One of my secrets to folks who are interested in commercial real estate is to network with others in a way that is most beneficial to you.

The idea here is to pivot mental state of others towards you in a way that is beneficial to you and others.... one way to begin networking is to simply begin joining other like minded folks.... and one way of doing so Is by beginning....your journey with analyzing deals..... deals is what will get you started in being connected with others....

One way to get started is to check out syndicated deal analyzer.... http://StudyGuide.net/Deal-Analyzer

Now that you understand better understand factors to consider.. check out Michael's course review below about Ultimate Guide to buying Apartments... Here is the actual course linkg.

http://studyguide.net/ultimate-guide-to-buying-apartments


Rome Wells Review about this course

Ok, so you have read the course info... and probably wondering is this course a real deal? Here is what I thought about this course.

Upon reviewing multiple courses on the market that teach folks about commercial real estate investment, I simply wasn't able to find a course better then this one.

You see what Michael touches upon in his course is fundamental factors for how to achieve your financial freedom goal. He uses concepts of well refined and calculated math numbers behind every mental decision that he discusses in the course.

He describes patterns and gotchas in a way that I simply wouldn't be able to grasp on my own. He is like a guide that shows you everything you need to know about structuring deals and fast forwarding the math in time line periods, which are essential towards your financial freedom goal.

In a way Micahel is very similar to me, except his mindset is really inside the numbers and cashflow generation.. vs anything else... which is, of course, a great thing... simply because the distraction of all things is the enemy #1. He manages to get straight to the point with no fluffy fluff type of explanation.

Some other real estate courses that I managed to explore simply pure water and water into your brain and have way too much fluffy fluff, that makes the concept of learning effectiveness obsolete.


What I liked the most about the course is the very simple fact that it focuses on fundamental concepts that makes it easy to understand how the deal would look like after 1 year, 2 year, 3 years.

Now you may say... well Rome Wells, why did you like that? The reason why I like that is simply that my greatest weakness is understanding the numbers in time line periods. You may say well.. what do you mean?

Aren't you supposedly certified math teacher for the State of Connecticut, Founder of Tutoring Services, LLC, Math Tutor and Engineer and all of the above... then how can you have trouble understanding numbers in different time lines?

Yes indeed... even though I am certified math teacher for the state of CT and indeed many other things in between... I can tell you this... that once you have lots of different variables that are lurking around when it comes to investment properties, that even being certified math teacher for the state of CT or a math tutor won't help you.... unless you know the actual patterns behind the numbers in relationship and in context of all the little gotchas... that Michael is clearly describing in the course. (speaking of math here is my profile created in my own search engine designed by me)


Now you may say... well Rome Wells, if you are having trouble understanding numbers for how much money property will be in year 1, year 2, minus all the expenses, plus all the appreciation, minus all the headaches... then how on earth can regular folks understand concepts of commercial real estate investment?


Here is how
You see I (Rome Wells) have started the journey in exploring commercial real estate literally in January 1 2018 (now it's January 22). It did not take me long to learn concepts of analyzing commercial real estate deals. In literally less than a month... and you can do it too...

https://www.facebook.com/rome.wells.7/videos/1359408147499151/ <---here is my video talking abut my journey check it out.


The way to do it is to understand every single process behind purchasing a commercial real estate, and while learning concepts behind commercial real estate investment business gradually being experimenting with the syndicated deal analyzer spreadsheet.



The spreadsheet places your mind into the timelines, 1 year, 2 year, 3 year.... to see how much money you can make. Understanding numbers in timelines and knowing what you will do... when you reach particular timeline is critical part of planning...



You see there are many variables and factors that exist out there when it comes to making decision, whether to buy or not to buy property.



You may say well, Rome Wells.. no duhh... I know all that.. why you are putting water in my brain... tell me something I don't know...




Ok, Here is what I must say....


The amount of mistakes you can make when you start out in commercial real estate without first educating your self can put you at risk.. higher risk then what you would have hoped for..



Now.. you may say.. well I know that... but that is still not an excuse for me to pay almost 1k for this course... and get educated tell me something more convincing Rome Wells...



Ok.. Let me give you example to help you understand how many differect factors involved in commercial real estate....



I am going to try and break it down for you.... Here are the factors that are involved behind purchasing commercial real estate property.



Property Managers
Commercial real estate Brokers
Contractors
Real Estate Agenets
Inspectors
Lawyers
Accountants
Underwriters
Project Managers


What I just described, may seem obvious, but for every one of these factors, that I just mentioned there needs to be an actual strategy behind... pivoting these factors towards your financial freedom goal....



You see the entire business of commercial real estate investment is like a big network... a network of people that can help you reduce risk... but mitigating these risks.. requires you understanding the factors that revolved around commercial real estate.



Everyone of these factors described above requires strategies... and literally diving into the mind set of every one of these factors to help you undersatnd what each factor does, and how is it associated with your financial freedom goal....





What Michael does he touches upon many of these factors in his course, and he breaks it down lots of different details, about each of the factors in one shape or form, to help you reduce risk... when it comes to purchasing your first commercial real estate deal or capturing subsequent deals.



You see I have been in commercial real estate investment for only 22 days, since January 1st 2018... and guess what... the concepts that I discovered, that exist in commercial real estate business are absolutely incredible.



