Mr. TyCoonPlease be sure to join us at the Beginning Investors Group Online on Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00PM ET with Mr. TyCoon will be teaching our members and guests “Why Wholesaling & Why Now?!.

You’ve probably hear that wholesaling houses is all about “finding bargain properties and passing them along to bargain hunters at a great price”. You’ve probably also heard that “you make your money in real estate when you buy”. At the meeting, Mr. Tycoon is going to show you “when you wholesale houses, you make your money – in cash – before you buy!” He’s also going to show you why finding bargain properties is probably the most important skill you can ever possibly learn as a real estate investor.

You’ll learn:

  • What is means to wholesale a house
  • How wholesaling can be done with very little money, training and absolutely no cred
  • How to wholesale houses part time and make a full time income
  • And answers to your questions and much more!

Mr. Tycoon will teach strategies that will enable you to…

  • Pay off all your debt and past due bills
  • Start building (or re-building) your retirement account so you never have to work about running out of money during retirement
  • Quit your job and live your life in freedom
  • How to get on the fast track to wealth

Wahid Shakur, aka “Mr. Tycoon”, is an internationally renowned Motivational Speaker, Personal Development Coach, Investment Real Estate Guru and Entrepreneur of Success. Mr. Tycoon is legendary for his “tough but fair” deal-making and negotiation skills. His bestselling book, “Success Is Not A Secret, It’s A System,” extracts the lessons he learned on the road to building his successful real estate investment company and personal fortune, and is the “must-have” guidebook to achieving financial and personal success.

Join us on Wednesday April 26th and learn how to get started wholesaling houses or how to take your existing wholesaling business to the next level. You do not want to miss out on this career changing information! We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Be 100% There!

Posted on April 3, 2017 by

How important is it, when meeting with a seller, buyer, renter, realtor or contractor, to be totally focused on that person?  If you’re not paying complete attention to what that person says and how he or she says it (tone of voice, hand gestures, body position, eye movement), isn’t there a good chance you’ll miss critical information that’s being shared with you?

The number of people who are not 100% there during a meeting has become epidemic – and is a major pet peeve of mine!  If you’re over fifty years old, you already know what I’m talking about.  Baby Boomers grew up without cell phones, emails, and text messages.  Heck, we didn’t even have phone answering machines!

Here’s an example of this epidemic at work.  A real estate investor needed help structuring a deal and asked for an hour of my time.  He drove up from Atlanta and met me at the Adairsville Waffle House. Read More→
