#INVESTTHIS EP 48: How Improving Your Health is Good for Business

With the New Year, I thought it a good idea to share something different this week. Improving your health, as we all know is important. But, it’s also a fact that it will improve your business. The Center of Creative Leadership’s study found that Executives who exercise are significantly more effective leaders than those who don’t. -Entrepreneur

I am very health-focused, and on today’s show, I have brought my friend, trainer and exercise inspiration, Jacob Holmberg. Jacob knew when he was 18 that he wanted to help people with their health and wellness. He started working for gyms but quickly decided that he wanted his own business. He branched out on his own with 12 students working out in a park. His talent and integrity impressed one of his clients, who decided to invest in him, and CrossFit Blur was born. Today, in his 11th year of training, Jacob and his partner Justin now own two CrossFit Blur gyms in Arizona.

On today’s episode, Jacob and I discuss how getting out of your comfort zone is the most critical step in staying healthy. We also talk about the impact good health has on you and your business, as well as the one habit that will change your health and wellness overall. In addition, Jacob provides inspiration, and practical advice on how to start a new health routine, or how to up your current one.

#INVESTTHIS EP 47: Mortgage Industry Trends for 2019

The mortgage industry, as we know, is pushed and pulled by interest rates. Calvin Schnure, SVP of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts’ recently stated, “The interest rates are keeping demand in check, but it’s not going to push it down. I don’t see the real downside risks people are worried about,”

My guest on today’s show, Bob Wasieko, is the Branch Manager for Geneva Financial. Geneva focuses on first position conventional and government mortgages and has expanded to 42 states and 800 million in annual volume. Bob has been in the business for over 22 years and has dedicated himself to helping families with their mortgage loans. As a result, I have worked with Bob in the past, and I’m so pleased that he can lend us his expertise and unlimited knowledge of the mortgage industry.

During this episode, Bob and I discuss the Dodd-Frank Act, and how it has changed the fundamentals of mortgage lending. Furthermore, he explains the similarities and differences between 2008 and today, and how that is impacting the industry. Bob also provides his insights on where we are in the real estate investment cycle and gives his hypothesis on the trends we will be seeing for the next 5 years.

Think Realty’s highest honor, the 2018 Master Investor of the Year was awarded to Adam Adams. He is in great company in this year’s awards, as Joe Fairless won Multi-Family Investor of the Year. The award program recognizes leaders who positively impact the real estate investing industry.

Adam started investing in real estate in 2005. After repositioning his first apartment community in 2007 (from $2MM to $4MM value in 12 months) as a property manager, Adam bought his first multifamily apartment building. Since then, Adam has founded BlueSpruce Holdings and manages several single-family fix & flips and holds over a hundred multifamily rental doors. Adam is the organizer of Colorado’s most active real estate group, and he hosts the Creative Real Estate Podcast.

I’m honored to have Adam on my show today as the first podcast of 2019! First of all, we discuss how he got his start in property management so that he could qualify for a commercial loan to start his business. We also discuss his first steps into multi-family, how he has grown his business, as well as how to put together a tactical team. Furthermore, Adam goes into detail about how to find, manage and make a significant profit on out-of-market investments, as well as why C-Class investments are his number one choice. And you truly don’t want to miss his investment predictions for 2019.

#INVESTTHIS EP 45: Real Estate Note Investing with Scott Carson

Real estate note investing is not your typical investing business. The most critical aspect is knowing what your financing options are, as well as how and when to use those options. –Forbes

This week I sit down with Scott Carson, CEO of We Close Notes. His company focuses on buying pools of distressed assets on residential and commercial properties direct from banks and hedge funds. He also teaches other real estate investors how to invest in non-performing notes. As if this didn’t keep him busy enough, he also hosts the podcast, The Note Closers Show.

On today’s show, Scott takes us from his low period in which he sold everything but his dog and his truck to generating $500MM in assets. He has managed to pack in a lot of information on this episode from how to negotiate with borrowers to the step-by-step process of how anyone can get into the note business. Scott also discusses the process of taking over from a bank, what kind of deals you can expect buying distressed notes as well as where to find capital.

#INVESTTHIS EP 44: The Steps to Take to Become a Real Estate Wholesaler

The value a real estate wholesaler brings to their buyers is their ability to locate and negotiate control or purchase of homes at discounts. Forbes Real Estate 

I’m honored to share my father’s real estate wholesaling journey on this week’s podcast. My father, Ron Bower, was a corporate man for 35 years, working in technology. When his company downsized last year, he decided to take on the daunting, but doable task of starting his own real estate business, RB1 Investments. As with all new endeavors, he needed to learn, and learn quickly. He joined the Real Estate Worldwide (REWW) program, which taught him how to be a real estate wholesaler from A-Z. He feels that REWW is an invaluable resource that continues to this day to help him grow his business.

On this weeks episode, Ron discusses why he decided to start working for himself and how he made the transition from corporate America to founding RB1 Investments. He also shares valuable advice on how to move past your fears to build the life you want. Also discussed is how to apply all that you have currently learned into a new business, and how to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
