SUPPLEMENTS - YES or NO? - 09/24/10 12:08 PM
Don't get excited . . . I'm not talking about supplementing your income (although that could be another post!) I'm talking about your health here. It has been proven that it is now impossible to get all of the vitamins and minerals we need simply from the foods we consume. I'm curious about what other people supplement their diets with? I used to take an Omega 3-6-9 daily, but I have since learned that I should only be taking Omega 3. (unless you are following a VERY low fat diet, you'll have far more that the recommended amount of omega 6 - The American Heart (13 comments)
Dream House Murder | Unsolved Realtor Murder Mystery - 09/21/10 04:01 PM
An all too real example of what can happen when we don't protect ourselves each and every day. We need to have safety systems in place. We need to listen to our gut instincts. This very very sad story is all too real and if only one Realtor pays closer attention than it was well worth the passing on of this message.
Via Colleen Lane (The Lane Real Estate Team): In 2008, Lindsay Buziak, a Victoria Realtor® was murdered while showing a lavish home in British Columbia. Sadly, this murder could have been prevented simply by screening the people she was (8 comments)
I JUST EARNED MY 200,000 POINT - HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? - 09/11/10 12:33 PM
Today is a great day and I'm celebrating with my new 200,000 STAR!! When I began this journey, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to continue long enough to succeed and here I am at over 200,000 points. I can't say I've had a huge amount of referrals, etc from being active in the rain, (Canada is a bit slow to catch on to this concept) but I have made some wonderful friendships and I have had locals comment on my hyper local posts. (not that they're interested in buying or selling - that would be too good!) (22 comments)
TRUE BLOGGING SUCCESS IS AWESOME! - 09/05/10 01:17 PM
How would you like more than 60,000 hits a day on your blog? How would you feel if you were asked to pen a book from your blog experience? Would that be awesome? You bet it would and Neil Pasricha has done just that. This former student of Kingston's Queen's University has seen this awesome success stem from his blog 1000awesomethings.com After a particularly bad day, Neil wanted to remind himself of all the good things in life. Me, being a believer in Gratitude Journals, I can understand this wholeheartedly. When things seem darkest, we have to focus on everything that can (19 comments)
