Changes on the way… what are YOU doing to work and live at a higher level? – EPISODE 68

Thanks so much for your interest and support of the Real Estate Power Hour. It’s been 68 episodes now and Mark is just getting started. He’s been thinking a lot over the past few weeks about the things you, the listeners of TREPH have been saying and asking for, and he’s got some ideas he wants to share with you today. It’s all focused around moving to a higher level, in life and in business – things that enable you to maximize your impact and truly leave a legacy on your family and on the world. So stick around to hear what Mark’s got on the front burner and find out how you can get involved on some higher levels as Mark takes this show and its impact to a higher level.

Give people an opportunity to step up to the plate.

If you’ve listened to the Real Estate Power Hour for any length of time you’ve likely heard Mark Evans say that he tells you about the blessings that have come to him, “not to impress, but to impress upon.” What he means by that is simple: He wants what’s happened in his life to be an example of what can happen in your life through smart, hard work that leverages your efforts into multiple opportunities and increases in business. One of the most important ways Mark has done that is to set a company vision that enables his employees to step up to the plate. He wants people who work for him to have the opportunity to put their skills and talents to work so that they (and the company) can move forward in ways they only hoped for. What are you doing to elevate your people, to give them opportunities to excel for themselves and for you? Mark’s got some advice for you on that front, so stick around and listen.

Many times the things that got you where you are today are the very things that are holding you back.

A great example of that principle is the fix and flip guy who put a ton of sweat equity into his projects from the beginning. He worked hard, saved cash by painting, ripping out carpet, doing some basic trim work, and learning how to put on a roof. By doing that he learned what it takes to make a flip work. He knows the business from the inside out. But if he keeps following that model he’s going to learn all too quickly that the number of flips he’s able to do is going to be limited by his own energy, time, and lack of expertise. What does he need to do? He needs to let go of the things that brought him to his present level of success so that he can move to the next level. He’s got to find and hire competent contractors who can take over those labor jobs so that he can get busy finding more flips. That’s how he moves to the next level. That’s how he builds his legacy to a greater degree. That’s just one example. Mark Evans has more for you on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour, so give it a listen.

Are you surrounding yourself with great people who up your game?

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” Mark Evans believes it’s true beyond a doubt. That’s why he spends a good deal of time and money on coaches and mentors who are able to help him move beyond his present level of expertise and skill. That might sound funny coming from a guy who’s doing millions of dollars in deals every month, but if you stop and think about it you’ll realize that it’s exactly BECAUSE of that commitment that he’s able to do that much in deals. You don’t get to the level of success Mark enjoys by accident. You invest in yourself to get there. So what are you doing to surround yourself with people who can help you grow and move your business forward? You may feel like you can’t afford it, but the reality is that you can’t afford NOT to do it. Mark’s got some advice for you along that line, on this episode.

Do you have capital you want to invest in some ongoing cash-flow properties?

Turn-key investments are a winner when it comes to cash flow. Mark Evans and his team are experts at finding properties that they can turn into revenue makers and they’ve got opportunities right now that you can get in on. If you’ve got some capital that you want to invest, Mark’s team has some multi-family units that are ready to go so that your investment could begin generating a cash flow stream from day one. If you’re interested in finding out more about great opportunities like that, connect with Mark through the contact page at www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com. You owe it to yourself and your future legacy to find out more.

How to enjoy the peaks and valleys of Real Estate Investing – EPISODE 66

Every business and every life has peaks and valleys. The peaks are the high times, the times when you’re encouraged and riding high. The valleys are those times when things are not looking as good, when you’re discouraged or frustrated, or lacking confidence. What can you do to ride those peaks and valleys with more stability and happiness, internally and as a business? That’s what Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to share with you in this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The first step to enjoying the peaks and valleys of business.

If you’re going to learn to enjoy the peaks and valleys that naturally come with owning and operating a business you’ve got to accept that the peaks and valleys exist and will continue to exist. You can’t get rid of them. There is no way to control every factor that goes into the creation of those ups and downs, but YOU can change, YOu can learn how to ride the ups and downs with confidence and courage. So accept that the peaks and valleys are going to exist and begin learning how to make the changes in yourself and in your business that will enable you to enjoy the ups and downs.

