As a fellow Lover of Holiday Time, I wanted to share with you some exciting news for the New Year.
It seems most people establish New Year’s resolutions, but for whatever reason they fall short of keeping them. Each year I highlight a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I wanted to share that with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift; more on the book in a moment.
Before I share the book details, here is my TWO PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!

THE GIVING SEASON- One of the Core Philosophies at our company is this: The size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through. You could even say that ‘giving starts the receiving process.’ The point though is NOT to give to receive, just go give! After all, this is the giving season.
With the current year coming to a close, celebration of Christmas and other Faith Driven Holiday Celebrations all mean different things to different people, but most always represent,
joy, peace, gratitude, and hopefulness.
A GIVING SPIRIT- If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike at other times of the year. Why can’t it be that way every day of every year? It can! It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help.
If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate company you can trust!

Thank You, And...
The month of November brings about an extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valuable part of our business. As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, plan Thanksgiving get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure a fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for.
Gratitude though is an attitude that is contagious!
Unfortunately, many homeowners are desperate to exit their current home. Actually, loathing this time of year as it adds to the frustration of not being settled for the Holiday’s. You may know someone or a family that fits this description.
Here’s where you and I can HELP!

Moms and Halloween!
It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expense! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Mom’s are involved in celebrating with their families.
What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like. Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin seeds to making a scary straw man for the front porch. ...

Labor Day is All Wrong!
In case you aren’t sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around I wonder why it’s named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.
Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week. These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour work day. They also focused on getting workers more days o ...
