It’s the end of another long night. It’s actually 4:18am right now and I’m just now wrapping up my Monday. I kind of had to redeem myself from earlier today because I spent nearly the ‘entire’ day stuck on a technical issue with one of my websites. Thus, the reason I don’t have a passion for anything IT (Information Technology). Things are beautiful when they work…but when they don’t, I feel like breaking stuff! But, the good news is that I got it taken care of. Instead of going the manual route, I had to break-down and buy a plugin to do all of the dirty work for me. That’s what I get for being cheap, I guess. But enough about technical stuff for now.
I’ve been thinking all day today (in between curse words spewed at my computer screen) about how to take this blog to the next level. To be honest, I’m starting to get bored with it. And I think, if I was a reader, I’d be a bit bored of reading it too. I’ve been keeping this journal for just over 2 years. And it’s time to kick things up a notch to make it more enticing to read and as important, more enticing for me to want to contribute.
So this is what I’ve thought of so far. I’m going to become (approx) 100% open-source. “Open-Source” is a geek term that basically means that nothing is private. In the IT world, it means you have access to the code behind the app. You can see behind the curtain. Look up the dress. You get what I’m saying (random fun fact #2432 = I used to look-up the dresses of mannequins when at department stores when I was a kid. No lie. What a little perv…But anyway).
I’ve decided that I’m going to create a page on this blog that will display all-irons that I have in the fire, at any given time, and the status of each. I’ve yet to determine how this is going to update dynamically (real-time updates). But I know it’s possible. I think with this approach, not only will I be offering very exclusive intel, that I haven’t seen on another blog. But the posts that I make regarding Craigslist, screen-scrapers, and etc. will all make more sense once you see how I’m implementing them. Or how my VA’s are implementing them.
So here’s a glimpse of the categories that will be reflected on my “real-time” update page:
- Lease Option Wholesaling
- Short Sale Negotiating and Wholesaling
- Tax Lien Certificate Investing
- Private Money Acquisition
- Outsourcing (Virtual Assistants)
- Tax Planning
- Asset Protection
- Internet Marketing (Making $ online)
- Marketing online/offline for Real Estate
What you see above is pretty much it in a nutshell. Some of those categories may surprise you. Such as I’m not an Attorney, Accountant, etc. However, I consult with them periodically and next time I’m going to get the rights to record the calls so I can post here.
I’m also going to start a Question & Answer arrangement, where you can submit any question you’d like and I will do my best to answer it. And if I can’t answer it myself, I’ve got a ton of people to consult with who definitely know the answers.
I might even start broadcasting on Ustream.com, the possibilities are endless. So, that’s all I have for now. If you’d be so kind, please kick me back some thoughts of what you’d like to see more of. I’d appreciate it.
– Peace Out