You may say Rome Wells, well why should I listen to this review from you... vs let's say some other successfull commercial real estate investor? After all you don't seem to have lots of experience in discussing any of the topics... in a first place.




Yes indeed, I do not have much experience as of now as I am writing this revie... but what I can tell you is this.... I know how to pivot mindsets of people... and the reason why I am providing this review of Michael's course it to help you pivot your mind in the direction of reality that you should consider pursing....



The reality is simple... if you visualize what you want you will get it... providing that you plan behind the scenes... but to be able to plan behind the scenes you must know numbers and math and details, and timelines and where you will be withing specific timeiline...



To plan and visualize and understand where you will be with your commercial real estate property that you have purchased... in 1 year 2 year 3 years.. you must understand every single detail... about not just the numbers, but the patterns and reasonings for waht makes up these numbers to be true... vs false...




Quick Tip From Rome Wells

Did you know that in many locations commercial real estate agents.. inflate properties by 25%.... in their listing price... on purpose so typical folks who are not knowledgeble enough... end up purchasing money pit vs cash cow?



Do you see how commercial real estate agent is part of the equation? In fact entire concept of commercial real estate investment is like a big equation... Speaking of equations, my company Tutoring Services, LLC provides tutoring for folks in math.. in case if you are interested in learning basic math, consider checking out my http://Facebook.com/MathTutor



Did you know that broker charges about 3% to 6% of the property value, but is also very helpful in helping you find property?








Did you know that all of these numbers can be minimized, or reduced or completely eradicated depending on how you buy the property?





Did you know that many of these numbers increase your property aquistion costs?



Why is Rome Wells telling you this? I am telling you this is because I do not like middle man... in fact visit my site where I have over 10000 teachers registered in... where I eradicate middle man out of the picture http://TutoringServices.com Middle man cost people money, and middle man on a big deal will cost you even more money....


Did you know what you find on loopnet already has tons of middle man in between? Deciphering through many of them.. is tricky... trying to make math work is tricky...



Remember idea.. here is not to get your first deal clap your hands and call it a day, but get your first deal under the constraint that it must be the type of deal that can allow you to grow your wealth into the next deal....



That transitional process of diving from one deal to another requries insane level of analysis, so insane that even me... Rome Wells.. had a hard time analyzing.. numbers.....



Mostly the reason why... I had a hard time was because I wasn't able to understand all the possible mistakes, or factors around commercial real estate investment business...





There is just tons and tons and tons of factors guys... when it comes to commercial real estate investment.. factors that you absolutely must understand and model in the timeline in terms of your financial freedom goal.



The entire concept of understanding whether deal is good or bad... is basically entire science....

Factors that were constantly on the back of my mind as I dived into the journey of commercial real estate...



Getting Funding for my first deal

What happens when I do get a deal... how will I be able to support if i I have a full time job.

What kind of deal it must be for me to be able to transition to another property after the 1st deal property, in such a way that it can help me support my expenses...

What kind of 1st property it must be for me to be able to afford property managers, brokers, and real estate agents....

What kind of area it must be in... and how do you know if it's a good area or a bad area

What else can you do to support your continous cash flow in case if you really in trouble and need to make money?

In another words what other strategy you must use... when diving into commercial real estate full time...

What if i don't quit my job and continue doing this on the side... which strategy would be most feasible for me.... (should I just be passive investor vs active... what will the numbers look like)
How will the numbers look like... if I was to also do something else such as fix up property a bit... (who will sell me property like that that requires fix up.. cash cow is hard to find....)

Where can I find people who can help me maintain property that I purchase, and at the same time have no conflict of interest....
Who can I ask for advice in regards to purchasing property

Can I purchase very expensive property, but in good area for trade off of having less headaches when it comes to maintenance of the property.

What are the rules of thumb when it comes to purchasing commercial real estate investment.

How to sniff out the bull shit from reality when it comes to numbers...

How to keep the brokers continuously bringing you good deals..
How to get private investors.. (without getting sammed... there is tons of scams... in regards to this concept.... )

What to do if You can't pay off investors as promised
How to position your leasing contract... to minimize risk with tenants.

What kind of tenants.. will the property have... in context of your busines strategy.. .(section 8... or just wealthy affluent tenants)
What type of properties bring best cash on cash return....

Where are the markets generating growth.... how do you know if they are generating growh...

What combination of tools i must use to analyze property...
How to figure out which property has upside potential and which one doesn't

How to feel comfortable with analyzing the overal risk of the property in context of how much mone you need to contribute...
What on earth are the after repair value indicators, cash on cash return, IRR, CAP rate, and all the other terminology... (how does these term revolve around property that you are attempting to purchase)

What happens if the roof goes bad.. what can i expect... to shell out... how can i repair roof my self... how can i figure out framing, basement finishing, kitchen finishing, bedroom finishing costs...
Should I use my own contractors, or try to hire independent contractors, how much of the trade do I know... how many trades to I know to feel comfortable in investing into commercial real estate property.

How do you compare financial numbers and value numbers.. of potential lower maintenace cost fees, and other fees...

How much time will I spend evicting tenants. How much time during the day I will spend attending courts to evict them or resolve conflicts..

What if I run into similar property like Michael ran into 12 unit property where there was a bad tenant... fear... of running into bad tenants and law problems is on the back of my mind... how did Michael get out of this trouble... find out how....

