Changes on the way… what are YOU doing to work and live at a higher level? – EPISODE 68

Thanks so much for your interest and support of the Real Estate Power Hour. It’s been 68 episodes now and Mark is just getting started. He’s been thinking a lot over the past few weeks about the things you, the listeners of TREPH have been saying and asking for, and he’s got some ideas he wants to share with you today. It’s all focused around moving to a higher level, in life and in business – things that enable you to maximize your impact and truly leave a legacy on your family and on the world. So stick around to hear what Mark’s got on the front burner and find out how you can get involved on some higher levels as Mark takes this show and its impact to a higher level.

Give people an opportunity to step up to the plate.

If you’ve listened to the Real Estate Power Hour for any length of time you’ve likely heard Mark Evans say that he tells you about the blessings that have come to him, “not to impress, but to impress upon.” What he means by that is simple: He wants what’s happened in his life to be an example of what can happen in your life through smart, hard work that leverages your efforts into multiple opportunities and increases in business. One of the most important ways Mark has done that is to set a company vision that enables his employees to step up to the plate. He wants people who work for him to have the opportunity to put their skills and talents to work so that they (and the company) can move forward in ways they only hoped for. What are you doing to elevate your people, to give them opportunities to excel for themselves and for you? Mark’s got some advice for you on that front, so stick around and listen.

Many times the things that got you where you are today are the very things that are holding you back.

A great example of that principle is the fix and flip guy who put a ton of sweat equity into his projects from the beginning. He worked hard, saved cash by painting, ripping out carpet, doing some basic trim work, and learning how to put on a roof. By doing that he learned what it takes to make a flip work. He knows the business from the inside out. But if he keeps following that model he’s going to learn all too quickly that the number of flips he’s able to do is going to be limited by his own energy, time, and lack of expertise. What does he need to do? He needs to let go of the things that brought him to his present level of success so that he can move to the next level. He’s got to find and hire competent contractors who can take over those labor jobs so that he can get busy finding more flips. That’s how he moves to the next level. That’s how he builds his legacy to a greater degree. That’s just one example. Mark Evans has more for you on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour, so give it a listen.

Are you surrounding yourself with great people who up your game?

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” Mark Evans believes it’s true beyond a doubt. That’s why he spends a good deal of time and money on coaches and mentors who are able to help him move beyond his present level of expertise and skill. That might sound funny coming from a guy who’s doing millions of dollars in deals every month, but if you stop and think about it you’ll realize that it’s exactly BECAUSE of that commitment that he’s able to do that much in deals. You don’t get to the level of success Mark enjoys by accident. You invest in yourself to get there. So what are you doing to surround yourself with people who can help you grow and move your business forward? You may feel like you can’t afford it, but the reality is that you can’t afford NOT to do it. Mark’s got some advice for you along that line, on this episode.

Do you have capital you want to invest in some ongoing cash-flow properties?

Turn-key investments are a winner when it comes to cash flow. Mark Evans and his team are experts at finding properties that they can turn into revenue makers and they’ve got opportunities right now that you can get in on. If you’ve got some capital that you want to invest, Mark’s team has some multi-family units that are ready to go so that your investment could begin generating a cash flow stream from day one. If you’re interested in finding out more about great opportunities like that, connect with Mark through the contact page at www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com. You owe it to yourself and your future legacy to find out more.

The one thing you can do to take your business to the next level NOW! – Episode 67

There is no secret to moving yourself and your business to the next level. It only seems like a secret because like all business owners and entrepreneurs you get bogged down in the details and minutia of your business and can’t see the forest because of all the trees in your way. The big picture view is where the answer for your next level is. What is that answer? It’s people. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to challenge you to hire someone. Straight up, that’s the call to action from this episode. Mark wants you to add someone to your team who can help you move it to the next level and in this episode he’s going to tell you how to do it, and more importantly, why you have to do it.

 If you say you need more time, but aren’t hiring people to help you in your business, you’re wasting your breath.

 Go ahead, bemoan the amount of time you don’t have while you continue doing the very same silly little things you’ve always done. You’ll continue to get the same results (or lack of them) that you’ve been getting up until now. You’ll never get more time. Never. UNLESS you hire someone to take some of the load you’ve been carrying. That will free up some of your time so you can do more important, more strategic things to move your business to that next level. If you’re not willing to do that, not brave enough to take that chance, you’ll never, ever get more time. Listen to Mark’s advice about hiring people on this episode.

 You need to begin thinking in terms of human capitalization.

 What IS human capitalization? It’s the rate at which you capitalize on the potential of the people within your organization. Right now, you may be the only person and chances are that you’re pretty tapped out in terms of time and energy. Solopreneurs are infamous for burning the candle at both ends. When that’s the case it’s only a matter of time until the ratio between your success and your effort begins to go down. That’s because you’re running out of steam, ideas, motivation, and vision. In that case you’ve got to add some others to the system, delegate some of what you’re carrying to someone else so that the work needed is done by more people. It will give both of you breathing room and opportunity at the same time. Hear more of Mark’s thoughts on human capitalization on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

 Until you change, your outcomes cannot change.

 And the fundamental thing about you that needs to change is your mindset – in a number of areas. But let’s take this issue of adding people to your team as an example. You’ve already probably developed and even determined a mindset about adding staff to your business. If you are one of the many who have already decided that you can’t afford to hire another staff member, you’ve already limited yourself and your company from taking advantage of your most promising option. That thinking has to change. You’ve got to at least open your mind to the option of hiring someone else so that you can see the potential of what it could do for your business. Again, until you change, your outcomes cannot change. Find out more on this episode.

 Here’s Mark’s 7 day challenge…

 Hire somebody to help you with something within the next 7 days. It doesn’t have to be for a position in your business. It could be for something simple, like cleaning out your garage or washing your car. What you’ll find (if you pay attention) is that in doing so you’re going to have to learn a number of skills – evaluation, hiring skills, management of a person, clearly outlining the work to be done, etc. It’s going to give you much needed practice in the area of human capitalization that you can then take to your business and use to your advantage. Do it. Hire someone within the next 7 days. And if you do, contact Mark and let him know how it went, what you learned, and how you’re going to apply it in your business.

OUTLINE OF THIS POWERFUL EPISODE

  • [1:12] Welcome. Here’s what to expect from this episode.

How to enjoy the peaks and valleys of Real Estate Investing – EPISODE 66

How to enjoy the peaks and valleys of Real Estate Investing – EPISODE 66

Every business and every life has peaks and valleys. The peaks are the high times, the times when you’re encouraged and riding high. The valleys are those times when things are not looking as good, when you’re discouraged or frustrated, or lacking confidence. What can you do to ride those peaks and valleys with more stability and happiness, internally and as a business? That’s what Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to share with you in this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The first step to enjoying the peaks and valleys of business.

If you’re going to learn to enjoy the peaks and valleys that naturally come with owning and operating a business you’ve got to accept that the peaks and valleys exist and will continue to exist. You can’t get rid of them. There is no way to control every factor that goes into the creation of those ups and downs, but YOU can change, YOu can learn how to ride the ups and downs with confidence and courage. So accept that the peaks and valleys are going to exist and begin learning how to make the changes in yourself and in your business that will enable you to enjoy the ups and downs.

Data not dramaData not drama: Key two to navigating the peaks and valleys.

One of Mark Evan’s favorite sayings is, “Data not Drama.” He firmly believes that the data, the numbers, the facts about your business are what will give you direction. Data can give you encouragement. Data can give you optimism. Data can give you confidence. But only if you take the time to learn what the data means and how to use it effectively. In this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to show you how to use the data surrounding your business to make projections about future income and expenses, which in turn will enable you to bolster your confidence and move ahead aggressively to make those projections a reality.

Step three to enjoying the peaks and valleys: Focus on your existing investor relationships to increase your profitability.

Every investor you come in contact with and eventually do a deal with is a potential gold mine of future opportunities. But you’ve got to know how to foster that relationship and build rapport in a way that will motivate them to do more deals with you. That is one of the most important skills you can develop to increase your profitability; more than sending out more mailers and more than finding a new investor. Mark Evans knows. He’s learned the hard way that protecting and nurturing existing relationships with active, motivated investors can double or triple the bottom line. Find out more on this episode.

Educate yourself: Step four to enjoying the peaks and valleys of your investing business.

Remember, nothing is going to make the peaks and valleys go away. That’s not your goal. Your goal is to learn how to maximize your opportunities in spite of the peaks and valleys. That requires that you grow, that you learn, that you educate yourself in the ways to use the data to amplify your business efforts. Listen to this episode as Mark Evans shares more tips on how to make the most of the up and down cycle that every business experiences. He’s got lots of hard-learned lessons to share, lessons that can help you turn your business around, get it off the launch pad, or move it into a whole new level of profitability. That’s on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

If you’re not getting the results you want it’s because you’re not using this technique – EPISODE 65

2017-11-14 12:07:05 UTC 28:12
If you’re not getting the results you want it’s because you’re not using this technique – EPISODE 65

What’s the technique? It’s questions. The questions you ask yourself. You have to learn how to ask the questions of yourself that will challenge your mindset, change the way you look at the world, and enable you to step beyond the artificial barriers you’ve erected (even unknowingly) and achieve things you never dreamed possible. Mark Evans, DM, DN recorded this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour to give you the opportunity to step into his world and learn what has enabled him to close millions of dollars in real estate deals this year alone and to consistently do that over the last 19 years of his career. Listen in to find out how a $100 bill and Mark’s new training could change your life.

When it comes down to it, only YOU can change your life.

There are people all over social media and the internet who want to find fault, want to cast stones, want to criticize and critique anything that’s outside the realm of what they find comfortable or normal. That’s because they don’t have the guts to do the things that will bring them success. They’d rather sit around and criticize than do the hard work of changing, growing, and getting better. Mark sees their posts and laughs. He knows they’ll never change unless they begin to ask themselves different, smarter questions. They need to quit asking what’s wrong with the things others are doing or saying to achieve success and instead begin asking themselves why they are not willing to do what it takes to be successful themselves. Find out how YOU can take the right kind of action on this episode.

You have to become a different person to experience success you’ve never experienced.

Mark Evans knows. Over 19 years of a real estate investing career Mark’s had to continually grow in his mindset, his ability to put together teams and systems, and his knowledge of the investing arena and the potential it holds. Without making a commitment to personal growth you’re dooming yourself to stay right where you are for the foreseeable future. You can’t move beyond where you are unless you’re willing to learn how to employ the vehicles that can take you there. Mark’s ranting today. But it’s a good rant. Get an earful for yourself and a kick in the seat of your pants to get you moving, by listening to this episode.

There’s no such thing as making money without working.

Don’t misunderstand. Mark spends less than 2 hours a day doing things that have to do with his business on most days, but it’s not because he doesn’t work. The truth is that he’s worked his butt off for the last 19 years to get to the point where he doesn’t have to work. His continued growth and application of what he’s learned is what has enabled him to build the teams and systems that run his business without him, and provide him the lifestyle he enjoys today. So does he make money without working. Maybe today he does, but there was plenty of work along the way. Learn how to dispel the “money with no work” myth in your own mind by hearing Mark’s take on it in this episode.

If you are not making calls every single day, you’re missing the opportunities that can make you massively successful.

Opportunities very seldom fall in your lap. You’ve got to hustle to find them. It’s the hustle that puts you into a place where you CAN find them. Mark’s new live training, coming up in October of 2015 is his generous offer to help you learn what he’s learned about how to hustle up leads and real estate deals no matter where you live or what level of experience you have. It’s a multi-hour event that will train you to make the calls and locate the deals that will give you the income to enjoy the lifestyle you want and build the business to support it. It’s $100, just so you have some skin in the game. Get the info in this episode.

Childhood lessons could be the #1 thing holding you back – EPISODE 64

Childhood lessons could be the #1 thing holding you back – EPISODE 64

As a child our parents and other adults in our lives tell us all kinds of things, teaching us how to be safe in a world that isn’t always a safe place to be. “Dont talk to strangers.” “Don’t talk about money.” Don’t do risky things.” But the fact is that though those things serves us well as children, they could be what’s holding us back as adults. We STILL won’t talk to strangers, when it’s the very thing we HAVE to do in order to get a real estate investing business going. We still are leery of talking about finances, when that’s what successful investors to all the time. Find out Mark’s solution to these mindset mistakes on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

 

You have to work daily to get out of your own way by changing your beliefs.

It’s not that everything you believe is wrong or limiting, but there’s probably more that you’re clinging to unconsciously than you know that is holding you back from stepping into opportunities and situations that could launch your life into the stratosphere. What are the things you believe that are keeping you from making changes that you need to make? “I’m not good with people.” But you can learn to be good with people. “I’m uncomfortable bringing up financial issues.” But you can learn to be comfortable with discomfort, in fact you have to if you’re going to succeed. Listen to this episode to get a shot in the arm toward getting out of your own way.

Why calling or talking to others is an amazing investment in yourself.

It’s really pretty simple. How do you learn the things you need to learn. Very few of us are self-motivated enough to pick up a book or find a resource on our own. We learn from other people. Teachers, mentors, coaches, trainers – our culture is full of people who serve as resources to help other people move forward in a variety of areas. You’ve got to learn to see people as a resource, as a wealth of interest and knowledge that can help you grow, stretch, and move to the places you want to go. So get over your “I don’t talk to strangers” mentality and get growing.

 

Today’s assignment: Get out there and talk to strangers.

Wherever you go today, make a point of talking to people you don’t know. In the checkout line. At the restaurant. When you’re pumping your gas. People are around you all day long and the worst thing you could do is to pretend they’re not there because you are uncomfortable. Approach someone. Strike up a conversation. Ask them what they do for a living. Be kind. As you practice talking to strangers you’re going to find that it’s not so bad. In fact, you’ll discover that it’s actually a lot of fun to get outside your own little world and learn about others and the way they live life. That’s when you’ll be ready to get out there and talk about the real estate investing business and make new contacts that can propel your business. But you’ve got to start today.

Adjusting what you believe is the first step to taking control of your financial future.

Many of us grew up in blue-collar, hard-working families. It wasn’t unusual for us to hear mom or dad say, “We can’t afford it.” That was probably true in a very real sense, but has that mindset soaked into your soul so deeply that you still believe it today? Does it limit your beliefs about how much money you are capable of earning and how much you really can afford? You’ve got to break out of that mindset and a hundred more just like it so you can think of possibilities you’ve never dreamed before. That’s how you begin taking control of your future and moving into the realm of your dreams. Hear how Mark Evans suggests you go about it on this episode.

A simple strategy to make millions of dollars – step by step – EPISODE 63

A simple strategy to make millions of dollars – step by step – EPISODE 63

Real Estate Investing is not really all that complicated. It’s people who have properties that need to be sold, connecting with people who want to buy them. As you get involved in a deal like that, you’ve not only got the opportunity to make some cash for yourself, you’ve also got the chance to help those people accomplish their goals. How do you start making that happen? It’s very simple. In fact, the main tool you need to accomplish it is something you already have and simply need to learn how to use effectively. In this episode Mark announces a great deal on a course he’s creating that will walk you through the step by step process he uses to find buyers and sellers and move his business forward.

The simple power of a well-crafted phone call.

That’s what Mark’s new course is going to be teaching you. New course? That might shock you. For a very long time Mark’s said that he’s not a course guy, but a businessman. But he’s come to realize that he’s got some very practical stuff that can help you move your business forward, things he uses in his business every day, and he’s got to share it with you. Mark is in the process of creating this course right now and is eager to offer it to you for a bottom-dollar price of $100. Someday soon this course will sell for $1000 or more, but now you can get in on the ground floor. You’ll learn how to open and close calls, how to handle angry people, how to deal with objections and insults, and much more. Listen to this episode to get all the details.

Don’t be over-educated.

It’s a real danger to keep learning and keep learning to the point that you feel that you’ve got to learn even more before you can take action. But you can’t be one of those people if you want to get your real estate investing business rolling to the next level. You’ve got to take action on what you know, and learn as you go. In this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to show you how you can do that with simple phone calls. If you follow his simple system you’ve got the opportunity in your hands to make more money than ever before.

Contacting potential buyers and sellers is not “sales,” it’s service.

You’ve got to make that mindset shift if your business is going to be successful. The fear of “sales” is what keeps many people from making the calls or sending the correspondence that can get the ball rolling toward successful Real Estate Investing deals. But you’ve got to change your thinking. When you contact a prospect you’re approaching them with an offer to help. They have properties they need to sell, and you’re able to connect them with buyers. Or perhaps they have money they need to invest in cash producing opportunities, and you can connect them with the people who can use their money wisely and give them a great return. It’s really that simple, and you’re the one who can help them. Listen in as Mark walks you through the reasons you need to be reaching out to help more people, on this episode.

How you can move your real estate investing business up not just one level, but many levels.

You’ve got to come to one of Mark’s “hot seat” events. At these events you’ll be sitting across the table from a variety of real estate professionals who are all there to learn the strategies Mark uses to crank out 6 figures in income every month. You’ll learn not only from Mark, but from the lessons learned your fellow participants share, and together you’ll move your businesses forward in practical ways. This isn’t a “rah rah” session, it’s hands-on advice and tactics that you’ll implement while you are there. To be a part of one of Mark’s hot seat events, contact him at www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com

How I turned 32 cents into millions of dollars in real estate transactions – EPISODE 62

How I turned 32 cents into millions of dollars in real estate transactions – EPISODE 62

Too many real estate investors (or wanna be investors) are bemoaning the amount of work it takes to get real estate deals. They say there’s not enough inventory, not enough opportunity, but in today’s show Mark is going to share a very simple, VERY SIMPLE strategy he’s been using for years with every person who buys a property from him that has resulted in millions of dollars of additional business. It’s an example of how you have to MAKE your own opportunity, not wait for it to come around. Listen in and learn about the 32 cent secret.

Quit talking about all the difficulties and start asking “What CAN we do?”

We live in a day and age when there is so much opportunity. The advances in technology like Periscope (www.Periscope.tv) enable us to communicate with people around the world instantly with the push of a button – and that’s how Mark is sharing a ton of knowledge with people who truly want to move their business and life to the next level. It’s not a game. It’s an opportunity to advance things beyond what you dreamed possible. So ask yourself a new question: “What CAN you do?” It could change your life and it doesn’t have to cost you a ton either. Listen in to find out how Mark did that and changes his business forever.

Yes, a 32 cent investment that brings in millions in revenue.

It DOES sound like a “too good to be true” claim but it’s not. Not at all. It’s the honest truth that has set Mark Evans apart in the real estate investing industry. Why? Because it’s a bit outside the box, a bit unconventional, and it makes his customers remember him for their next transaction or deal. He’s got people coming back to him over and over because of this simple, 32 cent trick. And it’s not a trick. It’s just smart business. What is it? You’ve got to listen to find out… so click the link or the play button and get ready to be blown away by how simple it really is.

But the 32 cent strategy requires some follow up work from you.

Like anything you do in business, this approach doesn’t run itself. You’ve got to put steps in place “after the fact” to make sure it garners the kind of response it’s intended to. If you don’t, you’ll be wasting a whole lot of potential repeat transactions. You can follow up in person by the phone, via postal mail, or even through an automated email sequence that enables your customers to respond to YOU with their interest in additional deals. But you have to do SOMETHING to maximize the potential of this little beauty. As always, Mark has lots of ideas about how you could do that, so listen to the episode first chance you get.

Do you need some help with your real estate investing business?

Mark is available to help you get your business moving on a level you never dreamed (or at least only hoped). If you are actively working deals connect with Mark through the contact page on the website and he’ll get back to you to chat about how you might be able to work together, and get your business rolling to greater levels than ever. Don’t miss out. Connect with Mark today.

Why you have to get NAKED if you want full results – EPISODE 61

Mark’s new son has him all riled up. He’s got broader, bigger, more powerful goals on his mind because of the arrival of this little guy. As he holds his little boy he’s realizing the importance of legacy and sees more clearly what it really is. It’s not about the money or the success, it’s about the things that he can provide for his family to live a rich, full, meaningful life. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to challenge you with the things that are bouncing around in his head since the birth of his son, and ask you one question: “When you stand before the mirror, naked, looking at who you really are, what questions should you be asking that will drive you to the next level?”

Why you should never listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game.

Mark hears jokers around him all the time, people who are talking about this or that in the business world or in regard to the financial markets. They sound like they know what they’re talking about and certainly have big, strong opinions about things, but in the next breath they complain about having to work 40 hours a week and are thankful to be having time off. If they’re so smart when it comes to the business realm or the financial markets, why are they still working a 40 hour a week job? Why aren’t they putting their knowledge to work for themselves? The answer is simple: They’re posers. They’re not really as smart as they think. That’s why you should NEVER listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game. If you do, you’ll lose – big. Listen in to this episode as Mark Evans, DM, DN tells you what you’ve got to do to begin building that family legacy today.

The ability to build a strong legacy is not in who you listen to, it’s in the questions you ask.

When you stand naked before the mirror, just you and nobody else, you’ve got to be able to ask and answer some very serious questions. Who are you? What do you stand for? What’s the purpose of your life? Is what you have now all there is? What do you need to do in order to move to the next level, and the next level, and the level after that? If you aren’t willing to ask those questions and come up with honest, gut-level answers, you’ll never begin taking steps to build a legacy that lasts far beyond your lifetime. You’ll never see your kids move into their adult lives with freedom and confidence that you had to scrape tooth and nail to develop. It starts now. In front of that mirror. Question at a time. Find out more on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The power of your vision combined with penetrating questions is what brings about your dream.

You’ve got to start with that clear picture of what it is you’re trying to achieve. Once you knjow it, you have to ask penetrating questions: Why do you want it? Why is it important? Why is it vital that you reach it? What is the impact on your family and your future if you reach it? Get those answers clear in your head, then begin moving forward. Those answers will dictate your actions every day, they’ll push you beyond mediocre, they’ll drive you to do that little bit more when everyone else is stopping. That’s what will motivate you long term. Get that vision and the answers to those questions clear in your mind, review them every day, then get moving.

Why do people with big vision get discouraged and quit?

It’s simple. They allow someone who doesn’t “get” their vision to penetrate it. They allow themselves to listen to the criticism that comes from people who don’t see what they see and maybe never will. They let the opinions of others matter more than the future they’re trying to achieve, and it stalls them out. You’ve got to get your vision clear and stick with it over the long haul. You’ve got to learn to remove the naysayers from the place of influence they have over you. It’s in your head and in your heard that you’ve got to do those things. It’s inside you that those kinds of changes happen. Listen to Mark’s rant today to find out how you can begin taking those steps to elevate your dreams and fire your friends.

How to kill the fear of failure in real estate investing – EPISODE 60

How to kill the fear of failure in real estate investing – EPISODE 60

Do you know why you don’t push your way to the next level in your investing business?

You may not believe it’s true, but the reason is that you’re afraid. Afraid of what? Afraid of failing. There are all kinds of fear-based questions bouncing around in your head: What if the marketing campaign doesn’t work like you hope? What if the money you spend on mailers is wasted? What if you do something wrong and get no responses? What if… What if… What if… It’s the first two words to a sentence that ends in fear, and it will KILL your real estate investing business. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans is going to challenge you to quit focusing on the drama (your fears) and start focusing on the data. Once you do that, and do it consistently, you’ll be able to push your way to the next level and beyond.

You lose so that you can win.

It sounds contradictory, but think it through. Losing, or failing at something is one of the most important ways you learn. And as you learn what didn’t work, what caused the failure, what kept you from excelling – and apply those lessons, you become a winner. You don’t make the same mistakes. You improve your systems. You refine the processes you use so that your real estate investing business begins to climb through the obstacles to launch into the stratosphere. It’s the way it happens. It’s the way life is. You send out 500 mailers, and only get 10% response. That’s losing, in a sense, because it helps you refine your marketing to reach more people next time. You lose so that you can win. Find out how to turn those losses into victories on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

What if all the things you’ve been told about real estate investing are wrong?

