On Labor Day




At times I catch myself thinking/saying “where is everybody going?”.  The idea of a “typical” 8-to-5 job has never been so typical for me.  

 

If we are fortunate we find what “works” best for each of us.  However you spend this day or any day may it be fulfilling.

Morning Michael.

I did the 8-5 for 29 years.  Now, I work about 1-2 hours each day, 7 days a week.

Michael, real estate is definitely not a 9 to 5 job, but could not imagine doing anything else!

We either love what we do for work or learn to love it, haha.  If we can't learn to love it, then we better move on to something else.

Joan Cox - but most of us have done other things so it's not impossible.

Brian England - are you pitching a new reality show:  Real Life Love It or List It?

Hi Michael Jacobs - I spent my day showing properties for a couple from South Carolina. It felt good to finally do my job!

Since I don't get to celebrate holidays, yesterday gave me a lift! I hope you're day was good and that life is treating you well.

I did truly take the day off this Labor Day Michael Jacobs .  It was a cold day up here even by ND standards but that made it perfect for the pyromaniac side of me and my fire pit .
