How Tony Javier Scaled to 7 Companies & 800 Flips By Doing Less In the Business
One of the most harmful fallacies of entrepreneurship is that we have to remain entrenched in the business if we want to be profitable. Unfortunately, trying to hold onto everything can actually have the complete opposite effect - it can kill all prospects of growth, scalability and freedom. In today’s episode, I talk to an entrepreneur who went from the burnout of doing everything in the business, to freedom and multiple successful companies without piling on more stress. What was the wake up call that made him change everything? How do we mitigate the cash flow struggles that come with flipping? In this episode, real estate investor, coach, and founder of Real Estate Masters, Tony Javier shares his evolution in business. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode How to unlock massive growth in our businesses Every business owner starts out working in their business, but if we want to have real freedom and impact, we have to transition to working on our businesses. The longer we delay this step, the more we stunt our scalability. Why the cash flow struggle is a “problem of success” Flipping is a capital-hungry investing model, and many people worry that a lack of cash flow means they are failing. But even the most successful and wealthy people struggle with cash flow because their capital is being deployed in multiple directions. The power of gap funding for newer investors As people get into investing deals, they often struggle to get the money to get the deal in place before the mortgage kicks in. Gap funding has become a helpful and relevant solution that provides the cash flow to get them over that hump. Guest Bio- Tony Javier is a real estate investor, coach, speaker and owner of 7 companies, including Real Estate Masters and Professional Home Buyers which is currently listed on the Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest growing companies in the Nation. This business now runs fully automated in Wichita, KS.

How to Win as a Likeable Salesperson w/Steve Trang
There are two massive lies that pervade real estate investing - that you can succeed without direct actions that generate wealth, and that you have to take advantage of people to win. We can choose to do things differently. Doing what other people aren’t willing to do is what will propel us to achieve our wildest dreams and make an impact. It’s possible to sell and still be likable. We can be the people who create an experience where consumers feel helped and valued, not taken advantage of. What separates a good salesperson from a bad one? How do people stop their own growth by delegating too fast? In this episode, I’m joined by entrepreneur, sales trainer, podcast host and founder of the Real Estate Disruptors movement, Steve Trang. He shares the reasons behind his success, and how he’s redefining what it means to be a salesperson. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode Why Steve did so well in 2020 when other entrepreneurs were having a hard time Steve, like many other entrepreneurs, saw massive success in 2020, but it didn’t come out of thin air. It’s the culmination of a strong foundation, hard work, consistency, and the willingness to do what others aren’t. The groundwork his team laid over the years paid off. The difference between a good salesperson and a bad one The worst type of sales training for investors teaches ways to take advantage of people in a tough spot. You’re not just dealing with a property, you’re dealing with a home and painful experiences like divorce, death, or financial strain. Ethics and integrity always matter. Why we can’t win without consistent action There’s no such thing as a get-rich-quick scheme in real estate investing. Many people struggle because they want to skip past the hard work it takes to succeed. In this business, you can’t delegate cold calling, it’s what actually creates the wealth. Guest Bio- Steve Trang is an entrepreneur, investor, author, speaker, podcast host, and sales trainer. He is the founder of the Real Estate Disruptors movement. He started his podcast in the middle of 2018 to inspire wholesalers and real estate agents to double their incomes by adding a second leg to their business. The podcast has now grown to ten thousand followers, with new members of the community sharing their success stories every week. Steve's legacy will be to create 100 Millionaires. Steve trains the best salespeople across the country on how to effectively communicate with prospects to learn what prospects truly want, which results in more sales. https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevetrang https://www.disruptors.com/max

