A: Millionaire Coaching™ refers to my coaching you in learning the skills you will need on your way to becoming a Millionaire. What is the best way to learn to do something? Find someone who already knows what it is you want to do, and have them teach you how to do it. Thereby cutting years off of your learning curve, and avoiding numerous mistakes often made when attempting something new.
A coach is someone who is highly skilled in a given area, and who teaches, trains, or instructs another in acquiring that skill and performing at peak levels. Even the best have coaches: Michael Jordan had a coach, Celine Dion has a voice coach, top actors and actresses have acting coaches. The list goes on and on. If you want to excel at something, find someone who has been where you want to go, and knows how to get you there.
If you want to learn how to get started fast, and succeed as a real estate investor – then I want to be your coach. Working with me will literally cut years off of your learning time, and get you making serious money fast in real estate. I not only have a vast background in many areas of real estate investing, but I am also highly trained as a success and peak performance coach. I know what stops most people from succeeding and how to turn it around.
A: Sure, absolutely you can. But if things were that easy, everyone who attempted to get into this business would succeed. But that is simply not the case. It’s a hard pill for many people to swallow, but the truth of the matter is that those who get a program and attempt to get involved in this business don’t fail because of the program . . . they fail because of themselves. They either don’t have enough faith in the program – or themselves. Or they don’t put forth enough of the right kind of effort and give up too soon. Or a combination of all of the above.
There are those strong-willed independent types who will debate with you all day long how you don’t need a coach and that you don’t even need to buy anyone’s real estate program. They contend that you can learn it all on your own and can just pick up books at the library. These people are quite proud of their ingenuity in saving themselves money and doing it all themselves.
While these people can make money in real estate, it often takes them longer, and they are usually limited in their earning potential. Take this type of investor, and compare them with one of my clients in a coaching program – and my client will make more money, faster.
A: That’s a fair question. But who says I stopped doing my real estate investing? I am still very active as a real estate investor, and helping others to achieve success is hardly a waste of time.
The main reason that anyone gets involved in real estate investing – is the money. Honestly! If it wasn’t for the money, why do it? Sure, it can be a fun business and a great way to make a living, but show me someone who is willing to do it for free.
While the monetary rewards are very nice, there comes a point where you no longer do certain things purely for the money; and you start doing things because you love to do them. I coach because I love being able to change people’s lives for the better. I remember how incredible it was when I first got into this business and began to realize that it was for real and that the average person really could start with nothing and become wealthy beyond their imagination. Sure, I was a little skeptical at first, but when I realized first-hand that the things I had heard were true, WOW! A whole new life opened up for me.
Now, I get to relive that feeling on a regular basis through my clients. That’s why I coach. Sure, I could use the time I spend with my clients and do a few more deals and make even more money – but I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as I do helping others succeed.
A: As much, or as little as you are able. Everyone has life obligations that they need to attend to. You certainly can’t just quit your job before you are going in real estate, and I don’t advocate that. We will go at a pace that fits your schedule in the beginning. Of course, the goal is to get you to the point where you no longer need that job and are going strong with your real estate. The sooner the better.
It’s better to be working towards becoming a real estate investor a little at a time and at a slower pace in the beginning – than to not be working towards that at all.
A: I have yet to find an area where this “can’t” be done. There is money in any area, but many people lack the knowledge and experience to know how to find it. That is where you have a definite advantage with me . . . I have worked in many areas of investing so I know of lots of ways to make money in any area, and in any economy. In fact, what many people don’t realize, is that when you hear reports in the media about the real estate market being “bad”; for you and I the investor it’s “good.” More fortunes have been made in real estate in all the so-called “bad” times, than in all the good times combined.
Remember the section about my background? I started out in a fairly small town with a population of about 35,000 out in the country. The nearest big city was 120 miles away. Now if I can get started like that where I was, how well do you think you could do in a major metropolitan area?
A: A common misconception people have about coaching, is that they think if a coach doesn’t know their local market, how can they possibly coach them. Truth is, that’s typical beginner’s thinking. What people have heard about investing comes from the typical real estate market, and that you need to buy, sell, and invest according to market conditions. A true, experienced professional investor doesn’t rely on market conditions, they create them.
