I Can See Clearly Now

As of this morning, my house is officially on the market. (Please buy it.) We’ve lived here for nearly 11 years, and with our youngest child due to graduate from high school in June, my wife Linda and I have decided to downsize to something smaller. As you might imagine, we’ve spent the past several months getting our house “ready,” a term which, unfortunately, correlates highly with “expensive.” Listen To This Post Examples include, granite countertops for the master bath, […] Click to read more…

 

Be More Likeable, Get More Clients

I got an email out of the blue this past Monday. Well, not really “out of the blue” … it was from somebody I know. But it was unexpected, nonetheless.

Icemaker, Icemaker, Make Me Some Ice

And, as any self-respecting, 21st century refrigerator must have, a water and ice dispenser on the outside. Like I said, cool. Listen To This […] Click to read more…

 

Bio-Luminescence

I’ve got a toilet in my garage. I don’t say this to impress you; I’m just telling you the facts. It’s in my garage awaiting pick-up for donation because, as I mentioned in a recent newsletter, my wife Linda and I will soon be downsizing out of our current home. As a result, we’ve been doing lots and lots (and lots) of work to get our house ready for sale. Examples include… … newly painted kitchen cabinets … polishing of […] Click to read more…