Data not dramaData not drama: Key two to navigating the peaks and valleys.

One of Mark Evan’s favorite sayings is, “Data not Drama.” He firmly believes that the data, the numbers, the facts about your business are what will give you direction. Data can give you encouragement. Data can give you optimism. Data can give you confidence. But only if you take the time to learn what the data means and how to use it effectively. In this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour Mark is going to show you how to use the data surrounding your business to make projections about future income and expenses, which in turn will enable you to bolster your confidence and move ahead aggressively to make those projections a reality.

Step three to enjoying the peaks and valleys: Focus on your existing investor relationships to increase your profitability.

Every investor you come in contact with and eventually do a deal with is a potential gold mine of future opportunities. But you’ve got to know how to foster that relationship and build rapport in a way that will motivate them to do more deals with you. That is one of the most important skills you can develop to increase your profitability; more than sending out more mailers and more than finding a new investor. Mark Evans knows. He’s learned the hard way that protecting and nurturing existing relationships with active, motivated investors can double or triple the bottom line. Find out more on this episode.

Educate yourself: Step four to enjoying the peaks and valleys of your investing business.

Remember, nothing is going to make the peaks and valleys go away. That’s not your goal. Your goal is to learn how to maximize your opportunities in spite of the peaks and valleys. That requires that you grow, that you learn, that you educate yourself in the ways to use the data to amplify your business efforts. Listen to this episode as Mark Evans shares more tips on how to make the most of the up and down cycle that every business experiences. He’s got lots of hard-learned lessons to share, lessons that can help you turn your business around, get it off the launch pad, or move it into a whole new level of profitability. That’s on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

If you’re not getting the results you want it’s because you’re not using this technique – EPISODE 65

What’s the technique? It’s questions. The questions you ask yourself. You have to learn how to ask the questions of yourself that will challenge your mindset, change the way you look at the world, and enable you to step beyond the artificial barriers you’ve erected (even unknowingly) and achieve things you never dreamed possible. Mark Evans, DM, DN recorded this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour to give you the opportunity to step into his world and learn what has enabled him to close millions of dollars in real estate deals this year alone and to consistently do that over the last 19 years of his career. Listen in to find out how a $100 bill and Mark’s new training could change your life.

When it comes down to it, only YOU can change your life.

There are people all over social media and the internet who want to find fault, want to cast stones, want to criticize and critique anything that’s outside the realm of what they find comfortable or normal. That’s because they don’t have the guts to do the things that will bring them success. They’d rather sit around and criticize than do the hard work of changing, growing, and getting better. Mark sees their posts and laughs. He knows they’ll never change unless they begin to ask themselves different, smarter questions. They need to quit asking what’s wrong with the things others are doing or saying to achieve success and instead begin asking themselves why they are not willing to do what it takes to be successful themselves. Find out how YOU can take the right kind of action on this episode.

You have to become a different person to experience success you’ve never experienced.

Mark Evans knows. Over 19 years of a real estate investing career Mark’s had to continually grow in his mindset, his ability to put together teams and systems, and his knowledge of the investing arena and the potential it holds. Without making a commitment to personal growth you’re dooming yourself to stay right where you are for the foreseeable future. You can’t move beyond where you are unless you’re willing to learn how to employ the vehicles that can take you there. Mark’s ranting today. But it’s a good rant. Get an earful for yourself and a kick in the seat of your pants to get you moving, by listening to this episode.

There’s no such thing as making money without working.

Don’t misunderstand. Mark spends less than 2 hours a day doing things that have to do with his business on most days, but it’s not because he doesn’t work. The truth is that he’s worked his butt off for the last 19 years to get to the point where he doesn’t have to work. His continued growth and application of what he’s learned is what has enabled him to build the teams and systems that run his business without him, and provide him the lifestyle he enjoys today. So does he make money without working. Maybe today he does, but there was plenty of work along the way. Learn how to dispel the “money with no work” myth in your own mind by hearing Mark’s take on it in this episode.

If you are not making calls every single day, you’re missing the opportunities that can make you massively successful.

