First-Time Homebuyer Course and Checklist

Hi Folks:

It occurred to me this morning that I have not shared a post about my resource for new homebuyers. A few years back I created a Udemy course and pdf checklist that educates and guides new homebuyers about the process. Check out the course here.

If you have any specific questions, comment below or contact me @ (786) 327-6326. I hope this helps! Happy house hunting!

Cheers,

John

How Do You Start Your Days?

Years ago, I adopted Dr. Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, then I learned Tom Hopkin’s “golden twelve”words. In the past couple months I added Brendan Burchard’s 6 High Performance Habits. Here’s my adaptation of HP2…

HP2. Generate Energy: Release stress and tension, then get intentional; bring the joy & positive energy; and optimize health. I intend to start my next activity stress-free, positive, eager, alert, flexible, and thankful for the gift of life today. I intend to ”be proactive” in building success in my business. I will bring more joy into my life by observing my daily blessings. I will raise my energy by exercising 5 times weekly, getting 7-8 hours of sleep nightly, eating healthy, and maintaining positive emotions!

Get Fit Now! Exercise Reduces Stress, Elevates Mood, and Improves Learning!

Too many times we put off what is good for us, including proper nutrition (healthy eating), adequate sleep (7-8 hours), and regular exercise.

The consequences for such failure are fatigue, neuroticism, and memory apathy.

…if the demands of your job or life require you to learn fast, deal with stress, be alert, pay attention, remember important things, and keep a positive mood, then you must take exercise more seriously. –Brendon Burchard

We all have two choices when it comes down to having a healthy lifestyle: (a) we fit fitness into our daily schedule, or (b) we make excuses why we didn’t. Today is a new day and the first day of the rest of your life. How do you want it to go? Will you choose something fit for you or will you make another excuse?

🥁Here’s a tip: start with a 5 minute stretch today. Tomorrow, make it ten. Slow and steady win the race. But you’ll never win if you never begin. 🏆

High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

The eloquence of this book, High Performance Habits, is repetitively evident in how well-articulated and brilliant the content is espoused, that it begs the question, ‘did Brendon Burchard write this himself or did he hire a ghost writer?”

Why am I not surprised at how well these habits sync with Dr. Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Successful People. If you have not yet read this book, I highly recommend it! I’m only on page 48 and have already taken dozens of notes and pinned the HP6 on a 4 by 6 card to memorize and internalize them.

Thank you, Michael Naughton, for recommending this book! I’ve added the HP6 right next to Dr. Covey’s 7 Habits above my desk so they stay top-of-mind!

Logos & Business Cards (Which to use?)

Hi Folks,

I’m trying to design a new business card and with 3 companies that I manage, I’m splitting hairs on which logo/name to use for one side of the card. I NEED YOUR HELP! What logo do you like best?

Option 1:  Tanner Enterprises is the parent company (me, essentially) that manages the Florida Professional Entrepreneur Network (PEN).

TE logo

Option 2: Essentially, the goal is to make PEN a national brand of networking, but for now we just have FL PEN, which includes 7 citywide networking groups: JAX PEN, SAF PEN, MIA PEN, FTL PEN, WPB PEN, ORL PEN, and TPA PEN. (example: www.meetup.com/jaxpen)

PEN logo

So, when I’m creating my business card I am at a roadblock of indecision because I just don’t know what to do. I’m thinking that option 2 is better, for now, because I’m trying to be the megaphone for the company. After PEN is famous (hopefully), then I can market Tanner Enterprises as the company who pioneered the PEN brand. That seems to be a logical sequence. What are your thoughts??? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!!!! 🙂

Cheers!

Jack
