I will work for Food

By
Home Stager with CQ HOME STAGING

Many of you already read this post before, but I want to continue re-posting it to make sure as many people possible get a change to join me in this cause...

As a Home Stager I make a priority of helping the realtors help their clients, and as a result I help myself by growing my business.  But this week with the holidays approaching and getting the fuzzy feelings that always come at the end of the year, I feel like expanding my mission beyond the obvious.

This time of the year, and until the end of December, I want to work for food!!!  I really want to help more, give more, bring more happiness where I can, and see people's faces go bright with joy. 

I was seating in front of the fireplace drinking a cup of tea, just relaxing after a day of hard work and a tension headache that had me in a very edgy mood.  And for a minute I realized that I had received a lot this year, of course I had the trials like everyone else, but that was the key note for me "Like everyone else"  and I knew that not everyone else can seat in front of their fireplace and enjoy a cup of warm tea.  And I said to myself, "I need to give something more". This is what makes me be in business every day, it is the nature of what I do, understanding the client’s needs and give them the opportunity to achieve their goal of transacting their home faster, with the biggest possible return. And for the agents, I always want to get those "not so pretty houses" to show their best while in the market, and help the real estate agents build a better relationship with their clients, by letting them know that from their professional position, they are willing to do everything in their power to sell that house!

I always work for some monetary gain, like the rest of us, but I want to expand my mission to a greater cause, so I thought that this month and till the end of December I will work for food, I will provide any realtor with a professional home staging consultation in exchange for a generous donation to the local food bank (at least 5 meals).  I live in Utah and I will be donating to the Utah food bank, but for all of you that leave far away, we can also do this long distance if you will.  I'll be more than happy to give you a consultation via e-mail and you can take the donation to your local food bank.

I believe in Karma, I believe there's more than money that makes us successful, I believe we can make a huge difference right where we are, exactly how we are today. 

Thank you for reading, Best wishes and much Success!

What a beautiful thing you are doing!  I saw the post that Peggy Chirico wrote mentioning you and I wanted to stop by and say HI!  If you really want to get more attention for this post then put it in some groups (you are allowed up to 5).  I would suggest Stage It Forward for one.

Hi Christian--welcome to the Rain.  I am reading you post because of Karen's blog introducing you.  I love your idea.  I am just writing a post about the Maui Food Bank and since this month is the special holiday drive to stock the food bank I am going to extend a similar offer to my Realtor clients.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Great blog and wishing you much success here on ActiveRain.  I'm sure you'll find, like I have, there are so many great people here and so much to learn.  Welcome and happy blogging.
