I also like to go to Starbucks.  In fact I sometimes call it my second office.  But there is a warm and comfortable coffee shop right in the center on Armonk. The Tazza Café has been located on Main Street in Armonk for years.  Just last year it moved to a much larger location at 400 Main Street....

If you have ever used a compass you know that it always points to true North.  In the same manner your values are your personal compass keeping you on the right track as you achieve your goals.  It is important to achieve your goals but you should never violate your core values.  In a previous po...

A good manager broker has proper controls in place.  But if you have too much control it could be counter productive. With regard to your own clients and your individual business you need to be in control to see that nothing gets derailed. I have found that some owners here in Westchester County ...

Have you noticed that everyone mentions goals at some point in their blogs.  All successful business plans have goals and timetables.  But there are still some people that say, "I don't believe in goals or I have my goals in my head."  My answer to those comments: First, if you don't know where y...

About 30 years ago I read a book by Robert Schuller called The Peak to Peek Principle.  It talks about reaching new peaks in your career and life.  And then when you reach that peak you can peek to the new plateau.  In other words, success is a journey and not a destination.   Well yesterday I re...

When I teach people goal setting and goal achievement I use New Years resolutions as examples of goals that don't have a strong why.  Many times people make resolutions as they are celebrating on New Years Eve.   My favorite example the the New Years resolution to go to the gym.  I go to the gym ...

Why did you become a Real Estate agent?  Or, for that matter, why did you choose your business or profession?  Why does it really matter anyway?

The three words Ready, Set, Go are familiar in many competitive sports such as track or swimming.  A swimmer needs to make the right dive at the start time or the momentum will be lost.  He must be prepared to leave the block at the very second of GO.  Proper preparation does prevent poor perform...
