Nick Vertucci Gets More Of His Story Out There Through His New Book

It wasn’t the easy road for the now retired residential real estate investor Nick Vertucci, but it was the best one in the end because he finally achieved his life’s goals. Vertucci just had a book released detailing all the hardships he endured while trying to make it in the real estate industry, but also explaining how he found the answers and made it to where he is today. A former host of ABC’s “Shark Tank” expressed his great approval of it and said it was a fantastic read not only for people considering making money in rental properties, but also for those who want to hear a true rags to riches story.

The Nick Vertucci story could be summed up in saying it was a journey to success, then from success to failure, but then back to success. The first success he had was managing to build a computer parts sales business, a company that helped get him out of a background of poverty and allowed him to live comfortably for a while. He had thought that company would be what he would run all the way until he retired, but he didn’t foresee the major economic crisis of 2000 that hit the tech industry hard and forced him to close that business. Nick Vertucci now had to work through a period of failure in which he knew he would need to build something that could bring in much more income and be much more stable. He had never assumed real estate would be it, but after going to a seminar, he realized how far he could go in it.

Nick Vertucci had to put in some work to keep the initial properties he invested in afloat. He had his share of setbacks and losses, but through several changes and adaptations he made, he finally turned the profits to a point where he could pay off all his debt and no longer have to worry about returning to bankruptcy. Vertucci then founded an academy where the years if knowledge he gained were put into easy format to follow, and to this day many have come away from that academy armed with knowledge to succeed in the market.

Tampa Comes From Behind in Big Win

The 2017-18 NHL season has been a very competitive one. There have been several different teams in the league that have shown that they are quite dominant and could do very well when the playoffs start. One team that has continued to be extremely competitive in the NHL is the Tampa Bay Lightning. The first 70 games of the season, the Lightning have won 50 games and have the best record in the Eastern Conference. They also look like a favorite to lock up home ice advantage through the playoffs.

This past week, the team continued to impress people with a very impressive come-from-behind victory that they had. On Wednesday, after falling behind the Toronto Maple Leafs by score of 3-0, Tampa Bay made a courageous come back and ended up winning the game by a score of four goals to three (http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/bruins/2018/03/nhl_roundup_lightning_erase_3_goal_deficit_rally_past_maple_leafs_4_3).

During the game, the Lightning struggled at first to gain the cohesion that they had all year long. While they fell behind early, the team did not give up. Towards the end of the second period, Victor Hedman scored his 13th goal of the year to bring the game closer. While they were still down by 2 goals heading into the third period, the team looked very dominant despite the disadvantage. Within the first four minutes of the period, the team was able to tie the game after Ryan McDonagh and Nikita Kucherov were able to score goals. Then, with about 9 minutes to go in the game, Alex Killorn was able to score the game winning goals.

While the Lightning were able to hold on to the advantage, the end of the game was very exciting. In fact, the Maple Leafs were able to get a power play advantage late in the game, but the defense and goal keeping of Tampa Bay was able to keep Toronto out of the goal.

This ended up being a very big win for Tampa Bay. Not only did they build on their first place lead, but they were able to look tough against a formidable opponent. At this point, Toronto looks as if they will easily make the playoffs and could be seeing Tampa Bay again in the near future if the two get matched up.
