Seven “Perfect” Lies
That Keep You From
Playing Your Top Game!
A Serious Talk About Real Estate & Life
with Sharon Rubinstein
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Sharoney RubinsteinJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, April 15th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs with Sharon “Sharoney” Rubinstein on the Seven “Perfect” Lies we often tell ourselves that keep us from playing our top game in real estate and in life.

Everyone talks about potential. It’s easy to talk. It’s just “hot air” as Sharoney calls it, BUT do you ever listen? Not to others talk, no, she doesn’t mean that… Do you EVER listen to your own BS?! Do you ever stop to listen to the words that come out of your own mouth? That’s exactly what Sharoney will ask you in her talk – “Seven ‘Perfect’ Lies”.

A few words from Sharoney about her talk at BIG…

What are those Seven “Perfect” Lies that you keep telling yourself that keep you from playing your top game? Because you see, that’s what we do, ALL OF US. We tell ourselves perfect lies that make us stay put, feeling “there is no choice” and so life goes on. Nothing BIG happens.

You keep doing life with minor changes, minor growth and you tell yourself: “It’s good, it’s OK”, but is it? Really?

Let me ask you something, would you be OK listening to your kids lying to you every day? Your parents? Your wife? Your boyfriend? Would you be OK with your boss lying to you every day? No?! Then why are you OK with lying to yourself EACH AND EVERY DAY? WHY?!

If you feel a little uncomfortable now, that’s good. Some part of you knows that you are reaching the end of your rope. Enough. Yes, ENOUGH!

I’m Sharoney Rubinstein and I am a life mentor, a bestselling author, entrepreneur and real estate investor. My talk at the Beginning Investors Group will shed a huge light on those PERFECT lies and make you see what truth needs to be said for you to start playing your TOP NOTCH GAME!

In this special presentation, we will see the 7 most common lies we talk ourselves into and HOW sneakily we actually do it (it will blow your mind!) and why are those lies so common to most humans.

We will also learn how to catch ourselves from getting “fake reassurance” from our friends and family who often just tell us what we want to hear. We need to “catch” ourselves while we do it.

  • “Baby, it’s not going to be so bad if I eat this cake now…. I mean I did work out yesterday and this morning, right?”

  • “Yes, it’s not that bad…”

Do you ever do that? Ask for “fake reassurance” while you know they will give it to you. You also know the very next moment that you should not even have asked.

Does it happen in business? Yes, all the time. We tell ourselves lies and then look for people who will support those lies.

I will teach you a simple, yet very clever trick to use when you feel you are sabotaging your way up.

We all have patterns, but do we know them? Are we aware how predictable we are? And if we could, what’s to prevent us from repeating those patterns again and again?

Let’s start by getting to the BIG Event on Monday, April 15th at 5PM at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs. Or you already have a good “lie” as to why you don’t really need to be there? ;)

If you aren’t getting everything you want out of real estate and life and you think it might be YOU getting in your own way, be sure to catch this special edition of the Beginning Investors Group with Mentor Sharoney and learn now to stop the lies and play your top game! RSVP NOW!

Andy BlochOnsite PropertyAndy says… “We bought this house from another investor who was over his head. With the purchase came a set of building plans that were already approved by the city. Once Josh and I started working on the house, we modified it, buy popping the top and adding two dormers with a bedroom each upstairs. The original plans called for a ranch style home. With the second floor addition, we are going to end up with roughly 2500 sqft. We purchased the property for 80k, intend to put roughly 190k into it and sell it between $375 – 400K.”

George AntoneThat’s a BOLD promise! Anyone who is familiar with George Antone and his proven advanced strategies know they are in for a treat because George always fulfills on his bold promises!

George, a 3-time best-selling author and thought leader in the finance and investing space, has blown the lid off a new paradigm no one is teaching; or even talking about, until now!

Imagine low-risk and low-stress strategies that are implemented one time and placed on autopilot to work FOR you starting ASAP – all in 6 hours or less per month!

In fact, keep reading for a $100k+ strategy that will be revealed in this presentation!

No, this is not a “get rich quick” strategy, but a fascinating way to tweak finance to make it work for you in amazing ways!

The traditional methods of building wealth can be grouped into 3 main categories: Investing, Trading and Saving. These traditional methods work; however, they require a lifetime commitment of learning and implementation.

Hacking Finance by George AntoneGeorge has been working on this new paradigm, a 4th method, called “Hacking Finance” – that promises the ability to LEARN and IMPLEMENT each financial strategy within a total of 6 hours or less, and then place it on autopilot to keep working for you! Join us at the meeting to get your Complimentary Copy of “Hacking Finance”!

…and you are about to walk away with one of these $100k+ “shortcuts” just from this presentation! This is NOT an overnight $100k+ strategy, but something you implement one time, and it builds over a number of years into $100k or more on autopilot.

What if you are already investing or lending? Quite simply, these methods will increase your existing returns tremendously! Come discover from George’s #1 trainer how to boost your yields by combining this system with your existing investments!

Paul RossanoThat’s exactly why we’re excited to have Paul Rossano, George’s top trainer, as our guest speaker this month at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, April 8th from 5PM-9PM at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA!

Paul will also be sharing this new paradigm, and will give you details of ONE of those strategies that banks use (called “floats”), that you can use to skyrocket your wealth. Paul will demonstrate what you need to do the very next morning at your local bank to increase your wealth by $100k+ over a number of years on autopilot without the stress of risky investments… and this is just ONE of MANY strategies!

Some people work hard. Others work smart. This is working smart!

If you want your path to financial freedom made easier, then this is something you cannot afford to miss out on! It just might be what you are looking for!

With a few financial tweaks and this different approach, you’ll find you have more time and money to work with than you thought.

Leap forward financially with less risk, less stress, and more time to enjoy life!

So bring a notepad, bring a friend, and get to this meeting—it may change your financial life forever! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaHey folks, Don DeRosa here… I’d like to personally invite you to kick off the monthly Atlanta REIA Meeting with me on April 8th at 5PM Sharp. At this session I will show you how to become a transaction engineer and how to do something with every single lead you get.

Have you ever had a lead that you didn’t know what to do with, or a lead that you wish you had more options? Having multiple option on every deal could make all the difference in the world. The age old saying “the more you know, the more you make” really does apply in real estate investing.

I will be discussing, multiple offer strategies, negotiating and creative offer making. I will also show you how to use my patented “Easy Offer Maker” to make profitable offers every time, using multiple strategies like, owner finance, subject to, options and lease options. If you want to learn how to make money at everything you get your hands on then come see me at 5PM SHARP on Monday April 8th.
