Who doesn’t love the look and smell of a brand new home?
(2008 Parade of Homes - 3871 Ridge Crest Drive, compliments of NorthCarolinaBuild.com)
Do you find you are compelled to drive around and look at new houses? Do you like to walk through new homes and see the new appliances and home technology? Do you critique the decorating choices and…

I was trying to remember how many years ago I painted my master bathroom. To my amazement, it turned out to be about 11 years! Back then it was cool to use a faux finish but now it's very dated.
When I think about what color I would paint it today, I'm inspired to go back in and also replace the light fixture and faucet but then I'm drying my hair… Read More

A large phone company sent me a phone bill for a phone number I haven't had in four years! Calling the company did not help! So I used my own advice I would give to everyone, to see go to www.doncashback.com

My profession makes people uncomfortable. When I meet people at a networking event or a social gathering I am conscious that a percentage of the group are going to avoid conversation with me just because of my job title. I don't take it personally. But I do have an important message for those of you who are fearless: Be prepared! In 2005 my family lost my brother unexpectedly at age 41 and my grandfather at age 93. There could have been no more vivid illustration of the… Read More

If you keep up, you know I'm at Coffee & Contacts Monday nights at 5:30. JoAnne Schaub, life coach extraordinaire, had an absolutely wonderful idea that we should end our meetings what we want to accomplish this week. Once we share them, everyone in the group envisions each individual's intentions throughout the week to help get that done! Think of having the power of positive thinking times 10+ people. That's a lot of power.
I wanted to take it a bit further and ask for your… Read More

In Too Much Stuff, Kathryn Porter takes the reader through her journey from cluttered to organized. See if her words strike a chord in you,
"With every piece of clutter that went out the door, I lost pounds of emotional weight. My soul felt lighter. Whatever feelings of comfort or happiness I derived from having too much stuff were multiplied by letting things go. I came to understand a new definition of the word freedom."

I try to tune into news that would effect my clients, myself, or the greater community around me.
Today I heard a brief news report on NPR about retirement that I have seen with my own eyes as an advisor, but it's always good to hear it from someone outside the field.

How do you deal with customers who are content to just send in their orders when they need something, and prospects who don’t want to spend any time with another salesperson? The answer is both complex and simple, and the simple part is to not be just another salesperson. That’s a simple statement, of course, but it’s likely to be complex in execution, so let’s talk about how to make this strategy work. Because the more time you spend “in front of” customers and prospects, the more… Read More

Thoughts . . . He had profound ones back in the day writing. He's still writing, says he's he will write 150 songs and live till he's how old?
His third eye winks . . . Did not know he wrote poetry too! So we are in Carrboro at the music Festival here . . . Subliminal criminal silently screams . . . More words of poetry. You are missing a great show if you are not here.
Just praising William and Diogenes!

Feeling good about yourself is a wonderful feeling. So why don't we do it more often?
True and lasting self-esteem is a combination of feeling good at about yourself for something specific you have done and a more permanent deep-seated feeling of self-worth. That deep-rooted belief is based on the conclusions you draw about yourself over time. It's something that can be developed and fostered.
Here are 9 simple… Read More

Well I hate to disappoint my audience, but Wednesdays are just not big networking days for me typically. But I do have some great 1 on 1's to share with you. 1 on 1's are a great way to build a budding professional relationship. Ideally, you each brainstorm on how you can help each other's business. If it seems like a 1 way streak (like you meet someone who is a "taker") it's still good to meet them for the simple fact of weeding them out and knowing it's not the best referral source.… Read More
