Getting into Real Estate at the tail end of the 2008 crash

  • “…if I can figure out real estate at the bottom, at the shittiest time, when all we do short sales and foreclosures when the good times come around, I’ll be living like fish in water, ‘cause by that time I’m an expert. That is exactly what happened.” (24:43)

The value of Social Media

  • “You’re selling yourself and you’re selling your services. So the faster you can implement those changes to your account, the more followers you’re going to have.” (31:26)
  • “You want eyeballs on your account. We want to be an option.” (32:07)

Building business through Social Media

  • “So with the millennials, you need to exist while they are doing this, you need to pop up. If you don’t pop up, you don’t exist to them. So that’s the whole goal.” (32:22)
  • “If you are trading your time for something, eventually you’re going to run out of time. So in order to make money, you have to charge more. You’ll have to sell a higher-ticket item. Or you have to make more time and we can’t make more time.” (33:11)

Getting motivation and inspiration

  • “I believe the universe talks to you. It will show you what you need to hear. It will guide you where you need to go. It will show you how you’re going to get there. I do believe that you need to know where you want to go. You need to know where you are and you need to know where you want to go and by when.” (40:52)
  • “The universe is your built-in GPS. We all have it, from A to Z. But you need to know what A is, where are you, and you need to know what Z is, where you want to be and by when, and it’s going to guide you there.” (41:17)
  • “…you can’t stay who you are and expect a different level of life.” (41:37)

Believing in yourself

  • “Your own internal voice has to be louder than that little voice on your shoulder. You have to know who you are. As soon as you believe in yourself, there’s nothing anybody can say that you can or cannot do. You’re going to go and do it anyway.” (42:26)
  • “I believe whatever I set my mind to, if my internal gut feeling towards me, I can do it also. I believe God wouldn’t put an idea in your head if he doesn’t believe that you already have the skills that it takes to get it done. Otherwise, he would have given that idea to somebody else.” (42:45)
  • “If that idea popped up in your head, it is the universe. It’s God. It is the Mother Nature. It is a higher power. Whatever you call it, it is given it to you because you have the skills to make it happen. Now, do you have the guts to make it happen and go for it?” (43:02)
