QUOTE: “Don’t linger on the edges. Epiphanies are not granted to those who play it safe, or pitch a self-serving agenda. Instead, epiphanies seek out those who engage themselves wherever they are and tell the truth as much as they can, who speak directly to the heart of an issue. There is something deep within us that responds to those who level with us, who don’t suggest our compromises for us.” Fierce Leadership by Susan Scott, author of Fierce Conversations

MORGAN STANLEY REALTOR RETIREMENT PLAN: Maria Popa a preferred vendor with Morgan Stanley is looking into a program for real estate agents to set up retirement accounts. Maria needs to know who would be interested in learning more about such a program. I have posted a signup sheet in the Resource Room to determine if there is any interest in such a program. It is has been my experience that a great many of us wait until the last minute to think about retirement only to find out we did not give it any where near enough forethought about it. It is never too late to plan ahead.
