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?

Come join us tonight and see how using a coach can make a huge difference in your success as a real estate investor.  Those of us that do so wouldn’t do it any other way.  Doors open at 6:30pm, and the meeting starts officially at 7pm.  Atlanta REIA Members attend for FREE and can bring a guest for FREE this month.  Additional guests are just $5 cash at the door.  We request that all attendees purchase a meal and tip the wait staff generously since they allow us to use the meeting room at no charge.  We end the meeting at 9pm, then we hang around for Late Night Networking until 10pm.  This is where friends and deals are made, so be sure to stick around for this great part of the evening.  Don’t forget to wear your cowboy hat, boots, and clothes to get in on the Wild West Spirit and Cowboy Up for the night—see you there!
