I Kill Myself

I have a confession to make. One of my time management techniques:  I deliberately kill myself, trying to reach my goals. The first time I was introduced to any concept of time management was in college. My engineering design team’s assignment:  create a non-conventional passenger aircraft.  A huge undertaking.

When I first got into real estate, a more experienced agent tried to give me branding advice. "You need to do something clever with your name. I can't pronounce your last name. But your first name.
