It never ceases to amaze me on how utterly stupid some people really are.
And this BONEHEAD really screwed himself over by being...I don't know: A BONEHEAD!
Those of you who have been long-time students of mine -- some of you dating back to 2001, believe it or not -- know that I've offered LOTS of really profitable opportunities that have come to fruition for quite a few of you.
So, when the Monica Main "newbies" enter into the realm of things, they're not quite hip to how powerful some of these opportunities can be -- even (and in many cases) LIFE CHANGING for them. Instead, they'd rather BLOW IT by being...stupid.
Over just the last few years alone I've been a part of hundreds of deals with my students including bird-dog deals, partnerships, a liaison between my students and my investor partners, etc. Most of my students are VERY respectful to me when approaching me about a deal, partnership, or with a bird-dog offering.
But not the BONEHEAD.
So, recently, this BONEHEAD purchased my Bird-Dog Bonanza with the Opportunity to work with us on bird-dog deals. He emailed me a rude and disrespectful demanding email saying that he was a "highly" experienced bird dog and that he needed to know my criteria on deals. I politely explained to him that these criteria details are located in the course materials and then I included that I was actually offended that he didn't have the respect to at least go through all of the course materials before contacting me about a deal... which, I should mention, he didn't even present in the first place.
This is when the BONEHEAD decided to become unglued by telling me that I was being "evasive" by not painstakingly spelling out the criteria to him because -- oh, I forgot to mention this part -- he didn't want to go look at the Bird-Dog Opportunity card that was provided to him. Even after I told him EXACTLY where to find the listing of the deal criteria of properties we are looking for!
To be clear, anybody who wants to be a bird-dog for myself or my partners MUST be willing and able to READ THE LIST OF DEAL CRITERIA. That's kind of...I know know...the FIRST thing my bird-dogs need to do before submitting a deal.
Yet this BONEHEAD not only refused to look at the deal criteria list but then he THREATENED me if I didn't give him this list.
Now, as my legal disclosures ALWAYS state, I'm not obligated to do anything with anybody. Nor should I be. But remember, of course, this BONEHEAD never even got to the criteria to begin with. He was threatening me about not giving him the list of deal criteria which, of course, I HAD given him the list but he didn't want to go look at it.
So, I had to tell him the reality of the situation which goes like this: I've been in this business of real estate investing for OVER 20 years. I NEVER (nor should I) work with people who are RUDE, disrespectful, demanding, and ESPECIALLY THREATENING in ANY way, shape or form.
Apparently this BONEHEAD never heard the saying, "You attract more flies with honey than vinegar."
Or however the saying goes.
So I told him that despite his "high level of experience" that he professed to have, without any deals submitted, we cannot and will not work with him. I know...that's pretty obvious, isn't it? How can we invest in ANY deal (bird-dog or partnership) if it was never submitted in the first place?!
And then here's the REAL kicker! (Oh yes, it gets even better, folks!)
He said that as time went on that I wasn't spelling out the list to him, his fees were going up!
I had to laugh out loud when I read that. This BONEHEAD actually thinks he's the only one in the world who knows how to find deals, acting as if he's in HIGH DEMAND with other investors, and that everybody is beating a path to his door for his magical golden deals to where he can immediately raise his bird-dog fees on me for... wait for it -- deals that he has yet to produce in the first place because...wait for it again -- he refuses to read our list of deal criteria!
And then he THREATENED me for not...looking at the deals he never submitted? Not giving him the deal criteria list, even though I told him exactly where to find it? I have NO IDEA!
Sometimes you can't quite figure out how stupid people think. Or how they get out of bed in the morning each day to begin with!
I think this dude fully and squarely falls into the loony category and instead of harassing people by way of email, he might find more personal success if he sought out a shrink instead. Clearly he needs one.
Listen, I don't know about you but just think about this one little thing for one second:
Pretend that you're a multi-millionaire and you're looking to do real estate deals. You don't care where they are but they have to have a strong cash flow.
And pretend that you have some snotty pompous asshole who claims that he's the Top Bird-Dog in the country (even though he's given you NO credentials to support that) and then threatens you that if you don't give him all of your deal criteria (that you've already provided to him, nonetheless, but he refuses to go and look at the list), he's going to write a letter to the Attorney General.
Oh, and that his bird-dog finder's fees are going up and up and up the longer it takes you to respond to his threatening demands by way of email.
Now, just tell me, dear student...how would YOU react to that? Remember, you're the multi-millionaire who is merely looking for deals for both yourself AND your investor partners. You're just looking to find profitable deals and you want to pay good people for bringing you these deals. That's all you want really.
Do you WANT to deal with somebody who is an asshole? Or somebody who threatens you? Yes or no?
I'm guessing PROBABLY NOT.
I've been in business a long time and I can tell you that I have incredibly long-term business relationships with both students AND my investors based on ONE THING, and ONE THING ONLY: They're likable to do business with. Period.
And like ALL of the investors who I've worked with, NONE of us do business with people who suck. NONE of us!
And what type of people suck?
Like BONEHEAD, people who suck are those who refuse to read the instructions provided, those who are mean, rude, and disrespectful and particularly those who threaten us. THOSE are the people who suck and THOSE are the people we DO NOT do business with.
And like with ANY business, we reserve the right to refuse working with someone based on what I described above.
So, was the result of all of this with BONEHEAD?
I had to tell BONEHEAD that he doesn't have the qualities we are looking for as a bird-dog. And that he can ship back his Bird-Dog Bonanza System with the Opportunity Card for a full refund. End of story.
He screwed himself out of an opportunity because he's a jack-ass.
And I had to forward all of this to my attorney for further review and possible legal action against this BONEHEAD in the event that he decides to file libelous letters with any government agency; it'll ultimately at that time turn into a lawsuit against this jerk-off.
And there you have it.
All because we have a guy who thinks he's hot shit, the ONLY game in town when it comes to bird-dogging, and he comes at investors with threats, thinking that he's going to get somewhere. It's like poking a stick at a bulldog. What does anybody think they'll accomplish doing that? Especially doing that to people with money? Crazy!
Now, for those of you who really want to do this with me and my investors -- the whole bird-dogging thing, that is -- then you should CLICK HERE for something new that I have for you.
In the meantime, stay cool. And by cool, I don't mean physically cool (even though that helps in this hot summer), but to BE COOL. Be cool to work with. And if you're cool to work with then us investors will want to do business with you.
See you at the top!
