Elk Grove's Best of Business, 2020
     It is time for this year's Elk Grove's Best of Business competition.  It is amazing the transformation Elk Grove has gone through since I  moved here in 1999.  We went from a few restaurants and traveling to South Sacramento to see a movie to a very vibrant community with plenty of wondrful companies.  Every company in the competition deserves our support, but I wanted to showcase a few of my favorites.  Of course, if you see a real estate agent that looks familiar (Testimonials), I would appreciate your vote. ;o)  Click here to vote … (13 comments)

runnin for rhett: The Super Bowl and A National Day of Healing - 01/31/20 07:59 AM
     Make sure to share your Super Bowl predictions below!
     Super Bowl parties are always fun and I love to be a part of the festivities even when the only one true team, the Raiders, are not playing.  Alas, the Raiders rarely participate so I have to make sure the party itself has all the right ingredients.  I learned this lesson well about 30 years ago.  I featured, as my main course, a huge prosciutto sandwich.  I had found the recipe in Bon Appetit, so I thought it was going to be delicious.  The results?  I was ahead of my … (20 comments)

runnin for rhett: Ch Ch Ch Changes ! ! ! - 01/26/20 10:41 AM
       Sometimes, like the great David Bowie song suggests, you have to make some Ch Ch Ch Changes!  Last year was full of changes for me.  I closed one of my companies, added weekly newspaper marketing, earned a new real estate designation, started creating videos and devoted more time to fitness. It was a big change in focus and, more specifically, here is what I changed.
 
     1) My companies-For the last 10 years or so I would run my painting business in the morning and my real estate business in the afternoon and evening.  It seemed like a good … (13 comments)

runnin for rhett: Running a Half Marathon is For Crazy People - 11/14/19 05:11 PM
    Running a half marathon is for crazy people.  That is what I told my wife, Mary Margaret, when she wanted us to train for the Shamrock'n half marathon.  I did not run with her, but I was at the finish line as her most avid fan.  Hey, it can be tough to be a fan.  It was hot out there and I got a bit of a sunburn. ;o)
