Nick Vertucci: From Broke To A Multimillionaire Using Real Estate

When Nick Vertucci was struggling some years ago and was having trouble paying his bills and taking care of his wife and children, a friend took him to a real estate seminar that changed his life. That seminar helped Vertucci to realize how simple it is for people to find, improve and rent or sell properties. The information was a lifeline for Nick Vertucci and he has used it to make several million dollars. When working with real estate helped Vertucci get his get his bills paid, he promised himself when he got financially secure he would show others what working with real estate can do for them.

Once Nick Vertucci became a multimillionaire, he began investing his time and energy into fulfilling his promise. First he created his ‘Fortunes In Flipping’ program that helped many people make money in real estate. But Vertucci wanted to make the information he learned about buying and selling real estate and how it could dramatically change people’s lives accessible to more people. So he created the NV Real Estate Academy. The academy offers a step by step guide people can use to learn how to find properties to buy, get the money they need to purchase it and get a list of people ready to buy it.

With the type of guidance the NV Real Estate Academy offers, people of all ages educational levels and from all parts of the country have been able to make lots of money buying and selling real estate. The process is so simple, most people are surprised when they begin applying the techniques they leaned at the NV Real Estate Academy and the money starts rolling in. Plus, Nick Vertucci is there to answer any questions students in the school have about the entire process.

Nick Vertucci is just an average person that was given a phenomenal opportunity and made the most of it. He had lived in his van, lost all he had accumulated in the crash and was struggling to stay afloat when he got involved in real estate. Now he is a multimillionaire.

Sheriff of Maricopa County

Former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio, who was recently granted a presidential pardon by Donald Trump, was once again confronted in the media by longtime foes, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, who called the President’s decision “the perfect marriage of two corrupt individuals.”

Throughout his career, Joe Arpaio was called out for a number of his misdeeds by Larkin and Lacey’s Phoenix New Times, which would eventually lead to their unlawful arrests at their homes. While it has been ten years since the brazen violation of constitutional rights occurred, feelings between both parties remain raw.

The early 1970’s was a period rife with turmoil in the United States, with significant protests mounting throughout the country regarding the United States’ participation in the Vietnam War, and combined with the conservative nature of the coverage executed by the traditional media outlets, the need for an alternative voice was at an all-time high.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey – at the time, merely dropouts from Arizona State University, had become increasingly involved with the anti-war movement that had begun gaining traction, and after the shootings on the campus of Kent State University, in which four students lost their lives at the hands of Ohio National Guardsmen, decided to jump directly into the fray. Joined by fellow students, Karen Lofgren, Nick Stupey, Hal Smith, and Frank Fiore, Michael Lacey launched the inaugural issue of the Phoenix New Times, to much acclaim.

In two years time, Jim Larkin joined the party, taking on the business aspects of the publication, which proved to be a wonderful matching of the minds, as the stock of the Phoenix New Times quickly elevated, particularly with the involvement of J.C. Penny, who took out full-page ads in the weekly paper.

The latter half of the decade proved to be a time of peaks and valleys, but by the arrival of the 1980’s, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey had implemented a number of new columns, including a wildly popular personals section, as well as a section featuring satirical comics strips by Bob Boze Bell.

This would give the Phoenix New Times a new set of readers, in effect, taking the brand even further.

In 1983, New Times Media would make its first major acquisition, purchasing Patricia Calhoun’s Westword – a publication based in Denver that had seen a significant dip since its launch six years prior.

This would begin a period of expansion for the team of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, as over the next few years, they would go on to acquire a total of 17 publications, including Miami New Times, LA Weekly, OC Weekly, Nashville Scene, and the counterculture publication that started it all, New York City’s Village Voice.

Sticking to their trend of shedding light on the issues that mainstream media refused to cover, Jim Larkin and Michael garnered an audience that stretched from coast to coast – maintaining this a notable readership for the next four decades.

