Our changes have been many in the past year and serve as building blocks for this year and years to come.
On a personal level, we were going to make some changes to our lower walk out level...which is where Magic, our soon to be 21 year old cat, resides. The age difference with Dini didn't make them friends so they each have their own floor. We decided that the disruption caused by remodeling would be too much disruption for him and moved on to updating the master bedroom with plans made last year and multiple contractors scheduled to minimize our own disruption from ceiling lights to refacing the fireplace, flooring, painting, window treatments ...furnishings, artwork etc. It is now the sanctuary we love...pictures as time permits.
Our major business change was to join EXP Realty LLC, our only regret is not having done it sooner. In addition to opening up multiple streams of income, it has also increased our discipline in education...both in getting and giving. The very pervasive "coming from contribution" and mega technology has us doing more time blocking than ever before to both get and give in classes and individual sessions which has been rewarding both personally and professionally. Education not only with agents but also with segments of our sphere in the kinds of services we offer to them and in some cases to their clients. The small group and one on one sessions are more time intensive both in preparation and execution however the rewards outweigh the additional time and effort. There are so many different ways an agent can choose to experience this brokerage, having what feels like freedom as well as prosperity has had an energizing effect on many parts of our lives. Some people may have had "less than sterling" introductions to this cloud based brokerage....happy to have you visit a class...with no obligation. ...you may well surprise yourself ! You don't have to dislike where you are to find you like something else better...Open minds are a wonderful thing.
Another huge thing we would encourage everyone to do on a personal level is to make sure you have the kind of medical care you deserve. Our annual physical appointment ...or attempt at making one...to be told it would be in 6 months...caused us to seek out another physician. That too could be its own post ! After considerable research we now have the family doctor who is not from the "health I don't care" school and makes time for personal phone calls and appointments as needed. We feel so lucky to have found a physician not caught up in the "business" of health care and makes the real care and practice a priority. IF you have not had a physical...do not have a doctor you can depend on ...make that a priority...make YOU a priority. If one person who reads this makes an appointment ...uncovers a condition...treats something before it becomes a problem...this change suggestion will more than have served its purpose. The cough, the assumed heartburn, the tingle or numbness you choose to ignore can be symptoms of much bigger problems...go to the highest and best source...not the "clinic of the internet" ...find a good physician.
Back to class and meetings....and wishing you all the positive changes that bring you the lives you so richly deserve. Sally & David Hanson - Broker Associates, EXP Realty LLC.
