I must admit I have enjoyed writing about my probate real estate business and what it has meant to my family over the last 23 years. It has made the difference as this niche has kept me a top producing agent even during the downturn markets as well as a successful investor. Probate Homes have not only kept me earning Six Figures but it has also allowed me to meet some great people (executors and heirs) and gave me a sense of accomplishment helping these people in their time of loss do whatever was in the best interest for their family. It really has been a blessing that I found this niche back in 1987. I have passed my probate system on to many over the last 18 years. I will continue to offer this info to agents and investors in hopes some will stick it out until they have success.
What I want to talk about now is another Great Niche which came to me by a broker friend I know and trust. This was a complete different business then what I have been doing for 38 years but the end result is actually better. For the past 11 months I have been working in a niche many have never heard of. I'm actually in the ground floor and the upside is even better than Probate Real Estate could ever be. I'm still working my probates but I scaled back some of my hours 11 months ago and started doing this business part time with my son and the real estate agents who brought this to us. What has happened has been beyond belief. I really want to pass this on to my real estate community.
Does it really matter what the earning vehicle is if we are earning? I don't think so because it's all about money at the end of the day so we can control our time. Time is is the most cherished possession we can have. Money dictates how much time we can be with our family, do the things we want to do and with the people we want to do them with. Money by itself isn't the golden goose but the Time back which money gives us is what counts. It's why I looked at probate in the first place as I wanted more time with my family as they entered their teens so I could coach and travel with them. Probate allowed me to cut my time down 2/3 from 60 to 20 hours per week and keep my earnings up. It wasn't Probate Real Estate but the money which I could make which gave me the time I was looking for with my family. What a blessing.
Now with this new opportunity which I have been working for the last 11 months I find myself in a position where in another month or two I will be earning the money good real estate cycles bring BUT I will have even more time to enjoy with my family. It's been an amazing ride. Not easy and I have been working hard around my 70 hour real estate week but now my real estate has been cut to 40 hours, I work this new business around 10 to 15 hours per week and I'm building something that probate real estate could never give me; RESIDUAL INCOME!
My son has left his TV Producer job and brought his wife home to be a stay at home mom all within the last 11 months. He is a few weeks away from a position in this new company which will pay him more than he has ever made in real estate or the television industry PLUS he has more time for his kids now than ever before and his TIME back. I have watched him work, never second guessing those who where training him and then in turn working with me to bring me along with him. Again, you really don't know what you don't know!
So I write this because I want all in the real estate industry to understand big money is there and in a ground floor opportunity which is poised to explode in 2012. The upside with this new business is bigger than probate real estate could ever be for me so I'm going to follow it through. This time I don't have to reinvent the wheel (probate system trial and error process) but just follow a system which has been laid out by others and prov-en over the last 19 years.
This business goes hand in hand with real estate helping your clients at the close of escrow. You don't have to stop your real estate business just add to it. It's win/win and now that I have worked it, earned good money and I'm building a residual income I'm sharing it with my Diamond Farming Probate Students and the Active Rain community. No matter where you live you can benefit with this business as it's in every State in the USA and in 23 Countries on 4 continents. I encourage those who may have an interest in earning extra money (more than you can imagine) around what they are currently doing to contact me for more information. We are looking for business partners to join our team. You need to have a desire for something better than what you are doing and be coachable. It's not only about earning money because you may earn all you need but maybe to have the same money or more but with your time back as this is residual income. We do the work once then we are paid monthly, over and over again.
You don't know what you don't know so keep an open mind (like I did in 2010), check it out then make an informed, value judgment if this may be for you.
We are having a Complimentary Webinar on this business, this Thursday, 11/17 at 8pm. It is about 45 mins and my son who is a rising leader in the company and expanding this business all over the San Francisco Bay Area will be presenting how we are being page every time someone pays their Energy and other bills. My Diamond Farming Probate Students are coming on board as they have this earning mentallity so come join us. We are looking for sharp, go-getters who will take this and run but with guidance, leadership and mentors.
