How Can This Be Good: Two More Banks Fail, Bankruptcies At New Highs, Commercial Loans Ready To Implode

If you have followed this blog you know I am a fan of Bill Bartmann. He is a rags to billionaire riches  story and most of his wealth came during an economic climate similar but actually less serious than what we are facing today.  I follow Bill because he deals in reality and looks for the opportunity in what other see as a disaster.

This email I received from highlights some startling fact about our economy.  Personally I some direct experience with our financial institution industry and if anything Bill may be understating the pending failures.  As for the opportunity Bill suggests, that is up to you. I am not an affiliate, I am not paid to publish this on my blog, I make no money from sharing this with you.  I feel Bill is on the mark and come to your own conclusions.

I have been on several of Bill’s calls and I have studied his book Bailout Riches which I highly recommend if you have an interest in the details of how this works.  If you are intrigued you now have the information on the next steps.

On Friday, FDIC shut down two more banks – which will have billions in losses.

The bank failure total for the year is now 95 and includes three of the largest and most troubled — Guaranty Bank in Austin, Colonial Bank in Birmingham and Corus in Chicago.

We project the number will top 1,000 over the next year and a half.   The majority of the banks that will fail are Community Banks and Regional Banks where the impact will devastate entire communities.  The FDIC is running  out of money and will soon have to tap taxpayers – only the second time in the 75 year history of the FDIC that it had to do so.

Personal bankruptcies will hit a record 1.4 million this year.

Business bankruptcies are 250% over their previous high – and rising.

Unemployment is at 9.7 – heading for 10%   (Department of Labor says real unemployment rate is 16%).

Credit Card charge-offs are at 10.5% and Moody’s predicts they will go to 12%.

Mortgage foreclosures and “walk-aways” continue at record pace.

Any discussion of the Recession ending and the recovery beginning are based on wishful thinking, while ignoring the brutal facts.

The Commercial Real Estate market is about to implode the same way “sub-prime residential real estate” did two years ago. The economic impact of this implosion will compound every category mentioned above which will result in increased bank failures, increase personal and business bankruptcies, higher unemployment, higher credit card and mortgage default.

Sounds terrible, doesn’t it?

OPPORTUNITYWell, it is terrible – but it is also some of the best news you could ask to hear!

Why?  Because the last time I saw this environment, I made $5 billion just picking up the pieces of all those credit defaults and failed banks and by helping good banks dispose of their bad loans.

Now, a $5 billion net worth may sound unbelievable.  I assure you it was real and I was not the only person who made a lot of money helping all those consumers put their lives back together and helping the government and the banks solve those problems.  That is how big the opportunity was 20 years ago.

Guess what?  We are back in that same situation again today!  Banks are failing left and right.  Bad loans are everywhere you look.  The US Treasury and the FDIC are looking for people like you and me to help solve this problem.  Just this past week the FDIC closed on the very first tranaction under the Legacy Loan Program.  The Legacy Loan Program allows a generous leverage that magnifies the return for the Investor.
This first transaction under the Legacy Loan Program was a pool of residential real estate loans.  Now, I have no interest in real estate and neither should you.  But, first comes the real estate and then comes everything else and that is where the great opportunities are.
Those of us who participate and take advantage of this program could potentially make millions of dollars. T

he Legacy Loan Program not only makes a tremendous amount of loans available for purchase at a steep discount to true value, they it provides a government funding source.

The Legacy Loan Program is not the end of the good news and the great opportunities.  The market is rapidly filling with charged off loans available for purchase at very steep discount from banks that have not failed — banks like Chase, US Bank, Bank of America, Citibank, Wells Fargo and all the other names you have known for years.

Here is your chance to get a piece of the “Bailout!”

Here is your chance to take advantage of what will be a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Finally, a Bailout Plan that is aimed at all of us on “Main Street” instead of those fat cats on “Wall Street.”

It gets even better than that.  I am offering my students a chance to become a full-fledged business partner with me in this industry.   Bill Bartmann

Busting Loose From The Business Game

In 2006, author Bob Scheinfeld published a book titled: Busting Loose From The Money Game.  I purchased the book based on the recommendation from another admired author and read it once  over the course of about a week.  I then went back and read it more closely, made notes, highlighted sections in yellow. In short I really studied this book.

I had not been exposed to most of the information in that book to that point.  I was very skeptical even after studying it in-depth. This was because the concepts were so different from anything I had imagined.  However, I found a part of me saying it made a lot of sense.

Over the subsequent three years,  I have learned that Busting Loose From The Money Game was based on what is known by scientists as the discipline of Quantum Physics.  During this time the movie The Secret was released. There has been a growing awareness of The Law of Attraction.  Quantum Physics  supports The Law of Attraction.

Here is a real life example from personal experience. If you have followed the articles published in this blog you know I have a lot of very valuable business experience.  I use this experience to  help companies improve their business performance and in some cases help them if they find themselves in a difficult situation (business turnaround consulting).

When I was near graduating from college I decided that I wanted to be a CPA and work with one of the Big 8 (at the time) firms. I visualized that experience as best I could, I interviewed with a few firms and I was not hired…then.  I ultimately relaxed that idea, but I did become a CPA and also went on to earn my MBA. Both were credentials I decided I wanted to have because one day I wanted an executive position and be in the board room running a large business. I felt those credential would help.

I was relentless on that idea. I felt certain it would happen.  Nine years after I was not offered a job with one of the Big 8, the number one firm in the world hired me . I went on to have a marvelous experience there for 10 years.  I left and went right to being a senior executive of a $360 million company.  I was in the board room with several other senior people running that company.  There is a lot more to this story including some of the near total disasters I experienced but the point is I attracted that which I was focused on consciously or otherwise.  That is The Law of Attraction.  “Like attracts like”.

Today in business and in all areas of my life I am continually creating the picture that I want to have appear.  Now if you asked my most recent client how that turned out they would say not very well.  I would say one chapter is closed and another is beginning.  Soon I will prepare another article on change and surprises. For now I say to you,  The Law of Attraction works perfectly all the time.  The problem comes in when the outcome isn’t like we thought it would be. Sometimes the outcome is much better and sometimes it isn’t.

In the situation I just finished, the bank decided it was in their best interest to liquidate the company.  There is no way on this planet in my lifetime I thought I would  understand the bank’s position given the alternative solutions presented to them. However, Bill Bartman’s latest book “Bailout Riches” offers answers.  Do you see I was asking questions and I attracted answers.  Not only that,  but I attracted  an opportunity to profit from the current conditions should I pursue what Bill suggests. I don’t think I will but you can.

I love understanding and increasing my connections with that which I intend to attract.  I love sharing what my experiences and insight on these topics.  Nearly a year ago I had an idea of how I could blend my passion for The Law of Attraction with my experience and skill set in business and particularly the consulting arena.  Shortly thereafter, a number of things began to fall in place and today I have along with my business partner have growing business based on The Law of Attraction. That business is Manifest Mastermind.  What is most important I work on what I love and some people like it enough to stay as paying members.  How cool is that?

My purpose has been to give you a glimpse as to why I immediately purchased Bob Scheinfeld’s latest book: “Busting Loose From The Business Game”  I have not read it as I just order it today.  I encourage you to order it and for transparency purposes I am not an affiliate and Bob hasn’t asked me to write this and certainly hasn’t paid me any money to do so.  For the record I am not opposed to being paid :).

I know this  book will have  as much influence on me as the first one I read and I am excited about all the possibilities.

Here is the link and if you decide to order, please tell Bob that you heard about it from Steve Pohlit.
