As I'm sure you're aware – this weekend is Christmas, and in the spirit of this special holiday, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Christmas stories. Enjoy!
Every now and then, I hear from people who are interested in trying out the REtipster Club membership site – but after they've looked at the sales page and seen the high level overview of what comes with the package, they still need more clarity on what they'll get if they decide to enroll and become a member.
I've always been a little hesitant to hammer my email list and readers with sales promotions for the site, because even though I've put a TON of work into the creation and maintenance of this platform, I don't want to be all about selling you stuff.
The only real downside to this approach is – I haven't always made it abundantly clear that this site even exists, and why YOU might want to sign up and become a member at some point… so with this in mind, my goal with this blog post (and video, below) is to give you a transparent look at what this site is all about, and what comes with the package for those who want to give it a try….

Something I don't talk about nearly enough on this blog is the power of real estate video.
On one hand, I have to acknowledge – it's a bit paradoxical that I love real estate video so much, because many of the properties I buy and sell are a LONG distance away, and they usually aren't worth my while to visit in person, or to pay someone else to get on-site video footage for me.
On the other hand, there are some properties (usually higher-end homes or tracts of land with unique, distinguishing features) that can absolutely benefit from a high quality, professionally compiled real estate video in the selling process.
When a property comes with a big enough profit margin, it can TOTALLY be a worthwhile investment (either in time, or money, or both) to get some great, on-site video footage and use it to compile a video listing for your property…. Read More
The first time I learned about the land flipping business (when I really took the time to understand what it was all about) – it seemed like the biggest no-brainer investment strategy I'd ever heard of.
The concept seemed so simple, and when I realized I could find mind-blowing deals and make serious money with such a basic type of property, I couldn't believe this wasn't more of a well-known, mainstream business model that everyone and their brother was doing.
Make no mistake about it – the land investing business can be a CRAZY profitable investment strategy, and it really does deserve more attention from the masses… but at the same time, I've found that a lot of people get into this business with the underlying misconception that it's EASY.
- Easy to find deals.
- Easy to get them sold.
- Easy to manage the business.
- Easy to make money.
The problem with “easy” is that it's a very subjective word…. Read More
In case I've never said it to you personally, I want to take a minute and say it right now.
Earlier this month… it occurred to me that the REtipster Blog is officially 4 years old.
I can still remember vividly, back in November of 2012 when I started this whole adventure.
At the time, nobody knew who I was or cared about my background… I was just one of the millions of real estate investors in the world trying to make a name for myself. All I had as a computer, a website, and a desire to help people through the struggles that inherently come with the real estate business.
As I look back on that past few years – it's incredible to see how far this site has come. Now sitting at 186 articles and pulling in over 120,000 visitors per month, it has been an amazing ride.… Read More
Back in 2011, I had my first introduction to the concept of video emails.
At the time, it was a pretty revolutionary new idea and almost nobody was doing it.
I still remember it vividly. The first time I opened my inbox and saw a VIDEO that someone had prepared and personalized just for me, it blew my freaking mind.
As someone who was thoroughly accustomed to getting the same, boring, monotonous emails every day, I was AMAZED at the way this video email commanded my attention.
The sender had called me out by name and talked for a few minutes, introducing himself and explaining his points to me. By the time I got to the end of the video, I felt like we were old friends! When I realized how impactful this video had been on me, I was instantly hooked.… Read More
