Life at Tall Pines Inn has been sweet and demanding - and lovingit!I cannot believe that I have not jumped in here since February.I have been caught in a whirlwind of sorts. Taking on cabin lodging of 14cabins with 21 units has been an undertaking that we could not have anticipated. Parts of it have come easy and other parts seem insurmountable. Certainly more questions than answers!Check us out on TripAdvisor and our success is apparent - for mereading TripAdvisor is like needing to pinch myse

Hello fellow WA'ers! I am waiting on a new ISP but for now I have to work off of my Hot Spot and I'm in the Ozarks. Eureka Springs is pretty much in a hole so connectivity is not the best. Please be patient with me!! Last night I could not connect and this morning the connection is more cooperative. We are scheduled to close our sale of Tall Pines Inn on March 1. So far, so good, but we have a lot of work to do. I look forward to sharing a few pictures with you. Our property includes a 4-plex a

I can't believe it is only mid-week and how much I have to show for it. It is not bragging to be sure; it's more like shaking my head in disbelief. Perhaps, as a result of being a part of the amazingly energetic SWAG, maybe it has to do with getting the information that our financing for Tall Pines Inn in Eureka Springs, AR was approved, or perhaps because it's below zero with 12 inches of snow and I just have "cabin fever."So far I have:My new domain/website for SWAG. I started a little skepti

6 Ways to Maximize Images in PostsPictures can be distracting!You have heard it and you live it. You should add lots of images to your post - less is more, unless it's adding images to a post. Right? Not so fast.Sure your knee jerk reaction is to think that lots of images convert better. The more bight bold images you can stack your website with the better your sales will be, the more authority your site will gain, and the more traffic your site will have.If a picture paints a thousand words, w

If you do only one thing for your "business" in 2018, buy this book:The title is simply "Mary Kay," published in 1981, and it is a real testament to the pure genius this woman was in business.

If you can absorb and live by the principles this

New Year: Anyone Can Have a Chance for a Do-OverThe New Year for many of us is like hitting the reset button. Everyone knows the unwelcome site of a browser that just won't open. We sit and watch that little gray circle spin and spin - ugh - so frustrating. Many will give up and shut down, reset the router, reboot the computer, or a combination of the above depending on how desperate you feel. We do the same come New Year's Eve. For many of us, we see it as one big ritual to hit the reset butto
