Cancer

June 22, 2006 at 11:55 am (barry bonds, boston, Boston Redsox, cancer, internet, massachusetts, Pan Mass Challange, PMC, real estate, realtor, Uncategorized)

My friend Jen Morrison called me from her car last night to bring down her sodas that she had left in the office fridge. Not a task I like because I would have to walk twenty yards to the fridge then go down two flights of stairs. As I handed over the two twenty four ounce cans I noticed they were not sodas  but a rather a liquid meal with 2000 mg of caffeine with 51 grams of protein. Enough energy to keep an elephants up for a week. Maybe she was going to a Barry Bonds party. No the drinks were for her grandmother who was fatally ill with throat cancer. I felt awful but almost started to laugh because she was wearing a funny bike outfit.

Jen was training for the Pan Mass Challenge. A two day 192 mile bike ride across Massachusetts,starting in Sturbridge and ending in Provincetown. The goal to bring awareness and hopefully a cure for cancer. Last year alone it raised 23 million dollars with 99% of the money going directly to research. Cancer the second leading killer is America has almost directly affected all family's. Today I am asking everyone to not super size the extra value meal and donate just $1.

9th Grade Picture

June 21, 2006 at 1:49 pm (9th grade picture, ashton kutcher, dog, george clooney, internet, myspace, myspace.com, real estate, realtor, tom, Uncategorized)

Personally I wanted to thank all of my viewers 500 plus per day and growing everyday.  You have been positive, supportive and helpful. However, there is always one bad apple in the crowd.  My favorite response left on myspace blog "Does your girlfriend know what you look like in your freshman year class picture?" No but I want to keep it that way. I stood about five two and one hundred and five pounds. Reminds you of George Clooney. Maybe Ashton Kutcher. The only thing funnier than my 9th grade picture is her current picture. Her only two friends on myspace.com her dog which doesn't count because dogs do not add themselves and Tom the creator of myspace. Tom is everyone friend. He may want to reconsider because she may post his 9th grade picture.

My Brother Jason

June 20, 2006 at 1:31 pm (cingular, dallas cowboys, divorce, internet, myspace, myspace.com, Uncategorized, verizon, wordpress)

My brother Jason made a confession to me last week. He jumped at the opportunity to start an Internet company because he wanted to spend more time with me. I asked him to become part of the company because of his ingenious creativity, strong dedication, and sleek writing(http://jasonganz.wordpress.com/). This by the way was during the mourning week of my grandma Magda. That made me start to think. I thought and thought about the past. There was a seven year span the last last two years of high school and five years of college  were my brother and I did not spend much time together.  This could be blamed on my parents divorce , myself living in different states, or Jason being a Dallas Cowboys fan. Since the inception of the company last September we had countless meeting, traded over 1,000 plus emails, and made verizon bill go through the roof (he refuses to give up Cingular). This time together made me realize nothing is more important than family.

MYSPACE

June 19, 2006 at 1:07 pm (internet, myspace, myspace.com, nascar, paris hilton, real estate, realtor, sister, Uncategorized)

After a weekend of getting burned at the beach I passed out in the car on the ride home. Wearing SPF 4 and passing out on the beach the first time out is not smart. I was woken by my phone ringing crazy. An unidentified caller. Usually a telemarkter or even worse someone you know that blocked their number that you really did not want to talk to. "What the hell? I hate you? I am not your sister anymore." Dalia Ganz was one very unhappy 23 year old. The words come on the heels as one of my employees thought it was a good idea to add every one of my sister's friends to my profile from myspace.com  His goal was to build up my network on myspace.com. Intentions were good, but perhaps we should have talked to my sister.

Hungry. Very Hungry. This usually describes the appetitie an animal in the dead of winter who has not eaten in a month. This animal is my favorite employee who decided to move to North Carolina because Nascar and wife beaters had a nice ring to it.  His only project is to make me friends on myspace.com  After three hours and countless tries we have over 150 friends including Paris Hilton, a basketball player, and countless rappers.

