King Data

You could have a kingdom. Data is king. Seriously, let’s put this King Data on the throne because without Data our kingdom is worthless. You process almost an infinite amount of data each day. Your bodily senses are data receivers. Through site, smell, taste and...

Eye Contact

I’m a bit sad. I went to the gas station and my entire transaction took place with no eye contact at any point. I went to the grocery store yesterday and was amazed that I was given two seconds of eye contact by the cashier before I paid. I am sad that people...

The exit plan

I was talking to a friend the other day, one who has started some great business ventures but none of them have ever came through to fruition.  We started talking about failure, and how he has failed more times that most people because he at least attempted to get...

The Flow of Things

I love meeting new agents who are excited to do so many different things; I know they get overwhelmed at the amount of information that they have given to them on a daily basis and let’s face it – starting out is one of the most exciting times in a real...

Growing

When times change, some things that should have been kept in a cycle end up getting tossed to the side to make way for progress.  Some things shouldn’t change.  Not even 100 years ago the term “Apprentice” was used a lot more in terms of becoming a...

The Difference

A hammer is a tool that does what you tell it to.  Hit that nail into that board.  I will use my muscle and force to drive the hammer into you (the nail) until I deem you fit and I will do the same with all your buddy nails in the box.  The nail has little choice but...
