There are so many things that people who want to go into real estate do not know or understand. New realtors often waste a great deal of time on the wrong activities. This was frustrating.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I learned how to be a self motivator a very long time ago. The thought of getting up and making the best of the day whether it is working on Real Estate, getting ready for an Exercise, working on another chapter/concept, or spending time with the family will usually kick me into overdrive.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend a good bit of my time in Real Estate (I am a Realtor after all), I spend a good chunk of my time with the military and of course I do tend to focus on my kids and their education. Overall I am always involved and busy.
I do wish I had more time to read as I think keeping your brain engaged is important and I find that people (I do mean myself) tend to lose their edge if they never do any reading or expand their thoughts past the daily grind.
