This is an entry for the Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group Contest! | Fun in the Sun While the Business Still Runs!  Join in on the Challenge! So I have my first summer of vacations (yes that is a plural word) in years.  Usually we go to one spot or another, but I'm doing three awesome v...
I was reading Kerrie's post about this month's Active Rain Contest.  Echo Sign wants to know what we can't live without.....what exactly is indespensible in our business.  I have two things that my business can't live without. First, MY HOME OFFICE INTERNET.  Our house got struck by lightning abo...
OK....on this deal I was the attorney.  I wasn to the lender, but in any event....the problem was the well and septic.  I represented the buyer and we were going through the process, but still waiting for the well and septic report.  It lagged much later than I would have liked and the seller's a...
Just sitting here in this continuing ed...I'm in the back row, trying to get caught up on life...and trying to get caught up on Active Rain.  My internet has major issues, but should be back within the next week at home.  But in affect, it's shut me down for 4 weeks now.  While scrolling the blog...

I must say that I got what I wanted out of this contest.  Sure, my internet is still down, but in any event, even with the internet issues, I got to meet, corroborate and mentor someone who really needs to be mentoring others in our industry.  I had the opportunity of having Kathy Sheehan asking ...
So I'm not perfect.  Kind of a bummer as I always thought I was.  But, seriously, since I'm reminded almost daily of my faults and the fact that I'm just not as perfect as I thought I was, my memo to myself today, and every Monday, is that today is another fresh start. Frustrations occur when we ...
So, I'm thinking that this year is all about change.  It's huge!  If we are going to go from good to great true and real change needs to occur.  Change can't be "feel good, esoteric crap.  A great friend of mine....Rich Brennan, founder and coach at The Brennan Method said that you need to....

 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
