In this episode, we talk about how to think like a CTO with Joel Beasley, author of Modern CTO, and host of the Modern CTO podcast. Joel talks about getting hit by a car when he was younger and using that rehabilitation period to learn how to code, selling his first technology at the age of 18 for one million dollars, and what he's learned from interviewing so many CTO's.

We can always be even more productive. Time is a very valuable resource, and if you really think about it, being productive is one of the best ways to ensure that you are using your time effectively. As a successful business owner, you no doubt realize just how important productivity is. You have likely done a great deal to ensure that your employees follow procedures that are designed to make them more productive. You have also doubtlessly mastered the ability to keep working and getting things done, even when you are in danger of being distracted or losing focus. But what about those days when it seems like you just can't focus on anything? How can you stay productive when your usual strength of mind just doesn't seem to cut it? There are methods that can be used at any time to help you to keep your work output high, so that you can move towards the next level with no setbacks and minimal frustration. --Jim Rohn said: “At the end of each day you should play back the tapes of your performance. The results should either applaud you or prod you.” Over the next 5 days, we will explore 5 ways to be even more productive. So, tune in tomorrow for tip Number 1.

Many people around the world are caught up in Worry, Fear, Doubt, and Uncertainty. But as I start my week, I am grateful and excited to talk with you about Prosperity, Positivity, Optimism and Hope during these Uncertain and Confusing times. I Attract Success Prosperity Pillar #11 As I've gone through my life, I have learned many lessons on how to stop chasing success and learn to leverage the many resources available to us to Attract Success into my life. I'd like to share a few of those things I've learned to help you do the same. Jim Rohn has my favorite quote of all time… Success is not to be pursued. It is to be attracted by the person you become. Learn to Stop Chasing and Start Attracting Success When I started my career in business (at a very early age), I felt the best way to create an amazing life was to work super hard and make a lot of money. This definitely got me quickly to levels of success I had only imagined I could achieve. But, like many of you, I realize that there was something missing and I wanted more. I wanted to have a life that made me happier and created more fulfilment. So, I started to live my life in a way that made me happy. I travelled and acquired many different things that you would typically associate with success and happiness. Again, I simply wasn't satisfied with the happiness and fulfilment I was feeling. At one point, I wondered if maybe I just wasn't hard wired for happiness. But when I heard the Jim Rohn Quote and started having some very specific conversations with one of my Mentors, I realized that my approach to life, success and happiness was the problem…not me. You see, I realized that I was chasing success too hard, and I needed to learn to attract success, happiness and fulfilment into my life. This was not something that would be easy for me to understand or accept due to my driven nature, but over time I have seen (time and time again) that this principle is a key to Happiness in my life. So, now I have adopted the Mantra, “Take Action and Allow Space for Attraction”. This has allowed me to really benefit from both hard work and leverage of resources in my life. The Universal Law of Attraction The Law of Attraction is a principle you've probably heard of before. Many books and talks have been given on the subject. The law of attraction says that our lives are impacted by Universal Laws just as universal and proven as the Law of Gravity. It is estimated that the law of attraction has influenced over a billion lives since it has been reintroduced as a major concept in the marketplace. However, most people don't really understand what it is and how it works. I encourage you to check out training from Bob Proctor, who really simplifies and breaks down the concept of the Law of Attraction. He says that LOA is governed by 2 laws (not just just one). The first law is the Law of Vibration. The second law is the Law of Attraction. Most people miss the first law which says…. The law of vibration is one of the basic laws of the universe. It decrees that everything moves, nothing rests, and we literally live in an ocean of motion. This is because everything is made of energy. Your body is made of cells, and cells are with molecules and atoms. What created atoms and molecules are the energies vibrating at different frequencies. When you think, you activate your brain cells, and you set up a vibration in your body. When you move your eyes to read this sentence, you activate your brain cells to do it. This also means that the vibration you are in will dictate what you attract into your life. If you are constantly worried and troubled, you will attract a lot of bad energy. And what you fear will come to you. This is why people often say, “You will become what you think about most of the time.” I'll talk more about this later this week, but for now I've seen the Power and Effects of this in my life and if you really think about it…You have too… Everything in Your Life is Made of Energy I wanted to mention one other thing I came across on this subject. Albert Einstein, one of the world's greatest (proven) thinkers of all time was quoted as saying… Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics. I thought this was very interesting to hear from a Science based Thought Leader. But, the more I study quantum physics and success, the more I realize that most solid beliefs and Laws of Success are based in BOTH Science and Philosophy. So, I highly recommend that if you want more Success in your life that you start to understand the principles, laws and forces that are working to shape your life. You cannot just randomly go into the world everyday hoping to create something if you don't understand what could be working against you or FOR YOU. Attracting Success Requires a Strong Mindset There are few Mental Principles and Strategies I've learned to adopt to really apply this concept of Attracting Success. I'll spend more time on these throughout the week, but here are just a few of the Principles I have adopted: Success Requires Uncertainty (life happens for you not to you) Surround Yourself with Positive People (energy will affect results) Learn to Change Your Paradigm (reframe negative situations) Focus on the Questions, Not the Answers (open your mind to possibilities) Start from Solution and Abundance (lack creates lack, solution creates solution) These are just a few of the principles that come to mind right now, but I hope they inspire you to think about areas that you might improve as you move toward Abundance, Success, and Ultimately Become the Best Version of Yourself. Remember, that progressing in your Personal Development is one of the Proven ways to Increase Your Happiness and Fulfilment Level. We must always be Growing if we want to be Happy. Have an Amazing Weekend and I'll see you tomorrow with more thoughts and lessons from my Mentors and Life Experience. George Wright III
In this episode, I talk about who you hang out with and Jim Rohn's concept that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Or, show me your friends, and I'll show you your future. That might be true at certain times of your life, but as I go through the exercise of applying that idea to my own life, I come to some important revelations that I'd like to share with you in the hopes that you might some value in my experience.If you like this episode and want to be the first to know when new ones are released?

This is from Earl Shaof's book which was originally a seminar he did called, how to become a millionaire. This book actually provides some great insight into a concept of "planting seeds" which I discuss in detail in this episode. Earl Shaof was Jim Rohn's mentor which was Tony Robbin's mentor. Earl had a major impact on Jim's life and I could see why from the power of this little thin book on financial success. It's interesting to study mentors of mentors because it's clear the philosophies helped them achieve great things. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-rich-life/support
Today's motivation is to focus on the overall process. Audio Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o3nJzpQe24&t=8 More about Jim: For more than 40 years, Jim Rohn honed his craft like a skilled artist—helping people the world over sculpt life strategies that expanded their imagination of what is possible. Those who had the privilege of hearing him speak can attest to the elegance and common sense of his material. It is no coincidence, then, that he is still widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time, and thought of by many as a national treasure. He authored countless books and audio and video programs, and helped motivate and shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers and hundreds of executives from America's top corporations. Quote of the Day: “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.” ― Jim Rohn Leave a review Support via Patreon Check out my Personal Finance/Investing Podcast --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/motiv8/support
“Procrastination is the thief of time.” - Charles Dickens Today's topic is one that we are all guilty of doing at one point in time in our lives. It is one habit that has prevented us from reaching our fullest potential. We are all aware of what procrastination is. We know it negatively affects us, but why do we do it? Why do we always put off doing what we must do? More importantly, how can we stop procrastinating? Tune in and find out the answers. Help me, help you reinvent yourself and become the best version of you because a great life does not happen by chance but by design. Highlights: ✅ We procrastinate to avoid pain or stress and because we lack direction. ✅ Overpower the urge to procrastinate: Be aware of what you are doing to yourself. Understand and believe how great you can be. Choose and decide who you want to become. Stop stalling about specific tasks and start acting, get in the game, as Mel Robbins mentioned in her 5 Second Rule book. Celebrate every time you stop and start until you can form better habits.

I get inspired by people like Jim Rohn and Tony Robbins on the importance of MINDSET. A lion mentality is everything because you spend so much time alone building your business as an entrepreneur. Your thoughts and inner dialogue shape your beliefs, and your beliefs then shape your actions. Your actions then impact the results in every area of your life – from career to relationships to health. Make sure your beliefs and inner game are not subconscious belief systems. Tune in to this episode and learn the 6 ways to lead like a lion.
Today we explore a great insight from Jim Rohn who reminds us that if we want tomorrow be different then we will need to start doing different things. It is so easy to drift along in life and before we know years have vanished. Today it's time to be reminded how the small actions we change can change the big details in our lives over time..

