Transcript:

Speaker 1: From coast to coast, Epic Investors are doing the most, it’s time for another Epic Field Report.

Matt Theriault: So on the phone with me, I invited a participant in our pilot program, your first deal as he completed the program and cashed his first check and I wanted to come on the show and talk about it. So, Jayron, welcome to the show.

Jayron: Thanks. Pleasure to be here man.

Matt: Yeah, thanks for participating, thanks for following through as it paid off for you. Congratulations. So you posted a check inside of the course, that’s part of the agreement and you get 300 bucks for that. So how did you find this deal?

Jayron: Actually, with this deal, in particular, my dad told me about it. I told him, hey, you know, I’m getting the whole sell, I didn’t get into the real estate investing arena and I just kinda let him know what I do, what I want to do, somehow, I mean he heard of a lady who was selling her home and she wanted to sell it quickly and then the price, was shocking that she wanted to sell it for, which is $2,000, and I said, “Look, I will buy it. Yes, send her to me.” And so that’s basically how I found the deal, is through word of mouth through my dad.

Matt: Got it. So what’s the lesson there?

Jayron: The lesson there, oh man. Deals could fall in your lap or you could go out and chase them. You will hope, you know, you dream to have them come to you, but just through word of mouth, letting people know what you do could also land you deals.

Matt: Yup. Don’t keep what you do a secret, right?

Jayron: Yeah, that’s true.

Matt: Perfect. So you sold the property, so you wholesaled it, right?

Jayron: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Matt: And you made 1500 bucks. Need I just ask this question. The biggest lesson learned in this transaction would be?

Jayron: The biggest lesson learned in this transaction, I’d say is to, for me to be a little more confident. With this deal, it was so crazy. You always want to find out all the information about everything. The lady was wanting to sell her house but she only owned half of it. So I had to go dig in real deep. Then there was a lienholder who I had to get in contact with, and I wholesaled it to the lienholder who owned the other half. He bought his own house back for $3,500. So if any lessons in it, man, just don’t give up. Find out all the details on the transactions because sometimes when they are too good to be true they can be. But you know, I did all of this with no money. Even though I thought I was going to have to pay money for the title because in Louisiana, you know they do abstract and all that. They charge like $250 but in this case, the title representative, the title attorney, he said, “You know what, this one’s on me,” so I still didn’t have to come out of the packet. I was like, whoa! Man, it sounds too good to be true, but it is good and it is true for sure.

Matt: Right. The deal had a buyer built right into the deal.

Jayron: Absolutely.

Matt: That’s good. That’s good. So what’s next?

Jayron: So yeah, I’m just still keeping at it.

Matt: Nice. Yeah, so if you want to, it’s not quite how the course plays out, but I think what the lesson here is, or what the evidence is, is that by just doing the activity, it creates opportunity. Most of the time it’ll create direct opportunity, but sometimes as Jayron discovered, it’ll create that opportunity indirectly. And if you’re in the game, and you’re doing the activities, and your mind is right, then you’re in a position to actually seize that opportunity.

Jayron: Absolutely.

Matt: Right? So if you’d like to check out our pilot program, your first deal course, you can go to freerealestateinvestingcourse.com. There are all the details right there. Just check it out and if you like what you see go ahead and join us. Jayron, thanks for joining us, keep doing what you’re doing and let us know if you need any help. All right?

Jayron: Yes sir, will do. Thank you.

Matt: You Bet. Take Care.

Speaker 1: Making offers and cashing checks. What’s new? What’s next with Ashley Monteon.

Ash Monteon: Hey, this is Ash, Matt’s assistant. We’ve got a great episode ahead as Matt’s going to show you how to make it rain. But before he gets started, I wanted to give you the scoop on what’s new and what’s next at Epic Real Estate. Let’s start with what’s new? In The Epic Pro Academy, pound for pound, the most successful online community of real estate investors, Sean had a great payday and picked up a $10,000 check for a wholesale deal. Good job, Sean. Ryan, Ryan posted a $15,000 check for a refi. Awesome there Ryan. Jack, Jack had three cash-out refinances and two of his flips are featured in his local design and living magazine. I actually took a look at the link you posted there, Jack. Beautiful, beautiful properties. Congratulations to both you and Josh, amazing stuff. You guys are doing amazing stuff out there in Fargo.

Tim, Tim got a property under contract and has several other offers in the pipeline. Kevin, Kevin also got a seller finance property under contract and he said, “A couple more of these and I will be free.” Chris, Chris had his biggest win today. His focus has changed from flipping to build a cash balance to flipping to build his portfolio. His new mantra to holds per month as he continues to execute his Aria Ace game plan put into play back in November. This past week, he also closed on the sale of a turnkey rehab, that got him a nice $25,000 profit and he had to down a buy and hold that he’d been targeting in a neighborhood for its appreciation potential. The cash on cash return for that one is going to be 26.3%, awesome job Chris. We’re super, super proud of you. Thank you to all the investors who posted for follow through Friday, we’ll be looking out next week to see all the great things you guys accomplish.

What’s next at Epic Real Estate? Well, the Epic Intensive lead machine workshop. It’s going to be July 18th through the 20th in Manhattan Beach, California. I’m sure you’ve heard Matt mentioned details on this three-day workshop. What he may not have mentioned, it’s a little secret actually. I’m actually not sure if I’m supposed to be sharing this on the podcast, but when you’re signing up on epicintensive.com, on page two, there’s an option to upgrade to VIP. We wanted to take this opportunity to create an unforgettable experience for our VIP guests. So we convinced Matt to charter a yacht, that’s all I can say about that for now, but it’s going to be a really, really fun event. I mean, dude, who doesn’t love a fun boat party, and you get to party with the epic crew. So get your VIP tickets while they’re still there. That’s all I’ve got for you guys today. See you guys next week for what’s new and what’s next. Enjoy the show.

Speaker 1: This is Theriault Media.

Matt: Yeah, hello and welcome. Welcome to The Epic Real Estate Investing Show. This is where everyday people come to get the tips, strategies, and tactics to escape the rat race using real estate, where we move at the speed of instruction, where we move faster than our doubts, where we have no fear of competition because we are the competition that they are afraid of. As evidenced by what you’ve heard so far, The Epic Investors are making money moves and I have one of those epic investors on the phone today where we first met. I think it was at an Epic Intensive probably three years ago or so. And thank you to Ash for letting that out of the bag about the private yacht. I did charter that for some special guests and my team, and I’ve reserved some space for the VIPs. So when you purchase a VIP ticket to The Epic Intensive, that automatically puts you on the list, it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Anyway, our guest, he’s been making some serious money moves of his own and I invited him to share with you exactly how he’s doing it. So please help me welcome to the show Mr. Greg Helbeck. Greg, welcome to Epic Real Estate Investing.

Greg Helbeck: Thank you so much for having me, Matt. This is the first real estate podcast I’ve ever heard. So to be a guest is truly an honor. It’s a, I guess it came full circle.

Matt: Nice. No, and that’s kind of why you’re here because you had shared a story with me or a testimonial thought with me. Just totally unsolicited, I just got an email from you out of the blue one day and I have a little bit of it here, and I’ll go ahead and read it, why not? It says, “Right around three years ago I started listening to your podcast. I remember I was at a dead end job cutting weeds for $10 an hour, you were explaining how to invest in real estate and it seems so distant to me because I was a broke 20-year-old in the middle of college with no plan or direction. Your podcast planted the seed in me to make the decision to become a full-time real estate investor. And I’m proud to say three years later that decision has changed my life.” And it goes on. And basically, the big quote out there was, “I’m doing two to four deals per month and netting 25,000 to $30,000 per wholesale deal.” You are living in Los Angeles, you’re running your business virtually and I just wanted to bring you on and you know, congratulate you in person.

