@JeanNVicRivera Jean, I'm sorry to hear about your struggle. I pray that you will experience healing and find comfort through this tough time.
To clarify, this site isn't owned by Kevin or in anyway affiliated with him. If I knew how to contact him I would help you. But I don't. And he apparently doesn't have any money anyway. He spent a night in jail last year to avoid paying him FTC fines.

@kevinz Kevin, did you have tax penalties?

@JD in Boerne This is a great question and one I intend to answer in detail when I file my taxes this year. Rental property gives you the added benefit of being able to subtract depreciation from the income. So my $4k profit will be more like a $2k loss for tax purposes once I subtract $6k in annual depreciation expense. The loss will help reduce my overall tax burden. It's a huge win.

@DenverEric I hope so too, Eric. My first year wasn't as good because I took a while to onboard the tenant. But I'm glad I took my time with that because it made year 2 (and beyond hopefully) really solid.

@LarryOHara Hi Larry. I did not mean to imply that I'm currently using one. I'm a user in the sense that I ordered one and so I have a referral number. I don't have a prototype. I'll just get my completed Coin this Summer if all goes as promised. If Coin doesn't deliver I'll seek to get my money back. If, for some strange reason there is no answer there, my credit card issuer will protect me on the purchase.

@BudgetBlonde I was born in Natchitoches and finished high school in Ringgold. Went to Tech and then made my way over to DFW where I've been for 12 years. I'm so glad it will be a convenient trip. It will be for my staff as well as they all are in LA.

@CT No, but you can sync the Coin to the Coin App on your phone and if your Coin is ever away from your phone it will not work.

@joetaxpayer It's possible that was my test data point.

@Tom Wachowski I've been on flights where a lap baby belt was loaned to us by the airline. It seemed quite safe and effective. Not sure why all airlines don't offer this. Likely liability issues.

@Tyler_DebtReckoning Having a paid off, reliable vehicle is great. Yeah, this doesn't work as well if there's no rental location close by.

@brokeandbeau No need to cancel. If you decide you don't need the Premier anymore, just call them up and have them downgrade your card from the Premier to the Preferred, which has no annual fee.

@WhatMommyDoes Same here. I'm prepping the VP now and I'm tempted to just sit and watch for a while.
@Romeojeremiah Thanks, Romeo. Had a great time getting to know you more. Let's definitely hook up soon.
