John: Hey, John Burley here guys. Look, a successful business model has three elements. Great idea, real estate investing, you already got it. Number two, monetize. You have to get paid first. That’s missing. Number three, have the money raised first. Real estate investors got it wrong. We put the cart before the horse. We’re taught to go out and look for deals and then hope we’ll find money. Stop it.
Always raise the money first. We show you and teach you exactly how to do it. That’s the most important thing in any business and that’s the most important thing in real estate. Raise the money first. Get paid to raise the money and then go buy deals with lots of cash and the credit already fully established.
