Get your foot in the door. You'll love the G
Cheers Jimmy! It's great to meet another aussie on here!

That wouldn't be a shabby idea! I've been tracking the Pre LP Gallardo for a while now and it looks like they've held their value at about $140k for the past 2-3 years even with more millage which is epic! I've read of owners putting 15-20k km into the Gallardo and getting out of them without losing anything.

Something that's always excited me is the Gallardo Supperlegerra. There's currently 2 Pre LP SLs on carsales and start at the $220k mark and the 4 LP570 SL start at at the $270k mark. You may have seen the Verde Green 2011 570 SL for $320k on carsales which is Huracan figure which is incredible.

I'd be happy to wait a little and jumping into an SL due to how extraordinary they are. *starts drooling* I think I'd have better luck convicing the Mrs too if I pitched it as an investment.

What was your first Lamborghini?

Cheers,
Koomz

Hey how is the activewear brand going? I had a similar idea similar not too long ago, but never found a good production company to partner with. It seems like a great thing to get into, the marketing/branding aspect is really the hard part though. Have you faced challenges with that?

Hey sgfreak96!

It's going okay so far! You've definitely hit the nail on the head there about marketing and branding being difficult. The Australian activewear market is growing so rapidly and really trying to carve out our own name has proven challenging. Fortunately though, I've got a pretty epic group of friends who've been supporting the brand and that's been great. I had a little drop shipping business about a year ago supplying 4WD parts and a lot of what I learnt then, I was able to impliment into the brand.

Absolutely love your YouTube channel too! Absolutely loved your review of the Twin Turbo V10 R8. *Drools* I've just subscribed btw.

I'll shoot you a private message soon and we can chat more.

Enjoy your week mate!

Awesome, I look forward to talking with you more in PM's about your business, that would be great, and drop shipping is exactly what I was thinking. Also thank you so much for watching the video, it really means a lot. I haven't made many videos recently, but I know there's good stuff brewing for the future

Great intro. Welcome! It's never too early to start setting goals.

May I humbly suggest you start putting some time frames on your goals, and set some intermediate goals. What income do you want to be making in 2, 5, 10 years. How big do you want your investment/real estate portfolios to be worth in those timeframes? Let's get you on a more defined path to your dreams.

Welcome. I have to second what Murciful said. Goals without deadlines are just dreams.
So I am going to sleep with a playboy bunny before I am 70,(I am married so that may have to be put off a few years) build my own submarine before I am 65 . Build the first antigravity drive and design a new internal combustion engine that is way more efficient. Remember don't set goals too high or you may never reach them. The sub will be easy. Pretty simple stuff. I already have a fundamentally new type of engine design I am working on. If that comes through...……..bunnies beware. I will have to outlive my wife for that one.Remember STAY REALISTIC Lee

Damn it, just realized the extent of my hypocrisy. So I'm setting a goal is to purchase my next Lambo by April. If I hit a specific liquid asset goal by April 1st, it will be a 2016 or 2017 Aventador SV, as long as I can find a suitable one in blue. Otherwise, it'll be a 2017 or 2018 Huracan. $400 k is sill a percentage of my net worth that would make me uncomfortable dropping on a vehicle, but 6 months should be enough time to move the needle. Fortunately I don't need to design a submarine engine or anything
