  1. Bankroll Management - What are your strategies for saving cash?

    Here is something I did to get my "bankroll" started. It is kind of backwards to what you all are talking about. I set a certain amount that I felt I needed to start my business and then I set an amount aside every week towards it FIRST! My business became my primary focus and I just got in the...
  2. WTF, didn't I write about this?

    No one should be surprised by this. Hey these guys ar smart. They know there is a large segment of people out there looking for the EASY, magic answer to becoming wealthy. They (Trump, RDPD, Armondo) know if they put their name on it people will flock to and pay big money just for a glimpse of...
  3. Just Take ACTION!

    Let me add one thing for all of you starting out on this journey that I didnt mention in my original post. Much like MJ and others here, people said I was crazy when I bought my first property. A broken done old downtown building noone else wanted. I heard it all, "your crazy". "wow that place...
  4. Just Take ACTION!

    well it is obvious I dont spend any time here because I am not really sure what Thrifty's point is.
  5. Just Take ACTION!

    Let me start by saying that I havent been on this forum for 2 years. The reason I havent been here for a couple years is because I have been busy. Busier than I have ever been in my life. Busy making more money and increasing my net worth more than I ever have in my life. Now my story isnt MJ's...
  6. The Life of a Prostitute

    Okay I have to admit that when I first read this post it took me back to a time in my life when I did work in a factory. And I will admit that in some ways I can kind of relate to what Lights is saying, in some ways she is way off course. I can remember having a college degree and due to not...

    Trouble for what? it isnt illegal to have an offshore bank account.

    In case anyone else is thinking the same thing. Offshore bank account - AskMen
  10. WEB/DIGITAL FBI Seizes Fulltiltpoker.com, pokerstars.com, etc

    From what i understand Americans can still play on pokerstars, they just cant deposti and withdrawal money. To me this is a great opportunity for someone overseas to start a business. You can still transfer money from player to player on pokerstars. If I lived overseas I would either help people...
  11. 20 minute investment, So worth it

    I came across this video while looking for some mental stimulation for my site. I found a lot of really great stuff in it, so I thought I would share. Self belief, overcoming adversity, being yourself. Worth 20 minutes of your time.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyBk55G7Keo
  12. RK's first lesson in social media?

    I find it so ironic that RK was a shooting star in the "self help" area on his way to being a superstar when all that went down with Russ and the gang. I have to admit RDPD changed my life and I bought everything RK put out and lived on his forum until that all went down. When all that happened...
  13. Al Swearengen on misfortune

    Here is a clip from one of my favorite shows of all time. Great message for overcoming adversity. caution some rough language here. YouTube - Deadwood: Al's Take On Misfortune
  14. College Degree: Business, Nursing, or something un-related?

    I would vote for a business degree and then get a part time job tending bar. You would see the bar business first hand and get your formal education. Frankly this is a pretty time tested process, many people work their way thru college this way
  15. Fallout: When States go bankrupt...

    Unfortunately I think California will be the litmus test on this. I say unfortunately because their economy is one of the largest in the world. My opinion is that federal govt will step in and bail them out, out of necessity. I think this will set off some major issues in the USA over state...
  16. A "Forever Recession"?

    Exactly my point, you cant. Survival is the ultimate motivator, "get busy livin or get busy dyin" or major discomfort. When working becomes more comfortable than not working, people will be motivated to work.
  17. A "Forever Recession"?

    I am not necesarily saying that all programs should just be eliminated. I am saying that someone who is able bodied shouldnt just receive assistance without being required to give something in exchange for that assistance. I believe in giving value for getting value. My belief is that we rob...
  18. A "Forever Recession"?

    This hopefully doesnt cross the line but if it does, mods please delete. While I agree with GW in that a governmental policy change is in order, but there needs to be more than that. You will never motivate people to go to work while they are compensated for not working. When public assistance...
  19. How to Marry a Millionaire (but he's not rich yet...)

    Russ, this made me laugh. I feel like you and I are on the same side of the fence on this one. Not that we are endorsing or agreeing with anything MPM was saying but just that we both noted some hypocrisy going on. What is funny about your statement is that I know you are from MI and I am from...
