The Tuesday Edition with Patricia Feager

 

 

My trip to the Tulip Farm in Pilot Point this past weekend planted seeds about the beauty of planting a bulb in August and waiting until Spring to get the results. This one to my left is a Tulip I picked that just simply makes me happy because of the colors. This one looks so innocent to me, like the birth of spring, a season of renewal, or the beginning of something new.

 

As my mind often travels, I had an interrupted thought Monday evening about the power of something new that develops over time, and the labels put on brands because of the year a brand was developed. 

 

What triggered the thoughts in my mind was sudden recall about the year HGTV and House Hunters started on TV. After doing my research, HGTV began on December 30, 1994 and House Hunters on October 7, 1999. Although those dates seem so long ago, it was the beginning of the Millennial generation born in between 1981 and 1996. And then I had a eureka moment, the results of that generation are the Millennials today who are now or will be buying houses. They are also the Millennials today who are beginning to or who have already achieved great success in business, self-made millionaires, or entrepreneurs. And what year did "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire begin? It premiered in August 1999.

 

Who isn't amazed at the beauty of something newly born and wonders what effect this newborn will take later on in life. To think, I was part of the generation watching I Love Lucy while today's Millennials were already being groomed and branded into the ideas of home buying, home improvements, learning while watching TV shows like House Hunters since the time they were born. TV does have an impact on viewers. The seeds are planted in young minds and spans over the spectrum of time into life's continuous expectations passed down from one generation to the next. I now understand why so many Millenials and people who aren't educated in the business of real estate think HGTV and House Hunters is the way our business is run. 

 

I leave you with this thought. Mark Zuckerberg, born May 14, 1984 tops the richest Millennials. I checked out other Millennials and there is a common thread - technology. Now go back to the quote at the top of this post and realize that Warren Buffett was born on 8/30/1930. His quote was spot on.That gives me hope, how about you? --- Patricia Feager

I Love Lucy was hysterical. I remember where they were working in a chocolate factory's assembly line, eating all the chocolate. Too funny.

Beautiful photo as always. Thank you for sharing the photo and your thoughts.

Have a great day!

Patricia I thought I had commented yesterday on this blog.  I wonder why it did not post.  Need to see if it happened to any of the other comments I made.

George Souto - I wrote a post for Monday, Tuesday, and today.

However, I recently went over to a post that I thought I wrote a comment on and it wasn't there. Perhaps, the gremlins are back?

I met her in person at a mini hook-up with Bob Gilbert, his wife Yolanda and her at Don Giovanni's for a lunch several months ago. If you never have been to DG, my treat, see you there this coming Monday. Your turn to travel, cheers cvc

aHello Patricia - I am not one to dwell(too long at least) on age but it makes sense that there are some people "out there" who don't know life before HGTV or HouseHunters.  Now, that's something to think about...

Michael Jacobs - And that's the truth!!! Pay attention. Listen. You will see Millenials have no recollection or knowledge of many of the things we take for granted. I guess when you live as long as you and I we can safely say, we have acquired wisdom!

I can't recall ever hearing Warren Buffet speak when I didn't agree with him - to this day! Love the quote but, boy, you gave me an ah-ha moment, Patricia. Our millennials grew up 'learning' how to buy, build and restore houses...right out of the womb!

Why would they need our opinions/expertise?! That actually gives me food for thought as to how I present instruction/education to future millennial clients! THANK YOU!

Thank you.

I just find it facinating - this makes perfect sense because you know our generation did tend to use TVs as occasional babysitters when we worked from home. Little ones are sponges!

Thank YOU for the ah-ha moment!

Great article.  I never thought about the connection between tv shows and how it influences buying by different age groups.  The Buffet quote is important!  That relates to your 'niche' I believe!  Thanks, Patricia!

I'm pretty sure my mom has NEVER watched a single show on HGTV and I'd be willing to bet the same in true of MY Millenial daughter though she's not normal for a person her age.  I made her grow up pretty fast, she's been an adult since she was 3. LOL.  Now I wish I had more tulips planted.  

My favorite line you typed here was "who isn't amazed at something newly born"  Birth .... the green of spring, a new baby born to a close family friend, Cooper who is my first grand.... all keeping me very hopeful amid the crazy world we are living in.
