So it's been a long, long time since I've posted in regularity. But in keeping with my goals this year, it's all about going from good to great in my business. I've done spectacular, but for as hard as we work.....it's not good enough to do well. I work hard, so I want to rise. As a result, I've ...
So I'm sitting here with my wife doing work.  She is watching some flick about Marilyn Monroe and I'm contemplating life and my future with every step of all I do.  In the meantime, I'm reminiscing about my childhood as my two boys are camping outside right now with their cousins.  My oldest boys...
So I get a call because of an inquiry from the FHA website.  A guy calls me and says that he wants some help with his situation.  It BLOWS ME AWAY!!!! Cliff Note Setup: Buyer gets transferred when his company gets bought out.  He has to move to Texas.  He has to sell home quickly, but either way ...
I gotta tell you that I love being a dad.  It's been 4 years since we've had our last child, Tessa.  Today we're heading to the Daddy - Daughter date dance, but Tessa isn't going.  Rather she's been crying that older sister Claire is going to this Hawiian Themed Dance.  So, in my best efforts to ...
I have blogged so very little this year.  Frankly, that's a good thing for me.  It means that I"m not depressed or suicidal, but I am ready to pull my hair out of my head because of all of the bsiness that I'm dealing with right now.  In the process of bulding and growing, I'm getting deals and s...
Remember when it was so cool to put your head out of the back of your dad's station wagon and open your mouth?  Or maybe you put your hand out against the resistence of the wind and let it climb and drop?  I was taking my daughter home this weekend and without her knowing just grabbed the cam and...

I have been waiting for what seems like forever to hit that stupid 100 referral mark off of Active Rain.  I mean... I'VE WAITED, but TODAY I GOT MY 101rst REFERRAL!!!! Here's the deal...I was just writing this post over the weekend, when today, I received a phone call from a borrower who called m...
Last night I was at our annual awards banquet just outside of Denver.  The event was great, but what impressed me most was the "who" and the "why" instead of the "what."  Let me define the three, backwards forwards: WHAT? The what was the rewards and recognition that people recieved as being outs...
This isn't your usual..."I endorse thee for candidate post."  First, I want to say that I have ZERO political affiliation with this candidate.  In other words, we have no history and have never spoken til this year about him.  LET ME EXPLAIN There is a law out there that discriminates against sen...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