What taxes you end up getting hit with when you sell your property, how to reduce taxes, in which cases it makes sense to do 1031 exchange etc... etc.. etc.. (what on earth is 1031 exchange)

How do you find a partner, who is willing to work on houses and flip them and be your partner in your local area...

How do you know if the partner is good, how do you tell if the partner is good...

How do you know if property manager is good...
How do you know if commercial real estate broker is not faking the numbers to make the deal attractive to you so he/she can faster sell it and make money out of you, (for example by making expenses lower)

What mistakes should I avoid, what If I can't find a good deal... how to minimize headaches by buying more... vs buying less..

(meaning more apartment buildings) while maintaining the limits of realization that if it's too many apartments you may run into all sorts of maintenance issues and may not recover due to poor cash flow depending in the area...

How do I invest if i don't live in good area where there is any commercial real estate properties... (what can i do to find a good area and what if i am scared to invest into other areas and not sure if I should... ... should I consider investing passively or not.. or is that completely oppositie of my financial freedom goal...)
What is my financial freedom goal... and how many units do I need to get there...

Or perhaps maybe I shouldn't be looking at number of units but rather ROI....

How do i pick someones brain who is already in commercial real estate... (how does my book "The Secret Art Of Pivoting" come into play when convincing commercial real estate investors to invest with me...

Do I need to be like Michael to be able to get private investors to invest with me...

Do I need to be a network genious to connect the dots.. even though technically this is my site http://NetworkConsultant.NET (so perhaps maybe i am already a network genius since I can connect people and IT systesms sort of like Michael was in his early days before the age of 35. (now I am 36) or perhaps i focused on the wrong path, and should have been attempting to create networking in the field of commercial real estate... anything else that i was doing in life....

Do I need to convince people to work with me just like Michael did... to be able to get investors... to work with me and invest with me...

Do i even need to bring in investors in a first place, or perhaps I can save up enough money myself...

Perhaps I can just help folks come together and syndicate deals and help folks find the right properties and use my mindset to syndicate deals... or perhaps I can also be part of the network... and get support from other folks who are in the similar shoes of hunting for their commercial property deals...

Perhaps I can dive deep into commercial real estate and focus my energy on renovating properties and then selling them vs holding them...

Perhaps I should have combination of both strategies, of flipping and selling vs fix and hold...

Perhaps I should learn more trades.. more plumbing, more framing, more HVAC... (heck I already learned a bit of HVAC check out this page and view my journey of fixing HVAC) HVAC is expensive beast! (which is also part of the factor... when it comes to remodeling property)

Perhaps I should learn how to maximize window size in basement, perhaps I should learn how to replace an electrical heat/fan/light in a bathroom.

Perhaps I should learn how to use 3 model software to make a 3d sketch of the remodeled bathroom and be able to tell contractors where to put framing, electrical, piping, radiators, hvac ducts. (speaking of which since Jan 1 2018 in 2 days over the wekeend I managed to learn 3d software and designed my own bathroom... If interested how I did it hit me up from the chat window in the bottom right corner)

Perhaps I should learn about roofing... and basements, the sump pumps and the sewage pumps, and the floor materials, and the drywall, and the type of material in the walls, spray foaming and insulation... (speaking foam spraying i actually work for one of my clients in spray foam where I engineered his pumps that drive all over USA and Canada to connect to AWS cloud.. if you want to learn about my IT engineering journey and software defined networking feel free to check this link...)

Perhaps I can usebusiness relationship that I already have with foam spray manufacturer to help me out.. and insulate my basement... and so for subsequent properites....
Perhaps I should learn about project management... Oh wait I already did check my page out here http://StudyGuide.net/PMP
Perhaps I should have a helper... (yes I don't have one yet.. first i need to help my self and understand different trades)
Wait why do I need to understand different trades... well... to do the bathroom remodeling for my house that I already have... where my basement is not finished.. which I can rent out.... but that requires framing, plumbing, electrical knowledge and 3d design of the entire bathroom which is not even built yet...

How does knowing trades translate into my financial freedom goal.. Well I am not by profession a guy with the greatest skill of holding screw driver... but knowing enough trades to the level of being able to talk to the contractors and understand how much remodeling or fixing up property... will cost.. is directly translatable into my direction of financial freedom goal...

How is it translatable?

It's translatable because i can look beyond just spreadsheet numbers when looking at deals.. but can also look at the reality of these numbers in context of my overall understanding behind the trades.. involved.. and how much work would be involved to fix something....

Oh wait, but why am I doing this.. why am I learning different trades? Well simply because I want to be able to reduce risk... what type of risk... risk of being bullshitted by contractors and end up waisting a lot of money...

So wait how does Rome Wells minimizes risk? The answer is simple... learn shit load of different trades... one way of learning is redoing your own basement or adding a bathroom or engineering entire bathroom, and having multiple contractors come out and give you advice for how to remodel it.. after you understand multiple factors involved in adding a new bathroom for example... (and that requires sketching in 3d and knowing dimensions and math behind dimensions...)

Oh one more thing.. .measuring and knowing dimensions is such a pain in the ass... that was my weakest point always... If you are interested in... learning how to sketch in 3d and model your bathroom feel free to reach out to Rome Wells for 1 on 1 coaching here is my profile...