Opportunities very seldom fall in your lap. You’ve got to hustle to find them. It’s the hustle that puts you into a place where you CAN find them. Mark’s new live training, coming up in October of 2015 is his generous offer to help you learn what he’s learned about how to hustle up leads and real estate deals no matter where you live or what level of experience you have. It’s a multi-hour event that will train you to make the calls and locate the deals that will give you the income to enjoy the lifestyle you want and build the business to support it. It’s $100, just so you have some skin in the game. Get the info in this episode.

Childhood lessons could be the #1 thing holding you back – EPISODE 64

As a child our parents and other adults in our lives tell us all kinds of things, teaching us how to be safe in a world that isn’t always a safe place to be. “Dont talk to strangers.” “Don’t talk about money.” Don’t do risky things.” But the fact is that though those things serves us well as children, they could be what’s holding us back as adults. We STILL won’t talk to strangers, when it’s the very thing we HAVE to do in order to get a real estate investing business going. We still are leery of talking about finances, when that’s what successful investors to all the time. Find out Mark’s solution to these mindset mistakes on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

 

You have to work daily to get out of your own way by changing your beliefs.

It’s not that everything you believe is wrong or limiting, but there’s probably more that you’re clinging to unconsciously than you know that is holding you back from stepping into opportunities and situations that could launch your life into the stratosphere. What are the things you believe that are keeping you from making changes that you need to make? “I’m not good with people.” But you can learn to be good with people. “I’m uncomfortable bringing up financial issues.” But you can learn to be comfortable with discomfort, in fact you have to if you’re going to succeed. Listen to this episode to get a shot in the arm toward getting out of your own way.

Why calling or talking to others is an amazing investment in yourself.

It’s really pretty simple. How do you learn the things you need to learn. Very few of us are self-motivated enough to pick up a book or find a resource on our own. We learn from other people. Teachers, mentors, coaches, trainers – our culture is full of people who serve as resources to help other people move forward in a variety of areas. You’ve got to learn to see people as a resource, as a wealth of interest and knowledge that can help you grow, stretch, and move to the places you want to go. So get over your “I don’t talk to strangers” mentality and get growing.

 

Today’s assignment: Get out there and talk to strangers.

Wherever you go today, make a point of talking to people you don’t know. In the checkout line. At the restaurant. When you’re pumping your gas. People are around you all day long and the worst thing you could do is to pretend they’re not there because you are uncomfortable. Approach someone. Strike up a conversation. Ask them what they do for a living. Be kind. As you practice talking to strangers you’re going to find that it’s not so bad. In fact, you’ll discover that it’s actually a lot of fun to get outside your own little world and learn about others and the way they live life. That’s when you’ll be ready to get out there and talk about the real estate investing business and make new contacts that can propel your business. But you’ve got to start today.

Adjusting what you believe is the first step to taking control of your financial future.

Many of us grew up in blue-collar, hard-working families. It wasn’t unusual for us to hear mom or dad say, “We can’t afford it.” That was probably true in a very real sense, but has that mindset soaked into your soul so deeply that you still believe it today? Does it limit your beliefs about how much money you are capable of earning and how much you really can afford? You’ve got to break out of that mindset and a hundred more just like it so you can think of possibilities you’ve never dreamed before. That’s how you begin taking control of your future and moving into the realm of your dreams. Hear how Mark Evans suggests you go about it on this episode.

How I turned 32 cents into millions of dollars in real estate transactions – EPISODE 62

Too many real estate investors (or wanna be investors) are bemoaning the amount of work it takes to get real estate deals. They say there’s not enough inventory, not enough opportunity, but in today’s show Mark is going to share a very simple, VERY SIMPLE strategy he’s been using for years with every person who buys a property from him that has resulted in millions of dollars of additional business. It’s an example of how you have to MAKE your own opportunity, not wait for it to come around. Listen in and learn about the 32 cent secret.

Quit talking about all the difficulties and start asking “What CAN we do?”

