In Robert Greene’s book Mastery, he writes, “There are two kinds of failure. The first comes from never trying out your ideas because you are afraid, or because you are waiting for the perfect time. This kind of failure you can never learn from, and such timidity will destroy you. The second kind comes from a bold and venturesome spirit. If you fail in this way, the hit that you take to your reputation is greatly outweighed by what you learn. Repeated failure will toughen your spirit and show you with absolute clarity how things must be done.” 

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I want to talk about these two types of failure, how to boldly chase your dreams, and what you can gain from failing. We’ll discuss Henry Ford, how failure can help you grow, and more!

When interviewed about his car production process, Henry Ford said, “I’ve never made a mistake in my life. Never! And neither did you ever make a mistake—or anybody else .For what purpose do you suppose you are living on earth?

Physical rental properties are not the only performing asset that can help you build wealth. Holding paper, also known as seller financing, is a smart way to diversify, bring in cash flow, and create financial freedom. And on the other hand, if you’re looking to acquire real estate, owner financing can be a smart way to make a purchase.

 

Today’s guest, Mark Ross, is the CEO at Good Steward Lending Services, a company that provides solutions to buy, sell, and lend against notes. On today’s show, Mark is starting the ins and outs of holding paper, including the subtleties of the Dodd Frank law, the benefits of owner financing, and how to create a deal that is beneficial for all involved parties.

A lot of new investors often wonder how long it will take them to make back their initial investment on a rental property. However, this is the wrong question to ask. When you become a real estate investor, you’ll want to start thinking of your money as streams of cash, not piles of cash.

Oftentimes, the hardest part of building wealth can be changing your mindset. Many of us have been indoctrinated with false ideas about saving for retirement, the morality of debt, and what it means to purchase your primary residence. But once you can start questioning those ideas and beliefs, you can begin to identify what is true for you, and lay out your own path to financial freedom.

 

Today’s guest, Financial Freedom Academy member Drew, is living proof! While completing the Financial Freedom Academy, Drew and his wife were able to shift their mindsets, get clear about their goals, and purchase 22 rental properties in just one year! On this episode, Drew is sharing his experience as an FFA student, what it’s like to become a successful real estate investor, and his goals for his family business!
