I was working the third shift for the railroad, and like you, I had bills to pay and responsibilities. Working at the railroad is no cakewalk. Picture working outside in all weathers – rain, snow, 100 degree heat – performing manual labor, inspecting stuffy trains. The only good things were the benefits and the pay. And I needed that paycheck at the end of every two weeks just to make ends meet.
Sure, I wanted a better life, and I’d ask myself how did all those other people get ahead? What was different about them? Was it pure luck? Were they smarter than everyone else? Did they have a rich uncle who set them up in a great business?
This led me to a really important discovery, and I mean really important. Listen up! The people who get ahead in life financially do things differently. Differently… what do I mean by that, you might ask? Well, they used OPM, OPI & OPE:
The key to most successful businesses in America is that they use a combination of these elements.
I realized that if I could use this same strategy, then I could get the same results. It seemed achievable for me. I didn’t have any extra money or a brilliant new idea, but, I knew that more millionaires created their fortunes through Real Estate than any other profession. So, I had my vehicle – Real Estate.
I started part-time, looking at houses and checking out the property markets in neighborhoods, while at the same time working out how to finance my business. It was scary and slow in the beginning, and I really had to learn what works and, more importantly, what doesn’t work.
When I initially began working in Real Estate, I didn’t close on a single property. I was completely unaware of what not to do and what tactics to avoid. Then I made some targeted changes and developed different strategies to transform my business. I then successfully purchased a duplex, triplex and a single family house.
The next year I bought 28 single family homes. Over the next four years, I bought a minimum of 36 houses a year and today I have bought and sold over 400 houses. All this, from a system I created where you buy properties using little or no money down.
The first thing you have to do is start believing that you can do this. Trust me, you can. Some people still believe you need money to buy a house – that is a myth! You can buy houses without credit or money, and I will show you how. Exciting, isn’t it?!
