Man do we have a lot going on. We’ve really been Goin’ Flippin’ Crazy! 2 New ATM sites, a new potential private money lender and I don’t know if I mentioned it yet, but I decided to fix up my rental and sell it instead of renting it out again.
Kathy and I will be finished painting it this weekend and then next week we’ll be having carpet installed.
Ok so we installed the ATM in a roller rink last friday. That’s the machine we’re partnering with someone. Remember, it’s his 1st ATM deal and we’re showing him how to do things.
Plus, we ordered the machine for the gas station that my best friend referred us to. So we should be installing that machine before the end of this month.
And remember our private money lender that loaned us the money on our 2 cash only ice cream stores? Where they used their self-directed IRA to do so? Well they just referred me to a friend of theirs who has their own self-directed IRA who may want to get into the ATM business as well from a private money standpoint and perhaps even from an ATM business owner standpoint at some time in the future.
Pretty cool, huh? So as I’m sure you heard me say before in my posts and in some of my videos just make sure you ALWAYS do what you say you’re gonna do, pay the people who lend you money when you agree to and be easy to do business with and people will refer you business!
No matter what business you’re in…it’s really a people business! Even when we’re dealing with ATMs. There’s no tenants or toilets involved with our ATMs…they are just machines, but guess what? Prior to getting the ok to place that machine in the location….we were involved 100% in the people business! We have to interact with the business owner and get them to like us, trust us and want to do business with us.
Even after the ok….we still are in the people business when dealing with the business owners. We talk to them, inquire about business and really just care about them and their business.
And believe it or not, even if you operate websites from your home, you’re still in the people business. Because you want PEOPLE to read your website, right?
That’s the last thought I’d like to leave you with today….make it easy for folks to want to do business with you!
P.S. Woohoooo! Our router is fixed and I’m back online at home!
