Aruba, Jamaica ooh I Want To Take Ya!
We abandoned Nick and took off to Aruba last week! What a blast, my two kids kept Carol and I busy. I definitely need a vacation from the vacation!
One of the coolest experiences was visiting the WWII German War Ship that was scuttled by the captained off the coast during WWII. You can see it behind the fish in the picture above. We're taking that shot from a little submarine ride we took.
The ship was fairly new and was delivering a commercial shipment to the area when the war broke out. Instead of losing the ship the captain blew a hole in it and set it on fire. It's now a popular diving adventure.
We took a little submarine thing with the kids to see it. Then later the same day I took my son on a helicopter ride around Aruba and we flew right over the shipwreck.
That's my 6-year old. I'm not sure if he's happy, excited or just terrified to by flying in a helicopter for his first time.
The picture above is the same shipwreck as seen from the helicopter later the same day.
Enough of Aruba...back to real estate investing!
This week's Featured Article is about the type of decisions you need to make to maximize your investing. We can't believe how often investors will lose thousands of dollars over such meaningless things. You'll find it below...
Until next time...be a Renegade!

"Your Investment In Rental Property Should Include This Often Overlooked Line of Thinking"
This might sound a bit harsh and I go off topic a bit at the start, but hear me out. I promise there is a great lesson in this.
In business it is important to understand your costs and your return on investment. I think that is fairly simple. But it seems that many people just have not clued in yet.
Recently I ran an ad in the local paper by our offices. This is a company, and ad rep that I have spent tens of thousands of dollars with in under two years. For the first time since I started working with this company they ran the ad without my final approval.
I am not an overly picky customer so I would have been fine with it EXCEPT they made changes to the ad that I didn't ask for. So I have now paid for an ad (just over $600) that is not what I had requested, and I wasn't given the final say on the changes.
Now, I have never been in advertising sales but what I can say is that I have placed many ads with a lot of different companies. And I'll let you guess what the one constant thing is........Right, they all send you a proof before the ad runs to make sure you are happy with it. I even get this service with a $100 classified ad if I ask.
So I decided to call and mention that I was not sent a final proof of the ad for approval and changes that were not requested were made. I was not angry but I felt that there should some sort of recourse for such an incident. Really I thought this would be a small thing that we would get resolved and move forward......it wasn't!
I will keep it short for our purposes but by the end of it I was in contact with the Advertising Director at the paper. And after a couple of emails to which he did not even acknowledge that they ran an incorrect ad or answer any questions posed to him, he finally called me. His tone was harsh and condescending but he grudgingly agreed to a 50% refund. Which works out to about ($300 + tax).
It sounds good, but the only problem is now I am left with an entire different outlook on the company as a whole, and it persuades me not to do business with them any longer.
Let's look at this because it applies directly to business and real estate investments.
Let's guess that I have only spent $15,000 with this company, and up until this point was happy with everything. Because of the way I was treated for their mistake, which they did not verbally accept responsibility for, I am now left with a bad taste in my mouth. All because of the $300 I has asked for.
If handled correctly this could have been the best $300 they ever spent. If that's what it took to keep me happy and spend another $15,000 that would be a 5000% return on their investment in under two years. Did you catch that? 5000%
Would you be willing to spend $300 to have a customer with a proven track record that shows that kind of return?
I would everyday of the week, and do it happily. And so would any other smart business owner.
The problem is that this Advertising Director didn't understand the long term value of customer or the big picture of a business relationship.
I agree, it is sad but true. Think about the owner of the paper that just lost out on this future revenue, he or she must be thrilled right? Nope!
How does this apply to investment in rental property?.....Good question.
