When was the last time you went to the grocery, loaded up the basket with food, and put your groceries in the car without paying? I’m guessing … “Never”.
When you approach your mentor and ask if you can “pick their brain” or “get their input”, what you are really saying is “As opposed to paying you the appropriate amount of money you deserve for your time and years of expertise, let me spend a few hours with you so that I can get all you have to offer for $2.00 or the price of a cup of coffee.”
Realize What You Are Willing To Give In Exchange
The best mentoring relationships require give and take. Can you offer something particular in exchange for your mentor’s time if you are getting a freebie? When investing in real estate, you have several methods or strategies available… If you have internet or web design skills, maybe you can trade services. At least, be sure to offer. Sometimes that is all it takes; just the offer to reciprocate and to let them know you will be there when they are ready to collect.
My Final Thoughts
Don’t be an “Askhole”. It all comes down to what is best for business and enabling real estate professionals to stay in alignment with the things they really care about.
How do you invest in your wholesaling business? Pay for real estate classes and join investment clubs. Spend money on advertising and presentations. Hire an assistant or a Virtual Assistant to help you maintain a professional image and spend time in the community networking. Wholesalers need to be out and about to know what is going on and find the great deals before anyone else. Once you have mastered the art of wholesaling, you are better prepared to make your own investments in distressed properties, rehab them and flip them for profit. With these best ways to wholesale properties tips, you’ll know the timelines for success and become a better negotiator when the dollars are bigger and your own.
