Winner Announcement of the "Life! By Design Contest" By Tom Ferry - 05/18/10 07:07 PM
Always good to read a post like this! So it appears I've won a month of coaching thanks to my post "I hate Tom Ferry. - My Life! By Design." The post was actually fun to write and to learn that Tom had the humor to not take offense to my declaration of hatred towards him made it even better. If you didn't enter, I would still suggest you read through the contest post and do the exercise, I found it to be rather helpful. I look forward to experiencing coaching (never had a coach other than my dad at Little (7 comments)
Tattoo You: What do real estate and tattoos have in common? - 05/13/10 05:48 PM
Tattoos and Real Estate. Two things that don't sound like they have much in common, but based on several late night conversations via Twitter with some of the agents I know, not as mismatched as one might think. Tattooing is an ancient art that has really come into its own over the past decade. I come from a family that has tattooing in its blood - both my father and brother being Marines who have several well worn tattoos between them. Real estate is a passion for me, but so is the art of tattooing. But this post really isn't about (18 comments)
A post that speaks volumes about the author. Sheila has a way with words. Speak to her one-on-one and you'll see what I mean. Some people are able to convey their inspirational messages with blogs, some with words - Sheila manages to do both well, but in addition, she often manages to do it without using either. A simple question, a certain look in the middle of a conversation, and her actions on a daily basis with her clients and her agents. I've had to ask for help at times and I will probably need help in the future. This (3 comments)
Dreamhost is insane. Cheapest web hosting deal I've ever seen. - 05/06/10 01:22 PM
I've never seen hosting this cheap. I have a great deal with my hosting provider, Dreamhost, I was lucky to receive a promo code when I was looking to start building my real estate web site (I had used Dreamhost before for the music side of things). I have unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth for the life of my account and paid a minimal price for 5 years. It saved me some money. Today, while going to check a status update on their site, I came across this page advertising a Dreamhost web hosting special. In honor of Cinco de (12 comments)
Have you heard a single word I said? Immediately after reading the title, I suspect everyone will think that I am talking about me, but I'm really just making a generalized statement here. It occurred while reading a post by a fellow ActiveRain member that (strangely enough) was a re-blog of something I had written. I had forgotten the post, so I quickly re-read through the re-blog. The fellow blogger had written a great intro to my post and shared some of their thoughts and feelings about what I had written - in my opinion, the only way re-blogging should (73 comments)
ActiveRain - Thoughts on Recent Dark Days. - 05/04/10 12:27 PM
Has the darkness ended? Obviously, if you've been on ActiveRain for more than a minute in the past few weeks, there's been a lot of talk about the dreaded downtime that has made ActiveRain an aggravation at times. I've been blogging here since late 2008 and have had an up and down relationship with ActiveRain. On one hand, I love the opportunities it has provided me and I have enjoyed the many people I have met through the network. On the other hand, I have been frustrated by the reoccurring problems and sometimes have been forced to wonder if the SEO (9 comments)
