real estate: The Guts to Decide - 04/14/08 12:16 AM
The Guts to Decide By David Oswald I do some of my best writing at odd hours of the day or night. Sometimes I write these articles when I can't sleep at 1:00 am and sometimes I have to actually plan to write them so that they get done. In my particular case, writing is one of those things that sometimes comes very easily but at other times, I have to almost force myself to get started. Once I get into the first few lines, I usually find my groove and knock out the entire article in one session. But isn't that how (0 comments)

real estate: Communication is the Key - 03/20/08 12:14 AM
By David Oswald When someone asks me what I do for a living, I simply say that I am a communicator. I communicate through a variety of different means including the telephone with homeowners, through face to face conversations with students in my mentorship program, through conversations in a group setting at my seminars and even to all of you through the written word - my blogs and articles being an example of this. Yes, I am in the business of real estate as an investor and also in the business of marketing myself and my properties but more importantly, I am (2 comments)

real estate: Watch Your Language! - 02/04/08 09:12 PM
Watch Your Language! By David "The Diamond" Oswald "Watch your language!" That's what your parents might have told you growing up. The Diamond is telling you that right now. I got three separate phone calls in the past 24 hours, all of which started out with the following opening, "Hey Dave, I got a problem" or "Hey, we got a problem" and each time the person on the other end of the phone seemed dejected like their goldfish just died or something. I guess I must be considered to be a problem solver or a "transaction engineer" of some corny phrase like that (6 comments)

real estate: Think Big or Don’t Think at All - 01/12/08 12:52 AM
I recently got back from a four day seminar in Orlando, FL that was held by Marshall Sylver, who is a renowned public speaker and motivator. He is also someone who is constantly pushing himself to take the next step, whether in his business or personal life. I've been around some great salespeople during my life but Marshall is by far the best salesperson I've ever met. He is the type of guy who will have people getting out of their seats to purchase whatever product he is selling even before the presentation is over. Marshall has made many millions during his (2 comments)
real estate: The Key to Priority Management - 01/04/08 07:50 PM
"If you want something done, give it to a busy person." - Unknown Wealthy people make decisions quickly. The concept of time management is a myth. You cannot manage time, you can only manage the order in which things get done. So many people tell me that they don't have the time to get the things done in their life that need to get done. We all have fires that come up during the course of the day. We all have distractions and things that suddenly need our attention. However, there is a system that will allow you the ability to complete those (4 comments)
real estate: Television is a Thief - 12/30/07 01:47 PM
"Cause Life is So Brief and Time is a Thief" - Rod Stewart from the song, "Young Turks" I had the great fortune of deciding to no longer watch television about two years ago. I was going through a time in my life where I was taking a very deep look at what it would take for me to go to a higher level both mentally and spiritually. In the past, I was always the type of person who would like to finish off a long day by watching a couple of hours or so of television. Sometimes I would watch informative (3 comments)
real estate: The Magic of a Mentor - 12/21/07 12:52 AM
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." I was thinking about the importance of a having a mentor in anything that I've ever done during the course of my life. Anytime that I've taken a step into some area where I was unfamiliar whether it was learning a new sport, learning some new aspect of real estate or completing my first ebook, a mentor was always the difference. I did a tally the other day on how much I've spent on my real estate education during the past 5 years and it came to just over $87,000. Much of that (7 comments)
real estate: Feel the Fear...and Like It! - 12/14/07 11:34 PM
I just got back a couple of weeks ago from Las Vegas where I attended a seminar with motivational speaker Marshall Sylver called The Next Level and while reflecting on what I did during that five day period I would have to agree that the title of the event is appropriate. During one of the days, I spent about 8 hours at a ropes course doing a variety of challenges that normally would not have been of interest to me. Not because I don't enjoy new things but I am not always interested in seeking out thrills. In fact, had I (4 comments)