Measuing is the root of all evil.. measuing window opening or measuring anything in your basement is sooooo hard... especially when you are just mising all the knowledge... from the trades... (for example knowing things like how many inches from the wall framing goes.. etc.. all requires knowledge of carpentry... a bit of masonry, a bit of electrical a bit of plumbing etc...)

Oh, but wait... knowing all of the trades is complicated and like a full time job.. why not just let other fokls handle this.. but yes... that's a problem... if u do not know what you are doing.. u will be eaten alive... by all the money waisted from independent contractors.. better to figure out a way how to reduce this headache... and that is what Michael teaches how to dive into bigger properties where such headaches are minimized and where you do not have to manage property yourself, but in exchange for diving into bigger game....

Plus knowing all the trades sure it can be beneficial but... it's like a full time hassle... doing so... there got to be a better way... that is what Michael teaches...

Now that doesn't mean you shouldn't know... the trades.. I am for example learning the trades... because think of the risk factors involved... if you do not.... What if you are wrong with your commercial real estate deal... then how will you dive out of it?
If you are prepared well and educated well... then you can start mixing business strategies, such as buying some smaller multi-family houses and fixing it yourself or with your already advanced knowledge received from education and your carefully picked contractors....

The bottom line is there are lots of risks... you may feel that you are not ready for commercial real estate propery and may feel that it's better to get a property that has less units... (and if it's the case... then guess what it's ok... providing that it positions you in the right path in correlation with your Financial Freedom Goal and allows you to transition to another property).



So read 63 of my concerns... when it comes to commercial real estate investment?

(many of these concerns are covered in Michael's course in one shape or form, not exactly but... from high level overview standpoint... not i probably have 150 more concerns... which i simply can't think of just yet.. since i am learning about commercial real estate in parallel just like you are... plus i am on the very same wavelenght as you are... the reader... since i am not some super rich guru...sitting in his garage with Ferrarri.. but more relevant to you... hence my advice in combination with some successful person like Michael is very beneficial... or at least I think so... )



Would you like to learn more?


Then don't waist time, I Rome Wells spent lots of time in my life attempting to help people in education... the result of that effort was always continuous struggle of attempting to get any appreciation back in return for any of my efforts... In commercial real estate, your efforts will be appreciated... literally... (since property appreciate over time)



This is precisely why in 2018 I switched my mindset to commercial real estate investment. As of now I have a goal to fix my central air conditioner.... to build a bathroom in my basement,, replace my plaster ceiling, add flooring, since now it's just concrete and add framing, add piping, and use combination of my 3d design of the bathroom and pivotal skills to search for the right contractor in each of the trades to execute each portion of the job effectively and not too costly. Some jobs I will try to do myself and some I will outsource to contractors.


What is Rome Wells nearest Goal

By this June of 2018 I want to rent out my basement and have income coming in of about 1.2k per month. In the process of learning about the trades, I am planning on learning more from Michael and view all of his updated videos.. (keep in mind he provides updates also to his course.. it's not static... as it is the case with many other courses)



Plus he got this monthly program where he analyzes deals with other students. In short, I will be using knowledge from Michael to fuel my mindset in the direction of getting my first deal.


Now keep in my technially my first very first deal of finishing my basement and building a bathroom is not the same as what Michael teaches, but the thing is... it simply makes sense.. and when it makes sense in context of all the other things.. it's worth doing... and it's worth doing for me... to generate cash flow, and in the process of doing it... learn about the trades, for the purposes of reducing my risk when it comes to buying my first commercial real estate property.


o even purchase my first commercial real estate property as of this point... I have no idea.. how I will do it.. or where I will purchase it... all i know is that.. every time i watch Michael's video I am getting more and more confidence to pull the trigger... without Michael's course I would be continuing in my off path journey spending time in the direction where my efforts are not appreciated... with Michael's great german engineering mindset, it's easy for even me Rome Wells to be converted into commercial real estate business owner...

Read my Testimonials? Want to save perhaps a bit more money on your course?



Now that you have seen my testimonial... why not try joining Michael's course or, if you are not convinced check out his free ebook... and see what he has to offer.. and if you feel like that price of the course is still a lot for me... consider sending me Rome Wells chat message from the bottom right corner... icon... and ask me to hook you up with 10% coupon... in which case...



if I have time to respond, and Michael was kind enough to hook me up with some coupon which I can extend to you during any promotional period... then I will extend the coupon saving to you... where you will save additional 10%.. (however that 10% is not a gurantee it really depends on promotial timeline, but it doesn't hurt to simply send a message to me in the chat window on the bottom right corner and ask...)



If you do decide to message me from the bottom right corner simply say "Hey Rome wells can you hook me up with 10% on Michael's course" and if i have time I will respond back to you. If you do not hear back from me simply leave a message including your email and I will get back to you and let you know if coupon is available.




Also one more thing guys, consider visint my google plus blog page,, where i show visual representation of commercial real estate investment... where i show visually how i network things together.. to make it easier for you to understand commercial real estate business.


Also other useful places that you may want to consider visiting...

Visit Juan Pablo's blog... he is very motivational.. and i like his style of teaching.. he is very real.. and literally gives you really good advice.. combine that learning from his free youtube videos with Michael's course.. and you will have a lot of knowledge... so much that it may very well help you pull the trigger on your first deal and get your first property... remember action and persistence is the key... (but action and persistance comes with great planning) and Michael's course can help you become better in planning...

