Is The Glass Half Full or Is It Half Empty? 2019-02-08

The question “Is the glass half full or is it half empty?” is an idiom commonly used to explain how some people perceive situations differently.

Weren’t You Ever Scared? 2019-01-25

Last week during one of our classes a student asked me “Weren’t you ever scared?” My response was, to my surprise, an emotional one with tears welling up in my eyes. Of course, I I had been scared.

Almost Forgot to Blog! 2019-01-11

When the plate is full, time is speeding by quickly, and curriculums all need to be updated, it’s easy to forget to blog. Blogging is not for the faint of heart, and when it is compounded by a state of frenzy and a cluttered mind, it can become a huge burden.

TEAM Hughes Opinion: Classroom or Online Course 2019-01-09

We TEAM Hughes Real Estate School instructors regularly get asked our opinion as to which is better, a classroom or online course. Each type of course has its own advantages and disadvantages, and some are below.

We Always Need New Agents 2019-01-07

As a real estate instructor and school owner, my opinion is that we always need new agents in the practice of real estate. Many seasoned real estate agents would disagree with that statement, but that’s because most of them no longer welcome competition and they’ve lost their love of synergism.

Start that Stretch Soon! 2019-01-05

Okay, the holidays are now over. Goals should be established, and road maps laid out. If you are anything like me, you will be stepping outside your comfort zone. If that’s the case, start that stretch soon! The longer you wait to stretch yourself, the more difficult it will become.
