Kahlil Gibran, Chris Brogan, Nikki Buckelew and You: Rebels with a Cause

The Beauty of a Soulful, Real Estate Rebellion

Do you have a little rebel in ya? What about a Rebel Yell aching to scream forth?

It's funny how similar thoughts and philosophies can jump out at you in surprising succession. Last night, I read a portion of Kahlil Gibran's book “Spirits Rebellious” in which a character beseeches a village of peasants to rebel against the tyrants who have forced them into serfdom.

Then – only about 12 hours later – I received a weekly email newsletter from business relationship and Internet marketing guru Chris Brogan with the title “How Do …

Real Estate Sales and the Law of Least Effort

Written on May 19, 2013 at 5:00 pm

If you have ever read or listened to Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, you have probably heard of the fourth law, The Law of Least Effort.

This law says that nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease and carefree abandonment. It’s a lesson that nature has tried to teach us, but many of us just ignore it as if we are the exception to all nature.

As Deepak Chopra says in his audio series,

“Grass doesn’t try to grow... it just grows.”

“Birds don’t try to fly...they just fly.”

“Fish don’t try to swim...they just swim.”

“It is the …

Spreading SoulFire

Written on March 4, 2013 at 9:52 am

Just a short and sweet note of appreciation today. It's been so amazing to watch the SoulFire Series spread across the nation. Last month we were in Pensacola, FL and San Antonio, TX and this month in St Louis, MO - sharing SoulFire. People are calling me regularly asking about SoulFire coaching and training events.

What I am beginning to realize is that people need it. We all need it. We need to know that life is full of all the things we want and are searching for - fun, love, adventure, security, abundance, health, and freedom. It's right there …

How Much Is Enough?

High - achievers often believe that more is always better. 

They use this belief to create both their successes and their excesses.

Wanting more and obtaining more produces more.  Because societies often measure success quantitatively rather than qualitatively, people who do more and get more are deemed to be successful and honored if not revered by society.

The “success” of more also often creates a sense of “wunderkind” or “ubermensch."  The super successful believe in their infallibility and or their untouchability.  We see this on a daily basis in the …

2013 is the Year to Tap Into Your SoulFire

Written on December 30, 2012 at 10:38 am

I’m curious...

Do you wake up each day with fire in your belly?

Is your Monday morning full of energy and excitement about the week ahead?

Are you looking at 2013 with a sense of anticipation and passion?

 

I sure hope so. I want that for you SO much.

When I look in the rearview mirror I can see the many phases of my life including roles I’ve held, careers experimented with, and people I have worked alongside. It is easy to spot the times where I had SoulFire lighting me up and times when my spark had been …

Reflecting and Projecting

Written on December 2, 2012 at 11:44 am

 

Today is one of those days that I find myself attempting to live in the moment, but instead making my way into the past as well as the future.

Going with the flow.

That has been my mantra for a while now.

Definition: Paying attention to the synchronicity in my life and doing what comes easy in the moment. Going with the flow. 

At this particular moment the flow is taking me toward reflecting and projecting.

Not to be confused with planning and goal setting.

This is more like “visioneering” as Danielle LaPorte calls it. I intellectually know that …

Measuring Happiness

Written on November 25, 2012 at 10:11 am

How happy are you? How happy are clients with your business? What about the people that work with you on your team or in your agency? Are you measuring their happiness?

Well, you probably should be, and here's why.

I was intrigued recently when I read a blog put together by Lisa Parrett, a client of mine in Indianapolis. Lisa's inspiration was a video from a 2010 TED conference, a presentation put together by Chip Conley, a well-known San Francisco hotelier.

Chip presents us with a concept known as GNH, short for Gross National Happiness. And, of course, that's a …

Balancing Face Time with Facebook – My Personal Challenge

Written on July 2, 2012 at 12:46 pm

 

I don’t know about you, but I am finding it more and more challenging to “get out and see the people!” That is in fact how Ihave built every successful business I have owned.

It would be easy to say that there just isn’t enough time, but that would be a flat out lie. There is plenty of time. The fact of the matter (for me anyway) is that it is just easier (and cooler lately) to just hang out on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

I get sucked in. I admit it. 

But is it as effective? Maybe it …
