How To Become Unemployed And Start Living Life…YOUR Life

Ever thought about “firing” your boss? or hoping you, yourself, got fired? Thought about
starting your own business so you don’t need to rely on the “security” of a J-O-B?

Notice, I put security in quotes. Most folks don’t realize that when you are working
for someone else, you never, ever, ever have security. You are replaceable. Always.
Please don’t ever forget that.

Anywho, most of you have been on my journey with me since investing in real estate
back in 1999 starting with mobile home deals. Fun times.

You’ve been around when I was a full-time real estate agent, a full-time real estate
investor and many things in between.

Truth be told….I sucked at managing ME. So I usually ended up at a J-O-B. Stupid,
I know. I think laziness had a lot to do with it too though…….

Anyway, when I met Kathy (my current wifey-poo,) well things really started to change
for me. She was the first partner that I ever had in my life that REALLY believed in me,
believed in my knowledge and believed that I could take US to a whole new level in
this game of life. (Now my mom has always believed in me, but well she’s not the kind
of partner I’m talking about lol That’s different, she’s my mommy.)

Kathy has always been supportive of my dreams. Problem was, Kathy and I were in a lot
of debt after we bought our house together. Especially sucked for me because I had
gotten myself out of a boatload of debt and now I was back in it.

Well, I had to do what I knew to make money quick to help us. Real estate. So, I
wholesaled deals, etc. But….wholesaling really wasn’t my passion. Sure it was easy
and it was quick money, but I really didn’t enjoy it all that much.

While I was figuring my “sh*t” out, I started working again…..ughhhhh yes a J-O-B.

Meanwhile, Kathy and I decide to look towards apartment buildings for real estate
and we decide to start an ATM business for passive income (that was in 2009.)

While we’ve been crushing it in the ATM business, we still had huge debt to crush.
So, I’ve been working for car dealerships. BMW in their internet department. Then I
went to a Dodge, Jeep and Chevy dealer to work in their finance department.

While I liked my most recent boss A LOT as a person. I really didn’t like my J-O-B.
I’m an entrepreneur!!! I will never like a j-o-b. My boss knew the type of person I
was and knew the businesses we had. She was so awesome, and would always give
me tips, ideas, etc. about the businesses. She knew I wasn’t going to be at the job
forever, that’s for sure.

The thing that was even more frustrating to me was the fact that our ATM business
more than covered my salary at both of those J-O-Bs at the dealerships. Grrrrrrrr.

D@mn debt! I tell ya. Anyway, my wonderful wife had an awesome idea of me going
part-time to concentrate on our businesses. It’s hard to be successful in your businesses
when you are working a gabillion hours a week and then coming home to a family. It’s
do-able…but really hard.

So, my boss was on board. Woohooo! Man, I started kicking tail when I went part-time.
Not even kidding. I was crushing it and taking names. Working on our ATM biz, making
offers on apartment buildings and improving my ATM Business Blueprint course so
other folks can start making passive income from ATM machines.

It was great! Then a month later my boss says to me (and I’m going to paraphrase:)
“Well, we kinda need you to come back full-time again. I know it’s not good timing.
I wish you were just ready to leave here on your own, but we’re getting more and more
busy, etc. etc.”

I was annoyed. I mean it’s only been a month or so. But oh well, that’s cool. She said
she would give me and Kathy the weekend to talk about it.

The bad thing was Joe was getting ready to end school and that’s a huge reason Kathy
wanted me to be part-time. To be home for him. Soooo, she wasn’t happy about the
whole full-time thing.

We told them that I would go back full-time in September if they needed me to. They
said they needed someone sooner. I was like ok, no problem, I understand but I can’t
do that because of Joe. Our plan was for me to be home for Joe this summer.

My boss understood and June 8, 2012 was my official last day an an employee of
someone else. Man did it feel awesome.

Truth is, we have income coming in from our ATM business, from my ATM Business
Blueprint Course and from my very last rental property. Grant it, the debt crushing
machine may be a little slowed down, but having other income streams definitely
helps.

My problem now? I put wayyyy too much pressure on myself to making a bajillion
dollars in a year to get Kathy out of her job. Sure, our ultimate goal has been to
get us both out of our jobs, but I’m putting more pressure then normal on myself
now to do that. She’s not. I am.

But I have been kicking butt. Just went to Brendon Burchards High Performance
Academy in Cali last month, just did a teleseminar for T Harv Ekers “Wealthy
Now” members last month, going to Brendon Burchards Worlds Greatest Speaker
Training in August and I’m just really excited about the future folks!

I’m happy to start living MY life…the life I want with my wife and my family.

