SPEAKS

SOME WILL, SOME WON'T, SO WHAT, NEXT!!!

Posted December 11, 2017

 

You will wake up in five years somewhere. How do you want that somewhere to look?

Many in business will get beaten up today and sadly, relive it tomorrow, agonizing about what they did wrong, what they didn't do, what they should have said. It's okay to reflect, but remember the lesson to be learned:

SOME WILL, SOME WON'T, SO WHAT, NEXT!!!

Some business transactions will go well and some will not. But, adopt this attitude:

 

"So what, next!!!"

Instead of fretting over a lost business transaction - wake up tomorrow, smile, and prepare for your next successful accomplishment. Pick yourself up, dust off, renew your positive ‘can do’ spirit.

Then, down the road a ways you'll reach the somewhere you should be.

What will that somewhere look like?

It will look like the very best you could do, and it will be a somewhere much better than the alternatives.

In troubling times, shake off a bad day - ready yourself for tomorrow. It’s a battle between you and yourself.

 

Not every real estate development will come to fruition. But keep trying and the next one, or the one after that, will put you on the path to success.

THE BRICKLAYER

Posted December 6, 2017

 

The brick Layer skillfully applies cement with his trowel onto a bottom brick and then sets the new brick on top – tapping gently but adding no pressure.

 

If the brick Layer applied pressure pushing down on the new top brick, then the cement between the two bricks would get squeezed out. Also, there would be no way to measure the push of the pressure and so all the concrete walls would be uneven.

 

And so, when you’ve completed a masterful real estate development Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study as taught and mentored in the Course, and you’re meeting with prospective investor partners, think of the brick Layer and apply the knowledge of your development through the Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study and place no pressure on the potential investor partner.

 

The bricks adhere to each other naturally – the investor will see the value of your development as an investment by accepting the solid facts in your Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study.

 

A positive result at your meeting with an investor will only occur if you apply no pressure.

 

At the blitz point as taught in Course Section 4, you want to be executing and submitting your work to your contact list as taught and then meeting with a minimum of 8-10 interested investors during a ten day period. In this way, you gain healthy competition and synergy for involvement in your development.

 

Investors will soak up and soak in the details of your professional and accurate Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study.

 

When you allow investors quiet space to set in their minds that your development represents exactly what they desire and want, then you have learned the art of the brick Layer as it relates to people and investors and decisions about investments.

 

And so, when you ask me, “what should I say to the investor to convince them to invest in my development,” I say to you, present your facts honestly, let your real estate development Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study speak for you, and at the meeting, apply no pressure.

 

Enough of the investors will want to invest in your development – assuming you’ve put together a factual, fabulous and accurate real estate development Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study.

 

At these meetings, with conviction in your development, gently tap into the highlights of what makes your development such a sound investment – just like the brick Layer gently taps on the brick to secure it in place.

POSSIBLE

Posted November 27, 2017

 

Try not to dwell on what you can or cannot do – instead, set impossible goals.

 

Youth taught me that I could do anything. Blinded by youth and innocence, I could never see impossible.

 

So what happens, what can change the euphoria of life? Simple, a person matures and starts acting like an adult.

 

No matter what you’re facing  – Make this time in your life memorable. Decide everything is possible.

 

Doesn’t matter how many people tell you otherwise. These other people have lost their youthful innocence – reclaim your youthful innocence where everything becomes possible.

 

Your power of belief will override any of your shortcomings.

 

I know many of my students face personal tragedy, personal matters, financial stress, disappointment etc. but now is not the time to dwell on your bad days – now, as you work hard in this Course, it’s time to believe you can do anything – you will do everything, nothing is impossible.

 

With one life to live, it’s much better for you to believe everything is possible. Whenever you’re thinking impossible, think, remind yourself that millions before you already made impossible possible. Now, it’s your turn.

ONE OF A KIND

Posted November 20, 2017

 

Today I watched a one of a kind actor in a televised interview talk about someone he felt was his one of a kind actor idol.

 

It’s not easy to be a one of a kind – now that’s an understatement.

 

But when my students take my Mentoring Course and turn it into a life-changing real estate development and occupation, that’s when I cheer and feel very happy.

 

Real estate developments are sprouting up everywhere.

 

Right now, with the Fed manipulated stock market possibly ready for a slide in the next six months, and a pent up demand in real estate, and investors finally looking at hard assets, - yes, these will be the days of the emerging real estate developer.

 

New and emerging developers will be filling the void in local communities where DEMAND is greatest.

 

The student Course developments I see with each new class continue to change lives, making lifetime investments for students.

