Hello BP members,
We are more than half way 2014 and this is has been my best year investing to date! With 5 months left I really want to finish big so last night I hosted my first real estate mastermind group. I invited 4 of my areas bigger players including: 2 that are excellent at raising private capitol, a master wholesaler (yes this does exist) and an investor that has the best cash buyers lists I've ever seen (he has sold 45 flips this year!)
How did I get these players to meet with me? Easy, I did a text blast to all of them stating dinner and drinks on me, the date and time being held at Michael Simmons B spot restaurant (I posted a pic of the text on my instagram page) . They were all in, we met at 6:30 grabbed a table outside and stayed till 11:00! The information and ideas shared were excellent! How mush did this cost me? Only $90.00 which included the tip!
I'm sharing this to show people for a mere $90.00 (or even less) how easy it is to get the attention and time of your local successful investors (in this case 4 hours of their time), learn their techniques as well as sharing mine and expand your team. This is far less then the $5,000.00 seminar fee that shares "concept" investing and not real life transactions!
@Mike Alder - Brilliant. Well done.
@Joshua Dorkin Thanks Joshua! I appreciate it!!
@Mike Alder what a great idea. I love it!
Correct me ...... You could not possibly just text blast to just anybody. It has to be a list of potential team members, realtors, investors, buyers etc to get together and do real networking and of course with you paying for the dinner and tips at a local restaurant. Now question begs a response and where and how did it come about?
You first need to establish relationships with folks before you do this, of course . . .
@richelle thomas Thanks! you should try it if you haven't already. It was a lot of fun!
I've got a buddy that set up this neat website for organizing masterminds online.
It is paid though.
I've got a group started their for Real Estate investors.
Nice work @Mike Alder ! I'm doing some wholesaling in Cuyahoga County - let's connect.
I love this idea. I've done something similar with my peers who have a similar passion with real estate, but nothing with real experienced investors. I'm definitely giving it a go!
Great to hear @Christopher Salazar
Please share your results with me!
Thanks @Joshua McGinnis
If you need feet on the ground in Cuyahoga County let me know! I'd be happy to help!
@Mike Alder That's a good idea. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to try that later on.
Thanks @Mike Alder - I'll be reaching out to you today.