You can decide to start living life too…..your life. Just start with 1 extra passive
income stream (or heck it doesn’t even have to be passive, but it helps for it
to be if you already have a full-time job.) Then keep adding another passive income
stream after you get cranking with the first one.

You can do it. For you. For your family. For your future.

Thank you for reading my rambling post today, I know it’s been a while, but as
you can read….I’ve had a lot on my mind and a lot going on. You guys and gals
are all awesome.

I definitely want to say a big hugeeeee, awesome thanks to Kathy. For being there
for me and believing in me. Pretty soon babydoll, you’re going to be sipping pina
coladas on the beach while I’m next to you with my laptop making us more money! 😉

kathy and carey wedding

This is a pic from our beach wedding. We wanted something casual and inexpensive. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day, a more perfect wife and a more perfect partner in business.

Announcing: The ATM Business Blueprint

Introducing ATM Business Blueprint

I’m very, very proud to finally present the ATM Business Blueprint: Your Guide To A Profitable ATM Business That Provides A LIfetime Of Passive Income.

I can honestly say that I’ve been through a few different ATM programs and even though I’m biased, I know that I am, I really can say honestly that this is hands down the best, most comprehensive ATM course out there.

Who is the ATM Business Blueprint for?

The ATM business itself is so versatile and so easy to implement within your current situation that this business is perfect if you are any of the following people:

  • Working a 9 to 5 job but eventually want out
  • Always wanted to be involved in real estate but didn’t want the hassles of tenants and toilets
  • Are currently involved in real estate and want another passive income stream (you will begin to consider your ATMs like mini-rental properties…..only you just make start liking them better because you don’t have to deal with any tenants or toilets)
  • You are looking for ways to add income to your retirement account
  • Or maybe you just simple want to add some extra income into your bank account every month

Literally, the ATM Business Blueprint is for anyone that falls into any of the above categories.  One warning though:  this course does involve some work on your part.

You are not going to get into the ATM Business and make a ton of money and not have to do anything.  This course is not a magic little pill to swallow.  What this course is however, is an exact guide to how you can start a profitable ATM business that provides you with a lifetime of passive income.  All you have to do is follow along and take action!

Jobs Suck. Freedom Rules. Diva Money Club Review!

So we all know jobs suck and freedom rules! (Well a lot of us think jobs suck anyway.) I don’t know if you know about the Diva Money Club yet, but I’m going to do a quick review for you.

I mentioned the Diva Money Club a month or so ago and I’ve been involved as a member, or Diva, since they opened their virtual doors. Anyway, the gist of the Diva Money Club is they want to help all Diva’s and Divo’s (yes, men you are allowed to join too) get out of their jobs within 12 months and they do it in 2 ways; real estate and online marketing. Basically they will help you replace a $50,000 a year salary with one or both of those methods within 12 months. (Ok so if you make more than $50k a year…don’t worry, I’m sure they will help you make that happen too!)

Who are the Diva’s? Well a few of them you may be familiar with as they are friends of mine that you’ve seen on this blog before. The other ladies I’ve come to really like and have become friends with as well. Here is the breakdown for you:

Steph Davis – you may know her from FlipThisWholesaler.net She’s the blogging and wholesaling diva.

Shae Bynes – you may know her from GoodFaithInvesting.com She’s the real estate Diva and online diva as well (Plus she’s quickly becoming the private money diva because of all of the private money she’s been getting lately.)

Julie Broad – you may know her from RevNYou.com She’s the real estate and online marketing Diva. She’s from Canada, eh? hehehe I love doing that with Candian folks.

Susan Lassiter-Lyons – you may know her from well a lot of things and most likely theinvestorinsights.com Susan has done it all. She’s the Diva of Diva’s. She’s made loads of money in online marketing, loads of money in commercial real estate, loads of money syndicating real estate deals and she’s raised over $26 million in private money (oh and yes, I said million!)

As you can see there are some real heavy hitters running the show at the Diva Money Club.

Now, what do I think of it? Well if you know me and I’d like to think that you do after spending this much time with me thus far, you know that I’m not about b.s. I don’t care for it, I don’t have time for it and I don’t think you deserve it. So I’ll never hold back what I feel (sometimes that’s good, sometimes uhh not so good 😉 )

Anyway, here is the scoop: I have learned so much from just Susan alone these past couple of months that she alone is worth it. You all know that I’m launching my ATM course, well a lot of questions that I have I ask Susan to help me with because she’s launched tons of courses online. Actually, all of the Diva’s have launched some type of course online. I think Susan may have the most, but Julie has a lot too. Anywho, I don’t just get Susan’s feedback…I get everyones. Plus, I get the feedback of the other members of the DMC.

