I saw this lovely specimen of one of my favorite trees as I was driving through downtown Phoenix. 🌵⠀
⠀
Palo Blanco (Acacia willardiana), is a Mexican native that does beautifully in desert climates. ☀️⠀
⠀
They are semi-evergreen, their white bark is highly praised for the beauty it adds to the landscape. They are thornless and do produce seed pods, but are fairly low-litter trees.⠀
⠀
This is one of my preferred trees to use in narrow areas as it typically grows only 10 ft. wide.⠀

Calorie Surplus 🍌🥩🍿

What exactly is a calorie surplus and how does that benefit you? 

A calorie surplus is when you are eating at above your maintenance calories, which means you are consuming more calories than you are burning 🔥🔥🔥

Now how does that benefit you? Eating in a surplus of calories for 3 to 6 months and training properly can lead to sufficient muscle growth. Yes, you will gain body fat and it will be uncomfortable for a little while but the end results are worth it! 

Just check out my own transformation! The first picture is from last August until February of this year. I am currently in my second calorie surplus I have ever done and I am eating 3300 calories a day! I have had to train my metabolism and track my food for the last 3 years to get myself to this point but it’s been so worth it! It’s hard eating this many calories everyday but the end results are going to be great! 

If you want to gain muscle then get comfortable with being uncomfortable and get into a calorie surplus! Message me today to find out more about our online training and macros program! 💪🏻

Everyone sees the highlight reels here on social media…
.
You know what I mean, the “fun stuff” and the “winning” that everyone posts
.
Everyone wants to share their successes, but often times fail to leave out their failures 
.
They make entrepreneurship sound fun, they make it sound easy. 
.
But let me tell you the truth….
.
At times its fucking lonely.
.
I know this feeling all too well...I call it being in “No Mans Land”.
.
When you start...
.
Dreaming.
.
Planning.
.
Pushing.
.
Taking risks.
.
Creating.
.
And working your fucking ass off
.
To chase this crazy ass vision you see in your head that nobody else sees.
.
You’re going be called crazy.
.
You’re going be called unrealistic.
.
You’re going be called greedy.
.
You’re going be called egotistical.
.
People are going to guilt you by saying “you think you’re too good for us”.
.
And you’re going to end up here...
.
Completely Alone...
.
In No Mans Land.
.
You will question everything about your vision, your goals, your actions…
.
And most importantly yourself.
.
But what you have to understand no mans land is that its a bridge between who you were and who you are becoming.
.
Its a sign you’re on the right path.
.
You are transitioning out of relationships that held you inside a life that you weren’t satisfied with.
.
...and into relationships that serve your future self, mission, goals and dreams and ultimately fulfill you, serve you & contribute to the quality of you’re looking for.
.
They just haven’t materialized yet.
.
This is hard to see when you haven’t gone through it before. 
.
Trust me when I tell you, it is only temporary.
.
We all go through it.
.
Instead of giving up on yourself
.
Stand alone knowing most people don’t have what it takes to venture down this path. 
.
Most that try will quit on themselves and fail.
.
But know that better things are coming...if you can withstand the silence.
I am seeing a trend of new agents getting into the business and within a couple of months want to start their own real estate team. 

My advice to you? 

Stop trying to skip the process. 

Learning is a process

Obtaining knowledge is a process 

Gaining experience in this business is a process 

Building a reputation that you can stand on is a process. 

When you own a team, others come to you to help them grow their business and learn from you. 

They want to learn what you have done for yourself that has worked well for you and your clients so they can utilize those same skills in their business. 

So let me ask you, if you haven't done much yourself, what exactly do you bring to the table for them? 

How can you teach them and guide them if you are still trying to learn the ropes yourself?

Are you really in it to help them grow? 

Or are you in it for yourself to take yourself out of production. 

Leadership isn't for everyone. 

Not everyone possesses the skills to be a great leader. 

Leading by example isn't the best way to lead; it's the only way to lead.

Take the time to build your own business first. 

Take the wins 

Take the losses 

Take all of it. 

And once you've been kicked in the mouth enough in this business through the lessons taught to you through experience.....

Now you're ready to help lead others to be the best they can be through your own experiences 

Don't skip the process

It will make you a better leader in the end.
This project was just completed for some wonderful clients in North Scottsdale. Our clients are from the Mid-West and have already put this home to good work traveling here to AZ. It was a wonderful experience working with them and our photographers captured that desert look and background perfectly roehnerryan .

