realtor: My Day Was Going Perfectly.... - 04/04/08 09:42 AM
Then someone in front of me at a red light decided to go into reverse instead of drive, and thus my 'ol reliable 2001 Saturn L300 was shrunk by his rear bumper. Thankfully, no one was hurt, and I am grateful for that. I am also grateful that I had clients asking me if they could help me get around, or if I needed a ride. That is truly awesome! I am blessed to have so many wonderful clients who are interested just as much in my well being as they are in my listing and selling skills. It makes me … (3 comments)

realtor: Christmas Snuck Up on Me!!! - 12/23/07 01:45 AM

realtor: Recharging My Professional Batteries - Realtor goes on the road - 03/03/07 08:18 AM
So I decided it was time for me to "recharge my professional batteries". Work has been good, business has been growing, but I've found that I've needed to work just a little harder in the morning to get that spark I need to make the prospecting calls and keep the pipeline moving forward in terms of my business. I've also sensed the stress level in my body increasing, and when that starts to happen too much, I know it is time for some action on my part.
As I type this in ‘Wordpad', I am on my flight from Newark to … (2 comments)
