Whitney Nicely went from no investments (or strategies) to 19 houses, 19 apartment units and 7 chunks of land in less than three years all bringing monthly money to her bank account on autopilot. She has traveled the United States speaking on stages, teaching her simple strategies, and meeting with other successful real estate investors- and still buying houses the way she teaches others. On this episode, she shares how starting something like real estate can seem scary from the outset. When you focus on your seller and buyers, that takes the pressure off you. Your goal in this life should be to help as many people as you can, keep your efforts small, personal, and smooth.

Rank #2: Lisa Phillips On Affordable Real Estate

Podcast cover
Read more

Lisa Phillips is the founder of Affordable Real Estate Investments and #1 bestselling author of Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners: Buy Low, Rent High. After her second layoff and a foreclosure in the bloated Las Vegas, NV real estate market, Lisa found herself alone and halfway across the US from her friends and family with no job. She was left with a 35k condo and only enough money to renovate the place doing the work herself to stretch her unemployment check. It not only gave her a solid foundation of repair maintenance and costs, but also a taste of how owning real estate could be affordable and profitable. After purchasing four more rental properties around or under 30K in OH, MD, and VA, Lisa is now focused on doing one thing she loves to do: showing EVERYONE how they too can affordably start investing in real estate for high profits and cash flow.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Lisa Phillips?

Lisa Phillips was born in an impoverished situation but has a strength and conviction that the world can be a better place. Everyone has a need for a house, but there is another process that goes into turning a house into a home, which is one of Lisa’s innate talents.

Lisa was born and raised in Las Vegas and saw the real estate market in the area and thought it was going to the moon. After getting laid off, Lisa had to move to Ohio to find a job that paid a similar salary to what she was making before, which she needed to covering the mortgage on the condo she had purchased. One of the main lessons she learned from that experience was to make sure the average rent of the neighbourhood can cover the payment in case you need it to.

While living in Ohio, she was laid off again after purchasing a small condo and realized that low priced and affordable homes are a great protection in times of recession and uncertainty.

  • Saving Money For Real Estate

When you’re single you choose what level of savings you want to achieve. Once you have a family it becomes much harder to save the same level because your dream of frugality may not be theirs.

  • Courage

Courage comes from being true to who you are. It comes from acknowledging your soul and not letting other people tell you how you live your life. Listen to your own internal intuition and guidance, don’t ignore it.

Lisa noticed that every time she didn’t listen to the voice in her heard, she tended to regret it so she had some practice with it. It can be very hard when everyone around you is going in one direction and your intuition is telling you to go the other way but Lisa found that the more she listened to her soul the more she came out ahead.

Optimism and confidence in yourself to figure out something for yourself or ask for help are two other tools that will help you succeed. You can weather through the storm.

Lessons learned can help you when you get burned. By having such a negative experience with her first real estate purchase, Lisa learned a lot about the economics and math of the whole process and that helped her with her future deals.

  • Why do you help people?

Lisa felt that even though she doesn’t have a massive portfolio of properties she still had some knowledge that other people could really benefit from.

Inspiring people and creating a culture of responsibility are big reasons why Lisa continues to talk to people about her real estate methods. She knows that it doesn’t take a huge number of properties to change the way you think about life and allow you to do things that you always wanted to.

If even 10% of the people in the world had the financial ability to spend most of their time doing the things that they really love, the world would be a different place. Sometimes you just need to see someone else do it before you realize you can do it yourself.

Reference: Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners: Buy Low, Rent High, Lisa Phillips

  • Lisa’s Takeaway

First get really clear about what you want and why you’re doing it. Then talk to yourself in your head about what that vision will do and what it’s going to be. Don’t tell anyone else until why you believe it. Do the research so you can minimize the risks and then choose the path to get you there. Start acting. Have your daydream sessions and then make them fun. Find a coach and talk to them about what you want to achieve, invest in people that can help you.

