Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy.

My blog posts have been serious and absolutely focused this month. Challenges tend to bring out my professional voice. That said I have had a number of visitors lately and this one taught me a few things this past weekend.When I was young I was punk-ed by my then boyfriend in front of his family....
In life there are always compromises. In business I call these things reconciliations because we do the best we can to bring two or more unlike things together, and then move on as best we can. There are always things I am unable to reconcile, but when I concentrate and focus on what I can do the...
