About Rick Rogers JD/MBA:
After completing a bachelor’s degree in business and psychology at Elmhurst College, Rick became a licensed Real Estate Broker. He then went on to get his MBA at Drake University and his law degree at Loyola University. He has spent nearly his entire career in corporate, industrial, and residential real estate and has completed thousands of transactions locally, across the nation, and around the world.
As a boy growing up in a large family with modest means in the Chicago area, Rick spent most of his childhood living in rental homes. During his teenage years, the family was finally able to buy a home with an FHA mortgage. Unfortunately, that home was lost to foreclosure long before Rick became an attorney.
After the real estate crash in 2008, Rick opened his own law firm specifically to aid families struggling to keep their home during the foreclosure crisis. Over the last ten years, The Rogers Law Group has helped more than 2,000 people save their homes through foreclosure defense, mediation, loan modification, bankruptcy, and the Friendly Foreclosure strategy. Helping distressed homeowners has been Rick's crusade.
The hope in writing this book is that revealing his Friendly Foreclosure Strategy will help thousands more deserving homeowners across the country save their treasured homes, with or without his help, after all other efforts have failed. The Rogers Law Group continues to serve distressed homeowners today, while Rick privately invests in Friendly Foreclosures, helping nice families save their homes.
What inspires you to write?
The right book can change your life – the book that changed mine was "How to Wake Up the Financial Genius Inside You" by Mark O. Haroldsen. That book put my life on a new trajectory which actually lead me to real estate and the subject of my new book ForeclosureFriendlies.com.
Tell us about your writing process.
For the most part, I wrote the book by stream of thought, then crafted an outline and put my draft through a rigorous editing process where it was read, rearranged, and revised repeatedly until I was satisfied with the final product.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I used several sources while considering how to publish. I was greatly intrigued by Gillian Perkin's YouTube channel and the step-by-step process she used to both write and publish her book on Amazon. I also relied on Publish. Promote. Profit. by Rob Kosberg which I round to be very informative. I also had a few friends who had previously self-published books on Amazon and they were able to offer helpful tips throughout the process.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think we are going to see many more self-published authors in the future.
