No one really knows exactly what the year will bring to the real estate industry. But here’s what you can do to put your best foot forward and prepare for real estate investing in 2022. Since the first quarter of the year is coming to an end, it’s likely that you already have the rest of the year on your mind. And given the circumstances, I won’t be surprised if you have mixed feelings about what the future will bring. We can never be absolutely sure of what’s going to happen, right? But we can definitely prepare ourselves to make the rest of...

No real estate portfolio will be completely unaffected by a major downturn. But you can make it as recession resistant as possible. Whenever there’s a crisis, you don’t have to wait long to hear all kinds of predictions about a supposedly impending recession. You’ll find people saying that it might be triggered by the bubble burst, the terrorist threat, or the pandemic.  Now, I’m not saying that there’s going to be a recession in the near future (or not). After all, no one knows what’s going to happen tomorrow with 100% certainty.   And there isn’t one single market, right? There are all...

With the right mindset, anyone can succeed in real estate. Not only that, but people can quit working for someone else and accumulate wealth beyond what they thought was possible. We have many Associates who adopted the winning mindset and pivoted their lives and careers for the better. What’s amazing is that some of them have been in real estate for years, but they only managed to find success with us. That said, there’s a common thread with most of the people who approach us for help, whether they have real estate experience or not. Most of them spend thousands of dollars on...

Although seemingly straightforward, the real estate industry is full of pitfalls that may prevent many from investing. There are challenges to growing your real estate business, but you can overcome them. Monica just finished our QLS self-guided course, in which a lot of what she heard was foreign to her. That’s not surprising since real estate was new to her. But, as she moved through the program, Monica began to recognize the key ideas and language. And it wasn’t long before she could completely follow everything we were saying. Now, why am I telling you this? First, real estate is not easy, particularly if...

The more authority you have as a real estate investor, the faster you can make deals and earn serious cash. Roger Campbell is a Starter Associate in Atlanta, Georgia. When he came to us, he didn’t know what to expect. But after he went through one of our Development Day Masterminds, he was so inspired and knew that his life would change completely with real estate investing. For Roger, it wasn't about making the first million – but changing his mindset. So Roger attended our event to learn how to tweak things and become better at what he does. However, he picked up so...

Real estate is your chance to say goodbye to the 9-to-5. But before you can make money fast in real estate, you need to understand how to do it right. Brian O’Neill is our High 6 Associate in Chicago and also the strategy expert for Smart Real Estate Coach. And Brian’s rise to the top is truly unique. He spent 25 years in the corporate world with zero real estate experience. And during that time, Brian worked 17 years for the same company and spent a lot of time away from his family. By his account, he missed seeing his son grow up...

Young, inexperienced, and broke? This doesn’t mean you can’t start a career in real estate. Recently, I had a special guest on my podcast - my son-in-law Zach Beach, who happens to work with us. And I’d like to tell you his success story. You see, Zach comes from a great family and he took the traditional route of going to college. In fact, he only went to college after his high school teacher said that he couldn’t do it. As it turned out, Zach knew that the corporate world wasn’t for him when he graduated college. So, he started working as a bartender. At...
