I have spent the last 33 days circling the globe meeting business owners and entrepreneurs from all over the world, and there are a lot of people that have the exact same problem. It doesn’t matter the business that you have, the industry you are in, or where you want to grow your brand personally, everyone has the same problem.
Another coaching success story. Thabo Eric Mashale was a guy who drove me to the airport with a crappy car, and 1 year after coaching with us he has 5 cars now, runs companies in Cape Town and Johannesburg, owns a beautiful home in Midrand and wants to move in Dainfern. He has his own driver so he can network with his clients and started another business which is a networking group. He is black and did not do it with BEE government. I am so proud of him and he is now a huge success story because of my coaching. Please share this amazing success story. #CoachingWorks#MillionaireUnderdog #FamilyFirst
I get so many emails and messages each day on how to handle betrayal, haters, nay-sayers and non-believers. Let me be the first to tell you that it’s not an easy thing. As Sylvester Stallone told me personally. you have to take that negative energy and sort of turn it into a driving force. People often wonder why I fight back against haters and why do I even give them attention. Well perhaps like Stallone says, I have used that fuel to drive me and not give them the satisfaction of failing. Haters are like bullies and they often either keep hating because no one ever says anything back or they hate because they can’t do it themselves and would rather see you fail because if you do, they feel better about themselves for not succeeding.
There is no way around it, if you are a real estate investor you will get sued. Real estate investors are often vilified as sharks and bottom feeders that prey on the misfortunes of the little old lady who didn’t know what was going on. Yes there are bad apples in every industry but it doesn’t mean that the whole orchard is poisoned. If anything, it is real estate investors who increase value of neighborhood properties by taking homes nobody wants, fixing them up, and substantially increasing their value. Yet special interest groups and “do-gooders” don’t see it that way, instead they focus on the profit real estate investors make rather then the good we do.If you are a real estate investor there are three things certain in life, death, taxes, and getting sued.
After buying and selling over 500 properties in a 5 year span, there is something that I see time and time again.When you save a distressed homeowner, you are their hero at the closing, but quickly turn into the bad guy as soon as that first person comes along and tells them they got taken advantage of, even if it isn’t true.Investors are then shaken down by free legal service that, of course, believes every word that this distressed homeowner is saying.I have learned that these distressed homeowners will say anything and everything to keep their home, even if it means lying.If you tell a lie for long enough, you come to believe it yourself, which is exactly what happens to distressed homeowners after years of litigation.
First, when you get sued, you want to fight on the principle that you are right and they are lying, even though you will quickly realize that the legal system is not about right or wrong, but how much your lawyer will take from you.While you are fighting this, the distressed homeowner will be enjoying free rent, free legal service, and free press, and you are left with nothing but a big legal bill.Let’s be honest here, even if you win (like I have), you lose.The system is unfair, but I have now accepted it as part of doing business.As a result, I would like to offer you some wise words of wisdom.
