Here in the United States we are celebrating the Labor Day Holiday this coming Monday. For many this holiday has become the last big fling of the summer. Its passing marks the end of summer (Actually, Summer doesn’t end until the autumnal equinox) and the return to school for many kids.
For adults it has become the time for that one last barbecue with family and friends. The meaning of the holiday has become lost over time by many of us. I went in search of the meaning of labor day and found that the US Department of Labor has posted some information on the origins of the holiday that is worth a few minutes of your time: http://www.dol.gov/opa/aboutdol/laborday.htm
But, for us in the real estate industry, this holiday typically marks the end of the summer sales doldrums and the beginnings of the last push of the year. We KNOW that we have to get busy and make some sales before Thanksgiving rolls around.
So, in that spirit, I want ask you to ask yourselves these questions: What am I going to do differently starting on Tuesday, September 6th, 2011? And how about this question: What have I been doing with my time? And this one: Who is my ideal client, what is their pain point around real estate, what do I have that can fix their pain and how can I get my message to them?
Take some time to answer these questions and I am certain that you will make more sales between now and the Christmas holiday season. If you are having trouble with these and need some direction, drop me an email. I can help.
Happy Labor Day all!
