What's in your Life University?

Real Estate Agent with Coco, Early & Associates

My kids have made fun of me for over 20 years at my "self-help" collection, my real estate library and my financing compilation.  It is my own University of Life!  For many of my childrens' younger years I settled in with the works of Danielle Steele, Jude Devereaux, Nora Roberts, LaVyrle Spencer and Sandra Brown to name a few.  So, Mom taking on a new career and new literary friends brought about great debate as to if I was "sane". 

Zig Ziglar, Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, Dale Carnegie, Anthony Robbins, Mike Ferry, Gary Keller, Brian Tracy, Jeffrey Gitomer are a few of my favorites.

From my University of Life I have offered many friends and family members support and optimism in what appeared to be the lowest times of their life, or help in finding the solution to funding a project, sometimes it was a relationship situation and one of my books offered them the chance to see another perspective.

Donna, Since I opened my office seven years ago, I have kept a bookcase in my office for my own lending library of my "Life University".  I have a number of Real Estate books, motivational speakers, and lots of "life support" books written from a Christian perspective on subjects from money management, credit, goal setting, family, husband-wife relationships, bible study, biographies, etiquette, healthy living, and more. You'd be surprised how often these get borrowed...

Lisa, I am with you!  I have built up an "audio" library also that has become well used!
