Are your friends dragging you down?
Do you hang out with naysayers who are always poo-pooing on your dreams?
Do you want to hang out with a group of people who will inspire you to go for it?
If so, I feel you. I did that for many years. It always kept me STUCK.
It wasn’t until I started hanging out with some really amazing people that I saw what was possible.
My standards raised. I started taking actions I never had before.
Now, I wish I could hang out in person with each and every one of you, but that’s just not possible.
Facebook groups are the fix for that.
And yeah, social media gets a bad rep. It’s addicting, it’s a waste of time, it prevents real human interaction.
I agree with all that.
But still, I use Facebook every day as a business tool...to get my message out there, to network, to connect, to find like-minded people.

A lot of you know that, last year, I stopped actively wholesaling and flipping houses for profits.
My business partner and I split up and we went our separate ways.
A big reason it happened was because the business we had was not...
I’m about to share with you one of the most obvious yet overlooked and not-spoken-about truths in the world of real estate investing.
Truth #1 - Flipping/wholesaling houses is a JOB.
Yes, you’re not sitting in a cubicle, so it’s better.
But it’s still a job you have to show up to everyday. You have to do lots of different activities to make those types of businesses successful.
Marketing, sales, finances, operations, project/rehab management, disposition, transaction coordination, office management, etc...
Then everyone says “But Brian, I’m going to automate my flipping/wholesaling business so I can step out of it”.
First of all, I wonder why they want to step out of it. “I thought you were passionate about it?”
(wink wink, we’ll save that for another time)
But I say to them instead: “So who’s going to manage your people once it’s automated? They aren’t robots or software. They are human...