We live in a day and age when there is so much opportunity. The advances in technology like Periscope (www.Periscope.tv) enable us to communicate with people around the world instantly with the push of a button – and that’s how Mark is sharing a ton of knowledge with people who truly want to move their business and life to the next level. It’s not a game. It’s an opportunity to advance things beyond what you dreamed possible. So ask yourself a new question: “What CAN you do?” It could change your life and it doesn’t have to cost you a ton either. Listen in to find out how Mark did that and changes his business forever.

Yes, a 32 cent investment that brings in millions in revenue.

It DOES sound like a “too good to be true” claim but it’s not. Not at all. It’s the honest truth that has set Mark Evans apart in the real estate investing industry. Why? Because it’s a bit outside the box, a bit unconventional, and it makes his customers remember him for their next transaction or deal. He’s got people coming back to him over and over because of this simple, 32 cent trick. And it’s not a trick. It’s just smart business. What is it? You’ve got to listen to find out… so click the link or the play button and get ready to be blown away by how simple it really is.

But the 32 cent strategy requires some follow up work from you.

Like anything you do in business, this approach doesn’t run itself. You’ve got to put steps in place “after the fact” to make sure it garners the kind of response it’s intended to. If you don’t, you’ll be wasting a whole lot of potential repeat transactions. You can follow up in person by the phone, via postal mail, or even through an automated email sequence that enables your customers to respond to YOU with their interest in additional deals. But you have to do SOMETHING to maximize the potential of this little beauty. As always, Mark has lots of ideas about how you could do that, so listen to the episode first chance you get.

Do you need some help with your real estate investing business?

Mark is available to help you get your business moving on a level you never dreamed (or at least only hoped). If you are actively working deals connect with Mark through the contact page on the website and he’ll get back to you to chat about how you might be able to work together, and get your business rolling to greater levels than ever.

Mark’s new son has him all riled up. He’s got broader, bigger, more powerful goals on his mind because of the arrival of this little guy. As he holds his little boy he’s realizing the importance of legacy and sees more clearly what it really is. It’s not about the money or the success, it’s about the things that he can provide for his family to live a rich, full, meaningful life. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to challenge you with the things that are bouncing around in his head since the birth of his son, and ask you one question: “When you stand before the mirror, naked, looking at who you really are, what questions should you be asking that will drive you to the next level?”

Why you should never listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game.

Mark hears jokers around him all the time, people who are talking about this or that in the business world or in regard to the financial markets. They sound like they know what they’re talking about and certainly have big, strong opinions about things, but in the next breath they complain about having to work 40 hours a week and are thankful to be having time off. If they’re so smart when it comes to the business realm or the financial markets, why are they still working a 40 hour a week job? Why aren’t they putting their knowledge to work for themselves? The answer is simple: They’re posers. They’re not really as smart as they think. That’s why you should NEVER listen to anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game. If you do, you’ll lose – big. Listen in to this episode as Mark Evans, DM, DN tells you what you’ve got to do to begin building that family legacy today.

The ability to build a strong legacy is not in who you listen to, it’s in the questions you ask.

When you stand naked before the mirror, just you and nobody else, you’ve got to be able to ask and answer some very serious questions. Who are you? What do you stand for? What’s the purpose of your life? Is what you have now all there is? What do you need to do in order to move to the next level, and the next level, and the level after that? If you aren’t willing to ask those questions and come up with honest, gut-level answers, you’ll never begin taking steps to build a legacy that lasts far beyond your lifetime. You’ll never see your kids move into their adult lives with freedom and confidence that you had to scrape tooth and nail to develop. It starts now. In front of that mirror. Question at a time. Find out more on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

The power of your vision combined with penetrating questions is what brings about your dream.

You’ve got to start with that clear picture of what it is you’re trying to achieve. Once you knjow it, you have to ask penetrating questions: Why do you want it? Why is it important? Why is it vital that you reach it? What is the impact on your family and your future if you reach it? Get those answers clear in your head, then begin moving forward. Those answers will dictate your actions every day, they’ll push you beyond mediocre, they’ll drive you to do that little bit more when everyone else is stopping. That’s what will motivate you long term. Get that vision and the answers to those questions clear in your mind, review them every day, then get moving.

Why do people with big vision get discouraged and quit?

