My history is typically, “All American.” Having grown up in a small town in Iowa, my brother and I worked with our Dad, who owned a successful commercial painting contract business. By the age of 24, I started my own business in Houston, Texas, painting water towers, silos, and radio towers. You name it – I painted it!
In the midst of preparing a bid on a huge job, I was required to take a respirator test. This test requires you to breathe into a test tube to see what your lung capacity is. I failed the test miserably. My doctor warned me that if I wanted to live to be forty, I needed to quit painting immediately and move to a higher altitude to clean out my lungs. Therefore, I packed-up my family and moved to Colorado.
Once located in Colorado, though, I had no idea of what to do next! Having been successful in the painting business, retirement was a thought. However, two months later, I was climbing the walls and searching for something…else…to do. By happenstance, I wandered into a real estate office, and that is where it all began.
This Realtor was sitting at his desk with his feet propped up. Curiously, I asked him if this is what he did all day. He informed me that he ate donuts and waited for clients to walk in from newspaper ads. He said he earned $50,000 per year and averaged ten properties per year. Being the assertive person that I am, I figured I could do the same thing, but I would sell one hundred houses and make some REAL MONEY.
My first year as a Realtor, I sold seventy-nine houses. My second year I sold one hundred and twenty three! I was really making a name for myself, and loving every minute of it! In August of 1994, I was introduced to Mike Ferry, and he became my mentor.
My first year as an investor, I sold eighty properties. The money was ten times better and I was helping folks. I was hooked and have been investing since then. To date, I have sold well over 800 properties.
A couple of years ago, I met Dwan at a seminar…and we married the following year. Since then we have blended a wonderful family of five, we travel and speak together, and are loving life! Real estate has been very good to both of us. We wish the same for you!
Folks, you truly can make as much money – as you are willing to work for. There is nothing keeping you from earning a million dollars each and every year. The difference between earning good money and great money is the way in which you speak. Learning my communication skills will change your life.
