I’ve got another great interview lined up today. Gabriel Garcia, a prodigious guy from my mastermind group, knows the secret to success. We all know hard work pays off – duh – but what about working hard to maintain a positive attitude? Have you ever considered how much your own happiness influences your success? We may have started our own businesses so we could take charge of our lives, but Gabriel’s motivation may influence the way you look at your career and your success for the better.

From a technique standpoint, Gabriel breaks down his marketing skills – sharing a few mistakes he’s learned from on the way (and I ask him why he still doesn’t use apps in his business). But Gabriel also talks about how he revamped his goals to better match his business-oriented lifestyle that now includes faith and family. He’s a musical genius, but he swapped a creative career for real estate for the positive changes it made for himself and his family. His creative outlook brought an excellent spin to his business plan, and he can really help you transform the way you see your next venture.

Topics:

4:34 Gabriel’s expertise with Wholesale/Fix-and-Flip combos and trends

12:50 Gabriel’s transition from a musical career to real estate extraordinaire

19:28 I ask Gabriel to walk me through the marketing mistakes he learned the most from

22:00 DMM, SEO, and more successful marketing plans Gabriel has perfected

33:06 Gabriel Garcia’s favorite motivational business quotes

34:16 What we love about The 4 Disciplines of Execution

37:33 I tell Gabriel the perks of using my favorite mobile apps

39:35 Why are morning rituals so important to success?

40:12 Gabriel breaks down his current routine

44:00 Uncovering the best time to get a mentor

49:32 What “mastery” means to Gabriel and his business

50:03 How to get in touch with Gabriel

52:20 What’s really fulfilling about this business

Quotes/Tweets

“My expertise is in building a real estate business with a solid team that we can just count on to get stuff done.” Gabriel

“The biggest mistake for me was not building a marketing foundation from the beginning.” Gabriel

Are you looking for a lending opportunity but don’t know where to start? I’ve invited Mike Zlotnik on today to be the next guest in my Real Estate Investing Profit Masterpiece series. Mike is a private lender who has done over $1 million dollars of business with me personally. In fact, he’s from my mastermind group, so I have just as much to learn from him as you do. Since he’s been in the business of lending for over six years, he knows the key differences between a good deal and a bad deal, and he’s here to talk about what you can do to insure that your next real estate venture is a good deal.

“Our goal is not to fund the deal. Our goal is to make the investor successful.”

Mike’s experience with residential properties is focused on the investor, which is YOU! And he’s on air today prepared to break down the equations and percentages that create the perfect lending deal for your next property investment. Mike’s insight into fix-and-flip projects, commercial and rental real estate, and his experience with real estate moguls across the globe will definitely prepare you for your next encounter with a private lender.

Topics:

  • Inside info on how you can get your deal funded
  • Knowing the difference between a good deal and a bad deal
  • Mike’s own examples of good deals vs. bad deals
  • What to do before you submit your application for funding
  • A few ways you can improve your odds of getting the deal you want
  • Knowing what to expect from the appraisal of your property.
  • Mike’s personal definition of a “long-term hold”

“When you’re doing a deal, you need understand all the potential outcomes – the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

On today’s show I talk with Erik Stark. I think this is one of my favorite interviews because Erik talks about so many things I can relate to. Erik is a full-time American entrepreneur who has chiseled an exceptional life through real estate investing.

He has bought and sold over 400 properties and raised millions of dollars in private money. He has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in personal development and real estate. He has worked with people like Preston Ely, Sean Stevenson, and Kenny Rushing.

A person whose bible is torn apart usually lives a life that is not.  - Erik

Erik’s passion comes alive with his family. He has been married to his wife who he calls his love goddess for 12 years. His focus is on improving his marriage through biblical based principles. He surrounds himself with people who are supportive of god, and he runs a ministry. At 33, he has had incredible success. Erik’s main business focus is in wholesale properties and lead generation. There is a lot to learn in today’s show.

