, I wouldn’t be here today.”

Plumb thought a lot about the man who held the fate of someone he did not even know in his hands.  He kept pondering how many times he might have seen the guy and not even said anything because he was a fighter pilot and the stranger was a sailor.

In today’s real estate investment world, you are the pilot, but you have people you may not know who are supporting you and insuring that you have the ability to succeed.  They are in essence packing your parachute and they are the members of your Response Team.

Ask yourself why this teamwork is so important.  Andrew Carnegie was responsible for a major change in the industrial world of today.  He pointed out the reason why teamwork in business is such an important ingredient when he said, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision, the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives.  It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”  A great team doesn’t happen by coincidence.  Instead, a well-functioning team requires work from all team members as well as open communication and a clear vision toward an achievable result.

In real estate this teamwork concept is extremely important for both short and long-term positive results.  There are five important reasons why teamwork with Response helps develop successful real estate entrepreneurs.

  1. It helps develop a single purpose. You truly are the driving force for your real estate success, but when you involve the Response team, you learn to focus on specific, achievable goals—and you have help!
  2. It helps develop multiple options. The Response Team backs you up with a complete library full of training, tools, and resources that allow you to choose multiple ways of achieving real estate success.
  3. It helps develop efficiency. There is no reason for you to learn from your mistakes alone.  The Response Team gives you the opportunity to learn from the mistakes and successes of others.  It is a way to shorten your path to success.
  4. It helps develop new learning opportunities. With the educational resources available to you as part of the Response Team, you can experience success in multiple ways.
  5. It helps develop overall success. This is your opportunity to become a successful real estate entrepreneur.

It’s critical that you involve Response and make your team as strong as possible.  As the leader of your team, you can insure that your personal team is as strong as possible by following five teamwork rules.

  • Focus on personal objectives. The Response Team is part of your team.  Your personal real estate objectives or goals are the overall objective.  Focus your efforts on those personal goals.
  • Visualize the role of both Response and yourself as equal participants. Don’t try and do everything yourself.  Take the time to see what you need to do and how Response can help you. Seeing it first in your mind will help insure that you succeed.
  • Open communication with Response. The Response Team is at your disposal.  Don’t be afraid to contact them when you have questions or need help.
  • Create achievable goals. The Response Team can help you achieve success, but you have to be clear what your goals are.  When you can describe those goals simply, then the other members of your team can help you achieve them.
  • Balance problems with successes. You will encounter problems and obstacles from time to time.  It is important to let your Response Team know what the problems are, but you should also let them know of your successes.

Here at Response, we firmly believe that real estate success can best be achieved with teamwork.  My goal, as the Director of Real Estate Education at Response, is to provide the tools and training necessary for real estate success.  Working together, we can unlock your future.

I am Amazing Because | Scholarships

I am Amazing Because | Scholarships

Response is proud to be a scholarship sponsor to graduating Seniors at Timpanogos, Pleasant Grove, Orem, and Mountain View High Schools. The “I am Amazing Because…” Scholarship has been awarded to members of PTSA, NHS, DECA, FBLA, and a club of the schools choice. Over the last 3 years Response has been able to give 29 amazing students a $500 scholarship to the school of their choice. These students have used this scholarship to help them attend BYU, U of U, UVU, USU, SUU and Snow College. This most recent round of scholarships were given to four deserving students.

The “I am Amazing Because…” scholarship application is a 30 – 45 second video finishing the sentence “I am amazing because…”. We expect students to be creative in their videos and over the last 3 years we’ve been continually surprised at the quality of applications we have received. Many of these students have accomplished amazing things such as starting community service programs that have helped thousands, school athletics achievements, and great academic excellence. At Response we strive to be involved in positive community outreach and we look forward to continuing to serve our community.

Letter from Feeding America

Hi to my friends at RMG,

Hope you are well !  I wanted to extend my thanks for your support and share an update – this is the work you make possible!  Thank you!

Because of your dedication to Feeding America, families are receiving the nourishing meals they need during the cold winter months. At the close of 2018, your support helped us fight hunger among seniors, college students, children and people recovering from natural disasters—including the recent wildfires in California and hurricanes across the Southeast. Children like Richard, whose story is included in the Winter 2018-2019 Impact Report, were able to move from hungry to hopeful because of you.

As of this writing, the federal government reached an agreement to reopen for three weeks. However, as a result of the five-week shutdown, households across the country have been forced to make impossible choices between paying bills and buying food. Food banks and food pantries are witnessing increased needs in their communities, and in response they are sourcing more food, hosting special food distributions, extending their operating hours and helping federal workers apply for assistance programs. The shutdown has also highlighted the key role that dedicated partners like you play in helping us rapidly respond to people in need. For all you do to fight hunger, thank you.

As you read the report, please remember that your support makes a meaningful difference. Feeding America offers relief, energy and hope to millions of people each week, and it’s all because of your generous gifts. If you have questions about the programs your donations help fund, please reach out to me at any time. It would be my pleasure to share the multiple ways you make a difference for people struggling with hunger.

Best wishes always,

Stacey O’Malley
Director of Development

 

Food Drive for Tabitha’s Way Food Pantry

Food Drive for Tabitha’s Way Food Pantry

Tabitha’s Way provides food and supplies to an average of 5,000 individuals monthly.

Food Drive

https://player.vimeo.com/video/305595077

On December 7, 2018, Response participated in a food drive for Tabitha’s Way, and donated 2,978 pounds of food!

Tabitha’s Way got its start when God put it on Wendy’s heart that help was needed for the less fortunate in Utah County’s south valley. After much prayer and fasting, Wendy decided to quit her successful career in Telecommunications and start Tabitha’s Way.

Tabitha’s initially started in a small space at 200 North 37 West in Spanish Fork. After a little more than a year, Tabitha’s moved to its current location at 140 North Main Street.

Today, Tabitha’s provides food and supplies to an average of 5,000 individuals monthly. We recognize that the ability to provide these services through the support of the community and by countless businesses.

Tori B., Food Drive Coordinator, Tabitha’s Way, reports:

“We are very grateful for all of the donations from Response and will be using them to help the less fortunate here in Utah.”

Tabitha’s way is just one of many organizations where Response volunteers for. See a list of others here.
