On vacation in Hawaii, my step- mom, Sandy,
called a café to make reservations for 7 p.m. Checking her book,
the cheery young hostess said, "I'm sorry, all we have is 6:45. Would you like that?"
"That's fine," Sandy said.
"Okay," the woman confirmed. Then she added,
"Just be advised you may have to wait 15 minutes for your table."

Capital Gains

     

One of the ‘pleasant’ dilemmas that my investor
partners face when we cash out of a deal is what
to do with their PROFITS.

On one hand, it’s tempting to take the cash and
buy a new car, boat, vacation, or other ‘doodad’
(as Robert Kiyosaki calls them in his book Rich
Dad, Poor Dad).

On the other hand, it usually makes a LOT more
sense to use those profits to buy more income-
producing real estate.  That’s called “re-investment”.
