California Hard Money Wise Investments

The fundamental goal of investing is to make the best return on your money given the level of safety that you require. Simple and smart, right? It would be great to meet this goal with an equally simple investment. The fewer things we need to worry about, monitor and manage, the better; it gives us more time to enjoy our lives and concentrate on the things we do well. The financial world has exploded with investment instruments and strategies over the last couple of decades. Today, even the average investor can easily get involved in stocks, mutual funds, hedge...

Move Beyond The Barriers With A Hard Money Loan

If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs. I would love to have been the first to say that, but it’s a quote from a very wise businessman from India named Dhirubhai Ambani. He wrote that in his book, “Against All Odds: A Story Of Courage, Perseverance And Hope.” Ambani was speaking a simple truth that is extraordinarily relevant today because if you are always merely working for the wages someone else pays you, your financial dreams will never become a reality. The key to creating wealth today is to recognize that we...

Hard Money Loans And Double-Digit Returns

Have you ever had a nightmare where you discover one day that everything you believed to be true turns out to be wrong? I read an article in the “Money” section of U.S. News and World report the other day that listed 10 common investing rules that don’t apply anymore.

Did you know, for example, that you won’t necessarily drown if you...

Achieving Success Through Hard Money Loans

Sometimes the “noise” of the day-to-day news cycle keeps us from seeing the bigger trends in life, and I think this truth applies to the financial world more directly than almost anywhere else. For example, when the economy takes a downturn, it seems obvious when it finally occurs and in retrospect all the signs were there, but we get so absorbed in the minor ups and downs that we don’t take time to step back and look at the big picture. One trend that I think few are reporting on is how people are beginning to take direct control of their personal finances and...

Hard Money And Your Financial Future

We live in an age where we take a lot of things for granted. When we plug in an appliance, we know that we’ll get electricity to power it up. When we climb into our cars and turn the key, we know the engine will fire. When we go to the ATM and slip our card into the slot, we know we’ll be able to make a cash withdrawal – unless you’re in Greece. Recent economic strains have shown us that the financial system we all depend on may not be as solid as we have always accepted. When Cyprus ran into financial trouble, bank depositors received a “hair cut” – they woke...
