    Does Your Real Estate Website Suck?

    Wind-vs-SunHave you heard this story?

    The sun and the wind were hanging out watching a man working in a field. They were bored so they decided to see who could get the guy to take his jacket off first.

    The wind steps up and says “I am strong … you watch this”.

One group was allowed to eat the cookies, while the other one was only allowed to eat radishes.

    How to Get It All Done as a Busy Real Estate Investor

    Get it all done Six years ago, on November 1st, I left my job to focus on real estate investing and building Rev N You.

    It feels like a lifetime ago that I had to be at work by 8am. I don’t even use an alarm most mornings unless I am going to an early morning class at Crossfit.

    I know it’s not just me with this fear.

    Public speaking is one of the greatest fears in North America. It’s not because people fear opening their mouth and letting words come out. Most of us do that quite easily; some maybe a …
