Especially when the housing market crashes and Countrywide was your mortgage lender.

This hits dead on point.

I’m a loan officer…I do mortgages for a direct lender. Everything…if its residential(other than mobile), I do it.

Now that being said, it is an extremely GOOD company otherwise I wouldn’t have been there for 8 years. I do hold myself to a very high ethical standard.(It should really be a normal ethical standard IMO)

I’ll VERY often analyze someone’s opinion that they should purchase a certain home(with Termite damage, home inspection issues, etc..) or refinance for a benefit and I’ll tell them that are better off where they are if there is not a glaring benefit. After I’ve made sure they are VERY aware of things the realtors might not have mentioned if they want to proceed, I’ve done my bit to educate them and then help them accomplish their goals knowing they are educated about their decision.

Here’s the thing though…I’m not the only loan officer in the company….My face on the advertisement, another LO screws up or just does a bad job, they see the ad with my face and then the negative association is there………Again, this has been analyzed and assessed and our company is sound in the leadership so I feel OK about it, but the potential is there no matter how small.

I have no idea what business your in, but there are potential pitfalls with publicity. Do your research and ask if there is any group that may be offended and can this celebrity walk on water? People can be strange and some are looking for a fight.

I remember a substantial contribution we made to a top rated local charity and the crap we were handed as a few local mouths thought their choices were better. No good deed goes unpunished. Swamp

Well if its something you want to do then do it.

All the rest of what you said is vague. I don’t know what you do for a living or what you would be advertising so my opinion on the rest wouldn’t matter.

Now if you are making a commercial about prepping and you are unsure about exposure, then I would reconsider. Do you want people to know your name or even where you live and prep?

Ask Southernprepper1. Are you self confident as he is? Then not a problem.

I really wasn’t going to post but I just noticed it is my 300th since joining….lol…Whoopee, I know. :rofl:

It is actually a big day for me in business and am committed and moving forward but would still be curious to hear opinions even if they’re “Post decision/commitment”….

I have been chosen by my company as the only employee(out of 50 or so) to be featured in a commercial that we are filming with a celebrity spokesperson (I would say he’s a “A” celebrity in the sports world, “C” celebrity in general) where I’ll have a pretty significant speaking part endorsing our company and as an 8 year employee(since the start of the company) with probably the most 5 star reviews while never getting a complaint…(yes, I’m bragging a bit here, but I’ve worked very hard for this reputation in an industry that is FILLED with scam artist…lol…I don’t know of another single person in my industry that can say this but I’m sure they exist)

I pulled out of filming originally as I really wasn’t comfortable with the exposure it would bring to me even though my business and income is potentially going to soar with this opportunity….The company owners aggressively kept asking me to reconsider even with my reservations.(leaving the company in the future, co-worker animosity, attaching my face to a product publically, etc..) My reputation is already established and I do get extra clients from this weekly from it already.

So, long story short, most likely you guys will never see it, but a lot of people in the local markets will…. (CA, but currently expanding to other states as well)

What do you all think the negative possible repercussions could be?…
The positive will be the business influx and I figure with me being specifically featured along with the celib, that I’d probably be getting a direct 10-15% of new clients asking for me specifically by name.

I think I’ve thought long and hard of possible negatives and addressed them for myself, but second opinions are always welcome for anything I’ve might have missed.
(BTW…I should have mentioned in covering my (Censored word. I’m a potty mouth) after initially pulling out I negotiated the ability to pull my image from any future airings if after 6 months initial advertising campaign I don’t like the representation it brings me as part of the final decision to proceed…Think I’ve covered all my bases)

Anyways…wish me luck, say a prayer, light an incense, whatever…..Thanks for any opinions in advance. :thumbup:

I bank in a small town (less than 2k people). It is not uncommon to see good coins surface when times get rough or people pass on. The bank recently called me when a guy brought in over 300 rolls of old cents and nickels. They were all from the forties and fifties. I called the guy up and he had more he needed to roll. He brought them over and we ran them through my counter and we are both happy. An uncle had bit the dust and he had dozens of jars of coins. I bought the silver at spot, the rest at face, and the majority of the contents of the house!

Some may be stolen, but most are because people are stupid, lazy, or don’t care. A fact that I am very pleased with! How else would a picker like myself, make a nice sideline buying vintage and antique items for a few cents on the dollar? It only takes a minute to research anything if you have a smartphone, but few people bother! Even if you don’t have a local market there is E-bay! Swamp

GPS product helps us a in our lives, GPS jammer also. As technology develops, the GPS devices play an important in our lives. It helps to find out the locations of people who lost his way in mountain and in the sea. It is an important part in navigation system. Actually it is more important for military weapons. Without the GPS system, most of our missiles can not work, most of our warships can not sail, most of our submarines can not find its way. An example of the use of the GPS system for our common people is, if an old man lost his way, we could easily find him if he carry a cell phone with GPS system.

