It's an interesting irony...at least I think it is.
When my daughter was born in 2008, I decided that I wanted to finish getting my BS degree in business. This was because I remembered a conversation...in fact many such conversations (arguments actually)...with my mom decades ago about why I didn't want to go to college.
And the argument went something like this:
Mom: "You should go to college. It would be a great experience for you."
Teenage Me: "Why? You didn't go to college. You didn't even finish high school."
And that was the end of that.
So, there I was in the summer of 2008, holding a brand new baby, and thinking to myself... I really don't want to have this same argument with my daughter when she gets older.
Within 6 months, I was back in college, finished by BS degree a year or so later, and then went on to complete an MFA degree in writing.
It was after I graduated with my second degree that it fully sunk in. What a bunch of bullsh*t it is to have a college degree.
Even worse -- at least for me -- was that I felt my dream of becoming a commercial fiction author was squashed. (At least that's what I believed at that time when I left the university.) All the professors there seemed to beat out any dream that any moldable mind had about ever becoming successful in the realm of writing, mainly in commercial fiction. Instead of being the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed wannabe writer with dreams of grandeur and success... I felt deflated, rejected, and ground down with my dream whipped out of me. As I look back now, I realize that most were burn-outs, dreamers, and not all that commercially successful themselves. Perhaps in their own twisted jealous way they thought that if they got rid of a new writer through ridicule and criticism, they'd have a chance as the hacks and has-beens that they all were.
It seems that my plan of NOT having that argument with my daughter when she got to the age of going off to college has really morphed into something quite different.
Do you want to know what I tell my daughter about college now?
1) Go to a community college for your first couple of years (IF you want to go to college at all). It's a lot cheaper to get your general education stuff completed (like math, science, language, English, etc.) at a junior college without paying an arm and a leg for the same crap you learn in high school.
2) By doing it this way, it'll give you extra time to figure out what you want to do so there's no pressure to figure out your 20+ year career at the age of 17.
3) If college doesn't float your boat, consider a trade school.
4) Maybe college of trade school won't be for you at all, in which case...take that six-figure college trust fund I have for you and go buy some real estate with it. Just don't blow the money on stupid sh*t.
Total 180-degree change from what I thought was how I felt about higher education only a short time ago.
Most of you know that my daughter started the 9th grade this year. Yes, she's in high school. I still can't believe it.
Last night we had "open house." We were walking all around the school which reminded me of a small college campus. She was showing me her classes. I met her teachers. I could feel her excitement about her new school, an excitement that had been completely non-existent in all of her schooling years prior to this (especially with online learning during the pandemic). (I kept telling her that high school would be different and secretly praying that it actually would be for her!)
As I looked around her new school and looked at her, I couldn't believe how fast she grew up. It seems like just yesterday when I was dropping her off to preschool for the first time at a local Montessori. Now she's a high school student. What the hell?
As I drive to and from school to pick her up, I see parents my age. Some of them, I can tell, are remembering their years in high school. Some might have regrets. Others might just be reminiscing about those days. But all of us thinking, Where did the time go?
My daughter has a blank slate. Her whole life is ahead of her. And she can be and do anything she wants.
But this made me realize one critical thing here. We ALL have our whole lives ahead of us. And at ANY time we can choose to be and do SOMETHING ELSE. On a dime. Instantly!
Don't you agree? I think we get "stuck" in life sometimes and we fail to realize that we can PIVOT into something different ATANYTIME.
And that brings me to what I want to tell you.
I'm giving you an opportunity to pivot into something that will likely change everything for you.
The kiddies are going back to school. Maybe it's time you did too.
CLICK HERE to find out what I have in mind for you. It's pretty mind-blowing. Something I've NEVER done before and something I'll NEVER do again!
Apparently one of my last email blasts ruffled a couple of feathers. Actually, just ONE set of feathers to be exact. I've noticed that people in general who know that they themselves are deadbeats and losers, insistent on blaming the world around them for the lack of effort they are putting forth in their own lives, they really get "offended" when I call them out on the obvious. That their lack of success is, in fact, theirfault. Not many people like to take responsibility for their own failures, as it's just easier to blame the government, or this guy, or that guy, or their spouse, or their kids, or everyone else but the person they see in the mirror. If you're one of these people who is insistent on refusing to take personal responsibility to ANY degree about how to better your life, I don't want you reading my emails anymore. (There's a link at the bottom where you can kindly remove yourself off my email blast list right now.)
