"Relationships are the driver for me in everything that I do," says Molly McKinley. You may recognize her name as a former technology executive in the real estate space.
In fact, it was Molly's relationship with real estate professionals during her time as a tech executive that, in part, led her to start a company of her own, Intentionaliteas, an "intentional gifting platform" that helps agents "stay in flow" with current and past clients via automated gift giving.
Molly is the first guest in a new interview series, 24/seven with Bondilyn Jolly, that explores "the person behind the professional." In each episode, host and real estate technology entrepreneur Bondilyn Jolly delves into what makes each guest tick—and what inspiration agents and brokers can learn from them. The series is produced by 3sixtyfive, a creative marketing agency that serves real estate professionals. Each episode delivers content via podcast, video, written interview, and photography.
So what's Molly's secret to being remarkable at business? "Being thoughtful," she says in this episode. "We as human beings are just hardwired to connect with each other and that's the part that most people are trying to shortcut." But thoughtfulness takes time, and it isn't always easy, so she wondered how could she create thoughtfulness for people in their businesses so it's not just about technology, but "good, old-fashioned emotional intelligence."
Hear more about how Intentionaliteas helps real estate agents achieve just that, Molly's spiritual approach to life and work, her dreams, greatest fears, and hopes for the future in this episode of 24/seventhis episode of 24/seven.
