We all fall for it. The well-meaning unsolicited "advice" we get to pretend we're listening to. Until it gets too ridiculous to entertain, that is.
As it was in my case.
I mentioned recently that my dad kind of moved into my house. He sort of showed up at my doorstep with a suitcase and I couldn't very well tell him to beat it (even though I wanted to). He's going through some very unique challenges with his wife (who I refuse to call my step-mother). She's very ill and in recent months, because of the drastic changes in her medications, has become violent. So he had to leave or risk having an ice pick plummeted into his skull in the middle of the night. Hence, on my doorstep be ended up.
My dad and I never really had a decent relationship. He was non-existent through most of my adult life. I always got the sense (probably starting with my mother telling me from childhood that my dad never wanted kids) that I was more of an inconvenience being around so I made myself scarce. This is why we barely ever saw one another until recently when he, of course, had no other choice but to find a safe haven from the cataclysmic destruction of his marriage.
So...one of the things I have to deal with now is his self-loathing "I don't know what to do" (which sucks) and difference "advice" he wants to throw out there (which also sucks). And I can't even choose which sucks more.
Especially after he gave me a bit of advice that caused me to completely come unhinged. It was the first (of several) episodes where I found myself actually yelling at him.
And this piece of well-meaning "advice" he gave me that was the cause of my becoming unhinged?
He told me to never express how I felt about religion or politics in the business world to anyone, especially my customers and clients. And that if anyone ever said anything about religion or politics, I should just go along in agreement with everything they had to say about it. Really?
Even worse (yes, it keeps going), he told me that it was his dad who gave him this bit of advice, stemming from when my dad was about 5 years old and a local restaurant owner was telling a patron that he goes to the same church his customer goes to, knowing damn well that it was a lie. His dad explained that it was "good business" to just go along with everything your customers tell you, even lying about important things like religion, because it's all about just getting their money and nothing else. Just agree and take their money was the motto of the day.
First of all, neither does my dad have a business (anymore) nor did his dad have a business (ever). And yet here we have 2 people (one of which is dead) dispensing business advice that (a) is completely negligent of honesty and ethics, (b) isn't part of today's business world here in 2016, and (c) from people who have never had a massively successful business...or any business at all.
I'm NOT here to "say anything" just to "take people's money," as was apparently my grandfather's business advice. For someone to stand for everything and say anything and do anything just to get on a customer's good side...is to stand for nothing. To agree with everything means you represent nothing. You must stand for something, especially in this day and age, otherwise people will lose respect for you. And you'll also lose respect for yourself as well.
But where did all of this stem from?
It was my emails about certain political subjects around the time of the election that set my dad off. Apparently I was supposed to "agree" with everyone. Trump? Fantastic choice for president. Clinton? Fantastic choice as well. No matter what anyone was to say, I apparently was supposed to go along with it. Same with religion, I suppose. Am I Catholic? Sure. Christian? Yep, that too. Buddhist? Of course!
One of my mentors had some pretty heavy things to say about his political choice during some of the stuff happening in our political and economic environment. And guess what? I didn't agree with him AT ALL. In fact, I don't think it's possible for us to be further divided on this topic. But...being the smart common-sense kind of gal that I am, I realize that his political and economic beliefs have nothing to do with the things I'm learning from him in the capacity of marketing and business success. Nothing at all. He can believe with 1000% conviction that the moon is made of cheese. So freaking what if he does? And if I happen to disagree with this "fact" especially having nothing to do with what I'm learning? Maybe I do. Again, that's NOT why I'm learning from him. And only a flim-flam spineless loser would disconnect from someone they're learning a lot from that has a lot to offer their future because they disagree with where they go to church on Sunday or who they voted for on November 8th.
