I've finally decided that I'm DONE with larger events and seminars for good.  I'm ONLY interested in doing very small hands on workshops from this point further.  Why is this?

I'm contemplating something brand new in my life, especially in light of all the employee disasters I've had to suffer through over the past couple of weeks.  Doing larger seminars...OUT!  Doing another real estate mentorship group...OUT!

Right now I'm trying to decide if it's worthwhile for me to continue teaching people at all...or not.  It seems that very few listen to me.  Many attend my events, workshops and mentorship groups but few follow through.  Yes, those who DO follow through become massively successful because what I teach is real, relatively easy to understand and implement, and is life-changing for those who let it.  Some of my students are making millions a year now.  But what bothers me are those who are still sitting on their asses doing nothing.  Why is that?  Why are they sitting there...doing nothing??  I don't get it and I've started to take some of this personally.  Actually, I'm now taking it as a direct personal insult, truth be told.

[PFFFUUUMMPPP!]

Did you hear that?  That's the part where I just dropped the mic at my recent Vegas Event.  (I didn't literally drop the mic.  That's just a metaphor for...I'm done.  But you get the point.)

In the meantime, I have something pretty unique and outrageous that came across my desk only a short time ago.  It seems that my old money broker -- Ron Espinoza -- in light of his successful distribution business, has decided to give up his DIRECT CONTACT to one of the main companies he deals with to get cash for both residential and apartment building deals...INCLUDING getting cash for rehabbing.

Yes, you can now have DIRECT ACCESS to this PRIVATE MONEY SOURCE to get you cash for your residential and apartment building deals PLUS rehab money (if needed).

CLICK HERE to find out how to get this direct source!  (This is LIMITED to only 12 people.  Take it or leave it!)

See you at the top!

Why I Fired My Assistant!

Just last week I fired my assistant Holly.

And yesterday...I fired just about everybody else on my staff.

Why?  What the hell happened?

Well, it turns out that my assistant Holly was padding her payroll with extra hours, overtime, and -- perhaps worst and most financially damaging of all -- bonuses/commissions that she wasn't due at TWICE the rate we agreed upon.

It turns out that several other employees were in on the scam.  So, they all lost their jobs yesterday in the blink of an eye...standing before me completely stunned and slack-jawed as I told everybody to get the f*** out of my office.

Forever.

Yesterday, by far, was the WORST DAY this entire year...and maybe the worst day in several years, actually.  Never did I consider for a moment that I'd wake up and go into the office, firing everyone in sight in less than an hour after they all showed up.

So...what happened?  And why was my assistant fired last week...a full week before everyone else was terminated?

Well...that part is a lot more complicated.  Holly was supposed to attend the 5-Day Duo Bootcamps with me from September 13th through 17th in Vegas.  Without going into detail, she had a major personal issue which disallowed her from attending...AT THE LAST MINUTE, putting me in the awkward and precarious situation in rounding up staff to assist me with this event.

The two events turned out absolutely fantastic...and it seemed as if everything was back on track.

Until Holly left the office early on the last day of the event without my knowledge or permission.  I relied on her and my in-office staff to assist me with administrative duties while in Vegas.  So...when she left at 3 pm and never returned, I assumed she quit.  She told me she was taking a lunch break...for almost 2 hours!  And just never came back to the office.

She then told me she had something personal to attend to the next day, telling me that she wouldn't be there in the morning.  I told her not to bother coming in at all all anymore.

I asked the rest of my staff how often Holly would abuse her role as office manager by leaving early, coming in late, etc.  They all told me that she did that all the time.  I scolded them all for not telling me the truth.

Now I know why they didn't tell me about all the unscrupulous activity with Holly.  You see, they were ALL on the scam of being on payroll to take huge amounts of undue commissions and bonuses on sales they didn't even make.  So, since they were all in on it, they knew it wouldn't be beneficial for them to rat out the very person who was running the payroll for all of them: Holly.

This payroll sham has been taking place since early June.  And it cost me over $60,000 in financial damages.

Live and learn.