Today Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey head the Frontera Fund and recently delved back into the world of narrative journalism with the launch of FrontPage Confidential.


Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Create two Anti-Arpaio Organization

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were two of the first journalists to target Joe Arpaio. Before MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post, or the New York Times even had Joe Arpaio on their radar, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were exposing Arpaio for the corrupt law enforcement officer he was in the pages of the Phoenix New Times, their premiere publication.

Joe Arpaio was first elected as Sheriff of Maricopa County in the early 1990s and held the position for 24 years. During this time, immigrants were mistreated and abused by Arpaio and his deputies. Joe Arpaio was even ordered to stay away from all things immigration law by a judge. An order which Joe Arpaio promptly ignored. Eventually, when it came to public attention that Joe Arpaio was using racial profiling as a policing method, he was charged with criminal contempt of court.

This isn’t the only crime committed by Joe Arpaio, according to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. One look through the archives of the Phoenix New Times will reveal a long list of potential charges against Joe Arpaio.

When the Phoenix New Times began to investigate the nondisclosure of assets, Joe Arpaio served them with a subpoena, ordering them to reveal information like who the readers, writers, and editors of the Phoenix New Times are. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin then proceeded to publish an article about the subpoena. They found themselves in handcuffs, arrested by Joe Arpaio’s deputies.

In 2013, a judge finally ruled in favor of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, calling the arrest by Joe Arpaio illegal. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were given 3.7 million dollars by the court.

Instead of spoiling themselves with new cars and new clothes, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin started up a new charitable organization called The Frontera Fund. This organization works to benefit the Hispanic community by funding and working with other charities.

Four years after the founding of The Frontera Fund, Front Page Confidential was born. This is where you will find the newest efforts against Joe Arpaio. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are attempting to stop Arpaio from earning a Senate seat by revealing his illegal, immoral, and unjust actions to the American public.

Paul Mampilly’s Warning About Healthcare Stocks

It’s been recently announced on the news that JP Morgan, Berkshire Hathaway and e-commerce giant Amazon have announced they have a new system for getting healthcare that could cut out the “middleman” when it comes to consumer purchases. It’s a complex issue to explain since the layers of healthcare all have profits flowing from pharmaceutical companies, to drug retailers like CVS and Walgreens, healthcare providers and networks as well the insurance companies. But in wake of this announcement meany healthcare stocks took a big hit in the stock market, though Paul Mampilly, an expert at Banyan Hill Publishing warned this was coming. What Mampilly says is that Amazon’s entering the drug sale marketplace will cause healthcare stocks to drop way down, and when they reach a point that makes them look good to buy, investors may be eager to snatch them up. But the bad news is they’re not likely to ever rebound.

Paul Mampilly doesn’t simply tell his followers what they want to hear. He gives them real advice on how to find good stocks that he himself learned during his Wall Street career, and he’s not a broker at Banyan Hill; he’s an author who tells his audience how to build their own portfolio. Prior to joining Banyan Hill, he spent several years in the hedge fund industry and more than 10 years in big banking. He got his bachelor’s degree in economics and finance from Montclair State University, and his master’s from Fordham University. He began in banking as a researcher for Deutsche Bank in 1991 and moved up the ranks in the offices of ING, Sears, Banker’s Trust and others.

Paul Mampilly gained major recognition from Barron’s magazine in 2006 when he joined the team at Kinetics International Fund and helped raise client AUM from $6 billion to $25 billion. He was touted for pooling client investments in funds that brought upwards of 40% in annual returns. Paul Mampilly also invested $50 million in alternative funds during the 2008 Templeton Foundation competition and ended with $88 million despite the recession reaching its peak at that time. He also was an early investor in Netflix and Sarepta Therapeutics prior to their stock reaching incredible highs. Mampilly’s success enabled him to retire from the corporate life early, but he feels his work is just begun in informing his audience on how to make stock investing work for them.