Topics:

  • Why focusing on lead generation allows him to find the best deals and choose whether to keep or sale
  • Having a knack for sales, real estate was the natural progression of Erik’s journey
  • His core influences were his family and his business partner
  • His aha moment came when he was in the hospital when his son was born
  • Biggest mistake was not holding on to more properties, instead of flipping them
  • Marketing is his Profit Masters Investment Strategy, real estate is the opportunity
  • Driving a lead with “in the streets” networking and advertising strategy even Chamber of Commerce or Rotary Club
  • Advice for running a successful business is stay focused and follow strategy
  • Find a mentor who has beliefs that match yours and let them guide you down the path

“Don’t bounce from opportunity to opportunity... focus on the goal go after it hard and don’t walk away from it” Erik

Today I’ve brought the Lease Option Ninjas on the show to give a little insight into what it’s like to flip contracts, not houses.  Jay and Annie Adkins are working the real estate scene from their small town right outside of Columbus, Ohio. They got their first taste of real estate when they started leasing their family home.

“Commit with a renewed conviction to do your best work, be the best person you can and serve others by helping better their lives.”

They’ve been in the game together a long time, and they’ve had their fair share of experiences – some good, some bad, but always worth learning from. They talk about their biggest inspirations and their biggest mistakes, and there’s so many little lessons in today’s interview that you can’t miss it.

TOPICS:

  • How Jay and Annie are crushing it in real estate today
  • What inspired their start in the real estate business
  • The biggest struggles Jay and Annie have faced in the business and in life
  • Learn from a few of Jay and Annie’s mistakes so you can avoid them
  • Finding new perspectives and new ways to pursue your market
  • The different tools Jay, Annie, and I use to stay organized

“We feel blessed that we have the opportunity to help [others] accomplish their goals and dreams.”

Patrick was a total superstar for me, and when we met I was inspired by his confidence and his sense of purpose in his life and in his career. He takes what he learned on the rugby field and applies it to his businesses, so tune in now to take advantage of his great insight!

Randy Lawrence is the owner of a seven figure real estate rehabbing company. Randy is known as “The Real Estate Preacher.” This former pastor has met many of his goals and “visions” through real estate. Today he will share his lessons from the business and how positive thinking helps move investors toward their goals.

Randy began with a 7 unit apartment complex in Florida. He took that experience and built upon it to create the business he has today. Randy began his career as a money manager, but soon found a calling in real estate. Today, Randy has over 20 deals in the works and has a 5 person team to manage deals with him. He says success is not the guy on the phone all day, but the guy in Tahiti while the business runs back home. The lessons Randy has taken away from his experience are:

  • Move forward after a mistake. Keep moving even if there was a mistake, and don’t quit,
  • Be Strategic. Know where you want to go and have a plan to get there.
  • Develop a system. Design a method to generate deals to keep the opportunities coming.
  • Protect your thoughts. Positive thinking is your most powerful tool.
  • Be willing to accept help from others.
  • Find mentors to teach you how to do what you want to do.

Randy can be found online at therealestatepreacher.org. Please check out his podcast The Real Estate Preacher and join the page on Facebook.

Quotes from today’s episode:

 

 

"What do you want to do, find the person who is doing what you want and learn from them. Because they're already doing what you want to do." --Randy Lawrence

 

 

"We are more resourceful than what we give ourselves credit for, we have deeper strength than what we know is possible, and we can actually do more than what we may believe is possible for us to do." --Randy Lawrence

Hey, have you heard of Brock Collins? If you haven’t then you should check out his podcast Freedom Real Estate Investing. Brock operates just outside of Chicago and focuses on the why real estate is a great career choice. Today Brock shares his desire to keep his freedom while running his business and how he does that.

"If you are comfortable today, you're not taking enough action steps. You've got to get out until you're uncomfortable."

Brock grew up in a blue collar home, but he always wanted to see what the other side of the fence (white collar) was like. After making 24 grand a year while working 50 to 60 hours a week, Brock decided it was time to take his knowledge of real estate to the next level. He reached out to a mentor and began work on making deals. Brock learned traditional methods of property investment, but really made a breakthrough when he learned other methods of investment that better fit his personal goals.

Today’s Conversation Points:

  • Why buying with emotion will always cost more
  • E.D.C. -- Eliminate, Delegate, Create
  • Treat investing like a business
  • Lessons from influential books
  • Brock’s 3 Fs

"I want to really live life by design and so that’s how I do my business today."