Rank #4: The Science of Getting Rich

Podcast cover
Read more

David Neagle is the bestselling author of The Millions Within: How to Manifest Exactly What You Want and Have an EPIC Life!. He is one of the architects of the coaching and personal growth industry, and has spoken or worked alongside Bob Proctor, Marianne Morrisey, and Tony Robbins.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is David Neagle?

David was a person that was truly confused about the meaning of life. He came from a place of dysfunction in childhood and sought the answers to his questions from his teachers, parents, and mentors but no one could answer him. He ended up venturing on his own and turned into a curious kid on the wrong path in life.

He could really relate to the idea of “I don’t like what I am doing, but I don’t know what to go do.” At some point, David made the decision to follow the desires of his own heart which put him into a different emotional state, and his results soon changed as well. He wanted to set up his life so that he could do what he loved, with the people he loved.

  • Why do we feel like we need permission?

We are raised to believe that we need permission in order to advance in life. Permission is subconsciously linked to security which is something that is vital to human beings. The proper role of a parent is to turn over the power to make decisions to their children as they grow over time but many dysfunctional families end up with children taking care of the parents instead.

We live in a world of conflicting ideas and information, without a set of core values to guide us through life we begin to look for others to guide us and tell us what we need to do.

  • Questions About Suffering

Are we meant to suffer? David had a near death experience when he was younger that completely changed his perspective on life and brought a sense of urgency to his life.

David was working six days a week and couldn’t earn more than $20,000 a year and felt stuck. He was emotionally and physically exhausted while on the job one day that he had a complete breakdown and asked for direction. He received the answer “change your attitude” and decided to act like he loved what he did, do every job to the best of his ability, and treat everyone with respect from then on. Within 30 days he went from $20,000 a year to $62,000 and realized he was on to something big.

Your attitude determines your altitude.

  • The Science of Getting Rich

For years the book The Science of Getting Rich had been around David but he always thought it was a book about economics, that was until many people told him he had to read it. After reading The Science of Getting Rich in a single afternoon, he realized that it contained the answers he was always looking for.

Once he got clarity, David was able to make positive changes to his life much faster. Lack of clarity is the primary obstacle in people’s lives.

There is so much conflicting information in the world and if the information you discover conflicts with the principles you were raised with, it creates an internal battle. Until that battle is resolved, it’s impossible to get clear on your life.

  • Where did the courage to teach others come from?

David was waking up in the middle of the night for six months. Every night he awoke with the thought that if he wanted to live his dream, he had to leave, but he didn’t understand what it was that he had to leave. He called his mentor Bob Proctor who told David to just quit. He learned that the decision always comes first.

You always get what you need when you need it. You will not replay a pattern in your life that you haven’t experienced before.

To grow you have to acknowledge the desire in your heart. The conflict that comes in for a lot of people is they believe that’s irresponsible. There is a lot of uncertainty in people’s mind about how resilient they are.

When you connect the result to the action and the thought, everything in your life changes. True wealth is the awareness to manifest whatever you need in life.

Reference: The Millions Within: How to Manifest Exactly What You Want and Have an EPIC Life!, David Neagle

  • David’s Takeaway

The first thing is to change the concept of who you think you are. When you hear the voice that tells you about all the things you did wrong in the past, it shapes your concept that you are flawed. Making mistakes is not a flaw, it’s how we learn. Embrace the idea of making mistakes and growing rapidly. Step into your purpose. Make a solid decision to take an action on something which creates momentum and opens the door to the next decision. Opportunity often shows up as misfortune or temporary defeat, when you make the decision to focus on what you want your awareness will expand and then it becomes a process of saying yes to the things that will move you forward.

Rank #5: Making An Impact With Frank McKinney

Podcast cover
Read more

Frank McKinney is a real estate artist and international bestselling author of Make It BIG!: 49 Secrets for Building a Life of Extreme Success, Burst This!: Frank McKinney's Bubble Proof Real Estate Strategies, and Frank McKinney's Maverick Approach to Real Estate Success: How You can Go From a $50,000 Fixer Upper to a $100 Million Mansion. He created 27 self-sufficient villages in 24 cities in the last 16 years, impacting the lives of 12,000+ children and their families. McKinney is a five-time bestselling author in 4 genres, real estate “artist” who creates multi-million dollar oceanfront homes on speculation on the sun-drenched canvas of the Atlantic, Hollywood actor, ultra-marathoner, and acclaimed speaker.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Frank McKinney?

