Recently a friend asked me for book recommendations concerning investing.
This of course prompted my thinking about investing & real estate in particular, my favorite.
I thought it would be fun to run through some actual numbers & discuss the benefits to real estate investing, that other investments simply do not have.
So here is that run-through, in webinar-type format.
It covers some general thoughts, the down-sides to stocks & mutual funds, the benefits to real estate, and closes with looking at real numbers on two actual deals that I’ve done.
I hope it’s helpful, or in the very least entertaining.
I would love to hear your thoughts, questions, problems, or personal investment philosophies.
I intend to truly think through, and articulate (to the best of my ability) what I mean when I say that I am a Christian.
Here’s the truth: I almost cringe to even use the term sometimes…Christian.

And I’m not completely sure why that is, although I have a strong hunch.
I recently stumbled across the following question that has maybe changed my life.
It has certainly increased my output.
This will be a rant, and for that I apologize.
I’m sitting on a plane thinking about whether I should even write this or not.

At least I hope it doesn’t flat-line anytime soon.
I’m going to process out loud here a bit and list out some things I’ve been learning lately.
Last week we raised the question ‘how should Christians conduct Business in Culture’.
While I’m not exactly sure what the answer to that is, I know one thing that does not set us apart by itself:
This subject has me thinking when I should be sleeping, and that never happens.
What affect should my faith have in my business dealings in the culture I find myself in?
There is an incorrect stereotype out there about what it takes to be a successful business person.
A while ago we were having a conversation with some friends and one of them…
The difference between what is possible and what is actual.
Referrals are truly what make the world go around.
Not google, not the yellow pages, not newspaper ads.
