When times change. Then so do you.

When times change. Then so do you.

I'm not talking about springing ahead or falling back. I talking about when the markets turn south and you need to look elsewhere for an income.

What, or where do you turn to?

There are some of us that leave the Real Estate business and never return. Others get a part time job just to get us through the hard times.

When is the decision reached? Is it after careful analysis of your own situation?

There are varying  factors with all of us, so when do you look for a "different line of work"?

Most of us are not "multi talented" to just jump into another profession. What then?

What do you do "when times change, and then you need to as well"?

Hi Rob, as you know "today is the day". I need to get with the "MGMT" and let them know what I want to do.

I feel "negotiations coming on". I like it simple and quick.

I will post tommorow about how it turns out.

Thank,

Clint McKie

It just means I get up one hour earlier or later as the time dictates

Hi James, That has not worked for me. How early do we need to get up to stem off the oncoming disappointment?

Good morning Clint.

When times are hard one must look "out of the box"...

Invest wisely, lower the overhead, find new markets...

Great advice Joshua, that's why I'm "looking as well".

Wish me luck.

Good luck to you in your negotiations. While sometimes more difficult than others, I have survived in the real estate business for several years, however, not without some thought of changing careers during those difficult times.

Hi Wayne, I want them to be short and "sweet" LOL

Thanks for the comment.

Hi John, I will still do home inspections and what ever comes in. I just don't want to be a 24 hour a day guy who has time for nothing. Inspections included.

I will still inspect no matter what.

Thanks for the confidence,

Clint - excellent question for this Monday morning.  My answer is that I learn to adapt, changing the way I do business, learning new things and seeking new niches.  There will always be business for those that dig in and CHANGE WITH THE CHANGES!
