Giving - 11/26/09 07:58 AM
To get he had tried, yet his store was still meager. To a wise man he cried, in a voice keen and eager; Pray tell me how I may successfully live? And the wise man replied, "To get you must give."
As to giving he said, "What have I to give?" I've scarce enough bread, and of course one must live; But I would partake of Life's bountiful store. Came the wise man's response; "Then you must give more."
The lesson he learned; to get was forgotten, Toward mankind he turned with a love new begotten. As he gave (8 comments)
736 Joes Lake Road, Cambridge (HUD HOME) - $92,000 - 11/23/09 03:38 PM
736 Joes Lake Road, Cambridge is a new listing I noticed on the BEST ASSETS website. I have not seen the home come up on the MLS yet so this is a home that a lot of buyers might not know about. The link to the info is here: http://www.tenmanagement.com/listings/property-detail.do?list=2009-11-20&code=MN&case=271-889779 The initial bidding period ends next Sunday 11/29. I have been finding a lot of good deals on HUD homes this year and this one is price below market value now. So if you or someone you know whats to take a look at it let me know.

EXPECT what you WANT! - 11/19/09 10:07 PM
It might seem like a simple concept! Of course you should EXPECT what you WANT! However, the results most people get don't reflect what they want. We could all debate why that is. The individual can justify and rationalize why that is, but when it comes down to it their FAITH isn't strong enough to trust that their GOOD will come forth. Or to put it another way the person who gets things they DON'T WANT has attracted those things by spending too much time DOUBTING that their GOOD would come through or FEARING the things that might go wrong in (4 comments)
Develop A Prosperity Consciousness - 11/14/09 09:58 PM
I have increased my sales and production in the last two years while putting in less hours. One of the biggest differences for me in the last couple of years is that I have developed a PROSPERITY CONSCIOUSNESS. I used to spend more time focusing on the NOT ENOUGH or LACK and when I became aware that those LACK and POVERTY thoughts were not helping me I decide to change my thinking! I have to tell you it took work and it is still a work in progress for me. Each day I continue to program my mind for success by (9 comments)
You Think You Have It Bad? Someone Else Probably Has It Worse? - 11/12/09 01:57 PM
Many of today's real estate transactions can WEAR YOU OUT. Closings can be delayed because of title issues, underwriting delays, septic issues, and a plethora of other challenges. Plus the more sales you have going on as a Realtor the more you probably have to worry about. I tend to be someone who is able to dwell in an UPLIFTED state of mind most of the time. However, there are those moments where I catch myself thinking about what can go wrong, or why did this get delayed and whose fault is it that it was delayed! But the reality of (4 comments)
The Time To Buy A Home In Minnesota - 11/08/09 10:01 PM
When it gets too cold out, most people don't want to move. When the holidays are near by people are too busy to look at houses. Year after year I find that it slows down this time of year because less people are looking for homes. However, if you are in a position to buy a home now, use this time to find the right home! This is the BEST time to buy a home in Minnesota and here is why: 1. Less people are looking because its too cold for them to move. ( More homes for you!) 2. The (1 comments)
Back To Back Pick The Pros Prize Winner - 11/03/09 03:31 PM
Its been a long time coming for me to actually make good football picks, but in back to back weeks I won the Pick The Pros prize dished out by Wells Fargo in my area. Basically you just pick the winner of each NFL game (excluding Mondays) and whoever has the best record wins a prize. I came into the office today and found that I had 2 prizes, one each for the last two weeks. Of course now this week I actually decided to think when I was making my picks. This might be the kiss of death. My upset (3 comments)
