Working in the world of real estate can be a cutthroat business. Buying and selling real estate property has always been a lucrative income. Many realtors have made money and yet others have lost money. Even though there is the concept of networking within the real estate market that does not safeguard anyone from making decisions that could cost them everything.
In real estate there are no guarantees. It is basically trial and error even when a realtor has years of experience behind them. Because this market is so lucrative with the income it has also attracted individuals who have gone into selling real estate just to scam others. This is exactly what happened to Mr. Jim Toner. Mr. Toner has been dealing with real estate for over 25 years but unfortunately one decision cost him everything. His decision had nothing to do with inexperience or incapabilities.
Instead what Mr. Jim Toner was trying to do was to expand his business and decided to reach out to a well-known realtor company which turned out to be nothing more than a sham. After he and several other individuals gave permission for this realtor to help them with increasing revenue the realtor in return took all of their money and left. At this point Jim thought that he had lost it all. His passion and desire for selling real estate was gone so he decided to take a step back from working in the market. It was during this difficult time that he received encouragement from a friend which helped to restore his passion for the market once again. See Toner’s guide to financial independence here.
According to Medium.com, having had his zeal restored once again Mr. Jim Toner decided to come back into the real estate market but he decided to do things a little differently this time. He selected specific areas of the real estate market that he wanted to work in and also sought out the best local realtors in specific locations to help run the business. He wanted to show other people that there are good and honest realtors in this market. He was also determined to show that the real estate market is a profitable market and that not everyone is out to steal from others.
Another big difference was that this time around instead of him reaching out for assistance he became the assisting person for the local realtors in specific locations. This way he was able to ensure the success of the other realtors that he partnered with and for himself. He made it a point to be involved with the entire process of researching, acquiring and selling the real estate. He also added additional safeguards to ensure that the overall success for his team was inevitable. Mr. Jim Toner, a real estate entrepreneur is now working his way back to the top with a newfound sense of reverence for the real estate market, for other individuals but most importantly for himself.

Along with this, Steve Ritchie Papa John’s also made it clear the company will be transparent every step of the way, and expects to be held accountable by its employees, franchisees, and customers. And in perhaps the most surprising move of all, he announced in his letter that senior management of Papa John’s will be traveling across the country to visit various franchisees. In doing so, the executives will be able to see firsthand how daily operations proceed, and also talk face-to-face with franchisees, employees, and customers to learn specifically what can be done to not only make the Papa John’s experience better for everyone, but also keep and maintain the trust that has taken so many years to develop.
In reacting to the letter, most business experts believe it showed smart leadership on the part of Steve Ritchie. As a result, he has already started to build up the levels of credibility needed to keep current customers and attract new ones. While the months ahead are certain to bring additional changes in many areas, most have no doubt Steve Ritchie is the right man to lead the way.

As a co-founder of Fortress Investment Group, a private equity firm based in New York City, Wes Edens is a seasoned veteran in the investment banking world. Wes Edens graduated with a B.S. in Finance and Business Administration from Oregon State University in 1984 and three years later began his career at Lehman Brothers where he eventually became a partner and managing director. In 1993, Edens left Lehman Brothers and signed on with BlackRock Asset Investors, the private equity division of BlackRock Inc. Once again, he would use his exceptional business acumen to attain partner and managing director at BlackRock. However, both firms would prove to be mere stepping stones for Mr. Edens.
It was in 1998 when Wes Edens signed on as one of five founding partners of Fortress Investment Group along with Peter Briger, Rob Kauffman, Randy Nardone, and Mike Novogratz. As of 2016, Fortress manages $70 billion through a combination of private equity management, credit funds, and traditional asset management.Wes Edens most profitable gambit at Fortress was the 2010 purchase of Springleaf Financial – a subprime loan provider – for $124 million. Five years later, Springleaf reached a valuation of $3.5 billion, giving Fortress a nearly thirty-fold return on their investment and earning Edens the title “new king of subprime lending” by the Wall Street Journal.
With a personal net worth exceeding $1.2 billion – high enough to rank #962 on Forbes’ Billionaires Index – Edens has segued into both professional sports and e-sports. Alongside fellow billionaire investor Marc Lasry, Edens co-purchased the Milwaukee Bucks, an NBA franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Wes’ confidence in seemingly unconventional business ventures was again highlighted with his 2017 ownership of FlyQuest, a professional League of Legends e-sports team.While e-sports have existed since at least the 1990’s, the last few years have seen explosive growth with annual revenue exceeding $600 million by 2017. With League of Legends positioned at the forefront of competitive video gaming, it’s entirely possible to envision a future in which owning an e-sports team can potentially rival – or even overcome – a traditional sports franchise.
