Ok guys and gals it’s time! Time for you to buckle down and grab YOUR financial freedom. It’s right there just waiting for you…..you can do it and you can do it a whole lot sooner than you thought possible!
Today Shae launched her: Financial Freedom GPS and I have to tell you it is awesome! If you know me well at all or even semi well you know that I don’t refer crap. If I refer it and I’m willing to put my name on the line for it then I truly believe in the product. Actually, I even wrote a testimonial for Shae as Kathy and I have been working the plan since October 1st (yes, the beginning of this month.)
This is a must have guide if you want to leave your job (aka the rat race) or maybe you don’t want to leave your job but you want to have options in life….a whole lot more options in life than most folks have. Or maybe you just want a great new step-by-step way to get out of debt and start putting more $$$$ into your pocket! Folks this ebook really is worth the small investment…I can’t tell you enough.
I promise if you follow the simple steps that you (and even your spouse if you have one) can be well on your way to YOUR Financial Freedom.

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?
Well you read a few days ago that we have our direct mail campaign letters printed out on our quest for an apartment building, right?
Now we’re trying to find someone to address the envelopes, stuff the envelopes and stamp ’em.
After listening to some of Dave Lindahl’s cd’s about apartment investing I decide that I want to do what he does. He has someone in an old folks home do his direct mail campaign. I thought that was an awesome idea.
So I go to 2 retirement communities near me. The first one took my information and said “Volunteer Services” would call me back.
The 2nd one, which is literally 1 minute from my house gave me the number of “Resident Services.” I called her and left a message but she’s never gotten back to me yet. I’ll keep following up with both.
I didn’t think it would be so difficult to find someone to do this for us, especially since we’re willing to pay them. We’re gonna pay .10 per envelope (now Dave said he pays .11 per envelope but I just figured .10 makes the math easier lol)
My requirements are quite simple too:
1) Someone with nice handwriting
2) And I’d prefer someone that perhaps doesn’t get many visitors or perhaps none…so that way they’d at least be visited by myself and/or Kathy at least twice a month? Know what I mean??
I’m gonna put an add on craigslist now and still keep following up with the retirement communities.
P.S. I got the book “Million Dollar Habits By Brian Tracy” that Steph over at Flip This Wholesaler is reading for the book of the month. I picked it up at the library yesterday and have been reading it since.
For the past 10 years plus I’ve been reading, studying and devouring awesome books, courses, etc. that had to deal with real estate, money, business and self-help. There are a handful of books that I HIGHLY recommend and I figured I’d include them here. If you have some that you think should be added, please make a comment with your suggestion and why you think it’s such an awesome book.
Also, if you’re read any of the ones that are on my list, by all means make a comment about why you liked (or didn’t like the book.) (Note: The links below are all affiliate links. So, if you think a book or 2 sounds interesting and you want to go ahead and buy it, please use the affiliate link if you feel that I helped you with your decision to purchase the book. It really helps to pay for this blog! Thanks!)
Btw, I don’t know if you know this but stress is a big factor in heartburn. If you have any type of heartburn symptoms and if you’re anything like me and you get stressed out by your real estate deals “will I find a wholesale buyer quick enough” “will my rehab be done in time” “will my simultaneous close go smoothly” etc. etc. then this is a MUST HAVE E-BOOK. No questions asked. It will save you from much pain. If you’d like any more details of my experience with the book and it’s entire program then please feel free to contact me here.
Well I have many more books that I’ll think about putting on here but this is a good start for now. If you guys and girls can think of anymore, let us hear about ’em!
