The truth is, those who are serious about taking their real estate investing game or business to the next level hire a coach! Everyone needs a coach, even the experts. Think about the following:
Where would LeBron James be without a coach? Would he still have some serious athletic skills? Of course. But coaches have helped hone his skills and he’s one of the top athletes in the nation.
The wise CEO knows he needs help and there are hundreds of programs out there designed to help coach CEO’s into being the best leader they can be for their company.
Small business owners
A small business rarely grows into a larger business without outside help and consulting.
Real Estate Investors
We’ve been in the real estate investing business for years now and we haven’t run across a single real estate investor who is highly successful who has not had a coach. The successful real estate investors know they need help and advice from a qualified coach.
A while back I realized that I needed some outside perspective in my business in order to take it to the next level. So we hired a coach. I can’t tell you the difference coaching has made in my life and business. Having a coach/mentor helped guide us, encourage us, challenge us, and give us new ideas and direction which has made all the difference. Certainly in our deals, but also in our perspective and motivation.
There are numerous reasons you should get a coach. Here are just a few:
Practicing the above is smart indeed, starting off on the right foot doing real estate investing deals is a MUST HAVE to good financial sense.
In this type of coaching, you meet with your coach one on one. Coaches charge a pretty high rate for this, because you have direct access to them. It can be set up like a full day of initial coaching, and then you meet at regular intervals after that, and then unlimited email coaching.I used to offer hourly one-on-one coaching, but as my business grew, my time grew more limited. Now I offer this kind of super intense coaching through my “EARN AS YOU LEARN DIRECT ACCESS”. This is for people who are really serious about taking their real estate investing business to the next level. To truly commit my one-on-one quality time to each apprentice, while they are doing deals I have a VERY limited number of spots available each year and would-be apprentices must be a good fit for one of these unique spots.
I offer a scaled down version of coaching. You’ve heard me talk about my “EARN AS YOU LEARN”. It’s not a traditional one-on-one coaching concept, but is virtual coaching via group with training by Roberta Eastman, Business Management Medic; guest trainers and me when I’m available. I developed this program to specifically aid and coach those of you going through this course at a very affordable rate. Most one-on-one coaching is beyond the price range of those just starting to build their business and I really want to see each and every one of you succeed! Use your exclusive facebook page link to post your questions.
At this point I don’t have many spots left, but I do have a few if you are interested in getting some feedback, having your own personal forum to interact and post questions you may have, and have your deals graded and give feedback to you on your assignments. Here there is ample opportunity to get your questions asked and answered.
So if you need extra help, it’s out there for you. I only take on 60 “EARN AS YOU LEARN WITH DIRECT ACCESS” members total at a time because of the personalized nature of the coaching and it’s first come, first served.
Group coaches teach a whole group of people at the same time. Obviously, it’s less expensive than one-on-one coaching, but you still get a whole lot out of the experience. Sometimes people can weave in some short one-on-one coaching into the group coaching, but for the most part it’s a “one to many” format.
When Roberta and I teach our monthly Real Estate Investors Wealth Academy Classes, via our “EARN AS YOU LEARN” this is a form of group coaching. We teach a concept to many people and you ask and get answered your questions from other participants as they come up in the coaching presentation. Use your facebook page link to post your questions.
Mastermind coaching is a little different. Usually you have a facilitator. That’s the coach. But there’s 12 to 15 people in a room or on a conference line and each person gets to say what’s going right for them and then, where they need some help. They get interaction from the entire group and maybe a little more interaction from the facilitator. It just depends on how the mastermind is set up.
I pay a steep price to participate in my Mastermind group with Roberta each year. However, it’s been worth its weight in gold through what I’ve learned, how my Mastermind leader and group have been able to help me hone my business and through the many connections I have made with others in our industry. And we have set up many joint venture projects with the members of our MasterMind group – webinars, product collaborations, speaking engagements, etc.
Similar to the concept of a laser itself, laser coaching might be a three-hour shot of coaching on one specific issue that may or may not have some follow up attached. Usually coach and student pinpoint one very specific issue that needs attention and in a short period of time address that issue or obstacle and together come up with an action plan.
Coaching is fundamental to any business. I know it’s hard to justify the investment until you see first-hand just how helpful coaching can be to your success. Once you see how effective and worthwhile a coach is, you will never want to be without one again!
