Women Entrepreneurs, they wanna get into real estate investing, however they see it as a challenge.

I'm not excluding you gentlemen, but this here is mainly gonna be directed towards an overall, but mainly towards the women entrepreneurs to help them, just as well as the gentlemen, how to get into real estate investment, okay? And the first thing you have to do understanding that even though [01:32] ____... Number one, you have to have... You have to clean your credit, okay? And the reason that I say clean your credit, it's because even with hard money lenders, they're not trusting. Some of them, if you've been out there long enough, they'll deal with you. But if you're a newbie coming into the game, hard money lenders, they're gonna see what's on your credit. They're gonna look and see if you ever owned any type of real estate before. Because again, as I told you all before, your credit is your personality. Your credit tells a lot about you, whether it may be true or not, it does say a lot about you.

That's the reason that I try to encourage you all. First, fix your credit. And it doesn't take a long time to fix your credit. I know there's a lot of credit repair companies out here that have disappointed many of you with the credit process. That's the reason that, with our program, I implemented the escrow accounts. So, that way, it protects you as the consumer, as well as making sure that the job gets done. That means that you put that money in escrow, and the repair company cannot access that funding until they are able to show that they have cleaned the credit, at least between 75% to 80% of that credit. So, there's no way that you're gonna be taken advantage of, not if you're coming through my company, okay? And we have four different divisions that deal with credit, plus an in-house attorney, which is very good. 1-888-883-3013

I'm in miSPA's Blog!!

Such an Honor to Be in Mimie's Blog

A few weeks ago, I spent several glorious days with Indie Beauty Network member Lori Nova of The Nova Studio teaching a series of classes at her Business Boot Camp and hosting Indies in the City. While there, I met IBN member Mimie Wong of miSPA in Alameda, California. Mimie has been a member of IBN since October 2006, and so while I knew what a fun, smart and creative Indie she is, it was very exciting to meet her in person and add an embrace to an already sweet business friendship.


Earlier today, while tooling around IBN member sites, which is one of my favorite things to do, I went to Mimie's site to see what she's been up to since we met last month. When I clicked on her blog, I was pleasantly surprised to see a photo of me and Mimie at the Boot Camp!

It's such fun to watch my Indies thrive and have fun. Mimie is a graphics artist by training, and you can tell that her talent and training is put to good use when you see her website and the wonderful products displayed there. Each label is a neat little masterpiece. "Simple elegance" is a good way to describe it.

Mimie's having a contest to name her new "cleanse-balance-moisturize" system. You have until October 7 to help her come up with the perfect name for the line. If you win, Mimie promises to shower you with some delicious treats. And while you're there, note the really cool way Mimie displays the date in the upper left of her blog. Told you she was creative! Tell her dM sent you!

Indies in the City: San Francisco

I Love Indies in San Francisco!

We had a fantastic time last night at Indies in the City in Point Richmond, California, about 20 minutes outside of one of my favorite cities: San Francisco. I am here for the next 4 days to share my knowledge and experience at Lori Nova's Business Boot Camp. I am always excited to do that, but especially for this event because Lori's Nova Studio is such a lovely and intimate workshop. While I like sharing in any venue, I really love it when I can be up close and personal with other Indies. Here's a picture of everyone smiling in the midst of the chicha.


L to R: IBN member Donna Lang, The Aromatic Way; Rochel Roland, Kelly Chadwick of Pure Indulgence; dM, Ann Walls, IBN member Joan Morais of Joan Morais Natural Body Care Classes & Workshops; IBN member Lori Nova of The Nova Studio. Throughout the next four days, along with other experts in various fields of small business success, I'll be addressing Lori's group.

My topics are:

  • The New Brand of Business Leaders: Just look around at all of the failed examples of leadership in our society today. Politically, socially and especially in the real estate and financial worlds, people who have taken leadership seminars from the world's best have turned out to be some of the worst leaders of our time. Indies to the rescue! We are the new brand of business leaders. Gone are the days how to identify and embrace your own special form of Indie Business leadership
  • Saving Your Business Before it Starts: Who has time for tomes and volumes of paper exploring ad nauseum how a business will start and become profitable. I take the evening bag approach to business planning: focused and detailed, yet efficient and realistic. I love this one!
  • Your Hidden Intellectual Property Assets: Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Trademarks, copyrights and layers, oh my! Grasping this stuff is easier than you might think, and I'm going to share all of my attorney tricks from 20 years of practice so help avoid heartache and capitalize on assets that most people miss out on.
  • Become the News You Want to Be: Skip all the expensive workshops about how to get your products featured in top fashion magazines and national television talk shows. Bring the world to your door using using time, your creativity and your laptop. Indies are the news today, and your own story is the world's most popular headline! I'm going to show 17 lucky people how it's done!

You can see a full list of speakers and topics at Lori's website.
