Welcome to my Blog! I am Jake Oliver, and I am thankful and excited that you have stopped to visit. I am just a normal guy who is excited about life, my family and my business. One thing I did to have success was that I got really excited about my business and then I took action with a goal in mind to help others succeed.
My goal today is to inspire you and empower you to take action. I am here to share with you what I know about life, real estate investing, business, photography internet marketing & network marketing, and how you can make money from home. More importantly, I am here to guide you through every step in leading a successful home based business while capitalizing on the power of photography internet marketing.
I believe that all of us have a goal within us, whether to achieve something in life or to create the kind of life that we want. Our goal governs our actions in “present” that ultimately lead to success in “future.”
I’m a passionate believer in goal-oriented action and let me help you get what you really want, now and in future.
I designed this blog to inspire you and educate you about success – your success! Because I believe that with proper planning and motivation, anything is possible.
So, then, here’s to your successful life!
Who is Jake Oliver?
First and foremost, I am a family man. Being the youngest of seven kids, I enjoy my family life to the fullest. I would not be who I am if it wasn’t for my family. Getting together with my family is very important to me and we do have a great time. Laughter and happiness is what keeps us going at all times.
I am a proud husband of a beautiful wife. She fits right in to my family and makes my family even brighter. We are blessed with two awesome boys & one daughter and I could not imagine my life without them. My wife, my two boys, and my daughter have molded my life to who I am today. And, I would not have it any other way.
I do what I do so I can spend all of my time growing as a family. After all, I do not want to miss my children growing up!
In the beginning…
I had a humble start, working in a pizzeria. While the going was tough, I gave my 100% in everything I did and my efforts were soon noticed by the pizzeria owner, who took me under his wing. During the next six years, I saw the pizza franchise business up-close, and developed a strong liking for it.
That was when I knew what I really wanted – “To own my own business”, although I had not figured out which one just yet.
The journey forward…
I continued my search for a suitable business, and finally settled down on real estate investments.
My first real estate investment earned me a small profit. Nevertheless, it filled me with hope, excitement and a strong belief that I can get success in my business if I did the things the right way. So, my focus was to learn the “Right Way” to get success in my business.
Real Estate struck the cord!
After that, there was no looking back. In 2002, I started my own real estate investment company in Southeast Michigan. From 2002 to 2009, we bought and sold over 400 properties. I am passionate about real estate and love buying and selling properties. We bought distressed properties and completely rehabbed them for our future renters and buyers. It was definitely a great feeling to have purchased a badly distressed property and rehab it to make it the best looking property on the block. I would say that I got a ”RUSH” from buying and rehabbing properties.
The Good Times and The Bad
Unfortunately, the real estate market plummeted in 2009, which left me with a complete mess!
Looking back, I can say that I took the economy collapse really badly, and was not able to recover for quite some time. Trust me, my family and I went through some major financial challenges over the past few years. It was not fun that’s for sure.
But, eventually, I realized that things happen for a reason in our lives, and that this was just a stepping stone for future successes. I am a family man and I feel things happened for good. Had I not started the real estate investment business, I would have never met my wife and had such wonderful two boys. Also, I would have missed out on some of the longest and most satisfying friendships.
The point is – “Everything happens for a reason.” You win some and you lose some, but you must keep moving if you want to reach your goals.
My favorite quote has always been “Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do”. I believed in my family and knew that if I focused and made the right choices, I will be able to make it as long as I took action. And I did!
The Home Business World
I was introduced to the business of Photography Internet Marketing & Network Marketing by a friend of mine. I knew that real estate was not going to recover anytime soon, and so I decided to take a crack at the home based business world. My goal was to get involved in a business that could survive during the good times of the economy and also the bad times.
For the next twelve months, my efforts seemed to be producing no results, but I never let my enthusiasm down. I started doing more research and learning where I was going wrong. This led me on to Internet Marketing, where I saw that people were making a fortune!
My Secret Sauce: The combination of real estate, photography internet marketing, and network marketing finally started working for me. I received some great advice from some of the most successful people in the industry, who opened my eyes to a whole new world of opportunities.
And, Jake was back in action!
The Power of Internet Marketing and Real Estate
I had tasted the fruits of success in Internet Marketing and I definitely wanted more. I enrolled for specialized coaching from internet marketing gurus, who helped me multiply my earnings and I never had to live from paycheck to paycheck again.
Today, I’ve incorporate all of my internet marketing skills along with cutting edge marketing techniques and combined that with my Real Estate investing. By combining these two industries together, I have been able to stretch my reach to people and investors from around the world. It is very exciting to know that we can do business 24 hours a day all from your home.
The internet is very powerful and can take any business to the next level. This is how my Real Estate business has taken off the way it has. By combining what I’ve learned offline and now have incorporated the online strategies, my Real Estate business can run on autopilot with much less effort and a lot less stress.
You can do it too!
As we know, systems are what make a business succeed or fail. Systems keep our businesses running on autopilot so that we can enjoy life as we are supposed to. With these systems in place, we can make a difference in so many lives worldwide.
Now that I have developed a successful system for creating wealth online and offline, I’ve made it a mission to reach out to as many people as possible and reveal to them the secrets that took me so many years and hard experiences to learn what I know now. And I am making every effort I can, to help people all over the world with their financial challenges.
“There are some risks you cannot afford to take but there are some risks you cannot afford not to take.”
I sincerely believe that Real Estate is the most lucrative industry around, and it would be sad if we didn’t take full advantage of the opportunities offered to us. I enjoy the feeling of buying and rehabbing properties and love the experience and feeling of fulfillment of helping others make money in Real Estate. The “RUSH” I get today is from being able to look someone in the eyes and tell them that I am here to help them get through their tough times and assist them in reaching their dreams & goals.
