Is FEAR Getting In The Way Of Your Success?

Hey, did you know that you’re only born with two fears?

The fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned… therefore can be unlearned.

Is FEAR getting in the way of your success?

  • fear of contacting a seller
  • fear of looking like a newbie
  • fear of making an offer
  • fear of rejection
  • fear of paying too much for a property
  • fear of underestimating the rehab costs
  • fear of overestimating the ARV
  • fear of _______________ (fill in the blank)
  • (and the biggie!) fear of failure

Well, I came across this video where Jonathan Fields shows you how to disempower your fears

… once and for all.

The entire lesson is distilled down to 3 simple but powerful questions.

This is life changing stuff.

Let me know what you think in the comment area below.

“Ghetto” Marketing… Why Does Ugly Looking Marketing Work?

Hola, hows your week!?

Alrighty, a big debate across people is… “pretty marketing” vs. “ugly marketing”.

Now, I’m not talking about “ugly” tactics or non-ethical stuff… I’m talking about ugly looking marketing materials… i.e. – stuff that doesn’t look pretty 🙂

Well, I can attest personally that “ugly – ghetto” looking marketing tends to work pretty darn well in many cases… and in this video I’ll dive in and show you 2 actual “ugly” postcards for finding absentee owners, and 1 “ugly” letter for absentee owners.  In it, take notes on the 2 distinctions that make “ugly” marketing work… then test ‘er out in your business to see if you get better results 🙂  (push play to start the video. Its about 20 mins… but you’ll enjoy ‘er)

Link mentioned in video:

* As I mention in the video, all of those marketing templates, post cards, letters, campaigns, private lender leads, free websites, the lead flow organizer, comp checker, “offerbot”, and everything else are in the new Freedomsoft 3 software… and they dropped the upfront fee for the software (which was $997 – $2997)… now you just pay the monthly maintenance fee of as little as $97/mo for everything… w/ no contracts.  Really solid program which is why I showed you those marketing pieces inside the software… I love their style and know they work.  Check ‘er out 🙂

Oh, as a bonus that I don’t mention… if you do register for a Freesomsoft 3 account through our “affiliate” links on this page… they give us credit and a small commission for making the referral. However, we want to pass along the goodness and offer you one of two programs for free:


PMOD (Private Money On Demand) – Sells for $97 every day… here’s the details on PMOD:


CSI (Certified Strategic Investor) – Sells for $97 every day… here’s the details of CSI:

You can choose one of those programs above for FREE if you register through Freedomsoft 3 through our links on this page.

Have a great week and weekend!

– Trevor

PS – As you know, there are some great resources out there and some really crappy resources. We pass along the ones to you that we truly feel are worthy and can help certain people either drastically automate things, cut the learning curve, and have better long-term results in life and real estate. Freedomsoft is one of those resources… if you’re a wholesaler its worth looking into.

PPS – In 2010 when Freedomsoft released their 2nd version of the software… we filmed an updated video review of their system. If you want to check it out, here’s the link on our blog: Since then they’ve added private lender leads, more websites, the “offerbot”, and more… but, that’ll give you a good idea of the overall look/feel and comprehensiveness of the software. Enjoy 🙂

Sage Advice From One of My Personal Mentors

I have a special tutorial for you today… and it’s not directly related to real estate investing or private money but is directly related to your success in business and in life.

Have you heard of Jim Rohn before?

If not, I’m pleased to introduce a man who has made a profound impact on my life (both personally and professionally), a man referred to as America’s Foremost Business Philosopher – Mr. Jim Rohn.

Unfortunately I never met him in person. I always wanted to go to one of his seminars but waited too long as Mr. Rohn passed away December 5th, 2009.

But, his legacy lives on through his books, videos, CDs, and all of his educational training programs.

Below is a video that I found on YouTube where he covers some incredible insights he learned from his mentor, Earl Shoaff.

The video is 7 min long… make sure to listen close from the 3 min mark through the end.

Enjoy these simple yet powerful lessons…

NOTE: original video was taken down from YouTube due to copyright issues… so I found another to take it’s place… well actual 3 others 🙂

This is a series called “How to Have Your Best Year Ever”… great stuff too!

I would love to hear what’s on your mind… leave your thoughts, comments, and questions below.

Alrighty, we’ve gotten a couple dozen emails from PMBP subscribers and customers asking us for our candid and honest opinion of the Freedomsoft software thats “launching” this week… and their “new” version they’re calling Freedomsoft Reloaded.

So, we got a demo account from the Freedom Soft guys and tonight we’re going to do a full walk-through, demo, and review of the new Freedomsoft Reloaded version.

In January they launched Freedomsoft and we really enjoyed the software and you can see our full Freedomsoft Review here on our blog of the 1.0 version of the software… and, tonight we’ll do a full-review of…

  • What is new in the “reloaded” version of the system (they’ve added new software features and training)
  • What the new version of Freedomsoft software has added for helping to get private money
  • What we feel the Freedomsoft guys still have kinda missed the boat on (this thing ISN’T a magic bullet by any stretch of the imagination)
  • What we like about the “reloaded” version
  • What we don’t like about the “reloaded” version
  • … and some cool bonuses that will help you A TON if you decide Freedom Soft is right for you

That’ll give you plenty of time to see inside the software for yourself to see if its something that can help you grow your business and automate some things in your wholesaling business… or if its something that you should pass up on and save your money on.  Cool?

