Antonio Velardo with some holiday tips for your safety

Knowing Prevailed Disease/ Viruses

Another important thing to do is to know about all the prevailed diseases and viruses in your destination. For instance, you are going to explore Las Vegas but nowadays some virus caused cough is prevailed in the city as your friend Car David Ceder has informed you. You are all done with you hotel booking in Las Vegas and just about to reach there. You may take some medicines with you to avoid that viral disease.

Hygienic Food

You have planned about the food you are going to eat and have marked so many of the restaurants to dine in. All of your planning is based on the taste and your choice of food. To have a healthy holiday you should prefer hygienic food rather than just tasty stuff. So, if you are enjoying your holidays in Los Angeles and your cousin Antonio Velardo wants to take you to famous restaurants in the city. You may visit all of these exciting restaurants of that city with your cousin Antonio Velardo who is quite familiar with the quality of food available there.

Precautionary Measures

Apart from these aspects, it is better to take precautionary measures in time. If you get an injury, do not try to man up and avoid visiting a doctor. Eat what you know is healthy and do not even think of getting into conditions that you do not know the results beforehand.

Antonio Velardo and Mark Cuban with more on college debt

Yes, Mark Cuban has some clear feelings on this issue. I don’t agree with everything the guy says but he does have some thought-provoking ideas on college and that is why, if nothing else, I wanted to share them here. He tells us to stay away from any college that is investing in buildings. He says they are basically wasting your money instead of investing it in teachers and the educational experience. I don’t agree with that, but I do agree with being mindful about how much money your college really is, and taking that debt out mindful of that. It is a huge investment and investing too much financially can put you off on an awful start early in life, and that is no good. You can never go wrong with investing in yourself, but you can go wrong in taking out too much debt for any reason at all.

A few words form Antonio Velardo concerning eating out

There are so many amazing restaurants through out Florida

I am no glutton, though i do enjoy eating. However, there are many who think that one has only single life to do everything and no one can come back for to eat more after departing from the world and that makes sense to me. They just love food and love to eat as well. I love to eat, there is no doubt!

For example, Carl David Ceder wants to explore Florida and he is just about to fly for Fort Lauderdale for many things but one of them include eating. Prior to this he must realize that in order to experience all of the delicious food available in this city he has to save as much money as he can on the flight to Fort Lauderdale from Dallas. This will allow him to maximize his pleasure of having all the delicious meal in the city without having to worry about penny pinching as it were.

There are many great places to eat in Fort Lauderdale and he can find all his desired goodies to fulfill his craving for food and for the experience. Casa D’Angelo Ristorante, Café Martorano, Sage Café, Vienna Café & Wine Bar and Wild East Bistro are some of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale to dine in.I have been to many of them and enjoy them all very much. If you are ever privileged to make it here I suggest you try all of the restaurants that you can.

Antonio Velardo with the concept of vacancy

The dreadful word vacancy.

People lose money or make bad investments primarily because they do not understand how to calculate it correctly.

Obviously, calculating vacancy is not easy at all. What many investors seem to do is simply discount 10%, sometimes even only 5% from the gross value of the rent that they are supposed to get…and then they just hope that it works. This is a pretty basic measure of vacancy. Depending on your goals and what you are doing, it may even serve your purpose. However, if you want to be a professional, you are going to need some more sophistication in the process.

Vacancy is a powerful tool to use in order to be able to understand the potential of an investment

What is vacancy?

Vacancy is simply the money that you need to consider and take off from the gross rent because the unit is not rented. It is also a powerful indicator of how good an investment really is and what growth potential it may have because it is going to help measure your profits and losses on a given investment to some degree. Vacancy is inversely proportional to the expected growth of a property.

I have written more about this at http://www.antoniovelardoblog.com/dreadful-word-vacancy/ if you want a much more in-depth look at the topic. For now, I simply want to convey to you the importance of understanding the concept and realizing the importance of calculating it correctly if you plan to invest in a potential rental property. I wish you all the best until next time~Antonio Velardo

Antonio Velardo sharing Warren Buffets thoughts on cash

I enjoy reading an listening to this man. He knows what he is talking about. Warren Buffet has had tremendous success in life and in what he does. His thoughts here on cash are very interesting. I am not sure I necessarily agree with him. However, there is something to be said for having something that produces cash for you–instead of just having cash that lays dormant and produces nothing for you. Sure, when all is said and done you still have the cash, but no more and no more than what you had before. Considering the time period inf act the purchase power may have decreased, in effect meaning you lost money. Invest in yourself, this is what I believe in. Invest in your skills, in your ability to continue to earn. Just some thoughts I wanted to share. Real estate is my business and I have gotten good at it–it produces cash every time as long as I stick to what I know. That is my measure of success in what I do. Still, I think there is good advice here to be heard with Mr. Buffet.

Antonio Velardo with a few thoughts on business and investing

Antonio Velardo sharing a few thoughts concerning business and investing which I hope you find helpful. You know, real estate is my forte. I have been in the business for many years now and have learned a lot of lessons in the trenches concerning what works and what does not. I firmly believe that mastering whatever it is you do is pivotal to having any type of success, especially if you are going to be an entrepreneur. This was my early goal whenever I decided I wanted to be involved in real estate and make money at it, that is, to make a living in the real estate industry.

Here are some short words of advice from Warren Buffet and Barbara Corcoran that I wanted to convey quickly because their advice here holds so much power. Not a lot of people have it in themselves to go after what they want, and to do it on their own. There is a lot to be said to being your own boss and doing things your way. All of the success is on your shoulders, as well as all of the responsibility. If it were all that easy than everyone would be doing it. The world would be full of a lot of chiefs and not so many Indians. It takes knowledge, it takes guts, and it takes perseverance. This is why I recommend so strongly that whether you are getting into real estate or just any venture on your own that you know your market, or your product or whatever you are offering inside and out. This knowledge base will take a lot of the pressure off of you and make that one less thing to worry about. It will also help in that what you are doing is your passion. If you enjoy what you are doing and you know it then this makes the daily sacrifices needed to make success happen that much easier to stomach and bear. I am not saying this is going to make it a smooth ride, but it will certainly help, no doubt!

Short, Sweet, and to the Point: Boost Your Productivity By Saying No

Others may want you to do everything ASAP. Still not very useful. If this is the response, you’ll just have to say, “I’ll work on Project A first, then.” If you get an objection, then ask what you should do instead. Point out you can only do one thing at a time effectively, and ask—again, without rancor—for assistance in prioritizing. There’s no human way you can complete five significant projects all due Friday without something breaking down. Because you’re only flesh and blood, that thing will probably be you.
