What’s Holding You Back, Fear or Ignorance?

What's Holding Back Your Note BusinessI saw this subject line earlier in the week and it stuck with me.

There really are only two things that can hold us back from success in the note business…

      Fear or Ignorance

I can’t help you on fear part. Other than try to keep you motivated to take action. Any action is better than no action.

If you start on a journey in the wrong direction, at least you can change your direction and get back on track.

If you never start, well… you are guaranteed to get nowhere.

It helps to know that people have gone ahead of you and succeeded – paving the way if you will. It has to make it easier.

In the note industry I was able to work with some solid mentors. People that had been there, done that. Certainly I forged new ground in the later years, but in the beginning it helped to have someone tell me where to go.

I have been in the cash flow business for more years now than I care to admit. It changed my life in many ways. From the people I know, to the freedom of living just about anywhere in the world.

I have also dedicated my time, effort, and money to helping others follow that same path…if it is something they desire.

The note business is not for everyone. But it is for many.

I spent the last several years removing the barriers that are in the way for some people.

When people could not find out where to sell mortgages, we created the Note Buyer Directory.

When people didn’t know how to invest in real estate notes, we created the Personal Profit Series: Notes.

When people didn’t know how to find notes, we created an entire online video training where we gave away our closely guarded tips, techniques, and strategies – right down to our actual marketing pieces. We even made sure to include the Directory and PPS in the Finding Cash Flow Notes Training.

Lastly, when people couldn’t find a way to have a professional online presence, we created affordable Note Business Websites.

In a nutshell, we removed the “ignorance” aspect of the equation.

You have all you need to succeed at your disposal, right here, except removing the fear. That comes from you.

One of my favorite quotes is, “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

So, I ask…what would you do and isn’t now the time to remove any barriers holding you back…including fear?

    Here are the things running through my mind currently.
    I get all of the basics, math, financial calculator ect… but let say I market, find the note seller and am able to slice up this deal and serve the perfect offer to the seller… No idea what the next step is, nor how to execute this perfect plan. I don’t have a mentor to lean on to get me over the hump on that first one. Each note deal seems to be unique, which I really like…. I love solving problems, I’m a Network Engineer by trade… but there are so many things that I don’t even know, that I don’t know about notes. If I know about something, I can research it and get more information, but if I don’t know about a cliff and I’m walking around in the dark I can most definitely fall off the cliff!

    I have been bouncing back and for the idea to purchase your training course. Will the training give me ALL of the information on how to get my first deal done or is it high level concepts and theories but not really enough to get the job done?

    I really like the concept that to a person who is highly skilled in the note space they can take a nearly impossible situation and make some lemonade from the lemons where everyone wins and lowers the risk in the deal.

    It makes me really excited seeing these case studies and example deals that have been done. I think I would really enjoy the challenge, I just need some education, direction and guidance on getting the ball rolling.

    My experience thus far has been in Buy and Hold Real Estate and notes seems like the perfect compliment to my existing business. I can see the potential of noes and really would like to get involved in the space.

      Hello Jeff, thanks for the comment,

      Great question. The answer is “yes” – the training gives you everything you need to do a deal…or two…or more 🙂

      When we created the course, both Tracy and I were big about not “holding something back” so you had to purchase. Any other courses are specific to an area (like advance calculations in How to Calculate Cash Flows), etc.

      You will find that Finding Cash Flow Notes Training is VERY thorough.

      Additionally, the course is Guaranteed for 30 days. If for any reason you want a refund, just reach out to us. Frankly, it hardly every happens, but we want people to be happy and we have 100% faith in what we put into this course.

      Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions.
