david saks: How to Recognize An "A" Kisser - Part 1 - 11/08/13 02:53 PM
 

There's always one in the office.
I can think of a few here in ActiveRain.
"A" kissers are suck ups, people who will kiss someone's butt to gain points, favors and features.   These are folks that tend to be the goody-goody types whom one can't trust.   They'll use what you tell them against you for their own personal gain.   They're social nerds with few social skills.   The way they get attention is to play suck-up to someone important.
The best way to deal with an "A" Kisser is to avoid them, don't trust them or confide with them.   They suck up all … (4 comments)

david saks: Business During the Winter & Holiday Season - Part 2 Personal Time - 11/04/13 11:45 AM
Here's my second installment for Sally and the Challenge.
 
Part 2 is a reflection about my personal time, how I have, and how I intend to maximize it, although some of the most personal things I plan on doing have been excluded from the following content :-)
 
Memphis can get cold.
 
You'd be surprised at how Jack Frost can ruin your banana tree.
 
But for the most part, Memphis isn't too bad during that time of year when the days are shorter, nights are longer and the wind is hurling the leaves of autumn to the earth … (8 comments)

david saks: Business During the Winter & Holiday Season - Part 1 The Benefits - 11/04/13 03:02 AM
 
To begin with, in response to Sally's challenge,
my seasonal holiday business time can be compared to watching thick molasses pour from a jug.
 
Or maybe televised chess.
 
Organizing my time during this downturn means putting a system of rules of conduct, and method of practice, into practical working order that will also  protect my resources.
 
It's easy to go off the scale spending money for holiday fanfare.
 
So when things start to go south I'll start making plans for the return of the March winds returning to put the wind beneath my wings. … (2 comments)

Erin Bates wants some low-down for her ActiveRain contest this month, so here's the down and dirty for your dining and dancing pleasure for my November fulmination.
 
Most everyone whose been hanging around ActiveRain for the last six years knows that I live a pretty satisfied lifestyle as a single man.
A very satisfied life.

No B&$# S%&#.
No illusions.
And double as a musician at times when the occasion arises.
Realtor board luncheon, studio stuff, holidays, parties, etc.
My radio show at the university keeps me pretty busy, too.
It's something I've been doing for several decades, … (9 comments)
