Are you struggling in your investing business? Is someone holding you accountable?
Well, I have some interesting thoughts for you about those questions… and some colorful language too…
So, years ago, I had a mentor who had a big impact on me. Only, he was kind of a potty mouth.
Basically, he shared 2 solid pieces of advice for investors:
- Stop farting around.
- Stop being a sissy.
Anyone who knows me well, knows that I don’t really cuss and swear. So, I edited the way he put it to me years ago, but I’m sure you can connect the dots for the stronger meaning.
Here’s the thing…
I know that mindset and positive thinking are important. But that’s only the 1st step…
You can have the best mindset in the world… you can read The Secret… have a dream board… visualize… say positive affirmations—but if you don’t stop farting around and stop being a sissy—and start taking some action to market and make offers—then you’re not going to have success, period.
Mindset is just the 1st step.
This is what I teach my students and clients…
If you’re struggling, I ask you: How many offers are you making a week?
How much marketing are you doing?
And, are you taking enough of the right action?
Listen, if you spent $20k on real estate investing education, but you don’t want to spend $1,000 on marketing, then there’s a problem. :-/
If you want to be an investor and do deals, then get out there and make it happen.
Create a solid marketing plan and start sending direct mail. Start making offers. 5 offers a day is a great place to start.
And get an accountability partner to hold your feet to the fire.
Stop messin’ around. Stop complaining. Take action.
