Success is doing the things that you love to do, and not doing the things that you don’t want to do. For Aunty to have the lifestyle she wants (and Uncle for his lifestyle), we need cash flow, profits, distributions. Build your wealth so you can enjoy your life.

Lessons from a Flipper

Being part of HiREI has many benefits, and one of them is being part of the women's group, Hawaii Women Real Estate Investors (HiWIRE for short). The October HiWIRE meeting was sparsely attended with Gary DeBose as the featured speaker.  Gary has done hundreds, if not thousands of deals, most of them using other people's money and other people's talents to find/purchase/fix great real estate buys, and sell ...

Rich Dads say, so Aunty listens

Aunty's favorite Rich Dad is Robert Kiyosaki.  He had this to say about the recent US government shutdown: "The U.S. Government, due to partisan finger pointing and squabbling, has shut down.   Neither side could reach an agreement on a spending plan for the government.  Mail will still be delivered, the military will still be active, Congress will still get paid, but there are those many other services tha ...

Aunty will be a millionaire for how much?

Aunty just signed up for another newsletter - couldn't help myself - the copy was that good, and the information that I was promised was going to be awesome.... It is a "field manual" survival book and a 12 month newsletter by Dr. David Eifrig (I know, his name could be a joke if you switch around a couple of letters) that will let me know how to get silver coins super duper cheap (no worries Paul, that one ...

Closing Cycles = Wowza!

Aunty was going to title this latest post, "Closing Cycles = Zounds!" but changed it after Aunty looked up the word.  "Zounds" is an abbreviated version of "God's wounds", or a mild oath.  Not very pleasant stuff.   "Wowza" a better word in this situation, interpreted as surprisingly amazing or oh my gosh. In this weekend's seminar with Meir Ezra (review coming soon), we were constantly challenged to define ...

No Money Down?

Aunty has never done a no money down deal.  Why?  Because it is very much harder and more sinuous (having many curves and turns) to do than a deal with money. Most people that go to investing events and courses have a common refrain - "I want to invest but I don't have any money."  The lure of being able to swing an income generating deal without any money is strong, and the projections and testimonies of o ...

Notes from Genius Tour – Meir Ezra

Genius Tour June 14, 2013 Meir Ezra Meir Ezra WOWed all of us.  His presentation was filled with so many golden nuggets of information, splattered with exercises of both the mind and body, as well as some pretty funny dirty jokes in his rather strong and charming Israeli accent.  When he comes to town again (he LOVES Hawaii!!), please go.  [Update:  Meir will be teaching again on August 17 and 18 at the Hya ...

Gurus of Wealth

The best way to get wealthy is slow and steady, not fast and risky.   "But I don't have any money" is the most common cry and stops most people in their tracks.  Successful people will find a way so they do have money to invest. The following are a summary of programs/authors/subscriptions/methods that I have tried and my recommendations based on personal experience that are specific to wealth building: Mic ...

Business Credit

I am learning about obtaining business credit.  This is important to me because currently our action plan to keep buying properties has hit a small road block. The original plan was to purchase a Vegas property in cash (cash is king), cash out refinance the property to get the cash back out, and buy another property.  This was to be repeated as many times as possible until the cash supply dries up. The prob ...

5 Star Rating and good Karma (credit)

Aunty was in a major pickle.  Major.  I didn't even want to tell Uncle about it because he might get mad and make me cut up all my credit cards. See, pal Cookie called to let me know about Wells Fargo's stream line loans that refinance at today's lower interest rates with zero points and $650 closing costs (that's a great deal).  Aunty was in the beginning phase of talking to Kim, one of their loan officers ...

Beginning “The Pledge”

Aunty recently joined the Wealth Builders Club (will give more details in a future post) and one of the bonuses of that program is getting Michael Masterson's new book "The Pledge" in the mail.  I like getting a "real" book, especially if they are hardcover.  Somehow having pages to turn and paper to smell makes it of more value to me than an e-book. I posted about Michael Masterson before - as the man with ...
