Are You Fulfilling Your Destiny? - 01/24/09 02:25 PM
This is a Destiny Reading for one of my Twitter Friends. I come from some gypsy lineage (tiny bit of Mongolian blood from my mother's side) with a knack for Tarot Reading, etc... I didn't pay a lot of attention to it until my children were losing focus on the meaning of life in their pre-teen and teen years :). I often had a house full of young girls who only worried about which boy liked them this week, so I started doing Destiny Readings. It created a major transformation among the young women, my daughters and their friends, to think they had (12 comments)
The #1 thing many are doing 'wrong" on Twitter - 01/18/09 06:57 PM
Hi, I'm @ARDELLd on Twitter. The number one thing I see many doing incorrectly on Twitter is hitting "reply" to a person, but not on the "correct" comment stream. Remember that many, many people using social media are watching vs. talking. When your followers see a reply from you to someone else, they will click on the "reply to" to follow the conversation/thread all the way back to the beginning. It is sufficient for you to reply to ANY Tweet, if your only objective is to reach the person you are talking to. BUT if you reply to that person using the (22 comments)

Why People Don't Need Real Estate Agents - 01/03/09 05:03 PM
I apologize for making you go someplace else to read this post. But it's long and it took a lot of time and Google doesn't like it when I cut and paste from one site to another. I think it is an important read for every agent and anyone who has anything to do with mls systems and how they function. Thank you for taking the time. Open Letter to NWMLS and Local Agents
Who wants an EMPTY INBOX? Not me!!! - 01/03/09 01:11 PM
Someone did a class at Inman Connect awhile back on "Inbox Zero". My first thought was, that's a dumb idea. I hope I NEVER have an empty Inbox. I didn't go to the class :) Here's what I'm gonna do. I'm going to FILL my inbox with one email from every important person in my life, so I can hit Reply to and get in touch with everyone I know in the first two weeks of the new year. Past clients, current clients, future clients in my prospect folder, family, friends, FULL! I WANT A FULL LIFE AND I WANT A FULL (9 comments)
Long before...well, just about anything, the visual influence of the moon's cycle was used as a planning tool for people of many cultures. It was everyone's "monthly planner". It is now 2009 and we have a little over 20 days until The First New Moon of the New Year. That is what Chinese New Year is...the first new moon of the new year. For Christians, the concept of "an empty vessell" is the equivalent of "the new moon" in the cycle. It's the time you empty the old, the stale, the rotted, the dusty and you make way for new (1 comments)
