Retirement is obsolete!

Ebby Halliday:  A legend within her time

One of America's top realtors for over 50 years.


Dallas, Texas: Ebby Halliday started like most of us, with nothing but the love of her family. This episode is classic Americana, a rags to riches story. Literally Ebby went from the Great Depression to a billion dollar business.  She is truly an American legend and one of today's pioneers. She started her business in 1946 and today she has over 1500 independent realtors, hundreds who have become millionaires on her watch.

Ebby  will tell us how she broke through the gender barriers long before there ever was a feminist movement, how she found the person who replaced her at the top and why she gave the company to her employees.

 He is having too much fun and he is on mission.  He is working on his next invention.  He has hit his stride and he is seeing more deeply and clearly into the very essence of life and light.  His inventions are literally and figuratively changing the world and the way we see it.

Key Question:  Isn't life about doing better?

You've heard the report: "Yes, he retired then he died in less than two years."

Just when we are getting wise, we stop? What sense does that make?

When you own your own business you decide how long you want to work. All these people do just that. When we did Joseph Johnson's story he was 95 years old and still driving. He died at his desk at 101. We can all turn the "old formulas" on their head. We all have a lot of years of creative, productive, even transformative, work ahead.   More...      Prior homepage...