Everybody needs a place that draws out their creativity and ingenuity because that is what gets you ahead in business.

Frank grew up in a small town in Indiana and always wanted to be Willy Wonka because Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of the greatest marketing films of all time. When you combine that with Robin Hood, it gives you a good picture of who Frank McKinney is.

Motivation washes off and goes down the drain with the soap at night. Motivation and inspiration don’t last, but aspiration will alter your DNA. Who do you aspire to emulate?

We have to start small. Frank began the first five years of his career buying houses that were worth less than $100,000 and flipping them. He put in his 10,000 hours into the craft of real estate.

Approach your business like an artist would approach their craft. A lot of investors approach the business looking to cut as many corners as possible.

  • Real Estate Artistry

Most people that enter the real estate industry see a spreadsheet and look to squeeze as much as they can out of it. Frank looked at his career differently. He compressed his margins early on so that he could grow his reputation. He took the time to build his reputation before he built a house.

You must set yourself apart in your industry with your personal brand. Personal branding is the art of amplifying your essence so your customers become intoxicated by your message and you as the messenger, and then in rapid fire succession with your product next. Your personal brand is very important in the real estate business because there are so many people in it that you have to stand apart.

Authentic, Transparent, and Vulnerable is a great way to approach your life and your business. Frank had a lot of self destructive tendencies when he was young, but he swore off the dangerous habits and channeled those desires into his business.

  • Speculation Building

Frank’s niche is deeply local, the farthest project he’s done from his home is only 8 miles away. There are only roughly 160 opportunities for Frank to build on the oceanfront area he uses as his canvas.

The big lesson is to carve your niche and deeper and wider than most. Know your market better than anyone else. Frank knows his market and the market knows him.

Risk tolerance is like a muscle, the more you use it the more capable you are of taking risks that others would think are crazy. Fear is what stops us, it’s not the risk. Risk is always associated with a big change or a big challenge in our life. For Frank, the biggest risk is not taking one.

Frank is still afraid, that’s how he knows he’s moving forward and making progress.

  • Caring House

To whom much is entrusted, much is expected. This is why Frank started Caring House and started building villages across the world. Frank describes himself as a simple thinker. If he’s building homes for the world’s most wealthy, shouldn’t he be building houses for the poorest as well?

At the height of Frank’s career he felt no joy in his life because he hadn’t discovered his highest spiritual calling. If you feel empty, it’s because you haven’t nurtured the world. He started feeding the homeless for one hour a week for a year but that was only the start.

  • Frank’s Takeaway

That voice is fear, you must recognize it for what is. It will try to convince you not to do it, but where will you be if you don’t try. You may fail but that’s ok. Have a healthy ego about what you’re going to do. Believe that you’re a little bit better than other people about what you’re do and don’t be afraid to tell others about it. Where are you going to be next year if you don’t take that risk?

Rank #6: Wealth Made Easy

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Greg S. Reid is author of the Think and Grow Rich Series and Founder of Secret Knock. New York Times' bestselling author of Three Feet from Gold: Turn Your Obstacles into Opportunities! with Sharon Lechter (which turned into a successful documentary), Thoughts Are Things: Turning Your Ideas Into Realities with Bob Proctor, Stickability: The Power of Perseverance, which is part of the Think and Grow Rich series, and the new book Wealth Made Easy: Millionaires and Billionaires Help You Crack the Code to Getting Rich.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Greg Reid?

Greg grew up in the mean streets of Delmar, California. When he was younger and graduated from high school, Greg decided to skip college and instead get a place of his own and find work in sales and marketing. His father told him that he would never make a living talking to people which was obviously not true. Parents often mean well for their children, but that doesn’t mean they always give good advice or have the right information.

