As many of you know I am what some call a very dedicated blogger madman when it comes to posting. OK, yes between my blog here and my Wordpress blog, I post 30 blogs per week, but what you don't know is that I only spend an average of an hour a day doing that. (I promise.)
But, I am going to let you in on another little secret. The man behind the blog isn't really the brains of the operation. It was pointed out to me by my good friend, (despite being a Phillies Fan - congratulations by the way) Fran "The Title Man" Gaspari, in his comment below that I don't give enough credit to my wife, Samantha.
Samantha takes all my ramblings that I have in Word, or on a voice recorder, and revises the format, grammar and spelling to each and every one of my posts, so I don't look like an idiot to all of you and my loving public.
For those of you that don't know, Samantha and I have been married for 15 years. We met when she was an employee of mine for a company that I owned for 18 years until I sold it in 2005. Without Samantha, I could honestly say that I wouldn't have the great posts I do.
I also have to thank Samantha for raising kids that I can be proud of and I know I don't thank her enough for that. I have written many great posts about my kids, but without Samantha these kids would be in a public school and not be as mature and as smart as they are.
I am proud to be their coach on the baseball field, but I know my wife and her teaching them at home has made them who they are. My wife has been a stay at home mom from the moment my first daughter was born, over 10 years ago and I would never want to even attempt her job of being mom. It is tougher than any job or career that I could ever do in life and I applaud her for her patience with the kids and me. (I know sometimes I can be difficult.) *Samantha here: GASP! Difficult? Nahhhhhhh! (rofl)
Over the years she has also taken care of me and my real estate career by being the ever diligent filing person in my life. If she wasn't around, I can't imagine how high the stack of folders would be. She is the one that makes sure that I have all the paper work, cell phone and Supra key when I walk out the door. Can you imagine how stupid I would look showing up at the first house of the day without my Supra key?
So, this post is dedicated to the woman that I don't give enough credit to when it comes to my successful real estate career and my successful family life. I promise I thank her in real life. Thanks to Fran, it was clearly pointed out that I should thank her publicly as well.
