DoorGrow Hackers love the opportunities, daily variety, unique challenges, and freedom that property management brings. Many in real estate think you're crazy for doing it, you think they're crazy for not because you realize that property management is the ultimate high trust gateway to real estate deals, relationships, and residual income. At DoorGrow, we are on a mission to transform property management businesses and business owners. I'm your host, property management growth expert, Jason Hull, the founder and CEO of DoorGrow. Now, let's get into the show. For today's show, I wanted to talk with all of you about what's been going on at DoorGrow. Over the years, I've made some big mistakes in business like most business owners, this is part of how we learn. We take risks that other people are unwilling to take. One of the biggest mistakes that I made in my business was, I sometimes call my $2 million mistake, but it was probably even bigger of a mistake. A lot of people probably would not tell you their mistakes in business. But one thing that I think is super validating as an entrepreneur is to hear about some of my mentors' challenges and some of the mistakes that others that I have worked with that they have made, it makes me feel safe. It makes me feel like they're human, I'm human. It helps entrepreneurs also to see that you're not supposed to be perfect all the time. It's not always going to be great or perfect in business. One of the big mistakes that I made is I had really great growth in my business. Things were going really well. We were bringing out a lot of clients. We had some clients getting great results. We had some clients not getting great results. Usually, in most coaching programs, what I've learned is that about 20% will be bad clients. They're not going to do it, they're not going to take action, they're not going to get results. No matter how hard you try or how good you do, that's generally going to be the case if you're a growing company. If you're not a growing company, then you can be super cautious, super picky, and that sort of thing. But we are in high paced growth. One challenging factor is we had some clients that were a bad fit, and over time, we were always trying to filter, be more careful, raise our pricing, and be pickier about the clients that we take on, which is what I recommend to all of you. I recommend you to be very picky about the clients that you take on. But we had great growth. I started working with the coach. We had 300% growth in a year. We were really moving. Things were going really fast. Things were really good. There was a lot of momentum. I built out a really awesome team, it felt really exciting, and then I had this great idea that I thought would be a great idea. I had always had this dream of doing a conference. So I came up with this idea to do this big conference. I didn't want it to be small. I was looking at all the other conferences that were going on. I saw what they did and this has to be next level. It's got to be as good as this. Even my coach at the time was like, hey, do something small, just start small. I'm like, no way, I'm going big, I'm going to make this awesome. We're going to have the best food, Paleo food, and gluten-free options. Even the food was going to be really nice. We're going to do this really ritzy venue. We did it at this really nice hotel. This conference cost us well over six figures. It was, I think, $150,000 or something like that all in we spent on this conference. That's not that bad if you're a business that's doing about a million in revenue, I guess that's okay as long as you make revenue from it, if you're just doing simple math. Anybody that's done a significant event knows how challenging these are to put together. But here's the caveat to this or the challenge is we had 300% growth in the year. Then the year we decided to do a conference, we then had to shift all of our attention towards this conference. The thing that you don't realize when you launch a conference or you get on the hook for a conference is you have to get this venue and you're on the hook with the venue, which means you owe them money. You have a contract with them. If you don't sell enough tickets and you don't sell enough people getting there, you're not going to get enough people into rooms, you're responsible for a certain group rate and amount of people, and there's this big expense. The other thing is they usually want that money upfront, a lot of it or in big chunks, and then there's this whole racket hotel. They are a monopoly on food. They don't allow outside food vendors or outside food to be brought in. You have to pay thousands. I think we spent like $8000 or $9000 just for coffee—it's crazy—for two days, I think it was, three days. It just gets really crazy, and then they do things like some of these venues will charge by the plate. Say it's like $50, $60, $80 a plate, but what they do is they go around. They pick up the plates, and then people go and get another plate to get another item or another food and they're charging you per plate. There are just little things that are a little bit shady in how that industry can work sometimes. I was completely blind to a lot of this stuff. I was really nervous about putting it together, but here's the real problem. Launching a conference like this required sales. It required marketing, it required organization. It requires everything that a business requires. It's like starting a business. We have this business that's doing really well. We're moving really fast. It's going really rapid, 300% growth in the year, hitting about a million in revenue. We hit a million in revenue and things were moving really fast. We probably could have continued that trajectory. Things were really good. We had a really good team in place and everything and then decided to do this conference. That year, we had no growth. We stayed flat at about a million in revenue because we did the conference. So that's why I call it my $2 million mistake because we easily could generate probably $2 million more in revenue just that year. But we also stayed flat the year after and the year after as a result. As a result, things got really crazy because we did this crazy conference, it took a massive amount of work. All of our time and attention had to shift towards that as a team, sales, marketing, everything because we were on the hook to make this work. The conference went well and we had some great speakers. I got great feedback, but to me, it was massively stressful. I wasn't really able to enjoy it. I have kind of an introverted side to me. It wasn't quite the dream that I thought it would be, but I'm glad that I did it as a learning experience. It was $2 million tuition for this learning opportunity. Maybe, if I really did some math, maybe it was a $10 million mistake, hindsight being 2020. Not only that, but by shifting our focus towards this conference and so much attention having to be placed on it, we weren't able to focus on the main thing, which is our customer and which is our product. So I had to shift out of some of the coaching stuff that I was doing. We tried to go more towards just getting people to move through the program and follow the material. We had people that weren't getting as good of results. Really, that's the piece that I enjoy the most, the one-on-one personal depth and interactions and coaching clients. Those are always the clients that get the best results. We realized that. Now, we lost a lot of team members as a result. It took a while for us to get back in momentum. I was working with a coach at the time. I got a lot of personal growth through that time period, so it was a good time period. It caused me to wake up to a lot of things in my life that were really challenging or frustrating. I ended up ending my marriage of 13 years also. This is in the last several years and becoming single again after like two decades. There was just a lot, a lot of change, a lot of growth. Now we're getting back into a nice growth mode in the business and I've got some really good team members building up our team back up. My focus is really just on clients. I'm not even doing sales anymore. I'm not having to do the marketing stuff. I'm not doing any of the website stuff, branding stuff. I really just get to focus on coaching clients, which is really what I enjoy. It's the fun part for me. So I built this awesome team. What's interesting is due to these painful situations, the COVID, and all these things which were causing cash crunches or constraints, it forced us to tighten the business up. My team is smaller than it's ever been. We're more effective than we've ever been, and our product offering is better than it's ever been. We're able to deliver more value than we've ever been able to deliver at a much lower price point. Overall, these things made us, these difficult situations, these problems, and these challenges like a conference and team members quitting and leaving as a result of, then financial challenges in the business, and divorce. These kinds of things are the refiner's fire that improves us as human beings if we allow it, and improves our businesses if we allow it. Now, I'm not saying you're going to go jump into problems. I'm not saying that that's a good idea either. But I am grateful for the lessons and I'm grateful to have learned those things that I've learned. I wouldn't give up those lessons in hindsight. It enables me to have conversations with clients. This is a common entrepreneurial dilemma. Should I do this new thing? Should I expand into this thing? Should I do this cool, new idea? Should I go after the shiny object? I have this really powerful story that I get to share with clients and say, look, let me tell you about my $2 million mistake, why the main thing always needs to stay being the main thing, why focus equals power in your business, and why your attention shouldn't be diluted. Some of the concepts that I teach and some of the ideas like premature expansion, a lot of property managers prematurely want to expand their business into new niches, new markets, or new areas. They do that prematurely, they're not really ready to do that, and they just dilute their focus, which dilutes their potency and their ability to grow and scale, for example. There's a lot of lessons that came out of this. Personally, business-wise, that came as a result of that. There were clients that went through our processes and came on board as clients during some of these challenging time periods. We had some that got phenomenal results. We had some great success stories, clients that just did what we told them to do, but not every client is like that. Not every client will just watch all your videos, show up to every call, invest all the time that you tell them to do, and do the work. Most need a lot more hand-holding, I've realized. We weren't able to really hold people's hands very effectively during that. So there were people that sort of fell through the cracks, and I felt bad about that. Some became very vocal about me and my business online. But the most vocal people, ironically, that are negative about DoorGrow and about me are people that have never worked with me in a lot of instances. They love hearing that the decision they made to never work with me is so validated by the few [...] clients that really don't like us, that didn't get a good result, or didn't put in the effort and didn't do the work. As a property manager, you're going to have these situations too. You're going to have an owner that you shouldn't have taken on. You didn't realize it. Maybe you had pretty good qualifications and you qualified them during the sales process, but they still made their way into your business. Unbeknownst to you, maybe they're wolves in sheep's clothing or whatever, but you realized it and you fired them. I have fired clients. I have just refunded clients. We've let clients go. Some just quit. That is a situation that comes up, and so we've gotten much better over the years at qualifying clients. We have an