I’m Grateful for my Clients
Week 1 in the Gratitude Challenge November 2019
As a business owner being grateful for clients is no small thing, but also pretty obvious.
If I don’t have buyers or sellers to work with, and to help them make some of the most important, and expensive, decisions in their lives…and life changing decisions…I can’t pay my bills (sorry, no trust fund here) and do the things I want and need to do personally and with family and friends.
But while having clients means having money, and financial stability, this is not about that at all.
One of the primary things I am grateful for with regard to my clients over the years are the numerous learning opportunities, such as finding alternative ways to solve problems, plus acquiring new information so I can be the best I can be.
When faced with problems to be solved in our business sometimes you get so focused on dealing with the issues, and the emotions, that only later do you realize that it was a good learning experience.
Oh, it might not have been a pleasant one, but it was learning nonetheless.
I’m grateful for the many opportunities over the years to better understand myself personally as a result of working with a wide range of buyers and sellers – the skills I have already or have developed, the things I do well, the developmental challenges (no, I do not view them as weaknesses) to overcome, gaining a better understanding of my hot buttons, improving at being patient and diplomatic, being more aware of my emotions and how they can impact behavior, and so much more.
I’m also thankful for my written and verbal communication skills and how these continue to improve over the years from working with many different clients, responding to and managing challenging situations, and dealing with varying personalities and all the emotions in the real estate business.
Positive feedback has been a good indicator that this is not just in my head, but communication that is appreciated by my buyers and sellers in many situations over the years.
Is it perfect?? Far from it, but I continue to work at my communication and do the best I can with the varying situations, people and methods (texting, Facetime, emailing, calls, in-person) we are confronted with in this business and in our world of technology.