They say to “never meet your heroes”. I've met a few of mine, and that's actually pretty good advice. However, there are exceptions. I have one today. I first heard of Daniel Priestley via the most outlandish referral ever…Mike Winnett… whose “contrepreneural” documentary is a must-see for self-development addicts.[Mike Winnett said he went to a self-development event and the one speaker who wasn't complete crap was a guy named Daniel Priestley. Mike is brutal -so I had to check out Daniel!]I then found Daniel on the London Real podcast, and the rest is history folks. After diving into Daniel's thought processes on business, success, and personal development I have found they are so spot-on they will completely change the way you think about these topics, in a very positive way. If you're seeking wisdom and help in these areas he's one of the top minds in the world on these topics. His frameworks and advice have made a huge positive difference in my business and life in general. I put him on the same level as Jim Rohn, Dan Sullivan, and Darren Hardy. Daniel has written 4 books on these topics, runs several successful companies, and speaks around the globe to audiences, all with the purpose of truly helping people succeed. Dive in as we explore how to take your business and life to the next level.

Five years ago, I recorded Episode 1 with my Bluetooth headset and sent it off for approval on Apple Podcasts. My primary goal when I made the first episode was to create something that industrial water treaters could listen to while they drove from account to account. I wanted to make something that would help water treaters expand their general water treatment knowledge. What I didn't expect when I launched Episode 1 was that this podcast would create a community of people with similar passions. Today, we are not only celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Scaling UP! H2O podcast, but also the fifth birthday of the Scaling UP Nation, our global community of water treaters. It is an honor to celebrate this milestone with you. That's why in this episode, I am going to take a page from Atlanta's Morning News' Scott Slade, and share with you some of my favorite Top 5 lists in three categories: Community Wins, Books written by podcast Guests, and Inspiring Quotes. There were so many amazing guests and inspiring quotes so narrowing it down was a challenge. If you were making a list of the top 5 things about the podcast, what would they be? Please share your lists on social media with the hashtag #ScalingUpH2O . The last five years are dear and near to my heart, and I'm looking forward to spending the next few years with the Scaling UP Nation by “Scaling up our knowledge, so we don't scale up our systems.” Bottom line: Happy 5th anniversary, Scaling UP Nation! Your roadside friend, as you travel from client to client. -Trace Timestamps: Happy 5th Anniversary, Scaling Up Nation! [00:50] Thinking On Water With James [03:32] 5 Years Ago: The Beginning of the Scaling Up H2O Podcast [04:31] Top 5 Community Wins: Creating communities of passionate water treaters [09:04] Top 5 Books Written by Podcast Guests: Some of my favorite Books [18:29] Top 5 Inspiring Quotes: Quotes to pick you up and remind you that better is possible [37:42] Thinking On Water With James: In this week's episode, we're thinking about whether you can rely upon the tracer to determine product concentrations in your water systems, or are there other ways to confirm? Should you be regularly testing beyond just tracers like PTSA? Can anything impact the tracer to make it an unreliable indicator of product levels and performance? How might time, biocides, etc. impact tracer levels? Even if the tracer levels are correct, what else may be happening in the water system to impact other product ingredients? Take this week to think more about the tracers you use and learn more about them. Quotes: “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” - James Keller “If you can dream it, you can do it.” - Walt Disney “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” - Jim Rohn “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” - Henry David Thoreau “[When I first started the podcast], I created procedures. I will learn about a new topic as much as I can, and then I will write out procedures so I don't have to relearn it every time I go do it.” - Trace Blackmore “I learned that you don't need to be creative [when it comes to episode titles], you need to be simple, you need to find things that are repeatable, and people just understood what was going on.” - Trace Blackmore “Five years ago, Scaling UP H2O was born. [But] what was also born, was the Scaling UP Nation” - Trace Blackmore “I started the podcast because I wanted a community. I wanted people to come together in an industry that people don't normally come together in.” - Trace Blackmore “I am so amazed and humbled and honored that I get to be the tribe leader of the Scaling UP Nation.” - Trace Blackmore “Ask big, because you can get answered big.” - Trace Blackmore “I know what the intent is behind everything that I say, but the people that hear me say it, they have no idea what that intent is.” - Trace Blackmore “If you don't ask, you won't get.

Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning podcast, EPISODE #208, I'm Andrea Samadi, author and educator from Toronto, Canada, now in Arizona, and today's guest ties in perfectly to what we have been talking about on this podcast the past few months. Before I introduce him, I have to mention that he contacted me through LinkedIn and asked if I was looking for podcast guests. I always am and do have a running list of people I reach out to as our topic is specific, tied to how the most current brain research can help us to improve our productivity and results. Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/rZ5s3MBa91I On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ Who is Blaine Oelkers, and why did it take 3 seconds for Andrea to notice something unique about his work? ✔︎ The mistake that 99.9% of people who read the book Think and Grow Rich make. ✔︎ What were in the "missing pages" of Think and Grow Rich that Blaine Oelkers discovered? ✔︎ What is the "secret" that we should all know, while studying Think and Grow Rich. ✔︎ Strategies to become crystal-clear with whatever it is that we want to create. ✔︎ How neuroscience supports what Napoleon Hill teaches in Think and Grow Rich. ✔︎ Simple strategies to break and form new habits. ✔︎ The importance of "cleaning" your mind. If you recall, our last episode with Greg Link[i], who partnered and worked with the late Dr. Stephen Covey with the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People mentioned how many of the principles that they used for success over the years took some time before they were accepted in the corporate world, let alone the K-12 school market, so when I come across someone who's an expert, or even known as a Chief Results Officer, I want to know who they are, who and what and who they have studied, and how exactly they are getting these high levels of results that most of us want, but take such hard work to achieve. While researching our next guest, Blaine Oelkers[ii], a lifetime entrepreneur, a graduate of Purdue University and Stanford University's Entrepreneurship program, I learned that he's coached 1000's of people with what he calls their Personal Implementation Plans (PIPs) elevating his clients to a higher level of productivity and results that he calls You 2.0, when I saw exactly what I was looking for. It's rare for someone to teach these success principles, without having studied with one of the “greats” at least for a period of time, so I always look to see where their love of self-improvement began. I will be sure to ask Blaine this question, but it became clear to me that he has a sound knowledge of the most influential success books when I saw that he has taught the book we covered to launch our year with, Think and Grow Rich, and has some tips to help us to be more effective while studying this book, along with some lost passages! At this point in my research, I ‘m beyond curious how he knows this top secret information and wonder if it has to do with the fact that he shared the stage with American author and entrepreneur, Jim Rohn. I suppose we will all have to find this out in the interview. Let's meet Blaine Oelkers and see if we can kick our productivity up a notch and uncover where he learned these secrets for success from. Welcome Blaine. Thanks so much for reaching out to me. I'm not sure if you noticed that it took me about 3 minutes to write back to you that you were a perfect fit for the podcast! INTRO Q: I mention in the backstory that I'm always looking for people who can take our understanding of productivity and success to higher levels, and I have to open up with the question I was thinking the whole time I was researching you—where did your love for self-improvement begin, who did you study, and what do you think makes you stand out from others in this field—I saw it immediately. Q1: I opened the year with a 6-part series on Think and Grow Rich[iii] after studying this book for the past 3 years with Paul Martinelli. I have to say that when you teach something, you study it so differently as I could tell that didn't finish reading it until I had to explain it to others. I wonder what did you uncover that 99.9% of people miss every time they read TAGR? Here's my guesses—that people don't FINISH the book? Or they don't IMPLEMENT the ideas Napoleon Hill suggests? Or they don't read the book with effort and like Greg Link mentioned on my last episode-they don't really “ponder deeply” with what they are reading. Q2: What do you think “the secret” is that Hill says will stand out to you, and every chapter mentions it? Bob Proctor would never tell us what the secret was as he said we would stop looking for it. Q3: What are the lost passages of TAGR? How did you come across them? Q4: We've spoken often on this podcast about the importance of creating a crystal-clear vision of what you want. Why have you found this to be important, and how do you help others to remember this? WYTABA Q5: How has neuroscience proven that WYTABA works? RAS Q6: When you begin to connect the science to some of these success strategies, I know that belief is formed. What's been your experience of working with corporations/leaders over the past few decades. How have things changed with this understanding of neuroscience? Q7: We've also covered breaking/forming habits often on this podcast and I love how simple you make this. What should we all know if we want to form a new, healthy habit (like exercising more or cutting out unhealthy foods?) Q8: What are some simple ways that we can keep our mind free of negative thoughts? Q9: Any questions that you think I've missed that would be good to add CONNECT WITH BLAINE OELKERS Get healthy challenge https://www.facebook.com/groups/yesyoucanchallenge Rewire your brain group https://www.facebook.com/groups/rewiremybrain Watch Blaine's TED Talk http://blainetedx.com/ Listen to Blaine's Podcasts http://selfluence.com/podcasts/ CONNECT with BLAINE OELKERS LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/blaineoelkers/ Facebook https://www.facebook.com/chiefresultsofficer Blaine, I want to thank you for the hard work you are doing in this field.

Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. I don't know if that's true, but I do know that the people around us influence the way we think and therefore how we feel. This is even more true after loss as our emotions are more raw. In this week's episode, I'm sharing why this happens and what to do if you want to change the people around you. When you surround yourself with people who support and uplift and challenge you…things start to feel possible again. And you find out who you truly are.

In episode 098, I talked about being the Gifted Underachiever and the 5 pivotal elements to become the Empowered Achiever. While I was creating that episode, it occurred to me that there are many traumatic life experiences, big and small, when we don't have well-developed EF skills. We need to acknowledge them, in light of our underdeveloped EF skills, so that we can embark on our extraordinary healing journey, and manifest the pure potential contained within us. It's not enough for us to develop our EF skills and strategies. That's one piece of the puzzle. The other pieces have shown themselves to me over the past 5 years and are now essentials in the program. The 5 elements woven into the AIA-FS journey are: an EF Assessment, identifying and releasing limiting beliefs and outdated identities, acquiring pre-skills, developing EF skills and strategies, and maintaining your achievements for a lifetime, because everything in life requires maintenance. This unique, transformative 7-month journey flushes out traumatic experiences and facilitates the healing ones by training our core EF foundational skills within the safety of our closed communities. I studied with Jim Rohn back in the 1980s, and when he said, “for things to change, you have to change”, I didn't understand this concept to the depth I do today. He was talking about changing from the inside out, and that we can't remain as the current version of ourselves if we are to expand into the pure potential of our being. In this episode Dr B talks about: Our many traumas, big and small We are the meaning makers Reframing your meanings Common traumatic experiences Practice exercise for you Learn about 13 Signs Weak Executive Functioning Is Holding You Back Find out what you can do about your weak executive function skills even without a diagnosis Developing your Executive Function Skills and shifting your limiting beliefs is the fastest and most effective way to overcome ADHD limitations, find focus, gain confidence, and a newfound freedom in your life!

Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you hang out with the most.” There are four distinct categories: Champions, Constants, Connectors, and Challengers. You become a product of your environment. This is why is of utmost importance to surround yourself with positive influencers!

I have been perusing through one of my all-time favorite books, Jack Canfield's The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. As I read the book, I am always looking to apply success principles to relationships, which brings us to today's topic. How are you taking ownership in your relationship? Do you need to take more ownership? Let's talk about it. Take personal responsibility Jim Rohn talks a lot about our circumstances and the excuses we make. The bottom line is that we can't control the circumstances and seasons of life, but we can change ourselves. We have to take personal responsibility for the quality of life that we live. No one else is to blame. This applies immensely to our relationship. I'll say this, “If your relationship sucks, the problem is YOU.” You can't change the other person, but you can be the person you want to be. Everything in your life comes down to the person you are and the choices you make. There is no one else to blame. We can create, re-create, and uncreate We can change ourselves to achieve the success we want to have. Just as situations have been created by our choices, they can be re-created or uncreated to give different results. It just takes one person to make the changes to save a relationship, and it usually happens that the other partner will gladly join the effort. Commitment to change takes consistency, and when both partners are on board, profound changes can take place. Think about this: “What would your relationship look like if you gave it your ALL?” Give up your excuses and “stories” What happened in the past is in the past. We make our own conclusions about what happened and why. Those are our “stories,” and we spin them the way we do, mostly because of how we were raised. We convince ourselves about why someone did what they did, or what their underlying motive was, or why they can't be trusted. We have the power to change the situation to produce the result we want by letting go of all the excuses and changing the stories we tell ourselves. Would you rather be right or happy? How could you have communicated more clearly and been more deliberate? YOU have the power to change your relationship! ***Leave me your feedback. Let me know how you are taking personal responsibility, letting go of excuses, and changing the story of your relationship. Your relationship fitness matters! You are not just raising children, but someone's future spouse and someone's future parent. Go out there and be loving, kind, patient, and generous!

