People will often think of negotiation as a battle. But by bringing humanity back to the table through education and real conversations, investors can not only close more deals but also serve more people which is what this is all about. Today we are going to wrap up the tactical elements of this series by showing you how to break down seller walls to both help and close more of the leads you are already bringing in.

“It's not about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.” - Rocky Balboa/Sylvester Stallone.

This is not fix-all advice. BUT, I can tell you about the a very common thread that I see in people that stall out and don’t get back up vs those who remain steadfast (and ultimately, more content) under trial. I call it the gap. And I feel it’s one of the biggest reasons as to why so many of us struggle with motivation to move forward at times. Hopefully you can relate to this one.

Bank loans don’t let you build relationships OR scale your business. Not to mention all the deals they won't even touch! That’s why today we’re covering: How to create a deal package that lenders want to see, what kind of terms to expect, how to network and find the right lenders, when you should use your own private capital.  Our guest is April Crossley.

Fast forward to today- in 12 years of investing she’s never used a dime of her own money to buy any of her flips or rental properties. So whether you want to become a private lender or you just need to be able to close more deals, She’s about to teach you how. Listen in.

“Consuming content educates us. Creating content educates others.” - KC Procter
One of the biggest things that can lead to us feeling unmotivated is this right here- Your consumption vs creation balance is off. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself “creative” or not, but we all live a process of creation that can dramatically affect our energy AND our output, whether that’s showing up for our business, our family and those who need us most, or our future. To get your balance in check, listen in.

P.S. - Are you a Hype Dad?... That question has nothing to do with this the topic in this episode, but is one of the fun little tidbits I talk about. Listen in :)

Matt Slowik has always been interested in real estate, but he is just now taking it up a notch by launching his business and his Carrot site. Last year, he stumbled upon the Carrotcast, listening to 255 episodes last year alone! Currently, he is working on his Master’s Degree and is employed full-time as a safety compliance officer.  That said, he was probably our top listener in 2020.  Last year alone, he listened to over 250 episodes, which equated to about 10,555 minutes! I know what my favorite episodes are, but we felt there was tremendous value in seeing which episodes resonated most with a newer investor. Today we are chatting with Matt to learn about his business, what he’s learned, and how he balances his busy lifestyle!

The importance of the agent investor/relationship is something we’ve been talking about for a while now here at Carrot. We’ve often said that in the future, agents will need to invest, and investors should be licensed in order to better serve their leads. Well, the future is now. Now, more than ever, people are looking for ways to sell their homes. With the rise of iBuyers, people are looking to other sources when they are thinking about putting their home on the market. The agent or investor who is able to offer multiple solutions, is going to be able to complete more actions and help more people. Here’s how Carter Crawley is doing it.

Her website may not look like other Carrot sites you have seen in the past, and that is exactly why she is converting so well.

Back in May, I shared the data behind how covid is affecting motivated sellers and exactly how investors should be adapting through this unpredictable market. Now, this was all on a private Zoom call with our friends at RealEstateInvestor.com. I want to share it with you because the concepts and strategies we go over are just as relevant today as they were a few months ago. When others are not willing to change with the times, this is your chance to serve people better than ever, and come out thriving.

How often do you get to the end of the week without getting the most importing things done? We make our to-do lists, tackle it as fast as we can, and somehow still struggle to move the needle. I learned a couple tricks recently that opened my eyes to how I can flip the script on this, and it works. This is how we accomplish the things that matter most, create time for what matters most, and fight the overwhelm. Listen in.

Working with the right partner can help you become a better version of yourself. This is true for Keith Sant and Norberto Ponce who have never met in person, yet have positively influenced each other both in life and in business. Here’s how they do it…

About a year ago, we connected with a new member here at Carrot, and he's one of the most passionate, action-taking, just hustlers, that you'll find out there.

I was so impressed. He joined Carrot a week or two later. He was up here in Oregon at our Carrot HQ for the very first CarrotCamp, and it was just really, really amazing, and I was crazy impressed seeing what he had been doing in Dallas, Texas, as a solo operator, using some crazy, crazy, creative marketing.

You're going to be hearing about some of that marketing here on this call, but that's not the end story.

When I was down in Dallas a few months ago, I met him and his two business partners, and since the time I'd first met him, about a year ago, he formed a partnership with two other local investors.

Since then, they've really scaled up their business in a big way, and they've done it by carving out a niche to where they can close deals that most other investors in their market can't.

They have other investors sending them deals all the time that say, "Hey, we can't figure out how to make this a deal," and they make them deals.

There's one deal that he talks about on this podcast where the person was going through foreclosure. He was able to help save the house. They stayed in the house, and he gave them money, $20 grand or whatever it was, for her daughter's wedding, and not just that, they're going to end up making a really, really, really big payday at the end of this because they are creative with their deals.

That was the deal that everyone else looked at and said, "There's nothing here," and he turned it into a $30,000+ payday and helped the seller in a big way, and that seller's just eternally grateful.

I want to introduce you to Tang Nguyen and his business partners with The Odd Brothers, Fred and Eric. Two amazing dudes, as well, and listen to their story. Be inspired by how they saw collaboration, not competition, with other people in their market. See how they're being creative and thinking about deals in different ways.

When entering a tighter market, you need to be more creative with your deals. You need to find ways to collaborate with other investors, not be competing with them, and shift that mindset, you all.

This is a collaborative industry. When you look at your competition as competition and not as a collaboration, that's when it gets really, really hard. That's when you're out on an island by yourself.

They get emails and text messages every single day from local wholesalers and flippers who say, "Man, I've got this deal. I don't know how to structure it. Is this something you can handle?"

Introducing Tang Nguyen, Fred, and Eric from The Odd Brothers, and an amazing, amazing story. Dive in.

I’m 3 weeks into sabbatical at the time of recording this and wanted to share something that’s really impacted me recently. Magical moments. It’s been so long since I disconnected from work like this that it’s given me the perspective to see what I’ve been missing out on. And it’s giving me the creativity and wisdom to figure out how to create these moments more often and get the most out of them. Tune in to hear how you can make the most of the time you were given, whether you are caught in the grind or on vacation yourself.

Radio is old-school. Because of this, investors and agents will confuse themselves with their target demographic, avoiding radio advertising altogether. However, if you are an investor looking deals in your area, your target demographic is very likely listening to the radio! Today, we sat down with Chris Arnold to learn more about how he had relied on radio advertising to build and grow his multiple companies. Learn about what works, what to avoid, and how to build a business that offers freedom and impact.
