One of the fundamental truths about investing is that the stock market is incredibly volatile and fickle, and that the people who do well over time opt for a more stable wealth building vehicle. Many investors who were burned in the last recession have worked on building something that is more stable - and very often that’s investing in loans. The …
 
When the market is good, people flood into real estate on the promise of earning tons of money. The problem is, a market this good can only be followed by a huge correction, and newly minted agents who wanted instant gratification will be in for a rude awakening. Real estate is a long-term play, not a path to short term gain. It takes time and hard…
 
When a 90-year cycle meets a 40-year downturn, what we can expect is the greatest bubble in history, followed by an adjustment that’s literally decades in the making.

The most lucrative and profitable part of real estate takes place right in front of agents, but the opportunities often pass them by.

Very few people in our world are able to live their perfect life. Instead of living authentically, most people are miserable and over-burdened in their daily lives. It goes back to how we were programmed as kids. We’re taught to conform, not to take risks, and even when we’re encouraged to dream big, those same people also tell us to be realistic. …
 
The journey to financial freedom begins when we learn the truth about money, see what the wealthy do with it, and most importantly, implement it in our own lives.

Conventional financial advice dictates that we should save everything, spend nothing, let compound interest work for us and hope that will give us a good life.

The real estate investing game is all about relationships. We need to have relationships with our community, the sellers, our private lenders and bankers.

Hard money lenders are one of the most common sources of funding for investors, but not all lenders are created equal.

A great deal of what we’re taught about money isn’t the truth, and also doesn’t allow us to achieve financial freedom.

Some brands just market products, while other brands are powerful movements, and there’s a reason for this distinction.

80 - 90% of our success in anything is driven by our mindset. Only 10 - 20% of what we achieve comes down to the mechanics and the methods we use.

We often put a lot of our focus on the tactics that will make us successful, but if we aren’t…

90 cents of every single dollar we make as Americans goes to somebody else, and we give that money up willingly.

Many new investors hit a wall thinking they can’t get any money for deals. A rough economy can have us believing that there’s absolutely no easy way to find private lenders.