Intro 00:28 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we will teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:40 Aaron Walker has founded more than a dozen companies in the past 42 years. If you've been paying attention, he's been featured in over 2,000 podcast interviews, and he's also the founder of Iron Sharpens Iron, a mastermind for success-minded men and women who want to level up in all areas of life. ISI has grown to over 20 mastermind groups since 2013. Aaron, welcome to the show. Aaron Walker 01:02 Hi, Sam. Thanks for having me on, buddy. I really appreciate it. Sam Wilson 01:06 Hey, man, the pleasure is mine. It's also great to have a fellow Tennesseean in here on the show. I don't get to do that very often. So you're based out of Nashville, Tennessee. So you're right up the road from us here in Memphis. Aaron, there's three questions I asked every guest who comes on the show. In 90 seconds or less, can you tell us where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? Aaron Walker 01:25 Yeah, thank you very much, Sam. Started Nashville, Tennessee. 61 years, I'm Native, you know, three generations deep. I opened a pawn shop when I was 18 years old, add a couple of partners had a successful exit when I was 27 sold out to a fortune 500. Since then, I've built 13 additional businesses between then and now had the privilege of being in a mastermind group with Dave Ramsey and Dan Miller, and some of those guys here locally for over a dozen years. Today, coach, I encourage, help other people achieve their goals and dreams in Iron Sharpens Iron mastermind. And I'm probably having the absolute time of my life. My wife said I've retired more than the law allows. And so I just decided to go back into helping educate, train and teach other people, because I'm excited about the transformation that they get to experience as well. Sam Wilson 02:18 It sounds like that's more of a motivation for you. I mean, at this point, like you said, you've retired more times than the law allows. I mean, you're not in it for the money at this point. There's just got to be a reward factor internally. Aaron Walker 02:31 You know, I never say that. It's not some of the money. Everybody likes to make money. We like to give money away. We like to do nice things for our family. Well, I hate it when people say, well, money is not an issue. And I'm like, we'll do it for free, then right? ever do it for free. And I'm like, I never say that. But it's not the sole motivation. The sole motivation for me is helping people achieve their goals and dreams. And we have hundreds of people in our organization. Now we're in seven different countries. And we're helping transform many, many lives to really accomplish the things that they were intended to. So yeah, that's what gets me up each and every day and gets me out of bed. Sam Wilson 03:07 That's fantastic. One of the things that you're known for is transforming lives intentionally. What does that mean? And can you break down, I guess some of when you take a look at a person or you take a look at someone who's talking to you, they say, Hey, I want to transform my life. What does that mean to be intentional? How do they do it? Aaron Walker 03:23 Yeah, I've got to give you the reason why. So 21 years ago, I was 40 years old. It was August 1, 2001. I was headed to the office, things were amazing, had a beautiful home, had a place on the beach, all the fancy cars, I work three days a week, my partner work the other three days, I'm trying to paint a picture for you to let you know that I was in really an ideal position, until a guy named Enrique walked out in front of me and I ran over and killed a pedestrian on my way to the office. And my life, literally, Sam come to a screeching halt. And I had to do a lot of evaluation over the next five years. And what I learned through that process was is that I'd had a great amount of success financially, but I had no significance in my life whatsoever. Like nobody cared that we had nice things but my family, and I was thinking I have not made an impact in the lives of other people. And so I came home one day with a pocket full of money to a house full of strangers. And I woke up and said, “Listen, this is not the legacy that I want to leave.” The legacy I want to leave is that Sam Wilson's life is better as a result of having known me, I'm going to encourage that guy, I'm going to help that guy because the only thing that people remember is how your life impacted them. They don't remember the tangible assets that you had. They don't care that you're wealthy or not. The only thing that they're interested in is how your life impacts them. So I've become very proactive and impacting the lives of other people. I'm very intentional about being a giver and not a taker. And you know, the irony of that, Sam is that the more I do for people, the natural reciprocity as they want to do for you, they want to connect you, they want to help you, they want to be around you. And I want to be the guy that lights up the room. I don't want to be the guy that sucks the energy out of the room. I don't want to be the guy. It's like, oh, he's only calling me because he needs something like this guy's calling me to encourage me. And so as a result of that you build this amazing community around you, of givers. And when you do that, then you're qualified to live the life that you were created to do. Sam Wilson 05:26 That's absolutely fantastic. I can't imagine the soul searching that would happen after an event like that, like that just gut-wrenching. Just hearing it. Man, that's really incredible. What were some steps that you took from that point forward? You know, you came home, you said, “Hey, I got a pocket full of money and a house full of strangers.” What did you do? Aaron Walker 05:42 Yeah, you know, I think there's benefit in working to make money. As I said earlier in the interview, you know, I like to make money and I want to make more money, and I want to be able to make an impact, and I want to help and I want to take nice trips with my family and give money to my grandkids, I want to do all those things. And so I don't want to minimize that and say, now we got to go out there and be a pauper and give it all away. That's not what I'm saying at all. But what I am saying is, is that we need to be very intentional about living our life proactively and giving away. And I wrote a book called “View From The Top.” And in the book, it talks about measures of having great success, but don't forget the significance. And the significance piece is really doing things for others. And that can be in your immediate family, your extended family, your peers or colleagues, people that you do business with. The thing is, is to do it intentionally, really allocate a portion of your time to do things for other people. I'm coaching a couple of guys right now that are very successful in the financial space. And I've presented this concept to them. And they say, why don't you just pay for whatever it is, and let them go do it. And as I said, there's a transformational experience that happens within yourself, when you're actively engaged in doing random acts of kindness for others, there's something that happens in us, our children are able to witness us physically going out doing things for people, I do something here in Nashville, every single Black Friday. And it's an activity that I do with my five grandchildren, we call it gratitude day to where we go out and we spend the entire day doing random acts of kindness for strangers. We'll go to nursing homes. We'll go to the Children's Hospital. We'll go to stores and hand out cards with money and it will pay off people's layaways will buy meals for the entire restaurant. Now some of you're like yeah, big guy, if I had your money, I would do that too. But the thing is, is that you can do it on a small scale, you don't have to do it on a grandioso scale, you can go out and do this. And my grandchildren will all line up and tell you we've got them from age six to 20 years old. And they'll say it's the funnest day of the year for them. They'll say that doing these random acts of kindness really gives them a sense of gratitude and purpose and meaning in their life. And we miss opportunity, Sam each and every day with people that were around, because we're always in it for ourselves, I can make that connection that's going to make me more money. If I can make that connection, I'll feel a sense of power. If I can make that connection, it will do X for me. But if you change your mindset to think I wonder how I can connect Billy and Bobby or Susie and Tommy? How can I connect them so their life will be better than, here's what happens invariably, and I do this all day long every day. They then say big A, you need to meet Sam Wilson, you need to meet this person. And I'm like, I can't even get back to all the people that I'm getting connected to now, because I'm proactively helping other people say it's a mindset shift. And we have this scarcity mentality. If we don't go out and just get for ourselves, we may lose out. But that's not true. You need to have an abundance mindset, and when you adopt that mindset, greater things happen. Sam Wilson 08:57 Yeah, that's absolutely fantastic. I mean, you've hit on so many things there, the gratitude, it's so easy comes through your phone, it comes through your email, it comes through all this stuff, that'll just mean by 8 am. You can be the most ungrateful sour person from just reading the bombardment of stuff coming at you, and not just being you know, and then within that, then that makes you also more meat-focused and like, oh my gosh, I got to put up my walls because the world's gonna, you know, the world hates me, it's gonna kill me. So that's a complete transformational shift. Talk to us about you know, one of the things that you do inside of ISI is surrounding yourself with trusted advisors. What was the birth of that? What was the point of it? What's the birth of it? And why do you guys do what you do now? Aaron Walker 09:35 You know, a couple of decades ago, when Dave Ramsey started his radio show, he was giving a talk at the Chamber of Commerce. This is in the early 90s. And I went and heard that talk and introduced myself to him. He offered me free advertising to train just for a week period. And I did and it made such a difference in our business here locally in Nashville, that I became his second sponsor to show for 21 years, well out of that became a very close friendship at which he invited me to be in his mastermind. And I didn't want to do it, Sam, just to be honest, because I knew Dave was going to be all up in my business and he was going to be ranting at me. But truth of the matter is it changed my life. And the reason it did, they provided a safe environment, that I could let the veil down the facade if you will. And I was able to be vulnerable and transparent among a few trusted advisors, that I could be honest, that I could say, “Hey, I don't have it all figured out, I do have some superpowers. There's some kryptonite along the way but I've got some blind spots.” And they were quick to point out those blind spots because that's what normally trips us up. Well, if you're not surrounding yourself and subjecting yourself to the scrutiny of other trusted advisors in a small environment, who's going to tell you that this is not going to work? Who's going to encourage you? Who you're going to share these triumphs with? And it just allows you to be able to share, get it by in a small setting with these trusted advisors. So when I retired 11 years ago, Dan Miller and Dave Ramsey, encouraged me to coach and teach it, which I started doing, started doing podcast interviews, and I quickly filled up the groups and I couldn't coach them individually. And so it birthed Iron Sharpens Iron mastermind, which we now you know, I've had hundreds and hundreds of members over the years. But it positions you to be in an environment to where you can excel because isolation is the enemy to excellence. And if you really want to excel in your life, you've got to surround yourself in community that you can get this type of encouragement and it buys resources. I call it ARP, A-R-P, you've got access, you've got accountability, you get resources, and the most important part is a different perspective. And you've got to have community in order to do that. Sam Wilson 11:54 Yeah, absolutely, and part of community I think, is one of the things that I found valuable is the opportunity to be vulnerable. How do you foster that? Aaron Walker 12:01 Yeah, it takes time. And it's difficult. And a lot of people don't want to do it initially, because they don't want you to know that they don't have it all together. Sam, you and I've never met in person. But the truth is, you and I both were knuckleheads, right, there's some things we don't have together. Sam Wilson 12:16 We're knuckleheads. Aaron Walker 12:18 Still are, right, I'm just saying there's some area of your life that you have a challenge with right now. It could be relational, it could be financial, it could be physical, I don't know what it is. But I can promise you, there's some area of your life you don't have all together, I don't either. And if we want to get better, we've got to get around people that can help us with that. So being vulnerable in a small group. Now, don't go out here to the world and air all your dirty laundry, I'm not suggesting that at all. But once you get into a group, a small group, maybe eight to 12 people, and you get to know them and they prove themselves to be trustworthy, and they're not going to go out and share the private things in your life, it just allows you to kind of unload, it allows you to sit there in a room and go, “Hey, I've got cash flow problems right now, or I'm really struggling with my spouse, or I've got a wayward child, or I've got this situation with my family or my extended family, and I really don't know how to deal with it.” Well, you're going to get