This may come as a surprise, but some folks still don’t think the housing market is taking a licking right now.  I don’t say that with confidence (or excitement).  I’m just calling it how I see it and I don’t see it subsiding anytime soon.  Ding ding ding...the adjustments may run faster and wider over the months to come.  Found this over the weekend. Bottom line: there are concerns that some banks have been understating their costs to paint a brighter picture of their financial situation.

You could be next.  Not to loose your home; but to loose your job.  What would happen if your employer, Department Head, or VP weren’t telling the complete truth?  Understating the health of the organization or the team.  Specifics aren’t the issue - there are far too many variables.  The point of this piece is that you must always ensure that you are in a position to negotiate, run, or rebound should the situation appear unfavorable.  

The truth of the matter is that you are a bank of creativity, dependability, and productivity, in which you have total control over all deposits, interest rates, and withdrawals.  From time to time you will face customers, of all types, that seek to take advantage of your offering.  Make that interaction a good thing for both parties.  Like Tonya Taylor of Rising Star Ideas told me last week, “good is good enough.”  It’s Monday – you good – let’s keep it moving!    

PS. Leave a comment and stop by later in the week.  I’ll post my thoughts around negotiate, run, or rebound.  Also...Tonya Taylor will be my guest on next weeks Power Call.  Ms. “fake it until you make it” will drop three helpful business tips for those in business or considering a business.

The Power to Spare bowling event to benefit Community Law in Action (CLIA) will happen June 3rd at the Stoneleigh lanes in Baltimore, MD. The cost for a corporate team is $500 and for an individual is $75. I am looking for at least two corporate teams and at least 15 more random individuals to participate in this charitable event. There will be plenty of food, fun, networking and a chance to capture images of a terrible bowler (me). For more information - give me a call in my office: 443-393-1254 or reply to this email. For information on the organization visit CLIA.
