The top photo here is the old tile in our Elmwood Park property. We were tempted to keep the old tile because it was nice, simple pattern, and in such good shape. The question when doing a rehab is always...will it enhance the property to change it and help bring a better price to the sale at the end of the project, or...is it a place to save some money, and not make the change? Ultimately, we decided to make a change, and we selected the tile in the photo below. Although it has a bit of an old world look to it, it is one of many new patterns that have recently been shown in the marketplace. They are old world patterns, brought back to contemporary life. The colors in this tile will blend much better with the color scheme of the rehab that we have planned. More photos will be shown in the project section as we move along with the project.

Ask yourself what things you can give up, in order to achieve success.
Can you change your sleep habits? Get up an hour earlier?
Can you watch less TV? Turn it off earlier at night?
Work out more regularly so you gain more energy to do your work?
We all know that SOMETHING has to change in our daily lives if we want different results in our business. Most of us are comfortable in our lack of success because it's where we are, and what feels familiar.
Remember about "thinking outside the box?" It's time. Step outside that comfort zone and decide what can change for you.
Make some changes.
Create your new success!!
We are all more capable than we think. We constantly sell ourselves short. There are big opportunities out there awaiting us, and there are small opportunities. It doesn't matter.
Does the opportunity speak to us?
Does it sound like something that we've always wanted to do?
Does it feel good to us?
Have other people been telling us for a long time that we could do it?
What's been holding us back?
Nonsense. Take a chance. Go for it.
Life can be amazing if we say YES to more opportunities.

Millionaire Investor & Instructor shared insider investor strategies with us on Friday night & all day Saturday.
While Chris is a master wholesaler, he discussed current trends, current conditions, and the political climate.
He discussed challenges, and what makes a deal. He warned about the "gotchas!" Chris covered myths and truths about real estate, including the biggest lies being told today.
This time spent learning from a master was well spent. He was generous about answering the questions that we all had for him. Make it a point to come to our next two-day real estate intensive. It'll be well worth you time as you learn from the best.
I borrowed this from the Toltec Spirit website. I love these 4 agreements. They need to be practiced constantly!
In the best selling book The Four Agreements don Miguel Ruiz gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Adopting and committing to these agreements is simple. Actually living and keeping these Four Agreements can be one of the hardest things you will ever do. It can also be one of the most life changing things you will ever do.
As you practice living these four practices your life will dramatically change. In the beginning these new habits will be challenging and you will lapse countless times. With practice these agreements become integrated into your being and every area of your life and become easy habits to keep.
The Four Agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
