Friday Special: Mike Duley joins Jason and Joey on 'The Grind'

This week our host Mike Duley, CEO and Co-founder of The Duley Group is a guest on 'The Grind' Podcast with Joey Torkildson and Jason Harmon. We discuss late-life career changes, sparsity mindset vs abundance mindset, and the importance of thinking BIG! For many years, Duley enjoyed a successful career in sales and marketing before deciding to move into real estate. With encouragement from family and friends, Mike established The Duley Group and has not looked back. The Duley Group has since become one of the fastest growing leading real estate teams in Northwest Arkansas. The concept of 'Big Thinking' is a prevalent theme on The Grind. In real estate, but also in life, the boys agree that small thinking does not benefit anyone, and that growth is dependent on opening one's mind, pushing oneself to take risks and more importantly, taking action. So let's embrace fear, pain, problems, and what we like to call...the suck. Welcome to the grind!. The challenges, collectively referred to as The Grind, are the price you pay for personal growth and success. Get involved, follow Duley Noted on: https://www.facebook.com/TheDuleyNoted/
