Merry Christmas & Here’s to a Prosperous 2020

Well, what an absolute shit of a year 2019 turned out to be. There’s no point sugar-coating it; it is what it is.

I must say, however, that I am in absolute awe of the way the people of our district and further afield have maintained their resilience in these challenging times. All of our clients have been affected by the drought. Many have had the extra burden of the fires that are ongoing. And still, the most common refrain I hear is that “someone, somewhere else is worse off than us”.

Another observation I have made is the high degree of strategic planning that virtually every rural business has made. As the drought continues into 2020 it is important to review those plans. Whether divesting, consolidating or maintaining, there are opportunities during these tough times, just as there’ll be others at the end of it all.

Right now, though, It’s time to reflect upon a job well done and remember family, friends and community who have helped us all through so far, and continue to do so.

At MacDougall Rural Property, we wish all our clients a Merry Christmas and a much, much better 2020. If it doesn’t pan out that way, I know that we all have each others’ back and that is very reassuring.

We are in this together.
