Weekly wrap: A busy AND productive week

Based on the total number of posts during the past 7 days, I can say it has been a very busy week. But it is better than that because it has also been a productive one.

My wife and I have been busy AND productive with our own respective online and offline activities. You guessed it, these are mostly related to real estate.

In my case, let me just say that I worked on some deals and projects with the help of fellow real estate investors, real estate brokers, and friends. You know who you are, and thanks to all of you (and to God of course!) , I can say it has been a truly productive week!

As the week starts, let us all keep in mind that being busy does not necessarily mean being productive, just like being efficient does not always equate to being effective. After all:

A lot of our ‘busy ness’ is a way for us to avoid thinking about what is most important. There’s a difference between being busy and being productive. ~ Kristen Lippincott

With that said, here’s a wrap-up of what happened here during the past week.

I believe I will finally get to share my pleasant experience when I visited the Registry of Deeds located in Binangonan Rizal. Even though it was a long drive, traffic was light and I actually enjoyed it!

I also want to share the logic behind my decision to stop investing in mutual funds in favor of foreclosed properties, as part of the money Summit 2011 series.

Of course, I will be posting listings of foreclosed properties and repossessed cars this week.

Have a productive week ahead!


To our success and financial freedom!
