I'm happy to have my friend Trevor Mauch the founder of Investor Carrot back for another podcast in our ongoing series on entrepreneurship”. Today's show is all about how to create a co-working space that is more than just an office; more than just a place to work. It's all about having a great place to work and create a culture at the same time.
A friend of mine mentioned one day that she would love to create a co-working space where she lives; a place where other young entrepreneurs could work, hang out, network and learn from each other. Read the rest of this entry →

My guest today is Mark Podolsky AKA the “Land Geek”, and the topic is how to make yourself irrelevant in your business. This is something all entrepreneurs struggle with – how do I get out of the way so my business can grow without me?
Let’s face it; the last thing we wanted to do when we opened our business was to create another “JOB” for ourselves. In today’s show Mark shares his tips for building a business that runs without you.
Mark and I did a podcast a while back where we talked about investing in land, and why he thinks this is the perfect investing strategy for him, and I will put that link below.

Mark shares some pretty impressive statistics of exactly how much and how fast he grew when he was finally able to let go of some of the work. Here are just a few of the things we talked about in this podcast: Read the rest of this entry →

I’m happy to have Trevor Mauch from Investor Carrot back for the 4th episode in this series of podcasts on entrepreneurship. Today we are going to talk about the secrets to hiring “A list” team members.
Some of you may not know that Trevor has a great blog too. If you want to learn about websites, marketing, SEO and much more you can checkhis site out by Clicking Here.
In the first 3 shows in this series we talked about mindset, productivity hacks (and why they don’t work) and the big goals trap. If you missed any of the 1st three podcasts you can find the links to those at the bottom of the page.
Not hiring soon enough is one of the biggest stumbling blocks that virtually every entrepreneur on the planet faces, but it’s especially important for real estate investors since they tend to be “one man shows” for way to long. They struggle with questions like when should I hire my first team member? How do I know when the time is right? Do I need an employee or should I just outsource some of the work?
