In the latest episode, I had the pleasure of hosting successful entrepreneurs - Shannon Edwards, Christen Campbell, and Carlyn Menser - who shared their journey of merging separate real estate businesses to create a unified, thriving unit. This dynamic trio discussed their experiences and insights, providing valuable advice for fellow real estate professionals and entrepreneurs.

Highlights from the episode include:

- The value of collaboration and seeking advice from experienced professionals in the same industry.

- The process of merging businesses and the challenges and rewards it brings.
