We had our house painted a few days ago. I was thrilled with the outcome. The painters were very professional. They were on-time each day, quiet, respectful and cleaned up after themselves. The best part was they were reasonably priced.I chose this company based on a referral from another agent. Referrals do not always work, but in this case, they were right on. When the salesperson came out to estimate the job, I could tell they were the company I wanted to hire. When you hear words like “We want to earn your business”, or “Here is my cellphone call me with any questions.”, you know that he is invested in your project.When the job was finished the estimator came back to view the work and make sure that I was satisfied with the result. I was. Before he left, I told him. “Keep up the good work.” I meant what I said. I want to refer him to other agents and associates, and I want to be sure that when I do they will get the same level of service that I received.Typically, when companies are first starting out, they go out of their way to please the customer. But far too often, as their business grows, they begin to lose sight of what made them successful.There are a lot of reasons this happens. Maybe the business grows too fast and they cannot hire enough skilled workers. Sometimes the owner grows tired of working so hard and delegates to a manager that is not as invested in the business. Or at some point greed takes over and money, not service becomes the goal.Whatever the reason, any business, whether you are a painter, a politician or a real estate agent you can never forget who you are working for. In business your reputation is everything.That is why when I say, “Keep up the good work.”, I mean it. Your future depends on it.  © 2010-2018 Joseph Domino All Rights Reserved

 Spring Baseball is back in the Valley of the Sun. Every year baseball fans from all over the world travel to Phoenix, AZ to enjoy the sunshine while watching their favorite stars and promising new prospects prepare for the major league season.This year the Cactus League will commence on February 21 with a meeting between the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals in Surprise, AZ. The spring baseball season is a month long party with the teams playing over 200 games in front of nearly 2 million happy fans.With 10 different ballparks hosting 15 teams, the Phoenix metropolitan area holds claim to the greatest concentration of professional baseball facilities found anywhere in the United States. The Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and the Texas Rangers all call Arizona their spring training home. While the rest of the nation is still feeling the effects of a long winter, Arizona will be enjoying 70 degree temperatures and clear sunny days. But don't forget to bring your sunblock. The sun in Arizona can be intense.Coming to Arizona from another city? Enjoy some of the regional cuisine from different areas of the country such as Chicago style Italian Beef, bratwurst fromWisconsin, Kansas City barbeque, and Sonoran hot dogs from Arizona. Feel free to enjoy yourself.Here is another great tip. Arrive at the game early, or go to the practice fields on an off day and you may get a chance to see your favorite player up close and personal.Want to save a few dollars? Most ballparks have lawn seats which will save you money. Bring a blanket and relax.Remember, “You can’t beat fun at the old ballpark.” © 2010-2018 Joseph Domino All Rights Reserved

 Looking for a place to visit and learn about the beauty and history of the Sonoran Desert? Then look no further than Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve.Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve is a place where you can hike, ride horseback or pedal a trail bike. Today, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve maintains an area of over 30,000 acres. It is protected from future development and provides residents and visitors a unique recreation area unlike any in the world.The group of parks is accessible through eleven trailheads and 135 miles of trails. The trails which provide for non-motorized public use allow walking or hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, bird watching, photography or simply learning about nature.The Preserve is home to over 25 different mammals ranging from mule deer and javelina to coyotes, bobcats and even mountain lions.There are more than 35 species of reptile and amphibian life, such as rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, king snakes, desert tortoises and more.Birds abound within the preserve with over 128 identified types, such as roadrunners, Gambel’s quail, cactus wrens, cardinals, mourning doves, Harris’s hawks, prairie falcons, vultures, and great horned owls.Native Cacti, such as the mighty saguaro, cholla, green and red prickly pear, golden barrel and hedgehog thrive within the park. Trees such as acacia, mesquite, ironwood, and palo verde trees provide a home for the birds.It is a place where humans can observe and enjoy mountain peaks that soar to 4,000 feet.You can travel along deep canyons and wind-swept passes, marvel at distinctive boulder outcroppings, and photograph red and gray weathered granite mountains and quartz hills.Look closely and you will find a host of Archaeological sites with petroglyphs, projectile points, pottery sherds and other evidence of ancient peoples that came before the farmers and ranchers.All of this under an umbrella of majestic blue skies. Scottsdale’s McDowell Sonoran Preserve is another of Scottsdale’s not so hidden treasures. © 2010-2018 Joseph Domino All Rights Reserved

I can’t believe it is 2020. Welcoming a new year can be a great time to look ahead toward a bright future. But looking ahead may not be enough to ensure we see clearly.For a long time, people have used the term 20/20 vision to describe perfect eyesight. The ability to see clearly. But when it comes to eyesight the term vision is incorrectly used. When describing eyesight we should say we have 20/20 Visual Acuity.We can be successful with less than perfect Visual Acuity. There many ways to correct Visual Acuity. Glasses, contact lenses, a variety of surgical procedures, and other types of visual aids.Vision, on the other hand, can be defined as: “the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come”. Yet there is only one way to improve our vision. By opening our minds to new ideas and new possibilities.Despite medical advances, clear vision is something that seems to be lacking in modern society. It seems that people are more interested in looking back. When we close our minds to new ideas and end up thinking “That is the way is supposed to be.” Or “We tried it before, it didn’t work.”. We begin to lose our vision. Instead, we choose to see things as we wish them to be rather than the possibility of what can be.While a New Year may not do anything to help our 20/20 Visual Acuity. For the New Year, we should pledge to open our minds, open our hearts and make 2020 the year of clear vision.   © 2010-2018 Joseph Domino All Rights Reserved
