What you’ll learn about in this episode:

    • Why buying and flipping houses alone isn’t enough to generate success in real estate investments. You must develop a few essential business skills along the way
    • Why visionaries are awesome, but sometimes it takes real management skills to get the job done
    • The importance of identifying a need in the market and being able to meet that need at the same time
    • How when leaders or visionaries develop the necessary skills to become great managers, magic happens
    • Why some people simply need to learn a new skill set to take their moderately successful real estate businesses to new levels of success
    • Why success all comes back to creating the plan and setting goals to achieve that vision in the end
    • Why developing a process to use over and over again to achieve success is the real secret to changing your reality in real estate investing and any other business venture
    • The reasons it’s important to avoid thinking of only what needs to be done today and focus instead on what the end goal is and how you’re going to accomplish that goal
    • Why passion is necessary for success in any business venture
    • The importance of creating a game plan everyone can get on board with and then making sure that everyone is on the same page and doing their part
    • Reasons you must document, document, document (and then follow the document)
    • How you can’t make it big in real estate without surrounding yourself with the right people – a village of people on your team – each one responsible for their own little corner
    • Why organization is the real secret to success
