A Trip to Portland

By |April 18th, 2017|

Ever since I started following Tim Ferriss and watching the Twilight movies I have been fascinated by the west coast. Tim always talks about San Francisco and the beautiful forest scenes in Twilight were filmed in Washington. (Like when Edward shows Bella how he sparkles in the light:) While I know these are completely separate [...]

Top 11 Lessons I Learned in 2016

By |November 9th, 2016|

Lesson 1: Start Now Two simple words, yet a lesson that took me a year to really get. We all talk about how long or hard something will take but instead if we just got started now, we would be that much closer to what we want! I spent 3 days at the Brad Sugars’ [...]

Wouldn’t It Be Cool To Own A Castle?

By |June 28th, 2016|

That was one of the many questions I asked myself after a conference I went to back in November 2015. This post is not really about owning a castle, but rather my thought process and how I went from initially wanting to get into real estate... to jumping to castle hotels... and then to real [...]

By |February 26th, 2016|

It's a calm overcast morning here on Split's Riva. I'm onto my second kava Americana, which is helping to wake me up and keep me warm. Burra came through yesterday, blowing all of Jugo's debris out to sea so we are left with a clear head and slightly cooler temps.   It's hard to believe [...]
