I am getting coached. Yes, actually paying someone to make me accountable for what I do during the day and how I choose to to increase my business. There, I said it. It's off my chest. I feel better now that everyone knows and I'm not hiding it anymore. And you know what? I love it. We have accou...
There are some great bloggers here on AR. The ones who can put emotion in the way they write and make you feel a certain way. I usually wish I could write that well. Use big words and catchy phrases. Sometimes I can't even think of a good verb. Yes, I envy them! But not today. See, today I read s...
OK... I'm a geek sometimes. I'll admit it. For those who do not know who Dan Kennedy is, he's probably one of the best marketers in the world (in my humble opinion). He has written multiple books on sales, business, management and marketing. I have read most of his books and have applied his theo...
I have a home office. Perhaps you do also. I have a Beagle named Wrigley. Perhaps you do also. Neither one has been very productive lately. The walls don't talk and the dog just makes funny noises during his REM sleep. I think it has worn off on me! For those of you that don't know, I have worked...
Hi there, I hope this is a good place to post..... I am looking for real estate agents / lenders / others that are very familiar with short sales. Although I am in Indiana, I would like to speak with a few from other states in case there are differences throughout the country. I am working on a n...
a deal. When Loan Officers kill a deal. That's what I'm talking about. Not some guy in a cheesy polyester suit and tie with a chainsaw..... I should explain. In the past month, I have had two different LOs from other companies kill 3 deals for themselves. Their clients then came to me for help an...
I know that I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, but I'm worried about the Fed's latest rate cuts. In a nutshell, it takes several months to see the results of the last cuts, more time than what has elapsed. I'm really afraid that they cut too much, too quickly and that they are go...
OK, I know I shouldn't use "ain't", because ain't ain't a word. My 8th grade English teacher would be so disappointed in me. She thought she broke me of that habit when she hit me in the head with the eraser.First, I need to thank everyone who commented to my last post, both on line and off. It's...
I really think they are conspiring against me. Does that sound like I'm paranoid???I'm referring to my two-year-old son and my 5-month-old beagle puppy. They are teaming up to trash my office, my home, and drive me nuts. The beagle drinks from a sippy cup, my son eats from the dog bowl, and one o...
It's been a while since I posted here, so I figured I'd scan the latest posts, blog a few words (am I allowed to say it that way?), and leave. And then I saw a post that made my hair stand on end.Read it here.  In a nutshell, some dork from RealtyTrac was on the news blaming Realtors for the fore...
