  • Referrals from clients - knowing I brought value to them and they are a cheerleader
  • Going on a listing appointment against 4 competitive agents and getting the listing
  • Finding that special home for my buyers and seeing their face melt with excitement
  • Getting a call because I am know as the "expert" in the area
  • Making a new friendship from a client relationship that grows to that special friend level
  • Freshness to my business, new marketing image, materials, technology

My Personal Life - What Fires Me Up?

  • Photography - still taking the baby steps in learning.

  • Friends

Reading posts like this fires me up. I am the one looking for positive posts to read!!! I get enough negativity at work. Being in the credit repair business, I hear it all.

Happy Tuesday!!

A&M is a wonderful university.  The photo of my children actually was taken on Ring Day and my son who graduated with a Finance Degree and Certificate in Latin American Business Studies is now in Graduate School there studying ... Real Estate Land Development.  Hope the job market opens up for that soon!  My daughter is studing to be a graphic designer but was in the school of Architecture, visual studies aspect.

This is a great topic Connie and one that I'm sure many will have different things to reflect on.  I really enjoy helping others and knowing that I've been of value to them. It is better than a paycheck in all honesty [your staging blog yesterday had that effect on me]. 

I try to come from the standpoint of having the heart of a servant because of who utimately I answer to - my maker is who I aspire to please most.

My son is considering A&M Corpus & has been accepted - it's one of the 3 colleges he's narrowed down. We visited last month and I really liked the "island" campus atmosphere!

I thought that "Gig 'em" looked infinitely familiar. How 'bout that Lady Aggie basketball team yesterday? Whoooooooooooooooooooooop!

HI CONNIE!  I would have to say that there is a long list of things that fire me up! But at the tippy top, in the middle of the night, my daughter dragging her blanket and stuffed frog into my bed sleepily saying, "Mommy - I love you" as she crawls next to me for a hug.   I second Karen, your kids are beautiful! -- Gabrielle

I was going to say that I should send my marketing guru over here since he's an Aggie, but I see comment #13 is his.
