In this episode, I am going to talk to you about making the most of your summer. I don’t mean getting out in your boat, going on vacation, laying out in the sun, or swimming in your pool. I’m talking about making the most out of the opportunities that the summer provides you with as a real estate investor!
The summertime offers some unique opportunities for you as a real estate investor. You should be aware of these opportunities so you can make the most of them. The start of summer also signifies that the year is half over, and any goals that you have set for yourself should be halfway done at this point. It can be kind of a scary realization when you discover that half of the year is gone as it relates to your goals.
If you are not satisfied with the progress you have made up to this point, let me point out some characteristics of the summertime that may help you get yourself back in gear:
- nice weather
- longer days
- kids out of school
- general positive moods
Okay, that’s not a lot, but these are just a few that I came up with off the top of my head. I just want you to get motivated and really push yourself to accomplish all of the goals that you set this year. I know the same goes for me. I live in the Midwest, and longer days and good weather really make a big difference for me. It’s much easier to look at houses when I can see where I’m walking. Also, in a cold-weather state, the warm weather does generally put everyone in a better mood.
Whatever reasons you come up with, make sure that you get out there and make it happen! No one will do this business for you, at least not in the beginning before you have great systems and hire great people. But seriously, at the end of the day, you need to make it happen. Don’t look for reasons why you can’t; look for reasons why you can and will.
