070 Finding Success in 5 Minutes a Day: An Interview with Karen Briscoe – Part 1

In this episode, Christina Martini and Karen Briscoe discuss: 

  • How Karen got into residential real estate and has made a fantastic career out of it. 
  • Navigating the emotional quotient. 
  • Characteristics and skills that have brought her success and bring others success in business. 
  • The development of 5 Minute Success and the implementation of the methodology. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Recognize the emotional quotient and don’t take it personally. Any change, positive or negative, can be a challenge. 
  • To say you don’t have time, is saying you don’t want to. 
  • You feed your body, but you also need to feed your mind and soul. 
  • Commit to do it now, not when you think you have time in the future. 


“The benefit to doing small, mini-habits is that, by doing a small amount, you can, actually, have more of an impact.” —  Karen Briscoe
