  • Balancing Your ‘Why’ With Your ‘Now’

    April 20, 2020 by

    We’ve all heard that it all starts with Why. We need to know what we are working for and working toward in order to be most productive. I agree wholeheartedly with this.

  • Park Manor Flip: By the Numbers

    January 17, 2020 by

  • Biggest Flip

    January 1, 2020 by
