Most of us are so busy trying to keep our head above water that we aren't prepared for something like the massive flooding occuring in Texas and Louisiana.
I read a very sad, yet thought provoking post this morning on a Council of Residential Specialist's page on Facebook:
Alissa Engel Spears
Looking for some experience. I live in Rockport, Tx. My office has been destroyed during Harvey. For those who have been through devastation of their offices and towns before, how do I rebuild/react?
1. What are some Socia media posts that portray hope and leadership
2. How does a company stay afloat during this time?
3. How do I lead my agents to stay positive
4. What does my future look like?
Thanks for any advise you might be able to give.
I thought I was prepared for the unexpected by having my data backed up to the cloud, but my data is only a function of my business! What would happen to my listings and pending sales? Until insurance checks started being issued, no one would be out looking for replacement homes. All of my equipment would need to be replaced (Matterport Camera, Drone, computers, printers, etc.)
It could be any major disaster (flood, fire, tornado, earthquake, etc.). I thought I was prepared, but when I read this post and the responses so far, I feel like the Captain of the Titanic probably fetl before he set sail on the unsinkable sihp.
If I was busy trying to rebuild my home, how would I have time to rebuild my business? Are you prepared?
