The CarrotCast Podcast for Real Estate Investors & Agents (business)

I always get excited when I get to do these types of CarrotCasts when I bring on a client of ours who has a great, great story. And the client that I'm bringing on today is Brian Rockwell. This CarrotCast is pretty compelling and hopefully, it's going to speak to everyone about patience and swift and focused execution when you decide to make things happen.

He didn't use the excuses of, "There's way too much competition." He didn't use the excuses of, "I already see Carrot sites everywhere." He didn't use any excuses of "I've never done a deal." He went out there, executed according to what we laid out, our plan for him. He executed it. He carved out time to study. He carved out time to implement, he carved out a budget, and he did $80,000 in wholesale fees in March. He did another $50 to $60,000 in April, and he's already on track to do amazingly well again at the time we recorded this in June. 

You're also going to be able to learn how he's executed like mad as a newer investor, not having all the advantages that you do with experience and credibility and how he went after and executed with one marketing plan, on one way of getting clients now with building up momentum over the long term with another way of getting clients, and how he's turning those into profits.

He eliminated emotion from his decision by setting a solid marketing budget that is 100% based off of data and math. Magically that turned into amazing results for him.

You're going to love his story, how he went from junior high teacher and baseball coach, and a 12-year journey on starting being a real estate investor from thinking about it to taking the action on it.

He took action, and within three months he's doing $80,000 a month in revenue, and you're going to hear how he did it.

Real estate is one of the least trusted industries-- why is that?

Now ask yourself... "How many of your last deals would you feel like following up with and taking to dinner or grabbing a drink, those clients?" If you're like most wholesalers and flippers, your business is about the numbers. Investors treat it as a one-and-done too often. Most don't believe they can be tight with the client after the deal has closed.

I'm returning from one of, if not, the Nation's top Mastermind events for real estate wholesalers and flippers called Collective Genius. These guys are big time. 500-600 flips per year and some with over 4000 multi-family units.

What's one of the main differences between the one-and-done investor and one that flips 500 properties per year? The willingness to build and continue a relationship- after the transaction.

What can you do to change the churn and burn mindset of your clients? Find out. On this episode of the CarrotCast, Trevor dives into what he learned at the Collective Genius Mastermind, showing clients that you care and that they're not just another comma.

Have gratitude for everything and build humanity back into business!

Every business should have 1 or 2 key metrics that are your “north star” at any given time. Right now ours is Net Promoter Score… because it is the simplest way to gauge overall happiness of our clients. In the spirit of transparency, we recently had 2 of the worst NPS ratings we’ve ever had in our 3+ years in business.

In this episode, I discuss what I saw, why it happened, how we track NPS, and also dive into the psychology of negativity in success.

Trevor Mauch has started several businesses over the years and is the CEO of Carrot, but his previous businesses grew to trap him in a life he simply wasn’t loving.

Working too many hours, on things he wasn’t passionate about, making great money but without the passion for what he was doing, and a boom and bust business model that made it hard to plan ahead.

In this CarrotCast Trevor dives into the simple concept that changed his business and life… setting “non-negotiables” that he decided to live by and build his next businesses by.

You’ll hear his journey, what those 5 non-negotiables are, and how you can create your own.

Many entrepreneurs try to go it alone for the first phase of your business career. The lone wolf. The “I’ll figure this thing out”. The rugged individualist.

But eventually, we discover that there are other people out there way smarter in many parts of business and life that I can learn from… and if I can get around a group of amazing people consistently it can really uplevel my game.

I went through that conversation myself 7 years ago and joined my first Mastermind.

In this episode of the CarrotCast I talk about Masterminds with my guest, Jason Medley, the founder of the Collective Genius.

Wholesaling and flipping are the gateway “drug” to long-term investing like my guest today focuses on.

Jason is one of my greatest entrepreneurial inspirations, a good friend of mine, and one of the most amazing real estate investors and community CHANGE AGENTS I’ve ever known.

In this episode Jason breaks down how he grew his outdoor advertising business to over 600 billboard faces in Ohio, how to strategically buy properties in the same area and bring businesses in your community wants and gain equity in those businesses (in addition to the cash flow from your property), and why he’s almost single-handedly changing his small town community in Ohio.

