Do The Right Thing

Do the right thing. That’s the secret. If I could only teach my people one thing that would contribute most to their success in real estate those four words would be what I would say. And if they went out into the world of real estate armed only with that advice I feel like their success […]

Sculpture

Some Monday Musings You may already know that I don’t really do resolutions for the new year, one of the reasons for this is I still feel like a huge chunk of marble, and that I am still chipping away little by little to get past the fear demons that inhabit my brain. Maybe once the […]

Three Words

There is an old and stupid joke. A joke exclusively told at weddings. Inevitably the father of the bride or the groom will speak, and he will say something like, “in our 26 years of marriage I learned that there are three words that will help you have a long and happy marriage, three words that […]

40% In The Tank

I take on a lot. At least it seems that way to me, and the hardest part isn’t that I get burned out on the things I already have going on.  That would be easy to address. The problem is I can’t figure out how to do all the things I want to do. It does […]

Marketing

Marketing is stupid. Maybe I should clarify. The way most businesses go about marketing is stupid… …here is why. When was the last time you bought something because you saw it on a billboard? When was the last time you bought something because of a clever commercial? When was the last time you bought something because […]

Learning

I’m afraid of looking like an idiot. Maybe not everyone is this way, but more than anything in a social context I fear people thinking I am stupid. Maybe it’s the knowitall that lives in my psyche. Maybe everyone is this way but doesn’t admit it. Or maybe, just maybe it’s an artifact of my anxiety. […]

Renewal

2020… The new year… The new year is a tough one for me, I was looking back over my post from last year and I just harped on the uselessness of resolutions. I still feel the same about resolutions. Many of us look at the new year as an opportunity for renewal. An opportunity to shed […]

Last Day Of The Year

Here we are again. December 31st. The last day of the year. As I look back over 2019 I feel the need to exhale, so much has happened, yet so much of what has happened can’t be quantified. I think about the complexity of starting Unity Group, and it’s hard to believe we opened our doors […]

Books

I love books. I always have. My mom once stated that I didn’t really seem to need friends as a kid as long as I had a book I was just fine. While that no longer holds true my love of reading and learning about new things has been a theme that has permeated my life. […]

Don’t Do What You Love

They say if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. To a lot of people this means to follow your passion and try and make a living doing that thing. I think that’s a stupid thing to do. And I’ll tell you why. I have loved writing and performing […]
