BiggerPockets Podcast 403: Developing a Millionaire’s Mindset and Overcoming Limiting Beliefs with Performance Coach Jason Drees

Whoa. Today we have the man Brandon credits with helping him "go big" in business and life: his performance coach, Jason Drees. In fact, Jason works with a bunch of real estate investors... and today he shares tools for getting your mindset right and getting out of your own way as you grow your portfolio! You'll love hearing Jason explain what a coach does, how he worked with Brandon to turn a weakness (fear of fundraising/rejection) into a strength ($10M+ raised in 2020), and the reason why some of his clients are thriving despite COVID-19. Plus: about halfway through, there's an absolute gem when the guys discuss the planning models they use to attack challenges. Jason suggests a small but powerful mindset shift, and we're not exaggerating when we say this one tip may cause you to rethink your whole plan... and unleash new potential you didn't know you had! This is a real, vulnerable episode where both Brandon and David both discuss holding onto identities and beliefs that no longer served them. So what did you think?

BiggerPockets Podcast 402: Identifying Your Best Market, Neighborhood, and Property in 8 Steps with Brandon and David

When it comes to pulling the trigger on a rental property, what we have is a "paradox of choice." So. Many. Options. It's easy to suffer from Fear of Missing Out, and it's even easier to get overwhelmed by the vast array of options out there. That's where today's show comes in: press play, and Brandon and David will guide you through an 8-step process to closing on that first (or next) rental property. Along the way, they share the tools (BP Insights) and team members ("Core Four" and more!) they use to guide decisions about where and how to deploy their capital. Your action steps start with clarifying your goals, then we move to comparing markets and sizing up different neighborhoods using school district ratings and crime data. Next, we tackling finding a deal – whether you're using an agent, a wholesaler, turnkey provider, or going off-market yourself... and how to avoid getting into trouble by "trusting your gut and hoping" when you're in an unfamiliar territory. If you invest out of state, should you fly out? What about systems and standard operating procedures once you've got a tenant in the property? We answer all those questions, and more.
