Happy New Year, everyone. I write this on the first day of January, 2013. The month of January is named after the Greek god Janus, who had the distinction of having one face that looked forward and one face that looked backwards. January is a month when we find ourselves doing some of both.
If you have not done so, take some time to look back on 2012. What goals did you accomplish and what goals did you falter on? What lessons did you learn in 2012 that can help you in 2013?
Once you have spent some time looking back, set your eyes ahead to the future. What goals of your life do you want to accomplish in 2013? What can you do to improve yourself, your business, and your family in this new year?
If you are a real estate investor, I encourage you in these early days of January to begin formulating a plan on your business for 2013. If you are specifically a rehabber, now is the time to begin looking for property to rehab whether your exit strategy will be to rent or to fix and sell. Spring is the number one season during the year when people look for property. With house sales improving, now is the time to get busy.
I wish a wonderful 2013 for each of you. - Randy Wall, Lora Lee Properties