What did I learn exactly?

1)  Trust nobody.  Ever!  Just when I least expect it, I get stabbed in the back when I do extend trust to anyone.

2)  Always write and sign my own checks.  And always run my own payroll.

3)  People mostly suck.  But there are some rare gems out there.  And I have since quickly figure out who is on my side (and who isn't) when the sh** hit the fan.

So...what happens from here?

I dry my tears and I move forward.  I have to re-calibrate everything almost from scratch when it comes to operations and admin...but that's okay.  I've done it twice already in the past 18 months.  So...the third time is a charm, right?  The benefit of having been in business for over 20 years is that it allows me to roll with the punches no matter how grim things seem to be.

In the meantime, since I did have such a kick-ass event, I want to offer you a special bonus because I (unlike others) am a GIVER and I give all that I can to create value for you, my dear loyal student.

CLICK HERE and I'll explain to you exactly what I mean.

Sunday, September 01 2019

The other day I had to pick up a registered letter that I had to sign for.  It was intriguing because it said the letter was from "The Netherlands" so I had to know exactly what required my signature since I didn't recall ordering anything from such a place.

I had to go to this hole-in-the-wall post office way off the beaten path and ring a bell...then wait on this lonely barren shipping dock.  The whole process of getting ones mail requiring signature has always been kind of odd, as this wouldn't be the first time I'd been to this place.

A man came out and demanded my driver's license with one word:  "License!"

"You need my license?" I asked.

"Yes.  License!"

I thought the way he was speaking to me was weird in kind of a "warlock who lives in a cave" fashion with one word demands.  No complete sentences.  Not even a fraction of a sentence.  Just one word here and there, in kind of a pissed off tone.

I gave him my license, half believing I'd never see my driver's license or him ever again.  But he came back with a letter and some card I had to fill out.  He continued with his demands.  "Print.  Sign."  And he'd aggressively point to the areas where I was supposed to print and sign.

This is when I realized that he had a very heavy accent of some kind, seemingly from some overlooked corner of the European continent.  But the bottom line, for me, was this:  The dude BARELY speaks English.  Barely.  And I doubted he could even order a hamburger from McDonald's...that's how poor his English is.  I've met people who were vacationing from Europe who could communicate better with a paper dictionary of English words than I was able to communicate with this grubby guy at the USPS.

This instantly made me angry, all within a fraction of a second.  Here we are -- a nation of people buying into the fear that the "foreigners" are taking American jobs -- and I'm standing at a government-founded organization where I'm battling to communicate with a USPS employee who can't freaking speak English (not to mention completely lacking in interpersonal communication skills).  Why couldn't the USPS hire an English-speaking AMERICAN for this job?  And why is it that every time I go to just about ANY branch of the USPS, I find myself struggling to communicate with many of the people who work there, even those who work at the counter?

Why is this?  What the hell is going on here??

But then, of course, this is when I had to gently remind myself that this is just how it is when you live in a hypocritical society.  The government expects one thing of its own citizens, including small business owners, but will do something completely different to benefit themselves.  Meanwhile, the Average Joe Blow will get mad at the small business owner for not hiring American-born people to work for them while completely ignoring the massive workforce of foreigners who work for the U.S. Government in one department or another.  After all, most people don't realize but the U.S. Government and all of their different departments are responsible for roughly HALF of the ENTIRE WORKFORCE in the United States.  So...focusing on the small business guy who has to higher foreigners to pick strawberries because Americans won't do it...and then getting angry at him...is kind of a futile use of getting angry.

But when things like this happen, I always have to REMIND MYSELF that I am responsible for MY OWN FINANCIAL DESTINY.  I can't be worried about who is working for who and why companies aren't hiring more Americans vs. foreigners.  In fact, when it comes right down to it, I recommend that people work for themselves.

And this comes just in time for the holiday tomorrow and how you should honor that day for WORKING FOR YOURSELF and NOT working for somebody else.

So, there's something I want you to check out RIGHT NOW.  CLICK HERE to find out what it is.
