Take Time Out Today
Let's take a time out from inspiring ourselves today to have a little fun, send some gratitude and enjoy this holiday season.
First - Let's say thanks! This is a website set and paid by Xerox to send cards of thanks to our troops serving abroad. The cards are custom cards designed by kids around the United States and its easy to select one design, write a message and then send. It's free and obligatory (my opinion) to say thanks to those who ensure our freedom. Freedom is not free.
Second - Elf Yourself Many of … (2 comments)

***Thanksgiving is the most important holiday of the year for me.  My career in real estate is a result of a literal life-changing event in January 1992 - the sudden death of my father.  The previous Thanksgiving was the last time I saw my dad.  I was supposedly attending Arizona State University at the time and working full time with gemstones.  Due to the demands of retail and the holidays, I had chosen to remain in Arizona for the holiday but my dad would not have any of that.  I flew home Wednesday night and flew back 24 hours later.  I should … (1 comments)

las vegas: My Dog Can Walk on Water - 11/09/07 05:04 AM
There was a hunter who came into the possession of a special bird dog. The dog was the only one of its kind, because it can walk on water. One day he invited a friend to go hunting with him so that he could show off his prized possession. After some time, they shot a few ducks, which fell into the river. The man ordered his dog to run and fetch the birds. The dog ran on water to fetch the birds. The man was expecting a compliment about the amazing dog, but did not receive it. Being curious, he asked … (4 comments)

"Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy." Denis Waitley
"There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them." Denis Waitley

A simple message today. What is written below has been incorrectly credited to Nelson Mandela as part of his 1994 Inauguration Speech. It was in fact written by Marianne Williamson, an author.
It is beautiful regardless. Read these words. Change your perspective.
" Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small … (2 comments)

Lou Holtz is one of the most successful college football coaches in history. He is an accomplished speaker and author as well. Holtz led Notre Dame to the 1988 national championship and remains 11th on the NCAA all-time win list for Division I-A coaches. Holtz took his Notre Dame teams to nine straight New Year's Day bowl games from 1987 through ‘95 and coached the Irish to finishes of sixth or better in the final Associated Press poll in five seasons. I guess you could say he knows how to win. Here are a few choice few quotes from Lou Holtz."Life … (2 comments)

The RE/MAX Broker Owner Summer Conference afforded me the opportunity to meet and be captivated by a man who is a Katalyst for change, Kevin Carroll. You can meet Kevin at Kevin started the rubber bands concept you see people wearing these days on their wrists. Most people credit the Livestrong campaign with starting the wristband motion.

las vegas: Resale market turnaround? - 02/13/07 02:24 AM
Market activity is picking up.  Last week was the the most active since the first of the year in new pending sales.  With a significant increase in listing inventory (new listings to the market) our pending index still moved to more positive territory.
From a home builders perspective.  Through the grapevine I am aware that a large home builder in Las Vegas expects the resale market to make a rebound in the summer and continue through the end of 2007.  Back in May2006 new home permits began to dwindle in response to huge inventory of new homes and forecasted reduced new home … (0 comments)