the counsel of the multitude, these trusted advisors. And when there's a general consensus of that group, more than likely, that's the avenue that you should take. See, no matter how much we want to see it a different way, it's virtually impossible. Because you have one life experience, you have one set of filters, and that is the way you perceive any situation that you're currently in. But man, when you have a different perspective, there's new insights, it opens up a whole host of new opportunities you like you don't know what you don't know, right? And this group allows you to look at things differently. Sam Wilson 13:49 That's really interesting. What are some things that you guys do? I mean, because I always say that vulnerability begets vulnerability, right? Like, it's no one's vulnerable to no one's going to be vulnerable. But how do you foster that? And an ever-expanding group setting? Like, I mean, it's almost that it's creating a culture in its own right. Aaron Walker 14:07 It is and you never go further than the leader. And I'm very vulnerable. I'm very transparent. I teach our facilitators that run a lot of the groups to be vulnerable and transparent. Because what it does Sam is it gives you permission to be vulnerable once I'm vulnerable. And you'll only go as far as I'll go. And so for me, I've just created an environment within Iron Sharpens Iron mastermind, where vulnerability is the place that strength begins, and a lot of people don't believe that until they've experienced it. Because we all have areas of our life that we need encouragement, we need help, we need to be edified. And until we know that that's a problematic area, we can't help you. So there's so many places in our lives today that maybe were excelling financially, but relationally, we're really struggling we have one of our guys that do considerable amount of revenue weekly in his business, but his family is destroyed, is that way because he spends the vast majority of his time at work, he's built no boundaries, right. And so what we've encouraged him to do is to build the boundaries and say, work within this time frame, go home, don't cheat your family, because that's the first place that most people cheat. And the reason that they do that is because they feel like they can get forgiveness. They feel like that they'll understand. But the truth is, is that we can injure our family beyond repair if we're not careful. So what happens is you do like I did, you come home with a pocket full of money to a house full of strangers, and you've got somebody else taking your son to baseball practice. And your wife is taking the little girl to ballet, practice alone, that he's never there. Son, I'll come out and play baseball with you. Let me send one more email, it quickly gets dark, you're unable to do that with your son, and then you can't recover that time. And I want to encourage the people that are out there, if you're going to cheat, cheat the office, don't cheat your family because you only get one go through with the family, you don't get a redo. It's like once you miss that opportunity to throw baseball with your little boy or he wants to play outside or your little girl at recital practice, you never show up to their baseball games, you're always late. You're always making a big show in front of your colleagues and peers, but you're doing it at the expense of your family, and you wonder why that your family falls apart in later years. And so we really help people identify the boundaries that they can work with the, and still be very successful be significant in your family locks as well. Sam Wilson 16:31 Yes, man, that's so true. I mean, just hearing you give the analogies makes me just go my gosh, like it's so seductive too. I mean, it's so seductive just to I mean, keep hammering away, we're building this, we're doing this. And in the end, it's like, wait, what have I built like nothing, my legacy is not there isn't one. And it's heartbreaking to hear that, you know, at times that those days and those hours have passed, which kind of takes me to my next, you know, topic here, I'd love to hear your thoughts on his time. I mean, one of the things that, you know, we're always preaching and you know, cash flowing real estate is that you want time and money freedom, the biggest of those, I think the most valuable those is time with your family time with you know, your loved ones. What would you say some of the keys are to developing time freedom? Aaron Walker 17:12 The biggest thing is, first of all, is we've got to decide what we want in life, and I asked this question regularly to people. If geographically or financially, there were no limitations, what would you do with your life tomorrow? And for the most part, people can't answer that question. They're living their life reactively not proactively. And I decided years ago that I'm going to be very proactive. This is not a trial run. This is our life right now. What you're going through this very day is your life. And so I want you to be very proactive in making those determinations in how you want to live your life. Sit down and really think through that I've even got a document, happy to give it away to your audience called What Do I Want. And it's just very thought-provoking questions that you have to answer in order to live your life proactively, because you're the one making the decision, you can choose what you want to do and what you don't want to do. So build a lie first and foremost, to be very proactive. The second thing is that we say it every single day, all my family's most important, yet, we're giving lip service to that because your actions are speaking loudly that your occupation is more important than your family. So say we do what is important, it doesn't matter to me what you say, it's your actions that are speaking loudly. So if your family is most important, you're going to put the big rocks in first, you're going to build your schedule to where your family is, first and foremost, if that is what you're saying. And you're going to work your schedule around it. Now, I've been self-employed now for 43 years, never worked for anybody since I was 18 years old. And I said that the most important thing to me personally was my calendar. And I wanted to dictate if I went to work today, or if I didn't go to work today. That was my choice. I wanted to make that determination. And I got tangled up in my early years in my 20s. It was like, “Man, I had one store and I paid it off successfully, and I was able to do that.” I said, but if I just have one more store, then I'll have twice as much money then I can spend more time and I got caught up in this trap of, Sam, it was like I kept moving the bar, and I kept moving the bar. And then I looked up one day and I'm like, “Man, I'm in a bad spot because I keep moving this bar. And if I'm not careful, I'm going to lose my family.” And so you've got to predetermine what it is that you want so that you don't get caught in that trap. In the wreck in 2001 is what helped me really unpack my life and say, “No, this is really the life that I want because life is so fragile.” Like our life can be taken tomorrow, and we then wouldn't have the opportunity to makeup and I don't want to have regrets. I want to be able to lay there and go. Man, I gave it all I had. I had my priority He's in the right place in so I've allocated my time appropriately. Sam Wilson 20:03 Yeah. In regret, what's that phrase or that statement where they say something like failure weighs ounces? Regret weighs tons. Yeah, I'm probably butchering it up. I can't remember who, Jim Rohn or somebody that to that effect said that I can't remember who it was. But it's yeah, not having regrets when it at the end, if you ever read the book, The Five Regrets of the Dying? Aaron Walker 20:23 Have not seen that. Sam Wilson 20:24 It's a fantastic book. So anyway, just throw that out there. You know, if you're listening to this show, and kind of in theme with what you're talking about here, Aaron, it's called the Five Regrets of the Dying and it's a, Bronnie Ware I think was her name. And she just goes through and she was a hospice caretaker for people, you know, wealthy families with people who are dying. And so she spent, I don't know, 5, 10 years taking care of people and just finally highlighted the five things that they said at the end, and kind of collapsed or condensed everything. Everybody said that, like, here's the top five things. I mean, I'm not cried so much reading a book. I was like, Oh, my gosh, like, what a heart-wrenching story because regret, man, it's just like, Oh, I wish I could have. And you just hear those stories. You know, man, like, don't be that person, right? Aaron Walker 21:02 No, I've not read the book yet, but I can promise you that every person that was dying, never said I wished I'd spent more time at the office. I wish I'd spent more time with family. Sam Wilson 21:11 Yeah, that's exactly right. Yeah, then nobody ever said I wish…. Aaron Walker 21:14 And so, but the irony of that is, is the vast majority of our time each and every day is not quality time with our family. The irony is it's always that because there's this elusiveness within the grasp or the distance of financial prosperity and gain, let me be the first to tell your audience if they've not heard it. Money is not going to scratch the itch like you think it's going to get nice. And I love to have nice things. And I don't want to give up nice things. I drive new cars, I have a nice house, I take nice vacations. I'm not saying that. This is about the third time I've said that in this interview. But I promise you that it's not my god, it is not my sole focus. Even prior, you know, to the wreck, I understood that getting those additional stores, making more money, other companies say money only really makes a difference until you make about $70,000. Once you pass that, it's in almost insignificant the amount of happiness that you feel like it's going to give you after your basic needs are met because you get tired or have things faster, you have more resources, and you get bored quicker. And I'm just telling you that you may be leaning your ladder against the wrong wall in the things that you're trying to accomplish, and one of my biggest fears in life is being successful at the wrong thing. And I want your audience to really think through today what is important to me, and how can I allocate my time to accomplish that? Sam Wilson 22:41 That's fantastic. One of the things I think Dan Sullivan's who not how is that the right book? Yes. And you kind of you know, talk about that a little bit as well is in freeing up that time and who not how, what are some things practically, you know, so we've kind of talked about the mindset way of addressing this and putting our values in the right place. But what are some things practically that you've done in order to free up time in order to, you know, honor your values? Aaron Walker 23:06 You know, it's funny that you mentioned that book, I took our entire mastermind group six months ago through Dan's book, Who Not How, and if you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. It's a book that teaches you that you should do only what you can do. Now, let me say this too because I remember being a small business owner solopreneur. Like you don't have the freedom and the ability and the resources to do that today. I get that, right. I can't stand it when people say, oh, yeah, you got us like, Well, now, like, it's just me right now. But you can aspire to do that. You can start out slowly. And when I started this company, eight years ago, it was me. And then we hired a team member. And then we went from there. And now we have a small team of about 10 people that really help us do what we do. I just got off of a two-month sabbatical. I've never taken a sabbatical in my entire career. Friends of mine that live here in Nashville do that. And they recommend it. And I thought initially, well, that's just what rich people do. And they take an extended vacation. But the truth is, is that it was transformative in my personal life because it really made me sit back and take notice of the things that I had the most value. It was where I'm operating in my zone of genius, not in my zone of competence. And I said these things that I've been doing, take up an inordinate amount of my time and I can teach those principles to others, which I've done. And I've set aside the things that are redundant or the things that can be taught or the things that other people can learn. And I only do the things that bring the most value to our company. And so the Who Not How is invaluable because as you grow and you build more resources, you pour it back into the company. Now I can't speak firsthand to this because I did it. When Robin and I started our first company when I was 18 years old. I got married two weeks out of high school. So I said, we may never get this opportunity again. So we've got to really, really focus in, delay gratification, we're going to pour the money back into the company. So for nine years, Robin and I lived on $18,000 a year, we poured all the money back into the company, we bought other stores, we reduce debt, we hired team members. And then I had built something that a Fortune 500 wanted to buy when I was 27 years old. So it took us nine years to build that company. But if I had spent all the money and increased my living bought a bigger house, more cars, fancier vacations, I would have never amassed anything that somebody else would have wanted to buy. And so I want to encourage your listeners today to put the money back into your company, you are the best investment you could possibly make. And so along the way, delegate, eliminate, or automate. And so for me the delegation part the Who Not How's very important. Only do what you can do. Sam Wilson 25:59 Yep. I love that. Aaron, thank you for taking the time to come on today's show. It's been absolutely insightful. Love everything you've shared with us.

