Mistakes Millionaires Never Make!

There is a reason that Publisher's Clearing House no longer gives away a large Grand Prize of $10 Million dollars.

You have seen their TV ads.  It's now $5,000 a week for life!

Why did they change this so a poor person would only receive a nice weekly prize rather than a large sum of money.

I know the reason and I don't have to ask anyone.

You see, most people don't know how to manage money.

In an exit interview with CBS Affiliate in Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant was asked: (paraphrasing) What was one of the things you learned after signing your first big contract?

Kobe responded that, you don't give a Million dollars to anyone.

His rational for this was if you give a relative, who asks for a million, the million dollars, they are right back the next year asking for another million dollars again.

He said the best thing to give them is a monthly income.

He's right.

That's why Publisher's Clearing House no longer gives anyone a grand prize.  They finally realized that it was better to give $5,000 a week for life, then to dump a large sum on an untrained money manager.

So, when I saw this article, I thought all of you unsuspecting untrained money managers should know what true billionaires do to help them maintain their wealth

"You have to get rid of THAT!"

About  week ago, the wife and I went to dinner at a "New" Boyd Gaming Restaurant.
Hey, we are locals and the gaming companies here -- especially the ones that cater to the local populous -- usually will mail you discounts to come to their properties and eat at one of their ever changing restaurants they have.

(In Las Vegas, new concepts usually die fast, so you go and try them while you can.)

Anyway, while we were eating I sensed the ever loving stare upon me and true to my fashion, I had to ask: 'What's up?'

Without hesitation, my wife said, "You have to get rid of that!"

She looked directly at the 'bump' on my forehead that I had had for a few years.  It's not discolored or anything like that.  It's just a bump just over the right eye.

"Sure," I replied.  "I will."

Well, I took her command seriously.  I found a dermatologist, who looked at it, squashed it slightly.
"Does that hurt?" he asked.

I told the doctor the wife had said she wants it removed -- whether it's good or bad.

He said, it's most likely a cyst, and it can be removed easily.

Well, I'm scheduled to have it removed whether insurance covers it or not.

So, what's this got to do with CRE?

Well, nothing....except that restaurants in Las Vegas -- even if located within a casino -- have an 85% chance to fail.

But, I have found that if the food is good and the service is better, you have a better than 50% chance of making it.

Also, if you have any CRE questions, you can contact me...

Hopefully, sans forehead bump.

Happy Birthday To Me!

Tomorrow, March 21st, I grow another year older.

And, patting myself on the back for living long and (somewhat) prospering isn't something to celebrate - especially at my age.

Oh, well.  At least, I'm alive and kicking!

Have a wonderful day!
