What I Learned in 2010

Good article.  What I learned in 2010 is that I did not spend my money wisely.  Internet advertising took a lot of money with no results.  Hopefully, I am connect with a company that will produce clients who are ready to sell.  Personal touches throughout the year are important, and getting everyone's email so that I can market through the Internet is a huge cost savings.

Here it is, the final day of 2010.  It's time to be reflective and think of what worked this past year, what didn't work, and what I want to do differently in 2011.  Here's a recap of what I learned, both good and bad, in 2010:

  1. Being a professional color consultant is lots of fun!!!
  2. Flying squirrels love to party after midnight -- especially in my attic!  Here's a shot of Zack with Caliber Pest Solutions holding (dead) flying squirrel #8.Zack with flying squirrell #8
  3. Gaining weight is much easier than losing weight.  (Okay, I already knew that.)
  4. If you eat too much chocolate, you will gain weight.
  5. You can do Zumba videos all day long, but if you eat too much chocolate, you will gain weight.
  6. Home staging still works, but the home must be priced right to sell.
  7. L'oreal #5 "medium brown" is MUCH DARKER than L'oreal #6 "light brown."
  8. Marketing is expensive.
  9. Just because you build it, they won't necessarily come.
  10. Transitioning my business from Stage, Show & Sell Home Staging Co. to Patsy Overton Interiors was a heck of a lot of work, but well worth the effort.

Here's to learning from my mistakes and having a banner year in 2011.  Happy New Year to all of my AR friends!
