#INVESTTHIS EP 43: How a Virtual Assistant Can Help You Grow Your Business

The best decision I have made in a very long time was hiring a virtual assistant. I understand better than most that it’s hard for entrepreneurs to let go of the reigns and the money. But after you listen to this episode, you might just change your mind.

Natalie Webster, my virtual assistant, has made a definite impact on my bottom line. Her career started out with a dare to join the military, which she professes to be the best decision of her life. After Natalie served her term, she started her entrepreneurial journey as a property manager which led to her becoming a real estate agent. But with four children, she needed more of a work/life balance and took up helping entrepreneurs with their businesses. Lucky for me, she dedicated herself to working solely for me.

In this week’s episode, Natalie and I discuss that assistants are not just for making plane reservations, as they can do so much more if you let them. Natalie also gives tips on what to look for in an assistant, and how they can help grow your business. We also talk about how to instill loyalty and dedication from anyone that works for you.

#INVESTTHIS EP 42: How To Find Success After Failure

To find success after failure seems rather daunting, but for Damion Lupo, it was a life changer. Born with an entrepreneurial spirit, Damion started his first business at age 11. Over the last quarter century, he’s started and owned more than 40 different companies, with more than a dozen real estate investment and development companies. In 2008, Damion lost it all and had to start over. The biggest lesson he learned was that his self-worth was too intertwined with his net worth, and he sought to change that. Today Damion works with change agents to disrupt Wall Streets manipulative system of enriching itself at the expense of its clients. He’s on a mission to empower Main Street through tools and teachings of financial transformation.

Today’s show is inspirational and informative. Damion tells his story about how he reinvented himself and his business model after his financial collapse. He also talks about how patience is more than just a virtue in business, and why it’s essential. Enhanced Qualified Retirement Plan investing is his focus right now, and he explains the benefits of outsmarting Wall Street. You won’t want to miss his inside information on the changes that are coming in mid-2019 and his advice on thriving during this downturn.

#INVESTTHIS EP 41: Starting Your Own Business from Idea to Completion

“Increasing numbers of people are coming to realize that corporate America has changed. Job security is largely a relic, benefits are not nearly what they used to be, and starting your own business is looking a lot less risky.” –The Balance Small Business

Trevor Mauch learned about entrepreneurship from his parents. Through self-discovery, he began his journey into real estate working for a firm doing marketing.

Through years of hard work, and perfecting his skill set by starting many of his own companies, he came up with the idea for Carrot. Today Trevor is the CEO of InvestorCarrot and knows a thing or two about inbound marketing and generating leads online in the real estate industry.

On today’s episode, Trevor discusses how he came up with the idea for Carrot and provides expert advice and actionable tips on starting your own business.

#INVESTTHIS EP 40: Perfecting Your Sales Process

“…Lots of entrepreneurs are simply not natural sales people. The skills that you need to start a business and pursue a strategic vision are not always the same as the characteristics you need to close deals.” –Entrepreneur

John Martinez is the Founder and CEO of Midwest Revenue Group. John wasn’t born a sales guy; he worked hard, learned a lot and plowed through towards his success. John worked his way up in corporate America and then found his niche when he transitioned into sales training. Today, John helps successful businesses go further faster. Midwest Revenue Group’s sales training provides companies with a proven, practical roadmap for improving their closing ratio and increasing sales and profits. The process, in and of itself, helps business professionals differentiate themselves from their competition when selling.

Today, John and I sit down to discuss how he started his business, which he wasn’t 100% sure about, and explains why that is a good thing. He also talks about the most significant hurdle he had to get over to move towards entrepreneurial success, which is something everyone struggles with at one point or another. He also provides expert advice on how to run a one-person show, as well as how to scale your business when it’s time to expand. And of course, there are multiple nuggets of wisdom as to how to become better at sales.
