I didn't realize that I could post information about your business and your day's work here until my good friend and business colleague Gorgeous Frazier who is also a DG member told me about it. I was told to just talk about my day so here goes. Well, I slept late today and my day didn't really get started until around 11AM which is when I started focusing my day using a basic Yellow pad, a strategy I learned from one of Dean's videos. Pretty cool. I acually had a solid list of tasks that I starred with 5 stars being the most necessary tasks of the day. I realized when I finished my day how much work I got done. After deciding to leave the teaching field, I really started focusing on my real estate business, but did not start really understanding what it was all about until I got hooked up with Dean's great books, the success academy, and dg.com. Wow. What an incredible and uplifting group of people. I believe that the only thing that gets in the way of your success is the story you tell yourself about why you can't succeed. When you stop telling that story, your potential is unlimited and I am really excited about this business and what it has in store for me. I have been told I am nuts for turning my whole life around to get into this business. All that I do is use that negativity to fuel my desire to succeed. I actually welcome the negative naysayers because it only makes me want this more. I have now spent thousands to educate myself and it is finally starting to pay off.
Anyway, on to my business for the day. After picking up my daughter from Art Camp and going to the grocery store for my wife, I got down to business for the day. As always, I started by checking my emails and finally got to all those buyers list requests that I received last week after posing some ads on Craigslist and Backpage. I want to thank Gorgeous for introducing me to Leadpack.com which is another awesome site for networking with other investors and buyers. Starting to receive some responses on that site as well. It gets more exciting every day. After going through emails, I set up a tentative schedule for next week to go visit some properties and chat with some motivated sellers. I am starting to get more leads because I have started a massive flyer campaign. If anyone has any advice on building lists and attracting leads, please feel free to share. I am always trying to learn from this community of incredible peoople. Working on a couple of deals with Gorgeous so that is what I focused on next. We chatted about some opportunities in other parts of the country including some properties in Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Ohio, Tennesse, and Alabama. We are working on some great opportunites with a lot of potential on those deals so if any of you are buying in those states, let me know because we have some great deals to show you with some pretty solid ARV's. After working on those deals, I networked a bit with some new investors and ran some comps for some other properties. I finished up about 5PM, relaxed for a bit, and then headed out to dinner and to an Italian Feast with my son and daughter. It was a great day and a great night. Been surfing the DG site for the last hour and thought I would write my first journal. Hope this entry is not overkill. If anyone has suggesstions on what I should be posing in this forum, please let me know. I guess that's it for tonight. Just so you all know, I am an active buyer and buying properties with Cash in the states of NY, NJ, and CT. With that strategy, I am the end buyer. I am also interested in wholesaling and today learned I can really do that here and anywhere far and wide. It's time to up the ante here and realize the success I feel that I deserve. I would love to get on as many different buyers lists as possible and am always looking for buyers for my deals as I get new properties under contract all the time. If you want to team up to work on some great deals, you can respond back to me anytime. I look forward to it all and hope to catch up with as many DG'ers as possible. Until next time.
It's not what we get, but who we become and what we contribute that gives true meaning to our lives.
