SEGMENT 3: Home Improvement Goals and Strategies for 2024

Dan and Hailey discuss their home improvement plans for 2024 and offer tips on how to tackle ambitious projects. They underscore the importance of breaking these projects down into manageable steps, starting with identifying what has previously hindered progress.

Hailey plans to take on painting the exterior of her house herself and plans to tackle it in smaller steps: one side at a time. It's all about taking small, achievable steps toward big goals.

For Dan, the project is painting a space in his home. Seems straightforward, but he's wanted to do it for years but hasn't. For him, the path to success is first in identifying why he hasn't already done it. Turns out there's a reason beyond the obvious one of which he was aware!

They also mention a product called 'Accelerator' from Tower Sealants. Accelerator is perfect for Professionals and DIYers alike because, among other things, it can be painted over immediately without any cracking. Also, the absence of air pockets in the tube makes application much easier.