And I know we met in person a while back at The Epic Intensive, that was a pleasure. Give me a little bit of a how starter. So you listened to a podcast, the seed was planted, you came to The Epic Intensive and boom, I didn’t hear from you for a while, but then all of a sudden you start appearing everywhere on social media and you’re showing checks, and you’re standing in front of rooms and you’re doing amazing things. So tell me what happened.

Greg: Thanks. Thanks. So yes. So I’m, I got started when I was really young. I was 20 years old. I was coming off a hockey career and I wanted to play professionally, it never worked out, so I had to kind of go to school and kind of face reality. So I remember I was, I had a summer job, it was kind of like a contracting job. I would go cut weeds on my own time then the guy would pay me in cash. I remember, you know, when I was cutting these weeds, I was like, why not learn how to make some money? I don’t want to have a job my whole life, I never liked having a job. So I discovered the Epic Real Estate Investing Show, ironically. And I remember listening to like your first episodes and like you were talking about how to wholesale and flip contracts and all that. It just really appealed to me.

So I listened to a bunch of podcasts, your show, Sean Terry’s show. Then I went to a little law like free event, you know, I guess those seminars, they kind of travel around from city to city, went to one of those, joined like the low-level package or whatever, spent a couple of thousand bucks, got my foot in the door just some higher level education. And I just kind of hit the ground running. In the beginning, I was really young at the time, 20 years old, no one would take me seriously, then after like nine months, I got my first deal. And then after that, it sort of snowballed. I started doing more and more deals consistently, but I still didn’t have that much experience or capital.

A year and a half after that, actually, more like two years after that, I started to get pretty good at marketing and like negotiating. So then I started to make bigger spreads in my New York market and then eventually I started to go into other markets and do it remotely. So I jumped into the Texas market, the Dallas market to be specific, a couple of years ago and started figuring out how to do it kind of virtually, because New York where I’m from originally, I was running into some problems with attorneys and stuff like that. So I wanted to kind of spread out my strategy and go into some title company state so I don’t have to deal with all the BS.

So fast forward to today, I’m buying still like two to four properties a month, I’m not only wholesaling now, I’m actually doing some more, just kind of closing on them, doing some light renovation and then getting it back on the market, just cut some of those markets we can do that and make more spreads. But, and then I’m looking for more into rentals. So that’s kind of the high-level overview for me.

Matt: Nice. So there we go. There’s a bunch of stuff and I want to touch on. And you know, we’re running a pilot program right now where we’re helping people get their very first deal. And you shared with, just shared with me that it took you nine months to get that first deal. What do those nine months look like? And what eventually switched to where it popped?

Greg: Sure. No, it’s a great question. So I wasn’t very consistent in the beginning and I didn’t have the right expectations because I didn’t have the experience or you know, I didn’t have a track record or anything. So like the learning curve was tough in the beginning just because I didn’t know what I didn’t know and I could have been much more consistent, and I should have tracked my activities better than I did. Because I was just kind of going out, running around like a chicken with my head cut off and I wasn’t really like measuring anything or seeing what was working. So I think if I was a little bit more effective, and what I was doing was, I was just putting out bandit signs and I was calling on like Craigslist because that’s really all I could do and I was handwriting letters too. I was doing that, that was rough.

But you know, basically, what was the question one more time? Was it, what did I do to get those deals? Or how did I stick through it to get to the …

Matt: Yeah. So you’ve already answered a little bit. So it took you nine months because you admitted that you were inconsistent, you weren’t really tracking your activities and then now you’re working bandit signs, Craigslist, and yellow letters. So what actually, what popped for you first?

Greg: It was a bandit sign.

Matt: Okay.

Greg: So I started to put them out more consistently and then I got one good call and I actually partnered up with another investor who was experienced because I was so new, I had no buyers or anything, and I said, “Hey man, I think I have a deal.” He said, “Yep, you got to deal.” Said, “Let’s partner on it. I’ll sell it to my buyers. We’ll do a JB agreement and we’ll split it and I’ll show you exactly how this works.” That was like the key because of the value I got from him showing me what to do, was totally worth splitting the deal. 50/50. So it’s off of bandit sign. The lady called, it was an absentee owner, you know, some tenant issues, vicious dogs in the house and she sold it to us. We found a buyer and assigned the contract and it was like crazy because I took action for so long, like nine months and I didn’t make any money right away. So I’m like, you know, when I actually got my first check, I was like, oh my God, you can make money in this business. It’s interesting, you know?

Matt: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Greg: And then from there it kind of snowballed.

Matt: And just from experience of doing this for the past decade and working with people trying to get their first deal, a lot of them quit well before nine months. What was it about you that helps you persevere?

Greg: Yeah, so this is something that was key for me and I didn’t share this in the beginning. When I went to that real estate seminar, when I effortlessly listened to podcasts, I made the decision that..

I mean, do you start fresh every Monday, fail, then vow to start again with the same old real estate investing strategies that aren’t working for you? Well, you deserve to learn about a new way of contacting your leads, setting appointments, and making offers by actually setting up a really good automated lead machine so you can quickly get your hands on more discounted real estate. That’s the goal, right? Because this changes everything.

Before we get started today, this podcast, as long as you’ve been listening, even whether that’s just a week or it’s been a few years, you know it’s all about finding discounted off-market real estate deals and then what to do with them. If you’re really serious about finding these types of deals at will, then you might like to join us at the upcoming live three-day Epic Intensive Lead Machine Workshop. It’s going to be in Manhattan Beach, California on July 18th through the 20th. If that sounds good to you, then have a look at epicintensive.com. I mean, it’s California. It’s the beach. It’s the middle of summer. Bring the family, make a vacation out of it. Go to epicintensive.com and let’s make it happen. All righty? Let’s get started with the show.

Speaker 1: This is Theriault Media.

Matt: It’s financial freedom Friday and we’re going to do something a little bit differently today. What has inspired this different type of episode was what happened this past Wednesday on way back Wednesday. If you’re just finding us for the first time, welcome. I’m glad you found us. On Wednesdays, we reach way back into the archives, that’s why we call it way back Wednesday, back into the archives of old podcast episodes. We re-air them and bring them back to life. Currently, we’re going to through the old Do Over podcast episodes. That’s the original podcast that gave birth to The Epic Real Estate Investing show. I was listening to it and it was just interesting to hear what I was actually thinking, what I was saying back then. I mean, it’s been 10 years. I don’t even remember what I said back then. So, it’s a brand new episode. It’s like I’m listening to it for the very first time, just like many of you are.

When I got to the end, this is the part that I’m really going to draw your attention to, there were the five habits of billionaires. I was reading an article out of Forbes magazine and I felt the need to interject my own little commentary in between each one of those points, or each one of those habits, and God, it was just causing me to cringe because I was like shut up and just read the next one. No one wants to hear from you, we want to hear from the billionaires. On some of those, I even ridiculed some of those habits, or some of those points, from billionaires and it was just really interesting to recognize how much water has gone under the bridge. How far I’ve come, how much I’ve learned, how much I’ve developed because I’ve invested so much money into myself, my personal development, specifically around hiring coaches and getting close to people that are just smarter than me and people that are much further along than me. I’ve done that through coaches, I’ve done that through mastermind groups.

Something I’ve learned about myself is, and I think I even mentioned this just last week or two weeks ago, I caught myself slipping up again when I was meeting with my current coach. I had asked him a question, something that’s really painful right now and something that’s really ailing me, and he said well, do this, do this, do this. I caught myself. Inside my head, it was yeah, yeah, that’s good. That’s probably how you did it, but that’s not how I’m going to do it. I caught myself. I was like stop. See? You used to do that all the time. I recognized that in that episode, that we’re getting advice from billionaires on how to become a billionaire and I had the nerve to ridicule some of those points and almost make fun of them, being really snarky about them. I don’t know, it was just really interesting. Moving forward, or as far as today goes, I said well, let me reach back into a couple more of these episodes and see if there’s anything else that I can recognize a difference or recognize a growth or a maturity, or maybe I even just flat out changed my mind. Maybe I learned something since then to where I don’t believe that anymore.

