Watch Your Words

I’m just going to admit it: I’m swamped, along with the rest of the staff here at REALTOR® Magazine. The result is a growing stack of half-read books on my desk that I just haven’t had the chance to share with you just yet.

But it’s the good kind of busy around here. The call for entries for the Good Neighbor Awards opened today, and we’re up to our ears in awesome applicants for this year’s 30 Under 30 competition. And of course, we’re working on getting our March/April issue out, which will be all about personal finances and managing money.

I did want to point Book Scan readers to a great interview piece written by our own Melissa Tracey in her regular Relationship Management column called “How the Words You Say May be Costing You Business.” She interviews author Dan Seidman, who recently wrote The Secret Language of Influence and shares five “bad words” that you should ban from your vocabulary. It’s a great read, and hopefully it’ll slake your thirst for bookish real estate content for a moment, while I catch my breath.

See you next week!
