Touching Base

By
Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    I know that it has been a zillion or so weeks since I have been active on ActiveRain and I feel that it has been for a good reason. I realized that I was stuck in a rut and because we are creatures of habit, I had to find out what good habits were moving me forward and what habits were keeping me stuck where I am/was. So, a few months ago, I made the committed, conscious decision to engage in and get the benefits of professional, personal coaching. Yes, the investment in myself was substantial, however, I realized that this investment would pale in comparison to the financial gain I would receive because of it.
    Time is like money - in fact, it is money. Like everyone else on this planet, I have but 24 precious hours and I have to spend it wisely. I had to make decisions on where and how to delegate my hours and due to the huge amounts of “me work” that is required, I had to make sacrifices. My involvement here was one of them. I have made the decision to periodically visit and touch base with my AR Peeps.
    Not only am I spending hours every day listening to audios, watching videos, writing with both hands, visioneering, and working on me, I am improving and making the inspection business grow and prosper. I am also launching an e-commerce business with the goal of having it operational by the end of the month. Yes, I do have a lot on my plate and, like the Micky D’s tag, “I’M loving it!!!” I refuse to let an old man occupy this body. I am doing Like Hill suggested, “Write down your chief aim in life, and never stop until you have savored the sweet taste of success.” Okay, so I engaged in some creative licensing . . . You get my drift.

Hey it has been awhile and now we know. Congrats on a wise decision and much future success! One question, will all this new energy be focused on TeamCHI? I remember your name is Micheal but would not know it otherwise.

Good morning Michael,

A step back and visualize what is going on has to be done occasionally.

Happy to hear the coach is helping and keep that plate full.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Good morning TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc. ,

So good to hear what you have been up to! Sometimes steeping back and taking a hard look at where you are and where you want to be is a good thing! I've often thought if I was just missing your posts and should have checked on you. I've been swamped all year so did some prioritizing myself to keep sane! Good to read a post from you..keep us updated.

Good for you, Michael.  Yes, time is money indeed, and there really is a point of diminshing returns on here.

I'm in process of launching/doing more online stuff, too.  My participation has been much lower on here, too.

We should touch base/trade ideas soon.

You may want to check out my new marketing website called FloorItIntoHighGear.com.  It's very new and I need to add more content (and actually create a real home page soon).  But, it has some good articles on getting more repeat/referral business, how to start a new wordpress site and how to build a marketing plan.

I knew you were focused on your business and setting new goals. Good for you and glad that things are going well and you are moving in a positive direction. Do stop by every now and then. This place can be habitual and though it has some merits, it is a distraction to what really is important, our personal lives and our businesses.