It’s simple. They allow someone who doesn’t “get” their vision to penetrate it. They allow themselves to listen to the criticism that comes from people who don’t see what they see and maybe never will.

How to kill the fear of failure in real estate investing – EPISODE 60

Do you know why you don’t push your way to the next level in your investing business?

You may not believe it’s true, but the reason is that you’re afraid. Afraid of what? Afraid of failing. There are all kinds of fear-based questions bouncing around in your head: What if the marketing campaign doesn’t work like you hope? What if the money you spend on mailers is wasted? What if you do something wrong and get no responses? What if… What if… What if… It’s the first two words to a sentence that ends in fear, and it will KILL your real estate investing business. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour Mark Evans is going to challenge you to quit focusing on the drama (your fears) and start focusing on the data. Once you do that, and do it consistently, you’ll be able to push your way to the next level and beyond.

You lose so that you can win.

It sounds contradictory, but think it through. Losing, or failing at something is one of the most important ways you learn. And as you learn what didn’t work, what caused the failure, what kept you from excelling – and apply those lessons, you become a winner. You don’t make the same mistakes. You improve your systems. You refine the processes you use so that your real estate investing business begins to climb through the obstacles to launch into the stratosphere. It’s the way it happens. It’s the way life is. You send out 500 mailers, and only get 10% response. That’s losing, in a sense, because it helps you refine your marketing to reach more people next time. You lose so that you can win. Find out how to turn those losses into victories on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

What if all the things you’ve been told about real estate investing are wrong?

You may be a veteran real estate investor. Fix and flips. Turnkey deals. Wholesaling. Those are the catchphrases of your past, the things that have been your bread and butter for a long time. But are you building your business to its optimal potential? Could it be that the very things you’ve learned about real estate investing have put you inside a box that you don’t even know is there? What if you could break free? What if someone could show you how to look at situations differently so that you can come to solutions rather than getting stuck in the mud? Mark Evans is here to help. In this episode he’s going to share with you why you should question what people tell you about real estate investing, and how it can set you free from a trap you may be stuck in.

Learn to think rightly about your real estate investing business

Your job is not to find more cash buyers. It’s not to build a bigger mailing list. Your job is not to get a better response rate from your list. It’s not even to find and sell properties at a profit. Your job is to build a business. When you stop thinking of what you do in terms of individual deals and start thinking about it in terms of an overall business, the fog begins to lift. You’re able to strategize, build systems, and set things in motion that will move your entire business forward, even if you do have a deal or two fall through. Listen in to this episode to see what an experienced real estate investor has to say about that simple mindset shift, and what it can do for your business.

The one event that could quadruple your investing business

That may sound like a very arrogant statement to you. It’s only arrogant if it’s not true. Mark Evans has been doing these “Hot Seat” events for a while now and he’s got the data to prove that the people who attend see their real estate investing business skyrocket after learning and applying what Mark has to share. This is not a “rah, rah” kind of event where you get pumped up but get nothing practical. Mark pulls out his own manuals and shows you step by step how his team locates investors, acquires properties, markets them to buyers, and puts deals together consistently over time. You won’t want to miss out. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get involved.

How to attract more buyers, sellers, and private investors – EPISODE 59

Strap on your seatbelt because the DM is about to unload on you. Not to hurt you, but to help you. Today’s episode is a kick in the butt to motivate you to quit making excuses and get moving on your business goals and lifestyle dreams. Now is the time. Not tomorrow. Not the next day. Not next week. Today is the day you have to make things happen. But it’s up to you to take action, to get things flowing in the right direction. As you learn how to make the most of the opportunities you have at your disposal, you’ll see your goals and dreams come true.

THE UPCOMING HOT SEAT EVENT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE

One of the many opportunities that is at your disposal is Mark’s upcoming “hot seat” event. It’s a gathering of serious, savvy, experienced investors who want to take their investing business to the next level. You could be a part of the next one and see your business goals explode as a result. The only requirements is that you are actively doing deals right now, and that you have at least $5,000 to invest in marketing and materials to apply what you’re learning at the hot seat. If you want to find out more, connect with Mark personally at http://www.TheRealEstatePowerHour.com/contact .

