Timeless Wisdom

We often hear people say, “patience is a virtue.”  It’s a simple phrase, yet it has become a fairly common, conventional expression which is well understood by most of us.  What you might not know is, to the best of our knowledge, this phrase first appeared in a poem titled “Piers Plowman” which was written…

The Power to Persevere

How many of you out there reading this can say that you truly love what you do?  As a quick side note, if you cringed a bit just now, there’s a good chance you might be in the wrong career, industry, or business. How many of you out there aspire to mediocrity?  Simply being average…

The Fire Inside

OK…so it’s been a while since I blogged.  I’m really doing a terrible job at keeping up with this site as often as I should be.  But thankfully, it’s not from apathy or a lack of commitment.  It’s simply because I have jam-packed my calendar and have struggled to make time to do this.  But,…

2017: The Anti-Resolutionist

Well, it’s officially 2017.  I can’t say that I am not absolutely stoked about kicking this year off the right way!  This will be my first full year doing real estate, and I already have potentially three deals lined up for the next month and a half.  I’ve also had a ridiculous amount of luck…

Back At It Again

           Wow…it’s been a long time since I last posted.  I really want to keep up on getting content out there on this site, so I hope this is the first of many updates to come.  SOOO much has happened since July, I don’t even know where to begin.  But I’ll…

Harder Than it Looks

  I was planning to write a nice blog post about goal setting, and about how important it is in life and in business.  I still believe that to be true, but for the time being I have put it on the shelf for another day.  Today, something much heavier is on my mind, so…

A Staggering Statistic

I haven’t blogged in a few days, and I was feeling like it was time to write something.  I just finished up week 2 of Real Estate School here in beautiful Charleston, SC.  If I’m being honest however, I don’t think I know much more now than I did when week 1 kicked off.  It’s…

Above and Beyond

So, today was the first day of real estate school.  I didn’t expect to learn nearly as much as I actually ended up learning, but I can tell this is going to be a tough 3 weeks.  There is a lot of information to study and retain, and it’s coming at us at lightning speed….

A New Chapter

Well, here I am again.  After a few months hiatus where I was trying to figure out my next move, and at least six failed attempts to log in to my WordPress account (I had forgotten my password) I’m back and better than ever.  Well, kind of.  I’m on the brink of something big though….

The Return of the Refund

  It’s back! The best time of the year!  Well, besides Christmas.  And Thanksgiving.  And the Fourth of July, and my birthday… Even so, as far as times I look forward to the most every year, tax return season definitely ranks in the top five.  And I know I’m not alone in this.  For most…

The Money Machines

Before I start this blog post, I feel it’s prudent to remind all my readers that I am not a certified financial advisor.  I have made every attempt to convey to you guys that all the information I offer on this site is purely speculation and opinion.  Pick and choose what is useful to you,…

Cheap is the New Rich

I was inspired by a post I saw on Twitter today from my friends over at MarketWatch discussing NFL star Ryan Broyles and how, even though he has made over $2 million dollars in his football career so far, he still lives on $5,000 or less per month.  It was a nice parallel to my…