I had to painstakingly explain this to my dad, further explaining that I have a lot of followers who love my no-holds-barred style because I'm honest and about no bullshit. And they know I'm not going to lie to them. For the spineless losers who need to be "agreed with" on their political stances and religious preferences at all times, they can go across the aisle to the waiting snake oil salesman who will agree with everything they have to say provided that they whip out their credit cards so they can be sold every load of unusable crap there is on the market which will make them poorer instead of richer. For people who want to be coddled, agreed with, and pandered to at all times...they've already lost because they'll be hard-up to ever find the "right" person to agree with everything they believe in unless it's someone willing to lie about their beliefs just to take their money. For anyone who actually believes everyone should agree with everything they believe in...find another planet to live on because you're in the wrong place.
Part of the beauty in all of us is that we're all different. We all have different perspectives and opinions. We all have gone through different things which result in different likes and dislikes. And that should be excellent because it allows us to have diversity within our societies. How boring would it be if we were all exactly alike thinking all of the exact same things and formulating all of the exact opinions and beliefs? It's certainly NOT a place I'd want to live or be part of.
Here's something else I'm not going to bullshit you about.
Business AND real estate investing. Our 2019/2020 recession coming up. And how there are several things of economic uncertainty that we are about to face but...if you know how to play your cards right, you'll make out like a bandit.
Truth be told, I made the vast majority of my money in recent real estate years between 2008 and 2010. Then it began to taper down after about the middle of 2011. It's been slowing down steadily since to the point of near-nonexistence in the past several years. You see, opportunities in a good economy aren't that great when it comes to getting deals on real estate. Foreclosures cease to exist. Negotiating a lower price becomes impossible. And everybody (sellers) want top dollar for their properties.
This sucks when you want to make money as a real estate investor.
But right now we're about to enter into a period where you can get some of those 2008 through 2010 deals again and you need to be prepared for it. No, you're not going to start investing yet. But what you WILL be doing is understanding how to do it front to back, step by step, from A to Z so that you can hit the ground running in a few months when the market starts to fall apart.

The other day I gave you a short list of 3 of my most powerful success strategies. Then yesterday I thought about something. I'm perhaps missing one of the most powerful of them all.
Not tithing exactly, even though that counts. But I'm referring to giving to others.
Now, the issue I have with tithing to an organized sect or church is that, for many people, it feels like an "obligatory" type of deal. When anything feels like you're obligated in doing it, immediately it loses all power. Period. No exceptions. Again, I'm not saying tithing is bad. Not at all. But do an "inner check" with yourself to make sure that you feel like you're providing a great service to your church and that the act makes you feel great to the pit of your stomach...or not. The second it doesn't feel anything more than an obligation means that you need to change it up.
There's only one place I've ever felt I've received pure blessings in return for the money I give and that is giving to someone who has nothing but the shirt on his back. Yes, I'm one of those people who routinely gives to the people who stand on street corners with cardboard signs. Yes, some of them are scammers, alcoholics, and drug addicts. So what? That has nothing to do with MY intentions, only theirs. My intention is to help another human being who is in need and that is where the universal power comes in. It matters not in what they do with the money afterward as long as my feelings toward it (to help them out) is there 100%. (To be clear, I don't help absolutely everyone standing around with a cardboard sign. I "feel them out" with my gut to see if I want to give to them or not. I trust my intuition in that way.)
Whenever I give to someone who has nothing to their name, I get the greatest blessings from them starting with the first words from their mouth and their first reaction in getting the money. Usually they sit there with nobody helping out or, even worse, when people feel the need to insult them for asking for money. So, when a kind face comes with a hand full of money, it surprises them. Then, almost always, I get a "God bless you" from them. And it's genuine from the base of their being. And I receive that energy, making me feel great. Then I'm blessed in so many ways because of that energy flow.
This is why I don't like traditional "tithing." The word itself means a tenth...or a tenth of your income. So, it almost seems like a forced payment plan in a way when donating precisely 10% of what you make (gross) to a specific church organization. When things are that structured, the magic begins to dwindle just in the habit part alone. But when you donate money with your best intent and heart in the gift, you are blessed much, much more than any other format out there.
