Cows Do Not Give Milk.
Anyone that has grown up on a small dairy farm knows that a sincere effort is necessary for every day success. Waking up 365 days a year, in any weather, getting dressed well before dawn, heading to the barn, harnessing the cows, placing the bucket and massaging the teats to get milk.
Not only that, but ensuring they:
- get an adequate supply of clean water
- are fed well with hay, alfalfa, corn and grain
- remain healthy with regular vet check ups
- have room for grazing - grasses are preferred
- safely are contained behind property fence lines
The same determined ethic is required for real estate success. No one will take charge, go out, bring business back to you or give you a part of theirs. Why would they? You must work for it, if that's a true end goal.
Lack of effort can be devastating for a dairy farmer who gets lax on daily procedures and worse for the cows that need to be properly tended. A business can also fail quickly when not managed, nurtured or cared for.
"Cows don't give milk; you have to work for it."