If you’re not inspired by the end of this call I don’t know what will get you going.

What lessons can we learn from Apple Computer when it comes to building a business? 

Tons, but one, in particular, is how important it is to build an “integrated product suite” that all work in tandem to help more clients and add multiple streams of revenue from the same user base.

How can real estate investors and agents create an “integrated product suite” as well?

Our guest, Matt Aitchison, has done just that. See how Matt has been able to cut through the clutter and turn more prospects into revenue than his competition by one by one adding partnerships in his company to offer services all of his prospects need.

"A" players, as many people call the best of the best employees… aren’t easy to come by.

But there is a way that you can increase your chances of grabbing the attention of "A" players and hiring them onto your team.

"A" players can often make 10x the impact that a "B" player can make and Carrot CEO Trevor Mauch shares how to structure your company to make "A" players want to work for you, how to create your hiring process so it filters out the "B" and "C" players, and how to motivate A players to come work for you.

It’s not a “copy and paste” solution so be ready to get to work and fundamentally change the way you’re currently looking for great people.

Well in this episode Trevor Mauch, Carrot CEO, walks through how they use the Kolbe test to help identify the gaps we need to fill in our company, the personality type that person should be, and how to really add the afterburners to your business by adding team members that complement your skillset and the way you work.

How can you grow your business to make you the only viable option for leads without having to go door to door or make cold calls?

How can you tell a more influential story to cut through the clutter and become a driving force behind that story?

How do you create a credible brand where before leads even reach out, they're likely to go with you because of what you've done in your community?

So many investors and agents fall into the short term marketing "tactics" trap and lose focus on building the foundation for an amazing long-term business.

On this episode of the CarrotCast, Ryan Fletcher host of the Agent Marketing Syndicate Podcast joins us to discuss gaining control of your business and avoiding the some of the "tactics" that may lead you down the wrong path.

EP 6: How To Talk To A Motivated House Seller + Getting Your First Deal Closed w/ Brian Evans

In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Brian Evans, investor, and owner of The First Deal. The First Deal focuses on helping new investors close their first deal or their first 100 deals.

Brian's real estate journey started from a spot where not many other real estate investors find themselves, working on Wall Street in the Trump building.

One day he came home to find a book from his Father waiting for him. There was a post-it note on it that read "Son, read this, take notes, let's talk. Dad". That book changed his life, his way of thinking, and drove him into the excitement of real estate.

From there, he practically forced two real estate investing brothers to hire him as an apprentice. WITHOUT PAY. He learned the industry and closed his first deal with them in 2004 for $42,000. He hasn't looked back since.


In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Alex Pardo, wholesaler, and entrepreneur in Miami, Florida. He originally wanted to be a corporate CEO and was accepted into GE’s Financial Management Program, but found that 70-80 hour work weeks wasn’t going to be his future.

He chose to backpack around Europe for a period of time until he had that “ah-ha” moment…to venture into real estate wholesaling.

He found that by getting away from the corporate “structure” he was able to drive a personal mindset shift, create the lifestyle he wants and continue to make the lives of others around him better.

Since that mindset shift in 2005, his real estate business has gone through many phases. He now has a team of employees that allows him the freedom to work on other real estate and entrepreneur projects that fuel his passions.

Also, for business owners, there can be a “trust” mental block when allowing employees have the freedom to do their jobs. Daniel dives into how he struggled with trust and how he has been able to change his mindset when he hires and delegates employees.

But what do the experts, the people who do PPC marketing every single day… for active investors around the country… do to get the highest ROI out of their campaigns?

What tips and tricks have they learned as they’ve driven hundreds of thousands (or millions) of clicks and hundreds of thousands of leads to squeeze more return on investment out of their PPC?

Well, that’s what our guest today, Dan Barrett, and I chat about.

Not only is Dan a superhero fan, as his office shows, but he’s a huge fan of data (like I am). Data is pretty nerdy, but it’s what pays the bills here at Carrot for our high achieving investor clients because when you have the data you have the advantage over those who don’t.

So enjoy this conversation I have with Dan, CEO of AdwordsNerds, and get a glimpse into his world as an entrepreneur, what he’s passionate about, his story, but also his tips to ramp up the effectiveness of your Google PPC marketing for motivated house sellers.

Enjoy :-)
