Happy Spring!

As usual, we've been pretty busy this month. Here's some highlights of what we've reflected on and things we've done.


Monthly Cash Flow Game!

Marching into spring started off with our monthly cashflow game. The night is always a great learning experience as we get together with other likeminded people.

Al Heads to Colorado!

Al in Beautiful Colorado

A trip to Colorado for Al turned out quite the excitement. Al said the skiing was spectacular along with the incredible place to visit.

Al headed there with our director of business development coach to see if an expansion of West Coast Gardens would be something we would like to persue.

Our retail store has been operational for eight years now. We were thinking it might be time to look at going to the next level. We decided to see what our options are.

Our first step is to get our store WCGrunning turn-key and systemized so it can be a template for future expansion. We are reviewing our inventory management system, which is key to any new business. So we have a starting point!

Guidance Sought

As we have now begun finding the right guidance for the store which enables us to work more on the business and create win-wins for customers and employees alike. As our projects begin, we look forward to telling you all about our progress. Al Shelly Thomas

Bumps in the Road!

Changes always create little bumps in the road along the way.

A book that came my way was “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz "which had some great wisdom I learned and will work on living by:

  • Be Impeccable with your word

  • Don’t take anything personally

  • Don’t make assumptions

  • Always do your best

It really is a great guide to personal freedom!

Our Bookshelf!

We're going to be adding our favorite books to our shelf as we go along. To see all the books on the shelf, Check out our new bookshelf at Amazon (this will open in a new tab of your browser.)

The Power of Intention

One of my favourite mentors Wayne Dyer, reminded me to remember RULE #6.

WHAT IS RULE #6?

 

DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SO DAMN SERIOUSLY!

 

I have been known to do that and also take life sometimes too seriously when in fact we are here to learn love and play the game of life. If you'd like a copy of this book, check out our bookshelf!

an amazing life experience

Real Estate or Otherwise

Two questions I ask myself:

1. How can I make Win-Win situations with everyone with whom I come into contact?

2. Am I doing this for the right reasons and for the highest good of all?

Decide what and why you are doing what you do. Are you loving or enjoying it? When it is all said and done, WE ARE ALL ONE!

Don’t look back with regrets. Go for what it is that you want!


Live, Love, and Laugh!

Till Next Month...

Cheers! Al & Shelley