Such a woman was this idiot named Marina. She sent me an email that looked like it was written by a half-illiterate elementary school child claiming that I don't know what it's like to be poor and starving and this and that. Blah, blah, blah. In which I replied: Yes, I went without many meals as a child. So what? I survived. Yes, we went without utilities as a child when many times basic services were shut off for weeks on end including water and gas. But I made it through. Yes, we were even homeless for a bit. Again, all water under the bridge. The KEY POINT is that don't see me bitching or complaining or needlessly rehashing these memories because I grabbed myself up by my bootstraps (with the help of NOONE, mind you) and went on to become successful on my own. No excuses. Boot camp style, my friend. You find the opportunities. You find the "loopholes" and study how success can be a part of your life. And you take action to make it happen. Very simple. Furthermore, I've come to understand that it's our difficult times in life -- even our most desperate times -- that build us as spirits/souls. Without pressure and stress, a diamond cannot be formed. The best of who you are is defined by the most difficult periods of your life and how you got through, NOT by the happy-happy-joy-joy periods. And we each can choose how to look at it. Boo-hoo about it? Or USE the experiences to make us better? Your choice, my choice, all of our choices. I choose to use it and build on it for success, prosperity, and happiness.
Difference between myself and a loser like Marina is that I don't compile and brainwash myself with a bunch of excuses as to why it's everyone else's fault, feeding myself a daily waterfall of affirmations as to why everything is so bad for me without at least considering that there are other more positive possibilities. I simply moveforward, use whatever tools I have to forge ahead, and I make things happen in my own life. People like Marina, well, they're happy being miserable, sitting in a corner crying all day about how it's everyone else's fault as to why she's too lazy to get off her pitiful ass to make things happen for herself. Even worse, she's blaming everyone else as to why banks won't give her money and on and on. I can only imagine what the communication looks like when she's trying to babble on to a banker or other financial professional the way she talks and writes, like a kindergartner. Then wonders why nobody wants to give her a loan. How about educating herself to come off as a professional? How about figuring out HOW to get the money for deals or HOW to generate more income instead of bitching and complaining that it's everyone else's fault for her own incompetence? Oh, no! Not for Marina, of course.
She went on to say that I know nothing about identity theft. Wrong again, Marina. My entire credit was compromised by my first husband after he opened up several very large credit accounts in my name and then left me with the bill. It cost me a personal bankruptcy that took 10 years for me to sort through. Again, I don't sit around boo-hooing about it. I get my ass into gear and do something about it!
I think she was "offended" because I used the word FEAR a lot. So, maybe it's not fear that's the case for Marina. Maybe it's just laziness. Maybe she's just apathetic. Has she ever thought of that? No, of course not. Again, just easier to BLAME everybody else. Blame Trump and Biden while you're at it. After all, they MUST be held accountable as to why Marina can't peel her lazy pitiful ass off the couch every day to DO something productive other than whining. In which case, she'll never get anywhere, guaranteed. I've learned how to read people pretty good. And I know when a certain someone should just give up and not bother trying to do anything because there is just too much negativity that they're not willing to let go. So, for someone like Marina, I recommend that she just give up now. Don't invest in any programs, seminars, or other materials. She'll find something wrong with all of it even before she tries anything. Best to just stay glued to that couch, continue watching Maury Povich, and wonder in great suspense if that DNA test will prove that the "mo-fo" on TV is really her baby-daddy. (Oh, the suspense!)
For me, I know where I'll be in a few months from now, a year from now, and even 5 years from now. She'll be exactly where she is now. Still pitiful, apathetic, blaming everyone else, and wondering why her life still sucks so bad because she never shut off the negativity valve long enough to see opportunities and possibilities all around us AT ALL TIMES...even moving THROUGH us every second of every day!
So...say you're kind of like Marina and you (ideally and hopefully) don't want to be anymore. It's a choice. Choose NOT to be like her. But I'll make it real easy on you by telling you HOW to not be like her. Start OPENING YOUR EYES to what's going on out there in the world. CHOOSE to focus on the positive instead of falling into the nightly news negativity abyss each day for hours on end.
Here's an assignment for you:
1) Stop watching the news in ALL FORMS for 7 solid days. This includes avoiding Yahoo! News, MSNBC, CNN, FOX, your local nightly news, whatever. You get the point, I hope.
