It Takes A Village

We don’t do “village” very well as Americans, especially as families. Few homes have parents and grandparents living together. I believe that generations before us had something valuable by operating as a village. I’m convinced that nobody gets to be #1 in anything without support. I include myself and my career, knowing that without the two people in the photo above, I would not be able to deliver excellence to my clients. They bring their strengths to the table and that makes me stronger. 

I had the pleasure of attending The US Open last week. There are subtle differences between #1 and #2. With each up and down during a match, the monitors would show the team behind the player in the stands. They lived and died with every point, game and set and felt as big a part of the outcome as their player on the court. It left me wondering if the team was the variable that set them a part as #1 or #2. Think of the players as Beyonce and the coaches and support system as the back up dancers. If you are a Beyonce, make sure you have the best back up singers in the business. If you are a backup singer, make sure you are with the best possible Beyonce in the business. Choose your tribe wisely. It could mean the difference between being #1 or #2. 





I found this graph very interesting! When it comes to mortgage rates, it’s all about perspective. Even with mortgage rates rising, buyers can still secure a rate that’s lower than several of the past decades.