Because we all grow. We all get different life experiences. We all have the ability, and we all certainly do, change our minds on certain issues. So, I wanted to play this episode. I picked this one out. It’s been a really popular episode on YouTube. I wanted to go back and see what I actually said there because it gets a lot of comments, a lot of positive and negative comments, so it’s somewhat, I guess, polarizing. I wanted to see what was so polarizing. Let me go back and listen to what I actually said. So, I will play that for you, and then after it’s over I’ll come back and comment on how I think differently or what I would say differently, or how I’ve evolved or regressed maybe even, I don’t know. Let’s see. I’m going to listen to it right now, and then I will be right back. Enjoy.

Speaker 1: It’s time for financial freedom Friday with Matt Epic Theriault.

Matt: Here’s a scenario for you. Joe recently started building his wealth in real estate, and today he holds a few cash flowing rental properties and he has $100,000 liquid to invest. How should he best use that $100,000? What should Joe do? I mean, what do you think? Well, the most important detail of this scenario is that Joe is currently in the wealth building phase of his real estate career. You see, in the building phase, you want to get control of as much real estate as possible and responsibly leverage as much as you can by using other people’s money. Other people’s money, that can mean banks, it can mean hard money, private money, the existing financing on a property or seller financing. Whatever is not coming out of your pocket, that’s what I’m talking about. You see, just because you have money doesn’t mean you have to use it to acquire the property. You know, instead of Joe using his $100,000 to buy more property, personally, I mean, I’d probably hold on to the majority of that money and use it to manage the properties that he does acquire. If you’re not going to dip into your own disposable cash, whose money are you going to use?

Well, I’ve got some ideas for you. Five of them, actually. Right now, the cheapest money available today will be through the banks. I mean, it’s pretty tough to beat the low rates they’re currently offering. If I could, I’d take as much of their money as they’d give me, and I’d take it right away. Now, if banks aren’t an option, and even if they are, at some point they will not be, I’d start looking for seller finance deals. I mean, just look on Craigslist. It’s very simple. Or, ask realtors. Every realtor you come in contact with, ask them this, do you know of any listings where the seller is willing to carryback financing? It’s a very powerful question. Now, another place to look is your friends, your family, your associates who are dissatisfied with the current returns on their investments. I mean, don’t you think Aunt Marge, who’s earning a .7% on her CD would be very interested in an 8% return? Or even 6% or 4%, for that matter. Yeah, I think she might.

Let’s not forget your own assets as a means of money. I mean, do you have any assets that are underperforming? Do you have an old 401K that you forgot about? Or an IRA? How about some gold or silver lying around? Maybe you have a couple of jet skis in the garage that doesn’t get used anymore. I mean, anything that you have of value that’s no longer serving you, or not serving you as well as it should, utilize that. Lastly, always be negotiating. I mean, your negotiating skill has an actual monetary value. You can turn your intellectual currency into actual currency. I mean, if you ask a seller a very simple question like this, what’s your bottom line? And they respond back with $10,000 less than what they originally asked for, that’s $10,000 you don’t have to leverage. Or perhaps a combination of any of the five things I just mentioned. Here’s where it gets really creative and fun. Let’s say for example, Joe goes out and he finds a single family home with an owner who’s willing to seller finance 60%. Well, if he negotiates that up to 70%, then he sells the jet skis for an additional 10%, and then Aunt Marge decides to step in and finance the remaining 20%, Joe’s now got 100% financing and control of another cash flowing property in his portfolio, doesn’t he? Yes.

And, he still has his $100,000 in the bank right? Maybe he uses a couple of grand of that to improve the place a bit and then puts, I don’t know, another $3,000 into a separate bank account for incidentals, now Joe is out of pocket just, say, $5,000 and he’s sleeping very well at night, knowing everything is taken care of. And, he’s got ownership of another property. Tomorrow, he can get up and go do it all over again. I mean, right now, if you’re building your wealth, you want to get your hands on as much property as possible, using as little of your own money as possible. Keep a good chunk of cash in the bank to back up the properties that you do acquire. I mean, you’ll rest easy knowing that your assets are covered, and you can continue to build your wealth until it’s time for phase two. That would be the preservation of the wealth that you’ve created, which is a conversation for another episode. Anyway, that’s what I would do if I were in Joe’s shoes. I don’t know, what would you do? Maybe you’d want to do the same thing, and if you do maybe you don’t know where to start.

All right, so I’ve certainly got some thoughts on this, but before I share those, if you’re really serious about your real estate investing and turning it into a part-time or a full-time business, you might want to go check out reiace.com because that’s what we do over there for people. You can head over to reiace.com and fill out a little form. We can hop on the phone, and we’ll brainstorm some ideas. If it makes sense, we’ll help you out there. If it doesn’t, that’s fine too. There’s certainly no obligation. That’s over at reiace.com.

Now, with regards to this episode, I don’t know if there’s too much I actually do disagree with. I think the point that you want to get from here, what you want to pull from here, is you want to leverage as much money as possible to build your wealth, to build your cash flow because it’s going to build at a faster rate. The use of leverage really multiplies the growth of all four profit centers of real estate. You want to use as little of your own money as possible so you can fully harness the full benefit of leverage, because leverage in the way we’re allowed to use it in real estate really isn’t available to the average person in any other typical investment or the types of investments that are available to the average person. Then, what I kind of left you hanging there as far as preservation goes, if we use leverage to build our wealth, the rule of thumb that I hold on to is to eliminate leverage to preserve. You take on the debt to build, you pay down the debt to preserve. Other than that, I think I really agree.

It’s really interesting, I thought. That video was shot a little more than six years ago, and it’s interesting that the bank’s money is still the lowest and cheapest money out there that’s available. If you got the ability to use the bank’s money, continue to do it. I don’t know how long it’ll last and how long that will be available. I certainly wouldn’t have guessed it will be available for another five or six years if you’d asked me that question back then when I recorded this. Also, seller financing, that gives you all kinds of flexibility and presents all kinds of opportunities. And friends and family. Don’t borrow money from people. Do them a favor and give them an asset that’s going to produce far greater than what their money is currently earning. Look at those old assets that are sitting around. You know, I’m getting ready to move right now and we’re doing a lot of liquidating and a lot of selling. We’re doing eBay stuff, we’re doing an estate sales. We’re just getting rid of a bunch of stuff and it’s just amazing how much junk I have. Some of it’s really nice junk. Some of it was really expensive junk.

When I refer to it as junk, it’s stuff that at one point was so important to me to go out and buy, and now it has no importance at all that I actually forgot I even had it and it’s sitting in the garage or sitting in the closet in the spare bedroom. It’s just sitting there, collecting dust, and I was like oh, look at this. I remember this. The final one was don’t underestimate the power of negotiating. That right there, a simple question, can put some money in your pocket really, really quickly. What is your bottom line? That’s a great question. Or, is that at all negotiable? That’s another great question. Is that the lowest you would take? Another great question. All of those, really good questions to ask, and frequently you put another $3,000, $5,000, $10,000 in your pocket by trimming that off the price you’re negotiating. Anyway, banks, seller financing, friends and family, your assets that you currently have, or I would say your liabilities that you currently have that you’re not using, there’s value there that you could deploy, and your skill and your ability to negotiate. All righty, so that’s all I got for you today. That was fun. I’ll see you next week on another episode of financial freedom Friday.

Transcript:

Speaker 1: What I like most about The Epic Intensive is the networking, being around like-minded individuals. Matt goes up there and shares insights on his business. That’s what where I’ve liked most.

Matt Theriault: Hey, Matt here. Everyone is talking about real estate investing, right? It sure seems so. Everybody wants to get in on the action. We all know that finding off market deals, it can be tough. It can be really tough, but what almost no one understands about real estate investing is the concept of finding truly motivated sellers, because it’s not spending more on marketing, defining these motivated sellers, that helps you buy discounted real estate. It’s setting up a really good automated lead machine that finds quality sellers around the clock.

