As we begin to close down our boating season here in the Midwest, it is also a nice time to reflect on all the fun that was had this past spring and summer. Pulling the boats out, taking down the piers, closing down cottages, repairing items, packing things, weatherproofing... it's a ritual and it must be done properly and with a lot of care. Because essentially at the same time, we are getting ready for the coming season as well. Always preparing ahead of time is the key. If everything is done well next year will be wonderfully easy and very fulfilling.
It's Just like Real Estate don't you think? You need to be always preparing, adjusting, fixing, tweaking, investing in the new, all for the future. Your clients are relying on it. If you do not, then it's not going to be pretty. Just like some sellers, you can either be in the market or you can be chasing the market.
What are you doing to prepare and ensure for a successful next year?