Lessons On Note Investing From an Investor Who Survived 2008 w/Jorie Aulston
Some of today’s most successful real estate investors cut their teeth during the 2008 recession, and they have a unique understanding of how to tailor their strategies for down markets. The crash served as the perfect training ground to identify opportunities and potential pitfalls. What we’re seeing in the market right now is all too familiar. We’re clearly headed for a huge downturn, and we need to prepare by creating models that match the market. The smartest investors are flocking to the models that give them the most control. Instead of just being another flipper or wholesaler in the market, you want to be the bank and the person controlling the deals and the properties. Without control, we’ll end up on the hamster wheel hunting for our next deal. This is where note investing comes in, and it’s the perfect model for this market. What makes note investing such a great model for people who want more control? How do we get started? In this episode, real estate investor and co-host of Shut Up and Invest, Jorie Aulston shares how he navigated the recession market and emerged on the other side with a great investing model. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The biggest mistake people make when the market is high The number one rule of successful investing is to buy low and sell high. Right now a lot of people are jumping into flips and deals at the height of the market, and breaking this rule in a very dangerous way. This is actually the worst time to buy, and when the market inevitably goes down, a lot of people are in for a rude awakening. Don’t dive into a hot market because you think it’s just going to keep going up. Why wholesaling doesn’t give us enough control Wholesaling is a great investing model in certain markets, but it shouldn’t be your sole source of income. If you rely on it too heavily, you’ll end up creating a job, and a transactional business that will always suffer from boom-and-bust cycles. You want to shift from hustling for the next deal, to a model that allows you to have more control and cash flow because that’s what leads to real wealth. Why note investing is a great tool to have in your business Many investors turn down certain deals because they don’t fit into a traditional model like flipping or wholesaling, but there’s usually a way to leverage a creative investing model so that a deal can fit into something different. With note investing, you always have another channel to make a deal happen. Guest Bio- Jorie Aulston is a real estate investor and entrepreneur, founder of The Aulston Group, and NA Capital Group, and Co-Host of the podcast Shut Up and Invest. He has 15 years of experience in helping investors achieve their dreams of investing in real estate, and a vast knowledge of several investment strategies. From long-term buy and hold, to quick-fix and flips and also seller financing and purchasing and selling notes. Jorie has also been an active wholesaler for the last 10 years, and he has done deals in multiple states throughout the U.S. For more information, visit https://www.respectedhomesales.com, follow @theaulstongroup on Instagram, and go to https://www.shutupandinvest.com to learn more about the podcast.

Integrity: The Most Valuable Quality Every Investor Should Possess w/Dave Holman
When capital is the barrier to our ability to scale, and we’re tapped out on our own resources, partnering with investors is the best path to more deals. Whether we borrow money from family or private investors, people want to work with us because they know they can trust us. Integrity and good stewardship of other people’s money is the key to a good reputation in this business, and it’s the secret weapon to continuing to raise money. Making our investors whole should always be our top priority - even if it means walking away from a deal that doesn’t serve them. How do we build a foundation of honesty and integrity in our investing business? What are some of the biggest mistakes investors make with syndication deals? In this episode, entrepreneur, author, investor and founder of Holman Homes, Dave Holman talks about his entrepreneurship journey, and why integrity is so important in the investing game. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode Why integrity is more important than the dealSometimes investors get so emotionally invested in a deal they overlook the risk and end up losing people’s money. A return of capital is a lot more important than an uncertain return on investment. Be willing to walk away from a deal that’s too risky - investors will trust us and want to keep working with us because of it. The importance of trusting the people we partner with The deal, the location, the asset class and the capital don’t matter as much as the integrity of the people involved in the deal. Too many people blindly leap into deals without doing their own due diligence, and making sure the people they are going into the deal with have a good track record of putting their investors first. How to find the opportunity in this marketThere are hard times on the horizon for our economy, but that doesn’t mean we should bury our heads in the sand. The people who prepare and position themselves to scale will catapult their lives, their finances, and their wealth. Many things are changing in the commercial real estate space, but the real opportunity is in the ability to repurpose assets and reframe them to meet an existing need. Guest Bio- Dave Holman is an entrepreneur, author, investor and founder of Holman Homes. Dave leads a team of experts in acquiring and managing residential and commercial properties that benefit residents, investors, and the planet. Dave grew up in North Yarmouth, Maine before attending Carleton College.

Dave has written three books: Youth Renewing the Countryside, Coffee Smuggler, and Cyber Fire.

It’s a chance to explore your entrepreneurial style, benefit from the real estate market, and put your unique skills and abilities to good use. Even though investing while you have a full-time job requires a different focus, if you’re smart and strategic, you still can gain access to capital and great deals.

Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The easiest way to start your investing Househacking is the perfect way for beginners to start dabbling in investing. With this strategy, you would buy a house, and live in it, while also renting out. If you do it properly, your renter will pay the majority of your mortgage payment, and zero cost your biggest expense. How to balance your job with being an investor Managing multiple properties on your own is often difficult and time consuming.

