I agree with author Nick Vertucci – it takes balls to succeed. The thing is, there's no such thing as a sure winner when it comes to investing. However, if you make smart investments consistently, you will get ahead. Check out Nick's inspiring story and learn how he took himself from rags to riches by investing in real estate.
Have you ever left a closing appointment and felt like you did something wrong? That's a red flag! At the end of the day, real estate is about helping clients, not making the biggest commission possible. But that doesn't mean you can't make a great living at the same time. How to Sell Houses without Selling Your Soul explains how to feel great about your job while hitting impressive sales numbers. I highly recommend giving it a read.
Mark Podolsky talked about his land-investment strategy on episode 523 of Real Estate Rockstars. In his recent book, Mark covers his complete system in detail.

Pick up a copy of Mark's book and get the details on his system so that you can set yourself up for success with land investments.
Mindset is a big part of the first step in my best-selling book, 6 Steps to 7 Figures. It really is THAT important. Author Ryan Snow obviously feels the same way.

If you're still chasing the dream of a six-figure income in real estate, this book will help you achieve it.
