Riding in Car with Carra! A review of Cosmic Cow Pie... connecting the dots by Carra Riley

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty GREC# 169695

Or that could be riding through the cosmic cow pie with Carra.

I just finished "Cosmic Cow Pie... Connecting the Dots" by Carra Riley.  It was awesome.  On so many levels I really enjoyed the book. 

Not only did I have a few "light bulb" moments on new, better ways to handle things... I feel I know so much about Carra and her family and really enjoyed getting to know them. 

If you are just starting in real estate or frankly any carrer where you are dealing with the public, reading this book is a MUST. From her 30 years of experience in real estate Carra Riley learned lots of little secrets on better ways to handle situations which she's willing to share with you.

On the other hand, I just loaned it to another of the agents in my office who has been selling real estate for over 40 years... she had some light bulb moments too.  So even if you've been doing business the same way for over 20 years, do you really think you couldn't use a little tweaking and advise.  I've been in Real Estate for 18 years now and I will never stop learning.

The principles in the book are simple, easy to follow and just might change the way you view something, the change may be small... like mine... I'm a very goal oriented person, but I never felt a need to write them down.  I'm going to try writing them down and see if that will keep me more focused on obtaining my short term goals.  I also just know I'm going to get tickled next time a clerk in a store or a waitress really screws up... I'll think of you Carra, while I laugh at them.

I put a new book in the CD player yesterday on the way home from work.  And this morning on my ride to and from church, I found myself not paying attention because I was missing Carra Riley.  Now I'm off to practice up on my communication skills knowing SWSWSWN!  (and if you want to know what that means-get the book).  You can get the book here!  You won't be disappointed.  I certainly wasn't.

Melinda- was a really great book.  I prefer books on CD because I like to make the most of my travel tlime.

Mary- It was good.  And I really just feel like Carra is part of the family after riding around with her talking to me for a week.  I just love it when authors read their own work.  Makes it so personal.

Ms. Tammy,

I have a few little tears in my eyes after reading your review.  I know you would not have written that if you did not believe it... so thank you so much.  I love hearing what people get out of the book and not really knowing me... NOW you know me and every thing about me... I had a 65 year old neighbor tell me.. she thought all that stuff but she NEVER would have written it down to share.... she was buying a couple books and a couple CD's for friends so I am thinking this is working for people. 

I haven't gotten the formal launch together yet.. so stay tuned, you will be the readers in the KNOW..

Melinda, Mary, Nick and Sheldon..... if you take Tammy's word it sounds like you will not be disappointed.  I am happy to send you a pdf of the book if you like.. I had made that offer to my activerain friends.. so let me know, I'll e-mail it.

Jane, Thanks for showing us the way :)

Thank you again Ms. Tammy... I love reading your posts!

Carra- I am so looking forward to your launch and helping spread the word about it.  Hmmmm will you be a book signing at a borders near me?

 

Jane- There is combination of letters to express in writing the sound I made when I saw your comment.  You may not be pefect, but you certainly are a delight and joy to have as a friend.  I just love your wicked sense of humor.

Tammy, That is the 2nd time in the last 3 weeks I have heard about this book so I guess that means I need to get reading!  Reason I can remember the title is because everytime I hear it makes me think of a Moon Pie (yummy)...go figure! lol