If you're not sure about what I'm talking about, the next person that you see standing there with a sign and nothing to his name, reach into your pocket and pull out a five or ten...or a twenty dollar bill, if you feel so inclined. And pay attention to what is happening within yourself when you do it. Pay attention to the blessing that you feel from the person receiving the money. And most importantly, revel in the feelings you have when you receive that blessing from the recipient of the money. They are always most grateful and the feelings within you send you to the mood with happiness and elation.
Here's what happens:
When all of these energies start flying around -- starting from your desire to give the gift to the deep sense of gratitude from the recipient to your feelings of elation from being able to help someone -- the universe responds with gifts to you. It all works like a big giant vacuum. Nothing can go "empty" for long in the universe. So, technically, your giving money to someone in great need causes this sense of "empty" as far as the energy goes in the universe. You're $20 lighter...or whatever you gave to the recipient. This allows for the universe to "rush in" to replace it, usually at least 10 fold but many times much, much more depending on the levels of energy flow between you and the recipient. I've seen returns of 100 fold or higher in some cases. The good news is that it's pretty immediate.
Here's the slippery slope though. You can't give with the sole intent to get something without any other intentions otherwise this doesn't work. You can't say to yourself, "I'm gonna give twenty bucks to that bum over there so I'll win the lottery tonight." Not gonna happen! But if you're intent is to truly help that person (and it's not only money that helps, you know), the energy intention behind it is absolutely everything in this universal equation.
Don't believe what I'm saying? Test it out. The next person you see holding a sign asking for money, IF you feel inclined to help this person then dig into your pocket and come up with some dough. Give it to him (or her) and feel the energy that comes from the transaction. As you walk away, you'll feel lighter and happier. This, in and of itself, creates more energy and this positive energy pulls to you everything that is in alignment with your soul, your needs, and your life's path.
I'll be talking about THIS and some other things in a RARE Discovery Day that I will have BEFORE my Underground Secret Event begins in March 2019. This Wealth Discovery Day will be on March 8th and the rest of the seminar will be on March 9th and 10th.
Then...in the late morning and afternoon of the Wealth Discovery Day (which is, again, on March 8th and ONLY for Gold and Platinum VIP attendees), I'll be talking about a SECRET that I've never revealed before on getting money for your businesses AND your real estate deals from my most coveted private investors and lenders.
I have some of the most awesome and supportive students (even though I complain about the "bad apples" sometimes). When I sent out my last couple of emails, I got a lot of supportive emails from students telling me that they love my teaching style, that they've been implementing the things I've been teaching, and sharing some of their rather mind-blowing success stories with me. These are the emails I live for. These are the ones that keep me going.
So, what I wanted to do here is share some of my secrets on how success works and why it seemingly eludes you, especially around this holiday season where I know we're "supposed" to feel blessed, grateful, and in the "holiday spirit" even though many of us feel quite the opposite.
Let me share with you my TOP 3 TESTED-AND-PROVEN SUCCESS SECRETS so that you can realize just how easy it is to get everything you want and need in your life, starting NOW.
Here they are:
Success Secret #1: Stop Chasing and Start Attracting
Success and wealth absolutely HATE desperation. Just like you would hate talking to or having to do with anyone who is desperately hanging onto you at, say, a cocktail party. Wealth and success are both the same way. The more you try chasing it down, the more it escapes you. It's like running after a chicken at full speed in a backyard the size of an acre. Catching that little sucker probably won't happen. And if it does, it was at the great expense of wasting a lot of time while tiring your ass completely out in the process, making you think out loud, "Was this really worth the effort?"
Desperation reminds me of an oil drop in a cup of water. You'll notice that the drop repels the water around it, pushing it away. Yes, they "sort of" co-exist in the cup but not really. The water is under the oil, wishing it wasn't there since the oil itself is a burden upon it. You can't be that burden to success. You can't try fitting in somewhere that you don't belong. You have to BECOME wealth and success in order for it to want to infiltrate your life with its gifts.