We as professional investors, don’t just make money when the real estate market is good, if we did, then we wouldn’t be making any money for long periods of time when it’s down. We buy properties at such great discounts, that even in a slow market, we can sell for lower prices, or better terms and conditons to move the deal, and make our money. Statistically, there are more Millionaires made in the United States during the so-called “bad times”, than in all the good times combined.
Real investing has little to do with knowing your local market, and everything to do with knowing how to make money on a deal. I buy properties in nice areas, and I buy properties in bad areas, and I make money with both. I have literally dropped into new towns, found deals, and made tens of thousands of dollars, and never knew a thing about the local market. I have coached numerous people in different parts of the country, and never once did we research to know the local market, and they earn in the six-figure range. Markets don’t make you money – good deals do.
Do you want to spend time studying statistics and market conditions, or do you want to make money?
A: Yes! Bad credit never stopped anyone unless they let it stop them. It’s all about being informed. Is it easier to invest in real estate with good credit? Yes! It’s also easier to start out with a million dollars in the bank, but if you don’t have that then you just start from where you are. It is not difficult to make lots of money fast in real estate – even with bad credit.
A: Sure! I did, and so have lots of others. It’s a misconception that you need money to get started investing in real estate. Hey! Haven’t you ever heard of “no money down?” LOL! Even if you had money to invest, I would advise you not to even use it. The people who make the “real” money in this business employ the principles of “OPM” (Other People’s Money). Anyone can become a “Real Estate Investor.” You just have to go out and buy a property. But we want to be SMART Real Estate Investors . . . and we don’t need money to do that.
A: LOL, Yes! I get this sometimes. I’ll be the first to admit, I am very expensive. But what’s my time worth? I have other businesses that make me more than I get for coaching. I coach because I love working with people and helping to change their lives. I still remember what it was like when I first started and the struggles I had to deal with. I get pumped when I see my clients reaction to succeeding in their first few deals and realizing that they are going to become wealthy.
I don’t just give you some glorified pep talk and send you on your way – I am there with you making sure you succeed (and in some programs, I come to you and teach you how to work this business in your area). I not only teach you real estate investing, I teach you the principles, secrets, and strategies of success. I also work with you to break through any fears and limitations you may have towards succeeding. What’s most valuable, is that I give you the tools to not only make money and achieve financial success . . . but how to be successful in all areas of your life and how to maintain it long-term.
As if all of that isn’t enough, in some of my programs I also give you a full money-back guarantee. How’s that for putting my money where my mouth is? If you follow all that I tell you, and make the effort, and you don’t succeed, you get your money back.
A: I recently put up a new Testimonials page with a profile of one of my early students. I will be putting together more Testimonials, but one thing you need to keep in mind, is that one thing I teach my clients is how to be anonymous. Being anonymous can have it’s advantages. When you start making a lot of money, and own a lot of property, you can become a target for those who are too lazy to work and make their own money, and would rather just sue you for some frivolous lawsuit to get rich. So many of my coaching clients are not too eager to have their success and deals and money they’ve earned made public – at least not till they feel comfortable protecting it. Also, many are too busy now to have the time to put together all the pics and details of their deals, but I am working on getting more to you.
A: To be quite honest, “You don’t!” You only have my word on it and the things I have included in this website to go on. That is why I am guaranteeing you your money back if I don’t help you reach your goals. (1)
True, there are a lot of so-called coaches out there who are complete rip-off’s. I am very much for real. I am not some salesperson who sits in an office talking with you about what they have read about real estate investing. I have been out there and done it (and still do). I have been a real estate investor since 1990 and have made a fortune from it. Granted I don’t do as much investing as I used too, but when I say that you have to realize I used to work this business 14 hours a day. So cutting back for me is still a hectic workday. lol!
In the background section of this website, it tells about me and how I got started. I have also included in this section (as proof) links to copies of actual checks, and deals that I have done to show you that I actually do what I say. Check out the Testimonials page. If you want to verify that I am a living, breathing individual please feel free to just pick up the phone and call me. As long as I’m available, I will answer my phone.