application people fill out just to work with us to make sure that we can help them. We're looking for certain qualities and we make them jump through some serious hoops. We give out. We give away a two-hour training currently called The Seven Frameworks for Growth or DoorGrow Secrets that we give out of free material teaching a lot of my frameworks and the secrets that I love to share with clients. I just give that away because I know if the right people will go through this and they'll see value in it, and the wrong people will go through this and they won't find it valuable. So they sell filters, or they just won't even invest the time to do that because it's kind of a prerequisite. If they're not willing to watch all that and do that, they're not going to really watch all the material, take action, and do the things that we tell them to do in the program either because they're lazy, so they're not going to get the result. There have been zero clients that I've had that have actually done what I've told them to do that have not won and gotten results and benefited from the program. The one quality or one characteristic that I have to have in a client if they're going to get a result is that they're willing to do the work and take action. So now, in our program, just to become a client, not only do they have to watch a two-hour training, they have to fill out an application. We also have a requirement I call the three commitments. This is something that I would recommend that you implement in your own business. But we have this framework we call the three commitments. The three things they have to commit to in order for us to guarantee that they're going to get results, and we offer a guarantee. If you are willing to spend one hour being a business owner of your business, this is the first commitment. One hour of strategic time means you actually operate like a business owner. Not doing all the tactical stuff, which a team member or an employee could do—emailing, calling, or whatever. Strategic stuff: planning, scheming, watching the material that we have in DoorGrow Academy. This needs to be done early in the morning before work, before you start your day, before kids, before pets, and before your day runs away from you. You need some quiet time for strategic time, the best time, after you've had a good night's rest and your brain is full of all the brain decision-making chemicals that it needs to think strategic time. Give you the best time. The king or queen needs it first. Otherwise, you'll always have a starving kingdom, I like to say. The second commitment that's required is to be willing to dedicate at least two hours each workday, five days a week towards implementing tactically the strategies and tactics that I give you. Doing the work, making the calls, outreach, dialing in operations, or whatever is the big challenge that we're solving or working on. Really, that just means, for people that want to grow that are on the growth path, because we have three different paths in our program, that means that just being a part-time salesperson for 10 hours a week. I mean, that's really a [...] salesperson. That's it. Just at least do that. Ten hours minimum a week. Track your time, be accountable, check in on our weekly check-in, and let us know how many hours you've done and at least do 10. That's it. Third commitment is to show up to the weekly coaching call. I find that clients that don't show up to the call don't have any pressure, they're not accountable. I can't coach them. I can't check in with them on how they're doing. I can't redirect them away from some of the things they might be thinking, doing, or that are holding them back. I can't really coach them if they're not reachable by me. Those are the three commitments. Now we give them even more support than that. We have a Telegram group. I give all my clients access to my calendar to schedule one-on-one calls. This is all I do now is coach. They can schedule one-on-one calls with me. We work through problems, challenges, objections, things they're dealing with, or whatever, to make sure that they're in momentum and moving forward. How does that apply to your business? Could you have maybe three commitments and could you also keep your focus as I talked about on your main thing a little bit more? These are just some things that I wanted to share just in my struggles as a business owner and in my journey in developing my business. If you are one of those clients that struggled in the past, you worked with us, you didn't get a great result, I'm perfectly willing to coach you for free. We'll do a 30-day trial between the two of us. If you're willing to commit to taking action, I'll coach you for free. We'll get you a result, and then at the end of that 30 days, we'll both have a conversation and it will be, yes, I want to do your program and I'll pay for your mastermind. I've been getting great results and I've been keeping the three commitments. Or if you're not keeping those three commitments, then we'll part ways and I'll kick you out, but you'll probably choose that. You'll realize, hey, this isn't for me, I'm not really going to do this stuff. We've got clients that are adding hundreds of doors to this program, and they're not spending any money on advertising. They're not having to deal with cold [...] leads, they're able to charge more money, the potential clients are less price-sensitive because we're capturing them earlier in the sales cycle. So I'm going to teach you how to do the unscalable things that actually scale your business. It's all about more depth, more personal connection, and creating more relationships, and we'll scale your business. Most property management companies are losing doors right now. They're down. Mostly, the larger ones are down about 200 doors. A significant chunk of their portfolio is selling because the markets are high, investors are getting the itch, and they want to get out, sell, and make some money. They're cashing out. Our clients are growing and they're adding doors. They're net positive. They're making money and building up residual income. They're not even spending money on advertising. That's my client. That's pretty powerful and it's true. It's working really well. I'm going to teach you how to do unscalable things. SEO, Google ads, all that kind of stuff, that's scalable. It's something you can hand money and whatever. I'm going to teach you how to do the unscalable things that actually are really working in the marketplace right now to help you grow your business, so you can capture more businesses that are less price-sensitive, that are captured earlier in the sales cycle, and your close rate is infinitely higher with those warmer leads, and it is with cold leads through those other strategies. We'll give you that free training that you can watch—our Seven Frameworks training. Just reach out, we're happy to give that to you and get you hopefully on as a client in our process. I don't know if there's anything else I should say about my $2 million mistake. All of us as entrepreneurs are going to have experiences and challenges that we make a bad decision or business. Maybe you've never had one, but that probably means you're playing a game that's too small or you're being too cautious. The lessons end up always being worth the risk. So take a risk, invest in yourself, invest in your business, reach out if we can help you, and keep your business focused on your main thing, which is your property management business. Grow that thing and keep the focus tight. It's so tempting as an entrepreneur to be distracted and to go towards other things. Let's start a roofing company. Let's start a pool cleaning company. Let's start a carpet cleaning company. Let's start a maintenance company. There may be a place for these and maybe it will help you add some revenue. But in a lot of instances, adding more to the business ends up actually taking away from the main thing. So you have to get to the place where you've got a solid team that you can trust to make sure everything's running smoothly before you start to add additional pieces and start additional companies. Anyway, that's it. I've had this on my agenda for a while to share my $2 million mistake. I just had other topics that were a lot more exciting for me to share, but I wanted to share this. If you have any questions, if you are a client that went through some of that stuff with us and you felt like you didn't get results, reach out to me. I want to make sure that we take care of you. If you're bitter and upset and you're not open to that, then that's cool. Don't reach out. I know there's always some of those out there. The more successful we are, the more we attract. We build up a little group of haters because we've worked with thousands of clients, and I've talked to thousands of property managers. We've got hundreds of clients right now. We've got 80 businesses in our mastermind right now, which is just crazy to me. It's really awesome. People are getting great results. Today's call was a really good call since I'm just kind of riffing and chatting here. I love hearing our clients get results. Yeah, it was a good call today. Anyway, each week we start by sharing wins on our Grow call. Anyway, that's all I have today to share. Feel free to hit me up on social media if you want to check in with me. My username is @kingjasonhull. Happy to have a conversation because this is all I do. I love coaching my clients. I really enjoy helping people grow and win in their businesses. If you want to know if I'm the real deal, set up a call with me. Let's chat. I will say I'll point out that I'm in every property management group and every real estate group probably that exists on Facebook. There's a property management group that has a kind of a culture of negativity towards me and they don't like me, which is cool. It's not my group. I chime in every now and then to try and be helpful. I'll admit, as a business owner, it hurts, just like it probably hurts you when you see an owner bad mouth your business or whatever. But when I see a past client maybe that really I didn't even know or they didn't really talk to me, they didn't show up to the calls, they didn't really work with me, they didn't really take action, they just signed up with us and hope the website would magically do the work for them for some reason, something like that, yeah, it hurts. It hurts to see people complain. Especially, it's frustrating to see people that have never worked with me tell other people to work with businesses. I saw one guy mention like, somebody said, hey, should I work with DoorGrow? One of my past clients was like, yeah, we had a good experience, but he knows the culture there and was afraid of really saying too much like talking to them directly. Then there were a bunch of people that were negative. One guy was like, hey, you, don't use them, use this other company. So I reached out to this guy directly and I said, hey, what was your experience with that other company? I'm always looking for ways to benefit my clients and they're like, oh, I've never worked with them, but the people seemed cool there. I was like, okay, so you've never worked with me. You've never worked with this other company either, but you're telling people not to work with me and to work with this other company. To me, that is a massive lack of integrity. I'm not going to recommend somebody go do something or work with something unless they've done that themselves or gotten a lot of feedback from other clients or people that have done this so that I can share that, but that's just me. Anyway, that made me sad. That's part of the challenge we have to deal with as business owners. You're going to have some haters and you just do what you can. That sort of inspired this episode. I hope this was helpful. I hope hearing my situation was helpful. I hope you stay focused on the main thing and you win in business and life. If I can support you in any way, reach out. Anyway, until next time, to our mutual growth. Bye, everyone.