But when we invent a good technology, it always could be used by bad guys to against us. How does a GPS device help us? By locating us. Yes, the problem comes, it could easiy tracking down our locations, which could be dangerous if our locations are exposed to illegal guys. Is it easy or difficult to expose our locations? The answer is very easy. A bad guy could easy know our locations only if he put a very small GPS device in our cars or evey in our handbags. In that case, we will be spying all the time, where we are, what we do. How to keep us in safe from that kind of illegal tracking? We could find a way to cut off GPS signal, so the GPS devices can not receive signal, thus can not work. To do this, we need a GPS jammer. The GPS jammer is a kind of any GPS technology device, it could issue a stronger signal in the same frequency to cover the GPS signal. When a GPS jammer is turned on, it could affect a certain range, in that range, all GPS devices could not receive or send out signal, thus can not work.

Is it difficult to operate a GPS jammer? No, it is very easy to operate a GPS jammer, all you need to do is turning it on to make it work, and turning it off to stop the use. Will it do any harm to our GPS devices or other electronic devices? No, the GPS jammer only cuts off the GPS signal, it will not hurt any electronic device including the GPS devices. After the GPS jammer is turned off, all GPS jammers will come back to work in a minute. Will the GPS jammer affect the use of normal GPS devices? NO, you need to calculate what you need. For example, if you need to protect your car location from illegal tracking, you need only a mini GPS jammer that could jam only 2 to 10 meters. Before you buy a GPS jammer, you need to calculate how long you need to jam and buy a corresponding GPS jammer. Will it agains the law to use a GPS jammer? You need to check the law of your own country. Different countries have different rule about the GPS jammmers. In some countries the GPS jammer is allowed to be used, while in some countries it is illegal to buy or use a GPS jammer.

How to buy a GPS blocker? Please come to our websie, here you could see many GPS jammers. You could select the right one that you need, pay online and waiting the parcel to come.

Sounds like a game for an expert! Everyone else is a sucker! Just like a coin collection I recently picked up. All from a well known national dealer and forty cents on the dollar is the best I could offer. I will end up making five to ten percent and they will end up “eventually” at another national dealer offering a great investment! Swamp

I literally just had a friend hit me up on a HUGE opportunity 20 min ago….Long story short, he got taken.

Bitcoin…Investing…DOUBLE your money in 90 days.(insert “Facepalm” emoticon here)

With 1 simple search I figured out it was ponzi scheme…..HOW on Gods green earth do you fall for this poo poo?

Now I have to be the one to tell a good friend that the investment he is selling and has money invested in is a scam…..WTF!

DO YOUR RESEARCH PEOPLE!!!!!……(sorry, just tired of this poo poo)

Here’s a tip…. a 5% ROI is a good investment. It’s great actually…..anyone offering 10%-15% is likely hiding massive risk somewhere. 50%-100%..They’re full of poo poo. They wouldn’t offer it if it was real. They’d keep the secret to themselves and invest accordingly.

I cant believe I have to now tell him this and have him get mad at me. That’s the way it always works…

It can be manipulated or influenced by larger entities just like today’s currencies (ref:PBOC and SEC in link above).

It’s electronic and even easier for a nation state to freeze or seize assets, just like a bank account. (ref:PBOC in link above)

Governments can shut down exchanges or shutdown or isolate Internet traffic if/when/where they choose.

It’s more imaginary than physical fiat paper and coin currency.

In following several linked articles this one is interesting too. China plays a big role in Bitcoin.

In my mind anything we can save or spend anonymously without big brother dipping into it is a great thing. If you have extra cash laying around why not put some into crypto. Best case it just keeps on going up like it has been lately, Worst case it’s worth whatever cash you put into it. It might fluctuate a bit but based on its track record so far it’s a fairly safe bet it won’t lose value. And since it’s not tied to any government, economy or paper currency its not likely to be negatively affected by inflation like cash. As for after a shtf scenario we all know cash is going to be worthless after day 5 but crypto has the potential to retain its value, it may or may not be accessible after shtf depending on your preferred scenario but because it’s a global currency if shtf is localized to say just the northern hemisphere then in theory your crypto still has value on half the planet. And it is possible to get some limited Internet access over a ham radio. I don’t know if I would go throwing thousands into it maybe a thousand if you plan on spending and using your crypto cash for some purchases as well. I’m not an expert by any means but I’ve been looking into crypto for awhile. I would definitely think of whatever cash you convert into crypto as a long term conversion because converting back to cash can raise alot red flags for the irs, or even the fbi these days depending on the method and the amount your converting. It’s not like your debit card where if you want to buy something online you just go to the bank and deposit cash then change your mind and withdraw it the next day. It’s more like buying a foreign currency to buy things in another country it’s easier to only convert what your planing to spend or have on hand whIle traveling. Now for real world transactions say using crypto to pay a contractor or buy car on Craigslist . It’s possible as long as the other party uses crypto this limits the amount of people you can do business with since crypto simply isn’t as widely used as cash. And again if your thinking of using it like a debit card for gas grocery cable bill it doesn’t work that way unless your gas station is willing to be paid in crypto and that’s not going to happen any time soon. As for the wallet security I really don’t know I’m debating a hard key myself but haven’t looked into what happens if it gets damaged. I’m still in my research stage for alot of this crypto stuff I’ve only put in a couple hundred just to test the waters but this is what I’ve learned so far, hope it’s helpful……

