Direct Marketing Campaign Goals and Planning Kids Multi-Units/Apartment Buildings Passive Income Random Ramblings

Back to the grind



I hope everyone had an awesome holiday and I hope you will have a safe and exciting New Years Eve. Kathy and I will be hanging out with friends for dinner if the weather cooperates for New Years Eve, otherwise we will be attending our neighbors party (Becky and Jeff, our rent-a-husband!)

Anyway, I’ve been sooooo out of it since we got back from Cali. Total slacker, but I want/need/and will stop it. I’ve been doing lil stuff here and there, but enough of that…BIG ACTION is coming up, because BIG ACTION always gets us BIG RESULTS!

Kathy and I seriously want our first multi-unit (4 unit or more) by March 1st, 2010. Tomorrow we are starting our direct marketing campaign. I put all of our 5 letter campaigns into my computer today, plus 2 speciality letters. I also got a list of all 4 unit and more owners in our county. I think we’ll start there for now. Then expand out when we need to. I’m psyched about this….and scared at the same time. I was telling Kathy about it this evening, but then again I’ve been scared about mobile homes before and I did them and I’ve been scared about getting into single family homes and I did them and I’ve been scared about rehabbing and I’ve did them and I’ve been scared about subject 2’s and I’ve did them and I’ve been scared about wholesaling and I’ve did them…..so I guess it’s ok to be scared as long as I keep doing shit! Ya know?




I’m telling you, for any of you that have never played Robert Kiyosaki’s Cashflow game, I really recommend it. I mean I’ve had an interest in multi’s and mobile home parks before but never like I did after playing that game earlier this month. I mean it’s like the brightest light bulb ever went on that night. It was the “don’t worry about getting out of debt first, just start to accumulate passive income and assets and get out of debt while doing so” light bulb just smacked me straight up in the face. And I’m glad it did….because you know what? It may have taken me a hell of a long time to start doing what Kathy and I are getting geared up to do.

Now that’s on the real estate front…on the ATM front, well I have to follow up with 3 pizza shops, 2 hotels and I did follow up with the other strip club tonite. When I called the guy was so nice and said he was just thinking about us yesterday and we talked about our holidays and he said he couldn’t talk too much now because he was on the road and he said he wants to call us before the end of the week to talk about things because his current ATM contract is up then too. We got our fingers crossed but I’m hoping he signs up with us. That will be 2 strip clubs! And that right there folks, is an ATM goldmine. We offered the guy a pretty damn good profit sharing thang if he signed up with us. Our only obstacle was what if he takes our plan and asks his current guy to match it? Soooo that’s why in my follow up thank you letter to him I didn’t really talk about that too much 🙂 I talked about our charming personalities and how I’m sure we’re wayyyy cuter (mostly Kathy lol) to look at than the guy he’s currently doing business with. Actually, I think I’d be all of my money on the fact that he’d prefer to look at Kathy then his current guy. So, we shall wait and see what happens in a couple of days.

Well I’m off to bed. This is the first night in a longggg time where Kathy and I are actually home alone. Joe is with his Dad and Brandon is spending the night at a friends house. It’s actually really nice. And quiet! (I know some of you make think that sounds mean, but ya know what? I’ve never had kids, never wanted kids, never lived with kids and as you know, when you suddenly have kids in your life your whole entire world CHANGES. Trust me, it’s still a process to get use to for ALL of us, I’m sure. So I don’t mean to come off mean in regards to the kids, it’s just that I was use to living by myself for a long time and just having girlfriends who may have had kids, but didn’t live with me. Whole new ball game when they live with you.)

Meeting with another strip club!



Woohooo! Tonight we’re meeting with another strip club to hopefully put our atm in there. We met with the guy a few months ago but he said he has a contract until the end of the year with someone and to call him towards the end of December. I need our machine placed NOW so I called him tonight. He agreed to meet with us tonight so I said “Honey, we’re going to meet with Will at the strip club so ummmmm” and she chimed in “Go put on a slutty outfit?” I said, “Exactly!” 🙂



My babydoll is so supportive of our atm business don’t ya think? I called another strip club but the dude was rude..that’s why I prefer to do business in person. Kinda harder to be rude to folks in person vs. the phone, plus if he would see my babydoll he definitely wouldn’t be rude. Some people think we’re nuts I just call it using smart business tactics.

Wish us luck! I’d really love to get this machine placed by Christmas.

P.S. It’s very tough to get into a strip club because 99.999999% of them already have atm’s. Like the one tonite, they already have one. But my goal is to hit up every strip club within the tri-state region and see if we can convince them to switch to us 🙂

Lil bummed today

So I’m a lil bit bummed today. Not feeling too great in the first place…not sick…just crampy. But I’m not letting it stop my taking action. For some reason, now in my life I’m very in tune with the fact that THOUGHTS lead to FEELINGS which lead to ACTION.

Anyway, the major reason I’m bummed is Kathy got offered a job today. That’s not a bad thing…that’s a wonderful thing because I know it makes her feel happy and safe and comfortable, etc. But this job requires a lot of traveling. It’s the same type of work she did before, she’s a Senior Clinical Research Analyst for Pharmaceutical companies, but at this company more traveling is required. I don’t think it’s gonna be constant traveling but I’ll hardly see her the entire month of December and January.

And on top of that, I have to play full-time mommy when the kids are here and she’s traveling (grant it that’s every day for Brandon cuz he only lives with us, but every other week for Joe.) Getting Joe up for school, getting him breakfast, checking homework, studying, making dinner and everything else in the world that mom’s and women do (and a lot of dads) that we sometimes don’t really pay that much attention to. Btw, I never had any desire to have kids, personally. However, I always seemed to date women with children…..Kathy’s the first one I’ve actually lived with. So the whole kid thing is 100% NEW to me and my world. There’s no doubt that I’m still adjusting to them and them to me (after 1.5 yrs. of living together) but still it’s a lot different when Kathy is here and I’m just a step-parent vs. her not being here and I’m the sole parent figure. Ya know? Anyway…..

I think I’ll take a lot of positives from it tho….it’ll FORCE me to get up early every day like I wanted too (you hear that Steph…I will probably be able to accomplish that aspect of my list lol) and then after I get up, work out and take Joe to school I can start on real estate at 8am non-stop until about 2:30pm. I can’t do any nite time appointments for Rainbow when Joe is here but I figure I can work on my websites. So I’m gonna try not to be so bummed out by it.

Ok off to fill our strip club atm. 🙂
