Where I’ve been the last 8 months
The last blog post I did was in October of 2020 and WOW have things changed. The word of the day is, opportunity…
I appeared on the BiggerPockets Rookie podcast, 7 Figure Flipping, Multifamily Live, Construct Your Life, and The Lessons in Real Estate Show.
After closing on a duplex at the end of last year (no vacancy and $700 a month of PURE cash flow), I attended Flip Hacking Live 2020. It was a virtual event and “target of opportunity” as we say in the military. I had no real intention of going until it turned virtual.
I knew the owner putting on Flip Hacking Live was a high-character person and service member. I already felt like I knew him, I liked him, and I trusted him.
That opened the door for the opportunity to join his mastermind and that is exactly what I did.
This opportunity changed my life!!!
First, I shifted my focus to wholesaling. I was obsessed with learning marketing and sales. I spent late nights and early mornings studying the courses provided in the mastermind then I TOOK ACTION.
The reason: I determined two skills are invaluable regardless of the real estate investing niche. If you can do these two things, you can dominate any real estate investing space.
- Raising private capital
- Finding discounted, off-market properties
I started my own company, Will To Win Investments, LLC and after months of marketing, I gained significant traction. Go to my Instagram stories to ask and get answers on the exact marketing strategy I employed.
Bottom line; tens of thousands of dollars started rolling in. It worked.
The Next Opportunity
This led to the biggest OPPORTUNITY of my life. I partnered with one of the most well-known real estate investors and took over ownership of his company. It’s a fully functioning marketing machine doing over $100k a month in gross profit.
I went from start-up, a two-man show with a few virtual assistants – to having a team with salary employees that are counting on me. It’s the exact situation I want to be in. I do my best work when others are counting on me. I’ll be honest, money is great, and I want a lot of It but I want to see the people on my team succeed more than anything. My philosophy in the service has always been; if you take care of the people, the people will take care of the mission.
Why did he choose me? I have no idea. Maybe he will tell us in a big announcement in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
Real Estate is an exciting investment and business vehicle for me. I continue to find HUGE value in this asset class. For me, it’s about the type of people it attracts. My goal is to improve people’s lives through real estate. If I can help you in any way, reach out to me!