In 2002 Mark developed a new, live patient, over the shoulder program with Dr. Rod Gore and Gary Takacs Desert Mountain Aesthetic Seminars. And, when Dr. Rhys Spoor developed his live-patient program in Seattle, Mark was asked to provide the ceramics for his program. He has also worked over the years as a lab instructor for the Hornbrook Group. His hands-on, Durathin Veneer®courses with Dr. Dennis Wells are helping dentists across the country provide their patients with viable, beautiful, minimal-prep options. Today, Mark's great love and passion for continuing education continues. He teaches a number of live, hands-on courses and ceramic programs across the country each designed to enhance the skills of dentists interested in leading-edge aesthetic techniques. Mark has participated in the cementation of literally thousands of restorations. These live patient experiences have provided Mark with opportunities most ceramists don't enjoy and have given him a unique insight into what dentists desire to achieve with their patients. This unique insight has become the foundation for an artistic perspective very few ceramists develop during their careers. And perhaps most importantly, this unique insight continues to translate into direct benefits for Experience Dental Studio client dentists, and their patients. The consistency that dentists know and expect from Experience Dental Studio has come in part from Mark's dedication to CE, his pursuit of perfection, and his teaching abilities. Every Experience Dental Studio team member has been carefully sought out and personally trained by Mark to execute his vision for excellence. https//www.EXPERIENCEDENTALSTUDIO.COM https//www.durathin.com Thank you to our sponsors Findlay Volvo Las Vegas https://www.findlayvolvocarslv.com/ Samaritans Feet https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/KellyCardenas?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign=20220105_ Pinks4Cancer https://recycling4acure.org/ Cardenas Law Group https://cardenaslawgroup.com/ Squeeze Dried https://squeezedried.com/ PAUL MITCHELL HAIR CARE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR STEP https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/collections/all-products BLING SHINE SERUM-The #1 seller of over 15years and the only product to be endorsed by my MAMA! https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/products/kelly-cardenas-salon-bling?_pos=1&_sid=6a4a4c2b4&_ss=r WEBSITE https://www.kellycardenas.com/ Executive Producer- MAKENA CARDENAS
Paul Rathnam didn't take the traditional approach of sitting diwn and writing a business plan outlining how he was going to build a multi million dollar company making pools out of shipping containers. Rather, his journey was one of listening to the market and then leaning in. The pools are cool, no pun intended and so is Paul, you'll love his story and all the business advice he drops from lessons learned along the way.

Are your wondering how to get bigger clients and grow into a multi-million dollar agency? Mary Ann Pruitt has a background working in media and was unsure about starting her own agency. Now at her agency, Mosaic Media, she works hand-in-hand with other agency owners, business owners, marketing departments, and media buyers to provide a multi-pronged strategy supporting clients' marketing goals. On the show, Mary Ann talks about the early days of having a full-service integrated media agency and how things changed once she took the step to niche down. She also shares why agency owners should trust their team and stay in their lane to focus on business development and growth. 3 Golden Nuggets Focusing on what you do best. Like most agencies, Mary Ann's started being a full-service integrated media agency. It worked for a while, but she says she was constantly banging her head against the wall feeling frustrated. She felt like they could never land a big brand or were not able to make it. That all changed once she started asking herself how she would build the agency into what it needed to be. She figured out what they're the best at and what's a business model they could build. Niching down was a scary step, but after getting the first client in their niche, Mosaic Media saw significant growth in a 12-month period. Focus on your own marketing. Too many people think they need to hire a sales hunter right off the bat but don't give them a clear call to action. Mary Ann works with many agencies and something she says is an unpopular, but necessary tip is there is no magic salesperson to grow your business. You need to be building your own brand and build your own funnels. It's your job as the agency owner. As you're scaling and as you're growing, 50% of your day should be spent on business development. Stay in your lane. Agency owners can sometimes get caught in growth mode. They keep going and pushing. But when your team doesn't need you for the little things anymore, it's a great moment. That is when you know you have transitioned from agency owner to agency CEO. You may feel your team no longer needs you but actually, there's a lot for you to do. Like figuring out what new offerings should you be researching and how can you take this to the next level and continue to grow. Grow your team and nurture your team to the point that you can trust their judgment. “We just need to know where our strengths are and our lane is and stay in that lane and not get in the way of everybody else doing the work,” Mary Ann assures.

Jason Swenk here and I am excited, I have another amazing woman that owns an amazing agency on today's podcast. And we're going to talk about how she's grown to a multimillion-dollar agency in the past decade, what she's learned, what you can learn and learn it faster, right? So let's go ahead and get into the episode. All right, Mary Ann. Welcome to the show. Mary Ann: [00:00:31] Thanks, Jason. It's so great to be on. Jason: [00:00:33] Yeah. Excited to have you on. So tell us who you are and what you do? Mary Ann: [00:00:37] Yeah. My name is Mary Ann Pruitt and I'm with Mosaic Media. We are a media firm that partners with agencies in the paid media space, uh, anything with traditional, digital, and even in the PR and crisis comms space. So that's what we do. Jason: [00:00:52] Awesome. And so how did you get started? I always like to ask people why they got into this industry. Mary Ann: [00:00:59] My background. I mean, it's so funny. My background was in media, actually. I was in media sales for many years as a top sales agent for some of the largest media firms in the nation. And frankly, I fought going agency side for a long time, just because there was an image that went with that, and a… Jason: [00:01:17] What image is that? Mary Ann: [00:01:20] Yeah, is that you go from that side just because, and you're never going to be actually a successful agency. So, yeah. So I fought that for a while and frankly it, I realized, okay, you've reached your peak. You're still young. You can keep making great money for the rest of your career and stay comfortable, but you'll never be challenged. You'll never feel excitement like the new sale and the next sale, everything. It's just gonna be the same thing over and over and over again. So I took that leap of faith in myself and started an agency. Uh, we started really small. We started, like most agencies, we started full service where we were very broad and we're the full service integrated media agency. Jason: [00:01:58] We don't want to seclude anybody. Mary Ann: [00:02:00] Yeah. We don't, no, we're going to… We serve everybody. And then we realized, really honestly about six years ago is when we made a huge shift and focusing on what we were good at. It's an amazing thing. Focus really on the one thing you're good at. And we started to see our revenue, frankly, start to double year over year. Jason: [00:02:19] So before you got the focus, where were you at in revenue, head space, and number of people? Mary Ann: [00:02:28] We were at, in a very, very good year we were having a million like year over year. You know, when you first start, it's pretty easy to double your revenue because your first year's revenue is 250, 300. Then you're going out 300 to 600. That's such an easy, easy jump. And then really, truly, probably in 2016, we were hitting just at a million. And now we are projected eight times that. So where was my head space in that? I felt like I was banging my head against the wall constantly. It was this… why do I feel like we can't ever land the big brand? Or why can't we ever do this? Or why, you know, it's that frustration. And in our team, there was five of us? And actually, the wonderful, amazing thing about that, it would, we still have to have those employees with us today. They were with me from the beginning and now they're our senior VP team. And it's amazing to see how they have grown as we've evolved as an agency. Uh, so yeah, so the headspace, the revenue, it was frustrating. It was, uh, you felt like, okay, how do we break through? And then frankly, I had, I called them come to Jesus moments where I was just like, look, what are we going to do? How, how, how am I going to build this agency to what it needs to be? And I frankly locked myself in a room for a couple of days. And what are you good at? What are you the best at? And what's a business model you can build. That's where we went and it was a leap of faith. It was scary to niche down, but we did it. And now we've seen that revenue just multiply every year. Jason: [00:04:05] How long did it start until you… When you committed to that decision, when did you feel that you started getting momentum? Mary Ann: [00:04:13] It really takes a good, well, almost right out of the gate within the first three months we caught one client that was, all right, this is part of our niche. And I was like, all right, this is great. It's going to work. Then I started testing it with other people of how I was using that language and how I was using that elevators speech and all of a sudden things started to happen more and more. I'd go to a conference and I test something and… more and more. And really that first year