Life is a journey & tomorrow is Monday…

Tomorrow is Monday and the first real work week of 2019.

I’m resetting my vision and focus and once again adopting these rules for success.

On my journey I’ve adopted these rules.

I work toward self discipline and total responsibility in all areas.

This is my journey.

I don’t impose my journey on anyone.

If you want to adopt a similar journey or an opposite journey that’s your decision and responsibility.

Upward basketball is in full swing…

Alaura and Alison are both playing this year and Amy is coaching Alaura’s team.

This makes for overlapping schedules but is so worth it. They have such a great time playing and learning in this environment.

It’s fun to see the progress they make throughout the year too. Their ball handling skills improve as do their communication skills.It’s an all around great experience for the kids.

A big thanks to Brett Stamps for organizing the program this year. 💪

Closed another deal…

 

I’m a little behind getting this post up but we closed 2018 by purchasing another property. This makes unit number five and we are very happy with it and the deal.

It’s a 1200 sqft two bed one bath with central heat and air and with a fenced yard. New carpet, paint and appliances. 😁

Special thanks to Louis and Susan Baldwin for representing us again. They are first class professionals and wonderful friends. They are “OUR” Realtors and should be yours too!

And a very special thanks to Amy for being there by my side though all the ups and downs of the rental business. ❤️

Dare to dream big, take action and never quit!

I almost forgot…a big shout out to Paige Barhorst at Fugitt Law Office. She is an excellent attorney and handles all of our work.

NOW IT’S TIME TO STEP ON THE GAS!

 

Ps. We closed November 30th and had a signed lease on December 22nd. That’s the fastest turn around we’ve had to date and I’m looking for more deals like this one.

Be great!

-Steve

Investment property ups and downs…

One minute I’m collection rent and on top of the world because I’m thinking “this business just might work” then I get a text from a tenant that just says “Steve!!!” and has this picture attached. 😳

Holy cow!! Looks to me like the toilet has turned into a washing machine!

It’s all part of the property ownership package though. The fun part is finding, negotiating and buying the properties. The less fun part is the property rehab, finding great tenants and of course plumbing issues.

I’m fortunate the person who lives in this property is a great tenant! Very understanding of the “old house” issues we are having and willing to work through them with us.

If there is one skill that a person needs to master to be a good landlord it is the ability to find great people to partner with. Not only the realtor, banker, attorney, and contractor but the tenant. Great tenants will take care of the property, work with you when there are maintenance issues and keep their rent paid on time.

I could write a best selling book about the things we’ve experienced in the investment property business. 😁

Make your goals a priority…

If you are reading this, I dare you to dedicate the next 6 months exclusively to your goals.

No announcements, just fall back and do the work.

If you’re already doing something that’s working for your then double down on it.

You should have a list of goals in the following areas:
-Health (physical, mental, spiritual)
-Wealth (your income, savings & investments)
-Love (relationships)
-Happiness (what makes you happy?)

Make your goals a priority.
