Navigating Business Challenges: Lessons from an Escape Room in Medellin

Last Friday my girlfriend took us to an escape room in Medellin Colombia. 

If you’ve ever been to one you will know that it’s hard as ever to solve things in 1 hour. Try doing it in a different language (Spanish) lol.

This was not an easy task. To say that I was a little useless trying to solve things in this escape room was an understatement. 

That said, once the host of the escape recognized that I spoke very little Spanish… She started giving me clues in English, which was super helpful. If you’ve never done an escape room I highly recommend it.

But as I sit here writing today I am thinking about the puzzle pieces that we put together in our businesses. 

Sometimes business can feel like an escape room.

Sometimes we are searching for ways to make things to work and it can feel super frustrating when things aren’t working.

I am brought back to how many frustrating moments that I have had in business over the last 3 years of rebranding our business to Sheridan St. 

I am brought back to how sometimes our ideas work and other times they fall flat on the ground.

Business can feel like an escape room where you are trying to reach a goal that feels so far away. That said, this is why hiring people to help you go farther is important. I couldn’t solve all the things in the escape room and I sure as heck can’t solve all things in business.

Once I started outsourcing things and trusting my team more with projects, that is when things started to click for me. 

This is part of the reason we have added so many new things to our system at Sheridan St. I have a desire to make things even more turnkey for the agents that come into our world.

Here are some things we have added in the last 90 days for Sheridan St. Clients:

An AI Chatbot using ChatGPT to respond in your tone and manner during hours the ISA isn’t working so that you always have someone responding within less than 3 minutes.

Random pop up call reviews so that we can help you have better conversations with the leads we send you. We grade our clients on tone, structure of the call and whether they used the script or not. This has helped team leads massively drive performance in their teams.

Bi-Weekly live sales training where we train, role-play and audit live transfer calls. This allows us to train on our 7 figure appointment playbook and ensure that everyone that comes into our ecosystem has an opportunity to level up their sales and communication skills. 

Bi-Weekly Paid Ads Mastermind where we strategize, build and monitor custom ad campaigns (Fb, Insta, YT etc) that you want to set up for your business.

Weekly 90 Minute Client Impact Sessions where we train on marketing tactics, how to get more buyers into agreements, listing presentations that convert, sales and communication tactics and more. We also have guest trainers like Sharran Srivatsaa coming in to train on all things marketing, leadership and sales… 

Even if you aren’t a Sheridan St. ISA clients are now officially opening this up to any agent that wants to level up their skill this year. We are looking for 10 agents that want to join our Sheridan St. Mastermind where you will have access to all of our training + our AI chatbot inside of our CRM.

DM me the word MASTERMIND on Instagram if you want more info.
