money: I WANT MORE MONEY - 10/16/14 11:09 AM
I worked for a company that was such a great opportunity to learn and prosper at for about twelve years. I remember when I first started, I was paid rather well but on probation to see if I would work out. After that, my education and my pay increased and finally the pay hit a ceiling. I want more money
I WANT MORE $$$
My boss at the time sat me down and said. I am paying you above scale now. He offered to give examples and even told me to go out into the world and investigate for myself. If … (2 comments)

money: IN MEMORY OF YOUR MOTHER? - 08/25/14 07:24 AM
I had a good friend years ago come to me in earnest and want to capitalize on a Real Estate situation. It appears that his wife's mother died and left a home free and clear to her daughter his wife. I was so happy for them because they needed the money. What could possibly disrupt this windfall and good fortune?
RELAX AND REJOICE
I do a quick assessment of the house value and to my surprise find it to be worth $350 ish on a quick sale. Oh happy days and my friends can stop worrying about their future, their college costs for their boys and their own welfare. This is … (9 comments)

money: GIVE PEOPLE POWER OR MONEY AND STAND BACK - 08/11/14 06:57 AM
It never fails as a test to see who someone really is. Power and money for some reason gives permission for a person to unleash themselves, without restraint thus revealing who they are, what they think and how they want to proceed in whatever the matter at hand is. I have seen this from both sides too. BTW, you cant imagine it either.
MADE IT MORE FUN
I noticed when I came into some money and power, I became more liberal in procedures and rewards. I started taking what was a business environment and making it more of a social productive event … (9 comments)

money: PEOPLE WHO ARE IN IT ONLY FOR THE MONEY - 07/12/14 07:43 AM
You cant hide for too long about who you really are. Oh, we all have the ability to act, get away with, and impress a story or stage an act, but you cant keep it up. Time, will wear you down because trying to hide a motive is high maintenance. You see it is designed to tire you eventually revealing what is really going on. I have seen some very impressive shenanigans, but none make it past one year and quite a few get outed in shorter periods of time
YOUR FIRST LOVE?
I worked for two distinct individuals in my life time … (0 comments)

money: COLLEGE DEGREE DECADES AGO MEANT MORE - 06/30/14 03:15 PM
Go back some years and a college degree was a big deal. Heck, if you want to explore the subject of education, getting a High School diploma was a big deal. What happened? Now, the GED has devalued the high school diploma and the college education has taken on new dynamics as well
GOING INTO DEBT
First of all, going into debt to purchase anything is risky business. I believe just about everyone has come to terms about taking out a loan for a car or a home. But other than that, debt binds one unless one knows how to leverage it and make it … (2 comments)

money: NOT PAY A MORTGAGE FOR FIVE YEARS? - 06/06/14 07:28 AM
This subject always intrigued since the seventies which is when I became familiar with those that late pay. I had a chance to work with hard money lenders, underwriters and to manage a large assortment of income properties. The income from these investments was important to keeping the operations thriving
RENT WAS DUE ON THE DUE DATE
When rent became due, a person under contract had 24 hours to make the payment on the day due or the next day they qualified as being delinquent and subject to late charges too. A good manager tries to reduce the work load to low maintenance by running a hands-on … (9 comments)

money: ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DOLLAR? - 05/24/14 07:09 AM
Not wise to base everything on a money outcome. Yes, it is relevant to the systems that surrounds us and we interact with all our lives. The problem is that instead of making it a tool, we made it a love and the love of money is the root of all evil
WANT and NEED
Its core root is called WANT. That is the misery that plagues everyone which is the "wanting" of things. It is like a drug after a while this "wanting" process. Don't confuse this with "need" which has a place of respect in our journey.

money: BUYING OR SELLING? WHO ARE YOU OFF TO GO SEE? - 04/07/14 11:11 AM
  I hope its the Wizard. Remember? I'm off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz. I hear he is a wonderful wiz this wonderful Wizard of Oz. Substitute (in thought) Real Estate agent for the Wizard's part. That's what a licensed agent does...They make Real Estate transacting...wonderful
IF EVER A WIZ THERE WAS?...THERE IS!

Agents are the wizards of the transaction. When we are finished... somebody either bought or sold a piece of real estate and either went HOME or to the bank. They did it effectively and efficiently. We got you in or we got you out. No magic! … (6 comments)

money: MAKING IT IS EASY KEEPING IT IS ANOTHER MATTER - 04/05/14 10:44 AM
The title of the post was brought home up close and personal to many during this last brutal Real Estate crash. Everyone was able to purchase a home no exceptions and many dreams came true. It was the American Dream slowing down so you can hop on and ride along
NO GUARANTEES
Well we know that things happen. Jobs terminate, health acts up and miscellaneous kicks in supporting the premise of the "no guarantees in life" cliche. Getting started, a foothold and even a good job is not hard to do. What to do during and after remains challenging
RESPONSIBILITIES AFFECT OUR THINKING

money: IT MAY BE YOUR FIRST SECOND OR EVEN THIRD TIME - 04/02/14 07:13 AM
Hello buyers and sellers and welcome to the world of Real Estate. I personally believe you have clear thinking and ambitious goals if you plan to take advantage of either getting in or getting out of the Real Estate arena. Real Estate performs and it is wise to visit with it 
ALWAYS SOMETHING TO LEARN
I want you to know that after doing this for many years, I still marvel of all things that have to be considered when navigating through the purchase or the sale. This business doesn't teach you everything you need to know first time in or out of it. … (9 comments)

