Happy Fall from ReadyStageMove™  


When we think of October we think of the warmth of fall days and the cool, crisp nights that autumn brings. In business, we also hope for all things "bountiful", "harvesting" partnerships that can help us build our businesses, keeping us prosperous and productive during the lean days of winter. 

If your client is considering selling their home after the holidays, this month is the perfect time for them to get a head start on clearing out the clutter starting with their mounds of paper that may have accumulated over the years. It is important to remember that when selling a home, paper takes the most amount of time to sort through and make decisions about. Most importantly, it cannot simply be tossed, but must be safely shredded or recycled. This month's article -- "Paper be Gone!" talks about using a shredding company to safely and quickly help your clients dispose of unnecessary papers. 

October may also be the perfect time to take the first step in preparing your business so that you, too, can "harvest" your own strategic partnerships. An easy way to do this is to make ReadyStageMove™ a part of your new and improved business model. As a member of the RSM™ community, you will quickly discover the secrets behind the system, which can help you develop and grow effective strategic business partnerships. It is always the perfect time to work your business smarter -- using this unique and creative team approach to marketing and selling homes. 

As you take a moment to enjoy the colorful transition of summer into fall, consider attending a ReadyStageMove™ upcoming class, webinar or social event.

"Paper be Gone!"
by ReadyStageMove™ 

Let's face it . . . paper is the bane of our very existence. We all find ways to cope, but the reality is that unless we have a system in place -- it is probably going to end up in every room of the home. This can be a problem when it is finally time to prepare your home for a move. A seller can be faced with decades of paper and not know what they need to keep and what they can simply discard. 

If your client is ready to sell and if they know that they will be faced with this overwhelming task as part of preparing their home for sale, recommend that they consider working with a professional organizer to help them sort it all out. You can feel confident that when your client uses a professional organizer to help them with this task, they will keep what is important and be able to quickly discard the rest. 

ReadyStageMove™ professional organizer, Jean Marie Herron recommends:

  • Create a "landing strip" to sort through your papers, categorizing them as "File", "Shred", "Recycle", "Follow-up."
  • Schedule blocks of time for this project and make the commitment to follow through when the time comes.
  • Utilize a shredder, a town-wide "shred-a-thon" or hire a professional shredding company for the safe destruction of your confidential information. 
  • Research to see if your town offers recycling services.

In many cases, when people are selling their homes, the amount of paper accumulation is so large it would greatly benefit them to hire a professional shredding company that can come to their home, providing a large container for collection or simply removing all the accumulated paper in one trip. This is an affordable, quick, stress-free solution to emptying an attic, basement, or home office that may contain years of paper. 

Before anyone begin this task, however, it is EXTREMELY important to know what you need to keep and for how long.

Did you Know? 
If your papers do not "roll up" to your income taxes, then the decision whether or not to keep them becomes personal choice. Jean Marie recommends you follow the IRS guidelines on what to keep and what you can discard.
