    Take Your Time

    Take time to think about exactly what you want. A vacation home is no small investment. It is important to take the time and effort into deciding what you really want and what you can afford. Location is key, especially when it comes to your vacation getaway. Consider the location, imagine yourself returning there at your leisure. When you settle on a location, decide the style home you will need whether its for big family gathering or a quiet getaway.

     

    Consider All Costs

    Personal Development Is Key To Building Your Business

    You can not just learn about your industry, take a couple of training courses then run a successful business. A lot of people get trapped only focusing on there day to day operations then they are confused about why they are not reaching their goals.

    The problem

    Focusing on your day to day operations is very important but focusing on your personal development is equally as important (maybe a little more important.) I'm going to tell you this in simple terms ... if you are not growing yourself you will not be able to grow your business. You are your business so you need to grow both together.

    New Things

    The world is changing rapidly. There are always new techniques, new strategies, and new ways of thinking. You need to be constantly keeping up with these new developments, strategies, and trends to stay ahead of your competition. If you are not keeping up with these things then someone else will and the results will show in their favor. I'm sure the last thing you want is to see your competition beating you just because they put in the extra effort to grow themselves. 

    Now you might be asking ... What can I do to increase my personal development?

    Mentor

    If you are having trouble you can seek out a mentor. A mentor is somebody that is already good at what you are trying to do and has a proven track record. So look for people who are successful in...

    How We Improved Productivity In The Office

    Productivity in the office is extremely important for your real estate investing business, and every other business. We noticed that for us there was something missing. A lot of tasks got forgotten or were taking longer to do and it was lowering our productivity. It is always essential to be increasing your productivity. 

    Every Solution Leads To A New Problem

    We knew we had the solution; we needed an assistant. But Assistants can be expensive because you have to pay them a salary, and there isn't always something for them to do so it didn't make much sense to go this route.

    The next solution was to hire a virtual assistant. But virtual assistants are not good for office use. They are better for marketing and tasks that can be done behind the scene. This is because they are working remotely so they are not much help for office help unless you have them on video chat all the time. But that just isn't realistic, there called VA's for a reason.

    So we needed to find an in-office assistant for cheap, that can always be there. This seemed impossible until we found the AMAZON ECHO SHOW.

    What is it?

    The Echo Show is an incredible piece of technology. It is the upgraded version of the AMAZON ECHO which is a little device that you can ask questions to, set reminders,...
