Did you guys know that the first wholesale deal I ever did...
The tenant in the house INSISTED I go get him Burger King breakfast...
Before I could get in the house to take pictures...
To hopefully sell the deal to my mentor?
I left the house, dejected, and drove to Burger King...
Spend some of the little money I had on the "full spread" he demanded.
Got back to the house, holding a tray of orange juice and coffee.
Bag of sausage biscuits and hashbrowns.
There was a pit bull chained in the front yard, barking his ass off at me.
His chain stopped before the door...
But I had to run down the edge of the yard first...
To get to the area where he couldn't reach me!
So I juked right..
Faked him out a bit...
Then sprinted down the other side of the yard...
Hurdling just out of his reach (think of the football move where the runner kinda hurdles so the defender can't grab his legs as he reaches the end zone!)
All the while making sure not to spill Your Honor, Mr. Tenant's OJ or coffee.
(Just in case you missed the last episode where I explained it, the podcast is now called "12 Houses To Freedom" and has a new logo. But, the content will remain the same!)
In this episode, I share a POWERFUL tip that allows me to make great strides towards my goals everyday.
Before I started using this technique, I spent a lot of days frazzled, anxious, confused, worn out, and frustrated.
After implementing this one simple change, EVERYTHING turned around for me.
I now end my work days (most of the time) feeling accomplished, productive, and REWARDED by what I've done. Which is a key to sustained motivation.
When I first got started in real estate…
I had A MILLION QUESTIONS.
It seemed like every single thing I did created 3 new questions…
And there I was again, confused on what to do next.
It REALLY halted my progress.
How did I solve that problem?
Well, by bugging people, to be honest.
I would call or text different investors I knew all day…
“Hey man, got a quick question”
“Hey man, can you look at this deal for me?”
“Hey, uh, is 50K a good amount to offer on this deal?”
I could tell I was being annoying, but I was really desperate to succeed, so I kept doing it.
In hindsight, I wish I would have just had someone to make a formal agreement with…
Where they would agree to help me with any question I had, whenever I needed it…
They would look over my shoulder, and make sure I didn’t make any stupid mistakes when buying houses...
And I would do a little something to help them out too.
That’s why I created...
In this episode, I explain the new name and fresh look that will be coming to the podcast next week!
The new name will be "12 Houses To Freedom", and there will be a new logo.
You won't need to resubscribe or anything.
Thank you for your support as I continue to try and make this podcast more valuable for you!
Hey guys, I want to let you know that I appreciate all of you who read my emails.
I have some time over the next couple days to answer your questions and give you whatever guidance you need.
(I may make you a video reply if your question requires it!)
So anyways, what’s your biggest question that you have right now?
I’m standing by (on way too much coffee)...
In this episode, I interview Justin Wilmot of Freedom Moguls. Justin is a real estate powerhouse flipping hundreds or houses valued over $100MM, and has helped thousands of students across the nation gain financial freedom.
He's also a cool, laid back surfer who learned to put lifestyle first after a major burnout. In this episode we dive into the mindset required for success, and go over the #1 thing that holds most beginners back.
Before Justin Wilmot became a Real Estate Mogul buying, renovating, wholesaling, developing properties and teaching others how to gain financial freedom by doing the same, he had his share of obstacles. To being raised in a toxic environment, barely passing grade school, dropping out of community college and bankrupting his first company, Justin's story of overcoming these brutal obstacles is real proof anyone with a burning desire can make it in life.
Fast forward 10 years, he has become a real estate powerhouse flipping hundreds or houses valued over...
Last week I was in Phoenix at Brendon Burchard’s “High Performance Academy”.
It’s a seminar where we learned all about how to consistently perform at high levels over the LONG RUN.
(If you haven’t been to that event, you NEED to go. It was amazing and permanently life changing. It’s not that expensive either.)
One thing he said really stuck with me:
“Lack of attention leads to fleeting motivation”
In other words, the inability to focus in on just a handful of things….
Leads to a loss of motivation to do ANYTHING.
This means that if you sit down to work…
Unsure of exactly what you need to do that day to move the needle…
You’ll end up scattered..
All over the place…
Checking email frantically…
Just sort of bouncing around and hoping that gold will fall out of the sky and solve all your problems.
If that goes on for too long, guess what happens?
You start to lose motivation to even continue.
When I decided to become a coach/educator/digital marketer guy…
I thought “Maaannnn, this is gonna be easy”.
“Social media, the digital age, it makes marketing so much easier”
First thing I did was write a book.
Tossed it up for sale in a book funnel and on Amazon…
Then I said, cool, I have a book, what’s next?
Then I started a podcast.
Because, all the digital marketer guys have podcasts.
Obviously this podcast is gonna blow up and I’m gonna make millions and help people and stuff.
Got the podcast up, started doing once a week episodes.
Then I said, what’s next?
Well, all successful dudes have Facebook groups, it’s the thing to do.
So, I started a Facebook Group
(Which you can join here by the way: https://www.facebook.com/groups/12housestofreedom/)
Started posting occasionally in there, did a few Facebook lives.
Thought to myself “This is gonna be HUGE!”
Then I thought “What’s next?”
In this episode, I interview Michael Zuber, the author of "One Rental At A Time". Michael is a super sharp guy who shares his journey on how he got into real estate investing and eventually quit his job for good. He now lives off passive income and gets to spend his time writing, teaching, and giving back to others.
This is one you don't want to miss!
In this episode, I interview Gino Barbaro, who not only has 1,100 multifamily units, but is also a coach and host of the Wheelbarrow Profits podcast (which is the top multifamily podcast on Itunes). Gino breaks down the mindset required to get into multifamily, and to crush it in business and life overall. I really enjoyed this episode because Gino is also just a great guy and loves to serve.
Don't miss this one!
