Who’s Commenting? A Thank You

Scott CostelloAll, Blog 15 Comments

One of the most exciting parts of blogging, for myself at least, is when I get a notification that someone took the time to post a comment to one of my posts.  I love getting asked questions as well as getting words of encouragement that help me push myself.  What makes a great blog is not only the blogger but the people who come and leave their personality and knowledge behind by posting comments.  To me the measuring stick of …

Scott CostelloAll, Blog, Probate Investing 4 Comments

Well not really.  I have been asked though to be a part of the creation process of a book about developing an internet business while working a 9 to 5 job.  I will be one of 5 to 6 people who will work through the process of developing that internet business.  The experience of the participants will act as case studies for the book. This is something of great interest to me and I would have bought the book even …

Has Fear Snuck Up On You?

Scott CostelloAll, Blog, Probate Investing 12 Comments

I never even realized it.  I’ve sent out letters before, even gotten calls.  There was no way I was afraid.  It’s been two weeks since I wrote about sending the probate letters to my lead list and I had yet to do it.  Why?  To me it seemed like I had good reasons… Needed to put up crown molding in the office Thanksgiving Family Didn’t have the envelopes Didn’t have stamps Dentist appointment These are valid reasons right?  I was …

Scott CostelloAll, Blog, Probate Investing 14 Comments

Since this is a short week thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday, I figured it would be the logical spot to review what we have done so far.  I will also give everyone a great tip I got from Nick Johnson.

Recap of my Networking this week… …
