Victor from Michigan...MIA!
Most of you probably remember the email I sent out a little while back telling you about a guy named Victor I ran into while shopping in Michigan. And he recognized me, which doesn't happen very often.
Since I didn't have the foresight to give Victor my business card and since he says he reads all my emails, I wanted to give Victor a special prize when he called into my office.
Except he never called! WTH, Victor? Where are you?
I also mentioned something about "synchronicity" of the universe. And that if you run into the right people on your path at the right time, it's meant for you to take an opportunity to move forward.
I was trying to help Victor do that by offering him something special...except he didn't call.
What's interesting is that Victor claimed he was just on my website before meeting me that day a few odd weeks back. Victor is ready for a change in his life...or so I thought, because he never called me to take me up on this special gift I email blasted everyone about.
Could I have sent out the one email that Victor happened to not read? (Now, what are the chances of that? I put his name in the subject line. Kind of hard to miss, you think?)
Think about it, folks: what are the chances? I live in California. I happened to be out shopping in a busy mall in Michigan. (This is something of a pet peeve of mine, shopping in crowded places because my basic motto is "Get it on Amazon.com or Don't Get It at All!")
Since Victor happened to be there at the right time...or maybe it was the other way around...I'm tried giving him an opportunity to further the opportunity in his life if he chooses to take it. This is an opportunity that most of you, my dear students, would kill for.
Except, Victor never called.
The universe opened a door for him...but is Victor too afraid to answer it?
It got me thinking about my students and how many of them have been sitting around thinking about changing certain aspects of their lives, yet they don't for one reason or another. Yet I have a slew of other students who have decided to make the changes and they've become successful as a result of it, mostly by having a Take-No-Prisoners attitude.
This is the point you need to get in order to have the right follow-through.
The start of a New Year is always a good momentum starting point. This is when many of us are gung-ho, clutching to a list of "resolutions" that we swear we'll follow through with this time. Because this year will be different.
This year will be different but only if you want it to be.
By the way, many of you are wondering what I was going to give Victor as a gift.
But he never called...sooooo...so much for seeing Victor at the gift.
And this really bothered me because I really felt that there was a one in a zillion chance that he would have gotten this kind of gift given to him just because of the highly odd set of circumstances that allowed us to meet that maybe he was ready to chance his life.
Well, Victor isn't ready. That doesn't mean you're not ready. In fact, by now you should bemore than ready. This is the year to stop stalling and start kicking your own ass into gear.
When I first got started in investing eons ago, like many other investors I got started flipping fixer-upper single-family homes. Later on I adopted the methodology of buying SFRs to rent them out. Then, of course, the economy greatly shifted, I moved onto the more lucrative apartment building investing, and I long left SFR acquisitions and flipping in the dust.
About 18 months ago I started flipping SFRs again, only because the economy came around, making flipping an incredibly lucrative enterprise. This generally happens when the economy shifts from a recessive flatline to a slow progressive improvement. Flipping is awesome during these times and...we're now officially in "these times" to make fixer-upper flipping work.
And I can show you how to make quick, easy piles of money doing this.
Plus, you can meet my investor partners who are ready and willing to invest in flip deals, apartment buildings, MHPs, commercial-commercial buildings and even business ventures such as software start-ups, restaurants, and other lucrative business enterprises.
If you're interested in acquiring even more cash for your passive income real estate (i.e. apartment building investing), it's best that you inject your own cash into those types of deals which you can now easily raise through SFR flipping.
But this opportunity won't last forever.
Just as the window of opportunity has closed for no-cash-no-credit deals with 100% owner financing, you can now get your own cash and credit together to do your own deals and increase your net worth 1,000 fold in the shortest amount of time possible.
Listen, 2013 can be your year...but not if you plan on sitting on your ass and doing nothing. Every successful person out there -- smart or stupid, with or without resources -- all did onething and one thing only: they created a simple plan and executed the plan. That's it. Nothing more!
No, you don't have to win the lottery or "get lucky" to make things happen for your life. (Victor kind of got lucky but never followed through.) You just have to have a simple set of instructions and play out the instructions laid out. Just like every other successful person has and does.
And for Victor, if you're reading this, you can still call my office. Tell me what happened to you and why you never responded. Maybe, just maybe, I'll cut you a break. (Depends on what type of mood I'm in when you call.)
See you at the top!
