Contribute to Your Community
Each week in our Tuesday office meetings, our Qualifying Broker, Beverly, asks one of our brokers to share “One Good Thing” with everyone. This week, broker Tanya Clokey chose to share with us how she and her family are working hard each day to give back to their community in any way they can. From finding volunteer projects to donating groceries to families in need, Tanya and her family have been working hard to spread positivity through genoristy. This last week, they participated in Giving Tuesday by donating to the Native American Relief Fund. While things are hard all around, it can make us all feel a bit better to lend a helping hand.
Try to take the time out of your day to give a call to the people who matter to you most. With video conferencing platforms like Zoom making a splash, it’s the ideal time to utilize the technology at our fingertips to stay connected to our friends and family that we can’t see in this difficult time. Check out this article on Everything You Need to Know About Zoom from OwlLabs.
While we’ve all been instructed to shelter-in-place, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t necessarily have to mean staying inside your house on your couch all day. In the great outdoors, it’s easy to find 6 ft of distance and a beautiful day as well! With spring on our doorstep, everyone is itching to fly the coop. Combat that feeling by stepping away from the screens and spending at least 15 minutes a day outside walking!
Around the office, we normally like to keep the mood light and bright by sharing comedy with each other. Whether it’s in the form of our Joke of the Week in our Weekly Newsletter, or a fun little real estate meme to share at the office meeting. To keep everyone laughing, we’d like to share this playlist of comedy that has had us rolling all week!
