I bought the books: Achievement #1
Registering with Deans success academy on Wed March 17th: short term goal
ok now a lil about me because this is the first entry to my blog / success journal
My name is Stephen Bowman, I'm 29 years old and I'm ready for a change... I just received my book about a week ago and I'm trying to get the book read... I'm pretty restless so me finishing yet alone picking up a book is a huge accomplishment in its self.. Can't say that I'm getting it read fast but I'm still reading it and that's all that counts... I pick it up like 2 or 3 times a day and read for about an hr each time... I even thing that my semi-skeptical g/f is impressed that I have read that much so far... kudo's to me... lol I will be joining Deans success academy on Wed.. psyched about that... To give a little insight on that, I'm paying the installment plan.. lol but still a start... I'm currently unemployed and am on unemployment. My g/f just recently got a job and is putting in as much time as possible... last week she had like 24 hrs overtime... so at this point I'm a stay at home dad caring for 4 beautiful children, two hers two mine... which is a full time job in its self... I have always (at least a long time) wanted to get into real estate. I even took a class at the Realtor Association to become a REA but knew that I didn't really want to be a REA, but a REI. My credit is shat to say the least and when I lay in bed there that night, feeling sorry for my self and my kids Dean says here you go Stephen... like buying into MS stock I was ready... This is my true chance to become what I want to be... Now I'm sorry that this is all so long for all that read it, but its my personality to get it all out here and since this is my journal everyone i guess should know who I am, not just my name... back to being who I want to be; I want to be a Father!!! REI is just the true honest to god tool that it takes to become that!! but not only can it give me that, i know that i will enjoy it once the ball starts rolling for me!! and once I have mastered my art (to an extent, cause i know there is always more to learn) I am gonna rocket into outer space!!! I have always told myself that I am destined for more!! thats the main reason I don't keep jobs so well... although it hurt me in the long run... but with this program I can find myself a Full (part time) job until i can retire from that job... I have huge goals, and yes people i'm going to list them right here. That way I can come back and read this on a regular basis because its me putting it in writing!!!
Short term goals: finish the books asap, register with DGSA on wed, FOLLOW THE SYSTEM, buy a home for my family, and close a min. of 8 deals in the next year.. I don't know if I shooting to high cause to me that seems reasonable..
Long term goals: when the kids graduate senor high Aprox 2020 - 2026 I would like to have the equity and hard cash to A: send my kids to any college they want to (hopefully I can get them involved in REI before they grad. hehehe) B: be able to travel where ever when ever and buy property while I am there...
I would also like to be making a min. of 500000k net a year. with a min of 2 million in equity.
well that's what I could come up with at this point. I'm sure that i will add more as I go along but feel these are good ones to start off with... Well I think that I am going to do some reading while I can yet today the three girls are at school for another 2 hrs and it sounds like lil man is playing good in his room (for now lol) gotta get it in when I can... I'll talk to you all later
this is Stephen Signing off, Over lol
take care all
Its not about hiding from the storm, its about learning to dance in the rain!!