You may be a veteran real estate investor. Fix and flips. Turnkey deals. Wholesaling. Those are the catchphrases of your past, the things that have been your bread and butter for a long time. But are you building your business to its optimal potential? Could it be that the very things you’ve learned about real estate investing have put you inside a box that you don’t even know is there? What if you could break free? What if someone could show you how to look at situations differently so that you can come to solutions rather than getting stuck in the mud? Mark Evans is here to help. In this episode he’s going to share with you why you should question what people tell you about real estate investing, and how it can set you free from a trap you may be stuck in.

Learn to think rightly about your real estate investing business

Your job is not to find more cash buyers. It’s not to build a bigger mailing list. Your job is not to get a better response rate from your list. It’s not even to find and sell properties at a profit. Your job is to build a business. When you stop thinking of what you do in terms of individual deals and start thinking about it in terms of an overall business, the fog begins to lift. You’re able to strategize, build systems, and set things in motion that will move your entire business forward, even if you do have a deal or two fall through. Listen in to this episode to see what an experienced real estate investor has to say about that simple mindset shift, and what it can do for your business.

The one event that could quadruple your investing business

That may sound like a very arrogant statement to you. It’s only arrogant if it’s not true. Mark Evans has been doing these “Hot Seat” events for a while now and he’s got the data to prove that the people who attend see their real estate investing business skyrocket after learning and applying what Mark has to share. This is not a “rah, rah” kind of event where you get pumped up but get nothing practical. Mark pulls out his own manuals and shows you step by step how his team locates investors, acquires properties, markets them to buyers, and puts deals together consistently over time. You won’t want to miss out. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get involved.

How to attract more buyers, sellers, and private investors – EPISODE 59

Strap on your seatbelt because the DM is about to unload on you. Not to hurt you, but to help you. Today’s episode is a kick in the butt to motivate you to quit making excuses and get moving on your business goals and lifestyle dreams. Now is the time. Not tomorrow. Not the next day. Not next week. Today is the day you have to make things happen. But it’s up to you to take action, to get things flowing in the right direction. As you learn how to make the most of the opportunities you have at your disposal, you’ll see your goals and dreams come true.

THE UPCOMING HOT SEAT EVENT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE

One of the many opportunities that is at your disposal is Mark’s upcoming “hot seat” event. It’s a gathering of serious, savvy, experienced investors who want to take their investing business to the next level. You could be a part of the next one and see your business goals explode as a result. The only requirements is that you are actively doing deals right now, and that you have at least $5,000 to invest in marketing and materials to apply what you’re learning at the hot seat. If you want to find out more, connect with Mark personally at http://www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com/contact .

WHY DO YOU GET UPSET WHEN DEALS FALL THROUGH?

If you’re hustling in the real estate investing world, you’re going to have deals fall through. But hey, at least you had a deal in the first place. The reason you’re upset when deals fall through is because you don’t have enough deals working. You’re too worried about the one that got away rather than letting it go and getting busy with the next opportunity. If you think there aren’t that many opportunities, then you’re not looking at things clearly. Opportunities to do real estate deals abound, you just have to know how to find them and get them rolling. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get the ball rolling to finding more investors, more cash buyers, more sellers, more of whatever you need in your real estate business.

YOU ARE NOT TOO BUSY TO DO THIS

You may think you are, but you’re not. It’s an excuse you’ve told yourself that has had a hold on you for far too long. Throw away that kind of thinking. You’ve got the same amount of time everyone else does. It’s just a matter of what you’re willing to do with your time. Are you wasting it on movies, TV, and video games? Or are you investing it in activities that can move your life and business forward. This is not about stress or pressure, it’s about purpose. Are you willing to take the time to engage with the people who need what you have to offer so that you can add value to their lives and fulfill your purpose? Take the time to learn the tools available to you – facebook, twitter, periscope, instagram, youtube – and get rolling by getting yourself in front of the people you need to achieve your goals.

THE BIGGEST REASON WHY YOU DON’T HAVE OPPORTUNITIES

The people who could help you with your real estate investing business, the ones who have cash and want to buy and sell properties, they will never know that you can help them if you don’t put yourself in front of them. If you’re not seen, you don’t exist to them. They don’t know what you can offer. So you’ve got to learn how to use and leverage the social media tools out there and maximize your opportunities. And then you do it again tomorrow. Repeat daily, putting yourself out there so that the people you need to meet have the opportunity to meet you. It’s up to you to take action.

Don’t let anybody hold you back from your dreams – EPISODE 58

Don’t let anybody hold you back from your dreams – EPISODE 58

Naysayers are everywhere. Often right in your own family. It’s not entirely bad, the people who don’t believe in your dreams the most are often doing so because they believe that they are protecting you from being unrealistic or led astray. That’s a good motive. But if you’re going to dream of a better life and leaving a legacy for your family, and if you’re truly going to put action behind your dream and move toward its fulfillment, you’re going to have to be careful who you share those dreams with. This episode of The Real Estate Power Hour is a heartfelt exhortation from the DM about you, your dreams, and what it takes to keep yourself on track.

You are the one who determines what your business will look like.

Don’t ever let other people, or society, or what’s normally done dictate to you what you can and cannot do. You are the one who needs to decide what you want your life to be, then build your business in such a way as to facilitate that kind of life. Most people live it the other way around, allowing their business or their job to dictate the kind of life they can have. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You have the opportunity to change your life, to make it what you envision it being, but you have to get moving. This episode of the Real Estate Power Hour is designed to help you think through the reasons it’s worth taking the chance so you can get started building that life.

Mark’s story is inspiring – an example to show that anything’s possible.

Mark didn’t come from a wealthy home. His parents, to this day, still make only $2500 a month between the two of them. As a freckle-faced kid Mark came across the opportunity to attend a seminar where he saw a man make some calls, talk to some sellers, and set up some deals. That was the day that Mark realized, “I can do that.” He took charge of his own destiny by learning all he could and taking action. He made mistakes. He had some failures. But all along he was learning, growing, and doing what is required to become successful at Real Estate Investing. There’s no reason you can’t do the same thing. Find out more on this episode.

It’s not about millions of dollars and crazy cars.

You can work toward those things if you want, and there’s nothing wrong with it if you do, but what really should be driving your work and business is the difference you can make in the world, and more importantly, in the lives of those you care about. You can build a legacy through the work you’re doing, leaving your family in a place of opportunity and advantage instead of a place of limited opportunities and disadvantage. But you’ve got to decide that you’re going to do it, shut off the negative voices that are throwing doubt on your dreams, and take action to make it happen. Mark’s here to cheer you on and coach you along the way. Find out how to reach out to him on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

Full-circle giving is why Mark does what he does.

That means he wants to help you and anyone else who will take his advice and put it into action. People sneer at him all the time, saying, “Yeah, if it works so well why isn’t everybody doing it?” The sad fact is that the people who say that are the ones who don’t have the guts to take a risk or two and prove it to themselves that what Mark’s saying works. They’ve got time on their hands to criticize because they aren’t taking action. He wants to give because he’s received so much, and he’s willing to help you figure out your next steps if you need his help. Listen to this episode to find out how to contact him.

Why you’ve got to play big to win big – EPISODE 57

So many people who want to move their real estate investing business to the next level are too busy worrying about losing money. That’s right – losing money. They’re penny pinchers who watch every dime to make sure they’re not spending too much. Hey, don’t misunderstand: it’s smart to be wise with your money. But a penny pinching mindset often causes people to misidentify what really IS a wise use of your money and what isn’t. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour, Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to kick your butt to help you see why you’ve got to pay to play.

Hiring the best gets you the best results.

When you’re looking to move your real estate investing business forward, you can go about it in a handful of ways. You can go the “cheap” route, hiring somebody on Fiverr.com to do a substandard job that looks bad and wastes your time and money, or you can search out the best in the business to teach you what you need to know. That’s what Mark realized when he decided he wanted to learn Periscope as a platform to expand his reach. He found the guy who has the most impact and reach through Periscope, contacted him, and asked for his rates. Mark wanted the best to teach him how to be the best. Mark’s podcast production team is another example, the guys over at www.PodcastFastTrack.com take care of his audio and show notes every week – and Mark says they’re the best in the business. Why does he hire them to do his podcast show every week? Because he realized that hiring the best yields the best results. Find out the areas where you could be moving your business forward by investing money in yourself and your business, on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

You can’t have big success if you keep playing small.

By “playing small” Mark means being more concerned about losing money than you are about making money. It means watching every dime, worried that you’re making a mistake rather than putting the money you have to work to move you forward. You don’t have to do a lot of money to do what Mark’s talking about. You do what you can with what you’ve got. But you need to realize that there are people out there who can and will help you move forward exponentially, if you’re willing to pay them to help you. The fees you have to pay to get the best help is not a cost, it’s an investment. It’s the price of admission, a qualifier that tells that high level person that you are serious, that you are a person who is ready to put yourself out there and make things happen. That’s the only way they know that they’re not wasting their time. Learn more about how to “pay to play” in this episode.

If you want to win big you have to be willing to lose big.

Notice, we didn’t say you have to lose big, we said you have to be willing to lose big. It’s being willing to take calculated risks. There are no guarantees in life, no sure-fire steps and tactics that give you 100% certainty about anything. But you can do your homework, you can find people who have done what you’re seeking to do, and you can step into their world and receive the benefit of their hard-learned lessons. But only if you’re willing to take a calculated risk. Take Mark’s “Hot Seat” events as an example. It costs you $5,000 to be a part of it and you’ve got to pay for your travel and lodging. You may think you don’t have $5,000 to spend. You may think that someone like Mark, who’s making so much money, should do an event like this for free. But realize this: If you spend $5,000 to learn how to make $500,000, you just got in on the best deal of your life. It’s not a cost, it’s an investment – and great investments like this yield great returns. Find out more about how you can be part of Mark’s upcoming “Hot Seat” event on this episode of TREPH.

Do you know why you keep dealing with “Tire Kickers?”

Maybe you don’t even realize that you are dealing with tire kickers. What’s a tire kicker? It’s a person who eats up your time with questions and a certain level of interest but is never willing to take action. They gobble up your energy and your focus and your moments with the hope of a possible deal but never come through. Mark believes that if you’re continually dealing with tire kickers, the problem is not them, the problem is you. You’re the tire kicker. You’re acting in the exact same way when it comes to taking your business to the next level. You haven’t been willing to invest in yourself or your business so you’re still playing small, on a low level where the tire kickers hang out. If you do things to move yourself into a new sphere of operations, the tire kickers go away because they can’t afford to play at that level. Quit wasting your time with tire kickers. Quit being one. Find out how on this episode.

Will your family have opportunity or difficulty when you die? – EPISODE 56

This episode comes from a very deep place in Mark’s heart. It flows out of an experience he had this past weekend, sitting with a friend who was telling about a mistake he’d made. This man thought he was providing for his family. He thought he was investing his money in the right kind of insurance. But it turns out that all that money he’s spent on life insurance over the years is gone and he’ll never get it back – when he believed just the opposite. That conversation got Mark all fired up to talk to you today about providing massive opportunity for your family so that when you die, they’ll have a legacy, not a liability. That’s on today’s edition of The Real Estate Power Hour, with Mark Evans, DM, DN.

Cash, CDs, Stock Market – the 3 areas most people put their money

Marks rolls royce phantom

Mark’s Rolls Royce Phantom

Most people are financially ignorant. It’s not that they’re stupid, they just don’t know any better. They only think of cash, Certificates of Deposit, or the stock market when they think about investing money, when in reality there are so many more ways to invest money that yield so much more return. Real estate is one of those, and it’s why Mark Evans is in the real estate investing business. He wants to make money for himself and his family, but also wants to help others get out of the limiting mindset that keeps them from building a financial legacy of their own.

Can you build a massive financial legacy for your family without exploiting others?

You bet you can. In fact, you can build that kind of legacy exactly BECAUSE YOU DON’T exploit others. That’s what Mark and his team are working to provide for their investors and clients every, single day. It goes against the common belief that people who are massively wealthy did something unsavory to get to that point. Sure, it may be true of some people but it doesn’t have to be the way that you build your legacy. There’s more recurring opportunities that come your way when you do business wisely, with integrity and care for people. In this episode Mark busts that that money-is-dirty myth wide open.

There’s no excuse for not building a legacy for your family

In this day and age you have every tool you need. The internet makes it possible for you to research and learn any topic you desire to, and you can become very knowledgeable about even the most complex financial issues in a very short matter of time. But you’ve got to take the initiative to make it happen. You’ve got to be the one to get off the couch and make things happen. And be careful too that you don’t let all the learning become an excuse for not taking action. Some people research and research and never get moving. Don’t let that happen to you. Learn and deploy. Learn and deploy. Find out how on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

Build the legacy bigger by measuring the action you take

One of the key components of growing your business bigger and maximizing your profits is to measure every action you take. It sounds very bothersome, and in some ways it is, but it’s the step that enables you to know exactly what is working and what is wasting time. Without measuring you’re just taking a stab in the dark – repeatedly. You don’t know that you know that you know that what you’re doing actually yields the results you want. So learn how to measure your work. Learn how to refine your systems and procedures based on what you learn. You’ll find your business growing exponentially as you refine the things that work and eliminate the things that don’t. Find out more on this episode.

How Virtual Real Estate Investing REALLY works – EPISODE 55

How Virtual Real Estate Investing REALLY works – EPISODE 55

Think you know about virtual investing? Think again.

There’s so much noise on the TV and internet nowadays about house flipping. You can make some money doing house flips, no question there. But is it the RIGHT KIND of money for you to be making? There’s tons of management and oversight and work you have to put into that model of real estate investing and it keeps you from being a true location independent, virtual investor. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour you’re going to hear what REAL virtual investing is and what it takes to pull it off.

Watch out for the self-proclaimed gurus of virtual investing

There are a lot of people out there flapping their gums about being a virtual investor, but they aren’t the real deal. They say you can sit on a beach somewhere smoking dope and rake in barrels of cash. It’s a bunch of bull. They might be making that kind of money, but it’s through selling you their course, not through actually doing the work of real estate investing. You see, virtual investing = a business mindset. You’ve got to be dedicated to hard work to get a virtual real estate investing business off the ground and make it successful. Mark’s been doing it for years. This episode outlines how he thinks about it.

Virtual Investing Made Easy

MARK’S BOOK – GET IT HERE

Virtual investing can and does work, if you’re dedicated to the hard work of building a team that can help you (did you get that, HELP YOU) make the business thrive. In the past 2 days Mark’s team has closed 19 deals worth well over $200,000 in gross revenue. TWO DAYS! And Mark didn’t attend one of the closings and hasn’t seen any of the properties personally. How does that happen? It’s happening because there’s a team in place and Mark is the one who’s done the work to find the right people and build the systems to make virtual investing on that scale a reality. Listen in to today’s rant from Mark to find out more.

Virtual investing can build true wealth, if you do it right

What if you really knew how to build wealth rather than just make money? What would your life and your future be like then? Chances are you DO know how, you just aren’t doing it. It takes daily action and the willingness to fail in order to succeed. It takes being willing to make mistakes in your real estate investing business so you can learn what NOT to do next time. It takes a commitment to making calls every day, learning how the process works by being in the trenches, and figuring out how to put together the systems that will keep the money machine rolling. Mark’s done it and has a lot to teach you about how YOU can do it. Listen to this episode to receive Mark’s personal invitation to contact him for that kind of advice.

What’s the best virtual real estate investing system?

In this episode Mark’s going to address what the best system is for setting up and running a virtual real estate investing business – and his answer is not going to be what you think. There are so many self-proclaimed gurus out there selling their particular system. Some of them may work in limited ways, but they all have one major, gaping hole – YOU. Every system, no matter how good it is and no matter how successful a track record it may appear to have, requires YOU to apply them day after day. You don’t need a system for that. You need a vision and personal determination to build your future now. Listen in as Mark coaches you how to avoid those types of money-wasters and get started today building your own virtual real estate investing business.

OUTLINE OF THIS POWERFUL EPISODE

  • 3 reasons Mark doesn’t do house flips.
  • A real estate investing business is just that – a business.
  • 19 deals closed in 2 days – it just happened.
  • You’re either growing or shrinking.
  • How virtual investing REALLY works.
  • What if you really knew how to produce wealth, not just money?
  • Why most people never get to the next level.
  • Stop going to seminars and webinars and start focusing on today.
  • “What is the best investing system?” may be the wrong question.
  • Why you don’t need a website to do big business in real estate.
  • We forget the mistakes we’ve made to get to the place we are.
  • Why there’s nothing wrong with working IN your business at the beginning.
  • Building your real estate investing business requires work on your part, not a new system or bank of knowledge.
  • A REAL real estate investor works hard to protect his clients and his business.

Are you being a punk? – Episode 54

Mark Evans is fresh off his big home giveaway event over the weekend of June 20th, 2015. Mark partnered with a couple of great organizations to giveaway a home, from the toothbrushes on up. He gives away a home to give back to the community and to help people who truly need a hand up when hard circumstances have hit their lives. It’s a great thing that he’s excited to do. Find out more about how the event went in this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

Coming home from the event Mark had a great conversation with a couple of guys about financial abuse. Financial abuse? What is that? It’s when the people who should be teaching you how to think rightly about money, how to earn it, how to use it, and how to invest toward the future, never teach you those things. Instead they might teach you the opposite – that people with money are evil, or that events like the one Mark just put on have some sort of angle to them, or else the person putting it on wouldn’t be doing it. Do you have financial scars? Do you know how to stop them from tearing your future apart? Find out in this episode.

If you allow yourself to remain hostage to the financial shackles that have been handed to you by your upbringing or your past, you have nobody to blame but yourself. The things that hold people back are fear, procrastination, etc. – and they all stem from the wrong financial beliefs that they’ve been given by their family or their past.

Why can’t you be an ultra successful real estate investor? Why do you have to remain where you are? You may have reasons, but there are no excuses. You can make things in your life change for the better if you will simply get started. You don’t have to figure out anything except how to begin making calls to investors, sellers, buyers, and money people, every single day. In this episode Mark’s going to lay it all out for you through his Certified Deal Maker Money Map. You don’t want to miss it.

money map

In the end, the only person who can change your life is you. Yes, you may have hit on some hard times. Yes, you may have challenges and obstacles, and difficulties. Everybody does. But you will never realize the success that is possible until you decide that you’re no longer going to wear those messed up money goggles you were handed and begin moving in a direction that will make you money, change your lifestyle, change your life, and impact the lives of countless others. You can do it. Only you can do it. Find out how to get started on this episode.

A $500,000 deal that shows what’s possible, if you’re willing to work – EPISODE 53

Here’s what you can do if you are willing to work!

Mark’s coming to you from Cleveland, OH today. He’s there to be near family as his wife prepares to give birth to their first child. It’s an exciting time personally and in his business. He’s just wrapped up an almost $500,000 deal involving multiple properties and multiple investors. It resulted in an almost $70K annual residual income for Mark. He doesn’t reveal these things to impress you, but to impress upon you that with hard work and consistency, you can create a business that will fuel your life and lifestyle long term. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark’s going to walk you through some of the details of that deal and how it came about.

Coming up June 20th, 2015, Mark will be hosting his house giveaway – this time in Columbus, Ohio. Every year Mark tries to give away a house that he’s purchased, renovated, and fully stocked – right down to the toothbrushes. These homes go to a family in need, a veteran, or someone else who comes across his radar and he’s happy to do it. This year he’s partnering with The Comeback Project Foundation and Hazel’s House to make this event bigger and better than ever. He’ll also be hosting his own birthday party at the event with food and drinks for everyone who attends. Find out more in this episode.

Mark’s sharing his latest mega-deal in this episode to impress upon you the importance of seriously getting started in your real estate investing business. People who talk, usually don’t do. Mark wants you to stop talking and start doing. Make the calls. Get your business rolling. You’re the only one stopping your forward progress. If you get going now, who knows what might be possible… even a deal like Mark just signed. You can do it but only if you get started, work hard, and put your desires into action. Find out more on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour with Mark Evans.=

In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark’s also going to share some private details of the last deal he put together that involved a conflict between himself and one of the investors. Most people would avoid the situation, avoid the conversation that needs to happen, but Mark’s advice is the exact opposite: jump right into it. You can’t be afraid of the difficult issues that come from wrong assumptions or misunderstanding in a real estate deal. You can only come to a solution if you are willing to get into it, find out the details, and get things rolling. about to change!

Things I DON’T do that skyrocket my business – EPISODE 52

Marks’ chatting with you today from Palm Beach, Florida, preparing for his annual trip to various parts of the world. Today’s episode is really about how you can better value your time by implementing things (or removing things) that can free you up to do more business in better ways.

This is a practical episode. Mark’s going to walk you through some very basic things that he DOES NOT DO because they take up precious time that he’d rather use for other things. He’s working to get away from the time-suckers, the things that turn into drama instead of data and cause you to focus on things that you can easily hand off to others.

For example: No matter how many deals you are doing every month, why in the world do you need to go to a closing? Everything is electronic today, everything can be automated. Why would you take the time to go to a closing when everything you need from that event can be taken care of without you. Mark would be on the road 20 hours every week if he went to all the closings his business does. Don’t go to closings.

You want to build your business around the goals you have set for yourself and your life. If you don’t, you’ll be doing what other people want you to do instead of what you should be doing to move your life and business forward. Don’t get bogged down in a thousand trivial things that keep you from doing that.

Make sure you do everything possible to attend Mark’s Certified Deal Maker event to learn how to ramp up your real estate investing business. The cost is only $97 and includes a ton of resources for you to take home and put in place in your real estate investing business. Part of the event is Mark’s birthday party – where he’s picking up the tab on everything! There are not packages for sale, no courses, no books – just a lot of great stuff included in your cost, just for you.

Closing the gap to accomplish more while doing less – Episode 51

Closing the gap is nothing more than follow-through and discipline.

Mark’s got some great content for you today, tips to help you accomplish more in your real estate and wealth-building business, while doing less. You’re going to learn a powerful, important thing in this episode to help you get more out of life.

The certified deal maker event

Before we get to the main content of the show, Mark wants you to know you are personally invited to his “Certified Deal Maker Event” coming up in Columbus, OH. This event is $199 per person, and is a buy-one-get-one-free type event. That means if you purchase one ticket you’ll be able to bring your spouse, your business partner, your assistant, totally free.

And you won’t be pitched while you’re there. This is really a “customer appreciation” event where Mark’s saying “thanks” by hosting a powerful, perk-laden event for you. You won’t be asked to buy any books, courses, or tools. You’ll be asked to come, learn, and enjoy. That’s it. And on top of all that you’ll get tons of gifts including software, tools and other resources to get your business going at tremendously larger levels. Get your ticket now. June 18-20, 2015.

Closing the gap

The real questions you should be asking yourself are these: What can I do to have less things on my “to do” list? How can I get them off of that list while still getting them done at a high level?

Focus on one thing and become great at it. Don’t allow hundreds of open-ended things to consume your time and energy and attention. That’s leaving hundreds of “gaps” in your business that aren’t getting closed or finished. You can’t do that and expect to be successful or profitable. You can’t be everything to everybody. You can’t do everything. You need to focus on one thing and become an expert at it, following it through to completion in every way and in every detail.

Closing the gap means actions equal results, and distractions are what keep you from taking those actions. You get your eyes off the prize when you have too many things that you’re trying to do. Closing the gap means getting things done. You find a way to get it done, which doesn’t mean you have to do it yourself. You spend 3 minutes, figure it out, and activate a plan to get it done.

Here’s what’s in this powerful audio episode

  • Learning what it means to “close the gap.”
  • The importance of focusing on one thing and becoming great at it.
  • Why closing the gap means focusing on what your highest priority is right now.
  • The reasons you must remove all distractions.
  • Focus equals success.
  • The art is in growing the business – seeing the big picture and handing off the little pieces.
  • The most important thing in your business – selling
  • How leading with value can help you close the gap
  • Your invitation to Mark’s “Certified Deal Maker Experience”
  • A story from Mark’s life that illustrates the need for closing the gap.

