Becoming a Successful RE Investor is NOT Easy


Becoming a Successful RE Investor is NOT Easy

(If anyone says, “It’s easy!” – run!)

I don’t think anything worth doing is easy.

I think it gets easier if you manage your expectations and build your business steady as you go. Don’t get overloaded and don’t get too far out on limbs you don’t understand.

Go into deals you are prepared to handle.

It’s common sense really. But common sense can be elusive when you’re high strung or under the gun for money. I’ve been in both places before.

I move much slower now at a calculated pace now, with pros I can depend on around me…and I’m older now! I don’t know if I slowed down because I got older or because I got smarter. A little of both I suppose.

All this being said, I’m on slightly behind pace to buy 100 houses in 2015.

Some might think that’s a fast pace, but, I finally learned how to set things up so I don’t have to do everything. In fact, as long as I have the money lined up and in waiting, I don’t have to do anything. The business model I developed, the infrastructure, and people in places handle everything!

It took me a long time to figure all this out and have the private money and confidence under my belt…from years of doing good business.

It shouldn’t have taken me so long, but for whatever reason, it did. I’m not complaining; I’m just sayin’.

Sometimes our light bulbs go off when we’re ready to understand things and move to the next level. Until then, we just keep trying to absorb good and useful information, and keep moving.

Then one day – BLINK – the light bulb comes on!

“So that’s what they’ve been trying to tell me all these years!”

…and then from your new prospective you can see what you couldn’t see before. It’s crazy how it happens.
