Alphonza's Journal - A New Begining

Alphonza's Journal - A New Begining

There is a great, meaningful, and fulfilling accomplishment within me. Using my focus, determination, discipline, and effort, I step into my greatness, so that this accomplishment becomes actual and real.

There is a fear within me, I have yet to identify that fear specifically, as I step into the realm of the real estate world, a world where I once ventures; however, I am confident that those of you that I have yet to interface with will support me in my new endeavor, as I offer to support you in those things in which I have knowledge.

My belief in the Grand Architect of the universe empowers me to teach, seek and support. I further impart my collective experiential knowledge, edifying others to practice techniques that encourage and support management through empowerment.

I help and teach others how to create success, attracting abundance in all areas of their lives which make their world a better place to live, a world where no one is left behind.

A brief biography
I led and managed teams of over 13 Fiber Optic Technicians and taught engineers the basics of Fiber Optic Technology, Installation, and Testing.

Observers in school, college, and work often tell me I have a knack for explaining and making difficult things seem simple when I teach, and that I use unique and innovative concepts to impart my knowledge to students in such ways that the teaching is experiential.

In my corporate career, me and my teams tested and turned over for service all the initial fiber optic systems installed in the New York boroughs of, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, The Bronx, Staten Island, White Plains, New Rochelle, Mount Vernon, and Mount Kisco New York.

I believe in continuing education, and am constantly learning. I make every attempt to stay on the cutting edge through studying the latest books, electronic media courses, and systems of marketing. I am an avid student and learn from every successful person that is blazing the trail in their field.

I am fortunate fortunate to have spent personal time with people such as, Jim Rohn, Brian Klemmer, Rich Schefren, Jeffrey Combs, and Jerry Clarke to name a few.

Barbadian by birth, I immigrated to the USA as a permanent resident in 1970, and began what became my career in the telecommunications industry.

I am a proud father of two young ladies, three grandsons and one grand daughter.

I am a master Handyman, Avid Gardener and a Kite Flier; I love Bicycle Riding, Tennis, Snow Skiing, Paddle Ball, Cricket, Horseback riding, Photography, Reading motivational Literature and books, listening to motivational media.

Achievement is mine to create, to which I truly commit. Getting it done, gives me the special joy of creating an environment where everyone moves forward together.

I Have practical professional experience as an Entrepreneur, Electrolux, Amway/Quixtar Independent Business Owner (IBO), electrical contractor, air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing, house painting and small appliance repair. Current passion Network Marketing and empowerment through webucation.

Thirty-six years in Telecommunications Engineer ·
May 1970 to Dec 2006 · New York, New York
Cable Splicer, Switching Equipment Technician, Manager of Fiber Optic Task Force, Fiber Optic Designs, and Fiber Optic Network Systems Architecture.

Using Excel, created in-put forms which were used by Request For Information committees and vendors alike during the acquisition of technical data for vendor selection. The forms collected technical, manufacturing, and cost data that helped us during the selection process and significantly reduce overall contractual costs. 21 different vendors used these forms.

Collaborated, designed and developed an online tutorial for a Testing Equipment manufacturer to offer a certification program to telecommunication companies, as part of a training/purchase package. This program certified operators and introduce new technology and enhance previously acquired skills.

Worked with Testing Equipment manufacturer expanding the "OTDR FM TAP" applications within the north eastern region of the country. This Software package analyzes the OTDR traces of fibers under test, identifying and locating installation deficiencies in fiber optic cables BEFORE they are delivered for service.

Managing teams of people using empowerment principles and techniques.

As a real estate wholesaler intermediary, I want to bring potential sellers and specific properties I locate and evaluate to buyers, mostly investors who want properties to buy and resell or to hold as long term rental investments.

I actually want to take on some level of financial involvement or even ownership in some properties for resale, rental, rehabilitation and Flipping. This is my big picture I envision at this point; however, I have to first conquer the learning curve.

I adopt a critical concept. Its that a real estate wholesaler intermediary is important and offers incredible value in the process, because property availability and investor requirements vary with market trends; therefore, I recognize that finding what’s available, what investors want, bringing them together, delivering only highly qualified service and deals, is marketable and in high demand.

