Grab a cup or coffee or tea – however you swing!
Think of all the things in your life that you have been blessed with, there is always something trust me – God packs all of our bags, he would never leave you with NOTHING. Sometimes it takes us peeling back all the layers to get to that one thing that you have been so blessed to have in your life. It could be a person, a place, a gift of humor, a gift of writing, a gift of singing, a gift of just listening.
One of the most important thing to do when selling your home is to find a great agent to represent you. If you don’t have one already, then get recommendations from friends and interview different agents to find one who will be the best fit for you. A good listing agent should have a great marketing plan, experience, and deep knowledge of the area and market.
There’s no way to know for sure how long it will take for your home to sell – it could take a month, or years – and while it may seem crazy to start packing up your stuff before a sale occurs, it’s best to be prepared for any outcome.
Prospective buyers are going to want to step into your home and see a place they can visualize living in and making their own. The best way to do that is to create a blank slate. Keep it neat, keep it clean, reduce the amount of clutter you have on shelves and surfaces, and depersonalize as much as you can. The idea is to showcase your home without distracting from it, you want to showcase the focal points and function of each room of the home.
The last thing anyone wants to do before they sell their home is to dump a bunch of money into it for an extensive renovation; however, there are minor repairs and improvements that can be made to make a home look fresher for potential buyers.
Applying a coat of paint to walls and trim, or even touching up certain areas, can make a world of difference in the appearance of your home. It’s also a good idea to spruce up your front door, since that’s the first thing a buyer will see when they walk in.
Buyers want homes to be light and bright, so replace your light bulbs or even add a lamp or two to lighten it up. Also, when your home is being shown make sure all the lights are on and the blinds are open.
The bathrooms and kitchen tend to be a focal point in the homes, and buyers pay attention to whether or not they’ve been updated. Doing little things like re-grouting the tile on the bathroom floor, or caulking the shower and bathtub, can give a used bathroom a fresher look – even new faucets can make a difference.
You want to impress potential buyers as soon as they step onto the property or take a drive by, which means making the outside of your home look as appealing as possible. Make the extra effort to rake leaves, weed the garden, and mow the lawn. Clean and put out your outdoor furniture, and even consider adding some colorful plants to the front of the house.
Here is a link to sign up to become a donor if you’re not one yet ~ Donate Life
This is personal for me, I lost my younger brother John in 2016 from complications of kidney failure. He was on the list waiting for a kidney for a few years. He was a volunteer fire fighter and knew the importance of organ donation. He was an organ donor – when he passed the organs that could help others to have a brighter future was the legacy he left behind. John also donated his tissue for further studies of kidney failure, and I’m sure so that his children don’t have to travel down the same road of illness as he did. I miss him everyday, but I am comforted to know that his organ donation has saved lives.

Accountability (noun): the quality or state of being accountable; especially: an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s own actions
HAVE A COACH (SHARE THE STRESS)
It’s so true. A coach provides that accountability, that strategy, those pep-talks, the support that you need to press on and to keep you moving forward and pressing on when you are feeling tired or discouraged.
When you know you’re not alone you can always keep going. Not only does having a community raise you up to a new level of responsibility that will help you with consistency and follow-through, but it also provides a network for you to fall back on in moments when your spirits are down or you are tired of staying on that journey of entrepreneurship!
One of the most overlooked steps of successful accountability coaching is celebration . . . the secret is simple: celebrate more – pop more corks with your tribe – send handwritten cards or letters – celebrate with a small gift (I have most of the rocks my former pre-k students have given me as thank you gifts while spending time outdoors, the sentiment was always the same “Miss Cheryl, this is for you because I Love You”) small teacher celebration moments.
It goes without saying that your goals matter more than you know.People who are able to follow through on what they say they are going to do to, who are able to finish what they start, who are people who have a very clear vision into “why” what they are doing matters to them.
Clarity can push you forward to take more action, to help you “show up” and follow through more consistently and to dig-deep to find the courage to step outside of your comfort zone in order to reach your dreams.
We make our goals harder than they need to be. The truth is reaching a goal is less about doing big, drastic changes and more about doing small, daily tasks, taking ‘baby steps’ along the way. You don’t need to know all of the steps you need to take, you just need to take one step a day, every day, going towards what matters to you. Decide two things and you will have results: 1. Decide to be consistent, and 2. Decide to always show up. When you’re committed to consistency it doesn’t matter what people think about how and what you’re doing – it just matters that you show up and keep pressing forward.
It can be different for you this year. It has to be different for you, because this is your year if you decide it to be. But you need to prepare for the stumbling-stones that are going to be on your journey. You need to anticipate the challenges, and you can do that by making sure you have the right coach and a community of your tribe on your side.
