This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Mark and Scott talk with Mike Hambright—
Mike is a successful real estate investor who wanted to give back, so he started a real estate podcast where he interviewed experts in real estate investing. Just under 2 years of doing the podcasts, Mike turned FlipNerd into a membership site and started coaching and training others in real estate.
Mike and Mark both agree that at the end of the day, doing deals is phenomenal but it’s not satisfying. The real satisfaction comes from helping others succeed in this business.
Mike finds that a lot of those who are just starting out don’t understand the importance of the business side of investing because the “reality” house flipping shows glamourize it… you don’t instantly flip a house and get rich, there is a lot of work that goes in behind it!
He explains that the hardest part of the process is finding the deal and three important components necessary to run this business are:
  • Creating systems and processes
  • Lead generation
  • Investing in marketing
Listen in as we extract Mike’s success secrets, including which characteristics are in his magical real estate elixir—Key criteria found in successful investors. There is one in particular that if you don’t have will cause failure early on!
We also tackle:
  • Abundance mentality
  • Shiny object syndrome
  • Dealing with haters
Plus, Scott shares a story of a difficult seller who kept bidding him up and he felt like she didn’t like him. Wait until you hear the goosebump moment after closing the deal with her… it was an eye-opener for Scott!

In This Week's Round Table...
Mark is joined by:
  • Erik Peterson
  • Jeannie Morem
  • Aaron Williams
  • Mimi Schmidt
Jeannie starts us off this week with those irascible HATERS. She’s been getting hate mail and insulting voice messages in response to her mailers. Initially, she gets offended but realizes it’s part of the business and that she must be doing something right.
But, how do we deal with this and stay positive…do we hug our haters or ignore them? And is this something we become immune to?
Everyone recounts their own run-ins with haters and how they deal with it—Erik has sneaky haters, Aarons curse him in a nice manner, and Mimi tells us about one attack that was directed at her personally, not an offer amount.
Then, Mark shares how he categorizes the responses by:
  • Angry
  • Crazy
  • Super mean
His approach is to try to turn those angry responses around into possible sales and gives an example of how he does this, a strategy Mimi says is brilliant!
Then, Mimi brings up a COUNTY TAX situation for our next topic. She went to the website to pay the taxes and found that the payment feature had been turned off and in big red letters it said that the property was going to have a tax certificate sold on it.
Aaron also went through a similar situation on a property he sold on terms. Unbeknownst to him, it had a tax certificate on it. After the terms buyer paid a significant amount towards it, the guy who held the tax certificate contacted Aaron to let him know that the property belonged to him now, the certificate holder!
Find out the outcomes, lessons learned, and how to avoid these situations. Also, find out what Mark says about the overage strategy.
Plus, how do you gain customer trust and loyalty? Jeannie shares her full transparency principles and Erik’s GLUE gifts have them talking!
