 When I was a younger guy, I used to work with a gal from somewhere down south.  Her manner of speaking soon rubbed off on those who worked around her and had me referring to women I was friendly with as "Hon" ...(short for honey).  I honestly never meant it as anything more than a friendly way t...

    Ever feel like you've been to one-too-many mixers, seminars and networking group recruiting breakfasts?  Most give you that cheesy nametag to wear so that insincere social misfits can walk up to you, call you by name, and spend the next 20 minutes blathering on about their local store which, ...

Remember when a campaign button was an effective tool?  If you do, you are surely much older than I am.  Still, I like the simplicity of them.  Today, so much of our advertising is high-tech, internet related or somehow even more impersonal.  Buttons seem to be more tangible and even more valuabl...

I recently was approached by an unethical person who apparently wished to engage a Notary, ...any Notary, in an endeavor whereby the act of notarization itself made the document a fraud.  He apparently knew that this was an illegal act, and was fishing for a sucker so that he could say to others:...

In my experience, having conducted over 5,000 signings, borrowers often have trepidation at the signing table.  For the most part, mortgage brokers don't even know that the docs have finally come together from the lender and that escrow has sent me to sign their clients.  After the surprise of my...
