Amazon Announced its Top 20 Finalists for HQ2 and Why You Should Care

If you’ve been paying attention to the news, you’ve probably heard that Amazon is shopping for HQ2 - the home of their second headquarters.

In September they put out a Request for Proposals (RFP) to North American Cities searching for:

  • A metro with more than 1 million people
  • A stable and business-friendly environment
  • Urban or suburban locations attractive to technical talent
  • An international airport within 45 minutes with direct flights to key cities
  • Close to freeways
  • High capacity connectivity (fiber optic and cellular)
  • Access to large, educated labor force
  • Attractive community and quality of life for employees
  • Access to mass transit to the new site
  • "Scale and creativity" in real estate options.

They received 238 proposals from cities vying to become Amazon’s second corporate home.  The phenomenal interest was not surprising.

It’s a HUGE prize - Amazon is projecting 50,000 jobs with an average annual salary of $100,000.  To do the...

4 Common Real Estate Investing Myths Debunked

Recognizing and challenging any limiting beliefs about real estate is the first step in becoming a successful real estate investor. So many investors severely limit what they accomplish or worse, they don’t even get started, because they believe one of the following myths:

Myth 1: You Need to have a Lot of Money or Time to Invest in Real Estate

A lot of potential investors I speak to say “I’d love to invest in real estate and I will as soon as I’ve got more money.” Or “I’d love to invest, but I don’t have time to find a property or be a landlord.”

People think they’re limited because they have limited resources. I thought the same thing.
My husband and I were searching for a 4-unit property to buy in Los Angeles and were stuck and unable to find the right investment because we were only thinking that we had to use our own capital, credit, or available time.

Tony Robbins says, “There’s no lack of...

4 Myths About Clarity, Goals and Success That Can Keep You Stuck

clarity goals Jan 04, 2018

 

Don't underestimate the importance of clarity.  Clarity of vision is the first step for a goddess in real estate investing (or really anything else she desires).  It's really the most magical thing for goddesses.

It's important to bust through the myths that most people believe around clarity, success, and goals.  These are the myths that keep these folks stuck with the same problems year after year.  

These old world myths say:

Myth 1: Make a long list of goals and make sure they’re S.M.A.R.T.

“People are remarkably bad at remembering long lists of goals. I learned this at a professional level when trying to get my high-performance coaching clients to stay on track; the longer their lists of to-dos and goals, the more overwhelmed and off-track they got. Clarity comes with simplicity.” ~ Brendon Burchard

The Goddess Way is to to simplify and get to the essence of what you want and how you want to feel. No long lists and...

What the World Needs Now Is...

mindset Jan 04, 2018

Perhaps you're like me and 2017 left you feeling beat up and traumatized?

In addition to some very serious tragedies in my personal life, all the talk of sexual assaults, #metoo, North Korea, bullying, fake news, police brutality, hurricanes, floods, fires, have left me feeling like I'm suffering from PTSD.  Part of me wants to pull the covers over my head and hibernate until next Christmas.  

Can you relate?

As we thankfully start fresh with a new year, I want to give you a little reminder that helped me.

Remember that for every piece of bad news, there are 9999+ instances of beautiful, compassionate, sympathetic, generous actions that the news channels don't feel are newsworthy to share.

Remember that despite the clouds, storms, and night skies, the sun never stops shining.

Remember that we need to see the dark and the dirty in order to know what to clean up.

Remember that you, goddess, are in the perfect position to shine your light and clear out the shadows.