Freedomsoft Reloaded Review And Resources For Ya

Okay, here’s where we’re going to put up our updated demo video and review of the software tomorrow (Tuesday). So, check back here tomorrow so you can see whats inside the software with your own eyes.  We’re not going to try to “sell” you into buying anything… just showing you whats in it with as an unbiased look as we can possibly give you.

5 Minutes To Awesomefy Your Life

Filed under Cool Stuff

We have all heard of, and some of us even read, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. How many of us actually put what we know into practice? Sure, as people trying to make a living, we have to be proactive (Habit 1). I mean do you think the money is just going to knock on your door? Of course not. So we go out there and work and build relationships and become successful. But what about the days you wake up and just don’t feel like it? Ever have one of those days?

When being proactive seems like the most difficult task you can wrap your brain around, then is the time to refocus. Focus on the end. “The end? Well, that seems kinda tragic,” you say.  But no, not that end–the end result. When we begin our days focusing on our goals, we begin the day in a positive motivated mindset. “Begin with the end in mind,” is the second Habit and the focus of the following video.


I really think making focusing on your goals a priority each  day will in turn, make you more successful. Is that too bold a statement? Maybe. But probably not, and wouldn’t you like to find out? My challenge to you is this: take 5 minutes each morning for one week to focus on your goals before starting your day. And then do it again the next week…and again. I can’t wait to hear about how you’re more motivated and in turn more successful!


SIMs 2.0 Greg Clement Review and Full OpenRoad3 Demo – Bonus Package and Discount

Alrighty, a bunch of our readers asked about the SIMs system and wanted a clearer explanation of what the software really does. So… we decided to do a full and detailed video walkthrough of the OpenRoad3 software that comes with SIMs.

With the SIMs system, its 2 parts.

1. The training on how to use the internet to put your lead generation into overdrive (great training, best I’ve seen on generating leads online for a REI biz)
2. The OpenRoad3 software that I walk you through below that automates pretty much all of the actions you need to take to generate leads online and serves as your online
database, CRM, and lead generating software.

Anyhow, check out the video walkthrough below… it’ll show you what I like, what I hate, what elements are cool, what SIMs lacks, and how to fill those gaps that SIMs has.

Enjoy 🙂

SIMs 2.0 & Open Road3 Full Walkthrough Review

The SIMs Open Road3 software review is extremely detailed… I walk you through EVERY aspect of the software (but I did forget to show how the software will analyze your deals for you, blast your properties to social media sites, fax your offers for you, and other features I forgot to go over… ) in the video demo below and it’s a solid 50 minutes long.  But, if you’d rather hop on a webinar Wednesday evening to have the SIMs guys give you a full demo of the software live… here’s a link to go sign up for that live demo webinar thats Wednesday at 6pm PST (9pm EST).  No hype… just a full demo of what SIMs does.

>> Here’s our link to invest in SIMs if you feel its right for you <<

Our SIMs 2.0 Bonuses If You Feel Its Right For You

Okay, like I said above… there are 2 SIMs levels depending on how much “done for you” hand holding you need right now to implement your online marketing strategy.  The “done for you” version of SIMs is called their SIMs Partnership Program… which isn’t cheap at all… but is far less expensive than hiring outside firms to set up your squeeze pages, websites, social media marketing campaigns, etc.  The SIMs guys do that for you with this package.
If you invest in the SIMs Partnership Program (the “done for you version”) – First 10 6 Only:
  1. A $100 cash credit at our print shop toward your first direct mail campaign
  2. We’ll give you access to our direct mail print shop and our negotiated discount so you can use the direct mail pieces in SIMs cost effectively
    ($300 value)
  3. We’ll find private lenders FOR YOU in your local area within 45 days after you invest in the SIMs Partnership program
    ($3,000 value)

    We’ll have my team search your area through the public records for actual private lenders who are in your city right now, we’ll give you their names, addresses, how much money they’ve lent, etc. so you can then connect with them and build a relationship with them to be your lender.
  4. I’ll do a 1 on 1 30 minute personal “internet marketing” advanced strategy session with you to put together a solid plan to help you generate the most amount of leads possible for your REI biz using the SIMs technology and system
    ($500 real world value)
  5. You’ll get our never before released 7 step “Private money getting” email autoresponder sequence that you can plug into your SIMs autoresponder to convert your private lender prospects to private lenders.  The sequence is specifically designed to build instant credibility for you and private lending and professionally written to guide the private lending prospect through a specific sequence that maximizes conversion.
    ($1,500 real value)
Total Real Value:  $5,400
Here’s our affiliate tracking link you need to use to get those bonuses above for the SIMs partnership program.

