Ouch That Hurts!!

Wow, sorry guys and gals! I just reviewed the last couple of posting I have done on this blog and I see that I have fallen into the same trap everyone else is in. As Eor would say "'ll never work". That is where we are in the economy but we do not have to participate. In fact I am standing up right now and going to my window and shouting - "I'll mad as hell and I am not going to take it any more."

OK, so the I borrowed the line for the movie "Network" but it still applies. We are looking down and thinking how can we reach the stars. Well the first way is to look up. I do not want you to think that I am down on Real Estate - I'm not. Real Estate is the ultimate wealth building business in the world. It is simple but not easy. So life will throw all kinds of curve balls at you and you just have to hang in there. You will get your pitch to hit. (Sorry baseball season is coming).

So don't let the news of the day bring you down. In fact throw the paper away and turn off the TV (well maybe leave it on for Life and Lost) and work on your action plan. Send out letters to motivated sellers; return seller calls; talk to buyers. Talk to positive people and remember the incredible buying opportunity we have today. People will be talking about this time for decades to come and you will be able to say... "I bought several income properties for my retirement in Maui" (or any other exotic place you choose). Because that is what we are doing ;-)

See Ya,

Your blog posting made me think of one of my favorite quotes - Einstein said: "Try not to be a man of success but a man of value". Two Average Joes offers value and solutions to people who are losing their options and their hope. Real Estate is the largest purchase people make and the largest purchase some will lose. Offering piece of mind to those who need it most in a time like now is priceless. So keep standing from that window and shouting: "I'll mad as hell and I am not going to take it any more." Because in today’s world you have real value and nothing can bring that down!
