How to use OPM to invest in real estate.

OPM-Other Peoples Money.  A business acquaintance of mine asked me how I get other people to invest with me when it comes to real estate.  The key to this scenario is trust and credibility.  These two vital elements will comprise 70% of the tools required to start using OPM.  The other 30% will be your investment and your plan.  Your investment should be a great deal to invest in and your plan should be well thought out and include your strategy and solid financial projections.  Read my blog "A…See More

Build your Future!

I believe that balance in life brings a sense of wholeness and harmony to your life.  My mentor Robert Kiyosaki says there are 8 "integrities" that bring success to you.  I would like to share those here:#1.  Mission-  everyone has a personal mission or purpose to walk out.  Understand yours and align your everyday life accordingly.#2.  Team- I have written about this many times.  Especially when it comes to real estate and business.  It is a team sport.  Make sure to assemble your team of…See More

How to Make More Money.

This is by far the single best way to make more money.  First, there are two kinds of money problems; having not enough money and having too much money.  I have enjoyed both problems and I came to the conclusion that I prefer the latter problem.  The best way to make more money is to increase your financial intelligence.  It's about education and learning.  Taking on a new challenge, the road less traveled, and not being afraid to try something new.  People love to play it safe.  It makes sense…See More

Can you see the end at the beginning?

Posted on March 26, 2014 at 4:44pm 3 Comments

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.
