Where Is Your Floor?

“Talent sets the floor, character sets the ceiling.”

Your natural abilities only get you so far. Some people start with a little more talent in certain areas but it’s not what you start with that allows you to grow better and achieve more- It’s the hard work, passion, and determination to improve that makes the difference.

At some point in your life you’ve probably heard someone say “that house has good bones,” it (quite literally) has a good floor on which something great can happen. But, can we let you in on a little secret? It doesn’t really matter how good the bones are if you don’t have the right team to build something beautiful on top of those bones. In the same way that you’ve probably met or work worked with some naturally talented people and some who work so diligently to produce good work, we’ve worked on homes with ‘good bones’ and those that need a little extra TLC. And, guess what? They all turn out spectacular in the end!

Regardless of where your floor is, what can you do this weekend to heighten your ceiling?
