It’s not very often that I have a new investing strategy to dive into, but today we’re going to talk about one that was new to me until just recently and that is container homes. My guest is my friend Stevie Bear of Make it Modular.
Stevie comes from a real estate family that goes back 3 generations. She is a real estate investor, a Realtor/Broker, the owner of Make it Modular, and a partner in a funding company. Just for fun, Stevie has a 5th business called the Bear’s Lair which is a free space for artists to perform (and keep all the proceeds).
Today you are going to learn all about container homes, and why some people are interested in this type of home ownership. Austin is a trendy community so it’s a perfect place for Stevie's business. Read the rest of this entry →

“Why your attitude and your habits have more to do with making more money and having more freedom than anything else”.
I read a book recently called “How to Change Your Mindset to Achieve Huge Success” by Mark Ferguson, and that’s what I want to talk about today. Like the author Mark Ferguson, I believe that your mindset has everything to do with your ability to achieve huge success in life.
Passive Income Changes Everything
One thing that Mark has learned along the way is how passive income will help reduce the stress in your life. By saving more, investing more and by having a different attitude about money, he has changed his life. (He is the guy that bought a Lamborghini after all. More on that later.)
I know this for sure; having a negative mindset will keep you from seeing opportunities and will keep you poor in more ways than you can count.

Today's show is on overcoming procrastination; the silent killer of your business.
I read a great book a couple of years ago called “Eat That Frog” by Brian Tracy. In this book Brian talks about overcoming procrastination. He talks about getting that thing you dread the most off your plate the first thing in the morning each day. That is the whole principle behind “Eat That Frog”. Attacking you’re your most dreaded tasks and getting them over with at the beginning of the day.

My guest today is Cally Wood Doyle from South Florida who is a Realtor and investor.
Cally is a great example of someone that has managed to successfully combine her investing business with the retail side of real estate.
She has become an expert in working in the “fringe areas” outside of the big cities in her area as both a Realtor and investor. This show was really interesting, because Cally has managed to set the standard for what nicely rehabbed properties will sell for in these areas. This is especially important because accurate comps aren’t readily available in some of the more rural areas around the country. Read the rest of this entry →

One of the most common complaints today is that it’s hard to find good deals. No matter where you are located the complaint is still the same.
If what you’re currently doing isn’t working as well as what you would like, you have to do something different. Let’s take a look at some ways you can find good deals.
1. Look Somewhere Different
Where are you looking for deals? Are you looking in the same place everyone else is looking? It’s tough in most areas if your only source of deals is the MLS, Craig’s List and other online sites that have a lot of competition.
If you focus on off market deals you will have much less competition. Read the rest of this entry →