And why did you choose it? Aaron Walker 26:16 Yeah, it's Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron as one man sharpens another.” I'm Christian by faith, and so I wanted to be able to get around people to really encourage them to go to the next level.

“You become like the five people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully.” I love this quote by Jim Rohn and when I am really honest with myself, I can see that it is definitely true. And Oprah said it well when she instructed "surround yourself with those who only lift you higher.” You do get to choose who and what you surround yourself with and it does have a huge impact on the results you get in life. I saw this first hand with the 11 clients who joined me at the Fancy Food Show. They were lifting each other up and generating an intoxicating energy!I also see it inside Food Business Success with our coaching calls.

Welcome to another episode of the Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today with me we have one of our favorite recurring guests: Whitney Elkins-Hutten and she's gonna be talking to us today about what do you need to be a badass rockstar, female investor? Let's get into it. Whitney, what's going on? Thanks for coming back yet again for another episode of record with me really appreciate you. Whitney: Yeah, thanks so much for having me on. I'm so excited. Michael: Oh my god, this is… I'm more excited. I'm the most excited. So today, we're gonna be talking about your thoughts, advice, recommendations on how to become a badass rockstar, female investor, because you've done it. So curious to get your thoughts from a high level, you know, what is it that people are getting wrong with their mindset? Or is it something physical that they're doing? Whitney: Well, yeah, so I don't know if it's something that somebody does wrong, right. I think there's really three key components to like being a successful investor period, but, and we can kind of like dive into like, you know, those nuances between females and males and like what females can do to like, kind of elevate themselves. But really, it boils down to three things: mindset, skill sets, and network. So I mean, if you've read any of the works, you know, thinking grow rich or anything by Kiyosaki, like it boils down to those three things. But just knowing those three words is not enough, like you have to understand how to act on them. Michael: Here, I was thinking, man, I know the three words, I got the secret recipe now, I'm good. Whitney: All right. Well, I wish it were that simple, right? You know, that's half the battle like, right, I know that right there. But um, you know, on the mindset piece, um, you know, that that's like the foundation like we're building a pyramid for like, your entire investing business to live off of, like, you have to have a good foundation. And that foundation is like your operating system, like what's in between these two years of yours. And unfortunately, like, or, I mean, we've evolved our society over the years, but this operating system still is like, you know, it's, it's, it's still like in the mastodon air, like, it hasn't like really caught up. Evolution is slow but you know, if you believe in evolution, but yeah, it's a little slow. So we have to, like really work on this on a daily basis and condition it daily and it's so hard in today's environment to do that. Michael: So, yeah, what are some what are some tips or tricks or steps that you've taken, or you've seen others take to be successful to change their mindset? Whitney: Well, I can speak for me personally and these are questions that like, I mean, I've had so many mentors and coaches in my life and these are like questions they've given me, too, that I have to continue to ask myself on a regular basis, sometimes daily, like if I'm going through a tough time. But, you know, if you're getting into real estate, you have to know why you want it. Like why do you want to invest in real estate because real estate is a tool, right? There are some people that love real estate, and you know, you and I are chatting before the show, like, there's your strengths and then there's your gifts, right? For a lot of people, they they have a strength that a translatable skill they're bringing in it thinks that they might be good at investing in real estate, but end of the day, they don't want to own houses, they want the result that the houses give them, right? So know what you want, like, do you want time freedom? Do you want cash flow? Do you need a net worth bill do but I mean, even getting down to that, that freedom of choice, freedom of time, freedom to travel? Like, what is that freedom that you want? And then more importantly, why you want it? And being able to answer those questions, you know, will reinforce what you're doing. It's like your North Star, like nothing will be able to derail you. Because no matter where you are in your investing plan, if you're just like, I know, I want to have control of my time and this is why because I want to spend it with my family, I want to spend it traveling. Like that's your north star and it can be like a filter for guiding all your decisions. Michael: I love that. Whitney: So that's like, yeah, it's like that's like, I mean, it really under it really boils down to getting the right questions in the right sequence, and then pass that deciding it's yours. Okay, just make giving yourself permission. I know for me as a female, like the way I was raised, um, um, you know, borderline millennial Gen Z, right? Like, my mom was very much, you know, pro feminist and stuff like that. You know, I have no problem with that, or very little problem with that, like, I mean, that's just the infighting meant that I was raised in but I'm not. That's not how everybody, everybody came on, right. But you have to decide it's yours. Like, I'm going to go after that, and I deserve it. And there are going to be things that knock you down. Yeah, that happened. throw you off course. I was just speaking to one of my coaching clients earlier today. And, you know, she's going through divorce now. She's just like when I thought it was getting all this momentum. And I'm like, do you still believe in what you're doing? Yeah. Like, is it yours? Yes. I'm like, okay, great. Like, now let's focus what we can control. And, you know, but those types of things, you know, we feel we're very empathic, but yeah, those type of things get kind of, like derail you a little bit. But really, like just having this, you know, two key decision or two questions and a key decision, like, written down can really help you move forward in that mindset piece. Michael: I love that and Whitney, I'm curious if we just take a step back for a second for making, you know, knowing your why, and kind of making that decision? How important is it and how granular do you recommend people get, because at the restart Academy, we talked about smart goals and use that acronym for goal setting. But I know so many people are like, oh, I want to invest in real estate because I don't want to work anymore, like, is that enough? Or like, how do they get? Whitney: I mean, it's a good story. Tony Robbins has this like great exercise like we've ever done unleash the Power Within or any of his bracer series, like, it's the first time you do it, it might actually feel very unsettling and awkward. Like, it's called, like, the seven reasons and so you you name like, why do you want to invest in real estate, right? Because I don't want to work anymore. Why do you want that? Well, because I want to travel great. Why do you want that? Well, I want to see the world and like, you start getting people's puzzles looks on their face, they're like, see me… And you're like, but that's that gets down to the core essence. Because, as I explained it to, you know, people like Coach is that first level knee jerk, why is what you're running from? Michael: Hmm… Whitney: When you ask seven layers deep, you finally figure out you might not be able to articulate the first two or three or four or 5-10 times that you sit down to do that exercise. It may take you months, or even a year or two, you're then figuring out what you're running towards and what is going to get you more motivated, okay, you know that day to day pain, it might be like, understanding what you're running from, like I want to get I don't want to work for you know the company anymore. I don't want to work for my boss, I want to have my time back, blah, blah, blah, right? But what you're running towards is what's going to be your that Northstar guiding post for you long term, it's what is gonna have you help you build the right real estate business for you, right, because there's so many gets down to that last one, that seventh why and they like, I want my time freedom and they come to me and they're like, teach me how to flip. I'm like, thinking hold on… Michael: We'll need a little bit of alignment. Whitney: Yeah, well, that was like, now, you know, we can use flipping as a means to an end to build the real business they want. But you know, we have to understand, you know, you know, where different modalities fits into different phases of the business, but got a little off course in the wild, but that's why you want to make sure that you sit down and kind of go through the exercise. It's, it's hysterical. I mean, I went through the same experience, like, the first time you do it, you're like, why am I asking this question seven times, like I got it the first time… Michael: I study for the test… Whitney: It is not the same question. Because now you you're figuring out why you want the next thing that you named. Michael: Hmm. That is very interesting, I like that, I like that a lot and so who do you who should be having these conversations? Who should be asking these questions of the potential and would be investors? Is it spouses, partners, friends, colleagues? I mean, who should who's a good person to have these conversations with? Whitney: I mean, you know, you can some people are like introverts they want to do it with by themselves. If you have a good partner or a good friend that can help lead you through that exercise and interrogate reality with you… you know, kind of like, open and honest way, then fantastic. I think the more the merrier. My husband and I we sit down and we do a couple schools setting retreat every year and you know, normally we've like gone back answer the questions that what of what we want for the year ourselves and then come back together and we kind of formulate a plan. This year, we sat down in the same room and did everything live with each other and I'm like, you know, like peeking on his paper. I'm like, well, yeah, like, what was that like? That but I get to learn so much more about you know, who he is and, you know, we're just gonna there are things that I learned about when we've been married, I mean, she's gonna kill me like, you know, we've been married for a really long time and he's just like, you know, we know everything about each other. I'm like, No, you don't. We don't at all. It was that's so much fun. But you know, really like, if you're open to like having helped, you know, somebody asked these questions with you, so you can help deepen your own like, it frees you up from being the the questioner and also the answer, answer or if you can bring somebody in in that process. You can just take on one role. Michael: Yeah, I dig it, I dig it. Okay, so that was mindset and then you mentioned what was stuck to… Whitney: Yeah… So that you know for you to do anything in life you have to have the right mindset you know, the the fact that you know what you want why you want it and that you are going to go after you have given yourself permission to go after it right, that's mindset. Once you once you understand that you might be standing there going, the