INVESTTHIS EP 78: Business Growth Strategies with Ryan Scialabba

To boost business growth strategies, most companies need a diverse set of initiatives–and how you sequence them matters. –McKinsey

There are many different ways to grow your business, and today, Ryan Scialabba focuses on creating growth strategies to transition from solopreneur to managing partner.

Ryan Scialabba has been investing in real estate since the age of 19. Six years later, he is the managing partner at UCG Homebuyers of Pittsburgh, Founder of FLIP PGH, and partner at FlipTalk.com. As an investor, he and his team will complete 140-150 transactions, have over $11MM and sales, and for the second year in a row be a $1MM net company. He prides himself on being a No BS investor, showing people the journey, the wins and losses, and helping people build businesses that fit their lifestyle – not businesses that consume it. 

You won’t hear my voice very often during this podcast, because Ryan goes into great detail as to how he and his partner developed a detailed strategy to grow their business. Starting as partners, they used their system to build their successful team and increase their bottom line. Ryan focuses on riding the line between lifestyle and growth while trying to enjoy the ride. He offers some great advice as to how to do just that.

Also, in today’s episode, you will learn about the Pittsburgh market, Ryan’s biggest fears, and how he conquered them, as well as the biggest life lesson he’s learned to date.

INVESTTHIS EP 74: Flipping Junkie and Forbes Real Estate Council Contributor, Melissa Johnson

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. She is also the wife of Danny Johnson, of Flipping Junkie.

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!
