My partnership with Gavin Timms has been great for my coaching business because I love the networking and Gavin loves creating the systems that support our students. The best kind of partnerships are a win-win for both parties, but it might take a couple of tries to find a partner that lifts you up instead of drags you down.
Some of Gavin’s best partnerships reflect the same collaboration that we have together. He likes working on the operations side, so he prefers partners who are happy to get on the phone and lock up a deal. When he met Melissa, one of his newest partners from Alabama, he knew she was the one when she said that she was going to call a seller until they said yes. That’s the kind of energy he loves!
Expanding into a new market means you’re going to need someone inside that market to be your eyes and ears. Just like you’re checking a new partner out, they’re getting a good look inside your business too. As you’re building trust with your new partner, you absolutely have to deliver on your promises so that they know you’re worth partnering with. If you’re ready to get off the sidelines and jump into real estate investing, the opportunities are there for you.