So...what do you do? How do you stop chasing?
I think the answer is within the question. STOP CHASING. It's that simple. Sit down, take a breather, re-evaluate your life and what's important, and create a money-making strategy that you're passionate about where the strong desire overcomes the desperation for the money. You then focus on the passion, the project, and the business. The money will come because you've stopped chasing it. It's that simple. Remember, you can't do things just for the money because that's chasing it down. Chasing equals success eventually coming to you because you've stopped chasing and started focusing on the passion of the project. See how that works?
The basis of this is letting go. When I start getting stressed out about my businesses or something I really can't control, the secret is saying, "F*** it!" and just letting it go. When you've done all you can do, sometimes you have to let those invisible hands help you with things you can't do on your own.
Success Secret #2: Being Grateful for What You Have Now...AND a New "Twist" to Gratitude
I'm always sitting on the fence when it comes to trying to decide whether I want to write a metaphysical book...or not. One moment I think it would be unique because it'll talk a lot about my experiences with Heaven and how things are over there (or rather here but most people don't see through that thin veil)...or if I should just keep those experiences to myself. One moment I think it would help people but on the other hand, we're such a screwed up world that I think most people are beyond help. Then I internalize and keep everything to myself. I'm not sure if that's beneficial or not but for now it works for me. As messed up and violent our world has become, sometimes internalizing is the best thing to regroup.
One of the bases of success is being grateful for what you have now. I really am grateful...for absolutely everything. I'm grateful for my beautiful daughter and every moment I get to spend with her. I'm grateful for my dog (Sally) and my 3 cats: Pineapple, Scooby and Bobo. I'm grateful for my business, my students, my wonderful and supportive staff, and everything else -- good, "bad," or otherwise!
But it's not good enough to throw around the phrase "I'm grateful..." then adding a bunch of things to the end as if you're reciting what you're going to say at the Thanksgiving table this upcoming November. You have to believe it, know it, and feel that sense of gratitude in the pit of your stomach for it to count. When you're grateful for what you have, even if it's only a little, the universe wants to give you more or give you ideas (those "Eureka!" moments) on how to get more. You have to respect God and the universe for what's been provided to you already (even if it's not that much) and you have to PROVE that you have that respect otherwise nothing more will be provided to you.
It floors me at how many students I communicate with who complain endlessly in an email to me. Never once do they give kudos to what they have or how they got it nor do they give thanks for the things that will be provided to them in the weeks, months, and years to come. Yes, that's right. There's a TWIST to this. You can (and should) be grateful for what you have now and the experiences you've had that has benefited you to this point. You can (and should) also express gratitude for what the universe is about to provide to you from resources to ideas to money to...all of it! Then that throws the expectation ball into the universe's court and it works every time in attracting what you've been grateful for if you do it from a state of conviction, honesty, and integrity. So, do it. Each night come up with 5 things that happened that you were grateful for that day. The next day, list 5 things that you're expecting will happen to/for you that you're already grateful for. Do this for a solid 7 days and see how magically your life changes.
Success Secret #3: Freaking Go for It Already!
Tire kickers are at the very bottom of my list of people I'd have a conversation with, usually involuntarily at that. Lazy people suck and I have no patience or use for people like this. I can't make someone be motivated. I can't teach someone common sense or how to be smart. There are a lot of limitations I have as a teacher and trainer without a working magic wand. But the basis of all success comes down to one single thing: ACTION. And you can't take action without deciding to go for it and just f****** do it already!
