I believe the learning is in the thread...and the BLOG only gets it going! - 08/07/09 03:15 PM
After reading the FEATURED blogs the last couple of weeks or so...I have been disappointed, happy, eager, discouraged, and every other emotion that I can/cannot think of right now! That said, I truly believe that if you are going to AUTHOR A BLOG, especially a Contraversial one, then you should take the time to appreciate the commentors, and respond within the thread! THAT IS WHERE THE LEARNING & EDUCATION TRULY HAPPEN!

Why being in a "Bull in a China Shop" no longer works today! - 08/04/09 09:45 PM
Okay, today the preverbial "Straw that broke the camels back" hit me...so here is why, and my advice to the "Ruling Class" out there! Folks- Forcing things, threatening, having your Manager call, or just plain being a Bull in a China Shop no longer works today! All it does it create more problems, animosity, and stress!

( call or email Jason Sardi for a definition of verbose LOL )

How about a SUCCESSFUL HVCC story......or TWO!! - 08/01/09 02:36 PM
Well, within the last 72 hours, I have had 2 SUCCESSFUL appraisals fall within the HVCC guidelines! They have both been delivered at/or above the purchase price, and we are "ROLLING ROLLING ROLLING!"
I thought with ALL THE NEGATIVE publicity it has been getting, I would give the HVCC some solid PUB! Even though my friend Rowdy here is still a little doubtful, I am confident we can overcome this HVCC issue. In the two examples I am about to give, one was ordered thru the WELLS FARGO system, and the other through the Bank of America system! To clarify too, (15 comments)