2) Start noticing things around you. Notice ALL of the positive, especially when it comes to wealth. NOTICE the guy driving the new Porsche, or the lady in that hot red Mercedes-Benz convertible. NOTICE. Then listen to what you are saying to yourself. Are you grumbling about why you don't have that? Are you assuming they were born into wealth or stole the money? Then make a CHOICE to switch your thinking and say out loud, "If he can have that, I can have that too." Or, "If she can drive that car, I can certainly find a way to make the money to drive that too." Again, say it OUT LOUD, even a few times, so you can start wiring that brain of yours.
3) Watch nothing negative before bedtime. This includes 48-Hours, Dateline, crime shows or horror movies.
4) Right before you fall asleep, ask how you can achieve certain things you're looking to achieve. For example, you might say, "How can I generate an extra $20,000 per month net in income? What ways are there that can allow me to do this?" Then let it go. Keep repeating this night after night until you receive an answer. You'll have your answer in a couple of days or less!
5) When you get your answer, move on it. Start creating and working a doable action plan. Don't let your mind talk you out of it. Keep forging ahead yet stay flexible for new ideas. You're usually shown new creative ways to get things done when you stay open. Keep working on your plan. Do at least one thing each day to complete your plan.
We can all choose to make this shift or we can choose to make excuses while blaming the world around us. In all reality, we ARE our world. We ARE our universe. And you can make it anything you want. You can choose Marina's universe. Or you can choose to create something completely different.
Your choice, my friend.
See you at the top!

Here we are. Summer is coming to an end. My daughter started high school this year. Here in California, we start school in the middle of August. School seems to start earlier and earlier with each passing year.
Anyway, here's the reason I'm sending you this email: Three weeks ago I had this conversation with my most successful real estate investing student (now investor partner), Andrew Shaw. He's been working one-on-one with some of my higher-level students in getting them funding for their deals.
But that's not what he wanted to talk to me about.
He said, "I know what you're talking about now...you know, all that zen sh** you kept telling me all these years? I get it now."
I didn't understand his point or what he was trying to tell me. All I cared about was whether he's speaking at the upcoming two-day BNB Boot Camp Seminar in Burbank, California on October 1st and 2nd. (I already knew what he'd tell me though.) I think based on the radio silence, he figured out that I was clueless as to what he was trying to say.
Then he said, "You know I am committed to the Funding On Demand Group for the rest of this year and all of next year, right? But after that, I'm out."
"Out? What does that mean?" I asked.
"I decided to retire. There's only so much money I can earn and I got kind of complacent with the Airbnb investing...not having to stress out so much. And I really got used to that. I talked to my CPA and he told me that I have enough to retire. Hell, my daughter Katie and her kids...when she has some kids, that is...they'll all be taken care of for life with all my investments. So, I decided that I'm retiring."
"When?" I did NOT see this coming! "When are you retiring?"
"You know how you talk about picking your 'I Quit' date? Well, I decided that my 'I Quit' date is December 31, 2023. Next year."
Damn, I didn't see this coming. We had already ramped up his Funding On Demand Group and I was expecting that he would offer funding on student deals for at least the next three years. Never did I imagine that it would be so short-lived!
So, it took me awhile to figure out how I was going to break the news to everyone...especially for those of you who are currently part of the Funding On Demand Group. (It's only a year group anyway.) You have one year. And that's it. The last people we can enroll into the Funding On Demand Group will likely be the last week of December or the first week of January because it is a one-year group. So, for those of you who have been sitting on the fence "thinking about it," I'm here to tell you that the opportunity to work directly with Andrew Shaw is coming to an end. CLICK HERE if you think you might be interested in joining the Funding On Demand Group.
To be crystal clear, I did NOT want to do another event, did NOT plan to do another event, and had NO other events scheduled on my calendar. I think I mentioned that last year. NO MORE EVENTS for me.
But...Andrew has a way of persuading people to do things that they otherwise don't want to do.
So, he convinced me to do the two-day event in Burbank, California for October 1st and 2nd because he said he'd be there. He won't speak. (He has a major fear of public speaking.) But he said he'd be there, namely for those who are part of the Funding On Demand Apprenticeship Group (also a one-year program). Each person who attends the event who is a Funding On Demand Apprentice Group student will get a 30-minute one-on-one meeting with Andrew in a private conference room. For the rest of you, he'll probably be at the bar in the evening to chat with some of you.
