About Webkab
Joined June 2010
My name is Bill and live in the Palatine Il. with my wife Tina. Palatine is a suburb of Chicago. I've been selling real estate in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago for many years. I've sold lots of home over the years and recently have started a large investor group where we meet once a month at my office. There are usually about 15 to 30 people who show up at the meetings. I started this group from the people I have met helping the Rich Dad Poor Dad investor groups when they meet here in my area. The instructors call on me to set up their house tours for the students and also ask that I talk to them about working with real estate agents in their specific market areas
Due to the recent Banking situtations and the slow up of home buying I decided to develop a business on line that would bring in a steady, resudial income for myself and my wife Tina. So here I am and would look for help from anyone out there.
I read about how people are making lots of money each day and I want to get there.
Interests are in:
Investment Real Estate
Cooking
Helping My Brother Sell Guitars on Line
Expert Skier
Golf
Scuba Diving
Family
I look forward to hearing from any of you soon.
Sincerely,
Bill Kabat better know in the forum as webkab

Hey Webkab,
Yeah, I took all the courses in real estate sales. Didn't do anything with them but there it is. Few days ago I jumped on board with premium. I need to study and see about this endeavor. Putting the time into this one I hope will do it. Tried many things but this is more of a communicating community of friends. Better idea to help each other out instead of standing on a web island throwing stones. Thanks for the follow. Scotty from Cleveland, Ohio

Hi Bill, Thanks for the follow. I read with great interest your real estate investment group. It just so happens I have a similar group here in Carlsbad, California. I started all of them on my most successful Online business. All 19 of them do it part time, only takes a few minutes first thing in the morning. Are you interesest for you group? Happy Holidays! PS Most of them make more money Online than they do with our Real Estate biz.

Your are right on. I see these people coming out of the Rich Dad Poor Dad classes the spending another $10,000 for mentoring and after all is said and done shelving every thing they get from these classes and mentoring programs. Only a few small percentage of the so called investors do anything with these programs. Sad but True. Yes, they would make more money on line.

Thanks for your concern. Sales are up but prices are still down. Illinois is in the top 5 states with around 45% of the shadow inventory still out there. This is keeping our prices down. At last our prices were -2.7%. Learn here at WA and you will began to move forward and create an income for yourself. MUCH SUCCESS.

Hello Bill...I am just starting to network here. I am from Gettysburg, Pa...not nearly as illustrious a Chicago...a blib on the map really. Let me see...I have been working on developing residual income beyond the "work-for-hire" life of an artist. Aso, cannot work behind a computer doing design work for anyone else anymore. So, I am applying my knowledge of art, printing, and publishing to write my own books and get into the ebook era. We are at the beginning, like the dotcom and I am uniquely qualified for this.
What do I like...music, art, horses, kids (have to, don't have a choice there!), ummmm and writing. Grew up in a family of nine hard headed, stubborn, entrepreneurial types...my Dad was a Marine...wreaked havoc on my dating life. We farm, drive carriages in Gettysburg. I rebelled, went to art school and became a musician for nine years, toured the country, came back, went to massage school, settled down. Now, I am married with two kids. But, the years of being self reliant have left their mark and I am pursuing internet business...thanks for following me and stay in touch.

I know where Gettysburg is. About illustrious Chicago, maybe but living here is very expensive because of all the taxes they hit us with. Thinking of moving to New Mexico. Anyway, If you're not interested in graphics for others then you can develop a website or sites that will create some income. Right now the big thing is Offline Marketing but then you are doing the art work again for people unless you outsource it and just sell your products to help promote small business in your area. I agree, just setting up sites and marketing them properly is easier but the other stuff make more money. Anyway, just let me know if you need any help. Big suggestion here is to take the training they offer here at WA. It good and will get you started in the right direction. MUCH SUCCESS.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the follow!

It appears you practice what Robert K preaches in his Rich dad books.

I rally enjoy his books, they really got me to rethink my entire wealth strategy and gave me hope.

I want to start investing in real estate and I want to build websites as a business to earn residual income.

Do you actually work as a coach for Rich Dad? I would certainly appreciate an unbiased opinion.

Take Care.

Allan

Rich Dad Poor Dad training is very good. Several students making a living from the training they give to people. I was setting up the bus tours for the wholesale classes here in Chicago. They have since changed the bus tours. I also work with some of their mentors when they are here in Chicago. They will call me and meet with and work with their students.

Actually, your idea of investing and doing website is a good one and one that I do also. There's lots of local business out there that need the expertise of online offline marketing and I do go after that also. Soooo, it keeps me very busy but still find time to help others as well.

Hang in there and don't let all of this become overwhelming. MUCH SUCCESS.

Took the time to read your bio. You kinda look like a cowboy in a way. My wife and I are considering moving from the Chicago area to New Mexico so when we do that I probably start looking like one also. You have some interesting interests and good possible niches.

First of all your soccer background can offer some interesting possibilities. Since it a growing interest here I would niche down from soccer and find something within that category that these soccer people are interested in and build around that. You can use the tools here at WA to start your search. Remember, if you start with a broader category your chance of busting into that are thinner than if you niche down and find a smaller niche where you can become dominant in and make some money.

Second, your motorcycle interests can be very exciting. I found a shop here in my area that sells leather goods especially for the motorcycle group.

I'm thinking of going over there and talking with them about becoming an affiliate to sell there goods.

I did that for my bike saddles. I am a prostate cancer survivor and riding a traditional bike saddle was giving me some problems so I found a saddle that I could ride on, a no pressure saddle. So, I thought that I had a niche market for these saddles called the company up and they let me become a dealer. I now sell these saddles all over the world.

It's just that easy. Building a website using wordpress is also easy but there is a learning curve there and if you need any help let me know.

My solid advise is to do the training here no matter what. It's worth it, you will learn and it will take you forward with you endeavors.

MUCH SUCCESS.

steveww Premium
Thanks. Appreciate you taking the time and the advice. May lean on you for some more if you don't mind.

I am not a cowboy, although my grandfather was. (We both agreed our favorite sea food was to wade a cow out knee deep, bring it in, butcher and cook.) Just grew up a country boy in rural east Texas.

Interesting you are moving to New Mexico. I have a friend out there who cowboy's part time along with other things. He also has a masters degree in chemistry. Has a pistachio nut farm and also works part time for the national forest service. At times he puts on the smokey the Bear Costume for special events. I like knowing that Smokey the Bear is one of my best friends. He lives at various times of the year in Almagordo, Las Cruces, and Mayhill.

Again thanks for the advice and if you don't mind I'd like to get back with you on it after I mull it over.

Best wishes and God Bless.
