IAM1703 – CEO Runs a Tech-enabled Real Estate Brokerage
Podcast Interview with Tyler Forte
Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Tyler has a really awesome disruptive approach to the real estate industry. Hearing his story and how he always was entrepreneurial. One of the things that really stuck out was that entrepreneurs have the tendency to take every experience they have and use them for their next venture and the venture after that and after that… Tyler and his team asked “why” which is such a powerful question of why traditional industries can't be disrupted.

Tyler Forte Teaser 00:00
The first, and really the biggest mistake that we made starting this company was not being in the actual geographic area that we're launching in. So we're here in Nashville and for probably about the first six months of starting this company, I was living in New York where I'm from, my co-founders were in L.A. We were trying to tackle this thing just by hiring someone in the Nashville market to run our operations and that was just a huge failure.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I am CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we are repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics or as I like to call them, business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.
This month we are focused on technology. We're a technology company that does dot, dot, dot. Technology is no longer an afterthought or something that you might do and is actually a core part of your business. If you are a real estate investor, you're using it. If you're a financial firm. If you're a cleaning company, author, or speaker, you are using technology. If you are in any business, you are using technology, and if you're not, then you're probably going to be disrupted by an organization that is.
So this month we are going to look into purposing episodes that are around technology, whether that be firms or organizations that are actually using and investing in technology as a core part of their products and services or potentially those individuals that are using and leveraging CEO Hacks and CEO nuggets that center around technology and sharing ways that we can leverage it as well. Remember that you are a technology company that does dot, dot dot. Sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I am CEO podcast.
