When I Was 14 I Almost Died in a Plane Crash

…with my whole family.

But I’ll get back to this in a minute…

Did you know the SBA offers low-interest disaster loans as an affordable way for individuals and businesses to recover from declared disasters?

I don’t know how I’m going to pay my employees next week bud

This is what a friend and client of mine said to me yesterday…

But it wasn’t what he said… but how he said it.

He’s was afraid…

And he’s right to be…

This Coronavirus shit storm we’re going through is serious business.

It’s SMART to be afraid!

If YOU’RE NOT afraid, you’re an idiot!

But there’s a difference between fear and panic.

And that’s EXACTLY what the pilot in that 6-person Cessna didn’t do…

He didn’t panic!

That’s why I’m alive and able to write this email to you today…

Because some smuggler 36 years ago,

…I didn’t even know… kept his cool!

As the plane took a nose dive, all I remember was trying not to vomit…

While getting my face squeezed by the g-force against my window!

By the way…

My friend’s fear is the same fear all of us are feeling right now…

Fear of the unknown, fear for our well being, both personal and financial…

Fear for our friends and family’s health and businesses that have already taken a direct hit.

Here’s what I know…

The pros are on the case and based on what I’m seeing…

They know what they’re doing.

We’re making progress, the outlook is better than it was last week, even though we’re not out of the woods yet.

Stay focused on your day to day…

…and STOP WATCHING THE NEWS FOR GOD’S SAKE!

Remember to go to this link for your Florida, State and Local updates.

…and for global updates here are the best two resources:

  • The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • WHO (The World Health Organization)

Anyway, back to how we can get our hands on some money! 

Yes!…

The SBA offers disaster loans as an affordable way for businesses to recover from declared disasters. 

It’s called, the:

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Small Business Guidance & Loan Resources

And I’ve been sharing it with every business owner I know…

Keeping your doors open for business is priority #1.

So any funds at low cost you can get your hands on for internal cash-flow emergencies is a good strategy to follow…

Let me know how it goes…

Is Your Real Estate Business a Hobby, Job, Career, or Vocation?

Many of my friends and colleagues are realtors. Some of them do better than others. Most of them are scraping by. Less than 1% are CRUSHING IT! So what are these one-percenters doing differently than everyone else? They’re not smarter or more knowledgeable. They have access to the same inventory everyone else does. They have the […]
