Black Friday Lease Purchase & GUTS Sale

Miss Youse guys; it's been a while. Hope everyone is doing well.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Claudia and I will be back to San Diego in a few weeks and will schedule some free mini seminars at our favorite Pizza place. We just returned from a NYC and North Carolina trip on some deals and speaking gigs. Visited my daughter working at the Apple store on 5th Avenue. What a hoot:-)

Gonna spend some time up in the mountains in Winter Park, Colorado thru the holidays. Give me a call if you ever want to do some skiing or throw some snowballs.

Just signed up for the Carlsbad Marathon in Jan 2013. Do we have any runners in our group? It keeps me young, I can still fit into my jeans;-) and I can drink arrogant bastard beer and eat copious amounts of pizza!

Set a new personal best at the recent Silver Strand half Marathon; probably one of the best races I ever attended. Had a blast running with friends.

I will also have some new books for you, too (advance copy excerpts to Happy Hour Subscribers), The Lease Purchase Revolution© and A New Business Novel with Max the Mentor "The Gauntlet". Also working on some new live cold call videos.Note: keep an eye

Petraeus for Dummies-An American Love Story

Ed Note: Just writing for fun-This has nothing to do with Mentoring-Lease Purchasing or GUTS Sales just Monkey Business.

Claude, I have a new book for you to review, my friend exclaimed !
I want to make it into a movie. Can I email the screenplay over to you?
Sure, what is it called? I queried,

 Petraeus for Dummies-An American Love Story

Ok, I say, I will look it over this weekend and give you my honest opinion.

Could you imagine a script that you are given to review for a potential movie production in which the following occurs:
It’s all about the  top general of the armed US forces; a true American Hero.

The president and the congress give you constant accolades for your exceptional organizational skills and military acumen.
You have a successful marriage of 37 years with your now Schlubby wife.

You meet a younger attractive biographer who is also in the military and begin to have an ilicit affair with her.

You are subsequently rewarded with a promotion and made the head of the CIA by a grateful country for your innovative “surge” strategy in troubled Iraq.

Meanwhile, you stay in communication with the new girlfriend biographer by using a stealth system of having access to each others draft box on the google cloud email system. So you never have to send traceable emails.

Concurrently as you begin your CIA duties the American Embassy is attacked in Libya and the Ambassador is murdered by a coordinated terrorist attack in which there was ”too little - too late” CIA protection.

Then, your Bio girlfriend  begins to notice how much time you and the Wifey are spending away with a Florida socialite and starts writing nasty anonymous emails to the socialite telling her to stay away from her man.

The socialite who becomes spooked, then calls in a friend who is also a renown
investigator with the FBI and asks him to look into the matter. This same FBI agent BTW was sending shirtless pictures of himself to said socialite.

He ( Mr. Shirtless the  FBI Agent)  then discovers that the emails came from a woman/writer/west point graduate/military officer who is covertly exchanging documents and classified information with the fore-mentioned  former 4 star general and who is now head of the CIA.

He also discovers that the socialite is in communication with enticing emails to another 4 star general and who is now head of the armed forces in Afghanistan and who also happens to be the best friend of the CIA Chief and is suppose to be the new head of Nato.

You call in your bosses in the FBI and state that you have uncovered a potential spy scandal of huge proportions and thousands of questionable files have been exchanged between all the parties concerned.  (The files are later discovered to have no security information and are only related to the biography). Your FBI boss then decides to stick it to the CIA  (a competitive spy agency)  and open a major investigation. He requests judicial warrants and everyone’s computers and email correspondence is seized.

The FBI head however neglects to inform the US Attorney General or The Presidents Chief of Staff of the major spy investigation. Later the CIA  has been informed of the investigation and the chief resigns as head of the CIA.

The Congress then calls for an full investigation. This occurs coincidentally  at the same time there is a Congressional hearing on the Libya hearings in which the CIA failed to protect the US Ambassador.

My friend sends me a text and asks how I like the screenplay so far.

I text back ” Sorry, It’s a little too far fetched;I don’t think anyone would believe that a series of concurrent events like this could ever happen-pure fiction, Incredulous”

The End or just the Beginning?
