Proud Papa

Hello all,

"Proud Papa"

RE/MAX International does two main events each year. The Realtor conference which was in Vegas and the Broker/Owner conference which is being held in Washington DC this August. It is a two day event that features networking, guest speakers, but mostly it is training sessions for the Broker/Owners on business practices, Re/MAX Systems... Our Mark Strosnider was contacted by RE/MAX International and was asked to sit on a panel at the conference to discuss and train other Broker/Owners on recruiting. Mark's skill set in this field has been has been a tremendous benefit to the company and I am so happy to see him get the national recognition that he deserves. Next time you see Mark please give him a pat on the back for a job well done. Best part for me is I get to sit in the audience like a "Proud Papa" watching my competition in awe of Mark on the stage!

If you have clients looking for new construction Clarksburg is where it is happening. Below is a flyer for an open house there tomorrow. Good stuff and I encourage everyone to get there if they can.

Enjoy the coffee,

"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."

~ Carl Bard


Sometimes we look back on past events and wish that we had a "do over." While we should try to avoid regrets, it's still a good idea to analyze what we've done and try to understand how we might have done things better. Of course, there's no changing the past, but that doesn't mean that the past can't or won't change our future.

Maybe there's a relationship that has deteriorated over the years. Perhaps by now you've forgotten who was right or who was wrong, or maybe it's just a question of having lost touch. This is not a case of needing a brand new start, but of reworking the ending.

Since you can't "edit" the past, start writing a new chapter right now! While you have no control over what you have done, you do have complete control over what you are going to do. It can be very empowering when you realize that you actually have it in your command to create the future and the relationships that you want.

And it's not just about relationships - it can be about building wealth if you've squandered opportunities in the past. You simply have to make a commitment and forgive yourself for actions you cannot change. If your dream is to retire in comfort in ten, twenty, or thirty years, analyze your past spending and saving, educate yourself or consult a professional, and take steps now to create the results you want.

Whatever your goals for the future, your real power comes from letting go of the past. Stop worrying about what you have said and done (or haven't said or done) and start focusing on what you will say and do. Turn your negative energies toward positive actions and you'll amaze yourself!

Popular writer and adventurer Louis L'Amour said it well, "Everyone has it within his power to say, this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow." Here's to the future!