Greg believes his super power is not caring what other people think. People have told him what Greg could not do his entire life and he went and did them anyway. If you spend your day seeking counsel and ignoring opinions, that’s the day your life will change.

Greg knows the power of working towards his strengths and hiring his weaknesses. When writing his first book, Greg was turned down 268 times in a row. He realized that he was missing something and hired a ghost writer to shore up what was clearly one of his weaknesses.

  • What would you say to entrepreneurs that are hearing no right now?

Greg spent three years travelling the world meeting people worth millions of dollars and asked them exactly what steps they did. One of them told him that you have to get to bat 26 times. You have to swing the bat 26 times in business before you hit a homerun. This means that if you want to succeed, all you need to do is keep trying.

Stop planning, stop caring about the way you will get to your goal and instead just start taking action towards that goal. The most successful people are also the most available people.

  • Seeking Counsellors

If you can talk to people on a human level and you can understand what they want and give them what they desire, you can ultimately have everything you want in life..

  • Motivation

Greg loves what he does, which is why he keeps doing it.

Greg managed to complete his bucket list last year, a list which included some pretty incredible things that seemed completely impossible when he wrote them down. As soon as you have a dream and move toward it, you look for unexpected opportunity and people will be surprisingly eager to help you.

Once he completed his bucket list, Greg felt a little lost. That was until he discovered the fun of helping his son accomplish things on his bucket list.

  • Wealth Made Easy

Time plus land is wealth. Wealthy people are often happy to share how they did it, mainly because no one ever asks.

People know about the law of attraction and action, but they often forget the law of gestation. You have to plant the seeds of success and let the law of gestation run it’s course.

If you want to make a lot of money, all you have to do is create a product, good, or service that will people will save their money to have.

Following your passion and the money will follow is one of the biggest lies that people in the world believe. Stop following your passion and look for and seize opportunity.

There’s a concept called CPC, it stands for Clues, Patterns, and Choices. Everybody will show you who they are by giving you clues and acting in patterns, ultimately it’s your choice whether you interact with them.

  • Getting Permission

All the wealthiest people were trendsetters. They usually had contrarian ideas about investing and business that pushed them to create a path that hasn’t been blazed before.

Surround yourself with people that are getting the results you want and have respect for, not people that you have influence over.

  • Secret Knock

The Secret Knock is the greatest event that you can’t go to. It brings people together that are thriving and want to accomplish more. You don’t have to be rich and successful to attend, you just must have the willingness to want to be.

Reference: Wealth Made Easy: Millionaires and Billionaires Help You Crack the Code to Getting Rich, Greg Reid

  • Greg’s Takeaway

Stop sharing your ideas, goals, and aspirations with the people you know are not going to support you. Seek someone that has already had the results you want and surround yourself with people that are ultimately going to help you succeed.

Rank #8: Build Your Real Estate Investing Team With Bob Lachance

Podcast cover
Read more

Bob Lachance has been an active business owner and real estate investor since 2004. Bob is an entrepreneur by nature and currently owns, operates and manages many different businesses around the world. Bob helped create one of the top Real Estate Coaching and Mentor programs in existence today and also created one of the premiere Virtual Assistant Staffing companies, REVA Global LLC. Bob is an expert in the real estate investing space and has an incredible reputation for creation, implementation and execution.

Bob Lachance is a sought-after mentor and industry expert, lending his voice to countless real estate investors, startups and entrepreneurs looking to take their businesses to the next level. Prior to getting into the business sector, Bob had a successful 8 year professional ice hockey career which allowed him the privilege of traveling and living all over the United States and Europe. Bob was also a member of the 1995 National Championship Boston University Ice Hockey Team.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Bob Lachance?

Bob is definitely not a Harvard grad but he would say he is a coach. He’s played pretty much every single sport in addition to hockey and in each instance Bob’s father was the coach where his coaching style was to coach each child the same way. His motto was “each kid is going to get as good as they are going to get, not as good as their parents wanted them to get.”

As much time, energy, and effort as you put into something will determine how good you’re going to get. Bob was born to coach and help people.

