How REI Affects Those Around You

I have noticed that my new path in life as a Real Estate Investor has had some interesting effects on those around me.

First, my family. I have not been well for quite a while now and not one person in my family (outside of my mother and little sister) have ever even bother to call and ask me how I was feeling or volunteer to take care of the kids for me or even lend me a single cent for a bill or rent. Now I have family I have not spoken to in years offering to do things for me, oh... and by the way, do you have a house I can rent, or why don't you let me buy that house from you and I pay you a "lil something" for it. MAN!!... have they lost their minds.

Secondly, I am noticing I now have friends I never knew I had. Everyone of these n friends looking for an investment tip or an "in" on a good deal or "partnering" with me, but of course their partnering does not meet any standard for which I have ever known. I find the property, I find the funds, I buy the property and they collect the rent. Hmmmmmm....makes you scratch your head doesn't it.

Next, I have noticed that I have become the most popular mom in the neighborhood because all of the other parents think I can "fix their foreclosure". Where I live the foreclosure rate has exceeded 66.3% as opposed to the national average of 9.9%.

Lastly, I have discovered that I now have more "haters" following my actions and moves than I have ever had in my entire life. I have people that monitor me like I was on the Most Wanted list. All to watch and wait for me to make a slip up and fall dead on my face.

All this and it just amazes me because 4 months ago no one knew I existed. I guess my new venture into Real Estate Investing is affecting EVERYONE. For better or worse.

I am a problem solver. Just give me all those problems of having to much money.....

I am looking foward to trading up problems the way some people trade up on cars.

Anita, you were able to get past the naysayers and start your new career these new "friends" are just a different type of naysayer. you will surpass them also.

Thank you for you.
