Drinking from a firehose isn’t always the best way to learn

drink-out-of-a-hose[1]So lately I have been reading a ton of blog posts on biggerpockets.com and listening to just as many podcasts and webinars. It is overwhelming.

I have been learning about buy and hold, multi family housing, buying notes, wholesaling, crowdfunding properties, etc. etc. etc.

Well wouldn’t you know it, I have a chance to meet someone who knows his stuff and potentially grow my counsel of wise elders and of course I screw it up.   Continue reading

REI Goals, Mission, Vision

So I thought it would be appropriate to start my REI adventure with some form of Mission, Vision and Goals.  Not because everyone says you should have these for a business, but because I think it will help keep me focused and on track. There is a lot to be said for goals but even more, there is more to be said for WHY you do what you do. Do you agree? Continue reading

REI Day One – I think

So I decided to do these posts about three weeks after I actually started really trying to learn about REI. What this means is that these first posts will be from memory and may be a little sketchy or get edited as I remember other things. I will continue to make current posts from this point forward however.

I left off on REI Pre Day One with having gone to a local ‘guru’ seminar and deciding not to pay for the three day workshop. So what was next?   Continue reading

REI PRE Day One

I have decided to keep a blog to keep a log. So lets’s start with what I will consider PRE Day One.

So I got intrigued by a radio ad for a local Connecticut Guru’s two hour free seminar this last week and decided to go.  It was in Worcester and I was working in Fitchburg so I said ” Hey it’s only half an hour away and I would like to go.” I did. Continue reading

Phil Wickham “Children of God” CD Review

Phil Wickham Children of God CD ReviewThank you #FlyBy Promotions for sending me the new Phil Wickham #ChildrenofGod CD. I did enjoy the CD and so did my kids. I am finding that CDs are going the way of the 8 track in my house these days so it was a little more difficult than usual to review this one. Anyway I am going to cheat a little and do a song by song commentary from my teenage boys…

The League and The Lantern – A Book Review

Ok, So it is the week for book reviews.  I just finished up the ESV Family Devotional Bible and now am working on The League and The Lantern. Thank you Flyby Promotions for my free review copy.

The book is written for the middle school crowd and I would say it is appropriately written. As an adult I am often drawn to sci-fi and fiction writing, well, just because I am am.  I enjoy it.  This book reminded me of a cross between Artemis Fowl and the old show Man from U.N.C.L.E.

ESV Family Devotional Bible – A Review

ESV Family Devotional BibleRecently I received the ESV Family Devotional Bible to review.  The short sweet – It’s pretty neat!

It has 130 Topical Devotions averaging about two pages each. It has the usual fun colorful maps in the back for you and your kids. They range from The Land of Israel in the New Testament to Places Paul Visited to the Kingdom of Saul, David and Solomon and more. Continue reading
