I joined the military right out of high school. While in the military, I became a member of the elite army special forces also known as the Green Berets. After spending 10 years in the service, I exited and joined the Seattle fire department.
I started my RE investing career in 2002 and bought my very first property on a lease option. After learning multiple ways to do a deal, like most investors do, I found there was a serious issue. I kept going broke…
I’d do a deal, get paid then find myself with little money. Do another deal; get paid, etc. over and over.
I was doing everything the courses told me to do, direct mail, signs, ads and everything else. Same results; not enough leads to drive my business to the level I dreamed of. I wanted a lifestyle that I knew I could have, if only I could find the right system.
I used paid services, rented websites and even went with national “brands” to try and get leads. Still didn’t get the job done.
Finally, I went back to my Commando roots and decided to approach it from an unconventional standpoint.
That’s when it happened. After 2 years of developing and testing, I launched my system and ended up doing 7 figures in my business that year. That was 2006.
It’s cool to have become a sought after marketing master. Companies seek me out to consult for their business and marketing strategies. I’ve has become known as “The Marketing Commando”, and for good reason. I’ve trained thousands of business owners and real estate people how to turn on the REAL power of marketing in their business.
