Keep your Wood Pile fully stocked

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808


Some call it the pipeline, but we like to think of it as the wood pile. In order to stay warm all winter, you've got to stock pile wood all year long. When the colder days come, nothing beats knowing that you've got enough wood to help you keep warm all winter.

To keep our wood pile stocked, we never, ever stop prospecting. Even when business is booming as it has been these past few months, prospecting is still the foundation of all that we do. Every day, even if it's only for a few minutes, we contact leads and talk to them. 

This way, our wood pile is always full. 

Take some time today and add a few logs to your pile - you'll thank us for it when the days are cold.

Wayne and Jean, this is great advice for all of us.  We need to prospect daily in order to keep our futures warm and bright.

When things are going great you forget how it got that way sometimes.

Wayne and Jean, this is always good advice. One of the basic things that is often overlooked when busy.

Prospecting and keeping your ears and eyes wide open will ensure that the woodpile is stacking up.

So very true.  Never let your foot off the gas when it comes to prospecting--even if it might keep you awake an extra hour in the evening.  We cannot pick our weather, but if the wood pile is full (I like the analogy), we can always stay warm.

It's true, we need to use the slow winter months to build and prepare for when things pick back up again in March.
