Most investors go to networking events, real estate clubs and seminars. I’m sure you have stumbled across some very successful investors at these events. You may even be able to point out a handful of extremely successful ones. Just think about how hard and how long these investors have worked. Wouldn’t it be great to know what they know? What is it that makes these investors so successful?
There are two things most extremely successful investors have in common. They work no where near as hard as most investors and a fraction of the time. Why? Because these investors are running a business, not working in a business. They have delegated the daily processes, even delegated the management. They have completely separated themselves from the grind from daily processes and they can spend months at a time on extravagant international vacation while their business runs on its own. They are entrepreneurs.
Most people are technicians and handle all of the daily processes themselves. They are do-it-yourselfers and can’t fathom the idea of delegating tasks. There is only so much time and they can only do so many deals which constrains profits. Conversely, entrepreneurs unleash their team and focus on high level decisions, growing the business and ideas to improve the business. Meanwhile the managers run the business and the technicians handle the daily processes. Sure they may only make 80% of the profit as a do-it-yourselfer. But they can do 5 time, 10 times, even 20+ times more deals. They are not restricted, they delegate, build effective systems and teams. If you want to become extremely successful, become an entrepreneur. The most influential book I have read is EMyth Revisited by Michael Gerber. I strongly suggest you read this book, it may completely change your approach to your real estate business.
