I do not count Amway as one of the businesses I said I owned. The first one was the brokerage business, and the second one is a mortgage company that I have owned for the last six years. This business had been fairly successful, but with the down turn in the real estate market, business has slowed up considerably. This is why I am looking for other options to pursue at the same time.
Before starting the mortgage company, I worked both a mortgage broker (for one year), and then a mortgage lender (for three years).
I would like to emphasize the fact that I am NOT looking for a way to “get rich quick” without any work. My purpose here is to seek opinions and gather as many facts as possible in an effort to decide what my next step should be.
