“I never want to let my priorities become casualties.” — J’aime Nowak
Top producing real estate agent, superstar recruiter, successful broker, dynamic speaker, wife, mother: J’aime Nowak has achieved a lot in life, but what people might not know is she’s dealt with a lot of pain and challenges as well, from leaving her Rhode Island hometown with her family to build a new life in Arizona to the untimely passing of her husband when she was only 31. However, through it all, she’s maintained a positive attitude centered on one thing: Gratitude. In this episode, Brian Buffini interviews J’aime and delves into her journey, including the highs and the lows she’s faced along the way and her tips for surviving (and later thriving) when life hands you a curveball. You’ll learn why making a choice is an essential first step in the healing process, the best approach for turning around a struggling business and how setting a 15-minute meeting with yourself each morning, before everyone in the house wakes up, can set the tone for the entire day. By the end of the episode, you’ll be inspired, motivated to succeed and ready to express more gratitude in your life.