person on the street going, Grant, okay, I want real estate, I want financial freedom. Where do we go from here, right. Now you're down to the skill sets, okay? Like the kind of get into the how do we get things done? Now, here's the trick, I'm going to give you you know, people a couple of different ways to look at it first, we can look at what's what you have and what you don't. Okay, so, if you come from business, you've probably heard a SWOT analysis. So where you're, you're listing out your strengths, your weaknesses, your opportunities to your investment, like what can you bring that is really cool that you can really utilize in your threats, like, you know, um, you know, if you have a family like, I've got a nine year old at a time that can like bomb me anytime in any podcast, and I'm doing like the doors latch, right… Handle that threats what… Michael: Threat destabilized… Whitney: …disarmed, those are, you know, really sitting down on all seriousness, the strengths and the weaknesses, you know, focusing there first, and I don't like thinking of weaknesses, but those again, you know, that's what the acronym is, but those are areas that your blind spots, you know, what are what don't you have that, you know, that you need in order to succeed? Okay, taking, taking, like 510 15 minutes, you know, to look at your strengths and weaknesses and revisit those on a regular basis because as you start, you don't know what you don't know. And as you start digging into, like, whatever path or real estate you're going to go down, you will uncover things like, oh, I need to have a property manager and I don't know how to interview great like, that's, you know, that needs to over here as an opportunity or like, you know, weakness that I need to fill in. You were talking about strengths. I think there's a confusion that people have, right. Between strengths and gifts. Yeah, in strengths are things that we are good at, we have been trained, we have learned over time we have mastered them, you know, it can be through schooling, training, on the job training and stuff like that, it doesn't actually mean that it's a gift and then it's our net that it lights us up on the inside. Case in point: I'm an epidemiologist by training, I love thinking through critical things. You handed me like a regression analysis and like on software and spreadsheets and stuff, like like that, I can do it. I'm really fast at it, I'm really good at it, do I love it? No, it's a strength, but like, if you if I doubled down on that strength and just solely honed in on that, that being a core part of my business, I would struggle, right because it's not a gift of mine. Like I would eventually hit a wall and go I don't love doing this at all I need to reengineer my business. So even getting more granular so once you have your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats, you know, written down on that strengths, separate them out of like things that you've been trained that that you're just good at but then also what do you love? What, what would you do, if you never got paid? Like for me like I love talking, I love educating like, you know, I could I get up I'll do it in the morning. I go to bed doing it at night. My husband is like, can you please just get off the phone? Like I'm on it… and like for women, you know, we have some you know, but there's some big differences between men and women like women we naturally come you know, probably more culture with like communication report building organizational skills, and attention to detail and not so much like being able to focus on detail, but also like handle like, you know, more and I hate the word multitask, but like attention to detail and multiple areas all at the same time, right. Yeah, that's, you know, we were the gatherer part of the chain. You know, we had to pay attention to the kids running around, is there a saber toothed tiger in the area? Where would I get those last berries, that didn't make me sick? Right like we had to pay that into all those details and that is part of our physiology, it's part of this operating system up here in our head. Michael: It's so funny, you mentioned that yeah, the other day, we had some contractors at our house and I was outside chatting with them, we got along just fine and then I was gone for 10 minutes and my wife, Claire was outside, and they're like, best friends in 10 minutes and she's like, oh, yeah, we just get along, we're buddy, buddy, like, how do you do that? How do you build rapport people so quickly? So I love that you mentioned it. I'm like, yeah, first, first, it's really happening in my household… Whitney: Yeah, I mean, it's in every, like I said, it's not like, it's not a blanket statement. But identifying what those strengths are and, you know, I think for women, when we're getting into like a very male dominated industry, I think there's an expectation that we have to go toe to toe with them, you know, with males, I'll give you an example: I was on a, speaking on a panel last month at a conference and two incredible male investors with me, I mean, couldn't be, you know, on the stage with more nice, nicer people and I was like, a little nervous, because I was like, these guys are gonna go over deal specifics and numbers, and they're gonna hammer home their deals and returns and I was just like, I'm like, I'm gonna take a different approach. And so whenever I got asked my questions on a panel, I turned back to the audience, and I, like engaged in a conversation with the audience and I had like them laughing and rolling over each other. Because I was in, you know, it was just a different way of connecting, right, like, so um, you know, in the in, you know, not what, there's not a one size fits all solution. But you know, some people would have resonated with that a little bit better, so… Michael: Absolutely. Oh, how cool. That's great. Whitney: And, and then, you know, so when we understand what the strengths are, we've got the strings, we've got the guests. Also, we have to switch back to that that awkward the weakness column, and I hate to say I hate the word weakness, I always want to call it opportunities, because it just feels better. Like, this is an area it's kind of my blind side is what area for me to get better. But when we're talking about scaling a business, really, do you just need to be aware of the blind spot and do you have to fix it? Or do you need to find out who to help you, right? So if you don't if you ever read the book, who not how? Michael: Yes, love it! Whitney: …and the title says it all, who not how... Done, you don't have to read the book. Michael: Yeah, we just saved you two hours' worth of reading... Whitney: Right, but you know, really, you know, how can, you know, you really tap into understand what your blind spots are, and what how they might be limiting for you. If we all can do better in like, you know, fixing our blind spots, when you're building a business, you may not have that luxury or time, go find somebody that that you can bring in that has a complementary skill set. Me, I found out really fast when I got my first like actual rental, like when we placed tenants in our properties. I was like, okay, I love talking to the, to the tenant, I could build a report, I could get them in, I have got sales skills, not a problem. But when it came to day to day communication with them, I wanted to have nothing to do with it, like I was just like, yeah…, I checked the box, right. Um, but it takes a very special person to do that right to, you know, to manage the tenant and obviously, I mean, I need a property manager, that's my who, like, take me out of this role. Like, I remember standing in the Children's Museum in Wisconsin, I hadn't seen my friends for two years, our kids are playing, and my husband's on the phone talking to our tenant for an hour and a half and this the whole experience of our kids playing because we didn't have a property manager. So that's what I mean by who, right, it was a blind spot for us, we thought we could power through it, but at the end of the day, um, you know, the tenant would have been better served with property management and so we would have we two totally needed to who, in our business… Michael: When I'm gonna get real vulnerable with you and everyone for a minute, I am not the best identifier of my own blind spots, my wife can attest to that. So how I mean, so much of the who should this conversation be had with question that I was asking you previously? How can we identify or how can we get our blind spots identified and not be, not be rude about it not be you know, have our claws out when that conversation is happening? Whitney: That is a little tricky, right? Like, who likes being told that you're not so good at this? Michael: Tell me all the things I can't do well, yeah, it's not a fun conversation. Whitney: Right, so I think, you know, um, you do having that conversation with somebody that you know, love and trust. I did this this is I started this off like years ago, I sent me an operator, ,I sent a survey out to like my best friend, like my 10 a small group of friends and I asked them, it was anonymous. They, they could say whatever they wanted on the survey, now, it's only 10 people, you kind of figure out who like said, What, but that, like, what do I have an opportunity to develop? And you know, it's really, it was really interesting, I got some great feedback and that's how you have to take it, it's feedback, right… Michael: It's not criticism… Whitney: …Like, we look in the mirror, we're looking at a direct reflection, but we're not seeing the back of our head, there's just no way for us to see, you know, around our body, like how many times you've walked out a bathroom got toilet paper stuck on the backside of your shoe, right? Like you just, there's just no way, so we have to get somebody that has seen all sides of us and the good guy, my ugly, right? I'm also like, I love having those people in my life and it's just radical candor, okay, it doesn't mean that it's not love. I actually, you know, find it more endearing and more empowering. If I have somebody that's willing to tell me where I like with, you know, with some love and just like, hey, listen, like, you know, you move really fast up into topic, I know you and I know, you don't mean to do that but it'd be really cool if you could just like look me in the eye and say that you understood where I was coming from before you saw the problem and that that's for me, like, that was feedback that I got? No, I was just like, what do you mean? You know, my first I was, I was first taken aback and then I was like, you know, what, do you know how many thoughts went through my head before the words came out of my mouth? Like, I was like, thinking about her mom and thinking about this, like all these different situations and how I could help her and then like, I would love from her telling me what's wrong in her day to like me telling her, this is how we're going to fix it and I didn't… I, my problem is I don't actually like say all those things are going through my head first to create empathy. I think those are amazing things to hear back because it just gives us an opportunity to create a richer relationship with people… Michael: Oh, that's so good, that's so good and I'm right there with you. I'm so guilty of the same thing, I'm like, oh, cool, here's the problem, well, here's the solution. It's like, well, maybe that's not always the best way to go about it. There's a lot of other things that we could do in the in the in between… Whitney: Yeah, I mean, it gives you an opportunity to kind of put tools in place. When I was given that feedback. Um, I, I like when searching for tools, like, do I just need to, like, ask more questions. That's always a great thing and, but also, like, I, my question now that I asked is