My client has the recent honor of making the Inc 500. They are a growing company in Atlanta who help real estate investors source distressed or wholesale properties. They then fix-up, rent or flip the properties for profits. They also act as consultants to educate investors so they make the best choices with their investment money. 

Inc. magazine ranked Atlanta Investing, a leading real estate investment company, No. 67 on its 26th annual Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Atlanta Investing is ranked No. 3 among the real estate companies listed nationally.

“If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can’t live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

No More Robocalls – Let’s Create A Political Do Not Call Registry.

I recently learned in a Network World article about the do not call registry that politicians among others, are exempt. Exempt! There is a new non-profit that wants to stop these political telemarketing “robocalls.” I invite you to sign up for noticifaction when they start a registry – I know I don’t want to receive all those automated calls and the last local election in Forsyth County, GA was a nightmare. Our answering machine couldn’t keep up with those calls.

Stop the Robocalls!

Thanks for contacting Citizens for Civil Discourse (a non partisan non profit corporation), the home of the National Political Do Not Contact Registry!This is a grass roots initiative.   We the people need to take back control of the political discussion and tell politicians not to call us (or mail or email) if we ask them not to do so.What is next?
Building the Political Do Not Call Registry website and database –-> launch in mid to late September, 2007.

  • Once it is launched, you will be notified and asked to officially sign up and join the Registry.

What you can do in the meantime:

  • If appropriate, please tell your friends and family about this exciting non profit by asking them to visit:

  • Let us know why you care so much about this issue.  Do you have a story to tell?  Do you remember a particularly disagreeable phone call you received?   What would you like to tell the politicians (from all parties)?

Please feel free to contact us with any further questions you may have.

It’s not easy being green.

I saw an Inconvenient Truth a few months ago. It was disturbing and I think there really is something negative going on our planet that we have caused.

At the end of the doc, they tell you ways that you can make a difference in your daily lives. I liked that and was comforted to know that we have already been doing many green things for a few years.

Use an automated thermostat. Recycle. Reduce trips out. Run the dishwasher and laundry at night. Replace energy efficient lightbulbs when your old ones burn out. Wrap your water heater. Replace air filters regularly. Telecommute. Insulate your home. Use energy efficient appliances. Check. Check. Check. Check. Check. Check.

I don’t have an energy efficient car now although I had a VW Jetta that rocked and was efficient.

I was disturbed to know that you shouldn’t rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. I’m a rinser. I admit it and it’s a habit I cannot break. Maybe because our frickin’ dishwasher will not rinse everything and I end up having to wash it.

Other things I didn’t know – unplug electronic devices as they use energy even when turned off. Computers, hairdryers, cellphone chargers, tvs and the like.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the documentary, it’s worth seeing. And for more ways to make changes in our daily lives, check out these sites:
