A few weeks ago I stumbled on show called Whisker Wars on the IFC channel. The program is a reality show that revolves around the extreme facial hair lifestyle. The show is pretty interesting and coincidentally, my introduction to it coincided with my business partner’s quest to look like one of the show’s participants. Last [...]
One of my favorite parts of being a Real Estate investor is when the phone rings with motivated seller calls. For me each call is an acknowledgment of my marketing plan. It also marks the start of a new adventure – like a hunt for buried treasure. If you’ve done any of your own marketing, [...]

I had an absolutely wonderful weekend. Memorial Day is one of my favorite national holidays. It’s become the unofficial start of summer. Boy do I love summer. This year the hot weather followed a ton of rainfall on the East Coast. As a result we’ve been really blessed with green grass, blue skies and enough [...]
The other day I got into an argument with Ian. He’s my business partner in our home buying company. Ian and I are about as harmonious as a shaved bear in a bee hive. It’s not uncommon for us to disagree. We have opposing personalities. While this keeps our business in check, it can lead [...]
