That is the question...
I had the pleasure on Tuesday to have lunch with my good friend Mike Mueller, the premier Loan Broker in Contra Costa County.
Most of the conversation revolved around making use of the productive tools that are available to Realtors and lenders in order to make their services known. Most of these tools are absolutely free or very low cost; in addition, the increase in productivity, organization and efficiency can't be beat.
From a long list of items that Mike suggested that I use, what he said that I needed to do first was to BLOG, second, he said that I should BLOG and third, to BLOG again. I started BLOGGING in December of 2007, my last BLOG was done on December 12th and I never did it again. Lack of inspiration and time were the most used excuses that I armed myself with, however, the real reason was a lack of discipline on my part. Discipline, easy three syllable word, with the greatest impact on everyone's lives is what sets apart individuals like Michael Phelps, the 8 Gold Medals winner in the Olympics, or Jason Lezak the anchor leg swimmer in the monumental come-from-behind victory for the U.S. 4 X 100 relay team, from the myriad of good athletes that didn't quite make it.
Let's see how I do in the future, I don't want to over complicate this, I just want to BLOG and if I keep it simple enough to begin with, I'll develop the habit and discipline that I need. I have so much that I can share; I am a Realtor and this is a great time to buy Real Estate in Contra Costa County; there are so many opportunities presenting themselves; interest rates are still low enough, FHA loans are becoming the norm again, etc. Bank owned properties (REOs) abound, especially at the lower end of the market.
Anyway, until the next time.
