The Chicken Count

Bob Kille Acuspect Home Inspection It’s the new year and already I’m counting my chickens before their hatched. You see, today is my day to put together the report binders for the comming year. The first thing I do is to figure out what each binder is worth given the average price of a home inspection and then as I’m putting them together the chicken count starts up in my head and even tho its supposed to be bad luck, I can’t stop.

But seeing as last year and the year before were banner years and the same ritual took place I’m start’n to think that having a positive outlook is working for me. Some would argue that the set number of binders made up on this day would limit my belief system as to how much more is out there.

Not true I’d argue, as in the closing days of 2005 I landed a quality control contract for the new year with one of larger custom home builders in my neck of the woods and no binders required. Just a quick summary nailed to the wall of the garage and I’m out’a there.

I guess the point of this post is to suggest that you stay open to other avenues of growth. Try to get another pillar under your inspection bussiness so that a downturn in one aspect is softened by strength in another.

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket and your chicken count just might be higher than you thought possible. Happy New Year!
