What the hell is going on the market>?No one is coming in the office> I just really have to make sure to make my self the next billionaire in the tough real estate market. I have to be more creative, and have to expose my self in the world. The growth has got to be phenomenom: I have to practice "guerilla marketing tactic". There is no way to have the positioning in the market that I have to "Micro-Man~age" my business. It is a start-up with the intense desire to be exposed in the cut-throat business~ with no rate control for (4 comments)

foreclosure~ where is uncle sam. - 11/26/06 06:31 AM
Foreclosure has been steadily going up, the economy is uncertain, with Bernanke still guessing what to do the with the short term rate. Who are we to blame for this biggest real estate appreciation of the history, closing with a bust! Is that the irrational exuberance of the peoplewho invested their money. Seeking financial boost for the nest egg. A lot of questions would be lingering within the coming months.Help would not really come from uncle bernanke, nor the government would take any steps to curb the number of foreclosures in the market. With the war still at peaks, and recession (1 comments)

To be in the top you need to have a good business strategy. You have to attack, and check the balance every time in order for you to suceed in the business. Starting alone is really dificult and fun. You are doing a one man show! As you intend to grow, you would not have enought time with your works. The stategy changes from there.

built-to-last - 11/26/06 04:37 AM
Build-to-last I was wondering the other day, how all the company in the fortune 500 started. They have started some where. It has always been my fascination to be a business maverick. I call it the most important "feat for me". I have always dreamed big about myself.As every big company has it, they have to build a character in order for them to leap from the average, or mediocre. It is more of practical, and the transition has to be really fast. You have to let your colleagues, and subordinated adopt really fast, in order for them to sucked in this (1 comments)
getting out ~ and let them know who you are ....... - 11/25/06 08:15 AM
Getting Out of the Commodity Business What you sell should be re-packaged and re-invented to differentiate it from competitive products and make apples-to-apples comparisons difficult or impossible. The worst thing a business can do is be just like everyone else. And the worst reason your customer can have for buying your product is that it's the cheapest. Live by cheapest price, die by cheapest price. There are many, many product categories that are commodity items. My definition of a commodity is something that can basically be bought and sold by the pound from a half dozen or more companies. The (1 comments)
positioning: the battle for your mind in "real estate" - 11/23/06 07:11 AM
Better POSITIONING became a roaring success, the buzword of marketing and advertising in the world of business. Positioning starts with a product. A piece of merchandise, service, a compnay, an institution, or even a person. Positioning is what you do to the mind of the prospect. That is, you position the product in the mind of prospect. "how do you differentiate yourself in the mind of your prospect." That comes out to my mind as a "return to reality." To be sucessful today in the cut throat business, you must touch base with reality. And the reality that really counts is what's (2 comments)
hard money ~ are we shark, A bIg MiScOnCePtIoN - 11/20/06 06:21 AM
I have been battling with realtor(s) for the past four (4) years, for the rates, and strustures of loan in the financing circle. Foreclosure's now coming in a big way, so is hard money coming every out. The same realtors I have been dealing for the past four to five years have been facing a problem with the "hard money" interest rates. For those realtors who have made "ka-ching" during the boom time, has been having a problem considering the rates from the hard money. They have to realize they can not sell this notes in the secondary market at all. It (3 comments)
