Mic before & after his nose job
I never received a bio from this month’s speaker so I’m making one up.
Mic Blackwell is our very own slum lord. And believe me he is. He has preferred to acquire properties in less desirable areas due to their cash flow. I remember when he used to collect his rents through a slot in the wall of one of his properties.
Mic is a buy-and-hold guy. He is a true investor and makes money using other techniques in real estate. One of his most interesting is buying oil well leases. Bet not many of you thought of that real estate investment! Or that you can (and he probably did) do a 1031 exchange into those leases!
A long time ago he started a weekly meeting devoted to real estate investors. It was an invitation only meeting. Anyone lucky enough to attend would get an education while others would bring properties to sell wholesale.
First off, Mic is old, quite old. Unfortunately, I don’t know which one of us is more youthful. Since this is my creation… he’s older; much, much older.
And now Mic makes it a point to help others (the first one that I know is Mike Cantu). Ask around. He has his acolytes everywhere. I teach a calculator class (among others) and I am grateful that Mic has endorsed it. I bring this up because the first class Mic attended everyone went around and introduced themselves. After Mic introduced himself, the next person stood up and said, “I’m here because Mic is and if he farts I’m going to fart too!” I almost fell down laughing! Then a couple of people later, another person stood up and said…… wait for it, wait for it….. “I fart too!” I DID fall down laughing.
Mic’s real and willing to share his knowledge. You should attend and listen!
