Send Out Cards - Lexington KY - Greeting Cards Can Change Your Life

I'm always into re-inventing myself all the time. I take the time to make adjustments, move things around or throw out what doesn't work anymore.

I've been guilty of focusing upon the hard work instead of focusing on the love of the work. That had to change.

Focus on the love of your workWhile I was pondering this... 

I started taking the time to get back in touch with the people that are important to me by sending greeting cards.

When you get wrapped up in your work, you don't take time to "see the people".

Sure I show houses and go to meetings, but leisurely lunches and dinners for fun with friends usually get put on the back burner.

Somewhere along your flight path, opportunities materialize to make you more aware of where you are and what you should be doing.

It's been a busy time for me lately since I re-discovered being more true to who I am.

Back in December 2009, I was looking for a program to use for contact management. Up to then all the systems I had experimented with were boring to use and seemed mechanical. 

Clients don't respond to automated emails. 

Nor do they open e-cards because of viruses. Duh....I don't either!

Out of the blue, I fell into Send Out Cards after making a comment on a friend's Facebook page late one night.

Life as I knew it has changed forever. 

Using this one tool in my business changed everything! This has been snowballing like crazy now.

In two months time, I have just been focusing on the love of my work. No longer is it a pain to send out cards or stay in touch with clients.

Also, just because it's been noticed by the ones on the receiving end, I have now a large group of business professionals that want to do this too. Plus the new clients!

The referrals and connections that have happened since this started is amazing! Now it's a team of creative minds instead of just my mind.

This "think tank of people" has been fantastic for business. I have plenty closings scheduled in Lexington KY and lots of new clients looking at homes. I did say that last year was my best ever.

It's all happening because I am focusing on my love of my work. 

I know many of my subscribers have wondered where I have been.

There are only so many hours in the day. The blog was the last thing in my day I tried to get to... but couldn't.

My assistant and I have been working non-stop to keep up with all the new business this year. Now, I hope to post more again.

I have been writing... but it's been in Send Out Cards! LOL What a pleasure that is.

I guess great ideas and people come into our lives when we are ready.

Be aware of ideas that sudden cross your path, they may have been sent to you to use so you can focus on the love of your work too!
