    Minneapolis (and spreading) Riots, Civil Unrest

    HOT! 
    i live in Minneapolis. The protestors aren’t causing the issues. We have been infiltrated by anarchists (mostly white) using the protests as cover for their mayhem. They’ve burned down almost an entire neighborhood.

    Grant Cardone = Bankrupt (Dumb PR Stunt)

    HOT! 
    A few years ago when I was running acquisitions for a large apartment fund I used to compete with Grant for certain properties. He won every time. Brokers used to call me once the deal was awarded and say, "Well, Grant offered 15% more than you did so we gave him the deal." Was never...

    The road to wealth is simple: Drive a crappy car

    INVESTING HOT! 
    One of my favorite topics. I drive a 2008 Toyota Prius that has 120k miles on it. Paid $19k cash for it in early 2009 after buying it "like new" from someone who needed to unload in a fire sale. Was worth $30k when I bought for $19k. Car seats in the back for both my kids. Rear bumper...

    Apartment Investing

    REAL ESTATE 
    Steve, Not sure if you remember me, but we used to correspond several years ago on this site. Haven't been on this site in a while but saw this thread and wanted to say hello. I'm currently living in Minnesota and working in apartment acquisitions for a large local investor. We've acquired...

    How to do market research / test idea if no established market?

    IDEA 
    In MJ's book, one of his points is if you are annoyed by something / wish something existed / wished it was easier, most likely other people do too. I wish there were energy efficient, green homes available in any price range. In my city, most are $750k+ and only available to those who can...

    Thoughts on Marriage/Kids and the Fastlane dream

    OFF-TOPIC 
    They are definitely not mutually exclusive, but I will give you a personal example. (As a happily married man) I cannot buy a fixer upper in a crappy part of town and live in it for 24 months while rehabbing it because my wife, while very understanding and supportive of my dreams, has...

    Demographics blew me away

    I've been thinking for a while about the changing demographics in the US and then was sitting at a meeting yesterday when some demographic numbers were mentioned. One was that the number of people living in my state over 65 years old is 677,270 as of 2010. That number is expected to grow to...

    Has anyone taken an online real estate course to get a license?

    REAL ESTATE 
    I got my California real estate license by taking classes over the internet. I got my Minnesota real estate license by taking 60 hours of classroom at Kaplan. It makes no difference at all, with the exception of having a live teacher to ask questions of in the classroom. Plus, its harder to...

    how to start online counseling business

    PEOPLE 
    I would think about keeping your concept connected to "helping someone do ____ " and producing videos, printed material, etc that can be distributed and thus turned fastlane w/proper execution. You can't do "therapy" over the internet or any fastlane way (for the most part), as one of the...

    GREAT videos

    Some of the best I've ever seen. He doesn't agree with scaling, but Vaynerchuck video alone is worth the price of admission. (Which is free btw) The 7 Keynote MBA: How to Save 2 Years and $100,000
