I bet the title caught your attention. It seems that the one thing that everyone pontificates about today, but we all know in sales that you never discuss it. Funny how that is.
I will not be posting about that either. Instead, there is really a broader subject that encompasses both: All of politics and religion is local. What I mean by this is that the community shapes their lives on a local level. Today is local election day. There are many who will not even know that because it is not widely published. By my count, there are 64 local elections going on today ranging from School Board to County Commissioner to Mayor. All of these will have an impact on your daily life. You should be concerned, right? There are other places in America where people are outraged. How did it get this way? We all waited until it was too late. If you read this today, check it out and vote. You can find information at the North Carolina State Board of Elections Website.
We all have influence. Our association is in the business of influence. We are here to protect and provide a platform for you: the member. There are many legislative proposals going on in the state legislature. Ultimately, they will affect your career. We have many posts about them all over the NAHU, NCAHU and in our case TAHU. If you plan to spend 20, 30 or 40 years in this business and shape your life around it, isn’t it worth paying attention to?
The Triangle area has several municipal elections today. Please get out and vote! If not today, I hope this post has given you the forethought to be ready for 2022.
