 Special Announcements

Special Announcement #1

I am still waiting for a few details regarding the 'fast cash' program. As soon as I have them I will post new instructions for participation at this site:
I will also send an email update to all who are on the fast cash list. However, because of data corruption from Getresponse (our previous mailer) and/or if you are not on the fast cash list at all please see this above link over the next 2-3 business days as I expect to have everything we need very soon.

Special Announcement #2

Great news! We finally have a launch date for Auto Trade.
It will be July 11.
Again, I will send out an update to everyone who has pre-registered at:

This program will go viral quickly so if you are interested and you have not pre-registered you should do so soon. And watch for my update Saturday to be emailed and then posted at this link.

Today's quotes

The first from Jeff T, my quote master:

Greatest challenge

And here's one from Dee F. I think you will enjoy as I did:

I need your help

Several projects are finally coming together and it seems all of them rather quickly.

I simply cannot keep up with the phone calls and volume of email I receive daily and stay on top of the completion of these projects.

So please be kind enough if you wish to speak with me and you have my phone number, please send an email first "detailing"  what it is you wish to talk about, along with your phone number, and please give me the option of emailing you back a response if appropriate or calling you when I can.

If you do call without an email first, 90%+ of the time I just will not be able to pick up the phone so if you get my voicemail again please tell me what it's about as I just don't have time to return calls to just a phone number on my caller ID to find out why the call.

I hope you understand I have to get my work done, and your help will help me be more efficient in communicating with you. Thank you very much.


Wednesday I announced I would have the entire recording transcribed for my hearing impaired loan partners.

As you read it please keep in mind the transcription is not a 'perfect' rendition but should be understandable.

Volatile crypto marketplace

As you may know, digital coins, stock market commodities, you name it, everything is being clobbered in the marketplace right now. Several partners have asked if the decline in crypto currencies has any negative effect on us.

The answer is actually counter intuitive. The declining markets are not impacting our deal negatively.  In fact, for several reasons I may cover at a later date if necessary, this decline has had a very positive impact.

Our deal

You may recall Wednesday's update I mentioned our seller to be attending the Board member's meeting that night. And I emphasized 'original board.'  So you may realize these are the same people that have been involved with us from the beginning and not some new group.

Anyways it was resolved, and this is great news: The seller will be meeting with the buyers and a few other players, lawyers, etc., in an undisclosed location next week.

When our seller informed my partner Garry of this just yesterday morning, he said and I quote, "Tell Mike, the purpose of meeting everyone in xxxxx city is to begin the closing process."

Now don't get overly excited about this. As you know from the recording SO MUCH has changed in this deal.

And that's always been subject to change, sometimes hourly if not daily, and almost at least something new every week. Part of my job is to stay on top of all this so I may report to you the salient items necessary.

So understand this: We have more companies being involved in the sale now than originally. We have technologies that have evolved over time. We have a new buyer replacing one of the previous buyers who was forced to drop out for personal and very serious reasons.

So the words 'begin the closing process' mean this... It will still take time!  Although it is not like starting from scratch however it does involved as I'm sure you can imagine by now, putting a lot of the pieces back together.

Think of it this way... It is more like adding all the "new" pieces of the puzzle back into the deal rather than starting all over.

As you know in the past when I have used words like 'anticipated', 'expected', or 'projected' for a closing date and that closing date did not happen, I got the you-know-what kicked out of me by some people who somehow took those words to mean 'guaranteed closing'. So I have learned my lesson, I will no longer give a 'projected' closing date.

I will wait until that day when the seller says 'Hey, we are closing next week on xx day."

This said, and I really need to stress this, beginning the closing process is a very positive thing to announce however the finish line will not be overnight.

All in all, this is wonderful terrific great news and I'm very excited!

For the first time in months I slept like a baby last night. It was like two tons of stress were lifted from my back. Until next Wednesday.
