Getting Down to the Wire

Well, it's getting down to the wire. I'm very close to having all my homes filled. Though people say this is the hardest time of the year to find buyers, it can be done - it's not impossible. One thing I've learned is that much of this business is depedent on me - my skills and my talents. It's very hard to teach someone the skills I have learned as an investor and salesperson. Though I work with the park managers with leads for both buyers and sellers, it's up to me to sell these people.

To be honest, this isn't a business that happens over night. Having a decade of sales experience and years of investing experience definitely helps to accelerate the process. I just have to keep doing the same thing over and over and over again - buying and filling these homes.

I know this will all pay off someday. It is a lot of work - nothing is easy. With each deal, I learn something new and take each experience to heart. I've made a lot of mistakes and have encountered many obstacles though it has made me wiser and stronger. In the end, I know it will all be worth it.
