We all know that exercising your brain is just as important as exercising your body, so in the spirit of brain health, I’m giving you today’s “workout.” You can thank me later (or maybe curse me).

Take a look at this picture. Based on the shape and arrangement of the pathways, which cup do you think gets coffee first?

This puzzle has stumped thousands of people online and it definitely got me, too. Probably should’ve had a cup of coffee first...

Let me know your best guess (no Googling allowed) and write me back. I’m looking forward to hearing your answer!

Do you ever look around at people on the street and notice that just about everyone is on their phones, lost in their own worlds? And I admit to being one of them (at least some of the time).  I admit sometimes I am one of them!

That’s why I was interested to read what one luxury apartment building is doing to encourage residents to put their phones down and be more social. For $700 a year, they offer an amenity package that’s filled with social activities like movie nights, mixology classes, and even “field trips” to go apple picking.

What do you think? Is this something you’d want to see implemented in your neighborhood?

If you’ve ever wanted to own a pool table but had nowhere to put it, check this out:

It’s called the Fusion Table and I can only imagine how popular my dinner parties would be if I owned one. You could be sitting around enjoying a delicious meal one minute and challenging your guests to a game of pool the next – how cool is that? I love items that have multiple functions – might have to put this on my Christmas list.

What do you think? Would you want one of these in your dining room?

When summer ends, some people cover their patio furniture and stash their gardening tools away until the first sign of spring in the next year. More and more people, however, are embracing the great outdoors outside their homes with a number of interesting landscape trends.

Fire features are big, with everything from new twists on fire pits (like the glass gas fire pit, below) to outdoor fireplaces controlled with your smartphone.

Plan a fall garden with as much fervor as you’d plan your spring garden, focusing on plantings like boxwoods and maples that reach peak bloom during fall and winter.

And when you can’t stand the cold any longer, you can bring the green inside with whole walls made out of green plants and tropical gardens nurtured inside

Ever wanted to live in a governor’s mansion but the idea of running for office doesn’t sound all that appealing?

The good news is there’s one for sale in North Dakota. The bad news? You’ll have to move it yourself and that alone will cost you at least $250,000. Oh, and it might have a little asbestos and lead paint, but that just gives it character, right?

The reason the 10,000 square-foot mansion is for sale is because the state is planning to build a more modern $5 million structure. They’d like to preserve the old one, but if no one puts in a reasonable offer by the end of September, they’re going to demolish it. Seems a little more complicated than your transaction, doesn’t it?

What do you think of the mansion? Worth saving or not?

1. Start small

If you have never invested in real estate, start small.  No one's has ever looked back and said, "My first deal was my best" learning how to read the contracts , build your network, and develop a good eye for it only comes from experience. Commit as little as possible while you get some notches under your belt. - Tai Lopez

2. Think Big

Chase the deal, not your budget.  There's not enough money to make the smaller deals worthwhile.  Go big from the start - 6 units, minimum.  - Grant Cardone

3. Understand the economics

The real estate deals that look the prettiest and are easiest to find yield the lowest returns.  A strong economy, high consumer confidence, historically low inventory levels, and extremely low interest rates