Unlocking The Power of Business Credit & The Money Strategies of the Wealthy w/Andrew Rey
To most ordinary people, it seems like wealthy people play the finance game from a secret playbook we can’t access. They may use tactics that are different to what we’ve been taught - but the good news is that this knowledge is available and we can leverage it in our own financial plans. Business credit and LLCs are the most common ways that wealthy individuals set themselves up for success in raising money, and protecting themselves financially. On the other hand, we’re taught that ANY debt is bad and that we need to be afraid of it. Removing the emotional block we have around debt will allow us to leverage it intelligently and strategically to the benefit of our personal and business life. Why is an LLC such a powerful business and financial vehicle? How do wealthy people use the tax code to their advantage? What are the steps we need to take to build business credit? In this episode, business credit and funding expert, and best selling author of Entrepreneurial Money Secrets, Andrew Rey discusses his unique journey to unlock the powerful financial strategies used by the wealthy. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The truth about the world’s success stories Some of the richest and most successful people have failed on multiple occasions, and even lost their entire wealth, only to rebuild themselves over time. They don’t see their missteps as mistakes or failures, but rather as learning experiences, that helped them course correct and build the right systems for success. Why a corporation is such a powerful financial vehicle A corporation isn’t just a business structure, it’s a powerful entity that can unlock capital and financial opportunities. A corporation legally has the rights and privileges of a person. It can pay for things and build credit. If we employ it to build and scale our business, we can expand in a way that our own personal credit doesn’t allow. How the wealthy play the money game differently The same tax code and financial laws that allow wealthy people to shield themselves through corporate entities and apply intelligent tax strategies is available to all of us. People often feel like leveraging business credit is taking advantage of something, but this isn’t the case. We have to remove the mental and emotional blocks around how rich people make money if we want the same strategies to work for us. Guest Bio- Andrew Rey is a Business Credit and Business Funding Expert, Speaker and Best Selling Author of Entrepreneurial Money Secrets: Unlock the Power of Corporate Credit to Leverage Access to Business Capital and Win. His mission is to help business owners start, build and scale their businesses using little known yet highly effective business credit and financing strategies that most people are still completely clueless about.

How Tyler Cauble Went From a Zero Net Worth to $1 Million in 1 Year
The real estate investor’s journey requires uncomfortable sacrifices, especially in the beginning. We have to sacrifice time, money and our own comfort to create a business worth having. The most successful people who came from nothing have faced the tough choice between their immediate financial needs, and the money required to keep the business going for the foreseeable future. For my guest today, that choice was between paying for electricity or paying his assistant. He chose to keep his business running while dealing with discomfort in his own lifestyle. In one year, that sacrifice paid off, taking him from a struggling new investor to a budding commercial empire. What are some of the biggest things aspiring entrepreneurs don’t take into account at the start of the journey? How does Tyler build relationships and generate business? In this episode, I’m joined by commercial investor, Tyler Cauble. He shares the hurdles he overcame to become a successful entrepreneur at 28. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode How to navigate the uncertainty of today’s marketReal estate is always going to have cycles and what determines our outcome is our mindset, not the external circumstances. Instead of panicking and pulling back, learn from history, and create a strategy to take advantage of down cycles. You can either have an abundance mentality, or fall apart and miss out on opportunity. Why age shouldn’t hold us back in commercial investingCommercial real estate runs on relationships and generally who has been around the longest. In order to break through and start getting deals, boost your credibility by sharing what you do and building relationships through social media. Even if you don’t have the relationships and a long track record, young investors can still leverage their social media experience to win. The key mentality that sets successful entrepreneurs apartDiscomfort and sacrifice are a huge part of starting a business. Many people don’t succeed because they choose instant gratification over the long-term positive outcome. If we’re willing to sacrifice our comfort right now, and focus on what benefits the business, we nurture the mindset that leads to high returns. Guest Bio- Tyler Cauble is Founding Principal and President of The Cauble Group, an East Nashville-based commercial real estate brokerage serving the Greater Nashville Area. He's a native Nashvillian that has not only been a witness to the city's tremendous growth, but is also involved in it through his developments, renovation projects, and volunteer work.