  • Why was real estate the thing for you after hockey?

Bob went to Boston University on a full scholarship but when you get something like education for free, you tend not to take advantage of it. After choosing to play for the St. Louis Blues instead of completing his education, Bob didn’t have much to fall back. After searching the internet for careers that didn’t require a degree to get into and real estate kept coming up, he decided to jump in with both feet.

At the time of Bob’s first purchase, he was missing a lot of resources and knowledge but he figured it out as he went along.

Goal setting plays a major part in your success. Setting small goals and attaining them will give you the fuel to keep going. If you want to really accomplish something you have to give it your full effort and stop listening to the naysayers.

The 2008 recession was the perfect example as to why passive income is so important.

  • What’s your favorite part of investing in real estate?

When Bob started he had no systems or processes to keep attaining his goals. He knew he needed to create those things so he started looking for a team to join. Bob believes that you are only as good as your team.

After running a number of short sale transactions, Bob and his partner started looking for what they can add to help more investors become successful. This drive lead to Bob’s many coaching programs as well as his virtual assistant company.

REVA Global

Real estate is essentially a very simple process that has five steps: Marketing, Lead Intake, Deal Analysis, Offers and Contracts, and Selling the Property. REVA Global trains virtual assistants to take different tasks off your plate.

The top tasks for REVA VA’s in short term rentals are managing the CRM and coordinating maintenance. Minor repairs can take up a crazy amount of time out of your day and a VA can take care of all of that for you.

  • Transitions

Problem solving is the ultimate skill. There is a million dollar business no matter where you go. In the end it’s about filling a need.

Coaching and the communication behind it has been a very important skill set that Bob has transferred over from hockey.

  • Bob’s Takeaway

Get educated in what you want to do. Education and mentoring are the first things that Bob would do. Take a course and then implement it. Learn it, live it, gift it.

Rank #10: Networking Strategies For Cracking The Funding Code

Podcast cover
Read more

Judy Robinett is the founder of JRobinett Enterprises and author of How to Be a Power Connector: The 5+50+100 Rule for Turning Your Business Network into Profits. Robinett is a business thought leader who is known as “the woman with the titanium digital Rolodex.” She has been profiled in Fast Company, Forbes, Venture Beat, Huffington Post, and Bloomberg Businessweek as a sterling example of the new breed of “super connectors” who use their experience and networks to accelerate growth and enhance profitability. In her more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur and corporate leader, Robinett has served as the CEO of both public and private companies and in management positions at Fortune 500 companies.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Judy Robinett?

Judy went to school in a small town in Idaho and always loved making things happens and solving problems. She learned how to break out of her shell but found she couldn’t survive in the corporate world. She saw men all around her getting promoted and making more money and decided she needed to understand what was happening. She learned about the connections those people had and the importance of knowing the right people.

Most networking groups are a waste of time. You have to be careful what room you get in. The people with money tend to be in different kinds of groups. There is no lack of money in the world, the trick is figuring out who you need to know and coming up with a plan to get to know them.

The thing Judy found out is the millionaires and billionaires are just like everybody else. They have problems and if you can solve their problem, you go to the front of the line.

  • Networking Strategies

Learn to talk to strangers. Only 12% of the population is clinically shy, but over half of us believe ourselves to be shy. The two tricks to talking to strangers are to ask a good question, or offer a heartfelt compliment. People want others to care about them and you never know who the other person might be.

The common advice of keep your head down, work hard, and people will notice you doesn’t work.

Judy didn’t figure out that networking was something she wanted to learn until she was 30. During her journey, she learned that she could add value to the people by connecting them to each other. After realizing that owning a business was the path to success for her, Judy nearly went broke. That was when she heard words that would change her life from her bankruptcy lawyer “They can break you, but they can’t eat you.”

If bad things hadn’t happened in your past, there is a good chance that you would be in a worse situation today.

Sometimes it makes sense to explore some expensive hobbies instead of trying to squeeze value out of networking events.

The secret to networking strategies is to get to know people and build a relationship. The goal is to get the second date, not close in the first conversation.

