My Writings are Based on the following: In my business career, I have started several successful businesses, in the real estate, hospitality, environmental, educational and retail sectors. My clients have been made up of individual consumers, small business and ironically, Fortune 500 clients, as that is also who I have competed against.
In my real estate career, I have bought foreclosures, short sales and single family houses, by the dozens. I have done fix and flips, and bought properties directly from banks and other financial institutions. I have bought multi-family units by the hundreds. I have bought office buildings, a retail center, designed and created a successful restaurant, and have done several design and construction projects in the residential and commercial markets.
I have negotiated with some of the richest men on the planet. My largest deal was $14,000,000 and my smallest deal was $9,000. I once bought a deal for $3,150,000 and in 18 months turned it into $5,600,000. (I have done several deals like that). I have have had a line of credit approved over the phone for $1,700,000 in 45 minutes(and started to use the money the next day)! I have also had Donald Trump state in the New York Post that I was a real estate expert that you must meet! I have developed innovative investing techniques and systems that have perplexed the most savvy investors, leaving them saying “why didn’t I think of that?”
I have also however, had my fair share of challenges and failures in my business and real estate career. It’s in those failures, that my writings guide the entrepreneur through a journey that provides safe harbor for their adventure.
