Rank #2: Episode 237: Keeping What You Make

Podcast cover
Read more

Garrett Gunderson is called a “financial genius” in entrepreneurial circles, but he wasn’t born with a silver spoon. In fact, Garrett’s blue-collar roots are what make him so passionate about helping entrepreneurs build Economic Independence.

Garrett comes from a fourth generation coal mining family, raised in rural Utah. His great-grandfather left San Giovanni, Italy in 1913 to escape government corruption and excessive taxation. He came to America and was separated from his family for 7 years, living in a tent so he could build a better life for his family.

Garrett’s approach to personal finance is firmly rooted in this history. His company, Wealth Factory, helps self-made business owners and entrepreneurs who understand hard work — but who haven’t been given the proper financial tools to build lasting wealth. Because even though Garrett’s great-grandfather understood the value of hard work, he never got to enjoy it. And without proper structures, hard work is like eating soup with a fork. You keep busy, but stay hungry.

So Garrett imagined his great-grandfather was his client. How could he have helped him grow his wealth faster? And with that thought in mind, he built the kind of company that would have helped his great-grandfather build Economic Independence in 3-7 years instead of taking three generations to break the cycle of scarcity.

The process Wealth Factory uses to help you is simple. First, they recover leaking money that’s rightfully yours. Next they connect you with experts who create a framework that preserves, protects and grows your money. And finally they build structures that help you live wealthy now while creating a lasting family legacy.

This family legacy — and the burning desire to pass on what he’s learned to his children — are what drive Garrett to help others. He now spends his time innovating new financial tools and technologies that help small business owners and entrepreneurs like you build lasting wealth, live the life you love, and pass on a lasting family legacy of your own. He believes your legacy is defined not just by money, but by the values and contribution you pass along.

Garrett lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, two children and a dog. When he’s not traveling, speaking, or spending time with his family, Garrett enjoys Crossfit, eats Paleo and makes people laugh at local stand up comedy clubs.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:
How Garrett started his first business at 15 years old and how it kick-started his financial education
Why finding a good mentor and continuing your financial learning is critical for success
Why it’s important to save as much money as possible on taxes and to have a new tax professional review your tax returns every three years
How to build an effective tax team with four key people who can save you money and why you should meet with them quarterly
Which questions you should be regularly asking the professionals on your tax team to turn expenses into deductions
Why thinking outside the box and using the reclassification of income can find tax deductions you might have missed and save you money
Examples of finding unconventional ways to get tax credits through the purchase and donation of artwork and historical building easements
How to get a free copy of Garrett’s book “What Would The Rockefellers Do?”
Why hiring a good team of tax professionals will more than pay for itself and shouldn’t be considered an expense
Garrett’s advice for new entrepreneurs for keeping more of your money in your pocket

Rank #16: Episode 90: Skiptracing In Bulk

Podcast cover
Read more

Larry Higgins is a real estate investor based out of Houston, TX. After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2003, he began his career in construction project management which he thoroughly enjoyed until 2013, when for the first time in his life, he found himself in a job from which he got no sense of satisfaction and decided he needed to make a change. That’s when he decided it was time to quit and jump into real estate full time although he had zero experience in it and had never even done a deal.

Fortunately, during this transition, Larry stumbled across Mitch Stephen whose mentorship helped him hit the ground running.

Like so many other investors have experienced, before he knew it, Larry had a huge stack of returned mail from his mail campaigns and he knew he needed to do something with it. After getting in touch with several skip trace services he realized how expensive it can be to skip trace so he decided to learn how to become his own skip tracer. Two deals later and he fully realized how crucial it is to be able to skip trace returned mail.

But it wasn’t just the returned mail that got Larry’s attention. As he worked his business, he couldn’t help but notice that some letters weren’t returned for weeks, months, or even years (yes years) after they were initially mailed.

He also witnessed first-hand how in most cases where his mail was received and he happened to get an appointment, it had a lot to do with luck in what he calls the yellow letter lottery. This is where the seller has received a stack of mail from other investors and the seller decides to pick just two or three people to call and get offers. No matter how great you think your mailing list is, if you’re in a larger market, the odds are there’s at least a dozen if not dozens of other investors mailing the same people.

So with a keen understanding that he was losing valuable time and leaving too much to chance with mailing, he knew he needed to create a system that allowed him to skip trace high volumes of people or lists and then call or text them. In another stroke of luck, Larry had just started partnering with Will Denker, an established and successful investor in Houston. With their combined knowledge and experience and the great team Will already had assembled, they were able to create the system they envisioned.

Now that they have created this system they no longer do mail campaigns and they rely strictly on skip tracing lists of potentially motivated sellers and contacting them via phone calls or text messages and it’s transformed their business. The ability to skip trace high volumes of people in a cost-effective manner has not only given them the ability to find and call or text the potential sellers, but it allows them to scan the lists and identify great deals that are flying under every other investor’s radar. The bottom line result is that they are more successful at getting deals and the deals are much more profitable. After first implementing their system their average assignment fee grew from $10,000 to $22,000 and then after becoming much more targeted they doubled it again to their current average assignment fee of $44,000.

Because they now have their strategy defined and much more targeted, Larry and Will recently decided to create skipgenie.com to begin sharing their high-volume skip trace system with other investors in various markets around the country, and helping them develop and tailor a system around their specific goals.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:
Larry’s background
The benefits of skip tracing vs. sending a piece of mail
How the bulk skip tracing process works
The strategy for looking for good deals
What the ‘yellow letter lottery’ is all about
How building a rapport can help you get an offer
