Contractor Horror stories, We’ll MasterMind a Problem, local Market Update, Do your Own Tenant Checks & AG’s Office!

1. We’re looking for the Best (actually Worst) Contractor Horror Story that’s happened to You. Members vote and there’s a Prize for the most unfortunate tale you’ve experienced.

2. There seems to be a fair number of Deals or Opportunities that some of our Members are missing out on.


We’ve started a MasterMind Group to address the Problem:

  • How do you easily find these Opportunities?
  • Don’t be a Prince Charming when a Cinderella shows up. Most importantly: What’s in your Investors Kit?
  • How to Quickly calculate whether an “Opportunity” is worth your limited time?
  • Simple Organizing technique that will save you 50% of the time you’re now wasting!

We’ll introduce the Group next Tuesday and the Solutions to those problems!

3. Next on our Agenda, we’ve got the local Market Update and how to translate that Data for your own use!

4. We’ll also have the Results of using our latest Tenant Check System- “Grand Slam Investigations” (access is on our Home Page).

5. Also the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office is sending their top Assistant AG to cover Contractor problems some folks have, What you can do about them? and Most Importantly How to Avoid Problems in the first place!

Also how to get Contractors to call you back!

Networking & Marco’s Restaurante’ Pizza!


We’ve changed our membership model to Monthly instead of Annual, I’ll go over this tonight and if you have any problem with this please see ME (separately) at the next meeting.

Sad Tale Jiminy…

Master Minding a Problem

E-Myth by Michael Gerber

”Difference between an Ordinary person & a Warrior is that a Warrior takes everything as a Challenge ab=while an Ordinary Person takes everything and a Blessing or a Curse”

To Live through an Impossible Situation, you don’t need the reflexes of a Grand Prix driver, the muscles of a Hercules, the mind of Einstein. YOU SIMPLY NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO DO!

1,000,000. People start a business every year.

40% Fail the 1st year.

80% Fail in 5 years. 200,000 Left!

80% of those that didn’t fail in the 1st 5 years, Fail ih the 2nd 5 years. 40,000. Left

Premise of E-Myth – When it is systemized and applied purposely by a small business owner the Business Development Process has the power to transform any small business into an incredibly effective organization!


If your Thinking is Sloppy, Your Business will be Sloppy.

If your thinking is Disorganized, Your business will be Disorganized.

If you’re Greedy, your employees will be Greedy!

Business Owners

Exhaustion is Common, Exhilaration is Rare…

Whatever you were doing it’s technical Work!

Fatal assumption:

Technician  – One job they know well plus a dozen others they don’t know how to do well

Entrepreneur-(dreams) Are 10% Should be – 33%

Manager – (frets) Are 20% Should be – 33%

Technician – (ruminates) Are 70% Should be – 33%
