Selling all his stuff probably isn't the wisest move either because next month he's going to face the same type of problems.
The mortgage payment doesn't stop. Nor do the other bills.
I'd suggest he get some real skills and hone his craft. Let the house foreclose, move into a cheap apartment, and plug away until he's got it down. If that don't work, get a real job.
My point is, he got to this point for a reason. And even if he did get $10,000 all of the sudden, more then likely he'd be in the same scenario 3 months from now.
I'd be focusing on how to build some sustainable skills, not just getting a quick 10 G's.
However, if I were just trying to get a quick sum like that, I'd probably try to partner up with someone wealthy and make them a offer they couldn't possibly refuse and work my ass off for them.
I'd construct an amazing letter and pass that thing out to about 30 successful entrepreneurs offering my services for a fraction of the cost over a long period of time.
I wanted to reply in the original thread, but his message was passed over and I didnt want to reply to his post in that thread and mess it up..
Not that Ive read all or a lot of J-Mo's posts, I see he's got over 2k..
this one above truly shows he knows his stuff...
no marketing fluff..
honest to goodness information that, generally people do not want to hear.
Well said mate..
One of the best lessons I learn't going back a while now, was going bankrupt... you DO either learn or drown, I was one of the lucky ones who got the lessons that were thrown in my and my wife's face. I can tell you at the time it was not pretty.
Though have since never looked back.
now. no debt, (apart from investments) tons of properties, successful businesses, incredible family who gets to enjoy the fruits of this.
Some times you got to hit rock bottom, before you can get the lessons..
So many people sit just above it, to scared to get it. and suffer mediocrity as a result..
The point of this post is..
Sometimes you need to get the lessons yourself and not rely on others to get you out of the mess. Then all youve learnt is to get help. not the lesson that got you in the mess in the first place.
