jay thompson: REBarCamp Phoenix - Mark Your Calendar - 03/04/09 11:25 AM

April 23, 2009 Scottsdale Stadium
RE Bar Camp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.  While we don't quite have a "firm" location, we do have a date.  So, consider this post your invitation - kinda of a "Save The Date" announcement.
Jay Thompson, The Phoenix Real Estate Guy, explains “It’s an “unconference” with no set agenda. The agenda is built that day and often morphs through the camp as people gather, talk and share. It’s … (6 comments)

jay thompson: Shailesh Ghimire’s Blogging Seminar Success - 08/16/07 02:54 PM

jay thompson: What's Your Price? The Value of Your Service - 06/22/07 04:06 AM
Staging Arizona Real Estate:  Value of Your Service: Putting a price tag on what you do 
If someone called you and asked you "How much does it cost?" or "What is your price?" What do you say?  Do you put a dollar amount on the "perceived value" of your service or are you hourly? 
What is the value of the service you offer?  If you had to put a price tag on your service, do you get enough?  If not, are you doing your "job" because you enjoy it and are passionate about it?
Brian Tracy sends me a daily email with a "Quote For The Day".  Today's thought really … (0 comments)