I love the notion of deciding on something. To me, it's quite possibly the single-most powerful action you can take without actually lifting a finger. And it's the prelude to where the magic happens. But to decide without doing, that's certain death right there. You can't say you're going to do something then waffle away into flakey-dom while binge-watching the latest season of The Game of Thrones while taking no action for your new idea. That is disrespectful to yourself and it's certainly disrespectful to the universe who, presumably gave you the idea to move forward with whatever it is you decided on to begin with. And when the universe passes out ideas that you get all psyched up about then end up doing nothing with, the ideas stop coming to you and are given to the DOERS in the world who will take action.
Fear is the biggest motivator for people to buy things. It's also the biggest action inhibitor ever known to man. Fear can physically paralyze someone into a complete stone-like state. This is why they call it being a deer in the headlights. Standing still will get you nowhere.
Let me share a little tiny secret to the universe that can make you all the difference in your life right now. The universe LOVES movement, even if you start on a path that turns out to be the wrong one, it'll quickly put you on the right path by throwing out new ideas, having different people come along with new resources, or whatever is needed to put you in the right direction. Here's what the universe hates: non-movement, stagnation. If you're going to stand still, the universe will help someone else who is in motion and in need of the assistance. It'll come back to you when you get off your ass and start moving in a specific direction.
This is why I don't worry about making mistakes. If I'm not sure of the direction I want to take but I have an "inkling" of what I want to do, I start the movement and then I'm further guided into what I really should be doing. It happens every time. You just have to TRUST the process and KNOW that this universal system will work for you...because it works every time.
I have a powerful business and investing direction to put you into RIGHT NOW that WORKS EVERY TIME. In fact, it's made quite a few of my students MULTI-MILLIONAIRES and it can work just the same for you if you're willing to roll up your sleeves and do it.
Okay, I cracked. I decided to do another seminar event but ONLY because of this upcoming recession that I only learned about recently. And you need to be prepared because, with a recession, you get DEALS, foreclosures, and more creative financing options than ever!
What's awesome about this upcoming event is that I'm doing a Wealth Discovery Day FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER the day BEFORE the event starts. This is for Gold and Platinum VIP ONLY. This Wealth Discovery Day will take place on the first day or March 8th and I'll go over CUTTING EDGE secrets on getting money from investors and banks with a SIMPLE SECRET that's no more difficult than snapping your fingers. Guaranteed!!
Then on March 9th & 10th we'll be covering all the nitty-gritty on a BRAND NEW SECRET BUSINESS that I've NEVER revealed before including a partnership opportunity (on March 9th) and some very unique real estate cash flow opportunities INCLUDING 2 additional partnership opportunities (But one that is VERY unorthodox...even for myself!)
When recession hits, strategies MUST change otherwise you won't be able to make money in this ever-shifting economy. Don't get LOCKED OUT from being able to survive in our upcoming turbulent economic times! Get the latest and greatest money-making strategies otherwise you'll risk being left out in the cold!

I've been sensing that things have been a little "off" for awhile now. And the earliest I can pin-point this "off-ness" would be somewhere in the spring of this year. And to put my finger more directly on what this means, I started to notice (while living in denial, of course) that our housing market in California started to show signs of cooling down. And it has been showing these signs for 2 years now!
California tends to lead the trends in our country since we do have the 6th largest economy in the entire world. I first noticed the "signs" of our recent Great Recession in September 2006 here in southern California. I noticed a "definite" sign of this in the spring of 2007 when people selling real estate had to start dropping prices just to get buyers...and buyers were becoming scarce during this period. The rest of the nation wouldn't become neck-deep into this recession until late 2007. By 2008, everyone who wasn't living under a rock noticed that our economy was totally screwed. By 2009, even those living under a rock noticed that we were in a deep recession by then.
And now it's repeating itself. While I've been trying to live in denial about it, it appears that looking the other way won't help it go away (unfortunately). And just like those first "signs" I noticed back in September of 2006, long before the rest of the nation would have had their first clue of what was to come, I've already gotten that whiff of economic change earlier this year and through the summer, starting with our housing market doing exactly what the market started doing back in the spring of 2007. Right before the economy went to hell in a hand-basket.
