Segment 1     Famous Quotations

“Just stay open. Because you never know when the magic might happen.” Paul Dolman, from his book, Hitchhiking with Larry David

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and
make a new ending.” Author Maria Robinson

Segment 2    Our 100th Episode…A Look Back

This is our 100th episode!  In April of 2010 we recorded our very 1st podcast with the help of Cliff Ravenscraft.  Cliff is the authority on podcasting and is the Podcast Answerman!  Cliff traveled to Nashville and in 1 full day he had our show up and on iTunes.  We are forever grateful to him.

Since then we have produced 100 episodes and while the main topic usually centers on real estate investing, we have found a way to bring in other topics that relate to sound business practices and personal development.

Today we take a look back and include audio clips from some of those shows.  We think you will thoroughly enjoy the highlights…we know we did!

Segment 3   Heart Topic: Enjoy the Drive

Most of you may remember the great Pixar movie: “CARS”.   It’s about a hot-shot race-car named Lightning McQueen who gets waylaid in Radiator Springs, where he finds the true meaning of life, family & friendship.

We’ve never seen this movie…but are committed to watching it very soon after catching 10 minutes of it and hearing these lines:

Sally (The Porsche): Forty years ago, that interstate down there didn’t exist.
Lightning McQueen (The Race Car): Really?
Sally: Yeah. Back then, cars came across the country a whole different way.
Lightning McQueen: How do you mean?
Sally: Well, the road didn’t cut through the land like that interstate. It moved with the land, it rose, it fell, it curved. Cars didn’t drive on it to make great time. They drove on it to have a great time.

This weekend interstate construction forced us to take a two-lane highway to reach our destination.  At first this brought on some frustrating thoughts:

  • We had a timed event to get to
  • The trip would take longer
  • The trip required more planning

However, once we considered it, we became excited because we hadn’t traveled this highway in many years.  We knew it would be a beautiful drive with many scenic views.  So we decided to forget about making great time and instead have a great time!


Our question this week is:  How long has it been since you enjoyed a simple ride through the countryside? Today, slow down and take the scenic route.

Until next week, Peace!

Connie and Sheila

    my son told me once that if you like who you are you can’t regret your past.
    one lawyer friend told me if i hadn’t make the mistakes i made i would have no wisdom to offer my children.

    I love your show because you bring out the best in me. you help me dream big and have confidence.
    You guys are so great the way you respect each other and bring out the best in each other.
    i was laughing so hard at you guys laughing at yourselves listening to yourselves. too funny
    i love the 2 of you together better than one person interviewing another or 5 people trying to get a word in edgewise. you are both so happy and full of good vibes and knowledgeable and full of the good advice i really badly need. at my last place of residence i didn’t have the net and i would try to listen to you in the brentwood library parking lot so when you crack me up i wouldn’t be inside getting shushed.
    thank you for your energy and your great stories and your great comments and the way you play off each other.
    i can’t wait to get you book connie. i’m going to bring it to you one day and get you to sign it. it will be an honor to meet you and to know you better.
    I had 2 people very dear to me die last year i feel in a way murdered but can’t be proven 2 really dear people.
    now i’m going to listen to your show and comment on that. thanks

    Wow! Jill, your posts are amazing. Thank you so much for all of the compliments. I think our heads just got a little bigger. Seriously, you are too kind.

    At the end of the second comment, you sound like an awesome life coach. We would love nothing more than for your predictions to come true. The bigger we get, the more people we can help. We love doing this show and have fun each and every episode.

    We cannot say enough good things about Dan Miller @ 48days.com, not can we say enough about Greg & Ginny Pitts @ Grand Canyon Properties. These folks have been instrumental in our lives.

    It sounds like you have a very smart son and attorney as well.
    We wish you all the best.
