Let Us Hear From You
“Big ideas happen when people build on each other’s ideas.”
~ DAVID M. KELLEY, founder and CEO, IDEO
Real Estate Investing is a lonely business. Yes, we’re with people each and every day, if we’re doing it right. Yes, we’re on the phone with buyers/sellers and potential lenders every minute of every hour. But, when it comes to people who think like us, and understand what we go through – it’s lonely out there! What is a real estate investor to do?
* Consider starting a sub-group of your existing REIA or a REIA if you need one in your area. Helping others to be successful can make you more successful. You almost always learn more when you’re teaching.
* Network with other investors – so many investors think of competition is negative. Seriously, there is enough out there for everyone. Call up the other investors in your area (do a Google search, look on Craig’s List, write down those “we buy signs” numbers). Find out what others are doing and see how you can collaberate together.
* Start a mastermind group. A mastermind group is where like minded individuals come together to solve problems and help each other move forward to the next level. A smaller group of 8-12 is best so you can each focus on helping each other.
In our coaching we are continually talking with individuals who need/want someone to bounce ideas off of, particularly in their local market. A mastermind group can be great for that. I belong to a mastermind group of investors on a local level and a group of investors that are spread out all over the U.S. Both have there purpose for me in my business and both are extremely valuable to me.
Tell us who you bounce ideas off of? What do you do when you’re at a stand still in your business? What if you’re unsure of a deal – what then? Let’s hear how you all solve these daily challenges.