When momentum is in place, things roll forward, things actually happen, stuff gets done, and results are produced. Momentum creates opportunity, and opportunity creates revenue. That’s how it works… and momentum is the key.

This podcast show is a great example that Mark uses to illustrate how momentum works. He started out doing the show when he felt like it, when he got around to it, etc. But when he decided to make it a priority and put a system in place for himself and his team to get the show going, momentum began to build. He now has hundreds of people downloading every episode the first day it publishes. Momentum matters. Momentum makes all the difference.

Taking that thought into your business is a powerful thing. Momentum in your business is vital and you can create it by taking action. Don’t let down after you have a success because that’s when momentum is going. You want to keep that ball of power rolling so that you can accomplish even more Momentum is your friend. Momentum is what produces the very results you want, what will make you unstoppable.

You can create momentum in very practical ways: by making 5 more calls today than you usually do. By stepping into a few more opportunities than you feel comfortable with. By doing more marketing than you traditionally do. You want to figure out how to get more eyeballs on your deals than you usually get. You want to figure out how to get more people listening to the opportunities you have than is normal. That is what creates momentum and momentum is what creates massive opportunity that will move your business forward.

It’s not rocket science. It’s the way the world works. If you know that, you know all you need to know to get things rolling in your business. Even the big businesses like McDonalds and Apple know this truth. That’s why they continue to market. They know they’ve got to keep the momentum going or else their business will begin to decline. They know they’ve got to keep moving in order to keep thriving, growing, and making the profits that they desire.

It’s not a matter of if this will work… it’s a matter of how well it will work. That’s where you have to learn some things; how to create a powerful direct mail piece, how to talk to buyers and sellers, how to structure a deal – but before you get to any of that you’ve got to understand where it all begins. It all begins with the routine steps you take that start the momentum rolling.

Listen to this show to get the full scoop. Pay attention. Take notes. Decide what the basic steps are that you need to take in order to get the momentum rolling. Then get started.

How to kill the boogeyman of fear – Episode 49

Kill the fear. You have to do it if you’re going to be successful

In this episode, Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to give you step by step info that can help you get massive results in your financial success… and it has to do with killing fear – the boogeyman that holds you back from the level of amazing success you can have.

Mark had a huge month in March and is expecting even more in April. It’s enabled him to do some reflection and thinking about how he’s gotten to the place he’s at. There are a lot of rich people out there who you’d never expect of being rich. It’s difficult to judge a book by its cover. That should be very empowering because of the day we live in. You can make money from anywhere in the world, just like Mark does, using your knowledge, experience, and a laptop computer. Rich people don’t make their money the way they used to and they don’t live and look the way they used to. That should make you excited.

But more importantly, this episode is going to help you examine and overcome the boogeyman called “fear.” Fear can immobilize you, keep you from moving forward, bar you from stepping into great opportunities that can radically move you forward. If you don’t learn how to overcome fear, you’ll be stuck in a place where nothing will ever happen.

Here’s one tip from the episode: When you feel fearful about doing something, do it as soon as possible. That’s the only way you’re going to overcome it. You’ve got to build a pattern of stepping into fear instead of away from it or else the fear is going to control you for your entire life. It’s that pattern of stepping into fear that will set you free from the fear. Action will always decrease the feeling of fear. It’s like your first date. Once you’ve done it, you discover it wasn’t as scary, or bad, or nerve-wracking as you thought it would be.

So, strap on your seatbelt and listen to this episode if you’re ready to overcome the fear that is holding you back. Fear is like the boogeyman under your bed. You have to realize it’s not as tough as it wants you to think. You have to step into it and overcome it.

OUTLINE OF THIS EPISODE

  • Mark’s thoughts about making money in the modern age
  • Why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover (people)
  • The way to be productive in any environment, from any place
  • The questions you ask can tell you if a person is experienced or not
  • What boogeyman is under your bed or in your closet?
  • Why the boogeyman you have to overcome, is “fear”
  • It’s OK to be afraid, you just can’t let it keep you from taking action

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going – Episode 48

Mark’s here to kick you in the seat and get you moving!

Mark’s coming to you from Palm Beach, Florida today – ready to take you on the fast-track to success. And before you get into the show, Mark asks you to head over to iTunes to leave a rating and review for the podcast… and if you do so, contact Mark and let him know and he’ll send you a special gift. No joke.

The mantra for today’s show is simple, but powerful…

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

This could be your year. This could be the time for you to make your ideal life a reality. It requires one simple thing. One step. Then you repeat it. When Mark first started in the Real Estate Investing world he didn’t start out sitting on the beach in Palm Beach, Florida. He didn’t live anywhere in the world he wanted. And he didn’t do everything perfectly. In fact, he did tons of things wrong. Bestselling books with typos and grammar mistakes. Botched deals and misspoken phrases to important potential investors. He made lots of mistakes – no, he made TONS of mistakes. But he didn’t care.

WHY?

Because he knew this simple truth:

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

What does that mean? It means that you have got to get started making your dreams come true. You’ve got to quit obsessing over the potential of making mistakes. News flash: You WILL make mistakes. Get over it. It’s not that big of a deal. Everybody makes mistakes. It’s part of how you learn and grow and move toward success. In fact, every failure plants seeds for the next success. It’s part of the process of moving toward your dreams to live a different kind of life, to help people, to change the direction of your family tree and leave a legacy for those you love. But none of that will happen if you don’t get moving, if you don’t take the risks necessary to make things happen. Because…

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

You don’t have any time to waste. It would be stupid for you to wait. Why? Because you don’t know how long you’re going to be on this planet. You don’t know how much time you have left. The only difference you can make in the world and in the lives of the people you love is the difference you can make today. But you’ve got to take action. It’s those small, habitual actions that build one on top of the other and lead to success. It’s those daily steps of diligent, consistent work that put you in a place to reap the dividends down the line. Get yourself moving. Make things happen today.

It’s yours to do. It’s yours to achieve.

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

Telling your story can increase your sales! – Episode 47

Telling your story can increase your sales! – Episode 47

If you want to get more buyers, more sellers, and more private lenders… This is the episode for you.

Mark is hanging out in Florida, waiting for his parents to arrive from Columbus, Ohio for a visit. But before he heads to the beach to hang out and smoke a cigar, he’s unloading this boat-load of great information to help you get your business moving to greater heights.

Learn how to share your story in micro-pieces to pique interest

When you’re being honest, just sharing your story with people, you CAN NOT mess it up! Your story is powerful and stories move people. But you have to do it in a casual, laid back way – in micro-pieces so that you don’t overwhelm people. Twitter is a great example, you only have 140 characters. And you’re going to tell your story in specific ways with specific people – buyers, sellers, or lenders.

When you’re sharing your story, you’re creating a message to engage, to extract, and to re-engage. This episode is Mark’s thoughts on those three things.

Engage: The door opener for lasting business relationships and success

When you share your story initially, you want to do it in a way that stimulates people’s curiosity. You want to tell your story to make them want to ask you questions. You tell the story of who you are, what you do, the successes you’ve been having. You want them to wonder how you do what you do. That’s the first step, the first micro-piece of your story.

And you want to do so in a way that makes you likeable. People do business with people they like, not people who are irritating or obnoxious. The way you tell your story is important. Make sure you tell it in an appealing way.

Extract: Caring for people in a way that uncovers what they want and need

This part is about asking questions… it’s about understanding the stories of the people you’re dealing with. It’s about finding out what people need and what they want. When you do this in a simple, low-pressure, relational way, you’re going to not only find out what they need and want, you’re going to express care to them. They are going to feel like you care about them and their goals- and you should.

So ask them vital questions:

  • Could you tell me your story?
  • What are your goals in working with me?
  • What amount of passive income is it that you want each month?
  • What are the things you’re concerned about?

When you take that extra step, one that very few people bother to ask, you’ll find out things you never would have known. You’ll find out more things, more opportunities, more possibilities, and help that person see more potential than they knew existed.

You’ll also find out what kind of situation they are in. Are they a motivated seller? Then you’re going to tell them success stories, tell them how you can help them given what they’ve told you. Are they a lender or investor? Then you’re going to learn what sort of deals they’re looking for, which will help you know when to contact them about the deals you find. You’ll also be able to instruct them on how you can help.

Re-Engage: Casting the vision for what could happen

This is where you capitalize on the relationship you’re building and use the information you’ve discovered. Tell stories of your clients. Tell them how other people have succeeded. Tell them about the strategies they used. You’re educating them, giving them information about where they can find more cash to invest, how they can do it creatively and ethically. Keep in mind, it’s not about you, it’s about them. You want to let them know that you have the knowledge and experience and skills to help them, and that you are working in their best interest.

New Mindset to Grow your Real Estate Business Episode 46

New Mindset to Grow your Real Estate Business Episode 46

Quit looking for excuses. Only hard work will get you closer to success.

If Real Estate is so easy, why don’t more people do it…

Today we’re going to talk about the things that are stopping you from accomplishing your dreams. I’ve been asked a lot about why more people aren’t doing real estate, if it’s so easy. The truth is that a lot of things in life are really easy. If you want to lose weight, just eat better and exercise. It’s not hard. It just that most people don’t want to do it. Real estate is the same way. You find a buyer and find a seller. Put them together and bam!, you make money. The majority of the people who are trying to do business should just stop being soft. Quit looking for excuses. There’s nothing that’s going to get you closer to success than hard work. Stop lying to yourself.

Take stock of your weaknesses and get someone else to do those things

Take stock of who you are and what you’re good at. If you’re not a great public speaker, quit complaining about not being able to do it. If you’re not good at negotiations, get your leads and then hand the negotiations to someone else. Maximize what you are good at. Don’t waste your time trying to get better at what you suck at.

The reason I’m so good at real estate is that I took stock of what I’m good at and I do that. I can hire people to do the things I’m bad at. I can’t do paperwork. I’m no good at the day to day parts of business. Don’t waste your time doing the things you’re terrible at.

Don’t be afraid of hard work

What’s great about how I grew up is that I’m not afraid of hard work. Waking up at 4 am and working until 11 pm is the way it is. If you think you can work part time or take tons of time off and get the results I get by working really hard for a lot of hours, you’re soft. You can’t.

A lot of people say, “If this worked, why don’t more people do it.” It’s not hard, but you have to put in the work. No one cares how well you did in school, how fat or skinny you are. No one cares.

You have to go through the process of daily action to get where you’re going. Look at your results. If you’re not willing to try whatever you can, if you’re not willing to push harder, you’re soft. It doesn’t matter if you make 100k or several million. You have to be willing to make changes and try new things.

Most of the people I hang around are willing to admit what they don’t know. That’s really a strength because to do so means that you can hire people to do what you can’t.

Get comfortable with the chaos of business

I’m comfortable with the chaos of business. You have to get used to it. Sometimes you’ll have a lot of inventory. Sometimes you’ll have too many buyers. Sometimes you’ll have too many sellers. Sometimes you’ll have lots of opportunity and sometimes you won’t.

To be a leader, you just have to find people to fill in the gaps of what you’re not good at. To tell you the truth, because I’m so bad at a lot of the day to day things, if I was an employee at my own company, I’d fire me. I know what I’m bad at so I have people who fill in those gaps. I’m not good at managing people day to day, so I have someone who does that. It’s that simple.

Deals and ideas don’t matter

Deals and ideas are useless. It’s execution and implementation that makes money. People sometimes want you to sign non-competes so that you don’t take their ideas. The problem is that their ideas are useless without execution. Ideas are a dime a dozen.

Right now, the money is like water. It’s easy to come by. It wasn’t always like that. No matter the situation, people are making excuses that they can’t do it. Work hard daily. Wake up and make it happen. Don’t do things that you’re bad at. Do what you’re great at. Just keep working hard.

Have dreams so big that you’ll do what it takes

Your dreams have to be bigger than your problems. We all have problems. Deal with them. Quit being soft and making excuses. This is the common thread of “wannabe” real estate investors. It’s not that deals aren’t out there. Look in the mirror. What you see, who you see, is the problem. Don’t blame everyone else. It’s easy to get distracted. Work on execution.

If you don’t have sellers, call 20, 30, 40, 50 sellers every day. If you need buyers, call 20, 30, 40, buyers a day. You just need to grind it out. Keep working; keep trying. Don’t rely on a “push button” process to make it easy. It’s not.

Next time you talk to a seller, help them. Next time you talk to a buyer, help them. That’s your job.

What this looks like in my business

What I’m great at is “turn key investments.” I buy properties. I clean them up. I get renters in them. Then I sell them for a nice profit. That’s what I’m great at. Where most people fail is in the day to day of these investments. This is a business, so we have a team in place to create a system so that it’s easy for our customers. We have first-class service because I do everything first class and I’ve noticed that people are willing to pay more for it.

My goals are bigger than the process. The journey is more enjoyable than the destination. Look at the journey. It’s what got you there. Remember that you don’t have to get it right; you just have to get it going.

Look at your family and your business. Are you hard or soft? You can have the life that you’ve always wanted. You just can’t do it in an easy way. I can’t remember who said it, but you can get what you want if you help others get what you want. I’m just tired of people pretending that they’re getting people get what they want, but they’re not doing it.

If you’re hard, we should talk. If you have some capital to get started, we should talk. If you’re wishy washy and aren’t sure what to do next, we should talk. Just go over to TheRealEstatePowerHour.com and leave me a message and I’ll get in touch with you.

Stop Selling to Make More Sales – Episode 45

Welcome to the Real Estate Power Hour.

Stop Selling to Make More Sales - Episode 45You know I’m not techy, but some of my people are telling me that I really need to get some feedback from you on iTunes for this show. So, if you could just click here and give me a review on iTunes, that would really help me out. Please make it honest. That’s what really matters to me. As a thank you, if you’d let me know you’ve done it, I’ll send you a special video. Just head over to my contact page and tell me about your feedback (after you’ve left it) and I’ll send it your way in appreciation for you taking a minute of your life to help me out.

I’m also getting a ton of emails and feedback on the last two episodes. If you haven’t heard shows 43 and 44, with Edwin Kelly, about self-directed IRAs, please go listen to them. Learn what we’re sharing in those shows. This is powerful, life-changing information.

Learn what people want

One thing I’ve learned is that if I want to be successful, you have to learn what your prospects really want. If it’s a motivated seller, if it’s a buyer, if it’s a contractor, you have to know what they really want. Once you do this, it’s very helpful to them and ultimately to you.

One of my sales guys had a call the other day and didn’t make the sale. We record all our calls for training purposes, so I listened to it. He’s an older gentleman and he really knows what he’s doing, so we wanted to know what went wrong. I listened to the call and found that he was so focussed on what he had to offer that he didn’t take the opportunity to learn about the prospect and how he could benefit her. You’ve got to listen to what others want.

Listen a lot more than you talk

Listen 80% of the time. Educate, talk, and guide 20%. You have two ears and one mouth for a reason. When you listen to someone and take comfort in what they’re saying, they’ll take the next step. Ask questions and learn about them. You can use that information to help them. Think about how you acted when you first met your special someone. If you start talking and never let them talk, how would it have gone? Not well.

In this call, she said, “I have over 100k to invest, but have a couple of questions.” He was so concerned about making the sale that he didn’t answer her questions. As a result, neither one won. He didn’t make the sale. She didn’t get her questions answered.

Why do you think I want you to listen to shows 43 and 44 with Edwin Kelly? Only 1% of people know this stuff exists.

You don’t need to go to a seminar to learn how to get private money. Spend time getting to know people and asking questions and listening. Once you do that and educate them about the possibility of making 7, 8, 9, 10, 12% with that in a piece of real estate, that gives you an opportunity as an investor to take that money and use it together. Build up a relationship with this prospect and learn what they need and want.

I was at a program and Angela came up to me. She said, “You’re going to kill me. I’ve got over $100,000 in an old IRA.” I asked her why. She told me that she was afraid of to take action. I asked her how long it had been like this. She told me that it had been 4 years. I didn’t care whether I ever sold her a deal. I just wanted to help.

Try and help; don’t try and sell

What I was doing was trying to help. I started by talking to her about what she was doing. If people are talking about IRAs, they have money to invest. Stop looking for people and start listening. Go where the people are that are asking the questions. The easiest money in the world is made when you listen and share and educate.

My goal isn’t to sell them, but if I help them, a lot of times, they will come back to get my help. Take some time to learn about self-directed IRAs so that you can help others.

I didn’t always understand money. I learned that I should just bring people on my team who know more than me. So, I’ve developed relationships with people like Edwin who can take me farther than I can go alone.

I was on a call with a financial planner. I asked him what his biggest struggle was with his business. He told that he had a decent number of leads he needed help with. Then, we got talking about traveling. I told him about my travels and he told me about his. Not long after the call, I got a message from him saying that we’d gotten off on the right foot and that he had 35k in hand. He wanted to be the first of the clients that he sent to me. This was literally 5 minutes after I talked to him.

A lot of people say “you’ve got to sell to make money,” but I say that there are a lot of ways to make sales. Don’t misuse this. I spend a lot of time on customer experience. I think, “How can I get you a check faster? How can I get you a gift? How can I give you the best experience?”

The more you listen and help, the more people will trust you

I have clients who have done 50 something properties every year. They’ve never been to the property. They’ve never done all the things that people think they need to do. They trust that I’m trying to help them.

When you hear of something hard, that’s an opportunity to deepen the relationship

If you’re talking to a prospect and they say that they’ve had a death in the family or that something bad has happened, think of this as an opportunity to deepen the relationship. Spend $5-10 on a gift and send it to their house. If you’re really tight on money, send them a card. It takes almost no time and almost no money. Tell them you’re sorry about their loss and that you’re there to help in any way you can.

This just happened. I had a prospect who’d just lost a grandparent and their mother. I sent them a gift immediately. I didn’t want to sell them at that moment. I wanted to deepen the relationship. This isn’t a sell process. This is how I live my life.

Your opportunity to learn more

Edwin and I are about to have an opportunity for you to join us. It costs $5,000. I know that it sounds like a lot of money, but the money you can make as a result is a massive opportunity. There are some cool things that you can do as a result. It’s going to be a small room. You’re going to be there with us. Think about it. If you have one client with $100,000, that one deal could pay for this trip.

If you’re interested, I want to talk to you. Whether it’s for you or a client, there are a lot of things you can learn that will maximize your account. Don’t think you’re beneath this or above it. We’re here to learn. I’m very excited about this because I know what it can do for you.

If you have questions, go to the contact form on the site. I look at all of them. I typically reply one on one or via a show like this. I really want you to have the best results.

Can you make money tax-free?

Double your monthly retirement incomeNow, we’re moving on to protecting your wealth. There are two choices. We can pay ourselves or we can pay taxes. What does it take to pay yourself? First, open a self-directed IRA and put money into it. You can do this by either contributing from earned income, transferring from another IRA, or by doing a rollover. If you have a 401k or similar plan, you can roll it over into your self-directed IRA. Then you need to use that money to make investments.

There are three ways you make money. The first is in a taxable environment. This is how you normally make money. With an IRA, you have two other options. You can take $5,000 and subtract that from your taxable income. You get a deduction. When you make investments, you don’t pay taxes on the income within the IRA. As long as the money stays in the IRA, you don’t pay taxes on that. When you start to withdraw money, that’s when you pay taxes on it.

Here’s the way to make tax-free money

The other way is to use a Roth IRA. Instead of making a contribution and taking a tax deduction, put money in after taxes. If you do that, you don’t pay taxes on the growth OR when you withdraw it. You paid your taxes on the original $5,000, so you don’t pay taxes on the back side. This can save you huge amounts when you go to withdraw it, which you can do as long as you’re 59 ½ and the account has been open for 5 years or more.

If your IRA grows to $1,083,000 and you make 10% a year, you can withdraw $108,300 a year without affecting the principle. If you did this with a traditional IRA, that means you’d pay taxes on the money which lowers the spendable amount to about $81,000.

If you do the same thing with a Roth IRA, you get to spend all $108,300 and not pay taxes. You don’t pay federal, state, local, Social Security, or even capital gains taxes. Don’t believe me? Let’s check with the IRS. Take a look at Publication 590 and what it says about distributions from a Roth IRA. When you take title to real estate in the name of your IRA, you’re protecting future earnings from taxes.

How to access money early

You can borrow money from the IRA by the way. You can borrow up to $50,000 a year from your IRA. You have to pay interest on it. The great thing is that you’re paying interest to your IRA, so you’re paying yourself.

How to create wealth for your children using this strategy

All a person needs to open an IRA is earned income. So, take some of their income from working at McDonalds, mowing lawns, etc. and put it into a Roth IRA. Some people say, “My kids are useless. I can’t get them to do anything to earn money.”  Here’s a strategy. I pay my kids for their likenesses that I use in my presentations. That money can then go into a Roth.

Now, imagine this. If you have a baby and open up a Roth IRA for them at age 1 with $5,000 and no one touches it again (including no more contributions) until they’re 65, they’ll have over $2 million. In a traditional IRA, a large chunk of that in taxes when they withdraw it. With a Roth, it’s all tax free.

What’s really exciting about this

When you die, the assets of the Roth IRA roll over to your spouse. That means that once the husband dies, the wife will have the same income and won’t need to depend on anyone. What happens when she dies, on average, ten years later? The money goes to your heirs. Since they inherited it, the money remains tax-free, but the minimum age for distribution goes away. On average, they’ll live another 55 years. All this money is growing for a total of over 100 years. You’re able to give the life you’ve only dreamed of to your descendents. Everyone should have this type of account.

Now for some questions

What are the fees? You have a set up fee for as little as $50. Annual fees are about $400 on a $100,000 IRA. If you pay fees outside the IRA, you can deduct them. So, in effect a $400 fee is only about ⅔ that amount. You can also pay the fee within the IRA, but that’s up do you.

Can Edwin’s company set up a solo 401k? Yes they can. In fact, it’s one of his favorite account types. It offers a great deal of benefits to his his clients. You can put more money in it. You can put Roth contributions into it. You can borrow from it tax free and pay yourself the interest, firing the bank.

What about required distributions? At 70 ½, the IRS says that you have to take a minimum distribution from a traditional IRA. With a Roth, there is no required minimum distribution, so you have more flexibility.

Can you take money out and put it back within 30 days with no penalty? The IRS has what’s called a 60-day rollover. The trick is that you can only do that once a year. If you need to take more money out, you can do a loan for up to 5 years. You can pay it back early. There’s no prepayment penalty. 60-day rollovers aren’t great if something happens. If you’re less than 59 ½, you pay taxes AND a 10% penalty. If you do a 401k loan, you have 5 years, not 60 days to pay it back. Most of the time, setting up a “solo k” and borrowing from it is the way to go. If you have a traditional IRA, that can be rolled-over into a solo k.

Can you self-direct an IRA to buy a property you already own? No. That’s called self-dealing and it’s specifically prohibited by the IRS. You could sell that property and buy another with your IRA, but you can’t transfer property from yourself to your IRA.

What are minimum costs to set up a self-directed IRA? You only have to pay the set-up fees and as little as a $500 contribution. Everyone should have one. Maybe you don’t have all that cash laying around. If you have an emergency fund, you can start your Roth with it. When an emergency pops up, you can borrow from it with no taxes and no penalties.

Can money from a single-member LLC be put into a Roth? Quick reminder that this isn’t tax or legal advice. If it’s earned income, yes it can. It doesn’t matter where the money itself comes from. You just have to have earned income to do this.

Can you buy real estate in a foreign country? Yes. You can buy real estate anywhere you want.

If you have a traditional IRA, can you roll it into a Roth? Yes. You can do a conversion. The government knew that since Roths were only created in 1998 and traditional IRAs were created in 1974, people might want to go from one to another. Since you took a deduction at the time that you contributed to your IRA, you need to pay taxes on the money going into the Roth. There are conversion strategies that make this more feasible.

