From Laid Off to 300,000 a Month using Online Business/ w Pat Flynn
Play • 33 min

#134: We are all in the midst of having to make pretty significant change in our lives. Maybe your work has been completely cut out from you and you’re struggling to find an answer. 

That’s exactly where our guest on today’s show, Pat Flynn, was in 2008. After losing his dream job as an architect, Pat created a website to help others pass the LEED test, an exam many have to take in the architecture industry. People began leaving feedback on his site, with many saying his content was so good, they would pay for it. 

So Pat wrote a study guide that dove even deeper into techniques to pass the LEED and sold it for $19.99 on his website. During its first month on the website, Pat generated $7,008.55 and that’s when it began to click for him.

Since then, he has created various businesses under the Flynndustries LLC umbrella and uses them as case studies in both his blog and podcast. To date, Flynn's businesses have generated over $3 million in revenue and now he works with people all over the world to teach them how to do the same.

Pricing a Storage Unit - How to Know Exactly What to Charge to Increase Value
Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast! This is your host AJ Osborne. Today we have the big daddy of them all… unit pricing. If you own, operate, or are looking at investing in storage, have you every asked yourself: What should you be charging for the units at your storage facility? How do you know what the storage market can handle in your area? How much can you increase the rate of your storage units? What’s the BEST price you should charge for your storage units? If you’ve asked these questions before, you’re certainly not alone. You’d be surprised how many storage facilities we come across that are extremely under valued. They’re not charging the rates they could be. This is a great problem to have as an owner or investor, because you can immediately and simply resolve this issue. Not only that, you can increase your revenue by incredible amounts. This is what we’re going to jump into today. We’re going to cover everything unit pricing and help to answer all the questions you might have in regard to pricing units. To do this, we need to be able to accurately measure supply, demand, how to increase storage demand, value of our tenants (even over time), finding your ideal customer, and much more. One super important thing I want you to take away from this episode is to realize that each and every single one of the storage units at your facility is an individual product. I talk more on this idea on the podcast and why this frame of mind is so important. As always, thanks a ton for all your amazing support everybody. Thanks for listening!

BiggerPockets Podcast 437: How Your “Worst Case Scenario” Can Set You Free From a Job You Hate with Marie Forleo
Marie Forleo, world class coach, marketer, and author, grew up with a mother that did everything. Whether it was retiling the bathroom, fixing a leak in the roof, or performing electrical engineering on small appliances, her mother seemed to be able to figure out almost anything. One day she told Marie “everything is figureoutable”, which became the mantra for her career. Fast forward a decade or so, Marie is working on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, surrounded by the mega rich. She was stressed out and felt that she wasn’t in the right place. After a prayer and a cry, Marie knew she needed to get out from a job that was slowly killing her. She made the jump and went after coaching, without any experience, money, or clients. Before she left her job she asked herself, “what is the worst case scenario if I leave”. She calculated it out, wrote it down, and realized, the worst case scenario really wasn’t all that bad. Marie strongly believes that although you can be a victim of circumstances, you should never victimize yourself and tell yourself that you “can’t” do something. Everyone has the ability to reach their full potential, but once you start putting up excuses, it’s hard to get there. “Feel the fear”, that’s what Marie told herself in those trying times, and continues to tell herself and her clients that everyday. As she puts it “Fear is really trying to tell you to move towards something”. As real estate investors, this is something we can all relate to, but often don’t put into practice. Well, now's the time to!

91: How Businesses Get Sold for Millions with Chris Younger
If you’re a new entrepreneur, it may seem like a dream to sell a business for millions of dollars. People like Chris Younger, make that dream a reality. Chris founded Class VI Partners, an investment bank that helps entrepreneurs plan and prepare businesses for sale. Chris will be the first to admit that selling isn’t an easy process, it takes time, patience, and a lot of documentation. Chris compares selling your business to running a marathon: you need to be in it for the long haul to finish strong. He helps owners reach a price point that works for their future, and helps create the processes around selling that enable a new owner to carry the business to new heights. For many owners, success in selling comes from doing the hard work upfront, not putting it off for your future self (and employees) to deal with. So why would an entrepreneur want to sell? Maybe it's personal timing and they feel like they’ve given the business as much as they possibly can. It also could be business timing, the business may be seeking a new change in direction. Or it could be buying timing, a buyer comes in with the right offer, the right ability, and makes the sale. Whatever a reason for selling a business, a business owner needs to be prepared for their business to sell at some point. So even if you’re just starting out, hearing words of wisdom from Chris may net you a few more million dollars! Check the full show notes here: http://biggerpockets.com/bizshow91

