  Good morning!   I think we're FINALLY shifting from winter to Spring here in Nashville.   With all of the recent Spring Showers, our world is beginning to BLOSSOM in so many ways.   Lots of spring showers means more clouds and less sun . . .   and it's all good because . . .   the trees and gra...
  This morning, I awakened at the ridiculously late (for me) time of 7:08 AM. Most mornings by 7:08, I’ve done more than many people do all day. I was TIRED . . . VERY TIRED . . . at the end of last night and not feeling so well as my Spring allergies are kicking my butt in the form of a relentle...

We REALTORS talk a LOT about statistics and trends . . . and we study them and make up our own . . . all in the name of being knowledgeable enough to be able to advise o...

If you want to know if there’s room on the price, go to the “trouble” to compose an of...
  As a Real Estate Sales Professional, I receive myriad “cold calls” from VERY convincing sounding folks peddling “guarantees” of gobs of LEADS for my business. I suspect that this phenomenon isn’t unique to my industry. Likely, most every industry has its own rendition of companies and consultan...
  REALLY? This comment came at the end of session I facilitated during which I stressed the importance of having a strong accountability network built around the participants’ efforts to implement The Life Rhythm Way. Throughout the session, my mantra was that understanding the flow of the “syste...