Joining a not-for-profit is another good option. Charities often have the top local business leaders as part of their board and they need people to help. Everybody’s problem is someone else’s solution.

All the people you need to meet probably have either a banker, a lawyer, or an accountant.

The good ol boy network is being chipped away at one day at a time. In nearly every town there is an incubator and wealthy people are always looking for a good deal.

If your story is good and it’s a good opportunity, people are going to want to meet you and talk with you.

Don’t ask for money, ask for advice. Make sure you’re with the right investor, not everyone invests in your niche.

There is no perfect platform to connect investors with people who are looking for money, that’s why we have so many intermediary groups and have to do the leg work. Social media can make it easier to reach people as long as you’re gracious and kind.

People remember small acts and gestures of kindness. Recommend a book, send them some research or information that might be helpful, get to know them and find out how you can add value to whatever they’re doing.

  • Judy’s Takeaway

If you’re going to raise money, Google your local angel groups and reach out to them. 75% of angel investors invest locally. Call your chamber of commerce and ask them who you should talk to that may be able to help you with your project. Talk to two strangers this week and start a conversation.

Rank #11: 90 Days To 5k: Passive Income Real Estate Investing

Podcast cover
Read more

Edna Keep, author of Multiple Ways To Wealth: Creating Your Prosperous Lifestyle and real estate investment teacher, has a deep understanding of what investors want in a deal. As a former financial advisor, Edna helps connect investors with everyday people who want to create true passive income for the long term.

Edna’s team has a portfolio of $60 Million they built in less than ten years on primarily multifamily units and primarily with none of their own money. Her process is proven, which she now teaches through coaching and her Mastermind groups.

Edna lives near Regina, Saskatchewan between Calgary and Winnipeg with her husband Warren and teenage daughters Desiree and Dhani.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Edna Keep?

Edna recalls a teacher that once told her she was very social and if she could only channel that ability, she would inevitably become successful, despite the fact that she was barely passing his class!

Whenever Edna has a challenge, she tends to call her key people and brainstorm with them, she prefers to think on her feet. Her natural curiosity and desire to get to know people is one of her unexpected super powers.

  • Hope and Regret

It doesn’t matter how old you are, tomorrow is a new day. You can always start being an entrepreneur now.

Edna was 48 when she started in passive income real estate investing and she didn’t intend on becoming a full time investor. She actually walked away from her mutual fund investment business because she felt that real estate was such a great option.

  • Where did the courage to make the leap come from?

Edna originally had a decent job and made a good amount of money but she was extremely bored. She wanted more and had to do correspondence courses because she didn’t have extra money for school. The common thread in Edna’s experience is constant education and always being willing to try new things plus the desire for more.

Edna always wanted to be financially free and being a financial advisor was the vehicle that initially got her there. Eventually she was down to working one day a week while doing passive income real estate investing part time

Edna has a history of taking a chance, but she believes the key is taking a chance on yourself. Don’t try to do everything yourself, the most successful people have coaches that help them work through challenges.

There is a four step process to success and the final step is teaching what you know to others.

  • What have you learned about mindset?

You are always beating yourself up for what you’re not, but literally everything in the world is learnable.

School is not as important as an education. We have a great schooling system, but we have a poor education system.

Edna always loved learning as long it was something she was interested in. A lot of people think education is limited to the traditional school, but there are a number of resources online you can access very easily.

You have to get to know yourself to understand what you will be good at. What did you do as a kid that you loved, and is there a way to turn that into a business?

  • Why bother coaching passive income real estate investing?

People were always asking Edna how she had been so successful in such a short period of time, and she realized that it’s all about the steps you take and the systems you set up. She started helping people achieve what she has and it’s one of the most fulfilling things she’s done.

Reference: Multiple Ways To Wealth: Creating Your Prosperous Lifestyle, Edna Keep

  • Edna’s Takeaway

Watch the Masterclass and take some action. Argue for your greatness, not your limitations. The voice in your head can stop you but you can change that voice. If Edna can do it, of course you can too!

