I thought of all of this work stuff.  I thought of all of my lending stuff.  I thought of all of my Active Rain stuff, and I deducted that I really need to stick with my heart on this Going for the Gold Contest that Anna "Banana" has put together.  Check out her blog post.  Go For the Gold - Acti...

So I just get into Wisconsin for a quick one day getaway and all over the national news and all over the local news is Paul Ryan, Paul Ryan, Paul Ryan?????  This past week we had Obama implying that Romney killed a woman at his company although he hadn't worked there in years.  On the other side,...

Just saw 7th Heaven recently. These guys were nothing short of awesome. Again....#1 song in Chicago and #11 nationally. For me, it's refreshing to see a bit of homegrown music, although the lead singer is from Ireland. What do you think? They're coming back to Saint Charles and I can't wait....Pl...

I have been back for over a month now.  But in truth, I've been back for two moths now.  It takes 4 weeks to create a habit....both good and bad. My internet was down for two months and it created such a bad habit that when I finally got my internet back, my bad habit was really well established....

So...we had the best fourth of July ever up in Door County Wisconsin this past summer.  It was a great time had by all.  We have scheduled our summer vacation up at Door County as well.  Here's one overwhelming reason why we keep going back.  For me....enough said!!!!  Hope you enjoy.

In order for me to really impact homebuyers, I need to have a meticulous system for working through processes.  For me, it's incredibly succint, not over the top, but ridiculously over the top, otherwise it won't work. I incubate buyers AND help them educate themselves.  I put them in Home Scouti...

I love how the government keeps digging into our pay and asking us to do more.  It's no wonder that in the last 2 years Illinois has lost more than 65% of it's licensed originators.  Bring on more tasks and drive them all out!!!!  Another bright idea by our government.   Here's the latest new req...
