Being a self starter is difficult business. Even being successful in a company of millions can become a hassle, and, after months (maybe years) of yearning for success, and not achieving it, you wonder why you’re not as successful as you should be.
I think it’s an important factor to consider. Does success equal happiness or fulfillment? No, but we like to feel like we have accomplished something worthwhile, that all the time and sweat we have input into our jobs has not been a waste of time.
Having said that, I think there are reasons why people are not as successful as they should be, according to the National Federal of Independent.
Postcards can be a nice gesture in a world that, little by little, continues to dive into technological methods of communication.
Aside from face-to-face communication, postcards (or any handwritten note for the matter) provide a more intimate connection to people than just sending another email or text.

“An event has happened, upon which it is difficult to speak, and impossible to be silent.”
– Edmund Burke
Such is the truth in the latest scandal that shocked Florida when Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi and Sweetwater Mayor Manuel Marono were arrested by the FBI for accepting bribes in separate schemes.
To add insult to injury, Governor Rick Scott has now suspended both mayors, following their arrest at their City Hall offices, after a two-year public corruption investigation. According to NBC NEWS, two lobbyists, Jorge Forte and Richard Candia, has also been charge with conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right.
While this is Marono’s third term and Pizzi’s second term, U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer has stated that Marono received more than $40,000 in bribes since 2002 and Pizzi received $6,750 in bribes.
Reverse Mortgage Success Story in Miami…
Mimi Planas wanted her mother, Caridad Planas, to have a better quality of life during her retirement.
Planas began the reverse mortgage process in December 2009 and PS Financial Services met with them on January 29, 2010. The company that Planas had been using before had not even done an appraisal yet while PS Financial Services was able to get an appraiser out to the Planas a day after their first meeting.
I’m always driving.
Even if I wasn’t a reverse mortgage broker, I’d still be driving because I live in Miami.
Could I survive without driving? Probably.
Do I want to? Not really.
I dread not having the ability to go somewhere when I want to. It’s frustrating, infuriating and inconvenient. Not to mention, relying on someone to chauffeur you around. That’s just horrible for all those involved.
So when I read that fewer teens are obtaining driver’s licenses I couldn’t help but stop and wonder: What’s going on?
Miami Cafecito Campaign Becomes Official
You can complain about the heat and the humidity and the horrible traffic that stretches for at least three hours in the morning and three hours at night but, in the end, there is nothing that even remotely compares to Miami.
It’s unique flavor of combining customs from different countries in order to create a new one, that is both Hispanic and American is incredible.
Most recently, the pots and pans that banged on the night of the Miami Heat win signal to something different brewing in a Miami.
If you were anywhere near Downtown Miami Monday, you were probably a witness to one of the greatest celebrations for a winning team in Miami. Complete with a parade and an American Airlines Arena After Party for season ticket holders, the Miami Heat and it’s immense collection of fans celebrated in style.
Well, at least some did.
Reverse Mortgage Calculators in South Florida
Many reverse mortgage sites, including my own, have a reverse mortgage calculator in place to help potential clients gauge if a reverse mortgage is right for them before contacting a broker or lender. Many ask the obvious question such as your age, the value of your home and your current mortgage balance.
Nonetheless, when considering a reverse mortgage it is always best to talk to a representative in person before fulling deciding to commit. In the end, every case is different and none should be handled in the same manner as those that came before it or those who will come after.
