 Picture Ah, a new day. You have your goals, your dreams, and this time you are really going to nail it!  It all sounds good…..until it doesn’t. So let me give you some advice from years watching this same drama unfold that will help to make today better for you. TIP 1: Don’t try to do too much. We always OVER-estimate what we can do in 1 year and UNDER-estimate what we can do in 10 years. If you have not worked out in 6 months, don’t start back with 3 sets of 10 of max weight. And this goes for all your goals…small bites that you actually do and then adding to them is WAY better then trying to do everything in week 1 and flaming out TIP 2: Have INTEGRITY. Do what you say you will do. You set a goal to do this thing on this day, do it. Stick to it. If you start to find yourself getting ...

     Our very own Orlando, FL has been ranked among the Top 5 best places in the USA for flipping homes, and it stands out as one of the most profitable locations for this venture nationwide!     According to Attom’s 2022 U.S. Home Flipping Report, 407,417 single-family homes and condos were flipped across the U.S. in 2022. This figure represents a 14% increase from 2021 and a 58% surge from 2020, marking the highest level of home flipping activity since at least 2005.     In 2022, investors purchased 8.4% of all U.S. home sales, which is nearly one in ten. This is up from 5.9% in 2021 and 5.8% in 2020.     However, profit margins for home flips in 2022 tell a different story. Gross profit margins dropped to their lowest point since 2008 after experiencing the second significant decline...

Did you know your front door paint choice could impact your home's value? 🚪🎨 It might seem surprising, but the color of your front door can significantly influence potential buyers' perceptions and, consequently, the offers you receive. In fact, a recent study found that certain shades can boost or lower a property’s sales price by thousands of dollars. Imagine standing by a beautifully painted front door at a listing or even at your own home. Here's what you need to consider: Take a Look at This Front DoorHave you ever thought about how the color of this door can actually impact the whole home’s value? A recent study by Zillow revealed that a front door painted cement grey could lower purchase offers by more than $3000! Such a seemingly small detail can make a significant difference in...

A little more, Lou Ludwig always had some great blogs to share with us. Motivational Power Quote   Doing a Little More and Just a Little Farther “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas A. Edison 1847 - 1931, American Inventor, Businessman   As I see it. . . . . . . .   Doing a little more and just a little farther   You will know how close you were to success . . . . if you decide to give up and quit.   It’s always too early to give up . . . . and it always time to give an extra effort.   When you feel you reached the point of no return and you’re ready to give up . . . .