 

I’ve traversed many shaky bridges, climbed over too many rugged mountains and I know good things can come and go. And this is the time for the emerging developer – the entrepreneur/student who says, “Yes, I can do it.”

 

By the way, it was the esteemed actor, Terrence Stamp talking about his one of kind actor idol, Marlon Brando.

 

And I’m talking about my students who make me very proud – and it’s seeing your success that make me feel like a one

HOW TO DEVELOP REAL ESTATE


TIME, TALENT & RESOURCES

Posted November 13, 2017

 

From the first Real Estate Development Seminar I held in San Francisco back in 1973, I have always proclaimed that success boils down to TIME, TALENT & RESOURCES.

 

Not everybody has the RESOURCES – Money, Assets, and high Net Worth.

 

But everyone has the Time.

 

And everyone who is highly motivated and determined can learn the skills of Talent.

 

Truth is, any day I’d rather wake up with the Time and Talent than just the Resources.

 

With Time and Talent, you can conquer the World of business.

 

The folks with the RESOURCES need you if you possess the Time and Talent.

 

Anyone who has come to know me through association or through this Real Estate Development Online Mentoring Course knows this is my legacy Course – and so, I tell it like it is, or I believe it to be.

 

Honesty guiding me each step of the way in what I teach and mentor and calling upon my experiences (in a life filled with them), I view as my final life’s statement. So why not let it all hang out and speak only the truth, the truth behind the truth, the knowledge behind the knowledge.

 

And I do.

 

And so now I tell you – LEARN THE TALENT.

 

For so many years, average Americans or citizens around the world who were bright, intelligent and determined actually were led to believe that starting a real estate development business would be impossible without money.

 

And so, the wealthy, the successful developers only - cornered the market.

 

Not anymore.

 

Hardworking students are gaining the Talent end, and they’ve got the time.  Those with the RESOURCES need hard real estate developments for their investment portfolios.

 

Right now, as my student, invest your time and learn the Talent and the Resources will find their way to you.

 

An Award of Distinction Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study is worth $30,000+ in the market. And, hardworking students in the current class are proceeding with their Course development and landowners are coming to them asking the student to co-develop their land. And so, six months of hard work to gain the Talent will turn into a prosperous career as real estate developer.

WARRIOR

Posted November 10, 2017

 

Real Estate Development Made Easy - Not going to happen!

 

Real Estate Development e.g. developing real estate or raw land or property requires knowledge and skill.

But that's just for starters.

 

What about execution? You need to possess the X-Factor to make it happen.

Some people can learn but cannot do. Some people struggle to learn but can do. Some people can learn and can do.

 

As my student, I tell you this: To become a successful Real Estate Developer, or successful in any walk of life, you will need to be diligent, passionate, competitive, demanding of yourself, determined, resourceful, creative, unrelenting - you need to be a Warrior.

 

A Warrior is an independent-minded entrepreneur at heart (male or female) with extraordinary latent talent and ability - striving to gain control of their life and their future income.

 

There's far more joy in fighting relentlessly to become a Warrior than waiting for someone or something to lift you up. Nobody is going to come to your rescue. For many, it's time to take a stand now or give in to defeat.

 

I have seen dark days. Most likely you've seen them too. It may be time for you to fight.

 

The only way to change and take control of your life and future requires your belief in yourself, knowledge and skill, and the courage of a Warrior.

PUSH THAT ROCK UP TO THE TOP OF THE HILL

Posted November 6, 2017

 

If it was easy to control your future and put together $5,000,000-$25,000,000 Joint Venture Developments and earn 10%-25% equity ownership, everybody would be doing it.

 

It’s not easy, it’s not meant to be easy, and I did not write an easy 6-Month Real Estate Development Mentoring – Certification Course.

 

I have put the last chapter of my life into my Legacy Course and to make a difference in the lives of my students.

 

In my life, I came to understand - nothing comes easy.

 

The economic environment today has turned on and turned against honest, hardworking entrepreneurial individuals making it impossible for you to rise and control your future. And it’s going to get even much more challenging, and sadly, desperate.

 

The complete restructuring of wealth accumulation since the 2008 great recession places you at the bottom and gives the wealthy an opportunity to gobble you up.

 

So many have already been eaten up alive by corruption, FED manipulated interest rates, Wall Street fiasco – a consortium with one goal in mind – help the rich get richer – increase exports, stimulate GDP and then, as a last thought, maybe it will trickle down to average people. It does not trickle down and the governments around the World know that. And in truth, you become the collateral damage.

 

And so, only you can push that rock to the top of the hill to survive and prosper.

