3 Things YOU Can Do Now to Move Your Business Forward

Create a rigid routine.  And stick to it!

Setting a routine is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure you remain focused and successful.  Just because our “normal” day is no longer normal, it’s no excuse.  When you routinize, disturbances give you less trouble. They’re boxed out—by the order and clarity you built.  We need routine now more than ever. Make the necessary adjustments. Then stick to your routine!

Add some letters to your name.

Learn what it takes to get your SRES, SRS, ABR or a host of designations.    A great place to start is this NAR Website.  Explore all the various accreditations and the requirements.  With some free time on your hands, time is well spent learning.


Set up 3 meetings next week with prospective clients using Zoom.  Share what the market is doing right now and what it’s going to do when this is over.  Let them know this is NOT the same as 2008. Trouble figuring out the whole Zoom thing…I got you!  I will be hosting a Zoom for Dummies class on Tuesday morning at 10:30.
