Where did the last year go?!

  I have been a delinquent blogger. Life came rushing at me and the clock spun faster than ever.  Here is a brief recap of my MBA, travels, and life. Seattle In January, our cohort went to Seattle for a week to visit different companies.  To name drop ;), we went to Amazon, Microsoft, andContinue reading “Where did the last year go?!”

Forget the “how” chase the “why”.

Week SIX is rolled up and I actually have about 20 minutes to recap.  It is currently a whirlwind of assignments and due dates with a daily battle to eat lunch.  Not that bad of a diet plan but a recalibration for sure. Orientation was a long two weeks that had lots of teaming andContinue reading “Forget the “how” chase the “why”.”

MBA at 40?!?

Well, not actually 40 but knocking on that door with increasing intensity.  It is true though.  I am going to start my MBA program at the University of Oregon in ONE week at 39.  You know that song, Once in a Lifetime?  And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack.  And you mayContinue reading “MBA at 40?!?”

I jumped on the video bandwagon. How to use video, SEO and other little ideas.

  Realtors have to FIND business.  That may seem contrary to how easy it looks, wink.  Finding business as a new agent is like feeling your way through a pitch black underground cave.  It can bring up some fear issues.  Maybe that’s just me.

WeContinue reading “Surprises of Video Touring & Buying Out-of-State.”

First Anniversary, out of the classroom and into real estate.

As I look back on my first year away from school, I am contemplative.  Reflection makes a great teacher and some habits do not go away no matter what you do.  I have a teacher streak in me that does not disappear in my new profession.  I have handouts for my clients that I useContinue reading “First Anniversary, out of the classroom and into real estate.”

I cheated on my hair dresser. And I am so sorry.

I know, I know!  I’m a cad.  I am a dog.  A no good scoundrel. What can I say?  I want what I want when I want it.  I am so first world. Here’s the story about hair, well my hair and its current iteration. Let me preface the story. Hawaii. I had the bestContinue reading “I cheated on my hair dresser. And I am so sorry.”

We drove to Standing Rock, North Dakota for Thanksgiving.

After an overwhelmingly successful donation drive, we had two vehicles filled to capacity, a U-Haul trailer and four drivers on the road to deliver.  I had never driven beyond the middle of Montana and oh my, North Dakota is far from Eugene, Oregon. The items we were delivering to the water protectors varied.  We hadContinue reading “We drove to Standing Rock, North Dakota for Thanksgiving.”
