Round about this time of year most begin to make progress on their resolutions, or begin to give up entirely. I think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something grander in the NEW year than in the previous year, AND NOT give up. However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving it! I for one have been guilty of it. How about you?
There’s a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift.
Before I share the book details, here is my TWO PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!
Part one: The Guarantee!
I will guarantee, in writing, the sell of your home for 100% of Asking Price or I’ll Pay the Difference.*
Part two: The Give Back!
Just like las ...

THE GIVING SEASON- One of the Core Philosophies at our company is this: The size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through. You could even say that ‘giving starts the receiving process.’ The point though is NOT to give to receive, just go give! After all, this is the giving season
With the current year coming to a close, celebration of Christmas and other Faith Driven Holiday Celebrations all mean different things to different people, but most always represent,
joy, peace, gratitude, and hopefulness.
A GIVING SPIRIT- If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike at other times of the year. Why can’t it be that way every day of every year? It can! It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help.
HAVING PEACE OF MIND AND GETTING TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR HOME. EXPERIENCE COUNTS!
As a result of working with hundreds of families and thro ...

Moms and Halloween!
It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expense! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Mom’s are involved in celebrating with their families.
What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like. Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin seeds ...

Labour Day. YADILOH SDRAWKCAB EHT.
In case you aren’t sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around I wonder why it’s named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.
Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.
These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter &nbs ...

Boy… It’s hot, and not just outside.
You don't have to be a weather person to predict the weather this time of year. We all know… it's the hottest time of the year. But that’s not all that’s hot. The economy is red hot too. By all measures the best economy in almost 20 years. This is GOOD for most reading this, but there will be some exceptions. There always are. An example could be someone will sell a house and make out great, meaning a buyer pays a bit more than they would have not too long ago. And in some areas, the opposite happens. Seller does not make out that great, but the buyer does. Most know this and will hold back on buying or selling. That will of course impact supply and demand, creating RED HOT opportunities for investors.
How does this impact you?&n ...
