It’s almost SUMMER!
What comes to mind when you think about the Summer season?
Think for a moment. Do you have time to take a break and enjoy a vacation to your favorite hideaway? How about kayaking on the river, a camping trip, seclusion at a mountain cabin or Disneyworld? Ah…a vacation to Hawaii maybe?
EVERYONE needs a vacation every once in awhile and I did not realize just how much I needed one until we went to N.C. to see our grandson this year. It had been 8 years since we took a vacation! I believed my business could not run without me and that I needed to be in full control all the time. I ‘thought’ wrong because I came back with a new outlook on my business, life in general and even my marriage!
BALANCE IS KEY TO SUCCESS!!!
Think for another moment. While taking a couple of days to regroup, revitalize your life, spend time with your family or just to have some ‘me time’ you will need a backup plan so your business keeps running while you’re away. Do you have a trusted partner that will oversee your clients and let your clients know you will be out of town and introduce your trusted partner? How about your auto generated listings or newsletters set in place and everyone involved in your current transactions notified? WHAT IS YOUR PLAN?