It’s kind of cool….we’ve all became a tight nit bunch and we’re constantly trying to help one another out; whether it’s critiquing websites or sales pages or helping with wholesaling contracts or investor friendly title companies we’re ALL there to lend a hand.

Are they teaching some stuff that I already know? Of course. But that’s ok, not everyone else knows it. I just don’t spend time on that stuff. I spend time on the forum in the sections that I want to learn more about and I spend time watching the video modules that I want to learn about. Oh yeah I forgot to mention, not only is there a forum but there are video modules for real estate investing and video modules for online marketing. It’s awesome!

Plus, they have extra bonus they’re always adding and they have something called Deep Dive Trainings. They are just extra video trainings that they share. It’s really great stuff!

So bottom line….I give it 2 thumbs up. If you’re looking to eventually leave your job or even if you love your job but you’re looking for some extra income then you have to check out their 3-part free video training at the Diva Money Club.

It’s free training! It can’t hurt to give it a listen, can it? I promise you’ll be blown away. Check out the training videos for the Diva Money Club here. And then I would love for you to come back here and let me know what you think!

A lot happening – networking is king – a job, maybe?



I have a lot happening lately, which is good, of course, but unfortunately I haven’t closed on an apartment building deal yet. Patience I know…and I have found out they may take a wee bit longer then your typical single family deal.

I’m being a tad bit impatient though because I really don’t want to have to get a j-o-b! Know what I mean? I will though if I have to…I mean if it’s necessary to help take care of my family while I do the apartment thing on the side then it’s ok. That’s not the worse position to be in (it may seem like it because I’m not your “normal” type of job person…..but it would only be temporary.)

You might say “well why don’t you wholesale while working on apartments?” And I’d say that’s a fine idea, but realistically to be successful at wholesaling you’re busting your ass and networking and marketing and doing all of the things that I honestly, want to spend my time doing with apartment buildings.

Sometimes I have that conversation with my self and it makes sense and other times it doesn’t. But the big key is, just because you have a deal under contract when wholesaling does NOT mean you’re necessarily going to bring money in (deal could fall through for a number of reasons, etc.) And if that happens, well that doesn’t do the whole family bank account much good 🙂

Trust me, I am not dissing wholesaling in any way shape or form. I made some decent money as a wholesaler but I also remember that to make that decent money I worked my ass off. Not that I’m afraid to work my ass off anymore but I want it to be focused on apartment buildings. The goal: to accumulate enough apartment buildings that throw off enough passive income for me to live off of and for Kathy to live off of and quit her full-time gig (Remember my F R E E D O M post? That’s what it’s all about. ) Passive income does not happen from wholesaling.




So my idea was to get a silly j-o-b that I would just go and do my time (like a prison sentence, right? lol) and have normal set hours so therefore I could manage all of my apartment buildings activities around those set hours. And at least I’ll get a lil bit of money coming in regardless (that is probably until my ass gets fired lol because I spend too much time on real estate hehehe)

If anyone sees a flaw in my thinking please let me know. My debt, folks, is really pissing me off and really determining all of the moves I make. I don’t know if you remember, but I “borrowed” enough money to live off of for 3 months in hopes that we’d get an apartment deal by then……..well I’m tired of paying nearly the minimum on my debt and I’m tired of being broke all of the time. I know a j-o-b is not my end goal, but I think I may be considering it a stepping stone to at least allow me to put a crap-load more money towards paying off my debt while I work towards my passive income goals.

Btw, yes the atm’s are kicking it, even the new one….but still, doesn’t throw off quite enough for me to live off of completely yet.

That’s the bad news, but now for the good news. I’ve been a networking fool lately. At toastmasters, whenever I meet folks and definitely at that tradeshow I went to last week. I think I may have found myself a new private money lender at the tradeshow (we’ll see,) I found an awesome contact who referred me to a property manager and the property manager was fantabulous and she referred me to 2 commercial brokers and told me she’d keep me informed of any properties that she hears coming on the market.

A lady at karate last week saw my WE BUY HOUSES lettering on the back of my car and asked for my card. She called me last night. We spoke. They owe more than their house is worth….I told her I could probably make her an offer and do a shortsale but she’d walk away with nada. She understood and said she’d talk to me in the future when they saved enough money to move out. In the meantime, she tells me about a 12 unit apartment complex near us that she’d like to move back into because the rent was dirt cheap. She tells me that the landlord tried to sell the complex before but the deal fell through. The owner since moved into a retirement community. Of course, I talked to her about that complex and she said she’d get the info for the owner (since her mom still rents from her) and give it to me so I can call her, plus she’d pass my info along to the owner as well. Fingers crossed!

