Questions On RelocatingViews: 645
Jan 08, 2010 2:40 amQuestions On Relocating#

Lamar Morgan 954-603-7901

I am leaving California and returning to Florida to regroup. My local friends agree this is a good idea as California's economy does not seem to be improving. I will be relocating to Coconut Creek, FL, which is near Ft. Lauderdale.

So, that brings up some questions. Will I have a problem accessing my networks? My ISP is in California and I am in Florida. My Skype-In number is for a Lake County, CA area code, but there I am in Florida. Obviously, I will want to change my ISP, but will there be problems in the interim?

I cannot make any changes before I show up in Florida. All the changes are going to have to be made AFTER I arrive and get settled.

Big decision Lamar.

You've put so much work into your local community too. But at the same time you might have burnt a bridge or two.

Anyway, I wish you well.
Explore who lives near your new address who you are already connected too.

Try to sort out a list of people to drop a note too.
Arrange some face to face meetings over coffee.
Pick up the phone and talk to people.
Are there any local person to person networking groups.

I saw a young man from the UK arrive in NZ, with a very active energetic approach. He was employed with 30 days.

John,

I am originally from Florida. I have family that still lives there. Therefore, I am not really going somewhere I have no connections. In coming to California, I had absolutely no advance connections. I really had no idea what awaited me. But, it was a life or death situation. The doctor whose help I needed lived here. She saved my life.

I think it is more appropriate to say that the bridges burned me rather than I burned them. But, I could be wrong about that. I suppose the correct answer to that question is very individualistic. It all depends who you ask about me. I know I have fans. I actually created a Squidoo lens that showcases many of them. But, I also know I have my detractors.

Thanks to the Internet, I can say so long to my detractors, but maintain close online relationships with friends I have made in the area.

Sounds like you are moving for the right reasons. Don't focus on the ISP side of things, focus more on the networking and catching up with old friends.

Let your e-networks know why you will be offline, and get settled in to Florida.

I have moved recently for work to a mining town in western Australia, but have found that work has provided new opportunities and friendships, and the local people are more than happy to share ideas and experiences.

Having an e-business is difficult, but there are always options. How about a mobile wireless device to maintain internet connection, or internet cafes.

It sounds like a great opportunity to take a few weeks off to relax and take a holiday.

Scott,

People in California can call me in Florida and not pay long-distance changes. However, local folks in Florida who decide to call me on my Skype-In line will pay long-distance charges. That seems so odd. But, I suppose for a lot of cell phone users, calling long-distance is not the big deal it once was. You don't really care where the call goes so long as you connect.

Lamar;   Identifying "Problems" poisons your subconscious.

I'd much prefer so see you "Seeking Solutions" in your new situation, which serves to supercharge our subconscious positively. ..... To each his own;   I suppose.

Start keeping the 3 "C"s of effective communication in sharp focus.

A. Be Concise.

B. Are you Credible.

C. Is this Constructive?

Print a dozen posters with A, B & C on them and paste 'em all over your new home so you will remember this important Mantra..

Best wishes on your new journey.

FWIW; ... I wouldn't generally broadcast my relocation plans.   Change can make folks uncomfortable and may extinguish a few embers.

Hi Lamar,

Good move for the New Great Year 2010.

Wishing you best of luck for going back home. Indeed I may as well move back to my home at Bangalore, India from current location of Dubai due to lack of career opportunities for over 3 months after nearly 6 years.

We in India believe - Our name is written on the grains we eat and if it is currently available elsewhere then destiny will certainly take us there because only we are destined to eat it.

Here are tips from Mr. Robin Sharma on planning for 2010.

FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE FINDING 62 Points a bit long, here is an easier one !!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Step #1:
Evaluate 2009. Do a written story recording what went well this past year and, even more importantly, what areas you could improve on. Also list all your wins and as many high points as you can recall. Get a clear picture of how you showed up.

Step #2:
Set Your Theme. Come up with a theme for 2010. It may be "The Year of Financial Freedom" or "The Year of Work Excellence" or "The Year of Fearlessness". But get a theme into a document you can start reviewing every week.

