Half of September is in the books……make changes today to end the month in a great way!

’30 Days hath September….April June and November….¨ That’s right people – September is halfway gone!

Want to shake things up? Right now?
Before Friday of this week – do one of the following:
1. Completely empty your car out – from glove box to the trunk – the whole thing. Don’t forget the pockets on the back of the seats, the weird little holes in the back seat doors, and underneath the seats.
2. Go to your closet and get rid of 15 pieces of clothing. Literally pull them out of the closet, take them off the hangar, and take them to the car immediately. Then drive to a shelter, the Salvation Army, the Goodwill donation site, a church, or one of those
“Drop Off Clothes Here” bins in a parking lot and be done with them immediately. (DO NOT put them in a pile near the door for the next time you go out. You know who you are….lol) Here are some helpful links:
3. Go and volunteer at a local food bank, a homeless shelter, or a animal shelter. Here in Simi Valley, the Samaritan Center works tirelessly towards helping homeless people and families get back on their feet. http://thesamaritancenterofsimivalley.org/ The Food Pantry always needs help at the local food bank. http://www.foodpantries.org/ci/ca-simi_valley
The Ventura County Animal Shelter has a vibrant volunteer program as well. http://www.vcas.us/volunteer
So maybe you read this list of ideas and think to yourself, “How will this help me to sell more homes?” The reality of life is sometimes our minds are the biggest obstacle in our way to achieving success. We get so caught up in our own thoughts, our own problems, our own drama that our own thoughts interfere with building our business. One of the fastest ways to get out of your own head is to help others. It will refocus your energy, improve your outlook on your own life, and force you to follow your schedule.
On a practical note – if you want to make major changes to your online presence in an efficient, effective way – make sure you come to the Marathon Marketing Day at the Century 21 Hilltop Stearns office on September 24th from 9:00 until 3:00. The tools and structures covered work at any brokerage and with both real estate sales and vendors supporting REALTORS. You can either bring lunch or you can buy lunch from the Junkyard Cafe to support our Relay for Life team. I know it is a long day, but you will take a major leap ahead of where you are right now. This is open to agents from other offices and your best vendors as well. Bring your laptops. If you have an assistant – send your assistant. Make sure to RSVP so we can plan accordingly.
I look forward to seeing you there.