If you are trying to dive into commercial real estate then here are the factors you will want to consider when beginning your journey.

Also there many other factors you should consider. In fact there are thousands of factors to consider. The best way to find such factors, is to start analyzing commercial real estate properties.

One way to do so.... is to simply.... watch other folks analyze deals and learn on their mistakes. Upon watching other folks analyzing deals you will discover thousands of other factors, that perhaps you didn’t even think of.

These very same factors will help you develop your ow real estate investment strategy and help you reduce risk.

One way to get started with learning these factors is to dive deep into math behind these factors. Here is how... check out syndicated deal analyzer.... spreadsheet and discover what these factors are... StudyGuide.net/deal-analyzer and read my review about the product that helped me increase my confidence in commercial real estate investments and helped me understand the secret factors that you absolutely must know before investing in commercial real estate.

If you are a CISSP exam taker.... Great... you are on the right track career wise to make the best out of your cyber security career, but... most of the folks I noticed... who take CISSP exam... are not feeling secure financially...

Most of the folks take the exam to increase their career salary, and grow in skill set to make them valuable... in the eyes of the organization who is hiring them... but the reality of it all...

Folks who take CISSP exam are simply trying to secure their future... by becoming more valuable for the purposes of having better salary and working in corporate world...

Yet the real truth of it all... there is a cap... that you will reach in salary one day... the cap that you won’t go past, no matter how many certs you have...

So what is the point of doing any of this....if the salary you get tends to equate... to the salary of folks who are not cissp certified....

In fact... if you notice most of the job positions out there... ask you to be the leader the manager oriented type.... and the super star... and all of the above.... and expect you to secure to lead to, create that security awareness training for folks.... in organization where you currently working or end up working with your cissp credentials.... but at what costs?

The cost of you being like a dog reporting to its master for treats....to feel secure about yourself. For the cost of your efforts.... which is not factually seen....

Most companies out there can not quantify security efforts done by their employees...

cissp certified folks only know abstract level of tasks that need to be done.... to secure organization...and when such folks tell their business units that business units must all become security mind oriented folks... business units resist and can not understand... the value...

Simply because efforts of any actions required by business users is abstract and not clearly seen.... this results in questionable behavior from business units... towards cissp champions...

Behavior of not rewarding their cissp candidates well.. or simply behavior of attempting to use cissp certified person for something else... that is beyond the job responsibility...

The point I am trying to make is... cissp certified folks are extremely intelligent... and are most intelligent types of folks that I personally had pleasure meeting with.... and I met different mindsets from different people... lawyers, doctors, teachers, nurses, CIOs, college students, high school students etc....

So the point is... cissp folks are not appreciated enough to the level of obtaining a lot better salary... in comparison to more junior employees... who simply do not have such advanced level of cissp expertise and mindset as more senior oriented folks...

Junior folks that are in cyber security field simply getting a lot more pay.... because they are younger mostly... and because they think faster... their brain is faster.... vs an older person....

Companies discriminate against more senior folks... and do so secretively... in their practices....

Junior guys who are told... that your responsibility is to listen to senior cissp certified guys.... almost get paid the same... as senior guys... that’s the trend I am seeing folks... and the reality of it all...

What I am seeing is a convergence of salaries... where salaries regardless if you are a senior guy or junior are gearing towards the same constant flat line..... with not much of a deviation in between...

So what does all of this mean?

This means if you are the leader the champion the cissp certified person.... and doing all the work of telling junior guys what to do and getting paid almost the same... then what is the point of being the senior guy...in managerial settings...?

perhaps it’s simply better not to be that guy and simply be under someone... and be managed?

See the point? The point is you are working your ass off... yet ... junior guys get paid almost the same..... sure you may say that is not true.. indeed... there are some exceptions....but based on my analysis across many professions and the field of Information Technology and Cyber Security... that is precisely what I am seeing....

Therefore... yes making money in Corp organization is great... but... it should be a lot greater... for a lot less that is the point I am trying to make....

In fact I see similar trend across other professions and not just across cissp certified folks.

I see similar trend across other folks of similar caliber in other professions..

I see patterns that favor rich vs poor. I see patterns of middle class being no longer the same as it was in 1980s.

I see patterns of smart folks working hard but progression of their working hard efforts not being rewarded at the rate as it used to be.

Think about what kind of price you would pay for top of the line ford pick up truck car in 1980s vs now. What you will see is price of top pick up truck is a lot higher vs avg salary of the middle class folks.. vs what it used to be in 80s and before 80s

Why is that you must ask? The reason why is because the marker appeals more to rich vs poor. That means companies realize that they can sell more to rich vs poor and bump up the price. The very own nature of capitalism has major obstacle... that obstacle Is greed.

That greed is what makes people want to get paid more and as the result of that greed they market their products toward rich folks to be able to get paid more.

Sure there are exceptions, but.... the overall trend that no one can argue with is the fact that people want to get paid more, and this creates a problem.

Problem of not so much controlled or regulated market that sure evens out as it progresses further but it evens out gradually in the direction of favoring the rich vs poor.

In fact if you look at trend line on the graph for the past 30 years you will see middle class getting lower and lower pay and is becoming close to the poor class.

