All the downsizing and our current economy has encouraged many who have been employees to change hats and become entrepreneurs. What has come to light is, most entrepreneurs know a product or service really well and decide to go into business for themselves, but they don’t know what they don’t know about running a business.

Neither Andy Heller nor his real estate partner Scott Frank, ever intended to become full time real estate investors. However, in their approximately 40 years of combined real estate investing, they have developed a long term real estate investing strategy that has allowed them to make loads of money while minimizing their time, effort and headaches.
On a part-time basis, while involved in successful non-real estate careers and putting their families first, Scott and Andy have bought, rented and sold approximately 100 homes. Additionally, in many years, they have made more money in their 2-5 hour a week “side real estate investing job” than in their 40+ hour per week day job. Read More→
Have you ever sat down with a small group like-minded people with whom you felt like you were mentally connected, that you could think more clearly and that ideas came to you more naturally when you were in their presence. This feeling of mental connectedness is an excellent example of what the late, great Napoleon Hill spoke about in his famous book “Think and Grow Rich”.
Hill said “The mastermind group is a coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony. No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”
A good mastermind has a synergy of energy, purpose, commitment and excitement that each member brings to the group. Participants constantly raise the bar by challenging each other to brainstorm new ideas, create and implement new goals, stay focused, and provide each other with the ongoing support they need. Working with a group of like-minded, motivated and enthusiastic individuals will definitely help you expand your mind and achieve more than you have ever thought possible.
