Marlene Dietrich Daily Inspiration:

“The core problem is not that we are too passionate about the bad things, but that we are not passionate enough about good things.”

–Larry Crabb



We really need to step back and appreciate what we have in Orange County

We really need to step back and appreciate what we have in Orange County and what we don’t    

You really need to watch the film below:




Our lives intersect with others all day, everyday. Sometimes we know these other lives well; frequently, though, the points of connection are brief and transient. Who are these people? How might they tell their own stories?  What thoughts preoccupy their minds? What joys and troubles are coursing through their feelings? This short film, produced by the Cleveland Clinic, reminds us that empathy is our tool for beginning to know these things. It asks the question: If we could catch a glimpse of others’ stories, would we treat them differently? – See more at:  http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=3918#sthash.ewNUFpps.IRo4RX5a.dpuf


We really should step back to appreciate what we have in Orange County

What I learned from Warren Buffet about Time Management

What I learned from Warren Buffet about Time Management

Know how valuable your time is.

“No matter how much money you have, you can’t buy more time. There are only 24 hours in everyone’s day. Warren has a keen sense of this. He doesn’t let his calendar get filled up with useless meetings. On the other hand, he’s very generous with his time for the people he trusts. He gives his close advisers at Berkshire his phone number, and they can just call him up and he’ll answer the phone.

Although Warren makes a point of meeting with dozens of university classes every year, not many people get to ask him for advice on a regular basis. I feel very lucky in that regard: The dialogue has been invaluable to me, and not only at Microsoft. When Melinda and I started our foundation, I turned to him for advice. We talked a lot about the idea that philanthropy could be just as impactful in its own way as software had been. It turns out that Warren’s brilliant way of looking at the world is just as useful in attacking poverty and disease as it is in building a business. He’s one of a kind.”

Bill Gates

Newport coast food drive for the Homeless

Newport coast food drive for the Homeless  


This weekend the Marlene Dietrich Newport Coast Real Estate Team walk a number of homes leaving empty bags on door steps asking for the assistance & generosity of the local residents for the homeless.

Monday morning June 17th at 10am, we have high hopes for a great number of bags full of non perishable foods, and personal hygiene items.

Our Friday morning activities are chopping, preparing, cooking & serving a nutritious meal to the homeless down by the courthouse. You would be surprised at the people you meet. Women, children, babies, all welcome in our food line. There is a never ending need for food for these less fortunate.

Please make it a successful food drive. We and the homeless would be ever so greatful

Orange County Agent Marlene Dietrich supports Arpan Global Charities

Orange County Agent Marlene Dietrich supports Arpan Global Charities 

Marlene Dietrich is a fervent supporter of the (AGC) Arpan Global Charities’ ideals. She has recently made a large donation in their support.  She is not a medical person but feels the cause is of great need that she must find her own way to support.  Marlene Dietrich handed Dr. Sudeep Kukreja, a neonatologist at Children’s Hospital of Orange County in Orange, and founder of this Medical Volunteer Organization.  The word “Arpan” is a Hindi word, meaning “dedication” or “to give”.                                                          

AGC’s goals, consisting of two key components – service and education, are as follows:

  1. Provide free medical services to the medically underserved populations of the world, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion or nationality
  2. Provide international health education to medical students, who are the future providers of health care, through volunteer medical trips to these underserved populations
  3. Provide continuing education to international health care providers as a means towards self-sufficiency

Marlene Dietrich was impressed with the goals of AGC and promises to continue her support of their great works

Mention AGC’s name as you become her client, and when you close with her, she will repeat this donation
