What Motivates People? The Answer Might Surprise You - 01/29/12 07:19 PM
This is a great post about motivation. I work with corporations and sales people including real estate agents. People need to find their passion. Money is certainly important but people leave jobs not because of more money but because of supervision. Simply stated, they do not feel satisfaction in what they are doing primarily because they can not contribute and make a difference. This is not at all surprising even for entrepreneurs. You need to find satisfaction in finding a need and filling it. This results in more loyal customers and great repeat business.

Be A Juggernaut of Goal Achievement - 01/16/12 12:00 AM
Setting goals is one of the most important keys to achieving success. Studies have shown that the most successful people are the ones who have specific, written goals.
Setting a goal is not like a New Year's resolution. That is just a wish. Just wishing and hoping for something isn't going to make it happen. Setting a goal is having a target to shoot for and a plan to get there.
When planning your goals, choose which categories you would like for your goals. Establish the time frame. They could be lifetime goals, 10 year, 5 year, 1 (4 comments)

This is an important time of year for you to take stock both personally and professionally to determine whether or not your life is on track. When was the last time you thought about your life goals? Are you on track to achieving those goals?
