Relationships on the Run lead to Ruin!

Posted on March 28, 2015 at 12:52pm 0 Comments

I heard the statement above on a podcast recently and, being the 3R's of Success guy, it really resonated with me.  After all, look at the three R's... I love it!  Beyond that alliteration, however, it highlighted some issues we all battle in our family life, career life, church life, any aspect of life, really.  It highlights two truths central to whether or not we will enjoy Success:

Truth #1 - Relationships Take Quality Time!

Leadership that NEVER Fails

Posted on March 22, 2015 at 8:35am 4 Comments

Here is a description of a Leader that I think we would all choose to follow.  One that:

  • Never gives up
  • Cares more for others than self
  • Is not envious of others' success
  • Is not prideful
  • Does not let success go to his or her head
  • Does not force his or her will on others
  • Is not always about "me first"
  • Never flies off the handle
  • Does not keep track of others failures
  • Does not revel when others have to…

Four Keys to Managing Setbacks

It is a beautiful fall day. The air has that unmistakably crisp, clean quality  that remembers summer but anticipates fall.  The stadium is rocking with 100,000 plus, all dressed in the home team's colors as they are set to receive the kick-off.  The drum roll and war cry reaches a crescendo as the kicker kicks-off to the home team's receiver who takes possession of the ball one yard deep in his own end zone.  The receiver rockets to his right and a wall of blockers start taking on the…


What Are Your Kids Learning From You?

Posted on April 5, 2014 at 5:57pm 1 Comment

I am living a blessed life.  A result, in part, of learning from my Father.
My Dad taught me a lot of important lessons by example.  He was a hard worker.  He was sent off to military school as a tween, then did a tour in the Marines, followed by cooking and managing in restaurants from the Ozark mountains to Washington D.C.  He often took second jobs in construction to make ends meet, and to pay finance payments on campers and boats, as well as fishing and hunting gear with…

Here are a few ways to invest in real estate without using debt financing:  Partners, they bring money to the table in exchange for a share of the profits or cash flow.

Joint Ventures, if you have strong bank/business relationships there is a possibility that you can help them liquidate some of their REO/distressed assets.

Self-directed IRA, use your retirement funds to invest.  You can also pool other retirement funds if needed.  Certain rules apply to maintain tax deferred status but this is a great way to get excellent returns in your IRA and maintain control over your investments.

REIT, this is a fund that will accept your cash and can give the small investor a chance to invest in an asset that he, otherwise could not afford.  You won't have much control in a REIT.

Hope this is helpful.

Patrick, here is a story for your upcoming book.  

I attained millionaire status at the age of 40.  I continued to work because I loved what I did.  I had a combination of stocks, annuities and real estate as investments.  My real estate portfolio had the most impact on achieving a 7 figure net worth.  All the while I considered myself your average working guy.  I owned a Honda and a mini van not a Rolls Royce, I had a Timex not a Rolex, I lived in a nice 2000 sq ft home in a working class neighborhood.  The key for me was learning how money worked and understanding principles of stewardship and investing.  I made lots of mistakes and I had great victories.  I took risks but always minimized them with knowledge and expertise.  Here is a blog I wrote to share some of my experience with my Wealth Building Group. 

Financial Freedom is Within Your Grasp

If you are like me then you don't mind making money while you sleep.  I am speaking of passive cash flow.  There is no better time to start your passive cash flow stream than right now especially when it comes to real estate.  The house that you see on the group page is a home that I currently own in a good neighborhood with a great yard and was owned by a bank.  I paid 139K to the bank and today that house has a market value of 260k.  I bought the house in the summer of 2009 made some renovations and placed a sign on the lawn" For Rent".  Within 15 minutes a passerby stopped and asked if they could take a look...and the rest is history.  This is a fairly typical example of what is happening all over the country right now in the real estate market.  I was able to acquire a property that cash flows and increased my net worth at the same time.  My strategy is long term (10 years) and I have several other properties that are similar to that scenario.  That doesn't mean that I won't sell off a property now and then nor does it mean that I am opposed to accessing some of my equity by using bank financing.  Those are options that are always on the table for me.  I do not know of another asset class right now that can produce those types of returns and help you reach your financial goals and bring you that much closer to financial independence.  For me financial independence is having enough passive income to pay my personal living expenses.  Once I reach that point I am truly wealthy.  Why, because wealth is truly measured in time.  If you stopped working today how long could you live and pay your bills before your money ran out?  Is it 6 months?  60 months?  That is your wealth.  Imagine that you live a simple life and all you need is $1500 a month to live.  Once your passive income reaches that point theoretically, you no longer have to work and your wealth becomes infinite.  Real estate is just one of the 4 major asset classes that I have used to bring me closer to my financial goals.  Let me know your thoughts about my investment strategy.  If real estate is an investment class that you would like to explore further...I am here to help!

Hi Patrick,

So glad you've joined up in the Finding your Voice group. 

The best way to learn how the group works is to get involved in the discussion. We have an exciting one going on right now. We are encouraging and holding each other accountable in journaling our "successes" and "safety steps". Just like life - no lurkers, only participants. 

Congratulations on finishing your eBook. That's quite an accomplishment. We are in the last stages of finalizing our third book. I'd be happy to share some of what we've learned in the process. 

By the way, here's a link to my other community.

Hello Micheal,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
