5 Things I’m Thankful For In My Business
Happy Grasshopper has asked us to write about the 5 things we’re most thankful for that impact our business on a daily basis. It was hard to choose just 5 but, below are what I am most thankful for.
What I’m most thankful for are the people I work with regularly who play a big part in making my sales as smooth as possible. Whether it’s the title company I recommend, the lenders I know who work tirelessly to get my clients loans approved on time, or the handful of agents in the area who I have had the pleasure of working with in the past that are on top of their game. It's a small group and I have enough fingers to count them but, when you get a call from someone you know is great tow ork with and they have a buyer for one of your listings it puts a big smile on my face.
Second I’m thankful for ActiveRain. I have learned so much from the community and connected with so many wonderful people. The blogging is great for business and being able to have such a huge referral network is wonderful for my clients but, the relationships formed here are so much more than business related. I truly feel that I’ve made lifelong friends.
Third I’m thankful for referrals. Without all the referrals I receive my business wouldn’t be where it is today. There isn’t a time that I receive one that I don’t feel humbled and honored that my past clients trust me with their friends and family. It will never get old picking up the phone and hearing the voice on the other end say I was referred to you by…it instantly makes me smile.
Fourth I am thankful for the technology that allows me to conduct business from anywhere. I don’t miss the days of no docusign, no smartphone and no iPad. All play a huge part in my business and have made me more efficient for my clients. Add GPS into this list too J
Fifth I am thankful for my family. Without their support I wouldn’t be going on 9 years in the business. They are so flexible with when I might arrive or have to depart for holidays and visits knowing that sometimes I just have to take care of business. It’s a balancing act and I do my best to spend as much time with them as possible but, I do remember when I was first getting started that there were many times I could just stay for a night and then had to head back home for work. Their understanding and support has always kept me going.