WHY DO YOU GET UPSET WHEN DEALS FALL THROUGH?

If you’re hustling in the real estate investing world, you’re going to have deals fall through. But hey, at least you had a deal in the first place. The reason you’re upset when deals fall through is because you don’t have enough deals working. You’re too worried about the one that got away rather than letting it go and getting busy with the next opportunity. If you think there aren’t that many opportunities, then you’re not looking at things clearly. Opportunities to do real estate deals abound, you just have to know how to find them and get them rolling. Listen to this episode to find out how you can get the ball rolling to finding more investors, more cash buyers, more sellers, more of whatever you need in your real estate business.

YOU ARE NOT TOO BUSY TO DO THIS

You may think you are, but you’re not. It’s an excuse you’ve told yourself that has had a hold on you for far too long. Throw away that kind of thinking. You’ve got the same amount of time everyone else does. It’s just a matter of what you’re willing to do with your time. Are you wasting it on movies, TV, and video games? Or are you investing it in activities that can move your life and business forward. This is not about stress or pressure, it’s about purpose. Are you willing to take the time to engage with the people who need what you have to offer so that you can add value to their lives and fulfill your purpose? Take the time to learn the tools available to you – facebook, twitter, periscope, instagram, youtube – and get rolling by getting yourself in front of the people you need to achieve your goals.

THE BIGGEST REASON WHY YOU DON’T HAVE OPPORTUNITIES

The people who could help you with your real estate investing business, the ones who have cash and want to buy and sell properties, they will never know that you can help them if you don’t put yourself in front of them. If you’re not seen, you don’t exist to them. They don’t know what you can offer. So you’ve got to learn how to use and leverage the social media tools out there and maximize your opportunities. And then you do it again tomorrow. Repeat daily, putting yourself out there so that the people you need to meet have the opportunity to meet you. It’s up to you to take action.

Don’t let anybody hold you back from your dreams – EPISODE 58

Naysayers are everywhere. Often right in your own family. It’s not entirely bad, the people who don’t believe in your dreams the most are often doing so because they believe that they are protecting you from being unrealistic or led astray. That’s a good motive. But if you’re going to dream of a better life and leaving a legacy for your family, and if you’re truly going to put action behind your dream and move toward its fulfillment, you’re going to have to be careful who you share those dreams with. This episode of The Real Estate Power Hour is a heartfelt exhortation from the DM about you, your dreams, and what it takes to keep yourself on track.

You are the one who determines what your business will look like.

Don’t ever let other people, or society, or what’s normally done dictate to you what you can and cannot do. You are the one who needs to decide what you want your life to be, then build your business in such a way as to facilitate that kind of life. Most people live it the other way around, allowing their business or their job to dictate the kind of life they can have. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You have the opportunity to change your life, to make it what you envision it being, but you have to get moving. This episode of the Real Estate Power Hour is designed to help you think through the reasons it’s worth taking the chance so you can get started building that life.

Mark’s story is inspiring – an example to show that anything’s possible.

Mark didn’t come from a wealthy home. His parents, to this day, still make only $2500 a month between the two of them. As a freckle-faced kid Mark came across the opportunity to attend a seminar where he saw a man make some calls, talk to some sellers, and set up some deals. That was the day that Mark realized, “I can do that.” He took charge of his own destiny by learning all he could and taking action. He made mistakes. He had some failures. But all along he was learning, growing, and doing what is required to become successful at Real Estate Investing. There’s no reason you can’t do the same thing. Find out more on this episode.

It’s not about millions of dollars and crazy cars.

You can work toward those things if you want, and there’s nothing wrong with it if you do, but what really should be driving your work and business is the difference you can make in the world, and more importantly, in the lives of those you care about. You can build a legacy through the work you’re doing, leaving your family in a place of opportunity and advantage instead of a place of limited opportunities and disadvantage. But you’ve got to decide that you’re going to do it, shut off the negative voices that are throwing doubt on your dreams, and take action to make it happen. Mark’s here to cheer you on and coach you along the way. Find out how to reach out to him on this episode of The Real Estate Power Hour.

Full-circle giving is why Mark does what he does.

