What I learned from Real Estate Investors


In 2009 I enrolled in an intensive real estate investing course by a guy named Tim Taylor. Tim was awesome, and although his course cost a whopping $10,000.00... it was worth every dime.  

I never had anyone in my life who was as driven and determined as Tim was. Tim was laser focused. The man is like a bullet in a suit, and I feel like he really rubbed off on me (I would hope so, when his course cost 10K, lol)! 


Tim understood that the reason he was so successful, was because he had someone show him exactly what to do. Tim was that kind of guy who had SO much motivation and determination, I still feel really fortunate to have been trained by him. Even though I didn't continue in Real Estate (I dropped everything when I learned about this business I'm in now), I found I was able to apply what I'd learned from him, in my current business. And what I learned from Tim was... 



DO NOT QUIT. 
WORK YOUR ASS OFF.
FIND A WAY TO GET IT DONE.

The reason Tim was wildly successful was because he was willing to do the things that other people were not willing to do. 


Tim wasn't afraid of the word "No." If someone told him no, he just went on to the next person, and he could do this 100 times in a row. Tim knew this was a huge key to his wealth, because most people hear the word "no" once or twice, and then they give up. If you are going to be successful in any kind of sales job, you must learn to get used to being told no. A lot. And you have to learn how to KEEP MOVING. 


If you want to be successful, you need to actively seek to learn from people who know how to do what you want to do. You can't expect to be able to just figure it all out yourself.  The most successful people I've ever met are the ones who are continually looking for ways to do things better. They want to learn more, they want to grow, and they want to teach what they know. 


Real Estate Investors have BIG BALLS


Tim wasn't the only real estate investor I was coached by. I also had a lot of coaching by other investors like Dwan Bent Twyford and Bill Twyford (who aren't afraid to knock on doors), Sean Terry (a former marine), and Josh Cantwell (a former financial advisor).


The thing these guys have in common is that they work their butts off, they understand how to duplicate, they love to teach others what they do, and they understand the golden rule: MONEY LOVES SPEED. 


There are far too many people who just do not put enough consistent energy into their business. They start, then stop. Start, then stop. Start, then stop.  This is a great video illustrating how many people treat their business.  I know I've had other businesses in the past, where I've been guilty of this. Have you?




I want to encourage you to work your butt off and become wildly successful. You can be even more successful than me! I am actually taking the slow route, compared to a lot of people in this business. 


Last year I got to talk to a woman who is currently making about 2 million dollars a year, from this business, because she built a huge group. She's been doing this for less than 10 years! She gave me a few really great tips on becoming successful in this field, and I am so grateful that I got a chance to talk to her!


But I have to admit... I am envious of that woman. I'm envious of the fact that she knew about this job, and I didn't. While I was going from job to job, trying to find something that worked for me, she was getting to put all her energy into this job and eventually made a ton of money. I would have dropped everything to go into this business, had someone just told me about it... but nobody did.


On the positive side, because I couldn't see myself ever staying in an office, I decided to get into real estate, and the training I got from that was really helpful to me, to this day : )


A friend told me years ago, that envy is not a bad thing.  People confuse envy with jealousy. Jealousy is a negative emotion that eats away at you, and doesn't do anyone any good. 


Envy, on the other hand, is like fuel. It's like a signal to your brain that you want the same thing that another person has. You're not trying to take something from that person. You're just wanting to raise yourself up to their level.  Envy can keep you going.  Look at it as a good thing!  


Fuel can be found in a lot of things... when you choose to look at it as fuel.
