The severing of a marriage is very much like the closing down of a business. Even the contemplation of it requires planning, negotiation and strategy. Before getting to the “I want a divorce”, there are financial issues that must be addressed and handled.
Bring extreme clarity to your targets… and break them down into smaller pieces. Action requires clarity. Why? Well, think about it. How will you know what actions to take and when… if you are 100% clear on exactly what you are looking for? You won’t. So, clarify your targets down to the detail. For instance, one of my targets was to make 0,000 by January 1st by increasing my positive cashflow in bestbuyrealtyandmortgage.com and launching at least 1 new website.
And it doesn’t matter whether these CEOs are any good at their jobs. We have seen CEOs getting golden parachutes of millions of dollars for running their companies into the ground, including those involved in the sub prime debacle.
What I found out about taking action later on really has very little to do with writing down all of your worldly goals, dreams, and hopes… and thinking about them.

After these experts started criticizing certain internet stocks with extremely high P/E ratios, we saw the stocks for these companies fall enormously. In turn some of these companies were forced to go out of business, signaling a not so good future for similar companies. The bubble didn’t really burst. The market didn’t just collapse all at once, but it was a gradual process which took months. This is the business cycle in a micro economical sense. The sub market (internet technology) began to fall on a steeper then normal slope. People who had made literally millions in the stock market were now in the negative.
Be sure the home is in a community and neighborhood you desire. One great tip is to visit neighborhoods several times before you buy to check out schools, noise and traffic patterns.
After you’ve purchased the property, it’s time to get to work. Make sure each day is full, cleaning and fixing up the home. You’ll want to have all the tools and materials at hand and even your lunch/dinner nearby. If you have to do a quick run for certain things, you lower the productivity level and progress made for the day. With proper planning, you’ll avoid these pricey delays and have a real estate house flipping story worth sharing to the world.
