Wow, it's the end of another year and it seems like only yesterday that I was trying to get used to writing 2011 on checks.

2011 had it's ups and downs but overall it was a year of growth, both in person and in business.

As the business grew we found ourselves making decisions that impacted the lives of hundreds of people, especially in the remote areas of Haiti where little or no relief effort is given.

We teamed up with a wonderful Haitian church in Orlando Fl and besides the usual relief of food, clothing and basic meds we undertook to make a permanent difference in their lives by ensuring that 2 villages would have sufficient drinking water for many years to come.

Each of these villages now has the ability to produce 5000 gallons of drinking water per day from a system which runs off of a 12 volt battery (we also supplied small solar panels to ensure the batteries stay charged), has no moving parts and a life expectancy of over 50 years.

My thanks to all my loyal Realtor friends and repeat clients for your faith and trust in both me and my company. It is because of you that we were able to accomplish this.

May 2012 be a year of peace, prosperity and personal growth for all my Active Rain family and friends.

Thank you all who left comments on my blog. You are a source of encouragment to me. I am convinced that more and more of us who are self-employed and see the hardship and misery that surrounds us on a daily basis, whether it be here or abroard are doing whatever they can to aleviate the suffering of our fellow human beings. For those who are in financial hardship keep working at your success, you can do it. Team up with others more successful than you and learn from them, emulate what they are doing and then personalize it to suit your personality. Remember don't try the "fake it till you make it" routine, people will see right through that. Be genuine, it's the only way to be successful in this business. Oops, sorry about the rant, I should have truned it into another blog.
