#ThrowbackTuesday - Leave The Footprints, Don't Follow Them

MEDIA & MARKETING PANEL C.A.R. 2016  

I was invited to speak at the California Association of Realtors Conference in Long Beach, on the Media and Marketing Panel.   As always I will gladly jump on stage to spout about things I'm passionate about and was honored to do so.

One of the main things I spoke about was what I think the secret to being successful in this business is… One word – YOUTUBE.  Lead, don’t follow and find your own information. 

It's funny stepping out of my bubble to see what the rest of my industry is doing and it's always kinda wild to compare what I'm doing.  It seems that real estate, for the most part, is stuck in the dark ages... but I attempted to shine a light on at least my contribution to the industry in this episode of the Vlog...

Leave the footprints, don’t follow them. 

Thanks for being part of the rebellion

A Day in Detroit - Taking in the Motor City - Backstage Pass Vlog

Backstage Pass – A Day in the Motor City

Today’s Vlog is a bit more fun and a bit less business.  After the conference, I went on an adventure around Detroit to see the sights, and was definitely not disappointed.  First stop, The Heidelberg Project.  This is a somewhat crazy and wonderful outdoor expression of art in the middle of the city.  It has an almost post-apocalyptic feel to it.  I dug the madness of it all.  Next, I saw the murals all around the Eastern Market.  As a lot of you know, I’m a huge fan of street are and this was like nothing I had seen before.  Definitely recommend a visit.  Then onto Russell Street, which was a lovely tribute to creators and to the people of Detroit. 

And lastly, I finished up my excursion riding The People Mover, where I got to see the whole shebang.  What an explosion of creativity.  My kind of place.  I couldn’t have had a better time in a better city.  Thank you Detroit!  Can’t wait to come back next year, when hopefully it’s a tad warmer. 

Thanks for watching and for being part of the rebellion....
