Ready For The Listing Season?

Sitting at my desk, contemplating this afternoon’s course at the Northern Colorado Realtor Summit, Creating Listing Abundance. While I’m not concerned about the content and I am not shuffling through slides for the 473rd time (only up to 306th), I’m wondering how many agents will be wise enough to respond to the possibility of learning a little[…]

Maybe, however, authors could take that into account and stop while they’re ahead. If you only have 85 pages worth of things to say, maybe[…]

Tony Robbins, Certainty, Hallmark Movies…

Tony Robbins says that one of our biggest human needs is the need for certainty. While there may be many manifestations of that need, I offer a holiday place of certainty: The Hallmark Christmas Movie. Hallmark movie, certainty? You bet. There a plethora of characteristics that bind the Hallmark Christmas movies. Here are eleven: 1.[…]

“Whether you’re 9 or 90, stop trying to fix the things you’re bad at, and focus on the things you’re good at.” – Gary Vaynerchuk It’s always been the case. Since Cain and Abel there has always been someone around to remind you of your weaknesses; what you suck at. It’s still the case in the[…]
