My oldest son Kellen raced the Austin Ironman 70.3 this weekend.  Ironman 70.3 starts with a 1.2 mile swim, followed by a 56 mile bike, and ends with a 13.1 mile run.  In his words “that was brutal”. The final portion of the race, the run, is often the most challenging.  A few miles into the run ...

Just over two years ago I leased my first ever BMW.  Call it an early mid-life crisis, or fulfilling a childhood dream.  I’ve always loved the idea of driving a BMW and so when the time was right I leased one to give it what I call a “three year test drive”.  If I fall in love I’ll pony up and bu...

A few weeks ago a broker asked me how it is that I have so much confidence in the Realtors I work with.  She found it surprising that I seem to have a fundamental belief that anyone can make it in this tough business.  I’ll tell you how I answered after sharing the following story:Last week I rea...

  Last week I had the opportunity to take a few days off of work and lead a group of youth on a church sponsored pioneer trek.  In short, we divided about 100 teenagers between 8 couples and formed families.  The families loaded all of their gear into handcarts and then pulled them through the mu...
