My Business Dream Team

As a real estate investor I have created a business dream  team to help me achieve my goals. Now I teach real estate investors and other entrepreneurs how to do the same. My new program, “, “The Ultimate Guide to Building Your Business Dream Team™”,  is designed to help real estate investors and other entrepreneurs learn how to focus on the things that they do best and delegate the rest. This program will help entrepreneurs be less transactional and more transformational.

In my book, “The Book On Investing™” , I write about how I am able to buy and sell properties, sight unseen, and make handsome profits. I am able to leverage the skills and expertise of my powerful business dream team to accomplish much more that I could do on my own.
Below is the process that I used to buy and sell my first real estate investment property.

Dream Team Member #1 – Marketing Person. This real estate deal was a property that was located 300 miles from where I live. A motivated seller contacted me after receiving info from my marketing firm. I contracted out to a marketing firm. That  gave me the best return and response rate.
Dream Team Member #2– Real Estate Agent. I immediately put the house under contract. The contract was generated from my automated contract writing system. I then located a local Real Estate Agent. I added this Real Estate Agent to my business dream team to get comparable sales in that neighborhood. In addition, this Real Estate Agent continues to provide me with real estate investment leads.
Dream Team Member #3- Property Inspector. From the Real Estate Agent’s contacts, I was able to add a local property inspector and handyman. The inspector reviewed the house and provided me with repair estimates. This property inspector is now a trusted partner of my business dream team. I use him frequently to inspect and repair other houses.
Dream Team Member #4– Property Buyer- Through my property inspector I was introduced to another real estate investor who buys properties with cash. I was able to sell this property to this cash buyer.  The cash buyer is now an integral part of my business dream team.
Dream Team Member #5– Closing Attorney. Through my contacts with the property buyer, I was able to make contact with a local Real Estate Settlement Attorney. This Attorney handled all of legal issue associated with the purchasing and selling of this property. The attorney handled the title search, escrow management, and all of the legal paper work.
Because of the work I put into building a team, the purchase and sale of this property went forward without a hitch. I used this experience to develop a blueprint for constructing a dynamic business dream team that can be adapted to any business.

How I Learned to Build My Business Dream Team

Rescue Impossible, Nightmare Hell!

Some of my favorite television shows are Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, Bar Rescue and Hotel Impossible. These shows are so popular because people like you and I enjoy all the drama associated with these businesses on the verge of failure and how the experts like Chef Gordon Ramsay come in and save the day.

 Although these shows are very entertaining, they also teach me some important lessons on business: You have to work on your business instead of in your business. Otherwise you have a job rather than a business.

Most of the business owners on these shows suffer from the typical bad business disease that other business owners have, they try to do everything themselves. On one recent episode of Kitchen Nightmares, the restaurant owner was the manager, the chef, the accountant, the cleaning person, and the host. No wonder, his business was failing; he was trying to do everything and was good at nothing.   

The business owner had not learned to delegate! I had the same problem when I started my business, but quickly learned from my mistakes. Now I have the time and money to enjoy the fruits of my business. For example, I can enjoy eating lunch at Chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in Las Vegas! My business continues to operate when I am not there because of “The Business Dream Team™” I have put in place. 

Learning how to build a dynamic business dream team is the difference between having your business run on automatic pilot and one where you have to be there in order for it to run.  When we learned the secrets of how to build “The Business Dream Team™”, our business took off like a rocket.  We can now spend more time on marketing and building our business while enjoying the fruits of our business.

In an effort to help our clients achieve greater levels of success, we decided to create a program to show other business owners how to build a dynamic business dream team. The program is called, “The Ultimate Guide to Building Your Business Dream Team™.”

This program is designed to help you select, hire and manage your business dream team to help you grow your business. It includes a step by step guide, a checklist, and other modules to help you reach new levels of success.

So, don’t work in your business, get the help you need to create the life of your dreams to make your business a success. Visit us at www.mybizdreamteam.com to learn more.

 

 

Growing Wealth in 2016

Growing Your Wealth
Growing Your Wealth

To grow the wealth necessary to live the life of your dreams, you will need a mechanism to do so. It doesn’t matter if your dream is having luxuries beyond your wildest imagination or helping out family members or the local charity of your choice. You need the money and assets to help you accomplish your dreams and goals.

In this New Year, learning how to be wealthy in today’s economy is as much “art” as it is “science” – but both are learnable. It’s not a mystery, and the fact that it’s been repeated throughout history, over and over, in every culture testifies to the fact that yes, indeed, you can learn how to get rich. Sitting on your couch playing video games is probably not going to make you rich, but digging ditches for the next 50 years probably won’t either. So how can you become rich?

1.) Grow Wealth: Invest in Real Estate

This is my favorite way to get rich! Buying real estate has been one of the surest ways to get rich since before there was money. As you know everyone needs it and, as Mark Twain so eloquently stated, “they’re not making it anymore.” There are numerous paths to wealth in real estate, but it generally revolves around buying property that brings in more income than it costs to own, and holding on to that property until the prices go up.

 You can start building your real estate empire right now by reading my book The Book On Investing:The Ultimate Guide for the Savvy Investor.

2.) Grow Wealth: Invest in the Stock Market

The stock market can be an incredible source of wealth for you and your family. There are a lot of different ways to invest in the stock market. From penny stocks to mutual funds to options and more – there is enough to easily make your head spin. If stocks are going to be your chosen path to getting rich – don’t simply throw your money at random companies. Take time to fully investigate the kind of investing you want to do and follow other investors within that niche to learn how they have made their fortunes.