Rank #13: From Employee To Real Estate Investing

Podcast cover
Read more

Tom Cafarella always dreamed of following in his grandfather’s footsteps (a very successful landlord) and become a successful real estate mogul. Instead, he followed everyone’s advice and took on a traditional 9-to-5 job as an accountant. The problem: his heart was in real estate investing. It didn’t take long to get fired from his job due to his daydreaming about his passion.

On this episode of the CashFlow Diary Podcast, Tom shares that if he were to go back and do it all over again he would find a coach that is successful in whatever field he was looking into and align himself with them. The hardest part of going out on your own is the trial and error process, if you can shorten that time you will make money a lot faster and ramp your business up a lot quicker. By having some you can work with that’s a little bit ahead of you, you can limit your downside.

Rank #16: Building A Real Estate Investing Portfolio With No Money

Podcast cover
Read more

Author  of  the  book “Free  Houses”,  Austin  Miller  has  built  a  real  estate  portfolio  of  16  units  worth over  1.2  million  dollars  with  little  to  zero  of  his  own  money.  Over  the  course  of  acquiring  several properties,  he  is  fittingly  labeled  as  a  creative  financing  real  estate  investor.  Thinking  outside  the  box from  traditional  investing,  Austin  has  outlined  each  of  his  strategies  chapter  by chapter  in  his  book.

After  working  for  corporate  America  for  five  years,  he  was  able  to  quit  his  job  to  pursue  real  estate and  small  business  ownership  full  time.  Aside  from  real  estate,  Austin  enjoys  spending  time  with  his family  and  his  church  group.  His  other  passions  include  music  and  hunting.  He  also enjoys  talking about  real  estate  with  anyone  interested—veterans  and  rookies  alike.  He  is  active  in  his  local investors  club  and  serves  as  a  mentor  for  new  investors.

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is Austin Miller?

Austin wears a lot of hats but at the end of the day he’s someone who is willing to work really hard to achieve his goals. He has always been a collector and really liked acquiring capital and assets as part of his business.

Living in the midwest gives Austin a unique perspective from the cities on the coast, he knows that slow and steady strategy is the way to win the race.

  • Cards To Real Estate Investing

It takes the innocence of a child to point out the obvious. Seeing developers as a child put Austin on the path to real estate investing.

After getting a job with a commercial real estate builder in 2009, he observed the economy turning around and decided to pursue his dream of real estate investing. Austin needed to get some additional education in order to get started with real estate. Austin feels that he learned more in the six months after he graduated than during his whole time in school.

  • Free Houses

There is no secret in real estate, the education is out there if you look for it. Especially now with the number of podcasts available.Just being around people that want to do the same thing as you is very helpful.

There is no such thing as a free lunch, but as long as you are willing to exchange time and effort, you don’t need any money.

There are a lot of different ways to access cash to fund your deals and it’s normally the first hurdle people face. You have to start thinking in terms of possibilities instead of limitations.

You can Google private money and you can find a funding source. Your average bank wants 20%, but when you change the conversation beyond the usual perspective you can open a lot of opportunities.

Some people have a lot of drive, and some don’t. The world is made for disciplined men, if you get distracted you will never achieve your dreams. Most people will find excuses instead of doing the work.

Real estate investing is an evolving game. Single family homes is one of the most solid investments you can make but there are lots of other opportunities on the market.

Those who walk with the wise, become wise. If you want to learn, teach.

Reference: Free Houses, Austin Miller

  • Austin’s Takeaway

Remove the naysayers, internal and external. If you have a goal, remove the negativity because it will only slow you down.

Rank #17: CFD 274 – How I Did My First 117 Units of Property and Beyond

Podcast cover
Read more

In this short Cash Flow diary podcast episode I talk about a few of the basics, like how I did my first deals (because I get the question all the time), how to raise capital and how to generate leads. What you’ll learn is to do things in a certain sequence, which will help get others to enroll in your process. It’s like planting your lands in preparation for a harvest. You have to plow the land, prepare the soil, seed it, do a few more things to keep cultivating and nurturing your crops… and finally get to the harvest. (In real estate transactions, the close of the deal is your harvest.)