one I'm like, do you need me to help you solve this? Or do you just need me to listen, you know… Michael: Yes, yes… Whitney: And half the time, it's like, no, I just need you to listen, I'm like, okay, then, of course, I'm like, I got a solution. Michael: I have the answer, it's a magic. Whitney: Yeah, but anyways, you know, we've kind of like, you know, dove down a rabbit hole there but I think it can be a blind spot in any sort of way. Like, I think it's just, you know, again, you know, we're, it, we're having a human experience, right, I heard a quote from one of a, an old coach of mine, he was like, we're just here, you can have any human experience, we're all walking each other home and so you know, you just can't take that feedback about your blind spots too, personally, because really, at the end of the day, the person is, you know, really trying to tell you what you can do to improve yourself. I would be more worried if somebody said, you don't have any blind spots, right? You're just kind of like, really? There's nothing for me to work on, like… Michael: Yeah, totally, totally. Awesome, okay. So we covered mindset, we just tackled skill set, what's the third thing to be aware of… Whitney: Networks, right. So this is an extension of the who, not how, and I think women really excel at building networks and but I want to dive deeper, because it's not exactly building the network, but building the right network, right. So the network is, you know, when you hit a level of achievement, you're missing, you know, a skill or a person to help you get to that next area. So I mean, I think this is a huge thing. You know, we've all heard the quote from Jim Rohn, you are the average of the five people that you surround yourself with. I would really challenge you, I do this with my coaching clients every single year and they they hate it and they love it at the same time. We do a purge exercise, I have them list out everybody everything in their life and move things to a purge column that just aren't serving them. Now, the first time they do this, they're just like, there's no way that I'm going to like stop talking to that family member and I'm like, I'm not asking you to stop talking to them, I'm asking you to identify those areas in your life, those toxic relationships, maybe like relationships that are holding you down, right? They're not elevating you to that next level of business where you want it be, they challenge, they challenge you in some way, they, they're holding you back. Maybe there's double standards there, they can do it, but you can't, right. Or maybe they've just have a victim mentality, and you just need to throw them back the rope and be there be loving, be open, but like, You got to figure out your problems on your own because I, I gotta go solve this over here, not that, right. So, um, you know, surrounding yourself with the right people that need to be in your world in order to get to that next level. I know, when I got into real estate, that was super hard for two reasons: One, nobody around me was doing real estate, I didn't have, I didn't feel like I had permission. I was, I was crazy. I was like, you're buying your, you're spending how much on a house I'm like… I'm not spending, it's investing… And two, my mom was still alive, bless her soul, I mean, it's such a strong, amazing woman to learn from. But I was, I was scared of my mom, like when I needed her permission to invest in you know, she finally just kind of like understood, like, before she passed away that I was I needed to do what I was gonna do. But we had, like, we had some odds there. But I eventually had to be like, you know what, we're gonna agree to disagree and I'm still gonna, I'm still here, I'm your daughter, I love you and you just need to let me do what I'm going to do. But that's hard, those are hard relationships to kind of set aside. But once you kind of create that space, right, you know, whether you actually put boundaries on those relationships, or eliminate the toxic… toxicity and double standards, you can you the first time you do that exercise, you may or may not actually take any action, but over time, you'll realize you have to in order to move up to the next level. Now you got to fill the void when you start moving those people out, now you got to fill the void and backfill with people that are, you know, maybe just right above you that are doing what you have are what what you want to do, go find a mentor, go find the quote, scope be part of a mastermind, right? When you help fill that void at the next level… Michael: And how I mean, you mentioned it, and I think it's so applicable for so many people, especially a lot of our listeners, maybe who are just getting started who don't have five other people to surround themselves with. How do you build that network? How do you go? Yeah, how do you how do you build that network? Whitney: So internet… You know, that's great. I love this question and I'm really glad you're one of my favorite ways is actually through podcast? Michael: Oh, really… Whitney: I'm in, you know, when we think of network, or a mentor, or coach, it doesn't actually mean that you have to exchange money, I think there needs to be a time at some point in time that, you know, if you really are serious about building your business and scaling, you're gonna find you want to short cut your path to growth, right, you want somebody like looking over your shoulder partnering with you. But when you're just starting out, um, you know, maybe it's like, choosing like, you know, visiting, like a math meetup, like locally finding some, a couple local investors that you resonate with and then like two or three podcasts, people that you love, and you follow, and you just, you know, these are the people again, it's kind of like you're the gifts part you just, like, want to listen to them all the time. You know, that can even be like a great way to surround yourself in that environment until you can actually, you know, build out that the physical network and to do that, again, meetups can be great. And now that we have zoom, you know, it's proliferated in the past couple years, you know, meetups, a lot of meetups are still virtual. I love conferences, too because conferences, you get like a high density of like, like, a awesome, like investors and operators and stuff like that. So can you find those conferences? For me, I'm attending best ever conference here next week in Denver, Colorado. But that's geared towards multifamily and self-storage, new maybe you're more into single family homes, there's a, there's a conference out there for that, like attend those events. One, you can get your stuff around operators, which we've talked about in length, but too you can get around yourself around other investors that are doing bigger and better things and that you that you want to do… Michael: That's so good and just one kind of piece of advice, piggybacking off that is when you go to these events, and you go to these in person conferences, or even just these zoom meetings, set an intention, and then follow up on it because I think so many people go to these conferences and it gets super excited and get super hyped and then go back home kind of bored. They might be isolated and don't have a network around them, they're like, oh, well, that was cool but now I'm you know, back to reality here and you never do anything with it… Whitney: Well, it's all about execution, right? You don't go to the you go to the conference right to learn information, but how can you carry the whole point in building the network is to reger… is for regular engagement. How can you make two or three friends at that conference that you're going to maybe like, do put together a little mini mastermind yourself, you guys are going to meet monthly and hold each other accountable on your goals. You don't have to be doing the exact same thing, you're just like both kind of like, you're all just kind of, you know, going in the same direction in your build, right, your wealth build. You know, you can join, you can join paid masterminds for that type of thing. But it's just it's about the consistency and the persistency of staying engaged, right? You can't, you can't just like attend one conference and go, hey, I built a network. Michael: I did it now… Whitney: Yeah, now we just have to be cultivated. I mean, I think people hate the word networking, I actually do a module like with my coaching clients on this. Networking is just us having a conversation. It's really me just asking for directions, right? So how can we like you know, you know, make that just like a regular regular thing. I'm part of the women's go abundance and there's, you know, there's four of us that meet like, every two weeks, whether we have like anything that's for progress forward. We meet every two weeks, we set an intention and I know I've done this, I'm guilty of this. I know like our meeting is on Thursday, I committed to some things two weeks ago, they're not done… I got, I got a report on that, right… And why and it's sometimes it's just like, well, darn, it's just easier for me to get it done but it keeps you moving forward and that's part of the networking it's the accountability, too… Michael: Totally! I think networking, so often has this connotation around me using someone or you being used by someone else but really, I think renaming it or reframing it to call it relationship building is that a stitious? Whitney: Yeah, rapport building relationship building, like, there's you don't have, there doesn't have to be an exchange of anything other than just like report initially and, you know, I mean, we've all been to those events, that the networking events where somebody is like shoving all their cards in your hands, that's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about actually finding somebody that you just like, you know, at the core fundamental that you resonate with, like, either you guys are walking a similar path, or they're just like, I like put, I like being in the room, or I am the dumbest person in the room. Like, I love that, and it pushes me, but at the same time, I also put myself in situations where I'm the mentor, and I'm giving back and it's just as rewarding. Michael: That's so good, that's so good. Whitney, we covered mindset, skill set, networking, anything else that you'd recommend to be a rockstar, badass woman investor? Whitney: Well, I think it's just continuing to, like, revisit these questions on a regular basis, right, because every time you you, you level up a part of your portfolio or achieve a goal, you now have to change who you have to become to get to the next level. So the mindset that got me to buying my first one or two single family properties, compared to the mindset that I have to have it now is entirely different. So it is an evolving process. You're constantly having to level up your mindset, your skill sets in your next your network to reach the next level. So it's not stagnant, this isn't one and done, this is like perpetual work that you have to do on yourself. Michael: That's so good because I think so many people think about it. If I can just get this one deal, I you know, I'm there if I can just do this one thing that I'm there but it sounds like that's not the case, it's this ever evolving kind of evergreen cycle. Whitney: I mean, I knew very few investors that have gotten like four or five or 10 single family properties that didn't want didn't go hmm oh, I have a multifamily look great, now you gotta like level level up right? You got to learn or do at least a whole new skill set and you know, probably expand your network to like figure out how to do the multifamily property. Michael: I love it, I love it. Really this was so good. If people have questions for you want to reach out to you what's the best way for them to get in touch?
