Hey Ronnie,

If you would like to contact me personally pertaining to your real-estate investment business; particularly your HUD deals and wholesaling you can e-mail me personally from my e-mail address which is timothy_leflore@yahoo.com and my cell phone number is (909) 489-1401.   I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Ronnie,

I heard the podcast titled show called "Stop Being Stupid" and Dan Miller mentioned your situation on how you were struggling financially and how you later got involved in HUD deals and how you have made approximately $90,000 thus far.  I am very interested in doing HUD deals and wholesaling as well, what better way to gain advice from someone who went through the process and succeeded. 

I could use your help because I got laid off about a year ago and my unemployment ran out and I am currently working as a part-time security guard, and I had to drop out of law school because of my financial situation.  Although, my current situation may seem dire I know it is only temporary and I am in the process of being a much better financial situation in due time with the help from the right people and the right mind set and attitude.

P.S.  I really need your help and advice, have a great a day.

Hi Ronnie,

No, I'm not currently pursuing my wholesale business.  Initially, I had great success finding potential deals using the methods Sean Terry talks about in his podcast.  I was getting up really to put out bandit signs on the weekends.  Then, I would take them down on Monday morning before heading off to work.  Unfortunately (here comes the excuse), I wasn't in a position to leave work and visit with homeowners.  Calls would pour in, but I was stuck at work, unable to take action.  

The few times I did leave work to try to make a deal happen, I was advised by my boss that continuing to take "extended" lunches would result in me being forced into a permanent lunch break.

Additionally, I found it really hard to concentrate at work.  I find real estate extremely exciting so I was spending a lot of time and energy pursuing that and not doing my job.

Again, this lead to more "advise" from my boss.

Eventually I had to make a choice.  I don't regret putting it down as it was a great learning experience.  

Here are a few tips if you're wanting to make it work where I failed:

1. Pick a strategy and stick to it.  If you're willing to spend the money on a lead lists and yellow letters, I suggest that over bandit signs.  Although bandits signs are cheaper, they're a huge pain to put up and take down.  Some even hire people to do it for them.  However, finding a reliable person that is willing to work cheaply, either really early or really late at night, is almost impossible.

2. Persistence is everything.  Yeah, you'll have your success stories.  You know, the one where a $7,000 deal falls on your lap the second weekend of putting out bandit signs.  Trust me, they're rare.  Keep working at it.  Devote a set amount of time towards working several aspects of your business.  Don't take the all or nothing approach and have other aspects of your life falter as I did.  I worked really hard to find the deal.  Yet, I didn't take the disciplined approach of developing a cash buyer list as well.  I think that lead to me subconsciously sabotaging the deal because I knew that even if I nailed the contract, I didn't have anyone to sell it to.

3.  Know your markets.  KNOW YOUR MARKETS.  I ended up with a deal for a house that was in one of the worst areas of Kansas City.  I thought I had won!  I could already see the extra $1,000 in my bank account.  Unfortunately, no one wants a 25k house in the slums of Kansas City.  Even worse, this house needed A LOT of work.  I was pushing to get the deal done at 7k.  I really needed to secure it for 2k.  Either way, I didn't make a deal and I let the contract expire.  Thank goodness for good contracts.

Knowing what markets to pursue is critical.  I found that the easiest markets were also extremely crowded.  Everyone and their second-cousin was wholesaling houses in the 30k to 90k range.  Few people were messing with the 150k-200k range houses.  That was the major leagues in KC.  Unfortunately, that also meant a longer wait in between deals.  It meant staying persistent with my marketing.  It meant that I would have to overcome other more experienced investors.  

I didn't make it.  Hopefully, you will.  Good luck!

Hi Ronnie,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
