The 11th Hour Tarry Stay was well-reknowned for putting things off, as she easily lost interest in most everything. From knitting projects to portrait paintings, that were strewed throughout the small, cramped 1-bedroom apartment she leased. Perhaps, with more space, she thought, I could get organized and have an artist's studio and become inspired to finish the several pieces that were in-progress. Calling a recommended professional to show her houses, each property was met with indecision and a devil-may-care attitude. Thinking she had plenty of time to make a choice of cottages within the area she desired, one by one they sold, just outside of the ability to make an offer. Finally, after seeing 42 houses,  she found one she absolutely, truly loved! "I need to sleep on such a big deci...

Easy DUH's it! 🤣 How many times have you done something silly or tried looking for the phone in your hand or the glasses perched on top of the head? It's as easy as walking into a room to get something and forgetting immediately, so you have to backtrack to the starting point to try and remember it! Years ago, I borrowed someone else's car because mine was in the shop. One night after work, I unlocked the car, sat in the seat and tried to start the engine. The key wouldn't fit in the ignition and as I looked at the car next to the one I was in, it dawned on me that I was in someone else's car! That was a WanDUH moment!  🤣 And then there was the time, I dropped my car off at the shop to get new tires all around. Distracted, I thought my husband had pulled into the lot, opened the passeng...

Sticks and Stones and All ThatThe saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." was used to dismiss taunting and teasing when children were bullied on the Elementary playground. It created a sense of empowerment.Cyber-bullying on social media is the adult version that has taken the place of the school yard. Words are often used as sharp weapons that can cut a target, causing emotional pain and distress. It creates a sense of empowerment.I always thought that words do hurt, dependent on intention but realize the phrase was a tool, used to help develop a thick skin against malicious people. In this present world, sharp words with ill intent can be combative, akin to a full-on slap in the face to the person on the receiving end.The power of words carry a lot ...

You Can't Make A Cat Walk Backwards! Working toward strengths with a can-do mindset, achieves set goals. Like a cat, it's better to focus on agility by adapting quickly to circumstances rather than being stuck in old, daily routines or the only 'one way' of doing things. It tends to be counterproductive. In any market, there's no time to be still, business must always be pursued, akin to a cat chasing a mouse for a meal. A missed opportunity never deters the honed-in instinct, so taking a different approach might be what is needed for success! Zipping here, zagging there, taking little time to rest and then moving on to create a different strategy, confidently knowing its own expectations will eventually be met. Once the goal is accomplished, finding a purr-fectly, sunny place to relax ...

Go To Helen Waite! 🔥 Not all wrongs will be righted, that is just a sad, fact of life. Some people intentionally wreak havoc, cheat others, manipulate, threaten, steal at whim or cause mental or physical harm when doggedly pursuing what they selfishly desire, at the expense of everyone else. It has been said to forgive those who trespass against us. I truly believed that for a long time until realizing, most of them are repeat transgressors who feel no remorse, whatsoever. For everyone who resembles the description above, you're free to go to Helen Waite. I will not be joining you. It's too hot for my liking! 🔥

Eyes wide open folks, EYES WIDE OPEN! 👀 Everyone struggles now and then. Becoming paralyzed or denying reality, benefits no one in business or personal circles. Taking a singular path that leads to resolution is recommended, rather than remain in a bad mental state.  Every real estate market carries with it many success stories along with dismal failure rates. Rather than become immersed in the negative aspects of missing out on business or blaming others for failed opportunities, seek out ways to move forward with confidence. Find a mentor. If fairly new to the industry, rely on the broker for training sessions and insight into becoming more versed in the sales process. Sitting on the brokerage floor to take walk-ins might gain clients. Hire a coach. Take some classes with some well-kn...

"Must be nice!" harrumphed The Green Eyed Monster. Many people want either success, wealth or fame, regardless of their actions or contributions toward achieving either status. They breed resentment, thinking they are owed, that wishes and dreams should be magically fulfilled.  Those who hold an entitled mindset often snub people who have amassed their fortunes. Successful people continue their careers by embracing challenges, seeking knowledge while learning new skills. Improving rates high. 📈 Long-term success is gained by self-motivated means. Not living with parents, sucking the life out of them or 'borrowing' money from them as a temporary means of survival until the next pay day. 🔑 Wealth management means discovering positive ways and means to be self-sustaining, supporting onesel...

Catch my drift? Rather interesting what a two hours drive time from St. George, Utah to Cedar Breaks National Monument in Iron County can reveal. We considered there might be a trace of snow left on the ground but 13 foot drifts wasn't even a thought!!! Despite what some people may believe, Washington County, Utah has many varieties of palm trees that grow in city & county parks, on golf courses, residential & commercial landscapes, common areas as well, throughout the area.   The St. George, Utah area also boasts 13 golf courses (soon 14), to please the golf enthusiast in everyone, year 'round.

Rainbows come to those who bait!  A quick plan to fish for the day at Panguitch Lake turned into quite an adventure! Leaving the house at 4:30 AM, we diligently watched for the white tails of deer along the sides of the back road, heading toward our destination. A plump, porcupine lumbered across the road in the headlights, then caught sight of two female elk and their male escort on a steep hillside as we continued to climb Cedar Mountain. Just as the sun was rising, we began settling in for the day. The temperature was 29 degrees upon arrival and soon warmed up to a 65 high. What a glorious sight of the reflection off the lake! I had to snap a quick shot to remember this wonderful day with My Honey. We ended up catching our limit!  It's been said that...Good things come to those who w...

🇺🇸 Honoring The Fallen on Memorial Day 🇺🇸 Memorial Day dates back to the Civil War. Because of the heavy losses, it acted as a way to honor service people who died serving in the U.S. military. It was originally called Decoration Day. In 1868. Major General John A. Logan, leader of the Grand Army of the Republic (a group of Union veterans), declared May 30th a day to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers. Many cities and towns already had similar traditions. Logan's proclamation helped unify them into a national day of remembrance.  On May 30th. In 1971, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act made Memorial Day a federal holiday on the last Monday of May. So, Memorial Day started as a way to remember those lost in the Civil War and transformed into a day to honor all who are lost w...

The Whit Sisters Hold an Open House Event Uncle T. Whit passed away, leaving an old mansion to his nieces, the Whit sisters. The house offered rustic charm with vintage vibes, peeling wallpaper and all. Eventually, they decided to forgo the cost of renovating the aging property and sell it without hiring an experienced real estate agent.  Instead of simplifying, at the advice of a home stager, they left it a cluttered mess, including dusty, aging furniture that looked dirty and unkempt. Pictures of The Thunder Down Under event were up on the wall, showing dollar bills and g-strings. Other photos were of a recent visit to the local, nudist beach. 😳 Despite being warned by a local real estate agent to do Open House events without serving alcohol, the sisters decided that a few mimosa’s, b...

Responsible Accounting Matters for Long-Term Success Commingling funds will get a real estate agent in big, BIG trouble. Even the description screams... 🚫🚫🚫 "Don't Do it!" 🚫🚫🚫 Placing earnest money in a trust account with the brokerage or with a title company is expected, not in an agent's checking account over the weekend for convenience sake or because the office has closed for the day. In that case, put it somewhere for safekeeping until it can be deposited properly. 🚫🚫🚫 Or Don't Take It! 🚫🚫🚫 Wiring money has become so easy, taking the funds out of the agent's hands, placing it directly where it belongs. One responsibility to keep in mind, is discussing the Wire Fraud Disclosure that warns against online crime. Clients must read, sign and date, verifying that they fully understand th...
