Lauren Dato is another great connection I’ve made recently. She wanted to start working in Real Estate in High School but wasn’t aware of courses or college programs to learn about it. The idea of going into Real Estate never left her mind and she finally jumped into it doing research and wanted to come on the show to ask me some questions. Her research is very thorough, and she asks some of the best questions I’ve had in a while.

In today's episode, I answer Lauren’s questions about getting started in wholesaling and what to consider in a location to get started. I explain the difference between Wholesaling and “Wholetailing” and why you would want to start Wholetailing. I also discuss the biggest issues starting out, and why it’s important to remember that practice makes perfect, especially when starting cold calling.

"For me, I'm somebody that I will bang my head against the brick wall until the brick wall breaks. Y'know are you that type of person? or if you don't see some success quickly do you have circumstances that make it harder to move forward?” –Don Costa
