INVESTTHIS EP 76: Generating Cash Flow with Note Investing

Any investor who wants to earn monthly cash flow can do so by purchasing cash flowing notes without having to deal with toilets, trash, termites, and tenants. -Dave Franecki

I did a show a couple of weeks ago that covered note investing, and the feedback was phenomenal. That’s when I decided to do a deep dive, with a 30+ year investing veteran, and Note Investor of the Year award recipient, Dave Franecki.

Dave’s range of experiences includes almost every facet of the real estate industry, including REO, Flip/Fix, and loan officer. Because of his expertise, he is a sought-after speaker, author, sales trainer, Sr. Note Buyer at Capstone Capital and President of the Note Investor’s Forum Meet-up. Dave has won many awards, one most recent being Note Investor of the Year in 2018.

On today’s show, we deep dive on note investing, which includes how to use your 401K, how to analyze the equity, and why performing notes are the way to go. We also discussed some other interesting topics. Everyone is talking about a potential turn in the market, and Dave provides a fascinating insight on how to predict a downturn. Additionally, we discuss steps to take to protect yourself in a down market and still have cash flowing in.

There are many different ways to scale your business. Today’s guest, Rafael Cortez, an organizational psychologist, has done so building his own systems.

Rafael started out as a firefighter at the age of 19. On the side, Rafael started a non-emergency medical transportation company in 2006, built it and sold it in 2014 with a full fleet and over 40 employees. During this time, Rafael dabbled in real estate investing and went full time after he sold his business. Today, with over 600 deals negotiated, Rafael is the Owner Broker for Pulse Realty & Associates and executes investments through Pulse Capital.

With 16 years in the industry and over 1000 deals in the books, Melissa Johnson knows what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. As CEO of Danny Buys Houses, Melissa balances her creative, design side with the practicalities of running a real estate investing company. She is an official member of the Forbes Real Estate Council, NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners), and contributor to the Flipping Junkie blog. Concurrently, she enjoys sharing her unique perspective on running a successful real estate investing business based on real-life experiences and actual results.

Melissa has a creative mind and has so many ideas that she carries a book around with her to write them all down. Currently, her latest plan is coming to fruition. She is presently putting together a Mastermind with Don Costa, which she is excited to announce soon.

On today’s episode, Melissa provides an inside look into how she started in corporate America but enjoyed her father-in-law’s lifestyle as a real estate investor. Deciding to take the leap, she and her husband Danny began flipping as a side hustle. With lots of self-education, a mentor and some successes under their belt, they went into flipping full-time.

Melissa shares how she has built her teams and some valuable lessons she has learned along the way. Additionally, she tells an interesting story about how they made it through the downturn in 2006, which is applicable for today as the fed just cut rates for the first time since 2008!
