  Ever start out your day with a mountain of work to tackle?  Feel like the tasks are back to back and that you just don't know how you will accomplish all before you?  I knew last night when I finally put my head on the pillow that the mountain will be there in the morning, a day of dread.  To m...

  I want to be Super Teacher and have all the right things to share.  Better yet, best responses.  I have been asked by my office to participate on a Top Producer Panel with the topic of Overcoming objections and Negotiating with sellers.  I wanted to throw this out to my creative Active/Rain fr...

Experience, the best teacher.  Sometimes the experience we have is one that we could do without.  After you get out of the moment of disgust, hopefully you will be able to step back and say ... what have I learned from this that I will correct for the future.  Such is the case on the "experience ...