Devin Elder On Instantly Building Trust & Credibility With Investors
Personal funding doesn’t have to be the barrier that keeps us from becoming real estate investors. One alternate strategy is to tap into other people’s money, and we can only do that if we learn to be good stewards of investor capital. Delivering for our investors has to be the most important thing, and at the top of our list of priorities in business. If we set up a win-win scenario for all parties involved, we will never run out of sources of capital and investment opportunities. What are some of the ways we can build trust and credibility with investors? How can investors prepare for what’s coming in the market? In this episode, I’m joined by real estate entrepreneur Devin Elder. He shares how he built his business from the ground up to over 2000 doors. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode Why we shouldn't focus on the cost of capital, but on the opportunity People get hung up on the cost of capital, but it’s not the cost of capital that we need to be focused on, it’s access to capital. If you don’t have access to capital, you’re not going to be able to get started. Consider the cost to your business of not doing the deal in the first place. How to create massive trust and credibility If we create trust and credibility with our investors, we create the opportunity to do more deals. One of the most powerful things Devin does is paying his investors a week early. The impact this simple action has on an investor’s psychology and trust level is something we can’t buy. How to dial in one model so that it works for us The mechanics of multifamily are pretty straight forward, and once the machine is running well, our focus needs to be scaling this winning formula. We often get tempted to get into other investing structures, but we should only do that when the first financial source is dialed in. Guest Bio- Devin Elder is a San Antonio, Texas native, Real Estate entrepreneur, and founder of DJE Texas Group. After graduating with a Bachelor in Business Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio, he worked for Rackspace, Acelity, and a handful of other small tech companies in Sales, Management, and Operations roles before founding DJE Texas Management Group and transitioning full time to Real Estate entrepreneurship. Today, Devin Elder is a principal in a number of Real Estate investment companies and owns a portfolio of over 600 units of multifamily investment properties. Mr. Elder has been a featured guest on some of the world’s leading investment podcasts, Business Insider, and various television programs discussing Real Estate investing.

Choosing a Bulletproof Financial Investing Model w/Bob Fraser
One of the fundamental truths about investing is that the stock market is incredibly volatile and fickle, and that the people who do well over time opt for a more stable wealth building vehicle. Many investors who were burned in the last recession have worked on building something that is more stable - and very often that’s investing in loans. The people who invest in loans often do better than the people who focus on equity investment. In this episode, I talk to an investor whose fund is primarily focused on residential mortgage notes - a vastly untapped and overlooked investing model. How does this model work, and why is it so different to everything else out there? Why are stocks so risky in the market we’re in? In this episode, I’m joined by CFO and founder of Aspen Funds, Bob Fraser. He talks about his investing model, and why it’s critical to choose a stable investment. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The best way to engage with the stock market When the market drops, there is a great opportunity to take advantage of the drop in stock prices. But when we buy stocks, we have to know when to get out. We need to pick our exit point, and be happy with the gains we get, instead of waiting for the highest point of the market. How this market drives the worst kind of inflation Easy money produces asset price inflation which we all consider positive, but it’s actually a bad thing. This is what will ultimately drive the drop in the market and the volatility that makes the stock market so risky. Why residential mortgage notes are different Residential mortgage notes are different from investor notes because of how the debt is handled. If an investment property has negative equity on it, the investor is going to give the home back to the lenders. With a residential property, the owner is more likely to stay in the home. Guest Bio- Bob Fraser is the CFO and founder of Aspen Funds. He is on a mission to help investors take advantage of one of the most effective and overlooked avenues of real estate investing: residential mortgage notes. As principal of Aspen Funds, Bob has purchased more than 1,000 mortgage notes earning double-digit annual returns without the risk and volatility of traditional investing options. Bob has 20+ years’ experience as a finance and technology executive and is a Magna Cum Laude U.C. Berkeley computer scientist and a former Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner. Bob is responsible for financial management, portfolio modeling, as well as systems and processes, designing and deploying Aspen’s scalable state-of-the-art back-end platform.

Blake Stargel on What It Takes to Win in a Competitive Luxury Market
When the market is good, people flood into real estate on the promise of earning tons of money. The problem is, a market this good can only be followed by a huge correction, and newly minted agents who wanted instant gratification will be in for a rude awakening. Real estate is a long-term play, not a path to short term gain. It takes time and hard work to really get traction. My guest today is a young agent who has put in the time and work to succeed in real estate, carving out a niche in one of the most competitive real estate markets - Los Angeles.