is where we saw it grow significantly, probably that 12 month period. And I think that's one thing for agency owners is patience is a good thing, and we have to have faith that we know what we're doing. We're planting the seeds. Things are happening. Decisions are not made overnight. And we have to continue to cultivate that. Probably within… so the first year and two years, it's then refining the systems. You're going from being small mom and pop to now, okay, I've got decent sized revenue. How am I growing the team? How are we building our efficiencies and building the processes a whole new level of challenges come. And then when the pandemic hit, actually, we grew even more. Part of that was our inbound and our thought leadership was pretty strong going into the pandemic and people were looking for answers. And frankly, that's where we started to just evolve from there and get more and more out of it. But really I'm a big believer in helping people and when you have that mindset and you're not going in for the pitch all the time, but you're there for the relationship and to help… That makes a big difference. Jason: [00:05:53] Taking care of your employees has never been more important than right now. And while paydays are great, running payroll is a major pain, from calculating taxes, deductions, compliances. None of it is easy. Unless of course you have Gusto. Gusto is simple, online payroll benefits built for small business. Gusto automatically applies your payroll taxes and directly deposits your team's paychecks, freeing you up to work on your business. Plus with their help, you can offer benefits like 401ks, health insurance, workers' comp, and a lot more. And because you're a smart agency master class listener, you're going to get three months free once you run your first payroll. Go to gusto.com/agency. That's gusto.com/agency for three free months. I'm so glad that you said that because people have such an angle of going, well, I want to scale. Well, first they don't know why they want to scale, and there's no reason, I guess it's just a brag. I mean, I remember, when I had the first agency, I remember we would brag by how many employees we would have. And then if someone was like, I have 50 employees. Oh, fifty. I have a hundred. And then you're like, what's wrong with me? Or, you know, like when you were at 10 or 20 and, uh… So I'm glad you mentioned that because that's, you gotta have a direction, but I'm glad too, that you started focusing on the brand and doing your own marketing. I think too many people think that they need to hire a sales hunter right off the bat. They don't give them a clear call to action of who to contact, but I'm like if you build the brand and you build a brand that's helpful for a particular market, you can create all this business that a closer can come in and close and it makes it so much easier. Mary Ann: [00:07:54] That's exactly right. And frankly, a lot of agency owners and we primarily work in the agency space. That is what we do. We help agencies. So we help you build your media team, we help assess your media team. We help be the relieve pressure for a big agencies and their media. But then also helps supplement anything that you can't offer currently and actually become a revenue source for you. That's what we do. So I'm in contact with agency owners every day, and a big thing that I say regularly that they know they need to hear, but probably isn't too popular is business development falls on us as the agency owners. And we can try all day long to go get that magic salesperson or go get somebody to go get the sales for us. We need to be building our own brand and we need to be building our own funnels. And frankly, it's the expertise that we offer. That's our job as the business owner and as the agency owner. Um, frankly, we shouldn't be in the weeds all day long of doing the actual work. We need to be, if you're, as you're scaling and as you're growing. 50% of your day should be going towards business development. That is how you grow. And that is how you focus and get your company back onto a growth path, frankly. So I'm with you on that of you have to be patient and you have to cultivate those seeds. Uh, but also don't look for a magic bullet. Know what you're good at. Niche down to that. And don't be scared to niche down to that and focus. I mean, I live in Anchorage, Alaska. Okay. We're a small. 95% of our work is not in Anchorage, Alaska. We are in all 50 states doing work. How are we doing that? Because I didn't get caught in the market that I live in. I didn't get caught into a small mindset. I got, I let myself and the company then evolve to think bigger than where we lived or where we operated out of. Now I have employees all over the place. I live in Alaska. It's amazing how, honestly, frankly, the last 18 months have taught us all a lot of you don't have to be in a brick and mortar anymore. And we all knew that, but now we're so much more comfortable with it. So there's all these different elements as an agency owner that we have to be honest with ourselves and we have to know what's holding us back. And sometimes it's us. That's the bottleneck. Jason: [00:10:17] Truth be told we're always the bottleneck until, until you realize you're the bottleneck and you get out of your way, you know, like we had, um, a couple of weeks back, we had our agency experience where we had 25 of the best agency owners come out to Colorado. And a lot of us were taught like a lot of the takeaways were, man. We, we have the best like they're multi-million dollar agencies. We've done this over the years and the owner is still crippling their team for making decisions. And they're like the toll booth that everything's flowing through them. And we're like… I literally stole the computer of one of our members so she couldn't be emailing all day and like hid it. I was like, no, like your team will be fine. Like go, go on vacation. And that's a lot of advice I give to people a lot is, hey, go wait for a week or two weeks and come back. Mary Ann: [00:11:15] Yep. And honestly, so if we look at it and we realize and recognize where we're holding things up or what we're not doing on our end, we need to question, why are we doing that? What control am I trying to gain back from my team or from the product? What am I afraid of? What's holding me back? What anchor is holding me back there and what anchor do I need to cut? I often say this and is that anchor serves a purpose. They are things that are supposed to keep us grounded. There are things they're supposed to keep us steady, but anchors also can hold us back. So what is it that I need to work on that I need to cut back because we are the bottlenecks. So before COVID, I had this rule that I'd actually work out of the office one day a week. And what I found was that was the most productive day for my team because I wasn't there and they got so much done and they knew exactly what they were doing. And like, you know, this is a true testament to let them be, let them do their job. They'll come to you when they need things. So when we feel like we need to control, or we feel like we need to be on top of everything, is there a trust factor there? We hired them, we trust them. We know our executive team, so we know that we can trust them in that element. I'm not saying be completely hands-off. That is not what I'm saying in any way. We just need to know where our strengths are and our lane is, and stay in that lane and not get in the way of everybody else doing the work. Jason: [00:12:41] Yeah. And, and when you start getting out of the way, and I always warn people on this… When the agency doesn't need you for the small things that you used to do, it's all pretty hard thing to swallow because you're like, oh, crap business doesn't need me anymore, but I want you to remember it needs you for something else. So you're transitioning from an owner to a true CEO. Then that's when you can scale. That's when you can sell it, if you want, or you can take long vacations. I've had clients that have come to me in the past that never took vacations. And I'm like, that's the number one thing we're going to work on. Like, why the F are you working so hard if you can't enjoy it? Like, this is crazy. Mary Ann: [00:13:32] Well, and I think… We also get caught in our growth mode of where we want to be, right? So we're on that trajectory. We keep going, we keep pushing and, you know, it's the, it's the oxygen mask. We have to take care of ourselves first, we have to put the oxygen mask on first and then put it on the others. So we're building this team in order for us to be able to then transition, like you said, transition into something else. So when, when they no longer need us for the little things it's actually a great moment of we've grown as a company. I'm now a CEO. I'm no longer just a small business owner. Now I'm a CEO working at an executive level, thinking visionary thoughts of where I need to go with the company. What do I need to do next? What new offerings do I need to be researching? How can I then take this to the next level and continue to grow? So it actually opens up so much more opportunity for us as agency owners to have that growth trajectory and mindset. It's a total mindset shift. Jason: [00:14:32] It is, it is. Well, this has all been amazing Mary Ann. Is there anything I didn't ask you that you think would benefit the audience? Mary Ann: [00:14:38] You know, I think we always just have to be honest with ourselves of how are we getting in the way for our own good, but for others and our team. And making sure that we are doing everything we possibly can to just grow our team, but nurture our team and take care of ourselves in the process, as well as grow the company and stay into the, and get out of the way mentally, physically get out of the way. It's fine. And now I've heard about it. Don't worry about it. Jason: [00:15:08] Awesome. What's the agency website people can go and check out? Mary Ann: [00:15:12] You can go to mosaic.agency/contact that comes straight to me. Jason: [00:15:16] Awesome. Well, thanks so much, Mary Ann, for coming on the show.