Toastmasters meeting tonite again and I’m bringing Kathy with me aka dragging her kicking and screaming with me! Afterwards, we’re going to drive by 2 properties; a 6 unit and a 12 unit that aren’t far from there. If we have some interest in the neighborhood, which I’m sure we will, we’ll make appointments with the brokers and put in LOI’s.

Friday, we have a 3:30pm appointment at Starbucks with a broker I met at the tradeshow. He knows of a 45 unit property that will be coming on the market sometime soon in our area. And I know, I don’t drink coffee…lol but I like Starbucks’ banana nut bread and their strawberry banana smoothies. Yum.

Saturday, I still have to confirm, but may be seeing a 4 unit property. Monday have an appointment to see a 2 unit property. These are all smaller than I’m really interested, but I don’t think it hurts to practice. These gave from my mailings.

Just got another fax back form from my mailings of a lady that has a 10 unit. We’ve been playing phone tag tho. Sent out 255 pieces, 9 came back undeliverable and we got 5 responses so far; 3 by phone and 2 by fax back form. Just over 2% response rate. Not as good as the last piece we did.

Tomorrow we are going to a Chamber of Commerce mixer to see what we can make happen. It’s $10 for non-members. We still don’t know which chamber to join yet. So we’re just going to the free events and any of the cheaper events for non-members.

And today, I’m going to have Kathy call our next potential private money lenders to set up a lunch appointment with them tomorrow or Friday (those were the folks who were excited to do real estate deals with us but went on vacation.)

Soooo things are definitely moving along, but I don’t foresee an apartment deal by next month, so that’s why I mention the j-o-b thang.

Over and out for now.

P.S. If you haven’t check it out yet, do me a favor and check out my shorter private money pitch and tell me what ya think!

Private Money Pitch – Short

Ok so you remember the longer private money pitch that you saw on video, right? Well this is my shorter private money pitch. And I know the video says I’ll be using it tomorrow at the convention, but I actually recorded that video a few days ago….so I used the pitch all day yesterday at the convention.

I think I even shortened it and went into detail if folks asked questions. At first, I have to admit that it was a little intimidating being in a huge convention center with soooo many people and not knowing how to approach folks or what to say, etc. Because of course, I just wanted the opportunity to try my pitch. After a while I started to get the hang of it and felt more comfortable talking to folks. After a bit I would randomly sit down next to folks just to ask what they do for a living lol

I got 1 guy who told me he thinks he’d be interested and to definitely email him. Another couple seemed interested but they didn’t have any contact info, so I gave them my biz card (probably never hear from them.) About 1 or 2 other folks seemed like they may know folks that may be interested. I got biz cards and I put EVERYONE into an excel spreadsheet today, along with some notes on the back of their biz cards. I’m going to stay in touch with everyone, but definitely with the potential private money folks.

Met a couple of new mortgage brokers and commercial real estate brokers. Had a free lunch, free dinner and an open bar (I don’t drink so I just had 2 sodas.) Also attended a free seminar on financing in today’s market. All in all it was a pretty good day.

So….what are your thoughts on this private money pitch vs. the longer private money pitch?

Networking, Toastmasters, Private Money & Offers



Attending Dave Lindahl’s Private Money/Syndication Bootcamp has really made me realize how super important networking is. It was actually one of the speakers there that really made it sink in. His name is Joel Brough. I first was introduced to Joel at round table discussions that Dave had. Joel was speaking about Property Management. He gave some awesome information about how to network with property management companies to get information from them and to then get information from other folks.

Joel then came up on the last day of the Bootcamp to talk about networking (grant it, he was trying to sell some software that apparently he and Dave created) but the reality was a lot of stuff he was saying made sense. A lot of times we network with folks at perhaps REIA meetings or seminars and bootcamps and we collect tons of business cards but we don’t stay in touch with folks. Sometimes we may not even make contact again after getting their initial business card. Well that was wasted networking efforts. Why put the time in to get the business cards if you aren’t going to take advantage of them?

Anyway, he says not to go to these events with business cards. He says “it’s not about you! It’s about them!” He says to have your “elevator speech” ready to give to folks but don’t hand them a business card, just get there business card. Then come home and put them in your database and stay in constant contact with them, etc. Obviously he went into more detail but you get the gist of it, I’m sure. I really liked Joel.

So now I’m totally excited to network. Dave and others gave us great ideas and examples for our elevator speeches and I’ve been practicing mine since Friday night. I’m ready to use it on everyone. And who knows…perhaps I’ll get a bunch of
private money commitments!




