Two Recent Meetings – One Advanced, One “Newbie”

Re: One Advanced, One “Newbie”

Over the last month, our WREIA Members met at a local restaurant for our last “Members Only” meeting of the year.

Before that, we also had a meeting for our continued “Wholesale” discussion. That meeting was packed with people at the beginning of their real estate journey.

We had about 18-20 people at both meetings. What these people didn’t know is that I was really listening for “issues”.

Where are they struggling?

What problems are they facing?

Is getting started the problem, or is the struggle found in growing and getting bigger?

When I got back from both meetings I digested the conversations and started taking a few notes.

You can hear my advice for those people and some of their specific problems if you join us at our final WREIA meeting of 2017.

At WREIA next Monday we will “wrap up” 2017. (We take off December to spend time with family, friends and “sharpen the sword” for ourselves.)

In fact, I just got off the phone a few minutes ago after I got the question “Why are you sharing these details? Are you sure you want to do this?”

In short, the answer is this. “If I share my experiences – good and bad – from the last 20 years, it might make your journey in this business a little easier.”

No matter where you are in your career there will be something for you. Getting started to getting bigger – you are going to take something away from Monday night that will help you as you enter into 2018.

I hope you can join us on Monday at our WREIA meeting as we then continue to discuss our favorite topics of the year and go over some of the common characteristics the successful people in our field share and how it helps them achieve their goals.

The easiest way I know to achieve your own success is to emulate those people who are already successful.

Come out and spend some time networking with other investors in the DC area. Enjoy a bite to eat and share your goals for 2018.

2018 is right around the corner. I still can’t believe it.

Are you ready for 2018?

What are you going to do to have even more success next year?

See you Monday!
