Hi all: I did it! A blog post a day! I'm laughing out loud or as my fellow Rainer Donne Knudsen said ROTFLMAO! Granted, it's only been one month and my big hairy audacious goal was a blog post/day for the whole year. Suffice it to say I've got a ways to go. Wish me luck! So what did I learn by do...
Hello: In a couple hours, we're headed to the Enumclaw Wine and Chocolate Festival! Last year was the inaugural year. It was great. I think I overdid it! For those of you who know me well, you know I've been called many things including wine snob and even wine whore. Let's put it this way. I love...
Hi all: I hope you are having a nice weekend so far. Yesterday I had the pleasure of eating at the Lakeside Bistro in Renton. This is the second time I've been here and the food and service are superb. I ordered the coconut curry chicken which was stir-fried. It was delicious. The Lakeside Bistro...
Good morning! The following is meant to be mostly tongue in cheek and in no way to offend anyone who has multiple designations. By the way, my designation is CBW-Chief Bottle Washer! I guess my point is designations are great as long as they serve the customer. Those of you who know me know I som...
Good morning: I just had the pleasure of attending a good friend of mine's, Alan Pratt, seminar about legacy planning. The thoughts Alan left with me made me think about how deep I'm really going with my clients. I'm a relational person in a transactional business. Once someone has done a loan wi...
Hi all: I hope you're having a great day. I was just informed by our Director of Operations that we will have to start getting individually licensed in each state we do business in besides our own. The Legacy Group is currently licensed to do business in 14 states including Washington. Now it app...
Good morning! I've learned this about social media. It's all about the relationships! Perhaps I always knew this intuitively. Regardless, if you're like me, you're impatient and expect results sooner rather than later. I've been a member of Active Rain since the summer of 2007. I came here becaus...
Good morning! I wanted to relate to you about how I spent my Sunday yesterday. For probably going on at least a year now a fellow church-goer, Bartholda Manderville, had been calling me to help serve breakfast to the homeless. I had always resisted, sometimes to the point of being flaky and not r...
In response to my fellow Rainer Julie Booth, I wanted to report on Brian Buffini's recent trip and half-day seminar in Seattle this past Tuesday. I showed up at the Doubletree Hotel at Sea-Tac expecting a crowd of 150 or so. Instead, the ballroom was packed. There must have been 1,000 people ther...
Good morning! The weather up here has been incredibly mild. Sorry California. You can have our rain! I was thinking yesterday about the importance of keeping on. I would be the first to admit that this new year hasn't quite started the way I thought it might. What with changes to the Good Faith E...
