    $70,490.35 In January

    I'm really hoping this doesn't come across too salesy, but here goes anyway. Had my best month ever : I've been running my real estate company, laundromats and now documenting the whole process on youtube. Revenue was 60:40 in favor of my brick & mortar stuff, but youtube is exploding. It's...

    From being evicted to owning 93 rentals, my life story!

    HOT TOPIC I bought another laundromat

    Absolutely doing B2B and B2C aspects for drop-off as well as looking at utilizing uber/lyft to do all the heavy lifting and collect laundry from various locations for us. Also looking at locker drop-offs at the local college campus that we can empty and off-site wash/dry/fold as well.

    HOT TOPIC I bought another laundromat

    Between nothing and a few million - It's too hard to get a solid answer because it depends on new development vs existing, what size you need, equipment ,etc. Yeah, too many people here are cash-only, had people come by and BEG me to to not go to cards because one of the few options in town...

    Today I learned that the former owner(s) never, ever, ever cleaned their coin mechanisms out. Spent roughly a hour with a coat hanger fishing quarters out of the mechanisms. Made right about $94. I asked my friend who owns about 100 rentals how much he'd want to make fishing quarters out of...

    Once it's all said and done 1-2 hour a week. My goal is to make it as efficient/automated as possible, outsource all the low level work to a employee (Tasked with maintaining/running 3-5 laundromats) and then look at further scalability.

    HOT TOPIC I bought another laundromat

    It's kind of a complicated story - Guy died about a year ago, his mom took over the laundromat and knew almost nothing about it. I made her an offer of $50k a year-ish ago. She went with the most established investor in town who owns dozens of million dollar properties. He couldn't deal with it...

    I'm pretty excited about teardown on the machines from the 50s & 70s. I'm big into old coins and I hear that these kinds of machines are usually full of lost quarters. You're the 2nd or 3rd person to make mention of that.

    HOT TOPIC I bought another laundromat

    Everything I do I try to automate it. So what I'm doing here is learning to do a lot of the low-level work myself and then training somebody while I learn it how they can do it as well. So as far as all of the minimal labor stuff somebody else can do. I likely will have somebody empty the change...

    My goal with this one is to do a lot of content specifically regards to buying underutilized property and using the internet and decent marketing techniques to significantly boost your business. This place was making 9 to $10,000 before the last owner died. The last owner did no marketing...
