All ships rise on a rising tide!

Categories: Articles

Did you ever hear the saying All ships rise on a rising tide?  Well guess what?  All ships get beached if the tide goes out and you haven’t made plans to move to deeper water.  The decision to move to deeper water doesn’t come from instinct.  Instinct may tell you that moving to deeper water could cause you to drown.  It’s the education and experience that tells you that if you don’t move to deeper water, you will be mired in the sand.

Mired in the sand!  Isn’t that where the Commercial Real Estate market is now?  If you listen to the “Media” or the “Nay Sayers”,  you might just batten down the hatches and wait for the tide to roll in…..or you could do something about it.

So let me introduce to you some tools that will help you navigate your way to success.

Now that our economy has dodged the second great depression, we all can appreciate the few dollars we have left in our pockets…..but what exactly does a dollar buy?

For one dollar, you can get a 1/3 of a Tall Latte at Starbucks,  a 1/3 of a gallon of gas, a cheeseburger at McDonalds, a bottle of water, or some air for your tires.  Pretty sad when you think about the value of those things and what little satisfaction you get out of them.

Now let’s talk about what you can get for a dollar when you become a member of CID.

  • Education on Commercial Business Development
  • Weekly Networking Meetings to promote your listings
  • Seminars
  • Contact with leaders of the community
  • Social Networking events
  • Leads for opportunities to sell your properties


This is just a sample of what less than a dollar week buys you with a membership in the CID. Just think, 96 cents a week to promote your properties, educate yourself, and the opportunity to make more money.  Less than a dollar a week!  I bet you put that much change in the console of your car.


So the next time you have a dollar in your pocket, take it out and invest it in yourself.  You will appreciate the knowledge and experience to navigate your career into safer waters.
