Ep. 2 The Power of Goal Setting with Kory Franks and Ryan Becherer
Wow!  Our guests this week are an awesome follow-up to last week's episode. Ryan Becherer and Kory Franks are both high-producing, superstar real estate agents on The Jason Whittle All-Pro Team at RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks.  These two give a fresh look and great insight on setting goals, as well as specific action steps and how to have accountability.  It’s worth the listen! Does it really matter if you write your goals down? or have a vision board? How does friendly competition and camaraderie play into motivation for reaching goals? Kaylen, Ryan and Kory give great answers to these questions.  It’s obvious these guys have done some goal setting and achieving. I love the advice they give at the end. I think this can apply to ALL of us. You can connect with Kory Franks at, 573-298-1605 fb @koryfranks . You can connect with Ryan Becherer at, or 618-304-7818.

Ep. 1 Start with a Win with Adam Contos
It's a new year at RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks and a new season for Grow, Thrive, Inspire Podcast.  We are so excited to share this first episode of season 4!  Kaylen Banks and Jeff Krantz have an upbeat and informative conversation with our guest Adam Cantos.  Adam was a previous deputy sheriff, SWAT team leader, and police officer, and served in the U.S. Military.  He now serves as CEO of real estate giant RE/MAX Holdings and Motto Mortgage. Author of his new book, Start with a Win, Tools and Lessons to Create Personal and Business Success, Adam brings wisdom and insight for being a leader in any profession. One of the many valuable discussions in this episode is when Adam, Jeff, and Kaylen break down the difference between Curiosity and Judgement and how this can make a difference in our personal and professional life.  Adam references Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Appreciate People, and reminds us how small acts of kindness can go a long way.  He says, “Share some love.  It costs you nothing, and you never run out of it.” In the business of real estate, things can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful.  Tune in to find out what Adam shares about Colonel John Boyd’s OODA Loop.  This is a great tool to have in our toolbox. A highlight is when Kaylen references Chapter 3 of Adam’s book.  He explains who or what ‘the Beast’ is he refers to and tells us how we can have a party with it! Adam and Jeff give some key points at the end of the episode on how we can reset for 2022 and think positive!  Thank you Adam for coming on the show, for sharing your knowledge and insight that can help us all “Start with a Win!”  Connect with Adam Cantos: Connect with Jeff Krantz: Ig: @krantzandassociates fb: @krantzandassociatesRE/MAXlakeoftheozarks
