4 Thoughts on Growing your Business
I asked a coworker this week if he could take over my bi-weekly "Growing your Business" class coming up,  and he decided on the topic of creative ways to grow your business relationships. 
He asked for my own contribution to the discussion, and since I awoke early this morning,  I sat down to brainstorm.
Here's what immediately came to mind:
Connect people to people. Don't you feel affirmed when a friend wants you to meet one of their friends you don't know? Same applies in business.
Get personal - have a coffee/soda/watch the sunset moment. ( example: Take your … (4 comments)

2.  Mountains.
My kids thought Tucson was just a flat desert plain with a few Saguaro Cacti to break up the monotony before they came to visit.
Tucson is surrounded by four main mountain ranges, on all sides.
Santa Catalina's, including Mt. Lemmon, to the north. Santa Ritas to the South.

Here is Cat Mountain, SW Tucson,Tucson Mountain Range.
Tucson Mountains to the West - This is a closeup of Sombrero Peak.
Pusch Ridge to the North, part of the Santa Catalina's in Oro Valley.
Rincons to the east.
They are amazing, and each different in their own ways.

Selling your Home - What do Your Walls Say About You?
Yesterday I enjoyed another weekly home tour with available listings for sale in Dove Mountain, Marana, AZ.  We saw homes priced from $300,000 up to 1.4 million.
One of the things that enters my mind when looking for a new home with a buyer is...what mind set is the seller in?  Are they motivated to sell, or are they just listing to "see what happens"?
One of the advantages of a home tour is, we can ask a question like, "Why is the seller moving".  When I ask that question on behalf of … (1 comments)

Every so often I run across statistics that make me say WOW outloud. The most recent, and I can’t remember the source (sorry) said that in the first few years of a Real Estate career, 80% fail.

An escrow officer partner shared a nice story/meditation today, written by Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr.,  about having fun.
How when we were young, it was fun to pretend to be a grownup acting out a job.
But, somewhere along the way, we forgot that it WAS fun. Life is full of responsibilities, but we CAN HAVE FUN. We can choose to enjoy.
This made me think back to my own growing up.  I remember a weekend, (we had MANY such weekends) where we went out cutting down trees, hauling and burning branches, cutting firewood, stacking the truck and coming home, where I … (1 comments)