Meaning there is no clear distinction.... meaning there is no major gap.... meaning difference between poor and rich becomes bigger and bigger.

So what does this mean for cissp folks?

That means you working hard doesn’t equate to higher pay and you might as well don’t work hard and instead pick more relaxing position or job or career that does not equate into you being security champion super star and not getting paid for your efforts as much as you should be especially if you also have other certs.


What I rather prefer personally... is not to manage anyone and just be told what to do... less head aches.. and less effort... and do what I like to do best... screw around with logs looking at technical aspects of web security.. looking at east to west traffic, looking at technical side of the story....

Some folks simply prefer to be in the trenches vs... outside of the trenches... I prefer to see how of course security awareness training in lms shows results of who took the test and who did not.. and what score they received... sure I still have such mindset in me... but.. I would not want to lead and get paid the same as the junior guy.... after all what is the point if pay equates and converges with other professions that are less brain intensive more real, easier to see progress (vs having progress of solving tons of vulnerabilities which are questionable in a first place and seems like waist of time to management) in and requires less intellectual expertise.

That’s the reality.... I prefer the junior guy to be the manager and manage me... someone who is senior... vs managing the junior guy...

You may say Rome Wells you are crazy... why... why would you want to not be the leader... and the reason is.... I want to be the leader... but I do not think it’s proper use of my time if I don’t get rewarded better.... then the junior guys and not just better, but a lot better salary wise... that’s my mindset... and that is most of the folks mindset who are already cissp certified or attempting to become ones to feel more secure in their career wise and get better job opportunities.

So with all that being said... here is what I recommend to do instead... and this is the advice I will give you cissp folks... first over my other types of audience... (lawyers... teachers project managers etc...)

My advice is... go beyond your full time job.... go beyond cissp.... sure position yourself in your career... in a way that brings you less stress.... if you see you are getting not appreciated enough at your work... then this is how you slowly... but surely get out of rats race....

The secret I am about to reveal is this.... 90 percent of millionaires... became millionaires in real estate.... doing real estate, doing something real.... vs doing something in the cloud....

So what I am trying to say is leverage your career to dive into commercial real estate.... and discover how you can make money being the leader that you want to be.... but being appreciated... and being your own boss... because if you don’t.... then someone else will... especially from other career tracks.

Doing commercial real estate is like learning cissp except... on another totally different level...completely different... yet the outcome of it all can help you feel more secure... financially...

Converge your mindset... from cissp into commercial real estate... and you will be glad you did.. Obviously you do not want to quit your job... but use it.... to get out of rats race...

I will show you how to learn commercial real estate... and will show you secrets... that can help you get close to your financial freedom goal.... so this way.. u do not feel insecure... about your career and yourself... and can one day generate income on passive basis doing something fun..

Visit StudyGuide.net/real-estate to learn more about Rome Wells commercial real estate secrets.... that I Rome Wells share with you...and just like you I am cyber security oriented person with cyber security mindset just like you... and not a mindset of some real estate guru sitting with their Ferrari’s somewhere in the garage....

My advice and secrets in commercial real estate will be a lot more fun to watch and read... especially for the new comers...

remember cissp should not be your goal.. it should be your intermediate goal... to get out of rats race... but do not confuse it with your actual goal... of gaining financial freedom and being your own boss.

If you are ready... to continue discovering commercial real estate secrets... and begin planning your future towards the next transitional stage of your life... in becoming commercial real estate investor, then visit StudyGuide.net/Real-Estate

Once again the reason I am telling u all this is simply because there is better ways of making money... vs simply having a full time job... and getting laid off one day.... or not being appreciated enough for your monumental achievements of being cissp certified or your efforts just because such efforts can not be easily quantified as it is the case with more real oriented professions.

What I just did above... I networked together concepts of cissp and concept of real estate... and cyber security... and pivoted you away from cyber security field into real estate....

The skill of being able to pivot mindsets... I describe in my book “The Secret Art of Pivoting” feel free to check out one of my google plus collections on this site... plus.google.com/+TutoringServices and see what other collections I have to help folks... discover themselves...

Also feel free to visit my Rome Wells profile on Quora..and follow real estate commercial secrets google plus collections also on this very same page plus.google.com/+TutoringServices

This is where I will be posting secrets... for how to position your self into commercial real estate business while still having a full time job and help you decide when to quit the job.

The goal here though is not to stop you from studying cissp... that I still want u to study and get certified and expand your mindset.... just remember the limits of your intermediate goals... do not go over board... unless pay is ridiculously better.. then where you at now.

The goal here is to expand your mindset and make you aware that there is something else out there that can help u make money for way less level of intelligence in comparison to cissp...

If u r cissp certified ifs literally in my opinion like holding PhD... super level of intelligence in my book... but... sometimes being too intelligent... makes it easy to oversee most basic things.... such as easier ways of making money for a lot less effort in comparison to what you maybe doing at your current job...

Note you may still love your job... I don’t disregard that either... I also love my job.. otherwise I wouldn’t be working in Corp job as IT Network Security Engineer.... but I am still working and didn’t quit my job...

The reason why is because... I am also in the same transitional stage as you... and being real... as real as you can get... and relevant to your mindset... hence join journey of Rome Wells to reaching financial freedom goal together...