In this episode you will learn about the importance of conducting the III interview (triple “I”) with everyone you want to work with. That’s because you want your buyers, investors and sellers to be in total alignment with your goals, mission and vision. If they don’t fit you can’t force them to fit. If you do, you’ll be sorry at some point down the road.

You’ll also learn how to generate leads wherever you go. Whether that’s at Starbucks or the mall or in line at the grocery store. Again, it’s like planting seeds. You don’t just plant in one spot. You spread them around so you get a big, healthy crop.

If you want a better look at generating leads in the real world, you need to check out our Lead Machine Video Course. If you do, you can actually begin generating leads minutes after taking the course! It happens all the time. (It gives you all my offline lead-generation strategies I used when I was starting out as an investor and strategies I use even today!)

You will want to take notes as you listen to this episode. It is taken from a recent Periscope session I did on lead generation. We are archiving these videos in our member area, so if you are a Cashflow Core Member you can go watch it and take screen shots of the graphics I drew in this one! (BTW, you’ll hear my kids in the background. They have taken the role of my official “heart monitors” because we’re trying to reach a million hearts on Periscope by the end of the month.) Learn more.

Rank #19: CFD 428 - Become an Irresistible Consultant

Podcast cover
Read more

David A. Fields is the Managing Director of Ascendant Consortium, a group of elite, independent business consultants whose clients span the Fortune 500. He is the author of the new bestselling book The Irresistible Consultant's Guide to Winning Clients: 6 Steps to Unlimited Clients & Financial Freedom.

Named one of Advertising Age magazine’s “Marketing Top 100,” Fields has worked with consulting firms and individual consultants all over the world who are anxious to grow their practices and earn a steadier, more reliable income.  

He has been featured in Bloomberg Businessweek, USA Today, CNNMoney and The Huffington Post, writes a monthly column for IndustryWeek and Consulting magazines. Fields is a sought-after speaker to national and international executive audiences.  

Podcast Highlights

  • Who is David Fields?

David considers himself an “everyday hero”. After business school, David started in corporate America doing sales before getting into consulting and spinning off his own firm with a partner. After four weeks, his partner jumped ship and David found himself with a company that had virtually no clients. Some timely advice from a colleague which revealed David’s innate ability to sell consulting services changed the course of David’s business.

  • What makes you different?

David is willing to persevere and try again, even in the face of failure. Be willing to find help, ask for it and keep trying.

David’s philosophy is that all the answers come from outside your life. As a consultant, it doesn’t matter what you want to do. It’s not about you, it’s about the clients.

  • The Rise of the Independent Professional

There are an abundance of role models for kids that are 15, 16, and 17 years old that have been successful in business that are driving a generation of independence.

  • Why do so many consultants have challenges landing clients?

Consultants are too focused on themselves instead of paying attention to the market. It’s not about all the things you can do, it’s about what the market needs you to solve.

When you are very specific with what you do, people will call you first if they have that specific problem. You have to pick a problem that is pervasive enough and expensive enough that people want to solve.

  • Why do consultants undercharge?

In many cases, people are undercharging for their services. When you charge higher fees, you have the room to do whatever you need to get the client the best possible result.

Whether or not you are undercharging is the hardest question to answer. Can you create a higher value? If so, you can charge larger amounts.

Clients aren’t paying you by the hour, they are paying you for a specific results. You don’t charge the same for every client.

Have standardized systems and approaches, not a standard list of services. Tailor your solution to your client to fit like a glove. Discovering what is driving your client better than the even know themselves will make you the obvious choice.

Before you can make a sale and get more visibility, you have to make a bigger impact.

Reference: The Irresistible Consultant's Guide to Winning Clients: 6 Steps to Unlimited Clients & Financial Freedom, David Fields

  • David’s Takeaway

Listen to the voice and manage it, address and test its concerns. We all have that voice but the question is: does it scare you or do you use it to help you move forward?
