Melinda Gates On Why They Share Success Stories – Video Link

Do you have a success story to tell?
At our monthly WREIA meeting on July 18th we are going to focus on our WREIA members.
This is your chance to share your success story.
This is an opportunity for you to share the spotlight with other WREIA members.

But….. Why?

You have likely heard of Bill Gates. One of the wealthiest people on the planet.  He has pledged the bulk of his net worth to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

 Here is a link to their foundation page, where you will find a short 1 minute video by Melinda Gates, his wife and the co-chair of the foundation. She tells you why their foundation shares success stories.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation tackles enormous problems. For them, sharing stories is a great way to communicate the progress being made by their efforts.
For us, it works the same way. 
Your story could help motivate another new investor to keep going. The person sitting a few rows behind you at the next WREIA meeting may find some insight or encouragement in your story and eventually get a property under contract –  and wholesale the contract for a few thousand dollars.
I realize for some people a simple wholesale contract is no big deal.  The rest of us understand that with a few thousand dollars someone can pay off a debt, or take a trip with a loved one.  Maybe they will choose to reinvest it in themselves or give back to a favorite church, temple or charity.
In short – we share our stories because it helps everyone in our community learn what it takes to be successful in real estate.
Ok, so that takes care of the why.  In a few days I want to share with you a few more details and give you some ideas on how you can come up with a story to share.
If you already have something to share – just let me know.
If you want to participate – this is going to be pretty simple.
Email me at  or
call the office at 301-881-5541.
It’s that easy.
Join us for the food, the network, the learning and expand your belief that other people are out here in the DC area making money in Real Estate.
Save a few dollars and reserve your seat early.  Then, come join us at WREIA on July 18th. It will be a great way to start the summer season, get you motivated, and get some momentum for the rest of 2016.
Reserve your seat for the July 2016 WREIA meeting here.
Make this year a great year for your business!
Let me know how I can help you,
