It’s Wednesday and I’m happy to say I’m right on track with my mailer goals so far.  I’ve got 58 letters sitting in my car ready to be mailed out at lunch time.  The getting back up to speed part of the week is now over and I’ve got to kick it into high gear if I’m going to get another 150 letters done by Friday evening. I’ve identified two towns that I’m going to pull Out-of-State owner lists from …

Maren Kate from Escapingthe9to5.com recommended the book Start with Why by Simon Sinek on her site about a month ago and I’ll pretty much read anything she gives a good word to so I went out a bought it.
