Well last Monday was my first day working for BMW. I have to say thus far as far as jobs go, it’s been pretty fun and dare I say bearable??
Hmmmm let’s see….what have I been doing all week? Basically driving BMW’s. lol And no I’m not kidding.
My favorite so far was this one:
That one above is a convertible 328i. It was pretty hot!
And than drum roll please……I learned to drive a manual on this puppy on Friday:
That one is a 335i. Nothing like learning to drive stick on SOMEBODY ELSE’S BMW, eh? 🙂 (and in case you’re wondering……I did a pretty good job driving after my learning session (the other guy that got hired with me taught me how to drive stick when we were out for one of our joy rides.)
Now as far as real estate goes…that’s what you really wanna know right? Well I have to tell you that since not working a “normal” job in soooooooooo long (over 4 years) that this week was extremely exhausting. Not only did I start this job this week, but Kathy was away for work in Houston, Tx and we (aka I) had Joe for the week. Luckily our next door neighbor friggin rocks so she helped me out a great deal last week.
The bottom line is that the job is bearable right now BUT overall it’s definitely giving me the motivation that I need to do what I need to do. This week is the start of my new schedule…basically work 2 nights and 3 days (and switch every other Friday and Saturday. So if I work Friday, I have off Saturday and vice versa.) I think I’ll need this week and perhaps next week (hopefully not) to get situated with my schedule and to hopefully not be exhausted when I get home and then I can concentrate on working my real estate in.
I did start re-reading this Dave Lindahl book: Multi-Family Millions: How Anyone Can Reposition Apartments for Big Profits(affiliate link.)
I want to concentrate on finding MOTIVATED sellers of apartment buildings. So I have to really figure out how to get at them….btw, I think my father is my first highly motivated multi-family owner. I’m going to speak with him in more detail this week. More on that in another post.
But if any of you folks have ideas on how to find motivated apartment owners, please let me know. I’m going to try to sift through the foreclosure notices and try to get my hands on those that are filing evictions or that get judgments on their behalf but I’m foreseeing some issues already with that…..but I’ll see what I can do. Any other ideas?
