It’s good to be back.
After a good break from the site, I’ve decided to come full circle and continue the blog. Melissa and I have talked a lot about it and have come to the conclusion that I just did not give the blog enough of a chance. When I decided to shut it down, I was just too overwhelmed with everything and wanted to simplify my life a little.
In the beginning, it was a great motivator and allowed me to have all of you hold me accountable to stay on track to build our business back up to our previous level. That was a positive goal and the blog really did help me to work towards that. The coming of my son was not a part of that and took priority. Knowing that more time was going to be needed to attend to all that comes with a newborn, it felt like we were holding back and hesitant to commit to too much.
I just didn’t want to get too busy and I felt like the blog was becoming too much work and was the easiest thing to cut out.
Sometimes I miss it though. It was a great way for me to organize my thoughts and connect with other investors. A lot of you have been expressing how much you enjoyed it and wish it were still active. That has caused me to really consider whether to bring it back.
And that’s what I’ve decided to do!
I’m just going to have fun with it and write about what I want to write about, when I want to write about it. For now at least, there won’t be a set schedule but I hope to post regularly.
I’ve also been working on something that I am very excited to be developing that will be of tremendous benefit to all investors. Sorry, but it will remain somewhat under wraps for now. Subscribers to the blog (you can subscribe for free) know what I’m talking about and I hope they will keep it out of the comments for now.
Lately, I’ve been reading some really good books that have provided a lot of motivation that I would like to share with everyone. Maybe we can have a sort of book club where we can all read the same book. My next post will be about a book that I am reading right now that is really motivating me. It’s amazing how a book can help ignite the flame of burning desire to get things done and improve your life.
We just got back from vacation. AirVenture 2012 was awesome. Yes, the family agreed to go and see another week long airshow again this year. I’m so lucky that they indulge my interests so much. 🙂
We rented a lake house for the week and so they were able to go swimming every day and we all had a great time. What was especially nice was that my Dad was able to come along and spend the week with us. Some of the airshow performers practiced every morning over the lake where the house was so we got an aerobatic show every morning.
I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what we have been doing investing wise. Well, we’re still doing retail and wholesale flips mostly. I’m still selling leads to properties I’m not interested in to other investors. Nothing really new or ground breaking. Just consistency. That after all, is the true secret to success.
Don’t worry. There will be more how-to and ideas posts.
