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!

Atm Deals Contest Internet Businesses Networking Passive Income Property Managers

Thank You for All of the ATM Course Contest Entries

Thank you all so much for all of your entries to the Name My ATM Course contest. I received them all, including the last minute email ones on Friday 😉

I knew I was asking the right crowd to help name the course. You all definitely had your creative juices flowing that’s for sure!

Kathy and I will be going over the ATM course name entries this weekend…so be on the lookout soon to see if you are the winner!

By the way, I’ve been a lil M.I.A. lately because I’ve been busy shooting videos and working on getting the ATM course together for you guys. I promise once this is all finished up that we’ll be back to normal around here!

P.S. On the ATM Placement front, Kathy and I installed a new ATM in a gas station on Thursday and we just received the paperwork on Thursday from our newest private money lender. Both of these things that transpired were by referral. So remember what I told you folks….OPEN YOUR MOUTH and tell people what you do!

Atm Deals Commercial Real Estate Brokers Direct Marketing Campaign Finding Apartment Buildings Internet Businesses Makin' Offers Multi-Units/Apartment Buildings Passive Income

Received counter offer on 34 unit!



I did the numbers on a few properties Kathy and I seen the other day with a broker. I told the broker what I was thinking 1.2 Mil on the 36 unit property, which they are asking 1.8 Mil and he said, “did you mean 1.2 Mil for the other property cause that’s do-able?” I told him that I meant it for the 36 unit, he said it would fly. So I came back later and told him, ok we could do 1 Mil for the 34 unit (that’s the one he mentions above about 1.2 Mil.) This property is listed at 1.3 Mil. He tells me, “if you can do 1.1 Mil I’m sure I can get the deal done.” Now I know I’m negotiating with the broker at this point, but the reality is I say to them “look I don’t want to offend the seller, what do you think of this offer?” So they don’t think I’m a jerk or anything, ya know?

Realistically, I think we could offer 1.1 Mil, but I think I’m more comfortable with the MAO of $1,050,000. So I countered back at $1,015,000 and told him to let me know what the seller says.

Also, had a conference call with a broker team yesterday to go over a property we saw with them. They are asking 1.6 Mil and realistically our MAO is about 1, 375,000 ish….they paid 1.4 Mil for it 2 years ago….they weren’t having it. But the broker team is super duper nice. I wish they would get us some more properties because I’d love to see them make a commission because they are so helpful, the broker I mentioned first is kind of a jerk (for now.)

I’m heading to the courthouse to see if I can somehow fanagle (how do you spell that?) a list of evictions that were awarded to landlords and they will become my new “direct mail list.” I think I really want to find MOTIVATED landlords that own apartment buildings….I know they are out there. So far only the small guys are calling me back…..I want the bigger complexes to call me too!




I have a good feeling tho that most deals will come from brokers and not what the places are listed for, but what you can negotiate fairly.

I went to Toastmasters again last nite and it was a lot of fun. I made the decision to join the next time I go and surprisingly enough Kathy told me she was going to join too! Which is really strange because she is scared crazy of public speaking and told me she doesn’t even want to get up at Tmasters. But I think she had a lot of fun there the last time I took her there so hopefully she’s coming around!

The job hunt is not going so well. Which may be a good thing? I dunno. I mean I need money BAD but I’m really not so fond of a “job” per se. I probably wouldn’t even be thinking of finding a job if I didn’t switch gears into commercial real estate. I could have definitely made a decent living from wholesaling, but switching gears into commercial real estate is like completely starting over. I mean that’s ok because passive income is where my passion is, but it is harder and taking a whole lot longer than I anticipated.

Ohhh I’ve also been working on my Gay Marriage website. I look at my adsense stats and my traffic and I see I’d be making a ton more money if I just got my traffic back up to where it used to be when I use to work on it all of the time. Plus, if I had more traffic, I could also solicit more business from attorneys and other types of companies to advertise on the site. I have a few now, but nothing major yet. So my goal is to work on that some more in the evening and get it back up in the ranks where it use to be and then start sending out emails and calling folks to advertise. I think it could be a realllll money maker if I put just a little bit of effort into it everyday (perhaps that could be my 9 to 5 job after it gets rolling while I concentrate on commercial real estate.

One more thing: we have an appointment tomorrow to meet with another potential ATM site. I made the decision to pull the machine from the newer chinese buffet place. They don’t leave the machine on all of the time after me telling them repeatedly to do so, so I told them we’re pulling it. I wonder how the small business loan environment is? Because the only think that stops us from buying up a bunch of machines and just pounding the pavements and putting them in tons of locations is money. I’d say realistically we’d need about 20 to 25 machines out there working for us to live just fine, while we concentrate on commercial real estate (well I’d be just fine, that’d still below what Kathy makes.)

So, we would need 14 to 19 more machines then…and that equals about $42,000 to $57,000. Hmmmmmm. Something to think about. Obviously, there isn’t much money coming in when you’re out developing business, of course. But after they are all placed there is. Something to think about. I don’t think our LLC has been around long enough tho. I remember last time I got LOC for my business I had to be in business for at least a year. We’ve only been doing this since July of 2009. Something to think about.
