Maybe It's Time To Have A Rooster In Your Office

RoosterOK, the guys probably aren't as hip to this home decorating tip as the lady REALTORS, Moms, or Stagers, but let me make this suggestion out there to you all,

Maybe It's Time To Have A Rooster In Your Office.

All right, Obe Wan Kenobe, where are you going with this one, cause I am clueless? It all starts back in European lore. You're supposed to keep a rooster in your kitchen to bring you good luck and prosperity. Many women in decorating their kitchens even have two roosters. How do I know these things? I pay attention.

That aside, it seems if you are going to set up a Realtor or business office in your house, and times like we are having are tough,

                YOU NEED AN EDGE.

Seems like tomorrow morning it is time to move that bird to where your desk is. Your fortune will turn and you'll have ME to thank for it. All the extra money you'll be making going forward in 2009 will be because of this small change. Send all the excess money you don't know what to do with to ME. Tens and twenties are fine.

You say you are not the believing in luck type when it comes to the housing industry.

What about those sellers and placing those statues in the front yard? Those statues of St. Joseph buried in the yard has got to be a centuries old tradition used to get houses sold. You can even order them on the web as kits.

So don't laugh at my moving the rooster idea. If you have any of your own lucky ideas that you think might work like a rabbit's foot in your pocket or a four leaf clover please share. But in the end as we all know preparation (meaning hard work) coupled with opportunity AND putting yourself in the path of opportunity usually will give you the best chance at luck. And somehow isn't it strange, the harder you work, the luckier you get? (even without the rooster).

I subscribe to the philosophy that the harder (and smarter) I work, the luckier I get.  So much so, it's my tag line!  "The harder I work the luckier you get!"

Very nice rooster. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it out...If all the Realtors went out and bought a rooster each, we may stimulate economy better than the Fed Govt. At least there wouldn't be any pork in our purchases.

Ok, I will move my one rooster to my desk. Then I'm going to buy mini roosters for all my listings and put them in the seller's kitchens and then Gary, I will let you know when your UPS package is on the way. :)