 

My Course is not just about real estate development knowledge, skills and wisdom, it’s about preparing you to fight harder than you every fought in your life.

 

The Course requirements are not created to be easy or to give you a false sense of success. I wrote this Course to also teach you that you need to push much harder than ever before - to break down and smash the tendency to cling to mediocrity and to strengthen your backbone so nobody would or could ever stand in your way or prevent you from succeeding.

 

So, whenever the thought crosses your mind that you can’t do this Course, or it’s too hard, do not give in to that notion. I say to you, “kill it”, and destroy any thought of quitting. Complete it – even if you’re not a top student, complete it and you will be a changed person.

 

When you finish all requirements of this Course, you will understand why I’m fighting for you, and you will finally see the new you – ready to push that rock up to the top of the hill and gleefully smile watching it roll down the other side of the hill taking you on the new landscape of empowerment and success.

Dad, Thanks for the Fishing Pole

Posted November 6, 2017

 

Every day real estate developers go fishing. Thank God each of you have a fishing pole.

When you're an entrepreneur, you had to learn somewhere along the line how to fend for yourself and make things happen.  At the end of the week, if you made any income, it was because someone gave you the fishing pole in your life, taught you how to survive without a paycheck.

Every real estate developer is to be commended for fishing in such troubled waters since 2008 tough economic times. And now, as the real estate development economy improves, entrepreneurs Worldwide ramp up their activities.

Take a moment and pause, and quietly thank the person(s) in your life who taught you along the way and gave you one of the greatest gifts of all...the heart, the spirit, the knowledge and the strength of purpose to be an entrepreneur and get up every day and go fishing for new developments or joint venture developments.

Once upon a time the entrepreneur prospered in America. We need more today. Are you REDI?

 

Keep learning! Keep doing! Be exceptional! Never give up!

Dead Bolt

Posted October 30, 2017

 

There’s only one purpose of the Dead Bolt Lock and everyone knows exactly what it is the moment it’s installed on the inside of your home or apartment’s door.

 

That purpose is to prevent anyone from coming into your home or apartment when you are there.

 

The Dead Bolt Lock serves no other purpose.

 

And it does not require any explanation. It is inherently known that a Dead Bolt Lock is to keep others from getting into your home or apartment when you are inside.

 

Every great device or new idea or invention shows its purpose immediately, without words or explanations.

 

And every successful real estate development has one purpose – to fill a demand in the marketplace. The more successful it is, the fewer words it needs to explain why it was developed.

 

And so, as my student, to capture complete control over your future in a harsh economy where so many people are falling through the cracks (because of no worthwhile employment or business opportunities) you need to select a Course development that mimics the singular purpose Dead Bolt Lock.

 

Your Course development needs to have a distinct and clear purpose – which purpose is to answer a physical structure demand in the marketplace. When you develop it, everyone will know why because the purpose of its existence is immediately apparent. And it needs no explanation. It exists because it serves a purpose – it’s in demand.

 

Every successful development waits to be discovered long before it is developed – but it takes an imaginative, creative, hardworking and entrepreneurial spirited person to bring it to reality.  And when you do it – like the Dead Bolt, its purpose is clear. And everyone says; “Now why didn’t I think of that?”

Real Estate Development: Creative, hard work and lucrative.

Posted October 27, 2017

 

See how Brian S., a former corporate executive and recent REDI graduate used the skills taught in the REDI Foundation Real Estate Development Mentoring - Certification Course to repackage land development, create several millions in wealth and equity ownership for himself, and become a joint venture developer - and continues to generate future development pipeline opportunities.

 

 

 

 

”Real estate development is the perfect profession for me as I have the opportunity to combine my creative side with hard business skills while generating positive economic growth for the community. Since graduating the REDI Program, I have been actively involved in several large development projects. I am developing my 20 acre tract of land in Colorado I purchased for $450,000 (with signed up franchise tenants ) following the Mentoring of Richard Michael Abraham. Using the skills taught in the REDI Program, I have subdivided the land and sold a 5.4 acre lot to a car dealership (for a the price I paid for the entire 20 acres) and contributed a 3 acre lot for a JV hotel development with Wyndham. This 69-key new construction hotel (Microtel by Wyndham) is currently financed and under construction. Foundations are being poured next week! The total value of this project is $5.6mm and I own 50% and my JV partner owns 50%. And my remaining land to be developed is now valued at $2,000,000. I have several other future projects in the pipeline, involving a 292 acres under contract - which I plan to repackage, subdivide into residential, retail and mixed-use projects and sell off. Longer term, I have put together a joint venture property development in Pembra, Mozambique.” Brian S.