A few lessons I’ve learned in these last 35 years….

Nobody is going to come and make your dreams come true for you. You have to make it happen yourself. 

It’s going to get tough sometimes. Just embrace that. 

When life gets tough, make it a point to rise to the occasion and face the challenges head on. 

Embrace the chaos, and learn from the challenges. Eventually those challenges no longer are issues for you.

You’re only going to have a few people you can really lean on in this life. 

Don’t take them for granted. Take care of those that take care of and support you. Once you burn those bridges, they are gone. 

You’re going to piss some people off when you start doing what’s best for you, and start building a life around your own vision of happiness; that’s ok. You’re not for everybody. You don’t want to be.

There is no amount of money in the world, no prize, and no award that is worth compromising your values. Never do anything for anyone that violates your core values. 

Know when to apologize. If you’re wrong, own it, learn the lesson in it, and move forward.

Learn how to communicate. We don’t all think the same way, and our personalities don’t allow us to all see things the same way. Being able to communicate your thoughts or point of views can go along way in your relationships. This is something that is an ongoing work of progress for me. 

Most important, get very clear on what you want out of life and get to work building that. You’ll never find happiness living a life the way others tell you to live it. We are all driven and motivated by different things. 

Pay close attention to the things that make you feel accomplished and complete inside, and do more of those things. 

I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start.
You want a successful life?
.
I have the formula right here.
.
Its simple, easy and will cost you nothing...
.
The secret formula is:
.
1. Learn to communicate with your actions. Not excuses.
.
2. Learn to listen to people through their actions. Not excuses.
.
Thats it.
.
Really think about that for a moment 
.
Your actions are what matter at the end of the day, not your words. 
.
We all know someone that talks, but never follows through and takes action.
.
Action will always beat talent when talent doesn’t take action.
DO THE WORK...

Do it even when it sucks.

Do it when you’re not motivated.

Do it when you’re tired.

Keep doing the work even if the results are slow to come.

Do it even when others say you’re out of your mind.

Do it even while others can’t see your vision.

And keep doing the work even on weekends.

That’s the secret everyone is looking for. 

That’s the secret to being successful in business, deepening your relationships, and becoming the best version of yourself.

Understand it will take time.

Understand it won’t come overnight.

Understand it will most likely take years.

And in times like these the work you do over the next few weeks, months, even years, and the sense of urgency that you commit might be the determining factor for a lot of things.

Get out there and crush it.
Is this giant marble fireplace gorgeous or what!!? I am in love! ⁣
⁣
Busy day into weekend ahead. Showings & meetings today into workouts & seeing the new build tomorrow 🙏🏽😍 (I’ll post updated videos!) ⁣
⁣
Next week is already February .... !? 🤯⁣
⁣
Relocating in 2021 is becoming more and more prevalent. If you, or anyone you know is considering a move to AZ, selling & upgrading, looking to buy in this time of wonderful interest rates, I would love to be a resource & connection for you!! 🤍🏘⁣

I’ve spent the last couple of years paying close attention to what drives me personally. 

I’m not talking about the basic day to day things…

But the things in life that I really gravitate towards and light a fire in me.

The things that keep me personally motivated and excited about life. 

The things that bring happiness inside to me personally. 

One of the realizations that I have come to see, is that many people will try to talk you out of your dreams. 

They will tell you that you’re “selfish” for wanting more 

Arrogant if you want a nice car or house 

Lazy if you want to work less and travel the world

Selfish if you want to break away from your current environment and elevate yourself. 

People get so uncomfortable when they see someone with the same background as them, trying to chase down their happiness.

They start criticizing your mentality with their insecurities and limitations…

Success makes other people uncomfortable because it reminds them of what they “could have been” had they just done the work.

The more ambitious you are…

The more criticism you are going to face.

The thing that most people don’t realize is that they will never have what they criticize other for. 

They have already told themselves in their own minds that what they are criticizing is bad…even if in reality they wish they had it.

No matter what you do... no matter how good you are... no matter how much good you do... there are going be people who have a problem with it.

You could cure cancer and people still hate you for it.

So my advice is to start living life doing exactly what you want.

Put your head down & work hard as fuck for a decade.

And when you start finding the things that make you happy inside…

Have someone take a picture.

And then post it on the internet to piss those people off.

And when someone asks you why you want the things that you want…

“Because I like it” is a perfectly acceptable reason for 99% of the things you feel the need to explain yourself for.

