Progress in Action-Our Coach Beverlee Rasmussen
We have had the pleasure of working with Beverlee Rasmussen as our business coach this month. We have been totally spoiled as she is also a great Chef.
We enjoyed a delicious salmon dinner before we were off to our regularly scheduled BANG event.
With Beverlee's help, we have been moving forward with our WestCoast Business project. We reviewed things to pursue to establish us in our community, as well as get us known in Kamloops. As a result, we got the information together on how we can get into the Kamloops Home Show next month. We discussed how close we are for our online shopping cart to be in use, so we have been focusing closely on that. I have been off two days per week, so I have decided to study more real estate as well.
I sure do like to keep busy. But in addition, I really love working with Beverly.
Basecamp is very simple and easy to use project management software.
It keeps us in touch and on track with our goals. In addition, it provides tools to help us communicate and track our progress quickly and relatively easily. It truly is a great resource for you. (Click on the graphic to read about the founder.
Making Offers on Property
This month we learned before taking a contract to a lawyer, ask your mentor first. Their experience with making a lot of offers makes them an expert in that field. Your lawyer may not be a real estate investor themselves.
To be happy with your contracts, we have discovered that the Protection and Subject clauses are key to consistent success. Another thing that is paramount, don't make your contracts too long. Gone are the days of seventeen page contracts. They are impossible to read and are really not necessary if you have all the angels covered. This is yet another reason that a mentor is critical to your success, along with being coach able and learning from people who are more successful than yourself. You have to get out there and network. Our mentor has taught us our "Network" equals your "Net Worth".
Next month... Our Sanoviv trip, the Home Show, Halloween, my Neice's birthday in Calgary which is why I will miss my 25 year high school reunion. They are much more important!
So until next month!!! Many smiles your way, Al & Shelley