Show outline:

  • Now, we’re moving on to protecting your wealth. There are two choices. We can pay ourselves or we can pay taxes.
  • There are three ways you make money. The first is a taxable environment. With an IRA, you have two other options either get a deduction now and pay taxes on your distributions or pay taxes now and not pay them on your distributions.

Double your monthly retirement income with these self-directed IRA strategies – episode 43

We’re here with Edwin Kelly covering some great ways to leave a legacy for yourself and your family

Double your monthly retirement incomeWe’re going to go over a plan to pay ourselves and not the government — never pay taxes. We’re going to learn how to double your monthly retirement income.

The problems with retirement savings today

There’s a social security study on IRAs. So after 40 years, only 5 out of 100 people were economically secure in retirement. A lot of people are using outdated vehicles. What are the challenges that led to this problem? Part of the problem is taxes. If you make $100,000 this year, you could pay over $42,000 in taxes.

The other problem is investments. Some people choose safety where the principle is safe, but it doesn’t grow quickly. This is the other thing that people do. They put their money in the stock market in what’s called a mutual fund. Sometimes it goes up and sometimes it goes down, but it’s never steady. There’s no predictability.

The last problem is that people don’t know how much they’re paying. There’s an organization called the Investment Company Institute. The average fee is 5.3%. Think about how much the stock market has to go up just for you to get back to $0.

For most people, “Welcome to Walmart” is their new retirement plan. There is an alternative.

Not just an IRA, a self-directed IRA

We’re going to be talking about self-directed retirement accounts. Think of it like a Ferrari. What is the fuel you put into it? Investments. We’re going to choose investments that are consistent and reliable.

This self-directed IRA is an IRS approved vehicle that allows us to run our own investments and spend it tax free. If you could save $5,000 a year for 30 years and get 10% interest, what will that grow to? Over $991,000. What is important is that it’s predictable, secure income.

“You can’t buy real estate with your IRA! Can you?!”

A lot of people think that you just can’t do real estate inside an IRA. You’ll hear that from people like attorneys, CPAs, tax advisers, family members, or financial planners, but who makes the rules about IRAs? The IRS, well at least they enforce them. If you go to the IRS website, it tells you that plan trustees can prohibit real estate. It’s not a government prohibition.

Buy outright, leverage, or partner with IRA investments

You can do an outright purchase, leverage, or by partnering. Imagine that someone has less than $100,000. If you use money from your retirement account, all the costs must return to the IRA and all profits must be returned to the IRA. It’s taxed protected.

Imagine a couple. They could partner together and buy a property they couldn’t otherwise afford. All expenses are split in the percentage of ownership as are all profits.

There’s about $20 trillion in retirement accounts that people aren’t sure about what they should do with it. There’s a lot of ways to go about this. Each is different for the individual goals of the people involved.

A lot of people think they have self-directed IRAs. The problem is that your financial institution will say it’s “self-directed” in that you can buy any of their investments with it. If you want to buy property, rent it out and have the profits go back to the IRA, they won’t let you. A true self-directed IRA will.

Believe it or not, you can borrow money from within your IRA and pay it back from profits from within your IRA. If you have time, you can do that to buy properties that will be owned free and clear by the time you retire.

Double your the amount that you’d have with social security alone

Here’s a simple strategy to double your monthly retirement income. The average social security benefit in 2014 is around $1,300. With the traditional investments, you might get $300-400 more. Instead, if you buy two properties that pull in $700 a month each, that’s double what social security pays.

The question isn’t how much you have in the bank, but how much will come into your hands every month. If it’s a ROTH IRA, it’s all tax free, so that’s like 30-40% more spending power. A lot of people don’t understand the rules 100%. One wrong move and you could really be in trouble. They run into this risk because a lot of companies that do self-directed IRAs don’t give any guidance. That’s the big risk. You don’t know what you’re doing and your IRA trustee won’t tell you.

Show outline:

  • We’re going to go over a plan to pay ourselves and not the government — never pay taxes. We’re going to learn how to double your monthly retirement income.
  • The three problems with retirement savings today: taxes, investments, and fees.

The ONLY way to advance your business volume 10 times what it is – Podcast 42

Mark is heading off to a cruise soon – time to hang out with the family and enjoy the life he’s built.

Mark used to be so strapped to his business operation from day to day that he couldn’t get away. Hew as trapped, stuck in a job he built for himself instead of having a business that served him and created the kind of life he wanted. So, h ow can a guy with a thriving, deal-making real estate business take off as much time as Mark does?

The trick is that he’s put systems and personnel in place that allow him to get away from the administrative stuff that runs the business and enjoy the fruit that’s coming from the business.

Today on the Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to share with you how you can 10X your business. Not double. Not triple. But 10 times the volume and income so that you can do exactly what Mark does – live the life you want to live.

Here’s a clue: It’s impossible for you to 10X your business when you’re working by yourself. To double your business as an individual you simply have to work harder. That’s OK, if you have unlimited energy and time and health. But those things are not true of anyone, are they? If that’s the way it is to only double your business, what’s this talk about doing 10 times the volume and income? How is that possible?

It’s possible when you learn the power of systems, processes, and personnel. That’s the key… and that’s what Mark will be sharing with you on episode 42 of the Real Estate Power Hour. You need people (and quality people) to scale up your business. It’s the only way you can 10 times your business – and when you get the right people in place you can do 10X in business faster than you can double your business.

That means that YOU have to become a better leader. It’s leadership that makes the difference between making decent money and building wealth. Wealth is only built through building leadership – in yourself and in the competent people you put into place who run the vital systems and processes that make your business go. Mark has a COO, a sales manager, and office staff who handle everything that goes on in his business so that he can be out living his life. Mark is still involved in many ways, but the minutia of the daily operations are not his to deal with. Leadership made the difference.

And leadership means that you have to take responsibility for yourself by discovering what you stand for, what you’re all about in this world. When you find your center you will be able to clarify exactly how you are going to design and build your business. That’s how you’ll know the people you need and the systems that they need to manage.  That’s how you’ll be able to deal with the resistance that comes up against your goals. That’s the only way you can build the business and lifestyle you want. That’s what leadership is all about.

Episode 41 – 4 questions that will help you take the world by storm

Do you want to know what’s wrong with your life and business?

These 4 questions will help you discover it.

Mark has returned from a couple of mastermind groups in Las Vegas and he’s pumped to equip you to take the world by storm. It takes the right answer to the 4 questions Mark is going to cover in this episode. These are not questions you should answer immediately. Take some time. Stew over them. Then start writing down your answers.

The answers you come up with will reveal the areas where you need to make changes so that your life and business can move to the next level.

What are your blind spots? You won’t know if they’re true blind spots. That’s why you need to be involved in a mastermind group or a hot seat-type event. You’ve got to be around other people who are doing the business just like you, who can see your blind spots and point them out to you. This alone could transform your life and business.

What is your end game? Do you know? Do you have a clear picture of what it is you’re after and how you’re going to get to it? Too many people slave and work without know why. This question will reveal your why. It’s the “why” that keeps you motivated and moving forward. Find out what your end game is.

What is your legacy going to be when you leave this world? What are you going to leave behind when you die? Are you going to leave behind a solid reputation? A legacy of generosity toward your family? A business that can continue to serve others when you’re gone?

What legacy are you living right now? What do people know you for? Mark’s known as the “deal maker” (the DM after his name). What are you known for? This question will reveal to you what you are doing and what changes you should make to do even more. You want to know the answers to these so that you can move yourself ahead.

Don’t miss listening to the episode as Mark expands on each of these powerful questions and tells you what it’s going to take for you to change your answers for the better.

Episode 40 – You’ve got to conquer fear if you’re going to be a successful real estate investor

Fear will kill you and cripple your future. You’ve got to learn how to overcome it.

Mark’s hanging out in Palm Beach preparing for a trip to Las Vegas as he records this episode. He’s also working on almost 40 deals right now but he’s taking the time out to talk to you about the monster that holds back so many people – FEAR. If you don’t conquer fear in the various ways it crops up in your life, you’ll always be on the down-side of life. Fear is all about your mindset, which is something you can control.

Your mind will talk you out of things instead of talking you into things. And you’re in the real estate investing business to get “in” to things – you’re IN-vesting, not OUT-vesting. You’ve got to have the strength to overcome fear and take steps into the deals that can really move you forward.

It’s your past problems and past experiences that hold you back. You think you’ve never done it before so you won’t be able to do it this time. There’s nothing true to that at all. The past has nothing to do with the present or the future except that it will hold you back from accomplishing more than you ever have.

If you’re not doing deals, you’re not a real estate investor. You have to be putting deals together consistently, and you have to push past the fear in order to do that. The fear will do nothing but keep you from making great gains in your life and business. You’ve got to get your mind into a rapid growth stage, a place where you can see the potential instead of the problems and take action on that potential. Your mind is the only thing that is holding you back, and fear resides in your mind. When your mind expands, the minds of others around you expand. You begin to see changes in your world, not just in yourself.

Ask yourself this question: “How can I accomplish 10 years worth of business in the next 6 months?” That question will push you outside your comfort zone and get you thinking beyond the fear. You’ll have to break down that dream into practical action steps that you can implement to move forward in spite of the fear.

OUTLINE OF THIS EPISODE

  • Many deals going on, one for $3 million.
  • The importance of talking yourself INTO deals instead of OUT of deals.
  • Fear is always there, pulling you back. But you can learn to harness the feeling and move forward.
  • Everything you do is based on numbers, not feelings. Fear is a feeling you have to overcome.
  • The only thing that’s holding you back is your mind, your beliefs.
  • Mark’s invitation to the upcoming Deal-A-Thon
  • A powerful question to help you get outside the fear-zone and into the action zone.

Episode 39 – HOW TO GET MOTIVATED SELLERS POURING INTO YOUR REAL ESTATE MACHINE

Getting motivated sellers with legitimate deals coming in every day is not an easy thing.

But in this episode Mark is going to show you what should happen daily in order to get those kinds of deals flooding into your real estate business so that you can be successful every single day and live the life that you’ve always wanted.

Much of it comes through systems and Mark’s going to break down a lead generation and contact system today that will revolutionize your business. Mark talks about systems all the time and there’s a reason; they are vital to rolling your business forward in a big way.

In order to get motivated sellers with good properties into your funnel, the first question you need to ask is “How much money do you want to make?” Understanding that is where you begin to be able to understand what kind of deals you need to be doing and how many you need to be doing every week. It’s reverse engineering. Starting with your financial goal, you simply divide by 12 and find the number of motivated seller deals you need to close every month. For sake of illustration, Mark’s picking the number of a million dollars a year.

Going big time with your real estate business requires you to crunch the number so that you know the exact steps you need to take to get to that goal. It’s simple math and applied action. That’s what fills your funnel with motivated sellers. You can map out the plan for how you’re going to reach your financial goal when you know those numbers.

The next step is to break down that monthly number into a weekly number. That tells you how many leads you need to get every week, which in turn tells you how many direct response mailers you need to send out every single week, without fail. Do you see how it’s a system that fills up your real estate investment funnel? It’s math and action. Math and action. A system that makes your goal achievable in a big way through diligent daily effort.

Virtual Real Estate Investing – the real scoop – Episode 38

Mark’s kicking back with a cigar in Palm Beach, ready to give you the low-down on the reality of virtual real estate investing.

The facebook post that started it all…

A recent Facebook post drew a lot of attention when Mark commented on what makes a true “virtual investor.”

Virtual real estate investing is a new thing and Mark is one of the first people who went virtual. He’s living in Palm Beach but closing deals in other places, like Ohio. He’s able to do what he wants, where he wants, while still doing business at incredible levels just as he’s always done it. That’s what “virtual” provides. It’s the freedom you can have in your lifestyle while still doing great work that builds your business.

Everything to close a real estate deal can be done virtually, long-distance, in a way that never requires you to go to a closing or walk into a title company. It’s not that it’s a bad thing to go to a closing. Mark loves that aspect of the deal – meeting people and getting relationships to grow. But he’s not been to a closing since 2006, because he doesn’t have to and because he doesn’t need to. Mark has learned how to leverage other people and the power of a team to make his own lifestyle exactly what he wants while still making the deals happen.

Don’t misunderstand; virtual work still includes hard work. It’s not about being lazy or having nothing to do. It’s about working smarter instead of harder and creating the life you want. Mark has his business set so that it works with him or without him. There’s a team in place, a system that keeps working regardless of whether Mark is present or whether he answers his phone or not. He’s able to live spontaneously, to live the life of his dreams because he’s set up the systems and team to make it happen.

Mark’s sharing with you today because he wants you to reassess the things you’re doing to see how productive you’re really being and what you can do to make your lifestyle goals clearer and more achievable. Listen in. This is good stuff you have to understand.

3 Amateur mistakes and how to avoid them (and profit from them) – episode 37

It’s 2015 and Mark’s back with powerful Real Estate mentoring advice.

3 AMATEUR real estate mistakesOn today’s episode he’s revealing 3 of the most common amateur mistakes he sees in the business of real estate investors and teach you how to avoid them and profit from them.

PLUS, Mark’s going to teach you how to take your dreams and turn them into the kind of actions that will bring those dreams into reality. Most big dreamers work far too small. They keep everything in their own lap, unwilling to pass along vital aspects of their business to other people who can help them accelerate it into the stratosphere. Keeping it all on your own plate is too small, it’s too limiting. You can’t get high level results if you don’t work in high level ways. That means building a reliable, competent, high level team and a high level system for that team to work.

Mark’s able to do this no matter where he is in the world, no matter what’s happening in his life, and no matter what’s going on in the world. No push-button system is going to do all the real work that has to be done for your business to grow. You can’t be managing real estate all the time, you need to be managing people. It’s those people that will move your business forward.

That means you’ll have to find people to take on the specific roles you need – sales managers who can build sales teams, detail-oriented people who can handle your administration and paperwork, graphic artists who can create the copy and images that will sell your business for you. You don’t have to bring them on full time or even part time. You can start out doing it on a case-by-case business. Stop dreaming big and playing small. Take the action steps that will move your big dream forward.

Then Mark’s going to reveal the 3 amateur mistakes many real estate investors make.

  • Trying to sell instead of engaging and extracting.
  • Leaving a potential deal without a signed contract. You don’t have a chance of making any money until a contract is signed.
  • Continuing to call a potential buyer with more and more questions. Take your time to figure out all the questions and ask them all at once.

Finally, Mark’s personal invitation to the upcoming Hot Seat Event.

A no-money-down deal from Craigslist that anyone can do – details revealed – episode 36.

This information-rich episode is sure to blow your mind as Mark reveals some basic real estate investing mindsets that can propel anyone to success.

CRAIGSLIST REAL ESTATE DEALS

Mark’s had a great holiday break, spending time with family… and he’s learned a lot even when he wasn’t “working.” The time with other people has demonstrated the importance of mindset in new ways. In this episode Mark’s going to tell you how to listen to the conversation going on around you to hear the negative, victim mindsets that people have, and show you how to use that to drive you forward toward success.

As an example, Mark’s going to share the details of a new deal he’s working on; it’s less than 48 hours old. This deal came from a Craigslist ad that Mark saw. He called, talked with the guy for 45 minutes, and is putting together a deal where he’ll get paid to buy two properties, make cash from the sale of one of them, and build a duplex on the other to make even more money for himself; all with no money down. The cool thing about this deal is that anyone could do it. Seriously, you could do this deal if you knew how to think about it and had the right mindset to pull it off. It’s not that hard.

Here’s a recap of what you’ll hear in episode 36 of The Real Estate Power Hour show:

  • Mark’s last few weeks – a recap of family events and exciting business deals.
  • Marks’ word on the importance of family in a world of business responsibilities.
  • “Life is too short to be living someone else’s dream,” a quote by Hugh Hefner – with Mark’s thoughts.
  • The power of habit-based goals – not New Year’s resolutions.
  • The first step to becoming better is to discover what you absolutely suck at.
  • Your invitation to the upcoming “Hot Seat” event in Vegas, February 2-3, 2015.
  • A no-cash craigslist deal Mark’s working on that anyone could do – how it happened and how it’s going to go down.
  • How to listen to the conversations around you and use their negative examples as fuel to drive you toward success.

The Lamborghini goal setter – and how he built a thriving real estate investing business – Episode 35

400imagelamboToday Mark has a special guest to introduce to you – another Mark – Mark Ferguson, the Lamborghini goal-setter!!

Listen in as your host asks Mark some insightful questions about how he’s built his real estate business to a massive level using internet-based techniques.

But before launching into that Mark asks Mark (boy, this is going to be tricky) about a few key things that have to be in place to really scale things to another level.

FIRST – Learning when it’s time to bring on additional help to make your business run smoothly and to free yourself to do the really important things. Mark reveals how he knew when it was time to hire an assistant and how he went about passing along work to them in a systematic, patient way. He also talks a bit about using VA workers in your business for administrative tasks.

SECOND – Learning the local market where you’re working: How do you learn about the market, what role do local real estate agents play, and how do you go about working the market in an intelligent way? Those are all covered in this section of the conversation. It’s worth gold if you’ll just apply it.

Then the conversation turns to how Mark has used his website to generate massive amounts of traffic and new relationships. You can check out his site at www.InvestFourMore.com. Mark shares powerful articles that come from the trenches of his hard-learned experience and how you can apply his lessons to your business. It’s a powerful, positive, can-do blog telling you the practical things you can do to advance your business today. One of his most recent articles tells you why it’s important to get started in your investing while you’re young. Mark’s top articles to read are

How to find an investor-friendly real estate agent

How much money do Real Estate Agents make?

Buy rental properties while you’re young

How I was able to buy a Lamborghini through my real estate business

Then Mark shares why he decided to buy it as an incentive for his hard work. It’s an incredible story about setting goals and working hard to achieve them as Mark worked hard and accomplished his goal within a year. Opportunities are abundant if you are willing to set goals, work toward them, and not give up. Develop tunnel vision to get to the things you want. Mark suggests that you decide what your focus is going to be and focus on that 100%. 20% effort in a number of efforts won’t get the same results as an intense focus in one area. Get out there. Do it.

SUMMARY OF THE EPISODE

  • Introducing Mark Ferguson
  • Mark’s thoughts about working in his father’s real estate business and how it served him like handcuffs!
  • How do you know when it’s time to hire some help?
  • Learning about your market as a key to building your wholesale business.
  • Internet power for building your real estate business.
  • The first step in being successful.
  • Mark’s Lamborghini goal and how he achieved it.
  • Making your family a motivator for your business and doing right by them with your hard work.
  • Take time to work on yourself, not just your business.

How you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick – here’s episode 34!

How you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick – here’s episode 34!

Could it be true that you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick?

If you’re the person Mark describes in this episode – it’s likely you are.

It’s the week after Thanksgiving and Mark’s just returned to beautiful Palm Beach Florida and took the opportunity to fly his sister and her kids down to spend some time with Uncle Mark and his family. How can he do it? Because he’s got his business organized and on auto-pilot. The business goes on as usual, even though Mark is not hanging out in an office somewhere.

It’s an example of how you should always be learning… learning to minimize your effort and maximize your business all that the same time. In every interaction and conversation you need to be listening for what there is that you can learn and apply to your life and business. In everything you do, you should be thinking, “Is this going to get me closer to my goal or further away?” If it’s further, you don’t do it and if it’s closer, you do it.

That’s how you learn day after day.

When you learn like that, you build the confidence in yourself to go out and make your goals happen. You don’t waste the time of important people by asking them to give you a “deal” and help you get started. You learn what they have to say by listening, then you go out and apply it yourself.

It’s about working smarter, not harder.

You are killing your success, ruining relationship, and getting the short end of the stick if you’re trying to lean on the “experts,” trying to get them to help you , when you should be helping yourself by stepping up your game and applying what you learn day by day.

The main thing you learn is that you are the only one who can control you or determine your destiny. You don’t blame others for your failure. You don’t lean on others for your success. You make things happen yourself by learning, applying what you learn, and determining your destiny yourself.

Listen to the show to hear more about this topic and hear Mark’s thoughts on what smart people understand about money.

TOPICS MARK COVERS IN THIS EPISODE

  • Mark flies his sister and her kids down to FL for a visit.
  • Mark’s example of why you need to always be learning.
  • The difference between a person who is a tire-kicker and a person who is a dream maker.
  • Successful people take responsibility for their actions and their failures.
  • What smart people understand about money.
  • Buying properties for cash-flow instead of investment.
  • Take what you’re learning and consider how you can help your prospects and clients excel financially and become financially free.
  • Start elevating your buyers.
  • You are the only one who can change your life.

One step to explode your  income and reduce your stress

keep it simple

Keep it simple!

You can implement it immediately and watch your business take off.

In this episode Mark breaks down THE key to putting your business and life activities into a whole new level that will skyrocket your income and reduce your stress at the same time. The beauty of it is that you can implement this immediately.

What’s the key? Keep things simple.

Real estate investors and business people in general tend to overcomplicate things. Yes, you need systems that work. But you don’t need systems that have so many steps and so many details that it’s killing you to pull it off. If it can’t fit on one piece of paper, it’s probably over-complicated. Pare it down. Streamline it. Keep it simple, and watch your stress level go down while your profits go up.

Another simple way to ramp up your business is by elevating your business partners. When somebody agrees to do a deal with you, you work the deal, and it comes out great – don’t stop there. Talk to that person about the potential of what you could do together. Tell them you want to more deals next month, and you want them to be involved in every one. You’ll challenge them to step up their game while creating a relationship and opportunity for yourself at the same time. You don’t need another investor. You’ve just created a long-term investor out of a relationship you already have.

You can also simplify through outsourcing – a topic Mark is going to cover on a future podcast. Or you can do it my looking over the activities that are consuming your time right now and eliminating the ones that aren’t necessary. Chances are, there are a lot of those lurking in your daily work flow. Take the time. Look over your activities, and get rid of the things that are not producing the results.

Money Mindset – is yours right?

Today’s show comes to you from the insanely beautiful island paradise of Bora Bora. Really, it’s an amazingly stunning place. Here’s some photos from our visit and a video we shot while we were there.

Bora Bora Office bora bora on deck

The coaching tips you’ll receive in this episode are all about money, and your money mindset. Of course, Mark talks about money a lot on the Real Estate Power Hour show, but not like this. This is about the mindset that should exist behind your pursuit of money.

Why are you trying to gain money? What is the benefit that will come of it for you and for those around you? Do you know? Have you taken the time to answer those vital questions?

When you hear the word “money,” what emotion runs through you? Fear? Anger? Bitterness? Insecurity? Many people think that pursuing money is bad or wrong. Do you believe that? Is that part of what’s holding you back? Today Mark is going to challenge that mindset because it’s not about the money, it’s about the way that your life can be leveraged for greater benefit to your family, to charities, to those who work for you, and to those around you.

In this episode Mark challenges you to take a long hard look at your money mindset because what you think and what you understand about money dramatically impacts not only the way you deal with money but also the way you head toward financial success.

Listen in as Mark talks about the money mindset that can propel you to almost guaranteed success. He’s going to address motivation, obstacles, and new ways of thinking that will help you move ahead in your business pursuits so that you can improve the quality of your own life and the lives of the people around you.

Episode outline:

  • How do you feel when you hear the word “money?”
  • Your mindset about money will either hurt or help you and others.
  • You can develop a right money mindset to change your ability to provide for your family and bless others.
  • Asking yourself specific questions to get new results.
  • Begin thinking and dreaming bigger.
  • Learn to become specific about what will set you free financially.
  • How mindset impacts the reality of what you do in real estate investing.
  • The impact of mentoring on developing the right mindset.
  • It’s not about the money, it’s about the dream, the passion, the purpose.
  • Stop chasing the money and start helping people.
  • The journey is the fun part of the process.
  • Are you allowing other people or circumstances to limit your dreams?
  • You can change other people’s lives by reaching for your dreams.