That can happen. Even if you can’t stop trying every new strategy that you see at the REIA clubs or hear about on a podcast, as long as you’re also contacting your leads, setting appointments and making offers.

Before I forget, if you like the sound of where this is going, and you want to go deeper, you might like to attend the live three day Epic Intensive Lead Machine Workshop. It’s July 18th through the 20th. If that sounds interesting, then head on over to epicintensive.com. Get the details. That’s epicintensive.com.

All righty, now let’s get on with the show.

Speaker 2: This is Theriault Media.

Matt: Hey, thanks for listening. I’m really glad that you’re here. I’ve got a good show for you today. My good friend, Jason Capital, came on it to share his genius marketing wisdom. Just wanted to give you a little bit of a warning: Jason is a very colorful character, a really great dude. But he does drop a few F-bombs in the show, and it’s not my style to censor anybody, but just in case you’ve got some kids around, I wanted to give you that warning, all righty?

But listen to the content, and listen all the way through, because there’s some real gold in here, okay? Enjoy the show.

Hey Matt Theriault here on The Epic Real Estate Investing Show. I got a hot show for you today. We’re going to talk about high status. We’re going to see if you have it. If you want it and you don’t have it, we’re going to show you how to get it, right here on Thought Leader Thursday.

All right, so welcome. On today’s episode of Thought Leader Thursday, I am joined by founder and chairman of Capital Research International. For 11 years, he has served as coach and consultant to Fortune 500 executives, professional athletes, Navy SEALs, bestselling authors, and Hollywood luminaries. He has been recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur by former president Barack Obama.

His key to winning the game of life isn’t money, a prestigious degree, or even keeping up with the Kardashians. The latest science reveals that the key is high status, the secret sauce that has enabled the world’s most successful people to achieve the life of their dreams in no time at all. We like that.

When he was 23, he woke up one morning with only $23 to his name, coincidentally. Feeling stuck and overwhelmed, he realized that he wasn’t going to win the game of life based on what he learned at school and from his parents, but he turned it around in less than a year by applying high status techniques.

He’s now the world’s number one success trainer that shows people how to harness the cutting edge technology, take control of their own destiny, and become a person of power, influence, and remarkable achievement.

Please help me welcome to the show, Mr Jason Capital. Jason, welcome to Epic Real Estate Investing.

Jason Capital: Thank you, Matt. Great to be here. After that incredible introduction, I have a high bar to live up to now.

Matt: Yeah. That was actually, I think, maybe the longest introduction I’ve ever done here on the show, but you’ve got a lot of credits, and what you do is rather unique, so wanted to make sure I painted a really good picture and introduced you, just to let everybody know who you are.

Let’s start, all right? Jason, 23 years old with $23 to your name. You made $1 a year your whole life, right?

Jason: If I’d saved it, yeah.

Matt: Yeah, right? You turned it all around in less than a year by applying high status techniques. This is very intriguing to me. Was there something specific that you had at 23 years old with $23, or were you just a normal 23 year old?

Jason: I was not a normal 23 year old whatsoever. I played basketball my whole life, and I played in college basketball. When I was 20 years old, I stopped playing college basketball, and I was a normal college kid at Michigan State University. Hated everything traditional. Hate the nine to five is probably … The whole idea just-

Matt: This was almost a year for them, this year, wasn’t it?

Jason: Yeah. They almost made it. Yeah.

Matt: They almost made it.

Jason: Almost made it. But I’m there, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. In fact, I had a college professor who … I was a total goof off in class. I literally, I was like Ferris Bueller. I brought a newspaper to class, and I would hold it up in front of my face just to let the teacher know, “In case you couldn’t tell I wasn’t paying attention, trust me, I’m not paying attention.”

The professor pulls me aside after and is like, “Hey, you need to figure out what you want to do with your life, young man.” I’m like, “I don’t know what I want to do. I just know I don’t want to do what you do.” She’s literally says this, she goes, “Well, do you think I wanted to be a college professor?” She goes, “That’s not what I wanted to do, but I need to pay bills. I take care of people. I’m doing what I need to do. You need to do the same.” I’m like, there is no way I’m settling for this in my life.

I’d heard about these people who make money online, right? I’d looked at them. I had never gone for it, but there was this marketing seminar in Washington DC that I had a chance to go to. I’m like, “Screw it. I’m going.”

I go there, and I meet a guy who maybe you know or have heard of, his name is Craig Valentine. I meet Craig, and he takes me under his wing for whatever reason, and he guides me a little bit, and he gives me a plan. I go back to Michigan State, in my dorm room, and I build an online business, and I’m making $20,000 a month at 20 years old in the very first month I launched this thing.

I drop out. I buy a convertible. I parked the convertible next to my professor’s cars, so she can see it. We had a little discussion there, and I got the revenge out of my way.

I had this business that was making multiple six figures at 20, 21, 22. Around 23, I had moved to California, and I had gotten this card that made it legal to smoke green plants called marijuana. I had a bad habit with that. The more I smoked, the less money I made. Not that there was a correlation, but I just wasn’t focused. It was at that point that I literally had 23 bucks left to my name, because the whole business had just completely sputtered out of control. I had to move back home. I actually lived in my mom’s basement for about six months then.

So I wasn’t a normal 23 old. I had some online marketing experience. I had some understanding-

Matt: You were the online marketer that lived in your mom’s basement.

Jason: At that point, yes.

Matt: You were that guy.

Jason: Yeah.

Matt: Okay.

Jason: I was that guy, yeah. I wasn’t down there eating Cheetos, being a fat ass, but I was definitely down there. I just had to take a full inventory, like, “Jason, why the fuck did you fuck up so much, and how can you make sure it doesn’t happen again?”

There was two things I realized. One is I’m really big on this principle called Kaizen, and I’m sure you’ve heard the term before. It means constant and never-ending improvement.

Matt: Yep.

Jason: I realized that my original business had failed because I had stopped Kaizening the things in my life. I had stopped pushing my skills, my craft, my business, my relationships, my networking, just even a little inch each day. I had stopped doing that. If you’re not going forward, we know it’s cliche, but you’re going backwards. That was part of it.

The other part was I had just let my own personal habits deteriorate. Obviously with the marijuana and all the other stuff, I was hanging out with the wrong people, et cetera.

It was those two things that I had to fix, and I fixed those. In less than nine months, I became a millionaire. I was a millionaire at 24, and it’s just gone and gone and grown since then.

Matt: Right. Great. Can you think back, because I’ve never had a guest who actually said, “I saw this thing where I could make money online, so I gave it a shot.” Because I remember back, just when I started into real estate, and I got a little bit of a slow start. I got involved in this multilevel marketing company. I was building an email list on AWeber, and I noticed they had an affiliate link. I sent the affiliate link to my entire downline. I got one email back, said, “You just earned $78.” That, I don’t think I had made another dime from online for another two years, but that right there, that held me, and I said, “Yes. That was so cool.” Do you have a moment like that, where is like, “Boom. This is it.”?

Jason: Yeah. Well, so I take that plan that I got from that seminar, and I launched my ebook online. The very first day, we made $7,000. I had never held more than a hundred dollar bill in my hand, so to see seven grand come in at 20 years old was … I just remember, I got …

I drove a Jeep Liberty back then, because that’s what my parents got me, which is not the most masculine car. Let’s be honest. I’m in a Jeep Liberty, and I blast Rick Ross, and I put the windows down, and I just bumped that shit across campus, and I think I’m the richest motherfucker in the world with my seven grand.

Matt: Yeah, I get it. I think I felt pretty darn rich that day too, even though it was only 78 bucks. It just felt so good, you know? It was like a drug almost.

Tell me, what is high status? Tell me all about this, and how did you become aware of them?