Now...I have good news and bad news for you.
First, the bad news. We're slipping into a recession as we speak. Some would call this a "slight" market "correction." Whatever you want to call it, the slow-down is coming.
And it's coming fast.
I don't know how long it'll last. I think most time-frames shown or allocated for a recession are short-changed by locale and other factors. Although many recessions last about a year, the after-effects are usually much, much longer. (Can you believe "they" said the Great Recession was only 18 months long? Yeah, right. More like SEVERAL YEARS long in reality due to the after-effects and massive economic trauma that some industries, still to this day, are still feeling the effects from!)
So, we're slipping into another recession that probably won't become evident to you until early next year. It'll start to recess more visibly after the election and then will "do its thing" after the first of the year.
Recessions are normal. Expansion also comes with contraction. That's just how economics work. I just think it's too soon, all while our economy is still quite delicate from the last major recessive blow we had!
Why have I had my head in the sand so long over this? Why hadn't I said something sooner? Like I said, I was living in denial. Nobody wants another recession just after our last Great Depression seemingly ended. And I didn't think the timing was here...yet. Until I remembered something critical about timing. CLICK HERE for my mind-blowing realization that made me realize the recession is coming quick!
Once you listen to my short audio seminar (CLICK HERE), you'll probably sh** your pants. And then say, "Not again!"
But here's the good news in all this. With a contracted economy means LOWER PRICING on property deals AND a brand new SECRET BUSINESS opportunity that I've NEVER showed my students before. Not ever! Now THIS, my friends, is what I have been waiting for! This is a true game-changer in EVERY WAY!
So I decided to do something I didn't set out to do anymore just to show you how you can wildly profit from this upcoming recession.
Over the years people have asked me to summarize how to become a successful real estate investor and are usually sorely disappointed to find out that I cannot stuff all of these "secret strategies" inside one short paragraph, or on the back of a Chinese fortune for that matter.
But I can give you some overall strategies that will clearly pinpoint how to become a successful cash flowing real estate entrepreneur. Five to be exact.
Here they are...
#1. Decide on some type of Passive Income Asset that can keep giving you a positive cash flow month after month, year after year. This means narrowing down your type of what we call an "asset class" down to something that can give you this type of income. This also means avoiding those other pesky types of real estate investing opportunities that I put into the Aggressive Income category such as flipping property because this robs you of (a) long-term cash flow, and (b) valuable tax write-off benefits. I recommend investors new to the Passive Income game to think about and seriously consider residential-commercial acquisitions, namely apartment building investing or mobile home park (MHP) investing since this type of investing can give substantial monthly cash flows while helping you weather through recessions unlike other types of Passive Income Assets such as office space or industrial/warehouse properties.
#2. Find your ideal "farming area" or area in which you will be building your real estate "empire." This will be ONE area only and CAN be 1,000+ miles away from where you live. (I'll explain in a minute why you don't have to be anywhere near your assets.) Most newbie real estate investors start local to where they live. This is natural because they want to see the properties and have more of a hands-on approach to their property management. Plus, since most newbie investors get involved in flipping, they kind of need to be local to the property if they're going to do minor or extensive rehabbing on the property. Since you're getting involved in Passive Income Assets, you don't need to be in the same city in which you will invest. This gives you the freedom to literally go anywhere in the country to invest. I originally discovered this freedom back in 2001 when I realized that investing in my tri-county area (Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties) were just not that profitable. And forget about venturing down to Orange County or up to Ventura County where properties were ultra-expensive, giving no cash flow even if I were to give up 50% cash down to secure the deal. This is when I started investing on the gulf side of Florida then expanding upwards through the middle portion of the state...until I ended up in Georgia where some of my most profitable deals have come to fruition. You have to go where the cash flow is. Plain and simple. It's smart and definitely a manageable strategy IF you know how to pull it off.
