Don DeRosaHave you ever felt that you are unorganized? Unfocused? Easily distracted? Did you realize that the average person wastes, on average, 55 minutes every day looking for misplaced or lost

As a nation, Americans waste nine million hours per day by being unorganized and losing stuff. Here is a simple question. What does your desk look like? Do you have papers stacked high and scattered? Are you afraid to actually file something important away for fear you might never see it again? Do you start your day or year for that matter with the best intentions of accomplishing your goals only to have life de-rail you and then look back at the end of the year disappointed that you didn’t reach your goals AGAIN.

My name is Don DeRosa and on December 12th, I’m going to show you how to fix all of that and get organized, get focused and prioritized like a Pro. In this presentation I am going to introduce you the three reasons businesses fail and how to avoid them.

We will discuss how to set goals, when and how you can control the things going on around you and when it is time to move on. Why it is so important to set SMART goals and then how to prioritize them into actionable items.

We will also discuss what I call unifying principals (virtues) and how that plays a significant role in how you act and ultimately who you are. If you have never been to a time management seminar before this might just be the best seminar you attend all year. Here are a few things you will learn:

  • Three reasons businesses fail
  • Why it’s important to take action and stay focused
  • How to avoid being a dog chasing six rabbits and never catching anything
  • What are the five conditions of controlling events
  • 10 common characteristics of highly successful people
  • What is Congruity and why is it so important for your success
  • How to set priorities
  • How to organize your self using simple tools
  • Old school (paper and pen vs electronic)
  • Eight questions to help PRIORITIZE your daily actions
  • Why it’s CRITICAL to have SMART goals and not just a daily checklist

These are just a few of the thing you will learn at this exciting one of kind event. If you fall prey to any of these dream crushers then you owe it to yourself to attend. This event very well could change your whole life.

RSVP NOW and join us at Tampa REIA on Thursday, December 12th at Tampa REIA from 5PM to 9PM at the Ramada Tampa Westshore located at 1200 N Westshore Blvd, Tampa, FL to make the New Year and the New Decade your BEST EVER! We look forward to seeing you there!

Meeting Before the Meeting
The High Tech Home Buyers Creative Deal Makers Subgroup
Air Bnb & Short-Term Rental Market
How to Generate 2 to 3 Times the Monthly Cash Flow of a Regular Rental Property!
with Richard Munroe

There is an exciting new shared economy that has created a huge opportunity in real estate to increase your returns and profit, two to three times the regular rental amount of a traditional lease.

The short-term rental model keeps your property in better shape with the average stay of each guest limited to 3-4 days with professional cleanings and inspections in between each stay.

The cycle of evictions and minor rehabs in between each tenant is no longer an issue, along with, less wear and tear on the appliances, as most guests are eating out at local restaurants.

Richard MunroeMy name is Richard Munroe. On Thursday, December 12th at 5PM Sharp BEFORE the Tampa REIA Event, I will cover how to approach the market analysis and develop a conservative estimate of the short-term rental revenue based on the average nightly rate and the monthly occupancy percentage.

One of the main reasons for this industry’s growth and success is the Air Bnb platform. I will provide an introduction and overview of the platform from a host’s perspective. We will also cover the multiple ways to get started and how to navigate through all the new ordinances and laws on the city, county and state level.

Join me and we will discuss…

  • Shared Economy
  • Market Analysis
  • Air BNB Platform
  • Property Options
  • Legislative Efforts
  • Answers to your questions
  • And more!

RSVP NOW and come learn more about the lucrative opportunity that short-term rentals have to offer!
