Here we are. Summer is coming to an end. My daughter started high school this year. Here in California, we start school in the middle of August. School seems to start earlier and earlier with each passing year.
Anyway, here's the reason I'm sending you this email: Three weeks ago I had this conversation with my most successful real estate investing student (now investor partner), Andrew Shaw. He's been working one-on-one with some of my higher-level students in getting them funding for their deals.
But that's not what he wanted to talk to me about.
He said, "I know what you're talking about now...you know, all that zen sh** you kept telling me all these years? I get it now."
I didn't understand his point or what he was trying to tell me. All I cared about was whether he's speaking at the upcoming two-day BNB Boot Camp Seminar in Burbank, California on October 1st and 2nd. (I already knew what he'd tell me though.) I think based on the radio silence, he figured out that I was clueless as to what he was trying to say.
Then he said, "You know I am committed to the Funding On Demand Group for the rest of this year and all of next year, right? But after that, I'm out."
"Out? What does that mean?" I asked.
"I decided to retire. There's only so much money I can earn and I got kind of complacent with the Airbnb investing...not having to stress out so much. And I really got used to that. I talked to my CPA and he told me that I have enough to retire. Hell, my daughter Katie and her kids...when she has some kids, that is...they'll all be taken care of for life with all my investments. So, I decided that I'm retiring."
"When?" I did NOT see this coming! "When are you retiring?"
"You know how you talk about picking your 'I Quit' date? Well, I decided that my 'I Quit' date is December 31, 2023. Next year."
Damn, I didn't see this coming. We had already ramped up his Funding On Demand Group and I was expecting that he would offer funding on student deals for at least the next three years. Never did I imagine that it would be so short-lived!
So, it took me awhile to figure out how I was going to break the news to everyone...especially for those of you who are currently part of the Funding On Demand Group. (It's only a year group anyway.) You have one year. And that's it. The last people we can enroll into the Funding On Demand Group will likely be the last week of December or the first week of January because it is a one-year group. So, for those of you who have been sitting on the fence "thinking about it," I'm here to tell you that the opportunity to work directly with Andrew Shaw is coming to an end. CLICK HERE if you think you might be interested in joining the Funding On Demand Group.
And that leads me to the second thing...the BNB Boot Camp Seminar.
To be crystal clear, I did NOT want to do another event, did NOT plan to do another event, and had NO other events scheduled on my calendar. I think I mentioned that last year. NO MORE EVENTS for me.
But...Andrew has a way of persuading people to do things that they otherwise don't want to do.
So, he convinced me to do the two-day event in Burbank, California for October 1st and 2nd because he said he'd be there. He won't speak. (He has a major fear of public speaking.) But he said he'd be there, namely for those who are part of the Funding On Demand Apprenticeship Group (also a one-year program). Each person who attends the event who is a Funding On Demand Apprentice Group student will get a 30-minute one-on-one meeting with Andrew in a private conference room. For the rest of you, he'll probably be at the bar in the evening to chat with some of you.
This is exciting because the last time Andrew attended any of my events was in Detroit a few years ago when I was doing a special Underground Secret Event and he was one of the investors that ended up backing almost $20 million in property deals just from that one event. I thought it was funny because Andrew didn't allow me to point him out. He was in the bar in a casual outfit. And I remember sitting at a table nearby with several students, drinking a cocktail, and I looked over at Andrew (who warned me beforehand that he wouldn't be wearing a suit) and I cracked up laughing. Andrew was wearing a black and red plaid lumberjack shirt and a hunting hat. I almost spit vodka and cranberry juice. I remember a couple of students looking at me crazy-like wondering what the hell I was laughing at. I said nothing because...our DEAL has always been that he wanted to meet people "organically" (as he called it) and to NOT know who he was so he could determine if someone would be a good investor-partner fit for him without having any preconceived expectations. (Hey, those were his rules, not mine.)
So, if you're coming to Burbank, you'll probably get to meet Andrew at the bar. Hopefully he's wearing something better than a lumberjack outfit in his attempt to "play himself down" as an "average guy." You'll see. It'll be like "Where's Waldo?" You can see if you can spot him at the bar on the evenings of October 1st and October 2nd at the hotel where we will be hosting the event. (You'll get hotel information once you register by CLICKING HERE.)
As you go through life, you sometimes have the feeling that things will last forever. I certainly didn't think Andrew would be retiring so soon...or that this will be the last event he'll be talking to students at. (Yes, I did ask him if he's open to doing one last event before he retires next year. I promised to throw him a big retirement bash. He gave me a sharp "HELL NO!")
So, this is it. For those of you who want an opportunity to chat with Andrew Shaw in person, your only chance is going to be in Burbank, California on October 1st and 2nd. THERE WILL BE NO OTHER OPPORTUNITIES...EVER! CLICK HERE to register for the event now, if you're not already registered.
And that brings me to the FINAL thing I'd like to tell you.
I am releasing the 2023 Motherload Resource Directory which has EVEN MORE cash and money resources for you to use to get funding for your deals, for starting or buying a business, or just to get out of debt. There's a new online application portal that you'll get access to and this can get you quick approvals on both mortgages and loans. CLICK HERE to get the 2023 Motherload Resource Directory now!
See you at the top!
P.S. I did say something (in the subject line) about me retiring too. Since Andrew Shaw is retiring out of the real estate game, I'm going back to NOT doing any more real estate trainings, events, and mentorship groups after he's done. (He's the only reason why I came back into the world of real estate trainings, events, and mentorships.) So, you'll be losing both of us at the same time. I highly recommend you jump on board with SOMETHING pertaining to real estate investing with us BEFORE we both retire.
