GUEST POST

It was at the Power Move Summit 2008, that I had the honor of meeting Zondra Hughes for the very first time.  She was a panelist during a discussion about women, business and the rising minority community taking leadership positions.  I was impressed by her smarts, her drive and focus.  It is a pleasure to work with her at N’Digo, her talent as an editor, improves all those who are around her.  She has already gotten a few of her books published already at such a young age…watch out America!

I call her not only an extremely talented writer, incomparable editor but most of all…my friend.

Her new book, Living the Ebony Life: E-Mails from the Plantation, has just been recently released…great timing for a Christmas and Holiday present!

Also, be sure to check out her blog on Chicago Now, the city’s hottest blog community.  Perhaps she may include Money Smart Radio one day, as a show with “swagger”?  C’mon someBODY!!

Highly Successful People: How to Pick a Winner Using These 7 Qualities

I have been through many business partners, helped coach many clients/students and recruited large sales teams.  It is within this process that I have shared in the success and failure of my decisions.  One of my biggest personal flaws is that I have the tendency to like every person that I meet.  In fact, I want them to win in whatever they set out to do…more so than they want to win for themselves.  Here are seven key qualities I have observed in highly successful people that I have had a pleasure in working with as I reach certain goals, helping me get closer to realizing my dreams.

Have You Had a Book Stuck in Your Head?

Have You Had a Book Stuck in Your Head?

Don’t let the economy slow you down, in FACT, more people need you more than ever!

My father always told me that NO ONE, can ever take away your education, your intelligence, your integrity or your experiences.  In fact, it is the lessons we learn in life that become invaluable to others.  Even King Solomon states in Ecclesiastes that “The words of the wise are like cattle prods-painful but helpful. Their collected sayings are like a nail-studded stick with which a shepherd drives the sheep.” I know sometimes we are stubborn but I hope we have all begun to see the upside to our downside, to the see the opportunities within our problems

Why is it a Great Time to Refinance?

We’ve hit the biggest week-to-week drop in 30 yr. fixed mortgage interest rates since 1981 and lowest interest rate environment over the last 40 years! Although people may feel that these rates may continue to drop, today, this is one of THE LOWEST interest rate environments EVER! A very profitable environment right now for many qualified homeowners.

I would caution though, due to the massive layoffs and job cuts of the mortgage industry, lenders, brokers and loan officers are inundated with stacks of applications and limited man-power to process and approve the loans.

If you want to put time on your side, don’t lose upcoming critical business days to process your loan. Get the ball rolling and mortgage professionals can still guide you along by “FLOATING the RATE”. In others words, get your application submitted, get your home appraised, mortgage underwritten and approved. Once all this is done, THEN you can lock your interest rate.
