Monday Morning Coffee – Squirrel Wisdom

Squirrels are:

Always on the move!

On purpose – Diligent!

Great Climbers!

Always vigilant!

Know their limitations!



Always thinking ahead!

A couple of days ago, I felt a shift in the atmosphere . . . as if Fall is conspiring to make an early move in this year.

I then noticed a few squirrels already starting to gather and store food for the winter.

The Farmer’s Almanac says we’re in for a LONG and COLD winter.

Of course, we can all draw myriad analogies to all of the above.

Them Squirrels are SMART!

I figure there are a LOT of folks out there enjoying a busier than usual Summer and might not have put much thought into what the Fall and winter hold in terms of sales.

Should we follow some squirrel wisdom and begin gathering “food” to keep our business flowing through the LONG COLD winter?

For most businesses (Especially Real Estate Sales Professionals), this “Food” is in the form of Home Buyer and Seller “LEADS” . . . anyone and everyone out there who may be thinking of making a move any time within the next 6-12 months.

THIS is the MOST important activity for EVERY business NOW.

If you don’t believe me, find a nice bench in the park and sit for an hour or so and watch the squirrels in action.

Then GO!



Hope you have a GREAT week!
