Do You Ever Stop??

Happy Friday.

Do you ever stop? You get up in the morning, have your coffee, check your email, of course check out "AR" and see what new blogs you need to bookmark (actually I love this part of the day). Then you get your kids off to school (after giving them a check for something or other) feed the dog, clean up your house, and get ready for your first appointment. Then you hit that appointment right on time, after that you are going to the office for just a "couple of hours". By the way, you need to stop for gas too (gosh I hate those prices right now)!!!

Then you go on broker preview, come back to prepare your paperwork for the next day's presentation, and then you have a computer program issue. After an hour on the phone with tech support, you get your paperwork prepared and you are set to go for your next appointment.

Now it is roughly 7:30 pm, and you have just gotten home and just a few more things you need to do. You need to email some photos to a prospect that you spoke to, set up an appointment for tomorrow, and prepare your contracts. Now it is 8:00 pm and you still have time to  communicate with my fellow AR buddies.

Spend some family time and do it all over again tomorrow!!!!

What a great business and I love it . . .

I never did stop for gas today - better go tomorrow after my morning appointment.

I wish my fellow Active Rainer's a great and productive weekend!!
