My wife had “girls date night” on Friday and so I watched “The Lion King” with my five year old, Phoebe.  A line we all remember, “Hakuna Matata”, is behind today’s message.   As professionals, it’s important to remember that problems are in the past, and solutions are right now.  It’s tough to f...

Yesterday I received a phone call from a Realtor that brought a huge smile to my face.  As she explained how she had just sold a home I could literally feel her jumping up and down with excitement.  Like so many, she struggles a bit with calling prospects.  A few months ago her client, a buyer, m...

At the age of 19 my dad had me read a book by Napoleon Hill, "Think and GROW RICH".  It was first published in 1937, the first of its kind.  A self-help book for those seeking success in whatever the endeavor may be.  The book was revolutionary and to this day remains one of my top 5 business boo...

Last weekend while visiting with some friends, swimming in the pool, and having a little brisket I couldn’t help but notice my 16-year old son was having a great time with our friends 15-year old daughter.  They were sitting together poolside and “texting” away on their phones with big smiles all...
