Tough it Out

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

I got an email from a friend from the north this morning, asking me if I was using the cold weather as an excuse to stay home by the fire!  (What does he know? He wears shorts in single-digit weather!)  I will say that I considered it.  After all, most school districts in the area closed and the roads had accidents all over them, but I didn't let that stop me.  The inspiration from a recent post came to mind.  Do I really want to take the day off and pay myself NOTHING????  Heck no! 

So as you brave the icy conditions (and some even more than others!) be careful.  Make wise decisions and stay home rather than put yourself and others in danger, but even then don't use it as an excuse to be "off!"  The beauty of our business is that we can work it anywhere!

I am home sick with strep throat wishing I could go to work! It is mild here, in the 60's and a bit drizzly. Want to wait one more day before getting back to routine.. I miss routine.

I had to stay home with the kids half the day (because they were out of school), then worked the other half- now am back home already!  It is easy to want to stay home on these cold days- for me. I am way less motivated this time of year, but need to suck it up and get to work!!!

Sharon, Love that portable office stuff. You don't even need to be in your town of business to do business. Stay safe.

Dr. Starks;

Your so right!  The phone or the Internet doesn't care what the temperature is outside.