Jason: The way I made my first million at 24 was my second online business, which was a dating business. I ran a little relationship and dating advice company for men. I don’t know if you know anything … Do you know anything about the pickup artist space or any [crosstalk 00:08:40]?

Matt: Yeah, I know a couple of people have got their big starts there, some of the household marketer names. Yeah.

Jason: Yeah, cool, yeah. That’s where I got my start. Most of that community, the way they taught guys to improve their skills with women was pickup lines. Say this, don’t say this, that sort of thing. It didn’t work for most guys. It worked for me, because I’m in shape.

Matt: Because you’re you.

Jason: And I’m me, yeah, right? It worked for me, and it worked for some of my friends, and it worked for some of my clients, but for most guys, it wasn’t working that well. Then when you get online, and you tell guys to say things like …

If I tell a guy in an email to say this to a girl, he has no idea how to say it. For instance, you could say to a girl, for instance, “You appear very fashionable tonight,” right? That’s a little cute line, like a little compliment. You could say that in a really flirty way that’s intriguing, or you could say that in a really, really creepy way, if you say [crosstalk 00:09:35]. Right. You could be like, “You appear very, very fashionable tonight.” She’d be like, “Who the hell is this?”

Matt: Right.

Jason: Yeah. That was a big thing. I would get emails back from clients, or people who read my newsletters or products, and it’s not working for them. I’m like, I got to get to the bottom of it. So I hold this seminar, and I invite everyone to come for free. I get several hundred guys there. I meet them in person for the first time, Matt, and I realized why the lines aren’t working. I meet them. I’m like, “Oh, it’s because you’re a loser. I get it.”

I mean that in the nicest way possible. It’s like, “Oh, because you dress like shit, you have terrible body language. You don’t know anything about how to project or vocal tonality. You can’t make eye contact. Of course no woman’s going to be attracted to you,” right? I realized this whole community had it backwards. It wasn’t about teaching them what to say, it was teaching guys how to say things, how to carry themselves in a high status way, which came down to body language, vocal tonality and eye contact. Those were the big three.

I changed my whole coaching and all the brand to focus on those three things. All of a sudden, our students are getting these incredible results that just shit on the rest of the competitors in the marketplace. That was where that concept came from.

A couple few years ago … I’ve been in a relationship for six years now. Very, very happy. I don’t go out six nights a week and pick up girls. That’s not my life anymore, so I wasn’t passionate about that business. I made the shift into personal development, and helping people live really a bad ass life. That was one concept I thought I could bring into the marketplace that no one else knew and no one else talked about, because I had this very unique background coming from the dating space.

The truth is, as you know, business is all about people. It’s all about relationships. If you’re not carrying yourself in a way that’s charismatic, or makes people want to learn more about you, or be friends with you, or introduce you to their friends or their business contacts, you’re fucked. Presenting yourself in a high status way goes a very long way.

You mentioned MLM and network marketing before. As you know, most people fail in network marketing, and a few succeed. If you look at the ones who succeed, you notice they have certain traits they all have in common, and it’s usually they’re very persuasive people. They’re very energetic, and they exhibit a lot of high status traits as well.

Matt: Yup. It really is, it’s their posture, and it’s their, I don’t know, I guess cleanliness, the way they present themselves. They just look neat and clean, and their shoulders are back, their head is high, and the chest is out. They don’t even have to be good looking to be very successful at doing that. By carrying that..

Transcript:

Speaker 1: My biggest takeaway from The Epic Intensive is to get the property under contract. I am a little bit of a perfectionist and so sometimes I’m reluctant to get the property under contract when I don’t know how all the pieces are going to fit together perfectly so having several people tell me that I just need to stop worrying about all the little details, get the property under contract, and it will all sort itself out, I needed that push. That was my main takeaway so far.

Matt Theriault: Hey rockstar, Matt here. Thanks for listening. I got a really good show for you today, but what you’re going to discover right now is a quick walkthrough on how to buy more discounted real estate through the power of a really good automated lead machine. There are a bunch of benefits to buying discounted real estate this way.

First, you’re going to identify the right property owners with the right motivation. Second, you’ll stir up an intense curiosity for those property owners and third, they’ll be triggered to act and voluntarily reach out to you, like almost an impulsive reflex. A really good automated lead machine doesn’t have to be high tech, it doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, some of the best performing automated lead machines hardly cost anything to run at all. When you come to The Epic Intensive, you’re going to notice that I focus on three levers of great automated lead machines. Find, control and profit.

As you can imagine, if you learn how to create a really good automated lead machine, you could probably buy and sell a lot of discounted real estate. Speaking of a really, really, really good automated lead machine, I want to invite you to a special event coming up, it’s The Epic Intensive Lead Machine Workshop, it’s July 18th through the 20th and at this workshop, it’s a three-day live event in Manhattan Beach, California where together, we’ll build your own automated lead machine, revealing the art of how to influence sellers and win deals, and pull back the curtain on creative deal structuring so you can maximize the ROI with every opportunity that crosses your desk.

You’ll learn the lead machine building blocks to attract better leads, the language patterns to get more sellers to accept your offers, and how to creatively finance without using your money or your credit. You can register for The Epic Intensive Lead Machine Workshop today for a small fully refundable seat deposit, but it’s really worth 100 payments of that seat deposit and here’s why. First, you’ll walk away with your very own automated lead machine that you’ll be able to bring back to your market and put to work. This is going to remove the limits to the money that you can make in real estate, and you’ll leave with a customized escape the rat race game plan. I’ll show you how to put that money that you make to work so that it works harder for you than you did for it.

Seating is limited. I don’t have to say that. It is. We sell out every time and this is going to be the last Lead Machine Workshop that we do before we change it up for next year, so go to epicintensive.com to reserve your seat and if you don’t absolutely love The Epic Intensive, your seat deposit will be completely refunded right there on the spot and you can keep all five of the bonuses that we’ll be handing out at the door. How’s that for fair? Remember, this is the last Lead Machine Workshop, July 18th through the 20th and seating is limited so again, go to epicintensive.com, reserve your seat, and I’ll see you there.

Speaker 3: This is Theriault Media. During an era where countless people, businesses, and organizations are feeling the pinch, running out of time, running out of money, losing confidence, feeling as if life is unfair, praying for another chance, and unless something is done, life is going to pass them by.

It’s yours for free at freedoover.com.

We’re here. We made it to episode 10. Thank you all for your support, the subscribership to your Do Over Podcast is climbing steadily and I’m just very, very grateful. I have a question, if you could live life to the fullest, I mean if you could really live life to the fullest, would you? I mean that’s not a trick question by the way, and here’s what I mean. Do you remember where you were when George W. Bush replaced Bill Clinton as president? Do you remember who you were with, what you were doing? Do you remember when the world was first introduced to Harry Potter? When the first Harry Potter movie came out? Do you remember where you were?

How about when the X-Box entered the gaming arena, or maybe the second generation of reality TV hit the airwaves with the likes of Fear Factor and The Amazing Race? Do you remember what you were doing? What you were thinking about? Do you remember which house you were living in or which job you were working? Do you remember when Britney Spears managed to capture her third straight year at Google’s number one search term? Gasoline was $1.46 a gallon? Enron filed chapter 11? The Russian Space Station Mir was decommissioned and fell to Earth? Apple released the iPod, do you remember where you were? What you were doing? Who you were doing it with?

Do you remember when the RIAA shut down Napster? How about when Mars Odyssey Space Craft landed on Mars? Do you remember? We actually landed on Mars. We wanted to see if life was there, remember? If you can’t really place what you were doing or who you were with or what you were doing, what you were dreaming about, what was going on in your life, that was the same year as the 9/11 attacks. We all remember where we were then, right? We all remember when we saw the planes crash into the buildings, when we saw the buildings crumble. Now you got it. You should have it now, right? You should know exactly where you were.

