Imagine bobbing around in the ocean. Sounds ideal…. Floating around in the water allowing the tide to move you like a vessel through the water.
And whilst in this relaxed, chilled out, go with flow mindset you can just tread water.
Or a rip can take you out into deep and then bring you back and smash your body up against the rocks whilst sharks feast on your bloody remains.
This is how I view business.
Ok ✅ I am not a chilled bobber.
In business I have to have a map, a rudder to steer and protect.
Our agency may not be a big flash cruiser with hot people in bikinis taking selfies of themselves drinking veuve.
We may be in a little peddled kayak trying to avoid their wash but we know where we are going
My girls and I studied the map at the start of the year.
We knew where we wanted to go.
We knew we would have to peddle and paddle, and have little buckets scooping water to stay afloat.
We had bushfires and stayed open to help evacuees
Covid hit and we stayed open, big office, small amount of staff lots of sanitiser and cleaning.
We huddled up as a little family to weather the storm of 2020.
We had an office goal of how many sales we wanted to achieve.
We wanted to increase our market share.
We wanted to grow our rent roll.
The results are in.
We smashed our goal by 20% and we are off to celebrate.
Sold 94 properties and $59.5 million in real estate.
To reward this incredible bunch of girls who dug deep to get us through I will be taking away the map….
This Friday I am closing the office at lunchtime for the weekend.
They are going on a mystery weekend.
They have no idea where they are going or what they will be doing.
But they can trust that I will have a plan.
They are going to bob up and down in the water and relax.
Big cruiser boat ? ….. NEVER
I like them to stay humble and enjoy the simple things.
No rudder, no worries, no work.
Bikinis? Veuve? Maybe 🤔…..
