Ask yourself, what’s the first thing a buyer of your commercial appraisal firm would change? Tough question. You know in your heart if you’re really giving it your all, or just kicking the can down the road. When the student is ready the master will appear. If that’s you, let’s get going.

- Resentment (add energy to your leadership with enthusiasm)
