Take Away Notes from Austin & James:

1. Open the online gate and flood with influence from others

2. Ask yourself  “SO WHAT?” before you share your work.  If you put everything in that text for everything you do.

3. Be gusty and share the work that you are excited about of the world – shine a spotlight on others, document your process as well as the final project – expect help from the online community to revise your work

4. Read the obituary – learn history of other’s lives to inspire how live our life

5. Forming your own your online Senius: start out as a fan from a few business that you love, follow them online and learn from them then to find your own voice

6. Ignore the haters

7. Share your failure to the world

8.”Be So Good They Can’t Ignore You”

9. Show Your Work – being as creative as possible using as many mediums as possible

Where to invest in real estate in 2015?

According to the recent article from Forbes “Best Buy Cities: Where to invest in housing in 2015″ – Austin rank #1

“The cities on our list are places where opportunities are increasing–and so are their populations. While our top 20 could all offer good opportunities for investment, we favored those with the strongest population growth, which should promise a steady supply of renters. For example, both booming Austin, Texas (No. 1), and Grand Rapids, Mich. (No. 20), boast 3.6% and 3.7% annual job growth rates, respectively, according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics—both beating the 2% national average. However, the Austin metro area’s population expanded by an impressive 8.9% between 2010 and 2013, while Grand Rapids’ grew at a slower 2.8% clip. As a result, Austin gets a higher ranking. (On average for markets across the nation, population growth has been relatively flat at less than 2% for the three-year period, according to U.S. Census data. Thus, all the Best Buy Cities are faring better than the national average.)”
