So much is happening in this market since interest rate changes were initiated to cause a market correction in house and inflation. Personally, I feel like they are overcorrecting, but I am reminding myself, as I often do, that it is not my monkey and not my circus!
But some life lessons are sure and constant, like being proactive and not reactive. We are seeing a reactive response where a proactive one would have been a much better idea. This applies to all aspects of business and life!
