I really did not like writing when I was a kid, but somehow in my late 30’s I developed the urge to write a book when I was in the white collar world of mortgages. While I was in the mortgage business as a loan officer, I keep seeing young buyers make mistakes or receive less than accurate information from older people or real estate agents. As a result, I saw many poor decisions being made by people buying more house than they should have been buying, but hey, it was the early 2000’s before the market crash. (I wonder how many of those who bought are still in their homes today?)
Like any good financial adviser would say, have a well balanced investment plan so all of your eggs are not in one basket, so after the crash, I got the bright idea to start writing a book in mid 2007 to teach young people to buy right and thus wrote a book (mostly in the Ela Public Library in Lake Zurich) titled “Create Wealth With Homeownership” yes, you can find it at Amazon and I still have some copies available for purchase :). The book was published by a now defunct publisher DNA Press who insisted I use that title…..which did not accurately reflect the goal of the book….but there was only so much I could do and the book was published in 2009……..with enough sales to buy dinner!
Since I apparently like to write and teach, I’ve got my little blog here attached to my company where I can write, teach, and show everything that makes my company tick. If you are like me, you want to know who you are doing business with, so since my company has grown and I can’t see every customer, I figure you can get to know us a little bit here through the written and spoken word.
Thanks For Reading…….