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode How to break into a competitive market The key to success in a competitive market like Los Angeles is joining someone who is already established, and working with someone who already knows everything about the properties. Partnerships, networking and relationship-building is key. What we can expect from the real estate market in 2021 Since covid, the world has been flipped upside down. Even though the market is hot right now, a market correction is certainly on its way. The combination of pent up consumer demand, low interest rates and extra cash is causing the bubble we’re in right now, but it won’t last forever. What we need to be doing right now is preparing for the inevitable shift. The strategy Blake’s using to generate deals on Instagram Blake is using his Instagram to not only post content, but to actually connect with potential clients.

Harry Dent On Why We’re Headed for the Biggest Deflation Crisis in Our Lifetimes
When a 90-year cycle meets a 40-year downturn, what we can expect is the greatest bubble in history, followed by an adjustment that’s literally decades in the making. Bubbles will always burst, and they will always end badly for anyone caught in the financial aftermath. We’re about to see a big adjustment in our economy unfold right in front of our eyes, but most people are not only blind to it - but also aren’t preparing for it at all. If you study history, you’ll always understand what’s about to happen next, and if you look at the wealthy, you’ll know what you need to be doing right now. What are bright red signs that we’re headed for a huge downturn? How can we prepare for what’s coming? Why should we stop expecting a soft landing? In this episode, I’m joined by world-renowned financial author and editor, Harry Dent. We talk about why the bubble we’re in right now is a cause for concern, and how to gear up for the huge deflationary period that’s coming. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The root of the crisis we’re headed for Instead of lowering interest rates and using stimulus to get the economy going, the US is printing money to offset the downturn. We’re printing as much money in 8 months as we usually print in 6 years, and that won’t come without some steep and painful consequences, culminating in a deflation crisis. Why certain institutions survive huge market downturns The big mutually owned insurance companies are the tried and true tested institutions that make it through downturns and come out stronger on the other side. They have the money, liquidity, and ability to buy the highest value assets, which positions them for the future. What the Gamestop situation tells us about the economy The Gamestop short sell situation we saw in January is another sign that we’re headed for a correction. When you’ve got too much liquidity in the stock market, and a war between retail investors and hedge funds, that’s a sure sign that we’re in a bubble, and bubbles always burst. Guest Bio- Harry S. Dent, Jr. is a best-selling author, one of the most outspoken financial editors in America, and Founder of HS Dent Publishing.

IBC Isn’t Just a Financial Process, It’s a State of Mind w/Russ Morgan and Joey Mure
Human beings have to choose between two paths - conformity or creating an amazing life for ourselves. If we want to build wealth and gain personal freedom, we have to take a journey of clarity and create a life outside of the financial lessons forced upon us. This is where the Infinite Banking Concept comes in. It is a process of creativity and unlimited opportunity that requires changing one thing - where our money goes first. Everytime we spend money outside of IBC, we’re losing the interest we could have gained or worse still, we’re paying someone else the interest. IBC is a powerful tool that we have never fully realized because we’ve always been on the borrower side of the equation. We can change that by taking control over our money, and becoming our own bank. How did the IBC come into existence, and how have people used it to invest in themselves and create wealth? What’s the one thing people get wrong about IBC? In this episode, I’m joined by financial coaches and Wealth Without Wall Street partners, Russ Morgan and Joey Mure. We talk about the IBC, and why it’s a critical piece to creating the life we want. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode How we can become the bank IBC allows us to participate in a system where we deposit money into an account that we control and own. We could borrow money against that and take over debts and use it to finance our assets. Most people are used to putting money away and not having access to it which shuts their mind off to the opportunities they could have if they controlled their own money. The truth about banks and IBC Banks have billions of dollars in the cash value of life insurance policies. Their vast real estate holdings are actually worth less than the cash value of their insurance policies. They are using financial tools and asset classes differently to what we’ve been taught. We can take over the function that someone else is benefitting from, so that it serves us and our goals. Why IBC is the first step in building wealth The concept and process of Infinite Banking dies if we think the policy will make us wealthy. What makes the difference is how we make use of that policy to fund our ventures and build our wealth. Don’t get lost in the policy, allow the policy to be the first step to unlocking your thinking and start seeing how you can find opportunities Guest Bio- Joey Mure and Russ Morgan are Financial Coaches and Partners at Wealth Without Wall Street.

