The picture, above, is of my dog, Beau.  Beau is a Puggle- a "designer mutt" resulting from a Pug dad crossed with a Beagle mom.  My wife, kids and I love Beau very much, but he is a challenging pet, due to his personality.  Among his quirks, he has a tremendous sense of self-entitlement.  He be...

Last week I attended a conference for real estate lawyers up at Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, Michigan.  The setting was beautiful, the event was well-run, I made some great connections and I learned a lot.  One of the best lessons, though, occurred at dinner one night when I was waiting ...

A couple weeks ago I emailed an old acquaintance of mine.  He works for a local mortgage brokerage, so, being in the title industry, I wrote to ask if he’d like to get together for lunch.  When I got a response, the reply was brief and to the point: “Good to hear from you!... Do you have any clie...

Last week I responded to a request from Stewart Title's corporate headquarters in Houston.  One of Stewart's newest Business Development Officers had been invited to speak to a group of Realtors, and he was looking for sample PowerPoint presentations he could use as a template.  So, I sent one I ...

Today I participated in a conference call with some of my Stewart Title colleagues from across the United States.  I was very impressed!  Stewart is insuring the title-work on some very large (in terms of dollar amount) commercial properties.  The call started with team members on the West Coast ...

Last week I attended an event put on by Lori Williams of Your Legal Resource, a Michigan-based business.  The topic was "Growing your business without selling: Client retention and relationship-building strategies for professionals."  The speaker was another Lori- Lori Jo Vest, co-author of the b...
