In this episode, we’re going to be talking about some of the common obstacles that a lot of beginners face getting into this business. If you’ve done a deal or two, you’re not a beginner anymore. But if you’ve been going through the courses, watching the videos, listening to the podcasts, maybe even dabbled a little bit and done some research and made some offers, but you haven’t done your first deal yet, you’re a beginner. And guess what? All of us started as beginners. My guest on this episode is Viktor Jiracek and he specializes in helping beginners to get unstuck.
Don’t fall into the beginners’ trap of setting unrealistic goals and giving up too quickly. You need to take one step at a time and persevere. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice. The most important thing is to take action. You need to make a lot of offers if you want to do deals. Once you get started, it will change your life.
Getting into hot markets is tough for beginners. It’s better to focus on smaller secondary markets, perhaps a little more rural. You can get a lot more traction in these areas because there’s less competition. Prices get bid up less and sellers are talking to fewer people.
There’s a ton of free resources that you can use to take your first steps. Facebook groups, Craigslist, Driving for Dollars. Don’t be afraid to admit that you’re a beginner. It takes the pressure off if you’re not pretending to be an expert when you’re not. Use the opportunity to speak to people and learn from them. Ask lots of questions.
Figure out your numbers and set clear goals. Write them down. Clearly define where you are now and where you want to get to and it will be easier to figure out the steps you need to take to get there.
