Georgia Football Legend Eric Zeier visits Newnan Real Estate Office

Eric Zeier at ERA United Realty in Newnan GeorgiaEric Zeier, former University of Georgia and NFL starting quarterback, visited the ERA United Realty office in Newnan Georgia on Wednesday, October 8 2008. He delivered a motivational presentation to the agents and staff attending the regular weekly sales meeting.

Mr. Zeier spoke on the challenges of making it to the highest level in football, and demonstrated that the same principles of hard work, dedication and striving for improvement and excellence  required for a successful career in sports,  carried over into any business endeavor

Zeier went on to say that the businessperson that does not increase lead generation practices in today's market cannot expect to achieve the same results as in the past. Tougher times demand harder work and increased proactive effort! The message was well-received by all those in attendance.

While playing for Georgia, Zeier set 67 School records and 18 Southeastern conference records, including the conference record for most passing yards at 11,153, which has since been surpassed only by Peyton Manning and David Greene, another Georgia Bulldog.

Eric Zeier is now a regional vice president at Bank of America, and also does weekly broadcasts for the University of Georgia Bulldogs football team as a color commentator.

Hello again Richard-Sounds like you had a awesome day with that fellow as your speaker. When the negative voices start to creep in and the media is all doom and gloom. Just remember today and what Eric had to say. He's right you know. It takes all of those things to be successful and you are doing all those things. Nothing worth having comes without hard work. It is just harder now but I believe you are up for making it thru the challenge if you keep the faith.  Very nice photo. I think you should get a frame for that pic and either hang it on your wall or find a spot on your desk and when you're having a bad day. Look at that pic and remember what he said and believe it. I checked tonite when I got home tonite to see if you slipped another post in today and you had. When I started typing this I was the first to comment. I don't know if I'll still be the first when I go to submit it though. As you know I'm a bit long winded. Have a great evening and until next time. In the morning "RIGHT" "Keep blogging,keep smiling and most important KEEP THE FAITH." Good night my friend-This cold has kicked my butt and I'm headed to bed early for a change.

I've known Eric for about four years now, he worked for Homebanc then, and we attended a lot of events together. He also came by our office on a number of occasions, but this was the first time at ERA United realty for Eric! -Richard

Richard - that's what comes from all that positive thinking lately. How cool for you. Strangely, I was just watching the '92 game between the dawgs and the vols, but we won't remind him of that one.

Good Night Pat...

I hope that you feel better tomorrow! Eric's message today was very positive, but he pointed out that we had to work harder and do more. It was a great message.

Mike...

Well, he did beat Georgia Tech 4 years in a row! ;)

At least for a few hours! lol And just because I don't know how to spell my own name doesn't mean I'm stupid!

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Coweta Newnan Homes for Sale (Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers) over 5 years ago

Thanks for taking care of it.  I thought you may be tired, not stupid.

Richard,

Great picture of the two of you. Bet he had a great message for you and your team. Football has so many parallels to sales. :)

He's right on the money... if we rest on our laurels we'll be passed by.  We have to keep pushing and extending our reach.  We all know it, but it definitely never hurts to hear it again.   That's a great photo, btw.

Tichard, I remember Zeier. He was indeed a great quarterback @ Georgia. Lots of fun to watch. Not bad advice either. Good news is you are already doing those things he recommended. That had to make you swell a little.

Zeier was a great quarterback. I hope he's as good a motivational speaker.

What a great way to spend the day!! I'd trade our troubles for those in football right now though! :)

Mel...

Aw, now you're just being nice!

Steve...

He is a really inspiring speaker, and always welcome in our office!

Jesse...

Thanks. I told him the photo was for my blog, so I hope that he checks it out!

Bo...

I always enjoy hearing his "funny" football stories. But he tugs at the heart too!
