It’s getting late, and I haven’t had a chance to get much done today, but I wanted to give you a quick tip.
Building relationships and working deals are the key to getting anything done. In this particular instance, I have built a friendship with an older man, who likes to go fishing. I like going fishing too, and so he has had me go along with him several times this year. I help him with launching the boat, and any tough issues like today when the lanyard on the trolling motor broke (that wasn’t very fun fixing). So for just a short 15-20 minute drive, I am able to go fishing, and catch dinner.
If you like eating fish, you know it is expensive to buy at the grocery store. So catching it under circumstances like mine is very cost effective. I just had to pay for a fishing license, a few lures that I have lost while out on the water and gasoline to get the boat ramp. My friend takes care of the rest. Now don’t be too quick to judge here, he would go out without me. In fact he has been going out for years mostly on his own, but having me there to help him launch, etc. is very nice for him. This is what I mean by building relationships. Try to create win-win situations, and you can get a lot of things done.
