Work / Life Balance, Is There Really Such A Thing?

GrampsApril showers bring May flowers. April also brings spring break, baseball and the peak of the real estate season. It's enough to make even the most organized feel stressed. How do you manage it all and keep some semblance of balance in your life? Admittedly, I'm not a fan of the word balance when used in this way. I think it's misleading and sets us up for failure.
Balance implies we get everything done. But let's call life what it really is:

Is Persistence Helping Or Hurting You?

Saying Yes, When You Should Say No Can Damage Your Business

Young businesswoman falling downBusiness has been slow lately. You need a client. And then one shows up, but it's for an area that is far away and you don't really know. Or maybe it's an investor client and you don't work that market.
But you say yes anyway. Not because you want to, but because you are afraid to say no. Maybe you don't want to hurt the feelings of the person who referred you, or you are afraid if you say no to one that they will not refer others. Or maybe you ...
