Which Way Is Up?
by Ron Reed
It takes lots of energy to move upward; Energy requires belief and commitment, along with a laser-like focus and persistence.
"The information we allow into consciousness... is in fact, what determines the content and quality of life." ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
If I asked you to stop, right now, and rate yourself and your business/job/career, right now at this very moment, how well would you do? Be honest. You can't lie to yourself. How well are you doing, today, right now?
"I'm doing fine/well, but It I could be better" you might say. Or you … (0 comments)

Change Will Do You Good "It's not the strongest of the species that survives nor the most intelligent; but the one most responsive to change" - Charles R Darwin There's a group I ran across on Facebook, "I will not participate in a recession." Interesting name for a group. The title being self-explanatory.   At first, I got a big laugh out it. However, once the initial humor wore off, I began to think that maybe, just maybe, the joke was on me. Follow my thinking for a moment; "I will not participate in a recession." Hmmm... Really? Do you and I actually have a … (0 comments)

ron reed: Bridging the Gap to Success: Dream It, Plan It, Do It... Issue 954 - 05/20/09 12:01 AM
Dream It, Plan It, Do It... I recently had a commercial client confide in me about the difficulty she's having getting her new business started. She's been planning to 'open the doors' now for several years but keeps running into roadblock after roadblock.  Seems as if this is no random subject these days. For that reason, I decided to publish my response to her for the benefit of all. Hopefully you can apply some of these tips to your own real estate business:  "_______, I had similar issues with starting my own company. A marriage falling apart, working for a buddy who filed … (0 comments)

Salsa or Ketchup?
By Seth Godin 
Remember average?
It's the brand marketer at a packaged-goods company refusing to sell whole-wheat bread, because the average person doesn't like it. Or the dietitian at the airline who says it should serve only peanuts, because the average person won't eat a corn chip.
Average made America great. Average was the mass market, the sweet spot, the high-volume, high-profit, churn-'em-out-and-move-on middle.
Average is dead.
America's best-selling beer isn't Budweiser or Miller. It's other. Salsa now outsells ketchup. There are so many alternatives, so many distribution channels and so many different kinds of consumers that average … (1 comments)

Bridging the Gap to Real Estate Success: $8,000 tax credit... Is it really the answer? (edit/delete)
$8,000 tax credit for 1st time homebuyers....
They NAR was vigilant in it's efforts to get this one added into the stimulis bill. But is this really the answer to fill up all the vacant and vacated houses in your farm area? The $7,500 tax credit got very little response. Folks aren't buying homes for various reasons:
Many who qualify are afraid they won't have a job to make the mortgage payments 1,000's of others no longer qualify for a mortgage (even FHA has raised it's score requirements … (0 comments)

What's Stopping You?
by Brian Peart
There's a new mortgage company in my office complex. They don't own in here, they rent. To my knowledge, they did not even exist a year ago. They are a small mortgage company I have never heard of until about 4 months ago.
Their "marketing" is sticking those little signs on the side of the road with their company name, something like "100% financing" and a number.  They have polluted the area with these signs. I mean every street corner on every little dink side street, not just the major spots. They have been doing it now for 3 months.