About ARCH Investments:We are Rosie and Allan of ARCH Investments from Kent. We have built a diverse, multi-million pound property portfolio over the last 3 years, which has now enabled me (Rosie) to leave my job and become a full-time property investor (Jan 2021). We started out focussing on buy to lets in the North West and were not intending on moving away from this model until a 12 bed HMO landed on our laps and turned us to the dark side. Since then we have begun to focus on diversifying our portfolio further with our next deal being a mixed use building in Kent. We have ticked a lot of the ‘creative property investing' boxes so far on our journey: angel financing, vendor finance, money in money out projects, direct to vendor deals, multi-property purchase agreements; and we look forward to ticking off many more in the coming few years.About your host, Tej:Tej graduated from King's' College London with a BSc Biochemistry in 2014, he then pursued a career in Medical Education and Marketing. Soon after his second job… he was fired! A moment of relief and freedom was what he felt, not sure what his mother felt when he told her he was jobless at 23…He then went in search of a more ethical path, a business he could set up where the reward was equal to the work put in. “If they are making pounds, why am I making pennies?” - was his thought process, not happy with slow progression and bureaucracy (& having to wear smart shoes everyday). This lead him to opening a Recruitment business (not sure where the ethics went) which doubled in profit every year, for 4 years. He hated it. Golden handcuffs they call it.Fortunately, he used the cash he'd built up from that business, to educate himself in Property Investing. Soon, he'd stopped the business and transitioned into Property Investment full time. He then had a slow start -Purchasing 15 properties in his first 9 months, using over £650,000 of Investor Finance, he built a £1,200,000 property portfolio and created £30,000 of profit from flips. This gave him ‘financial freedom', but it was the most stressful period of his life. Growing quickly is very painful.Let's not forget that his Podcast grew to be the most-reviewed UK Property Podcast, peaking at 4,000 unique downloads per episode.His Podcast (Tej Talks) now sits at 660,000 downloads in over 100 countries and has 489 reviews, rated 5/5.Links:https://www.instagram.com/archinvestments/?hl=enhttps://www.facebook.com/archinvestmentwww.arch-investments.co.ukLinked In: @archinvestmentsTej InvestsTej TalkseLearning See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Michael: Hey, everyone, welcome to another episode of The Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today with me I have a very heavy hitter multifamily investor syndicator Anna Kelly, throughout the entire episode I called Ana Anna and she was so graceful to not even correct me. So we have her on the show, and amazing woman, really a lot of great things that she talks about with regard to multifamily investing. Let's get right into it. Michael: Anna Kelly, thank you so much for coming on the show this morning. I really appreciate you taking the time to hang out with me. Anna: Thank you so much. I'm so glad to be here. Michael: So for those people that don't know who you are and your background, I'd love if you could give us a little bit of brief history into who Anna Kelly is. Anna: great, I will try to be really brief, right? I've been investing in real estate for a little over 20 years, I think I bought my first property in 1999. And before that I had a financial background. So I worked in the financial sector, I was a financial relationship manager for Bank of America and our private banks. So I worked with lots of traditional investments, and really had a 20 year corporate career in the traditional financial sector, working on investments for high net worth individuals. And one of the things that was interesting, Michael, is that I learned a lot about investments and what to do with it once you became wealthy. But even through all of my years of financial advisory training and college, no one taught me how do you actually create the wealth other than waiting 45 days and 45 years until your retirement accounts are finally enough that you can retire. And I had a couple of clients who were very wealthy who laughed at the double digit returns that we could offer at our bank at the time, because they made more money in real estate. And I went okay, I've learned nothing about real estate, I need to at least start to learn and see if that's something that I should consider once I have a lot of money. So I knew a lot about investments thought about real estate. But it wasn't until I had my first baby that really changed my why like, I really want to be home. I have this great six figure career I climbing up the corporate ladder, but I want to be home with my kids. And so I'm going to have to try to figure out how do I replace a six figure income doing something different from home and real estate was the way I did that. And that began a 20 year journey for me and to small multifamily large multifamily, ultimately retiring a multimillionaire through small multifamily real estate, leaving AIG two and a half years ago. And since then, I've been focused on large multifamily syndications. Michael: Oh my gosh, what the track record you had. That's awesome. So Anna: It's been a long time. Michael: I think just a blip on the radar as a blip on the radar when when you were doing your financial advising, did you think that real estate was a realistic vehicle for to get where you want it to go, or you only saw it as kind of the the finish line, that's when you could start? Anna: The latter, I had no idea how to get started in real estate, I learned not a single thing about it. It was not even an option for growing financial wealth in terms of what we were taught. It was all about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities, really to grow the wealth that you already had. And because we already worked mostly with wealthy people, we really weren't starting from the beginning with a lot of people like, you know, yes, we would, we knew what to tell you. We'd say hey, you know, set aside 10 or 15%, put it in stocks, you know, more aggressive when you're young and match, you know, everything you can for 401k company match and eventually you'll get that million dollar nest egg by the time you're 65 and then you can live on 4% of it like $40,000 a year. And supposedly you'd be really comfortable for the rest of your life. Right? Michael: Yeah. Anna: And we thought that was really smart and a good thing. But I figured it would take me that 45 years to develop that million dollar you know, nest egg I never thought wow, if I invest in something else I might be able to create a significant cash flow today that will make growing wealth possible before I'm 65 never even crossed any of the conversations that I had. Michael: Interesting. It also blows my mind that you could get double digit returns by park your money in a bank. Anna: Well in in tools and products that we had, sometimes they were you know hedge fund type investments. Michael: I got you I got no Not a CD? Anna: No, but CDs paid a lot more back then than they do today. So even then I think our CDs were probably seven or 8%. They were pretty high compared to today. Michael: That's incredible. That's incredible. Okay, so So now let's fast forward. So you found real estate, you're like, This is what I'm doing. Talk us through that first deal. And then your subsequent How did you get into small multifamily after that first deal? Anna: Yeah. So it's really interesting, kind of going back to that my, my mind was piqued that I needed to think smarter about money, and that I needed to think about real estate as something to at least explore. And I lived in Houston, Texas at the time, and my rent was really, really expensive. So as I was starting to think about am I making wise financial decisions? I thought it's really dumb that I'm blowing, you know, 1000 $1,200 a month on rent 20 years ago, why don't I buy a condo, maybe I could buy a condo, have my my total expenses be less, and then down the road, when I'm ready to buy a house, I can run out that property. So that's what I did. It wasn't that I thought real estate's gonna grow wealth, I thought real estate as a way to to live below my means a little bit and down the road to give me a little extra cash. So that's the only real thought I had about real estate when I bought that first condo. And then I thought, you know, real estate is kind of a speculative thing. I got into about 20, 2002 2003. And a lot of people were starting to buy homes and build and kind of rough areas that were re gentrifying, and they were making $100,000 in a year or two after building and I thought, oh, we'll speculate we'll buy a house where there's, you know, it needs to grow. And the neighborhood's not so great, but right across the street, there's lots of expensive homes. And I thought we built it in a year, it would go way up in value, right? Well, it didn't, didn't work, right. And then I had my baby, and I watched, I was on bed rest for three months, and I watched a lot of HGTV flip this house, it was the first year that they were coming out, like all the shows, okay? It's like, Oh, my goodness, honey, I said to my husband, I got a six figure career, but I work 40 hours, 50 hours a week, I could flip three houses and make that much money, let's flip the house. So with a three month old baby in tow, we went and got a traditional mortgage on a second house and decided let's flip this house. It has a garage apartment in the back. So we'll get a little rental income while we're flipping it. And that was our next investment before I ever even thought about really making real money with rental real estate. Michael: Okay, and how did that flip go? Anna: It didn't go well. We lost money. We made a lot of mistakes. It's not as easy as it looks on TV, right? Michael: Never is it didn't take only an hour to do? Anna: No, no, we made so many mistakes, we could we could have a whole episode just on the mistakes that we made, right. But essentially, we bought in the wrong place at the wrong time didn't know what we were doing. Way over budget way over time. It took us a year to finish it and sell it. And we lost total about $10,000 with holding costs and everything, which honestly for our first flip wasn't terrible. But my husband during that time lost a job. So we had two mortgages, a six figure school loan, a new baby and one job and he said