How to Get What You REALLY Want in Your Life & Biz

In the first module of our full Private Money Blueprint System, we help you build a rock solid foundation in your REI biz first… so that you’re ready to take the market by storm.

Without this “foundation”,  all the private money and real estate investing techniques and strategies in the world won’t help you.

Part of this process includes planning exactly what you want in the 8 core areas of your life, taking what we call, The REI Litmus Test (which tells you which investment strategies are best for you based on what you want in each core area), creating your biz plan, among other things.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn what those 8 core areas are, why it’s vitally important to know what you want in these areas, and I’m going to share tips to put your new goals on steroids (so you achieve them faster and easier)…

8 Core Areas in Life – How to Get What You REALLY Want

When you know where you’re headed (in other words, when you know exactly what you want), you can start taking educated action towards it.

Why You MUST Decide (and Plan) What You Want in Life & Biz

Think about it…

You want to go on a vacation. What’s the first thing you need to do?

Decide where you want to go.

ONLY then, can you move forward with the steps necessary to make that vacation happen.

Once you know where you’re going, you can plan your travel, your accommodations, what you’re gonna do once you get there, take the needed time off from your job, etc.

4 “Private Money Getting” Trainings – We’re always out to provide better and better value to our members. Well… this time around we packaged 4 trainings and resources out of our Private Money Monthly program (that people pay $67 or more for every day)… and you can get them today for pennies on the dollar just for taking a test drive in our Private Money Monthly program. These 4 trainings are valued at almost $600!  Check it out while it’s still up <<


Make sense?

Well, it’s the same way with anything, and I mean ANYTHING you want in life.

If you don’t plan what you want in every core area of your life, you’ll never get it.

Action Step: Set aside 1 hour right now… write down (this is key… you absolutely MUST write down them down) 3 goals in each core area. It’s best to have both short term and long term goals.

How to Put Your Goals on Steroids

Here are a few tips that will put you on the fast track to getting what you want in your life and in your REI biz…

1) Stated in the Positive

Your goals should be what you want, NOT what you don’t want.

2) Personal

You have to want it. Not what your parents want for you or your spouse or friends. For the goal to be effective, it must be something that you want.

3) Specific (Result & Time Frame)

This is critical. the result must be quantifiable, and a time frame established. Otherwise, it’s simply a wish, a hope.

Here’s an example of a goal that meets each of the three characteristics thus far (assuming you want private money for your deals):

It is X-Date, and I closed my first deal with a $125,000 private money loan.

4) Experience it in Your Mind

If you can’t see it in your mind, you won’t see it in reality. That’s how the world works.

How do you think the property you live in was built?

… it was first an idea in someone’s mind.

Ask yourself, “What do I see, hear, and feel having accomplished my goals?

What do you look like? How do you feel? What are you saying to yourself? What are others saying to you?

The more you experience your goals as achieved in your mind, the faster you’ll achieve them in your life.

Leave your thoughts, questions, and comments below.  I’d love to hear from ya 🙂

How To Stay SEC Compliant When Getting Private Money

In the end, the SEC wants a few things and has one single mission.

The SEC Mission (in my words… not theirs): To protect the end consumer/investor from fraud, deceit, and dishonest investment practices .

In a moment, I’m going to share a few tips to help you stay SEC compliant when getting private money… BUT, this is not to be taken as legal advice and is no substitute for legal advice.

Treat your real estate investing business like a true *business* and get your legal bases covered… have an attorney on your team advise you based on your specific business model and the area you’re doing business.

Also, keep in mind that the SEC is nothing to be scared of… some real estate investors use the SEC as an “excuse” for not getting private money… and there’s no need for that.

Simply get educated and get good legal advice.

3 SEC Compliance Tips | Private Money

1) Only present investment opportunities to people who you have a relationship with (i.e. – get to know your prospects before you start offering your private lending opportunities).

This makes complete sense and truthfully… is in your best interest to do so anyway.

A private lender is essentially “going into business” with you on a particular deal. You want to make sure you get to know them, and vice versa before they put up their hard earned money with you and your company.

2) Be honest and upfront with the way you represent yourself, your company, and your investments… and fully disclose all risks and details of what your private lenders will be investing in.

