Are You Stuck?

Stuck in a Rut?

There seems to be an epidemic in my ecosystem. It’s what I call the ‘Stuck-n-a-Rut’ syndrome. Perhaps it’s the gray skies or the cyclical housing stagnation. Nonetheless, it’s the same murmur across all industries in which I serve. There’s no discrimination. No one is feeling on top of the world right now.

For those of us who have been around the corner a few times, there is nothing spectacularly different about this year in particular yet it seems to be an especially ‘blah’ January.

As a side note

After listening to the State of the Union Address last night I realized yet another attribute for the systemic dismay and marginal business lethargy of my peers. [Oh yes I did just go there!]

Now, I’m not exactly known for my optimism and rah! rah! In fact, I think I can be a downright curmudgeon most days. But lately I’ve found myself donning the pom poms and feeding happy syrup to my peeps to a degree far outside my comfort zone and I needed some rah! of my own for goodness sakes!

Another side note

Some turn to wine or yoga when stressed [both of which are high on my priority list]. But for people like me, stress drives a willing retreat to the bowels of cyberspace where the hands of time seem to stop and research becomes almost as yummy as, well, wine and yoga [if you like that sort of thing]. It’s not un

common to sit down at my computer and look up 20 hours later. It’s in times of retreat when I gather the best content for curriculum and business workshops

[My Evernote account reflects a very stressful year!].

Factor in 15 hour days preparing for 2 new concept launches, a website launch, impending changes in federal policies, and a whole lot of incestuous political shenanigans from the ‘bad seeds’ in my industry… it’s been a long year already my friends!

That’s my ‘stuck in the rut’ rant…here’s the good stuff…

In searching for a solution for entrepreneurs suffering from ‘Stuck-in-a-Rut syndrome’ I stumbled upon the blog one of my son’s business professors, Doan Winkel. Coincidentally, I started him following last year before Riley was in his class.

Anyway, today’s blog for entrepreneurs was about LEGACY. This topic is important to me for many personal reasons but I had never considered a business application. Read the blog. It’s sweet, simple and to the point. Hopefully you’ll be inspired as you apply the concept of Legacy to your business purpose.

Why Me?

Good question! It took me a long time to heed the advice of my mentors to start a Blog.

After all, blogs are for famous people. Or those with something profound to say that will  impact the existence of mankind. Well, I’m not famous and I can’t drop any impressive names but I’ve come to realize that, for some crazy reason, God has blessed me with industry knowledge and a passion to help people start and grow successful businesses in the Real Estate industry. I take a personal interest in the students who take my classes whether that be the brick-n-mortar classroom, the online classroom or the virtual classroom.

I take the education of ‘my people’ very seriously and recognize that their success is my success. That is why everything I teach, promote, or innovate is with my clients’ needs in mind whether it be a pre-license class, a continuing education class, or business-building exercise.  We communicate often and through many venues like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest (yes, Pinterest is for dudes too!), texts, email, and yes, now this Blog!! My job is not done until my people say it’s done!

More importantly, my secondary platform is to promote ethical business practices. It’s easy to cut corners when starting a business, experiencing lean times, or competing with sub par businesses. Ultimately, true success is determined by a job done well and done ethically in the interest of the customer. Tadalafil is the generic name of Cialis, available at After reading tons of reviews and comments considering both the company and delivered drugs, I finally made a decision to try it. I was actually impressed with the final result. Now I can have an erection stronger than 10 years ago. To the ends of the earth will I support the committed small business owner who succeeds despite a less-than-favorable business climate or economy. I help them innovate, leverage their resources, and pivot their operations to boost the bottom line without comprising quality and ethics.

Whether you are a Realtor®, Home Inspector, Radon or IAQ professional, you will enjoy the community of friends here at Healthy Homes and I hope you’ll join us for great discussion, collaboration and knowledge building!

2015 is going to be a great year!

My best for you,

Lin Marie