>> You Must Use This Link To Get The Above Bonuses For Investing In the SIMs Partnership Program – First 10 Only <<

If you decide to invest in the regular SIMs program, you’ll get everything above except for…
– The $100 cash credit to our direct mail company
– 1 on 1 30 minute consultation
Those two take too much of my time and money compared to the commission the SIMs folks kick back.

How To Get Your SIMs 2.0 and Open Road3 Software Bonus

Okay, like I said in the video review… SIMs is a great piece of software and training and a great tool for those who don’t have the time or expertise to set up your own online marketing campaigns.  I myself don’t need SIMs, I already have the knowledge and team setting this stuff up for me… but I realize not everyone has that luxury.  If you’ve decided SIMs is right for you to help you automate and grow your business so you can focus more time on having fun, making money, and spending time with your family… and you want that missing link that SIMs doesn’t provide (the private money… they give you a squeeze page but not much on the marketing)…

… now all you have to do is choose which package is right for you.

If you want the true turn key solution… where we actually find the private lenders for you… go w/ the SIMs Partnership Program (which they are saying will likely fill up Wednesday because they have actual manual labor on their end to implement everything for you).  It’s not cheap… but, that one bonus where we’ll find YOU private lenders IN YOUR AREA FOR YOU and give you our 7 part “Private lender magnate” autoresponder email sequence to plug into your SIMs sytem is worth 10x the investment in SIMs alone… not to mention the other bonuses and the actual SIMs software itself.

So, here’s what you need to do:

  1. SIMs opened up Tuesday 7/13 at 12:00 PST EST (9:07 am PST)
  2. Use our affiliate tracking link below so they can track you as our customer (if you don’t use the links on this page you WON’T get our bonus.
  3. Select a SIMs package and buy it
  4. Send your receipt to support [at] privatemoneyblueprint [dot] com and we’ll put you immediately into the bonus group for whatever SIMs package you choose
  5. We’ll get a hold of you with the details on the bonus (remember, only the first 10 get the “done for you” Partner bonus. As long as this message is still up… there are still spots left. When all 10 spots are filled we’ll immediately put up a “sold out” note on this page).

Just Released: “Finance Prison Blues” by Patty Cash

Alrighty, you’ve gotta check this out guys and gals. I’ve just released our Getting the Money Bootcamp official theme song … LOL … watch this …

Sing along with me. Here are the lyrics:

I hear a bootcamp’s comin’
It’s right around the bend,
And I ain’t closed a deal,
Since, I don’t know when,
I’m stuck in finance prison,
And time keeps draggin’ on,
But that bootcamp is a-rollin’,
On down to Denver CO.

When I was just a newbie,
My mentor told me, “Son,
You gotta have the money,
Can’t play without the funds,
But I lost a deal in Reno,
to an all-cash guy.
when I saw him make a killin’
I hang my head down and cry.

I bet there’s some folks lendin’,
If the deals up to par,
They’re probably all around us,
If you just know who they are,
Hey Patrick, Susan, Trevor,
Please help me get free,
Because those people keep a-lendin’,
And that’s what tortures me.

Well, if they freed me from finance prison,
If that real estate was mine,
I bet I’d move out over a little,
Farther down the line,
Far from Finance Prison,
That’s where I want to stay,
And I’d let that Getting the Money Bootcamp,
Blow my Blues away.

Hope to see ya this June 4th – 6th in Denver for our Getting the Money Bootcamp.

Patty Cash

How Hungry Are You?

So… how hungry are you?

I’m not talking about getting up and grabbing an ice cream bar or munching on dinner…

… I’m talking about your hunger for a better life.

Too many people I talk to always say how “bad” they want out of their rut and how “bad” they *want* to live a better life.

But, when it all comes down to it… *most* people talk a good game but deep down inside… like in the pit of your being… aren’t all that hungry quite yet.

Anyhow, my buddy Brendan (he lives up here in Oregon… not to far from me) shot a really great video about becoming successful and becoming THE expert in YOUR area.  Whether it’s real estate… or whether you’re really passionate about something else… if you really want to be successful you’ve got to check out this video.

Great stuff Brendan!

If you’re really hungy about making it in real estate… here’s a little test for you tonight.

Are you struggling to get money to close on your deals?


Are you really hungry to get your deals closed (even apartment buildings) without using your own money or credit?

Well… join us for an encore of our “7 Ways To Make Money As A Multi-Family Syndicator and Advanced “Private Money Getting” for 2010″ web workshop w/ the full PMBP team TONIGHT (wednesday) at 6pm PST:

Awesome Words To Live By… Seriously Worth A Watch

“I’ve never considered myself as particularly talented. Where I excel is my ridiculous work ethic.  While the other guys sleepin’… I’m working”

That quote right there is one of my favorites in his video… and that’s one thing I’ve found out over the last 4 or so years.

Find what you love to do… and work harder than everyone else… put out everything you’ve got… realize we’ve only got one go around on Earth… don’t waste your limited time here… make a difference… leave the world in a better place than you found it… and and do all you can to help make a difference for other people and for yourself.

Enjoy the week!

– T & P

P.S. – A couple more quotes from the video… “Don’t create a plan B… it’ll only distract you from plan A“.  “Being realistic is the most commonly travelled road to mediocrity“.