Changes on the way… what are YOU doing to work and live at a higher level? – EPISODE 68

Thanks so much for your interest and support of the Real Estate Power Hour. It’s been 68 episodes now and Mark is just getting started. He’s been thinking a lot over the past few weeks about the things you, the listeners of TREPH have been saying and asking for, and he’s got some ideas he wants to share with you today. It’s all focused around moving to a higher level, in life and in business – things that enable you to maximize your impact and truly leave a legacy on your family and on the world. So stick around to hear what Mark’s got on the front burner and find out how you can get involved on some higher levels as Mark takes this show and its impact to a higher level.

Give people an opportunity to step up to the plate.

If you’ve listened to the Real Estate Power Hour for any length of time you’ve likely heard Mark Evans say that he tells you about the blessings that have come to him, “not to impress, but to impress upon.” What he means by that is simple: He wants what’s happened in his life to be an example of what can happen in your life through smart, hard work that leverages your efforts into multiple opportunities and increases in business. One of the most important ways Mark has done that is to set a company vision that enables his employees to step up to the plate. He wants people who work for him to have the opportunity to put their skills and talents to work so that they (and the company) can move forward in ways they only hoped for. What are you doing to elevate your people, to give them opportunities to excel for themselves and for you? Mark’s got some advice for you on that front, so stick around and listen.

Many times the things that got you where you are today are the very things that are holding you back.

A great example of that principle is the fix and flip guy who put a ton of sweat equity into his projects from the beginning. He worked hard, saved cash by painting, ripping out carpet, doing some basic trim work, and learning how to put on a roof. By doing that he learned what it takes to make a flip work. He knows the business from the inside out. But if he keeps following that model he’s going to learn all too quickly that the number of flips he’s able to do is going to be limited by his own energy, time, and lack of expertise. What does he need to do? He needs to let go of the things that brought him to his present level of success so that he can move to the next level. He’s got to find and hire competent contractors who can take over those labor jobs so that he can get busy finding more flips. That’s how he moves to the next level. That’s how he builds his legacy to a greater degree. That’s just one example. Mark Evans has more for you on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour, so give it a listen.

Are you surrounding yourself with great people who up your game?

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” Mark Evans believes it’s true beyond a doubt. That’s why he spends a good deal of time and money on coaches and mentors who are able to help him move beyond his present level of expertise and skill. That might sound funny coming from a guy who’s doing millions of dollars in deals every month, but if you stop and think about it you’ll realize that it’s exactly BECAUSE of that commitment that he’s able to do that much in deals. You don’t get to the level of success Mark enjoys by accident. You invest in yourself to get there. So what are you doing to surround yourself with people who can help you grow and move your business forward? You may feel like you can’t afford it, but the reality is that you can’t afford NOT to do it. Mark’s got some advice for you along that line, on this episode.

Do you have capital you want to invest in some ongoing cash-flow properties?

Turn-key investments are a winner when it comes to cash flow. Mark Evans and his team are experts at finding properties that they can turn into revenue makers and they’ve got opportunities right now that you can get in on. If you’ve got some capital that you want to invest, Mark’s team has some multi-family units that are ready to go so that your investment could begin generating a cash flow stream from day one. If you’re interested in finding out more about great opportunities like that, connect with Mark through the contact page at www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com. You owe it to yourself and your future legacy to find out more.

The one thing you can do to take your business to the next level NOW! – Episode 67

There is no secret to moving yourself and your business to the next level. It only seems like a secret because like all business owners and entrepreneurs you get bogged down in the details and minutia of your business and can’t see the forest because of all the trees in your way. The big picture view is where the answer for your next level is. What is that answer? It’s people. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to challenge you to hire someone. Straight up, that’s the call to action from this episode. Mark wants you to add someone to your team who can help you move it to the next level and in this episode he’s going to tell you how to do it, and more importantly, why you have to do it.

 If you say you need more time, but aren’t hiring people to help you in your business, you’re wasting your breath.

 Go ahead, bemoan the amount of time you don’t have while you continue doing the very same silly little things you’ve always done. You’ll continue to get the same results (or lack of them) that you’ve been getting up until now. You’ll never get more time. Never. UNLESS you hire someone to take some of the load you’ve been carrying. That will free up some of your time so you can do more important, more strategic things to move your business to that next level. If you’re not willing to do that, not brave enough to take that chance, you’ll never, ever get more time. Listen to Mark’s advice about hiring people on this episode.

 You need to begin thinking in terms of human capitalization.

 What IS human capitalization? It’s the rate at which you capitalize on the potential of the people within your organization. Right now, you may be the only person and chances are that you’re pretty tapped out in terms of time and energy. Solopreneurs are infamous for burning the candle at both ends. When that’s the case it’s only a matter of time until the ratio between your success and your effort begins to go down. That’s because you’re running out of steam, ideas, motivation, and vision. In that case you’ve got to add some others to the system, delegate some of what you’re carrying to someone else so that the work needed is done by more people. It will give both of you breathing room and opportunity at the same time. Hear more of Mark’s thoughts on human capitalization on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

 Until you change, your outcomes cannot change.

 And the fundamental thing about you that needs to change is your mindset – in a number of areas. But let’s take this issue of adding people to your team as an example. You’ve already probably developed and even determined a mindset about adding staff to your business. If you are one of the many who have already decided that you can’t afford to hire another staff member, you’ve already limited yourself and your company from taking advantage of your most promising option. That thinking has to change. You’ve got to at least open your mind to the option of hiring someone else so that you can see the potential of what it could do for your business. Again, until you change, your outcomes cannot change. Find out more on this episode.

 Here’s Mark’s 7 day challenge…

 Hire somebody to help you with something within the next 7 days. It doesn’t have to be for a position in your business. It could be for something simple, like cleaning out your garage or washing your car. What you’ll find (if you pay attention) is that in doing so you’re going to have to learn a number of skills – evaluation, hiring skills, management of a person, clearly outlining the work to be done, etc. It’s going to give you much needed practice in the area of human capitalization that you can then take to your business and use to your advantage. Do it. Hire someone within the next 7 days. And if you do, contact Mark and let him know how it went, what you learned, and how you’re going to apply it in your business.

OUTLINE OF THIS POWERFUL EPISODE

  • [1:12] Welcome. Here’s what to expect from this episode.
  • [1:50] Thank you for all the congratulations and gifts at the birth of Mark’s new little boy.
  • [3:18] [5:30] Begin thinking in terms of human capitalization, human resources.

How to enjoy the peaks and valleys of Real Estate Investing – EPISODE 66

2017-12-12 12:19:51 UTC 33:22
How to enjoy the peaks and valleys of Real Estate Investing – EPISODE 66

Every business and every life has peaks and valleys. The peaks are the high times, the times when you’re encouraged and riding high. The valleys are those times when things are not looking as good, when you’re discouraged or frustrated, or lacking confidence. What can you do to ride those peaks and valleys with more stability and happiness, internally and as a business? That’s what Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to share with you in this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The first step to enjoying the peaks and valleys of business.

If you’re going to learn to enjoy the peaks and valleys that naturally come with owning and operating a business you’ve got to accept that the peaks and valleys exist and will continue to exist. You can’t get rid of them. There is no way to control every factor that goes into the creation of those ups and downs, but YOU can change, YOu can learn how to ride the ups and downs with confidence and courage. So accept that the peaks and valleys are going to exist and begin learning how to make the changes in yourself and in your business that will enable you to enjoy the ups and downs.

Data not dramaData not drama: Key two to navigating the peaks and valleys.

One of Mark Evan’s favorite sayings is, “Data not Drama.” He firmly believes that the data, the numbers, the facts about your business are what will give you direction. Data can give you encouragement. Data can give you optimism. Data can give you confidence. But only if you take the time to learn what the data means and how to use it effectively. In this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to show you how to use the data surrounding your business to make projections about future income and expenses, which in turn will enable you to bolster your confidence and move ahead aggressively to make those projections a reality.

Step three to enjoying the peaks and valleys: Focus on your existing investor relationships to increase your profitability.

Every investor you come in contact with and eventually do a deal with is a potential gold mine of future opportunities. But you’ve got to know how to foster that relationship and build rapport in a way that will motivate them to do more deals with you. That is one of the most important skills you can develop to increase your profitability; more than sending out more mailers and more than finding a new investor. Mark Evans knows. He’s learned the hard way that protecting and nurturing existing relationships with active, motivated investors can double or triple the bottom line. Find out more on this episode.

Educate yourself: Step four to enjoying the peaks and valleys of your investing business.

Remember, nothing is going to make the peaks and valleys go away. That’s not your goal. Your goal is to learn how to maximize your opportunities in spite of the peaks and valleys. That requires that you grow, that you learn, that you educate yourself in the ways to use the data to amplify your business efforts. Listen to this episode as Mark Evans shares more tips on how to make the most of the up and down cycle that every business experiences. He’s got lots of hard-learned lessons to share, lessons that can help you turn your business around, get it off the launch pad, or move it into a whole new level of profitability. That’s on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

OUTLINE OF THIS POWERFUL EPISODE

  • [1:18] Could you take 2 minutes of your life to leave a genuine review on iTunes?

If you’re not getting the results you want it’s because you’re not using this technique – EPISODE 65
28:12
2017-12-12 12:19:51 UTC 28:12
If you’re not getting the results you want it’s because you’re not using this technique – EPISODE 65

What’s the technique? It’s questions. The questions you ask yourself. You have to learn how to ask the questions of yourself that will challenge your mindset, change the way you look at the world, and enable you to step beyond the artificial barriers you’ve erected (even unknowingly) and achieve things you never dreamed possible. Mark Evans, DM, DN recorded this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour to give you the opportunity to step into his world and learn what has enabled him to close millions of dollars in real estate deals this year alone and to consistently do that over the last 19 years of his career. Listen in to find out how a $100 bill and Mark’s new training could change your life.

When it comes down to it, only YOU can change your life.

There are people all over social media and the internet who want to find fault, want to cast stones, want to criticize and critique anything that’s outside the realm of what they find comfortable or normal. That’s because they don’t have the guts to do the things that will bring them success. They’d rather sit around and criticize than do the hard work of changing, growing, and getting better. Mark sees their posts and laughs. He knows they’ll never change unless they begin to ask themselves different, smarter questions. They need to quit asking what’s wrong with the things others are doing or saying to achieve success and instead begin asking themselves why they are not willing to do what it takes to be successful themselves. Find out how YOU can take the right kind of action on this episode.

You have to become a different person to experience success you’ve never experienced.

Mark Evans knows. Over 19 years of a real estate investing career Mark’s had to continually grow in his mindset, his ability to put together teams and systems, and his knowledge of the investing arena and the potential it holds. Without making a commitment to personal growth you’re dooming yourself to stay right where you are for the foreseeable future. You can’t move beyond where you are unless you’re willing to learn how to employ the vehicles that can take you there. Mark’s ranting today. But it’s a good rant. Get an earful for yourself and a kick in the seat of your pants to get you moving, by listening to this episode.

There’s no such thing as making money without working.

Don’t misunderstand. Mark spends less than 2 hours a day doing things that have to do with his business on most days, but it’s not because he doesn’t work. The truth is that he’s worked his butt off for the last 19 years to get to the point where he doesn’t have to work. His continued growth and application of what he’s learned is what has enabled him to build the teams and systems that run his business without him, and provide him the lifestyle he enjoys today. So does he make money without working. Maybe today he does, but there was plenty of work along the way. Learn how to dispel the “money with no work” myth in your own mind by hearing Mark’s take on it in this episode.

If you are not making calls every single day, you’re missing the opportunities that can make you massively successful.

Opportunities very seldom fall in your lap. You’ve got to hustle to find them. It’s the hustle that puts you into a place where you CAN find them. Mark’s new live training, coming up in October of 2015 is his generous offer to help you learn what he’s learned about how to hustle up leads and real estate deals no matter where you live or what level of experience you have. It’s a multi-hour event that will train you to make the calls and locate the deals that will give you the income to enjoy the lifestyle you want and build the business to support it. It’s $100, just so you have some skin in the game. Get the info in this episode.

Childhood lessons could be the #1 thing holding you back – EPISODE 64

Childhood lessons could be the #1 thing holding you back – EPISODE 64

As a child our parents and other adults in our lives tell us all kinds of things, teaching us how to be safe in a world that isn’t always a safe place to be. “Dont talk to strangers.” “Don’t talk about money.” Don’t do risky things.” But the fact is that though those things serves us well as children, they could be what’s holding us back as adults. We STILL won’t talk to strangers, when it’s the very thing we HAVE to do in order to get a real estate investing business going. We still are leery of talking about finances, when that’s what successful investors to all the time. Find out Mark’s solution to these mindset mistakes on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

 

You have to work daily to get out of your own way by changing your beliefs.

It’s not that everything you believe is wrong or limiting, but there’s probably more that you’re clinging to unconsciously than you know that is holding you back from stepping into opportunities and situations that could launch your life into the stratosphere. What are the things you believe that are keeping you from making changes that you need to make? “I’m not good with people.” But you can learn to be good with people. “I’m uncomfortable bringing up financial issues.” But you can learn to be comfortable with discomfort, in fact you have to if you’re going to succeed. Listen to this episode to get a shot in the arm toward getting out of your own way.

Why calling or talking to others is an amazing investment in yourself.

It’s really pretty simple. How do you learn the things you need to learn. Very few of us are self-motivated enough to pick up a book or find a resource on our own. We learn from other people. Teachers, mentors, coaches, trainers – our culture is full of people who serve as resources to help other people move forward in a variety of areas. You’ve got to learn to see people as a resource, as a wealth of interest and knowledge that can help you grow, stretch, and move to the places you want to go. So get over your “I don’t talk to strangers” mentality and get growing.

 

Today’s assignment: Get out there and talk to strangers.

Wherever you go today, make a point of talking to people you don’t know. In the checkout line. At the restaurant. When you’re pumping your gas. People are around you all day long and the worst thing you could do is to pretend they’re not there because you are uncomfortable. Approach someone. Strike up a conversation. Ask them what they do for a living. Be kind. As you practice talking to strangers you’re going to find that it’s not so bad. In fact, you’ll discover that it’s actually a lot of fun to get outside your own little world and learn about others and the way they live life. That’s when you’ll be ready to get out there and talk about the real estate investing business and make new contacts that can propel your business. But you’ve got to start today.

Adjusting what you believe is the first step to taking control of your financial future.

Many of us grew up in blue-collar, hard-working families. It wasn’t unusual for us to hear mom or dad say, “We can’t afford it.” That was probably true in a very real sense, but has that mindset soaked into your soul so deeply that you still believe it today? Does it limit your beliefs about how much money you are capable of earning and how much you really can afford? You’ve got to break out of that mindset and a hundred more just like it so you can think of possibilities you’ve never dreamed before. That’s how you begin taking control of your future and moving into the realm of your dreams. Hear how Mark Evans suggests you go about it on this episode.

A simple strategy to make millions of dollars – step by step – EPISODE 63

A simple strategy to make millions of dollars – step by step – EPISODE 63

Real Estate Investing is not really all that complicated. It’s people who have properties that need to be sold, connecting with people who want to buy them. As you get involved in a deal like that, you’ve not only got the opportunity to make some cash for yourself, you’ve also got the chance to help those people accomplish their goals. How do you start making that happen? It’s very simple. In fact, the main tool you need to accomplish it is something you already have and simply need to learn how to use effectively. In this episode Mark announces a great deal on a course he’s creating that will walk you through the step by step process he uses to find buyers and sellers and move his business forward.

The simple power of a well-crafted phone call.

That’s what Mark’s new course is going to be teaching you. New course? That might shock you. For a very long time Mark’s said that he’s not a course guy, but a businessman. But he’s come to realize that he’s got some very practical stuff that can help you move your business forward, things he uses in his business every day, and he’s got to share it with you. Mark is in the process of creating this course right now and is eager to offer it to you for a bottom-dollar price of $100. Someday soon this course will sell for $1000 or more, but now you can get in on the ground floor. You’ll learn how to open and close calls, how to handle angry people, how to deal with objections and insults, and much more. Listen to this episode to get all the details.

Don’t be over-educated.

It’s a real danger to keep learning and keep learning to the point that you feel that you’ve got to learn even more before you can take action. But you can’t be one of those people if you want to get your real estate investing business rolling to the next level. You’ve got to take action on what you know, and learn as you go. In this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to show you how you can do that with simple phone calls. If you follow his simple system you’ve got the opportunity in your hands to make more money than ever before.

Contacting potential buyers and sellers is not “sales,” it’s service.

You’ve got to make that mindset shift if your business is going to be successful. The fear of “sales” is what keeps many people from making the calls or sending the correspondence that can get the ball rolling toward successful Real Estate Investing deals. But you’ve got to change your thinking. When you contact a prospect you’re approaching them with an offer to help. They have properties they need to sell, and you’re able to connect them with buyers. Or perhaps they have money they need to invest in cash producing opportunities, and you can connect them with the people who can use their money wisely and give them a great return. It’s really that simple, and you’re the one who can help them. Listen in as Mark walks you through the reasons you need to be reaching out to help more people, on this episode.

How you can move your real estate investing business up not just one level, but many levels.

You’ve got to come to one of Mark’s “hot seat” events. At these events you’ll be sitting across the table from a variety of real estate professionals who are all there to learn the strategies Mark uses to crank out 6 figures in income every month. You’ll learn not only from Mark, but from the lessons learned your fellow participants share, and together you’ll move your businesses forward in practical ways. This isn’t a “rah rah” session, it’s hands-on advice and tactics that you’ll implement while you are there.

How I turned 32 cents into millions of dollars in real estate transactions – EPISODE 62

Too many real estate investors (or wanna be investors) are bemoaning the amount of work it takes to get real estate deals. They say there’s not enough inventory, not enough opportunity, but in today’s show Mark is going to share a very simple, VERY SIMPLE strategy he’s been using for years with every person who buys a property from him that has resulted in millions of dollars of additional business. It’s an example of how you have to MAKE your own opportunity, not wait for it to come around. Listen in and learn about the 32 cent secret.

Quit talking about all the difficulties and start asking “What CAN we do?”

We live in a day and age when there is so much opportunity. The advances in technology like Periscope (www.Periscope.tv) enable us to communicate with people around the world instantly with the push of a button – and that’s how Mark is sharing a ton of knowledge with people who truly want to move their business and life to the next level. It’s not a game. It’s an opportunity to advance things beyond what you dreamed possible. So ask yourself a new question: “What CAN you do?” It could change your life and it doesn’t have to cost you a ton either. Listen in to find out how Mark did that and changes his business forever.

Yes, a 32 cent investment that brings in millions in revenue.

It DOES sound like a “too good to be true” claim but it’s not. Not at all. It’s the honest truth that has set Mark Evans apart in the real estate investing industry. Why? Because it’s a bit outside the box, a bit unconventional, and it makes his customers remember him for their next transaction or deal. He’s got people coming back to him over and over because of this simple, 32 cent trick. And it’s not a trick. It’s just smart business. What is it? You’ve got to listen to find out… so click the link or the play button and get ready to be blown away by how simple it really is.

But the 32 cent strategy requires some follow up work from you.

Like anything you do in business, this approach doesn’t run itself. You’ve got to put steps in place “after the fact” to make sure it garners the kind of response it’s intended to. If you don’t, you’ll be wasting a whole lot of potential repeat transactions. You can follow up in person by the phone, via postal mail, or even through an automated email sequence that enables your customers to respond to YOU with their interest in additional deals. But you have to do SOMETHING to maximize the potential of this little beauty. As always, Mark has lots of ideas about how you could do that, so listen to the episode first chance you get.

Do you need some help with your real estate investing business?

Why you have to get NAKED if you want full results – EPISODE 61

Mark’s new son has him all riled up. He’s got broader, bigger, more powerful goals on his mind because of the arrival of this little guy. As he holds his little boy he’s realizing the importance of legacy and sees more clearly what it really is. It’s not about the money or the success, it’s about the things that he can provide for his family to live a rich, full, meaningful life. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to challenge you with the things that are bouncing around in his head since the birth of his son, and ask you one question: “When you stand before the mirror, naked, looking at who you really are, what questions should you be asking that will drive you to the next level?”

Why you should never listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game.

Mark hears jokers around him all the time, people who are talking about this or that in the business world or in regard to the financial markets. They sound like they know what they’re talking about and certainly have big, strong opinions about things, but in the next breath they complain about having to work 40 hours a week and are thankful to be having time off. If they’re so smart when it comes to the business realm or the financial markets, why are they still working a 40 hour a week job? Why aren’t they putting their knowledge to work for themselves? The answer is simple: They’re posers. They’re not really as smart as they think. That’s why you should NEVER listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game. If you do, you’ll lose – big. Listen in to this episode as Mark Evans, DM, DN tells you what you’ve got to do to begin building that family legacy today.

The ability to build a strong legacy is not in who you listen to, it’s in the questions you ask.

When you stand naked before the mirror, just you and nobody else, you’ve got to be able to ask and answer some very serious questions. Who are you? What do you stand for? What’s the purpose of your life? Is what you have now all there is? What do you need to do in order to move to the next level, and the next level, and the level after that? If you aren’t willing to ask those questions and come up with honest, gut-level answers, you’ll never begin taking steps to build a legacy that lasts far beyond your lifetime. You’ll never see your kids move into their adult lives with freedom and confidence that you had to scrape tooth and nail to develop. It starts now. In front of that mirror. Question at a time. Find out more on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The power of your vision combined with penetrating questions is what brings about your dream.

You’ve got to start with that clear picture of what it is you’re trying to achieve. Once you knjow it, you have to ask penetrating questions: Why do you want it? Why is it important? Why is it vital that you reach it? What is the impact on your family and your future if you reach it? Get those answers clear in your head, then begin moving forward. Those answers will dictate your actions every day, they’ll push you beyond mediocre, they’ll drive you to do that little bit more when everyone else is stopping. That’s what will motivate you long term. Get that vision and the answers to those questions clear in your mind, review them every day, then get moving.

Why do people with big vision get discouraged and quit?

It’s simple. They allow someone who doesn’t “get” their vision to penetrate it. They allow themselves to listen to the criticism that comes from people who don’t see what they see and maybe never will. They let the opinions of others matter more than the future they’re trying to achieve, and it stalls them out. You’ve got to get your vision clear and stick with it over the long haul. You’ve got to learn to remove the naysayers from the place of influence they have over you. It’s in your head and in your heard that you’ve got to do those things. It’s inside you that those kinds of changes happen. Listen to Mark’s rant today to find out how you can begin taking those steps to elevate your dreams and fire your friends.

How to kill the fear of failure in real estate investing – EPISODE 60

How to kill the fear of failure in real estate investing – EPISODE 60

Do you know why you don’t push your way to the next level in your investing business?

You may not believe it’s true, but the reason is that you’re afraid. Afraid of what? Afraid of failing. There are all kinds of fear-based questions bouncing around in your head: What if the marketing campaign doesn’t work like you hope? What if the money you spend on mailers is wasted? What if you do something wrong and get no responses? What if… What if… What if… It’s the first two words to a sentence that ends in fear, and it will KILL your real estate investing business. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans is going to challenge you to quit focusing on the drama (your fears) and start focusing on the data. Once you do that, and do it consistently, you’ll be able to push your way to the next level and beyond.

You lose so that you can win.

It sounds contradictory, but think it through. Losing, or failing at something is one of the most important ways you learn. And as you learn what didn’t work, what caused the failure, what kept you from excelling – and apply those lessons, you become a winner. You don’t make the same mistakes. You improve your systems. You refine the processes you use so that your real estate investing business begins to climb through the obstacles to launch into the stratosphere. It’s the way it happens. It’s the way life is. You send out 500 mailers, and only get 10% response. That’s losing, in a sense, because it helps you refine your marketing to reach more people next time. You lose so that you can win. Find out how to turn those losses into victories on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

What if all the things you’ve been told about real estate investing are wrong?