#3. Getting the money and financing for your deals is quite possibly the most challenging aspect of real estate investing, especially for new investors who don't have any contacts or access to private investors. This is the secret to breaking into the business: getting the financing, getting the credit, getting the loans, and getting these fiscal resources together. Many people don't realize that they have access to more resources and contacts than they know. Others just need some doors opened up for them to get them started. The ideal way to acquire a cash flowing property deal is to have the 20% cash down and to have decent credit (700+ FICO) to be able to get approval for the mortgage financing. This is why I have extensively taught my Aggressive Income Strategies throughout this entire year (to this point) because it has allowed my students to raise this cash to get involved in these deals. But even I don't like using my own money for deals if I can help it. And that's when the benefits of understanding the art of raising capital becomes extremely valuable. For my students who think raising capital is hard, think again. It's much easier than you think once you understand the simple steps behind it that are required.
#4. Create or find a good management company to manage your out-of-state assets. This is HOW you're able to invest anywhere. You have somebody else doing it for you whether it's your own management company that you created or a management service. Many of my newbie students freak out when I tell them to buy property out of state. They're first questions are about looking at the properties and managing them. Okay, so you will have to get on a plane here and there to look at and acquire your properties. (Most escrow and closings can be done via FedEx.) You'll want to look at, say, 12 to 15 properties at a time when you fly out until you quickly realize that, since this game is all about the cash flow, looking at properties becomes a complete waste of time. (You have contractors and property inspectors who are professionals in their field look at these properties since, chances are, you are not an expert in state building codes in the state you will be acquiring properties nor are you an expert on determining if there is structural viability to the properties you are viewing...nor are you an expert in the neighborhoods in which the properties are located. It takes a few trips to your farming area to realize that you really do have to rely on EXPERTS to do this work for you and that you looking at properties yourself really does nothing valuable in the process at all.)
#5. Understand the reality on what it takes to get rich in cash flowing investments. BUY AND HOLD FOREVER. Yes, that's right. Buy the property and hang onto it until you're 6 fee under and it doesn't matter to you anymore. You only need a handful of small apartment buildings to get rich. Between 5 and 10 properties is all you need to be set for life. Rents typically will DOUBLE in most areas of the country every 15 to 18 years. And by flowing more of your profits back into each property by paying down the principle of each mortgage, you'll be able to pay each property off within 10 years. Imagine your cash flow in 15 years with doubled rents and no mortgage! Exactly. THIS is why you never let those properties go. Not ever!
I'll be talking about my MOST CUTTING EDGE real estate investing strategies INCLUDING 3 partnership opportunities in my upcoming Underground Secret Event on March 8th, 9th, and 10th in Los Angeles. I'll also, for the first time ever, be talking about my SECRET BUSINESS that will knock your socks off.
AND, I'll be sharing with you an absolutely incredible game-changing strategy when it comes to getting ENDLESS amounts of partnership cash for your deals. This is something I've NEVER revealed before and I'll be talking about this on the very first day which I'm calling my Wealth Discovery Day (on March 8th, only for Gold and Platinum VIP attendees).
I'm doing a NEVER-to-be-repeated EVER Thanksgiving deal on this upcoming event that will allow you to LOCK IN YOUR SPOT and your incredible "Monica-Definitely-Went-Crazy!" pricing deal with only $100.

Time to start investing now! After all, if you don't start now then when will you...?
Many of you know that I've been working on other projects, namely writing a (future) bestselling book. It's a big project and it's something I need to focus 100% on between now and at least the first half of 2019.
This means that I'm not able to be as active as a middle-man between my students (including you) and my investors. So, I'm going to have to leave it TO YOU to contact these investors DIRECTLY.
So, yes, I want to give you my DIRECT CONTACT LIST of investors who are looking for deals to do partnerships with.
And they have their pens ready to write checks for sizable down payments on some of the real estate deals and projects you are looking at right now.
