I think TLW needs to think outside the box. Humor is the best medicine.

On a somewhat positive note, I counseled two people with cancer about my experience at MD Anderson. I am sorry for the cancer but I am grateful that I can help and give hope. It is not enough just to survive.

OK, I am always hessitant to do this, but of course, being accountable is what it's all about right!

Many years ago I lost 40 pounds on an accountable group, so I know it works.

I appreciate this opportunity!

Here goes...

After a perfect weekend camping at Thousand Trails Morgan Hill California, with my 4 kids 2 dogs and wonderful husband.

Tuesday I went and bought a new outfit (this can give you a great new prospective)

Wednesday I hit the door knocking, for my client to move to the perfect neighborhood,

met some wonderful new people

Thursday took the kids to Cal Skate, the school fundraiser (talked to few people about Real Estate).

One of my friends asked about a home.

Friday I stayed at school for the flag ceremony, one of the Teachers asked me to run him a CMA, then upon returning him the info, he asked me if I can help some of his parent find a home, I said well, of course!

I sent over another possible home to my friend, the one she asked about is already sell pending.

I can't wait for the next update!

Much didn't really happen for me. But at least something happened.

Got a referral from my lovely mom.

Had a good conversation with Drew Guillen. He was able to sell me on the idea of getting a Vision website with Hit Router through Market Leader for my business. (Will do that next month).

Woke up to see another day-Thank you Jesus.

Two of my prospects are now very serious about buying a house now.

And after many too many attempts,I am finally listed on Geotwitter http://geofollow.com  Thanks to Bill Gassett for blogging about www.Geofollow.com . I need all the internet presence that I can get.

BUSINESS IS ABOUT TO GET MUCH BETTER- I CAN FEEL IT.

Love this idea - I had a pretty good week all in all!

Best thing that happened is a house I consulted on accepted an offer 27hours after the sign went in the yard! Amazing!

Found out today another home I consulted on also accepted an offer this week!  That is three total this month!

Completed another staging consultation

Had eight people attend a staging demonstration I offered at a local boutique - only two of them were on our mailing lists!

Solidified a new partnership with a photographer offering virtual tours!

Thursday: Put in 3 offers trying to lock up my next few rehab/resell projects. Rented out two of my investment properties!

Friday: Traveled to Chicago, as I was invited to give a presentation to a group of 50 investors on why they should invest in Indianapolis. Met some amazing people, and a lot of business will be coming from this group! Took the time to meet with a couple of my partners that live in Chicago to discuss the structure of our Live Ustream show that will be launching at the end of June.

Saturday: Spoke with two young investors and they are hiring me as their investment coach. I help people find money, and walk them through a deal from start to finish.

Sunday: Most of Sunday is planned off to spend time with the family, but I will be taking a few hours to work on a book project I have underway.
