You might have heard this before, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up” from Thomas Edison. Are you stopping short of success? Consistency and desire are the differences between failure and success.
Edward Beck has been through two full real estate cycles. From doing 20+ deals per month with a large team pre-2005…to trimming down his business, but focusing on fewer, but better deals… Edward has seen it all in his market of El Paso, Texas.
Edward talks about how their real estate business almost imploded, how he picked up and rebuilt the business post-crash, and what he’s doing today to stabilize and really grow his real estate investing business.
Bandit sign wars, door knocker sorrows, and how he’s using online marketing for real estate investors and Carrot to cut through the clutter… now online marketing is his #1 source of high-profit deals.
How did he do it?
Listen to his story on how he got started in real estate investing and what led to his success. Listen to our other episodes at www.CarrotCast.com
