I will work for food

By
Home Stager with CQ HOME STAGING

Today, I would like to express my gratitud to all of those who decided to join me in this "I WILL WORK FOR FOOD" campaign from many different states.  Tons of people has shown interest in helping others and I have to confess: "I LOVE THE RIPPLE EFFECT" we  still have a lot of time ahead of us to make a difference and the more the merrier of course.  For those of you who hadn't read my my blog before, please take a couple of minutes to find out about this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.

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( curb appeal consultation, interior design, room planning and color 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 live 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 (money or actual food) 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!

Hi Christian--again, thank you for this idea.  It has been well received here and I love the fact that the Maui Food Bank is benefiting--which means many more people in Maui County are guaranteed to have fresh food and holiday meals.