I want you to take a moment and stop and think, if I had asked you back then, what will you be doing 10 years from now, what would you have said? What would you have said that you’d be doing 10 years from now? Well, guess what? It’s been 10 years. Isn’t that amazing? How’d it worked out for you? Are you doing what you dreamed of doing? Do you have what you dreamed of having? Are you the person that you dreamed of becoming? Time flies, doesn’t it? I mean a decade can just pass in an instant. Are you ready for a do-over? I know there’s a lot of people out there right now, for a lot of people the last couple years have been kind of tough.

If you’re ready for a do-over, pull out a piece of paper. Pull out a piece of paper, something to write with and I want you to answer the following questions. If you don’t have a piece of paper handy, then you might want to come back and listen to this again. Go through these and just answer them in your mind depending on where you are. Maybe you’re in the car, or you’re on the treadmill, maybe you’re riding the subway, wherever it may be, but take this time to reflect and to reflect that what you might’ve done differently the last 10 years and more importantly, what you’re going to do differently the next 10.

Answer me this, I’ll start with the basic question, the first question I start off with. Do you want to live life to the fullest for the next 10 years of your life? You can write that down or just kind of say it in your mind, maybe say it out loud, okay? This is your life. Will you begin living life to the fullest today in order to create the life you want tomorrow? Are you ready to start today? There’s a saying that today is the first day of the rest of your life. It’s the first day of the next 10 years.

What will you no longer tolerate in your life from this day forward? What are you no longer going to put up with? What will you commit to from this day forward? What are you going to stand for? What is your life going to be about? What actions can you take right now to begin living life to the fullest? What you want to embrace, what you want to get really clear with, what you’ll want to really understand is the fact that the next 10 years are going to pass regardless. Whether you make the decision to begin living life to the fullest right now, or not. Whether you decide to no longer tolerate the commute to work, no longer tolerate your self-sabotage, no longer tolerate your procrastination, no longer tolerate your boss. Whatever it may be, the next 10 years are going to pass regardless, and where do you want to be when they do?

We’re already a couple of weeks into the new year. How are those New Years resolutions going? You see, you can make excuses or you can make a living, but you can’t do both and nobody is going to do it for you. This is your life, it is up to you. 2021, it’s going to be here before you know it. You’re going to look back on this day in much the same way you’re looking back on 2001 right now, and you’re going to realize what an amazing opportunity you had right now. When you look back, will you be fulfilled or will you be filled with regret? It’s up to you. It’s your decision.

You see, everything you have going on in your life right now is a culmination of all the decisions you’ve made in the last 10 years. Those are the big decisions you made. Those are the medium decisions you made, and what’s completely underestimated are the small daily decisions that you make on a daily basis. The small, little decisions over time that either adds up to a fulfilling life or they add up to a life of regret.

If I gave you the choice, would you like $1 million right now, that’s what I have in my left hand, do you want the million dollars in my left hand, or do you want the penny in my right hand that doubles every day for 30 days? I’m sure a lot of you have heard this before and you can recognize that it could possibly be a trick question and you’re right. For those of you that have heard it before, think about what you thought the first time you heard that question. Yeah, it’s a million dollars today, or it’s the penny that doubles every day for 30 days. You see, the penny after doubling every day for 30 days will equate to a little over $5 million, so you can have the million dollars now or the $5 million in 30 days.

How does that work? Well, that’s called compound interest. Albert Einstein had said that “Compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe, and it’s pretty amazing.” I think he said it’s the most, he might’ve said it’s one of the most but I think he said, “It’s the most powerful force in the universe.” It really is because it’s those simple little things over time, and a lot of people if they hadn’t known the answer to that, they instinctively might’ve gone for the $1 million because they’re looking at it, well, it’s just a penny. It’s nothing. Well, it’s not anything, it’s something. A penny is something. It’s a penny. It’s a penny that doubles every day. You want to look at the decisions that you make in life as that penny.

Well, it’s nothing, it’s just a little simple decision. No, it’s a decision. Those little simple decisions that are ignored or dismissed on a daily basis add up. It’s those little decisions that have you where you are today. It’s the little ones. These small little decisions you see, it’s easy to go to the gym. It’s easy to just go and knock out a 30-minute workout. It’s easy to go in and read a chapter of a book. It’s easy to go and just do something really nice for your spouse. It’s really easy to go and do something nice for a family member. Here’s the trap, it’s really easy not to do those things as well. Over time, those little decisions, those small little easy decisions add up and they create our lives.

Ten years have passed, 10 years have passed since George W. Bush first took office. Since we were introduced to the iPod. Who knows what’s going to happen 10 years from now. Who knows what’s going to be here 10 years from now. All we know is those 10 years are going to pass, regardless of whether we want to pay attention to our decisions or not. I want you to decide today to start living life to the fullest. The next 10 years can be the best years of your life. It’s never too late to be, do, or have what you might’ve been, done, or had. I mean all it takes is that first decision, and then start looking at those decisions on a daily basis. The small little simple decisions. First, I want you to decide.

Second, it’s going to take action. You’re going to have to follow up the decision with action. Those little decisions, they are always followed up with action actually, but now you have to choose the action to correlate with the decision. Third, I want you to monitor what’s working and what’s not. Take the feedback. Change your approach. That’s what your final step is, to keep altering that approach until you are living life to the fullest until you’ve got what you want, until you are who you want to become, until you’re doing what you want to do. You got to keep monitoring what’s working, what’s not, and keep altering your approach until you get there.

Now assuming you’ve decided to live life to the fullest, what action can you take this very moment that will launch your next decade into the right direction? What can you do this very, very second? Who can you call? What email can you shoot off? What can you go to buy? Who can you contact? What action can you do right now that is going to launch your decade into the right direction? Never ever leave the sight of a goal without first taking some sort of action toward its attainment.

It’s really, really easy to take that small simple little action right now, but because it’s really, really easy, it’s easy not to take that action right now. That’s one of those small little decisions that’s going to shape your next decade. Hopefully, that makes sense. I wanted to talk about that just as you know, we’re a couple of weeks into the new year and it doesn’t matter because I know these podcasts, they stay around forever. Once they’re on the internet, they’re never gone. You might be listening to this in June or July or maybe you’re listening to this I don’t know, four or five years from now, it’s time-honored wisdom. It doesn’t change.

Monitor those small little decisions. It doesn’t matter but I chose right now to talk about this because we’re a couple of weeks into the new year and I know you made some resolutions either I know you did this, either you made a resolution to make more money this year, or you made a resolution to lose weight, or you made a resolution to find your soulmate. It’s usually one of the three. How are you doing so far? Are you sitting around just kind of hoping it happens, or are you making those small little daily decisions..

Matt Theriault: Hey rockstar, your old buddy Matt here. Now you know that lead generation is the engine that runs a real estate investing business. If you don’t have consistent leads, you won’t have consistent opportunities, and without that, your bank account, it’s going to go up and down, up and down, just like a rollercoaster. But if you know the best sources for leads, and how to automate the flow of them, your income can be nice and steady. To a point where you can then focus more on causing your income to grow, rather than losing sleep over those money worries and concerns, that uncertainty about it in the future.

So let me show you how to avoid this feast or famine income flow in your business, to make sure your stress levels stay nicely in check. There are three things you have to do so your business doesn’t turn on you and drain your bank account dry. You’re going to want to take a look at epicintensive.com and register to join me in person for the next Epic Intensive in Manhattan Beach California. It’s the nicest beach city on the west coast by the way. This is going to be the last Lead Machine Workshop before we change it up for 2020, and seating is limited. So if you don’t get in on this one, that’ll be all she wrote. We’ll be onto the next thing next year, and right now for a limited time, you can only get access with a very special offer that I know you’re really going to appreciate at epicintensive.com.

