At a Crossroads?

Posted September 18th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

At some point sooner than later this thing swings my way and all the nonsense is exposed for exactly what it is.

Dear Rob,

I have a sense of things, and it seems I am at a crossroads.

Real estate investing used to be fun, profitable, and there was a sense of pride in having done a deal well.

That holds doubley true for a foreclosure deal that saves someone’s home.

Now, it’s not nearly as fun.


consider quitting

So, I’m not quite sure what to do.

Having experienced the nonsense your office has heaped upon me this last year or so, it almost seems pointless to continue. When every day is just another day of BS, you begin to wonder if it’s worth the effort to continue fighting the good fight.

Sometimes, admittedly, it’s occured to me to at least consider quitting.

Forget that.

I’m done going down that path. I’m done letting your office get to me or ruin my day. From this moment on it’s game on.


no quit in me

Do what you’ve got to do. Pull out whatever stops you feel you must. But keep one thing in mind . . . I will not quit.

At some point sooner than later this thing swings my way and all the nonsense is exposed for exactly what it is.

I’m done playing nice Rob.

The “respectfully” thing is over.

Push has come to shove.

    I empathise with the gloves off sentiment. Still, keep the “respectfully” veneer. Even feigned politeness will enhance your efforts, your results, and ultimately your satisfaction from each well placed strike.

    I learned along time ago that respect is something that can’t be demanded it must be earned. Keep fighting the good fight Joe not only for yourself but for all the little guys.

    It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! If you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth, but ya gotta be willing to take the hit.”—Rocky Balboa

    Joe,
    It seems that part of reason behind your blog is to systematically demonstrate to the AG folks (and anyone else paying attention)that thier case is crap and should just be droped, correct?

    I think you have done a very good job of that.

    Problem is, you are swimming against the “tide” of growing negative public sentiment towards RE investors, foresclsure “rescue” etc etc.

    The AG knows this. and is probably hoping to bleed you of resolve and resourses to fight back.

    It’s not about “justice”. He needs a win and is hoping you will be it.

    Could be wrong, but I think you may have to project the message that you will go the the mat fighting tooth and nail and never give up. Perhaps if they get the feeling that trying to hang you is just going to be to costly and ugly, they may go away.

    Every animal knows never to go after badger. They are to damn mean and they fight to the death. It’s too “costly” to try and take one down.

    You may have to bring on the badger to make them think twice about continuing…
