Has anyone out there in the Active Rain community attended any of Mark Mcclure's, Ruthless Entrepreneur seminars? I would like your feedback. The web address is www.markmcclurelive.com.

Way To Go Celtics - 06/18/08 12:18 AM
The Boston Celtics just threw a colossal whupping to the La Lakers this evening. 92-131. The teamwork they displayed should be a lesson to us all. As Realtors, if we took on this market like the Celts took on their season, there would be nothing beyond our reach. I am happy for the Celtics but equally happy now that the Lakers beat our own San Antonio spurs. Reason being, I would be in the Lakers shoes tonight asking "did anyone get the number of that freightliner!". A great coach a great team effort, overall an exciting BBall game. Good for you (4 comments)

Warning!! This story has been known to bring tears to some peoples eyes. I believe that the road to happiness is paved with stories like this
The necklace The cheerful little girl with bouncy golden curls was almost five. Waiting with her mother at the checkout stand, she saw them, a circle of glistening white pearls in a pink foil box. 'Oh mommy please, Mommy. Can I have them? Please, Mommy, please?' Quickly the mother checked the back of the little foil box and then looked back into the pleading blue eyes of her little girl's upturned (3 comments)

Firday the 13th - 06/13/08 04:21 PM
Some believe that when the 13th falls on a Friday there are going to be bad things happening. What is the reasononing behind this? If one believes something to be true than it will most likely become true. Your mind creates your daily exsistence. Should we believe Friday the 13th to be a bad day? Why not just say, "Friday the 13th...14th....whatever Thank God it's Friday".....oh by the way, thank God for each day. Remember, every day above ground is a good day! (2 comments)
Get Excited! - 06/12/08 05:03 PM
The time has come for all good folks to get excited again. I have seen a lot of blogs about this and that and there seems to be a bit of concern about the market. We need to refocus and realize that the Real Estate business is not an easy, show up and collect a check endeavor. (How's that for a flash of the blindingly obvious!) There is a lot of fun and hard work involved in order to be truly successful in this business. Here are a couple of action steps to rekindle the fire. Go out and buy a copy of the Rob Report.

Attitude - 06/08/08 09:57 PM
Of course by now we all have heard of the movie "The Secret". (http://thesecret.tv/) If not go out and buy a copy today! Most bookstores will have a copy. My wife and I do our best to raise our family on good Christian values. This movie in no way impedes them. It is good information we all can live by. You are what you think about most and you will act as you see yourself. Attitude, not just any attitude, but positive attitude, will lead you through the fog. Always remember that the plan you are living, past, present and future is Gods plan. (4 comments)
