Work Hard, Play Harder is one of my favorite mantras. I love working hard because it is the fuel that allows me to play harder with my family and pursue those hobbies and passions that allow me to live a fully charged life!
This past weekend, I spent four days with my dad, brothers and brother-in-law’s in San Diego, CA. We enjoyed lots of fun in the sun and good laughter. I was filled with gratitude to break away from the everyday hustle and recharge the batteries.
On the airplane ride home Sunday night, I shifted my mind to prepare for the week and months ahead. I was able to review my 2019 goals and plan how I can show up with incredible energy and enthusiasm for my family, friends and clients.
One of my goals in building a successful commercial real estate appraisal is to also show up for my family by being fully present and help them maximize all they are capable of. Playing hard provides new fuel to run a business and deliver high quality work.
Commercial real estate appraisals require writing and weaving the story of the property into a report that allows the client to understand the value or values that are being provided. Through continuous education, analyzing market data and speaking with market participants, the story becomes well supported and credible values are established. Challenging property types, changing market conditions and steady report deadlines create demands on the appraiser to constantly be learning, growing and improving. Thankfully, utilizing the latest in appraisal report writing technology and market research tools allows our firm, Simonson Appraisals to deliver a product to the client that satisfies their needs.
I’m excited to come back from a long weekend invigorated and revitalized to Work Hard and prepare for the next opportunity to Play Harder!
