Don't Stress... Do Less...Happy Thanksgiving to All of You - 11/20/07 10:18 AM
This morning I got up early with the express desire to check on a few posts, and people, but hey this is the "Rain" and my plans haven't worked out. Having a lot of Thanks to give everyone, and Personal Wishes takes time....time I don't have at the moment because I either procrastinated, was too busy "giving", or just didn't think of it :) :) I am finally leaving for my much anticipated Vacation. Before I go I wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone, and have run out of time trying to go to hundreds of peoples Blogs to give a (34 comments)
Is Untechi a Word.....if not, it sure is an experience :) - 11/18/07 04:50 AM
How many times do I have to hear "it's simple"......Tech Stuff wasn't made for some of us that absolutely hate reading directions. Tonight I neglected my commenting on Posts, and totally ignored new Group Posts while I tried to make one of those Real Estate Shows...... OK, I decided to bite the bullet and try to make one of the Shows; Sounds simple enough. However the first problem was I clicked on the 30 second show and for another hour I could not figure out how to change it, and finally gave up, after shooting off a mail to tech support. The next problem was (65 comments)
Is Having 2 Offices worth it with Gas Prices so high? - 11/16/07 02:46 AM
Having more than one Real Estate Office can be challenging, especially with the price of gas. Why would anyone drive 3 hours to get from one office to the other? Would you drive this far, and if so what would you do with your time? Me, I love the drive; not the expense, but the drive itself. I love having 2 Offices, both in different areas, and both with their own rewards. My 2nd Office is fun, it is in a small town, mostly vacation and second homes, but many people live here year round. I love the fact that I can spend hours just (32 comments)
How Loyal are You..... - 11/10/07 08:24 PM
Loyalty and Relationships. Remember those early days of any relationship....the courting was fun, you felt special, and you loved the attention and got your needs met? So, what happened after the Honeymoon period? Relationships are something that should never be neglected. Many of us are experiencing a decrease in our business right now, and we all know that it is tough to overcome the drop in our closed Escrows. Is this the time to neglect those that have been loyal? Is this the time to go looking for greener pastures? What many people seem to forget is we can outgrow our first love, and our loyalty might (54 comments)
How did Your Website go from Great to Pitiful - 11/09/07 12:13 PM
When was the last time you really looked at your online presence? Tech tools, tech fun...you hear everyone say they can help our Business, but these tools are only good if you know how to use them. If not, it's no fun at all, and can change your perception of what was once Great to what is now Pitiful. Our Websites.....our online presence. I have this Blog; I have 5 websites.....2 Real Estate Oriented, 1 Photography, and 1 Notary. Two are pretty good and two are in dire need of HELP. Thank You DAKNO Marketing (Bobby Carroll) for giving me 19 pages of what I need to do. Heck (51 comments)
Holiday Balance: Giving the Gifts Worth Giving - 11/05/07 12:29 AM
This morning I awoke to the most beautiful Sunrise; pinks, oranges, turquoise and yellow. The sun was not visible yet, but the scattered clouds were changing colors as the sun slowly rose over the horizon. A crescent moon sat boldly in the sky , a reminder of the night that just passed. The Grand Canyon.... a flaming red sun coming out of nowhere making the land appear to be on fire as it reflected on the desert floor...a sunrise, not too long ago over the Colorado River...beautiful, majestic, the dawning of a new day. These are my memories, my gift to myself. (47 comments)
When Is Prejudice Justified...... - 11/02/07 12:53 AM
Are you ashamed to be an American? Prejudice is alive and well in the World. Yesterday Monika McGillicuddy wrote about a Church that was protesting Military Funerals, and this mornings news reported the Judgement against them. But this isn't really about Americans, or our ignorance in some things, this is about Prejudice against a whole Ethnic Group, pretty much world wide. Today the European Union is in turmoil...specifically Italy and Romania. For years the Roma Population (Gypsies to us) have been marginalized in everything....education, housing, constitutional rights, and everything else you can think of. In order for Romania to join NATO and (44 comments)