These opportunities -- the ones to work DIRECTLY with a specific investor partner of mine -- DO NOT come along very often.
In fact, I can count on ONE HAND how many times I've allowed DIRECT ACCESS to any given investor partner of mine.
This is one of those RARE opportunities...where you can have DIRECT access to an investor partner who can:
1) Fund the down payment of the deal.
2) Offer credit (to get a mortgage and rehab money, if needed).
3) Offer a management resume and investment portfolio (since most lenders require this in today's day and age).
4) Offer a VOD (Verification of Deposit) that will go with your offer.
5) And be willing to SPLIT the deal an EVEN 50/50 of the gained equity and monthly cash flow.
Quite honestly, this is the VERY BEST partnership opportunity I've EVER offered my students before.
And, sadly, it's ending tomorrow. Once this ends, you WILL NOT be able to access this investor EVER AGAIN.

Remember, this opportunity ENDS TOMORROW and will NEVER be offered again.
When I was 14 years old, I aspired to become a bodybuilder. I remember idolizing the likes of bodybuilders of the time, like Cory Everson, Bev Francis and Rachel McLish.
Then I got a shoulder injury at some point when I was in high school. It was my right rotary cuff (thanks to not warming up enough one morning); still to this day it bothers me, especially when it's cold outside.
Fast forward 30 years later and I decided to get back into weight training. No, I'm not going out to place in the Arnold Classic but I really like having a toned body. And realistically, there's only so far that yoga can take me.
I began building a home gym out of a spare bedroom that I used to use as a home office. As I was setting everything up, I realized that it was 30 years ago -- almost to the DAY -- that I would have only DREAMED of having such a set up to work out in.
And now I have it.
I have that...and so much more!
In fact, I can have anything and everything I want because I'm 100% financially free. And it's due to ONE thing: REAL ESTATE.
But not just ANY kind of real estate. Buy-and-hold assets is where the money is at.
Right now, there's only ONE type of real estate investing you should be considering...at least between now and through the first quarter of 2019. CLICK HERE to find out what I'm talking about.
Listen, you can either get out there and start moving in the real world of investing. Or you can just start listing off some New Year's Resolutions for January 1st which, as we BOTH know, is just a list that gets thrown in a drawer, never to manifest into anything real.
I decided that I wanted to get my gym up and running. And when I'm done with 2 upcoming business/pleasure trips through the next few weeks, I'm going to start on a solid 5-week workout regimen so that I can have gained a strong foothold into my fitness goals BEFORE January 1st.
After all, why wait??
And I strongly recommend you do the same.
What is the benefit of kicking your goals and dreams into next year, just to find yourself in this very point next year -- post-Halloween, pre-Thanksgiving...thinking about starting again on January 1st -- and never gaining any traction toward your financial goals.
STOP IT! Stop the insanity NOW!
CLICK HERE because I have something quite extraordinary for you. And this will separate the doers from the tire-kickers.
I know I have. The economy has cooled off in the major metropolitan areas of the country.
I've been noticing this shift for a couple of years now but, over the last couple of months, it seems to have gotten ICE COLD as far as I can tell.
It reminds me of being on a roller coaster when there's that pause when you reach the top, right before the coaster goes careening down at a super fast speed. This is the point when your heart is beating out of your chest in anticipation. And that's the precise moment we're at RIGHT NOW...at that "pause" at the top, before we come crashing down.
So, what do you do now? Do you just watch and wait? What's the right answer in dealing with our upcoming recession?
There IS a little-known real estate profit opportunity that you may not have considered to this point. In fact, I talk about it at great length in a brief audio seminar that I have prepared just for you.
CLICK HERE to access that audio seminar now! I think the opportunity in real estate will surprise you a little!
If you want to PROFIT from this upcoming recession, you MUST change up the game a little. This requires moving into a completely new type of real estate investing, at least for a short while.
