Tammy Mazzocco is smart and genuine. You will not find a more caring person when it comes to working with her clients. She sets aside all selfish motives such as how much commissions she will receive for sale, as she is too busy accommodating the needs and wishes of her clients. Because of this attitude she has, she can sell lots of real estate.
This is the real story that many people have the opportunity to excel by simply working hard and sticking with it, but we live in an age where many are walking around wanting a handout. Not so with Tammy Mazzocco, as she realized early on that working hard every day and staying with her passion for what she does is the secret to her success.
One of her traits that she likes to point to when asked how she does this every day is “Don’t take yourself so seriously, live without fear of failure, and don’t settle.” Another gem is that she will block out things that she doesn’t like to do, like cold calling prospects, for a certain time of day, then gets them done and moves on. That leaves the rest of the day for what she likes – working with people on appointments to show them houses.

Do not let anything fall between the cracks – that is what Adam Milstein would tell you. These and among other wise epithets are the things that have shaped him in a career in real estate and a life of philanthropy and love.
Who is Adam Milstein?

He is currently the managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties.
In an exclusive interview with Ideamensch, Adams Milstein opened up about the values that have shaped him so far. Top of these is the ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude that he has based his work ethics. When he wanted to start out, he realized that the people who gave him opportunities in life did not really appreciate what he had to offer them. He decided to go at it himself and became a sales agent. After just three successful years as a broker, he decided it was time to become an investor in real estate ad he has not looked back since.
Milstein denies there being any routine to the business of real estate, there is only what is possible. Business is a day to day activity, and while it is fulfilling, it requires a person to do more to be truly satisfied. Milstein derives his satisfaction from philanthropy. In fact, most of the values that have made him such a successful real estate investor have driven him in his works of philanthropy.

Kate Hudson, a prominent figure in the Hollywood scene, is also experiencing great success with her clothing business Fabletics. She recently participated in an on stage interview, at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit. She discussed the fast paced success of her business and the challenges she faces, both as a celebrity entrepreneur and how to keep the progressive momentum going for Fabletics.
Hudson has been in tuned and inspired by fashion most of her life, admitting that she always imagined herself being involved with the clothing industry on Pinterest in some way. She saw a large hole in the fitness apparel market place and immediately starting thinking of how she could fill it. Hudson’s clothing designs are part of an athleisure brand that allows fitness clothing to be functional as well as versatile. Her introduction of Fabletics hit the mark, and after only 3 years of operations, the organization is boasting a revenue rate of $250 million annually.
Hudson was excited that her products were met with so much enthusiasm, but since the pace took off so quickly, the stress of keeping up and managing effectively was extreme. Her tension of starting a business was further amplified by living in the spotlight as a notable actress on Twitter. She felt extra pressure to succeed and keep everything on point, making no perceivable mistakes that would be examined under the constant celebrity microscope. Yet, her status did serve a positive role, giving Fabletics more exposure than basic marketing could offer. She admits that only now, after 3 years, do they feel that they are keeping pace with their ever growing customer base.
Fabletics started as a subscription based model, harnessing e-commerce and social media to attract the modern day buyer. They have moved into offering retail, but find that the majority of their revenue still comes from the internet, which they fully embrace. A unique element of Fabletics is their wide range of designs and fits that can be worn for activities ranging from intense workouts to calm relaxation. The styles are routinely changing so that customers stay intrigued.
Fabletics core values are based on providing fashionable athleisure wear for anyone and everyone. They are continuing to invest their efforts in this idea by moving to provide plus size fitness and leisure wear. Hudson feels that all women should celebrate their bodies and have fun, sexy, comfortable, and versatile clothing to do that. Her instincts on what her customers want has been spot on for the last 3 years, and it appears that this new movement will lead to further progression of her brand and greater success as a business woman.