Remember that.
👇🏽Real talk below⁠👇🏽
⁠

I wasn't initially going to post this picture because I saw it and started to pick myself apart.⁠
⁠
How often do you do that when you see a picture of yourself?⁠
⁠
I empower other women for a living.  Like, truly live and breathe it with every ounce of my soul.⁠
⁠
We see SO MANY different body types.....scars that tell stories, cellulite in all the places, stretch marks that signify life held in their womb or milk for their babies, tattoos from lives lived many years prior and they are each SO BEAUTIFUL.⁠
⁠
So why is it that it's so easy to not show myself the same love that I share so easily with others?⁠
⁠
cherryblossompostpartum reminds us often it's ok to feel any one way, it's just not ok to stay there.⁠
⁠
So in case you share a body type that is not what bs society has deemed "perfection" (which spoiler alert doesn't exist!)⁠
⁠
I hope you embrace every inch of your body that tells YOUR story and is really just a shell for your soul anyways.⁠
⁠
My self talk went something like this:⁠
⁠
🤍I make myself a priority by choosing to work out multiple times a week⁠
⁠
🤍I am strong and have more energy then ever before⁠
⁠
🤍I am healthy and balanced physically and emotionally⁠
⁠
I am a boss and this picture signifies the sweat and muscle that's been poured into our beautiful space that we get to share with our community.⁠🔥
⁠
⁠
⁠
Much love,⁠
Your doula Alyssa⁠

Boom! And another one for my buyers! 

These awesome buyers came to me last week with a plan of wanting to sell their current home, and finding a home on an acre with an RV garage and no HOA for their toys. 

Within one week, we had them pre-qualified, found this amazing brand new build, locked it up under contract beating out other offers on it, and then got their current home under contract immediately for top dollar! 

It can happen that fast 🙂 

If you have been thinking about making a move soon, now may be a good time.

I am one lucky man! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Taking time on the 1st of the last month in 2020, to count my blessings.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We celebrated my wife's birthday on Monday and she truly is the glue to our family and holds our crazy world together. She's an amazing wife, mother, friend, and I'm extremely proud to do life with her by my side. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And even though the boys in the house are outnumbered 😅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wouldn't have it any other way 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These girls bring so much to energy, love, and lets be honest, some craziness to the house but it wouldn't be HOME without these 3 ladies 🏠
Visualize it.

Set your goals.

Reverse engineer the steps to get there.

Build a plan of action.

Execute.
You’ve gotta Pay Up...

This is how life works. ⁣
⁣
If you have a goal or something in life you want to achieve... 

One way or another you WILL pay for it.⁣
⁣
Option 1: You can pay up now and invest the time, money, and emotional energy required to make it a reality⁣
⁣
Or ⁣
⁣
Option 2: you can pay later. 

When you pay later, you will be paying with regret and left wondering “what if” for the rest of your life. ⁣
⁣
Don’t be so short sighted that you make your future self pay for it. ⁣
⁣
Make the time for it now, spend money on it now, invest the blood, sweat, tears, and hours into it now. 

Put all of your emotional energy into it now so that you don’t have to pay the price later.

⁣So.... when will you pay? 

Now or later in life? 

I hope you believe in yourself enough to pay the price now.
When you realize that your vision and purpose is bigger than just you...You will succeed.

You know why?

Because believe it or not you’re the very first person that will quit on you.

The vision that you live every single day for has to be so important that when you want to quit this “vision” drives you forward.

Personal gain and recognition isn’t a good enough reason to live your life in my eyes.

A paycheck is not a good enough reason to live your life.

Proving someone wrong is not a good enough reason to live your life.

These are all short term motivators that will eventually cause you to burn out if they are your only motivators.

This is why WE will always be greater than just ME.

Those that know me know that I am a believer in being the very best version of ME, and constantly pushing myself to grow... but it’s also tied both physically and emotionally to being the driving force behind pushing those around me to grow as well.

When you have a big picture that involves many to achieve big things...great things start to happen.

You will work harder.

You will take more pride in the processes.

You will be more strong willed to not quit when things get challenging.

So...

As you are reading this post I ask you this.

Do you love what you do?

Do you live every single day for something that you feel great about?

If that answer is NO...

then I would suggest you start to reevaluate what it is that you do and or why you do it.

Your life is short and the journey is a hell of a lot more fun when you have people to celebrate with.
Mondays are my fav! Especially when they start off with photos and video for a new listing! 🏠
