There’s a distinct difference between moving away from something or someone VS moving TOWARDS something or someone. Is your goal to do or undo? Are you creating or destructing? How’s your energy when you’re in the mode of moving away? Is it wildly different than your energy as you move forward? W...

I remember getting my first set of walkie talkies. That was SO cool. I could give one to a friend, and we could roam the neighborhood talking to each other. It added a whole new dimension to our play. Every summer, I spent the mornings at the swimming club and the afternoons playing outside with ...

Buying a house is likely the largest financial transaction of most people’s lives. The stakes are high and the complexity of arranging financing, finding the right house in the right location at the right price that’s available when you want or need to move is nothing short of mind boggling. We R...

Within a nano second of completing any purchase, an email will arrive with a request for you to “complete a short survey regarding your recent experience”. This request is showing up before you have even had the time to consider your opinion of the service you just received (or failed to receive)...

Don’t say “Yes” until you’re sure it’s not “No” You probably think I’m crazy, but before you judge me, read the rest of this short story. I’m “Throwing a party” next week. Well, it’s not really a party . . . It’s a Mastermind Meeting for a group of relatively “high profile” people gathering to di...

Not all of us are wired for working a room. I’m that guy who enters a room full of people I don’t know and heads for the remote corner avoiding making eye contact with anyone and everyone. My preference is to have only a few good conversations that have some real substance . . . talking about one...

When you tackle that architectural marvel of a Thanksgiving plate of food, what’s your way – your strategy for getting the highest level of fulfillment? There it is all on a single plate – a 1/2 dozen (or more) of your favorite foods right there in front of you to devour. Imagine the savory smell...
Many REALTORS drive fancy cars and seem to party like rock stars most of the time. The public image is one of a care free public figure who is willing to work 24/7/365 with no need for pesky little things like “quality of life.” Much of this is affirmed in local and National advertising. So . . ....

If you’re not being offensive, you’re not moving forward. You’re treading water or rocking in a rocking chair expending energy and going nowhere. or You’re being defensive with your primary mission becoming an all out pursuit of not much more than survival. In that defensive posture, the main obj...

I believe most people sell themselves short. After all, each us individually has the capacity within us to make unbelievable magic in the lives of everyone around us. We do this in our day to day and minute to minute interaction with the world. Why, then, do some folks seem to achieve SO much mor...

Yet we still benefit from making plans. You know what it looks like and where it is and who the people are who will help get “there.” With great anticipation and excitement about building this thing, you scratch a rough rendering of it on a restaurant napkin. You start talking to other people in ...

In the past 24 hours, I’ve witnessed the whole gambit of dedication. There are 2 meanings of “Dedication” 1. The quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose. 2. the action of dedicating a church or other building.   I saw a whole lot of BOTH yesterday . . .   Oh yeah . . . and th...

Are you accidentally where you are now? Are you here because you have dreamed of being here for as long as you can remember and you cannot imagine being anywhere else? Why? or Why not? Many folks “sacrifice” their reason for being because of their “circumstances.” Life came at you FAST, and you w...

We’re “problem solvers.” If things go wonky, it’s on us . . . no one else. Some want to cast blame on others, but the real truth is that this is what we signed up for. When things go swimmingly well, we celebrate and might even brag a little but not for too long because there are SO many other fi...
The barrier to entry in the Real Estate Sales Professional licensing is very low. Any non-felon can get a License to sell real estate in most states in less than a month at amazingly low cost. Some states have better educational requirements than others, but few (if any) properly equip the “new p...

Your English Grammar teacher is one of your facebook friends, and her eyes are rolling. Oh my! I’ve seen some hilarious typographical errors this week . . . all due to inattention to detail because I know these folks are smarter than their postings indicate. Sadly . . . in our relatively new 140 ...

Buying and/or selling a house is, in and of itself, a transaction that can generate HUGE anxiety if not properly orchestrated. The goal of most REALTORS is to deliver for their clients a smooth process from first meeting to the Closing table. After all when things go awry, we REALTORS invariably ...

Everything was rolling along swimmingly until suddenly it was not. Yep! It was all rainbows and buttercups and love and tenderness, but something happened. Everyone involved knew there was a problem, but we were all too busy to deal with it. Maybe if we leave it alone . . . if we ignore it . . . ...

We REALTORS deal with LOTS of drama every day. When people are buying or selling a house, there’s always more going on in their lives than buying or selling a house . Of course, there’s that bit about this likely being the largest financial transaction of their lives. Even more poignant is the re...
