Diary of a Newbie Real Estate Investor-Energy is EVERYTHING!

               What a great meeting we had at Boston AREIA last night!  What a great group of people!

I believe that energy is EVERYTHING!  What you put out is what you get back.  If your energy is humdrum, that’s what you will get back in return.  If you put out focused high energy, you will get back more of the same.  Let me give you a real life, it’s happening to me example.  The past few years has been a bit tough on me.  My mother, Oma, who I love dearly, got sick a few years back.  She had been living with me for a few years before that, so she was my roomie, my confident and my best friend.  She passed away about a year and half ago.  It was devastating for me.  And, honestly, for about a year I was just going through the motions.  I wasnt’s really putting out the marketing or focused on my real estate the way I had been.  I hadn’t put as much real effort into pretty much anything.  Looking back, I’m sure I was dealing with depression.  When you are in it, you don’t realize it.  And, being my mother’s daughter, I just kept going.  She was a rock and a bit of a force of nature.  I watched her bury two of her sons (my brothers), which would cause many parents to crumble, but, she just kept going.  So, what other choice did I have, but to keep going?

When Kim and Chris with Brownstone’s JV/Fast track program said, “Why don’t you take the Wholesaling course that we are rolling out to test it and give feedback.”, I said sure.  I wasn’t all that excited.  I mean, I know all this stuff, right?  I’ve been involved in real estate since 2006.   After I thought about it a while, I decided not only to get involved, but to actually put into action what was being taught and blog about it for new investors.  I put my newbie hat on and plugged into the program.  Wholesaling is all about lead generation.  So, you actually have to take some action to generate leads.  I updated my investing website, www.buymyhousebostonareia.com, plugged into the system that Brownstone offered with direct mail campaigns (I’m working on something so others can take advantage of the system) and I used the system to send out some direct mail campaigns.  The activity increased my energy around getting my wholesaling business back on the track to where it had been before my mother got sick.  I got excited about real estate again and began blogging.  As you have seen other things started to happen.  I was contacted by a great friend about a new business opportunity, more and more people were becoming interested in what I am doing with advertising and helping businesses get online, get found and drive leads to them.  And, my phone started ringing like crazy for potential wholesale deals.  

The thing is, my phone started ringing from the direct mail campaign, but, that energy carried over to my wholesaling website as well.  I’m now getting calls from people wanting to sell their houses who are searching online.  We are working on a deal in Southborough that came in just the other day from my website.  Isn’t that amazing how it all works?  And, really it has to do with the energy and frequency that I am on.  I’m focused on developing multiple streams of income from wholesaling to Boston AREIA to network marketing.  And, all of them are producing some phenomenal results.  It all starts with activity and energy.  There are 3 types of people in life, those who watch what’s happening, those who don’t know what is happening and those who make things happen.  What type of person are you?  If you want to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, then it all starts with activity and energy.  So, take some action and let’s go make some things happen together!

I mentioned at the meeting last night about a meeting next Thursday night offering the ability to meet and learn about a non-real estate opportunity with Superstar speaker, Multi-Million Dollar Earner, basketball team owner, Andre Vaughn.  Andre started in real estate and was introduced to network marketing about 10 years ago.  He created amazing residual income and enough income to buy a basketball team.  Who doesn’t want to come learn from someone with that resume?  The details of the event are as follows:
