It’s no secret that America has a huge labor shortage. In fact, I saw a huge banner plastered on a Taco Bell down the street from my office that was offering $18 an hour to anyone willing to show up for work. It’s weird though, isn’t it? There was a labor shortage before the pandemic,

Investor with Small Thinking Mentality Tried to Screw Me Over

On Wednesday, I told you that I got screwed over by someone when they went behind my back to steal a deal from me. The Lord’s Prayer says we have to forgive others or we won’t be forgiven ourselves. That happened right about three years ago and I’m still a little angry about it. I’ve

I Can Outlast a 20 Year Old

Unlike most real estate coaches, I actually practice what I preach. In addition to helping real estate investors get started and grow their business, I am an active investor myself.

What Happens When You Ask Elon Musk for a Raise?