First the goal was to teach you in becoming cissp certified with Rome Wells help and provide advice as shown here StudyGuide.net/cissp and ways to get certified, then it became this StudyGuide.net/Real-Estate and in the middle of it all it was even this StudyGuide.net/SDN (cloud networking etc)but in the midst of it all... I simply realized .... technology changes... yet houses still stay the same.... how it was 10 years ago to fix leaking faucet.... it still is the same today....

So why should you be learning... things that constantly outdated... with all the vulnerabilities out there.. etc.l in the world of cyber security... while other professions stay constant?

Doesn’t it mean you are putting too much load on your brain? Leaning constantly shit that is not needed due to rapid progress in technology and vulnerabilities that pop up here and there?

What I am trying to say is ... there are other ways to make money based on more constant type of business such as commercial real estate... vs doing something like working full time for the rest of your life and not being rewarded for your monumental achievements.

To get started with real estate commercial investment journey visit this page studyguide.net/deal-analyzer and learn how to analyze commercial real estate deals.

Do this as your homework. Don’t just sit there at home after work with remote control in your hand flipping tv channels. Take action. Don’t waist time. Take action. Take at least enough action to get your self to feel comfortable about getting your first commercial real estate property.

You are not dumb... why should you be getting paid same as other folks who put way less effort and generate cash flow on passive Basis without even having fraction of your level of intelligence.

That is just plain ridiculous. Change your mindset but still leave a bit of traces from your old self to be able to transition from cissp oriented folks into commercial real estate investors, syndicator and land lords.

Once again I am sharing this with cissp guys first... not my other thousands of audience.... from other professions yet as of Jan 19th 2018... so take action and listen to my advice...

I am just like you the guy of similar caliber as you someone who just happen to be in multiple circles someone who simply discovered the reality of it all and sharing it with you.

Hope my advice helps...

As mentioned in one of my real estate secrets make sure you learn math... when purchasing your multi family commercial real estate property, to reduce risk of investment and invest smartly.

Just like I tell thousands of folks to study smart, I am here telling you also to invest smart... know the numbers... and when I mean numbers I mean literally numbers... when analyzing commercial real estate property.

Know not just how to do math when it comes to calculating... potential profit but know how to count multiple variables that pop up in commercial real estate investment.

Know the terms, what every one of the terms mean.

For example cap rate, ARV, Heloc, cash flow, NOI, gross income etc... etc etc..

Know your goal.... such as how many units will you need to get as part of your commercial real estate deal to be able to pay off your expenses.

Draw that number.... on big sticker and place it on the wall...

Will it be 2 units.... will it be 3 units? Will it be 5? Or 16?

And remember commercial properties start with 5...

Determine how much cash flow you will need from each unit to get to your goal... and pivot yourself in the direction of that goal...

Don’t just sit there after your full time job and not do anything... learn... numbers.. learn how to calculate these numbers..to help you drive yourself in the direction of your goal...

Also remember continuously planning is great, but not taking action and planning to infinity is not great...being persistent and taking action in a reduced risk manner is what makes the numbers play out in your favor.

Remember world is big with over 7 billion people... where many of these people making strategic decisions... based on numbers.ll numbers don’t lie... 8 plus 8 will always be 16...(unless of course you look at the clock and operating in different mod). Learning how to read numbers... is the key...

Know how to calculate appreciation, know how your area where you are about to invest compares to other similar properties.. with relationship to appreciation... appraisal value... built in equity... of homes with similar level of caliber in emerging markets.

Know whether or not seller provides financing, know what is the actual reason for selling, know age of the house, know how close it is to the transit area and know the crime rate....

know your exit strategies, know how to structure the deal if you don’t have much money to extend investment share to your friends, or other investors who are willing to provide financing for you, know how to look at numbers with synergy in mind.... know how synergy can work for your deal....

Know how much it would cost to fix up property, and how much potential to fix it up for higher income, know job growth possibilities in the area, know the tenants in the existing property which you are thinking to get and know... that you are purchasing something not just based on emotion but based on facts.

Know these facts,, know these numbers,, know how to calculate them... for example expenses for things like, heating expenses, property management expenses (if you are not the one managing), know price of insurance, taxes, garbage fees, or any borough taxes or city taxes, or inspections that may happen in particular county that can cost you money.... knowing when the last time roof was fixed, or any major upgrade was made, know what’s behind the walls... end up with termites... or asbestos issues in older homes...

Know when to fix, hold or pull out, based on numbers. Never depend on factors such as increasing rent and hoping to make money, plan for the worth and be surprised by the best.

Know concepts of project management, know precisely what’s involved in purchasing property based on numbers....

What I just described is a tip of the iceberg... and what I just described is a small portion of what I teach. What I described is initial stage ... the stage you dive into when attempting to buy your first property.

Want to know what else is important to know when it comes to investing in commercial real estate? One major thing to know... is how not to get ripped off by expensive contractors... who tell you they will fix something and you end up throwing money in the window for nothing...

One way to reduce such level of risk... and end up not failing into a hole is by learning the actual trades... thats right... actual trades... meaning plumbing, HVAC, electrical, carpentry, masonry, from high level overview standpoint...

One way I do it... is simple... watch shit load of YouTube videos... in each field.. and another way... is to actually do it..

Now I am an engineer by profession... specifically cyber security engineer and not so savvy when it comes to holding a screw driver or being handy.... and yet.... I managed to still learn... the trades at high level... with minor practical experience....