This is exciting because the last time Andrew attended any of my events was in Detroit a few years ago when I was doing a special Underground Secret Event and he was one of the investors that ended up backing almost $20 million in property deals just from that one event. I thought it was funny because Andrew didn't allow me to point him out. He was in the bar in a casual outfit. And I remember sitting at a table nearby with several students, drinking a cocktail, and I looked over at Andrew (who warned me beforehand that he wouldn't be wearing a suit) and I cracked up laughing. Andrew was wearing a black and red plaid lumberjack shirt and a hunting hat. I almost spit vodka and cranberry juice. I remember a couple of students looking at me crazy-like wondering what the hell I was laughing at. I said nothing because...our DEAL has always been that he wanted to meet people "organically" (as he called it) and to NOT know who he was so he could determine if someone would be a good investor-partner fit for him without having any preconceived expectations. (Hey, those were his rules, not mine.)
So, if you're coming to Burbank, you'll probably get to meet Andrew at the bar. Hopefully he's wearing something better than a lumberjack outfit in his attempt to "play himself down" as an "average guy." You'll see. It'll be like "Where's Waldo?" You can see if you can spot him at the bar on the evenings of October 1st and October 2nd at the hotel where we will be hosting the event. (You'll get hotel information once you register by CLICKING HERE.)
As you go through life, you sometimes have the feeling that things will last forever. I certainly didn't think Andrew would be retiring so soon...or that this will be the last event he'll be talking to students at. (Yes, I did ask him if he's open to doing one last event before he retires next year. I promised to throw him a big retirement bash. He gave me a sharp "HELL NO!")
So, this is it. For those of you who want an opportunity to chat with Andrew Shaw in person, your only chance is going to be in Burbank, California on October 1st and 2nd. THERE WILL BE NOOTHEROPPORTUNITIES...EVER!CLICK HERE to register for the event now, if you're not already registered.
And that brings me to the FINAL thing I'd like to tell you.
I am releasing the 2023 Motherload Resource Directory which has EVEN MORE cash and money resources for you to use to get funding for your deals, for starting or buying a business, or just to get out of debt. There's a new online application portal that you'll get access to and this can get you quick approvals on both mortgages and loans. CLICK HERE to get the 2023 Motherload Resource Directory now!
See you at the top!
P.S. I did say something (in the subject line) about me retiring too. Since Andrew Shaw is retiring out of the real estate game, I'm going back to NOT doing any more real estate trainings, events, and mentorship groups after he's done. (He's the only reason why I came back into the world of real estate trainings, events, and mentorships.) So, you'll be losing both of us at the same time. I highly recommend you jump on board with SOMETHING pertaining to real estate investing with us BEFORE we both retire.
A couple of weekends ago I was helping my dad put up a bamboo fence in my backyard. It seemed simple enough.
Until suddenly I broke out with this nasty angry red rash all over my forearms.
A day later, it spread to my shins and calves.
I was up night after night scratching my arms and legs.
I thought that I had an allergic reaction to whatever chemical they sprayed on the bamboo to keep the pests from eating away at it. This is what they refer to as "contact dermatitis."
Or that maybe when I was standing behind my rosebush, perhaps there was some kind of poison oak or something.
Never in my entire life had I ever had an allergic reaction like this. I was so itchy and it was beyond miserable. I'm still struggling to get this rash under control and I'm scratching my arms in between typing this email to you.
I went to my doctor's office last Friday and he told me that he had several patients come in with the same kind of angry rash on their forearms over the prior two weeks.
And then proceeded to tell me that I was allergic...to the weather.
WTF?? Is this a REAL thing?? Allergies to the weather?
This was a new low when it comes to the "dumbing down" of America. Even doctors aren't immune to the stupidity, it would seem.
I kept questioning him.
"What do you mean...theweather? I've never been allergic to the weather before and I've lived in Southern California since 1987."
"Oh, but there are a lot of people allergic to the weather," he insisted.
"Don't you mean allergies to pollen? That kind of thing?"
"No, you can be allergic to the weather."
And then he proceeded to give me a prescription. For generic Claritin. Even after I specifically told him that I DON'T take generic medication because it never works right. And he told me that he would prescribe the real stuff...as I was thinking to myself...What's the point? I can get it over the counter at CVS.
Finally, he told me that Benadryl would be better, to take that at night, and to be sure to drink plenty of water.
Okay, doc. Whatever you say.
I started to think about what the REAL cause of this sudden rash was IF he was telling me the truth in that there were A LOT of people coming in over the prior two weeks with the same forearm rash. I had a couple of theories. The first one was...some kind of delayed reaction from having Omicron? (I had it in January.) Like a symptom of long-form Covid? Or maybe a symptom from getting the Pfizer shots?
