QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.” ~Iyanla Vanzant
One of the questions that we get a lot is why is real estate a good investment versus stocks or bank CD’s or any number of other investment vehicles available. In this edition, we go over some reasons why real estate, in our opinion, leaves other investments in the dust as far as the number of benefits or advantages are concerned.
Also, as I mentioned last week, whenever I come across something new that I think might be a benefit to our subscribers, I want to make sure that I include it so I recently came across an organization that was born out of the George Floyd situation to help low to mid-income urban dwellers purchase homes. It’s called The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA). Check it out under “Suggested Materials”.
Lastly, as I watched a very powerful storm through my window last week, the strong invisible but real wind that was knocking over trees and throwing large debris around like it was nothing, reminded me that this was the same unseen energy we possess within us which has as much power to affect circumstances in our lives as the wind outside if we learn to tap into it. This is what I talk about in this week’s “Inspiration Corner”.
I hope you guys enjoy the information we provide weekly and if there’s a topic you’d like to know more about, please drop us a line through the Contact Us page on our website and let us know.
We’re always happy to hear from you!

I was watching a video podcast last week and the subject was on Quantum Physics, a science I’ve always been fascinated with. The interviewee goes on to say that many people are turned off by the term ‘quantum physics’ because they immediately think its something difficult but its not. She explained that Quantum Physics was just the study of the stuff that makes up the Universe, and in its most basic, primordial form, it was just energy or vibration.
She went on to explain that everything is made of this vibration including US so even though we “appear” to be made of solid matter, there really is no such thing, which has been scientifically proven. She explained it even further but it made me pause to wonder why the majority of us as humans (even me at times) find it so hard to accept and believe that we are vibrational beings. I guess it’s because we can’t see it, although, it explains so easily how our thoughts attract what they attract.
Vibration is the same as energy and energy attracts like energy. So, what we focus our thoughts on is what we attract because that is what our “vibration” is emitting. This is why it’s so important to watch your thoughts and to try to focus on the things you want to attract and not the things that you don’t. It really hit home with me this past week as I sat in the midst of a storm that hit my area pretty hard and I heard the wind howling outside my house. Like vibration, I couldn’t see it other than the trees blowing and debris tumbling down the street but I, definitely, saw the results of it and I sure knew it was there!
So just like the wind, our vibration is always there and if you want to see what you are emitting, just watch what comes into your life on a regular basis. If you like it, keep doing what you’re doing, but if you don’t, change it. Begin to watch your thoughts and emotions and begin to deliberately offer the vibration of what you want to see show up in your life and before long, it will!
The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”) is a non-profit, community advocacy and homeownership organization. NACA’s primary goal is to build strong, healthy neighborhoods in urban and rural areas nationwide through affordable homeownership. NACA has made the dream of homeownership a reality for thousands of working people by counseling them honestly and effectively, enabling even those with poor credit to purchase a home or modify their predatory loan with far better terms than those provided even in the prime market.
