annette lawence: New agents face a daunting task - 06/04/17 08:35 AM
Hey Newbie, 
There is great news you need to hear. It is said that new agents face a daunting task. And that is true. Real Estate is not a easy business, not for the faint of heart.
Recently I learned something interesting about dominos. 
(hmm, must have been a slow day in the higher thought dominion)
It turns out there's a very specific math governing the way dominos work, and the rule is that a domino can knock over another domino that is up to 50% larger. 
Think about that.....can knock over another domino that is 50% larger!

annette lawence: PASSION - not an actionable word. - 05/25/17 06:03 AM
We read it so often, "You need to have passion in what you do."
Let me assure you, PASSION is not for sale at Sam's Club in any quantity.
So, how do you get passion?
Is passion the same as fulfillment?
Is passion the outcome or embryo?
Many have never experienced passion for work they do.
How would you suggest the passionless find or identify where their passion lies?
Best of success,

annette lawence: A "Thank You" to Active Rain - 06/29/16 11:53 PM
So many years ago I recall seeing from my bedroom window my Father raising the flag in the front yard as the sun turned the skyline pink.
Every morning, the same thing and every evening, respectfully lowering and folding. He never knew I watched. Never knew that the little things he did others watched. He took care of the little in the same fashion as the big, with honor, respect and integrity.
People watch us.
Here or Active Rain, people are watching what we do.
On person from the Utah Shool of Real Estate was watching all of us.
I know … (11 comments)

annette lawence: It is too small for you - 04/29/16 06:10 AM
David Whyte wrote,
“Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet  
confinement of your aloneness
to learn. 
Anything or anyone  that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.”
On this passage of life, how often have we asked ourselves, "Why am I doing this?"
Doing work we don't like, with people we don't like, in places we don't like at times we don't like.
Anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.
Keep your mind and heart trained on the big things of life.
What do you feel when you read the words of David Whyte?

annette lawence: ACTIVE RAIN : Changing Your Audience - Q1 - 03/24/16 07:10 AM
What a cool place Active Rain is.
A place to express thoughts.
A place to help other bloggers by responding to their followers.
A place to answer questions from observers, students, other agents and professionals.

Collectively, these create visibility, credibility and those lead to profitability. 
Opps!  For most on Active Rain the profitability part from Active Rain activity is not true. The reason being we are actually talking to the wrong audience to create profit.

Calling a tail a leg does not make it a leg.

annette lawence: CONVERSATION! What is BIG CONVERSATION really? - 01/04/16 10:54 PM
Recently, while at a friends house, the conversation covered the 'holiday stuff' then it went in a different direction. 
"Did you ever consider eyes?" my friend ask.
"We all have one or two, but do we ever get a chance to look at eyes? Did you know everyone has a weak eye, a wondering eye, that you can see? But we rarely, if ever, really look at eyes."  
As my artist friend shared his recent sculpting experience, and the details that change the age of the subject solely based on eyes.
Should we ever sit across from each other in conversation, and you get that uncomfortable feeling, … (2 comments)

annette lawence: Predatory lending on the rise. Who is behind it? - 12/25/15 12:29 AM
WE were there.
I mean EVERY agent still in business since 2008 was THERE when predatory lending and Bank of America's buy off of Moody investment rating system brought this nations and the worlds economy to the brink of collapse.
There still exists the temptation to exploit the most vulnerable, perhaps increasingly desperate, segment of the working class. For these folks who 'barely'  make it from paycheck to paycheck, any hit to their credit report costs them more money in the amount they pay for rent, insurance and to borrow money.
