Today I bought a building | Marketing Eye
I coincidently was driving past the building when I noticed a real estate agent closing the gate. I was being a sticky beak so I drove up to the real estate and asked how much they wanted. He said he wasn't sure. I then asked what was the gauge. It was less than I imagined, so my head went into overdrive.
I didn't really think I would buy it because it wasn't good timing, but when is it ever good timing? I have spent my life waiting for good timing and it certainly has never done me favours. What I have realised is that you need to trust your gut instinct.
So, I rang my bank this morning and asked them what they thought. They asked me to tell them what my gut instinct was. I realised in that moment that it was wise to buy the property.
I am not a good negotiating so I brought along my internal accountants to do so on my behalf. It was amazing to watch them in action. They were phenomenal!
An hour later I walked away, the owner of my dream property. A place that my office would call home for the rest of time. It was such an exciting moment for everything because it means no more moving offices when a building owner decides to develop.
No more upheaval. I am relieved.
But best of all it means that I can invest in the space in which we work and make it beautiful. I am over the moon happy. Thank you universe for making this possible. This is the start of an amazing journey!