I also plan to develop relationships with real estate agents, working more closely with those agents who actually want to work with investors.

I love teaching others through webucation and empowerment, about their physical-biological well-being, and offering them the possibility to discover the greatness in themselves.

Webucation is education and knowledge delivered 100 percent via the Internet. The material is usually high in quality and content.

Mr Graziosi's webucation tutorials are professional produced well, and I enjoy his photogenic presentations and ease with which he explains the content.

I promote this Niche also, because it supports my calling in life, teaching. I teach others through Webucation and empowerment how to create and build their dreams, tangible or intangible edifying them to help others through empowerment. Bottom line, I educate, enlighten, improve, teach, and uplift.

“No other industry that is so new, has the market potential of webucation. Nor is there any other form of education or knowledge transfer that is so convenient, affordable, or comprehensive. Webucation truly opens the doors of knowledge to anyone that seeks it." Peter Drucker.

This is a profile of my personal discoveries I'd like to share.

I attended a series of several Personal Development Champions workshops designed to produce significant results in my personal life and entrepreneurial endeavors.

Revelation: I am kind, gentle, giving; serious about life, and like to have fun. Others see wisdom and happiness in me.

Personal Mastery: A two and a half day weekend experience that revealed my belief systems holding me back, in my business, my success belief systems, and personal life.

Revelation: The greatness others see in me: I am focused, attentive, a good listener, a planner, leader. I am open minded, family oriented and a team player.

Advanced Leadership:– Breakthrough.

A four day experience in living the Leadership needed for my successful future. I experienced how my life could be, living the ten attributes of a Compassionate Samurai. I learned experientially, the characteristics and the effects of Courage, Honor, Focus, Personal Responsibility, Commitment, Trust, Contribution, Honesty, Knowledge, and Abundance. I inculcate them into my daily life.

My Breakthrough Doctrine: I am an accepted, courageous, excellent, honest, trusting man, I distinguish truth from falsehood, and I love unconditionally.

Heart of the Samurai - Significance and Purpose; Through this intense workshop, I learned the essence of creating and developing a life that lasts beyond success, to that of significance.

Through exercises, I identified, and clarified my purpose in life, resulting in a mission both compelling and far sighted that allows me to endure through fluctuations of my entrepreneurial endeavors and my life; being of service to others, enhance my financial prosperity, promote literacy, and compassion, all growing exponentially.

Revelation: My purpose is to edify and teach others through empowerment, how to motivate themselves, practicing daily positive mental exercises, repeating affirmations leading them to success in all areas of their lives, developing and owning their greatness, being courageous, excellent, truthful, loving, kind, honest, creating a harmonic world.

Through my workshop exercises, I identified, and clarified my purpose in life, as a result, I developed a mission both compelling and far sighted that enables me to endure through fluctuations in my life, and to be of service to others.

Revelation: My purpose at this stage in my life is to edify and teach others through empowerment and webucation, how they can motivate themselves, practicing daily positive mental exercises and affirmations which lead them to be successful in all areas of their lives eventually developing and owning their greatness, being courageous, excellent, truthful, loving, kind and honest, creating a world where everyone moves forward together in harmony.

I am once again in the classroom with a brain like a sponge, absorbing all I can, to put into action pursuing and achieving my dreams

I am moving through "30 Days to Real Estate Cash" at a steady pace. Dean was right when he says I'll feel like I'm getting a drink of water from a fire hose. I 'm up to page 72.

My plan is to read through the book in its entirety, see what tools are at my disposal and create in my mind a 32000 feet view of the possibilities as Dean paints his canvas for my consumption. So far I am really excited and eager to put my blueprints into action.

I visited all the websites suggested in the book up to page 72, to get familiar with the material and the lay out of the different websites. The websites have a simple layout; however, they are all loaded with great information. I reviewed the templates for buyers, agents, intro-letters, and buyer's profile.

I revisited my "WHY" fine-tuned it, read it over and over a few times to a point where I began to feel an emotion stirring deep with in me.

Lets Go, Go, Go.
