TPIN Magazine September/October 2014

On the cover and our CEO centerfold for this issue is the one and only Joyce Essex Harvey. Joyce is the real deal and I am honored to know her. She is a highly respected and successful real estate professional closing more than billion dollars in sales. Read her story and look out for her interview on the Power Is Now Radio very soon. You will be inspired. Now, the first is an article by Aaron Zapata, broker-owner of Zapata Realty in Yorba Linda, CA. Zapata explains that it is important to find some time for yourself to rest and recharge your batteries. What in the heck is he talking about? I will rest when I die – just kidding. Seriously – I need a vacation like fish needs water. This is an extremely important concept because it is easy to lose sight of what is important when you are trying to build a real estate business, provide excellent service for your clients or go the extra mile to close a sale for your clients. Aaron hit a nerve with me in this great article. “Rest is not laziness. Rest is not wrong. Rest, when done while I am awake, is refreshing,” he said. I need to get some rest. Thanks for a great article Aaron now go get some rest.

On the flip side is an article by Brittany Hurd, director of marketing at LRES Corporation, who explained how, through the birth of her daughter at an early age, she was able to motivate herself to finish her education, better her employment situation and buy her first house. I can relate to all of that. My wife and got married at 19. We will celebrate 33 years of marriage on December 19th. Getting married at a very young age motivated me to work hard to be the man she married even though I was still a boy. I didn’t get very much rest. I worked very hard and still do to this day. Necessity is the mother of invention. Brittany you are an inspiration because you didn’t let your circumstances dictate your future. You are the captain of your ship and the master of your destiny. Keep inspiring people and get some rest.
