As I told yesterday, I just purchased a 2800 square foot office condo with seven offices and a conference room.

I paid cash.

I avoid bank credit, altogether, due to their penchant for predatory lending, which I have seen far more of than I would like.

While everyone else was all excited about getting their new credit card or line of credit, I was taught, from very young, by very smart, and very wealthy people to avoid it like the plague.

All of our work is done with private capital.

Much of it on a handshake.

Old school as they come.

When a man's word was his bond.

Days which seem to be long gone, but which people like me hope and expect will return, of necessity, soon enough.