This boils down to basic…

“Do unto others as you’d like others to do unto you”.

Some people feel like they need to hide certain bits of information from their private lenders about the risks of a deal.


Your lenders will appreciate you for being upfront and the SEC requires that you fully disclose any risks of the investment, what you’re going to do with the funds, and the details of the investment.

3) Protect the investor (your private lender) at all costs… including that the investor has the financial means to invest their funds in these types of “non-traditional” investments.

So for example…

… don’t bring in a private lender who makes $30,000 and is investing their last $20,000 with you.

Make sense?

Alrighty, that does it for today…

How to Structure Private Money Loans

There are two primary ways that private money loans are structured… as an equity or debt investment.

Private Money Loan Structuring – Equity vs. Debt

With an equity investment, you’re giving your private lender a portion of the ownership in the property. What portion? It’s up to you. But, I’ll give you an example from one of our students below.

With a debt investment, your private lender is paid a specific rate of return. This is how I’ve structured most of my private money loans. Why? Because most of the time, it’s more profitable. And by retaining 100% ownership of the property, you remain in full control.

Neither structure is right or wrong… just different.

How PMBP Student Justin Wilmot Structures Loans

Justin Wilmot, one of our students kicking serious butt in the Florida market (he’s done more than a dozen deals in the last year since getting started), structures all of his deals straight 50/50 partnership with his private lender.

So, he chose the equity investment route.

… and he never has to worry about financing again.

He brought in one private lender with deep pockets and started doing deal splits. It worked out great for him and his lender so they decided to go into business together.

With cash to close deals at Justin’s disposal, he simply focuses on finding and closing great deals.

How PMBP Student Rob Russell Structures Loans

Rob Russell, one of our Platinum students in Oregon, structures his loans completely different. He chose to go the debt route.

He offers anywhere from 5 to 10% interest per annum and consistently gets private money on the low end of that range. Whoohoo!

Rob shared a cool story about a “Loaded Dentist” recently who contacted him through his PMBP website. After chatting a couple times and meeting, he had a commitment for private money at 7% per annum… no fees, no points, no hoops, no B.S.

Also, you may be wondering…

How Does Your Private Money Lender Get Paid?

It’s negotiable.

Do whatever makes sense based on your deals, your business model.

If you’re doing long term private loans (anything over a year), maybe you distribute the interest earned or profits over time… through monthly, quarterly, or annual distributions.

For short term loans, you could let it accrue until you cash it out.

It’s up to you to determine.

Private Money Mastermind Call – Avoid These Costly Mistakes

I’ve learned some tough lessons from mistakes I’ve made investing in real estate. Mistakes that cost me big time financially, mentally, and emotionally.

It’s important to keep in mind that everyone, EVERYONE makes mistakes… doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to real estate investing or if you’re a seasoned veteran.

BUT, it’s how you respond, how you react, what you learn… that makes the difference.

In real estate investing, when things go south, it can mean broken agreements, payments falling behind, liens, judgments, foreclosure, bankruptcy.

You’re undoubtedly heard many stories of hardship over the last few years… from huge multi-million and billion dollar real estate investment companies, developers, banks, mortgage companies…

… but regardless of the adversity faced, there are KEY lessons to be learned and leveraged into your next deal, your business, your personal life.

In this month’s edition of the PMM Mastermind Call, I go in-depth explaining the BIG mistakes I’ve made, how I’ve responded, how I’ve weathered the storm…

You’re about to learn:

  • How I created a cash flow nightmare
  • How $847K in cash disappeared in only 3 months
  • The hardest and smartest thing I’ve ever done in business
  • How I successfully renegotiated millions of dollars in private money loans
  • 7 key lessons learned from the REI trenches
  • and more

You know, most people are scared to admit their mistakes. And I used to be the same way. But, I realized the huge benefits that I can provide other investors by opening up and sharing the tough times I’ve been through.

My hope is that you can experience these through me, learn from them, and avoid them in your own business and life.

This is a very personal tutorial… I hope you enjoy.

(it may take it a min for the video to load… please be patient 🙂

Take these lessons and apply them in your business, your life.

… and if you’re going through difficult times yourself, let me know. I’m here to help in any way I can.

I mean it.
