Real Estate Newbies – The Last Day of the Year and What is Your P.L.A.N.?

That is the theme for 2012 – P.L.A.N. –

If you recently saw the new fitness commercials with Janet Jackson, you saw they have the same theme – You have to have a Plan. No matter what it is that you want to achieve, you need a plan. These words also remind me of an episode of Life After on TVOne that featured actress A.J. Johnson of House Party fame with Kid n’ Play. She said when she finished college and decided she wanted to take the plunge into acting her father asked her, “What’s the Plan?”
It has taken me a while to realize that very same thing. No matter what you want to do – lose weight, find a job, start a business, become a real estate investor – and do any of these successfully – You have to ask yourself “What’s the Plan”? I came up with the acronym you see above Prepare, Lock-in, Activate, Now.

Prepare. You have to prepare yourself and get organized with what it is that you want to do.
Lock-in. You have to decide exactly what it is that you want to prepare for.
Activate. You have to write it down so you can see it.
Now. Now you have to go and do what you prepared what you locked-in and wrote down then take the next step and go and do it NOW – Take Action—NOW or it won’t get done.

As we end this year and look forward to 2012, let’s all make it the best year that we can each have. Even if you don’t think you can just Prepare to Lock-in in order to Activate so you can do it Now.

Have a Happy New Year Everyone – Be Safe and Much Luv to you and Yours


The Year is at an end and what have you Accomplished?

Wow! It looks like another year will be gone in a few days. The question is What Have You Accomplished? I know most of us want to kick ourselves because we didn’t get the big check yet or we don’t have that first sale yet or we didn’t do something else that would otherwise look like success. Well, I’m here to tell you that it is OK. Why? Because you’re still here wanting to accomplish those things and you have not given up. Staying in the Process and not giving up is one of the hardest things to do especially if you are like myself — on this journey mostly alone. Yes, your family and friends wish you well but they are probably secretly wishing you would just let this “thing” go and stop wasting your time or if you’re not working a job they wish you would go and get a “real job” and stop wasting your time because you’re never going to {fill in the blank}. Well, that’s their problem. If they don’t believe in you it’s because they don’t believe in themselves and you cannot let other people’s lack of success become your own. So love them and let them think and believe whatever they choose to because you and me are here for the long haul. We are NOT giving up until we get the big check or make the first sale or accomplish whatever it is we set out to do because we are not quitters – we are WINNERS! and winners NEVER quit. We may get pissed off and frustrated and throw stuff or even shed some tears but that’s ok – we will get there. One Day at a time.

It’s not easy learning how to build a business. That’s why you need a mentor.

I know I need a mentor because it is very difficult attempting to reach the level of success that I want to reach by myself. How am I going to get there if I don’t know what the hell I’m doing? I need the assistance of someone who has achieved and is achieving what I want. I found some fabulous people that I am going to work with in 2012. Here’s my list:

Kadena Tate of I’ve worked with her previously and I love her.

Viki Irvin of She is the brand for Superwoman LifeStyle and a genius.

Grant Leboff Author of Sales Therapy. This is the first book on sales that I ever read that helped me to believe that I could sell the way I felt more comfortable, so I want to work with Grant one-on-one. How?

I am working a job and for the first time in my life I am going into the new year with clarity and a sense of purpose that I will make the best invest there is to make – an INVESTMENT IN MYSELF – by paying each of these fabulous individuals for their expertise in helping me become who I want to be – a successful business owner with clarity, purpose, vision and passion. These individuals are all going to help me get there and I can’t wait to continue on my journey in 2012. I hope you join me and share your comments, feedback and stories – they are all welcome and I wish you and your family Abundance, Prosperity Happiness, Love, Good Health and A Lot of Laughter going into 2012.

Peace & Bliss From My Family To Yours,

Real Estate Newbies – Do You Plan for For Groceries but Not Your Future?

I have been on my personal journey since 2002 and I have learned alot. Alot meaning that I have learned that we are our own worse enemy, our circle of influence can and in some cases, will determine our success or failure, you have to want it badly enough in order for you to stay on the path to success when it gets difficult and challenging because it will get difficult and challenging and your why has to be strong enough to get you through those times or you will never reach that goal or see your dream finally come to fruition.

I was at the supermarket the other day with my girlfriend. Actually we had gone to Sam’s Club which I knew was a discount bulk warehouse type of shopping experience but I had never actually shopped there before. I had gone with another friend of mine but never actually shopped there for myself. Well, let me tell you I’m used to the regular supermarket – Pathmark or Shoprite. I was completely overwhelmed when I actually started to walk around and look for eggs, butter and bread you know the staples and pick up one of them. I realized I had to get bulk of everything. Now, I’m not dumb I know what bulk discount shopping means but since I had never actually done it myself I was completely overwhelmed. But once I got myself together I was ok. While I was there I also noticed something else. Since I have an entrepreneurial mindset, I am always thinking about my goals and dreams, etc. Don’t get me wrong I do turn it off sometimes as we all should but my mind is always going in one direction or another. While I was at Sam’s Club, I was looking at how the other customers were shopping – very strategically and I thought “WOW” people seem to shop and plan more strategically for food than we do with our own individual plans for our lives, goals and dreams.

We all seem to react to life – that Fight or Flight – syndrome. We haave to pay our bills (which we most certainly do) but we also have to plan for our goals. Robert Kiyosaki said it best when he said, “It’s what you do in your spare time that will determine your success or failure”. Well he actually said …”that will make you rich”. However, if that is not your desire the message is still the same. Alot of time when people see the word “rich”, it puts them in another mindset and they respond completely different. I just want to get the point across that if you have a desire to reach your dreams or goals, keep your day job and pay your bills and take care of your family but never give up. I truly believe that we are not here to struggle. We are here to discover our individual gifts, share them with the world, show others that they can do the same.

Which immediately brings to mind:

Our Deepest Fear

Our Deepest Fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are Powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, who am I to be Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, and Fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of G-d. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We are born to manifest the Glory of G-d that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in Everyone. And as we Let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically Liberates Others.

Be Grateful Be Joyous Be Abundant
