I’m very excited about 2015 and all the potential that it holds. While 2014 saw my wholesaling business change dramatically I was able to pivot and keep it going. I did not achieve all my 2014 goals (like releasing SILMv7) but I was very close!
The relationship I’ve built with Brandon Turnor (of biggerPockets loar) has lead me to a couple opportunities that should really put me out there. I’m a in introvert by nature so I don’t like directing the spotlight towards myself. Just like many of you I’m sure, I underrate my accomplishments and feel that like a Pretender sometimes.
My 15 Minutes of Fame
What I always fail to remember is that my struggles are valuable experience. I can share this experience in the hope that it can help a few people here and there. Luckily Brandon (and Josh Dorkin) recognize this and invited me…YES ME…to be on their Bigger Pockets Podcast.
Excuse my french, but that was my reaction when they asked me. So last week, we all jumped on a skype call and talked about my experiences for almost an hour. Surprisingly I was more excited then nervous. Those guys are a class act and make the entire show easy on their guests.
The Podcast will go live on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas to me right??
- Keeping going despite failure
- Finding a partner
- Lead generation with a website
You can find the Bigger Pockets Podcast right here
The Gifts Keep On Giving
If being asked to be on the blogcast wasn’t great enough, Josh Dorkin also asked me if I wanted to write for their blog. There have been some really successful investors write for that blog (Steph Davis, Sharon Vornholt and J.Scott just to name a few). To be included in that group is simply an honor.
I should start writing for them soon after the new year. It’s going to be a challenge for sure, but one that I want to tackle head on. I am still going to concentrate on my blog first and foremost, but BP will be a close second. Some of what I’ll be covering in my posts are…
- Wholesaling while working a 9to5 Job
- Inbound Leads
SI Lead Manager v7
Ho Ho Ho….I am So Close to releasing my baby! One thing I failed to realize is how much has to be planed, setup and figured out once the application is finished. There are all the Help Tutorials…the setup and install package…the delivery method…the bug report and user question system…the payment processor…the sales funnel…the affiliate program….AHHHHHHH
I’m churning my way through this stuff and can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I was originally shooting for a mid December launch….Whoops….did that pass already? Seiously though, If I can get a good weeks worth of work in next week then I should be able to release the Software 2nd Week of January.
Teaser Video: Creating a Mailing Campaign and printing the first Mailing.
With all that said, have a very happy new year and I’ll leave you with my favorite Christmas commercial of all time…
