Dream Big and Live Life Well

Now is the time to be bolder, to dare to achieve, to begin something worth doing.
Begin now to do something that has long been a dream, something that makes you approach each new day as a journey to accomplish what you want and desire.
Your days are numbered, you won't live forever so now is the time to grab hold of that dream and shake it for all it's worth. Time is a fleeting commodity that can never be retrieved again so do it now, not tomorrow or the next day - now.
Don't just dream.
Dig for it.
Put your desires into motion not just thought.
Act.
Be bold and be courageous.
Will it be easy? Not likely. Will it be worth the work, the risk, the frustration? Absolutely!

$23,000 Assignment fee split 3 ways

This is insane. A wholesaler from out of state (Utah) calls my buddy Bob and asked if he wants a junk house. Bob lives 50 miles from where the house is located. Were here in Central California. Bob calls me bcuz the house is located in my city. I email my buyer the address and the price and he wants it. Brad the wholesaler from Utah was being really difficult, demanding a $5,000 non refundable earnest deposit.

I told him that was ridiculous cuz he had the house on contract for 25K and it looked like it shud be bulldozed. Finally we all agreed to a 2K earnest deposit and the buyer was OK with it. Buyer got it for $48,000 and he's a realtor and I don't know what he flipped it for.

Another Wholesale deal done!

Less than a month ago I had a 3 property package deal and I can't believe we just sold 2 of the properties for the profit that we was looking to make for all 3 and still have the last one for sale! This is crazy!

Dream Big - Believe it

I sit here tonight in a hotel room in Minneapolis. No, I'm not on a vacation. I find myself tonight in realization of a dream. A dream that started in July 2009. I was up late watching an infomercial when that cute little Italian dude told me I could make a fortune investing in real estate. There was something undeniably real about him. I bought the books; I joined the Success Academy. I so remember the guy from the Success Academy using such lines as: "Maybe one day you will be in the infomercial." "Maybe one day, you will be the one who goes around the country teaching others." Ya right. I didn't care much, at that time, for the thought of being in an infomercial. I mean, how embarressing would that be if someone I knew saw me?

Weekly Wisdom #334 - What You Think Is What You Are.

As many of you know, Dean's Facebook account was hacked last week and was sending out some pretty terrible posts! For that reason, Dean decided to send out his Weekly Wisdom a few days early to apologize to his DG family Eye-wink

His message this week is pretty powerful... He was so upset this past weekend that Dean ended up telling himself such bad stories that he couldn't even fall asleep some nights. And then he realized... He was filling his subconscious with negative stories! He wasn't observing his thoughts like he has preached for years!
