Starlight Radio - 03/21/09 04:00 PM
Earlier this month I had a great evening attending Fraser Valley Stage presents Starlight Radio Theatre show at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium. Great nostalgia for us who remember the radio shows of the 1940s and 1950s. It was a great night of singing and comedy. Well done players.
Abbotsford's Realtors where well represented by the multi talented presence and lead actor Mr. Charles Weibe of Landmark Realty. Charles performed a gut roaring rendition of Abbot and Costello.
I was both surprised and pleased to see, Bill Borman, who gave me my first job in real estate, pushing (2 comments)
Fraser Valley Stage - 03/20/09 02:55 PM
Better late than never is my motto. I want to give a shout out to Fraser Valley Stage and their presentation of Starlight Radio Theater Show early this month. Our local real estate community was magnificently represented by the talented Charles Weibe, Landmark Realty. Charles presentation of Abbot and Costello's routine, "Who's on first" was hilarious. (as was his partner) Bill Borman, my first real estate manager, and past owner of Gale Realty and the Abbotsford Realty World Franchise. Bill did a magnificent job of pushing a broom which is a talent I did not he possessed. I know what a Full (1 comments)
FEAR: Focus on the Solution - 03/19/09 02:08 PM
While reading Jeffrey Gitomer's comments about the three mainstays of advertising, Fear, Greed and Ego, I thought about the changing face of fear in North America and the impact fear has had on us the last sixty years. Those readers in my age bracket will remember the fear our parents who endured "The Great Depression" lived with and brought into our lives. Upon the end of WWII they encountered the fear of living in a changed and changing world of unknown social and economic uncertainties. We were the first generations that FEARED complete annihilation. Upon one push of a button the (2 comments)
Storefront Real Estate Offices - 03/19/09 01:02 PM
Real Estate - Taipei - Work Ethic I want to wrap up my Taipei experience with comments on a couple of thoughts that were frequently on my mind during the long hours I spent walking on the busy streets and lanes. Busy, from a North American context, is not an objective that adequately describes business in Taipei. Business interaction is not just busy it is constant. One stream of thought that occupied me was the large sense of thousands of shops, businesses and buildings that seem to have no end. The other stream of thought that keep leaping off the storefronts (4 comments)
Hobbs Herder Presentation - 03/04/09 07:06 PM
Jig Patel, Hobbs Herder, did a presentation in our office today. Jig is an excellent presenter who challenged our Real estate mindsets.
Here a few gems from his presentation:
DECISION MAKING: We are one decision away from changing the rest of our lives.
SYSTEMS: Start with something small. One phone call. One email. Add to it every day. Systemize it. Don’t run your business. Let the system run your business.
FOCUS: In every opportunity there is risk. Focus on opportunity not risk.
FAITH: I will base my decisions on faith not fear.