we're never doing that again. So put real estate aside. We said okay, the way to wealth is entrepreneurship, my husband will start his own chiropractic business. So we moved to Pennsylvania, for him to start his own practice thinking that in a year or two, he'll make all this money. It was 2007 the height of the economy. And I told my company, I'm moving Can I work from home? So they gave me this like trial period. They said, well let you try it for three months. Back in oh seven, no one worked from home. So it was like I thought this is probably not going to work. We need to be really careful with our money. So what we decided to do, Michael is instead of buying a big house in Pennsylvania, after we sold our big house in Houston, we decided to house hack, I saw this little four unit apartment building right behind us practice that had that was for sale. And I thought you know what the building that my husband wants to lease in is also for sale. I could buy that building. It has three tenants and four garages. And we could buy this four unit live in one of the units and essentially the rental income would cover the expense of living and the expense of starting his practice. So I never thought about that until I came here and saw these properties for sale. And I was just thinking, what would be a wise move? Well, that would be a wise move because we'd have a little extra money. So it really started only as a protection airy move because we were relocating and starting a business. Not because at that point, I thought it was the way to Well, that took me a long time to figure that out. Michael: Oh my gosh. And so how did it go once you bought those buildings? Anna: It went really, really well. Obviously, we were living well below our means, right. But we were working on building his business and had another child at that point. And so I was working full time he was doing his business. And we learned to become landlords, we learned to update property, you know, update our units and fix toilets and answer tenant concerns and collect rents. We basically self managed everything because we didn't know any better, right? So we learned the hard way. And what happened was the next year, my husband's business did amazing. But then the end of 2008, we hit the Great Recession, I worked for AIG, who was going under who was in the news every day, I was told, look for another job, we're probably going to be sold, we're probably going to have our department, you know, gone laid off. And I lost about three quarters of my 401k the same week. And i i It was one of the hardest weeks I've ever been through. I also found out I was pregnant with baby number three the same week. So my job lost the 401k. Pregnant. And I was the only breadwinner because my husband had a business startup with lots and lots of debt. And the only thing that went well, during that time, my goal was that my tenants were still paying. And I thought, everything I've been taught and taught our clients about the stock market only works until it doesn't like the biggest companies are crashing, and they're not coming back. Right. So I learned that my trust in a job and my trust in the stock market was not well placed. And the only thing that was consistent was my tenants needed a place to live and they were still paying. And so what I did is I took the rest of my 401k I took a loan against it, and I put it as a down payment on another four unit building. Because I thought if I lose my job, I'll at least have an extra 1000 to 1200 a month coming in to cover the cost of diapers and formula a new baby. And I just bought it again as a protectionary move because I realized the power of that income that was even stable during a mass recession, the great recession. And that was the first time I had the aha moment in early oh nine, that real estate was the path I was going to take for financial wealth creation and stability. Michael: Wow. Wow. That's unbelievable. So. Anna: It was crazy. Michael: So I mean, you really saw these as as defense moves so much more than offense? Anna: Yes, at the time. Absolutely. It was just, I got to put food on the table. We've got you know, we moved to rural Pennsylvania from one of the largest cities in the world, Houston. And so I knew I couldn't just go out and find another six figure job really quickly living literally in the middle of cornfields and farmland and chocolate. So I thought I've got to create extra income so that when I get laid off from AIG, and I take a lower paying job, we'll still be able to cover the cost of his business and to, to live for a while till things got better. So, you know, I wish I could say I was smart enough to figure out 10 years before when I first heard about real estate, that it was a way to create wealth. But I just had to kind of figure that out through really, you know, the economy collapsing before I realized, wow, there's something more powerful about real estate than just something that'll cover our expenses like this is really a way to preserve wealth. Why didn't I ever learn about this? So I decided at that moment, this is the time for me to go all in to learn. And I bought one book, didn't have blogs didn't have YouTube, I bought one book, Multifamily Millions by Dave Lindell. And I'm like, Oh, my goodness, I have these three properties now, basically 12 units. And if you buy multifamily, you can force appreciation, and you can make them worth more and not only create more income, but create equity to then be able to go buy the next one. Well, I had no money, Michael, I mean, all of our money was in our stock, my stock market, and it was in these down payments, and it was in my husband's business. So I thought the only way for me to grow is I've got to fix up these units force the appreciation. So that one book was kind of like an aha at the same time. And I started just working on fixing up the unit's we had, making them worth more, and then waiting for banks to finally agree to let me take the equity to continue to buy the next one, then the next one and the next one. And once I figured that out, it was really, really quick, how wealthy we were able to become just from small multi units kind of doing the BRRRR method. Michael: So you were house hacking before it was a thing you were doing birds before it was a thing that you were revolutionary, and this is amazing. Anna: I never thought of it that way before. Yeah, makes me feel better about it taking me a decade to figure it out. Michael: Totally, totally. So were you doing that fix up, work yourself? Are you having contractors do the work? What was that like? Anna: Oh, We did everything the wrong way, looking back, but it made us we gained a lot of wisdom through the mistakes, right? We took it all on ourselves because we didn't have any other money. And so at the time, I didn't have a support group that could say you can use other people's money to buy these properties you get and there were no hard money lenders, they all went under, right during us, 08-09, like lending dried. And so I didn't know, you know, my banks wouldn't help the banks wouldn't let me have equity. They knew I worked for AIG, and was probably one week away from a job loss. Real estate was going under. So they didn't want to lend on real estate. So I couldn't find anybody to say yes, to help me take that equity. And I didn't have anyone to encourage me that you don't need the banks to grow like, hey there seller financing, when I finally figured that out. And I was able to grow through seller financing. Like it was another one of those just the next thing and the next thing, but I just didn't have a support system or anyone to challenge my thinking, to let me realize that I really could grow more real estate even though I had no money. Michael: Yeah. That's so interesting. That's so interesting. And so if we take just a step back, because you did something that I think so many investors have a really hard time wrapping their heads around, you went from single family to a four unit, almost seemingly overnight. Aside from being scared and and trying to play defense, was there a mental shift? Or how did you wrap your head around,Okay, well, I understand single families because I lived in one and I've owned one, I've tried to flip on to then buying a four unit building, that's a leap that I think a lot of people have a hard time with. How did you get there? Anna: You know, I think I didn't really have that mind block of fear of that, because everything I was doing was so new, right? It was like, we're gonna start a business because I want to be home with my kid. And the only way for me to do it is become more reliable on my husband's income than mine. So we're just gonna have to figure out how to be an entrepreneur and start a chiropractic business, right. So I was like, Okay, I'm willing to move to an estate, start a business, my husband's a great doctor, but he was not a businessman, no entrepreneurial brain in a bone in his body, he just okay, wasn't thinking about that. So I'm like, I'll have to learn how to do his marketing, I'll have to learn how to do billing and how to hire people. So I was willing to do whatever it takes, because my why was so important to me, like, I will get home with my kids, I don't care what I have to learn, I'm going to figure it out, to help him be successful. And the real estate was just a small piece of that. So it was another another one of those things, I looked at what it would cost to lease space. And it was really expensive. So I thought we're gonna have a lot of risk that we're signing a multi year lease, and 95% of businesses fail in the first couple of years. So that's not super smart. But I see that there's a building here for sale or for lease, what if we bought it since there's tenants? What would that do to our expenses? And if the business failed? Could we lease it out to someone else? So it was just those wheels turning going, how can I figure this out? How can we start a risky business with a lot of money, a lot of debt, and do it in the safest risky way we can. And that's how I figured out hey, let's buy this property. It wasn't that I thought I'm gonna move to four units from a single family it was, let's do something that's financially smart, that protects us as much as possible. So I didn't have that that block, but I was willing to do whatever it took to succeed at me getting home with my kid, that's really what it came down to. Michael: I love that. And it's something I talk about all the time with investors is have this why develop your why figure out what's going to push