2017 Success - Planning + Perseverance = Success (Part 2)

Planning for Success

Planning + Perseverance = Success (Part 2)

A quick three part series summed up from three great quotes to help motivate one to complete 2016 on a high note...and, kick off 2017 on the right foot.  The second quote is on Perseverance, and is provided by B.C. Forbes:

"When the worms are scarce, what does a hen do?  Does she stop scratching?  She does not.  She scratches all the harder.  A lot of businessmen have been showing less sense than a hen since orders became scarce.  They have laid off salesmen; they have stopped or reduced their advertising, they have simply resigned themselves to inaction and, of course, to pessimism.  If a hen knows enough to scratch all the harder when the worms are scarce, surely businessmen…ought to have gumption enough to scratch all the harder for business."


Make your plan, and plan to do it!

Another great quote Lisa Von Domek  . This season is just that to me, a normal part of our business, a season, the season of scratching.

Lisa I say AMEN to that.  When business get tougher we need to work harder not give up as is the tendency of some.

Good morning Lisa.  I started in this business on April 8th, 2008.  The market was in a dive, I never gave up and now I'm reaping the rewards.  I just kept on scratching and digging deeper and it works

It is winter here. The ground is frozen. Worms are difficult to find. But if we dig deep enough we can find them. Thank you, Lisa, for an inspiring reminder.
