You never know what you’re going to experience during a typical day in the multifamily housing industry! You may have your plans all laid out on what you’re going to do today-only to have those plans fly out the window with one phone call, email or in-person visit. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed with all of the things you need to do accomplish in a day, don’t worry, you’re normal! (That’s why I started drinking after I got started in this industry…just kidding.)
I’m going to share with you some very simple things that you can do right now to help overcome overwhelm during your work day!
