Did you work on your real estate investing business last weekend? Want to know how to avoid having to work through another holiday, ever?
Most of us chose real estate investing for freedom to some degree or another so if you had to work through the Christmas holiday then you may not be getting the most out of your business as you could.
What did you gain by working last weekend? How many deals did you actually close in those 2 days and how much revenue did it produce? What would you have lost if you didn’t work? Or are you just now more burnt out and need a holiday more than ever and do not have any extra dollars in your pocket?
If you are really that averse to change then you don’t have to make any drastic changes in your real estate investing business. Simply by blocking out the time to take off, refusing to be dragged into work no matter how urgent it may appear to be at the time and by setting the right expectations with your colleagues and prospects you can gain the extra freedom you need. Don’t wait until the week before you want to get away to tell people. Let them know well in advance. If they want to cut a deal or have a closing it has to be done early.
However, if you are really ready to take your real estate investing to the next level and you want income to keep on rolling in 365 days a year without you having to work 365 days then there are some simple fixes you can make.
Hiring a personal assistant or two who won’t be taking off the same holidays as you is a great start. This will keep your phones being answered, your emails being responded to and even paperwork moving while you are spending priceless quality time with those you love and taking a well deserved break.
However, you can go even further than that by investing in your real estate education and developing superior systems that will take you out of the day to day operations altogether, giving you all the freedom you want, even if that is to work on growing your business during the holidays.
