* * * “To flourish consciously is to abundantly share the blessing of empowerment." * * * To flourish is to share empowerment. Flourishing and Empowerment are collaborative forces. * * * This is the real estate and investment philosophy of Steed Talker Realty & Investments. Investments are opportunities to flourish. They are also opportunities to empower others to flourish. This blog is about real estate and private investment. The steed, the namesake of our firm, is often referred to because horses are an important part of my life. My experiences with them enlighten who I am, both as a person and a professional. Horses are not just important to me but throughout our species' shared histories the steed has been one of humanities most preeminent domesticated companions. The flourishing of human civilization rode in on the backs of the empowered equine. Before industrialization, it was the noble equus who shouldered the burden of labor and provided the energy that freed the human spirit to expand the horizons of civilization and to flourish. * * * * * * * * * The essence of this philosophy is also reflected in ActiveRain, as the purpose of ActiveRain is to help us all flourish and be empowered.
