been a quick first month, but I just noticed that I've been out photographing for a month for my new job. Photo-wise it is pretty much meat and potatoes, but that's just fine by me. Real estate wise, I'm learning a lot, I just hope that that continues.
I'm currently doing 'inventory' photos, 'every' commercial building in a given area. I'm getting to know the cities and towns very well of course. My next assignment will be where I grew up and that will be a mixed bag, tough to go home again, but it will be 'good' to be home at the same time.
I'm almost up to 'speed' so to speak. I need to get about 5 more properties per day in order to make my goal next month. If I do that, I'll 'pay off' the shop in three months with a portion of the bonus $. Actually what I'll do is afford to 'finish' the shop sooner. Going to be hitting the bricks hard starting next tuesday , when I hope to be on to new territory and a better method to reach my goal. I"ve been going at just under 20 properties per day, and I need to be closer to 25/day. definitely an attainable goal, just a matter of time.
One frustration I've had is that my nightly uploads are 'behind' and I have a backlog of photos yet to be cataloged in the system. it looks like tonight will catch up a bit. I hope to be fully up to speed this weekend as far as the uploading is concerned. That's only a 'problem' inasmuch that if they don't have the photos, I don't get credit for the work I did. The problem is my network connection times out. I then have to restart it and it works fine after awhile, but that restart means my network here is slow in the evenings. oh well.
Hope to be otherwise occupied in a couple of weeks making sawdust and stringing conduit etc for the new shop.