money: HI MAINTENANCE OR HIGH MAINTENANCE - 03/31/14 01:27 PM
You the person should be an ongoing piece of evolving work. Sorry, you are not able to stay the same or devolve unless you choose to do so but true and real life is not set up that way. You are to always be assessing the self, improving, critiquing, adjusting and eventually striving to be better
HOW CUTE AND ADORABLE
You don't have to tell this to a newborn baby when they first enter into the world. They are already all they can be and they remain lovable, wanted and near perfect with innocence and simplicity driven with love all taken place without effort. It is their default

money: IT WASNT BEAUTY THAT KILLED THE BEAST IT WAS COMMISSIONS - 12/16/13 12:45 PM
I recently sat in a hearing where there was a commission dispute. It involved no less than four agents, two principals, a bank, several buyers and finally a hearing panel. WHY? Because of the monies involved and the people who want them at all costs
HERE IS ONE REPULSIVE WORD
You see it everywhere you go but some people handle it better than others. GREED. Look at the word for just more than a second or two. It is not an attractive or inviting word but it has made itself at home in many a person on many a subject matter. GREED

money: MONEY THAT'S WHAT I WANT BEATLES SONG contest entry - 12/06/13 10:45 AM
I am a listing agent. If I have heard this once, I have heard a thousand times from sellers. We want top dollar. We want to walk away with the all the money we can get. Okay, that's understandable. There are many ways to skin the money cat...Let's talk about it
KEEP THIS IN MIND
Also, you are not the only one with needs here. Everyone involved wants the same thing. The Beatles song Money That's What I Want addresses all our needs. This worked pretty well for me from 1978-2013. I think I will use it again in 2014

money: IF WALLETS AND PURSES COULD TALK - 11/13/13 11:47 AM
I remember when I was a kid, I saw an older man attempting to pull out his wallet from his pants pocket or trousers. It took two hands, one to hold the pocket in place while the other dug in and scooped out the contents. A massive bulge of leather with a huge rubber band came out. Then, with the hands of a surgeon, the wallet was, positioned, unwrapped from the rubber banding and then opened up
WHATEVER IT WAS...IT WAS IMPORTANT
It was full of sections with lots of pictures, folded papers, some money (hidden) that I could see, documents, and unknown … (6 comments)

money: TIME HEALTH MONEY DESIRE LIFE - 10/25/13 03:32 PM
When the title of the post is fully engaged people report having a pleasant life experience. These four things mean something and having them is the proof of this statement. Not having them says something too. Consider as well that missing one or two doesn't complete the experience and does not allow boasting rights. The four must travel as one to achieve optimum
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
On time...one must make the time if they are to have what they want to experience.
On health...it requires respect and care and in return will give back accordingly. Ill health dampens and weakens while good lifts and performs
On money...it opens the doors … (4 comments)

money: DONT STOP SPENDING MONEY OR WE ALL GO DOWN - 09/05/13 07:46 AM
Bush W tried to make that point after 9-11 hit us....remember? He was briefed and made to see that if Americans showed their fear and reaction by staying home and not spending or at the very least changing their spending habits, the effects of that bombing would be far-reaching indeed. Many don't know that there were other targets designed to promote additional financial chaos
WALL STREET SHUTS DOWN
Disney Parks were targeted, shopping centers and other similar and of course the airlines ($billions$) and if it was all introduced effectively at the time when you add it all up, it is … (5 comments)

money: ONE MILLION DOLLARS OR A PENNY DOUBLED EVERY DAY - 08/30/13 06:56 AM
You made a decision. I hand you a million dollars and you walk away at a fast pace with things running through your mind. You are full of excitement and for the time being, all is well. Someone asks you, where did you get the money? You say someone said to me, take a million dollars right now or take a penny a day doubled for 30 days...I grabbed the million...That person says...OH NO!
Day 1: $.01...We know. No big deal. Not even worth stooping down for or the time it takes to do so
Day 20: $5,242.88...No bigger deal and … (2 comments)

In any profession or retail environment whether it be online, in person or bricks and mortar, if you say you are going to do something or that something can be done if you are hired to do it...well get to it or get out of town! People want what their money can buy
OPTIMISM GOES SO FAR
I remember people who were unemployed applying for jobs... any jobs and during the interview process when asked if they could perform the necessary duties would respond that they could do anything when called upon. WRONG ANSWER. What can you do, would do and … (25 comments)

money: PERFECT TIMING IN THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS? - 08/19/13 06:58 AM
Coming as close as you can to the old tried and true saying..BUY LOW and SELL HIGH gives you a glimpse of perfect timing. Yes, there are seasons in Real Estate. Right now it is a sellers market and we just came off a buyers market. Trying to navigate successfully in the seasons and markets takes expertise, luck, experience and a good team. However, there are no guarantees in life
PLACE YOUR BET?
Perfect timing would be where investors sense their product isn't moving for top dollar and decide to lower their prices and at the same time this happens when … (8 comments)

money: MONEY TAKES MONEY TO MAKE MONEY - 06/29/13 06:58 AM
I have worked with investors who are seasoned and have a trained eye. They scour and roam the Real Estate countrysides (and other places) looking for potential deals to PLANT or SEED their money in.....But it did not start out that way.....You see it takes years of saving money in some instances to even consider playing the INVESTMENT game. Then perhaps you may pool with others and venture out there to do investor. Money that you have worked hard for called "SWEAT" money cannot be just gambled away.

Just like you see all these neat little gadgets … (12 comments)