You may be a veteran real estate investor. Fix and flips. Turnkey deals. Wholesaling. Those are the catchphrases of your past, the things that have been your bread and butter for a long time. But are you building your business to its optimal potential? Could it be that the very things you’ve learned about real estate investing have put you inside a box that you don’t even know is there? What if you could break free? What if someone could show you how to look at situations differently so that you can come to solutions rather than getting stuck in the mud? Mark Evans is here to help. In this episode he’s going to share with you why you should question what people tell you about real estate investing, and how it can set you free from a trap you may be stuck in.

Learn to think rightly about your real estate investing business

Your job is not to find more cash buyers. It’s not to build a bigger mailing list. Your job is not to get a better response rate from your list. It’s not even to find and sell properties at a profit. Your job is to build a business. When you stop thinking of what you do in terms of individual deals and start thinking about it in terms of an overall business, the fog begins to lift. You’re able to strategize, build systems, and set things in motion that will move your entire business forward, even if you do have a deal or two fall through. Listen in to this episode to see what an experienced real estate investor has to say about that simple mindset shift, and what it can do for your business.

The one event that could quadruple your investing business

That may sound like a very arrogant statement to you. It’s only arrogant if it’s not true. Mark Evans has been doing these “Hot Seat” events for a while now and he’s got the data to prove that the people who attend see their real estate investing business skyrocket after learning and applying what Mark has to share. This is not a “rah, rah” kind of event where you get pumped up but get nothing practical. Mark pulls out his own manuals and shows you step by step how his team locates investors, acquires properties, markets them to buyers, and puts deals together consistently over time. You won’t want to miss out. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get involved.

How to attract more buyers, sellers, and private investors – EPISODE 59

Strap on your seatbelt because the DM is about to unload on you. Not to hurt you, but to help you. Today’s episode is a kick in the butt to motivate you to quit making excuses and get moving on your business goals and lifestyle dreams. Now is the time. Not tomorrow. Not the next day. Not next week. Today is the day you have to make things happen. But it’s up to you to take action, to get things flowing in the right direction. As you learn how to make the most of the opportunities you have at your disposal, you’ll see your goals and dreams come true.

THE UPCOMING HOT SEAT EVENT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE

One of the many opportunities that is at your disposal is Mark’s upcoming “hot seat” event. It’s a gathering of serious, savvy, experienced investors who want to take their investing business to the next level. You could be a part of the next one and see your business goals explode as a result. The only requirements is that you are actively doing deals right now, and that you have at least $5,000 to invest in marketing and materials to apply what you’re learning at the hot seat. If you want to find out more, connect with Mark personally at http://www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com/contact .

WHY DO YOU GET UPSET WHEN DEALS FALL THROUGH?

If you’re hustling in the real estate investing world, you’re going to have deals fall through. But hey, at least you had a deal in the first place. The reason you’re upset when deals fall through is because you don’t have enough deals working. You’re too worried about the one that got away rather than letting it go and getting busy with the next opportunity. If you think there aren’t that many opportunities, then you’re not looking at things clearly. Opportunities to do real estate deals abound, you just have to know how to find them and get them rolling. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get the ball rolling to finding more investors, more cash buyers, more sellers, more of whatever you need in your real estate business.

YOU ARE NOT TOO BUSY TO DO THIS

You may think you are, but you’re not. It’s an excuse you’ve told yourself that has had a hold on you for far too long. Throw away that kind of thinking. You’ve got the same amount of time everyone else does. It’s just a matter of what you’re willing to do with your time. Are you wasting it on movies, TV, and video games? Or are you investing it in activities that can move your life and business forward. This is not about stress or pressure, it’s about purpose. Are you willing to take the time to engage with the people who need what you have to offer so that you can add value to their lives and fulfill your purpose? Take the time to learn the tools available to you – facebook, twitter, periscope, instagram, youtube – and get rolling by getting yourself in front of the people you need to achieve your goals.

THE BIGGEST REASON WHY YOU DON’T HAVE OPPORTUNITIES

The people who could help you with your real estate investing business, the ones who have cash and want to buy and sell properties, they will never know that you can help them if you don’t put yourself in front of them. If you’re not seen, you don’t exist to them. They don’t know what you can offer. So you’ve got to learn how to use and leverage the social media tools out there and maximize your opportunities. And then you do it again tomorrow. Repeat daily, putting yourself out there so that the people you need to meet have the opportunity to meet you. It’s up to you to take action.

Don’t let anybody hold you back from your dreams – EPISODE 58

Naysayers are everywhere. Often right in your own family. It’s not entirely bad, the people who don’t believe in your dreams the most are often doing so because they believe that they are protecting you from being unrealistic or led astray. That’s a good motive. But if you’re going to dream of a better life and leaving a legacy for your family, and if you’re truly going to put action behind your dream and move toward its fulfillment, you’re going to have to be careful who you share those dreams with. This episode of The Real Estate Power Hour is a heartfelt exhortation from the DM about you, your dreams, and what it takes to keep yourself on track.

You are the one who determines what your business will look like.

Don’t ever let other people, or society, or what’s normally done dictate to you what you can and cannot do. You are the one who needs to decide what you want your life to be, then build your business in such a way as to facilitate that kind of life. Most people live it the other way around, allowing their business or their job to dictate the kind of life they can have. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You have the opportunity to change your life, to make it what you envision it being, but you have to get moving. This episode of the Real Estate Power Hour is designed to help you think through the reasons it’s worth taking the chance so you can get started building that life.

Mark’s story is inspiring – an example to show that anything’s possible.

Mark didn’t come from a wealthy home. His parents, to this day, still make only $2500 a month between the two of them. As a freckle-faced kid Mark came across the opportunity to attend a seminar where he saw a man make some calls, talk to some sellers, and set up some deals. That was the day that Mark realized, “I can do that.” He took charge of his own destiny by learning all he could and taking action. He made mistakes. He had some failures. But all along he was learning, growing, and doing what is required to become successful at Real Estate Investing. There’s no reason you can’t do the same thing. Find out more on this episode.

It’s not about millions of dollars and crazy cars.

You can work toward those things if you want, and there’s nothing wrong with it if you do, but what really should be driving your work and business is the difference you can make in the world, and more importantly, in the lives of those you care about. You can build a legacy through the work you’re doing, leaving your family in a place of opportunity and advantage instead of a place of limited opportunities and disadvantage. But you’ve got to decide that you’re going to do it, shut off the negative voices that are throwing doubt on your dreams, and take action to make it happen. Mark’s here to cheer you on and coach you along the way. Find out how to reach out to him on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

Full-circle giving is why Mark does what he does.

That means he wants to help you and anyone else who will take his advice and put it into action. People sneer at him all the time, saying, “Yeah, if it works so well why isn’t everybody doing it?” The sad fact is that the people who say that are the ones who don’t have the guts to take a risk or two and prove it to themselves that what Mark’s saying works. They’ve got time on their hands to criticize because they aren’t taking action. He wants to give because he’s received so much, and he’s willing to help you figure out your next steps if you need his help. Listen to this episode to find out how to contact him.

Why you’ve got to play big to win big – EPISODE 57

So many people who want to move their real estate investing business to the next level are too busy worrying about losing money. That’s right – losing money. They’re penny pinchers who watch every dime to make sure they’re not spending too much. Hey, don’t misunderstand: it’s smart to be wise with your money. But a penny pinching mindset often causes people to misidentify what really IS a wise use of your money and what isn’t. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour, Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to kick your butt to help you see why you’ve got to pay to play.

Hiring the best gets you the best results.

When you’re looking to move your real estate investing business forward, you can go about it in a handful of ways. You can go the “cheap” route, hiring somebody on Fiverr.com to do a substandard job that looks bad and wastes your time and money, or you can search out the best in the business to teach you what you need to know. That’s what Mark realized when he decided he wanted to learn Periscope as a platform to expand his reach. He found the guy who has the most impact and reach through Periscope, contacted him, and asked for his rates. Mark wanted the best to teach him how to be the best. Mark’s podcast production team is another example, the guys over at www.PodcastFastTrack.com take care of his audio and show notes every week – and Mark says they’re the best in the business. Why does he hire them to do his podcast show every week? Because he realized that hiring the best yields the best results. Find out the areas where you could be moving your business forward by investing money in yourself and your business, on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

You can’t have big success if you keep playing small.

By “playing small” Mark means being more concerned about losing money than you are about making money. It means watching every dime, worried that you’re making a mistake rather than putting the money you have to work to move you forward. You don’t have to do a lot of money to do what Mark’s talking about. You do what you can with what you’ve got. But you need to realize that there are people out there who can and will help you move forward exponentially, if you’re willing to pay them to help you. The fees you have to pay to get the best help is not a cost, it’s an investment. It’s the price of admission, a qualifier that tells that high level person that you are serious, that you are a person who is ready to put yourself out there and make things happen. That’s the only way they know that they’re not wasting their time. Learn more about how to “pay to play” in this episode.

If you want to win big you have to be willing to lose big.

Notice, we didn’t say you have to lose big, we said you have to be willing to lose big. It’s being willing to take calculated risks. There are no guarantees in life, no sure-fire steps and tactics that give you 100% certainty about anything. But you can do your homework, you can find people who have done what you’re seeking to do, and you can step into their world and receive the benefit of their hard-learned lessons. But only if you’re willing to take a calculated risk. Take Mark’s “Hot Seat” events as an example. It costs you $5,000 to be a part of it and you’ve got to pay for your travel and lodging. You may think you don’t have $5,000 to spend. You may think that someone like Mark, who’s making so much money, should do an event like this for free. But realize this: If you spend $5,000 to learn how to make $500,000, you just got in on the best deal of your life. It’s not a cost, it’s an investment – and great investments like this yield great returns. Find out more about how you can be part of Mark’s upcoming “Hot Seat” event on this episode of TREPH.

Do you know why you keep dealing with “Tire Kickers?”

Maybe you don’t even realize that you are dealing with tire kickers. What’s a tire kicker? It’s a person who eats up your time with questions and a certain level of interest but is never willing to take action. They gobble up your energy and your focus and your moments with the hope of a possible deal but never come through. Mark believes that if you’re continually dealing with tire kickers, the problem is not them, the problem is you. You’re the tire kicker. You’re acting in the exact same way when it comes to taking your business to the next level. You haven’t been willing to invest in yourself or your business so you’re still playing small, on a low level where the tire kickers hang out. If you do things to move yourself into a new sphere of operations, the tire kickers go away because they can’t afford to play at that level. Quit wasting your time with tire kickers. Quit being one. Find out how on this episode.

Will your family have opportunity or difficulty when you die? – EPISODE 56

This episode comes from a very deep place in Mark’s heart. It flows out of an experience he had this past weekend, sitting with a friend who was telling about a mistake he’d made. This man thought he was providing for his family. He thought he was investing his money in the right kind of insurance. But it turns out that all that money he’s spent on life insurance over the years is gone and he’ll never get it back – when he believed just the opposite. That conversation got Mark all fired up to talk to you today about providing massive opportunity for your family so that when you die, they’ll have a legacy, not a liability. That’s on today’s edition of The Real Estate Power Hour, with Mark Evans, DM, DN.

Cash, CDs, Stock Market – the 3 areas most people put their money

Marks rolls royce phantom

Mark’s Rolls Royce Phantom

Most people are financially ignorant. It’s not that they’re stupid, they just don’t know any better. They only think of cash, Certificates of Deposit, or the stock market when they think about investing money, when in reality there are so many more ways to invest money that yield so much more return. Real estate is one of those, and it’s why Mark Evans is in the real estate investing business. He wants to make money for himself and his family, but also wants to help others get out of the limiting mindset that keeps them from building a financial legacy of their own.

Can you build a massive financial legacy for your family without exploiting others?

You bet you can. In fact, you can build that kind of legacy exactly BECAUSE YOU DON’T exploit others. That’s what Mark and his team are working to provide for their investors and clients every, single day. It goes against the common belief that people who are massively wealthy did something unsavory to get to that point. Sure, it may be true of some people but it doesn’t have to be the way that you build your legacy. There’s more recurring opportunities that come your way when you do business wisely, with integrity and care for people. In this episode Mark busts that that money-is-dirty myth wide open.

There’s no excuse for not building a legacy for your family

In this day and age you have every tool you need. The internet makes it possible for you to research and learn any topic you desire to, and you can become very knowledgeable about even the most complex financial issues in a very short matter of time. But you’ve got to take the initiative to make it happen. You’ve got to be the one to get off the couch and make things happen. And be careful too that you don’t let all the learning become an excuse for not taking action. Some people research and research and never get moving. Don’t let that happen to you. Learn and deploy. Learn and deploy. Find out how on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

Build the legacy bigger by measuring the action you take

One of the key components of growing your business bigger and maximizing your profits is to measure every action you take. It sounds very bothersome, and in some ways it is, but it’s the step that enables you to know exactly what is working and what is wasting time. Without measuring you’re just taking a stab in the dark – repeatedly. You don’t know that you know that you know that what you’re doing actually yields the results you want. So learn how to measure your work. Learn how to refine your systems and procedures based on what you learn. You’ll find your business growing exponentially as you refine the things that work and eliminate the things that don’t. Find out more on this episode.

How Virtual Real Estate Investing REALLY works – EPISODE 55

How Virtual Real Estate Investing REALLY works – EPISODE 55

Think you know about virtual investing? Think again.

There’s so much noise on the TV and internet nowadays about house flipping. You can make some money doing house flips, no question there. But is it the RIGHT KIND of money for you to be making? There’s tons of management and oversight and work you have to put into that model of real estate investing and it keeps you from being a true location independent, virtual investor. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour you’re going to hear what REAL virtual investing is and what it takes to pull it off.

Watch out for the self-proclaimed gurus of virtual investing

There are a lot of people out there flapping their gums about being a virtual investor, but they aren’t the real deal. They say you can sit on a beach somewhere smoking dope and rake in barrels of cash. It’s a bunch of bull. They might be making that kind of money, but it’s through selling you their course, not through actually doing the work of real estate investing. You see, virtual investing = a business mindset. You’ve got to be dedicated to hard work to get a virtual real estate investing business off the ground and make it successful. Mark’s been doing it for years. This episode outlines how he thinks about it.

Virtual Investing Made Easy

MARK’S BOOK – GET IT HERE

Virtual investing can and does work, if you’re dedicated to the hard work of building a team that can help you (did you get that, HELP YOU) make the business thrive. In the past 2 days Mark’s team has closed 19 deals worth well over $200,000 in gross revenue. TWO DAYS! And Mark didn’t attend one of the closings and hasn’t seen any of the properties personally. How does that happen? It’s happening because there’s a team in place and Mark is the one who’s done the work to find the right people and build the systems to make virtual investing on that scale a reality. Listen in to today’s rant from Mark to find out more.

Virtual investing can build true wealth, if you do it right

What if you really knew how to build wealth rather than just make money? What would your life and your future be like then? Chances are you DO know how, you just aren’t doing it. It takes daily action and the willingness to fail in order to succeed. It takes being willing to make mistakes in your real estate investing business so you can learn what NOT to do next time. It takes a commitment to making calls every day, learning how the process works by being in the trenches, and figuring out how to put together the systems that will keep the money machine rolling. Mark’s done it and has a lot to teach you about how YOU can do it. Listen to this episode to receive Mark’s personal invitation to contact him for that kind of advice.

What’s the best virtual real estate investing system?

In this episode Mark’s going to address what the best system is for setting up and running a virtual real estate investing business – and his answer is not going to be what you think. There are so many self-proclaimed gurus out there selling their particular system. Some of them may work in limited ways, but they all have one major, gaping hole – YOU. Every system, no matter how good it is and no matter how successful a track record it may appear to have, requires YOU to apply them day after day. You don’t need a system for that. You need a vision and personal determination to build your future now. Listen in as Mark coaches you how to avoid those types of money-wasters and get started today building your own virtual real estate investing business.

OUTLINE OF THIS POWERFUL EPISODE

  • 3 reasons Mark doesn’t do house flips.
  • A real estate investing business is just that – a business.
  • 19 deals closed in 2 days – it just happened.
  • You’re either growing or shrinking.
  • How virtual investing REALLY works.
  • What if you really knew how to produce wealth, not just money?
  • Why most people never get to the next level.
  • Stop going to seminars and webinars and start focusing on today.
  • “What is the best investing system?” may be the wrong question.
  • Why you don’t need a website to do big business in real estate.
  • We forget the mistakes we’ve made to get to the place we are.
  • Why there’s nothing wrong with working IN your business at the beginning.
  • Building your real estate investing business requires work on your part, not a new system or bank of knowledge.
  • A REAL real estate investor works hard to protect his clients and his business.

Are you being a punk? – Episode 54

Mark Evans is fresh off his big home giveaway event over the weekend of June 20th, 2015. Mark partnered with a couple of great organizations to giveaway a home, from the toothbrushes on up. He gives away a home to give back to the community and to help people who truly need a hand up when hard circumstances have hit their lives. It’s a great thing that he’s excited to do. Find out more about how the event went in this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

Coming home from the event Mark had a great conversation with a couple of guys about financial abuse. Financial abuse? What is that? It’s when the people who should be teaching you how to think rightly about money, how to earn it, how to use it, and how to invest toward the future, never teach you those things. Instead they might teach you the opposite – that people with money are evil, or that events like the one Mark just put on have some sort of angle to them, or else the person putting it on wouldn’t be doing it. Do you have financial scars? Do you know how to stop them from tearing your future apart? Find out in this episode.

If you allow yourself to remain hostage to the financial shackles that have been handed to you by your upbringing or your past, you have nobody to blame but yourself. The things that hold people back are fear, procrastination, etc. – and they all stem from the wrong financial beliefs that they’ve been given by their family or their past.

Why can’t you be an ultra successful real estate investor? Why do you have to remain where you are? You may have reasons, but there are no excuses. You can make things in your life change for the better if you will simply get started. You don’t have to figure out anything except how to begin making calls to investors, sellers, buyers, and money people, every single day. In this episode Mark’s going to lay it all out for you through his Certified Deal Maker Money Map. You don’t want to miss it.

money map

In the end, the only person who can change your life is you. Yes, you may have hit on some hard times. Yes, you may have challenges and obstacles, and difficulties. Everybody does. But you will never realize the success that is possible until you decide that you’re no longer going to wear those messed up money goggles you were handed and begin moving in a direction that will make you money, change your lifestyle, change your life, and impact the lives of countless others. You can do it. Only you can do it. Find out how to get started on this episode.

All of that and more motivation and inspiration on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

A $500,000 deal that shows what’s possible, if you’re willing to work – EPISODE 53

Here’s what you can do if you are willing to work!

Mark’s coming to you from Cleveland, OH today. He’s there to be near family as his wife prepares to give birth to their first child. It’s an exciting time personally and in his business. He’s just wrapped up an almost $500,000 deal involving multiple properties and multiple investors. It resulted in an almost $70K annual residual income for Mark. He doesn’t reveal these things to impress you, but to impress upon you that with hard work and consistency, you can create a business that will fuel your life and lifestyle long term. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark’s going to walk you through some of the details of that deal and how it came about.

Coming up June 20th, 2015, Mark will be hosting his house giveaway – this time in Columbus, Ohio. Every year Mark tries to give away a house that he’s purchased, renovated, and fully stocked – right down to the toothbrushes. These homes go to a family in need, a veteran, or someone else who comes across his radar and he’s happy to do it. This year he’s partnering with The Comeback Project Foundation and Hazel’s House to make this event bigger and better than ever. He’ll also be hosting his own birthday party at the event with food and drinks for everyone who attends. Find out more in this episode.

Mark’s sharing his latest mega-deal in this episode to impress upon you the importance of seriously getting started in your real estate investing business. People who talk, usually don’t do. Mark wants you to stop talking and start doing. Make the calls. Get your business rolling. You’re the only one stopping your forward progress. If you get going now, who knows what might be possible… even a deal like Mark just signed. You can do it but only if you get started, work hard, and put your desires into action. Find out more on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour with Mark Evans.=

In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark’s also going to share some private details of the last deal he put together that involved a conflict between himself and one of the investors. Most people would avoid the situation, avoid the conversation that needs to happen, but Mark’s advice is the exact opposite: jump right into it. You can’t be afraid of the difficult issues that come from wrong assumptions or misunderstanding in a real estate deal. You can only come to a solution if you are willing to get into it, find out the details, and get things rolling. about to change!

Things I DON’T do that skyrocket my business – EPISODE 52

Marks’ chatting with you today from Palm Beach, Florida, preparing for his annual trip to various parts of the world. Today’s episode is really about how you can better value your time by implementing things (or removing things) that can free you up to do more business in better ways.

This is a practical episode. Mark’s going to walk you through some very basic things that he DOES NOT DO because they take up precious time that he’d rather use for other things. He’s working to get away from the time-suckers, the things that turn into drama instead of data and cause you to focus on things that you can easily hand off to others.

For example: No matter how many deals you are doing every month, why in the world do you need to go to a closing? Everything is electronic today, everything can be automated. Why would you take the time to go to a closing when everything you need from that event can be taken care of without you. Mark would be on the road 20 hours every week if he went to all the closings his business does. Don’t go to closings.

You want to build your business around the goals you have set for yourself and your life. If you don’t, you’ll be doing what other people want you to do instead of what you should be doing to move your life and business forward. Don’t get bogged down in a thousand trivial things that keep you from doing that.

Make sure you do everything possible to attend Mark’s Certified Deal Maker event to learn how to ramp up your real estate investing business. The cost is only $97 and includes a ton of resources for you to take home and put in place in your real estate investing business. Part of the event is Mark’s birthday party – where he’s picking up the tab on everything! There are not packages for sale, no courses, no books – just a lot of great stuff included in your cost, just for you.

Closing the gap to accomplish more while doing less – Episode 51

Closing the gap is nothing more than follow-through and discipline.

Mark’s got some great content for you today, tips to help you accomplish more in your real estate and wealth-building business, while doing less. You’re going to learn a powerful, important thing in this episode to help you get more out of life.

The certified deal maker event

Before we get to the main content of the show, Mark wants you to know you are personally invited to his “Certified Deal Maker Event” coming up in Columbus, OH. This event is $199 per person, and is a buy-one-get-one-free type event. That means if you purchase one ticket you’ll be able to bring your spouse, your business partner, your assistant, totally free.

And you won’t be pitched while you’re there. This is really a “customer appreciation” event where Mark’s saying “thanks” by hosting a powerful, perk-laden event for you. You won’t be asked to buy any books, courses, or tools. You’ll be asked to come, learn, and enjoy. That’s it. And on top of all that you’ll get tons of gifts including software, tools and other resources to get your business going at tremendously larger levels. Get your ticket now. June 18-20, 2015.

Closing the gap

The real questions you should be asking yourself are these: What can I do to have less things on my “to do” list? How can I get them off of that list while still getting them done at a high level?

Focus on one thing and become great at it. Don’t allow hundreds of open-ended things to consume your time and energy and attention. That’s leaving hundreds of “gaps” in your business that aren’t getting closed or finished. You can’t do that and expect to be successful or profitable. You can’t be everything to everybody. You can’t do everything. You need to focus on one thing and become an expert at it, following it through to completion in every way and in every detail.

Closing the gap means actions equal results, and distractions are what keep you from taking those actions. You get your eyes off the prize when you have too many things that you’re trying to do. Closing the gap means getting things done. You find a way to get it done, which doesn’t mean you have to do it yourself. You spend 3 minutes, figure it out, and activate a plan to get it done.

Here’s what’s in this powerful audio episode

  • Learning what it means to “close the gap.”
  • The importance of focusing on one thing and becoming great at it.
  • Why closing the gap means focusing on what your highest priority is right now.
  • The reasons you must remove all distractions.
  • Focus equals success.
  • The art is in growing the business – seeing the big picture and handing off the little pieces.
  • The most important thing in your business – selling
  • How leading with value can help you close the gap
  • Your invitation to Mark’s “Certified Deal Maker Experience”
  • A story from Mark’s life that illustrates the need for closing the gap.