25 Creative Ways to Raise Capital w/Daniel Wood
Finding suitable funding for deals is the biggest hurdle investors face. It’s the one thing that holds people back from pursuing real estate as a path to financial freedom. But money doesn’t have to be a hurdle if we know where to find it. There are so many creative avenues for financing deals, even if we’re just starting out. If we want to move our investing along faster, work smarter and more efficiently, we have to look beyond conventional funding sources. Instead of thinking that one strategy fits every single property, we can tailor unique strategies to each deal. From lease options to joint venture deals, the money we need to invest in properties is easier to access than we think. It all comes down to understanding how money actually works. My guest, Daniel Wood, has identified 25 sources of capital that investors can tap into. What are some of the unique ways we can get the money we need, and how do we structure deals that protect our profitability? What is the “Holy Grail of investing” and how can we implement it? In this episode, entrepreneur, investor, and co-founder of Momentum Property Education, Daniel Wood talks about his international investing operation and shares how new investors are raising money for deals. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode Why we should always consider the buy-and-hold option On average, properties double in value over 7-10 years if we’re buying in good areas. If we sell a property that’s good enough to keep, we give up equity and the cash flow we could have been making, as well as the chance to refinance and buy more property. The one funding source that gets new investors into financial trouble When we borrow money from friends and family, we have to be careful not to bring them in at a fixed interest rate. The compound effect is a powerful force, but when the interest rate we’re paying is higher than the income we’re making, the compound effect works against us. How to get funding through friends and family without compromising our profitThere isn’t just one way to finance deals through our friends and family. Instead of borrowing money from them, we can set up a joint venture with an option for us to buy them out. This way we aren’t exposed to the high-interest rates that cause many new investors to lose money and struggle.

He has over 10 years experience in business and he specializes in raising finance. He has co-founded 6 companies together with his wife Gisela.

How to Build Wealth, Legacy & Gain Territory in Real Estate w/Joe Bell
The most lucrative and profitable part of real estate takes place right in front of agents, but the opportunities often pass them by. While they are exposed to wealth distribution, a very small number of agents are able to experience true wealth and retire comfortably. To change this in a meaningful way, real estate agents need to start participating in the conversation around asset building and focus on building a legacy. Agents already bring so much value to the table. They can use their talents and strengths to acquire assets and create abundance. How can we become part of the wealth conversation in real estate? What is this current market telling us about what’s on the horizon? In this episode, I’m joined by entrepreneur, founder of Legacy Beyond Listings, and author of the book “Assets, Acquisitions, & Abundance”, Joe Bell. He talks about a key component real estate professionals are missing out on, and why this is the perfect time to prepare to take new territory. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The truth about this so-called great market On the surface, it looks like this great market is going to last. We need to remember that there are a lot of dynamics underneath the bubble that we’re in right now that many people can’t see. Instead of paying attention to the low-interest rates, we need to be paying attention to the job and income uncertainty and the fact that the pandemic economy is nowhere near over. How to be a part of the wealth distribution of real estate Real estate agents are perfectly positioned to take a slice of the wealth distribution of real estate. The most powerful thing we can do right now is to invest in an asset. Even if there’s a pullback in that asset in the immediate future, we’ll still have a foundation that can help us create wealth. If you maintain the asset, you will win out in the end. What we need to be doing in today’s market The economy and environment we’re in are painting the picture that making money in real estate will always be easy. The success that’s coming from the low-interest rates and busy market won’t last. What we need to do right now is prepare for the inevitable downturn, instead of spending what we’ve made. Guest Bio- Joe Bell is an expert at helping Real Estate Professionals build legacy, retirement, and wealth. He’s the founder of Legacy Beyond Listings, and author of the book “Assets, Acquisitions, & Abundance: A Guide To Building True Wealth & Legacy Through Real Estate”. Joe is passionate about serving real estate professionals, helping them achieve market domination and build true wealth in their lives through smart real estate investments.

