Investing is just one step in the path to time and money freedom.

That’s why we have created the 3-step Business Owner’s Cash Flow System.  It’s your roadmap to take you from just surviving, to a life of significance, purpose, and financial freedom.

The Beginner's Guide to Buying Your First Property, with Jeff Schechter
  • Once you have the cash, pick a property that makes sense, then pull the trigger.
  • Have a holistic approach – more important than analyzing the numbers, know who you are doing business with and the reputation of the person you are buying from.
  • Price and numbers don’t tell the whole story – there is always variance from the numbers on the pro forma.
  • Work with someone who has the wisdom of experience, who can buy in volume and get better deals.
  • A great turnkey provider will provide full transparency, before and after pictures, the scope of work, current condition with third-party inspection, and checklists of what was done.
  • Cash-on-cash returns are a benchmark, but they don’t tell the whole story – instead, recognize the five areas of asset build-up that make real estate an IDEAL investment: Income, Depreciation, Equity build-up, Appreciation, Leverage.
  • Take responsibility for your self-education.
  • Revel in the experience and accept it as a learning experience – there is no better teacher than experience, don’t judge every nuance as good or bad.
  • With the experience under your belt, don’t stop. Look for ways to scale and develop a performing portfolio to create financial independence.  Replicate good investments.  Put together your cash for the next investment. 
  • Never stop learning.
  • If you’re looking for perfection, don’t get into real estate investment.
  • Most importantly, stay in your lane – if you’re a professional or entrepreneur, stay hyper-focused on scaling your business. Then, take your profits, find out how to leverage the professional and invest with them.  That’s how you cut the steep learning curve as you start on your investing journey.