At The Intensive, you’re going to learn the essentials of a really good automated lead machine. We’re going to work together on creating your very own, that you’ll be able to bring back to your market and put to work. In fact, we’re going to turn your weak lead generation into the strongest part of your business. Imagine what’s possible when this is true for you, but remember, access to The Epic Intensive per this special offer is only available for a limited time. When the seats are gone, they are gone. It’s California, it’s the beach, the middle of summer, bring the family, make a vacation out of it, but don’t delay. Go to epicintensive.com and register today. See what I did there, I made it rhyme.

Speaker 1: Making offers, and cashing checks, what’s new, what’s next, with Ashley Montion.

Ash Montion: Hey, this is Ash, Matt’s assistant, and you’re going to really love this episode, as Matt’s going to tell you all about business hacks for real estate investors, they’re seriously like magic. But before he gets started, I wanted to real quickly tell you about what’s new, and what’s next at Epic Real Estate. First here’s what’s new at Epic.

In-flight club, where aspiring investors go to get their first, or their next deal done using little to no money, we’re super excited to announce that two investors closed their first deals this past week, Jayron and Devin. Both investors posted pictures of their checks in our private Facebook group, one for 1,500, another one for 6,500. Super proud of you guys, keep the momentum up, we’re super excited to read about your next deal as well.

So if you’d like some help with getting your first or your next deal done, go to freerealestateinvestingcourse.com. In our Epic Pro Academy private Facebook group on follow through Friday, we had some big wins shared by our investors. Kevin, he closed on a flip this past week with $45,000 projected in profit and closed on a rental with $35,000 in equity, and that’s going to be bringing him $300 a month in cash flow. Dang Kevin, keep up the good work.

[Aboss 00:02:57], Aboss sold a duplex he bought a few years back, and he saw The Avengers, had to share that one. Good stuff there Aboss, keep on sharing. Jack and Josh, we’re always amazed by their consistency. They’re constantly posting on follow through Friday in the academy, and we’re always looking forward to reading their wins. So this past week they closed on a sale of a duplex in Fargo. They signed a purchase agreement for sale of a pre-completed flip. That got them $40,000 in profit, and they experimented with a new strategy that got them 23 showing schedule in a 24 hour period. Wow, talk about power moves, great job you guys. Keep it up, looking forward to seeing what you guys do next week.

Chris, Chris teamed up with a fellow real estate investor and put a deal under contract. Justin, Justin also put a deal under contract this past week. Congrats you guys, keep up the great work, keep on posting. Might I also add that all of these investors are REI Acers. Keep it up, and keep those wins coming in. All righty, so what’s next at Epic?

Two of Matt’s REI Ace clients, who both run very successful seven-figure virtual wholesaling businesses, have put together a course on how to do exactly what they do, and they’ve asked Matt to host it. This should be super, super exciting as neither one of these REI Ace rockstars have aspirations to be gurus. You could say it’s more of a fun project for them. So if you’d like some help with setting up your virtual wholesaling business, or improving the one you already have, go to wholesalingvirtually.com. And a little disclaimer here, dun dun dun, this course is not for beginners. With that said, all of the details on this high level virtual wholesaling course can be found at wholesalingvirtually.com. That’s what I’ve got for you guys today, see you again soon for what’s new and what’s next at Epic Real Estate. Enjoy the show.

Speaker 1: This is Theriault Media.

Matt: Hey rockstar, it’s Matt Theriault from Epic Real Estate, with some business hacks for you, and you’re going to love these, especially if you’re looking to accelerate your real estate investing progress, or you’re looking for a shortcut, or an easier way, or a shorter, faster, easier way even. I’ve got a few business hacks to share with you today that will do just that. Produce your results faster, and easier, so you can get involved and participate in more money making opportunities. Because that’s why we’re here, right? To make some money, yep.

All righty, so I’m going to give you some business hacks that are really just for real estate investors. Well not really, but these hacks are specifically just one hack in particular. It’s responsible for my success more than anything else that I can think of, and it’s so easy to duplicate, for anyone to duplicate, but so sadly so few people do it. And they’ll work in any industry, but with real estate being the lucrative people business that it is, these hacks work especially well for real estate investors. These hacks, they revolve around the idea that you’ve surely heard before. The idea that you are the average of the five people that you spend the majority of your time with, you’ve heard that?

Yes, this business hack to which I’m referring, it’s to be intentional about creating your environment, being intentional about it, and it works like this. We can all remember a time when we were kids, maybe in middle school, high school, we did something stupid just because someone else did it, or someone else encouraged us to do it. Or we felt like we might look good, or get acceptance from others by doing it. And what we call that is peer pressure, and it has a negative connotation to it, right? But what most people don’t realize is, that peer pressure works both ways. Here’s what I mean, if you hang around the bad kids, as humans, we tend to assimilate, we do bad things. If you hang around the good kids, as humans we assimilate there also and we do good things.

And just because we’re older, and we’re out of school, doesn’t mean this force disappears. We still assimilate, we’re still human. And when you’re aware of this force, you can actually use it to your advantage. You can change your environment, and you can change your world. So you see, just by the very nature of how humans tend to assimilate, changes just happen naturally by changing your environment. But more practically, when you’re intentional about this, what you’re going to find is you’re going to have different conversations with people. You’ll get different ideas, you’ll have access to different resources, and relationships that can turn those ideas into reality. You’re going to find yourself in different types of opportunities, opportunities with greater potential. Because you’re spending time with the type of people that create those opportunities, the type of people that seize those opportunities. The type of people that profit from those opportunities.

In hindsight, if I could point to just one thing that had the biggest impact on my biggest successes, it would be to the people that I was spending my time with. And the magic question that I would always ask people when conversations would come to an uncomfortable awkward silence. You know how that is, right? You run out of the small talk, well I’m going to give you that magic question that’s going to fire things right back up, all righty? So I’ve got three points as to where you can start creating a more impactful environment for yourself. We’ll go over those first, and I’ll give you that question.

So the first one is where to look, two, who to look for, three, what to do when you find them. And then I’ll give you that one question that I always ask, that when I run out of that small talk, that will fire that conversation right back up, put me on anyone’s good side, and leave a favorable lasting impression, all right?

So number one, where to look. You want to look for groups, organizations, or clubs where successful like-minded people get together. Entrepreneur groups are typically a good starting point. Real estate investor groups are an obvious one. If you have other aspirations outside of the real estate, because everybody loves real estate, like sailing, or wine tasting, or golf, or working with charities. Places where you have a genuine interest or passion for, those are really helpful. And just the good old fashion Google search is going to help you find these groups. Meetup.com, that’s another great place to find gatherings of like-minded people as well. Nationalreia.org, that’s going to lead you to a real estate investor group in your area.

So that’s where to look, now two, who to look for. Well, you want to look for the leaders of the group, like the organizers, or typically anyone that looks like they’re directing the meeting. Or anyone that’s got the mic in their hand, or anyone that others are paying a lot of attention to, you want to listen in conversations, who others are talking about, who people are bragging about or acknowledging. Because you want to find the doers, because many groups, especially these easy to find free groups, are going to have a lot of dreamers, a lot of talkers, a lot of newbies. So you want to find the people in the group that are getting things done, the doers, the action takers. And if you can’t find anybody in the ways that I just mentioned, then just start asking.

You don’t have to be undercover, or secret or anything, but you could just ask. And with that said, you’re going to meet a lot of people when you take this on. And you’ve probably heard this before, and of course, you have. And I’ve shamefully been burned by it before, and that’s don’t judge a book by its cover, because you never know, especially when you’re new to a group. You never know who you’re talking to, so don’t be a jerk, that’s a bonus business hack. Okay, so that’s number two, who to look for.

Now number three, what to do when you find them. Plain and simple, just become a person of value, do some research. What do they need, how can you get it for them? Be of service, and give, and give without any expectation of that favor being returned to you, just give for the sake of giving. Because as you do this, you’re going to start to notice that when you’re given back to in exchange for all that value that you provided, it very often will not come from the person that you gave it to, it’s going to come from somewhere else, somewhere unexpected. It just happens, good attracts good, so be good. In this environment, perhaps even above being a person of service, be a person of your word.

