For those of you who purchased the Raising Capital System along with the special bonus of working directly with one of my investor partners for both loans and direct partnerships, all courses were shipped last week so if you didn't get yours yet, it's coming in the mail soon.
I already sent out the contact information to my special investor so that those who got in on this deal could contact him ASAP without waiting for the course to be printed and shipped. This was a good move on my part -- sending out his contact info beforehand -- because he's already done 2 loans and put 1 apartment building partnership deal under contract. Not bad for only 2 weeks in on this program.
But last week my investor contacted me with a complaint. (I knew it was coming and he was thoroughly warned about how some of my students can be. Some are uneducated about real estate investing, don't know what they're doing while begging for a "mentor," have poor communication skills, or have a pompous attitude problem. Worst case, he'll get all of those qualities in one single student, probably driving him to instant insanity.) His complaint was that it seemed a lot of my students were "wet behind the ears" when it came to submitting deals or loan requests. Again, he was warned. He just didn't realize that this would encompass 99% of the submissions he's received so far.
This is, of course, resulting in a lot of rejected partnership and loan requests. Unlike myself who will take the time to explain what the problem is with a submission, my investor will just delete the request without any follow-up or notice to my student. So, yes, this is a great benefit to students who know what they're doing: being able to submit directly to one of my investor partners has to be one of the most valuable opportunities I've ever offered to my students. But what's the benefit of something so valuable if some students simply don't know what to do with it?
Maybe you've noticed but we're rolling up quite quickly to the end of this year (already)! I can't believe school started for my daughter already and that we're already talking about Halloween costumes. Somebody reminded me on Facebook that there are only X amount of Fridays left before Christmas...and this was over a month ago. There are much fewer now like 17 Fridays to be exact. I just counted.
I was talking to Rose the other day and realized that I hadn't done ANY real estate related mentorship groups this entire year. I got a late start, not doing my first mentorship until the spring. All 3 of my groups so far had nothing to do with real estate. The first was my Money Funnel Mentorship followed by my Success Breakthrough & Transformation and finally my Distribution Profit Money Funnel Mentorship, which is still going on right now.
Between my investor whining about how my students don't seem to know what their doing and coming to grips with the reality that I haven't run ANY type of real estate trainings online in the past year, I think it's time now. It's time to do an 8-week online real estate mentorship group. In the very least, I have to bring many of my new students up to speed on what to do, how to get started, and how to profit from apartment building real estate which, of course, is the best kind of passive income there is. And for my older students who should know everything by now, maybe it's time the enroll in a refresher course.
Effective 2016, I've done a complete make-over on how my mentorship groups are being conducted. In years past, I'd give daily assignments for 8 weeks, sparing webinars (if any at all), a handful of IM sessions and sometimes I'd do phone consulting sessions. But the groups I run now are completely different. Each week there is a thorough webinar training that runs between 60 and 90 minutes long, each week. After each webinar session, I send out what's called an Action Sheet where there are a listing of tasks that were covered in the webinar session that all must be completed before my students are able to participate in the next webinar training. For those who can't make the trainings, each webinar is recorded then uploaded into a members-only password-protected access page where the video, PDF of the presentation and the Action Sheets for each week are located.
These groups are intense but extremely effective. And this next group is the first and only real estate group for 2016.