I am going to a my first ever Toastmasters meeting next week. Not because I am afraid to speak in public, cuz I’m not, but I’m sure I can learn some great techniques there, but I’m going because it’s a networking opportunity and this particular chapter meets at a country club hehehe so hopefully there is money there that I can eventually tap in to.

Kathy and I will begin to meet with a few folks that we know for a fact have money and have even spoke to us about either investing with us in regards to the money angle or investing with us in regards to buying properties (this guy we’re going to try to convert to a private money lender tho.) Plus, after I get my speech and presentation really down good….I’m going to meet with a high school friend’s father who I know has money and I know knows lots of folks with money.

As far as offers go, we still just have that one out there and after re-doing the numbers…as long as we use equity investors and not debt investors, I think our initial offer of $900k to $925k is good! (I thought I screwed something up with the numbers and was suppose to offer $750k to 800k!)

Kathy is meeting with a commercial broker in Odessa, Texas today and I also set up a meeting for her to meet a woman at the Economic Development Committee. She’s there for work so I figured I’d put her to work for us too! The Odessa/Midland area is an emerging market that we’re targeting for now.

Finding Private Money Lenders



Private Money Lenders and finding them is generally a big deal for most, if not all investors. We all want to know “how do we get the private money lenders?” Right? Because if we have the private money lenders then we have access to cash and we can make more cash offers and get more deals accepted but more importantly with this private money source at our finger tips our confidence is higher as well!

Well Kathy and I were in Boston, Massachusetts last week for a Private Money Lender seminar. We spent all day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with Dave Lindahl for his Private Money/Syndication Bootcamp. (It was $2997 for those who are wondering.)

Anyway, with the bootcamp we got his private money course in hard format prior to going to the bootcamp. I had read it before getting there and we got new, different materials when we arrived. I’ve been to many real estate seminars before and as always, one of the best parts about the seminars is the networking with like-minded folks. It’s just awesome.




Besides that tho, we were hoping to find some private money lenders at the bootcamp hehehe Didn’t happen yet, but we’re still hopeful that some of the contacts we made may be private money lender worthy lol We learned a great deal at the bootcamp and the big thing there was syndication. Syndicating your deals so you can get paid an acquisition fee from your private money lenders at closing. It was super interesting and confusing as well. There was an SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) attorney there speaking for a day and a half explaining the rules and regulations. What you can and can’t do, etc.

Overall, I really liked the Private Money/Syndication Bootcamp. At the end we had a strategy session with one of Dave’s coaches (of course they try to sell you the coaching program i.e. $8,000 to $10,000) but we don’t have those funds at this time but the coach spent an hour with us (it was only suppose to be 20 minutes) and gave us a great deal of information and action steps to take.

Kathy and I have been talking about the need for a coach/mentor and we’re thinking of going with a gentleman that was referred to us by someone who I met recently from Scott’s Struggling Investor blog. I plan on giving this fella call and chatting with him a few times to see if he’ll be a good fit for us.

I’m super psyched to hit up some private money lenders….or folks that I feel have the potential for being private money lenders for us. We are still practicing our pitches (I practiced mine while laying in bed last nite, while driving home last nite, while in the shower this morning and while driving to my mom’s this afternoon!) I also practiced it on some lady in a New Jersey Turnpike Service Area bathroom lol I did awful by the way….but better to screw up with her then someone I really don’t want to screw up with, right?

I said to Kathy, “I just practiced on that lady.” She said “I know, I heard you.” I said, “I sucked.” Kathy said “I know, but that’s ok.” lol

We got a lot going on right now. 2nd direct mail campaign is out, already getting calls (no fax backs yet tho) and we’ve got a whole lot of action items to tend to and that verbal offer I made?? Remember?? Well the broker told me that he’s trying to get the seller to see reality and thinks he could get him to my price within 3 to 4 weeks. Yikes I say! Not because I’m scared (well maybe a touch) but because we actually saw the property #1 (which it’s in a C area and is a C property with lots of deferred maintenance) but #2 because I messed up when I was figuring out the numbers and the offer should have been way less 🙂 You live and ya learn right?

Luckily, I called ChrisBuysApartments and asked him what to tell the broker so I don’t sound like a complete idiot. Thanks Chris!

Moving right along…a lot to do and oh yeah, Kathy’s away this entire week and I have the kids. And Joe…oh my gosh, has shit to do all this week…baseball then karate then baseball then karate. I swear the only day he doesn’t have something is Monday. Oh and to top it all off he has a religion project due for school lol Definitely my strong suit, right? (For those that know me, know that’s sarcasm!)
