In the beginning I worried would I be able to keep it going? Would I be able to find 29 Gifts to give? How would they be received?

Today, my gift (5 comments)

On Day 28 my gift is to my colleagues in the Real Estate Game. I give to you a fabulous article on Getting Rich by Buying in a Down Market - by Walter Stanford . . .

Buyers, as you search unlisted inventories for their purchase, produce sellers. However, the best leverage point of (6 comments)

Day 27 of 29 Days of Gifts was hectic and fun. Another offer and 2 new leads. I love this business! My Mother in Law has Alzheimer's and is in care in Northern Ireland.

I felt like blowing my stack and did not. (7 comments)
