And good fortune to all. My name is Shawn (aka investorb). This is a journal of my hummble if not obscure beginings. I have three wonderful children and a lovely wife. usually. I am looking over my shoulder and no she did not see that, okay good. Back to business. Like I said I truly have a wonderful family, which I get to enjoy being around. I am a union carpenter that has made a modest living thus far. Not so long ago, late late one night my wife and I were having a discussion about the status of our lives. Upon reflection I presented to her that my personal affairs (outside of fam.) were stagnent. That I felt the urge to move forward in a more fullfilling direction wherever that would be? So fast forward several months - I was working at nights renovating a major department store. The foreman running the job continually spoke of all kinds of oppurtunities. My response was "yeah where?". I liked what he said I just didn't think that I would prosper from it. Then he gave me the infamous Rich Dad Poor Dad manufesto BOOM it hit me like a ton of cash. Changed my pattern of thinking forever and realigned virtuous path to success. With this newly empowered mindset I happened upon Deano's infomercial. Thought what the H$LL, it's only a book and besides if not anything it will at least raise your financial IQ. Bought it, read it, loved it and am just blown away with all the strategies along with the marketing techniques contained within (PFRERN).
So any way this is where I currently stand.
Since reading Dean's Book 3 weeks ago

And mulled around researched different strategies in my head...
So its now or never.
If I didn't bore everyone to sleep yet, I will post again soon hopefully with exciting days of life.
Good life to all and may living be with you.
