I travel a lot.  About half the time, I travel alone.  And I had never given hotel safety a second thought—that was, until I read the book “Clear Boundaries” by Christine Beckwith and Jessica Peterson.  The pages (54-56) about hotel safety really opened my eyes to the things I was doing wrong.  How to select the right room.  Not checking for danger signs.  While the book has a ton of great information regarding women and safety on ALL levels, I wanted to share with you some of the things to consider when it comes to staying at hotels.  And it…
I don’t know about you, but when I get an invitation to a party, all kinds of thoughts go through this brain of mine. I’m excited. I wonder who’s going to be there.   What do I need to bring? And the all-important question—what am I going to wear?  Then I started thinking—why not “dress up” for a party every day—and be excited about who you are going to meet and what you can bring to the party (meaning helping someone with their mortgage or meet referral partners).

When I was growing up, mother only used our “good dishes” during holidays or special occasions.     And that tradition of using the good dishes is passed down from generation to generation—thinking that the ONLY time you should use the china and silverware is during special times of the year.     We have all had friends who have been diagnosed with cancer.  A debilitating disease.  Mental illness.

Let’s face it.  Women are stereotyped.  We are judged by our clothing.  Our hair and makeup.  By the way we handle ourselves professionally.  In sales, there are certain things that women should be conscious of if they want to be perceived as “professional”.  When you talk, try to stay away from using a “high-pitched” voice When traveling for business, don’t carry too much luggage Don’t get into cat fights with other women (in meetings) Don’t gossip Don’t dress provocatively Don’t play the “ditzy woman” game Don’t try to act like a man Don’t be a male basher To quote Forrest…
Social media is a double-edged sword. You can get yourself a boatload of leads. Or you can get yourself and your company in a whole lot of trouble. And, by the way, nothing is “secret” on social media.  If you private message or chat, or if you delete comments, someone may take a screen shot and share it with the world (and the regulators). Tammy Butler, MortgageCurrentcy.com, shared some of the “don’ts,” not only to stay compliant, but to ensure that you are creating a stellar reputation—online. Stay away from “rant” groups No politics No mention of religion (Fair lending…
