Wholesaling is a popular real estate strategy, and it’s one that I believe should be in every investor’s toolbox. In its simplest form, wholesaling is buying a property at a deep discount and then selling it to someone for a higher price.
Now you might be wondering, what are the traits of a successful wholesaler and what exactly does someone need to know to be successful at wholesaling?Before we dive into that, let’s talk a little bit about how investors chose their investing strategy.
Here is my question today; are you coachable? You might be asking, what exactly does that mean?
When someone is coachable, it means you are ready to do whatever it takes to change, to transform your business (or yourself), or to get better at something… whatever that means in your business.
Most people think coaching is mainly for athletes, but that’s not the case. It’s for everyone. I can tell you this; people at all levels of success have coaches. In this show we are going to go over what traits you need in order be coachable, the habits and traits folks have that are not coachable, and what anyone considering investing in coaching should look for in a coach.

Today’s show on making the transition from self-employed to business owner. In part 1 of this 2-part episode, I asked this question: “Do you have a real business or have you just created a job for yourself”? If they’re being truthful, most real estate investors will admit they’ve created this beast called a job. And, it’s a job where they are working way too hard.
In part 1 I discussed what makes a true business owner different than most small businesses. A business is something that you can step away from that continues to run and generate income even if you aren’t there.
Here is an even bigger difference: “Entrepreneurs or true business owners, organize their businesses for growth. They know from the very beginning they want to scale. A true entrepreneur knows that their job isn’t to do the work, it’s to build a company that does the work”. I also talked about how to begin to outsource tasks in your business in part 1. You can see that it’s all about planning. They knew right from the beginning they were building a business.
It’s definitely not too late to pivot and begin the process to “fire yourself”.
If you missed part 1, I will put a link to that show below. If you haven’t already gotten my work sheet “Fire Yourself” you can do that by CLICKING HERE.
Here's the big question I want to ask you today. Do you have a real business or have you just created a job for yourself? For most real estate investors, the answer is that they have just created a job for themselves. We like to think of ourselves as entrepreneurs, but are we really? I think the answer is no in most cases and here’s the reason.
Entrepreneurs or true business owners, organize their businesses for growth. They know from the very beginning they want to scale. A true entrepreneur knows that their job isn’t to do the work, it’s to build a company that does the work.
In almost every case, real estate investors start out as a one man show. That’s how they get their first few deals done. It’s the next thing that happens that will likely determine their future, and that is how quickly they start to build a team.
So how do you begin the process? You need to create a plan to fire yourself.
