And The New Year’s Resolution is…


Around about this time of year most begin to make resolutions.  I think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something grander in the NEW year.  However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving them! I for one have been guilty of it. How about you?


There’s a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift.


Before I share the book details, here is my TWO-PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!


Part one: The Guarantee!

Move up to anyone of our listings, and we will Guarantee the Sale of Your Home*  


Part two: The Give Back!

Just like last year, we are on a mission to raise $6000.00 for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell.  JDRF does awesome work in helping people living with Type 1 Diabetes.

 

Many don’t know though that JDRF is non-profit, so they depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world class care and keep costs for families to a minimum.  So when you or anyone you know does business with is, not only do we deliver on our award-winning service, you can rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well.   

 

If you or anyone you know is considering selling, give me a call or pass along my number.  Thank you!! My number is 403-207-1748.


The book I mentioned is The Success Principles (How To Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be) by Jack Canfield


This book should be permanently on your reading list. A couple of chapters I recommend you read included:

  • Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life
  • Practice Persistence
  • Clean up Your Messes and Your Incompletes
  • Face What Isn’t Working
  • Just Say No!


If you read these chapters only, you’ll feel 10 times better than if you hadn’t — trust me!


Happy New Year!!!
