Missed Opportunities Suck!

…and it is even worse when you KNOW it is a missed opportunity. (I actually had a whole bunch of stuff to say about it, but this is what it really boils down to)

A Matter of Trust

A Matter of Trust

A few days ago I read Seth Godin’s blog about trust and simply, yet pointedly stated, as typical Seth Godin, he wrote: a. Don’t waste your time initiating relationships that aren’t going to thrive and benefit both sides. b. Productive connection requires mutual trust. You can’t empathize with someone you don’t trust. I think this made such an impact on me because I am always start every relationship with a level of trust.  I can remember even in my elementary school yearbook I was assigned the song  A Matter Of...

Take a Day Off???  Are You Crazy???

I recently heard Paulette from Strategic Coach speak.  She was sharing  their philosophy on planning your calendar.  There are 3 days that are important to schedule:  Buffer Day, Focus Day and, get this, Free Day.  The most intriguing day to me was the Free Day.  She said on this day I am not aloud to do ANYTHING work related, not even check email!  Have you ever heard of such nonsense??   Funny thing is, as soon as she said it, I had about 20 reasons in my head why I couldn’t possibly do that. Then she kept speaking.  She said...

Entrepreneurs Have ADD/ADHD???

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Joe Polish and Dean Jackson’s I Love Marketing event here in Phoenix.  All I can say is…WOW.  The whole entire event was a take away.  See…I even met THE HULK and got a Batman credit card!!! One of the speakers in attendance was Dr Ed (Ned) Hallowell, the leading expert of ADD/ADHD and entrepreneurs.  He founded the Center for Cognitive and Emotional Healing in Massachusetts and has an office in NY.  He wrote Crazy Busy and Driven to Distraction.  Hearing him speak REALLY helped me...

Golf As A Metaphor For Life…Now That is Profound!

Golf As A Metaphor For Life…Now That is Profound!

In Arizona we have about 340 golf courses, with a very large portion of those being in Maricopa County…that’s A LOT.   So it is safe to say that golf is a huge part of the culture here.  Personally, I just love riding around on the cart most days.  I have been told I have a really great swing but once that little ball is stuck in front of me I suddenly become a golfing spaz.    Thank goodness for scenery! Did you know the odds of making two holes-in-one in one round of golf is 1 in 67 million! Before the Olympics in 1980 there was...

My New Understanding of The Art of Feng Shui

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending an event Larry Winget was hosting and there I met a woman named Deborah Kagan.  Deborah shared with me that she used to coach many real estate professionals on the art of Feng Shui.  I really don’t know much about it other than a few clients have chosen, or not chosen, a property based on certain floor plans.  So I started doing some research and here are some very basic things I learned, because one thing I now know for sure is that there is more to this than I ever realized.   Some parts...

Would You Rather List or Buy a Haunted House or a Short Sale?

Would You Rather List or Buy a Haunted House or a Short Sale?

I was doing some research on a different blog topic and I came across an article in the National Association of Realtors(R)  archive on listing haunted houses.  Me being me, I HAD to read this article.  I have never had to list a haunted house and I don’t feel I know exactly what a haunted house is.  My analytical mind says there is always some explanation for things, but the other part of my brain says that kind of thinking is  too limited and there is so much I don’t know about to make that call. In starting my research for this...

Mind is The Master

Mind is the Master is a complete treasury of James Allen’s work.  One of the more known books by Mr. Allen is As a Man Thinketh, and yet so many people have not read it (BTW – you can download it for free on Kindle).  I have been thinking about writing this post for about a week now and then the other day I read Randy Gage’s blog on James Allen.  Then Bob Burg wrote a blog about decision making.  That’s when I realized I really wanted to write this post. One of the cool things in Mind is The Master is the meditation...

Are You on the Social Media Bandwagon or Missing the Boat?

I have recently started a new endeavor with fellow Go-Giver Coaches Mike Benton and Todd Pillars and it requires me to do some research.  In coming up with ideas and content for our super huge, ultra secret project we will be launching in April, I have started researching statistics on the best ways to reach many people.   The statistics I am finding,  in regards to internet presence for any company, is pretty outstanding.  Here are just a few facts I found that I think are outstanding pieces of information to know about: A study was...