For example... if you happen to have your existing single family home.... and some folks do... many folks do... you may be in the position of already being able to experiment on your own home...

For example by attempting to replace your own bathroom, heating, fan and light.... or for example attempting to fix your own HVAC... or for example fix your leaking faucets... or bleed out air out of the radiators to ensure that you still have heat during the beginning of the winter season...

Or perhaps you are already using life hack of living currently in a single family home but happen to have unfinished basement... and have time to figure out the strategy to remodel the basement, by fixing ceiling that perhaps cracking due to contract and expand... concept when it comes to the plaster ceiling in older homes.... this you many not even know about..

Or perhaps you have time to even build your own bathroom and your own shower install sump pump to prevent from your future basement tenant of being flooded, while simultaneously protecting your home.

Or perhaps you want to experiment with replacing your central air HVAC system... all that you can do and experiment on your home.. while saving money... and.. learning and preparing for becoming commercial real estate investor while simultaneously saving money and increasing value of your home....

Of course you may say Rome Wells you crazy how can you learn all these things and my response is...

If you have the reason to do it... then you can learn it... sure some tools will be expensive to get... but i have some life hacks as well that combine synergy in a way that... can help you save money on tools.. and show you some of my tools.. and show you how I go about remodeling my basement and finishing it up in my videos...

Note... it may seem a bit crazy how can a guy named Rome Wells who can barely hold a screw driver learn all these trades... without ever doing them... other than experimenting on his own home... and the answer is... just watch shit load of YouTube videos and learn how to measure and count and do math... and you can do it too.

Now what I just described is trade concepts... and told you that in order to minimize risk when it comes to investing into commercial real estate properties you must know math....

Well now combine what I just told you about math with knowing trades... and what will you get out of it? Well you will get out of it something that will give you peace of mind when buying commercial real estate property...

You will be able to sleep better when investing into commercial real estate... and will know.. that even if you have to repair everything yourself in worth case scenario if you completely screwed up the deal... and didn’t calculate and verify numbers... that at least you can repair property yourself.. or be able to hire contractors and know if they are bullshitting you when they are giving you the price on replacing your basement ceiling for example or not...

You will be able to quickly analyze properties from your very own brain powers ranging from your accumulated knowledge and understanding of different trades.... and from your understanding of numbers and math behind these numbers when it comes to commercial real estate analysis...

So in simple words... before you get the deal.. you must find the deal... and learn how to find the deal.. and analyze the deal based on numbers... verified by you... you must be like a detective... and do not make any assumption without verifying numbers first...

When analyzing the numbers in the beginning of the deal... you will be able to quickly tell, what’s good, what’s bad ... and what’s plain ugly... and whether or not it’s worth the well calculated risk...

Knowing the math behind the numbers and the patterns that relate to your particular property.... in relationship to why it makes money... and doing your due diligence and ensuring that you don’t end up getting a lemon property.... is precisely why you must learn tons and tons of information about every possible thing that may go wrong...

Remember when you buy real estate investment it’s the biggest investment of your life... if you do it wrong... then multi family purchase will not be forgiving as its is the case with single home properties...

Therefore.... know the math.... and know it...from the stand point of literally fixing something....

Do this for your homework.... go on YouTube and search for the list of materials you will need to finish unfinished 1000sf basement..... see how much material.. and then see how... bathroom in the basement is done... what tools to have... what materials to buy.... how much money it would take to have a contractor do it...and learn.... the trades... see how basement gets finished....

Discover what.... materials are cheapest and why.... discover how to save money on heat... on water... on electricity... and start paying attention to the numbers......

So this way when you see the deal... your mind becomes like artificial intelligence machine.... and quickly connect the dots....

And remember... there is actual reasons why investors particularly look for specific cap rate.. etc... actual insane reasons... reasons that you don’t obviously see.. or may feel like you do know the reason... when in reality you don’t...

Remember... the more folks you connect with... and share your deal with them to pick their brain, to help you analyze it the less risk you place your self into... hence this brings me to my other commercial real estate secret.... which is... learn how to network... find out how in next posts.

Also I happen to be not insane enough... to hold all the numbers in my head... I use special calculator that calculates for me variety types of scenarios for a particular deal.. and let’s me modify them... based on my version of what I think.... the property will worth....

If interested in learning about the secret calc that helps you discover if the deal is worth it or not, feel free to visit StudyGuide.net/real-estate and simply message me from the bottom right corner of the chat window and ask me to share free ebook and link to calculator that I use when it comes to evaluating commercial real estate deals.

This calculator will help you reduce risk, but... to use it... you must learn the videos that also come with the calculator.. and pay attention to my blog... since reading my blog in combination of using this calculator... will help you learn how to copy other successful people in commercial real estate, and can help you provide peace of mind that you are on the right path, plus help you do math easily and structure your deals to help you convince private landers to give you money, and therefore make it possible for you to get closer to your financial freedom goal.

After all I am sure you are a bright minded person.... and want to get out of rats game and quit your job when you are ready....

Plus.... with combination of knowing math, knowing how to network and knowing how to copy others.... can help you get closer to financial goal.. just don’t get stuck... planning forever... or overdoing it.... know your limits...

Hope my advice helps.

Rome Wells