Ethical Decision

June 16, 2006 at 2:43 am (boston, ethical, internet, real estate, realtor, Uncategorized, waitress)

The little black binder.  Not the book with all the missing naughty cell phone numbers. The one that the waitress placed my credit card with the check inside. I hate opening it because it is always more than I originally thought. Its easy to miscalculate especially after the third beer. Then I just seem to be figuring everything at a 40% discount. However, as I opened the binder the bill read $40.12 not bad for dinner for four at an upscale restaurant in Boston. Problem was  I was not Addison Silverman and it was not my check. It was my turn to pay for the group which we regularly go out. How lucky my friends thought. Everyone wanted to me to sign and go. Not me.  I got the waitress and gave me the correct bill. Only $135.78. The difference was an easy night sleep.

Off To India

June 14, 2006 at 11:20 pm (american, call center, India, internet, real estate, realtor, Uncategorized)

Last night I was relaxingat my friends house and a roommate was packing what it seemed to be for a safari. Five suitcases and her whole family helping her pack. It was not for a safari but rather she was off to train a call center of people in India for three weeks. What she does not realize is she helping the people that will replace herself. She might as apply for her India citizenshipif she wants to continue to work for her company. The loss of American jobs oversees is growing at an alarming rate. Certain company's advertise immediate customer satisfaction with the ability to speak to a live person right away. It is a live person directly from India sitting in a call center packed tighter than a can of saradines. I am not concerned with the people of India rather than Americans. Actually I am also worried how my friends roommate will pay her rent.

Daddy

June 14, 2006 at 1:53 am (grey hair, internet, just for men, real estate, realtor, supercut, Uncategorized)

Physical appearance has an impact on the way you are treated. As as successful 28 year old business man I try to make sure I look my best every day.  My girlfriend has noticed all of my gray hairs which I try to hide by keeping my hair short. My explanation to her is for every one gray hair represents one dollar I have spent on her. Six months into our relationship, there is not a man on earth that could make that ratio work. Recently I visited her at her day care center for pre-k. The kids asked is this your dad? It is time for another haircut.

My Apology

June 13, 2006 at 2:01 pm (David Lee Roth, Hillman, internet, Mantown, real estate, realtor, Uncategorized)

As everyone knows I got in a little trouble with Word-press and got my original screen name revoked. Other bloggers did not find it amusing when they write about Coffee and I responded with a zingy one liner that linked back to my website. I have all the biogs back except the last one. I guess it was too funny to give back.  David Lee Roth really needed it. The Hillman morning show ratings are going down faster than the Titanic. You can expect my daily biogs to continue.

Bad Idea

June 13, 2006 at 1:40 pm (condo, honda civic, internet, massachusetts, real estate, realtor, revere, Uncategorized)

I attended a party last night at the Ritz Carlton celebrating the development 288 south beach style condos ( 60 percent glass, 40 percent white) on Revere Beach, MA. The prices ranges from 500k to a million plus with your car insurance going up the same. The developer was also trying to sell me a fifty thousand Honda Civic  but I was not interested.  He has the right idea have no food and serve only one drink all vodka with a splash of blue fruit punch that would get you so drunk after your second you swear you wear in South Beach. The evening was capped off with me getting accusedof stealing an extra towel. I can not blame they they thought it was Revere.

Bounced Check

June 13, 2006 at 1:32 pm (bank, check, equity line, internet, real estate, realtor, Uncategorized)

I noticed in my mailbox seven thin letters from my credit union. Thin letters are never good, they remind me of all my rejectionsfrom colleges, jobs, and birthday cards with no cash. I opened all the letters and they said I bounced all my checks. I went to the credit union and they explained that I had plenty of money in my savings account but the checks were from my equity line.  It is ironic they call it an equity line in today's market because I have no equity.  They should call it a debt line. They have a special program called 115% financing and they do not even know it.