That means he wants to help you and anyone else who will take his advice and put it into action. People sneer at him all the time, saying, “Yeah, if it works so well why isn’t everybody doing it?” The sad fact is that the people who say that are the ones who don’t have the guts to take a risk or two and prove it to themselves that what Mark’s saying works. They’ve got time on their hands to criticize because they aren’t taking action. He wants to give because he’s received so much, and he’s willing to help you figure out your next steps if you need his help. Listen to this episode to find out how to contact him.

Why you’ve got to play big to win big – EPISODE 57

So many people who want to move their real estate investing business to the next level are too busy worrying about losing money. That’s right – losing money. They’re penny pinchers who watch every dime to make sure they’re not spending too much. Hey, don’t misunderstand: it’s smart to be wise with your money. But a penny pinching mindset often causes people to misidentify what really IS a wise use of your money and what isn’t. In this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour, Mark Evans, DM, DN is going to kick your butt to help you see why you’ve got to pay to play.

Hiring the best gets you the best results.

When you’re looking to move your real estate investing business forward, you can go about it in a handful of ways. You can go the “cheap” route, hiring somebody on Fiverr.com to do a substandard job that looks bad and wastes your time and money, or you can search out the best in the business to teach you what you need to know. That’s what Mark realized when he decided he wanted to learn Periscope as a platform to expand his reach. He found the guy who has the most impact and reach through Periscope, contacted him, and asked for his rates. Mark wanted the best to teach him how to be the best. Mark’s podcast production team is another example, the guys over at www.PodcastFastTrack.com take care of his audio and show notes every week – and Mark says they’re the best in the business. Why does he hire them to do his podcast show every week? Because he realized that hiring the best yields the best results. Find out the areas where you could be moving your business forward by investing money in yourself and your business, on this episode of the Real Estate Power Hour.

You can’t have big success if you keep playing small.

By “playing small” Mark means being more concerned about losing money than you are about making money. It means watching every dime, worried that you’re making a mistake rather than putting the money you have to work to move you forward. You don’t have to do a lot of money to do what Mark’s talking about. You do what you can with what you’ve got. But you need to realize that there are people out there who can and will help you move forward exponentially, if you’re willing to pay them to help you. The fees you have to pay to get the best help is not a cost, it’s an investment. It’s the price of admission, a qualifier that tells that high level person that you are serious, that you are a person who is ready to put yourself out there and make things happen. That’s the only way they know that they’re not wasting their time. Learn more about how to “pay to play” in this episode.

If you want to win big you have to be willing to lose big.

Notice, we didn’t say you have to lose big, we said you have to be willing to lose big. It’s being willing to take calculated risks. There are no guarantees in life, no sure-fire steps and tactics that give you 100% certainty about anything. But you can do your homework, you can find people who have done what you’re seeking to do, and you can step into their world and receive the benefit of their hard-learned lessons. But only if you’re willing to take a calculated risk. Take Mark’s “Hot Seat” events as an example. It costs you $5,000 to be a part of it and you’ve got to pay for your travel and lodging. You may think you don’t have $5,000 to spend. You may think that someone like Mark, who’s making so much money, should do an event like this for free. But realize this: If you spend $5,000 to learn how to make $500,000, you just got in on the best deal of your life. It’s not a cost, it’s an investment – and great investments like this yield great returns. Find out more about how you can be part of Mark’s upcoming “Hot Seat” event on this episode of TREPH.

Do you know why you keep dealing with “Tire Kickers?”

Maybe you don’t even realize that you are dealing with tire kickers. What’s a tire kicker? It’s a person who eats up your time with questions and a certain level of interest but is never willing to take action. They gobble up your energy and your focus and your moments with the hope of a possible deal but never come through. Mark believes that if you’re continually dealing with tire kickers, the problem is not them, the problem is you. You’re the tire kicker. You’re acting in the exact same way when it comes to taking your business to the next level. You haven’t been willing to invest in yourself or your business so you’re still playing small, on a low level where the tire kickers hang out. If you do things to move yourself into a new sphere of operations, the tire kickers go away because they can’t afford to play at that level. Quit wasting your time with tire kickers. Quit being one. Find out how on this episode.
