Probate Monday: When Times Are Slow

Scott Costello All 6 Comments

I apologize for the lack of any real updates on how my probate investing has been going.  I’ve continued to send out my mailers and have been getting calls, but non have been motivated or really willing to sell at this time.  Instead of writing the same old thing every week about sending out mailers and talking about non motivated callers I’ve been trying to break down every single aspect of what I’ve been going through (talking with callers, keeping …

30DC – Day 15 – Check This Tool Out!

Scott Costello All, Blog, Internet Marketing 10 Comments

Half way home!  Day 15 was very exciting and it’s definitely going to make life easier for updating twitter, facebook and your blogs.  I’ve tested out a few tools that would combine all of those social networking sites but I always went back to using the individual pages to do my posting and reading.   Even though I still haven’t found a tool I like to read all the posts, tweets and facebook comments (i currently just use my iPhone) , …

Finding it hard to find time

I first want to thank Jerry Dalglish for writing a great guest article about Staying Focused.  It really pinpoints what the key is to being successful in this business.   Here is a preview… When you are focused you are productive.  When you are productive you tend to get things done.  That may sound kind of trite, but I mean it seriously.  For what seemed like an eternity I struggled with a lack of specific focus other than the idea …
