The Importance of Trust and Access to Information

  1. 1. The Importance Of Trust And Access To Information
  2. 2. There Are Two Ways Of Living That Are Core For Me: <ul><li>I always have to have access to as much information as possible before I make decisions </li></ul><ul><li>And </li></ul><ul><li>2) I make a point of dealing with people that I trust </li></ul>
  3. 3. In The Past I Ran An Asphalt Business in Detroit. In That Business We Essentially Purchased “Disposable Trucks.” They would be so destroyed after a summer of use, that I would just take them to the scrap yard afterwards. I learned very quickly that there were certain places to buy these “disposable trucks.”
  4. 4. For Example: Major publications like The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News were not places to find good deals. I looked in papers that were less Circulated, because those sellers rarely got any calls; therefore they were eager to sell their trucks at low prices.
  5. 5. When Something Is Not Well Advertised, Sellers Are Generally Enthusiastic To Sell It. I was able to purchase trucks every summer that were worth around $2,500 each, for ONE-TENTH of that price.
  6. 6. In Regards To Your Job Search, There Are Tons Of Jobs That Are Not Well Advertised. I run a company called Hound.com that tracks down job openings not advertised in major publications or on major job boards. Employers whose jobs are located and posted on Hound.com are very enthusiastic about hiring people who apply, because the pool of applicants is very small. You need to find opportunities in places everyone else is overlooking.
  7. 7. In My Life, I Have Been Stolen From, Been Cheated, And Had My Most Sacred Trusts Violated. Obviously I have learned I cannot trust certain people.
  8. 8. I Have Just Moved To Las Vegas And Am Living In A Condominium On The Strip. I have found people in Las Vegas to be very friendly and accommodating. I am not a gambler or a big partier, but there is definitely some invigorating energy going on around here.
  9. 9. I Was Waiting To Move Into My New Condo In Las Vegas When… I got a call from my broker. He said there was a second mortgage on my condo that would need to be forgiven by the bank before I could move in. He was hopeful the bank would do this. I was not happy.
  10. 10. I Was Under The Impression That The Deals Were All Through. At this point, I decided to look at another condo. I drove down the strip And stopped into a giant 41 story Building whose properties were only about half sold. I was talking to one of the developers, and he showed me his office; complete with desks and copiers, etc. “ I really like this,” I said. “Could I have one just like it if I moved in?”
  11. 11. After Another Five Or Ten Minutes Of Very Pleasant Negotiations… The developer agreed to lease me a unit for five years at a very favorable price. I looked in a place that was advertised less and because those sellers received fewer calls I received a better deal.
  12. 12. My Other Broker Was Calling Me Non-Stop, Trying To Get Me Back. That night, the developer allowed me to sleep in the master bedroom he used as an office. I was sleeping in the same room as all of his confidential papers. Ironically, I had lost the trust of a broker whom I had had several months of dealing with, and had gained trust in this developer I had met just that day.
  13. 13. My Search For A Condo Is Like The Majority Of Job Searches. <ul><li>One checks multiple websites. </li></ul><ul><li>One checks the papers. </li></ul><ul><li>One calls recruiters. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to look everywhere you </li></ul><ul><li>can to make the best, most informed decision. </li></ul>
  14. 14. The City Of Las Vegas, Much Like The Rest Of The Country, Is In Economic Crisis An apartment that would have cost $1,200,000 a few years ago, would now be listed at $500,000. But you might not get them for $500,000. You might pay $600,000 or even $800,000.
  15. 15. There Are So Many Sources Of Information That It Can Be Hard To Make The Best Decision Possible. It often comes down to this one question: WHO CAN YOU TRUST?
  16. 16. Without access to information, without  mixing it up  and without trust, it is much more difficult to move forward in the world and to make the best decisions.   You need trust and access to information.
