Raleigh NC – Yesterday we discussed how to avoid getting into a jam on short sale negotiations when there is two mortgages on the property.
We received a question from another agent on short sale negotiations. Here was their email.
"I have been working on a file with two mortgage. The second mortgage wants $7,500 or they won't approve the short sale.
The first mortgage will approve the short sale, but they aren't…Read More

At The hCard, we truly value our military and our first responders. Every day these brave individuals do their service quietly and effectively taking care of our citizenry. One of our core principles is supporting our military and what they do. We were recently doing some research and came across a neat article that was featured in South Florida’s Sun Sentinel newspaper; starting this past Monday, May 28, Memorial Day 2012, military families can head out and visit dozens of Central and South…Read More

I have often been questioned about the cost of funeral services. And I'd like to explain. First, consider that like attorneys, accountants, and doctors; we perform a professional service. Funeral directors must complete specialized training and education and pass a national board examination in addition to a state exam in order to obtain a license. Additional requirements include providing witness statements attesting to one's good moral character.
Every funeral home in the United…Read More

Have you set your June goals?
Do you have a daily and weekly plan to achieve those goals?
Are you readily aware of the obstacles you may face?
Do you know what resources you may have or need in order to support you?
Remember, when you become absolutely, crystal clear about what you want and how you're going to get it, you'll achieve vastly more than the average person.
And that's exactly why my purpose is to REACH, TEACH & INSPIRE women…Read More

When I found out about Brian Tracy's 30-Day Goal Challenge I knew it was meant for me personally and professionally.
Starting my own business has not been easy, in fact it's more challenging than raising my 20 month old daughter or managing a room full of hormonal teenagers (back when I taught high school). It has been the most challenging, yet one of the most rewarding, experiences of my short 30 years (well, 30 on June…Read More

Dear Friends Who Rock The Boat ~
It's going to take a lot of work, energy, and determination from people around the world to keep our access to herbs, vitamins, natural medicines and homeopathy free. We have seen bit-by-bit the dwindling of access around the world, due to the work of powerful lobbies with lots of money and backing. …Read More

Last January 31st, U.S. Marine Sgt. William Stacey was killed during his fourth deployment to Afghanistan. Yesterday, his last letter was read to his fellow Marines to commemorate Memorial Day. His dream, his life purpose, was to provide the children of Afghanistan an opportunity to get an education, attend school and achieve something better for their lives.
He wrote, “There will be a child who will live because men left the security they enjoyed in their home to come to his," Stacey…Read More

I wrote a column for a printing industry trade magazine nearly 20 years ago, titled “Inquiries, Tips and Finds.” The basic idea was that leads come in three varieties: inquiries, which are generally raw responses to some form of advertising; tips, which have been qualified to at least some degree; and finds, which are suspects a salesperson digs up on his/her own.
One of my clients is a regular advertiser in a local business journal, and its readers…Read More

Memorial Day is a time to reflect on all our fallen veterans.
They served our Country and paid the highest price - let us pause this day to remember their service.

When our fight or flight response is triggered every day through work, personal or environmental stresses, the result is a steady stream of stress hormones in our body. Both the direct stress response and the accumulation of visceral fat can promote systemic inflammation and oxidative stress.

You've probably had this happen: the morning is going well! You had worked out at the gym and had enough time to enjoy a cup of tea before leaving for your first appointment of the day. But then...you went to your computer to check and see if there were any really urgent emails. Next time you checked the clock it was 8:15am and you need to leave at 8:35am to be on time for the appointment. You hadn't even taken a shower! So you run around like a chicken with your head cut off and tear out of…Read More

Using a "Pattern Interrupt" (an NLP Technique) is a great way of initiating change in your behavior. It creates a virtual Hiccup in your thought process so that your normal pattern of behavior is interrupted and you can consciously insert a new belief that leads to an action.
Humor is a fantastic tool to incorporate into the Pattern Interrupt because it links up a “fun” state to the new behavior you choose to take afterwards. Here are a few fun pattern interrupts that have come up…Read More
