Dear Members and Friends,
Upon retiring yesterday evening, after a long work week, I mused that I would awaken to a new Age of Enlightenment. While this dreamed Age didn’t quite materialize, I have been enjoying my morning coffee while reflecting on the days passed and collecting my thoughts to share with you.
We have recently seen increased efforts to relax restrictions and begin the process of re-opening economies here and abroad. In these trials, we are lacking clear guidance from medical experts, and the risks of re-opening are being seen around the world. I am hoping that this is a two-step forward, one-step backward moment in time, where we will emerge stronger and more united, with new and better solutions for leadership, health care, industry, and international relations.
Let’s have a look at each of these topics:
My general sentiment this beautiful Sunday morning is this – by joining together and embracing our shared existence, the opportunities to heal our planet and explore new worlds will accelerate like never before.
As for the current state of the economy and in particular, the real estate industry, we are being buffeted by extreme winds of change. Stressful? You bet. But with change comes opportunity, and for those who are savvy, informed, and confident, the potential for success is unlimited. A new age is coming, and I can’t wait.