This theory was shot when I met a woman the day after who told me that she didn't have any form of Covid or any of the shots...and she got the same rash on her forearms too.
So...then I have another theory...and this one is kind of scary.
I think "they" are spraying a bunch of stuff into our environment. Maybe to help curtain climate change. Maybe to kill pests. Maybe to kill us. Who the hell knows?! And if you have all this stuff in our environment that is now affecting people's skin, it's only a matter of time before it begins to do some internal damage. Maybe this is why kids and animals are getting cancer at a most alarming rate and in the highest numbers than any other time in history. And maybe my skin rash has something to do with this. And maybe the doctor, when he said it was because of the "weather," really meant it was because of the wind blowing these toxins on my body because I happened to be standing outside, it was windy, and it might've been a heavy-duty chem trail day. Who knows?!
These are just crazy theories. Or maybe not that crazy at all.
All I know is that I'm itchy and it sucks.
Last week I was talking to my multi-millionaire real estate investing partner -- Andrew Shaw -- and I mentioned my skin rash. Then I told him my crazy theories. He simply said, "Probably right."
Then proceeded to ask me about how it was going in bringing on new students to do investor partnership deals with him.
So much for my skin rash...and that maybe I'm dying. As long as he gets some investor partnership deals going...who cares about me, right?!
This is why we're doing a very special and rare event in Burbank, California on October 1st and 2nd on working with the most profitable cash flowing real estate deals right now.
And getting funding from Andrew Shaw and his pool of investors.
If you haven't registered yet for this event, CLICK HERE NOW. Seating is limited. But, most importantly, we're doing what we call the "early early bird deal" where you'll be getting a ticket at the lowest pricing deal possible.
P.S. I'll be doing a very special online training where I'll show you exactly how you can tap into Andrew Shaw's investor partnership pool for the most lucrative cash flowing real estate deals right now: Airbnb properties. CLICK HERE to enroll in this training ASAP. Slots are limited to only 500 people. Once we exceed that amount, the system won't let you in! I highly recommend you enroll NOW...before all the slots are taken. CLICK HERE to enroll now!

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 27 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 willnot 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! (What's wrong with people these days??)
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 PROBABLYNOT.
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 DONOT 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 we won't be
working with him, now or forever more. No exceptions. 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 --
INCLUDING a rare partnership opportunity, 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 heat wave),
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
See you at the top!

I still can't believe it's been that long ago...yet it seems like both yesterday and 100 years ago at the same time.
I've gone through a lot in my lifetime. Yet I attribute a lot of my semi-chronic daily sadness to the loss of my mother, mostly because she died at such a young age (she was only 52) and I feel that we had some "unfinished business" that I felt we needed to heal from before her death.
Some people tell me that I can heal those things regardless of her death but I haven't figured out a way to do that quite yet. So, I'd like to take a moment to say, if you still have your mother around in the flesh living among us, please appreciate her as much as you can and certainly work on healing (if it's necessary) before she goes because you never know when she will take her last breaths...and when it'll be too late for any last words with her.
Earlier this year, Andrew Shaw and I had a very long lunch together in LA and...it was life-changing for me, to say the least.
And for those of you who want to know what we talked about during that meeting, I have something called "The Napkin Report" that we send out with our new book called Free With BNB.
Most of you haven't heard about this book yet because...well, we just released it.
(If you want a copy of this book, CLICK HERE. You'll get The Napkin Report with it which outlines EXACTLY what Andrew and I discussed during this private lunch and it'll blow your mind!)
But that's not why I'm reaching out to you.
One of the authors of this book is my powerhouse student, Cynthia Kelly-West. Many of you have met her in some of my Detroit events. She even spoke a couple of times at these events.
And what she talked about has nothing to do with "traditional" passive income cash flowing real estate. In fact, if you want to know WHAT KIND of cash flowing real estate she specializes in, CLICK HERE and you'll see what it is that she does. (And yes, it's a VERY profitable form of real estate investing.)
THIS is why I decided to do something extraordinary.
