Drama and conflict are everywhere in our lives today. In the books, movies and popular media we consume. And in the relationships that make up our lives.
Sociologists and healthcare professionals often say that the dynamic roles people play in relationships form a drama triangle. Each of us can, and has, claimed one or more of these roles in our lifetime. Understanding how to overcome these challenges is critical in learning how to interact with others and in living the life you want.
My guest today has found her way through the drama triangle and lived to tell about it. Let’s talk with Rachel Graham about her journey.

Hi and welcome to Coffee with Claire!
Today’s theme is going to be about resilience.
The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
At the beginning of anything new, there’s always excitement and an adrenaline rush as you build that something that has never been built before.
You figure it out, you put processes together, and pretty soon, you have a well-oiled machine that you understand and know you can depend on.
Then, one day, you hit a snag–something completely unexpected, and out of your control. Everything you worked for is suddenly gone. You’re left standing at a crossroads. Which road do you choose?
Path #1 is easy. You quit. You throw in the towel. You decide that the thing that happened was a sign that you weren’t supposed to do it anymore anyways.
Path #2 is you pick yourself up, gather the pieces you can find, and re-invent and re-create those that you can’t. It takes time and it takes money that you didn’t think you had, but you find ways to make it work.
Not everyone will pick Path #2. It may not be feasible. But those who are successful know there’s going to be up’s and downs. You’re never 100% right, or profitable, or marketable or whatever other adjective you want to inject. However, it’s the people who have resilience in their blood that are willing to try again. Maybe do it a little differently this next time around, but it’s definitely worth it in their minds.
The resilience I am speaking about specifically is Coffee with Claire, and how I came to the conclusion that just because we hit a major bump in the road didn’t mean we veered off the road, took the wheels off the bus, and walked home. Would it have been easy? Sure. But I wasn’t done, and I wasn’t going to give up.

In today’s buying and selling markets we always hear about “the experience.”
Well, just what is the buying experience and why should it matter to me?
When it comes to buying a home, probably the biggest purchase anyone makes in their lifetime, it is incredibly important. Having the right team in place to help you find and then buy the home of your dreams is more than salesmanship and bravado. It’s about experience, market savvy and a passion for the business – and your clients.
Our guest today has made a career from building relationships and focusing on outstanding results for her clients. Let’s talk with Tonya Walker about what sets her apart from her peers and how she creates the “Ultimate Real Estate Experience.”Post Views: 562
