Beth Butler, Former Compass Florida President "Be a Student of the Business” on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #126
Beth Butler shares her advice over 30 years in the business. She is someone I have known for well over 15 years. She is truly one of the most accomplished female leaders in our industry and not only a dear friend of mine but also a business partner in a venture we began several years ago called, "Feather the Nest" which is an online platform targeted at millennials to help them use social media and their sphere of influence as a way to crowdfund for their downpayment and dream of home ownership. The amount of tactical advice Beth shares is invaluable to some entering the business or a veteran wanting to learn something new from a dynamic mentor.
