Journey to a Million

December 15, 2006

I just discovered an interesting new blog run by a fellow Latter-day Saint. It is entitled “Journey to a Million” and the author, Ryan, invites us to “[f]ollow the journey and help or learn along the way” as he attempts to make a million dollars starting with nothing from age 21 to 30. Will he make it??

It seems like his efforts are concentrated on “flipping” Real Estate. Has anyone in the ‘Nacle actually succeeded in doing this? Maybe he should also think about giving away a free handgun with every purchase

It is an interesting notion to be sure.

Free Security System with Home Purchase!

A Houston Real Estate Agent is offering an innovative buyer incentive to entice people to purchase new homes- a free handgun. Here is a squib:

Julie Upton, a Houston-area real estate agent, spurned traditional buyer incentives like free gasoline cards or home improvement store gift certificates.

Instead, she placed an advertisement offering a pistol with the purchase of any home worth at least $150,000.

To be fair, the offer is only available to law enforcement personnel. Still, it’s an interesting idea. I say- only in Texas!! ­čÖé
