The way i talk

Morgan gets made fun of for the way he talks.

Me too.

Morgan for his accent.

Me for my paradoxical ideas.

We just live the way we talk, ya’ll.

Turning the home page

Personally, in 2021 around town in my car, i drove 1,500 miles. Roughly 125 miles per month. Walked, jogged or bicycled to whatever needed.

Turning the home page.

Pretend you’re new

Disney Cast Member Service Awards on a desk
We are so glad to be all moved in. We love living in a safe, private, respectful, well run location.

Pretend you’re new to your neighborhood.

Behave like a busy professional couple who, like nearly every other household on the street – on all the streets – is too busy to know who their neighbors are.

This is perfect.

Keep to yourself.

Don’t get involved in any neighborhood drama.

Trust no one?

Pretty close.

What say ye?

Everyone is a reporter

big intersection and building under construction
In todays world, assume you are always on a camera.

In 2022…

Everyone is a reporter.

This phenomenon started years ago. It’s nothing new.

Some iPhone reporters are exceptional at capturing the present moment. They have reflexes, ideas, and instincts that others under-focus on or ignore.

And so it goes, even in the smallest corners of the world.

HOA SWOT analysis

homeowner association dues reminder
Weakness, threat, and opportunity all-in-one. Dues haven’t been increased in 26 years. Easy fix, raise the dues immediately to $430 simply to have the same buying power as $200 did in 1997.

HOA SWOT analysis:

Strengths…

  • Privacy
  • Large lots
  • Association Lake lot
  • Proximity to Walt Disney World (Disney World is on the same lake)

Weaknesses…

  • Alluring to ambitious investors
  • Dysfunctional HOA leadership (see photo)
  • Member apathy

Opportunities…

  • Professionalize entire HOA structure and processes
  • Move from legacy paper systems to digital
  • Move from do-it-yourself mindset to hiring professionals
  • By-Law language to ensure residential in perpetuity (no vacation home rental conversions)
  • Hire Property Management Company

Threats…

  • Member apathy
  • Investors not interested in residential living
  • Legal vulnerabilities from old-school, small-town mindset
  • Ticking clock (apathy)
