Ambition is infectious. The sight of it imbues others with extra confidence. That is the Moeen Ali effect.
His cricket tangibly uplifts England. When he's involved - batting or bowling - the players have an extra spring in their step; their efforts are loaded with expectation; opponents visibly wilt. But natural talent is not enough. England need to play smarter cricket too. That's what this one-day international tour of Sri Lanka is about.
This section taken from the BBC website about the England cricketer Moeen Ali sums up how I want to go about my business. I want to be able to be this infectious ambition.
Picture 2 estate agents. One that works for an employer, clocks off at five, gets paid at the end of every month whether they sell your home or not. The other works for them self, can be contacted in the phone from 8am to 8pm, only earns if they sell your home. Which wpuld you choose?
If you could add to this an enthusiasm for their work, an understanding of marketing beyond a traditional estate agent and beng a professional photographer.
Plus they are someone who can convey all of this when sat in your home at the time of market appraisal.
Hopefully, it's a no-brainier, because that estate agent is me!
