The CarrotCast Podcast for Real Estate Investors & Agents

I've got a great, great guest on this episode of the CarrotCast. I've known Justin for years and years. He's actually at my last Mastermind in Sedona Arizona, so I wanted to bring him on to talk about how he's building his business, and what he's really shifted in a big way for 2018. What was working for him to wholesale and flip 100 plus houses last year, is not working for him going into this year quite so much, so he is going to be adjusting those in massive ways.

Justin has a great story. He is kind of one of those guys who came from being completely broke, and he talks about a pretty funny story of how he and his friend kind of skirted the car impound people by trading cars multiple states away for a period of time to keep their cars a little bit longer. Some funny, funny stuff, entrepreneur story stuff. He also digs into the mindset and how they scaled their business from doing a couple deals to over a hundred in a year. And they've done 700+ deals so far in their career. He'sbreak down breakdown what's working for them now versus what wasn't.

Let's dive into Justin Colby's story on how he went from being broke and struggling to scale his business working five hours a week in his business now, how he formed a great partnership, what to look for in partnerships. All kinds of amazing things!

I was Boise, Idaho, about three or four months back at a mastermind and met amazing, amazing people. Some people literally have businesses doing 50, 100 plus million a year. And people from different types of industries, a little of everything was in there. And there was this lady there that she and I connected, hit it off and said, "We need to hop on and do a podcast." And she's in the real estate market. She's the number one real estate agent in Brentwood, California and sold 144 homes last year.

She started like a lot of us start, where your back is against the wall and you really need to go out there and make something of yourself or create a business or create the income. She was the same way. She went through a really, really terrible divorce and some other things and she walks you through that time in her life and how she went on to them build this business.

And she also breaks down her marketing strategies. Exactly what she's doing to grow that business. It's very similar to the way we teach. It's using content and it's going after being consistent. But she does it in a very specific way. So we invited her on the podcast, under the CarrotCast, and she is a Carrot customer, by the way, an AgentCarrot customer as we're in BETA, with her and lots of other agents. We're really building out the AgentCarrot platform.

Just go to agentcarrot.com, to get on that. Or if you're listening to this one, AgentCarrot is rolled out, you can go to agentcarrot.com and join if you're a real estate agent. But we're going to break apart her story, the mindset tricks that she uses that work insanely well for her, to get her mindset orientated and also, what is her marketing mix, that does 150 plus houses a year, as Brentwood California's number one real estate agent. We're going to break all that down in this episode of the CarrotCast. And I think you're going to insanely, insanely enjoy it. All right, without further ado, welcome on Krista Mashore.

On this episode of the CarrotCast, I'm going to talk about attracting a mentor and how you can kill your chances of working with them in a matter of moments.

It doesn’t matter if you're a new entrepreneur. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced entrepreneur. You should always be mentoring someone as well as be a mentee.

That means you need the exchange of knowledge and the exchange of value and the exchange of real conversation on a consistent basis.

There is a right way and wrong way to go about getting a great mentor.

Your mindset from the start has to be on what you can do for them, not what they can do for you.

Ask more questions if you’re trying to find a mentor. What do they care about? What are their passions? Then, how can you provide value to what they care about?

Be curious about their story. Provide value and excitement to the person that you’re trying to gain knowledge from.

Please, please, please don’t waste time. Give value to them and show true interest in them. Stop selling you and your ideas.
