Back On Track

Today I did something I haven't done in nearly three months. This morning my alarm went off at 5:30 am, I rolled myself out of bed and I went for a run. That's correct, I woke up early to exercise. I couldn't believe it had been so long since I made my last early morning … Continue reading Back On Track

How To: A Lesson From Steve Jobs

On Saturday morning I sat and drank my coffee and was scrolling through my twitter timeline when I came across a tweet that celebrated the five-year anniversary of when Apple launched their iPhone. Five years ago, if I recall correctly, my phone of choice was the Palm Treo, and I couldn't care less about what … Continue reading How To: A Lesson From Steve Jobs

The reality of this sales game has changed and buyers seem busier than ever, so how do you … Continue reading SNAP To It

The workshop was part of a Mastery series run by Richard Dolan (Richard's website) as part of Real Estate Investment Network's (REIN) monthly meetings. These Mastery … Continue reading I Want In!!

C is for Confidence

My daughter has a toy train that she loves. She can sit and ride around on it, it sings songs, makes train noises and has five buttons (A through E) that cycles through different responses when pushed. The first of which is a pleasant female voice saying the colour while the second option resembles "D … Continue reading C is for Confidence