Step #3:
Create a Mission. The next step is to develop a one paragraph mission statement and put it into this document. Clarity precedes mastery so the more clear your ultimate mountaintop for 2010 is, the greater your focus will be. And the most positive results you'll see.

Step #4:
List Your Big 5. OK, now ask yourself this powerful self-coaching question: "What 5 things need to happen between now and December 31, 2010 for this to have been the single most successful year of my life to date?" Write down those five goals as simply and clearly as possible into this document.

Step #5:
Sequence Your Big 5. Now break your Big 5 down into quarterly goals. Set 5 core goals for the first/second/third and fourth quarters of 2010 to ensure you nail your Big 5. Review these every week. Reflect on them everyday if you really want to win. Make these strategic objectives the sole focus of your life.

Step #6:
Refocus Every Morning. Life's job is to distract you. Your job is to stay staggeringly focused on what's most important. Take 15 minutes during your morning resetting period to reflect on your goals, to envision your best moves and to track out a day that's productive, passionate and fun.

Step #7:
Get Devoted to Learning. The #1 skill of super successful people is that they are relentless learners. While others are wasting time on low-value websites or watching mindless reality tv shows, they are listening to audio programs, studying books on leadership and success and basically creating a rich, beautiful and meaningful life. As you journey through each day of 2010, make the time to fuel your brain with ideas on excellence and creating your absolute best. Nothing's more important than that. And please remember that all it takes is a single idea to transform the way you lead and how you live.

Happy New Year

Cheers,

Shivaji

Hey Lamar;   If you're seeking a new enterprise in FL. .... Think about starting A Foreclosure Cleaning Business For Mortgage Co.'s & Banks.

It will put immediate cash into your pocket and you'll soon find that you're rubbing with the "bright sparks" in the community.

Contrary to what the headlines indicate. ... There is serious money currently being made in S Florida Real Estate.

Keep the 3 "C"s in sharp focus.

Teddy,

What exactly is a foreclosure cleaning business? Are you talking about physically cleaning houses that have gone into foreclosure for banks and mortgage companies? I am 59 years old. My teen years are a long way behind me.

Lamar you don't have to be a teen. Are you physically impaired?

There is more than one way to skin a cat, and I'm sure Teddy will give you some pointers if you are not physically up to doing the work yourself.

When it comes to manual labor, yes I am physically impaired. I hope that answers your question.

Then your planning will involve determining what activities you can do, how to develop a contingency for other things you can't but need done, and how much you need to earn. Well that would be a good start. From there you can begin to think about the How.

Lindy,

Did you see my question to Teddy? Are we talking about the physical cleaning of houses that have gone into foreclosure? That was my initial question. I assume that if I am not the person that physically does it, I should somehow be involved in managing or coordinating those who do the cleaning. I am simply making assumptions here. I have never been involved in that world. I have no idea what is involved. For all I know, Florida may be using Cubans who do not speak English to do this sort of thing.

Personally, I do not see myself as being a major player in that sphere of influence.

Lindy Asimus
Lamar perhaps being a minor player would be sufficient to furnish the financial recompense you are after.

Either way, why not scope it out before you determine if you like the idea or not. Without that, how could one even know?


Of course you may have no need of financially rewarding industry, in which case the question would be moot.

Lindy,

Okay, fair enough. Will check it out.

Which reminds me, I asked you a question on TeamCircle and did not get an answer. Did you draw that cartoon and are you the cartoon character? I really admire folks who have the skill to draw. If that is your free-hand ability, you definitely have that skill.

@Lamar! ..... The real estate community often needs properties cleaned up prior to sale or renting. ..... Cleaning up foreclosed houses for the financial institutions has become serious business.

Financial institutions just want the place cleaned out and swept up. ..... In some cases they may need the property 'boarded up'.

This is schlepp & hustle work which needs some kind of truck. .... Don't analyze this to death. .... Owners don't care who does the job. They only care that it gets done and they get to sleep at night.

Attend a few meetings of the local Real Estate investors club. ... You'll be rubbing with winners and you'll get a sense of what's going on.

If you wish to conserve your assets and generate some quick cash. ... This may be one plan.

"Two men looked out from between the bars! ... One saw mud; The other stars"

GoGet'em, Tiger.


Bestest.
