I came across info on Brian Tracy while reading a book by Mark Victor Hansen.         All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose. Brian Tracy        Communication is a skill that you can learn. It's like riding a bicycle or typing. If you're willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of evry part of your life.  Brian Tracy  Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all. Brian Tracy

This came across my e-mail on Friday and I couldn't wait to share it today.         It is not by accident that the happiest people are those who make a conscious effort to live useful lives. Their happiness, of course, is not a shallow exhilaration where life is one continuos intoxicating party.       Rather, their happiness is a deep sense of inner peace that comes when they believe their lives have meaning and that they are making a difference for good in the world.- Ernest A. Fitzgerald

The Greenwood Middle school track is the host for the Relay For Life Of Greenwood.  Saturday June 19th and 20th from 9 am to 9 am Sunday.  There are 28 teams participating celebrating those that they lost or are survivors! A great day to spend time with your family and loved ones and enjoy some of the entertainment and festivities. A little history:  The Relay started in 1985 when a surgeon from Washington ran and walked around a track for 24 hours straight trying to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  Today the relay is one of the largest charity events to help end this disease.  Over 3.5 million people participate in this movement annually.

  A student at a Greenwood IN high school sued the school district saying a school-sanctioned prayer at graduation was unconstitutional.  A majority of students voted in favor of a prayer.  What is that I said???  A majority!!  Part of what America's principles have been founded on, a democracy.  The Greenwood High School's principal in the past has required students to submit their speeches in advance for review.  This year they are lifting this practice.  I only hope and pray that some students take this and run with it, not in profanity, but to speak of never allowing the majority to be defeated again when it comes to prayer in school. There are enough drugs, violence, bullying, etc. in school, without taking something that the majority in this high school wanted, voted on and believ...

Soccer in Greenwood Indiana! It is that time of year again, and I couldn't be more excited.   We had our first soccer game for the season yesterday. It was perfect soccer weather!  The field was muddy from rain the prior evening, but that makes soccer all the more fun! My real estate partner (Pam) and I coach a youth team together.  We have done this for numerous seasons.  I took last season off, and am glad to be back again.  I played soccer in middle school and high school, and love this sport.  As we watch the children play, it is amazing to see some of them progress from season to season.  Coaching is a commitment for sure, but each season after the first game, I remember win or lose why I love doing this.  Yesterday we won 13 to 0, but I am not naive to think that couldn't happen t...

The City of Greenwood has now decided that it would be to limit access and to route traffic on the busy SR 135 corridor to service roads whenever possible. Well, duh! Currently, one can exit and enter this major north/south artery via multiple access points: side streets, traffic signals, driveways, fast food drive throughs, etc. Yes, there are some turn lanes but not nearly enough. And yes, there are some sevice roads, but again, not nearly enough. Now Greenwood, Indiana does not nearly have the traffic congestion of L.A., D.C., NYC, Chicago, or even the north side of Indianapolis. But during rush hour it is getting to be a real pain in the behind to get from one end of Greenwood to the other on this road. It is also getting more and more dangerous as people are trying to pull out and ...

Where are Mortgage Rates Going in 2010? It's one of the most frequently asked questions and also one of the most difficult to answer.  Many experts are saying they anticipate rates to go up because the Governement is expected to stop pumping money into Mortgage Backed Securities -- But it's a complicated subject and even the "experts" don't see eye to eye. We found a great video that explains what Mortgage Backed Securities are and how they effect the rates.  It's the easiest to understand explanation we've found.    Draw your own conclusions!

Super Bowl Excitement in Indianapolis - GO COLTS! Yes, world, we are excited.  We are hopeful.  We are confident! It’s that time when the entire Colts Nation holds its collective breath and prays for just… one…more… victory.  Super Bowl parties are being planned in homes and offices far and wide.  In fact, we just got back from our Greenwood Keller Williams office tailgate luncheon where even the hallway was converted into a mini football field complete with blue walls and a field goal kicking competition!  Discussions around the water cooler are about Dwight Freeney’s ankle, Bob Sanders future, and contract negotiations for Peyton’s new deal.  Much is being said about the Saints…usually with a bit of anxiety mixed into the details.  Purdue fans are gloating over the collegiate backgrou...
