Just getting started in real estate investing?

Or do you already have a few properties and are looking to grow your portfolio?

Either way, you can’t make it about money. It’s more about helping other people grow!

That’s true of anything you do in business and when learning new skills. Once you do, you go through a growth phase until you become an expert. Next thing you know you are teaching other people how to excel at what you do.

That’s how it happened for me… and it’s exactly how it happened for a number of my associates who are real estate entrepreneurs.

This isn’t some big secret to success.

As any successful person will tell you, it’s all about growth and contribution. First you grow and then you contribute. It’s that simple.

That’s what I talk about in this short video:

To excel in anything requires you to give back.

Have you ever hear of the six core human needs?

I didn’t until I stumbled across a cool Tony Robbins podcast where he was sharing this information.


  1. Certainty
  2. Variety
  3. Significance
  4. Love and Connection
  5. Growth
  6. Contribution

I won’t explain the basic needs to you here.

You can easily Google them.

In fact, there are too many articles written on these needs to count.

What I can say is that they truly are the basic needs of every human being on the planet. The first four are more personal needs; the last two are spiritual needs.

Truth is that the list goes further than the basic six, but this is a good start.

For me the latter two are the most critical to your success. They serve a higher purpose.

Once you are sure of what you are doing, you have tried a few different things in real estate and have found your niche, once you have established yourself as an expert in that niche and you begin helping others with an open heart, connecting the dots and individuals so more deals can be done faster… well, you are going to keep growing and contributing! (That feels great and feeds the soul.)

If you do things right, you will be in a constant and consistent growth and contribution phase.  – Tweet  

If you do things right, you will be in a constant and consistent growth and contribution phase.

You will learn something new, grow by getting better at it until you have mastered it and then you will contribute to the niche by sharing your information by training and leading others.

It took me a few years to get to the point where I could teach others to do deals in real estate. But now it’s something I absolutely love to do!

I’m in a constant teaching and sharing mode yet I’m still learning new things all the time. That’s what makes doing deals in real estate so fun and exciting.

That’s what I want for you, too.

If I can be of any help at any time, just let me know.  ; )

Now it’s time for the question of the day:

Which phase are you in… growth or contribution… and how are you going to continue in both?

Leave your answers under my video on my YouTube channel. Or get your conversation started in my Facebook fan page. If you haven’t done these things already, why not? I’m waiting there to answer your questions and pay it forward!!

If you haven’t downloaded my book yet, it’s also time to do that. So, do it now:
