active rain: Baseball season has started......take a breather!!!!! - 04/11/09 12:39 PM
Many in this business look forward to the annual ritual called Baseball season, as unless you have a private box - THAT DOES NOT INCLUDES ME, of most sports you can attend the games and maintain a coherrent conversation - or for the most part be heard by whomever you are conversing with.  I guess that's why many use this sport as a mix of entertainment with business or networking sprinkled in.
My condolences to the family of Nick Adenhart.  Most of you have heard about the incident but for those who didn't he was part of the Los Angeles Angels … (5 comments)

active rain: A.I.G. Reverses Bonus Hustle - You heard it here first!!! - 03/17/09 09:02 PM
3.19.2009 UPDATE
BONUES TO BE TAXED AT 90%
_____________________________________________________________________________________
 
AIG (American International Group) has relented after being beaten by public outcry we haven't seen in some time......and has agreed to Repay the Taxpayers 165 Million of the "Bonuses for Helping to Bring the U.S. Economy Down."
 
We'll be digging to get the facts straight but boy talk about a reversal.  A few thoughts.....
1.  Tim Geithner has been getting hammered, and rightfully so as wasn't he part of the AIG negotiation in the first place and where was his due dilligence?
2.  Everybody involved who received a part of … (11 comments)

active rain: Money is going unused - 03/14/09 06:55 PM
MONEY IS GOING UNUSED.........TARP that is
Many are doing everything possible to insure their business weathers this economic tsumani we have been experiencing.  If not for our own business, certainly our customers rely on credit to make deals happen.  Some of you may recall then Secretary Paulson's leadership in executing the TARP program switched from dealing with toxic mortgages to shoring up banks so their capitalization would "look good."  
Even though that was not the spirit originally agreed which became THE LAW so we could  tap into our Treasury - TARP was born.  Of course that move has been debated and … (3 comments)

active rain: Don't know about you.....but I've had a great week!!!! - 03/06/09 04:48 PM
As we move into mid day Friday (I'm on the West Coast), like you, I measure my success by accomplishments.  I try and stay organized and maintain some level of discipline.  5 Good News Tidbits I would like to share:
Prospecting!  Does it ever stop?  No.  So in that case I've had a good week of having quality conversations with those who are targeted to do a transaction(s) in 2009.  Again, I'm looking for the 1 Yes, versus the Zillion No's! - plus we all know........professional sales is a numbers game. Marketing.  Among other things we sent out our weekly Hotlist … (2 comments)

active rain: It's been a slow process but COMMON SENSE is finally coming to light - 03/05/09 09:54 AM
MORTGAGE MODIFICATIONS FROM THE BENCH INSTEAD

Now that specs of the Housing Recovery Plan has been announced, another huge component of getting out of this housing mess is allowing Judges to modify mortgages directly from the bench. Like the Recovery, this is not a catch - all for everyone but certainly whatever the population is who will benefit is more that before.
We all know that reversing or amending policies can be time consumming........at best, but for nearly 2 years people who fled to bankruptcy court for protection still were at the lenders/servicers mercy to get their payments in line … (3 comments)

active rain: It's Here!!!!!!! What They Promised for March 4, 2009....... - 03/04/09 05:44 PM
After much debate and the scorn of some, as well as the complete debacle of similar programs promoted
during 2008, The Specs of the President's Housing Recovery Plan have been announced.  
 
While it is not a cure all, it certainly has the potential to help thousands of more homeowners than the dubious number promoted during 2008.  Nevertheless, before frustration sets in.............The Program Has It's Limits, so for those who can fit into the window outlined it may be the difference in finally being able to get some sleep versus literally worrying to death.
The program has some interesting merits and … (0 comments)

OK - Today, you have been promoted to the Governor (whichever state you reside).  I'm sure you've heard the ripple/noise regarding how Governors/Mayors plan on spending their portion of the 787B Economic Stimulus - Spending Bill, Jobs Bill, Waste of Taxpayer money or whatever definition you accept.
GOVERNOR'S DEBATE

Here's the challenge - again, YOU ARE THE GOVERNOR!!!!  Would you accept the money?  If yes, How would you spend it (your top 3 priorities), If no, Why would you not accept it and what would your explanation be to … (5 comments)

active rain: Are You An Active Rainmaker???? - 02/20/09 10:24 AM
I still consider myself a newbie to the Active Rain group but my experience has been very positive.
I thought something was wrong with my screen when I noticed a new Avatar/Badge.  Anyway, after looking further I noticed I am an ACTIVE RAINMAKER!!!!!
What???? I thought............ which prompted some research so my encouragement for the day is this community is what we/you make it and we are rewarded by our involvement and investment.
These type of enhancements will continue to allow our network to stand out from the others, particularly for those who are members as well as those who are … (6 comments)

active rain: Economic Stimulus........Now to the housing front - 02/18/09 12:32 PM

2 down..........3 to go!!!  The Housing Recovery Bill is also official and implementation can finally begin.  What's amazing depending on how you feel...........right or wrong, there's always going to be some debate, which is healthy.  On the other hand, those who are still reeling from the passing of the Economic Stimulus or who simply don't support any idea (unless it's your own or those you support), stay tuned as I'm sure in the next hour or within a couple of days there will be other issues that you may find troubling.  Some probably criticized the fonders of Active Rain for … (0 comments)

active rain: Economic Stimulus........It's Official - Get Over it!!! - 02/17/09 11:01 PM
Some of you may be jumping for joy!!! while some of you may be utterly disgusted!!!  Whatever your perspective - GET OVER IT!!!  President Obama officially signed the Economic Stimulus bill into law today.
Here's the reality.....at least from people I talk too.............Our economy has been stuck for more than 6 months so taking the posture of criticizing any effort or doing nothing is simply A Naysayers' delight.  On the other hand doing nothing, just for the sake of being cantankerous offers ZERO solution.  While I am sure a better bill could have been drafted ......... the debate would have been … (4 comments)

active rain: Active Rain & President's Day 2009 - 02/16/09 09:59 AM

2009 is flying by and the third week of February is here - so in keeping with our national tradition, we take time to celebrate President's Day.  Perhaps this year has more significance as our nation is also celebrating President Lincoln.  As an Active Rainer or a person who thrives on sharing knowledge our hope is you use this day to help educate those who may not have known the significance of these national holidays.
PRESIDENT'S DAY DEFINED

Today's Blog will continue our discussion on African-American History Culture Celebration.  In previous post we highlighted WHY/WHEN/HOW it was started, however today we will add a new twist to help educate those who simply wonder ......think the Celebration is not needed or should be minimized.
While no doubt diversity has it's benefits, some ponder why such Celebrations are needed in the first place or why can't we go back to "the good ole days?"  Aren't we simply pondering to those groups? or asked to remember things we may not want to remember or deny they ever occured? or Why can't those … (0 comments)
