When I was eight years old my parents bought me a book called Never Never Quit. At thirty four I still have it and flip through it to remind myself to suck it up and keep pushing forward.
I know in today’s age of instant gratification what I am about to tell is not what you want to hear. It is also what every successful person will tell you. From Gary Vaynerchuk to Warren Buffet to Bernie Marcus.
Every real estate “expert or guru” will tell you that you can start making money in less than 30 days if you buy their $5000 course. Well I live in the real world and I’m not trying to scam you out of your hard earned money.
It’s bullshit people! It took me 8 months to do my first deal. I must have submitted close to 300 offers before getting my first deal. I analyzed so many houses and maximum allowable offers my head was spinning. Hard fucking work guys that’s the key to this. You have to knock on doors, send out emails, fucking cold call, network with every successful agent in your area. Get your name out there to everyone in your area.
This was my first deal back in October 2008. The housing market was a train wreck in south Florida and nobody knew what was going to happen. Like I said in my first article you have to know your area and bet on sure things.
If you take one thing away from this page I hope it’s that you have to get after it each and every day! Wake up with a purpose and small attainable goals that you can accomplish. Too many people think that they deserve to be successful. Nothing could be further from the truth you make your own success in this life.