Is anyone out there uesing bitcoin or other cryptocurrency as a long term investment strategy? I’ve heard lots of good things about cryptocurrencies. The biggest advantages being it’s an amenity from our over reaching government. It’s supposed to be better than saving up cash money because you can spend it online and unlike cash it appears to acutely gain value over time. I’m considering investing sevral thousand in cryptocurrency. Has anyone eles tried this investment strategy? Is there a specific cryptocurrency that is doing better than others or should we invest a percentage in each of the different the cryptocurrencys? How versatile is cryptocurrency? Is it mainstream enough where you can buy most things online with it, is anyone uesing cryptocurrency as a payment method off line in the real world? Also any thoughts on weather a virtual wallet or hard keyed wallet is a better security strategy. A hard keyed wallet is basically a removable USB drive you store all your cryptocurrency on, but what if you damage or lose the drive is there away to recover the funds stored on it? How hard is it to cash out cryptocurrency for cash or precious metals and is that even something that should be done or is better just to spend that cryptocurrency on other Goods?

There are down falls to this method, if one of the kids gets in a bad accident and they are sued for big time money, well you know the rest. If they would separate from their spouse, not a problem, that was put in the memorandum, inlaw doesn’t count and they signed paperwork to that affect.

Another tool we can use to manage our estate with much lower risk to all of us from law suits, government confiscation, and such is to use Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) to own your property. If you have multiple members (the kids) it becomes much more difficult for those assets to be stolen by the government.

It is an EXCELLENT tool……. be aware though I know of no lenders(in the wholesale market) that will refinance any residential residence held in LLC anymore….I run into that problem on a few of my high profile clients in the entertainment industry.

If you refi or purchase, and then put back into LLC and they notice, they WILL demand removal out of LLC again or order demand of payment in full…This is in CA properties, but with National lenders…..I am NOT an expert in this area but see it happen quite a lot…..Just a footnote to make sure you research this option for your specific lender and state.

I have some investments in the market but I like physical assets as well and not just PM’s/cash/lead/guns. Of coarse, that means you need a space to store your stuff as well. Things like equipment, tools, classic cars, antiques, or any usable or desirable items qualify as investments. Anything that can be sold for more than what you paid for it qualifies in my book. The best part about some of these things is that you can enjoy them before selling them if you so choose. The worst part is that you may have to pay for upkeep, insurance, storage, etc. Heck, I even have comic books and other unique collectibles that some may look at and never know the value of. Of coarse if you’re thinking “prepper investments” then you might want to focus more on food, water catchment/purification systems, hand tools, seeds, weapons, and that kind of thing. Even those things could be considered investments if you can sell them for more than what you bought them for. That’s why garage sales are so cool….you can get a bunch of “prepper” stuff on the cheap. At this point, I’m no expert on selling stuff…..I just don’t sell at this point in my life, but several years from now that may change.

I would suggest you gravitate toward the things you really know about. I have a friend that buys and sells tractors and similar equipment. He’ll buy something that doesn’t work quite right and then fix it and sell it for a nice profit. It makes a nice secondary income for him that is all cash. It gives him something to do in his spare time that he enjoys and he makes a buck to boot. A win-win! I also know someone who buys and sells vintage video games. He doesn’t make a ton of money at it but he knows his stuff and he enjoys doing it. Just something else to consider……

Correct me if I am wrong, but I will assume you are talking about less than 10 thousand dollars. It started with a friend wanting a sideline business and he started selling at flea markets on weekends. He was struggling until I got him to sell vintage tools from my collection. He now makes a very decent profit on Prepper Related Tools and vintage items, things that are worthwhile in our mindset even if they don’t sell now.

It takes time to know what sells to collectors and what to pay. I doubt you can go too far wrong by staying with useful vintage items and never paying more the fifty cents on the dollar. I will not post details, but I know dealers (they are always picking my leftovers) making more than most people working full time jobs. Once you get to know the real collectors (those with money) there is no limit. I work the collector level as that is what I enjoy, have time for, and can afford, but there is money to be made at all levels.

Watch some episodes of American Pickers! Yes there are old oil cans and signs worth thousands of dollars each and that is just the tip of the iceberg! The best part – almost everyone deals in cash! You might also wish to visit a few gun shows for some ideas. This is a knowledge game, the more you learn – the more you earn. Swamp
