My New Blog…

Shawn, Jennifer, Debbie, Nicky

Shawn, Jennifer, Debbie, Nicky

Well, I can’t believe I’m doing this. My staff has actually talked me in to personally participating in this blog. Yes, it will be me communicating, not someone talking for me. Please don’t expect me to be on here with mindless chatter multiple times a day. I have committed to answering this blog at least once or as often as I can get around to it. You’ve got to remember, I’m 67 years old and up until three years ago, hadn’t sent or received my first email, so this is a giant leap for me.

Ron Giving Away $2,000 Cash

Ron Giving Away $2,000 Cash

We just recently returned from a speaking trip I made to Houston to address the Lifestyles event, which is a once a year event put on by Del Walmsley who happens to have a pretty good following in the Houston market in the apartment niche. We were really impressed by the size of the event with over 2,500 people in it. I got to talk for a whole 45 minutes, but we put quite a few people in a 1 day workshop where I’ll be able to go back on the 15th and spend the day with them telling them what we do and how they can get started.

Russ Whitney spoke just before me followed by Dell and I’ve got to tell you, for me to create a 45 minute speech was no easy task, but I pulled it off.

I’ve included some pictures. The first one is with the four musketeers who went with me to Houston to manage the crowd. They include Shawn, Jennifer, Debbie and Nicky. And I must confess they did a masterful job of handling the crowd because we were in a trade show booth all day long and it was non-stop.

Next is a picture of me standing on a chair giving away $2,000 in cash to four lucky winners that day. It’s amazing how many people will congregate to actually get cash. Well, four lucky winners went away with $500 more than they came with.

There’s also a picture of the big, dark arena we were in which was a miserable place to speak, but we made do. And below that is a picture of me with Alan Langston who is one of the leaders in the Rich Club in Houston and also a member of my REIA Mastermind group consisting of about 15 REIA group leaders throughout the nation. I’ll be working with them in the month of March doing their club meeting and a 1 day workshop for them as well.

Okay, you can use this blog for whatever you want to chat about including questions about real estate or about personal things. I’m not afraid of any question you want to ask and If I don’t know the answer, I’ll make up something anyway so have at it.

    Great to finally meet you in person. Dodd-Frank is a game changer and thank you for the explanation. See you Saturday and again on the 19th!

    Ron, I watched as my own father turned age 65 and "retired" which changed his life. He was very active and ambitious throughout his entire life. When he retired he basically gave up and become a victim of Alzheimer disease and lived about 10 more years before passing. I am very proud of you taking the next step to accomplish such a feat as to ambitiously pursue a blog personally. Learning must never die! Continue to learn grow and improve and you will live a very long healthy life. Thanks for sharing and inspiring many throughout our lives and endeavors of real estate and wealth building by helping others obtain what they want.

    Well done Ron for embracing new technologies and ideas! I did one of your 5 day extravanganza's at the Hilton Hotel near the Los Angeles Airport in 2009 and although I never got to meet you personally, I could tell you're a principled man who wants to see both people and country succeed. God bless in your continued endeavours!

    First of all, Thank you for your service to our country Ron. For your military service and your service to the real estate industry. Unbelievable. Well like you, I haven't spent a lot of time with mindless chatter on blog sites, but if there is anyone I would like to hear their thoughts about anything, it would be you!

    Heck you'll still be active in the nursing home, they would have to sedate you, to settle you down. You'd be networking in there.

    This thing cut me off in mid sentance. Im beginning to see why i havent been blogging. Sitting here trying to decide when to plant the garden. Asked several people and all have different answers. Easy to see what you guys go through talking to real estate gurus.

  10. Steve Hardwick on March 21, 2014 at 6:33 pm

    Ron, you are an inspiration! Congratulation on your new blog! I look forward to reading much more in time and gleaning from your powerful experiences and wisdom. ("Old guy" certainly is only relative to one's state of mind and you have proved that it is not a part of your vocabulary.)
