You know guys, that’s a two-edged sword. Everyone talks about debt with things go right, but I’ve been there with that when it doesn’t go right. It’s like right now people say oh you know what I just start off the loan and take a little piece. What for? 12% sounds pretty nice and I still get to go hang out with my daughter. I want more life. I don’t want more drama or more headaches. Ramon Gonzalez
I talk to a lot of real estate investors and agents as you can imagine and one thing that pops up from time to time is people ask the question of, “Am I an investor?” A lot of people call themselves real estate investors when, in fact, they’re not putting any money into an asset to invest in, they’re usually on the arbitrage side of things, being the middleman, which there’s nothing wrong with. Being the middle person where you’ve got one person on one side that needs something, you’ve got one person on the other side that needs something, you’re in the middle to connect the two to make a profit from it. That’s an amazing business model. But are you an investor?
One thing I want to toss out is the best real estate investors that I know, the best real estate entrepreneurs that I know, are the people who know market cycles really, really well. Can you read the market, engage what you should be doing at what point in the market to really maximize what you get out of your business, really maximize your income, your wealth, your revenue? Well, we’ve got a special guest on today, Ramon Gonzalez, one of our Carrot clients, and I’m insanely pumped to have him on this episode. We had a few audio issues at the start, the audio is a little bit muffled. You can hear amazingly well through it, so it clears up towards the end so don’t let that distract you.
Ramon is an amazing, successful investor. He’s going to walk through his journey, he’s going to walk through how he’s gone through and really modeled the market cycles. You’re going to see the clear path from the time that he started in real estate back in 2004 or five, on what he did during that phase. Then, what he did in seven and eight. He took two years off and then what he did the next cycle and then what he’s doing right now and what you guys should start to look at too.
There are way too many real estate entrepreneurs that are in this current market cycle that are doing the wrong thing. They’re either going to make you broke or you’re missing the massive opportunity that there is right now to build wealth. A lot of people are active and doing bunches of things but they’re doing the things that are not going to position them to build wealth. They’re about six, 10, 12, 14 months behind the real estate market cycles. Are you one of those people?
Also, you’re going to hear his inspiring journey. We’re going to start to talk about mission, purpose, all those kinds of things, unique ability, really, really fun conversation with Ramon.
