Thank you for the encouragement Celes! I actually developed my tenant screening process over the last couple of years because I have a rental property and I've encountered some tenant issues. I wanted to solve this for myself, so I learned everything I could and developed an automated process for my own use, with all the guidelines and forms, on-line links, etc. Its all inclusive of everything needed from the time someone advertises a property for rent, through the application process and all the way up to acceptance or rejection.
After I took your 30DLBL, the idea came to me to convert it into a product. I realized that I could provide a tool to solve a problem and it might be marketable.
I actually spent only one week writing it up into a "story" with links.
Then, I had a real estate attorney friend review it and give it her blessing. She loved it and encouraged me to proceed.
The ebook was completed but then I wasn't sure how to market it. Maybe another Personal Excellence School class that may come up in the future ?
Just recently I thought about approaching someone about writing the Foreword. He said he was HONORED to be asked! When his response was received so quickly and was SO PERFECT, I decided to see if he would help me promote it. And he was happy to!
My brother - you know, I don't think he ever says anything nice to anyone. He is a very negative person. But he doesn't live nearby and we don't talk on the phone. Just now and then I will get a critical email from him through something he sees on my facebook wall. Usually it is me posting some happy news and him shooting me down with negativity.
Yesterday, I restricted his access, so he cannot see the wall anymore. I responded to his first email questioning why I thought I could write anything on the topic and sell it. After that, another email came and I am planning to simply ignore it.
