My name is Kail Walker from Omaha, Nebraska and I’m a Real Estate Agent, business owner, model, and fitness/fashion enthusiast.
Could you give us a little about your education background?
I graduated from college with a degree in Health and Human Performance where my aspirations originally were to own a gym and help people with their physical health and fitness goals. Since then, I had a calling to take a different route and get into Real Estate. I decided to leave the health and fitness industry and just three short months after beginning Real Estate classes, I became a licensed Realtor.
If you had one piece of advice to someone starting in Real Estate, what would it be?
My one piece of advice for someone just starting in Real Estate would be to understand that this is a business, not a job. It’s your business so it should be treated as so. It’s not an easy business to get into by any means, but it is a simple business and if you are willing to put in the time and work, you can be successful. That goes with anything in life though!
What is unique about your approach to real estate?
My approach to Real Estate differs from a lot of others out there. I like to take a low-pressure approach and instead of it being “who can I find that wants to buy or sell right now?”, my mindset is, “Who can I talk to today and build a relationship with so I can help them when they are ready?” Nobody likes to be sold anything, but everyone likes to buy. Have a low-pressure approach, build a relationship with them and let them come to you when they are ready. It has worked wonders for me so far in the game.
“I believe that to build my own empire, it’s important to differentiate myself from others, stand out, and truly have a desire to have an impact and help people live better .”
As an entrepreneur, what is your strategy to build your own empire?
It’s important to differentiate myself from others, stand out, and truly have a desire to have an impact and help people live better whether that be physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally or even financially.
How many hours a day do you work on average?
On average I work 55-60 hours a week so my days range anywhere from 8-14 hours a day.
Can you introduce riseOMA?
riseOMA (pronounced rise Omaha) is a business that my partners and I created to introduce a unique and fresh way to network in my local community. Success depends so much on your network. Not just who you know, but also who knows you. We wanted to create a networking experience that you really look forward to coming to again. A place where it’s not only entrepreneurs and business owners but it’s also for creatives like artists, musicians, models, photographers, influencers, etc., all in a fun, exciting environment. Your network is your net worth!

What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
These may not necessarily be skills, rather than just three things I believe it takes to be successful: Your work ethic, being able to listen and care for others, and your willingness to sacrifice for the things you want out of life.