you through the scary times and pull you through the unknowns. Anna: Absolutely. And that that removes fear when you have at least the confidence to say I know what it is that I want. And I'm willing to move Hell or High Water to figure it out, no matter how long it takes, it removes some of the fear, right? I never could say, I can't handle a four unit or I can't handle that, or it's too big it was, this is what I need to do. I've got to stretch myself, I got to start thinking outside of the box and just figure it out until I figure it out. And I think that that that attitude is what really helped me. So if you're struggling to go from single to four unit, it's only scary in your mind because you think it's so different. But it's really not that much different. It's just four units in one building instead of buying, you know, for single family houses one at a time. So surround yourself with people listen to podcasts like this where you're hearing other people doing it, it makes it much less scary and then just do it. Michael: Yeah, that's so good. And then so when did you move into the really scary five unit plus space? Anna: So that first building was actually commercial, right? So it was like a mixed use five unit. And then I bought the four units and what I did is is after that great recession When I pulled my 401k, and I bought that third building and I read multifamily millions, then it was like, Okay, now I need a plan that if I want to replace, you know, $150,000 of income, I'm going to need to buy, you know, one four unit building every year for the next so many years, and then I'm going to need, you know, then it was I need three, four unit buildings to to really meet my number. So I just made a plan that said, I need 60 units. And when I have 60 units, I can leave my job. So how can I get 60 units. And so in my market now, I wanted to go straight for that 60 unit, or a 30 unit or a 20. But I had no money. Zero. Banks wouldn't lend to me that wasn't going to happen. So I said, Where is there opportunity. And in my market space, there were a lot of four unit buildings for sale. And so I'm like, there's all these four unit buildings for sale, and they're sitting on the market, because this was the Great Recession, nobody was buying real estate. So I thought four units is what I'm going to focus on because everyone's still buying the singles because now they're dirt cheap, richer, people are buying the bigger ones. So what can I buy? What can I afford? Well, I'll do one four unit at a time. And there's a whole bunch of them available. So I focused on the four units, because that's what there was, once I bought enough of them when I had 60 units. That's when I said Okay, at this point, I could literally walk away from my job and we didn't live on any of it. It took me five years to get 60 units. Okay, so it's 12 units a year for five years, when banks said no. And when I got to that point, I decided, you know, before I quit my job, I really want to buy a much larger apartment building and syndicate my first deal. Because if I know I can do the first one. And I've already essentially, you know, for 10 years done the four unit buildings, it's just one in one location, instead of a whole bunch of separate ones, I had the confidence I could do a bigger complex because I was already managing 60 units, it's just a matter of making make it making it all in one building with more investment dollars. Michael: So you were self managing that 60 unit portfolio? Anna: Yes, I told you I learned the hard way, right. I wouldn't tell you all to do it that way now. But I live in rural Pennsylvania, I didn't have a lot of good property management options. And I didn't think I could afford them. Because again, my goal was get home with my babies like I need to figure out how to how to keep everything inexpensive to get the income where it needs to be. And my husband was a chiropractor working three days a week. So he had two days a week that he actually enjoyed the hands on. And he's like, I enjoy doing it. So I'll handle it. So I did the money side, the people side and he did the maintenance side. Now we have staff and we have all kinds of other systems in place, right, but but at first it was just one rental at a time we'll self manage. We had some good contractors, right good trades in the area. And we'll get there. And then right before I decided to leave, that was my last goal is I'm going to syndicate my first deal. I found a 73 unit apartment building. Right in my backyard. It was off market. Right before it was listed. I met up with a seller and I bought it from him. And then I thought oh no, no, I'm gonna raise like $2 million that I don't have where am I going to find the money. So I reached out to some other people and I partnered with two people. So we ended up joint venturing it instead of syndicating it. But when I did that first joint venture, and I had an investor say yes to me for a couple million dollar investment. Because I had worked with high net worth investors for 20 years, I knew how to talk to him about this investment, versus all these other type of investments, right. So I just said, this is a great investment. And once I got that first investment done, I knew that I would be able to syndicate and scale much, much bigger deals at that point. Michael: That's incredible. And so I have to know that what came next after that 73 unit. Anna: So after the 73 unit, I gave my notice to AIG. So all of that fear that I was going to lose my job in 2008. Because I worked with really complicated private placement hedge fund wrapped investments. Bermuda offshore, they couldn't sell our division, we were too complicated. And my job was really complicated. So I had that job safety because of what I did. That kept me from ever being laid off. And so I was able to give notice and walk away at 20 years and retire. And at that point, I said to myself initially, okay, I'm just going to start doing bigger deals with my free time, right? And then I realized, all that desire that why for me to be home with my kids, and at this point, by the time I could finally retire I had four children, but they were all in school, Michael. So it's like, okay, they're all in school. What am I going to do with the rest of my time? Am I really going to sit back and you know, just go to the beach and You know, eat bon-bons, or am I gonna do something bigger? And it took me a couple couple of months to really figure out what that bigger was. I didn't need to do a deal to do a deal anymore. I had created the wealth and the financial freedom. And what was really interesting is all that time I was so focused on the cash flow. And I never had to do a PFS because I was working with a small local bank. And that's when I had to do this big syndicate this big 73 and a joint venture. And I had to go to Freddie Mac for a, you know, multifamily loan and they needed a PFS. It was the first time that I realized that I actually have a multi million dollar net worth with all these apartments that I built up, I wasn't thinking about net-worth, I was thinking about income income, and how many do I need to grow this income? When I realized that I had that net net worth and that I had the income and now I had partners who wanted to invest with me. I knew I could take my wealth growing to a much higher level by just continuing to do big deals. And so it was the first time that I decided, okay, I'm actually going to start syndicating bigger deals. I've worked with investors for 20 years, I've managed all these properties all this time. It just was kind of a natural thing for me to go into syndication, so I really didn't have any fear about it. It was really more taking time to figure out what's the best structure that I'm going to use for building multifamily syndications? Do I want to go solo? Do I want to partner with other people? Do I want to do joint ventures with a lot of different groups? So it took me some time to kind of figure that out with trial and error to see what my business model was going to be. Michael: Okay. And now you've you've landed that multifamily syndications with multiple partners is is the way to go. Anna: Yes. And for everybody, it's a little bit different, right. So some people are consummate entrepreneurs and the idea that multifamily syndications is passive is is a misnomer. That's not true. If you're really going to go into multifamily syndications, there's a lot of work you're you're just switching careers, right, you're going from whatever your W2 was to now I have a career of building a business, and being an entrepreneur with very large apartment buildings. For me, because I worked 70 to 80 hours a week for over a decade, in order to create financial freedom. Once I created financial freedom, and I knew all the sacrifices I made all those years, I said I want to grow, but not just the set for the sake of being a serial entrepreneur growing some big wealthy company, my time was more valuable, valuable to me than additional money. So I decided very strategically that I'm going to grow my business really strategically, from nine to three every day. And the moment my kids come through the door, I'm not working. So however many deals and how whatever model I need to figure out how can I continue to scale, but do it five, four to five days a week, nine to three, that's what I'm going to do. And so what I've decided for me, because my time left with my kids is so important. I have eight years before my baby's out of the house, I've decided to really joint venture with a couple of other really strong operators, I co asset, manage our deals, but I'm not responsible for everything. Like in the beginning with our own properties, we did everything. Now I get to focus on what I'm really good at working with investors and asset management. And so I co-GP with a couple of other really good operators. Rather than starting my own company, where I'm hiring a director of acquisitions and hiring a marketing person and investor relations. I just don't want to grow the huge corporate company, because my time is so valuable to me. Michael: Yeah. And I think that's really kind of reflected in your company's name. Right? Anna: Yes. Greater Purpose Capital. Yeah, love it. And part of that, too. I'll just touch on that for just a second, if you don't mind, just because you just brought that up. Michael: Yeah. Anna: I grew up in Section Eight apartments, right. So Section Eight housing, I had nobody in my family with wealth or that knew anything about money. And I still have family that are in Section Eight housing. I