Great narrative and worthy of a reblog.  Everything has a degree of risk that’s worth doing.

I have worked with investors who are seasoned and have a trained eye. They scour and roam the Real Estate countrysides (and other places) looking for potential deals to PLANT or SEED their money in…..But it did not start out that way…..

You see it takes years of saving money in some instances to even consider playing the INVESTMENT game. Then perhaps you may pool with others and venture out there to do business. Money that you have worked hard for called “SWEAT” money cannot be gambled away.

Just like you see all these neat little gadgets in Army/Navy stores, 99 cents stores, novelty shops, late night TV etc, they are nothing you really need, but the little kid in you wants it just the same. That is what the investor or venture capitalist is looking for….things that you would want. You would be surprised at how many things have been rejected by the U.S patent office but remain viable and attractive ideas….they just cannot be monopolized.

My point is that investors look for things that have promise…both short term and long term and then analyze them. No one knows what will or wont be a success thus you have investors spreading out their risks. Some in Real Estate, stock market, different start-ups, technology, medicines and software to name a few.

When your money starts making money, then we enter the recapture or recoup stage. You want to reach the point where you get all your investment back and then play with the RETURN $$ or the “houses” money. Now, the money you made is making money and this allows you to take more risks knowing that if you lose or miss, you really only lost what you made. The original NEST EGG is ready to hatch and then lay again. 

When investors roam around looking for the best deal, you can rest assured that they are looking at you too. Usually Real Estate investors have a team in place, but other investments require a team and support. So, the deal gets looked over, but so does the people who they are trusting their money with. Can these people perform? Can they score? The investor needs to know this. If they have to walk-it through, they will make it part of the deal.

Start-up for anything is loaded up front with risks…uncertainties and untested waters…No one knows what will happen and when, but their best guess and analysis is out there working until they make that commitment.

If you ever read the story of how Walt Disney started Disneyland, it is fascinating to say the least. It was loaded with risk and his vision carried the concept as far as he could. When he finally was able to raise capital and put the idea into play, he ended up with just a small percentage of the company. I remember Walt taking his friend Art Linkletter to Anaheim and showing him these dirt fields. Walt told Art, to buy as much land as he could because he is building something that will change and transform the whole area. Of course Art didn’t listen (most people don’t), but others did. Their share of the investment is in the multi-billion by now.

I recently bought a fixer upper and spent time and money on it. Many people passed on the deal. I saw something, a potential…. and put my money into play. When I was finished, my phone rang off the hook. In the beginning, you may hesitate like everyone else, but you then realize the famous statement that comes into play…which is:


Money makes money...if you let it……. It is start-up that you have to worry about.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