MB 249: Increase Your NOI Through Cell Tower Investing – With Hugh Odom
The most successful real estate investors find creative ways to increase their NOI either by adding amenities for residents or reducing expenses. But there is a new opportunity for property owners that you may not be aware of. What if you could earn more money by leasing out a portion of your building for a 5G cell phone tower? Hugh Odom is the Founder and President of Vertical Consultants, a telecom consulting firm that has advised major corporations such as Walmart, McDonald’s and Disney, as well as government institutions like the Department of Veterans Affairs, the New York Housing Authority and the United States Postal Service. Hugh served as an attorney for AT&T for 11-plus years, and today, he leverages his expertise in the telecom industry to help real estate investors earn additional income through cell tower leases. On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Hugh joins cohost Garrett Lynch and I to explain why the cell tower industry is like oil 100 years ago, discussing what is driving the need for more cell towers and how lucrative a cell tower lease can be for investors. Hugh shares the do’s and don’ts of negotiating a cell tower lease, describing how it differs from a real estate transaction and what Hugh’s team does to help property owners with the process. Listen in to understand why cell tower investing is a safe bet for the long term and learn how YOU can take advantage of the opportunity to be a cell tower landlord! Key Takeaways Why the cell tower industry is like oil 100 years ago * Long-term agreements to lease land from property owners * Cell companies reach out if property in right location What is driving the need for more cell towers * 5G technology requires additional infrastructure * Densification makes service faster, more instantaneous * From 400K to 1.5M cell sites by 2025 The do’s and don’ts of negotiating a cell tower lease * Don’t treat as real estate transaction (e.g.: market rate) * Do determine value provider will get from space How lucrative a cell tower lease agreement can be for investors * Typically increases value of property by $1M * Renegotiate contract as provider’s revenue from site goes up How Vertical Consultants helps property owners * Level playing field (understand value you’re offering) * Source leases for large commercial property owners How to take advantage of this opportunity in cell towers * Buy properties with existing towers or rights to cell towers * Bring experts in to renegotiate lease How 5G towers differ visually from traditional cell towers * Traditional tower = 150 feet tall, up to 5K ft2 * Traditional rooftop antenna up to 500 ft2 * 5G tower = 50 ft2 with small antenna box The opportunity to become an operator of cell towers * Pay property owners in dead spots for right to lease * Buy for long-term cashflow or flip Why cell tower investing is a safe bet for the long term * Similar to highway system (infrastructure, not technology) * Change out equipment as tech improves Who Hugh serves through Vertical Consultants * Property owners with existing agreements * Owners who’ve been approached by cell company * Hotels, self-storage and shopping center developers Connect with Hugh Odom Vertical Consultants Resources Join the Nighthawk Equity Investor Club Learn More About Michael’s Mentoring Program American Tower Crown Castle SBA Communications Podcast Show Notes Michael’s Website Michael on Facebook Michael on Instagram Michael on YouTube Apartment Investor Network Facebook Group

0 to 7 Deals in a Year Using Other People's Money with Andres Bernal
Andres Bernal came to America to play tennis with only $500 in his pocket. He thought that professional tennis is what his life would end up revolving around. After playing for 2 years and being burnt out from work, Andres decided to take some advice from his family members: start buying real estate. After buying his primary residence, he started looking into multi-family homes that could make him some cash flow each month. He later put down 3.5% with an FHA loan to purchase a triplex, and rented out the bottom 2 units while he lived in the upper 3rd unit. He sold his condo, had some cash, and was ready to start investing more. Andres had some pretty creative ways of getting funding for his real estate deals. He started calling every contact in his phone, asking if they were interested in real estate, and if they were, he packaged up a deal for them. The trade? He does the work and the analysis, they do the financing. These types of partnerships have worked well for Andres and they can work for other rookies as well. His advice is to test the partnership, build the trust, and use the BiggerPockets Rental Property Calculator! The rest will fall into place. In This Episode We Cover: * Why FHA loans are a great first financing tool for rookie investors * Calculating out your “worst case scenarios” on houses * How to treat tenants so they want to stay (and will respect your home) * Why investors need to solve a problem for tenants (especially those that cause you the most trouble) * Finding local investors and investors within your existing circles * The profitability of student housing as an investment * Using social media to grow your existing network * How to set expectations for contractors * And SO much more!
