Interest Rates to remain low. Now is the time to invest!

The most recent Fed Open Committee meeting seemed to indicate that the Federal Fund rate will continue to remain low for now.  Most analyst think that rates will stay low through 2015.  I believe the real estate market will benefit from this and the next 4-5 years should be good.  As always make sure that your investment strategy incorporates a buy and sell for cash so that you can buy and hold for wealth type of strategy.  This type of strategy will position you for the long term and will…See More

$100,000 profit using none of my own money.

In some of my past posts I have shared about the different forms of money. Knowledge, credibility, partnerships, to name a few.  I know that when it comes to real estate investing funding is always important.  For many inexperienced investors funding seems to be a major obstacle.  The reality however is that money is the easy part.  The real challenge lies in finding a great deal.  If you have a great deal the money practically falls in your lap.  Let me share about a great deal I am getting…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!

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…

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.

Mike, I know we were going to try and talk a week or so ago. I have had a ton on my plate.

We were going to discuss some coaching, presently I am working with Dan(been working 1 on 1 with him for a few months now) and don't have the extra cash to put into another coach today. But I hope maybe we can work something out in the near future. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.

Thank you for the welcome, Mike.  I look forward to soaking up info on the subject in preparation for putting a plan together.  I fully believe in developing income streams but have only talked about it.  I am ready to look at this to build for the future.  I once had a GA real estate license but, unfortunately, let it lapse.  That was very short-sighted. I will be interested to read how group members are using real estate related businesses to build wealth.
