Brain Dump, LLC and internet marketing

Scott Costello All, Blog 10 Comments

Lately I’ve been thinking about creating an LLC so I can write off some of my business expenses so far.  I haven’t been making any money, only spending it it seems.  It’s not a lot of money but it would be nice to be able to deduct it at the end of the year.   Things I spend money are marketing with postcards driving around looking at houses educational material website tools (hosting, domain names and templates) Those are my main …

Slow weekend in terms of REI. I got nothing done and I blame that on not setting my goals for last week. It’s really amazing how well writing them down works. It’s like I hit a peak with making that offer and now I’m taking a breather. That’s not gonna work, I have to keep the momentum going or risk falling backwards. Tonight I’m going to rework my short term plan and get back in the swing of things. My …

I’ve thought about …

Secret Way to Set Goals

Like most people I thought I understood how to set goals.  I would say “by this time next year I want to have wholesaled 5 properties.”  Well 1 year later I would have failed miserably or even abandoned all hope many months before.  The reason for failure?  It was the lack of short term goals and weekly action items.  Let me explain a little further… With out a plan it is very difficult to achieve a goal.  My failure to …