P.S. One thing I forgot to mention about the first link I gave you -- the one that includes the Free With BNB book and The Napkin Report -- is that it's free. You just have to pay $19,95 shipping and handling. HOWEVER, if you don't order the free book within 30 minutes, the price jumps up to $119.95. And NO, you cannot call us to (1) get it at the lower price (once you pass the 30-minute deadline) or (2) call to place an order instead of ordering it online. So please don't call the office trying to order the book and the report. We won't let you. CLICK HERE to order it. Have your credit card ready BEFORE clicking on the link. Because once you click the link, the timer starts ticking down from 30 minutes, and then the price goes from $19.95 to $119.95 once it hits zero.
P.P.S. If you want to be part of something TRULY EXCITING that's happening on October 1st and 2nd (which will likely surprise you), CLICK HERE NOW! This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER. Once the deal is over, well...you know the drill (I hope).
You'll get a kick out of this...for a couple of reasons. You'll realize what a bonehead one of my students is and, unfortunately, you may realize that you're being the same way after you've had a good laugh at the ridiculousness.
So...one of my oldest students (not by age, mind you) brags that he's been following me since 2002/2003-ish. So...do the math. That's about 20 years. I think he's one of my "oldest" students still around (although that will probably change after he reads this email).
Yet he doesn't own his own apartment building. He manages one, though. It's 66 units to be exact. And he boasts the fact that he's single-handedly brought it up from a 29% occupancy to full.
Good job. Glad you are making someone else rich while doing all the slave work for your boss. I'm sure he's proud.
But...because he's used to "managing" (not "owning," remember) a 66 unit, it's beneath him to own any building below that amount of units. He wants something bigger, he exclaims. None of this "smaller" building nonsense that I've been teaching my students will do under any circumstances.
It's almost like working for Microsoft as an employee, wanting to start your own business but your new business has to be a Fortune 500 right off the bat or...well, you just won't do it at all.
How stupid is that mentality?!
Yet, as history seems to be unraveling for this student, it seems that wanting to own something bigger is the only obstacle for him not owning anything at all!
By the way, do you want to know the fastest way to piss me off? Introduce yourself to me at any of my seminar events like this, "I've been a student of yours for 20 years but I haven't done shit with any of your information yet."
Trust me when I say that more than a healthy handful of my students have done this and every time it's like listening to nails on a chalkboard through a double bullhorn.
For those of you who have been following me for that long -- or even the past year -- you'll know that I personally have DRASTICALLY altered my PERSONAL investing methodology and strategy to exclusively focus on smaller buildings for the following reasons:
1) No competition with the bigger investors.
2) Properties are "mom and pop" owned allowing for all kinds of creative financing, lowered asking price, land trusts/contracts, etc.
3) Cash flows, by "volume" are actually HIGHER than in a larger building; this is due to the LOWER operating costs by percentage against the gross operating income (gross rental receipts). By "collecting" a bunch of little properties, you can see your overall operating expenses stay a steady low 40% to 45% instead of paying 65% of your gross income out in expenses (as you do with larger buildings).
4) Qualification for smaller buildings is a CINCH, especially if you are a new investor with no management resume, no portfolio of buildings, no experience, and no assets to support a multi-million-dollar loan/mortgage as with what is NOW REQUIRED for you to acquire large multi-million-dollar acquisitions. Banks/lenders do not expect to see any of the above with a small building, as you are a new investor and everyone has to start somewhere.
5) A bank will put up with a lower personal FICO score and/or minor credit deficiencies when the loan risk isn't that high.
Yes, you can invest in larger buildings...as time moves on and as you put together your initial portfolio. But the biggest MISCONCEPTION there seems to be out there is that you need a 100+ unit building to retire.
And you don't. Far from it.
In fact, in my last seminar event, I did a presentation showing how any one of my students could get 3 buildings (all less than $500,000) which would result in a cash flow of $14,000 a month...IN YOUR POCKET. And they weren't large buildings. Each one was very small.
If you can't retire on $14,000 then we need to talk. Even MY personal monthly expenses are below $8,000 a month and I own home worth well over a million bucks and drive 2 luxury cars. So, if $14,000 a month can't work for you then...you're delusional, don't know how to use a calculator, or you're a drug addict. Or a porn/sex addict. Or just a dummy.
So...I guess I lost a student because he's going to still be sitting around, hard-headed as hell, and waiting for another 20 years to buy a building that's "at least" 66 units because, after all, he's been making someone else rich all these years by managing a building this size. And it would be "beneath" him to own something smaller than that REGARDLESS of how kick-ass it cash flows.
You know...like Forrest Gump says..."Stupid is as stupid does."
Hopefully you're not stupid like this, waiting around for no reason.
