Been getting your faced ripped off lately? Can’t come up with a good idea to save your life? Why not stop what you’re doing an doing and start flipping houses? Vanilla Ice has been doing so for the last fifteen years and says it’s not only really fun but super lucrative as well. Now an expert, he stopped by CNBC today to talk shop and share a little business wisdom.

Herewith, Ice’s tips for success (which can really be applied no matter your situation):

* Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery
* Take it day by day
* Know your markets
* Know your locations (“people like places that come with a lot of Feng shui”)
* Backyards are important (“That’s why I put Tiki huts out there with a lazy river”)

    Didn't I see him once while I was in hs in some sort of super tricked out car that would sell when the bidding ended today for $50?

    Saw him perform at a club in London. He came out super late and was only on for 30 minutes until people started moshing "too violently". He promised to come do Jager shots with everyone after, but it never happened…

    CNBC – "Vanilla Ice has buys and sells homes mainly in Florida" Really?

    I was going to make fun of the Ice Man, but with a tag line like that, I think it's simply another indictment of our education system that this guy continues to has buys and sells homes that are mainly in Florida.

    I have plenty of self esteem to carry a low +/-. Am I really the only one that sees the comedy of "has buys and sells" and "homes mainly in Florida"?

    Is it too late to add UBS sucks?

    He played by my school back in college at this shitty bar and brought porn on stage yelling stuff like "all the girls with titties like these take your shirts off!"

    Then he asked if anyone who had pot wanted to come backstage and smoke with him because he couldn't bring his on the plane but we all saw the touring van parked outside. My friends had some but wanted to save it for later that night so we left.

    They actually manage bigger like the traditional Ugg boots thus get a new size decrease. They appear great along with tights and skinny skinny jeans. They’re very warm and comfy. High priced sure, but very well worth the cost, the design and style is eternal and that i understand I shall be sporting these for countless years.

    Simply because are perfect! They are thus comfortable, but additionally fot it, just what a http://www.ingboots.com fitwij [b][url=http://www.ingboots.com]ugg boots outlet[/url][/b] ugg sale fuss they will cause where ever I put them under! Adult males, women, vibrant girls * everyone says just how much that they adore all of them. These are so excellent! I’d like the particular dark versions today also. My partner and i usually put on an 7 within typical footwear as well as do measurement lower to many 7, while advised. I put on them barefoot and they are fine this specific measurement, could pull in it lanky denims or even leggings. Inside a best world, they will can be purchased in 50 % proportions too, and that i may have got a new 7?, however realize they’re going to increase somewhat and they will become best.

    A stylish trunk, but merely somewhat throughout the http://www.labboots.com peeivt ugg [b][url=http://www.dellboots.com]dellboots[/url][/b] costly facet. Ordered these kind of during my adolescent daughter and he or she cherished these. Fast boots are only since great pertaining to fifty percent the price.

    I really like Uggs! Last but not least got a new antique black brief pair-uber comfy and chic. Required these people the therapy lamp as well as employed every one of them morning long with out complaint. Generally We buy the greater colours after i obtained the actual Dark match along with broke them throughout without having socks your coloring utilized away on my small ft, but that’s my own just criticism. Increase thumbs upward!