One word to make you unstoppable – Episode 50

You’ve got to learn to harness the power of Momentum!

Mark’s coming to you from Naples, FL and is confident he’s got one powerful word to share with you that will enable you to get maximum results! What’s the word that can make you unstoppable? Here’s a hint: It’s a word that can also get in way and slow you down. What’s the word? MOMENTUM.

When momentum is in place, things roll forward, things actually happen, stuff gets done, and results are produced. Momentum creates opportunity, and opportunity creates revenue. That’s how it works… and momentum is the key.

This podcast show is a great example that Mark uses to illustrate how momentum works. He started out doing the show when he felt like it, when he got around to it, etc. But when he decided to make it a priority and put a system in place for himself and his team to get the show going, momentum began to build. He now has hundreds of people downloading every episode the first day it publishes. Momentum matters. Momentum makes all the difference.

Taking that thought into your business is a powerful thing. Momentum in your business is vital and you can create it by taking action. Don’t let down after you have a success because that’s when momentum is going. You want to keep that ball of power rolling so that you can accomplish even more Momentum is your friend. Momentum is what produces the very results you want, what will make you unstoppable.

You can create momentum in very practical ways: by making 5 more calls today than you usually do. By stepping into a few more opportunities than you feel comfortable with. By doing more marketing than you traditionally do. You want to figure out how to get more eyeballs on your deals than you usually get. You want to figure out how to get more people listening to the opportunities you have than is normal. That is what creates momentum and momentum is what creates massive opportunity that will move your business forward.

It’s not rocket science. It’s the way the world works. If you know that, you know all you need to know to get things rolling in your business. Even the big businesses like McDonalds and Apple know this truth. That’s why they continue to market. They know they’ve got to keep the momentum going or else their business will begin to decline. They know they’ve got to keep moving in order to keep thriving, growing, and making the profits that they desire.

It’s not a matter of if this will work… it’s a matter of how well it will work. That’s where you have to learn some things; how to create a powerful direct mail piece, how to talk to buyers and sellers, how to structure a deal – but before you get to any of that you’ve got to understand where it all begins. It all begins with the routine steps you take that start the momentum rolling.

Listen to this show to get the full scoop. Pay attention. Take notes. Decide what the basic steps are that you need to take in order to get the momentum rolling. Then get started.

How to kill the boogeyman of fear – Episode 49

Kill the fear. You have to do it if you’re going to be successful

In this episode, Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to give you step by step info that can help you get massive results in your financial success… and it has to do with killing fear – the boogeyman that holds you back from the level of amazing success you can have.

Mark had a huge month in March and is expecting even more in April. It’s enabled him to do some reflection and thinking about how he’s gotten to the place he’s at. There are a lot of rich people out there who you’d never expect of being rich. It’s difficult to judge a book by its cover. That should be very empowering because of the day we live in. You can make money from anywhere in the world, just like Mark does, using your knowledge, experience, and a laptop computer. Rich people don’t make their money the way they used to and they don’t live and look the way they used to. That should make you excited.

But more importantly, this episode is going to help you examine and overcome the boogeyman called “fear.” Fear can immobilize you, keep you from moving forward, bar you from stepping into great opportunities that can radically move you forward. If you don’t learn how to overcome fear, you’ll be stuck in a place where nothing will ever happen.

Here’s one tip from the episode: When you feel fearful about doing something, do it as soon as possible. That’s the only way you’re going to overcome it. You’ve got to build a pattern of stepping into fear instead of away from it or else the fear is going to control you for your entire life. It’s that pattern of stepping into fear that will set you free from the fear. Action will always decrease the feeling of fear. It’s like your first date. Once you’ve done it, you discover it wasn’t as scary, or bad, or nerve-wracking as you thought it would be.

So, strap on your seatbelt and listen to this episode if you’re ready to overcome the fear that is holding you back. Fear is like the boogeyman under your bed. You have to realize it’s not as tough as it wants you to think. You have to step into it and overcome it.

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going – Episode 48

Mark’s here to kick you in the seat and get you moving!

Mark’s coming to you from Palm Beach, Florida today – ready to take you on the fast-track to success. And before you get into the show, Mark asks you to head over to iTunes to leave a rating and review for the podcast… and if you do so, contact Mark and let him know and he’ll send you a special gift. No joke.

The mantra for today’s show is simple, but powerful…

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

This could be your year. This could be the time for you to make your ideal life a reality. It requires one simple thing. One step. Then you repeat it. When Mark first started in the Real Estate Investing world he didn’t start out sitting on the beach in Palm Beach, Florida. He didn’t live anywhere in the world he wanted. And he didn’t do everything perfectly. In fact, he did tons of things wrong. Bestselling books with typos and grammar mistakes. Botched deals and misspoken phrases to important potential investors. He made lots of mistakes – no, he made TONS of mistakes. But he didn’t care.

WHY?

Because he knew this simple truth:

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

What does that mean? It means that you have got to get started making your dreams come true. You’ve got to quit obsessing over the potential of making mistakes. News flash: You WILL make mistakes. Get over it. It’s not that big of a deal. Everybody makes mistakes. It’s part of how you learn and grow and move toward success. In fact, every failure plants seeds for the next success. It’s part of the process of moving toward your dreams to live a different kind of life, to help people, to change the direction of your family tree and leave a legacy for those you love. But none of that will happen if you don’t get moving, if you don’t take the risks necessary to make things happen. Because…

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

You don’t have any time to waste. It would be stupid for you to wait. Why? Because you don’t know how long you’re going to be on this planet. You don’t know how much time you have left. The only difference you can make in the world and in the lives of the people you love is the difference you can make today. But you’ve got to take action. It’s those small, habitual actions that build one on top of the other and lead to success. It’s those daily steps of diligent, consistent work that put you in a place to reap the dividends down the line. Get yourself moving. Make things happen today.

It’s yours to do. It’s yours to achieve.

You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

Telling your story can increase your sales! – Episode 47

Telling your story can increase your sales! – Episode 47

If you want to get more buyers, more sellers, and more private lenders… This is the episode for you.

Mark is hanging out in Florida, waiting for his parents to arrive from Columbus, Ohio for a visit. But before he heads to the beach to hang out and smoke a cigar, he’s unloading this boat-load of great information to help you get your business moving to greater heights.

Learn how to share your story in micro-pieces to pique interest

When you’re being honest, just sharing your story with people, you CAN NOT mess it up! Your story is powerful and stories move people. But you have to do it in a casual, laid back way – in micro-pieces so that you don’t overwhelm people. Twitter is a great example, you only have 140 characters. And you’re going to tell your story in specific ways with specific people – buyers, sellers, or lenders.

When you’re sharing your story, you’re creating a message to engage, to extract, and to re-engage. This episode is Mark’s thoughts on those three things.

Engage: The door opener for lasting business relationships and success

When you share your story initially, you want to do it in a way that stimulates people’s curiosity. You want to tell your story to make them want to ask you questions. You tell the story of who you are, what you do, the successes you’ve been having. You want them to wonder how you do what you do. That’s the first step, the first micro-piece of your story.

And you want to do so in a way that makes you likeable. People do business with people they like, not people who are irritating or obnoxious. The way you tell your story is important. Make sure you tell it in an appealing way.

Extract: Caring for people in a way that uncovers what they want and need

This part is about asking questions… it’s about understanding the stories of the people you’re dealing with. It’s about finding out what people need and what they want. When you do this in a simple, low-pressure, relational way, you’re going to not only find out what they need and want, you’re going to express care to them. They are going to feel like you care about them and their goals- and you should.

So ask them vital questions:

  • Could you tell me your story?
  • What are your goals in working with me?
  • What amount of passive income is it that you want each month?
  • What are the things you’re concerned about?

When you take that extra step, one that very few people bother to ask, you’ll find out things you never would have known. You’ll find out more things, more opportunities, more possibilities, and help that person see more potential than they knew existed.

You’ll also find out what kind of situation they are in. Are they a motivated seller? Then you’re going to tell them success stories, tell them how you can help them given what they’ve told you. Are they a lender or investor? Then you’re going to learn what sort of deals they’re looking for, which will help you know when to contact them about the deals you find. You’ll also be able to instruct them on how you can help.

Re-Engage: Casting the vision for what could happen

This is where you capitalize on the relationship you’re building and use the information you’ve discovered. Tell stories of your clients. Tell them how other people have succeeded. Tell them about the strategies they used. You’re educating them, giving them information about where they can find more cash to invest, how they can do it creatively and ethically. Keep in mind, it’s not about you, it’s about them. You want to let them know that you have the knowledge and experience and skills to help them, and that you are working in their best interest.

New Mindset to Grow your Real Estate Business Episode 46

Quit looking for excuses. Only hard work will get you closer to success.

If Real Estate is so easy, why don’t more people do it…

Today we’re going to talk about the things that are stopping you from accomplishing your dreams. I’ve been asked a lot about why more people aren’t doing real estate, if it’s so easy. The truth is that a lot of things in life are really easy. If you want to lose weight, just eat better and exercise. It’s not hard. It just that most people don’t want to do it. Real estate is the same way. You find a buyer and find a seller. Put them together and bam!, you make money. The majority of the people who are trying to do business should just stop being soft. Quit looking for excuses. There’s nothing that’s going to get you closer to success than hard work. Stop lying to yourself.

Take stock of your weaknesses and get someone else to do those things

Take stock of who you are and what you’re good at. If you’re not a great public speaker, quit complaining about not being able to do it. If you’re not good at negotiations, get your leads and then hand the negotiations to someone else. Maximize what you are good at. Don’t waste your time trying to get better at what you suck at.

The reason I’m so good at real estate is that I took stock of what I’m good at and I do that. I can hire people to do the things I’m bad at. I can’t do paperwork. I’m no good at the day to day parts of business. Don’t waste your time doing the things you’re terrible at.

Don’t be afraid of hard work

What’s great about how I grew up is that I’m not afraid of hard work. Waking up at 4 am and working until 11 pm is the way it is. If you think you can work part time or take tons of time off and get the results I get by working really hard for a lot of hours, you’re soft. You can’t.

A lot of people say, “If this worked, why don’t more people do it.” It’s not hard, but you have to put in the work. No one cares how well you did in school, how fat or skinny you are. No one cares.

You have to go through the process of daily action to get where you’re going. Look at your results. If you’re not willing to try whatever you can, if you’re not willing to push harder, you’re soft. It doesn’t matter if you make 100k or several million. You have to be willing to make changes and try new things.

Most of the people I hang around are willing to admit what they don’t know. That’s really a strength because to do so means that you can hire people to do what you can’t.

Get comfortable with the chaos of business

I’m comfortable with the chaos of business. You have to get used to it. Sometimes you’ll have a lot of inventory. Sometimes you’ll have too many buyers. Sometimes you’ll have too many sellers. Sometimes you’ll have lots of opportunity and sometimes you won’t.

To be a leader, you just have to find people to fill in the gaps of what you’re not good at. To tell you the truth, because I’m so bad at a lot of the day to day things, if I was an employee at my own company, I’d fire me. I know what I’m bad at so I have people who fill in those gaps. I’m not good at managing people day to day, so I have someone who does that. It’s that simple.

Deals and ideas don’t matter

Deals and ideas are useless. It’s execution and implementation that makes money. People sometimes want you to sign non-competes so that you don’t take their ideas. The problem is that their ideas are useless without execution. Ideas are a dime a dozen.

Right now, the money is like water. It’s easy to come by. It wasn’t always like that. No matter the situation, people are making excuses that they can’t do it. Work hard daily. Wake up and make it happen. Don’t do things that you’re bad at. Do what you’re great at. Just keep working hard.

Have dreams so big that you’ll do what it takes

Your dreams have to be bigger than your problems. We all have problems. Deal with them. Quit being soft and making excuses. This is the common thread of “wannabe” real estate investors. It’s not that deals aren’t out there. Look in the mirror. What you see, who you see, is the problem. Don’t blame everyone else. It’s easy to get distracted. Work on execution.

If you don’t have sellers, call 20, 30, 40, 50 sellers every day. If you need buyers, call 20, 30, 40, buyers a day. You just need to grind it out. Keep working; keep trying. Don’t rely on a “push button” process to make it easy. It’s not.

Next time you talk to a seller, help them. Next time you talk to a buyer, help them. That’s your job.

What this looks like in my business

What I’m great at is “turn key investments.” I buy properties. I clean them up. I get renters in them. Then I sell them for a nice profit. That’s what I’m great at. Where most people fail is in the day to day of these investments. This is a business, so we have a team in place to create a system so that it’s easy for our customers. We have first-class service because I do everything first class and I’ve noticed that people are willing to pay more for it.

My goals are bigger than the process. The journey is more enjoyable than the destination. Look at the journey. It’s what got you there. Remember that you don’t have to get it right; you just have to get it going.

Look at your family and your business. Are you hard or soft? You can have the life that you’ve always wanted. You just can’t do it in an easy way. I can’t remember who said it, but you can get what you want if you help others get what you want. I’m just tired of people pretending that they’re getting people get what they want, but they’re not doing it.

If you’re hard, we should talk. If you have some capital to get started, we should talk. If you’re wishy washy and aren’t sure what to do next, we should talk. Just go over to TheRealEstatePowerHour.com and leave me a message and I’ll get in touch with you.

Stop Selling to Make More Sales – Episode 45

Welcome to the Real Estate Power Hour.

Stop Selling to Make More Sales - Episode 45You know I’m not techy, but some of my people are telling me that I really need to get some feedback from you on iTunes for this show. So, if you could just click here and give me a review on iTunes, that would really help me out. Please make it honest. That’s what really matters to me. As a thank you, if you’d let me know you’ve done it, I’ll send you a special video. Just head over to my contact page and tell me about your feedback (after you’ve left it) and I’ll send it your way in appreciation for you taking a minute of your life to help me out.

I’m also getting a ton of emails and feedback on the last two episodes. If you haven’t heard shows 43 and 44, with Edwin Kelly, about self-directed IRAs, please go listen to them. Learn what we’re sharing in those shows. This is powerful, life-changing information.

Learn what people want

One thing I’ve learned is that if I want to be successful, you have to learn what your prospects really want. If it’s a motivated seller, if it’s a buyer, if it’s a contractor, you have to know what they really want. Once you do this, it’s very helpful to them and ultimately to you.

One of my sales guys had a call the other day and didn’t make the sale. We record all our calls for training purposes, so I listened to it. He’s an older gentleman and he really knows what he’s doing, so we wanted to know what went wrong. I listened to the call and found that he was so focussed on what he had to offer that he didn’t take the opportunity to learn about the prospect and how he could benefit her. You’ve got to listen to what others want.

Listen a lot more than you talk

Listen 80% of the time. Educate, talk, and guide 20%. You have two ears and one mouth for a reason. When you listen to someone and take comfort in what they’re saying, they’ll take the next step. Ask questions and learn about them. You can use that information to help them. Think about how you acted when you first met your special someone. If you start talking and never let them talk, how would it have gone? Not well.

In this call, she said, “I have over 100k to invest, but have a couple of questions.” He was so concerned about making the sale that he didn’t answer her questions. As a result, neither one won. He didn’t make the sale. She didn’t get her questions answered.

Why do you think I want you to listen to shows 43 and 44 with Edwin Kelly? Only 1% of people know this stuff exists.

You don’t need to go to a seminar to learn how to get private money. Spend time getting to know people and asking questions and listening. Once you do that and educate them about the possibility of making 7, 8, 9, 10, 12% with that in a piece of real estate, that gives you an opportunity as an investor to take that money and use it together. Build up a relationship with this prospect and learn what they need and want.

I was at a program and Angela came up to me. She said, “You’re going to kill me. I’ve got over $100,000 in an old IRA.” I asked her why. She told me that she was afraid of to take action. I asked her how long it had been like this. She told me that it had been 4 years. I didn’t care whether I ever sold her a deal. I just wanted to help.

Try and help; don’t try and sell

What I was doing was trying to help. I started by talking to her about what she was doing. If people are talking about IRAs, they have money to invest. Stop looking for people and start listening. Go where the people are that are asking the questions. The easiest money in the world is made when you listen and share and educate.

My goal isn’t to sell them, but if I help them, a lot of times, they will come back to get my help. Take some time to learn about self-directed IRAs so that you can help others.

I didn’t always understand money. I learned that I should just bring people on my team who know more than me. So, I’ve developed relationships with people like Edwin who can take me farther than I can go alone.

I was on a call with a financial planner. I asked him what his biggest struggle was with his business. He told that he had a decent number of leads he needed help with. Then, we got talking about traveling. I told him about my travels and he told me about his. Not long after the call, I got a message from him saying that we’d gotten off on the right foot and that he had 35k in hand. He wanted to be the first of the clients that he sent to me. This was literally 5 minutes after I talked to him.

A lot of people say “you’ve got to sell to make money,” but I say that there are a lot of ways to make sales. Don’t misuse this. I spend a lot of time on customer experience. I think, “How can I get you a check faster? How can I get you a gift? How can I give you the best experience?”

The more you listen and help, the more people will trust you

I have clients who have done 50 something properties every year. They’ve never been to the property. They’ve never done all the things that people think they need to do. They trust that I’m trying to help them.

When you hear of something hard, that’s an opportunity to deepen the relationship

If you’re talking to a prospect and they say that they’ve had a death in the family or that something bad has happened, think of this as an opportunity to deepen the relationship. Spend $5-10 on a gift and send it to their house. If you’re really tight on money, send them a card. It takes almost no time and almost no money. Tell them you’re sorry about their loss and that you’re there to help in any way you can.

This just happened. I had a prospect who’d just lost a grandparent and their mother. I sent them a gift immediately. I didn’t want to sell them at that moment. I wanted to deepen the relationship. This isn’t a sell process. This is how I live my life.

Your opportunity to learn more

Edwin and I are about to have an opportunity for you to join us. It costs $5,000. I know that it sounds like a lot of money, but the money you can make as a result is a massive opportunity. There are some cool things that you can do as a result. It’s going to be a small room. You’re going to be there with us. Think about it. If you have one client with $100,000, that one deal could pay for this trip.

If you’re interested, I want to talk to you. Whether it’s for you or a client, there are a lot of things you can learn that will maximize your account. Don’t think you’re beneath this or above it. We’re here to learn. I’m very excited about this because I know what it can do for you.

If you have questions, go to the contact form on the site. I look at all of them. I typically reply one on one or via a show like this. I really want you to have the best results.

Self-directed IRA strategies that can explode your legacy – part 2 – Episode 44

If you haven’t heard part one of this show, go listen to episode 43 over on TheRealEstatePowerHour.com

 

Can you make money tax-free?

Double your monthly retirement incomeNow, we’re moving on to protecting your wealth. There are two choices. We can pay ourselves or we can pay taxes. What does it take to pay yourself? First, open a self-directed IRA and put money into it. You can do this by either contributing from earned income, transferring from another IRA, or by doing a rollover. If you have a 401k or similar plan, you can roll it over into your self-directed IRA. Then you need to use that money to make investments.

There are three ways you make money. The first is in a taxable environment. This is how you normally make money. With an IRA, you have two other options. You can take $5,000 and subtract that from your taxable income. You get a deduction. When you make investments, you don’t pay taxes on the income within the IRA. As long as the money stays in the IRA, you don’t pay taxes on that. When you start to withdraw money, that’s when you pay taxes on it.

Here’s the way to make tax-free money

The other way is to use a Roth IRA. Instead of making a contribution and taking a tax deduction, put money in after taxes. If you do that, you don’t pay taxes on the growth OR when you withdraw it. You paid your taxes on the original $5,000, so you don’t pay taxes on the back side. This can save you huge amounts when you go to withdraw it, which you can do as long as you’re 59 ½ and the account has been open for 5 years or more.

If your IRA grows to $1,083,000 and you make 10% a year, you can withdraw $108,300 a year without affecting the principle. If you did this with a traditional IRA, that means you’d pay taxes on the money which lowers the spendable amount to about $81,000.

If you do the same thing with a Roth IRA, you get to spend all $108,300 and not pay taxes. You don’t pay federal, state, local, Social Security, or even capital gains taxes. Don’t believe me? Let’s check with the IRS. Take a look at Publication 590 and what it says about distributions from a Roth IRA. When you take title to real estate in the name of your IRA, you’re protecting future earnings from taxes.

How to access money early

You can borrow money from the IRA by the way. You can borrow up to $50,000 a year from your IRA. You have to pay interest on it. The great thing is that you’re paying interest to your IRA, so you’re paying yourself.

How to create wealth for your children using this strategy

All a person needs to open an IRA is earned income. So, take some of their income from working at McDonalds, mowing lawns, etc. and put it into a Roth IRA. Some people say, “My kids are useless. I can’t get them to do anything to earn money.”  Here’s a strategy. I pay my kids for their likenesses that I use in my presentations. That money can then go into a Roth.

Now, imagine this. If you have a baby and open up a Roth IRA for them at age 1 with $5,000 and no one touches it again (including no more contributions) until they’re 65, they’ll have over $2 million. In a traditional IRA, a large chunk of that in taxes when they withdraw it. With a Roth, it’s all tax free.

What’s really exciting about this

When you die, the assets of the Roth IRA roll over to your spouse. That means that once the husband dies, the wife will have the same income and won’t need to depend on anyone. What happens when she dies, on average, ten years later? The money goes to your heirs. Since they inherited it, the money remains tax-free, but the minimum age for distribution goes away. On average, they’ll live another 55 years. All this money is growing for a total of over 100 years. You’re able to give the life you’ve only dreamed of to your descendents. Everyone should have this type of account.

Now for some questions

What are the fees? You have a set up fee for as little as $50. Annual fees are about $400 on a $100,000 IRA. If you pay fees outside the IRA, you can deduct them. So, in effect a $400 fee is only about ⅔ that amount. You can also pay the fee within the IRA, but that’s up do you.

Can Edwin’s company set up a solo 401k? Yes they can. In fact, it’s one of his favorite account types. It offers a great deal of benefits to his his clients. You can put more money in it. You can put Roth contributions into it. You can borrow from it tax free and pay yourself the interest, firing the bank.

What about required distributions? At 70 ½, the IRS says that you have to take a minimum distribution from a traditional IRA. With a Roth, there is no required minimum distribution, so you have more flexibility.

Can you take money out and put it back within 30 days with no penalty? The IRS has what’s called a 60-day rollover. The trick is that you can only do that once a year. If you need to take more money out, you can do a loan for up to 5 years. You can pay it back early. There’s no prepayment penalty. 60-day rollovers aren’t great if something happens. If you’re less than 59 ½, you pay taxes AND a 10% penalty. If you do a 401k loan, you have 5 years, not 60 days to pay it back. Most of the time, setting up a “solo k” and borrowing from it is the way to go. If you have a traditional IRA, that can be rolled-over into a solo k.

Can you self-direct an IRA to buy a property you already own? No. That’s called self-dealing and it’s specifically prohibited by the IRS. You could sell that property and buy another with your IRA, but you can’t transfer property from yourself to your IRA.

What are minimum costs to set up a self-directed IRA? You only have to pay the set-up fees and as little as a $500 contribution. Everyone should have one. Maybe you don’t have all that cash laying around. If you have an emergency fund, you can start your Roth with it. When an emergency pops up, you can borrow from it with no taxes and no penalties.

Can money from a single-member LLC be put into a Roth? Quick reminder that this isn’t tax or legal advice. If it’s earned income, yes it can. It doesn’t matter where the money itself comes from. You just have to have earned income to do this.

Can you buy real estate in a foreign country? Yes. You can buy real estate anywhere you want.

If you have a traditional IRA, can you roll it into a Roth? Yes. You can do a conversion. The government knew that since Roths were only created in 1998 and traditional IRAs were created in 1974, people might want to go from one to another. Since you took a deduction at the time that you contributed to your IRA, you need to pay taxes on the money going into the Roth. There are conversion strategies that make this more feasible.