Now, part of the problem with this student (and many others) is credit and accessing unsecured cash for deals. And the other part is that we're in an overpriced inventory-tight market.
But I have a SOLUTION for BOTH of those things. CLICK HERE and join me for a complimentary real estate training. This is a RARE training because, as you know, I just don't do real estate trainings anymore.
I strongly suggest you register for this one because it's ULTRA IMPORTANT. Click here to register now.

A few days ago I landed here in Honolulu, Hawaii. And I overheard something so ridiculous, I'm still actually quite shocked about it.
As my daughter and I were heading out of the baggage claim area, we were trailing behind this family of four: two parents and a boy...and a girl...? Not sure. Both kids were age 6 and maybe 4.
Anyway, I overhead the mother say to the older kid, "I know you're a girl but all your paperwork still says you're a boy so you have to understand that. Your birth certificate says you're a boy. And until we can get that changed, when people ask if you're a boy or girl, you still have to say you're a boy until we get that changed."
I couldn't believe what I was hearing so I asked my daughter in a whisper, "Are you hearing this?"
I know we had just gotten off a plane from LAX so you can expect all kinds of liberal ridiculousness from California. I live there. I'm used to it.
But this pushed past most of the stuff I can reasonably bend into any kind of justification in my own head.
In other words...I couldn't wrap my head around it.
Now, listen up. I'm all for the whole "be-who-you-want-to-be" bit and if you go to bed one night as a woman and decide the next day you want to be a man, more power to you. Hope it all works out for you.
Should a 6-year-old little kid be able to decide if he/she wants to be a boy/girl that is OPPOSITE of what they were actually born as?
Okay, maybe that's a loaded question. After all, kids decide to become one thing or another depending on how the wind blows because kids are experimental. That's normal. They wear their Superman jammies day in and day out, cape included, because maybe they really believe they're Superman. Or their ballerina outfit. Or clown costume. Or whatever it is. Boys play with dolls sometimes. I know my brother liked playing with Barbie's with me once in a blue moon. (Don't tell him I told you that because he's as macho as they come.) Girls pay with trucks. (I liked Tonka trucks in the mud myself.)
But...when does it become...I don't know...ridiculous??
So...if my daughter told me at the age of 5 or 6 that she wanted to be a boy...here's what I would NOT be telling her: "Okay, you have the right to be what you want to be so...let's have your birth certificate changed to reflect your 'new' sex, okay? After all, you are 6 and I'm fairly confident that you are of the age in which you can make these kinds of adult decisions that will affect you for the rest of your life."
Instead I'd treat it as a "fad" or typical childhood fantasy and let it ride itself out until she's onto the next thing, like wanting to become an astronaut or deciding to go Goth (they call it "Emo" now) by painting her nails and lips black. I would NOT be playing into ANY such childhood phases with anything permanent by making changes that are hard to reverse back later.
So, it comes down to the parents. What kind of parent do you have to be to AGREE to make a PERMANENT CHANGE to your kid's birth certificate...changing it from the sex he was born (BOY) and change it to the sex he wants it to say (GIRL)...at the freaking age of 6??? What the hell is this world turning into...and why am I having such issues dealing with all this right now?
As you know, California is the state where all of this is supposed to be accepted, embraced even. I've lived in California since 1987 and I am finding it more and more difficult to go along for the ride on certain things...such as gender-neutral bathrooms. Since when is THAT a good idea? Having a teenage daughter, the last thing I want in the women's bathroom is some creepy pervert who claims to "identify" as a female for the day just to gain access to the bathroom and commit an egregious crime like rape or molestation. We all know there are too many of THOSE kinds of weirdos walking the planet everywhere we go.
Yet too many people think this thought process is "normal" because we're all brainwashed to THINK that it's supposed to be normal. And when we express that we're "creeped out" by certain things (i.e. men using women's bathrooms, parents changing the sex of their kid from boy to girl at the age of 6, etc.), we're outed as being "un-woke" or whatever the hell they call us nowadays.
A few months ago I was on the NextDoor app and a parent of a first-grader took a screenshot of a "quiz" that was being given to his 7-year-old. He said in his post, "Should I be concerned about this?" And the screenshot showed a picture of a purple unicorn under a rainbow with a bunch of questions that seemed inappropriate for that grade level. These questions included, "Do you think it's okay if this person is a boy or girl?" referring to the purple unicorn. "Do you think this person should like boys or girls?" "Do you think it's okay for you to be attracted to this 'person'?" "Do you think it's okay for you to have feelings for this person?" Some of the questions seemed sexual in nature and I understood this poor father's concern.