3.) Grow Wealth: Start an Internet Business

Many internet entrepreneurs are building pretty substantial wealth through online websites and web companies. One of the most significant benefits for starting an online business is that barrier to entry is much lower, as you don’t need buildings, employees, merchandise, or other expensive items to begin – just a computer and some ingenuity. To find out more about starting or building and internet business go to My Biz Dream Team.

4.) Start a Traditional Business

Although a lot of the shopping in the world is moving online, brick and mortar businesses are still the cornerstone of our economic system.  For example, you could move to an area where the economy is thriving (North Dakota) and start a business to serve the oil and gas workers in that area.  Building wealth through a traditional business is built by selling either services or products to consumers or other businesses.

5.) Grow Wealth: Save Your Money

Finally, there is the good old fashion way to get rich: slowly. Save your money, each and every month, and you’ll grow wealthy just by principle. For example, if you make the average American salary, around $50,000 per year, and can live frugally to save half of your income – you could bury your cash under your mattress for 40 years and retire with a cool million bucks.

Or, if you took that money and invested in real estate, earning an average return of 12% per year, you could have $26,389,054.18 after 40 years.  This is why I choose investing in real estate rather saving my way to riches.

Conclusion:

 These are the top five ways that you can use to build wealth in today’s economy.

Do You Want to Be Wealthy When You Grow Up?

What do you want to be when you grow up?” is a question that you become accustomed to hearing as a child from adults.  Many of us were annoyed by that question, but we admit that we have asked many children that question ourselves.

 Today, let’s focus on you! Now that you are grown up, “What do you want to be?”

Do you want to be wealthy? Or are you worried about not being broke? If your focus is on not being broke, you will never be wealthy!  By focusing on “not being broke” you attract “brokenness” into your life and all the negativity associated with it. 

 Research shows that you have over 60,000 thoughts a day and that 95% of them are the same thoughts that you had yesterday.  80% of those thoughts are negative—wealth robbing, happiness robbing thoughts.  You must release those negative “brokenness” thoughts and replace them with positive “wealth building” thoughts.   Then you can be what you want to be!

As you begin the New Year, think about the wealthy, abundant, and happy life that you want to live.

Do You Have the Right Financial Personality Type To Be A Successful Real Estate Investor?

Have you ever thought about your financial personality type? I hadn’t either until I read a recent article.  In the article, author Casey Bond, uses the well known Myers- Briggs personality traits test and applies it to finance and investing.  Her thesis is that your financial personality trait can be a determining factor for your success in money management skills and in investing. Below is the chart of financial personality types. What type are you?

Debtor (D) / Saver (S)

Debtor: If you fit this category, you tend to borrow money to make major purchases rather than saving up the necessary cash. This personality type tends to always owe money either on credit cards, student loans, or mortgages.  On the other hand, if you are a debtor, you tend to also use your debt strategically; borrowing money to take advantage of high-yield opportunities that will pay off later.

Saver: Savers usually do not like to owe anyone money and would prefer to own things outright, even if that means living according to a strict budget.  If you are this type, you tend to cut expenses to ensure that you have a positive cash flow, and go without when you run low on money. Savers ensure they have money for now and for the future, investing with the goal of remaining financially comfortable at all times.

Aggressive (A) / Conservative (C)

Aggressive: This personality type uses an aggressive investment approach to look for earned income.  If you are this type, you tend to favor high risk, high-yield funds. You are also very open to new or uncommon investment opportunities, such as futures, commodities, currency trading, and real estate investing.

Conservative: This personality type includes individuals who are very risk-averse and generally manage their finances so that they can never lose money.  If you are a conservative investor, you tend to place a large proportion of your income into savings accounts, a mortgage, and low-risk private investments or company pensions.

Planning (P) / Impulsive (I)

Planning:  The planning personality type tends to seek out opportunities to save money and to take strategic steps to do so within their household budget.  Many planners are great at looking at the future and seeing what needs to be done today to reach their financial goals.  If you are a planner, you also tend to be very good at identifying and prioritizing your various short-term and long-term financial goals.

Impulsive: Impulsive types often engage in deep thinking about their financial lifestyles. If you are impulsive, you tend to have a great strength that others don’t in terms of being able to make quick decisions about spending. For example, you might buy a house before anyone else makes a bid or snap up an investment before the price goes up.  Impulsive types also tend to advocate using money for pleasure, like taking vacations and enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Giving (G) / Hoarder (H)

Giving: The giving financial personality type is driven by a desire to take care of the people or causes they love.  If you are this personality type, then your primary quest is to find ways that you can serve others.  Regardless of the amount that you have saved, your level of income, or the opportunities presented to you, you tend to find that there is always more that you can give to those you care about most.

Hoarder: In comparison, a hoarder personality tends not to like to part with money.  If you are this personality type, money is a resource to be protected, treasured and analyzed on a regular basis. If you are a hoarder you are driven by fear of financial loss, thus you avoid situations that require parting with your money.  Spending and lending money to your friends and family are behaviors in which hoarders rarely engage.

In Conclusion

In case you were wondering, I took the test and it turns out that I am APIG.  APIG means: Aggressive, Planning, Impulsive, Giving.  I am aggressive when it comes to investing with an ever watchful eye on return on investment. I always plan my strategy for investing and try to always think about the future. I am sometimes impulsive in my decision making as I believe in the speed of implementation. I am also giving. I believe in helping others to achieve their goals. I am always giving back to others of my time, knowledge, and resources to make a better world.

Tell me your financial personality type. Do you agree or disagree with the assessment? If you want to continue this discussion, then comment on this post.
