The CarrotCast Podcast for Real Estate Investors & Agents

I came across this quote scrolling through instagram the other day and it inspired me to record a podcast on a few of the things I’ve learned over the last few years. I go over some of the most important concepts I’ve learned over the years - what I’ve learned about money and happiness after making my first million to staying on track with habits as a busy leader of a fast-growing team. Listen in. https://carrot.com/blog/steps-to-success/

After 15 years wholesaling properties, Alex made a decision to step away from his business. As his coach said to him, not pursuing your talents, is robbing the future of what you are able to offer. It is important to share your gifts with the people following in our footsteps. That said, Alex is now focusing on the things that bring him joy and energy. Right now, those things are Ascent and his podcast, Flip Empire, where he dives into all things related to real estate investment.

We brought on the real estate industry’s cold calling guru, Beau Hollis from Louisville, Kentucky to teach us how he closes 1 deal for every 150 cold calls made, when most investors need about 600 calls to get a deal! Yes, he’s closing 8-10 deals per month, mostly cold calling! Listen in now to get his best secrets and his simple foolproof cold calling script that will cut your time on the phone in half so you can make some dang money and get back to spending your time doing the things that you love… which is probably not making cold calls.

About a year ago, we connected with a new member here at Carrot, and he's one of the most passionate, action-taking, just hustlers, that you'll find out there.

I was so impressed. He joined Carrot a week or two later. He was up here in Oregon at our Carrot HQ for the very first CarrotCamp, and it was just really, really amazing, and I was crazy impressed seeing what he had been doing in Dallas, Texas, as a solo operator, using some crazy, crazy, creative marketing.

You're going to be hearing about some of that marketing here on this call, but that's not the end story.

When I was down in Dallas a few months ago, I met him and his two business partners, and since the time I'd first met him, about a year ago, he formed a partnership with two other local investors.

Since then, they've really scaled up their business in a big way, and they've done it by carving out a niche to where they can close deals that most other investors in their market can't.

They have other investors sending them deals all the time that say, "Hey, we can't figure out how to make this a deal," and they make them deals.

There's one deal that he talks about on this podcast where the person was going through foreclosure. He was able to help save the house. They stayed in the house, and he gave them money, $20 grand or whatever it was, for her daughter's wedding, and not just that, they're going to end up making a really, really, really big payday at the end of this because they are creative with their deals.

That was the deal that everyone else looked at and said, "There's nothing here," and he turned it into a $30,000+ payday and helped the seller in a big way, and that seller's just eternally grateful.

I want to introduce you to Tang Nguyen and his business partners with The Odd Brothers, Fred and Eric. Two amazing dudes, as well, and listen to their story. Be inspired by how they saw collaboration, not competition, with other people in their market. See how they're being creative and thinking about deals in different ways.

When entering a tighter market, you need to be more creative with your deals. You need to find ways to collaborate with other investors, not be competing with them, and shift that mindset, you all.

This is a collaborative industry. When you look at your competition as competition and not as a collaboration, that's when it gets really, really hard. That's when you're out on an island by yourself.

They get emails and text messages every single day from local wholesalers and flippers who say, "Man, I've got this deal. I don't know how to structure it. Is this something you can handle?"

Introducing Tang Nguyen, Fred, and Eric from The Odd Brothers, and an amazing, amazing story. Dive in.

I’m 3 weeks into sabbatical at the time of recording this and wanted to share something that’s really impacted me recently. Magical moments. It’s been so long since I disconnected from work like this that it’s given me the perspective to see what I’ve been missing out on. And it’s giving me the creativity and wisdom to figure out how to create these moments more often and get the most out of them. Tune in to hear how you can make the most of the time you were given, whether you are caught in the grind or on vacation yourself.