I mean say what you’re going to do, and do what you say, follow through. I mean this quality alone will have you stand out and above the crowd. It’s pretty remarkable how far just being normal and friendly, will get you in good crowds. So don’t be weird, is another bonus business hack, don’t be a jerk, don’t be weird.

All right, so here’s the plan. Head over to Google, search for groups that you’d like to involve yourself with. Check the dates that they meet, and then put those in your calendar. If it doesn’t get scheduled, it doesn’t get done, put them in your calendar. And before you attend, do whatever research you can on the group, and if possible the people in the group. It’s going to help to not walk in cold. And then when that date arrives go. This only works if you actually go, all right? So you got to go, and then arrive a little early, introduce yourself to the organizers, offer to help, be positive, be interested. Choose groups that you are genuinely interested in so you don’t have to fake this part, all right?

And then just listen in for the doers, listen to the conversation. If you can’t figure it out, ask, ask the organizer. Who should I know in the group, who are the movers and shakers, would you mind introducing me? Learn what you can about those people suggested, and the people that you meet, and then just watch and listen for opportunities to serve them. Relationships, they’re not built in one meeting, so you got to be patient, but you got to be consistent. So be consistent with your attendance.

And then here’s one of my favorite questions to ask, I was talking about. Someone that I would like to get closer to, and this really helps when you’re having small talk with this person, and the conversation starts coming to a close, or it reaches a moment of awkward silence, the question that fires everything right back up and then leaves a favorable lasting impression for you. I’d always ask this, “By the way, who is your ideal client, and should I come across them, what would be the best way for me to introduce them to you?” I mean you’ll see people’s faces light right up when you ask that question. You know why, because nobody asks that question. Most people are there looking to be introduced to their own potential clients. Nobody is out there looking to introduce other people to their potential clients.

And when they answer, take a mental note, and then just politely excuse yourself. Don’t force them to excuse themselves, nobody likes to do that, so do it for them. Because those two things right there are going to be the last thing that they remember about you, and they make a favorable lasting impression. So at this point, now I would know who they’re looking for, and then my radar would be turned on. I’d be looking for that person. And this is exactly how I was introduced to Robert Kiyosaki. And we created a few lessons together for his audience because of this, and then he appeared on the podcast for my audience because of this.

And it was through a chain of people where that question set everything off. I’ve got countless similar stories like that, but that was the first thing that came to mind, all righty? Oh and a great book to read for this business hack, would be the time-honored classic, Think and Grow Rich. And another one actually, How to Win Friends and Influence People. Both great people books, and essential reads for real estate investors when it comes to this business hack of being intentional about creating your environment, all righty?

Okay, one more hack, one more at places like this specifically where there’s a group of people. And this works really well if the room or the place is set-up classroom style, or a concert style, where there’s a stage up front and a bunch of chairs. So since you did some research on the group beforehand, come up with a couple of questions prepared. Have some good questions in, and sit in the front row. And then..

Speaker 1: This is Theriault Media.

Matt Theriault: Stuck in mediocrity? No, I mean, no matter what you try, you just can’t seem to escape it? Well, that’s not your fault, and I’m going to tell you why. And I’m also going to tell you how to get out of your mediocre financial rut on today’s episode of Financial Freedom Friday.

Go to school. Get good grades. Get a high-paying job. Buy a house. Max out your 401(k). And here’s the latest recommendation being piled on top of all that mediocre advice. You see, you could save 10 bucks a week every week for the rest of your life if you just cut out two lattes per week. None of that old, antiquated advice is going to make you wealthy, none of it, especially eliminating the coffee thing. I don’t know why everyone’s piling up on coffee. And I’m more than comfortable saying that this advice won’t get most people even to a comfortable middle-class status either. You know, when you consider the median income in America is $48,000, per the Census Bureau, and in their latest report, it’s also pointed out that 15.2% of Americans live below the poverty line … Now, that’s a snapshot of today.

But over a lifetime, it doesn’t get any better. As per the Department of Health and Human Services shows in their studies that 95% of today’s 65-year-olds are not prepared to retire, and that includes all demographics from all levels of income. That crappy advice to work, work, work, and save, save, save, is part of the typical mainstream, mediocre BS that you’re fed daily. This advice is everywhere. You can’t escape it. Radio personalities and TV and magazine articles, the front page of a Bloomberg and the bloggers … It’s a daily bombardment of mediocre advice streamed from mediocre people that leads 95% of the population to their 65th birthday scratching their heads, wondering what happened. With their last third of their life, that’s all they got left to make up for all the lost time following that mediocre advice.

Love or hate what I’m saying. Those are the numbers. So is the advice inadvertent, or is it by design? I mean, is there a conspiracy there somewhere? I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not. But does it really matter if there is? You see, what we know is that a very small portion of the population wins life’s financial game by following this advice, a very small portion. That’s indisputable. So if you want a different outcome than what most are getting, then you’re going to need a different strategy, one that goes beyond the mainstream betrayal of climbing the corporate ladder, stock market investing, qualified retirement plans, life-robbing frugality, and sacrifice.

So, who am I to share such information and take such a position? Well, to begin, I figured it out before it was too late, thank God. I have financial freedom, the form of freedom that very few have. And you know what? It had nothing to do with a job, a 401(k), my primary residence, or sacrificing my mocha frappuccino twice a week, nor does it have anything to do with building the fortunes of mainstream celebrity financial advisors that advocate this stuff either. Yeah, they didn’t get rich following their own advice. You see, the fact is, these common financial vehicles played no part in the freedom that I enjoy today. And most wealthy people will tell you exactly the same, that a quick trip to riches will have nothing to do with your fantastic job, your amazing retirement plan, or your three-bed, two-bath home with the white picket fence.

So, let’s get real. Here’s the deal. If you want to take control of your life and finances and get on the road to wealth, you’ve got to start a business. Yep. Part-time at first? That’s fine, but you’ve got to keep your eye on going full-time. That’s the eventual goal, and starting the type of business that you can control and leverage through systems, a business you can get excited about, where hard work will be a joy. I mean, take a bit of time here to discover this. This is an important decision because hard work will get you there, but hard work that you love, there’ll be no stopping you. And the sky is the limit because, all things being equal, the person that loves what they do will always have the edge.

So, take time to find your business. Here’s how I found my ideal business. As you can probably tell, I like statistics. And a little more than 15 years ago when I had to start live over from scratch, I looked at the data with one question in mind. What venture out there would give me the greatest chance of getting back to my former wealthy status that the music business had created for me? Yep. When the digital download replaced the music store, I lost everything. I had to begin again. Anyway, regardless of the source that I tapped into, the answer that kept coming up was the same, real estate. And it was presented to me that it was the final frontier where the average person had a legitimate shot at creating real wealth. And so I was in, put it that way. Sign me up. In fact, I doubled down on it. I chose it as an investment vehicle and a business, and I fell in love with it. And that’s why I’ve got what I’ve got today.

And if real estate investing is the business you’re considering and you’d like some help with it, meaning having my team copy and paste my business into yours and then just go ahead, and we’ll customize it just for you and your market. We’ll launch your first marketing campaign, and then we’ll train you on what to do when your phone starts ringing in the next few days. We can do all of that for you in 48 hours. But first, let’s get on the phone and brainstorm some ideas as to what will be best for you. I mean, maybe it’s not us, and that would be perfectly okay. We’d be happy to share some resources and point you in a direction that might be a better fit, or maybe it is us, and that would be great too. Let’s see.

Go over to reiace.com. You’ll see a short, little video there that explains the whole thing, and if you like what you see, fill out the form, and then we’ll go ahead. We’ll hop on the phone, and we’ll go from there. Alrighty. I’ll see you next week on another episode of Financial Freedom Friday. Take care.
