Charfen Institute does an outstanding job of teaching real estate agents how to remain relevant and grow their commissions in a challenging market.

Alex Charfen, CEO of the Charfen Institute, announced today that the company’s lineup of speakers for its July 15-18, 2012, Breakthrough Conference in Las Vegas will include self-discipline strategist Rory Vaden, New York Times bestselling author of “Take the Stairs” and co-founder of Southwestern Consulting.

In its inaugural year, Charfen Institute’s Breakthrough Conference presents an unprecedented networking and production-boosting opportunity for real estate agents. For the first time ever, it will bring together Real Estate's STAR POWER® Stars, Certified Distressed Property Experts® (CDPE), Certified Investor Agent Specialists® (CIAS), and other real estate professionals, all of whom are among the top-producing agents in the industry and on the front lines of the housing market recovery.

“In his book, ‘Take the Stairs,’ Rory convincingly and definitively takes on the topic of self-discipline and how it is the single most important factor to your success,” said Charfen. “I’m thrilled he’ll be able to share his insights with Breakthrough Conference attendees, who I have no doubt will benefit by incorporating his teachings into both their business and personal lives.”

In addition to his presentation at Breakthrough 2012, Vaden has shared his compelling "Take the Stairs" message on the same stage as John Maxwell, David Allen, Bill Clinton, Keith Ferrazzi and he's done special programs for both Zig Ziglar, and for Dave Ramsey's companies. He is also the co-founder of a multi-million dollar international training company, Southwestern Consulting.

“Charfen Institute does an outstanding job of teaching real estate agents how to remain relevant and grow their commissions in a challenging market,” said Vaden. “I look forward to complementing their training through the core principles I write about in ‘Take the Stairs.’ Considering the majority of agents are small-business owners or independent contractors, self-discipline is critically important to their success.”
