Continuously growing influence through deals and activity. 📈✨

One thing sticks out in my real estate investment career: the constant increase of influence through acquisitions and activity. Maintaining momentum grows your reach and credibility. Each deal you close builds your reputation and expertise.
I've found that showing progress attracts investment. I've shown my investments' results via sharing photos, value-driven material, and networking with influential people. This establishes credibility and attracts like-minded people who are drawn to successful ventures.

Dear friends, each deal you close is a shining badge of influence. The world hears, "Hey, I know my stuff!" And guess what? Investors devour it. I often say, “Success begets success.” The more agreements you close, the more influential you are, attracting new investment opportunities.

I challenge you to act! Get involved, learn, and delve into real estate investing. Anyone can succeed in this industry. Success won't magically fall into your lap while binge-watching your favorite show. Oh no! Friend, seize it with both hands. Take chances, be determined, and let success find you.

Real estate investment transformed my life and career. I've succeeded and transformed lives through hard work and dedication. The fact that traditional education programs disregard syndication and alternative investments drives my interest in them. I have changed lives and helped people build wealth by offering investing possibilities.

Keep your fire blazing, prospective real estate investors! Never stop improving and seize any opportunity to expand your impact. Each deal you close boosts your credibility, enticing more like-minded investors to your winning team. Gain information and actively participate in the real estate business. My friends, success is yours to take. 💥

I, begrudgingly, have to agree with you. I agree that  many investors will see deals being closed as success, as you state.  And, I get why you view it as success: more deals = more fees and more chance to collect carried interest.

But, the logic of this statement is purely beneficial to the GP and detrimental to the LP.  If the goal is to buy, you are inherently not interested in being patient for the best deals, but rather your entire paradigm is centered on buying a "good enough" deal. And this leads to less disciplined assumptions, maybe going into markets you aren't familiar with, going higher leverage to get more deals done.

@Evan Polaski I agree that the ultimate goal is to have successful full cycle deals. Those are the closings that I truly celebrate for our investors and our organization. My main point here is to stay active in the space and document the journey. Definitely don't buy a deal just to buy, but make adjustments as we go through different cycles and stay in the game.

Penny can’t double forever.

It’s important to get started.

It’s equally important to slow down and stop. 

Each deal you do builds your influence… right up until you buy way too many at the wrong time, using other people’s money, and then lose huge chunks of money one after another.

Real estate is such a good investment because it’s “semi-passive”. You buy it reasonably well, hold onto it and operate reasonably well, and over the long run inflation increases rents and value. You don’t have to do that much (relative to many other types of business).

But that’s a double edged sword. 

When the market turns, like it did last year and is right now in certain commercial asset classes, there’s nothing you can do. 

Many people who followed the creed you outlined are not only losing their money, but that of their investors. And worse, many are in the process of destroying their reputations because of how they are handling it.

I agree that one has to get started, buying the first few deals. But also have to know when you have “enough” and can slow down.

Quality over quantity. One lost deal/repossession/bankruptcy and credibility is damaged.
