No flagging over the weekend nor today. We had left word on Strategic's on-call voicemail that we wouldn't be available today, so no surprise. We did that because I had a meeting this afternoon about a new business opportunity. Tony Dupres, the real estate agent friend of Mike's who sold us our house here in Payson, has invited me to take on a Property Manager position for him and his partner. They have been developing a property management business for the last couple of years and it has gotten to the point where they need one or more full time property managers to handle the load. It is strictly a commission based position so it will start off small, but has a lot of potential. Someday they may even be able to franchise their unique property management model nationwide. So, starting maybe tomorrow or Wednesday, I'll run up to his office in Pleasant Grove and start learning what to do. The goal is that within six months I'll be handling 150 properties and making a pretty good pay. The nice thing about it is that every "sale" generates recurring income every month for as long as the property is under management.
I drove past the Geneva Road construction site where we've been flagging and they had flaggers out there on my way up about 3:00 but they were gone when I came back a little before 5:00 so they got off earlier than we've been getting off. Maybe because of a threatening storm that Mom and I ran into on the way home. It is windy and cold and blowing snow and sleet, but not yielding much accumulation. It was up to around 50 this afternoon and is still a bit above freezing now (7:00pm). The wind has been wreaking havoc with the electricity. We haven't lost power for any long period of time but have taken quick hits that knocked out the computer and the clocks several times this evening.
Guess I'll wrap this up before we take another power hit and I lose what I've written.