Yet the "woke" society quickly jumped on the poor guy saying, "Nope, I don't see anything wrong with any of that." Or... "Seems perfectly reasonable and normal to me." And making him feel like a piece of crap for being concerned and wondering if this curriculum was "normal" in schools these days.
Of course, I couldn't hold my tongue for a split second and I blasted everyone who posted a comment for being so "brainwashed" into "woke-ness," so fearful of being criticized by anyone by actually formulating a logical opinion anymore, that they all lost their minds...and their balls...for speaking up about something that CLEARLY WASN'T APPROPRIATE.
Within about 10 minutes after I posted my comment, the entire post was removed from the app.
Nobody likes to have "uncomfortable" yet truthful conversations. And I'm getting this feeling that apps, society, the government, and big corporations are only allowing us to see, talk about, and react to WHAT THEY WANT US TO. Anything else must be removed. Pretty soon...people who don't agree with all this foolishness...they will be removed too.
If you don't know anything about George Orwell and his books...start reading them. Read all of them. Then you'll understand what our future holds for ALL of us.
But right now, you have options. In fact, it ONLY comes down to ONE option if you think about it. Make a lot of money...then move to a peaceful place (maybe even out of the country) where you can live out your days without being hassled with all this Big Brother nonsense.

I can't help but to notice that the government form I-9 recently expired. This is the form that allows (and requires) employers to ask for identification and verification to be able to work in the United States. Except that I was reading somewhere awhile back that the reason they are "retiring" this form is because it's considered "discriminatory" to enforce certain types of ID.
So...I can't ask someone to verify their residency status here in the United States because I'm "discriminating" butyet if I hire an "illegal alien" then I get fined $10,000 by the government?
This is, yet again, another reason why you should want to own a traditional business with employees, lots of forms to fill out, endless rules and regulations, and the chronic headache you'll be getting from ALL of it...all while it sucks your profit margins dry for the "honor" of dealing with it all.
This is one of the reasons why I absolutely HATE doing business in California in particular. If you do the research on the top "business friendly" states in the country, you'll find California #33 out of the 50 states. Not bad. But certainly not great considering that California is the fifth largest economy in the entire world, larger than most countries. Even larger than Canada (ranking #9 on the world economy list).
When you're a blue state (I'm not being "political" so just here me out), you'll find that there are A LOT more regulations to deal with...more red tape...more bullsh*t to deal with when trying to start and run a business. When you're in a blue country...well, there will be many more federal regulations to contend with.
This is why I shuddered when listening to parts of the boring State of the Union Address when Biden was talking about "going after" fraud. What this usually means (in Layman's terms) is: "I am releasing the hounds on EVERY small, medium, and large business to find ANY kind of discrepancy -- operational, tax-wise, or other -- that we can use to (1) seize all your assets, (2) pile on frivolous "criminal" charges on your back, and (3) make sure you'll never be able to recover again thereafter."
That's what that REALLY means.
So, you have a couple of choices right now in our "blue economic era":
#1: Start a really small "micro" business that is 100% above-board that will NEVER attract any government attention but can make you loads of money; this is even better when you're selling somebody else's products for a commission and don't have to take on ANY responsibility for the products they sell because...well, they're NOT YOUR PRODUCTS!!
#2: Do nothing. Work 40+ hours a week building somebody else's dream and business. Fighting freeway traffic every day. And having the fluorescent lights in your office cubicle suck the life out of you. For the rest of your life. Until you retire. Or until you die.
Those are your only two choices if you think about it. And I think we both agree that #2 really sucks!
By deciding to start all over again (and secretly...I actually am starting again with a brand new money funnel business I just launched IN my brand new office I just opened), I'm do it without employees and run the operation out of a tiny office where I don't show up but maybe 10 to 15 hours per week. I have 3 "employee desks" in this new office. After I had the desks installed, I decided... "Eh...I don't think I want anybody working here after all." Then I won't have to worry about these new government regulations as it pertains to employees, paying people ridiculous sums of money to sit and watch Netflix on MY computers all day, and other business operation disasters that put me in a "damned-if-I-do-damned-if-I-don't" situation.
This is what we call "New School" business. Have a business, operate it on a skeleton crew, and make a lot of money because you're not burdened with "typical" business overhead and problems.
