Back from Hiatus

Hi Everyone!

I'm back from hiatus (yes, finally!).

The few weeks I took from the blog turned into a few months. I really had to take some quality time off from the blog and writing. It allowed me a chance to think and reflect upon life and where I wanted to go and where I wanted to be in the future.

And, just taking some time to reflect made me really value the concept of time over money. This is exactly what Lonnie promotes with the mobile home business - it allows you to take the time you need to pursue the things you want to pursue.

All the money in the world cannot substitute the valuable asset of time - it's something you really can't get back nor something you cannot buy.

Right now with the economy down, there are many opportunities out there. And, not just in the real estate business. Though with opportunities, there lies greed. And, it is this greed that can really corrupt and take people over. I've seen firsthand what greed can do - it really can overrun lives.

Greed is one of the most powerful emotions. Fear is the other. There are many people out there presenting opportunities based on both emotions especially greed. Hearing the words, "You can make money fast this way," "We can teach you to become rich fast with this opportunity," or "You can't let this opportunity pass you by," really feeds on these two emotions.

What I've learned from Lonnie and his books (By the way, I just saw Lonnie a few months ago - he's doing great!), is that you really have to take control of your own destiny and put work into whatever you decide you want to do. And this work is hard work. There is no fast way to financial freedom. Period.

In order to be successful, it takes time and having the persistence to keep going. It took me 8 months to find my first mobile home deal. Can you believe that? Most people would just give up. But, it's having the passion and believing in what you do that keeps you going. And, nothing can substitute passion.

On that note, I want to thank everyone for their continued support with the blog. Taking a break from the blog and writing, really gave me a chance to reflect and think about my future. For those who have sent me messages, I will be getting back to them shortly.

As a special treat, I've put together a video preview on what's to come. Enjoy!

Happy investing!

Thanks for the welcome back, Shae! I know, I'm really behind here on the blog - been away from the online world for awhile. Lately, I've been getting another one ready to put on the market, been kind of time intensive. But, almost there! I have to go check out what you and Steph have been up to as well, will definitely make my way there for a visit!

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. By the way, thanks for sending some of your peeps my way, some have contacted me. Appreciate your continued support!