Show outline:

  • Now, we’re moving on to protecting your wealth. There are two choices. We can pay ourselves or we can pay taxes.
  • There are three ways you make money. The first is a taxable environment. With an IRA, you have two other options either get a deduction now and pay taxes on your distributions or pay taxes now and not pay them on your distributions.
  • Take a look at Publication 590 and what the IRS says about distributions from a Roth IRA.
  • How to access money early: you can borrow money from the IRA and pay your IRA the interest, not the bank.
  • How to create wealth for your children using this strategy. All a person needs to open an IRA is earned income. So, take some of their income and put it into a Roth IRA.
  • When you die, the assets of the Roth IRA roll over to your spouse. When your spouse dies, it goes to your heirs. Since they inherited it, the money remains tax-free, but the minimum age for distribution goes away.
  • Now for some questions: What are the fees? Can Edwin’s company set up a solo 401k? What about required distributions? Can you take money out and put it back within 30 days with no penalty? Can you self-direct an IRA to buy a property you already own? What are minimum costs to set up a self-directed IRA? Can money from a single-member LLC be put into a Roth? Can you buy real estate in a foreign country? If you have a traditional IRA, can you roll it into a Roth?

Double your monthly retirement income with these self-directed IRA strategies – episode 43

We’re here with Edwin Kelly covering some great ways to leave a legacy for yourself and your family

Double your monthly retirement incomeWe’re going to go over a plan to pay ourselves and not the government — never pay taxes. We’re going to learn how to double your monthly retirement income.

The problems with retirement savings today

There’s a social security study on IRAs. So after 40 years, only 5 out of 100 people were economically secure in retirement. A lot of people are using outdated vehicles. What are the challenges that led to this problem? Part of the problem is taxes. If you make $100,000 this year, you could pay over $42,000 in taxes.

The other problem is investments. Some people choose safety where the principle is safe, but it doesn’t grow quickly. This is the other thing that people do. They put their money in the stock market in what’s called a mutual fund. Sometimes it goes up and sometimes it goes down, but it’s never steady. There’s no predictability.

The last problem is that people don’t know how much they’re paying. There’s an organization called the Investment Company Institute. The average fee is 5.3%. Think about how much the stock market has to go up just for you to get back to $0.

For most people, “Welcome to Walmart” is their new retirement plan. There is an alternative.

Not just an IRA, a self-directed IRA

We’re going to be talking about self-directed retirement accounts. Think of it like a Ferrari. What is the fuel you put into it? Investments. We’re going to choose investments that are consistent and reliable.

This self-directed IRA is an IRS approved vehicle that allows us to run our own investments and spend it tax free. If you could save $5,000 a year for 30 years and get 10% interest, what will that grow to? Over $991,000. What is important is that it’s predictable, secure income.

“You can’t buy real estate with your IRA! Can you?!”

A lot of people think that you just can’t do real estate inside an IRA. You’ll hear that from people like attorneys, CPAs, tax advisers, family members, or financial planners, but who makes the rules about IRAs? The IRS, well at least they enforce them. If you go to the IRS website, it tells you that plan trustees can prohibit real estate. It’s not a government prohibition.

Buy outright, leverage, or partner with IRA investments

You can do an outright purchase, leverage, or by partnering. Imagine that someone has less than $100,000. If you use money from your retirement account, all the costs must return to the IRA and all profits must be returned to the IRA. It’s taxed protected.

Imagine a couple. They could partner together and buy a property they couldn’t otherwise afford. All expenses are split in the percentage of ownership as are all profits.

There’s about $20 trillion in retirement accounts that people aren’t sure about what they should do with it. There’s a lot of ways to go about this. Each is different for the individual goals of the people involved.

A lot of people think they have self-directed IRAs. The problem is that your financial institution will say it’s “self-directed” in that you can buy any of their investments with it. If you want to buy property, rent it out and have the profits go back to the IRA, they won’t let you. A true self-directed IRA will.

Believe it or not, you can borrow money from within your IRA and pay it back from profits from within your IRA. If you have time, you can do that to buy properties that will be owned free and clear by the time you retire.

Double your the amount that you’d have with social security alone

Here’s a simple strategy to double your monthly retirement income. The average social security benefit in 2014 is around $1,300. With the traditional investments, you might get $300-400 more. Instead, if you buy two properties that pull in $700 a month each, that’s double what social security pays.

The question isn’t how much you have in the bank, but how much will come into your hands every month. If it’s a ROTH IRA, it’s all tax free, so that’s like 30-40% more spending power. A lot of people don’t understand the rules 100%. One wrong move and you could really be in trouble. They run into this risk because a lot of companies that do self-directed IRAs don’t give any guidance. That’s the big risk. You don’t know what you’re doing and your IRA trustee won’t tell you.

Show outline:

  • We’re going to go over a plan to pay ourselves and not the government — never pay taxes. We’re going to learn how to double your monthly retirement income.
  • The three problems with retirement savings today: taxes, investments, and fees.
  • We’re going to be talking about self-directed retirement accounts.

The ONLY way to advance your business volume 10 times what it is – Podcast 42

Mark is heading off to a cruise soon – time to hang out with the family and enjoy the life he’s built.

Mark used to be so strapped to his business operation from day to day that he couldn’t get away. Hew as trapped, stuck in a job he built for himself instead of having a business that served him and created the kind of life he wanted. So, h ow can a guy with a thriving, deal-making real estate business take off as much time as Mark does?

The trick is that he’s put systems and personnel in place that allow him to get away from the administrative stuff that runs the business and enjoy the fruit that’s coming from the business.

Today on the Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to share with you how you can 10X your business. Not double. Not triple. But 10 times the volume and income so that you can do exactly what Mark does – live the life you want to live.

Here’s a clue: It’s impossible for you to 10X your business when you’re working by yourself. To double your business as an individual you simply have to work harder. That’s OK, if you have unlimited energy and time and health. But those things are not true of anyone, are they? If that’s the way it is to only double your business, what’s this talk about doing 10 times the volume and income? How is that possible?

It’s possible when you learn the power of systems, processes, and personnel. That’s the key… and that’s what Mark will be sharing with you on episode 42 of the Real Estate Power Hour. You need people (and quality people) to scale up your business. It’s the only way you can 10 times your business – and when you get the right people in place you can do 10X in business faster than you can double your business.

That means that YOU have to become a better leader. It’s leadership that makes the difference between making decent money and building wealth. Wealth is only built through building leadership – in yourself and in the competent people you put into place who run the vital systems and processes that make your business go. Mark has a COO, a sales manager, and office staff who handle everything that goes on in his business so that he can be out living his life. Mark is still involved in many ways, but the minutia of the daily operations are not his to deal with. Leadership made the difference.

And leadership means that you have to take responsibility for yourself by discovering what you stand for, what you’re all about in this world. When you find your center you will be able to clarify exactly how you are going to design and build your business. That’s how you’ll know the people you need and the systems that they need to manage.  That’s how you’ll be able to deal with the resistance that comes up against your goals. That’s the only way you can build the business and lifestyle you want. That’s what leadership is all about.

Episode 41 – 4 questions that will help you take the world by storm

Do you want to know what’s wrong with your life and business?

These 4 questions will help you discover it.

Mark has returned from a couple of mastermind groups in Las Vegas and he’s pumped to equip you to take the world by storm. It takes the right answer to the 4 questions Mark is going to cover in this episode. These are not questions you should answer immediately. Take some time. Stew over them. Then start writing down your answers.

The answers you come up with will reveal the areas where you need to make changes so that your life and business can move to the next level.

What are your blind spots? You won’t know if they’re true blind spots. That’s why you need to be involved in a mastermind group or a hot seat-type event. You’ve got to be around other people who are doing the business just like you, who can see your blind spots and point them out to you. This alone could transform your life and business.

What is your end game? Do you know? Do you have a clear picture of what it is you’re after and how you’re going to get to it? Too many people slave and work without know why. This question will reveal your why. It’s the “why” that keeps you motivated and moving forward. Find out what your end game is.

What is your legacy going to be when you leave this world? What are you going to leave behind when you die? Are you going to leave behind a solid reputation? A legacy of generosity toward your family? A business that can continue to serve others when you’re gone?

What legacy are you living right now? What do people know you for? Mark’s known as the “deal maker” (the DM after his name). What are you known for? This question will reveal to you what you are doing and what changes you should make to do even more. You want to know the answers to these so that you can move yourself ahead.

Don’t miss listening to the episode as Mark expands on each of these powerful questions and tells you what it’s going to take for you to change your answers for the better.

Episode 40 – You’ve got to conquer fear if you’re going to be a successful real estate investor

Fear will kill you and cripple your future. You’ve got to learn how to overcome it.

Mark’s hanging out in Palm Beach preparing for a trip to Las Vegas as he records this episode. He’s also working on almost 40 deals right now but he’s taking the time out to talk to you about the monster that holds back so many people – FEAR. If you don’t conquer fear in the various ways it crops up in your life, you’ll always be on the down-side of life. Fear is all about your mindset, which is something you can control.

Your mind will talk you out of things instead of talking you into things. And you’re in the real estate investing business to get “in” to things – you’re IN-vesting, not OUT-vesting. You’ve got to have the strength to overcome fear and take steps into the deals that can really move you forward.

It’s your past problems and past experiences that hold you back. You think you’ve never done it before so you won’t be able to do it this time. There’s nothing true to that at all. The past has nothing to do with the present or the future except that it will hold you back from accomplishing more than you ever have.

If you’re not doing deals, you’re not a real estate investor. You have to be putting deals together consistently, and you have to push past the fear in order to do that. The fear will do nothing but keep you from making great gains in your life and business. You’ve got to get your mind into a rapid growth stage, a place where you can see the potential instead of the problems and take action on that potential. Your mind is the only thing that is holding you back, and fear resides in your mind. When your mind expands, the minds of others around you expand. You begin to see changes in your world, not just in yourself.

Ask yourself this question: “How can I accomplish 10 years worth of business in the next 6 months?” That question will push you outside your comfort zone and get you thinking beyond the fear. You’ll have to break down that dream into practical action steps that you can implement to move forward in spite of the fear.

OUTLINE OF THIS EPISODE

  • Many deals going on, one for $3 million.
  • The importance of talking yourself INTO deals instead of OUT of deals.
  • Fear is always there, pulling you back. But you can learn to harness the feeling and move forward.
  • Everything you do is based on numbers, not feelings. Fear is a feeling you have to overcome.
  • The only thing that’s holding you back is your mind, your beliefs.
  • Mark’s invitation to the upcoming Deal-A-Thon
  • A powerful question to help you get outside the fear-zone and into the action zone.

Episode 39 – HOW TO GET MOTIVATED SELLERS POURING INTO YOUR REAL ESTATE MACHINE

Getting motivated sellers with legitimate deals coming in every day is not an easy thing.

But in this episode Mark is going to show you what should happen daily in order to get those kinds of deals flooding into your real estate business so that you can be successful every single day and live the life that you’ve always wanted.

Much of it comes through systems and Mark’s going to break down a lead generation and contact system today that will revolutionize your business. Mark talks about systems all the time and there’s a reason; they are vital to rolling your business forward in a big way.

In order to get motivated sellers with good properties into your funnel, the first question you need to ask is “How much money do you want to make?” Understanding that is where you begin to be able to understand what kind of deals you need to be doing and how many you need to be doing every week. It’s reverse engineering. Starting with your financial goal, you simply divide by 12 and find the number of motivated seller deals you need to close every month. For sake of illustration, Mark’s picking the number of a million dollars a year.

Going big time with your real estate business requires you to crunch the number so that you know the exact steps you need to take to get to that goal. It’s simple math and applied action. That’s what fills your funnel with motivated sellers. You can map out the plan for how you’re going to reach your financial goal when you know those numbers.

The next step is to break down that monthly number into a weekly number. That tells you how many leads you need to get every week, which in turn tells you how many direct response mailers you need to send out every single week, without fail. Do you see how it’s a system that fills up your real estate investment funnel? It’s math and action. Math and action. A system that makes your goal achievable in a big way through diligent daily effort.

Virtual Real Estate Investing – the real scoop – Episode 38

Mark’s kicking back with a cigar in Palm Beach, ready to give you the low-down on the reality of virtual real estate investing.

The facebook post that started it all…

A recent Facebook post drew a lot of attention when Mark commented on what makes a true “virtual investor.”

Virtual real estate investing is a new thing and Mark is one of the first people who went virtual. He’s living in Palm Beach but closing deals in other places, like Ohio. He’s able to do what he wants, where he wants, while still doing business at incredible levels just as he’s always done it. That’s what “virtual” provides. It’s the freedom you can have in your lifestyle while still doing great work that builds your business.

Everything to close a real estate deal can be done virtually, long-distance, in a way that never requires you to go to a closing or walk into a title company. It’s not that it’s a bad thing to go to a closing. Mark loves that aspect of the deal – meeting people and getting relationships to grow. But he’s not been to a closing since 2006, because he doesn’t have to and because he doesn’t need to. Mark has learned how to leverage other people and the power of a team to make his own lifestyle exactly what he wants while still making the deals happen.

Don’t misunderstand; virtual work still includes hard work. It’s not about being lazy or having nothing to do. It’s about working smarter instead of harder and creating the life you want. Mark has his business set so that it works with him or without him. There’s a team in place, a system that keeps working regardless of whether Mark is present or whether he answers his phone or not. He’s able to live spontaneously, to live the life of his dreams because he’s set up the systems and team to make it happen.

Mark’s sharing with you today because he wants you to reassess the things you’re doing to see how productive you’re really being and what you can do to make your lifestyle goals clearer and more achievable. Listen in. This is good stuff you have to understand.

3 Amateur mistakes and how to avoid them (and profit from them) – episode 37

It’s 2015 and Mark’s back with powerful Real Estate mentoring advice.

3 AMATEUR real estate mistakesOn today’s episode he’s revealing 3 of the most common amateur mistakes he sees in the business of real estate investors and teach you how to avoid them and profit from them.

PLUS, Mark’s going to teach you how to take your dreams and turn them into the kind of actions that will bring those dreams into reality. Most big dreamers work far too small. They keep everything in their own lap, unwilling to pass along vital aspects of their business to other people who can help them accelerate it into the stratosphere. Keeping it all on your own plate is too small, it’s too limiting. You can’t get high level results if you don’t work in high level ways. That means building a reliable, competent, high level team and a high level system for that team to work.

Mark’s able to do this no matter where he is in the world, no matter what’s happening in his life, and no matter what’s going on in the world. No push-button system is going to do all the real work that has to be done for your business to grow. You can’t be managing real estate all the time, you need to be managing people. It’s those people that will move your business forward.

That means you’ll have to find people to take on the specific roles you need – sales managers who can build sales teams, detail-oriented people who can handle your administration and paperwork, graphic artists who can create the copy and images that will sell your business for you. You don’t have to bring them on full time or even part time. You can start out doing it on a case-by-case business. Stop dreaming big and playing small. Take the action steps that will move your big dream forward.

Then Mark’s going to reveal the 3 amateur mistakes many real estate investors make.

  • Trying to sell instead of engaging and extracting.
  • Leaving a potential deal without a signed contract. You don’t have a chance of making any money until a contract is signed.
  • Continuing to call a potential buyer with more and more questions. Take your time to figure out all the questions and ask them all at once.

Finally, Mark’s personal invitation to the upcoming Hot Seat Event.

OUTLINE OF TODAY’S SHOW

  • Are you dreaming big but playing small? Mark’s advice on how to get out of that place.
  • The importance of building a team that works for you.
  • 3 Amateur things, how to fix them, and how to profit from them.
  • The value of being real in every interaction.
  • The power of learning to engage and extract.

A no-money-down deal from Craigslist that anyone can do – details revealed – episode 36.

This information-rich episode is sure to blow your mind as Mark reveals some basic real estate investing mindsets that can propel anyone to success.

CRAIGSLIST REAL ESTATE DEALS

Mark’s had a great holiday break, spending time with family… and he’s learned a lot even when he wasn’t “working.” The time with other people has demonstrated the importance of mindset in new ways. In this episode Mark’s going to tell you how to listen to the conversation going on around you to hear the negative, victim mindsets that people have, and show you how to use that to drive you forward toward success.

As an example, Mark’s going to share the details of a new deal he’s working on; it’s less than 48 hours old. This deal came from a Craigslist ad that Mark saw. He called, talked with the guy for 45 minutes, and is putting together a deal where he’ll get paid to buy two properties, make cash from the sale of one of them, and build a duplex on the other to make even more money for himself; all with no money down. The cool thing about this deal is that anyone could do it. Seriously, you could do this deal if you knew how to think about it and had the right mindset to pull it off. It’s not that hard.

Here’s a recap of what you’ll hear in episode 36 of The Real Estate Power Hour show:

  • Mark’s last few weeks – a recap of family events and exciting business deals.
  • Marks’ word on the importance of family in a world of business responsibilities.
  • “Life is too short to be living someone else’s dream,” a quote by Hugh Hefner – with Mark’s thoughts.
  • The power of habit-based goals – not New Year’s resolutions.
  • The first step to becoming better is to discover what you absolutely suck at.
  • Your invitation to the upcoming “Hot Seat” event in Vegas, February 2-3, 2015.
  • A no-cash craigslist deal Mark’s working on that anyone could do – how it happened and how it’s going to go down.

The Lamborghini goal setter – and how he built a thriving real estate investing business – Episode 35

400imagelamboToday Mark has a special guest to introduce to you – another Mark – Mark Ferguson, the Lamborghini goal-setter!!

Listen in as your host asks Mark some insightful questions about how he’s built his real estate business to a massive level using internet-based techniques.

But before launching into that Mark asks Mark (boy, this is going to be tricky) about a few key things that have to be in place to really scale things to another level.

FIRST – Learning when it’s time to bring on additional help to make your business run smoothly and to free yourself to do the really important things. Mark reveals how he knew when it was time to hire an assistant and how he went about passing along work to them in a systematic, patient way. He also talks a bit about using VA workers in your business for administrative tasks.

SECOND – Learning the local market where you’re working: How do you learn about the market, what role do local real estate agents play, and how do you go about working the market in an intelligent way? Those are all covered in this section of the conversation. It’s worth gold if you’ll just apply it.

Then the conversation turns to how Mark has used his website to generate massive amounts of traffic and new relationships. You can check out his site at www.InvestFourMore.com. Mark shares powerful articles that come from the trenches of his hard-learned experience and how you can apply his lessons to your business. It’s a powerful, positive, can-do blog telling you the practical things you can do to advance your business today. One of his most recent articles tells you why it’s important to get started in your investing while you’re young. Mark’s top articles to read are

How to find an investor-friendly real estate agent

How much money do Real Estate Agents make?

Buy rental properties while you’re young

How I was able to buy a Lamborghini through my real estate business

Then Mark shares why he decided to buy it as an incentive for his hard work. It’s an incredible story about setting goals and working hard to achieve them as Mark worked hard and accomplished his goal within a year. Opportunities are abundant if you are willing to set goals, work toward them, and not give up. Develop tunnel vision to get to the things you want. Mark suggests that you decide what your focus is going to be and focus on that 100%. 20% effort in a number of efforts won’t get the same results as an intense focus in one area. Get out there. Do it.

SUMMARY OF THE EPISODE

How you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick – here’s episode 34!

How you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick – here’s episode 34!

Could it be true that you’re killing your success, ruining relationships, and getting the short end of the stick?

If you’re the person Mark describes in this episode – it’s likely you are.

It’s the week after Thanksgiving and Mark’s just returned to beautiful Palm Beach Florida and took the opportunity to fly his sister and her kids down to spend some time with Uncle Mark and his family. How can he do it? Because he’s got his business organized and on auto-pilot. The business goes on as usual, even though Mark is not hanging out in an office somewhere.

It’s an example of how you should always be learning… learning to minimize your effort and maximize your business all that the same time. In every interaction and conversation you need to be listening for what there is that you can learn and apply to your life and business. In everything you do, you should be thinking, “Is this going to get me closer to my goal or further away?” If it’s further, you don’t do it and if it’s closer, you do it.

That’s how you learn day after day.

When you learn like that, you build the confidence in yourself to go out and make your goals happen. You don’t waste the time of important people by asking them to give you a “deal” and help you get started. You learn what they have to say by listening, then you go out and apply it yourself.

It’s about working smarter, not harder.

You are killing your success, ruining relationship, and getting the short end of the stick if you’re trying to lean on the “experts,” trying to get them to help you , when you should be helping yourself by stepping up your game and applying what you learn day by day.

The main thing you learn is that you are the only one who can control you or determine your destiny. You don’t blame others for your failure. You don’t lean on others for your success. You make things happen yourself by learning, applying what you learn, and determining your destiny yourself.

Listen to the show to hear more about this topic and hear Mark’s thoughts on what smart people understand about money.

TOPICS MARK COVERS IN THIS EPISODE

  • Mark flies his sister and her kids down to FL for a visit.
  • Mark’s example of why you need to always be learning.

One step to explode your  income and reduce your stress

keep it simple

Keep it simple!

You can implement it immediately and watch your business take off.

In this episode Mark breaks down THE key to putting your business and life activities into a whole new level that will skyrocket your income and reduce your stress at the same time. The beauty of it is that you can implement this immediately.

What’s the key? Keep things simple.

Real estate investors and business people in general tend to overcomplicate things. Yes, you need systems that work. But you don’t need systems that have so many steps and so many details that it’s killing you to pull it off. If it can’t fit on one piece of paper, it’s probably over-complicated. Pare it down. Streamline it. Keep it simple, and watch your stress level go down while your profits go up.

Another simple way to ramp up your business is by elevating your business partners. When somebody agrees to do a deal with you, you work the deal, and it comes out great – don’t stop there. Talk to that person about the potential of what you could do together. Tell them you want to more deals next month, and you want them to be involved in every one. You’ll challenge them to step up their game while creating a relationship and opportunity for yourself at the same time. You don’t need another investor. You’ve just created a long-term investor out of a relationship you already have.

You can also simplify through outsourcing – a topic Mark is going to cover on a future podcast. Or you can do it my looking over the activities that are consuming your time right now and eliminating the ones that aren’t necessary. Chances are, there are a lot of those lurking in your daily work flow. Take the time. Look over your activities, and get rid of the things that are not producing the results.

The coaching tips you’ll receive in this episode are all about money, and your money mindset. Of course, Mark talks about money a lot on the Real Estate Power Hour show, but not like this. This is about the mindset that should exist behind your pursuit of money.

Why are you trying to gain money? What is the benefit that will come of it for you and for those around you? Do you know? Have you taken the time to answer those vital questions?

When you hear the word “money,” what emotion runs through you? Fear? Anger? Bitterness? Insecurity? Many people think that pursuing money is bad or wrong. Do you believe that? Is that part of what’s holding you back? Today Mark is going to challenge that mindset because it’s not about the money, it’s about the way that your life can be leveraged for greater benefit to your family, to charities, to those who work for you, and to those around you.

In this episode Mark challenges you to take a long hard look at your money mindset because what you think and what you understand about money dramatically impacts not only the way you deal with money but also the way you head toward financial success.

Listen in as Mark talks about the money mindset that can propel you to almost guaranteed success. He’s going to address motivation, obstacles, and new ways of thinking that will help you move ahead in your business pursuits so that you can improve the quality of your own life and the lives of the people around you.

Episode outline:

  • How do you feel when you hear the word “money?”
  • Your mindset about money will either hurt or help you and others.
  • You can develop a right money mindset to change your ability to provide for your family and bless others.
  • Asking yourself specific questions to get new results.
  • Begin thinking and dreaming bigger.
  • Learn to become specific about what will set you free financially.
  • How mindset impacts the reality of what you do in real estate investing.
  • The impact of mentoring on developing the right mindset.
  • It’s not about the money, it’s about the dream, the passion, the purpose.
  • Stop chasing the money and start helping people.
  • The journey is the fun part of the process.
  • Are you allowing other people or circumstances to limit your dreams?
  • You can change other people’s lives by reaching for your dreams.