have tenants that are in Section Eight housing. And so one of my big why's what I realized is once my once I was retired, right, I no longer say I'm retire, but I'm financially free, right and doing what I love with real estate. I knew that I wanted to make a bigger impact with what I do. So part of that is really helping and educating other investors that want to invest passively how they can grow their wealth with passive wealth through syndications. But the bigger piece is that I really want to impact our residents while we're growing wealth. So if I can teach our residents financial principles and teach them financial literacy, so that they can move out of my apartments one day and become financially independent and grow and also give them hope that you can grow up in poverty and you can still change the trajectory of your future by making wise financial decisions. That's like a huge part of my why now so I spend a lot of my time working on materials to impact my residents. Michael: Okay, that's so amazing. Anna, thank you for the work that you do, because I couldn't agree more that education is really the key key component here that's definitely lacking, I think, throughout our education system. Anna: Absolutely. And even through, you know, look at me, I mean, I got my degree. And I was at Bank of America and a private bank, going through a multi year financial advisory training, and I still didn't even learn how to budget my own checkbook, and and develop the wealth. We can tell lots of people how to grow wealth once you have it. But there's very little financial education to show people, what are different ways you can actually truly create wealth. And really, there's no greater way than rental property, real estate. Michael: That's so good. You're also quite humble and that you have not mentioned that you are an Amazon Best Seller as an author. I would love if you could share a little bit about your book with our listeners. Anna: Sure. Thank you so much. So I have been actually in four books that are a compilation of authors like Chicken Soup for the Soul. One of them I'm really proud of is called The Only Woman in the room. And it's a bunch of women, real estate investors who in oftentimes, where we're going, we speak at these conferences, we speak if at the events and we're the only woman in the room, we're the only woman on stage. So it's really an inspirational book, I would encourage your listeners to get especially if you're a woman, or if you're married to someone that's a woman that really wants to be involved in real estate. It's highly motivational. And then the last book that I did is actually called Bringing Value and Leaving a Legacy and Finding Solutions. And so it's all about that, that look, building your business for the purpose of leaving a legacy and creating a greater impact on the world with what you're doing. Michael: I love that. And those are available on Amazon. Is there another website where folks can check them out? Anna: Yes, you can find them on my website at REI mom calm. Michael: Reimom.com. I love it. I love it. Anna: Thank you. Michael: And and Greater Purpose Capital is that have its own specific website as well. Anna: It does. So Greaterpurposecapital.com is where you can find syndications, if you want to invest passively if you're an accredited investor, and apartment deals where we really go into make a meaningful impact on the lives of our residents. Michael: So good, so good. And I want to spend just the last couple of minutes here picking your brain around why you think multifamily is such a powerful asset class as compared to single family or small multifamily? Anna: Sure. You know, I think the biggest thing with multifamily is it's really shown resilience over many different market cycles for investors, whether you're looking to grow wealth, whether you're looking to create income, or whether you're looking for a safe place to park your money. While we can't say investments are safe per se, multifamily has often been a preservation of capital play during really rough times uncertain times, kind of like today, right. And so it's why a lot of institutional investors come in and swoop up and pay top dollar for multifamily apartments because they're very resilient to economic downturns. So, you know, while they provide amazing tax benefits on top of income and growth, they typically don't lose value, because there's ways for us to force appreciation. So even if the market softens a little in terms of what they'll pay for every dollar of income. If there's inflation, I can usually raise rents, right. And so they're assets that will continue to go up in value during times like this of inflation, where my rents will continue to go up in value. And even if I can't sell it, because it's come down in value a little bit, I can usually live on that cash flow for quite some time. And the cash flow isn't tremendously impacted during downturns. So for me, it's that it's that really recession resilient investment, as long as you're buying the right type of multifamily in the right markets, right. So if they're not all the same, just like single family house, and the million dollar range is not the same as a single family house in the $50,000 range. You've got to be making sure that you're in markets that are really resilient with population growth and job growth and wage growth and job diversity and low crimes and great schools. So if you invest in those kind of really strong markets, you'll make significantly more money in multifamily than you will in single family and it's not transactional, you don't have to just buy and sell and buy and sell and buy and sell. You can buy one four unit building or 1 20 unit building or 100 unit building. And you can make a lot of money on it for a really long time and bank on that income for 510 20 years rather than having to you know flip and repurchase over and over and over again. Michael: That's great. That's great. I think so many of our listeners are mostly single family investors some small multifamily and then some some mid sized to large multifamily. What are some Some tips, tricks, tidbits of advice you can give folks who are thinking about getting into multifamily, where they can hopefully avoid some of the stumbling blocks that you've maybe encountered or you've seen others encounter? Anna: Absolutely, it's such a good question, you know, I would say first is start small and start where you are. So if you're in a market that has properties that you can afford that are profitable, start there, right? If you're not, then look for a market where you really have some, some alignment with some other investor that's in that market that knows it really, really well. So don't try to go into a whole new market on your own by yourself, if you don't have experience with larger multifamily, buy a small property and learn on a small scale. Because while there's a lot of and I speak at some of these events, right, so I'm not knocking it, but there's a lot of events and there's a lot of books that say go straight to syndication, right. And the reality is, there's a lot of people that want to go straight to syndication, and now they're taking on millions of dollars of investor money, with very little experience. And when we have economic downturns like the Great Recession, like the pandemic, like where we are now, you better have made a whole lot of mistakes that made you really wise on the small mistakes that will keep you from losing your shirt and your investors millions of dollars, during times of uncertainty. So starting small gives us wisdom, it lets us fail small, so that we can fail up into the next thing and the next thing. So don't feel like if you're not ready or you don't feel that you have the competence or the scale or the money to jump straight into syndication, that you're doing yourself a disservice by starting small, starting small can actually be the wisest, safest way for you to do it. And if you own the property yourself, 100% you can depend on that income for a much longer period of time than you can in a syndication. Michael: That's so, so good. I once heard the phrase, I never trust anyone without a limp. And similar to what you're saying, if you've never done it before, you don't have the experience or the wisdom to fall back on when things go south. Anna: Absolutely. And things can go south pretty quickly. You know, there's a lot to learn. So don't go it alone. That's the other thing is we started alone and because I did everything myself and I didn't even have a network of other people to bounce things off of. I made a lot of mistakes. You know, that took me a lot longer. So buy your own properties are buy with a partner but but listen to podcasts, you know, list, fill your mind with information, so that you can learn things without having to learn it by making the mistake. Michael: Yeah. Oh, that's so good. That's so good. Anna this was so wonderful is the best way for people to learn more about you to get in touch with you via the websites that you mentioned previously. Anna: Absolutely. You can also follow me on social on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. I'm Anna “ReiMom” Kelley. Michael: Awesome. Fantastic. Well, thank you again for hanging out with me. This has been so wonderful. We'll definitely be in touch soon. I can't wait to see where you head next. Anna: Thank you so much. It's been my pleasure. Take care. Michael: Alrighty, everybody that was our episode a big big big thank you to Anna for coming on the show. I learned a ton.

What is holding you back from a fulfilled and successful life?For some, it's as simple as a lack of tools and resources, but it's often a lot deeper than that. Most of the time, it comes down to your programming - a strong belief system that was instilled in you by your upbringing and your environment.In order for you to live a life of success and fulfillment, you need to audit the belief systems that were instilled in you and upgrade them to something more empowering. It was a decade ago that Tracy O'Malley hit rock bottom. She was faced with deaths, divorce, addiction, and a belief system that was given to her by her father. Tracy decided it was time for a clean slate. She cut ties with her career and all negative people who were holding her back, dove headfirst into a network marketing & leadership opportunity, and went from $0 to $1 Million in income in only two short years. Since then, Tracy has gone on to build a multi-million dollar organization and has coached thousands of people in leadership and communication.
