Relocate to Wisconsin

Are you an Orange or a Tangerine ?

   Some peoples say you have to have a thick skin....let it roll off your's ONLY business....don't take it personally.....yadda yadda. While I think that the word "passionate" is over used....a lot like awesome and  a collection of others....if you really put your heart into your "strictly business" ...people know you MEAN business.  Sincerity cannot to feigned.sincerity

     Does "meaning business" imply you are mean....?  Not at are serious about what you do....and have a healthy business enthusiasm for your profession.
   There are situations that evoke emotion of course....and you decide how to one else controls that response.

      You were not chosen for the listing...the buyer that never bought....the loan they never locked, the inspection not scheduled.You can choose to forever wallow in self angry with the situation, person, the system...or you can choose to learn from the situation....and give yourself some time to work through the disappointment....and move on to other business.

 orange  Oranges and tangerines are similar in appearance....oranges are generally bigger, and have a distinct citrus flavor.....and thick skin.  Tangerines are more delicate in flavor, smaller and have a much thinner skin.  You decide which to have in any given situation...or adopt as a personna. tangerine

  We have a rule in our allow yourself to be mad, sad, disappointed....for a maximum of 48 hours....your thin skin gets a little venting and breathing time.....and then your thicker skin comes back and you get right back out there and use the lesson you learned from that experience.

   Orange or tangerine...temporary or choose....Amen and Women.