Sean Whalen On Breaking Free From the Big Lie of Conformity
Very few people in our world are able to live their perfect life. Instead of living authentically, most people are miserable and over-burdened in their daily lives. It goes back to how we were programmed as kids. We’re taught to conform, not to take risks, and even when we’re encouraged to dream big, those same people also tell us to be realistic. The result? A world filled with angry people who feel like they are living a lie and generations of people who wish they had something different. We’re owned by systems we don’t even believe in, and until we break free from them, our lives will never truly be ours. How do we break out of the programming of fear, conformity and dishonesty? What is the root of the misery and depression that’s so high in our society? How do we create a life we are actually excited about? In this episode, I’m joined by best selling author, strategic business coach, life changing keynote speaker, and founder of Lions Not Sheep, Sean Whalen. He talks about the challenges he faced in his life, and how he overcame them by discovering and living his truth. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The truth behind the anger we’re seeing in our society We’re living in a bubble of anger. The culture we exist in, the society we live in, and the media we consume has forced us to conform and fit in. People end up angry because they are tired of being told what to, and can’t figure out what they really want for themselves. Why motivation is meaningless Motivation isn’t what drives us to make a change in our life. If our current reality is uncomfortable enough, stings us and bothers us enough we will get into action and change our lives. No amount of self-help books and motivational videos will take the place of a personal internal drive to make things better. The first step to creating the life you want The hardest question to answer for ourselves is what we want, but it’s also the most important. If we want to escape the bubble of conformity, we have to be honest with ourselves about what we want out of our lives outside of society’s expectations. Once we know the life that we want, we can boldly go after it and create it. Guest Bio- Sean Whalen is a best selling author, strategic business coach, social media and marketing genius, and life changing keynote speaker. He is the founder and CEO of Lions Not Sheep, the Lions Not Sheep Experience and the author of How To Make Shit Happen. When not speaking, coaching or working with his clients, Sean can be found riding horses with his daughter, racing off road trucks with his sons, shooting guns from his collection or traveling the world in search of the finest whiskey and cigar.

The 3 Foundational Pillars of Money School w/Stephen Nagy
The journey to financial freedom begins when we learn the truth about money, see what the wealthy do with it, and most importantly, implement it in our own lives. We’re currently living through some of the most economically volatile times in our nation’s history. Times of great uncertainty are also times of great opportunity. These are the times that turn people into millionaires and set them up for a future without financial stress. How we navigate this current economy can be the key to wealth, freedom, and legacy. We created The Money School Essentials event to help you gain the knowledge that will change your financial reality. What can you expect from our line-up of coaches? What are the 3 pillars of The Money School we teach our students? Should we take advantage of the stock market highs we’re seeing right now? Today’s episode of Real Estate Money School is special because it’s our 100th episode. I’m joined by one of my business partners Stephen Nagy to discuss our upcoming event and the most important strategies for taking control of your money. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode What the stock market tells us about the near future The stock market is very high right now, but that doesn’t mean we should be investing in it. With speculation so high, this is when we should be most cautious. There are so many alarm bells and signs that a drop in the market is coming. The best thing we can do right now is to prepare for a downturn. How to navigate the biggest challenges of real estate The two things stopping people from getting into real estate are the concept of property ownership and a perceived lack of funds. The truth is, you can get into real estate with little to no money, and you can make a substantial profit by just being the person who finds the deals. Why our money is useless when it’s not in motion In order for our money to work for us and for us to get the benefits of compound interest, it has to be in motion. If our money sits still, we can’t apply it to any wealth-building strategies or use it to create freedom for ourselves. Becoming your own bank is the most powerful way to put your money into action. Guest Bio- Stephen Nagy is a real estate and financial professional, business and investing consultant, speaker and trainer, partner at The Money School, and professional Realtor at Waterfront Properties.

