Reflection and making plans

January is the time for reflection.It’s time for looking back at my marketing plan, seeing what worked, what didn’t and making plans for moving forward. It’s the time of year when there is time to contemplate any course corrections and set them in motion. I reviewed, I read articles, I made plans and I started implementing those plans in real estate, dog training and in life. I was pumped. Then I got stupid………..

If you are a friend of mine then you already know that I had a run in with a table saw.I’ll spare you the account so lets just say I wasn’t being careful enough and now my poor hand is suffering. You can’t call me stubby but stupid fits. I should have paid more attention and been more present.

It’s things like this that really knock the wind out of your sails. I was motivated and inspired.I’m trying to get that back. So let me try and reflect, once again, on the goals I had set before I underwent “unscheduled elective surgery”.

My client base is mostly in the dog world. I plan to assist them a bit more. I plan to constantly be on the look out for “dog” properties, preview them and share them with my friends. If I can find a home that has training space, kennel space or grooming space, there is someone out there looking for it. I may not have the property listed, but I know where the buyers are. I’m also an artist so the same applies to studio space.

I changed the look of my Website, Blog and Facebook page so they are more consistent and do a better job of saying who I am.

I am working to enhance and update my internet presence

I am always looking for new and better ways to advertise my listings

For my dogs, I plan to work with them on a more regular basis and volunteer more of my time. It’s my friends in the dog world who have helped my business grow and I want to give back that favor.

Most of all, I’m trying to be more present in my everyday interactions. The world is a beautiful place if we just pay attention

I hope everyone is enjoying their new year. Peace to you!