In the real estate business finding that highly-motivated seller is a critical to success.  My guest today is Chris Richter, co-founder of a company called Audantic which handles statistics and analytics for real estate and investors. Chris takes tons of data and breaks it down to give his clients the best results for finding those highly-motivated sellers and scaling their business.  Chris has been involved in wholesaling in the greater Seattle metro area and has developed an outstanding data mining business.  

"Marketing without analytics is like going golfing without knowing where the hole is."

Chris went to school for Astrophysics and was an engineer for almost five years. He tells us that he worked ridiculous hours and had friends in real estate that seemed happier than him.  After some missteps, he was on his way and he shares a ton of great insight on this episode.

"I think the industry is changing like every other industry and is leading more into data and modelling."

 

Today’s Topics Include:

  • Chris’s marketing through direct mail
  • Using analytics to your benefit
  • How the real estate market is moving more into data
  • Scaling through the use of analytics
  • Chris’s approach to locating motivated sellers

 

If you’d like to find out what’s going on in your area and how Chris can help you, send him an email at info@audantic.com

 

If you want something, go get it.  It’ll be hard. Don’t complain about it. Just go.

Our guest for today is Joe Lieber. He’s a Low Income Inner-City Housing Specialist and a Buy-and-Hold Real Estate Investor from Cleveland, Ohio. Like so many of our other guests, we met through The Collective Genius mastermind. We’re going to be exploring his venture for financial freedom, and how it has led him to being an extremely profitable realtor in the ghetto.

Joe’s main deal is that he wants to work for assets; not for money (like Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, who also happen to be his role models, especially the latter.) He’s currently in the 150 house range, so obviously he’s doing something right! Today is about how he gets to do everything he wants, and make money while he’s at it.

“There’s only two ways to get someone to invest into a property: a large down payment, or blood, sweat and tears.” – Joe

Today’s Topics Include:

  • Why Joe is huge on passive income
  • His best real estate strategies
  • The quick and easy way to breaking into the real estate business
  • How coaches pay for themselves and why you should have already gotten one
  • Joe’s experience with lease-to-own rentals

“I could have taken the elevator, but instead I took the stairs.” – Joe

Today we’re joined by Daren Blomquist, data expert and Vice President of RealtyTrac. He graduated from Trinity International University with a degree in English Communications, in the hopes of becoming a newspaper journalist. However, in 2001, he started with RealtyTrac thinking it would be a small, internal publication. But to his surprise, he ended up sticking with it ever since.

He’s directly responsible for the creation of the company’s U.S. foreclosure market and sales reports, and they’re sided by hundreds of media outlets nationwide, like: CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox Business, and USA Today. He’s been quoted in hundreds of national publications like: The New York Times, Bloomberg, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal. They also work closely with numerous government agencies at the national state and local level, and he’s a highly sought after speaker at industry events.

“Whenever I let go of control, I get more of it. It’s almost like holding on to a cactus: the tighter you hold on, the more it hurts you.”

Today is really all about data analysis, how and why RealtyTrac came to be, and some ups and downs Daren faced while the company was growing. We talk about the importance of handing off tasks as today’s Profit Master’s Investment Strategy, and the positive results that come from passing off responsibility and control. Daren tells us this is his best piece of advice to running a successful real estate data team.

We discuss a great strategy that we have observed in successful investors, which entails buying the foreclosure rights on houses before they can be repossessed, and are able to do this by using the information provided by RealtyTrac.

“People give up on something quicker than they should instead of giving it time to succeed.”

Lastly, we get a best-kept secret about the RealtyTrac website, and how you can use it to dominate the foreclosure market. You’re basically creating lists of people you want to market to, so this is just as useful for marketing as it is for investing and real estate. So go ahead, create a free account, and check out the millions of records we have on file, today!

Daren loves hearing from his audience. So, if you’re an investor, e-mail Daren at daren@realtytrac.com, and tell him your stories and what you’ve been seeing in your market.

“Even when I don’t feel like I’m making as much of a difference as I’d like to, just continuing to believe in it and continuing to do what I know—is what I should be doing.
