Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! I heard on the news the other day that Labor Day is the beginning of the holiday season, which put the calendar in perspective for me. I love this time of year in Arizona, and the last few months of the year are a great opportunity for each of us to push just a little harder for the finish line. And how appropriate that we can have a small break, a day to rest and recharge before we dive into the last stretch of 2016.

However you plan to spend the long weekend, I hope you take some time to reflect on the year so far. There is still time to adjust your goals, reset and refocus. Anything is possible, if you dare to dream big enough and go for it. From my family to yours, we wish you a very happy, healthy and safe Labor Day celebration. Let’s make it a great week!

From Candles to Soap

In 1879, Procter and Gamble's best seller was candles. But the company was in trouble. Thomas Edison had invented the light bulb, and it looked as if candles would become obsolete. Their fears became reality when the market for candles plummeted since they were now sold only for-special occasions.

The outlook appeared to be bleak for Procter and Gamble. However, at this time, it seemed that destiny played a dramatic part in pulling the struggling company from the clutches of bankruptcy. A forgetful employee at a small factory in Cincinnati forgot to turn off his machine when he went to lunch. The result? A frothing mass of lather filled with air bubbles. He almost threw the stuff away but instead decided to make it into soap. The soap floated. Thus, Ivory soap was born and became the mainstay of the Procter and Gamble Company.

Why was soap that floats such a hot item at that time? In Cincinnati, during that period, some people bathed in the Ohio River. Floating soap would never sink and consequently never got lost. So, Ivory soap became a best seller in Ohio and eventually across the country also.

Like Procter and Gamble, never give up when things go wrong or when seemingly unsurmountable problems arise. Creativity put to work can change a problem and turn it into a gold mine.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! I hope this email finds you well and off to a good start for the new week. A few days ago I watched a quick video of John Assaraf, who is an inspirational speaker/teacher talking about what defines successful people. The key ingredient in those who succeed and those who do not is their ability to keep trying regardless of how many times they fail or how many obstacles they encounter.

The push themselves; if the goal is ten pull-ups they do eleven. If the goal is thirty minutes of studying, they do thirty-one minutes. If the goal is twenty prospecting calls, they do twenty-one calls. They go the extra mile to meet their goals. This week I would like to challenge each of you…whatever your goals are, whether it is healthy and fitness, business or some other personal goal, I challenge you to go the extra mile. Push yourself to do just one more, push yourself to commit to just one minute longer. At the end of the week, one more minute, one more call, one more pull-up will be seven more times that you tried, and times that by the month, the results will be exponential. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

If You Think You Can by Walter D. Wintle

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't!
If you want to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will;
It's all in the state of the mind.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger and faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! It’s officially that time of year again – back to school – which means we are back to the daily routine for everyone in the house and the fall temps promise to return soon! This year my youngest, Mila started first grade, and as we prepared to drop her off at the school, she promptly informed her mother and me that she didn’t need us to walk her to class. While it broke our hearts just a little, to see her walk away from the car with her backpack in tow and not even a glance back at us, we do hope she has this much enthusiasm for every day of school!

This week, I thought in honor of our all children starting their first day of the new school year, and the teachers who sacrifice their lives to the education system, I would dedicate this morning’s email to them. Whether it is first grade or a senior in college, education is an essential part of what shapes the future of our communities. We all have that one special teacher who left a special mark in our lives, and along the way teachers may show up in our lives outside of the classroom. Take some time this week to remember and honor those who have helped you along the way, and those who will help your own children. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…what an exciting weekend of events happening at the Olympic Games in Rio! If you are like me, you don’t watch anything but the Olympics and skip between channels to catch all your favorite events. I have so much respect for all the athletes from across the world that are the very definition of what it means to be committed to their goals.

According to historical records, the first Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC, and they were said to be have been dedicated to the Olympian Gods. Today we are celebrating the thirty-first modern Olympics over 124 years of the greatest athletes creating history for those to come. This short video is a mix of some of the best Olympic moments throughout history. I am inspired by these amazing men and women…I am inspired to become a better version of myself, to become a champion. Are you? Let’s make it a great week!

PS Go USA!

Nate's Monday Morning Message: Month of Miracles

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message: Month of Miracles 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…today is the beginning of the Month of Miracles for RE/MAX offices across the United States. And here at RE/MAX Professionals, we are excited to kick off the month with a goal to raise One Million Pennies!

Since 1992 RE/MAX agents have contributed more than $147 million to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network, which has 170 hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Our support has helped more than 10 million children who receive treatment at a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital each year. All of the funds we raise stay local and support our Phoenix Children’s Hospital. And our agents have been recognized several times over the years for having raised the most money for PCH out of all RE/MAX offices in the Southwest Region, which is a huge accomplishment and we are very proud of this recognition.

We are excited to participate in the Month of Miracles and know that our agents and our clients will help us get there. If you are wondering what to do with that penny jar that is overflowing, you can stop by one of our six offices and help us reach our goal of One Million Pennies! Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…this week I am happy to share some exciting news! I have been invited to be a guest instructor for the newest REALTOR training, the Certified Listing Agent offered by Rebus University.

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

The 3M Company encourages creativity from its employees. The company allows its researchers to spend 15 percent of their time on any project that interests them. This attitude has brought fantastic benefits not only to the employees but to the 3M Company itself Many times, a spark of an idea turned into a successful product has boosted 3M's profits tremendously.

Some years ago, a scientist in 3M's commercial office took advantage of this 15 percent creative time. This scientist, Art Fry, came up with an idea for one of 3M's best-selling products. It seems that Art Fry dealt with a small irritation every Sunday as he sang in the church choir. After marking his pages in the hymnal with small bits of paper, the small pieces would invariably fall out all over the floor.

Suddenly, an idea struck Fry. He remembered an adhesive developed by a colleague that everyone thought was a failure because it did not stick very well. "I coated the adhesive on a paper sample," Fry recalls, "and I found that it was not only a good bookmark, but it was great for writing notes. It will stay in place as long as you want it to, and then you can remove it without damage."

Yes, Art Fry hit the jackpot. The resulting product was called Post-it! and has become one of 3M's most successful office products.
