I was thinking of lessons learned this week as well.  Some lessons are learned immediately.  Others become "light bulb" moments.  Still others are seen much later but it's wonderful when that spark is ignited.  I can't always identify the genesis of the lesson but I am aware when the magic comes to life.

Helping your Montana dreams take root

I learned that there are places in the country that don't do much work on weekends (in the summers - because people actually want to enjoy the summer with their families!).

And I learned that Montana doesn't require proof of insurance when registering a car.

And I learned that homemade eggplant parm tastes delicious out of doors.

I learned what a grouse looks like, and I learned that our new property has tons of wildlife.

I learned a lot more stuff. Fun week.

well hell, I find that hard to believe. No one does those out here at all. Most end up blowing off the homes & then the association complains.

I'm glad your marketing plan is working for you Will Hamm .  I was reminded this week that if I dont control the day, it will control me and that my to-do list truly makes or breaks my success.

Will,

How many of those calls were from people who asked you to stop hanging things on their doors?

But were the calls positive or filled with expletives about not wanting door hangars?  According to the feedback on our local NextDoor, homeowners detest these sorts of marketing activities.

 

For my learn this week, I did discover a limit as to how much crap I will tolerate from a client's abusive behavior.

That's awesome! We've never been very successful with door hangers, but we've also never launched a serious door hanger campaign.
