Come Learn from “Papa”

Posted on March 21, 2014 by

Good Friday afternoon everyone,

Ron LeGrand is coming to town for a one day event tomorrow. He comes into town about once a year at most and this is a rare opportunity to see him for a very small price. If you have not been introduced to this man, we affectionately call him “Papa” and many of us owe a great deal of thanks to him for sharing his wisdom and knowledge about real estate with us.

If you are having trouble and struggling with getting your real estate career off the ground or if you have been out of the game for a while, this would be a great place for you to be tomorrow. Ron has some new techniques to share with us that can put money – good money – in your pocket within 30 days when you follow his system. I’m really excited to be a part of the Atlanta Homebuyers Society which is intended to help you do just that.

This is not an advertisement. It is not a shameless promo. This is something I am sharing with you that I wholeheartedly believe in, because without Ron, I don’t believe I would have had success in my career that I have been so fortunate to experience. What if spending tomorrow with Ron could change the course of your life for the better? I know it did mine and I hope you will join us tomorrow.   Last I checked, we did have a few seats still available. That was this morning, so if you’d like to join us go ahead and get registered ASAP.

For more information on this event, please go to http://ron.atlantareia.com.

Everybody have a great weekend!

Who’s Your Coach?

Atlanta REIA West Meeting
with Leslie Mathis on March 25th

Leslie MathisHowdy Partners!  Here’s a quick reminder about the Wild Wild West Meeting at 7pm TONIGHT, Monday March 25th, at the Cherokee Cattle Company on Canton Road in Marietta.  Tonight we’re covering some pretty important info that you need to know to catapult your success in your real estate business.  I’m going to let you in on something so obvious that its way too often overlooked.  Being in this business for many years, I am often amused by people that come into real estate excited as can be, only to fizzle out and quit before they even do one deal because they suddenly realize they aren’t going to become wealthy overnight.  Can you name any business or career that you can get involved in that doesn’t require at least some amount of training to be good at it?  Everyone knows you can’t become a doctor without medical school, internships, licensure, etc., right?  Real estate offers opportunities for wealth, lifestyle, and freedom way above that of the average doctor.  So why do so many people mistakenly believe that they can be successful in real estate without training and effort?  Doesn’t that seem absurd when you really stop and think about it?

Now, its definitely true that real estate is the business that most millionaires are made in.  However, just like with any business, trade, craft, or skill, you need to learn the tools, techniques, and systems that will lead you to success.  Then you have to go out and actually apply what you’ve learned to make things happen and create wealth.  It’s not going to happen simply because you’ve decided to get into real estate investing, any more than picking up a basketball will make you play like Michael Jordan.  Speaking of Michael Jordan, he doesn’t just rely on what he knows about basketball and go on that alone—HE HAS A COACH.  His coach guides and directs him and pushes him to be a better player.  His coach sees things about his playing that he can’t see on his own.  His coach helps him to excel and be one of the best.  Is real estate investing any different?  No its not.  The fastest way to success in anything, including real estate, is to work closely with someone that has documented success in that particular area and have them coach and mentor you.  Sounds simple, right?  Well, there’s a bit more to it than that, and that’s what we’re going to discuss in detail tonight.  We’ll cover things like:

  • Do you really need a mentor or coach?
  • How does a mentoring/coaching relationship work?
  • What should you expect from a mentor?
  • What’s the best kind of mentor or coach for you?
  • What are the benefits of working with a coach?
  • What qualities do you need to possess to be successful in working with a coach?

Rock ShukoorHi there, Partners!  Yee-haw, I just have to share with you an absolutely fabulous opportunity we have coming up for you next Monday at Wild Wild West subgroup of Atlanta REIA.  Our guest speaker has over ten years experience as a real estate investor, consultant, mentor, and coach.  He has done phenomenally well in the business, has a servants heart, and a winning attitude.  I call him “The King of Marketing”, because he has extraordinary talents in marketing, which he uses very effectively to build and run his real estate business (can you say “Empire”?!!).  

Come join us on Monday, February 25th at 6:30 pm at the The Cherokee Cattle Company as Rock Shukoor shares with us how he finds CA$H buyers for his real estate deals.  Rock wholesales a lot of properties consistently, and in order for him to do this, he has to have the cash buyers to wholesale them to, right?  Come get a rare inside peek at Rock’s business, one of the most successful real estate investing businesses I know of.  Rock will show us just how he goes about getting these cash buyers to come out of the woodwork and raise their hands to say, “Yes, I want those houses!”  Duplicate his methods and get cash rolling in to your bank account ASAP!  

If you want more CA$H coming to you in 2013, it just makes great good common cowboy sense to be there Monday night, doesn’t it?  Mark your calendar now—Giddy-up on over and join the posse Monday night, February 25 at 6:30pm at the Cherokee Cattle Company in Marietta. See you there!  Until then, Happy Trails!

Admission to Wild Wild West is FREE for all AtlantaREIA Members, and just $5 per Guest.  In order to keep our meeting space free, we request that you order food and drink to support the restaurant.  And don’t forget-Late Night Networking immediately follows the meeting-stay with us, order you up a drink, and chat with Rock and other investors.  This is a great time to really connect with people that will help your business to grow – don’t miss out!

Joe ThompsonWe’re kicking off 2013 with a bang at the Wild Wild West Group! Saddle up and hold on to your bootstraps, cause believe me, partner, you’re in for a real treat. Join us next Monday, January 28th at 7pm at The Cherokee Cattle Company as we host our special guest speaker, local successful businessman Joe Thompson. Joe is going to talk about New Year’s resolutions and goal setting. Are you gonna be one of the multitudes that throw in the towel, toss another one of your dreams to the wind, or you gonna COWBOY UP and ride that buckin’ bronco to the finish? Are you ridin’ that bull…or just talking some bull? What if you only had to hold on 8 more seconds to win the prize? Could you ride it out…or will you jump off, full of self-doubt, fear, and lack of focus?

Joe holds on and STICKS WITH IT. Yeah, he gets bruised up a bit along the way (all cowboys do!), yet he is walking tall and focused. My daddy always said, if a horse bucks you off, you gotta get right back on. Horses can sense fear a mile away, and so can goals and resolutions. Come learn to lasso yours in and get control of them by “knowin’ where you’re goin’”. It’s a new year, and a new beginning. Joe will show us how we can all set some realistic, easily achievable goals to make 2013 our most successful and profitable year ever. Come learn what SERIOUS goal setting can do for you and your business!

Round up your posse, mosey on over, and we’ll see you there. Doors open at 6:30, program starts at 7pm. And don’t forget Late Nite Networking in the Saloon after the meeting, where you can talk with Joe and network with all the partners. Members attend FREE, and guests are just $5 at the door. Yeeeehaaaaaaa! Remember, you’re either making dust or eating it, so COWBOY UP! Read More→