Accumulation vs. Acceleration: Making Your Money Work For You w/Chris Mile
Conventional financial advice dictates that we should save everything, spend nothing, let compound interest work for us and hope that will give us a good life. The sad truth is, this is a big lie financial advisors get people to buy into. Instead of parking our money, making it work hard for us is the true path to financial independence and freedom. There’s a huge difference between accumulation and acceleration. When we put money in motion, we create a powerful tailwind that gives us control, and makes it possible for us to live our dream life. It makes it possible for us to get out of the rat race and work because we want to, not because we have to. How does the concept of compound interest do us a huge disservice as investors? Why should we be flexible when it comes to the strategies of financial freedom? In this episode, I’m joined by cash flow expert, author, and founder of Money Ripples, and the Anti-Financial Advisor, Chris Miles. He talks about his journey, retiring twice and how to use our money to create the life we want. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode Why accumulating money actually puts us at a disadvantage We’re often told to focus on accumulating money, and to enjoy the fruits of compound interest, but that isn’t the best way to gain financial freedom. If we park our money, it’s hard to get it to work for us. The wealthiest and most successful people in the world, and even banks keep their money in motion. The importance of being flexible as an investor Strategies and tactics are not absolutes, we have to be flexible about them. When it comes to what it takes to gain financial freedom, the strategies change with circumstances or time. What remains the same are the principles and fundamentals. As long as we stick to the fundamentals, there is room to shift strategies. Why we have to choose our advisors wisely Be careful of who you take financial advice from. We have to follow the advice of people who are living the life we want, the people who are living our perfect day. Many financial advisors don’t take the advice they give their clients, or follow the strategies they tell people to follow. Guest Bio- Chris Miles “the Anti-Financial Advisor” is a Cash Flow Expert, author of Beyond Rice & Beans and founder of Money Ripples. He teaches entrepreneurs and professionals how to get their money working for them TODAY!

The Priceless Value of Integrity In Real Estate Investing w/Martin Perdomo
The real estate investing game is all about relationships. We need to have relationships with our community, the sellers, our private lenders and bankers. Those relationships are impacted by one thing, credibility. People often focus only on the idea that a good deal is enough to persuade a private lender. The truth is, if we don’t have a reputation of competence and integrity, even the best deal would be dead in the water. Not only does credibility make us more attractive to lenders now, it will compound and create a solid track record in the future. How do we make sure we’re always upholding our integrity, even when deals go south? What are some of the ways investors destroy their reputations? In this episode, I’m joined by real estate entrepreneur, coach, speaker, and host of the podcast, Latinos in Real Estate Investing, Martin Perdomo. We talk about an important but often overlooked aspect of being an investor. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The power of multi-family investing In multi-family, you control the value of the asset based on how good of a business person you are. The better we are at managing the asset and increasing its value, the better the investment becomes, and the more credibility we have in our markets. Why credibility matters in this business Investors don’t just look at how good the deal is to determine if they want to get involved, they are also looking at us as people. Our credibility and reputation is important, because that determines whether we can not only give them a return on their investment, but a return of the money they invested with us in the first place. How to put our private lenders first in everything we do Things don’t always go well with our investments, and if we’re using other people’s money, our first priority should be making the investor whole again. It’s better for us to lose our own money than to lose the investors money, and destroy our reputation in the process. As an investor, you have to be committed to doing the right thing even when it hurts. Guest Bio- Martin Perdomo “The Elite Strategist” is a real estate entrepreneur and investor, coach, speaker, mentor and host of Latinos in Real estate Investing.

The Biggest Mistakes New Investors Make...and How to Avoid Them w/Brian Adamson
Success in real estate investing is all about following a formula, but a lot of the training out there only focuses on what to do when everything goes right. More often than not, we have to learn what not to do, and how to avoid the common pitfalls so many investors have had to experience the hard way. Some of the most successful investors have learned from the mistakes they made early on. From how to mitigate risk with contractors, how to structure our businesses to avoid being at the mercy of banks and the power of coaching, there are so many important aspects of being successful that are overlooked. My guest today is an investor who, like many of us, has learned the biggest lessons the hard way, and is now teaching others so they don’t fall into the same traps. What is the biggest Achilles heel for a real estate investor? How do we structure our investment businesses to protect ourselves from risk? In this episode, experienced investor and coach, Brain Adamson talks about his evolution as an investor. Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode The one thing that gets investors in trouble Contractors are absolutely the toughest part of running an investing business, and one of the most important skills we can gain early is streamlining this part of the business. We have to learn how to mitigate our risk with contractors, how to draw contracts to keep them honest, and quickly part ways with bad contractors. How to build asset protection into our operations One of the biggest mistakes new investors make is buying properties and operating in our own names, instead of protecting our assets by creating separate entities and LLCs. That way, if anything happens with the bank, we’re fortified from it. Why coaching and mentorship are so important People are the most valuable resource for any real estate investor. One of the most important relationships we will ever have is with our coaches or mentors. The wisdom of other people will help us navigate investing with fewer challenges, and streamline our operations. Guest Bio- Brian Adamson is an Experienced Real Estate Investor & Educator at BBR EDUCATION GROUP.
