Keys to Success

We as people, whether it be on a personal level or a professional level can create a desired future.  I have it heard it said that the best way to predict your future is to create it!  The key to this happening depends largely on us in that we must begin the process.  We have to take the first step and start.  It all begins with a desire, a thought, a dream.  Once we begin to prioritize those desires then our mind, which is our greatest God-given tool, begins to go to work.  Years ago I was…See More

Good Debt and Bad Debt

Here is another way to be more financially savvy with your money.  Understand how debt works for you and how it can work against you.  In the following story understand that this investor used debt to his advantage.  Consumer debt that produces no long term benefits is not the best way to use debt.  An investor friend of mine recently shared a great real estate story that truly shows the power of investing in real estate.  The story is about a janitor who bought 4 houses over a 45 year period…See More

Improve your Financial Intelligence-Get Smarter with Your Money.

In the USA financial intelligence is unappreciated and misunderstood.  Financial intelligence can be vital to your long term success.  So why do so many folks neglect increasing their financial intelligence?  For one I believe that, in our country, the educational system does not do nearly enough to promote the importance of financial education.  In my lifetime the very concept of the US dollar has completely changed.  The dollar became a currency and can now be created with relative ease.  The…See More

Get Smarter with Your Money.

In the USA there are 3 forms of income.  Earned, Portfolio, and Passive income are the 3 forms.  Earned income can be taxed as high as 50%, Portfolio income can be taxed at 15% and Passive income can be taxed at 0%.  So why do most Americans make their money in the Earned category?  I suggest that a smarter approach should be taken. That smarter approach requires education and information.  When those are combined you receive knowledge.  My friend Dan Miller says, that if you apply the…See More

Can you see the end at the beginning?

I wonder how many of us give up on a dream or pursuit of a worthwhile cause due to adverse or difficult circumstances.  Seemingly unending frustrations or discouraging results as we work toward that dream can temporarily defeat the most determined dreamer.  This reminds me of a great story about Florence Chadwick.  She was the first woman to swim the English Channel.  She spent years of training and disciplined her body to keep going long after it needed rest.  Doubt crept in as she stood on…

Change your view and your success will skyrocket!

Posted on December 9, 2013 at 11:30am 3 Comments

Here I am sitting at my desk in my new home office looking out to the west as the sun begins to make it's way down.  I see a beautiful fishing pond, a tree filled lot, beautiful homes, an amazing neighborhood and I have a great sense of peace deep within and I know that I am a success.  This view out my office window has simply served to remind me of God's blessings and goodness and that is a huge part of my success.  I mentioned that this is a NEW office because in my old office my desk was…

Finding the Money!

Posted on June 27, 2013 at 11:27am 3 Comments

Without a doubt money is never the problem when it comes to funding your next great business venture or real estate deal or your invention that is poised to change the world.  The greatest obstacle to funding your next venture is your thoughts.  In the words of one of my mentors, Robert Kiyosaki, "there is no greater obstacle than a thought."  If you THINK about it you will see that  I am on to something here.  When I understood this concept it enabled me to purchase a million dollar…

False Expectations Appearing Real

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 10:29am 2 Comments

One week ago today, the bombings occurred at the Boston Marathon. I watched a lot of the news coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt afterward. I rarely watch the news because it is depressing. 
My prayers go out to everyone in that horrific event last week. The individuals and families of those who were killed or injured most importantly, but also for what was stolen from every runner and athlete. 
My understanding is that the Boston Marathon is the…

Thank you Mike! I appreciate the welcome. What advice would you have for a newbie to the investor side of real estate on buying my first deal? Dont have much cash to spend or to hold a property at the moment so would love to do a deal as economically friendly as possible.

Mike – Thanks for the warm welcome.  I’m in the process right now of laying out my Five-Year plan to become self-employed with multiple streams of income.  Real Estate investing will be in that mix.  I look forward to learning from you and other members on this excellent site.
